Somnath Bharti’s problems continued to multiply on Wednesday with Delhi Congress leaders saying they would meet Lt-Governor Najeeb Jung on Thursday and demand that the Delhi Police take action against Bharti With Bharti drawing flak from all quarters over his conduct the AAP which has publicly backed him so far has asked the law minister to refrain from using unparliamentary language sources said Last week Bharti had orchestrated a midnight raid on Ugandan nationals in Khirki Extension accusing them of being involved in a sex-and-drugs racket The Ugandan women later complained to police and the Delhi Commission for Women that they were assaulted and molested by the minister and his men during the raid An Ugandan woman also identified Bharti as the one leading the group that barged into her house and harassed her The Congress claimed that police was not taking any action against Bharti because he — being a minister — was no longer an aam aadmi “Had he been a common man he would have been arrested by now But police are refraining from arresting Delhi’s law minister even though he has been identified” Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Singh Lovely told Newsline He said the investigation into the midnight raid should not be influenced by Bharti’s position as a law minister “No one is above the law A delegation of the Congress leaders will meet Lt-Governor tomorrow (Thursday) to discuss the Bharti issue The allegations against him are serious and the investigation into the matter should be conducted fairly” he said The AAP leaders said while Bharti’s actions were acceptable the language he used was questionable “We have communicated to Bharti that he should not use unparliamentary language” a top party leader said The gag orders came after TV channels aired clips of Bharti having a verbal altercation with police during the raid in Khirki Extension The minister had also used colourful language while speaking about senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley who had criticised Bharti for the midnight raid and termed it racist For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Press Trust Of India | Published: July 18 2013

download Indian Express App More Related NewsEven amidst the various changes and surprises in India’s team selections for the limited-overs leg of the upcoming England series Amit Mishra’s case is a perplexing one It is a throwback to the 2000s and Mishra’s own stop-start international career over the years While he has been included in the 50-over squad his omission from the T20 series is in many ways inexplicable It is also not the case that there is a clear theme of preferring“youth over experience” – as Yuvraj Singh Ashish Nehra and Suresh Raina have all made it back into the squad – and goes on to highlight yet another case of stereotypes taking precedence over performance File photo of Amit Mishra AP At the international level Mishra has played just eight T20Is and just one after the 2014 World Cup in Bangladesh where he returned 10 wickets from 6 games at a measly147 Having toured the West Indies this year India chose to take him to the USA for the T20 series in Florida instead of flying down a separate squad all the way from India The result 4-0-24-3 in the second T20I which was rained off If these eight games are too small a sample size to measure his true worth in the 20 over game consider his IPL career usually cited by selectors as one of the primaryyardsticks for selection to the national squad He’s the second highest wicket-taker over the tournament’s eight season history with 122 wickets from 112 games at an average of 2353 These are facts the selectors should well be aware of and that makes his omission puzzling He has changed IPL sides twice now and auction paddles have always immediately gone up to avail his services At the international level and to his own national selectors there is a dissonance between what he has actually achieved against how he is perceived as a cricketer Is it his fitness Can’t be since he’s a permanent fixture in Test squads for a format that takes the most out of a cricketer Is it his batting Usually doesn’t matter since he has never been required to bat in the eight games he’s played at the international level In any case he strikes at over 90 and has a better track record in this format than all his bowling colleagues including leading spinner Ravichandran Ashwin His Haryana team-mate and another IPL success story Yuzvendra Chahal has been chosen ahead of him this time and his returns in the Ranji Trophy and India A tour have meant he has been thrown into the mix yet again For now Mishra will need to be content with the ODI berth and make the most of his limited opportunities once again as India prepare for a Champions Trophy title defence in England He will lookto push on perform in this three-match seriesand hope that for once he isnot overlooked for team selection when push comes to shove in June 2017 At 34 his days are limited and India need to utilize a top-class leg-spinner in the shortest format as the best sides around the world expertly use them as dual-purpose weapons capable of stemming the run-flow and picking up crucial wickets Mishra’s strength has never been the former but his recent performances across both ODIs and T20s have only reinforced his wicket-taking credentials After all this is the ‘horses for courses’ era we live in and Mishra’s legacy needs to go beyond just his IPL credentials Hundreds still missing in Sierra Leone mudslide as search
