Reforms, please, not stimulus - Arvind Panagariya, Times of India
A common tactic that large corporations in India have learnt to deploy effectively whenever they incur large losses is to impress upon the government that unless they are bailed out, the entire sector, even the whole economy, might run into deep trouble. I witnessed the use of this tactic first hand during my years at the Niti Aayog.
Time to defuse population bomb - Kalyani Shankar, Pioneer
Eyebrows were raised when Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed concern about the population explosion in the country in his recent Independence Day speech. There was a feeling of surprise that the Prime Minister chose to bring up an issue that has been a ‘No- No’ for many politicians from the days of Emergency when the Indira Gandhi government used coercive population control measures.
Remove the chill - RK Pachauri, Pioneer
The outcome of External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar’s visit to China has been positive, not only in terms of India explaining its stand but also clearing the air for future exchanges. The External Affairs Minister is not only a distinguished diplomat but having been India’s Ambassador to China, he knows the system and personalities whom he has to deal with.
With removal of special status, Kashmir has finally become one with India - Akhilesh Mishra, Indian Express
Syama Prasad Mookerjee, founder of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh, gave up his life fighting against Article 370. Atal Bihari Vajpayee, then a feisty young leader, while speaking in the Lok Sabha in 1968, correctly predicted the disastrous consequences of keeping this divisive provision in the Constitution.
Modi can’t be deterred by communal blackmail - Swapan Dasgupta, Pioneer
The initial excitement over the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu & Kashmir and the reorganisation of the State has given way to a more considered assessment of its implications, both domestically and externally. While there is a cautious wait-and-watch approach to how the Kashmir Valley will react once the curfew and telephone restrictions are relaxed, the consequences of Narendra Modi and Amit Shah’s political audacity are being felt in domestic politics.
Correcting a historic blunder - Ram Madhav, Indian Express
August 5, 2019, will go down in the constitutional history of India as a glorious day. A historic blunder committed about 70 years ago, on October 17, 1949 during the course of the Constituent Assembly debates has finally been set right. Article 370, which entered the draft constitution 70 years ago as Article 306A, has finally been abrogated.
Don’t kill the golden goose - Bindu Dalmia, Pioneer
In this article, I have divided my view into two parts. In the first, I have asked why the super-rich must pay their fair share in nation-building and other avenues to raise future revenues. The second half is a plea to facilitate and enthuse the industry instead of throttling India Inc, the golden goose that pays taxes and creates jobs.
Why the government’s step of demystifying Article 35 A is a welcome step - Sanjeev Nayyar, Financial Express
With the extraordinary movement of security forces in J&K and advisory to Amarnath yatris, one knew that the Modi-Shah-Doval (MSD) trio were planning something big. One thought Modi would make a historic announcement from the ramparts of the Red Fort, but home minister Amit Shah has rightfully first informed Parliament of the scrapping of Article 370.
Time to stand up for real - Deepak Sinha, Pioneer
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent electoral victory can be clearly attributed to two essential arguments that he was able to sell successfully, no matter how cosmetic the value. First, that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was a party with a difference when it came to matters of honesty and integrity. Second, it was not a family concern and had no place for dynasts.
Modi, great reformer - Amit Shah, Times of India
Some dates stand out in history. In the annals of India’s parliamentary history July 30, 2019, represents one such day. The passage of the historic triple talaq bill in Parliament’s Upper House is not just about enactment of one more law. It is about correcting a historical wrong. It is about restoring honour and dignity to Muslim women. It is about establishing gender equality.
