Opinion/Commentary
Civilisational heritage - Sandhya Jain, Pioneer
The anger in Assam and North-eastern States over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 is understandable but not justified. All these States must appreciate that Indian citizenship is a continuum of their civilisational heritage within the Indian Republic.
Demystifying Rafale riddle - Pathikrit Payne, Pioneer
The debate surrounding the purchase of 36 Rafale jets by the Modi Government from Dassault Aviation has one critical element that needs to be mentioned. It was an emergency purchase necessitated by the dwindling fleet of the IAF, massive fleet augmentation by both Pakistan and China in the last decade and negotiations between Dassault and HAL over production of Rafale in India reaching a dead end. The 36 fighters or two squadrons, one each for the western and eastern fronts, are expected to contain the downslide of the IAF fleet even as negotiations continue for bigger deals.
Anatomy of a heat shield - RK Pachauri, Pioneer
In December, 2018 a two-week long event took place in Katowice, Poland, which represented the 24th Conference of Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. It is relevant to know that COP24 made some headway, despite some serious and disturbing developments on the part of the US, Saudi Arabia and Russia.
Taxed through trade policies, farmers need stable income policy - Ashok Gulati, Indian Express
The Narendra Modi government is entering its proverbial “last 10 overs”. All the stops are being pulled to win over targeted segments of society that could potentially bring the BJP/NDA back to office. One important segment, perhaps the largest one, is that of farmers.
The Trump possibility - Ishan Joshi, Pioneer
Of all the speeches, tweets and off-the-cuff remarks which together constitute President Donald J Trump’s articulation of the US’ global policy priorities and ideological positions (or lack thereof), there has never been one that defines his presidency more than his address to the United Nations in end-2017.
The seats around the Afghan round table - Rakesh Sood, Hindu
One year ago, on New Year’s Day, the Indian establishment welcomed U.S. President Donald Trump’s tweet: “The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollar in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!”
A fractured negotiation - Ashok K Mehta, Pioneer
From an Indian perspective, Afghanistan turned out to be the flavour of the fourth edition of the Raisina Dialogue at New Delhi, which, compared to other international dialogues, is still in its infancy, given that it was flagged off as one of the three or four universal concerns/hot spots.
Historical injustice - A Surya Prakash, Pioneer
Ever since the Narendra Modi Government moved the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 in the Winter Session of Parliament to provide critical support to the adherents of Indic religions, who face virtual extermination in neighbouring Islamic nations like Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan, the usual pseudo-secular suspects have crawled out of the woodwork and once again raised the hackneyed argument about how ‘Secular India’ can make special provision for the persecuted Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and Jains in India’s neighbourhood.
In UP Mahagathbandhan, a star negotiator and Mayawati's veto on Congress - Sunetra Choudhury, NDTV
As the alliance between Uttar Pradesh rivals Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) gets to work for the national election ahead, the role of a new negotiator has emerged. If Mayawati's key aide SC Mishra handled the negotiations for the BSP, Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Seth was the pointsperson for Akhilesh Yadav.
10% quota nips in bud pro-reservation protest - Swapan Dasgupta, Pioneer
Among the many points raised as objections to the 124th Constitution Amendment Bill to enable means-tested reservations was the contention that it was a direct consequence of the BJP’s defeat in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh.
