Editorial

The little dramas in Gujarat

There is a visible unease in BJP in Gujarat. The reasons for the same are

  1. Internal factions
  2. Gujarat developmental mode failed to be inclusive.
  3. Patidar movement and demands for reservations.
  4. Slow down in economy and rise in unemployment.
  5. Demonetisation and Improper implementation of GST.
  6. Sense of being governed from delhi

If BJP losses Gujarat, it can give a new lease of life to opposition and regional politics.

 

All the roads that lead to Kabul.

USA New Afghan Policy is repeatedly stated as a game changer by the President Ghani. The major reason for this is it recommends for a multi dimensional condition based approach for the region. In this, India is seen as an important partner and is expected to expand its development role further and enhance its security profile in Afghanistan. It is the biggest donor of aid to Afghanistan. Indo Afghanistan air corridors, parliamentary building, Zara just delaram highway, Salam dam all are reflection of this.

India’s strategy is

  1. To build the capacities of the Afghanistan as well as of Afghan security forces, enabling them to fight their own battles more effectively.
  2. India wants all peace talks in Afghanistan shall be Afghanistan led and Afghanistan controlled. 

 

Big vision, Hazy detail

Recent visit of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to India was ambitious and he spoke about a road ahead together for next 100 years. Though it is grand in words but poor in specifics. He minced no words on terror safe heavens in Pakistan. He proposed for building an alternative coalition to counter china’s one belt and one road initiative, foundational agreements  as well as aggressive moves in South China Sea. But, geographic realities makes the cooperation between the countries difficult.

While American troops are in Afghanistan, it is difficult for the USA to disengage from Pakistan. Similar for India with china. For it a maritime relationship with USA is desirable, a geographic proximity to china makes a very close alliance with USA difficult. Strategic confusion in USA adds on to this.

 

Paved with Big words

Indian Government has announced an infrastructure project Bharatmala pariyojana with a 7lakh crore budget. Private participation through PPP model appears to be difficult as their revival plan given by Kelkar committee  is not approved by the government.
