as Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the initiative with a broom in his hand Two-and-a-half years later the former NDMC safai karamchari wonders how he or his community is yet to benefit from it “Such a huge campaign was launched from here a colony where everyone is a safai karamchari but there has not been much progress since then” he says On Thursday as the NDMC ranking fell from 4 to 7 in the Swachh Surveshan 2017 residents blamed it on lack of jobs and an absence or delayed provision of basic gear “We use old bedsheets from our houses to pick up garbage; it takes a lot of push to get hold of gloves and masks for the job; and often we don’t get them at all We are overworked there just aren’t enough people employed to do the job” says 60-year-old Raju who retired last year Irrespective of all the problems Valmiki Colony is rather spick and span “No one understands cleanliness like we doThis is one of the cleanest colonies in the city from even before the campaign began” says 55-year-old Rekha Officials at the NDMC on the other hand maintain that the ranking fell due to participation of more cities in Swachh Surveshan this year “The Council bagged the fourth position in 2016 among 73 participating cities while in 2017 it ranked seventh out of the 434 that were in the fray of the Swachh Survekshan 2017 conducted by the Urban Development Ministry However in 2014 the

and the degree of its strategic trust Related News By:Lu Yang Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to India his first since he assumed office in March 2013 has now come to an end Xi’s trip was the first state visit by a Chinese president to India in eight years The last stop in Xi’s four-nation tour in Central and South Asia it was the most important and the interaction between Xi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the last few days set a positive tone for ties between the two countries Xi’s India visit should be understood in the context of China’s new periphery diplomacy strategy for the next 5-10 years The Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee convened a neighborhood diplomacy conference in October last year marking the beginning of Xi’s periphery diplomacy which is based on the principles of qin (amity) cheng (sincerity) hui (benefit) and rong (inclusiveness) Xi also put forward a series of important cooperation initiatives such as the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st century Maritime Silk Road — “one belt and one road” — and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank These reflect China’s commitment to bringing more benefits to its neighbours and contributing to common development through its own growth Given that China shares most land boundaries with South Asian countries it is natural that the region’s importance will continuously increase under these new initiatives India is the most significant piece on China’s South Asian chessboard Despite the dissonance between the warm welcome laid out by Modi for Xi and the congruent standoff along the India-China border the dispute was not allowed to overshadow the spirit of cooperation blooming between the two countries Both leaders seem to be pragmatic in their wish to establish deeper bilateral ties with economic development a major shared concern If Modi needs growth to deliver on his promise of “achhe din” China too is at a critical juncture It is Xi’s mission to secure domestic stability and keep up the steady growth of China’s economy In that vein compared with previous high-level visits many of the bilateral agreements signed this time allow China to make massive investments in India’s infrastructure and manufacturing sectors For years this was stymied by New Delhi’s security concerns China runs huge trade surpluses with India more because of the Indian demand for cheap Chinese goods than any conscious policy on the part of the Chinese This imbalance can only be addressed if the volume of India’s exports to China is enhanced and increasing Chinese investment in India is one way to do so Moreover overcapacity in industry has threatened China’s growth and it needs to relocate manufacturing sectors in countries where labour costs are lower The agreements on railways and industrial parks and the five-year trade and economic development plan could be the building blocks for mutually beneficial economic cooperation in the long run Among Beijing’s main expectations from this visit was the hope that Delhi would clarify its position on the Bangladesh-China-India-Myanmar (BCIM) Economic Corridor and give China concrete support since the BCIM is an integral part of Xi’s “one belt and one road” project China views India’s position on the BCIM as a barometer of its attitude towards Beijing’s South Asia policy and the degree of its strategic trust There was a positive response at least at the rhetorical level as Modi remarked that “India believes that reconnecting Asia is important for its collective prosperity” whilewelcoming Xi But how cooperation on the BCIM will evolve remains to be seen China also reiterated its support for India’s aspiration to play a more active role in the UN and the Security Council and it will support Delhi’s membership to the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation Although the border issue will continue to hinder India-China relations and true political trust will be impossible to establish in the absence of a settlement there is enough space to develop cooperation on common concerns Shortly before Xi’s visit Modi coined a new terminology to describe India-China relations — “inch (India-China) towards miles (millennium of exceptional synergy)” This adequatelydescribes the development ofIndia-China relations over the past two decades: though there were tensions and ups and downs the general tendency was towardsintensified contact and communication between the two Asiangiants We cannot expect one high-level visit to result in a major step forward But the accumulation of small steps could lead to a grander vision In a speech at the Indian Council of World Affairs Xi said “One who wishes to be successful seeks to help others to be successful One who wishes to be understood understands others” The political leaders of India and China are taking the initiative to foster a shared culture based on reciprocity and common interests Hopefully a deeper understanding of each other could lead to a better future The writer is a political scientist at the South Asia Institute University of Heidelberg Germany [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download

