around a threatened US aid cut to Palestinians stopping short of backing a funding halt as he repeated calls for a UN agency that helps Palestinian refugees to be dismantled Netanyahu’s public comments appeared to reflect a desire to show support for a major ally but also concern that choking off funds would deepen Palestinian hardship and could put Israel and militants on a course for war With Palestinians seething over US president Donald Trump’s recognition last month of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital he threatened on Tuesday to withhold aid money accusing them of being “no longer willing to talk peace” On Friday in a report denied by a State Department official the Axios news site said Washington had frozen $125 million in funding for UNRWA The UN agency founded in 1949 to aid Palestinian refugees is a main provider of educational and health services in the Gaza Strip Netanyahu said UNRWA was “an organisation that perpetuates the Palestinian problem” “It also enshrines the narrative of the so-called ‘right of return’ Therefore UNRWA should pass from the world” he told a weekly cabinet meeting Israel prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu AP Netanyahu made almost identical comments about dismantling UNRWA in June— a message he said at the time he had conveyed to the US ambassador to the United Nations Praising Trump’s “critical approach” on the aid issue Netanyahu steered clear of advocating a suspension of funding for the Palestinians He said UN money for them should be transferred gradually to its global refugee agency UNHCR “with clear criteria for supporting genuine refugees and not fictitious ones as is happening today under UNRWA” Chris Gunness an UNRWA spokesman said the refugee crisis was being perpetuated by “failure of the parties to deal with the issue.” “UNRWA is mandated by the General Assembly to continue with its services until a just and lasting solution is found for the Palestine refugees” Gunness said in a statement Palestinian officials have said Trump’s declaration on Jerusalem overturning decades of U policy meant he could not serve as an honest broker in peace negotiations that Washington has been trying to revive and they condemned his remarks on a funding halt as blackmail Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of a state they seek to establish in the West Bank and Gaza Strip The United States is the largest donor to UNRWA with a pledge of nearly $370 million as of 2016 according to the organisation’s website Gunness said the agency had not been “informed directly of a formal decision either way by the US administration” on cuts In addition to its services in Gaza UNRWA operates in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and in Jordan Syria and Lebanon Written by Yubaraj Ghimire | Published: August 26

Leninist (CPN-UML) as the basis of forming the coalition government in March Koirala said the president and vice president should not seek parliamentary endorsement for their continuation as it violates the letter and spirit of the constitution Koirala’s stance is fraught with the risk of bringing many agreements especially after the political change of 2006 under review and subjecting them to selective rejection Political parties have signed one or another agreement that clearly undermines the provisions of the existing constitution This political confusion is inching towards a deadlock as evident in Sunday’s fresh crisis The Unified Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (UCPN-M) walked out of a meeting hosted by Koirala in which the Nepali Congress (NC) and the UML were present It was called to explore the possibility of the three parties taking a common stand on contentious issues like federalism and governance which have blocked efforts to deliver the constitution UCPN-M leader Prachanda wanted a “high-level” political committee (HLPC) headed by himself to explore the matter But the NC and UML were hesitant about bestowing such responsibility on a party relegated to the third position in the Constituent Assembly (CA) and showing signs that it is headed for another split “Without the HLPC we cannot move forward And if we don’t move forward that will be my defeat and a political victory of Mohan Baidya Kiran who wants an extra-CA body to make the constitution” said Prachanda Baidya had led the split in the UCPN-M in 2012 and his Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (CPN-M) has been demanding the CA’s dissolution and an “all-forces initiative to draft the new constitution” The total political fragmentation or the absence of a point of convergence makes the resolution of the contentious issues by next week and the finalisation of the draft constitution by the January 22 deadline look difficult if not impossible The NC and UML now insist that the country cannot afford more provinces and their number should not exceed seven against the Maoist insistence on the 11-province formula of the first CA Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s clear message to leaders of Nepal’s Terai area comprising 23 of the 75 districts along the Indian border that India stood for a well-integrated Nepal and that Delhi would not even remotely support movements to weaken a neighbour was seen as a reversal of the UPA’s Nepal policy But now some leaders not happy with Modi’s approach are preparing to raise the “ek madhes ek pradesh” demand and begin a violent movement

