on the back of the rural and middle class India voting in its favour Unfortunately very little has been done for farmers as the crucial portfolio of Agriculture and Food Supplies is led by Ministers who are not interested in performance Radha Mohan Singh the Agriculture Minister has not been able to get a handle on his ministry and it is still run by the babus in a manner that they want There has been no change in the functioning of the Ministry and it has squandered the mandate given to the government BJP in is manifesto had promised several things to the farmers including the formation of a farmers market That would allow farmers to bring their produce to urban areas and sell directly to consumers While this was an easy thing to do as it is a well-laid out practice in most countries nothing has been done till date on it A cabinet reshuffle in the Modi government needs to focus on the farmers PTI Even in terms of changing cropping patterns to promote the cultivation of pulses nothing has been done There is a shortfall of almost 5 million tonnes between supply and demand for pulses and it has been growing rapidly every year The problem is not new and the solution is discussed ad-nauseum within the agricultural policy circles The lack of procurement initiative for pulses and the huge focus on the procurement of wheat and rice means that farmers across the country have stopped cultivating pulses The yield on the traditional seeds of pulses is also poor Disease and drought resistant seeds of pulses is still a dream for farmers The farmer is not assured of yield or price hence has moved towards wheat and rice even in areas where the water table is low leading to problems of deterioration of ground water in several districts of the country Farming experts have been asking for a change in government practices on wheat and rice for more than a decade now This is not something that BJP as a party is unaware about as it had the most robust manifesto for agriculture But there is no interest in the Minister or the ministry to kick-start this long term reform His colleague in Food and Supply Ministry Ram Vilas Paswan is no better The shortage of pulses is a historical reality but the supply ministry never plans for stocks in advance has no strategy for buying pulses It is always a knee-jerk reaction to the rise in prices that it opens up tenders for pulses Every importer knows and can time when the Ministry will rush in for the tenders Even global traders know the lack of planning in Indian government approach towards buying pulses The tenders are opened when the prices are the highest and global and domestic importers benefit from this Paswan has done nothing on the Food Corporation of India front too as an organization it is struggling and has become a den of corruption As a logistic infrastructure in the food industry it is the most crucial piece of the puzzle to keep consumer prices in check But nothing has been done on the FCI front A committee for revamping FCI came out with a report with bizarre suggestions of stopping procurement per-se in several states More on this committee report here Instead of suggesting how a pulses revolution could be ushered in through better procurement prices The non-performance of the Agriculture Minister and Food Supply Minister is the reason inflation is not coming in control Something that Finance Ministry is trying to address through monetary control But the real inflation control solution lies in long term solution on supply If Modi government wants to address the real economy better set of Ministers need to head these two Ministries Maybe just one Minister as splitting these two Ministries does not make sense The authoris a Delhi-based policy commentator who tweets @yatishrajawat Lucknow: The Samajwadi Party (SP) is ready to support any secular alliance for the presidential poll which is a few months away its president Akhilesh Yadav said "If there is any secular alliance (for the presidential poll) my party will support it" he told reporters at the SP headquarters His remarks came against the backdrop of CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury recently meeting Congress president Sonia Gandhi to explore the possibility of fielding a joint candidate for the presidential poll even as RJD boss Lalu Prasad talked about cobbling together a Bihar-style ‘mahagathbandhan’ (grand alliance) File image of Akhilesh Yadav AFP West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee too has called for a larger unity among the regional parties ahead of the presidential election Significantly senior SP leader Shivpal Yadav on Fridayannounced that party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav will head a "new secular front" to be formed by him The presidential election is scheduled in July and opposition unity for contesting it may well be a precursor to an anti-NDA front ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha election Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar had recently ruled out the possibility of a tie-up with the SP for the upcoming local bodies polls in the state Akhilesh though played it down saying "Our friendship with the Congress will continue" He however did not elaborate The Congress has decided to go it alone in the urban bodies polls in Uttar Pradesh The move is being seen as an impending end to the SP- Congress alliance which was