In fact,Written by Agencies | Srinagar | Published: July 27 Pro-Iranian militia groups are at the forefront of the war to reverse the occupation of the Sunni heartland in Iraq by the ISIS. Saudi Arabia has watched with dismay as Baghdad moved steadily closer to Tehran and has been reluctant to accommodate the interests of the Sunni minority in Iraq In Bahrain the situation is the opposite where the monarchy representing the Sunni minority has sought to repress the Shia majority Saudi Arabia has accused Iran of fomenting trouble in Bahrain and sent in a military force into the kingdom in to shore up the government in March 2011 Saudi air strikes against the Houthi rebels in the last few days like the military action in Bahrain is rooted in deep fears about Iran’s growing power in the region The political and military challenge in Yemen is much tougher than the one that Saudi Arabia faced four years ago in Bahrain Saudi Arabia has mobilised a number of fellow Arab governments in including those in Bahrain Egypt Jordan Kuwait Morocco Qatar Sudan and the United Arab Emirates Riyadh is also pressing Pakistan to join the Sunni intervention in Yemen Whatever the immediate outcome in Yemen’s civil war the sectarian tensions in the region and the proxy wars between Saudi Arabia and Iran are likely to become more intense in the coming years But India has shown little sensitivity to the changing political dynamic in the Middle East Delhi continues to view the region from the perspective of the Arab-Israeli conflict that no longer is the primary contradiction

Guard encountered a boat which blew up under mysterious circumstances outside Indian waters last December Union Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has been promising to make the facts of the case public Now his promise gains fresh urgency following Coast Guard DIG BK Loshali’s expansive claim that he had ordered the boat to be blown up Loshali then went into denial until this newspaper released the video of his address Now Parrikar is trying to reduce this to a “disciplinary issue” but the truth is a matter of national importance From Parrikar himself it was learnt that the occupants of the boat offered the Coast Guard no resistance Nor has any official claim been made that the boat’s crew were engaged in a criminal act In that case what was their status and how were they dealt with over 150 nautical miles outside the limits of Indian law The events around the case too raise concerns on multiple counts First spokespersons for the ruling party as well as the ministry of defence sought to harvest political capital from the case by claiming to have averted a 26/11-style attack The price for political point-scoring though is the erosion of India’s credibility on future well-founded claims it might make on terrorism cases Then India’s violation of international law which permits the use of force outside territorial waters only in self-defence leaves New Delhi with little room to complain next time Indian fishing crews or vessels are targeted by hostile nations Then there’s the question of morale: honest hard-working military officials don’t for obvious reasons like questionable operations which may be exploited for political ends Little that the government has said so far has persuasive heft Parrikar has among other things claimed that the Coast Guard maintained a kilometre’s distance from the crew at all times — and at once that the crew committed suicide when cornered possibly by consuming cyanide His ministry says the boat was outrunning the Coast Guard — an arithmetical impossibility given their relative speeds and the distance of the chase The incident has been under a pall of doubt right from the beginning and the government’s conjectures have only muddied the waters further Now following the ebullient confession of the DIG of the Coast Guard the credibility of the government’s version has been put in serious doubt At a time when the government is committed to making progress in the dialogue with Pakistan when clarity and certainty are vital coin in the diplomatic exchange such a situation can be an expensive embarrassment For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | Mumbai | Published: May 22 2017 6:07 pm Sanjay Dutt recently wrapped up Bhoomi Related

