Home Minister’s panacea of 5 Cs
By K.N Pandita Home Minister Rajnath Singh has just concluded his 4-day visit to J&K. He spent maximum of his time in Srinagar, and the customary eye wash of visit to Jammu by way of a balancing act. I looked up in dictionary to find out if 5-Cs carries some deeper or mysterious meaning. I found none. What does HM want to convey and to whom, is my question. One usually observed ritual about Kashmir issue is to “talk in hyperbole”. Responsible Central and State Ministers all take recourse to hyperbole when they are under pressure to articulate on the genesis of Kashmir question. It is never a straightforward and honest articulation and the reason is that they have no c...

ARC alone can end Jammu discrimination
Straight Talk
By K B Jandial Jammu rightly woke up last week to speak out its anger-filled heart to two important panels, one headed by the former PM Dr. Manmohan Singh and another by Union Home Minister Rajnath which visited the State. The ‘Policy and Planning Group’ of Congress set up in April this year, sought to update its approach towards J&K situation before formulating its policy on the State while Rajnath’s delegation was a follow-up to Modi’s I-Day call for embracing (galey lagana) Kashmiris to restore peace & confidence and also to review overall situation including execution of PM’s Rs one lakh crore development package. While the Home Minister group came to Jammu after spending t...

PM reshuffles his ministerial team
By K.N. Pandita For the first time ever since Narendra Modi formed NDA government in 2014, a major reshuffle has been made in the ministerial team. Common belief is that ministerial reshuffle is not a major event that takes place during the tenure of a party in power. From that angle the recent is not fraught with any unusual significance. Reshuffling of the Council of Ministers is the prerogative of a Prime Minister, who, in the parlance of political science is the first among the equals. The essential philosophy behind reshuffle is neither disapproval nor censure of any ministerial colleague though deducing such negative inferences is something like a fantasia that has s...

J&K: Way ahead
By B L Saraf By way of mid-term appraisal of his governance, PM Narendra Modi has just reshuffled the Cabinet. Merit of the exercise apart, Cabinet changes are a routine affair, used as a device for ensuring administrative efficiency and effective political management required for better election results. We are given to understand that changes in the Cabinet were, partly, based on performance and, in part, aimed at 2019 Lok Sabha elections : that indolence has been punished and efficiency appreciated. It is good to see accountability catching up with the persons perched at the top. As it is with a commercial enterprise so with the Government, it is better to have a period...

Good and Bad Reforms
By Amit Kushari The last three years have been quite eventful in India. We had Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister, who had a very keen desire to reform the Indian society in every possible way. Since he had a brute majority in Parliament, he could venture to attempt many things which even great Prime Ministers like Atal Bihari Bajpayee and Narasimha Rao didn’t dare to undertake because they simply did not have enough numbers and had to depend on other parties. Rajiv Gandhi did have the numbers but he did not attempt to bring in uniform civil code or abolish Article 370 and 35A of the constitution. He was not willing to lose Muslim votes; he did not want to lose the support o...

Feelers for surrender by freshers
By K.N. Pandita Like all regressive activities, militancy, too, has to come to its logical conclusion which is its total effacement. This thinking developed soon among Kashmirian civil society after the separatists refused to interact with the All Party Parliamentary delegation that visited the valley last August. However, during the delegation’s two hour halt at Jammu, and its interaction with the representatives of local civil society, it became clear to them that astute statesmanship demanded that the separatist leadership in Kashmir is isolated and alienated on its home turf. Herein lay the roots of changed strategy of the security forces in handling varying facet...

Threats, street violence won’t save Article 35A
By K B Jandial Apex Court’s decision to hear after Diwali four clubbed petitions challenging Article 35A and Section 6 of J&K Constitution relating to special rights to Permanent Residents to the exclusion other Indians, couldn’t have come on better day for Mehbooba Govt. It has largely put down the flayed political tempers in Kashmir as is evident from suspension of announced separatists’ protest calendar. Seriousness of the issue for Kashmir separatists can be seen from their joint statement issued to announce protest calendar coinciding with earlier dates of SC hearing. SAS Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar and Yasin Malik described the fight for Article 35A as a “matter of life and ...
