Top NewsWritten by Surjit S Bhalla | Published: June 13 2015 12:00 am The BJP is possibly worse than the UPA on tax terrorism Related News There is an ill wind blowing And its tune is something like this: No matter where you look India under Narendra Modi is not much different than India during the last years of the UPA How credible is this appraisal Not very I will document 10 areas in which the India of today is substantially different from the India of yesterday But before I do that let me list two important areas in which the BJP’s performance is actually worse than even Sonia Gandhi could manage The previous 10 years had precious little to do with the intellectual qualities or policy direction of economist Manmohan Singh or for that matter lawyer P Chidambaram They had everything to do with the welfare state and the populist ideas of Sonia Gandhi Further confirmation of this is the fact that unflattered by the humiliating and extraordinary loss of the Congress in the 2014 elections the heir apparent Rahul Gandhi not only continues in the same vein as his mother but is trying to outdo her with demagogic populism The BJP is possibly worse than the UPA on tax terrorism I have yet to meet anyone with an adequate explanation of why it pursued tax terrorism through the MAT notices to FIIs Chidambaram is absolutely right when he states that with a simple majority in the Lok Sabha the Modi government could easily repeal this obnoxious law The second area in which life is worse under the BJP is non-economic Apart from the unwarranted proclamation that all Indians must be Hindus until death do us part there are the negative vibes emanating mostly from Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh Recommending that the best place for women is on the delivery bed banning comedy and beef consumption the preservation of cows at all costs (how holy is it to starve a cow to death) — what is going on Two explanations: First there is the BJP Cow Party (similarity to the US Republican Tea Party is not coincidental) whose sole purpose is to take revenge on Modi for being the BJP’s leader rather than the post being filled by one of their own The second explanation is that the two chief ministers Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Devendra Fadnavis may be planning a long-run (cow) campaign to be the alternative to Modi In this regard they are no different than Rahul Gandhi in completely misjudging history and the mood of the electorate Otherwise India has changed substantially The biggest lie is that the BJP had little role in bringing down inflation that this was only because of the fortuitous decline in oil prices A simple empirical fact that disproves this conjecture: Even the most die-hard Congress apologist will concede that price behaviour before September 2014 had nothing to do with the subsequent decline in the price of oil For the first nine months of 2014 consumer price inflation was only 5 per cent per annum; for the first nine months of 2013 it was 93 per cent But the smartest girl in the Congress class states that this is on the basis of seasonally adjusted data And you know such data is tricky But inflation as measured by GDP data for the agricultural sector the source of considerable price-rise over the last decade is conventional and not tricky For the first nine months of 2013 agricultural inflation (read food inflation) was 97 per cent; in 2014 it was just 51 per cent The 2014 election campaign was fought on issues of inflation corruption and growth Again even the most rabid Congressman will admit that corruption at the highest levels (ministers) has been substantially reduced if not eliminated There are no financial scams today just scams that have to do with politicians overstating their level of education Regarding growth most indicators are showing improvement Conventionally measured year-on-year IIP growth registered 21 per cent in March 2015 somewhat better than the minus 05 per cent of March 2013 The new GDP data shows that growth is accelerating by at least 05 percentage points over the previous year But the greatest change brought about by the Modi government is the beginning of the change in the mindset of the Indian electorate Making profit and creating jobs are no longer considered the work of the devil Labour laws are set to be changed in a big way and the Neanderthal land acquisition law passed by the Congress is set to be dumped All these changes have to do with economic freedom There is no example in history of an increased dose of economic freedom not leading to accelerated growth We are just witnessing the beginning of major positive change in India So please let us not lie and claim that the more things change the more they remain the same This time it is different The writer is contributing editor

makers of Hrithik Roshan starrer Kaabil has been approached by 20th Century Fox for procuring the film’s remake rights Kaabil which revolves around a blind man who sets out to avenge the rape of his wife was produced by Hrithik’s father Rakesh Roshan and also starred Yami Gautam in the lead role Talking about the latest development Kaabil director Sanjay Gupta told Mid-day “It’s true that Fox through Tomas Jegeus has approached Hrithik Even though the developments are too premature to talk about at this moment it is an honour for the team What is also exciting is that Kaabil has been declared the best film of (the first half of) 2017 via an online poll So it’s a double win for us” Kaabil had received mixed reviews but was loved by audiences And even though it was released alongside Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees it had a decent box office collection On being asked about the Hollywood remake Rakesh Roshan said “The screenplay was hard-hitting and the drama gripping It would make for a wonderful Hollywood adaptation given that it has all the necessary emotions It struck gold at the box-office because it was about a visually-impaired lover seeking revenge” Hrithik was also

