teams as the Pro League is one of FIH’s main qualifying tournaments (Source: FIH) Top News DAYS AFTER alleging match-fixing at the World League semifinals in London Hockey India has pulled out of one of International Hockey Federation’s (FIH’s) flagship tournaments the Pro League The decision was communicated to the FIH on Friday and the world body has begun its search for a replacement it is learnt The decision can have an impact on the Olympic qualifying hopes of the men’s and women’s teams as the Pro League is one of FIH’s main qualifying tournaments The Pro League is the newest competition on the FIH calendar and is due to launch in January 2019 The top nine men’s and women’s international teams will play each other on a home-and-away basis every weekend for six months from January to June The top four teams at the end of the league will be awarded Tokyo Olympics berth Soon after the launch FIH CEO Jason McCracken had said Hockey India was a ‘strong supporter’ of the tournament However India will not be a part of the event unless FIH convinces them otherwise According to sources India has cited the inferior ranking of the women’s team as the reason to withdraw “There will be 12 teams at the Olympics Top four from the Pro League will qualify directly for the Tokyo Games Six other teams from the World League will also make the cut while the remaining two spots will go to the next highest-ranked teams” the source said “Since India is ranked 13th in the world the chances of them qualifying for the Olympics via the Pro League were relatively less” The official added Hockey India believed there are better chances of them qualifying via the World League and hence felt Pro League wasn’t worth it “The ranking points system was finalised only after the teams were registered It wasn’t beneficial to the women’s team That is the reason Hockey India decided to pull out after confirming earlier” the source said The official added that Hockey India did not have the option to withdraw just one team and hence was forced to pull out the men’s team as well “If Hockey India would have withdrawn the teams after July 17 then we would have been slapped with a two-year international ban” the source said Massive repercussions The decision could have massive repercussions on the national team The Pro League will see the world’s best teams play each other for six months every year Pulling out of it means India will struggle to get competitive matches for half-a-year and will have to make do with lesser sides The timing of Hockey India’s decision is also curious Last week Hockey India had written to the FIH raising concerns of match-fixing attempts during recently held Hockey World League semi final in London They also accused FIH and England Hockey federation of not taking proper steps to protect players from visiting countries after former India captain Sardar Singh was called for questioning by the police in connection with a year-old

Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBechara political parties Everyone is out to get them And so they must be kept out of the ambit of Right to Information Act The Centre has told the Supreme Court that if political parties are “held to be public authorities under the RTI Act it would hamper their smooth working” “Smooth” logic indeed Representational image Reuters Unsurprisingly even in India’s logjammed parliament this is a rare moment of political unity across the board The BJP Congress CPI(M) CPI NCP and Bahujan Samaj Party were all asked by the Supreme Court in July to explain why they should not come under RTI and have to declare details about their donors and funding On the face of it unwelcome as the scrutiny might be it sounds hard to argue against it publicly The Central Information Commission had said in its order "It would be odd to argue that transparency is good for all State organs but not so good for Political Parties which in reality control all the vital organs of the State""There is no rationale for people who made the law to keep themselves out of its ambit” said Anjali Bhardwaj of the National Campaign for People’s Right to Information But the parties feel that transparency needs to stop at their doors “Political rivals with malicious intentions” could file RTI applications and adversely affect the parties’ “political functioning” says the affidavit The question is whether that is enough reason to be exempt from RTI or whether that is throwing the baby out with the bathwater People with “malicious intentions” can file RTI applications about all the other institutions that come under its purview anyway Why should political parties be afforded a higher degree of protective cover People with “malicious intentions” file FIRs and frivolous lawsuits all the time which result in unsuspecting citizens finding themselves in lock-up for a Facebook post about Azam Khan or forwarding a cartoon making fun of Mamata Banerjee What makes political parties special The parties can oppose being brought under RTI on technical grounds but are being deliberately blind to the larger spirit of RTI It is about transparency and accountability The parties no matter how they dress up their objections are basically arguing for opacity for themselves and transparency for others RTI activists Aruna Roy and Nikhil Dey do not mince words when they describe the larger message being sent out by the political class "The representatives of