only 051 per cent of its solar energy potential However the report which was tabled in Parliament on Tuesday said Rajasthan along with Gujarat has created more than 50 per cent of the total capacity installed in the country As per the report Rajasthan has an estimated potential of 142310 Mega Watt (MW) but its installed capacity stands at 73010 MW In percentage terms this is the second best in the top five high potential states which have 59 per cent of the national solar energy potential Madhya Pradesh leads with 056 per cent of its capacity installed In the 10 states endowed with 78 per cent of the national solar energy potential the exploited potential varied from zero to 256 per cent the CAG report further said “Gujarat and Rajasthan alone created more than 50 per cent of the capacity installed in the country but had exploited only 256 per cent and 051 per cent of their respective potentials” the report said On the other hand Jammu & Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh with potentials of 111050 MW and 33840 MW respectively had not set up any grid connected solar project The report also noted that against the target of 500 MW of solar thermal projects projects of 44750 MW (approximately 90 per cent) had not been commissioned as of February 2015 “Government land of 3404 acre in Rajasthan leased to six solar thermal project developers had also not been put to its intended use so far” it said adding “In Demonstration Programme in one case 345 acres of land had been leased in excess of requirement for a solar photovoltaic power plant” For wind energy the CAG noted that “during the year 2013-14 only 9880 MW could be added (in Rajasthan)” The desert state has a potential for 5050 MW and has an installed capacity of 2786 MW or 46 per cent This is much higher than the average of 20 per cent for the states The installed capacity in top 10 states varied from zero to 68 per cent of the potential Maharashtra had the highest exploitation of the wind energy potential at 68 per cent followed by Tamil Nadu at 51 per cent and Rajasthan at 46 per cent When it comes to biomass Rajasthan has a potential for 4595 MW but as of March 2014 had only generated 10130

Left-wing political praxis a mainstream Left government agreeing to get blackmailed by an extreme Left violent movement has rightly raised questions about governability Needless to add here that it is unlikely Maoist leaders are quaking in their sandals after Buddhadeb Bhattacharjees rediscovery of the states basic duties But we have to look beyond Bhattacharjee He is the man in charge at a time Bengals prime political experiment is going horribly wrong A large section of Bengals political/ intellectual/ cultural elite gloried in the exceptionalism that the experiment was supposed to have engendered Bengal was different Yes it was But just how difficultly differentfrom the point of view of sane political economyis becoming apparent only now Thisas it wereis the proper historical materialist context in which to understand the surrender of people who put up Stalins photograph to people who put up Maos The political experiment was that the CPM in Bengal could construct a viable progressive model that would both take away the attractions of radical violent communism and be an exception to mainstream Indian politics The CPM tried to answer radicalviolent communistswhose original leadership was in the CPMthrough land reform It sought to create a progressive exception to mainstream Indian politics by creating a political base on the back of labour intensive/ small plot cultivation and funneling the political support through the reinvigorated panchayat system Both parts of the experiment appeared to be politically successful initially But both suffered from a fatal political flaw: the assumption that cold-blooded hypocrisy will never be called to account What is the big deal about hypocrisy in politicsit is legitimate to ask The big deal is the CPMs kind of hypocrisy Heres what makes it special The hypocrisy was that the CPM in Bengal neverever extended its grand thesis of empowerment of the exploited beyond reallocating land and encouraging labour-intensive cultivation; the limitations of the second process as a transformative agent are well-known and the inevitable happened in Bengals case as well We are inured to the fact that Bengals social indicators are terrible But let us ask why this should be the case when a state is ruled for more than 30 years by a party that swore by the aam aadmi long before the Congress discovered him The CPMs blatant hypocrisy about its progressive agenda showed up brutally clearly in its lack of interest in building social infrastructure Bengal should have been bursting at the seams with reasonable quality social infrastructure It is not because the CPM in the state did not actually give a toss about real empowerment Travels through Bengals villages produce a kind of despair that you will never feel while driving through many other states that have always been host to very unprogressive politics Much mindspace is occupied by the CPMs late and horrendously unsuccessful attempts to give private industrial capital a more prominent space in the state But think about the problem in a different way: When the CPM realised the economic limitations of the small plot-based agricultural modelit turned to industrial capitalit did not simultaneously attempt a late rectification of the inadequate social infrastructure problem Of coursebringing in big industrial capital was a good idea; its always a good idea But the significant thing in this context is that it was the CPMs only idea CPM still didnt think it was worth its while to invest political energy behind not just industry but also better primary educationbetter schoolstolerable rural roads When Bhattacharjee went big on private industry was therefore also when the CPMs special hypocrisy about its progressive agenda became absolutely clear That hypocrisy is now under political