inaugurated a campaign for Prime Ministership The BJP/NDA could barely get its act together for the Presidential nomination Yet BJP is way ahead in its quest for power in 2014 Or rather some of its leaders are The unseemly haste to crown Narendra Modi as prime minister designate is surprising All indications until very recently were that neither of the two national parties will get many seats in 2014; my own guess is that together they will get fewer than the 283 they got in 2004 Congress will lose the extra 50 or 60 seats that Manmohan Singh brought to it in 2009 thanks to his high profile from the US nuclear deal and his image as a reformer Reform has not been Congresss agenda in UPA-II It is about inclusive developmentie spending rather than growing So Congress can kiss those seats good bye unless a miracle happens in the next two years to revive growth back to above 8 per cent and inflation falls below 5 per cent But it is not clear that the seats lost to Congress will gravitate to BJP Narendra Modi intends no doubt to run as the man who has delivered growth with 100 per cent electrificationgood infrastructure and sustainable environmental policies His detractors harp on the inequity of what Muslims get in Gujarat andof coursethe 2002 riots On the equity for Muslimsthe record is dismal across all parties The Sachar Commissions report showed the gap after nearly sixty years of secular rule The latest attempt to legislate 45 per cent quota for Muslims shows that desperation is setting in The problem is that the Indian polity does not deal with the root causes of poverty or inequality in terms of healtheducation and skills and particularly all year round employment in modern industry but throws money at whichever group it wants to placate to make the poverty palatable The roots of Muslim backwardness are in the educational underachievement which has been obvious since the day of Sir Syed Ahmad It is more serious in the Gangetic plain than in the South or in the West But that is also where the largest proportion of Muslims live For fifty yearsCongress ruled and impoverished UP and Bihar thanks to the orthodox Brahmin leadership The OBCs and Dalits have clawed back some gains by political action outside Congress control But the Muslims remain captives of the secular parties Of courseall parties are secular RSS tells us that Hindutva is secular If that is the casethen the word is meaningless The election of 2014 will be a noisy one but if it gets distracted by the secular question then the voters will lose out What India needs is a pivotal decision on whether it wants to get out of poverty on a sustainable basis This would require rapid re-industrialisation which would employ millions of people wasting away in rural poverty It would require creditable outcomesnot just plans and schemes for infrastructure development It shouldbut I doubt it woulddevelop an anti-discrimination policy built on objective measures of disadvantage than the current casteist Mandal criteria It will need an educational infrastructure less heavily burdened by bureaucratic regulations and more open to innovations Neither of the two big parties can deliver such policies Rahul Gandhi will no doubt run on an Indira Gandhi Garibi Hatao slogan and have just as much success in removing poverty that his grandmother had Narendra Modi will fail because he cannot bring himself to be genuinely seculareven of a RSS type He does not want to show any remorse for what happened on his watch in 2002 India cannot have a prime minister who does not care about its largest minority India will have to pension off both parties and choose an eclectic coalition of parties which have achieved much at State levels The third party option is the most attractive one Pranabda can do the math of who has the majority in 2014 For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express Web Desk | Updated: July 16 2017 2:22

his decision to not apply for India’s head coaching role “I to’ed and fro’ed I had days where I thought ‘right I’m definitely applying for it I’m going to have a crack and see how far I get’ “Other days where I wasn’t so sure In the end I just felt I wasn’t quite ready for that opportunity “I think it would have been a wonderful job and I congratulate Ravi Shastri on getting that job “Maybe one day in a couple of years that’d be something I’d seriously consider” he said While India’ head coach position has been taken up by Ravi Shastri Sri Lankan team are in a hunt of a new head coach after

one of my favourite places to tour as a player I loved playing cricket there I love the country it’d be a fantastic job “But and this is with all due respect they haven’t had a history of sticking with their coaches for too long so that would definitely be in the back of all coaches’ minds “The recent history over last five or so years there’s been a high turnover of coaches so that certainly would be in the back of coaches’ minds – it’d be in the back of my mind” he said Talking about getting the job the former Australian bowler suggested that it depends upon how a coach thinks he can make a difference “You’ve always just got to have an approach to just select the best guy” he said “If it’s a local guy it’s a local guy If it’s an international then so be it “You certainly don’t want to get up in the politics of all that All you can do as a coach is present your case on how you think you can make a difference and help the team perform better “If you’re the best man for the job then you should get offered that opportunity “Speaking as a coach you only want to be judged on whether you think you can make a difference and help the side and that’s how it should be We’ll have to wait and see on what jobs come up in the future” he added For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsNew Delhi: In a strong message