the people have made it clear that they do not want to be answerable to the people By removing themselves completely from the purview of the transparency law they are preventing any obligation they might have to directly answer any query from the citizen on any issue" This means that the pious talk politicians routinely trot out about the pernicious influence of money in politics is just talk If a party has no interest in having any light shine upon their financial dealings then it’s a little rich to imagine they would really be invested in cleaning the system where as Roy and Dey point out “the yawning gap between ‘statements submitted’ and real expenditures during elections is no secret” That is the elephant in the room the political parties are dancing around The other major problem is the very spirit of RTI is gutted when more and more institutions get to opt out of it If the courts the CBI and now political parties are kept outside its reach the exemption list grows more powerful than the law itself Even more disturbing it sets a precedent whereby other institutions can argue that they too be kept out of its purview because there are too many frivolous claims too much paperwork too many NGOs with suspect motivations and so on and so forth Let’s face it no one in power really wants the RTI But it exists because there is a larger consensus that it is important to the health of a democracy even if it’s a headache for those who are its targets As long as almost everyone feels the pain it works the democratic gain compensating for the shared pain As soon as more and more institutions opt out of it it starts falling apart Politicians know they do not rank high in public esteem They will claim that this RTI act will be just another way for the media/public/activists to gang up on them and try to browbeat them One justification being put forth in the affidavit is that it was never the “intent” of the government to bring parties under the RTI Subhash Agarwal one of the primary moving forces behind the RTI counters that by saying there is no need for original intent because “many bodies” who claim they are not covered by the RTI are declared public authorities by Information Commissions and High Courts Political parties were not established by the constitution or an act of parliament and therefore should not be under the RTI argues the affidavit But a body does not have to be established under the constitution to be called a public authority say RTI activists Getting funds directly or indirectly from the government can suffice Researcher Ruchi Gupta argues that because political parties’ operations are subsidised by the government it makes sense to restrict disclosure to the flow of money not internal deliberations It is obvious that a party does not want its electoral strategy its internal confabulation on the front page of the daily newspaper Gupta says unfortunately “the RTI Act does not have space for graduated transparency” Gupta feels a more level playing field would be one of mandated uniform disclosure by all parties rather than just to an RTI applicant But there is a difference between negotiating the scope and reach of the law (and the exemptions included in it) and arguing that you are outside its scope altogether That is what political parties fail to understand or choose to ignore While they may think they have a solid technical case to demand they be kept out of the purview of RTI they risk sounding arrogant in a country where the public routinely feels there’s one law for the aam aadmi and one law for the khaas aadmi At a moment when they could be statesmen they choose to be politicians And this becomes one more instance where the political class looks like it wants to stick a flashing red beacon on its head and breeze through the laws it itself makes Mumbai:Following a lower court order and rejection of bail plea by the Bombay High Court former Maharashtra minister Chhagan Bhujbal was sent back to Arthur Road jail here from a government hospital Bhujbal was sent to the Arthur Road Jail late tonight said Dr TP Lahane Dean of the JJ Hospital File photo of NCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal PTI The Bombay High Court today dismissed the NCP leader’s plea seeking bail and challenging arrest under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) While the special PMLA court directed that he be shifted from hospital to Arthur Road jail The jail authorities had told the PMLA court that Bhujbal 69 had refused to undergo angiography thrice and his continued stay in the hospital would serve no purpose High Court which rejected Bhujbal’s bail plea observed that he had failed to show that his arrest is wholly illegal null and void Bhujbal had sought bail on medical grounds He also said that his arrest by Enforcement Directorate (ED)

Hospital and Arthur Road jail that Bhujbal was in Bombay Hospital since 2 November On 27 October special judge PR Bhavake had allowed Bhujbal to be taken to a private hospital after he was told that a Thallium scan one of the three tests recommended for Bhujbal was not available at the government hospital On 28 October prison authorities took Bhujbal to government-run JJ Hospital for the other two tests He was then transferred to Bombay Hospital Bhujbal was arrested on March 14 by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the Maharashtra Sadan scam and Kalina land case in which he and his
