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.
Words without meaning - Amitabh Shukla, Pioneer
After Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s entry into active politics, our grand old party, the Congress, looks energised, motivated and has the momentum on its side to face the 2019 Lok Sabha election. Of course, it has been helped in no small measure by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which now looks jaded, carries the disadvantage of anti-incumbency and is seemingly devoid of the same energy and enthusiasm that marked the party’s campaign throughout 2013 till the 2014 general election.
Pakistan has shown no interest in addressing terror concerns - Hindustan Times
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan chose to talk about the brazen suicide attack at Pulwama only five days after the assault claimed by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed, attributing the timing to his country’s preoccupation with a crucial visit by the Saudi crown prince.
Getting a grip of Kashmir’s problem - Kalyani Shankar, Pioneer
While neighbouring Pakistan needs to be taught a lesson for sponsoring terrorist attacks in Kashmir, the need is to also address the Kashmir problem internally. There can be no doubt that there are many things that need attention, including the radicalisation of the youth in the State.
Being deceived, everytime - Prafull Goradia, Pioneer
February 14, 2019, will be remembered as the saddest day in independent India. The killing and wounding of so many Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans was tragic enough but that wasn’t all. The casualties were of innocent men travelling to perform their duty.
Stress points of democracy - MK Narayanan, Hindu
These are difficult, as also unsettling, times. It is not the complexity of issues that confront the world as much as the steady undermining of institutional and knowledge structures that are posing a threat to the world.
