votethis public disapproval of babuswho did not even get a voter cardepitomised the significance elections now have in popular discourse The Election Commission can take the creditbut the Chhattisgarh polls were also made possible by the joint efforts of security forcesbooth-level officersdistrict collectors and the media all ensuring that voters travelled to booths Even as the numbers indicated that the turnout would exceed all expectationsthey kep exhorting people to go out and exercise their right Consequentlyfirst the Maoist-hit areas saw an unexpected 7553 per cent votingand then the other zones recorded 785 per centmaking it a total of 77 per cent A record for Chhattisgarhpretty high for India as well Kurud constituency saw a nearly impossible 88 per cent vote Of coursethe free and fairness of a poll where security personnel to voter ratio was 1:6 can always be debated One also cannot completely discount the hypothesis that Bastar voters could not have turned out from interior villages without being asked by Maoists to choose certain candidates The victory of democracy was probably ensured by the tacit consent or a tactical choice of the rebels Howeverfew can dispute that even the mightiest forceswhether donning khaki or redcannot get so many voters to travel 30 km from their homes to vote While the truth may fall somewhere between these two polesthe fact remains that the voter in Bastarwhose contact with the world is mostly limited to yearly negotiations with traders of forest produceswaded through rivers and forests strewn with landmines to reach poll booths The tribal womanwho has never seen any political activity in her backyardbecame the first to enjoy the right to disapprove candidates through NOTA Significantlyunder-35 women comprised 35 per cent of the total 168 crore voterswhile 45 per cent of the voters were below 30 years Their vote preferences will be revealed laterbut the new government should note in advance that this voter

to and the quality of healthcare especially for the poorest citizens those most vulnerable to health shocks (Express Graphic by Pradeep Yadav) Related News Doctors — or more broadly medical practitioners — are the most important cogs in any health delivery system They diagnose the sick devise a course of treatment and follow it through the lead problem-solvers as it were As a series in this newspaper has shown however doctors particularly in the public health system are overworked and forced to cope with high-pressure situations for long stretches of time Resident doctors work inhumanly long shifts — 36-48 hours — and unsurprisingly make more mistakes with fatigue-induced lapses in concentration contributing to more serious errors while dispensing care and accidents that might cause harm to themselves Despite the risks there is little discussion within the Medical Council of India the autonomous regulator which oversees medical education and practice on the need to reduce shift hours for junior doctors in public hospitals Of course public hospitals are structured in a way that very long workdays are only one aspect that affects the quality of care health workers are able to provide Scarcity defines healthcare in government-run or -aided hospitals whether of medical and paramedical personnel equipment beds or money For instance according to the National Health Profile 2013 India’s doctor to population ratio (including Ayush professionals) is one per 1200 people — well below the World Health Organisation-recommended one per 1000 India also has the dubious distinction of providing fewer beds per 1000 people than Equatorial Guinea Gabon and Kenya Hospitals report shortages of basic equipment like surgical gloves syringes saline drips sutures and even cotton gauze callously asking patients and their families to source their requirements themselves instead At every turn structural and systemic deficiencies derail both access to and the quality of healthcare especially for the poorest citizens those most vulnerable to health shocks Often it isn’t a lack of funds but a corrupt tender process that is responsible for a lack of equipment halting regular acquisition until rents are collected With shambolic administration and little oversight this state of affairs is allowed to continue The MCI too is to blame It has routinely scotched attempts to devise alternative learning programmes that could address the demand for medical professionals ostensibly to protect the quality of training and healthcare creating an artificial scarcity The expansion of private medical training facilities on the other hand overseen by the MCI has been badly regulated Standards are lax and many of these institutions have grossly inadequate facilities an acute shortage of faculty and poor-quality training producing health workers who are both overburdened and incompetent For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsNew Delhi: Controversial meat exporter Moin Akhtar Qureshi was on Saturday sent to five-day custody of the Enforcement Directorate by a city court for "thorough investigation" in a money laundering probe against him and others Special Judge Arun Bharadwaj sent the accused to ED custody till 31 August after the probe agency said his custodial interrogation was required to unearth crime proceeds and money trail and to confront him with the documents While seeking his custody for 14 days ED’s special prosecutor NK Matta told the court that Qureshi was in possession of more evidence in this case and was withholding them jeopardising the probe Representational image AFP "Considering the seriousness of the allegations and to enable the ED to complete thorough investigation ED custody remand of Moin Akhtar Qureshi for five days that is until 31 August is granted" the court said The agency told the court that "the witnesses have confirmed in their statements that they have delivered crores of rupees for Qureshi and his associates through his employees and one of the witnesses has stated that nearly Rs 175 crore have been exported by the accused from him and his friend in lieu of the help provided to him in a CBI case" It also alleged that Qureshi was involved in hawala transactions through Delhi hawala operators Parvez Ali of Turkman Gate and M/s South Delhi Money Changer (DAMINI) in Greater Kailash-1 owned by one DS Anand According to the agency Qureshi was arrested late last night under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) after "he was not cooperating in the probe" Qureshi has been questioned several times in the past by the agency which is probing his role following the registration of two FIRs under the PMLA the agency said adding that he was arrested in connection with offense alleged in the last FIR in which former CBI Director AP Singh