now that is Yet another indication that crazy season (by which we mean election season of course) is well and truly upon us Updated: April 9 2014 8:15 am Related News BJP manifesto’s vagueness on foreign policy could be his opportunity Foreign policy is rarely central to elections anywhere in the world It is no surprise then that the foreign policy sections in the manifestos put out by the Congress and BJP seem an after-thought Both end up with a long laundry list of disparate propositions Marginal though they are the manifestos do offer a peep into the dominant worldview of the Congress and the BJP Both are disappointing in their inability to comprehend the central imperative of India’s foreign policy — the extraordinary international interdependence that defines India’s contemporary condition Nearly a quarter of a century after the launch of economic reforms more than 50 per cent of the Indian economy is tied up to imports and exports India imports 90 per cent of its hydrocarbon requirements and a growing share of its coal consumption from abroad The welfare and progress of the Indian people have never depended so much on what happens beyond its borders And as the 10th-largest economy India too matters to the world more than ever before That is one reason why there is so much global interest in these elections Yet the assumptions guiding the Congress and the BJP are rooted in a different era The challenge for India is no longer about preventing the world from impinging on its choices but to using its growing economic and political weight to shape the external environment to its benefit The foreign policy section of the Congress manifesto is bizarre in its talk about solidarity with “socialist” countries and reveals the make-believe world of the party’s leadership The BJP manifesto is not up to speed either Although some of the new ideas outlined by the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi over the last few months did find their way in the manifesto is quite clearly a triumph for the old guard that is so out of touch with the world One new theme in the BJP manifesto is the call articulated often by Modi to make the states partners in the execution of Indian foreign policy Coming from the BJP with its traditional emphasis on centralisation the emphasis on the role of states is somewhat counter-intuitive It comes amid mounting concerns in Delhi’s foreign policy establishment that the Congress party has weakened the Centre’s hand and ceded a veto to the states especially Tamil Nadu and West Bengal The Congress reserves its longest paragraph in the foreign policy section to Sri Lanka as a bow to pressures from Tamil Nadu Rather than attack the Congress for its appeasement of states Modi wants to make the state chief ministers allies in boosting Indian diplomacy The proposition holds much promise but needs to be fleshed out in greater detail A second innovation in the BJP manifesto is the idea of crafting a “web of alliances” to boost India’s weight on the global stage It stands in contrast to Congress’s obsession with the traditional conception of non-alignment To be sure the BJP seems to share the Congress’s aversion to alliances with big powers like the United States In fact neither party mentions relations with the US The Congress talks about improving relations with all major powers and the BJP says Indian foreign policy will not be led by the big powers But what about alliances with middle powers and smaller states that are seeking greater security cooperation with India Delhi established treaty-based alliances with its smaller Himalayan neighbours and defence cooperation with middle powers like Indonesia and Egypt in the Nehru years More recently India has signed up for strategic partnerships with a number of countries in the extended neighbourhood The UPA government has talked the talk but has been afraid to walk the walk The reluctance of the defence ministry under AK Antony has prevented a vigorous pursuit of military diplomacy The drift in the economic ministries has undermined Delhi’s ability to develop significant strategic economic cooperation with India’s partners Building a web of Indian alliances in Africa Asia and the Indian Ocean is a big idea whose time has come A third important element a strategic conception of the subcontinent finds some expression in the Congress manifesto which says deeper economic engagement with the neighbours is “critical for realising the true potential of the region” The BJP criticises the Congress for the recent drift in the relations with the neighbours but offers little more than the assertion that it will “pursue friendly relations” with all neighbours The emphasis is on projecting a muscular regional policy: “where required we will not hesitate from taking strong stand and steps” But bravado is not a substitute for a comprehensive neighbourhood strategy One would have assumed that the BJP would highlight the regional dimensions of Modi’s domestic focus on economic development Instead the BJP has spewed tough rhetoric on illegal migration from Bangladesh is unwilling to back a transformation in the ties with Dhaka that the Congress pursued but could not finish and is unable to focus on trans-border connectivity and regional economic integration The manifesto has only revealed the BJP’s lack of a grand strategy for the region In the end though the BJP manifesto is a classic committee document that seeks to say many things to many people But its vagueness should offer Modi as the prospective PM considerable freedom to put his own stamp on India’s foreign policy Unlike Manmohan Singh who had to yield constantly to the Congress’s self doubt and lack of strategic imagination Modi would have sufficient authority in the BJP to set his own strategic priorities Modi’s success on the diplomatic front will depend on an emulation of the last BJP prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee who successfully carved out foreign policy autonomy from his party’s antediluvian world view The writer a distinguished fellow at the Observer Research Foundation Delhi

