political are great GDP growth has slipped below 5 per cent a year a critical threshold Harvard economists Lant Pritchett and Larry Summers report that countries rarely grow much faster than the world economy for extended periods They suggest that India could enter a phase with GDP growth stuck in the 3 to 5 per cent a year range Maintaining prolonged high growth rates is unusual because it requires uninterrupted forward-looking investment in infrastructureeducationand economic and social governance The few countries that have broken free from regular relapses into low growthmostly in East Asiahave worked hard to ensure such investment Chinawhich Pritchett and Summers say faces the same risk as Indiahas bucked this tendency by continually investing in its future Its world-class

increased from virtually nothing 20 years ago to almost on par with France MeanwhileIndia has transitioned from promise to hubris and now to dejection The logjam in infrastructure development has

rarely been followed by effective action Two of Indias better statesHimachal Pradesh and Tamil Naduparticipated in the same PISA test in 2009; they competed for last place with Kyrgyzstan Despite progressthere remain formidable gaps in the quality of primary educationthe essential base for all subsequent learning Thusnotwithstanding heartwarming anecdotes of Indian educational and scientific successthe cold macro reality is that India is competing itself out of the global marketplace At the low-tech endIndian products are unable to compete with other low-wage countries; at the high endour human capital and infrastructure fall short At homemany Indian producers have ceded ground to Chinese manufactured imports At such momentswe turn with hope to new leadership Surely a new prime ministera new finance minister will turn things around The drumbeat for a more business-friendly leader has gained steady momentum Not just business-friendlybut one who can get things done Indeedthe lesson often drawn from Chinese success is that India needs more authoritarian leadership presidential governmentperhaps This is saviour fantasy and bound to disappoint It draws the wrong lesson from Chinaand India is not China The right lesson from China is that lessnot morecentral control is needed Chinese local governments have powerful incentives to support growththrough building roads and

Indians have greater right to protest butfor that very reasonpolitical leaders feel there is little cost in ignoring the protests until matters become intolerable There are no easy fixes All traditional political parties are beholden to a new rent-seeking culture Whereas once rent-seeking focused on licences for manufacturingtoday the focus is on government contracts Politics and economics remain joined at the hip Even populist programmes enrich the well-connected It should not be a surprise that recent growth has come largely from the financial sectortradehotelstransportation and construction These tendencies are precursors of long-term decline The emergence of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) holds more promise than does a national saviour The AAP will most likely not sustain its campaigns economic undertakingsand that may prove to be its undoing But the stranglehold of corruption stands a real chance of being weakened Indias greatest strength and achievement is its democracy And while democracy is messy and may get messierit is democracy that must be leveraged for economic and social progress The international evidence is clear: in the long rungenuine democracy and economic welfare reinforce each other The promise lies not in the AAP scaling up to the national level but in the emergence of AAPs across the country The real promise lies in the possibility of political entrepreneurship and the electorate leading a transformation of politicswhether through insurgent political movements or pressures to reform old parties It lies in the competition for ideas to reset the governance structure India cannot be governed from the Centre Economic reform and effective service delivery will only occur with meaningful political and fiscal decentralisation to state and local governmentssupported by administrative reform This needs to be done under the watchful eyes of local residents who can demand tangible accountability through electoral and direct measures