increasing debt financing (deficit) is not sustainable So we must accept sustainable growth which is prudently funded The fiscal deficit at 55 per cent approximately (expected) is high and must be brought down to acceptable levels We also cannot have two Indiasthe haves and the have-nots Financial inclusion is an economicpolitical and social necessity So we need the perfect budget which strikes the optimum balance between growthequity and fiscal deficit A bit like the holy grailmuch desired but perpetually elusive The way around the problem of diverse pulls and pressures in budget-making is to build a nonpartisannationwide consensus on the urgent need for fiscal rectitude within a paradigm of democratic capitalism with a conscience What are some of the specific measures that we need Deficit reduction based on history works best when it is achieved through a combination of spending cuts and higher taxes The biggest bang comes through sharp reduction in what economists call non merit subsidies (middle class) However politically sensitive it may beit is critical to move to a regime where the middle classes pay market rates for a vast range of goods/ services such as oilgaselectricitywatereducationtravelfoodetc Better to pay as you go than suffer later The popular argument that trying to prune subsidies for the middle class could hurt the really poor and deserving does not hold as most subsidies do not reach intended beneficiaries The key contributor to fiscal deterioration is subsidy the Central government subsidies in 2008-09 were 24 per cent of GDP To put it in perspectivethis is higher than defence expenditurecapital expenditure and pay/ allowances/ pensions of government employees put together The food subsidy bill is Rs 56000 crore Do these reach the intended beneficiaries Minimum support prices are raised because of pressure from the politically powerful and the government then has two options: raise issue prices in public distribution or let the subsidy bill go up Since the former is so clearly regressivethe government settles for the latter The small farmer does not benefit The benefits of oil subsidies flow disproportionately to the middle classes and go directly against the goal of conservation Unless prices are aligned with the marketthis will be the biggest drag on the fisc in the long term and will also encourage wasteful consumption while discouraging exploration and investment How do we increase tax collections It is possible to de-link tax rates from the governments tax take The existence of a large parallel economy estimated at anywhere between 30 and 50 per cent of GDP means that tax collections can be increased by bringing this vast pool of transactions and income in the tax net The computerisation of indirect taxes like excise has paid off in increasing their buoyancy Againthe combination of technology and data can increase revenues significantly without even touching tax rates or possibly even lowering them Structures like the Goods and Services Tax (GST) combine the use of technology and automatic monitoring of transactions so that all the stagesbetween the factory gate and the ultimate point of purchase by the consumerare caught in the tax net The Direct Tax Code (DTC) does away with the myriad exemptions and rebates in direct taxes and thus dilutes the influence of diverse lobbies that currently influence policy-setting for direct taxes and result in gross inefficiencies in the tax structure Both these have to be ushered in with a sense of urgency In factraising income tax rates for the top income might yield political brownie points but it makes for bad economics It would affect income tax collections only at the margin Income taxes are itself a relatively small18 per cent of total tax collections going by budget estimates for 2011-12 Thus the impact of raising tax rates for the upper income brackets is likely to be small Income tax rates in the Scandinavian economies are high Yet diverse surveys have shown that Scandinavians do not resent paying high taxes because they see their governments as a customer-centric service provider This customer-centric approach revolutionised Indian business and the economy moved from a supply-constrained model to a consumer demand-driven model This model must now extend to government We must fix standards of customer service for functions performed by the state for the benefit of citizens These standards should be monitored and there should be a complaint redress mechanism and punishment for wrong behaviour The use of technology can ensure proper time-boundresult-oriented implementation Studies have shown that a combination of cost reduction and tax efficiency can easily add a percentage point to GDP Thus

last season’s table toppers are sitting right at the bottom in the points table with just one win under their belt While Kolkata would be seeking to continue their winning streak Gujarat must be looking to turn fortunes at the Eden gardens The last time when the two teams met Kolkata Knight Riders demolished Gujarat Lions and grabbed a thumping 10-wicket win over them in Rajkot Skipper Gautam

isn’t a major concern With the kind of behaviour that the Eden track has shown the KKR side can continue with the same bowling line up with some minor changes Kuldeep Yadav returned with figures of 25/2 in 4 overs when Kolkata last took on Gujarat Though he looked a bit out of form in the last game he played Kuldeep still has the ability of causing problems in the opposition camp with his bowling (Results | Fixtures | Points Table) For Gujarat Lions it is going to be a tough call to make to pick their best XI The batting performance in the last game showed that the Gujarat side are capable of handling pressure but the bowling has become a cause of concern for them Brendon McCullum has given good starts to Gujarat in the previous games too while stepping up of youngsters like Ishan Kishan is an added advantage to their line up as far as the batting is concerned Apart from the two Suresh Raina and Dinesh Karthik gave a solid partnership in the last match they played against KKR Raina went on to register a half century while Karthik extracted 25 balls for his 47 runs Karthik so far has been a decent customer for the Lions in the competition and would be looking to replicate his previous outing at the Eden Gardens Limitations Kolkata Knight Riders don’t really need to make changes but an alteration in the bowling department might be seen in this upcoming game Gujarat Lions need some extra ordinary stuff from their bowling line up Failure of bowlers like Ravindra Jadeja and Andrew Tye with the ball proved costly for the Suresh Raina-led side in the last game when they leaked runs at a huge economy rate Players to watch out Sunil Narine’s economical bowling against Delhi Darevdevils did a lot of damage and restricted them to a lesser total while Manish Pandey’s current form makes him a batsman to watch out for On the other hand Brendon McCullum’s batting has been aesthetic while Ishan Kishan’s display with the willow in the last game showed
