Political Play

A brave move of the new Indian administrator 25 May, 2014
The arrival of the new Indian leader has been sensed across the globe. For the very first time, Indian politics was at the center of discussion in every probable nation. It was overwhelming to notice overseas newspapers and news headlines flooded with the win of BJP, and more precisely, Mr. Narendra Modi.
Plus, the formation of a stable government at the center has boosted the confidence of the global market; hence stakeholders are much more relaxed and aspirant. Though the Modi-led union government will have to prove what was promised during campaigning, the beginning has done a lot. What would you say when you hear an Indian leader calling the head of the government of Pakistan in the swearing-in? The move could have been doubted in case the leader was someone who advocated support on religious lines.

However, the story here is distinct. A leader, who warned the neighboring nation for forbidden acts within the borders of India, is now looking forward to an entirely unlike equation. This has proven a fact that a capable leader can never be predicted. A competent administrator realizes the need of the hour and takes appropriate actions accordingly.

When the past union government comprehended only one way to maintain relations with a not so participative neighboring nation, the new Indian leader has demonstrated that ways shall be devised as per the circumstances. And this is what he meant when he invited the leaders of the governments of all South Asian states to attend his swearing-in.

The foreign secretary has confirmed that the nations have accepted the invitation; however their turnout is not sure. The PM of Pakistan seems to have been dominated by the extremists; however he favors cordial relations with India. Whether or not the leaders visit, India has a win-win situation.

Considerable to note in this context is the fact that despite of numerous official invitations from Pakistan, the former PM, Dr. Manmohan Singh did not even once dared to cross the border. Neither was the former government ready to take a stringent route, nor were the leaders capable to sort things with dialogues. And the same leaders are today viewing the measure of the upcoming PM as forbidden.

The CM of J & K, however, has favored the call and viewed this as a way to building warm relations with a neighboring country which shares closest vibes when talked in terms of culture and history. The game cannot be always played with same old rules. And the new leader has made an endeavor to revise the principles which shall be in the favor of all South Asian nations. Not just Pakistan, cordial relations with all other neighbors are being looked forward to for mutual betterment.

Though funds to Indian corporates flow from European nations, neighboring countries play a key role in sharing of agricultural produce and manufactured goods, which demands healthy associations. The beginning may have appealed many; it would be remarkable to witness what shall be the policy of the new government and the vibrant leader.

You judge a person by his past. Mr Modi during his campaign talked about the Gujarat model of development. Can one say development in Gujarat has been inclusive? Why is it that the Metro line has stopped just before Juhapura in Ahmedabad, dominated by Muslims? You have a gas pipeline which does not pass through Juhapura. Why is Mr Modi opposing pre-matric scholarship to minorities of Gujarat? Why did he bring in legislation making it mandatory for a person who wishes to change his religion to seek the government’s permission? The Governor did not give assent. On the day the results were out, the Supreme Court exonerated all the boys implicated in the Akshardham case. The boys lost 11 precious years of their life, and the apex court criticised the non-application of mind by the home minister of Gujarat and the state government. Doesn’tthis raise anxiety? The boys said the Gujarat police had given them the option of choosing between the Haren Pandya murder case, Godhra and Akshardham. I don’t agree with the view that Atal Behari Vajpayee and L K Advani had reached out to the minorities. How can we forget what happened to Graham Staines? It was when Mr Vajpayee was Prime Minister and Mr Advani was home minister and Lok Sabha member from Gujarat that Gujarat witnessed the 2002 riots. Mr Vajpayee might have asked Mr Modi publicly to follow raj dharma but it was under his nose that everything happened. A draconian law like POTA which was passed during their tenure was used extensively against Muslims, Dalits and tribals. The taste of the pudding is in the eating Sir !