when the Bihar assembly meets to hear the Governor’s address and hold a vote of confidence in Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi former CM Nitish Kumar will get what he wants: the CM’s chair Firstpost has learnt that after the debate on the trust vote Manjhi may choose to announce his resignation on the floor of the House without actually seeking a vote on his motion But before he does that he is expected to give an impassioned speech where he will basically target Nitish Kumar and how he intended to keep him (Manjhi) as a puppet Manjhi by all accounts will link his fate to the humiliation of a Mahadalit Manjhi is set to resign PTI image Deliberations within the top BJP leadership suggest that the party will not play any tricks in Bihar ahead of the vote It will not support Manjhi Nitish Kumar and his backers Lalu Prasad Yadav Sharad Yadav the Congress the CPI and others can now relax and wait for another four days to light their firecrackers if they so desire However if this script unfolds as expected thanks to Manjhi’s efforts Kumar may be forced to begin with extra baggage – two deputy CMs one a Dalit and the other a Lalu Prasad nominee The Dalit could be Ramai Ram and Lalu’s nominee is expected to be his daughter Misa Bharti The new government will start with all the trappings and handicaps of a marriage of convenience Since the date chosen by Governor Kesrinath Tripathi (20 February) coincides with the budget session it will include an address by the Governor to a joint sitting of both the assembly and the legislative council Soon after this speech the debate on the trust vote will begin Nitish Kumar who is not a member of the legislative assembly will have to stay away from the proceedings The Speaker’s decision to grant him leader of the house status has been dismissed by the Patna High Court Sources told Firstpost that the BJP which has 87 members in the assembly has decided to take a hands-off approach on the trust vote which it says is the result of an internal power struggle within Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) This means the trust vote will not see any high-wire act or tensions Manjhi has been in Delhi since yesterday Tonight (16 February) he has to attend a Presidential banquet hosted in honour of the visiting Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena The Bihar CM is an invitee because Sirisena plans to visit the Buddhist pilgrimage site of Bodh Gaya on 17 February Manjhi on his part used the opportunity to meet Home Minister Rajnath Singh among others and gave a host of interviews to the national media Things have become clearer after the BJP decided not to support Manjhi in the floor test He has been told about it There was growing opinion within BJP ranks that support to Manjhi could prove to be counter-productive for the party’s chances in the assembly polls due before the year-end The party did help Manjhi by giving him time to go out and “expose” Nitish Kumar and seek the support of MLAs but it does not want to be seen as supporting a split within the JD(U) If that had happened said a BJP leader “we would have committed the same mistake that Nitish has committed” Manjhi has been a poor performer as CM But the treatment meted out to him by Nitish Kumar has turned Manjhi into a Mahadalit leader The BJP wants to encash that sentiment by giving him an opportunity to defend himself and dent Kumar’s image The BJP also realises that Nitish Kumar does not have much time left to make an impact in Bihar as CM With just six months left Kumar hardly has time to claim major improvements in administration Moreover he has to explain his partnership with Lalu Yadav a convicted criminal and Congress to the electorate The BJP does not want to ruin its chances of reaping an anti-incumbency vote by seeming to be in favour of political skullduggery Bhopal: Can the ruling BJP dismiss the fresh charges over Professional Examination Board scam in Madhya Pradesh as lightly as it has been doing in the past This time around the Congress has come armed with specific charges backed by an affidavit to suggest Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s direct involvement in the scam that runs into several hundred crore rupees and ruined the careers of thousands of students The government and the ruling party has resorted to stock replies while trying to hide behind the massive mandate it got in the assembly and Lok Sabha elections The State Health minister and government spokesperson Narottam Mishra has said the allegations are baseless and without any substance Congress leaders at the press conference on Monday PTI image “We have full faith in the SIT STF and the Courts If necessary we will probe these charges The Congress keeps coming up with such charges on the eve of the assembly sessions It is a sign of despair after the party lost the people’s mandate" the minister said When asked why the government was not announcing the prosecution of Digvijaya Singh the minister said nonchalantly “The matter is being studied” Party spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao was even more superficial He said Digvijay Singh’s credibility was low and the charges could not be believed The Congress has raked up the issue only a couple of days before the assembly session begins This time the party presented a rare unity among the different factions Congress general secretary and former chief minister Digvijaya Singh was accompanied by former Union ministers Kamal Nath and Jyotiraditya Scindia apart from legal eagle KTS Tulsi at a press conference Singh said he has filed a statement under oath before the Justice Chandresh Bhushan-led Special Investigation Team (SIT) constituted by the high court to monitor the scam The Congress team claimed the original excel sheets of the PEB results were manipulated The party also said the original hard disc of PEB controller Nitin Mohindra’s computer which contained the most crucial electronic evidence in the case – an excel sheet – was tampered with by investigating officers Singh challenged the chief minister to prosecute him if his affidavit is wrong; or resign if they were right The entire government machinery is being misused to shield the chief minister and his family while implicating senior party colleagues like Uma Bharti and even the Governor and his family members they alleged The government is also trying to save RSS leaders who names have appeared in the scam the Congress team said Uma Bharti had also earlier asked for a CBI inquiry into the matter "The SIT had admitted that the hard disk recovered in connection with the MPPEB scam was cloned" Tulsi said Singh said Chouhan’s name appeared 48 times in the documents that recommended the candidates giving them an unfair advantage in the results It was changed to “minister” at 21 places and to Uma Bharti 12 times he alleged "It is not just the biggest scam of MP but injustice has been done with youth of the state" Kamal Nath said Nath also demanded that Chouhan should resign so that an impartial probe can be carried out in the scam "Names of prominent people involved in the scam were ‘deleted’ from the sheet to give them a safe passage" said Singh STF’s weak investigations will crash during trials and there won’t be any convictions They have not even confiscated the server of MPPEB to strengthen its evidence he said "STF took young students to jail while giving a clean chit to high and mighty involved I openly say that several names have been deleted from Mohindra’s excel sheet which is a cognisable offence I would take STF officers to jail if necessary" said Singh "The scam investigations will fall flat during its hearing in the court STF officers whose confidential report (CR) is prepared by chief minister will never go against himr This case has to be investigated by CBI If SIT fails to address my objections I will move supreme court again" Singh added Justice Bushan had asked Singh to submit proof to substantiate his claims against STF’s investigation Singh had written to SIT chairman claiming the STF found scapegoats to save big fish in scam Singh had sent a nine-page letter of representation to chairman of the SIT finding fault with STF investigation after Supreme Court refused to order a CBI inquiry into the alleged scam The documents presented before the SIT include the copies of excels sheets that have been vetted and settled by the former Union minister and party counsel Kapil Sibal" Trump said,000 crore.
