the race fresher than ever (Source: Reuters) Top News The sight of Alberto Contador sitting up during the climbs on the Criterium du Dauphine was a worrying one for his fans – but was actually part of his new strategy to win a third Tour de France title Contador used to be one of a very few riders who went out for victory and nothing else when they pinned a race number on their back This time he has switched to a different approach one adopted by three-time champion Chris Froome: use all other races just to prepare for the Tour The Spaniard said his all-for-the-Tour strategy should mean he starts the race fresher than ever “Cycling is very difficult and I would prefer to win each race but I understand than this is a better approach I feel better than last year” the 34-year-old Contador told a news conference on Friday His Trek-Segafredo sports director Luca Guercilena explained that Contador was too old to chase other stage races as well as the Tour “I’m not stressed about it (him struggling at the Dauphine earlier this month) He’s ready to be up there and we are ready as a team” the Italian said “We took a softer approach to the Dauphine because we know the Tour is long It is something we believe he needed “Age is a factor The quality of big champions’ performances does not change over time but the way to getting to their best level is different and we needed to take care of that” Contador will enjoy the support of Dutchman Bauke Mollema 11th last year and seventh on the Giro d’Italia this season and Colombian Jarlinson Pantano a Tour stage winner The route with few summit finishes and limited time trial mileage is also expected to favour Contador who like France’s Romain Bardet and Ireland’s Dan Martin is an extremely aggressive and sometimes unpredictable rider “This route is very good for trying other tactics to do something different” said Contador “Many things can happen It’s not a typical route the Pyrenees and the Alps are really close this time and there will be other mountain stages before” The Tour starts on Saturday with a 14-km time trial in Duesseldorf where Contador hopes to limit the damage against Team Sky’s Froome and Australian Richie

wholesale price index inflation figures released on Tuesday indicated that the downward trend in inflation has reversed After falling for three months wholesale inflation increased from 468 per cent in February to 57 per cent in March Similarly retail inflation on which monetary policy is now based increased from 803 per cent to 831 per cent Though the high retail inflation in vegetables and fruit was largely responsible for the increase in headline CPI inflation core WPI inflation (which excludes food products) is also at a 12-month high Further wholesale inflation in manufactured goods has also risen Read in conjunction with the industrial production data released last week the economy may be facing a stagflationary crisis And contrary to the assertion that the RBI cannot impact retail inflation because monetary policy is not effective in controlling food prices the central bank can indeed rein in the price rise by dampening inflation expectations According to data released last Friday there was a 19 per cent year-on-year fall in the IIP for February on account of the continued sluggishness in the manufacturing sector It is difficult for Keynesian economics to reconcile the contracting manufacturing sector and complaints of unused capacity with manufacturing inflation But there is no need to reinvent the wheel — the US’s experience of stagflation during the 1970s among other instances tells us how to deal with it At the time in the US inflation was being blamed on the pass-through of the oil-price shocks and so the US Federal Reserve pursued an unduly loose monetary policy As a result high inflationary expectations got deeply entrenched and the Fed lost its credibility as an inflation fighter Precisely because of this when it finally acted to dampen expectations and inflation it resulted in the deep and painful “Volcker recession” In India too there are indications that inflation expectations are high and rising Only when it is low and stable for a long enough period of time will these expectations moderate This is where the RBI’s inflation targeting comes in The only way to deal with stagflation and nudge the economy back to a high-growth trajectory is to first counter inflation and thereby high inflation expectations It is imperative that the RBI maintain its credibility and keep inflation low stable And for those worried about growth let’s not forget that high inflation is inimical to growth because of the uncertainty it creates For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Editorial | Published: July 6 2016 1:00 am Top News The shrill response of the Aam Aadmi Party leadership to the arrests of Rajendra Kumar principal secretary to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Tarun Sharma deputy secretary to the CM and three other officials by the CBI is unbecoming of a party that rose to power on its promise of a principled fight against corruption The CBI has alleged that these officials are involved in a Rs 50-crore scam that unfolded since 2006 It is for the courts to decide the merit of the cases but the AAP’s response almost suggests a distrust in due process It has been quick to see a political conspiracy and has claimed that the case has been foisted on the officials by a Centre acting out of hostility towards the AAP government in Delhi A conspiratorial narrative starring Prime Minister Narendra Modi Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung and others and a plot in which Kejriwal is the chief target and victim has been constructed by the AAP leadership The transfers of 11 bureaucrats from the Delhi government to the Andamans has also been brought into this story by the AAP to shore up its allegation of an elaborate plan by the Centre to discredit Kejriwal Parties no doubt scheme to trip up rivals and certainly relations between the Centre and Delhi government have not been cordial However the AAP’s theatrical grumbling about political rivals its constant invocation of conspiracies and conflating of issues do not help its own case This episode frames a deeper problem: The AAP appears to have made an incomplete transition from movement to government its leadership still tends to blur the lines between party and government This is troubling particularly at a time when the party is also in campaign mode in Punjab and Goa The tone and rhetoric deployed by politicians in the electoral campaign often ill-suits leaders in office who are expected to respect the primacy of due process and express disagreement or difference of opinion while abiding by institutional constraints The CBI is the country’s foremost investigative agency and it does not behove a government to loosely accuse it of political motives In this particular case admittedly questions have been raised by the court about the CBI’s conduct and that is something the CBI must respond to Surely the government too can raise its concerns in court The AAP cannot claim immunity