from Pyeongchang (Source: File representational) Top News Investigators at the International Olympic Committee expect to have “a number” of doping cases involving Russians at the Sochi Olympics resolved by the end of November but they have no plans to dictate the eligibility of these athletes for next year’s Winter Games in Pyeongchang The leader of an IOC delegation in charge of reviewing 28 cases involving athletes at Sochi wrote to the head of the IOC Athletes Commission this week to update the timeline of cases stemming from a report detailing a Russian doping scheme at the 2014 Olympics and beforehand Denis Oswald said that of the cases his committee is reviewing priority has been given to those involving athletes looking to compete in Pyeongchang Top priority goes to six cross-country skiers whose provisional suspensions expire Oct 31 Oswald also said his committee would rule on these athletes’ results for Sochi but will not determine their eligibility for Pyeongchang instead handing over evidence to their respective sports federations to decide The IOC also appointed a task force to look at the Russian doping scandal as a whole the results of which could have wider repercussions on the country’s eligibility at next year’s Olympics In a separate letter sent to worldwide sports leaders IOC President Thomas Bach said only that the Schmid Commission is continuing its evaluation and that “I hope that the IOC Executive Board will still be able to take a decision this year because none of us want this serious issue to overshadow” the upcoming Olympics The updates come amid a growing chorus of calls for a timely decision and for Russia’s ouster from Pyeongchang The IOC commissions are operating off information from the McLaren Report the first part of which was released in July 2016 In explaining the timeline Oswald wrote that because the Russian scheme involved exchanging dirty urine samples with clean ones it took time to adopt methods to verify that samples had been tampered with _ in part by finding evidence of scratch marks on collection bottles that had been opened and re-sealed “The task has not been easy in both establishing a methodology in an area in which there are no established protocols” he wrote “and then moving through the necessary scientific analysis of each individual sample in a way which would withstand legal

not even the BJP/NDA government of 1998-2004 Related News There was recently much fuss about an advertisement in which the Preamble of the Constitution was reproduced without the words “secular” and “socialist” There is a febrile atmosphere in the country about secularism with some members of the Sangh Parivar misbehaving Prime Minister Narendra Modi did well therefore while celebrating the elevation to sainthood by the Pope of two Catholics to reaffirm his and his government’s commitment to secularism His eloquence was heartfelt as one could see Of course eternal vigilance will have to be exercised by all to guard that basic value The Constitution affirms secularism regardless of the inclusion of that word in the Preamble After all Jawaharlal Nehru never found it necessary to include it in the Preamble nor did the Constituent Assembly insist It was during the particularly sordid episode of fascist dictatorship under Emergency that the words secular and socialist were added Secularism is clearly surplus to requirement but harmless whether in or out of the Preamble But when did India officially become a socialist country One presumes it was during those months when the nation was not a democracy The 42nd Amendment still remains on the books No subsequent government has bothered to remove it; not even the BJP/NDA government of 1998-2004 The Constituent Assembly discussed the issue of declaring India as a socialist country and rejected it At the Awadi session of the Congress the resolution adopted only spoke of a socialist pattern of society Nehru powerful as he was knew that he did not have the support of his party to declare socialism as a goal It was only after the Congress party was converted into a family firm that Indira Gandhi could impose her diktat without fear of a revolt How many of us are aware that the Election Commission requires every political party to affirm that it is socialist Every political party This is a totalitarian diktat Why can a party not be non-socialist Does it not violate the fundamental right of free speech Can one believe that there is no politically-minded group anywhere in India that has heard of the collapse of the Leninist socialist paradigm or of the horrible gulags in the USSR labour camps in China and the genocidal policies of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia all in the name of socialism How well has India done by socialism Look at Malaysia or South Korea both poorer than India in1950 and even in 1960 They are much richer than India because they avoided socialism Pakistan had as good a growth rate as India till 1997 India’s GDP growth rate picked up only when the Congress under temporary non-dynastic leadership launched market-friendly reforms Even so many PSUs continue to make losses Given a monopoly status some do make profit and are taken to be ratnas But no one asks whether the country could have done better by encouraging business from the very beginning rather than building up monopolies It costs the Indian exchequer one-third of its total tax revenue to pay interest on the debt which was incurred in financing these white elephants This means India spends 10 times as much on servicing debt as on health There is socialism for public sector employees civil servants and MPs Their health and housing and children’s education often their travel and food are all paid for by the taxpayer They are the gilded 5 per cent No wonder they love socialism It is the rest of India which pays for this culture This Lutyens socialism is too deeply embedded for any government to challenge It would require moving the national capital from Delhi and building a new capital where MPs can live in more affordable housing That is a distant dream The issue of the totalitarian requirement of declaring every party to be socialist is more urgent Even if there ever was a groundswell for socialism there is no doubt that it has ebbed The Congress has declined till it faces “ an existential crisis” as one of its senior members said The Left parties are about to lose their national status Stop the charade Remove the socialism amendment For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | Published: November 24 2014 12:04 am Related News Thewinter session of Parliament that begins today could see the tabling of significant legislation that paves the way for a nationwide goods and services tax (GST) The Centre appears to have got the states on board for the Constitution amendment bill that would enable the GST to come into force True key differences remain: states want the GST to be levied on all traders whose annual turnover exceeds Rs 10 lakh while the Centre favours a higher Rs 25 lakh threshold States also don’t want the GST to cover petroleum alcohol or tobacco Further they have demanded that the bill incorporate provisions to compensate them for revenue losses arising from GST implementation whereas the Centre is unwilling to give any such explicit guarantee The above differences are however not irresolvable The right forum to discuss them is the GST Council comprising the Union finance minister and his state-level counterparts which the bill proposes to create The priority today should be to get the bill — which empowers the Centre to tax sales of goods (that only the states can now do) and the states to tax services (currently the Centre’s preserve) — passed in the coming session itself so that the GST can be rolled out from April 1 2016 All contentious details including deciding the so-called GST revenue-neutral rate can be sorted out during the interim period And that is eminently possible with some large-heartedness on the Centre’s part The least it can do is establish a compensation fund to be administered by the GST Council This fund could cover any revenue losses of the states in the short run based on clearly defined parameters for projecting tax collections under alternative GST/ no-GST scenarios It also helps that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been a chief minister An assurance from him on compensating them for genuine revenue losses would certainly carry credibility But any federal compensation has to be made conditional upon the states agreeing to subsume all local levies including octroi/ entry tax under the GST Moreover no product should be exempted from the GST which aims at taxing every good and service on the value-added principle In a regime where producers at each stage of the value chain can claim a refund for taxes paid on their inputs exemption of any product or levy will only lead to the cascading of taxes Taxing every commodity on value addition including services would ultimately be conducive to economic activity The resultant revenue buoyancy in turn would also not necessitate pegging the combined GST rate as high as 27 per cent which is what the states are now pushing for For all the latest Opinion News download
