projects and for getting involved in Nepal’s internal politics On Nepal Modi has much to be satisfied about But the challenges begin now Prime Minister Narendra Modi made every effort to be seen as Nepal’s best friend — a commoner a pilgrim the guardian of a Nepali in need and less of a prime minister of a big country By the time he left Nepal he had won the hearts and minds of the Nepalese imprinting deeply the idea that he alone has the will and ability to transform Nepal into a prosperous country His repeated emphasis on India’s respect for Nepal’s sovereignty and the message that missed opportunities of the past and failed promises should not act as speed-breakers in “our future journey to prosperity together” were perhaps aimed at looking ahead at the future not harping on the past Modi knew that all these personalities he projected would consolidate his image and goodwill in a country where India is perceived as a neighbour with a big gap between promise and delivery — and of late a neighbour that involves itself more in Nepal’s internal politics and pursues a policy of “divide and rule” Modi brought along with him Jeet Bahadur Saru Magar — a Nepali boy that he had a chance meeting with in Ahmedabad about 16 years ago and adopted — ostensibly to “reunite” him with his family that was discovered two years ago at Modi’s initiative Jeet had come to Nepal two years ago soon after the family was discovered and was in constant touch with them But Modi’s decision to bring Jeet along get his entire family to Kathmandu pose with them for a photo-op and give them gifts generated such publicity that this affair appears to have paid him the biggest dividend of his Nepal visit “Years ago I came here as a pilgrim And anyone who comes to Nepal once will always belong here [sic]” he said in Nepali before he began his extempore speech in the parliament By projecting the image of a benevolent guardian and a devotee of Shiva — from Somnath to Pashupatinath via Vishwanath — he could easily establish a bond with a predominantly Hindu Nepal a country with a potential for religious tourism Jawaharlal Nehru disapproved of then President Rajendra Prasad’s wish to go to the renovation ceremony of the Somnath temple in the early 1950s on the ground that it would set a wrong precedent in a secular country But almost 60 years later Nehru’s successor took pride in offering special worship at the Pashupatinath temple and spending an hour there as a devotee something none of India’s prime ministers before Modi had done That the new Indian prime minister is a commoner and “someone like us” was the general feeling in Nepal Was it all only part of diplomacy Nobody in Nepal seems to believe that at least for now But then Modi the prime minister was much at ease in delivering the messages he wanted to — that Nepali politicians must rise above partisan politics in making the constitution While he sent across the message that India would be happy if Nepal wrote a federal republican constitution he also said “that must bring poor and rich rural and urban hill mountain and Terai together” That was a clear disapproval of the identity-implying caste- and ethnicity-based federalism — a common agenda of the Maoists and Madhesi parties — something India had lent its support to earlier His emphasis was more on linking the country and its people with its diverse geography culture and socioeconomic strata than wedging a divide on caste and ethnic lines He also maintained his silence on whether India wishes Nepal to be a secular or a Hindu nation A quiet warning and praise for Maoists for switching to “Buddha from Yuddha” — from war to peace — also showed that Modi was cautiously optimistic about their contribution to the constitution-writing “The entire world is looking at you Your success will discourage many who believe weapons can bring about change” — the hidden message was more obvious The consequences of Nepal which has already bungled one chance not having a constitution on time would be enormous After all an orderly society guided by a constitution alone will provide the stability that is the pre-requisite for business and investment — Modi’s clear focus The 5600 MW Pancheshwar project which remained stalled for 18 years after the agreement will see its work start within a year He assured the Nepali side that India will not want Nepal’s electricity or power for free: “We will buy it and that alone will change the face of Nepal… We will provide power to you now but 10 years hence you will remove our darkness” he said hinting India will move fast on the implementation of projects now Modi returns to New Delhi with much to be satisfied about But the challenges begin now as the promises enter the delivery phase More than that the hope that Modi has generated will have to confront the image of the Indian government’s bureaucracy and intelligence largely blamed for the poor implementation of past projects and for getting involved in Nepal’s internal politics The bureaucracy will not refute the allegation But it cannot be wished away so easily The challenge lies in getting it to perform as per decisions reached at the political level on both sides Modi’s probation in Nepal begins now [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Reuters | Rio De Janeiro |

squad looks after the 8-km stretch from Bund Garden to Warje Express Archive Top News While thePune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has embarked upon the ambitious project of beautification of the River Mutha—one of the most polluted rivers— and set a patrolling squad in place to protect the river the dedicated squad of 17 ex-servicemen is struggling for its own sustenance with no civic department ready to take the responsibility of supervising their work or being accountable for it The squad which came into existence eight months ago was designated the job of keeping a round-the-clock vigil of the river in different shifts “The squad looks after the 8-km river stretch from Bund Garden to Warje and each team has been given the responsibility of 2 km” said a civic officer However the PMC initiative has failed with no civic department supervising the squad and being accountable for their work In a recent order Municipal Commissioner Kunal Kumar said “The dedicated squad to patrol the river would be reporting to the deputy municipal commissioner and in-charge of land estate department Satish Kulkarni along with in-charge of river development project Srinivas Bonala” When contacted Kulkarni said he was just responsible for coordinating the meetings or any work by various civic departments pertaining to the river’s development “I have to only coordinate and not look into every day working of the squad” he said Share This Article Related Article Watch Video: What’s making news The anti-encroachment department river development project cell and ward offices are connected with

to provide office vehicle for patrolling The security department officer said that the appointment of the squad is done every three months with the roster set for patrolling exercise along the riverbed but the efforts are not yielding expected results “There is no support to the squad from various departments No civic department or officer is taking the responsibility of the squad” he said The squad has been submitting a daily report to the land and estate department ward officer and river development cell as no single officer is taking the responsibility he said adding “There is no one to resolve the problems faced by the squad protecting the river Thus the objective is not getting fulfilled” Earlier it was decided that the ward offices would also carry out necessary infrastructure work for protecting the river which includes the check on drainage being released into river putting up boards warning action against garbage being thrown among others “Neither the ward offices nor any civic department has carried out the work that was needed to protect the river” he added On the other hand the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has started public consultation to prepare a master plan for the river development project that aims to change the river from being polluted to a place that would be integral part of the society The heavy urbanisation in PMC in the last few decades has created pressure on the rivers and the PMC feels the rivers are presently most vulnerable to pollution encroachment flooding and are not accessible to public The Ahmedabad-based HCP Design Planning
