have the time to meet us Aur hamaare aise karam nahin ki unse phone pe baat kar payen (we are not so fortunate that we can speak to him on phone)” “Sonia Gandhiji meets everybody but there is never

claimed (Express Photo) Related News The Delhi government was planning to increase DTC bus fares after the Metro fare hike claimed the Yogendra Yadav-led Swaraj India while citing from the Fourth Metro Fare Fixation Committee (FFC) report The Delhi government however denied the allegation and said it was a “futile attempt to mislead people” Sources said the government had asked the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) for the minutes of the meeting before the report was made Referring to the report Swaraj India said the DTC managing director (MD) and secretary-cum-transport commissioner stated that “once the Metro fares are increased fares of DTC buses would also be revised” “When asked about any proposal for fare revision by DTC the MD said after the Metro fare revision they may consider fare revision of their fleet… Therefore the committee noted that there is a need for revision of Metro fares” the report said Accusing AAP of hypocrisy the party’s chief spokesperson said “Documents make it clear that the Delhi government had made plans to increase DTC bus fares on the claim that fares of Delhi Metro have been increased The Delhi government was hand-in-glove in unjustly increasing Metro fares and now plans to hike the DTC bus fares” Swaraj India general secretary Ajit Jha said “The government was fully aware of the decision to increase Metro fares… In fact the FFC has officially said the proposal to increase DTC fares was one of the reasons behind increasing Metro fares” Denying the allegations Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot said “There is no proposal to hike DTC fares; these are lies” A government source said “They appeared to have singled out one line in the report and decided to interpret it in a certain way ‘May consider fare revision’ could also imply a fare reduction We have asked DMRC for the minutes so that the issue can be examined” The government also said that it had been attempting to reduce bus fares and that a proposal for the same was sent to and later rejected by L-G Anil Baijal The move was met with opposition with many saying it would cause losses to the DTC For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App

sarpanch, Congress attitudes to media and AAP,and Narendra Modi’s politics in this interview to P Vaidyanathan Iyer Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi has said the BJP is marketing itself better Do you think this government is lacking in communication I think it is a fair criticism that we have not communicated our achievements to the people People expect communication from the top But given the nature and the personality of our leaders at the top they have been if I may say in an understated way very media-shy Could the prime minister have come more often before the public or you as the finance minister appeared before the media more often to tell people about the government’s policies I have appeared before the media more often than any other FM in recent times On an average I address the media or a public function once a week The prime minister addressing the media is different from the finance minister or the home minister or the health minister addressing the media When the PM addresses the media he speaks for the whole government The finance minister or any other minister is limited to his portfolio It’s only occasionally we can stray and speak about other portfolios of the government but that is not usually done If the government’s overall stance and policies and approach have to be articulated and communicated that can only be done by the head of the government Let me give an example [Barack] Obama appears on television at least twice or thrice a week [David] Cameron appears before the media at least once a week India managed the global economic crisis of 2008 very well It posted good growth numbers in the following two years Subsequently though it doesn’t seem so For example over FDI in retail Mamata [Banerjee] snubbed the UPA-II government and eventually pulled out I don’t think you can compare the September 2008 crisis with the Trinamool Congress opposing FDI in retail I think they are chalk and cheese I can’t speak of the period 2009 to July 2012 because I was not in the finance ministry But since my return to the ministry we have acknowledged the difficult situation in which the Indian economy is placed and we have fought our way out of that difficult situation Can anyone deny that the economy in the last 17 months has been stabilised and the exchange rate stabilised We have added significantly to the foreign exchange reserves and we have shown determination in containing the fiscal deficit and the current account deficit So in the last 17 months we have shown the will to fight But the twin deficits did affect investor sentiment But there are at least 50 countries that have worse deficit ratios Why doesn’t anybody talk about their downgrade I maintain there was no justification at any time to talk about or hint at a downgrade for India Hasn’t the country lost significant time because of poor decision making including in the Ministry of Environment and Forests in the last couple of years There was a problem in the Ministry of Environment and Forests But I think that problem has been fixed now The prime minister has said Narendra Modi was a disaster for India Do you agree with this view I think what he meant was a BJP government headed by Shri Narendra Modi will be a very poor choice for the next government And I agree with him A BJP government headed by Shri Narendra Modi would most likely combine Luddite economics and majoritarian politics That will be a disastrous combination for India But then the Congress’s support without any conditions to the Aam Admi Party in Delhi has also resulted in a confrontational government How do you justify that That is a decision taken by the local unit of the Congress party in Delhi I think opinion was divided within the Congress whether the party should offer outside support to the AAP or not Whether it was a right decision or otherwise time will say But let me reiterate opinion was divided within the party Do you think it was a wrong decision I think it was an unnecessary decision No decision was called for We had eight seats and [were] reduced to third place We were neither voted to form the government nor voted to be the principal opposition party So we should have just kept quiet But that is my view The view that prevailed was we would extend outside support That’s the local party’s decision Arvind Kejriwal now says the Congress will regret supporting the AAP He is opening CWG files and those related to corruption charges against ministers and bureaucrats Arvind Kejriwal has made hundreds of allegations against hundreds of people If the Delhi government has material to take action against anyone — politician or civil servant — they should simply take action Why constantly speak about it I’ve noticed that Sheila Dikshit Arvinder Singh have welcomed any action that the Delhi government might take So why constantly harp on it If there is material take action In the budget ahead do you think you will be able to stick to the fiscal deficit target set in the beginning of the year I have said the red line drawn for fiscal deficit at 48 per cent of the GDP will under no circumstances be breached The prime minister has fully supported me on that matter So I can confidently assert three weeks before the budget will be presented that we will not breach the 48 per cent target for fiscal deficit set for the current fiscal It is just three four months before the country faces Lok Sabha polls Given the outcome of assembly polls in five states there is a perception that Congress has been written off I don’t agree with your perception that the Congress has been written off or will be written off We were more or less in the same position in December 2008 and January 2009 We had the September 2008 global economic crisis we had the November 2008 attack in Mumbai December 2008 and January 2009 were pretty gloomy months for the Congress party and the UPA-I Yet we won the elections in May 2009 I think it is too early to write off any political party Yes the situation appears to be difficult But the challenge before any political party is to overcome a difficult situation I think it is possible to overcome the difficult situation What degree of success we will meet I can’t say You have said a large number of seats should be given to the young… Yes I will be quite happy to give up my seat in favour of a younger candidate and campaign vigorously for that candidate Is Pondicherry a choice I have only read about it in a silly newspaper column Pondicherry has a sitting MP who is a minister I want to remind you of that Is Kanyakumari a choice I have not read about that in any silly newspaper column so far The UPA government introduced RTI launched MNREGA and expanded it and took several other policy measures aimed at benefiting the larger majority But people want more Is it putting a constraint on the UPA or on any other political party going forward It is and it will on any government One has to make a choice between consumption and investment Consumption expenditure benefits people in the short run Investment expenditure benefits people in the long run While we can’t say government resources will be spent only on supporting investment expenditure it is important to tell the people that a significant proportion of government expenditure must be for investment Unfortunately more people are easily beguiled by promises of more consumption expenditure including subsidies But that’s a fact of life If it is a fact of life it is also a fact of political life And political parties have to take note of this fact of political life Then is this the reason behind Rahul Gandhi’s promise of providing 12 subsidised cylinders to people Isn’t it true that 85 per cent of subscribers require only six cylinders a year That’s not correct The median is 65 But the petroleum ministry has told me that 90 per cent of all consumers take nine cylinders or less But there is that 10 per cent mainly in urban areas which is extremely vocal which has access to political parties and which has led the demand for raising the number from nine to 12 And you saw the support for that in the AICC gathering That’s the fact of political life And therefore the vice president of the party responded by requesting on behalf of the party that the number of cylinders be raised from nine to 12 As I said it is difficult for a political party – any political party including the Congress – to constantly or stubbornly deny the realities of political life It is said you are Rahul Gandhi’s Manmohan Singh or that you will be the