President Sheikh Ahmad Al Fahad Al Sabah said the Asian Games was already too big (Source: AP) Top News The influential head of the Olympic Council of Asia has dashed hopes that athletes from Oceania nations including Australia and New Zealand might be able to compete in the Asian Games from 2022 Athletes from the two countries took part in the Asian Winter Games as “guests” in Sapporo earlier this year and the Australian Olympic Committee said talks were being held about extending the invitation to the summer versions Nineteen Oceania nations are represented for the first time at the ongoing Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games in Turkmenistan but OCA President Sheikh Ahmad Al Fahad Al Sabah said the Asian Games was already too big “I hope at the next Indoor Games we will have the same experience and Oceania will continue with us in the Indoor Games” he told a news conference adding that the Asian Beach Games might also be an option for Oceania athletes “With the Asian Games we are already at 15000 athletes and officials and we cannot add to that number In the Beach Games and Indoor Games we can continue to have our coordination and cooperation but for the Asian Games the number is very high and we cannot have an Olympic Village with more than 15000 people” Next year’s version of the quadrennial Asian Games which is second in size only to the Summer Olympics takes place in Indonesia with the 2022 edition scheduled for Hangzhou China Australia has long entertained the idea of forging closer ties with Asia in the hope of exposing their athletes to stiffer competition In 2006 Australia’s national soccer body ditched Oceania to join the Asian Football Confederation but previous attempts to compete at the Asian Games have failed They had the backing of China who want tougher competition especially for their swimmers but not Sheikh Ahmad who is also the president of the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) representing more than 200 countries worldwide AOC President John Coates another influential member of the International Olympic Committee said in Sapporo in February that participating in the Asian Games would be “very good”

Thackeray (File Photo) Related News Slamming BJP president Amit Shah Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray today said the upcoming electoral battles are no “friendly matches” and the BJP has lost a “staunch supporter” who backed Prime Minister Narendra Modi even after the Gujarat riots “The BJP President says this is a friendly match between them while the state leaders call this a ‘Mahabharat’ between ‘Kauravas’ and ‘Pandavas’ I want to tell Amit Shah this is no friendly match now You have lost one who has always backed you and has been your staunch supporter A supporter who backed (PM Narendra) Modi after the Gujarat riots when everybody was against him” he told in his first BMC poll rally here Shah had last Sunday said there were no differences with the Sena and that he hoped its decision to contest the Maharashtra civic polls independently was not going to cause damage to the alliance Thackeray said he does not want to play the politics of alliance anymore after having seen the behaviour meted out to the Sena Watch What Else Is Making News “In future Sena will be alone only on the support of the Shiv Sainiks” he said Quoting Shah Thackeray said when he says there are no differences and only ‘manbhed’ (differences of the heart) between the estranged allies the BJP should come clean on the issues on which there is a ‘manbhed’ “We will not leave the cause of Hindutva If you do there is ‘manbhed’ If you do not stop the atrocities being conducted by Pakistan there is ‘manbhed’ If you give money to the family of Burhan Wani after he was killed there is ‘manbhed’ If farmers land is snatched and given to industrialists and if people are made to stand in long queues due to demonetisation there is ‘manbhed’” the Sena chief said Thackeray said the “mask” of transparency the state BJP leaders had been wearing all along has been removed by its own government at the Centre as the Economic survey tabled in Parliament has ranked the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation as the most transparency body in the country “Chief Minister (Devendra Fadnavis) said he will show the Sena its place on the day of results I thank him for saying so as he has sealed our win with these comments Even during the previous polls the then Chief Minister had said Sena will nowhere be seen but today that Chief Minister is nowhere to be seen We are here” he said “Recently when I had met the Chief Minister (Fadnavis) during a BMC programme I had told him we are ready to give him credit even though no work has been done by them But one should have the capacity to take free credit as well” Thackeray said He said historically the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister do not go for campaign for local polls but the current PM and the CM have no time to administer as they are busy campaigning for as small as society polls “How and when will they administer then” he questioned “What kind of administration is this Make big promises before polls and forget all of them later This culture was never seen before and will never be seen in future as well” he said Referring to the foundation stone laying ceremony of a memorial for Chhatrapati Shivaji Thackeray said it has been over a year since the foundation stone for Babasaheb Ambedkar’s memorial was laid by the PM at Indu mills but not a single brick has been laid as yet Referring to the BJP’s call for
