likelihood of China turning over the alleged hackers is close to nil — has touched off a diplomatic storm signals both the Obama administration’s frustration with China’s consistent and frequent

there exists a tacit understanding that countries will routinely employ all means at their disposal cyber or otherwise to gather intelligence on each other’s activities for national security this unwritten code exempts the use of state-run intelligence for intellectual property theft or for commercial advantage But perhaps this distinction is lost on the Chinese given that there most

News The Delhi Metro police station at Central Secretariat has registered as many as 2294 cases since January 1 this year — topping the list of police stations with the maximum number of crime cases reported across the capital While police attributed this to an increase in the number of thefts and pick-pocketing cases issues such as staff crunch and lack of space add to the problem Set up in 2015 the station on the Yellow Line has just 15 personnel — including an inspector — and no permanent office As of now they work from a building given to the Rajouri Garden Metro police station — which is nine stops away on the Blue Line The 15 personnel also look after New Delhi Rajeev Chowk Patel Chowk Udyog Bhawan and Lok Kalyan Marg stations With no station at Central Secretariat police sources said complainants face a lot of problems “As people have to change lines and travel nine stops till Rajouri Garden to file a complaint they often leave without reporting the matter” a police officer said Majority of cases reported at the station include pick-pocketing theft molestation misbehavior and assault Cases of missing children have been reported as well a source said DCP (Metro) Jintendra Mani told The Indian Express that the surge in cases could be because of an increase in the number of Metro stations and passenger footfall “We have written to the Delhi Metro We have also taken up the issue with the government to give us space on the same line If our men are posted at same station they can work more effectively We have also requested for more staff at the (Central Secretariat)

to our national cohesion and impacting our national potential Top News Seven decades ago when India secured independence many were sceptical Winston Churchill was one of them Churchill had vociferously opposed granting independence to India His argument was that Indians were not equipped to handle it “If independence is granted to India power will go to the hands of rascals rogues freebooters; all Indian leaders will be of low calibre…They will fight amongst themselves for power and India will be lost in political squabbles A day would come when even air and water would be taxed in India” he is said to have famously commented We do find several of those things in our country; but they happen as much in the UK or any other democracy We are not “rascals rogues freebooters”; neither are the people of UK We opted for the Westminster system of democracy after independence Democracy by its very nature is prone to noisy politics Even Mahatma Gandhi felt that the democracy we were inheriting had the danger of becoming a mobocracy He used to warn that without a few prerequisites — education discipline equal respect of law by all and priority to social willover the individual will — democracy won’t succeed Mobs “have no mind no premeditation They act in frenzy” Gandhiji used to warn Gandhiji would always talk about Ram Rajya By Ram Rajya he meant a society where people are learned and behave in an orderly manner; everyone from the king to the commoner obeys the law and the larger social good dictates policies — not the whims and fancies of a chosen few In the past seven decades we have experienced most of these things We left our people poor ill-educated and backward and ran an aristocracy in the name of democracy Even a quintessential democrat like the first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru used to call democracy the “second best available system” The best “Yet to be invented” he would say “Democracy is good I say this because other systems are worse So we are forced to accept democracy It has good points and also bad But merely saying that democracy will solve all problems is utterly wrong Problems are solved by intelligence and hard work” Nehru wrote Contrary to Gandhiji who wanted society to be equipped with values Nehru believed the intelligence of a few people would make democracy work In seven decades Indian society has matured It took seven decades for us no doubt to understand and set the basics right in many aspects The first thing that was set right was Aristotelian Aristotle said “democracy is when the indigent and not the men of property are the rulers” Indigent in this context should be understood as someone who has seen and lived the humble life of an ordinary Indian It took 70 years for India to have a leadership that was not born with a silver spoon The leadership of today thinks differently Reform is not its agenda its vision pertains to transformation Reform is tinkering with the existing system Transformation is about matters at the grassroots Reform is government’s job But transformation requires people’s participation Hitherto people were told that their role was limited to voting every five years But the new leadership believes in people-led development It took 70 years and a transformative agenda to think that we have to be clean One thing that went against our country despite being one of the best places in the world was lack of hygiene Today thanks to the transformative agenda of the government Swachh Bharat has become a people’s movement For 70 years we struggled to curb ill treatment of women The PM in his first speech from the Red Fort exhorted people to respect and accord freedom to women Building toilets was not about hygiene alone It was about providing women self-respect protecting them from violence allowing them to rise educationally and empowering them The high rates of school dropouts among girls are attributed partly to lack of toilet facilities in schools Today building toilets has become a national movement It took 70 years for us to bring the last man on the street into the economic net through the Jan Dhan Yojana Today the citizen of the country who lives in a slum on a railway platform or under a flyover is secure; he has an insurance cover After seven decades of politics over SC/ST identities we now realise that the real urge is not about reservations alone but about respect; it is not just about a few extra jobs but about participation in decision-making Today we are talking about “youth-led development” We no longer think only about employment for our youth Many have been encouraged to become employers themselves by the government’s new schemes But even after seven decades of independence certain issues remain unresolved The intolerance debate the secular-communal debate and the nationalism debate are some such issues They are causing irreparable damage to our national cohesion and impacting our national potential In most cases the discourse on both sides is deeply flawed Those who complain about intolerance betray their own intolerance by resigning from institutions because their views were not accommodated While we have largely eliminated the evil practice of untouchability at the level of society we find a new and unwelcome practice of ideological untouchability We have become fond of tags like communal anti-national etc The measure of a mature society is in admitting that different opinions exist The tradition since the distant past in this country has been to not only tolerate but also celebrate diversity of thoughts and practices At the recently concluded young thinkers meet I said: “Remain open-minded; co-opt rather than confront; be confident about your own thoughts but allow space for other thoughts too; confront intellectually rather than condemn every other thought as communal or anti-national and most importantly remember that diversity of thoughts and ideas is the reality and beauty of life” And remember what Gandhiji had said: “Democracy cannot be worked by 20 men sitting at the centre” The writer is national general secretary BJP and director India Foundation For all the