has also been named The earlier PMLA case against Qureshi was lodged by the ED in 2015 based on an Income Tax prosecution complaint it said The ED said its probe has revealed facts which "constitute omission and commission of certain acts on the part of certain public servants holding high positions in the public office in collusion with Qureshi thereby huge amount of illegal money were found to have been transacted" The records collected by the ED from the Income Tax (I-T) Department in the form of BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) messages have "revealed that Qureshi has taken a huge amount of money from different persons for obtaining undue favours from public servants after exercising his personal influence" it said BBM messages exchanged between Qureshi and the accused persons involved in other criminal cases and also the persons who wanted to seek undue favours from the other investigating agencies of government by getting them off the hook the agency said There were also BBM exchanges between Qureshi and former CBI chief Singh which are being probed both by the ED and the CBI as part of their separate criminal investigations it said In this way the ED said Qureshi "obtained a huge amount of money and it was obtained in the name of government servants/political persons holding public offices and the said public servants illegally either obtained the money for themselves or through their kin" The agency said an analysis of the BBM messages retrieved from mobile phones of Qureshi and his associates revealed that hawala operators were also used to transfer bribe money (belonging to government officials) to foreign locations like Paris and the UK "Qureshi has extorted crores of rupees from a businessman from Hyderabad in lieu of the help provided He was found involved in hawala transactions through Delhi-based hawala operators" the agency said Through them

NewsBy: Editorial | Published: August 29 2016 12:15 am Top News The Reserve Bank of India has announced a series of measures aimed at widening and deepening India’s corporate bond market The growth of this market has been relatively stunted compared to other segments of the financial markets despite the opening up of the economy and the financial sector over the last couple of decades The latest initiative comes at the fag end of Governor Raghuram Rajan’s term — brokers being allowed to participate in corporate bond repurchases or repos making corporate bonds eligible for borrowing from the central bank allowing foreign portfolio investors to trade directly in corporate bonds besides allowing banks to issue rupee bonds or masala bonds as they are dubbed in the overseas markets to bolster their core capital and to fund infrastructure and affordable housing The new policy measures also aim to cap the exposure of banks to corporates in the medium term to progressively nudge Indian companies to raise more capital from the bond market rather than leaning heavily on local lenders Most of these steps are positive and have been on the agenda of policymakers in the past Yet given the history and track record of the growth of the Indian bond market over the last 20 years there is bound to be scepticism regarding the latest move That’s because in this period India’s equity markets have surged — in terms of volumes participation of foreign and local investors and depth Similarily the government securities market though accessed mainly by institutional investors overshadows the corporate bond market thus exposing the shallow local corporate bond market compared to the experience globally That’s because for long India has been a bank dominated financial market with an overwhelming dependence of firms and large business groups on funding from banks India’s policymakers appear to have finally recognised the huge risks posed by this — in the form of battered balance sheets of many Indian banks especially state-owned lenders whose exposure to many long-term infrastructure projects of large business houses has come to haunt them and the government and the regulator It is in this context that the move to nudge them to tap the bond market to raise funds by capping the exposure of banks and through higher provisioning when lending to corporates by 2019 is extremely important But that will also pose a set of challenges in terms of banks identifying and funding a more diversified set of borrowers especially small and medium entrepreneurs instead of taking recourse to building their loan book through big ticket loans There is much at stake this time in the development of India’s bond markets as the old development financial institutions which funded several large projects for over four decades have withered away With Indian banks weighed down partly because of mismatches in lending to long-term projects out of short-term resources both the RBI and Sebi need to make it work this time to lower and diversify the risks for these lenders and to provide an efficient alternative of finance for borrowers A vibrant corporate bond market is also important from an external vulnerability point of view as a dependence on local currency and markets will lower risks It could also be an opportune time to encourage long-term institutional investors such as pension and provident funds to step in with safeguards to provide the needed boost to the market and to acquire matching long-term financial assets from a liquid bond market Former US Federal Reserve Chief Alan Greenspan had said that corporate bond markets could act as a spare tire For that both the RBI and Sebi will have to push much harder For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express

Related News I have deliberately framed the question so as not to restrict it to “India as a secular state” For I believe it is not enough if the Indian state is secular which it is not It is equally if not more important that we are a secularsociety a secular nation I believe this question needs to be asked reflected upon and answered truthfully My latest book Secularism — India At Cross-Roads on this subject is under print It is my conviction that India’s survival as a multireligious multilingual multiracial multicultural society will depend on how successful it is in working its secularism No society can prosper or be at peace with itself if one-fourths of its population feels neglected deprived and unwanted It is disconcerting to see that in recent times serious questions are being raised about India’s secularism It is for the first time since Independence that the Hindu rashtra ideology is being talked about so openly defiantly and persistently It is fortunate that the proposal of the Janata government contained in the Constitution (Forty-fourth Amendment) Bill 1978 for effecting