Cross hurdles to win the race - Kalyani Shankar, Pioneer
The Pulwama terror attack has certainly diverted the attention from earlier issues like Rafale, jobs and agriculture crisis. The Opposition faces the challenge of not only changing the national security narrative but also the BJP’s communicative strategy.
India’s digital revolution - Arvind Panagariya, Times of India
While digital technology now touches most Indians, there is insufficient appreciation of how far India has come within a short period. Digital infrastructure has greatly reduced friction in transactions whether financial or otherwise. This infrastructure and what will be built on it in the near future promise significant productivity gains.
Reclaim self-confidence - Prafull Goradia, Pioneer
Many an onlooker would be laughing at the manner in which India has dealt with the Ram Janmabhoomi issue. Until 1947, it was understandable that the Hindus held no trumpcard to win at Ayodhya, but why the lackadaisical handling of the issue thereafter? In 1949, the local court allowed the mahants to place the idol of Rama on the chabutara so that the worshippers would have access to the deity.
Pakistan in meltdown mode - Sandhya Jain, Pioneer
Opposition parties and their choirboys are understandably unenthusiastic about post-Pulwama developments, especially the prompt return of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman,  because a regime that seemed doomed in the forthcoming general elections will now enjoy the incumbent’s advantage. While it would be premature to state that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) under Prime Minister Narendra Modi will have a walkover, it is undeniable that a second retaliatory strike for attacks emanating from Pakistani soil has changed the national mood.
Right to disparage Modi’s Pak feats! - Swapan Dasgupta, Pioneer
The return of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman to India from Pakistani custody last Thursday evening was met by a combination of release and celebration in India. Relief because, in the light of what happened to some Indian soldiers during the Kargil war of 1999, there were understandable concerns over his safety and well-being. Ironically, the videos of Abhinandan capture and subsequently, which Pakistan attempted to use for propaganda purposes, may have ensured that nothing untoward happened to him.
What Pak stands to lose - Prafull Goradia, Pioneer
In 1948, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Sir Muhammad Zafarullah Khan, declared that on April 1, 1948 India turned off the water of the Indus river which used to flow into Pakistan… India exercised this control upon the waters of rivers flowing through its territory…India turned off every drop of water which Pakistan had formerly received.
The sticky road ahead - DK Jamwal, Pioneer
The situation in Kashmir has become frighteningly dangerous. The seeds of terrorism and radicalisation sown in the 1980s under the nasty craftsmanship of Gen Zia-ul Haq has started bearing fruit. Over the years, the ground situation has changed drastically from domination by foreign terrorists to home-grown ones; with the masters comfortably remote-controlling the situation from Pakistan and providing funds, arms and ammunition, alongside subversion, propaganda and political rhetoric.
Healing an angry nation’s wounds - Dr Ashutosh Misra, Pioneer
It will be an apt description of India of the 21st Century — a nation angry with itself. However, after a long time in recent memory, overcoming the deep political, social and regional chasms, the nation stands as one. It marks the advent of a long overdue healing, although tragically sparked by the unfortunate loss of 41 central reserve police force brave hearts.
Politics on Pulwama is to hold India back - Swapan Dasgupta, Pioneer
Politics is said to be ugly but there are occasions it can get ridiculous. The Pulwama bombing of February 14 that martyred 44 CRPF jawans should, ideally, have injected a note of sombreness in public life. Initially that seemed to be happening with the Government and the Opposition speaking in one voice against the terror attacks.
2019 alliance math — road to nowhere - Surjit S Bhalla, Indian Express
They say that a week is a long time in politics, so what might a month be? In January, opinion polls were sanguine, and unanimous, about a hung Parliament. The range of seats, regardless of the polling organisation, was 80-120 seats for the Congress and 180-220 for the BJP. If one took the central tendency, then the Congress with 100 seats was a better bet as the lead party in the next government.
