funeral on Sunday vowing to intensify their protests against a bid by the president of the central African nation to seek a third consecutive term Opposition leaders also said they were suspending talks with the government of President Pierre Nkurunziza after Zedi Feruzi the leader of the Union for Peace and Development (UPD) a small opposition party was gunned down in the capital Burundi Agencies "Those who killed Feruzi Zedi will pay sooner or later" one sign held by mourners read The killing came a day after a grenade attack on a busy market killed three people and injured around 40 others The attacks have dramatically worsened tensions in the crisis-hit country where a heavy-handed crackdown on the anti-government demonstrations has already left around 30 dead since late April The crisis also sparked a failed coup against President Nkurunziza last week and there are fears Burundi which only emerged from a 13-year civil war in 2006 could be plunged back into conflict Condemning the apparent assassination as "an awful act" activists said in a statement they were "suspending participation in dialogue with the government" that had been supported by the United Nations and African Union They also said the murder could have been part of an alleged "plan to physically eliminate" leaders of the campaign against Nkurunziza A journalist who witnessed the attack said the gunmen were clad in uniforms similar to those worn by the presidential guard The presidency however said it was "shocked" by the attack in which a police bodyguard was also killed and called for the perpetrators to be found and brought to justice While the streets of the capital were calm today in line with a weekend truce protesters were readying to resume the demonstrations Civil society leader

will be visiting China this year PTI Bhubaneswar: For 14 years large sections of the local media were more than happy to eat out of Naveen Patnaik’s hands They put up with the BJD supremo’s utter disdain for them – reflected in the fact that he has not addressed a single press conference or given a single interview to anybody from what he believes is the ‘mofussil’ press – without so much as a whimper It was grateful for every byte read out from a prepared text that ‘The Supreme Leader’ deigned to give after making the TV crews wait for hours It swallowed the humiliation when he even refused entertain a single question from them Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik PTI But suddenly the media appears to have found its voice again The front pages of Odia newspapers these days are full of stories scathingly critical of the government the ruling party and its leading lights something that was unthinkable even six months ago Television reporters have unshackled themselves and are back to asking the tough questions of ministers and ruling party politicians Things are much worse for the ruling party on the social media with people having whale of a time lambasting ridiculing and caricaturing the leading lights of the party The sharpest wittiest and most vicious attacks are of course reserved for the Supreme Leader What has changed so drastically over the last four months since Naveen came back to power with a thumping majority Naveen has never been a voluble man But even by his own reticent standards he has gone surprisingly quiet these last few weeks His public appearances have been few and far between On the few occasions he has ventured out his minders have made sure television cameras stay out of harm’s way and don’t get anywhere close to him Of late official announcements by the Chief Minister have been made by way of press releases from his office rather than in the form of personal appearances before the TV cameras While Naveen the Chief Minister has at least made an occasional public appearance and delivered a rare statement Naveen the BJD president has been conspicuous by his absence and deafening in his silence And this at a time when so much is happening in the party that would in normal circumstances demand his attention The de facto Number 2 in the party Rajya Sabha MP Kalpataru Das has suddenly become persona non grata in the wake of damaging revelations about cynical acquisition of property by him and his family Leader after senior leader is being hauled over the coals for their alleged involvement in some scam or the other The CBI is zeroing in on some powerful leaders in the party including ministers in the chit fund scam But the supremo has not uttered a word on any of it Like ‘Maunmohan’ Singh he has decided that silence is golden With the leader himself shying away from public glare the fear of the television cameras has spread like a contagion down the line On Monday Revenue Minister Bijayshree Routray lost his cool and assaulted a reporter when persistent TV crews badgered him for a byte on a huge piece of land in Bhubaneswar he has acquired in gross violation of rules The day after former government chief whip Pravat Tripathy turned up at the CBI office in the capital city for interrogation in connection with his role in the chit fund scam with two dozen or so supporters who looked and behaved more like bouncers in a late night bar to ensure that the booms did not get close to their leader But