stance on climate change and energy security In substantive termsas large developing countries dependent on cheap fossil fuel and eager to ensure energy securityBeijings and New Delhis policies are not fundamentally different But the response of the international community is night and day On climate changeChina is almost universally viewed as most responsible for the rise of greenhouse gasses (which is true because China has surpassed the US as the biggest emitter of such gasses) and least cooperative By contrastIndia has received much less international opprobrium Why the different treatment As a democracy whose government must be held accountable by its votersIndia has greater legitimacy on the world stage in defending its policies On the other handChinas intransigence on similar issues is linked with the nature of its political system Since the government in Beijing is not electedits policies are seen as lacking popular backing and legitimacy abroad The penalties

allegedly tying a Kashmiri youth to an army jeep to deter stone-pelters Farooq Dar (the man who was tied) on Wednesday claimed that Gogoi had lied about him being a ringleader of a stone-pelting gang reported Hindustan Times “The army major is lying to save himself” Hindustan Times quoted Dar who also added that had he been the ringleader of stone-pelting mobs he would not have cast his vote The 27-year-old said that the army is there to save people and “not to use common people to shield themselves” Dar also reiterated his resolve to never vote again “I won’t vote again after what they did to me I will boycott voting” the report quoted Dar as saying Gogoi’s version of what happened on 9 April While interacting with the media on Tuesday Gogoi had defended his action on 9 April while adding that Dar was tied to the jeep as he could have been the ringleader of many stone-pelters The army officer finally broke his silence over the incident when fresh controversy erupted after Gogoi was honoured on Monday with the Army Chief’s commendation card for “his sustained efforts in counter-insurgency operations” Narrating the circumstances leading to the controversial decision Gogoi said that about 1200 stone-pelters had surrounded a small group of security personnel at a polling booth in Utligam village of Budgam district on 9 April and if he had ordered firing there could have been at-least 12 casualties The mob which included women and children was threatening to set ablaze the polling booth he had said Gogoi said that he (and five other army personnel) had gone to that polling booth after a "distress call" about a small group of ITBP personnel and few members of the polling staff being surrounded by a big crowd of about 1200 stone-pelters He said that when he reached Bandipora the crowd had started pelting stones He said that despite repeated requests on his megaphone the crowd comprising several women and children refused to budge As the stone-pelting increased Gogoi ordered his men to take hold of Dar the man who seemed to be instigating the attacks "This thing I have done only to save the local people (sic) Had I fired there would have been more than 12 casualties. With this idea I have saved many peoples’ lives" Gogoi told reporters at theBeerwah camp in Budgam district File image of Farooq Dar tied to a jeep Suhail Bhat/Firstpost Dar was a ring leader claims Gogoi Talking about Dar Gogoi had said "He tried to flee on a bike but somehow despite intense stone-pelting and getting hurt we caught hold of him" He said after catching Dar the army personnel moved towards the polling station with the help of mine-protected vehicle "Once we got inside I rescued four civil polling staff seven ITBP personnel and one Jammu and Kashmir Police constable" he had said Later as the army men started moving in their car they realised that there was heavy stone-pelting from all sides and that is when the army Major decided to use him as a human shield to protect the local people Gogoi had said as they got a "fraction of moment (sic) to get out" and that they used the opportunity to "save at least 12 lives" "The crowd threw one petrol bomb at us and we had to face many roadblocks" Gogoi said The officer said that while they were leaving the polling station their mine-protected vehicle got stuck in the mud "My team and I ensured smooth polls" Gogoi said Dar slams army officer Dar on the other hand dismissed the probe into the case as a farce Dar said he was yet to be called by the police or the army — which has instituted a court of inquiry into the incident of 9 April — for his side of the story "It is a complete eyewash" he said about the inquiry "They were never serious I am a small person and why should anyone care" Dar said "It has been over a month since then and I am yet to hear from the local police Even my statement has not been registered" Dar told PTI from his home at Chill in Budgam district The 27-year-old embroidary worker also reacted to the honour recieved by Gogoi "I wonder whether tying a person to a jeep are his efforts in counter-insurgency operations" Dar said regretting having stepped out of his home to vote "I was told that my statement had to be recorded but that has not happened so far Even if the army is conducting its own inquiry my statement is needed for I am the victim" he said Dar believes the state and central governments aretrying "bury the truth" in the files Kashmiri politicians and separatists outrage In Kashmir people across the ideological divide including the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were outraged after the Indian Army felicitated the major despite a court of inquiry report yet to be tabled PDP general secretary Nizamudin Bhat said honoring the major was "improper" and "not a right decision" and said the state government would investigate the incident properly "PDP’s stand is that such incidents are bad for public perception and should be probed If he (Gogoi) has been rewarded for this bravado I don’t feel this is proper" Bhat told reporters in Srinagar Hurriyat chairman Syed Ali Geelani also said the decision of honoring the major is extremely "distressing and shameful" "Honoring such an officer clearly vindicates our claim that this is a state-sponsored policy and if not stopped it will prove detrimental to human lives We are looking towards the International Court of Justice to intervene like it did in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case" Geelani said "It’s ridiculous to award the officer for the insensitive human shield incident The authorities’ version is not acceptable and it was actually a severe act against humanity His intentions were not sincere and he just tried to harass people in the area; it was a deliberate attempt to drag people to polling booths" Geelani added Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik termed the army officer’s commendation as an "act of naked fascism" but said he was not surprised "This is why we find the Indian Army security forces and the police are killing Kashmiris with impunity maiming and blinding people shamelessly and oppressing humans openly" Malik said He added "Much before this commemoration the politicians adhering to the mindset of fascism have termed this act as ‘self-defence’ and said that ‘everything is fair in love and war’ which speaks volumes about their fascist mindset" With inputs from agencies After some Marathi news channels aired PM Narendra Modi’s speech at the Madison Square Garden in New York during the 9 pm slot as an advertisement opposition parties lashed out at the party as well as the Marathi news channels PM Narendra Modi’s Madison Garden speech was aired on Marathi news channels PTI A report in The Economic Times said that NCP chief Sharad Pawar attacked PM Modi for misusing official machinery "You (Modi) didn’t go to the US as a BJP leader They should not have used the speech for the election campaign The PM’s office is an institution and he has the same responsibility as us in maintaining the dignity of the PM’s office He has reduced the prestige of the PM’s post" said Pawar in the report Strangely Shiv Sena was not affected by this incident as party MP Sanjay Raut said that Shiv Sena was not opposed to the speech aired on the Marathi news channels Pawar on Sunday had praised Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray for "working hard" to strengthen his party after the demise of his father and party founder Bal Thackeray in 2012 "After Balasaheb’s death you (media) wasted a lot of ink on contemplating the future of Shiv Sena But Uddhav has proved you wrong He is doing well to strengthen the party which is more than expected He is working hard" Pawar had said MNS chief Raj Thackeray and Congress also criticised the PM for the incident A Congress member even claimed that the party had written to the Election Commission demanding action against BJP as well as the PM according to the ET report Modi has campaigned personally in Maharashtra betting he can help his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) win big in a state with a population of 110 million spread across an area the size of Italy (With agency inputs) the NCP has the largest drop in the attendance figures — from 81 per cent in 2012 to 69 per cent last year.
