First-time MPs at work, writes Advaita Kala

first_imgOn the day of the oath-taking, I had dinner with a first-time Member of Parliament and his family. The MP was clearly in the majority, as statistics show that 315 of the 543 members of parliament in the 16th Lok Sabha are first timers. In fact, an endearing visual takeaway from the marathon oath-taking was the “crowd” shots, when one would catch a presumably new MP looking around in wonder, taking in the sights.A story was recounted that evening about an MP who had not known in January this year what his next move would be, having recently returned to the party.But as it turned out, he had gone on to get a ticket and now found himself sitting in Parliament. The ‘Modi wave’ had carried him across, a transition that no astrologer could have predicted. Pride I recalled my own experience from a few years ago, when my rakhi brother had won his seat and we all trooped over to the public gallery to watch him take the oath.It was a by-election so his oath-taking was slotted during the course of the day. After multiple security checks and being told to sit with decorum, we waited for his turn. It lasted all of two minutes before the house was adjourned as protests of some sort erupted. We were disappointed at having been shortchanged despite the elaborate drill we had undergone to get there. But the feeling of exhilaration and pride remained.That night I sat with this family and their political help who mirrored some of my own feelings from that day a few years ago. Most of my observations from my visit to Parliament were simplistic and personality-centred. I recall how respectful Mr Advani was of his party members, placing his bag next to his seat in the first row and then walking all the way to the back to greet every member of his party, row by row.advertisementI remember the Congress party members in languid repose till Mrs Gandhi walked in and they seemed to straighten up, some even rising from their seats. There was something exhilarating about a woman being in charge in the way she had been that day. Then there was the assortment of MPs sporting colourful headgear conspicuous against the muted colour scheme of the House. And everything appeared smaller than one had imagined, the grand personages occupying the front seats seemingly diminished and all too human. Transitory Today the new parliamentarian spoke of the same Mr Advani choosing to sit on his own in the Central Hall. It wasn’t said with malice but underscored the transitory nature of power.Maybe he should have just retired, someone suggested, remained only an elder. His office is gone, another offered, and then the conversation turned to another media obsession – Baba Ramdev? Agyaatvaas? No, someone said, he did an interview about black money the other day.This diverse group of people with their independent focus areas will make up this new dispensation. Everyone will need to be accommodated and cajoled. A strong vein of emotion has run through this election and its aftermath and it shall remain. The tragic passing of Gopinath Munde has cast its shadow. Conspiracy theories have no takers but there is concern about what will happen in Maharashtra. Who will replace him? There are comments passed on the demeanour of some leaders on the first day, the bonhomie most unbecoming of people who were supposed to be in mourning. The conversation continues but it now moves to the practicalities.Access Will MPs get their own offices?The answer is no.I speak of my rakhi brother and how he had divided his home into an office-cum-residence, sectioning off the front of the house for his visitors. His family had to adjust to visitors of all kinds, at all times of the day and night. An MP’s home in Delhi becomes the port of call for constituents and state party workers who cannot be turned away regardless of the time of day; stories travel all the way back home. Houses will take time to be readied, no one grumbles about the ones who are yet to vacate. Till then state bhawans are home. There is griping about the food and the service at the one they occupy, one isn’t even offered a glass of water in the canteen. A political secretary needs to be hired; someone who can seek and schedule appointments. Even a newcomer will do but he must be efficient. How much are they paid, I ask. Oh some want to do it for free, my friend tells me. It is all about access. The art of politics on close observation is the art of “hanging around”. It is not very different from Bollywood. People spend a lot of time around others doing seemingly nothing. And yet there is always an agenda, frenetic networking. Often someone will whisper that this is “so and so” and he has direct access to “so and so”.advertisementOne realises that in Delhi, if you are an outsider to the circles of power, as many of the MPs in the 16th Lok Sabha are, the battle for relevance starts early and never really ends. Already this team of MPs has sent two letters to the PM. They share the details with pride. The relevance of the matters they raise for their constituency and beyond is admirable. It’s the kind of out of the box thinking the new PM is known to encourage. The new MPs will need to think beyond their own limited geographies and identify constituents around the country. This government promises to be different, and modest origins (one hopes) will not be a bar for political relevance. And a telling enthusiasm assures one that victory may have been unanticipated by many but the opportunity it presents will not be ignored.