the dogged TV crews tailed him as he came out after a marathon six-hour long grilling and hastily made his way to his car He fell down but still did not oblige them with a byte It is this sudden aggression and doggedness of the local media more than anything else that has unnerved the ruling party – and may be its leader too Much of Naveen’s current problems of course are the result of his own reticence and lack of articulation He has always allowed others in the party and the government to do the talking on his behalf But with battle hardened party veterans like Damodar Rout Prafulla Ghadai and Kalindi Ghadai sidelined and the new crop of spokespersons (there is a team of 10 in place now) messing up things every now and then Naveen has been getting a lot of bad press of late He has tried out everything from doling out government houses to journalists to patronising an elite press club mostly comprising owners/editors but to no avail Unfortunately for the Naveen the disenchantment with him is not restricted to the media alone Suddenly the bureaucracy too has become wary of sticking its neck out for him Exasperated with his whimsical decision making and haughty manners top bureaucrats have made a beeline for the Centre Five including former chief secretary Jugal Kishore Mohapatra have already left while twice as many are anxiously waiting for their turn to move out Curiously the man who is widely believed to have hastened the departure of most of these senior bureaucrats the Chief Minister’s private secretary Karthikeyan Pandian has himself sought to move out according to reliable sources The grapevine has it that the man Naveen had handed over the reins of his government – and even the party – over the last two years or so has suddenly fallen foul of his boss Naveen apparently believes now that it is Pandian who has earned him an array of enemies including the media with his high handed handling of matters Without a family of his own Naveen Patnaik has always been a loner But with his most trusted lieutenants in the party and the government having either disgraced themselves or become disenchanted with their leader he has never been lonelier than he is now — Meghana Patil,Bangalore Engine of change Aproposthe editorial ‘Off the beaten

would roll out a stimulus or that Greece would actually elect the far-left Over the last few days both have happened The ECB flooded the market with a 11 trillion euro package and radical left Syriza has formed a coalition with the right-wing Greek Independents after falling just short of an absolute majority in Sunday’s general election The euro marked this potential turning point for the European Union and especially for the monetary union by falling to $111 against the US dollar its lowest in more than 11 years while global markets prepared for a period of likely volatility Although Syriza’s leader Alexis Tsipras insists Greece will retain the euro and cooperate with the EU on a “fair and mutually beneficial solution” his post-result rhetoric returned to the overwhelming populism of Syriza’s campaign He said the mandate “is undoubtedly cancelling the bailouts of austerity and destruction” adding that the “Troika… is a thing of the past” That troika is the EU ECB and IMF lenders who put Greece through big budgetary cuts and restructuring Tsipras had promised to write off half of Greece’s 240 billion euro debt and raise salaries Unsurprisingly from Frankfurt to Brussels Greeks had been warned against the “wrong result” and its new leaders cautioned against reneging on the country’s deals Greece has been hit hard by austerity given the job losses cutback in public services and pensions with unemployment at 255 per cent against an eurozone average of 115 per cent But with a final bailout of 72 billion euros hanging in the balance Syriza may find governing

by Neelkanth Mishra | Published: November 24 2014 12:05 am The recent debate on whether regional parties can survive is somewhat unnecessary Related News IsA 1000-employee single-city company managed the same way as a 100000-employee transnational company I recently asked this rhetorical question when an experienced foreign investor asked me why the Indian Constitution couldn’t be changed so that the new government in Delhi could overrule resistance from state governments It was a challenge to explain to him that India houses one-sixth of humanity Just because India is a country and Singapore and Thailand are also countries it doesn’t mean that the governance structures and economic solutions that worked in Singapore or Thailand will work in India too Putting it another way the state of Uttar Pradesh houses more people than Brazil another member of BRIC — that over-hyped acronym whose deserved descent into irrelevance ought to speed up The makers of India’s Constitution wise as they were had thought this through In the division of powers between the Centre and the state they restricted the Centre’s economic powers to mainly policymaking in areas such as foreign affairs and trade as well as those parts of the economy where national scale helps — for example currency banking railways national highways airlines and telecom The rest including the most important points at which businesses come in contact