Top News Rahul Gandhi has said that the bullet train proposed by the Prime Minister is just for him and his suit-boot friends I have a surprise for him I just travelled from Beijing to Shanghai by bullet train It was crowded with ordinary Chinese families children and elderly people There is a station dedicated to bullet trains of which many operate in China Indeed half of Chinese rail passenger traffic takes the bullet train The bullet train remark illustrates a basic problem with development thinking in the Congress and generally in India It is assumed that anything new and modern can only benefit the rich This includes all reform which makes business easier or more profitable Politicians begin with the assumption that growth has to be restrained to protect the less well-off Workers may lose their jobs if productivity improves or a merger takes pace (as in the case of SBI consolidation) So protect the currently employed and discourage growth India wasted 30 years after Independence not pursuing growth but self-sufficiency import substitution and an elite brand of socialism China also wasted 30 years after 1949 while Mao indulged in his fantasy development policy In the late Seventies India and China had the same per capita income In China luckily Deng Xiaoping realised the transformative role of rapid growth and pursued it with a single-mindedness that made China the only country ever to enjoy three decades of sustained high growth In 2008 China displayed its achievements at its Olympics while also launching its bullet trains which span the vast country ensuring fast travel India wasted the Eighties with liberalisation of imports but no structural reform Too much borrowing crashed the economy in 1991 It was Narasimha Rao and Manmohan Singh who saved the country by undertaking drastic reforms But they lost their élan before their term was over Thereafter reforms became halting beleaguered and half-hearted There was no reform of labour laws no revival of manufacturing and no attempt to give farmers sustainable livelihoods away from land During the UPA-II years there was retrogression with environmental restraints throttling development Then the Singur strategy of destroying manufacturing initiatives became policy in the 2013 Land Acquisition Act Now at last we have the GST on the law books It has taken 15 years of futile debate to get it on the books Is it safe to assume that this will now reinvigorate the growth trajectory of the Modi government Even more will the passage of GST convince the rest of the political parties that rapid growth is a win-win strategy and the only way India can move from mere entitlements to decent incomes The problem remains that politicians do not believe in growth They prefer low growth which then allows them to grant reservations and subsidies This is what the UPA-II did best It is not that China is a dictatorship and India a democracy It is just that even with the BJP/ NDA government people would rather debate cow protection than ways of eradicating poverty Much remains to be done The Ganga has to be cleaned up Swachh Bharat would boost health The Railways have to be transformed with

12:56 am To careful observers the possibility of self-destruction by the Janata was evident even when it was being applauded for having ended the nightmare of the Emergency and restored democracy Source: CR Sasikumar Related News In its determination to politically destroy Indira Gandhi the party succeeded in hastening her return to power It was on a tidal wave of goodwill that the newly formed Janata Party came to power after defeating Indira Gandhi humiliatingly in the post-Emergency polls in 1977 Indeed there was no dearth of Janata’s jubilant supporters that hailed the changeover as a “revolution by the ballot-box” If really so then it must be the only revolution to have been devoured by its children To careful observers of the scene the possibility of self-destruction by the Janata was evident even when it was being applauded for having ended the nightmare of the Emergency and restored democracy A glaring sign of the shape of things to come was a triangular strife within the victorious party over who should lead the government Charan Singh a former Congress chief minister of the politically key state of Uttar Pradesh and leader of a caste-based party of farmers argued that since the Janata had won in the northern part of India he should be the obvious choice for prime minister Jagjivan Ram disputed this and was equally adamant about his claim After all he had been a senior member of the cabinets of both Jawaharlal Nehru and Gandhi and was the tallest leader of the Scheduled Castes at one time called Untouchables and now Dalits or “the oppressed” It was his resignation from Gandhi’s government and the Congress he said that had tipped the electoral scales decisively against her And then there was Morarji Desai who had twice missed becoming prime minister Since the squabbling trio could not agree it was decided to leave the choice to the two grand old men behind the Janata — Jayaprakash Narayan better known as JP and Acharya JB Kripalani They settled for Desai Singh was given the powerful ministry of home affairs Jagjivan Ram accepted the important portfolio of defence after a show of reluctance External affairs went to Atal Bihari Vajpayee the leader of the Jana Sangh which later morphed into the present-day BJP The fiery socialist and arch-enemy of Gandhi George Fernandes was given charge of industries After this all the Janata men went to the Mahatma’s Samadhi to take the oath to “remain united always” No solemn pledge has ever been broken so speedily and brazenly as this was Both at the Centre and in the states where the Janata was in power factional fights and implacable personal hatreds flourished Since the hurriedly cobbled combination of four opposition parties was united only on ousting Gandhi and nothing else there was ideological mishmash on almost every policy issue While disagreeing on practically everything else all sections of the Janata were united in wanting to award Gandhi exemplary punishment for her “crime” of imposing the Emergency But here too there were differences on what exactly to do Desai’s refrain was that the law should be “allowed to take its course” Singh loathed this and demanded a “Nuremberg-type trial” of the former prime minister He refused to accept the legal advice that there was no provision for such a trial in the Constitution and jurisprudence He had the support of 