the political significance of today’s Supreme Court verdict referring to a constitution bench the question of freeing the convicts of the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case Immediately nothing because the elections are over When Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa and her government decided in February that the convicts would be released from jail after the apex court commuted the death sentence of three of them it was seen as a electoral ploy However the issue hardly came up during the campaign – neither Jayalalithaa nor the DMK chief Karunanidhi made it a poll-plank That it was not even a fringe issue was a harbinger of things to come Nalini (pictured above) is among those who could be released PTI The AIADMK can certainly laud itself for boldly deciding to release the convicts and continue to target the DMK for doing practically nothing for them or their families when it was a UPA coalition partner The public sympathy was with Jayalalithaa for her decision and there is no reason for it to change because she has done everything at her disposal She is likely to continue her stand that the convicts need to go home The DMK will make some noise over the decision perhaps comment even on the Supreme Court Chief Justice Chief Justice P Sathasivam had raised some eyebrows when he told reporters in Coimbatore last week that he would give the verdict on the case before his retirement tomorrow DMK chief Karunanidhi had taken exception to the judge’s statement and said that he shouldn’t have discussed the issue in public particularly during the elections The only other thing that the party can do is to sympathise with the family and make more noise as it has in the past However there will be pressure on the new government if BJP comes to power because MDMK its poll-ally in the state is a strong supporter of the Sri Lankan Tamil cause and has been actively campaigning for the release of the convicts The MDMK cannot go slow on the issue and will certainly put pressure on the NDA if it forms the government In fact that will leave the convicts with some hope because their release was halted only by judicial intervention of the Congress government Had the central government overlooked the AIADMK government’s decision they would have been free by now Therefore if the BJP forms the next government it will be logically good for the convicts; but for the party it will be one its early headaches The Congress will oppose as it has consistently done in the past and the BJP ranks also might join them because it violates their inflexible position on terror But MDMK – and to some extent its other alliance partner the PMK – cannot keep quiet It will certainly put pressure on the BJP leadership The BJP will also come under pressure from the the AIADMK – more formidable than the MDMK – if it decides to join the government or support it from outside In such a situation which is a very possible prospect the former will have to soften its stand and perhaps quote human rights or some national or international covenants to get away The DMK – and its alliance partners such as VCK – too will make some inconsequential noise perhaps similar to the way it responded while it was in government with the Congress There is nothing expedient and popular about the issue and hence it will just keep contributing to the simmering emotions of the supporters of the cause So the convicts should pray that the BJP forms the next government and the AIADMK as well as the front that was led by the former do reasonably well in Tamil Nadu New Delhi: Congress on Friday opposed the creation of NITI Aayog claiming that the move to replace the Planning Commission was a "dangerous" one and an attack on the federal structure and was aimed at centralising powers in the Prime Minister’s Office Congress said replacing the Planning Commission could be dangerous AFP "It is a matter of concern as what has happened is a direct attack on the federal structure It is an attempt at centralisation and making the plan body an extension of the PMO" party spokesman Ajoy Kumar told reporters in New Delhi Insisting that the move was not only wrong but "dangerous" as proper development could take place only through "bottoms up" approach he said the creation of NITI Aayog was an "attack on the freedom of the states and the Panchayati Raj institutions" Kumar wondered as to how the "centralised" body would decide on problems of development of a vast India when decentralisation is the key to the progress of villages and the countryside The reaction of Congress came a day after the Socialist-era Planning Commission was replaced by a new think-tank NITI Aayog that will be headed by the Prime Minister and will have all Chief Ministers as members in a broad-based Governing Council to involve states in evolving national development priorities Congress leaders have also suggested that "anti-Nehruvianism" and "anti-Congressism" was behind the government’s decision of restructuring and renaming the Planning Commission as "NITI Aayog" PTI Tokyo: With India retaining the fastest growing large economy tag post latest GDP numbers Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today said the country is on an "upward curve" and a good monsoon GST passage and increased infra and rural spending will further accelerate the growth With pro-growth policies helping gross domestic product grow a faster-than-expected 79 per cent in January-March quarter and 76 per cent in the entire 2015-16 fiscal he asserted that these are not "stray figures" and an analysis of the pattern shows inherent strength in the economy Also aiding was the growth in output of eight core sectors growing 85 per cent in April on the back of pick up in output of refinery products fertilisers steel cement and electricity A file photo of Finance Minister Arun Jaitley PTI "Last two years a number of factors were loaded against us – there was a global slowdown and we had two consecutive below normal monsoon rainfalls" he said adding that people are surprised how India has managed to grow at the fastest pace in the world Going forward "reform process is going to continue Hopefully Goods and Services Tax (GST) bill is passed (in ensuing monsoon session of Parliament) which has the potential to add to GDP growth Also our infrastructure and rural spending will add to that" he said commenting on the latest GDP numbers On the forecast of a good monsoon this year Jaitley said it "would mean an increase in agriculture production more purchasing power and rural demand" On the growth clocked in 2015-16 Jaitley — who is on a six-day investor wooing tour of Japan — said there was improvement in the agriculture as well as the services sector "More importantly there is a consumer demand and there is increased consumer spending" he added The GDP expansion in January-March period bettered 72 per cent of December quarter and helped extend the lead over China which grew 67 per cent in the March quarter – the slowest in the world’s second largest economy in seven years Earlier speaking at a meeting organised by Japan-India Business Cooperation Committee he said investors looking for higher returns should park funds in India’s infrastructure and manufacturing sectors "As growth would return to the world consumer spending would pick up hopefully the monsoons would be better this trend which has been set in India itself could be improved upon That we are on an upward curve seems evident" he said Jaitley said the Indian economy clocked 7 per cent growth rate in every quarter last fiscal despite an unsupportive global economy and two consecutive years of weak monsoon This has been possible because of increased public spending the performance of India’s private sector and the confidence which foreign investors reposed in India by investing the highest ever even in the slowdown years he added "I’m sure Japanese investors and funds and other agencies who are looking forward for gainfully employing their resources would certainly look at the India story which offers attractive destination for investment" the Finance Minister added He said that besides infrastructure the manufacturing sector is the top most priority and provides very large opportunity to international investors to participate in India growth story India offers flexibility to investors Jaitley said adding that impetus on ‘Make in India’ increased infrastructure and rural spending would help push growth "The returns that India offer are extremely attractive compared to other destinations the magnitude and volume of investment required is much larger and it’s for a reasonable period of time that this investment is going to continue because infrastructure deficit has to be met" Jaitley added The Finance Minister said the Indian government is now continuing on the reform trajectory which was left undone in 1991 and people have become aspirational and are supporting reforms "India today is passing through a very critical phase in its history In 1991 we had a very important reform programme which was initiated it proved to be very successful We continued on that roadmap and I think what was left out is now being implemented There is never a last day in the calendar of reforms situations are dynamic they keep changing they keep progressing Newer challenges come up and we expect newer responses from the government" he said He said Japanese companies have become household names in India starting from automobiles to household appliances to also the Delhi Metro "Our industrial corridors are being built with Japanese assistance and I am sure the ambitious Bullet Train project between Mumbai and Ahmedabad once implemented will be absolutely a showpiece in India’s economic development" he said adding currently there are over 50 projects of different magnitudes being implemented in India today "I don’t see a period which is very far off where almost every major city in India which aspires to have a local transport system based on Delhi Metro to become reality" Jaitley added “Osaka city is flexible.