interrogation in the state and Bhattacharjee can do nothing at this stage to convince Bengal that the CPM is capable of changing Thats why the Maoists violence in Bengal is much more potent than in other states In Bengalhte Maoists have the advantage of taking on a political party that has bluffed its way through for more than 30 years in the name of helping the poor and the exploited The CPM in Bengal now lacks credibility in a specially horrific way that doesnt apply to established political parties in other Maoist-affected states Bengals government looks haplessineffectual in the face of Maoists fundamentally because politically the CPM is hollowed out It is funnyin this contextthat the multinational intellectuals letter to Manmohan Singh on the Maoists should make such a to-do about neoliberal economic policies The Maoists biggest tactical advantage is not the imagined depredation caused by market-friendly economic policies It is in Bengalwhere progressive policies have caused real deepening of deprivation More thoughtful interventions than that intellectuals letter in the debate about the Maoists make the point that state failure to provide social infrastructure cannot be written out of the solution to the problem This of course requires the caveat that Maoist leaders are not going to stop murdering constables and poor villagers once schools and primary clinics are more plentiful and better equipped The Maoist leadership is in violentunlawfulmurderous confrontation with the state and the state must respond accordingly But better social infrastructure will certainly make the Maoists job more difficult in terms of building a barefoot army The same rule applies to Bengal Except that people who do not have access to halfway decent social infrastructure in Bengal have been fed a tall story for decades about their very own government looking out for them Theres nothing more the CPM can say that will make any real difference Bhattacharjee may not directly barter with the Maoists again any time soon But his not giving anything to the Maoists matters much less than the CPM not having anything left to give to Bengal [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsPublished: April 6 2016 4:37 am Top News The cover story in the Organiser on Jana Sangh founder Deendayal Upadhyaya notes that he “never accepted the Two-Nation Theory and always moved forward bearing in his hands the torch of Undivided Bharat” Noting that “an undivided Bharat is not just a slogan for us it is the foundation of all our philosophy of life” the article traces Upadhyaya’s journey and says that he “organised a nationwide satyagraha against the hindrances created in the way of Kashmir’s accession to India” Elaborating his views on the nation-state it says “the federalism as accepted in the Constitution was for him a basic mistake of the politics of India” Upadhyaya wanted power to be decentralised to the level of janapada and panchayat units but we “unfortunately we aped the Westerners and formed a union of states of Bharat” Criticising Nehruvian economics the article says that “we became inclined towards another regulatory set of Westerners — socialism Five-Year Plans were devised on the footsteps of Soviet Russia” It quotes Upadhyaya: “Only a two-word remedy is enough for the problems in Indian economy First is ‘Swadeshi’ and another is decentralisation” Pointing out that “the political idea of ‘nation-state’ came from [the] West” it says that “Deendayalji exposed the inhumanity inherent in it and gave a mantra of geocultural nationalism” Mother Tongue An article in the Organiser talks about the significance of imparting education in the mother tongue It quotes Kannada writer SL Bhyrappa who said at an event at the Guwahati Press Club “as English-medium schools are growing in number across the country we have to think over the implication of this development seriously” He added “In Karnataka English-educated youths are not interested to read anything in Kannada not even the newspaper headlines in language dailies” The article says English has emerged “as a major challenge to all Bharatiya languages” as people no longer want to send their children to non-English-medium schools “The result is that more and more youths in our country now remain unaware of the local languages and literatures” Bhyrappa said The Kannada Sahitya Parishad moved the high court and subsequently the Supreme Court with an appeal that the medium of instruction for children should be the mother tongue till Class 10 but the apex court dismissed it “Unless there is a specific law in this regard we cannot expect justice” the article says and hopes for new legislation because “Prime Minister Modiji also supports the concept [of educating] children in [the] mother tongue” Hedgewar’s Dream An article in Panchajanya on RSS founder Keshav Baliram Hedgewar says that his dream to “unify Hindus was based on factual and historical evidence” History shows that “those who created this great nation… were known as Hindus” it says and notes that “Hindus existed before the emergence of Islam or Christianity” The nation remain-ed at the pinnacle as long as the Hindus remained united and when they disintegrated it was “swallowed by the darkness of slavery” Therefore “Dr Hedgewar reached the conclusion that for the nation’s resurrection” the awakening of Hindus become imperative The nation faced a new challenge after the Mughal invasion “They were keen to destroy our national identity and structure” the article says and notes that “they were against every aspect of our national life” Hedgewar’s perspective on Muslims was determined by nationalist concerns and didn’t have any communal tone “He did not have any hatred towards Muslims” it says adding that “he had a heartfelt bond with patriotic Muslims… He did not differentiate between a patriotic Muslim and a patriotic Hindu” The article cites several instances when Hedgewar had close bonds with Muslims who also praised him
