lifetime When two people died allegedly of heat stroke at AIADMK (All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam) supremo Jayalalithaa’s rally in Vriddhachalam on 11 April the deaths did not get much attention in Tamil Nadu’s media circles Even the Opposition reacted in a lethargic manner before apparently realising that something was seriously wrong with people being herded to political rallies and made to roast in the summer sun Two more died at Jaya’s Salem rally on 20 April– with this political rivals swung into high decibel shrieking The murmurs among even the rival Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) camp just after the Vriddhachalam deaths were telling – “Andha Amma appadi thaan” (She is like that only) was the consensus not just among cadre but also senior leaders of the party There appeared to be an acceptance of the fact that Jaya being a cult political personality was entitled to hold public rallies at her convenience unmindful of the sufferings of those villagers brought to the rally The DMK is no better in reality It is the leader M Karunanidhi who is above all else in the party Party seniors local strongmen of the DMK all have to attribute successes of previous DMK regimes to the ingenuity and large-heartedness of ‘Thalaivar Kalaignar’ (Leader and Artist) as Karunanidhi is called File photo of Jayalalithaa AFP Both political leaders Jaya and Karuna have repeatedly sought to reinforce the image of their own cult personality Between 2006 and 2011 when the DMK was in power a health insurance scheme for poor families was launched – then Chief Minister Karunanidhi named it the ‘Kalaignar Kaapeettu Thittam’ (Kalaignar Insurance Scheme) Between 2011 and 2016 Jayalalithaa unleashed a slew of ‘Amma’ products and schemes – from Amma canteens and Amma Salt to Amma Babycare Kits When Jaya was jailed for three weeks in 2014 following a conviction in a Bangalore court over a corruption case 16 people allegedly committed suicide most by self immolation in apparent anguish over the trials faced by their leader This was a stark throwback to 1987 when AIADMK founder and former Chief Minister MG Ramachandran passed away – 31 people set themselves afire in grief over his passing Jayalalithaa in fact hands out compensation on ‘compassionate grounds’ to the families of the deceased from party funds seen by her critics as tantamount to encouraging such acts despite her public entreaties to followers not to take their own lives Any criticism of the DMK leadership at the cadre level would invariably result in violent scuffles “Kalaignar-a koccha paduthittaanga” (They have insulted Kalaignar – Karuna’s moniker meaning artist) would be a clarion call for goondaism amongst the cadre Feet Of Clay Political analysts lament the idolising of leaders in Tamil Nadu arguing that real issues invariably get sidestepped in the craze over the cult “Definitely it (cult personality politics) affects the political discourse because it deviates from issue-based politics” said Gnani Sankaran author and political commentator “Issues don’t get discussed only leaders get discussed It will change only in the next 10 years after Karunanidhi and Jayalalithaa are gone Only then will policies and issues be discussed” he stated To an outsider the rhetoric seems fantastic “I am your mother and only a mother knows what is best for her children” thunders Jayalalithaa to the masses at public rallies In turn Karunanidhi chips in with how he will save the Tamil state “I understand your suffering but I am powerless now give me power” he said But for Tamil Nadu these statements have been considered normal for decades Analysts feel that the emergence of a brand new Third Front in this election – consisting of Vijaykanth Vaiko Thirumavalavan GK Vasan and the two Left parties – has helped much more in kindling a discussion on issues than on personal attacks indulged in by leaders in the past “This is in fact the first election in which issues are being discussed and this is due to the Third Front” explained Gnani Sankaran “For example they have brought prohibition and corruption into focus This is only due to Third Front however weak they may be politically” he said “There is a very thin line of difference between charisma and cult” explained C Lakshmanan political analyst and Associate Professor at the Madras Institute of Development Studies (MIDS) “Charisma can exhibit rationality but when it becomes a cult it turns into blind faith Blind faith in anything can only be dangerous to the state The rationality of the Dravidian movement and the cult personalities in Tamil Nadu exist side by side which is a peculiar thing in this state” he added The cult leader he adds has emerged only to depoliticise the voter and ensure that leaders are not held accountable by their people For the first time in a decade Tamil Nadu’s political parties have begun speaking out against the culture of offering freebies during elections as part of the manifesto This push for change has come overwhelmingly from the young voter who is registering his/her voice online using social media as a tool Unless the hero or heroine worship of leaders is destroyed Tamil Nadu will simply not be able to the next levels of policy and scientific analysis Washington – India continues to rank low at 130th position in terms of ease of doing business with the country seeing little or no improvement in dealing with construction permits getting credit and other parameters The latest ranking comes as a far cry from prime minister Narendra Modi’s aim to take the country to the top 50 ranks In the World Bank’s latest ‘Doing Business’ report India’s place remained unchanged from last year’s original ranking of 130 among the 190 economies that were assessed on various parameters However the last year’s ranking has been now revised to 131 from which the country has improved its place by one spot ReutersThe government has been making efforts to further improve the ease of doing business and aims to bring the country in the