Melissa Gonzalez fired in from close range in the 52nd minute after a neat passing interchange among three players. unless the Supreme Court annuls the high court verdict.As expected the paradox of Catch-22 now unfolds in all its severity For example the Delhi High Court verdict has inspired Jung to constitute a three-member panel to examine 400 files pertaining to executive decisions that were taken without his approval The panel is to fix responsibilities including criminal liability This could mean filing of more cases against AAP leaders You could say this isn’t unusual as a good many combative politicians have paid a hefty price in the past for challenging status quo But what is certainly unusual is the paralysis of the Delhi government Officials no longer care to listen to ministers They have taken their cue from the arrest of Kejriwal’s principal secretary Rajendra Kumar They know the central government’s “caged parrot” – the Central Bureau of Investigation – has a beak long and sharp enough to wound anyone When officials engaged in the AAP government’s pet projects can be transferred out often without rhyme or reason why would anyone heed to a popularly elected government Really is this what is meant by Constitutional authoritarianism Should the Supreme Court uphold the high court’s August verdict it makes immense sense to abolish the entity called the Delhi government There is no point spending money on elections 70 MLAs and ministers if the Lt General is ‘the government’ as it was before Delhi was given the Assembly Indeed the system of dyarchy – which divides the executive into authoritarian and popularly accountable segments – introduced in colonial India in 1919 – has been incredibly thrust upon Delhi in 2016 In case we wish to continue with the sham of elections we should enact a law declaring that the party at the Centre will also rule the Delhi state regardless of whether it wins three seats or none at all Because this is what the Modi government is guilty of – ruling Delhi without a mandate Yet the BJP should know its present could come to haunt it in the future For instance during his days as chief minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi mocked then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s Pakistan policy once declaring that a riposte to Pakistan had to be in its own language – that is violence must beget violence Two years in power has tempered Modi evident from his government’s response after the attack in Uri This underscores the importance of Opposition parties eschewing irresponsible behaviour It is equally true that a party in power shouldn’t violate the spirit of democracy if for nothing else at least to ensure it doesn’t provide a precedent to its successor And so it might be that whenever the BJP bows out of power at the Centre its successor could cite the Delhi example to abort or torment its state governments or party units Pundits say a future BJP government of Delhi would never undergo the treatment meted out to AAP This is because the only alternative to the BJP at the Centre is a Congress-led formation – and neither gun for each other beyond a point They cite the example of Hindutva terror cases which the UPA government never expedited This hypothesis will be tested over the next two years and a half on the evidence of steps the BJP government in Haryana will take to probe the allegations that Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra was involved in dubious land deals As of now the BJP and Congress’ stand on the AAP government is remarkably similar For instance both wanted to be impleaded in the Election Commission’s hearing on whether AAP MLAs who held the offices of profit should be disqualified; both allege AAP’s mohalla clinic generates illegitimate wealth for its MLAs; both think the Delhi police have been right in booking MLAs Obviously the Congress has no reason to provide comfort to the AAP government No Opposition party ever does more so as AAP in its Indian-against-corruption avatar had flung charges of corruption against members of the Manmohan Singh government But what is surprising is the Congress party’s silence on issues of Constitutional propriety We are yet to know whether it believes a democratically elected government should be subservient to the Lt Governor who hasn’t been elected – and whom the UPA government had appointed And to think the Congress went ballistic when its governments in Arunachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand were dismissed AAP did at least formally take a position against these dismissals Congress apart such is the bitterness among AAP leaders and volunteers that should AAP win Punjab it is almost certain its volunteers and even its government will harass the BJP and RSS there Any government in states or the Centre can snare even an innocent politician in court cases Certainly the BJP-RSS has been too long in politics to not have a past which can be investigated – and exploited Not only AAP but other parties too will be tempted to pursue the politics of vengeance even more viciously than before This is the enduring legacy of the Modi government’s AAP policy (The author is a journalist based in Delhi His novel The Hour Before