semantic tightrope on Thursday to assure supporters it had not climbed down and sacrificed national pride by requesting an extension of euro zone financial support while seeking to satisfy its creditors Government officials stressed their proposal to extend a loan agreement with the euro zone did not mean reneging on an oft-repeated pledge to scrap a hated bailout programme Shortly after Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis submitted a letter in which Greece made concessions in an attempt to secure funding and avoid bankruptcy officials in Athens insisted they were not performing a U-turn "The government true to its commitments never asked for an extension to the bailout" a government official said emphasising that the letter spoke of a humanitarian crisis in Greece and efforts to secure debt reduction and growth "We submitted a proposal that respects the (electoral) verdict of the public champions the dignity of society and at the same time can be accepted by our partners" Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras elected on Jan 25 has made emotional pledges that the bailout and the "troika" of EU IMF and European Central Bank inspectors overseeing it "died" the day his government took office However the letter seen by Reuters showed Greece recognises the existing EU/IMF programme as the legally binding framework for the next six months and accepts supervision by the European Commission the ECB and the IMF The document avoided the words "memorandum" or "programme" referring obliquely to the "current arrangement" It mentioned the Commission ECB and IMF only as "the institutions" The Syriza-affiliated Avgi newspaper highlighted on its website that a key document setting out the bailout conditions the "memorandum of understanding" was not mentioned in the Greek proposal submitted to the euro zone "Government circles clarified that the Master Financial Assistance Facility Agreement has nothing to do with the link between the financial agreement and bailout terms" the paper said referring to the technical name of the loan agreement Germany’s finance ministry rejected the Greek proposal for precisely that reason setting the stage for tough negotations among finance ministers on Friday in which Athens may be forced to climb down further NO FIG LEAF The government’s efforts to manage its message appear to be working so far with Greeks proud of what they see as leaders finally standing tall instead of taking orders from Berlin "With the public the government has won in terms of resonance sympathy and credibility This is not going to change significantly despite the fact that it has rowed back on many of its positions" said Costas Panagopoulos head of Alco pollsters "People support the government in its efforts to negotiate something better and this support is strong but everything will depend on the result" So far the left wing of Syriza – which contains a range of elements from social democrats to Greens Marxists and former Communists – has not openly disagreed with the concessions Ordinary Greeks who have overhelmingly supported Tsipras’ hardline stance at euro zone meetings in the past two weeks despite a looming financial crisis also appeared to back the government’s changing position "This isn’t a U-turn" said Panagiotis Foradis a 27-year old shop assistant "This is a good move because the government is laying down its own conditions and opposes the bailout but at the same time does not want to clash with the Eurogroup" The main howls of protest came from opposition figures who argued that despite Tsipras’s bravado he had been humiliated and achieved little in return Centre-left Pasok leader Evangelos Venizelos whose party helped implement the bailout said Tsipras had wasted time for little gain "After losing precious time in supposedly tough negotiation for internal consumption the government has . asked for an extension of the loan agreement that is identical to the memorandum and the bailout programme" he said Giorgos Kyrtsos a member of the European Parliament for the conservative New Democracy party mocked the government for its proposal that was then rejected by Germany "They got crafty with their spin at the expense of the Germans and Berlin is now asking them for a record adjustment without a fig leaf" he tweeted (Additional reporting by Renee Maltezou editing by Deepa

Taking a strong view of the recent deaths of manual scavengers Delhi High Court on Monday directed the heads of all civic bodies in the national capital to be present before it on September 18 to explain how such activity was going on despite being prohibited under the law A bench of Justices S Ravindra Bhat and Sunil Gaur was informed by amicus curiae Sanjay Poddar that in little over a month 10 persons have died in four incidents while cleaning sewers in the national capital without any protective gear or safety measures in place All of them had suffocated to death due to the toxic fumes in the sewer lines The court thereafter sought the presence of the Commissioners of the three municipal corporations the heads of Delhi Jal Board Public Works Department Delhi Cantonment Board the New Delhi Municipal Council and the Divisional Railway Manager of Northern Railway It directed the Delhi government to immediately pay the compensation of Rs 10 lakh per person as provided under the rules and listed the matter for a compliance report on September 18 It also directed the District Magistrates to furnish their enquiry reports in each of the incidents The court said they have to inform it about who were the officials responsible and for whose failure to perform duty had led to these incidents which have claimed 10 lives The bench also wondered where the manual scavengers were coming from when the surveys undertaken by the municipal bodies showed no persons were engaged in such activities It directed the heads of the various authorities to bring with them the relevant records indicating the number of persons engaged directly or indirectly through contractors in the work of manual scavenging or those exposed to hazardous environments which are prohibited under the law The court said the records should contain the details of the works the contractors engaged and the number of employees in each case The officials also have to inform the court about the existing procedure for cleaning sewers and septic tanks The court was hearing of a PIL filed in 2007 for the rehabilitation of manual scavengers It had earlier termed as “disgraceful” the existence of manual scavenging in the city despite a law prohibiting such a practice and had said “We are a country of poor people butnot for the poor people” It is “ridiculous and shocking” the court had observed when informed by the Delhi State Legal Services Authority (DSLSA) that one of the manual scavengers was a “graduate” The DSLSA in an interim report had said that there were manual scavengers in the national capital