top 50 Expressing disappointment over no change in India’s ranking in the World Bank’s index on ease of doing business Indian government regretted that the report did not take into consideration 12 key reforms undertaken by the government When it comes to ‘distance to frontier’ — a measurement of the gap between an economy’s performance and the best practice score of 100 — India’s score has improved to 5527 this year from 5393 last year India is the only country for which the report has a box dedicated to its ongoing economic reforms The list of countries in the Doing Business 2017 is topped by New Zealand while Singapore is ranked second It is followed by Denmark Hong Kong South Korea Norway the UK the US Sweden and former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia Neighbouring Pakistan is ranked 144th in the list On the basis of reforms undertaken the top 10 improvers are Brunei Darussalam Kazakhstan Kenya Belarus Indonesia Serbia Georgia Pakistan United Arab Emirates and Bahrain A record 137 economies around the world have adopted key reforms that make it easier to start and operate small and medium-sized businesses the report said Developing countries carried out more than 75 per cent of the 283 reforms in the past year with Sub-Saharan Africa accounting for over one-quarter of all reforms it added "What we have seen is a remarkable effort on the part of the government to implement business reforms It looks like we are going to have to wait for another year or so But the direction of change is fundamentally a very significant one" Global Indicators Group Director Augusto Lopez-Claros told PTI in an interview The rankings are based on ten parameters — starting a business dealing with construction permits getting electricity registering property getting credit protecting minority investors paying taxes trading across borders enforcing contracts and resolving insolvency India has improved its ranking with respect to various areas In terms of getting electricity the country’s position has jumped to 26th spot from 51st place last year When it comes to trading across borders the ranking has moved up one place to 143 and in enforcing contracts the rise is of six spots to 172nd position However with respect to starting a business the ranking has slipped four places to 155th spot and in the case of dealing with construction permits by one rank to 185th As per the report India’s ranking in terms of protecting minority investors dropped to 13th place from 10th position last year With regard to getting credit the ranking has fallen by two places to 44 Explaining as to why India’s reform efforts is not being reflected in the ease of doing business report Lopez-Claros said it very often takes some time for the reforms implemented by governments about the regulatory environment to be felt on the ground by the business community Rita Ramalho Manager of the Doing Business project said that there were in fact improvements this year "There are four areas of improvement this year in India getting electricity trading across border enforcing contracts and paying taxes" Ramalho told PTI India’s ranking is based on the study of the system in the two cities of Mumbai and New Delhi "The reason why there is no real movement in the ranking is more to do with the fact that other countries are also moving In absolute terms India does improve significantly There aren’t many countries that improved more than India in terms of absolute number" Ramalho said The ‘Doing Business’ project provides objective measures of business regulations for local firms in economies and selected cities at the sub-national level The World Bank is emphasising that countries pay attention to what it calls "distance to frontier" which is an absolute metric Lopez-Claros said "There has been actually substantial increase in the last 12 months in India by couple of percentage points which is quite large" he noted Lopez-Claros said there are only 34 economies that actually improved more than India in the particular measure of distance to frontier metrics "You have to focus on distance to frontier metrics if you want to know what is going on India at this moment The fact that it has gone up by couple of percentage points is a reflection of the changes in Indian regulations" he noted He stressed simply saying that "130th rank means that there is no change in the business environment in India is completely unfair to the government" "There is a small change in the relative measure but in absolute measure which is a reflection of what is happening in India there has been a remarkable improvement" he observed "We have been impressed by the effort the seriousness of the reforms being implemented You can be sure we would very much like to see this progress quickly reflected on the ground" Lopez-Claros said According to Lopez-Claros Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambition of bringing India within first 50 ranking in the ease of doing business is achievable "It is achievable I do not think that it is unreasonable We can talk about the time frame but if you ask me does the government have the technical capacity the ability to implement and conceptualise reforms that could in the medium-term lead to substantial improvement in ranking my answer is yes I have full confidence The effort has to be sustained That’s all I am saying" he said While noting that moving from 130 to less than 50 is not going to happen in 12 months Lopez-Claros said what is important is direction of change "And we are comfortable that the direction of change is the correct one because we see improvement in the distance from the frontier score" he added World Bank Chief Economist and Senior Vice President Paul Romer said simple rules that are easy to follow are a sign that a government treats its citizens with respect "They yield direct economic benefits – more entrepreneurship; more market opportunities for women; more adherence to the rule of law" he noted 2016 12:02 pm Tiger Shroff’s A Flying Jatt has got Pahlaj