forged before the recent Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls The alliance suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of the BJP in the UP polls It managed to secure only 54 seats (SP 47 Congress seven) as opposed to the BJP-led NDA’s 325 In the aftermath of the dismal poll performance speculation was rife that the allies might part ways for the urban bodies polls as the local Congress leaders had voiced opposition to the continuance of the tie-up On the Bulandshahr lynching incident in which a Muslim man was allegedly beaten to death by the workers of the Hindu Yuva Vahini (HYV) a right-wing group formed by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath after an inter-faith couple eloped Akhilesh said they (HYV) should also prepare a list of those BJP leaders who have had similar marriages "The people should know how many BJP leaders have had such marriages The HYV should go to Delhi and prepare such a list" he said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal finally broke his silence on Sunday evening He had been silently spending time in Bengaluru — going under the knife for a throat ailment — while the chikungunya and dengue cases peaked in Delhi and the oppositions had a field day attacking Delhi government And why not Till now the vector-borne diseases have claimed 27 lives and more than 3000 people have got infected Quite literally after regaining his voice the CM addressed the people of Delhi immediately after returning from Bengaluru through a video which was uploaded on Twitter by AAP volunteer and National Council member Akshay Malhotra on Sunday evening It was a stoic answer to all the detractors of Delhi government who had been asking uncomfortable questions on the alarming rise in the number of dengue and chikungunya cases Delhi CM @ArvindKejriwal appeal to everyone pictwittercom/4dBdihafSn — Akshay Malhotra (@Akshay1Malhotra) September 18 2016 Drawing an analogy of India-Pakistan cricket match Kejriwal appealed Delhiites and all political parties to get united in the war against mosquito menace like they do during the match “I appeal the Congress party and the BJP with folded hands to get united like we all Indians get together (to support India) during India-Pakistan cricket match and wage war against mosquitoes If Delhi got success on a much bigger issue of Odd-Even scheme we’ll sort out this mosquito menace” said Kejriwal in his address Putting rest to all controversies and political war of words that happened during his absence Kejriwal said a large number of chikungunya and dengue cases have emerged with people in almost every house in Delhi have been found to be suffering due to it “Besides the rise in mosquito menace lot of politics had been played on this issue I believe mosquitoes don’t discriminate between a Congress and a BJP person while biting We should stop politicking and take this problem head on MCD didn’t do its job which it was supposed to but now Delhi government MCDs and central government have to join hands and fight it out for the people of Delhi” he emphasized While the Delhi CM was in Bengaluru a political war of words erupted in the national capital over the absence of Delhi government ministers Manish Sisodia Satyendra Jain Gopal Rai etc (who were either touring abroad or were out of Delhi) as death toll due to vector-borne diseases rose The Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung had also been on a tour to the US and on his return asked the ministers to get back to Delhi Whilethe BJP had severely criticised the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government for the absence of the ministers the Congress mocked the government with a ‘Bhagoda Divas’ in Delhi Bengaluru Factor Kejriwal’s Bengaluru visits have always played an instrumental role in his decision-making process In March 2015 when two senior leaders of AAP Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan were evicted or precisely voted out from AAP’s Political Affairs committee party supremo Kejriwal wasn’t present in the national executive meeting in which the said decision was taken He was in Bengaluru for his naturopathy treatment Similarly in February 2016 while undergoing naturopathy treatment he had announced a loan of Rs 551 crore for North and East MCDs from Bengaluru And this time immediately after his return to Delhi on Sunday evening he broke his silence over chikungunya and dengue menace with a positive message rather than in his inimitable style of launching a scathing attack on his opponents Besides appealing for a united front to combat mosquito menace in the national capital Kejriwal announced a few measures that his government would take up Kejriwal’s measures — Called his Health and PWD ministers and told them to gear up to go on a war-footing to combat mosquito menace in Delhi — Ordered to buy as many fogging machines required to cover each and every corner of Delhi — Fogging should be done on every alternative day in every bylanes and locality — Has planned to meet the leaders of every political party in Delhi to discuss his strategy and seek cooperation — Appealed every political party to join hands with AAP government to deal with the alarming situation — Take stock of the arrangements in Delhi hospitals Written by P Chidambaram | Updated: August 14 2016 2:16 pm Dr Rajan’s last policy statement made on August 9 2016 