from due process for its officials or legislators Cases need to be fought in courts not by displays of public anger or the venting of outrage on the street By leaning towards the latter response the AAP does disservice to its role and responsibility as a party of government For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express News Service | New Delhi | Updated: June 18 2017 10:27 am Gautam Gambhir File photo Related News Gautam Gambhir has been given a suspended four-match ban for a dressing room confrontation with Delhi coach KP Bhaskar at the end of the cricket season in March The inquiry committee of which former all-rounder Madan Lal was the chairman in its report concluded that Gambhir’s outburst was premeditated with the intention to humiliate and was highly inappropriate and serious in nature Though the committee recommended a four-match ban at the start of the next season the high court appointed administrator of the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) Justice (retired) Vikramajit Sen decided to suspend the punishment for two years — till March 30 2019 However the reprieve comes with a rider — Gambhir should not be involved in similar incidents during this period Gambhir is 35 and the suspended sentence makes him eligible to play two full cricket seasons without facing any sanctions “I gave a personal hearing to Mr Gambhir on 11th June 2017 I thought it prudent not to take a decision during the continuance of the Indian Premier League for obvious reasons In the prevailing circumstances I consider it appropriate and expedient while accepting the Report & Recommendations of the Committee to suspend the punishment for a period of two years ending on 30th March 2019 conditional on Mr Gautam Gambhir accepting this order and provided he does not commit any similar transgressions” Justice Sen stated The three-member committee’s report also recommended that a redressal system for players needed to be set-up while at the same time disciplinary rules need to be established to deter players from indiscipline The committee however clearly stated the reasons for recommending a four-match ban for Gambhir “… Mr Gambhir’s actions towards Mr Pillai (KP Bhaskar) with premeditated intent to humiliate the coach on 06 March 2017 were highly inappropriate and of serious nature It is recommended that such inappropriate behaviour requires to be penalised not only in a proportionate manner but in a manner that has a deterrent effect so that it is not repeated and such issues are taken seriously by all team members” the committee stated For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsThat politics in India is inextricably linked to the politics of beefis well established But this phenomenon seems especially pronounced in the state of Karnataka where the BJP and the Congress have traded barbs and enacted legislation over beef The latest twist to this tale came on Mondaywhen Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath asked his Karnataka counterpart Siddaramaiahto ban beef "if he was a Hindu" "If Siddaramaiahis a Hindu then let him ban cow slaughter and beef in the state The BJP government previously had brought an effective piece of legislation to ban cow slaughter What did you (Siddaramaiah) do Soon after coming to power Congress retracted it" he said in Bengaluru on Sunday Siddaramaiahhit back at Adityanath saying the latter is nobody to question food choices and that a lot of Hindus eat beef "Before giving us lessons on gau hatya read what Swami Vivekananda says about the issue This is what I ask of Adityanath" he said "Who are these people to question our food choices A lot of Hindus eat beef If I want to eat it I will Who are they to object to it I don’t eat beef only because I don’t like it" File image of Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah AFP It was the latest in a long series of allegations and counter-allegations that have gone back and forth between the Congress and the BJP on the issue Beef ban Back in 2010 the BJP government in Karnataka passed the controversialPrevention of Slaughter and Preservation of Cattle Bill Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa had said at the time that it would protect and preserve cows in the state By doing so it followed other BJP-ruled states like Gujarat Madhya Pradesh Chhattisgarh which already had such laws in place The move met with angry reactions from the Congress camp Siddaramaiah then Leader of Opposition in the House tore a copy of the Bill and threw it in the air while Congress MPs termed the state government "communal" Going a step further Siddaramaiaheven added that abill of this nature would only be passed in "Hitler’s regime" not in a democracy "Is yours’ Hitler’s regime" he asked Yeddyurappa alleging that the state was "imposing a vegetarian" culture on the peopleand that by banning beef they would ensure the price of mutton would go up to Rs 1000 per kilogram Furthermore the bill would impactslaughter of cows not only for purposes of meat but also for other products like shoes leather belts nail polish films buttons etc "You’re making the lives of people miserable" Siddaramaiahsaid adding that it would cause a disturbance in society and have an adverse impact on harmony Overruling the beef ban However two years later the Congress won Assembly elections in Karnataka and Siddaramaiahhimself became chief minister One of itsfirst moves was to overturn the beef ban The state cabinet chaired by Siddaramaiahrestored the Karnataka Prevention of Cow Slaughter and Cattle Preservation Act 1964 that governed the slaughter of cattle in the state effectively reversing the legislation passed by the previous BJP government The BJP’s bill had widened the definition of cattle enforced harsherpunishments and increased the age of animals to be slaughtered Slaughter of not only cows but alsobulls bullocks male andfemale buffaloes and calves wasprohibited As per the 1964 law this wasrestricted to the slaughter of cows calves and she-buffaloes Slaughter of bulls bullocks and buffaloes if they were aged above 12 or if they were no longer fit for breeding or draught or did not give milk was allowed a PTI report mentioned Siddaramaiah stands by his decision The Karnataka chief minister had overturned the beef ban immediately upon coming to power and over the last four years he has stood by it Despite the clamour for banning the slaughter of cows across the Karnataka he insisted doing so would infringe upon citizens’ individual choice and freedom of food "Nobody could stop me from eating beef pork or any other meat if I wished to While I have never eaten cow meat if it were to suit my palate and I wanted to eat beef I will eat it Nobody can stop me I won’t be bogged down by BJP’s protests" he said further adding that the BJP leaders who spoke otherwise had "no idea" about the Constitution "I have completely read on freedom of food and I will abide by it" he added as quoted by The Times of India in 2015 In May last year the Centre issued a notification — ‘Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Regulation of Livestock
