In 2010, the main source of corruption and leakages,said Ravichandar Bangalore has 13000 km and TenderSure is barely scratching the surface But not everybody is happy with the way things are turning out Corporators accuse TenderSure of subverting processes and clandestinely privatising roads Some bureaucrats and the police accuse project leadersof not consulting all agencies and say that the specs will substantially reduce the carriageway for motorists and further clog the roads These could be the rumblings of discontent among those who see TenderSure as the death knell for massive corruption in road works The “system” couldbe waiting to kill TenderSure But if Bangalore’s residents enthusiastically use the 12 stretches of TenderSure roads to drive in uniform two-lane traffic and walk bike and window shop there isa good chance that the project will be a “test lab success” whose standards will set the paradigm for future road works If not it will be business as usual Roads will continue to be laid and relaid while money will leak out and line the pockets of corrupt politicians and officials saritharai@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express

faux pas by senior Aam Aadmi Party leader Ashish Khetan during the launch of the Youth Manifesto in Amritsar and by the party’s leadership in designing the manifesto cover are being read as the party’s lack of understanding Punjab where religious sentiment can be easily hurt While Khetan likened the Youth Manifesto to the Guru Granth Sahib the holy book of the Sikhs the cover of the copy had a broom – the party’s election symbol – superimposed on an image of the Golden Temple with party supremo Arvind Kejriwal’s picture on the side Sikh pressure groups have not just protested against the two issues but have also filed complaints with the Election Commission of India for hurting religious sentiments Party leaders though not seasoned politicians have learnt from their experiences in Delhi and pulled out an old trick from their hat – of apologising instead of counter-arguing Khetan and other senior party functionaries have apologised profusely on both counts insisting they ‘did not mean any harm’ and have been hoping that puts an end to the matter “If you admit your mistake and apologise it is the end of the matter There is nothing left for the opponent to pull you up on” a party worker remarked Share This Article Related Article The AAP’s core team that is replicating its Delhi model of Dialogue Commission organisation building and poll strategy are all outsiders and not Sikhs thus becoming easy game for the party’s political rivals The Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP and Congress have often alleged that the party does not understand the ‘culture’ and social fabric of the state and the two recent incidents and the subsequent apologies are being seen as embarrassing ‘own goals’ In its defence the AAP dismisses the ‘outsider’ allegations and insists that the Punjab Dialogue Commission chief and veteran journalist Kanwar Sandhu a Sikh and very much an ‘insider’ was the one to design the Youth Manifesto cover Insiders maintain that it was partly an oversight and partly unforeseen “If you look at the cover closely you will see there is the Golden Temple then the sarovar and then the party symbol It is quite a distance away Where else would we have put the symbol But these things are made an issue before the elections and we do not want to fan the fire so we have repeatedly apologised Though on the ground people know that this is the ruling party’s petty politics” said a member of the party’s core team in Punjab In Khetan’s case the party has little to defend and agrees that he made an impulsive and unsolicited statement though with ‘no intention to hurt any religious sentiments’ That it was avoidable is beyond doubt To add to the existing trouble there is AAP MLA Naresh Yadav’s alleged involvement in the desecration of the Quran in Malerkotla For a party that was leading hands down in the poll surveys so far such controversies do not bode well and it will now be for the party to get back to being on the offensive once again For

dual-rear cameras claim leaks New image renders also showcased (Representational image of Redmi Note 4) Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5 could feature dual rear cameras according to various leaks around the upcoming smartphone Image renders of the smartphone have also been put out by the website 91Mobiles though these are not official renders but recreated by a designer based on the surrounding rumours around this phone Now Redmi Note 4 has been one of the successful smartphones in India for Xiaomi and naturally there’s a lot of interest around the successor to this smartphone Here’s a look at some of the leaks expected specifications regarding the Redmi Note 5 Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 dual rear camera New leaks have claimed Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will come with a dual-rear camera So far the only Redmi series phone that came with a dual rear camera was the Redmi Pro which was never officially launched in India Redmi Pro didn’t have a budget pricing either unlike other phones According to the latest set of reports Redmi Note 5 will have a 16MP + 5MP rear on the back and both the camera sensors will be placed vertically The dual-rear camera leak is something new to the Redmi Note 5 list of expectations An earlier report on GSMArena had claimed the Redmi Note 5 will have a 16MP rear camera and 13MP front camera The report had included leaked slides for the Redmi Note 5 which had highlighted specifications for the entire phone In those slides there was no mention of the Redmi Note 5 getting a dual rear camera Now whether Xiaomi introduces this feature in the upcoming Note 5 is something we’ll have to wait and watch Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 could have reduced bezels on the side (Representational image of Redmi Note 4) Xiaomi Redmi Note 5: Reduced bezels The new leaked renders are also claiming reduced bezels on the Redmi Note 5 series which looks highly unlikely Redmi Note 5 has been the budget series and there’s very little chance Xiaomi will bring something like this to the phones Redmi Note 5 in India has remained under Rs 13000 pricing so far and it might prove impossible for Xiaomi to offer reduced bezels at such pricing Also ideally such a design and display will likely come to the flagship Mi series first rather than Redmi series Xiaomi Redmi Note 5: Other specifications Redmi Note 5 will likely stick with the 1080p 55-inch display and could sport either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor or the 660 series The GSMArena report had also indicated a smaller battery size at 3790 mAh down from the 4100 mAh battery which might not be the best news Battery
