Millionaires and billionaires in Haryana polls

Over 50 percent of the candidates in the fray for the Oct 13 assembly elections are millionaires and the ruling Congress is leading the pack with 80 percent of its 90 candidates being millionaires and billionaires. Even more startling are the figures of the 42 legislators in the previous assembly who are seeking re-election. Between the February 2005 and October 2009 elections, their assets have increased a whopping 388 percent at an average of Rs.4.8 crore. One legislator has recorded an increase of nearly 5,500 percent in assets in just over four years. The figures have been arrived at by a survey of the contestants done by the NGOs, Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) and National Election Watch (NEW). At least 50 crorepati candidates have admitted to having assets worth millions but have failed to provide any income-tax permanent account number (PAN) - a must for all major financial dealings. The ADR-NEW analysis, done from affidavits filed by the candidates, has found that the Congress has given the poll tickets to 72 millionaires and billionaires while the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) has a list of 56 crorepati candidates. Other parties are not far behind - Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) has 44 millionaires, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) 41 and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) 29. The average assets of all candidates of the Congress are pegged at over Rs.5 crore while for the INLD and HJC candidates the averages are above Rs.3 crore each.
Millionaire candidates in the February 2005 assembly election were only 19 percent of the 983 contestants compared to over 50 percent millionaires among the 1,222 contestants this time. HJC candidate Mohit for the Kosli assembly seat has assets of over Rs.93 crore while the richest Congress candidate is industrialist-businessman and former union minister Venod Kumar Sharma for the Ambala city seat with assets of Rs.87 crore. One of the richest women in India, Savitri Jindal, who belongs to the Jindal Steel group family and is a Congress candidate for the Hisar seat, has assets of over Rs.43 crore. Ajay Singh Chautala, son of former chief minister Om Prakash Chautala, has declared assets of over Rs.28 crore. He is contesting the Dabwali assembly seat. BJP candidate Abhimanyu (Narnaul seat) also has assets of over Rs.27 crore. District-wise, the highest number of millionaires are from Faridabad (45), Gurgaon (37) and Hisar (37). At the other end of the assets spectrum, Ram Niwas, Samast Bharatiya Party candidate for the Israna seat, has declared no assets at all. Kailash Bhagat, INLD candidate for Kaithal, has declared assets of over Rs.63 crore but has liabilities of Rs.55 crore. Former MP and HJC president Kuldeep Bishnoi has declared assets of Rs.17 crore but has liabilities of Rs.12 crore.

Haryana CM Hooda and Jat in General Election

Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda tagged his election catchline "Number one". He has emerged `number one' by a distance in Haryana affairs, with the first list of nominations of 68 candidates showing that 64 are his pick. The Congress leadership's overwhelming bet on Hooda comes even as, post-YSR, it is grappling with the question if CMs should be allowed to emerge as satraps. The trouble over succession issue in Andhra Pradesh has jolted the party to the flip side of a strong regional leader without a second rung. Hooda, however, retains the confidence of the high command as has emerged from the nominations for assembly polls. The other local leaders contending for a toehold in state affairs, be it Birendra Singh or suave dalit leader Selja Kumari or Kiran Chaudhary, seem to have come a cropper in their bid to stay afloat in assembly sweepstakes. While 13 sitting MLAs have been dropped, a senior leader revealed that the list has 64 candidates of Hooda's choice. Held out as the clearest example of CM's dominance in candidate selection is Somvir Singh who was opposed by his relative Kiran Chaudhary for having acted against her interests. He has been renominated from Loharu. Also, CM's OSD K V Singh has got the ticket from Dabwali despite opposition from anti-Hooda faction as has Kailasho Saini, a defector from INLD.
While the 22 seats held back for decision comprise mostly those where Hooda's nominees are facing opposition from rivals, it is likely that he would again get the lion's share. For Hooda to stamp his authority in such a one-sided way in nomination process demonstrates his continuing honeymoon with the leadership, an impressive feat given that five years ago he was installed by sidelining Bhajan Lal. Importantly, putting all its eggs in the Hooda basket shows that Congress does not mind deepening the social shift it announced in its strategy by giving its leadership to a Jat leader. It marks a big change from traditional party line when non-Jats formed the Congress base, in opposition to the INLD which represented the strong agrarian community. Congress feels its Jat experiment is a runaway success as it has triggered an exodus from the original Jat tent of INLD, a headstart in elections. Besides, a failure of non-Jat outfits like BSP, Haryana Janhit Congress and BJP to forge an alliance is a boon for the Congress.