amendment of the Constitution by holding a referendum on certain important matters did not find acceptance in the Rajya Sabha Otherwise attempts would even have been made to rally public opinion in favour of doing away with the secular characteristics of the Constitution and I would not be surprised if in the present polarised political atmosphere it would have found a majority support The Supreme Court itself has expressed apprehensions in this regard: “India till now is a secular country… we do not know for how long it will remain a secular country” Secularism — Constitutional Precepts and Reality A series of articles in the Constitution underline the precepts of secularism The realityis however quite disappointing The majority community as also the minorities aretotally disillusioned with the working ofsecularism Instead of being the cementing force secularism has led to alienation ofall communities In my forthcoming book on secularism I have elaborately brought out the strong opposition of Hindus which had to be resisted while enacting the Hindu Code Even prominent leaders of the Congress party were stoutly opposed to the reforms in Hindu law We should be eternally grateful to Jawaharlal Nehru for standing firm and getting the relevant enactments passed It is however unfortunate that Nehru did not show similar courage in initiating enactment of a uniform civil code If reforms in Muslim personal law had been pursued the social and religious ethos of the country would have undergone significant changes by now Having lost the golden opportunity at that time it will be impossible to enact a uniform civil code now irrespective of the exhortations of the Supreme Court unless there is a strong reformist and liberal move from within the Muslim community Sadly all political parties are remiss in encouraging modern scientific enlightened progressive and liberal leadership among Muslims In a secular state religion is expected to be a purely personal and private matter and is not supposed to have anything to do with the governance of the country The Supreme Court had observed in the Bommai casethat if religion is not separated from politics the religion of the ruling party tends tobecome the state religion This seems to be coming true Operationalising Secularism India’s future is intrinsically tied up with secularism To make a real success of it action on a number of important points is necessary The first is to define the word “secular” Since secularism has been declared as a part of the basic structure of the Constitution governments must be made accountable for implementing it But how can they be held accountable unless the meaning of the term “secular” is clear The second is to define the word “minority” The concept of secularism is based on recognition and protection of minorities The two cannot be separated One would have therefore expected that the founding fathers of the Constitution would first define the term minorities Unfortunately this was never done The third and most critical is the setting up of a commission on secularism for ensuring adherence to the constitutional mandate on secularism To be effective such a commission must be appointed by an amendment of the Constitution and should be presided over by a former chief justice of India The fourth is the separation of religion from politics It is of such urgency that no time should be wasted in bringing this about The Constituent Assembly (Legislative) had passed an explicit resolution on the subject as far back as April 3 1948 Nehru had welcomed the resolution and assured that the government “wished to do everything in their power to achieve the objective which lies behind this resolution” But though Nehru was prime minister for 17 years he failed to take any action on the resolution The only other time when any political party enjoyed a two-thirds majority in the Lok Sabha so as to be able to see through such a constitutional amendment was when Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi were in power But they too did not find it politically expedient to act on the resolution It was only after the demolition of the Babri Masjid when the secular credentials of the Congress party were being seriously questioned in India and abroad that the PV Narasimha Rao government brought the Constitution (Eightieth Amendment) Bill and a bill for amendment of the Representation of the People Act before Parliament in 1993 to bring about separation of religion from politics However the bills failed to receive adequate support and had to be withdrawn Unless this issue is addressed so as to carry through a suitable Constitution amendment it will be futile to talk about India as a secular nation On the basis of past experience and to meet the concerns expressed by some political parties during the debate on the Constitution (Eightieth Amendment) Bill in 1993 regarding the likely misuse of such an enactment I would suggest that the amendment bill should be confined only to deregistration of a political party which has religious links and restraining such political party from contesting elections at any level in the country The next item for action pertains to the right to propagation of religion There are a number of decisions of the high courts and the Supreme Court according to which the right to propagation is not a right to conversion This problem has to be nipped in the bud by amending Article 25 to delete the word “propagation” Another action point pertains to doing away with the protection to minority educational institutions There was considerable opposition to this article in the Constituent Assembly There is no justification to continue this right Finally serious thought needs to be given to deleting the provision for prohibition of cow slaughter Article 48 though a part of the directive principles has now been elevated in public discourse to the level of a fundamental right The basic question is whether a total ban on slaughter of cows and their progeny is justified on any grounds at all except that of the religious sentiments of Hindus But even in regard to them there is no universal demand for a total ban by all Hindus Most importantly such a ban is not in keeping with secularism Particularly in the drought-hit areas in a number of states such as Maharashtra it is causing largescale distress to farmers The Indian Constitution is a mix of several compromises particularly insofar as its proclaimed secular ideologyis concerned Two basic electoral reforms are imperative if secularism is to be strengthened The first is making voting compulsory The second is making 50 per cent plus one vote necessary to win A great deal remains to be done if secularism is to become a way of life in India For all the latest Opinion News download
