Steve O’Keefe emerges as an unlikely hero for?within four days. 2016 5:25 am On July 11 morning, For two years,the Congress has been on an obstructionist path and it will not be unfair to state that a considerable portion of the Western elite English media is extraordinarily sympathetic to the Congress There are historical reasons for this sympathy — the “liberal” media and the pseudo-liberal Congress have been allies since Independence — and the alliance has been cemented via a common left-of-centre economic ideology This can be easily deduced from the economic icons of the Congress and their intellectual comrades — Jawaharlal Nehru and Amartya Sen Share This Article Related Article One of the reasons why the Congress lost so big in 2014 was that India has changed from being a poor economy to a non-poor emerging-middle-class and middle-class society That India was non-poor at the time of the 2014 election is easily established by noting that according to NSS data for 2011-12 and the Tendulkar absolute poverty line (near identical to the PPP $19 per person per day World Bank poverty line) the poor in India accounted for only 12 per cent of the population Add to this the fact that the NSS estimate of average consumption in India relative to average per capita consumption as revealed by the national accounts (old GDP data) was less than 50 per cent If for the poor under-reporting is even half that for the non-poor then absolute poverty in India in 2011-12 was less than 100 million or less than 8 per cent of the population A tragically high number but a considerably less potent political force The numbers and the force have been taken over by the emerging middle class (EMC) and the middle class India has changed from a poor to a middle-income non-poor society which is the biggest transformation it has seen in its history and something that is crucial to understand for intellectuals policymakers and politicians So while the Sonia Gandhi-led Congress was debating about poverty being equal to 800 million in 2013 (two-thirds of the population a la the food security act) the BJP under Narendra Modi was championing the cause of the middle classes (jobs growth development) and winning As part of this transformation it is inevitable that there will be elements within the EMC whose social and political ideology is not conducive to development freedom or true liberal values Hence the emphasis on illiberal views like “ghar wapsi” “love jihad” anti-Muslim propaganda and condemnation of illiberal students But lest we pine for the old liberal order just a few reminders: The old naam-ke-waste liberals did not support economic freedom in any form and pandered to religious unfreedom by not supporting a common civil code What makes the old liberal attitudes particularly nauseating is that they supported the suppression of freedom for women particularly Muslim women Further the old liberal Congress order was never for economic freedom and in this they were ably supported by the left large elements of the UPA and large elements of the regressive EMC housed in the BJP Let us call the latter without any exaggeration the BJP’s very own home-grown Tea Party Thus while the Congress has been obstructionist the BJP Tea Party has been more than happy to accommodate the obstruction Just note the unrelenting sequence of events in this battle between the new wannabe elite and the old established elite This especially peaks around election time and then dies soon after However given that we have a series of state elections the peaks and valleys are frequent But since the same nonsense will not have the same appeal the peaks are punctuated by different issues — “ghar wapsi” student suicide and now student demonstrations Each issue is trumpeted by the media as scaling new heights of intolerance Part of the Congress’s policy has been (and on this one must credit them with devilish intelligence): Provoke the BJP and lumpen Tea Party elements will be honour-bound to react with negative absurdity And the chain reaction will lead to the BJP being broadly perceived as intolerant anti-secular anti-Muslim and anti-everything-but-upper-caste-Hindu A perusal of the newspapers TV discussions learned accounts from domestic and foreign “intellectuals” strongly indicates that this Sonia Gandhi-led Congress and liberal-left strategy has succeeded beyond all expectations Except now it seems that the BJP has finally become wiser or more accurately less stupid Over the last six weeks or so the top leadership of the BJP has enforced much-needed restraint on lumpen Tea Party elements When via utter and extreme stupidity the BJP top brass came in with a sledgehammer to dislodge Kanhaiya the old-style Tea Party demanded through its agent Kuldeep Varshney a member of the BJP’s youth wing: “I will award Rs 5 lakh to the person who [will] cut off Kanhaiya’s tongue” Hours after he said this he was expelled for six years In earlier times this hatred would have been ignored by the BJP leadership ifnot rewarded Further two recent incidents reinforce the belief that the BJP may have finally learnt its lessons First in beefy Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis’s own assembly a BJP MLA Bhimrao Dhonde questioned the anti-poor credentials of the BJP’s beef ban by protesting “Why should you snatch away the poor’s meal” Possibly shocked by these liberal developments the Congress severely upped the scale of its provocation A senior member of the party the leader of the Congress in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad taunted the BJP by likening its political associate (and some say its godfather) the RSS to the dreaded Islamic State “So we oppose organisations like ISIS the way we oppose RSS If those among us in Islam too do wrong things they are no way less than RSS” Azad thundered Just weigh the import of this statement by weighing in with the counterfactual — what would the Congress have done either today or when they were in control in 2004-14 if their leader Indira Gandhi had been likened to the IS Clearly there would have been a furore as there should be; but why is there no fury in the English media about this most irresponsible and “fascist” statement uttered by a Congress leader And now possibly the last straw and the one that will proverbially break the back of the Congress’s obstruction movement In a pointed reference to the Congress’s disruptive tactics Modi said the following: “We should not engage in irrelevant issues We should work on our agenda Our rivals will try that we remain engaged in irrelevant issues and the government’s work is not discussed among the people We should move ahead with one mantra: Vikas vikas vikas This is the answer to our country’s all problems and we are working in this direction” If the BJP stresses both social harmony and vikas what can the political opposition do to regain relevance The writer is contributing editor ‘The Indian

