The world must not ignore this challenge" said Meslet UN insists talks go on The troubled talks — the latest in a long series of efforts to end Syria’s five-year conflict — failed to get off the ground this week despite hopes brought on by the ceasefire The partial truce brokered by the United States and Russia led to a dramatic drop in violence across Syria but a recent surge in fighting especially around second city Aleppo has raised fears of its total collapse The opposition announced Monday it was putting its participation on hold to protest escalating violence and restrictions on humanitarian access HNC coordinator Riyad Hijab said Tuesday that he and other delegates were beginning to leave Geneva "I will be travelling today along with some of my colleagues from the HNC Some people left yesterday and today and they will keep leaving gradually until Friday" he said "It is not suitable neither morally nor on the humanitarian side to be part of negotiations when Syrians are dying daily from sieges hunger bombings poisonous gases and barrel bombs" The UN has insisted the talks have not collapsed with its envoy Staffan de Mistura saying they would continue through the week Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also insisted the talks were "not frozen" while US State Department spokesman John Kirby said "we continue to believe in the political process in the importance of these talks" ‘Price of time is blood’ This week’s negotiations were meant to focus on Syria’s political future as the UN pushes a plan involving a transitional authority a new constitution and eventual elections But Assad’s fate has been the key sticking point with the opposition insisting he must go and the regime refusing File photo of Bashar Al-Assad Reuters Speaking in Moscow Lavrov said: "No one can win the war All experts recognise this "There are some external players who dream about deposing the regime by force and try to do everything including disrupting the talks in Geneva" The regime’s lead negotiator reiterated Tuesday that Assad’s fate remained off-limits but said Damascus was prepared to discuss the creation of a new unity government "A broader unity government is the only topic of discussion here" said Bashar al-Jafaari Syria’s ambassador to the UN World powers have backed the ceasefire and talks as the best hope yet to end a conflict that has devastated Syria killed more than 270000 people and forced millions from their homes But the rising violence in recent weeks has lowered expectations of a breakthrough Hijab called for international observers to be sent in and for ceasefire violators to be held to account He warned against wasting time saying: "For Syrians the price of time is blood" Danish lawmakers meanwhile approved a plan to

2012 and had a signed memorandum of understanding with her counterpart to create the US-Bangladesh Partnership Dialogue The fifth edition of the annual dialogue was held in Washington DC last week Suspected Islamic State terrorists last night stormed a restaurant in Dhaka’s Gulshan diplomatic area and took hostage at least 20 people including foreigners triggering a fierce gun battle with Bangladesh security forces in which two policemen were killed and 30 injured Naming Kiran Bedi who has spent just 5 days as a member of the BJP and in the active politics as the party’s chief ministerial candidate for Delhi is a big bold move by Narendra Modi and Amit Shah More so when only two days are to go before nomination of candidates close and only 16 days are left when the campaigning would come to a halt In his press conference the BJP chief who eloquently dwelt on Bedi’s academic administrative and social credentials sent out a clear massage to all concerned within party Parivar and outside that they should treat Bedi with due respect The confirmation of Bedi’s choice clearly indicates two factors counted most to Modi – winnability of an election and selecting a person who can be entrusted with his developmental agenda He has also answered sceptics within and outside of the BJP who speculated as to whether Bedi’s induction had RSS’s nod and whether the RSS would accept somebody from outside of its organisational structure and ideological moorings He has also rebuffed in-house dissenting opinions emanating from the likes Manoj Tiwari and Jagdish Mukhi A section of Delhi BJP leaders surely wouldn’t be comfortable with the newly chosen leader but the BJP parliamentary board did not think it to be a hindering factor so long as she is able to directly connect with the masses Earlier on Monday her inaugural road show in Rohini was considered to be a success both in terms of mobilisation of ground level workers and of voters Bedi’s persona is also seen as a match for Arvind Kejriwal’s charisma and she will outmatch the latter’s credentials as a fighter against “corruption and crime” the two factors that were repeatedly mentioned in Amit Shah’s 11 pm press conference on Monday night In Maharastra Haryana and Jharkhand the Modi-Shah duo discarded conventional political wisdom by choosing chief ministers outside of the numerically or socially dominant caste or community of the state concerned That’s a gamble whose consequences will be known only five years from now All three – Devendra Fadnavis Manohar lal Khattar and Rahgubar Das — had risen from the ranks in the party and had strong RSS rootings and as the BJP sources point out their personal integrity was the single most guiding factor in their nomination for the top post PTI In forming his cabinet however Modi brought in Suresh Prabhu and Manohar Parikar to fill top slots in the Union Cabinet where his party members in Parliament could not fill the requirement His Bedi pick can be seen as a similar if not identical move The Delhi experiment is also far more bold a move fraught with risks It is always easier to enforce compliance of post poll diktats than hazard the uncertainty of pre-poll complexities Modi could perhaps undertake this experiment because Delhi in any case is a “half-state” and it needs a good administrator than a good politician with strong ideological moorings Bedi by all counts is a seasoned administrator and has the capacity to take on high and mighty as also the entrenched groups A “Kiran versus Kejriwal” battle has placed BJP on an even keel with the Aam Aadmi Party Talking to the voters in various parts of Delhi Firstpost got a sense that apart from the middle class — which in these elections have gone over to the BJP — sections of people who were otherwise considered to be mainstay of AAP are also revising their opinion Also in the last elections AAP got a great deal of support from women voters Her credentials as a non-nonsense police officer could potentially help BJP in convincing a number of women voters that the party is serious about handling issue of women safety in Capital The BJP is still banking on Modi’s charisma to win the Delhi elections but unlike other states Delhi voters are conscious of the fact that Modi the PM can’t be CM And it is here that Kejriwal is scoring over the BJP By pitching Bedi in leadership position the BJP has blunted that edge Bedi couldn’t be on the dais when she was formally anointed to be the Chief Minister in waiting It’s a life time moment for any leader She and her party bosses would be hoping that a bigger moment may await her when voting concludes in three weeks
