For any bid to be even madeits proposal runs through the corridors of at least eight ministries It is unlikely that these habits will be sorted out soon There have been myriad initiatives taken by each incoming administration to cut the red tape So we have to live with them What is needed at this juncture for perceptions to alter This would need decisionswhenever they are takento hold their

of black money sitting idle in vaults But the dervish dance on the issue has done us no good The benevolent combination of a soft global economic climate and cash-rich corporations at home to spur an investment boom are unlikely to return this decade The warts of decision-making could be glossed over under those conditions Not anymore India can yet ratchet up its growth rate to close to 8 per cent by 2014-15provided two things happen The first is that capital flows in from abroad and the second is that each governmentin the states and at the Centredecides to do its homework on economic decision-making Both form what is known as the necessary and sufficient condition for growth The gap between the current savings rate at 316 per cent and the investment rate is close to 352 per cent (2011-12) This can only be filled through capital flows from abroad Despite the gradual collapse of the eurozonethere is no ground for assuming that capital flows to India will mount on the rebound There are enough interesting regions opening up in Asiaincluding even Myanmarthat will be contenders for these flows To make the second condition workthenis tantamount to getting the perceptions right

every year Frequent changes in top leadership make confidence-building processes with foreign countries less effectiveas it becomes difficult to facilitate summit-level diplomacy continuously and deeply Although mutual visits by the prime ministers of both countries were conducted consecutively from 2005 to 2011mutual understanding between them suffered due to the fact that Manmohan Singhs Japanese counterpart kept changing It was also unfortunate that Singhs visit to Japan in November 2012 had to be suddenly cancelled as Japans then PM Yoshihiko Noda was going to be replaced soon As a result of the instability in Japans domestic politicsthe mutual prime ministerial visits that had been a feature of the bilateral relationship for the past seven years were put off It is nowhowevera

many people and he is still popular among Japanese votersaccording to recent public opinion polls These are indicators that the Abe cabinet may last longer than a year Morehe may even be able to serve

and visited India in August 2007 It wasthereforethe third summit meeting between Singh and Abe It is not an exaggeration to say that they are forming a close relationship andperhapsa good friendship

level It has also been said that Abe was well prepared for this meetingindicative of the importance he places on the Japan-India ties Recent economic and geopolitical circumstances make India a critical global partner for Japan India is an attractive market for Japanese business and industryas its domestic market will shrink drastically in the coming decades due to a rapidly ageing society

the expected script at Jantar Mantar today They were all fire and brimstone against old foe Narendra Modi adding new ammunition to the old grouse The well-attended rally was a show of strength against what the leaders called the "divisive NDA government that cheated the nation by making false promises" All the leaders occupying the stage were once part of the historic JP movement of the 70s The mass socialist leader was being invoked again by the leaders of the Janata Parivar to fight Modi and the BJP SP Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav chats with RJD President Lalu Yadav during the protest by Janata Parivar against Modi government at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on Monday PTI The leaders struggling redundancy in the face of the BJP wave in their strongholds mixed ridicule and hard facts in their speeches to take on the NDA government and its mascot RJD leader Lalu Yadav entertaining and engaging as ever was the show-stealer While he questioned Modi’s promise of achhe din JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav wanted to know what happened to the slogan sabke saath saabke vishwas Mulayam charged Modi with telling lies Besides the rhetorical speeches the day belonged to the humble Nehru topi (cap) resuscitated to life in mainstream politics by the Aam Aadmi Party A majority of the crowd could be seen wearing the cap in Samajwadi Party’s red colour with slogans written across There were yellow caps as well A few die-hard followers of the SP could be seen wrapped up in SP flags and some even had painted their faces with the party colour "I’ve come from Unnao to participate in this rally and I’m sure this new party under Netaji’s (Mulayam Singh) leadership will be able to take on the BJP which is trying to create communal tension” said Munnalal Yadav He was holding a placard with a slogan ‘Jhoote se nahi kaam se chalega desh’ (Country can run by work and not by making false promises) "In his poll rallies in Bihar Narendra Modi made promises and simultaneously ridiculed Nitish Kumar But now we can see there’s no initiative towards fulfillment of those promises If this new alignment stays united it may change the political scenario in a year or two We mustn’t forget that it was the JP movement which ultimately led to the formation of Janata Party that threw Indira Gandhi-led Congress out of power" remarked Shiv Prasad Sinha a school teacher and active supporter of JD(U) from Gaya However there were many spectators in the rally who differed as well "These leaders have ruled their states for 10 years or more; but they are not talking about the ‘achche din’ (good days) they provided to the people We’ll know how Lalu Prasad the original king of political scam (fodder scam) rendered Bihar as the most backward state in India Now they want Modi to fulfill all his promises in just six months How absurd it is” said Shashank who identified himself as an entrepreneur However the Janata Parivar is not concerned with the response of the crowd at this point This they say is a secondary consideration “Our aim was to bring back all the factions of the previous Janata Dal together and form a party that would raise voice against anti-people policies The new alignment has around 40 MPs from different factions and it would help us question the BJP in Parliament and outside on their failure to keep the electoral promises they made” Rajya Sabha member and JD(U) spokesperson KC Tyagi told Firstpost "Now the alliance won’t fight only for social justice and equity as in the past; instead the focus would be on economic issues and policies of the Centre that would have an adverse impact on the masses The movement has to be in a new form" he said After the show of strength at Jantar Mantar is any like-minded party expected to join the group "It’s the former Janata Dal offshoots that have made effort to join hands Let us see how things develop and whether they come up with any comprehensive economic programme Right now the Left is working on its own programme but we’re open to new developments Let’s see" said Communist Party of India leader D Raja A CPM politburo member called the move a "very positive development" "It’ll be a platform that will bring all secular and non-communal forces together and can create an impact in Hindi-speaking belt against the BJP and the Congress We’ll keep options open for any such alignment that addresses economic issues and speaks against neo-liberalism and communalism" he member said Aiming to put pressure on Bihar Governor Keshri Nath Tripathi for inviting him to form the next government in the

castes in government jobs Earlier Nitish Kumar and 130 legislators supporting him left for New Delhi in two batches Janata Dal-United chief whip Shrawan Kumar said "In the first batch 60 legislators

majority "Since we have not heard a decision from the governor we have come to the president" Tyagi told IANS Meanwhile Manjhi who insisted that he remained chief minister till he fails to prove his majority in the state assembly had called a cabinet meeting Tuesday where it was speculated that he may recommend dissolution of the state assembly It was in the meeting that the decision on the quotas was taken A JD-U leader close to Manjhi however said he "may or may not recommend dissolution of the state assembly but by holding a cabinet meeting he wanted to send a strong message that he is still the chief minister" Principal Secretary in the Cabinet Coordination Department B Pradhan said the cabinet meeting approved reservation for SC/STs in all government contracts of Rs50 lakh as
