later at 6 pm With the extension the total number of polling hours has gone up to 11 hours from nine The ECI notification came after consultations were held between Chief Election Commissioner V S Sampath and Election Commissioners H S Brahma and Nasim Zaidi The commission had discussed the issue recently before giving its final approval The Delhi Election Commission had on March 11 requested the ECI to extend the earlier voting window — 8 am to 5 pm — by one hour on each side Delhi Chief Electoral Officer Vijay Dev had made the request stating that “people prefer to get out to vote when it is not too hot We have therefore asked that time be extended both in the morning and the evening” Apart from the bigger turnout in the recent Delhi Assembly elections the increase in voting hours is also expected to accommodate the jump in the number of voters in the country During the Delhi Assembly elections held in December 2013 nearly 17 lakh people were still in queue after the deadline for voting ended at 5 pm As a result the Delhi Election Commission had to keep voting open with polling drawing to a close in Okhla constituency around 930 pm According to EC officials since the elections will be held in summer more voters are expected to turn up to cast their vote towards the evening The EC is expecting approximately 814 crore voters (an increase from 713 crore in the last

download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsWritten by Ram Puniyani | Published: August 20 2015 12:24 am Babasaheb Purandare is the author of a series of works on Shivaji Related News Some concerned citizens have reportedly filed a public interest litigation tostop the highest award of the Maharashtra government the Maharashtra Bhushan from going to Babasaheb Purandare Purandare is known for his works Raja Shiva-Chatrapati and Jaanata Raja (all-knowing king) This is not the first time that there has been such a controversy around Purandare A few years ago the Maharashtra government had appointed him as the chairmanof the committee that was to plan the building of a statue of Shivaji in the Arabian Sea The Maratha Mahasangh objected to this appointment on the ground that Shivaji was a Maratha while Purandare is a Brahmin Purandare’s interpretation of Shivaji presents him as one who was devoted to Brahmins and cows (go brahman pritpalak) and one who was against Muslims This interpretation of Shivaji has been the version most often used by sectarian political groups as this presents him as the upholder of the supremacy of upper castes on the one hand and at the same time looks down upon Muslim kings Maharashtra has seen many controversies related to Shivaji There was an attack on the Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute (Bori) Pune a few years ago The issue at that time was that this institute had helped Western author James Laine in the writing of his book Shivaji: Hindu King in Islamic India In the book Laine had cast aspersions on the character of Shivaji’s mother by mentioning the rumours around her at that time Maratha-Brahmin politics was at the root of this incident — Bori is regarded as being a Brahminical institute In yet another controversy just before the 2009 assembly elections a poster of Shivaji killing Afzal Khan with a knife became the provocation for communal violence in the Dhule-Sangli area during which one person was killed and a tense atmosphere was created The poster appeared to suggest that Shivaji was the representative of all Hindus while Afzal Khan was standing in for all Muslims This is fertile ground for hatred to develop and the consequent violence polarised the communities which led to the victory of the communal forces in the election One recalls another controversy around Shivaji That was when human rights activist Teesta Setalvad had prepared a handbook of history for school teachers in which she narrated the incident of Maharashtra Brahmins refusing to coronate Shivaji as he was a Shudra A priest from Kashi Gaga Bhatt had to be invited He did coronate him but with the little toe of the left foot as that is the organ which according to Brahminical norms is lowest in the body hierarchy Local Shiv Sainiks objected to this handbook on the ground that Shivaji was not a Shudra and no one should dare claim him as such History has its own truth but emotions operate on a different wavelength What is true is that Shivaji was a king who reduced the burden of taxation on poor peasants That is what made him popular among the masses Also the legend of Shivaji asking his army to return the Muslim daughter-in-law of Kalyan’s nawab evokes deep respect for him among the people of Maharashtra The memory of his policies towards the rayyat (cultivating farmers) also makes him a revered figure in Maharashtra Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak was the first to recall Shivaji’s role in history by organising a Shivaji festival Tilak presented him as a protector of Brahmins and cows Since then Shivaji has staged a comeback in the social memory but acquired an upper-caste orientation The later popularisation of Shivaji was done by communal forces that centred the narrative on Shivaji’s battles with Aurangzeb and Afzal Khan These battles with two Muslim kings are highlighted while Shivaji’s battles with Hindu kings are underplayed or omitted While his battle with Aurangzeb was for power the official who came from Aurangzeb’s side was Raja Jai Singh a major figure in Aurangzeb’s administration In the case of Afzal Khan it was Shivaji’s bodyguard — his rustam e zaman — who advised him to carry iron claws For Afzal Khan Krishnaji Bhaskar Kulkarni served as his secretary But these battles for power have now been given religious colour Today Shivaji is being used to sharpen communal (Hindu-Muslim) divides and also to drive a wedge between Brahmins and Marathas The rational understanding of Shivaji has been excellently presented by the late Govind Pansare in his popular book Shivaji Kon Hota (Who was Shivaji) Panasre’s YouTube video “Janatecha Raja Shivaji” is also brilliant The shadow boxing around Shivaji is in a way a reflection of underlying communal politics and caste struggle The real Shivaji needs to be understood so we can undermine these sectarian tendencies The writer formerly with IIT-Mumbai is associated with various human rights groups
