from which he was himself removed three days back bringing the family feud in the open At the same time Akhilesh asserted that he should have a role in deciding candidates for next year’s Assembly polls on a day when hundreds of people came out in his support which was disapproved of by party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav “I have myself congratulated SP’s UP unit president Shivpal Yadav after meeting him at his residence… I will extend all my support to Shivpalji” Akhilesh told reporters here indicating rapproachment with his uncle with whom he was engaged in a turf war His remarks came a day after he said he felt “very sad” when he was replaced with Shivpal as the state party president by his father Mulayam Singh Yadav Earlier Akhilesh had stripped Shivpal of key portfolios as a result of which his uncle had tendered resignation from the ministry as well as party post Last night after Mulayam’s intervention Akhilesh announced that Shivpal will be given back his portfolios and Gayatri Prajapati will be reinducted as Cabinet minister issues which had triggered an all-out war between the two When asked about his meeting with Shivpal Akhilesh today said in a lighter vein “You (reporters) can say anything You are saying I had lunch there but I only had tea” About his demand on ticket distribution the Chief Minister said “It’s going to be my examination (in elections) I will certainly say that much to the national president whom I like” He added that “Politics is not a game for me it is a serious business I am a player…have played football and cricket also…I don’t score self goal” In the morning hundreds of Akhilesh supporters reached the party office here demanding his reinstatement as the state president Donning red caps and carrying posters of the Chief Minister

to engage in any sloganeering or use any posters or hoardings It’s election time and everyone should go to booth level and spread awareness on the good work done by the government” “Wherever the youths go the direction changes We have a great organisation” he said On party’s poll prospects Akhilesh said “Samajwadis are at number one They surveys are pointing to it When we only promised to work in 2012 we got tremendous support and now we have fullfilled all the promises We will form government again” Mulayam defended his decision of replacing Akhilesh with Shivpal as the party’s UP unit chief saying his brother had worked “shoulder-to-shoulder” with him to bring the party to its current position At a closed-door meeting he rebuked the supporters of Akhilesh as also Shivpal for taking to the streets over a dispute involving the two “I will not let this happen in the party I have worked hard to bring it to this position This ‘tamasha’ (circus) will not be allowed” he told the SP workers according to sources As soon as Mulayam arrived at the party office here he was surrounded by party workers as well as the media The SP supremo directly went to the auditorium where the supporters of his son Akhilesh were shouting slogans demanding that he be reinstated as the party’s state unit president The SP supremo lashed out at the chiefs of the party’s front organisations — Lohia Vahani Mulayam Singh Yadav Youth Brigade Chhatra Sabha and Yuvjan Sabha — and asked them not to indulge in such protests and instead work “on the ground” to strengthen the party “We have been asked to work at the booth-level to strengthen the party Netaji (Mulayam) told us that while the BJP was actively working in the state we were involved in staging protests and asked us to shun such activities” a youth leader told PTI A Samajwadi Party worker outside Mulayam Singh Yadav’s residence (Express photo byVishal Srivastav) Earlier before meeting the SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav Youth Brigade president Mohd Aibad said “We have conveyed our feelings to Netaji that we (all the youth front organisations) will not be able to work with anyone except Akhilesh We want him back as the party’s state president The youth is feeling dejected after his removal They are depressed and even ready to immolate themselves for him (Akhilesh)” MLCs Rajpal Kashyap Anand Bhadauria and Sunil Singh Sajan all of whom had in the past held posts in the SP’s front organisations were also seen raising slogans in Akhilesh’s favour “Netaji on many occasions has said that the youth should lead We want him to bring back Akhileshji who is the undisputed leader of the youth and the poor and who has done a lot for the development of the state” Kashyap said During the protests supporters of Akhilesh were also seen burning posters of Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh Mulayam left the party office after meeting the party workers without talking to the media Meanwhile BJP attacked Akhilesh over the “Samajwadi Party drama” and said the Chief Minister should resign as he is “not able” to take his decisions on his own Congress also took a jibe at the tussle in the “Samajwadi pariwar” saying that

