Vizag and Gopalpur a relay of all the reporters on the story and details of the cyclone’s progress‘ The worst is still to come’ it promised Related News TV channels competed to provide edgy coverage of Cyclone Hudhud They called it “cyclone tourism” We saw people in Visakhapatnam dotting the coastline to either watch the waves roll in towards them or to capture them on their mobile phones TV reporters warned viewers against such idling since it could have fatal consequences as Hudhud assaulted the Andhra Pradesh coastline with destructive ferocity (CNN-IBN) Television news may have liked to heed its own advice On Sunday before during and after Cyclone Hudhud channels seemed to be offering sightseeing package tours: “360 coverage only on CNN-IBN” “Headlines Today brings you 360” of Cyclone Hudud Aaj Tak had at least four reporters in raincoats describing the scenery sorry scenes from different vantage points in Visakhapatnam or Gopalpur Orissa CNN-IBN had at least eight It reminded you uncannily of coverage for Modi in the US The anchors and reporters spoke excitedly So would you if you were buffeted by winds of 100 kmph — “It’s quite a task even to stand here” gasped the NDTV 24×7 correspondent trying to keep her feet on the ground And as Hudhud approached landfall their descriptions grew more animated with forebodings This was no ordinary package tour this was an impending horror show: at 930 am on Sunday DD News showed us tidal waves out at sea The reporter shouted at the speed of the cyclone describing what would happen by 12 noon when the cyclone would make landfall If you had family friends in Vizag and listened to him your fear factor would have increased by at least 15 per cent Aaj Tak’s tour was different: it offered minute details— “high waves of 102 m wind speed 170-200 kmph ‘eye’ 35 mm in diameter 100 km away” with a mystical twist: “People have faith in the cyclone they have faith that the cyclone will come and go soon” Channels like NDTV 24×7 constantly had breaking news on when the “landfall” would be — two hours to go one hour 30 minutes — rather like a countdown CNN-IBN’s Now Showing with film critic Rajeev Masand was actually Now Showing Cyclone Hudhud: it had a map with red alerts on Vizag and Gopalpur a relay of all the reporters on the story and details of the cyclone’s progress “The worst is still to come” it promised

“clockwise” “anti-clockwise” the “lull” when Vizag was in the “eye” and how the storm would worsen thereafter He said people should remain indoors Except as all the channels told us there was no electricity in the city as a precautionary measure so people could not hear the warnings at all By 1 pm the news channels were beaming reporters windswept as the streets beside the felled trees and shattered homes The helpline numbers were emblazoned (yes but there was no electricity) on all channels and everyone was tracking the “route of the storm” News X found a beached octopus in Gopalpur

drive ahead of the organisational elections has left top leadership in the Congress worried in Maharashtra May 15 which was the last date for the drive failed to elicit the desired response within the party members as well outsiders A section within the party has also urged the AICC to urge the election commission to give further extension However no decision has been conveyed to the Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) as yet MPCC president Ashok Chavan said “The Congress central observer Mahesh Joshi (ex-MP Rajasthan) will arrive in Mumbai on Friday We are assimilating the reports from various districts across state Our focus is on organisational elections which mandates we have to cover at least 60 per cent of our total booths” Party leaders have reconciled that in current political situation great enthusiasm amongst the people to get associated with Congress was not expected However what makes district leaders — especially in Vidarbha Marathwada and western Maharashtra — worried is the lack of initiative from the Congress members during the enrolment drive A senior functionary involved in the enrolment process revealed “Frankly our enrolment drive is not going to match the BJP which has digitally registered 110 crore members in state We are looking at meeting the moderate target beginning with 10 to 15 lakh members who have always remained loyal party workers” A former senior Congress minister from western Maharashtra requesting anonymity told The Indian Express “As per our party guidelines an individual can become an active Congress member eligible to contest elections or become an office-bearer provided he enrolls 25 members We sense poor response from party leaders even in this exercise” Officially MPCC believes the summer season is not suitable for the membership enrolment People are on vacation students busy with examination and farmers caught in their own problems In the absence of immediate polls enrolment appears a disconnect with people At least 25 senior Congress leaders who have been associated with the party for the last three decades elicited similar response on the current membership and organisational election drive An MPCC office-bearer said “The cadre is demoralised after the 2014 Lok Sabha and Assembly elections The successive poll victory of the BJP in municipal council zilla parishad and gram panchayat elections have left even the established MLAs worried” Secondly he said “There are no efforts from the AICC or MPCC to hold internal brain-storming sessions to streamline the organisation or do long-term planning” The reports across Marathwada Vidarbha north Maharashtra western Maharashtra and Konkan have shown that the Congress local workers are not taking the extra initiative which was necessary to connect the people with the party ahead of the organisational polls A senior leader from Konkan said “Today we don’t know the status of our own senior leader like Narayan Rane who attacks party leaders one day and praises them the next day” Similarly the ongoing four-phase “Sangharsh Yatra” saw the NCP hijacking the rallies at every place Several senior leaders who could have made a