the much-awaited inspection of the Victorian and Art Deco district around Oval Maidan on Friday there is growing disagreement between residents of Marine Drive over the possible world heritage tag for the area that the state is actively pursuing While a section of residents are still opposing the new set of guidelines for redevelopment of properties finalised by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation a faction fear that the accreditation of being a World Heritage site will not allow them to redevelop their buildings Those in favour of redevelopment said the representation to the Bombay High Court as well as the Supreme Court by the Federation of Churchgate Residents had been made without their knowledge or consent Kanwal Shahpuri a resident of Hari Niwas on C Road said “The area was developed back in the 1950s and many of the buildings are in dire need of redevelopment The heritage status from UNESCO will not allow re-development The state government never consulted us when they applied for the UNESCO heritage status” Shahpuri added that he has formed a social media group and more than 400 other residents have come together to find a way to apply for redevelopment of their buildings While the section of residents including Ashok Rao president of the Federation of Churchgate Residents have opposed the guidelines in the Supreme Court the other faction of residents have pinned their hopes on guidelines drafted by the BMC These guidelines on ‘Special Permissions to Re-development projects in the Marine Drive precinct’ were submitted last month in the form of an additional affidavit in response to a Special Leave Petition filed by the owner of the Vasant Sagar building back in 2014 Under the new guidelines the height of the front row buildings along Marine Drive may be raised from the existing limit of 24 metres to 32 metres while the row of buildings behind that may be raised from 24 metres to 58 metres Of the other two zones in Marine Drive the draft guidelines propose that the height of the Gymkhana zone be increased from 11-14 metres to 24 metres and of Chowpatty zone be increased from 21 metres to 32 metres Shahpuri added that he and other residents have recently approached the local BJP MLA Raj Purohit “We had discussed our plans with Purohit and he has promised us that he will organise a discussion with Municipal Commissioner Ajoy Mehta Rao and his federation does not represent us and the opinion of majority of the residents has to count” he said Another resident and advocate Ashok Goel who is a resident of Aryan Mahal located on C Road added that his building is 60 years old and is in need of re-development “We are only able to take up patch-up repairs which is only a temporary solution and we should have the right to re-develop the building There is an ongoing legal case on this issue and we will have to consult all other residents before taking a legal step forward” he said Defending his stand Rao said that those who are opposing the UNESCO’s heritage status have never approached him or other members of the Federation “We are not against re-development of the buildings My fight has always been with Vasant Sagar Besides if there is a requirement they can go underground instead of increasing the height of the building Our stand is to protect the Art Deco nature of the precinct” he said Rao added that all the residents who are opposing the heritage tag are not owners of the flats but tenants of buildings who have been living in the buildings at a nominal rent [email protected] For all the latest Mumbai

political parties and civil society in Tamil Nadu — has been a critical factor in the shaping of India-Sri Lanka ties The Sri Lankan Tamil community’s battle for political rights and the plight of Indian fishermen in Lankan jails have a resonance in the Tamil street Hence the invoking of the president’s executive powers to issue the pardon could be seen as an attempt on the part of the Mahinda Rajapaksa administration to reach out to Tamils in India Having said that a radical change in Tamil opinion is unlikely in the absence of some closure on the charges of war crimes levelled at Colombo Over the years the issue of the arrests of Indian fishermen has got increasingly entangled with the Tamil question but it deserves to be considered and addressed separately At the core of the fishermen issue — Indian trawlers and crew have been held by the Sri Lankan navy for fishing in their waters — is the livelihood of people dependent on fisheries and the depleting stock in the seas off the Tamil Nadu coast The spurt in the number of trawlers in the past two decades has resulted in overfishing in Indian waters and the fishermen now trespass into Lankan waters for a catch Only an overhaul of the fisheries operations in Rameswaram would help in the long term Meanwhile New Delhi and Colombo should establish a mechanism to facilitate the speedy release of fishermen and boats taken into custody by their respective navies when they by accident or choice cross the maritime boundary Incidentally both countries already have an agreement in place for the transfer of convicted prisoners New Delhi needs to work closely with Colombo to safeguard its own national interest especially in the context of increased Chinese presence in the region Addressing the fishermen issue
