PM Modi celebrates Diwali with jawans at Siachen, gives J&K Rs 745 cr from his relief fund

Politics over PM Modi's visit to J&K on Diwali, Congress calls it a stunt
A political fight has broken out over Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Jammu and Kashmir on Diwali. The Opposition has rejected the Rs 745 crore announced by the PM as not being enough.
Modi announces relief package for flood-hit Kashmir
Prime minister Narendra Modi on Thursday announced a Rs 7.5 billion ($120 million) relief package for flood-hit Kashmir as his Bharatiya Janata Party seeks to expand support beyond the mainly Hindu lowlands of Jammu. Modi's visit to the flood affected state on Diwali - the Indian festival of lights - comes in the build up to elections in the affected state of Jammu and Kashmir by the end of the year. Hundreds of people were killed and thousands of villages were devastated by the worst flooding in decades in the Kashmir valley, a mainly Muslim region with a history of separatist violence. Modi announced 5.7 billion rupees in assistance for housing and 1.8 billion rupees to fix six major hospitals in the state that are in poor condition and need immediate federal support, a government statement said. "India shares the grief of Jammu and Kashmir. The government stands with the people in rehabilitation efforts," Modi said. Modi last month announced a first round of central assistance of 10 billion rupees for the state. Thursday's relief package is a fraction of the state's demand for a package of around 150 billion rupees for 350,000 structures including more than 250,000 houses damaged in the floods. "We were expecting more from Prime Minister Narendra Modi. What is it? Just, peanuts. The loss due to floods is huge. It is a cruel joke for us people," Mushtaq Ahmad, whose house collapsed in the floods, told Reuters. In the next state elections, the BJP wants to oust regional leader Omar Abdullah, who was allied to the Congress-led government that was defeated in the national election in May.

Shiv Sena ready to back BJP-led coalition in Maharashtra
The Shiv Sena may support a Bharatiya Janata Party-led government in Maharashtra, a top Sena leader said here Thursday. "The election results indicate that no single party can form the government. However, both (Shiv Sena, BJP) can come together for the purpose. This is the peoples mandate," Shiv Sena parliamentarian and emissary Anil Desai told a private television channel. The two parties are expected to start discussions on forming the government Monday, he said. On the issue of the chief minister, Anil Desai said since the Bharatiya Janata Party has secured more seats, it would be their decision. But other things would be discussed by the two parties, he added. In the 288-member assembly, the BJP and allies secured 123 seats, the Shiv Sena got 63, Congress managed 42, the NCP won 41 and the remaining seats were bagged by either Independents or smaller and regional parties. A party needs 145 seats for simple majority in the state assembly. The change of heart in the Shiv Sena follows a quick trip by Anil Desai, a Rajya Sabha member and his colleague Subhash Desai to New Delhi two days ago. "We had detailed and fruitful discussions with the BJP leaders authorised by the party... After a couple of days, formal discussions will start and all final decisions in the matter will be taken by Sena President Uddhav Thackeray," Anil Desai said. Though both the Shiv Sena leaders have not revealed whom they met among the BJP top brass, it is apparent they cleared the ground for entering into an alliance again, which was broken by the BJP Sep 25, just three weeks before the assembly polls Oct 15. Meanwhile, sources in both the BJP and the Shiv Sena claimed that no fresh proposals have been sent to each other, while the BJP went a step further, saying there could not be "preconditions" by the Shiv Sena for extending support. Though both sides said it was too early to outline the contours of the proposed government, based on the number of seats secured, it could be based on a formula of the BJP 28 and the Shiv Sena 14 ministers each. The Shiv Senas decision to initiate talks with the BJP was prompted by various factors, among them, the BJPs tough stance before and after elections, and the general anathema to the unconditional external support extended by the Nationalist Congress Party. Besides, the Shiv Sena had to grapple with a section of hawks within the Shiv Sena who were against supporting the BJP while another group advocated alliance amid possibility of large-scale defections from the Sena. This will be second time since 1995 when the two parties will unite to give Maharashtra its second non-Congress government till date in the states history.
