but the packaging of the raid,which is unraveling by the day while there is radio silence from Modi himself #DespiteBeingThePM Narendra Modi PTI The Myanmar raid had all the hallmarks of that Osama assassination Like America India wanted to prove that someone who brought terror to it was not safe no matter where they were holed up Like America India wanted to show they could conduct a daring operation with speed precision and without any casualty on their side with top-notch intelligence And while the SEALs got the credit for the operation Obama reaped the benefit of being the one who took the risk in greenlighting it India’s junior I&B minister Rajyavardhan Rathore seemed to say exactly that when he said while the Army carried out the strike “our PM ordered hot pursuit in which two camps were completely annihilated” This looked like it would have been Modi’s Obama moment But instead the government is forced to do damage control on multiple fronts The Army Problem: The government stands accused of trying to steal the Army’s thunder and as an Indian Express editorial writes trying to “harvest political capital out of the Army’s success” The Army had merely said it had conducted strikes “along the border” It was hashtag friendly Rajyavardhan Rathore who shot off his mouth about “our Special Forces crossing the border and going deep into another country” His boasting actually forced more attention on the operation and compelled Myanmar to publicly display its annoyance Now the Economic Times reports that the government is unhappy with Rathore’s braggadocio “Rathore’s statement was avoidable” one minister tells ET Another says “Rathore should not have spoken like that… what was the need” But there is a bit of shooting the messenger here Rathore did not rush in front of television cameras He was chosen to do so precisely because he is a former military man The Indian Express says “it was because it felt he could send the message across louder and clearer than the Army could Sources said a political intervention was felt necessary at the ‘highest level’ and that’s how Rathore a retired Army colonel was chosen to give out details the Army couldn’t" Unlike V K Singh the other minister who landed the Modi government in a soup with his tweets Rathore was not doing any of this for himself It was entirely about buttressing the PM’s strongman image Now the PMO is distancing itself from Rathore but let’s not forget Rathore was not bragging about his own #56inch chest And he was chosen to go before the media AFTER those tweets The Diplomacy Problem: Narendra Modi came to power with unprecedented SAARC bonhomie by inviting all the neighbouring leaders to his swearing in He has played prompt and kindly big brother to Nepal after the earthquake Thought social media slammed his ‘Despite Being A Woman’ comment in Dhaka his Bangladesh visit was in general successful K Anis Ahmed commented in Scroll “In words and gestures Modi’s visit seemed designed to signal the one thing that many Bangladeshis have felt missing from their bigger neighbour: respect” Now Myanmar is complaining vociferously that New Delhi is not showing them that same thing: respect Rathore bragged that the Indian Army “went into” Myanmar to target militant camps and initial reports talked about how the Myanmar army provided the intelligence and then turned a blind eye to the operation Even if that was true diplomacy demands both countries do not go to town talking about it Certainly Washington and Islamabad have not admitted to any collusion even though Seymour Hersch alleged that they worked very much in tandem But Rathore’s braggadocio has forced a normally tight-lipped Myanmar to say categorically “we will not allow foreign troops to enter our territory” Rathore did not stop to think how India would feel if the tables were turned and Myanmar wanted to claim credit for an operation conducted on the Indian side of the border So now suddenly India and Myanmar who are allies and partners are putting out embarrassingly different scenarios of what happened Happymon Jacob an international affairs expert at Jawaharlal Nehru University tells The Telegraph “If you do not treat these things with a certain kind of secrecy and sensitivity it could impact how Myanmar and other countries treat similar requests from India in the future” Meanwhile Pakistan which had no reason to get involved in the story has decided to adopt a sanctimonious tone and lecture India about a “moral high ground” and how they would continue their “quest for a peaceful neighbourhood” despite “irresponsible” and “imprudent statements” from India’s leaders Basically Nawaz Sharif wants to use Manohar Parrikar’s statement that the operation in Myanmar was about sending messages to India’s other neighbours to rally his country together with some India-bashing The Photo Problem: Then there is the photo goof up that has left everyone with more questions than answers Two photographs allegedly from the operation started going around social media and media outlets It showed the soliders carrying guns in front of an army helicopter flashing victory signs ANI carried the pictures with the faces blanked out to protect their identities But then the defence ministry tweeted it had “NOT issued any photo relating to the Indian Army action along the Indo-Myanmar border in the North East so far” ANI claimed the photos were authorized by the Additional Directorate General of Public Information which said it had done no such thing Then the whole affair blew up further when the images were found via Google as being from 2009-13 Now the Army is back pedaling saying according to The Hindu that the photographs were only approved as a “representative picture” not an “operational picture” That’s even more ridiculous because why should the Army be in the business of giving media outlets “representational pictures” anyway Especially pictures that were already out there and available Whether the pictures were an honest mistake or a deliberate attempt to jazz up the story and make it more front-page worthy someone royally goofed up along the way The Bodycount Problem: Now it seems the death toll from the strike is in dispute as well The Army had kept mum about the casualties inflicted though in background briefings it had suggested 20 dead and 11 injured though some in the media have floated the claim that 100 insurgents were killed But Indian Express says only seven bodies have been recovered and about a dozen militants were injured More damningly Rathore’s #ManipurRevenge did not hit the perpetrators of the 4 June ambush that cost India 18 lives Express also says that Niki Sumi the head of one of the camps destroyed left it with 40 of his cadres before the Indians attacked If Sumi is the Osama equivalent in this story he it seems got away And IE claims SS Khaplang the aging patriarch of the NSCN-K insurgent group is undergoing medical treatment safely in Yangon So now questions are being raised as to the strategic value of the attack beyond providing some high-octane television drama and an ego stroke to India about its military