was in plain English and could have left no one in doubt (Reuters Photo) Top News Dr Raghuram Rajan will lay down the office of Governor Reserve Bank of India on September 4 2016 It is a pity that the government has eased him out at the end of three years when he would have willingly served until September 2018 and if nudged until the government’s term ended in May 2019 Anyway let us put those events behind us Maybe the government will surprise everybody by making an inspired choice I certainly look forward to the announcement which is already overdue What awaits the new Governor To his successor and to the Prime Minister and the government Dr Rajan has left valuable messages Plain English Central Bank governors do not speak in plain English (or French or German or Chinese) They speak in an elliptical language leaving the listeners to make their own interpretations Mr Alan Greenspan a former chairman of the US Fed once famously told the US Congress “Gentlemen since I’ve become a central banker I’ve learned to mumble with great incoherence If I seem unduly clear to you you must have misunderstood what I said” Dr Rajan’s last policy statement made on August 9 2016 was in plain English and could have left no one in doubt The RBI is not yet prepared to cut the policy rate Let me cull out a few important statements from the policy: “Since the statement of June 2016 several developments have clouded the outlook for the global economy Across advanced economies growth in Q2 of 2016 has been slower than anticipated and outlook is still mixed Among emerging market economies activity remains varied World trade remains sluggish in the first half of 2016 Most financial markets did not anticipate the Brexit vote and equities plunged worldwide currency volatility increased and investors herded into safe havens Configuration of risks (In India) the prolonged sluggishness in the capital goods sector is indicative of weak investment demand… Business confidence is also looking up in recent months though the Reserve Bank’s survey for March 2016 suggests that capacity utilisation seasonally adjusted is still weak Retail inflation measured by the headline consumer price index (CPI) rose to a 22-month high in June with a sharp pick-up in momentum overwhelming favourable base effects In the external sector merchandise export growth moved into positive territory in June after 18 months… On the other hand imports continued to decline albeit at a slower pace than in recent months On balance inflation projections as given in the June bi-monthly statement ie of a central trajectory towards 5 per cent by March 2017 with risks tilted to the upside are retained [The chart gives a range of 48 to 64 per cent] In view of this configuration of risks it is appropriate for the Reserve Bank to keep the policy repo rate unchanged at this juncture while awaiting space for policy action” There are of course other statements that highlight the positive indicators such as positive outlook for value-added in agriculture pick-up in industrial orders expansion in the services sector moderate rise in rural wages likely easing in food inflation positive net portfolio inflows and ample liquidity Nevertheless the message to the government is clear: The RBI is awaiting action of the government that will create space for policy action by the RBI Where are the triggers We come back again and again to the absence of triggers to boost the economy In the absence of triggers there is no demand for credit from the manufacturing sector (as admitted by many public sector bank chiefs); there is little greenfield industrial investment; there is no evidence of job creation; and there is no ‘feel’ among the people that the economy is growing at 76 per cent Who has the hand on the wheel For example the Minister of Coal announced that availability of coal is abundant True but why are coal stocks piling up leading to cutback in coal production The Minister of Power claimed that there is no shortage of production of electricity True but at what price is electricity available why are there ‘load shedding’ by distributors and ‘back down’ by power plants and when per capita consumption is low why is there no demand for electricity There are three indicators that must be tracked every month by the government Firstly how many stalled projects have moved forward towards COD (commercial operation date); secondly what is the capacity utilisation at present in each industry; and thirdly how many new factories commenced production and how many new jobs were created The Governor was right when he said that he is awaiting space for policy action What he left unsaid is also pretty clear: it is only when action is taken by the government that the RBI will be persuaded to cut the policy rate Given this situation I think the government is obliged to tell the nation what it intends to do on sluggish demand stalled projects slow credit growth high food inflation depressed manufacturing sector and low job creation so that the RBI under the next Governor and the new Monetary Policy Committee will be persuaded to cut the policy rate Otherwise the blame game will continue without yielding any result The messenger has left a clear message and he has packed his bags Thankfully the potshots at the Governor have by and large stopped In 20 days from today the messenger would have left and only the message will remain
