cent pre-poll alliance in all ten municipal corporations and 26 zilla parishads where elections are scheduled in February was not practical politics However the BJP said it was not averse to alliance with the Sena based on the positive reports from its district and local units Watch What Else is Making News The BJP emphasised on the mutual consent from the local units and conducive grounds to make the pre-poll alliance workable BJP leader and Finance Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar told The Indian Express “Frankly 100 per cent pre-poll alliance cannot be a reality It was never in the past and will not be practical in future Both the parties will have to take ground reality into consideration and go-ahead” The process of pre-poll talks between the Sena and the BJP are likely to commence from Thursday Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray have indicated to their respective parties to keep all options ready including going alone in the forthcoming elections The elections in ten municipal corporations will be held at Mumbai Thane Nagpur Nashik Pune Pimpri-Chinchwad Amravati Akola Ulhasnagar and Solapur Apart from these there are 26 zilla parishad elections across the state Mungantiwar said “Both the chief minister and the BJP are wholeheartedly in favour of pre-poll alliance with the Shiv Sena But we believe the alliance negotiations will have to be evaluated based on the reports from the local units of our respective parties” Commenting on the Sena’s demand for uniform pre-poll alliance policy and not selective approach he said “Even when negotiations would be between late Bal Thackeray and late Pramod Mahajan there was never 100 per cent alliance ever in any election” Referring to the past he said “In 1995 Shiv Sena and BJP were voted to power in Maharashtra But if we take a look at the nature of pre-poll alliance in assembly or local bodies 100 per cent was never a reality” The Shiv Sena is not in favour of selective approach to alliance in select municipal corporations and believes it will not be acceptable to the party The top BJP leadership too is under pressure from its units that have asked the party not to give blindly to Sena’s high-handedness in seat-sharing talks for Mumbai Thane and other eight corporations Mungantiwar said “I am sure even Sena leaders too understand the practical difficulties and would take right approach when stitching alliance with BJP” He added that any alliance at the centre without the consent of local units will not work for either side The minister said that state leaders alone could not decide 1800 candidates for 26 zilla parishads and they will have to rely on local units to complete the process to shortlist candidates He added that the Shiv Sena would also have similar issues Unlike in the recently concluded local body elections the BJP has decided not to take decisions at the last minute For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy:

individual and national objectives and positions on an acceptable format for governing the internet. First is the belief that somehow the internet is the means to “universalism” that because we are all digitally connected nations communities and societies will agree on freedom of expression intellectual property privacy and security among other such issues The internet is perhaps a form of hyper-globalisation It is able to reach spaces and people at a rate and in a manner that was impossible in the real world Yet globalisation does not imply universalisation Every time human rights intellectual property or cultural agendas are sought to be superimposed on what should be a realistic conversation on the efficient management of a useful medium there will be discord Real-world issues need to be addressed at the appropriate forums that are meant to deal with them Therefore the treatment of issues such as freedom of expression privacy surveillance and intellectual property and innovation in the NETmundial outcome document is what it would always be; an accommodation of multiple positions and a play of words that neither pleases nor hurts anyone The second set of arguments seems to build around the mistaken notion that a different governance structure (not dominated by the US) would somehow prevent spying intrusion and surveillance Governance and surveillance and criminality tend to get conflated For the current discussion let us assume that the critical resources that allow the internet to operate are not managed by the US Will it prevent state and non-state actors say in our neighbourhood from spying acquiring data or illegally intruding and harming devices and networks Illegal activities are exactly that illegal and cannot be legislated Sovereign states will have to agree to certain conventions and thereafter regulate behaviour within their respective territories It would be more productive to create legal frameworks that would define jurisdiction and quasi-sovereignty for data flows digital transactions and data storage The discussion on these issues has been deferred to “beyond NETmundial” as per the outcome statement and must be pursued The third notion that seems to permeate some policy circles in various national capitals is that the internet is a “global common” and therefore nations can collectively legislate its equitable use or “fair use” Net neutrality advocates within civil society also seem to align themselves to this notion Both will be disappointed The internet as we know it is a collection of private enterprises small and large organised and random The individual user is an entrepreneur too a consumer and producer And the weight that any entity or geography enjoys in the digital marketplace defines the power relationship vis-à-vis others in the digital domain as it does in energy markets or any other marketplace If the US India China or Brazil enjoy a certain weight and can influence the operations of Facebook Google or Microsoft it is due to size and market potential To assume that commercial considerations can be ignored and inter-governmental panels or civil society advocates can alter the commercial basis is to mistake the trees for the woods What governments can do is create policy environments that allow proliferation of digital infrastructure and access to the net What they can encourage is an environment where entrepreneurs thrive and innovators excel and what they cannot and must not do is create a form of digital socialism that skews the marketplace Even as the debate on net neutrality was unfolding at the NETmundial the US Federal Communications Commission was changing rules that allowed providers differential tariffs for higher speed digital connections It is time for some digital realism For a country like India there are lessons and takeaways from this meet India must bolster its weight in the digital marketplace commensurate with the number of current and potential netizens This would be possible only by creating capabilities and an environment where private businesses SMEs and individuals can access and exploit this medium gainfully India has the responsibility to enter into serious conversations on jurisdiction issues pertaining to its digital businesses data flow and storage and this may happen far more efficiently bilaterally than at such large gatherings Since India has proposed the examination of the idea of multistakeholderism it must come up with an alternative proposition for the others to consider soon and the first step must be a comprehensive domestic debate The writer is vice president and senior research fellow at the

are concerned whether the Surrogacy Regulation Bill 2016 will be applicable to the pregnant surrogate mothers or children existing before the Act is enforced” Dr Machave national coordinator of the Ethics and Medico legal committee of the Federation of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Society of India said “The Surrogacy (Regulation) Bill 2016 has to be introduced in the Lok Sabha However we are unable to ascertain the exact intent and position of the legislature along with the effect of Clause 50 It is important to clarify specially as it involves the rights and liabilities of surrogate mothers and other parties involved in commercial surrogacies prior to the Act being enforced” Dr Machave said The Surrogacy (Regulation) Bill 2016 bans commercial surrogacy in India It also bars foreigners homosexual couples people in live-in relationships and single individuals making only childless straight Indian couple married for a minimum of five years eligible for surrogacy Eligible couples will have to turn to close relatives not necessarily related by blood for altruistic surrogacy where no money exchanges hands between the commissioning couple and the surrogate mother Clause 50 of the said Bill states: “Subject to the provisions of this Act there shall be provided a gestation period of ten months from the date of coming into force of this Act to existing surrogate mothers to protect their well being” According to Machave the interpretation of Clause 50 of the Bill is that the provisions of this Act will apply to the existing surrogate mothers to the extent that is possible Also then what would be the exact meaning of the gestation period and intent of providing the gestation period of 10 months Machave said and has written to Dinesh Singh Joint Director Rajya