Resources Minister and Jhansi MP Uma Bharti on Saturday stuck to her claim that she had tortured rapists when she was Madhya Pradesh chief minister saying she had done it twice and “will do so again in future if I get an opportunity” Reacting to a report in The Indian Express that quoted former DGP S K Das as saying he could not recollect any such incident when she was the CM and he headed the police force Bharti said that she would reveal those instances after March 11 (when results of the state elections will be announced) “I will not reveal the names of policemen who acted on my instructions I will be ready to face consequences and if I get a chance in future will again do so” the former CM said in a letter sent to The Indian Express However she added she would not participate in a discussion on the topic till March 11 but answer all queries after that “The matter is so serious and expansive that I want the debate on it to be stopped till March 11” Watch What Else Is Making News She said that the Home Department had been with her as the CM for days and that she had herself instructed Das to ensure that people at police stations are not humiliated “Thousands of people die of police torture every year after being arrested Many of them are extremely poor and innocent… However that relaxation (of not humiliating people) was not meant for tyrants who had paraded nude women before crowds gangraped them and disfigured their faces with acid” she said without giving any details of such incidents Das was DGP for 16 months including the eight months from December 2003 to August 2004 when Bharti was the CM “Let the elections be over and call Das saheb for a discussion I will remind him of the two incidents because he is aware of the facts” she said “I made him the DGP (For the first time) in the state’s history the post of DGP had gone to an officer of the deprived class He fully deserved it” She further said that she would speak to anyone from constable to the SP to the IG when crimes were committed against women disabled old and deprived because she was authorised to do Bharti said she also shared “everything with the DGP though he was aware of the facts” When reached for his comments again on Saturday the former DGP said “Even if my father from heaven were to descend and ask me to do so (torture) I would not do it” Also reacting sharply to Bharti’s assertion that she had made him the DGP Das said: “Did she also post me to the previous senior positions I had held The deprived classes have risen in life some above her Which class did Ambedkar belong to” Rejecting her call for a debate the retired police officer said “Let her say what she has to say Who is she to call me for a debate Don’t drag me into all this” At the rally in Agra on Thursday Bharti had said rapists should be given a beating in public “skinned” and salt and chilli should be applied to their wounds and that she had ensured such punishment for rapists as CM In her letter Bharti said “I have a kind heart Even while washing my face in the washbasin I ensure that ants are not washed away But I can’t do injustice to an innocent or watch it happen I don’t feel any compassion for those who harass girls and rape girls and women because I don’t consider them human beings Hence they don’t have any human rights… I can forgive anyone but not those who disrespect women elderly handicapped or cow I continue to believe in handing out the strictest punishment to them” Criticising Congress leaders for slamming her comments Bharti said “Some incidents are so crystal clear that no witnesses are required Yet such criminals claim innocence in court and engage in character assassination of the victim How can such people be worthy of human rights If I get opportunities in future I will award them strictest punishment” Referring to the Naina Sahni tandoor murder case and the mysterious death of MP Congress leader Sarla Mishra she said “In both cases Congress leaders were involved It’s natural that the Congress will back such tyrants” Asking The Indian Express to organise an “ideological debate” on the issue and invite Das to participate Bharti said “This issue does not relate to elections Rather it is a matter of global concern Recently during the US elections a lot of indecent remarks were made against President Donald Trump’s wife and presidential nominee Hillary Clinton All kinds of people — educated as well as illiterate — are part of this crime” For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Top

Arquette) and representations of Persons of Color in Hollywood (Halle Berry John Legend) — all fair addresses for which it would be conspicuously unpopular for anyone to jeer against But when it comes to stands that are unpopular with the times it is often not enough to speak the truth Most notable in the recent times is Michael Moore who dared in 2003 to take the stage while accepting his Oscar for his documentary Bowling for Columbine with one intention – to make his voice heard by the Oscar audiences about injustices and untruths he saw in America and to protest against the Iraq war mere 3 days after it had begun We like non-fiction as we live in fictitious times We live in the time where we have fictitious election results that elects a fictitious president We live in a time where we have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons Whether it’s the fiction of duct tape or fiction of orange alerts we are against this war Mr Bush Shame on you Mr Bush shame on you And any time you got the Pope and the Dixie Chicks against you your time is up Thank you very much The impassioned speech ended in a chorus of booing from the Hollywood audience many of whom had just sat down from applauding Moore’s Oscar win