with government (for instance law and order land acquisition urban infrastructure and power distribution) was left to the states This is an important driver of the wide divergence in prosperity and growth between states Even the interface between government and individual citizens is largely at the state level — birth certificates driving licences irrigation electricity water education and healthcare are handled by the state governments But for most of our independent history this division of power did not deliver much change It is hard to isolate causality in complex matters such as these but an important reason for this was the control exercised by the Centre on the state through the political party Till the 1990s more than 60 per cent of India’s population lived in states ruled by chief ministers beholden to the political leadership in Delhi to keep their jobs What made it worse Their job security was usually linked to their loyalty and not necessarily to their performance as chief ministers That 60 per cent has dropped to 12 per cent State-level leaders and political parties which have “skin in the game” when it comes to development have emerged Further Article 356 of the Constitution which relates to president’s rule was also rampantly misused In the early years it was rarely used: just five times in the 1950s Then our idealism faded and its use rose steadily: 49 times in the 1970s The occupants of the throne in Delhi routinely dismissed state governments on a whim This too has changed in recent years — nearly half of this decade is over and we have seen just two instances of president’s rule Last total state government spending is now nearly 40 per cent more and is still growing faster than Central spending This is partly a result of higher revenues accruing from better tax administration and also because successive finance commissions have increased the states’ share of tax revenues These trends are already showing results Central schemes for rural roads job creation electrification and education among other things have always been around But the remarkable improvement in execution over the past decade and a half owes largely to the empowered state leader With a few exceptions state governments across political parties have learned from the BJP’s victory in May which was based on the electoral plank of good governance and growth and are now pressing the accelerator Last month’s elections in Maharashtra and Haryana would be among the rare few contested purely on the plank of good governance and growth The Brahmin chief minister of Maharashtra and the Punjabi chief minister of Haryana would have no doubt about their governance priorities A dramatic improvement in state-level governance likely driven by changing voter demands and enabled by technological advances like cheap computing mobile telephony and the internet is afoot This has all the signs of a structural change and holds great promise for India in the coming years The recent debate on whether regional parties can survive is somewhat unnecessary A local competitor may lack the resources and processes of a multi-national company but its local knowhow more than makes up for this Thus the correct question is: Which parties and leaders can step out of denial on the change in voter preferences and to use consulting jargon be the “fast follower” (for instance like a smartphone manufacturer profitably copying iPhone features) While the BJP led by Narendra Modi was clearly the first among mainstream parties to have caught wind of this change in voter aspiration parties and leaders that catch on — like they did with the post-Mandal changes in voter preference for caste — will survive while others fall by the wayside A more important question perhaps is: Can political parties that have a presence across states develop and empower state-level leaders so that they become agents of change in their respective states and yet remain within the party fold despite having the individual ability to pull votes Can such leaders assert themselves without falling foul of the central leadership After all there exists a delicate and fluid balance between the gains of unification and standardisation on one hand and those of decentralisation on the other Managers in companies regularly face this challenge Allow too much freedom to local management and they run amok ruining the brand in the local market or self-aggrandise at the expense of the company eventually venturing out on their own Tighten the strings too much and you handicap them which competitors take advantage of and you lose again A healthy balance between the two forces drives success As the powers of taxation of the Central and state governments get overhauled such a framework is also critical in thinking through the final debates on the goods and services tax (GST) The long-term gains of the GST seem quite obvious: among other things the abysmally low levels of service-tax collection could be corrected by letting state governments collect it As they know the territory better aided by technology they can improve compliance And yet the matter has dragged on for years highlighting the need for the powers of unification to assert themselves The writer is the India Equity Strategist
