charged adding that it was done to politically finish Modi the then Gujarat Chief Minister and Amit Shah then a minister in the state government "The national would not have seen something as

Kejriwal on Monday dared the BJP to use VVPAT a paper trail audit which lets voters check if the vote has gone to the candidate they chose in every election Addressing AAP workers at his residence Kejriwal raked up the issue of alleged manipulation of electronic voting machines to needle the BJP saying that "EVM mischief" was behind the saffron party’s recent upsurge Kejriwal said by reposing faith on the AAP voters of Bawana have sent out the message that BJP’s politics of "breaking away MLAs from other parties using the lure of money" has come a cropper in Delhi File image of Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal YouTube screengrab "They tried to buy many of our MLAs contacted many but only one turned out to be a traitor One thing is clear we are of a different mettle And if any one sells himself then the people of Delhi will leave him in a position where he will not be able to show his face in public anymore" the AAP chief said Kejriwal’s outburst comes after a prolonged period of uncharacteristic silence following AAP’s string of poll debacles which included the drubbings in Punjab Goa a Delhi bye-election and the municipal polls in New Delhi "Try and conduct all polls using VVPAT-equipped EVMs if you (the BJP) have the guts Then tally the votes polled with the paper trail at 5 or 15 per cent of the polling booths You do mischief in EVMs then claim victory" he said The VVPAT machine dispenses a slip with the symbol of the party a person has voted for The slip drops in a box but the voter cannot take it home The voters however can see the voter-verifiable paper audit trail (VVPAT) slip for seven seconds VVPAT machines were used in the Bawana bypoll and also in the Rajouri Garden bypoll in May 2016 when the BJP had emerged victorious The chief minister also warned the BJP-led Centre not to "disrupt" his government’s work in the national capital by "throwing spanners" a complaint which the AAP chief has been making repeatedly since storming to power in

is the lifeline for approximately 88 crore people living in India who are dependent on farming Both excess and deficient rainfall take a toll on the farmer’s yield As per the final long-range forecast issued by the government’s official weather prediction agency Indian Meteorological Department this year "seasonal rainfall over the country as a whole was expected to be 98 percent of its long period average (LPA) in 2017 In actual the year ended with an all India average rainfall of 95 percent of its LPA — a deficiency of 5 percent The year 2016 also had a monsoon rainfall deficiency of 3 percent though within normal limits It is significant to note that both the years 2016 and 2017 ended with All India Summer Monsoon Rainfall on the negative side of the LPA after two consecutive monsoon deficient years 2014 and 2015” says Dr Kanti Prasad consultant at Weather Risk Management Services weather scientist and former deputy director general of India Meteorological Department Representational image AFP Weather Risk Management Services (WRMS) is a private sector organisation which provide weather and climate services (like IMD) to help farmers plan their farming activities during various cropping seasons In the monthly rainfall scenario during 2017 the country had normal monsoon during the months of June and July with All India average rainfall of +4 percent in June and +2 percent in July However the months of August and September turned out to be deficient with rainfall departures as -13 percent and -12 percent respectively due to prolonged break monsoon conditions The corresponding figures in 2016 were -11 percent for June (due to delayed onset) +7 percent for July -9 percent for August and -3 percent for September In the spatial rainfall distribution during the monsoon season in 2016 the rainfall was fairly well distributed over the country except for a few isolated pockets of deficient rainfall whereas rainfall distribution in 2017 shows a continuous belt of deficient rainfall extending from Punjab Haryana Uttar Pradesh to East Madhya Pradesh and Vidarbha In 2016 out of 36 meteorological subdivisions seasonal rainfall was normal in 23 subdivisions (72 percent of total area of India) and was excess in four subdivisions (13 percent of total area) It was deficient in the remaining nine subdivisions In 2017 out of 36 meteorological subdivisions seasonal rainfall was excess in five subdivisions normal in 25 and deficient in six subdivisions In 2016 withdrawal of monsoon commenced from West Rajasthan on 15 September (with a delay of two weeks) and withdrew completely from the entire country on 28 October During 2017 withdrawal of monsoon was significantly delayed It commenced from West Rajasthan towards the end of September on 27 The delay in withdrawal happened due to cyclonic activity over northwest India during the third week of September this year According to a study carried out by the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment there will be changes in the atmosphere like winds and moisture which are likely to be responsible for changes in wet and dry spells in the upcoming years After studying trends of monsoon rains of around 60 years the researchers have warned of extreme weather conditions in future The phenomena of increased intensity of rains in future can be attributed to global warming and India is not the only country affected by it In fact every country including the United States and Europe are witnessing such abnormal rains It is said that the intensified rains will be the order of the day and people have to deal with such heavy rains with better urban management techniques Research suggests that the rainy days will come down in future but the quantum of rain might not go down drastically due to heavy downpours Technology is available these days to predict such rains over a region but not finding out specific places receiving such downpours The author is a consultant at Weather Risk