prowess When President Obama placed the killing of Osama bin Laden at the centre of his re-election campaign he too was accused of politicizing the event and making it a campaign slogan by his opponents But Modi’s Obama moment seems to be unraveling not because of his opponents but because those around him were too greedy and too hasty to turn it into a PR-spectacle tailor-made for television As Modi maintains an uncharacteristic silence his minister’s #56inch Rocks boast is turning into 50 Shades of Red New Delhi: After a letter to the BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi Aam Admi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal has shot a similar missive to Congress party vice president Rahul Gandhi on the hike in gas prices for Reliance Industries In the open letter released to the media Kejriwal alleged that Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Induries had already secured a higher price of over $4 per unit for natural gas by using questionable means as against the cost of $1 per and an agreed price of $23 per unit Now the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government has decided to hike it further to $8 per unit and it is believed it will result in an undue benefit of Rs54000 crore to Reliance Industries — as opposed to a budget of Rs40000 crore for Delhi Arvind Kejriwal in this file photo PTI "Panic will spread within the country from April 1" Kejriwal said adding that the cost of cooking gas transportation and fertilisers will all go up resulting in higher food prices and an inflationary spiral "Why are you and Modi quite on this issue" he queried "People are also wondering as to why gas prices were doubled just a few months before the general elections" he said asking if the Congress party in any way was being funded by or getting other favours from Mukesh Ambani "If so what is that/" He said when the anti-corrruption wing of Delhi filed a filed a case against Ambani when the Aam Admi Party government was in power senior leaders of both the Congress and BJP raised objections "Do the two parties have such bonding with Mukesh Ambani" Kejriwal said he was making the letter public since it concerned the average citizens Also while Rahul Gandhi may choose not to reply to it if he makes his views on these matters public it will remove people’s doubts IANS Disclaimer: Firstpost is published by Network18 whose promoters have received funding from the Reliance Group Written by Tavleen Singh | Updated: June 1 2014 12:31 am The Congress needs to make a serious effort to rise from the ashes of its worst-ever defeat Related News No government more deserved to be dumped in history’s dustbin than the one just thrown out by India’s voters But the only people who seem not to know this are that government’s former ministers I have in the past week run into these newly jobless politicians in this city’s fine restaurants and celebrated drawing rooms and to a man they exhibited bitterness and incomprehension The election results have taken them so totally by surprise that they find it hard to conceal their hatred of Narendra Modi or their anger about having to move out of the rarefied environs of Lutyens Delhi So conversations usually go something like this ‘You think this lot can do better than we did Well you have no idea what you’re talking about We did a really good job and if we couldn’t win it’s not our fault’ More often than not the ex-minister who says this sort of thing has not even managed to win his own seat so the bitterness runs deep I try in my usual gentle way to explain what went wrong but this is interpreted as an attempt to provoke so I end up being accused of ‘hating’ Sonia Gandhi and ‘promoting’ Narendra Modi And a political discussion becomes impossible But it is one that the Congress needs to have if not publicly then at least with its ‘high command’ so as a political pundit who correctly predicted what has come to be I feel emboldened to give some free advice India needs a strong vigilant opposition party as much as it needs an effective government so the Congress needs to make a serious effort to rise from the ashes of its worst-ever defeat This will not happen if men and women who till yesterday were holders of high office continue behaving like petulant schoolchildren They must scrutinise their record of the past decade with integrity and without prejudice and if they do this they will realise that the record is a dismal one Sonia Gandhi placed at the highest levels of government people she chose on grounds of loyalty and not merit so vital ministries like Defence and Home were in the hands of family retainers External Affairs was in the hands of a minister so oblivious of external affairs that he once read a speech in the UN General Assembly that was written for Portugal’s foreign minister While we delve for a moment into history let us remember the sickening helplessness exhibited by every senior Congress leader after the worst terrorist act committed on Indian soil Of 26/11 let us also remember that Digvijaya Singh released a book that described it as an RSS conspiracy and that Rahul Gandhi told an American ambassador that he was more worried about Hindu terrorists than jihadis Now let us come to internal affairs In such important areas as Education and Health there was a lot of bluster about a new education policy and a rural health mission but on the ground nothing changed In the past decade more and more Indians even those living in desperate poverty have been forced to send their children to private schools and rely on private health services Of course some of this is the fault of inefficient state governments but if there had been better policies in Delhi it would have made all the difference Let us not forget that the National Advisory Council forced many very expensive welfare schemes down the throat of all our state governments Had these horrendously expensive schemes created jobs reduced poverty and malnutrition and improved the lives of the poor there may have been a Congress prime minister once more They did not and nor did the ‘rights-based governance’ that Rahul Gandhi boasted of during the election campaign The reason why these so-called rights made so little impact is because people believe correctly that it is the fundamental duty of any government to provide decent public services anyway These things should be obvious to anyone who wants to govern a country the size of a continent but if they are not it is because of the reduction of the Government of India to a caboodle of sycophants This is what happened in the past decade because if you can make the prime minister into a family retainer everything eventually starts to fall apart Everything did but the consequences of an unaccountable de facto prime minister being the person in charge only began to be felt in the past three years This is when this country’s official prime minister chose to abdicate his responsibilities towards the people of India and become instead a regent for the anointed prince It did not take long for the people of this ancient broken- down land to
