Choudhurys sister Rubi Noorhas bagged the prized Congress ticket from Malda-North constituency The man she beat to the ticket is her own uncle Abu Naser Khan Choudhury The disgruntled uncle quietly returned to Malda on Friday night from Delhiafter meeting Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee In an exclusive interview to Mouparna Bandhopadhyay at his Malda residencehe gave vent to his anger A few days agothere were reports of a feud in the Ghani Khan family after Mausum Noor was given the Lok Sabha ticket for Malda-North seatI wont call it a family feud Sometimes children get carried away A feud starts when a child is deprived of something he or she wants How can there be a feud as we were not consulted None of us kneweven Dalu (Abu Hasem Khan Choudhury Nasers brother) had no clue that Mausum was going to Delhi and would be given a Lok Sabha ticket She was elected as MLA from Sujapur three months ago and it was all because of Dalus contribution as Malda Congress president and her uncle She won by 22000 votes It was not an easy task because a few months before the by-electionCongress had done very poorly in the Zilla Parishad elections She won because of the hard work Dalu and his people had put in Approaching Delhi for an election ticket was her individual decision Its a case of a young lady trying to reach for the moon before the time has arrived She did not consult anybody I have returned from Delhi two days ago and she is yet to get in touch with me There is a perception that you were denied the ticket because of issues pertaining to your citizenshipIf you say that necessary papers were submitted on timeits wrong The only document pending was the certificate of renunciation of my Swiss citizenship It arrived on March 26 from the Swiss authorities Previouslythe Home department had written to me that other documents were in place When I submitted the certificatethey gave another letter confirming that all documents have been submitted How can a country issue a renunciation certificate unless there is an alternative offer of citizenship Without a clear offer of citizenship from a countryyou become stateless As you statedMausum Noor went to Delhi of her own accord But we saw today that she has been using your and Abu Hasem Khan Choudhurys name during her campaigns Using the Ghani factor is a political reality Using the Khan Choudhury name is a bonus Sohow can she say she is a rebel Will you campaign with your niece or your brother LatelyI have not been keeping well I suffered from hypertension when I was in Delhiso my health wont permit me to go on long campaigns I will go with Dalu to attend small meetings and tell the people why it is important for them to vote for the Congress I will not campaign with Mausum Will you contest for Sujapur by-electionwhich will be held if Mausum wins No No more elections for me now Not even Sujapur Why did you want to contest the Lok Sabha electionsI wanted to primarily focus on the well-being of Malda I wanted to bring out the hardships the locals face in this district In a democratic setupParliament is the place for that I had half-a-dozen issues in my mindnot all of them Malda-specific – several were national issues I was very hopeful of meeting like-minded MPs and deliberate pertinent issues What are your future plansI will enjoy my forced vacation at my Kotwali residence (laughs) I also plan to visit a few places Of coursemy biggest engagement will be to try and start the Ghani Khan Institute of Technology by July

NewsWritten by Pratap Bhanu Mehta | Published: June 27 2015 12:00 am Prime Minister Indira Gandhi at Parliament in October 1976 The Emergency was lifted a few months later in March 1977 (Photos: Express Archive) Related News Book- The Emergency: A Personal History Author: Coomi Kapoor Publisher: Penguin Pages: 368 Price: Rs 599 Emergency: A Personal History is a riveting and necessary account of the elite politics of the Emergency and the way it impinged upon one family Coomi Kapoor was a young journalist with The Indian Express Her husband Virendra Kapoor was arrested during the Emergency Her brother-in-law Subramanian Swamy was a cloak-and-dagger hero during the Emergency who made a dramatic escape from India and an equally dramatic return to shake up the establishment Kapoor is herself a first-rate political reporter and uses that to great advantage to tell the inside story of the Emergency She catalogues the mechanisms through which this attack on Indian democracy was orchestrated Although it focuses on the role of personalities its cumulative effect is to leave a chilling effect on the reader There were important social forces at work in the Emergency But the casual ease with which nearly the whole elite establishment drifted into Emergency as if it were some kind of parlour game is astonishing And Kapoor tells that story with good effect Not the least of the book’s virtues is the naming and shaming of so many protagonists who transformed the rule of law into oppression by law The strength of a personal history lies in human detail The effortless if understated descriptions of an elite in a mode of complicity will leave you reeling: judicial mendaciousness where eminences like Justices Bhagwati and Chandrachud caved in atrociously the pathetic enfeeblement of almost all Congress politicians the zeal of civil servants like Navin Chawla who while being personally gracious fed Sanjay Gandhi’s most destructive institutional tendencies LK Advani recently said that there had been no apology for the Emergency He was stating a deep truth Not only have very few of the participants admitted their mistake but for a large number of them there was also no mistake They effortlessly slipped into whatever role the state assigned them and slipped out when circumstances changed This is in part because social networks transcended all differences of principle Kapoor provides mordant detail: the nature of prison conditions the mechanism of censorship the rounding up of opposition leaders the forced sterilisations and the sheer terror of Sanjay Gandhi’s five-point programme The legendary inefficiencies of the Indian state are exposed which even an iron hand could not entirely remedy: “in a totalitarian state the left hand does not know what the right hand was doing” Kapoor provides evidence based on a note by Siddharth Shankar Ray the political henchman in the story that the Emergency was being contemplated even before the Allahabad High Court judgment The charges on which the Allahabad High Court had found Indira guilty now seem small and almost routine infractions The political crackdown on the right and the RSS was perhaps more severe than on the Left Even though Balasaheb Deoras supported Indira Gandhi the crackdown on and the resistance of the RSS rehabilitated it in Indian politics It gave the student leaders of that era a long career in politics Kapoor argues that the claim of impending anarchy which was the justification for the crackdown was hugely exaggerated; in fact the intelligence agencies’ report on this was after the fact as it were It is the hallmark of impending totalitarianism to create a truth to serve the purpose of power There were a few heroes: the legendary Justice Khanna Fali Nariman resigning his position and the now underrated Swaran Singh the only senior member of the Indira Gandhi cabinet to have demurred The Emergency enshrined the idea that the Indian state’s basic character could be defined by a combination of sheer thuggishness and absurdity It was not just the enshrining of a personality cult; it was the institutionalisation of sheer caprice under the guise of law: anyone could be picked up the state could round up children with long hair and forcibly cut it it could decide that Kishore Kumar songs were not to be broadcast (a delightful story in the book) It was the institutionalisation of the first mass evictions from Indian cities Free rein was given to personal vendettas Kapoor’s book is less sure-footed on the social economic and international background to the Emergency perhaps deliberately so But the book’s focus on personal history gives it unusual power You are left with a sobering question: If Indira Gandhi had not decided to call elections in 1977 would we have had the resistance to throw off this yoke The sense of liberation and idealism when Emergency was lifted was genuine But it vanished so fast A hero like George Fernandes could handle prison; he could not handle power In the Seventies Jayaprakash Narayan was reciting Dinkar: Singhaasan khali karo/ Ki janata ati hai; we heard the same refrain during recent elections Alas the
