But Vajpayeelike Narasimha Raoproved to be a great pragmatist and a coalition builder In 2004investors were nervous about a Sonia Congress dependent on the left One of Sonia Gandhis first decisions after results were out in 2004 was to get Manmohan Singh to address the media and reassure investors Singhs economic policy team and foreign policy initiatives further boosted investor sentiment In UPA 1 the economy marched forward The fatal blow to this sense of investor confidence was struck by a series of irresponsible policy actions taken by UPA 2 Desperate attempts have been madeand continue to be madeto reverse that trendoffer assurance and inject a sense of optimism in investorssavers and consumers The jury is still out India has been here before The monsoon and winter months of 1990 The government of the day understood the gravity of the situation In December 1990the then finance ministerYashwant Sinhasent Reserve Bank of India deputy governor C Rangarajan and the

government was trying to stabilise the economy and itself by securing IMF assistancehe pulled the rug from under its feet Elections were calledbut they got delayed by Rajivs tragic assassination The economy paid a heavy price for delayed action caused by political uncertainty and the inability of a lame duck government to act decisively Poor Yashwant Sinha has not yet forgiven Manmohan Singh for stealing his thunder In a recent newspaper columnSinha reminded us that much of what Singh did in July 1991 was in fact what he had intended to do six months earlier but was prevented from doing by a Congress that preferred to get elections out of the way before allowing the government to go to the IMF Ifin the next few monthsthe external pressures on the Indian economy do not easethe government will be caught on the horns of a similar dilemma No government would be in a position to go to the IMFif such a necessity were to arisebefore elections Indeedas we now see playing outeven if the government were to take proactive measures to attract foreign capitalor encourage Indians to bring back the dollars they are holding outsideor appoint a former IMF chief economist as RBI governor to reassure global investorsmost would want to wait and watch Investorsboth Indian and foreignare in a watch and wait mood It is unlikely that this mood will change till the general elections are completed and a new government takes charge That new government may well be this government I am not suggesting that investors want a new team in office They may well be satisfied with the existing team returning to office But they want this team to secure a renewed mandate and make its choices about key economic portfolios so that they can feel more confident about taking long-term investment decisions These domestic uncertainties may be compounded by external ones if the global strategic and/or economic environment turns more hostile Higher oil pricesa stronger dollar and other factors could exert even more pressure To add to all thisincompetent management of political challenges at homelike the situation in Andhra Pradeshor constant pressure from China and Pakistan on the bordercan

simmering 15-year-old unrest has flared up again The fresh spate of ethnic violence between the Karbis and the Rengma Nagas started towards the end of December when members of the Karbi People’s Liberation Tigers (KPLT) allegedly shot nine Rengma Nagas in Karbi Anglong Since then a cycle of retaliatory violence has claimed at least 19 lives and displaced thousands For decades the discontent among these tribes was expressed through demands for autonomy In many cases the state responded by granting the tribes autonomous territorial councils Karbi Anglong an autonomous district under the Sixth Schedule since 1952 witnessed the rise of a Karbi statehood agitation in the 1980s In the late 1990s the movement turned violent with Karbi militant groups increasingly involved in killings and extortion rackets The Rengmas in contrast are numerically weaker Despite a feeble demand for a regional council they have little political space in the state Yet both communities live in abject conditions and with few avenues for employment The competing struggles for limited resources and opportunities have sharpened ethnic rivalries It is a pattern that has become familiar by now — competing claims to increasingly scarce land were responsible to a large degree for the Bodo-Muslim violence of 2012 Tragedies like Kokrajhar and Karbi Anglong highlight the inadequacy of autonomous councils to meet the economic and developmental needs of the people Also in evidence is the abdication of the government which seems to have receded from these areas altogether In the case of the Karbi insurgency the government’s efforts to bring the rebels to the table for talks have been only partially successful In 2010 it signed a ceasefire agreement with one militant faction but the KPLT remained armed An already charged situation has become volatile with the easy availability of arms in the region If it is to stem the rising tide of violence in the region the state government must cut off these channels of supply and address the longstanding grievances of the people For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Prashant Pandey | Updated: August 11 2016 8:28 pm Top News Having offered his resignation Jharkhand BJP’s first tribal president Tala Marandi stay at the top could well be a matter of time now given the scale of vociferous opposition within the state unit’s rank and file They are angry over the manner in which the executive team was announced besides the fact that several old timers were simply left out Marandi was already in the thick of the controversy with his son facing charges of sexually abusing a minor and marrying another minor girl in which Marandi too has been named But Marandi’s loss could also put spanner in the works of Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das as this development may re-ignite the tribal vs non-tribal debate giving opportunity for the opposition parties to capitalise on Das the first non-tribal Chief Minister of the state has been assiduously trying to shift focus from this debate through his actions and words alike It is also part of the party’s agenda Time and again he has criticised Jharkhand naam-dhari (those bearing the name of Jharkhand) parties for doing nothing but lip service towards improving the lot of the tribal population The state unit too uses the same language to decry the opposition On the other hand Das has also been trying to appropriate jal jangal and jameen (water forest and land) the war cry for left-leaning Parties — as his own government’s cause Elevation of Marandi a hitherto unknown tribal MLA from Santhal Paragana region was officially explained as the strategy to increase BJP’s presence in that region which is heavily tribal dominated and extremely backward The party and Das who took great interest in Marandi’s elevation was hoping that a tribal face and the agenda of vikas (development) should be winning strategy in Santhal Paragana region the stronghold of the main opposition party Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) Party sources say that Das hoped Marandi a novice in organisation would tow his line while he went ahead with crucial changes in the policies particularly those related to the tribal population It may be recalled that Das went ahead with declaring the contentious domicile policy in April; Marandi was elevated to state BJP chief on March 17 Almost immediately Das faced opposition on the issue from the tribal leaders including senior leaders like Kariya Munda and Arjun Munda (leading the other faction in the party) — within the Party besides that of opposition and its ally AJSU However Marandi supported the move and the government went ahead with its criteria defining a local Watch Video: What’s making news Das went further ahead with crucial amendments in the two tribal Acts Chhotanagpur Tenancy Act and Santhal Paragana Tenancy Act seeking to make it free for the tribal to sell lands to non-tribal The argument being that land was needed for development However Marandi within a couple of days of the team being announced through a WhatsApp group on Sunday gave a statement indicating that he was opposed to it The top brass took note and summoned him and Das to New Delhi As of now the party is understood to be in search of another tribal face However it may be easier said than done as many of the tribal faces in the party have already voiced their concerns over the policy decisions being taken by the state government with respect to the tribal population in the state The longer it takes for the party to get back on track the more difficult it would become for it and Das to shift the focus from tribal vs non-tribal debate which has been Jharkhand’s political fulcrum so far