session (Representational) Related News Taking a serious view of the promotion of 15 IAS officers to the post of additional chief secretary (ACS) in the Haryana Government in the pay grade of chief secretary without approval from the Centre during the past few years state Assembly’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) has sought a report from the state government The PAC consisting of nine MLAs is headed by Panchkula BJP MLA Gian Chand Gupta A member of the committee told The Indian Express Tuesday that the PAC in a recent meeting had asked Chief Secretary DS Dhesi to send a report on these promotions to the committee within three months The member said that the PAC had taken the action on the basis of a report of the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) which in 2014 had pointed out that “the appointments were made without constituting the Screening Committee resulting in irregular expenditure of Rs 537 crore” Sources say this extra expenditure was caused because of the difference in the salary allowances and facilities of additional chief secretaries and principal secretaries When the issue was raised by the CAG in January 2014 there were only 12 IAS officers who had been promoted to the post of additional chief secretary (ACS) from principal secretary against the sanctioned strength of three But by now 21 officers have been promoted to the post of ACS against the sanctioned strength of three Two of these 21 ACS level officers have already retired “Apart from these three officers the government can also promote three more IAS officers to the post of ACS as ex-cadre officers We have asked the Chief Secretary why sanction was not taken before appointing 15 officers as ACS” said another member of the committee According to the documents accessed by The Indian Express the then chief secretary had informed the CAG auditors in January 2014 that “there was very less financial implication in promoting the officers to the additional chief secretary’s (ACS) grade as all of them had reached the maximum of their pay scales; as such total expenditure of their pay and allowances amounting to Rs 537 crore may not be treated as irregular” The chief secretary had also told the auditors that “this time (for promotions to be made in 2014) a screening committee was constituted headed by the chief secretary and an additional secretary-level officer from GOI was also present in the meeting” Notably the CS had also stated that “the State Government would continue to operate these posts of ACSs in future also due to the requirement of work and this was being done by almost all the states” However the CAG auditors said “The contention of the CS was not acceptable as the appointment of excess posts as against the prescribed strength was irregular and against the instructions of GOI (Govt of India)… the expenditure on the pay and allowances was treated as irregular because officers were allowed chief secretary’s grade in contravention to the rules and GOI instructions” Dhesi did not respond to the phone call and text message sent on his mobile For all the latest Chandigarh News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by

report on land acquisition released this May does not want the state-led dominant domain principle extended to public-private partnerships and private sector projects It displays faith in eminent domainland use and district planningwhere the market is supposed to play a role thats what the land record business was all about Howeverthere are two problems with this Involving the market is finebut there could be the old person who will not let her land go when everybody else has agreed and that may stall a school or a road So the state may need to play a role after allin a classic public policy expenditure sense Secondwhen land prices go up as development takes placewhat market will remain It was suggested that local groups be consulted orbetter stillform cooperatives or producer companies of small landholders who could be part of the negotiation That waythere would be an opportunity for landholders to share in future benefits The standing committee is silent on the 80 per cent affected clause in the billwhich says that if a company gets 80 per cent of its land needs from the bazaarthe state may intervene to help it acquire the balance But that is hardly an argument for the draconian powers for the state that some ministers have been quoted as demanding That state did not aid growththe poor or the adivasis The market is reliableand those who would misuse it can be punished by law In the special cases of eminent domain as defined abovethe state must have some power Giving the state all the power it wants is inconsistent with the main thrust of the reporthoweverand there is an implied rebuff to the concept of equity-sharing between sellers and buyers One senior bureaucrat attempted to implement this for land purchased for industrial estates The farmers were to get a first pricebut their producer company could get contract work later andperhapsequity in future price increases of the estates assets He was transferred out The standing committeethoughwould make him irrelevant The company affairs ministry has essentially killed the producer company legislation It has argued that the second amendment to the Companies Bill 2002 will only be an addendum until the government changes its mind The consultations proposed for local bodies and farmers groups whitewash the issues A googly can be ruled out If everybody can make money from scarcitythen the farmer getting his first chance should not be grudged his share Moralising on that is hypocritical It is remarkablemoreoverthat the question of land acquisition keeps coming back Each time it doesno lessons seem to have been learnt from experience Over the last 20 yearsat least four issues I thought resolved have cropped up again Firsttenancy has increased in a big way but in many areasthe middle farmer was leasing land through reverse tenancy This was mostly unrecordedsince tenancy is officially frowned upon and the state keeps up the mirage that it provides land to the tiller whothereforecannot be a tenant Two corollaries were known Some states issued pattas and some set up ICT-based systems for instantaneous service In tribal areasland rights were primarily historical and unrecordedwhich meant that the poor adivasi could be exploited (Paradoxicallythe term adivasi means original settler) BN Yugandhar and BK Sinhaamong othershave left supporting evidence Secondin the 1990swe saw real pressure on agricultural land Earlier2 per cent or less of the land would be appropriated for non-agricultural use in a decade Nowsome states reach that figure in a year The urban land ceiling act was one of the worst pieces of legislation we have hadand the poor got little from italthough babus and land racketeers made fortunes in implementing this socialist policy With the reform of the 1990swe actually gave up the concept of land use planning Land use boards and high level committees never met As Kirit Parikh wrote in his excellent history of plan modellingthe government and the planners do not believe in perspective planning anymore The last three documents from Yojana Ayog stayed scrupulously away from a perspective chapter Now both the Planning Commission and the Union budgetwhile suggesting plan schemesalso want the concept of plan schemes and the resources allocated to them to be examined That doesnt provide the ideal background for the state to play a dominant role in the land market Thirdearlier concepts of unearned incomes or renter surpluses have been given up In the global bazaarthe border price is the mantra Fourthpolicymakers are ignoring the population movements taking place The farmer was going to the bazaar in small and big townsand there were calls for action to improve small townsnot least by calling them towns when