220 of the 302 Janata MPs who had no legislative experience but had spent the 19 months of the Emergency in jail Even so the Janata ultimately decided to appoint no fewer than eight commissions of inquiry against Gandhi Of these the most important and with the widest remit was the Shah Commission headed by JC Shah a former chief justice of India From the word go it became a cross between a US Congressional inquiry and a Chinese people’s court In the overcrowded courtroom all evidence against Gandhi — including that from her former ministers who were earlier her sycophants — was cheered wildly Any rare remark in her favour was ignored or booed For a certain length of time this seemed all right and was even popular But because it droned on and on it first became boring and then counter-productive People started saying that instead of prosecuting Gandhi the Janata was “persecuting” her At that time one of the eight commissions was investigating the charge against her of having “stolen” some chickens from the government guesthouse in a northeastern state As eminent journalist and author Arun Shourie totally opposed to Gandhi wrote “by the time the Shah Commission’s report was submitted it had become an embarrassment for the Janata not for her” This indeed was the greatest irony in the rather short life-story of the Janata Party It was determined to destroy Gandhi politically forever It succeeded instead in helping indeed hastening her spectacular return to power How this happened is a long and complex story that I will summarise in this and the next instalment of “Rear View” Too many wrong things had happened during the Janata raj that robbed it of its popularity There was an increase in lawlessness and people were fed up with soaring prices However the most heartrending development was a shocking increase in atrocities against Dalits These were by no means unknown during Gandhi’s reign But the sudden increase in their frequency and the escalation of the savagery were phenomenal obviously because the “intermediate castes” the Janata’s power base were vastly more hostile to the Dalits than the “forward castes” The Dalits were agitating in various parts of the country but the atrocity that brought immeasurable shame on the Janata was the one at a remote Bihar village named Belchi where nine Dalits were burnt alive and many Dalit women raped Why For Indira Gandhi hitherto shell-shocked and politically inactive decided to go there Unable to drive through the massive slush on the route she asked for and got a lift on the back of an elephant that a villager was leading somewhere The victims of the barbarity gave a tremendous welcome to the only political leader who had bothered to come to them to offer sympathy and support Her elephant-ride to Belchi blackened the Janata’s face It also became her first step on the comeback trail The writer is a Delhi-based political commentator For all the latest Opinion News

File Top News The Mira-Bhayander stretch will soon get a police commissionerate of its own Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis announced on Wednesday Urban areas between the Mira Road and Virar stretch are currently policed by the Thane (rural) police In a meeting on Wednesday afternoon at Sahyadri guest house to discuss issues pertaining to the Mira-Bhayander stretch the CM announced that a police commissioner’s office will soon come up in the region along with an independent tehsil office The call centre scam unearthed earlier this year involving duping of American citizens was run from offices in this stretch Even though a fast-developing urban stretch the region has been policed in “rural ways” With the Thane (rural) police facing a shortage of manpower there are issues such as uneven distribution of police personnel The CM’s announcement was welcomed by residents as well as the overburdened police personnel “The region should have got a commisionerate long ago However it remained neglected for decades and became a safe haven for criminals The recent IRS call centre scam and other criminal activities that hit the headlines finally made the government take this move We welcome this move” said Ramannah Shetty of Mira Road a social activist Currently the Thane (rural) police jurisdiction that extends from Mira Road just to the north of Mumbai to distant Murbad — around 100 km north-east of Mumbai — with 37 police stations under it is sandwiched between the Mumbai police commissionerate comprising over 90 police stations and Thane commissionerate to its east with 35 police stations A police commissionerate is headed by a police commissioner an IPS officer who also has powers of an ‘executive magistrate’ which in a district rests with an IAS officer ideally a district collector In case of Mira-Bhayander the superintendant of police has to consult the collector before taking a decision for a law and order problem The Thane (rural) police sent its proposal to the state government three months ago for the district to be made into a police commissionerate After Palghar district was carved out of Thane rural 60% of the police strength was diverted to Palghar leaving Thane rural with only 2300 personnel “Population is growing rapidly in the district and we are facing a severe staff crunch” said a senior police official Once a commissionerate is formed the officer added more personnel can be recruited “We will have 200-250 policemen and women in each police station and other departments which function in a police commissionerate will also be operational” the officer said A blend of urban rural coastal and industrial areas the Mira Road sub-division has six police stations— Bhayandar Navghar Uttan Mira Road Kashimira and Naya Nagar With an average of 2500 crimes registered each year the twin-city’s rapid development as compared to other regions in the district has put immense pressure on available resources The move for a police commissionerate had gained ground given the increasing law and order as well as crime control challenges police have been facing However stressing the urgency on having an independent commisionerate for Mira-Bhayander local legislator Narendra Mehta said “Going by the geographical location of both the cities (Mira-Bhayandar and Vasai-Virar) a unified commissionerate is not viable Moreover both the regions are growing by leaps and bounds which will indisputably necessitate a split in the near future It is better to set up individual units” Inputs by Srinath Rao For all the latest Mumbai News