government that has political parties which share a history of animosity Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal will need to be more flexible and accommodating He is indeed making extra efforts to match his often repeated words — that he has learnt from his mistakes during his first eight-month long tenure as prime minister in 2008 — in deed At home he has become less acerbic and critical towards the Opposition And he seems eager to strike a “balanced relationship” with Nepal’s two neighbours Even before he could appoint a new foreign affairs minister Dahal dispatched his two deputy prime ministers KB Mahara and Bimalendra Nidhi as special emissaries to Beijing and New Delhi respectively to convey his desire to have a balanced relationship with both the countries and to seek support for Nepal’s economic growth and development The emissary diplomacy comes at a time when New Delhi has been unable to conceal its happiness over the exit of KP Oli who it perceived to be pro-China from the PM’s office China however is visibly concerned about the fate of its involvement in Nepal including in constructing the country’s first international airport outside the capital Besides enhancing trade and transit relations China has been promoting the image that for Nepal “China is indeed a friend in need” However China appears uneasy and suspicious about the future of its projects after the change of guard in Kathmandu Expectedly the Chinese leaders including Prime Minister Li Keqiang raised these concerns when Mahara visited them Mahara assured them that Nepal will implement and honour all the agreements and understanding arrived at when Oli was prime minister China also made it clear that while it is in favour of Kathmandu strengthening its ties with New Delhi there was no question of Beijing retreating from Nepal Beijing promised to continue its projects and facilitate Nepal’s development but indicated that this would be easier if there was political stability in Kathmandu Most importantly despite the emerging perception that India is back in the driving seat of Nepali politics the proposed visit of Chinese president Xi Jinping to Kathmandu is on as per schedule So what is the rationale behind Dahal starting his stint as PM by sending emissaries to neighbours Prime Minister Dahal told this columnist that he wanted to maintain balanced relations with both and dispel the impression that Nepal was moving closer to one neighbour and provoking the other A day before Deputy Prime Minister Nidhi left for Delhi Indian ambassador Ranjit Rae announced that the dates and details of the visit of Prime Minister Dahal and President Bidhya Devi Bhandari to India and that of Indian President Pranab Mukherjee to Nepal the first such visit since President KR Narayanan in 1997 will be worked out soon Nepal’s current political actors — in the government and in opposition — who have been part of an agreement that India mediated in late 2005 feel more comfortable with Mukherjee who played an active role then as a Congress minister than with Prime Minister Modi who they suspect to be less enthusiastic about Nepal’s journey towards becoming a secular republic But President Mukherjee is only a constitutional head However his visit when he has just an year to go in Raisina Hill is likely to signal that despite India being blamed for micro-managing affairs in Kathmandu post 2006 the BJP government is not contemplating any significant changes in its Nepal policy Dahal may not raise the issue of “micro-management” for now But the lack of trust or respect for India is not confined to “Hill or Kathmandu elites” as a section of Indian policy makers have been claiming The sentiment is prevalent across regions including in Madhes especially after the economic blockade that resulted in the shortage of essential goods last year Following Nidhi’s visit to New Delhi the frequency of VVIP visits to both capitals is likely to increase But it is too early to guess how much clout and respect India is likely to gain vis a vis China in Nepal Moreover political stability in Nepal which both India and China emphasise can’t be ensured merely through a diplomatic balancing act It callsfor involving the people of the hills mountains and Madhes in settling the contentious issues in the constitution [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News

threats via post signed by ‘Abu Zarqawi’ (Representational Image) Related News IS founder Abu Musab al-Zarqawi may have been killed in 2006 but extortion letters signed off with the dreaded terrorist’s name have come back to haunt female dentists in the tony Calangute-Candolim beach belt in North Goa also known for its booming dental tourism practice Police sources claim that at least five women dentists over the last few months have received extortion threats via post demanding protection money to the tune of Rs 1 crore to Rs 2 crore failing which they have been threatened with death Speaking to IANS Rachna Fernandes one of the dentists who has received such a threat by post said she received two letters both signed off with the name Abu Zarqawi making demands for Rs 2 crore failing which “six bullets would be pumped into her body” The extortionist also demanded that she put up a white coloured cloth outside her clinic as a sign that she had acquiesced to the demand to shell out the money “It is shocking that such a thing could happen to dentists as a community in Goa” Fernandes said She received her first extortion threat by post in May this year following which Fernandes filed a First Information Report at the Calangute police station which was registered under section 507 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code Dental tourism is a booming industry in Goa which sees nearly half a million foreign tourists visiting the shores every year With the cost of dental procedure comparatively cheaper in Goa than in European countries where most of the foreign tourists arriving in the coastal state hail from dentists in the tourist-belt of Calangute-Candolim have been doing brisk business especially during the tourism season The dental tourism boom could have “inspired” the mysterious extortionist who signs off as ‘Abu Zarqawi’ to identify dentists as a potential target Incidentally most of the dentists who have received the threat from the extortionist are women “As a dental professional we have so many walk-in customers and there is a high accessibility factor The extortion threat has really alarmed me and our colleagues And the fact that there is a second letter signed off by the same person it is alarming” another female dentist who has received the threat told IANS on condition of anonymity Yet another dentist said that despite repeated visits to the police imploring them to get to the bottom of the extortion threats has proved unsatisfactory “As far as we know there has been no headway in the investigation The second letter only proves that the police have not been able to track down the accused” another dentist who too has received the extortion threat said when contacted The contents of both extortion letters include details about the movements of the victims and says that they are under observation and failure to shell out the money would result in elimination Fernandes claims that the letters have created an unsavoury atmosphere for working professionals from a particular section in this case dentists to ply their ware “It really affects your work and robs your peace of mind” she said When contacted Police Inspector Jivba Dalvi attached to the Calangute police station confirmed the serial extortion attempt “We have been taking the investigation seriously We have also questioned the postmaster in Calangute and several others Police patrolling near the clinics of the victims has also been increased” Dalvi told IANS Dalvi said the police were trying to ascertain the identity of the sender of the extortion letters “We know Zarqawi is dead We are working on several angles to see who could be actually using the name to threaten the dentists” the official said For all the latest Goa News download
