100 per metric tonne to farmers supplying cane to factories,Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said “The government will extend major relief to the sugar sector by allowing export of molasses in other states or abroad It would also urge the centre to create a buffer stock of 50 lakh metric tonne of sugar These measures will go a long way in providing the relief to the sugar mills” The government will guard the interest of both farmers and sugar sector with policy reforms he added The 288-member state legislative assembly was clearly divided between Western Maharashtra and rest on the issue leading to isolation of Nationalist Congress Party In terms of numbers almost 200 MLAs setting aside party lines joined hands to counter the 88 MLAs from Western Maharashtra which is essentially associated with the home turf of political heavyweights in Congress and NCP Congress MLA Vijay Waddittewar countered NCP in the Assembly asking “Why should cotton growers in Vidarbha which witnessed highest number of suicides get a raw deal” Interestingly Congress BJP and Shiv Sena consolidated to outwit NCP’s demand for financial package for the sugar mills The uproar in the assembly lead to adjournment of the House for the day The members of ruling Shiv Sena and BJP sought justice for small and marginal farmers in Vidarbha Marathwada and North Maharashtra and Konkan Some of the members representing Vidarbha Marathwada and Konkan asked “Show us one case where a sugar mill owner or a cane cultivator has committed a suicide Where as cotton belt is worst hit with hundreds of farmers suicides” Former deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar told The Indian Express “The financial subsidy of Rs 500 per metric tonne of sugar cane is the only way out to sustain the crisis in the sugar sector Even the cash compensation on loans cannot help the sector following major decline of sugar prices in domestic market” However both finance minister Sudhir Mungantiwar and Cooperation Minister Chandrakant Patil said “If we concede to their demand we would have to provide Rs 4500 crore It is just not possible to extend such massive cash compensation” For all the latest Mumbai News download

Karmakar first made history and then stared in desolation at the giant screen feeling very tiny in the face of the world The 22-year-old Indian gymnast had just become the first Indian to make it to the event finals of Vault at the World Championships last Saturday after qualifying seventh — the top 8 line up for the individual apparatus finale But the blown-up score at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow was also showing how her name had plunged in the overall tally She had faltered on the Balance Beam — the toes never assured and slipping in uncertainty once and sloppily landed on her backside very early on the Uneven Bars before she retrieved her nerve to finish her routine She would finish an obscure 103rd in the all-around with a total of 49966 (15100 — Vault; 10000 — Uneven Bars; 12333 — Balance Beam; 12533 — Floor Exercise) The Tripura girl was 26th on the table to make it to the Test event that will serve as qualification for the Rio Olympics missing the grade of Top 24 by 05 points She was watching her Olympic dream vamooze her bounding leap on the Vault brought down shattering by her lacklustre showing on the other apparatus Share This Article Related Article On the biggest-achieving night of her gymnastics career — on the Produnova her first jump she had the 8th best score among 250 odd vaulters on that day — she was staring at a grim possibility that all her efforts could come to nought if she didn’t get on the podium of Vault a week later or earn a wildcard — for which she was at the mercy of the international body the FIG “My performance wasn’t as great in the three events except for vaulting So my mood was a little off” said the fiery gymnast who has attracted global attention by attempting some of the most dangerous routines that are performed on the vaulting table “Actually I took too much pressure on the vault I wasn’t aware I could be so narrowly close to the Test event scores and then missing it The focus was entirely on vault that went well but the rest wasn’t upto the mark Some days things don’t click” she said a day before she is to appear in the finals of the Vault But Dipa has not achieved what she has in the last year by sulking away the setbacks in her life A Commonwealth Games bronze another third place podium at the Asian Championships and now India’s first finalist at the Worlds India’s best gymnast coming from one of the smallest states of the country is known for her ferocious will when confronted with heavy odds “It’s very tough lekin main bhi kuchh chhodne waali nahi hoo Main bhi apna poora zor lagaa doongi medal ke liye Koi shaq bhi nai ki 1 per cent bhi usme kami rahegi” she said defiantly Her father Dulal Karmakar remembers her as an extremely stubborn child who would disappear for hours on successive days till she perfected a particular manouvre at Agartala “I won’t give up till the end Whatever I have learnt in my life I will put into these two jumps of the final Vault is a lot about luck but I’m not leaving even a small percentage to chance” The odds are astounding Though Vault is a promising event with the incidence of a World Championship medallist from a ‘non-conventional’ country (beyond the US and Russia and Romania) being higher than on any other apparatus “Anything can happen in this event That’s why we love the risk” Dipa says Up against the best “The finals will be very difficult — there’s gymnasts from US and Russsia and several Olympic gold silver medallists in my final as well as World Championship finalists from last two times” she explained Karmakar had won the Commonwealth Games at the same venue but the first sighting of the strutting American team blazing in their blingy pink on qualification day had been intimidating she admits “Yes CWG was good but there were 23-25 countries there now there’s 90 This is the big one — I’ve never competed against Americans or Russians in finals Nothing from the past matters” she said Even failures of the poor qualifying day on other apparatus need to be forgotten she insists “She was the only girl among Indians at the World Championships Just watching the Americans she was nervous” father Dulal says On the Vault Dipa’s been in good form though not exactly in the medal-bracket “The Tsukahara 720 was a new Vault but I could perform it well and I was happy just to get the landing right I scored more than I expected — 14700 which was good for my first international attempt Now I’ll hope to reach 15000 on that one in the final and get a better rank” she said On the Produnova which boasts a Difficulty of 7000 making it the sternest test for anyone in the finals Dipa’s finished stumbling on squats a few times and is hoping for sticking a standing landing “She needs to finish standing That will push up her score” coach Bisweshwar Nandi says “My confidence on that has grown over the last one year But it’s 1 per cent luck” she says over the telephone hitting a wry tone “It’s my best Vault But I need some good fortune” Dipa adds “I can improve more than 15100 At the Asian Championship I’d done 15300 I’ll aim for 15500” All this decimal crunching — the all-important perfecting of her technique while keeping her poise — masks every sacrifice that has gone into reaching upto here Dipa’s lost count of the Durga Pujas she’s missed in the last few years “She talks about it but these days she makes an effort to not sound sad” says Dulal who hasn’t met his daughter for six months now since the time she started on the camp in Delhi Dipa had travelled to Agartala to complete her BA in Pol Science earlier but has been holed up at the IG Stadium putting together the two complicated jumps on the vault It’s an eerie silence at home given the Karmakar household had a hyperactive kid whiz around them for a decade and half — her restlessness helping the father decide she should be packed off to gymnastics “I would’ve initially been happy if she just represented India internationally In Tripura former gymnasts Montu and Kalpana Debnath are spoken of with respect But in the last one year I’ve told her to aim higher I quit on gymnastics because it was too far from my house and I had to walk many kilometres” says the weightlifting SAI coach “But my daughter hasn’t learnt to give up” he says with pride You’ll know the younger daughter’s home when the Karmakar household gives up on rice and starts cooking rotis “You know how difficult that is for a Bengali” the father laughs “But compared to what my daughter’s doing it’s nothing” he says suddenly emotional When Dipa sprints down the ramp on Saturday and takes off for a jump — the difficulty considered steepest in the world — it’ll be nothing short of a leap of faith for the bold Indian who’s dared to fly What she needs though is to stick a landing on her two steady feet Vault Finals: From 630 pm IST For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Geety Sahgal | Mumbai | Published:
