and Amit Shah does not exactly have a reputation of throwing cold water on conflict The sources of violence on the ground are complex Let us even grant that the prime minister cannot comment on every matter But he is acting like the Congress in two ways He has failed to publicly draw clear red lines on what his partymen can and cannot say and inevitably the worst in his party will shape the public narrative and induce fear His job is to encourage voices of conciliation and to use his office to transform public culture for the better This is far from happening Former prime minister Manmohan Singh’s silences created the vacuum that anyone could fill Can this prime minister name one action that sends a loud and clear message about what kind of conduct will not be tolerated Has he used any incident to create a teachable moment There is a kind of out of touch complacency that somehow this small-scale violence will not snowball into something big But this is a poison that once unleashed cannot be controlled The second big narrative setback has been on India’s commitment to globalise The prime minister’s neighbourhood policy seems for the moment sure-footed though he will have to deliver agreements fast before this moment vanishes But the BRICS notwithstanding the larger signal India is sending on two of the most important economic issues trade and climate change are not impressive India’s food security options need to be protected The government also inherited a structural mess in agriculture one whose contours the BJP also supported But grandstanding on the Trade Facilitation Agreement is bad politics for a number of reasons: India risks global isolation on this issue We are sending a huge anti-reform signal: that we will use our farmers as a shield not to improve our processes Admittedly this is a complex issue; but the government seems unable to communicate concrete options well The “just say no” strategy also seems to afflict our stance on climate change The challenge in both areas is that the world is moving fast The looming prospect of a Transatlantic Free Trade Area and Trans-Pacific Partnership has induced far-reaching changes in China’s stance on trade; and a US-China deal on climate change is not beyond possibility The main shift we need to bring in both trade and climate change is from thinking dogmatically to thinking strategically in ways that benefit us both at home and abroad All our global ambitions will come to nought if these two issues are not handled with thought and imagination The third narrative setback is that what is passing off as administrative reform in this government is taking more shortcuts The ministry of environment and forests is setting up the government for a big fall Its public narrative is constantly emphasising speed over credibility and rather than projecting a more believable environmentalprotection regime it seems to be weakening the protections that exist This will not just have adverse consequences for the environment and the poor it will also create greater uncertainty for business as courts will have more reason to look at the government with suspicion on this score But this is just an example of the regime not getting that shortcuts are short-sighted; in all likelihood we will see the same fiasco in HRD There is also some fancy hoodwinking Corruption remains a central issue but any anti-corruption measures that bypass legislative institutions are going to fail The big failure of the last decade was parliamentary collusion where committees like the Public Accounts Committee were rendered moribund by all-round collusion Instead of furtive administrative measures all the government needs to do is promise to restore political accountability CAG reports should not be the last word on any subject but we indicted the last government for not responding to them adequately Will this government respond to them The BJP government could make a start by responding to the recently released CAG reports on losses to the exchequer in Gujarat We have settled into the very familiar pattern of avoiding the obligation to explain On the economy the government has at best put in an ordinary performance It conveys the sense of a series of small tactics but no overall strategy One measure of this is that economists most sympathetic to its possibilities from Bibek Debroy to Arvind Panagariya are openly expressing deep disappointment It is probably a measure of how quickly the government has gone out of touch that this message will not deeply register in its consciousness It was unrealistic to expect big bang reforms or sharp ideological shifts Quite the contrary what is needed is a little clarity honesty common sense and sense of purpose The government is at this moment failing to project these qualities It has quickly descended into an odd combination of trifles bureaucratic crosshairs alibis risk averseness and a shadowy politics of stealth As if to symbolically underscore its continuity it has even obliged with a possible bugging scandal If the prime minister does not come out swinging soon in a way that can become an exemplar this government’s credibility too will be done in by that ultimate weapon of passive resistance: whispers in the corridors The writer is president Centre for Policy Research and contributing editor for ‘The Indian Express’ [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsAn AAP Minister has demanded a law for "public" killing of rapists saying they should be treated as "terrorists" while also advocating the need to give arms training to women Delhi Culture Minister Kapil Mishra made the comments in his blog in the wake of the Bulandshahar gangrape incident which he said "can happen to anyone anytime" In last one year "450 minor girls" have been raped in the national capital Mishra claimed "I have been against death penalty for a long time but I want to say that rapists are terrorists and they should be treated like one" ".give arms and arms training to all girls and women Let them kill those who try to rape them let them kill their rapists Give exemplary punishment Parliament should pass a special law following the Bulandshahar incident and rapists should be killed publicly" Mishra wrote Mishra AAP’s Karawal Nagar MLA and one of its most vocal leaders said age bar for trying should be done away with while dealing with sexual offenders as "if one is old enough to rape he is old enough to be punished like adults" He demanded that identity of criminals who have raped or sexually harassed a female should be made public "The burden of the crime should fall on the criminal and not the victim" With inputs from PTI