NewsIn an interview given to The Economic Times Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched the Brahmastra on the Congress party – the last hurdle for him to claim the Goods and Services Tax (GST) trophy “So much so the obstruction of GST is now not a Lok Sabha issue but has become a Gram Sabha issue The public in states like UP Bihar and West Bengal will be the biggest beneficiaries Therefore I do not think any political party will try to commit suicide by opposing GST” said Modi File image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi AFP With the monsoon session of Parliament just a few days away (slated to begin on 18 July) Modi realizes the criticality of building consensus for the crucial Bill Also there is widespread disappointment among investors and economy watchers with regard to the Modi government’s ability to pull off large-ticket reforms The latest such comment has come from Morgan Stanley Investment’s Ruchir Sharma who said he didn’t have any great expectations from the Modi government with respect to big reforms since the government is already past its prime Modi realises that the passage of GST is crucial for him to silence his critics Moreover with the GST gaining tremendous national interest Modi realises that the best political strategy is to isolate the ‘political party’ as the lone hurdle standing between the economy and the biggest tax reform of the decade Except the Congress most other major parties have given the nod for GST which is expected to help India create a uniform taxation regime subsuming several different taxes and offering clarity to overseas investors With the new regime likely to help the country broaden the tax base the GDP is expected to get an additional boost of 15 percent to 2 percent boost in due course True the BJP can’t entirely play the victim on GST The BJP had hard-fought to block the crucial piece of reform when it was in opposition and one of the BJP leaders who were hell bent against GST was none other than Modi himself in his earlier avatar as Gujarat chief minister But at this stage that can’t be the reason for the Congress to take the revenge The party on the contrary could use a temporary political defeat on the GST war as a tool to rebuild its shattered image There are a few reasons why it should support the GST now For one so that the country won’t miss the April 2017 deadline and can give time to state governments pass their own GST legislation and put in place the systems necessary for the final roll-out Second to put the economy on the high growth path broadening the tax base since India is in a sweet spot now with rest of the world firmly gripped by a prolonged phase of slowdown This is India’s chance to get on the big-ticket reforms road and consolidate its position among the emerging markets Also the numbers are improving for the BJP in the Rajya Sabha post the recent polls to the Upper House If the BJP manages to get all regional parties on board its chances to crack the GST puzzle is higher now But the Congress can still play spoilsport since the GST Bill is a constitutional amendment and the house needs two-thirds of the support of the Upper House If one goes by the recent comments of Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi the Congress isn’t yet in a consensual mode on GST “The sequence of the BJP’s conduct smacks of hypocrisy” senior Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi told The Hindu “Having vehemently the opposed GST bill for two-and-half years it (BJP) was embarrassed to find that two of the three Congress demands were endorsed by the government’s own Chief Economic Advisor” Singhvi said Singhvi is correct The Arvind Subramanian panel had suggested in favour of the Congress’ two demands on GST — removing the inter-state levy and creation of a joint dispute resolution mechanism But those two have never been the bone of contention on GST really The deadlock was on the third condition — capping the GST rate in the Bill But most experts have ruled against such a provision since capping the rate will make any future changes difficult say in the event of an emergency with respect to a specific region Hence Singhvi’s argument that all the governments should be “prevented from increasing it beyond a maximum” by including in the constitution might not be a workable idea Modi knows very well that the Congress party doesn’t have a strong case to block the GST any longer especially after most states have agreed to the broader contours of the Bill and Modi seems to have gained confidence of regional powers such as TMC and AIADMK Now read Modi’s comments in this backdrop “The states and especially the consuming states now understand the benefits of GST Most of the states have clearly understood that GST will benefit the poor through buoyancy of revenue enabling better services to them The poorest states will benefit even more” Especially the UP-elections due next year it makes immense political sense for the PM to highlight UP as a big beneficiary of the tax reform Modi has used the right weapon The PM would want to push ahead the big-ticket reforms before it is too late and to prove the likes of Ruchir Sharma wrong Even the cabinet reshuffle should be seen as an enabler to achieve that By isolating the Congress the smart political strategist in Modi has hit the Congress where it hurts most—the issue of the