News TheLima conference was an important stepping stone towards the 2015 Paris climate agreement As French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told diplomats in Lima “the best way to ensure success in Paris is to start with success in Lima” While few would characterise the Lima Call for Climate Action as a resounding success it takes a few tentative yet significant steps towards Paris and thus represents tangible progress First states arrived as they were required to at the elements of the negotiating text for the 2015 agreement The 38-page “elements text” is littered with options and alternatives though little of it represents agreed language Indeed the only reason states agreed to move forward on the basis of this text was a comforting footnote indicating that the elements reflect “work in progress” Nevertheless the text puts in place the broad structure scope and contours of the Paris agreement Parties will begin negotiating in earnest on the basis of this text in 2015 Second states arrived at a truce albeit temporary on the vexing question of differentiation between developed and developing countries in relation to the nature and form of their commitments under the climate regime Although few believed this issue would be resolved before the last night in Paris many were keen to ensure that the outcomes in Lima were not loaded either for or against differentiation in the 2015 agreement Admittedly in the last few years there has been an erosion of differentiation in the climate regime Indeed the Durban Platform which launched the negotiating process towards the 2015 agreement contains no reference to common but differentiated responsibility a central organising principle of the climate regime thus far Developing countries were keen to rehabilitate this principle and in Lima they recorded modest gains The principle features in an operational provision of the Lima decision albeit qualified by the clause “in light of different national circumstances” This language drawn from last month’s US-China deal signals the pivotal role these countries play in climate negotiations As national circumstances evolve so will the common but differentiated responsibilities of states This language accommodates the interests of both the developing world which wishes to see the 2015 agreement built on common but differentiated responsibilities and of the developed countries which favour an evolutionary interpretation of the principle that accounts for the rapid growth in many developing economies since 1992 Third the Lima decision provides guidance albeit not as robust as desired to states as they prepare to submit their “intended nationally determined contributions” next year States are required to submit these contributions to the climate regime before the Paris conference Three key questions were to be resolved at Lima to help states prepare their contributions: the scope of these contributions — whether they will cover mitigation adaptation finance technology and capacity building or only some of these the information that states would need to provide with these contributions and the assessment process that would apply once contributions are submitted No resolution proved possible on the scope of contributions There were a range of views cutting across north-south lines with some states insisting that contributions should only cover mitigation and others arguing that mitigation and adaptation should be accorded legal and material parity Many developing countries including India argued that if they were required to submit mitigation contributions which they had been insulated from so far there must be a corresponding increase in the provision of technical and financial support This in their view could be best secured by requiring developed countries to submit contributions on finance Needless to say this proved difficult to secure The Lima outcome leaves the scope of contributions to national determination This implies that states can choose not just which contributions to submit but also whether to submit adaptation contributions in lieu of mitigation ones This also leaves open the possibility that states could submit contributions that are conditional to the provision of support On the information to be submitted the Lima outcome made a modest start by specifying albeit in a non-prescriptive manner the types of information necessary including on how a state considers its contribution to be “fair and ambitious” This will facilitate transparency and comparability between different countries’ contributions In addition the EU and many developing countries including the Africa Group least developed countries and small island developing states had argued for a robust ex-ante assessment process to consider whether the contributions of states add up to what is adequate to meet the 2 degree Celsius temperature goal and are equitable in light of the capacities and responsibilities of the country in question China and India however argued against such an assessment process and ultimately held sway But this does not preclude such a process from being included in the 2015 agreement Perhaps the most significant achievement of the Lima decision was a provision requiring each state’s contribution to represent a “progression beyond the current undertaking of that party” Commonly known as the no-backsliding principle this provision will ensure both that the regime as a whole is moving towards ever more ambitious and rigorous contributions from parties and that there will be continuing differentiation since developed and developing countries thanks to Kyoto are at different starting points Given the deep and enduring differences that plague climate negotiations the Lima Call for Climate Action even with its modest victories and tentative agreements represents progress and will stand countries in good stead as the drum roll for