Jat Community will decide Fate of Congress in Haryana

Haryana is state where maximum people belongs to Jat Community and Congress is looking to build himself as a Jat party in Haryana. If the party wins the upcoming Haryana elections with its Jat chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda as the poll mascot, then the party’s gambit to give up its non-Jat identity in the face of a severely divided Opposition and a damaged Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) would have paid off, as it promises to do. In keeping with this plan, the party has nominated a sizeable number of Jats to contest the October 13 assembly polls.
Under Mr Hooda too the party is attempting to prevent an erosion of its non-Jat vote base. It has given 10 tickets each to Punjabis and Dalits, five to Yadvas, four each to Banias and Gurjars and nominal representation to other small groups. But, whether this strategy will be successful is difficult to say. The breakdown of vote share from the Lok Sabha results reveals that Congress’ show of strength was powered by the fragmentation of the opposition vote. Congress got just 41.77% of the votes. INLD and BJP bagged 12.09% of the votes each, BSP, which had only 4.98% of the votes in the 2004 Lok Sabha polls, managed to secure over 15% and the new-formed HJC cornered 10%. Such a fragmentation is on the cards again with no alliance between INLD and BJP and even the BSP-HJC tie-up coming undone. However, a section of Congress is not willing to write off INLD, which is strong in the Hissar, Sirsa and Rohtak regions. Also, Hooda-baiters such as Union minister Kumari Shelja, state minister Kiran Choudhary and MP Rao Inderjit Singh could queer the pitch if not reigned in by the high command. However, if the Jats rally behind Congress in a block as they are expected to do, Mr Hooda’s poll claim of being “number one” might be heard for much longer than the duration of the election campaign.

Ashish Nehra a Jat Cricketer from Delhi

Ashish Nehra a Jat Cricketer of Nehra Gotra, born on April 29, 1979 in Delhi is an Indian cricketer (left-arm fast bowler) who has represented India at the international level since 1999. His father Diwan Singh, is a manager in a Delhi government corporation.His mother's name is Sumitra Nehra.He Joined a sports-conscious local school, Salvan Public school after his matriculation.During his graduation from Rajdhani college,he joined a reputed Delhi cricket club named Sonnet Club, which brought the best out of him. Nehra started playing first-class cricket for his hometown, Delhi, in the 1997/1998 season and made his Test debut against Sri Lanka at Colombo in 1999 and his ODI debut against Zimbabwe at Harare in 2001. On his Test debut, Nehra started out well, dismissing Marvan Atapattu early but then failed to pick up any more wickets. Similarly, he dismissed Alistair Campbell with only his 2nd ball in ODIs. He was also part of the Indian team's run at the 2003 World Cup in South Africa. It was there against England, that he got his career-best ODI figures of six for 23. His performance in the other matches in the World Cup were also noteworthy. He was also the only Indian bowler who had an economy rate of less than 6 runs an over during the finals of the World Cup when Australia racked up 359.
However inconsistency and successive back and ankle injuries have prevented him from cementing his place in the Indian team. His career statistics are better in ODI cricket than in Test cricket, but with 92 ODI wickets at an average of 31.07 his average is higher than all three of his main competitors for fast bowling places in the Indian team - Irfan Pathan, Zaheer Khan and Ajit Agarkar, who all have bowling averages below 30. The new crop of fast bowlers like Sreesanth, Munaf Patel and Ishant Sharma also add to the competition. Nevertheless, Nehra completed recovery from a back injury in March 2006 and is trying to make a comeback into the Indian team.
Nehra has often been criticised for his poor fielding, and is regarded as one of the worst in international cricket, particularly his apparent disinterest and casual attitude towards fielding. He hit the headlines with creditable showings in the second season of the IPL, and was recalled to the ODI squad for the tour of West Indies in June 2009 after 4 years due to an injury to Zaheer Khan. After than he never look back and perform outstanding in India-SL tour and now days at Champions trophy, he becomes the best bowler in current Indian team.