next prime ministerial candidate if the party comes to power Why am I Mr Rahul Gandhi’s Manmohan Singh Mr Rahul Gandhi is the vice president and I am the finance minister Why elevate me It is also said you may be the prime ministerial candidate I don’t know how this question rears its head from time to time The party has made it clear that Shri Rahul Gandhi is the vice president of the party and therefore the number 2 in the party We made it clear he will lead the campaign in the 2014 elections And I think it is plain truth that if the Congress party is invited to form the government the government will be headed by Shri Rahul Gandhi All this is abundantly clear But the party did stay away from naming him PM candidate That exercise or that little ceremony is of interest only to the media He is the vice president of the party and number 2 The Congress president has declined to be the prime minister once before When a party goes into an election under the leadership of the vice president – after the party president has declined to be the PM – is it not plain to everyone I think it is plain to common people… This ritual of naming him the PM [candidate] — only the media is keen to witness a ceremonial coronation Why do you think people are fascinated with the phenomenon of Narendra Modi — is it because of the way he wields control over the party And is that an issue I don’t know I don’t think so Every leader of every political party in this country wields a very high degree of authority in the party Take Jayalalithaa Mayawati Mulayam Singh Yadav Mamata Banerjee Naveen Patnaik It is nothing unusual in the case of Shri Narendra Modi and his party And that is not relevant What authority a person wields in the party is not quite relevant to the discussion who should be the prime minister or who should head the government What is relevant is the nature and the character and the personality the policies of that person In Shri Narendra Modi we have someone who in most matters takes a majoritarian attitude and to make it worse has a very authoritarian style A majoritarian policy and an authoritarian style of government would be a disaster for this country Isn’t India mature enough or resilient enough to accept or live through this So did the rest of the world think that Germany is mature enough to accept majoritarian policies So did the rest of the world think in the 1930s I think one must clearly identify the danger The danger is the imposition of majoritarian politics led by an authoritarian prime minister On investment has the UPA missed the bus If the UPA has missed the bus 150 countries have missed the bus Investment has slowed down worldwide How much of it is India’s own making Partly it is our own making because we allowed our fiscal deficit limits to be breached And we allowed inflation to be entrenched at a very high level But those were unintended consequences Let me repeat those were unintended consequences of the stimulus packages that everybody in this country at that time agreed was a right medicine for the crisis that we faced Other countries have tipped over into bankruptcy We did not In some countries the economies simply collapsed It did not happen in India There was a sharp slowdown in our economy the first casualty being investment But in the last 17 months we have taken a number of corrective steps Clearly the prospects are India will get into a 6-per-cent-plus growth rate in 2014-15 The latest projections by the World Bank are India will grow 62 per cent next year There is a view in the public that ‘if Modi is to be blamed for riots there were several incidents during Congress rule too including the 1984 riots against Sikhs in Delhi Gujarat has not witnessed any riots after 2002’ Isn’t that good enough a justification There has not been a riot in Delhi after 1984 That doesn’t mean that what happened in 1984 was not wrong The Congress party has apologised for what happened in 1984 Rajiv Gandhi was prime minister for less than a day when the riots broke out Yet the Congress party apologised Mrs Sonia Gandhi apologised Dr Manmohan Singh apologised All that the people are asking is there may have been no riots post 2002 but why don’t you have the humility and grace to apologise for what happened in 2002 He had been the chief minister for several months when the riots happened And there is evidence that people in the higher echelons of the Gujarat government were either complicit in the riots or were negligent Nearly 2000 lives were lost Don’t you owe an apology Do the victims’ families deserve the contemptuous remark ‘kutte ka bachcha’ Shouldn’t someone explain why the CM said ‘for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction’ Is it not true that one of the ministers Mrs [Maya] Kodnani has been convicted and is serving a jail sentence So let’s not rationalise what happened in 2002 by referring to subsequent years We’re focused on 2002 and I think the person who was the head of the government in 2002 owes an apology for what happened in 2002 So if an apology is given is it good enough It is not good or bad An apology a genuine apology genuine contrition will assuage the feelings of the victims’ families But now there is no hope that such a genuine apology will be forthcoming from Shri Narendra Modi For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related NewsMichael Paul Gallagher SJ returned from Italy to Ireland recently to spend some of the summer and already the