Kinder Morgan approval a call to arms says Grand Chief Stewart Phillip

first_img(Protest this past weekend in Vancouver against Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline proposal. The NEB approved the project Thursday with 157 conditions. Photo courtesy: Marlin Olynyk)Brandi Morin APTN National NewsThe decision by the National Energy Board (NEB) to approve the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline project is a “call to arms” said the Grand Chief of the Union of BC Indian Chiefs.Stewart Phillip is a well-known opponent of the project and was arrested in the fall of 2014 on Burnaby mountain for protesting Kinder Morgan and says he “absolutely, without question,” is willing to get arrested again.“In many ways, yesterday’s NEB decision will represent a call to arms to the multitude of groups and organizations that are vehemently opposed the Trans Mountain pipeline proposal,” said Phillip. “It will serve to exasperate and escalate an already volatile situation with respect to the grave concerns people have in regard to a catastrophic tanker spill or a mainline rupture along the route.”Although he’s disappointed in the approval that’s coupled with 157 conditions, he said he’s not the least bit surprised the project was given the go ahead. He calls the NEB process “irreparably and deeply flawed.”“In many ways not only is the NEB process completely broken, it’s an absolute sham. And cannot be relied on to deliver responsible decisions with respect to large scale development projects,” he said.Claims that expansion of the pipeline to load more oil to the west coast will benefit the country are a farce, he added.“I want to make something abundantly clear here…the NEB declared this is in the national public interest. I find that to be complete hypocrisy given the enormous public opposition to the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline proposal,” he said.“Let’s be clear, it’s not just Indigenous people’s that are opposed to this project; the City of Vancouver is opposed, the City of Burnaby is opposed, there’s a multitude of environmental conservation organizations that are opposed. The vast majority of the general public have publicized their opposition to this project. The public that the NEB in its self-serving way is catering to is the oil industry and its crony’s in government. It’s a very small interest group,” said Phillip.He said proponents interests were bought and paid for and taken into consideration, however the review process didn’t provide a process for cross examination and was highly restrictive for opponents of the project.Phillip met one on one in a heated meeting with Natural Resource Minister Jim Carr to bring forward concerns, but said it didn’t go over well.“He sat there and he kept repeating the need to grow the economy. And he really wasn’t the least bit interested in talking about environmental considerations and the water.” The Trudeau government announced a three member panel that’s tasked with engaging communities and affected Indigenous groups while reviewing feedback to be provided online regarding the project and project related issues.It’s expected to commence in July and wrap up in November.“The panel members reflect the experience, perspective and understanding of local issues and relationships needed to advise the government as we advance the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project to a final decision in December,” said Minister Carr in an online statement. “Phillip is leery of the new panel because he said one of its members has close ties with Kinder Morgan.“I don’t know who the other two members are but I do know that the former chief of the Tsawwassen First Nation, Kim Baird is a member. She entered into a contractual arrangement with Kinder Morgan with Ian Anderson (president of Kinder Morgan) himself. She was taken into Kinder Morgan’s House for a year. I believe it to be a conflict of interest,” he said.It’s now up to the Trudeau government to make the final decision in December and Phillip said it’s time for Trudeau to “walk his walk.”“I think he’s in an incredibly difficult place having made those significant commitments to Indigenous Peoples of this country. Without question we expect him to walk the walk…Eloquent public platitudes are not adequate to address the grave concerns we have about the need to protect the natural environment and the constitutional and legal interest of First Nations,” said Phillip.Melina Laboucan-Massimo, Lubicon Cree First Nation member and Greenpeace Canada Climate and Energy Campaigner agrees.“If Canada wants to be a leader on climate, you don’t approve more pipelines, just look at the fires burning out of control in Fort Mac right now- that can be attributed to climate change,” said Laboucan-Massimo.With the federal government’s recent statements in New York at the United Nations to fully implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) she is hoping the government will stand by their word. There are 17 First Nations in B.C. and Alberta opposed to the pipeline expansion.“I’d ask him (Trudeau) to actually adhere to and uphold what he committed to in his campaign trail (to Indigenous Peoples). My worry is that he’s obviously saying a lot of things…we’ll see if he will follow through with his words with action. How they will actually take into account the recommendations despite the fact that this would violate the UNDRIP – (due to) free prior and informed consent and the right to say no.”Last weekend Laboucan-Massimo attended a rally in Vancouver that blocked the entrances to the Kinder Morgan offices and saw hundreds of people attend in protest against the development.For her, it’s about addressing the bigger issue, climate change, in which each pipeline plays a part in further provoking.“My hope is that they’ll (government/industry) actually listen to people but also listen to science. Climate scientists are telling us that we can’t continue to burn fossil fuels. If the Trudeau government in Paris committed to a 1.5 scenario, which would keep global temperatures below 1.5- then building a pipeline like this will keep us locked into a carbon intensive future. It’s a contradiction in so many ways. If they want to continue to build reconciliation and respect with Indigenous peoples in their own homelands, it’s all about listening to the opposition and respecting the UNDRIP.”[email protected]last_img read more