Ironically they felt that he deserved an award for making a movie about violence and America’s long standing obsession with privately owning guns but jeered at his stance towards the President’s declaration of war and resources at another country based on ideas that were sustained only through a sustained campaign of misinformation Moore was hated threatened and stalked for delivering this speech The very popular American country music band Dixie Chicks faced a huge backlash in 2003 when singer Natalie Maines one of the Chicks declared on stage during one of their concerts in London: “We do not want this war this violence and we’re ashamed that the president of the United States is from Texas” One week later a hate campaign branding them as unpatriotic started which irreversibly hurt their careers – their record and concert ticket sales plunged They were told to “Shut up and sing” and keep their opinions to themselves In spite of a clarification a formal apology a statement by President Bush defending their freedom to express themselves and a Grammy award in 2006 their popularity would never be the same In the years to follow it became abundantly clear that both Moore and Dixie Chicks had been right about their opposition to the Iraq War It is no longer controversial for anyone to admit that Iraq war was a gross strategic mistake that was sustained through a web of lies disseminated by the intelligence agencies In 1973 Marlon Brando sent Sacheen Littlefeather a little known Native American actress to refuse his Best Actor Oscar for the role of Vito Corleone in The Godfather in protest for the lack of representation and stereotypically bad depictions of Native Americans in Hollywood The leading roles of Native Americans in several generations of Western genre films would almost always be given to white actors Aside from neglect they were portrayed in a distorted manner as quintessentially savage hostile and evil Brando’s controversial refusal of the award lent the Native American community an opportunity to raise awareness of their fight in front of 85 million viewers thus leveraging an entertainment podium for political justice in an unprecedented manner But many present that day in the Oscars audience booed Littlefeather’s speech when she started talking and following the Oscars a tsunami of criticism from industry peers and the media fell upon Brando In 1978 Vanessa Redgrave received an Oscar for the Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her role in Julia a film based on Linda Hellerman’s memoir Pentimento She shocked almost a billion viewers with her political protest speech in which she decried “Zionist Hoodlums” expressing an anti-Israel sentiment with reference to the Palestine situation who she called “an insult to the stature of Jews all over the world and their great and heroic record of struggle against fascism and oppression” It elicited her boos from some among the audience upon the mention and outright scorn from screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky who said while presenting another award “I’m sick and tired of people exploiting the Academy Awards for the propagation of their own personal political propaganda I would like to suggest to Miss Redgrave that her winning an Academy Award is not a pivotal moment in history does not require a proclamation and a simple “Thank you” would have sufficed“ Although many in the industry and the media lent their voices in her defense the expression in support of Palestinian Arabs was known to have reduced Redgrave’s opportunities in Hollywood as well as back home in England What these high-profile instances indicate is that palatability of the difficult issues addressed by these celebrities at the time when they did so and confrontationality perceived in their speeches by the audience One opinion is that celebrities should keep their political opinions to themselves as they live in a bubble and have no real understanding of the issues faced by the common person trying to put food on the table for their family Yet that is a sweeping generalization and it is indisputable as Meryl Streep’s moment amply proves that there is none better placed than an honored actor of high acclaim and esteem at an event that pulls eyeballs to put the word out there In addition to her inclusive speech it is her stature and pure brilliance as a veteran actor that affords her a special aura for effectively and popularly communicating what she did The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has been receiving generous donations after Streep emphasized the importance of press freedom in Trump era It is no surprise if Indians too wish to see Bollywood celebrities pull a Meryl at our own airbrushed award functions — perhaps revered giants like an Amitabh Bachchan or an A R Rehman can even be visualized doing so But the chances are slim because if the issue is outrightly political offending some entities with real muscular power would be a given And the consequences don’t just stop at trolling and verbal backlash Like Hollywood Bollywood wields immense soft power but what movie industries don’t have is real power — the ability to command muscles and limbs to carry out a physical threat That is where law enforcement aka police protection comes in In Hollywood popularity and career opportunities may take a setback in extreme cases?