Navdeep Poonia, a Jat cricketer in Scotland Team

Navdeep Singh Poonia (born 11 May 1986) is a Scottish cricket player. He is a right-handed batsman and right-arm medium fast bowler. He has played his first one one-day international for Scotland against Ireland on 5 August 2006.He also made three Twenty20 appearances for Warwickshire in 2006 season.He plays for Warwickshire in English county cricket.Poonia scored a half-century on his C&G Trophy debut in June,2006.He was named in a 14-man squad for the visit of Inzamam-ul-Haq's star-studded outfit for the historic one day match against Pakistan but at the last moment,Warwickshire refused to release him.Because,Mark Greatbatch,the coach of Warwickshire required Poonia for Warwickshire's Twenty/20 Cup clash at Northants. In this way,he is the victim of his own success.
His path to pulling on a Scotland jersey has been littered with many an obstacle. It was Warwickshire's tartan export Dougie Brown who first brought notice of Poonia's origins to then Under-19 national coach Peter Drinnen. A spot in the under-age World Cup was offered but then withdrawn because of the rules which put residency and education over birth place. Having withdrawn those parameters, the route was clear for him to become a fully-fledged Saltire and with a top order place firmly up for grabs, he could easily find his way in the party which will head for the Caribbean next spring. Observers of Poonia's game consider him a highly capable shot maker, inventive but not reckless. He concedes that at one day level he has much still to learn. "I think playing for Scotland will help me mentally most of all.

Jhunjhunu adhiveshan by Jat Mahasabha in 1932

There was a grand gathering of farmers under the banner of Jat Mahasabha in Jhunjhunu on 11-13 February 1932. 60000 Jat farmers attended it. Thakur Deshraj camped at Jhunjhunu for 15 days to make it a success. The farmers from all parts of India attended it. It was presided by Rao Sahib Chaudhary Rishal Singh Rayees, who was escorted from station to the place of meeting on elephant accompanied by a caravan of camels. This program was of Jats but all the communities cooperated and welcomed. Kunwar Panne Singh Deorod welcomed this rally where as Vidyadhar Singh Sangasi did the welcome of ‘Jaipur Prantiya Jat Kshatriya Sabha’ rallies. Though the Jagirdars did all attempts to make it a failure, but it proved a success. On the appeal of fund collection the participant farmers donated their gold ornaments, which they were wearing. This was the first opportunity of awakening the Shekhawati farmers and proved a grand success. Sardar Harlal Singh and Chaudhary Ghasi Ram had traveled a lot for its publicity and spread its message. Some of the competent people were awarded Kshatriya titles. For example Chaudhary Har Lal Singh was awarded as ‘Sardar’, Ratan Singh of Bharatpur as ‘Kunwar’ and Chaudhary Ram Singh as ‘Thakur’. Thus the Rajput monopoly over these titles vanished.

Jat Community in Rajasthan Election 2009

Congress get more than expected win in Lok Sabha election, but there is no magic funda in rajasthan election. It is straight politics that if you get support from Major Castes in Rajasthan you win, else your condition will be like BJP in this election. This win divert more caste based politics in rajasthan and political weight will shift towards caste group Jat, Rajput and Brahmins.
In Assembly election 1999 Jat Mahasabha supported Congress, they win by heavy margin, Jat and brahmins are backbone of BJP but OBC Reservation divert jat community to Congress as Ashok gehlot promise to provide reservation after win and he did. In 2004 election BJP contested Jat candidates on 30% seats and formula work, BJP wins with heavy votes. This time BJP leave some jat leaders behind in lok sabha election, some examples are Barmer, Jaipur(Gramin) and Ajmer seat where maximum vote bank are jat community but BJP Contested Rajput and Jain candidate instead of jat from all three seat and BJP loose all three seats which was expected. Congress normally didn't provide ticket to upper caste they play with Traditional vote bank and Jat community but In Lok Sabha Election 2009 Congress gave four tickets to Rajputs, three to Brahmins and seven to Jats. These caste groups, along with the traditional vote bank of Congress, make a safe win on all 14 seats.
