political legacy ( Source: PTI ) Related News Kevin Costner’s famous line “Build it and they will come” seems to have proved true of Narendra Modi’s India in the making Both friends and foes are making a beeline for India not just out of curiosity but also out of a conviction that exciting things are ahead and they should have a piece of the pie Needless to say the same rush to Delhi was seen in 1977 and 1998 but a mix of curiosity and anxiety rather than excitement was writ large on the faces of visitors then Andrei Gromyko the veteran foreign minister of the USSR was visibly pale when he arrived in Delhi in 1977 But the then foreign minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee put him at ease by assuring him that though the faces that greeted him were new the friendship had not changed Bill Richardson the US ambassador to the UN came as Bill Clinton’s special envoy in 1998 soon after the firing of the Ghauri missile by Pakistan and misread Vajpayee’s smile when he was asked whether he would test nuclear weapons The news of the tests came soon after Richardson returned to Washington to report that all was well with Delhi This time there is less anxiety and more hope First because it is not a hotchpotch coalition that has come to power in India Second it is well known that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a definite agenda to build an economic power in collaboration with the world which would mean further liberalisation of the economy The surprise invitation to SAARC leaders and his conversations with them have strengthened the impression that changes in foreign policy will be thoughtful purposeful and gradual World leaders must feel comfortable with the signals emanating from the new government in Delhi Not surprisingly the first important visitor came from the US Though Nisha Desai Biswal is only an assistant secretary of state equivalent to our joint secretaries hers is a political appointment and she is the point person for India in the US State Department One of her predecessors Robin Raphel famously downgraded relations by saying that India was not on her radar as she felt slighted by India Another Karl F Inderfurth transformed India-US relations for the better during the Clinton years Biswal’s Gujarati origin is accidental but her visit was obviously intended to pave the way for Modi’s visit to Washington which will be crucial The arrival of a new head of mission to take care of matters till the new ambassador is here is also an important signal The prime minister also launched a book born out of an India-US collaboration (Bibek Debroy and Ashley J Tellis) called Getting India Back on Track expressing appreciation for the role of think tanks in development If Americans come the Chinese cannot be far behind Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi came as the special envoy of President Xi Jinping and ensured that he was received not only by his counterpart but also by the prime minister and the president Unlike the Americans the Chinese have had a history of good relations with Modi resulting in sizeable Chinese investments in Gujarat The Chinese see Modi as an Indian Deng Xiaoping On the eve of his meeting with Wang Yi Modi said he would emulate the “skill scale and speed” of the Chinese But both sides were aware of the problems at the national level Commercial relations could not be separated from the political legacy either Further complications arose with the presence of Lobsang Sangay the prime minister-in-exile of Tibet among SAARC leaders reportedly as a guest of the BJP Wang Yi made the right noises but on the all-important issue of the border he was quite forthright about an indefinite deadline for finding a solution He also claimed that there had been peace and stability on the border “on the whole” for 30 years brushing aside the number of incidents China had created Trade and economic relations are also not free of trouble The bilateral trade is in China’s favour and the massive Chinese involvement in the Indian economy is fraught with dangers But contacts will continue and as many as six high-level meetings are envisaged for the next year including a visit by the Chinese president Many others notably the Russians the French the Germans and the British will also be interested in visiting India Still more will want a stake in India’s expected growth Corporate leaders must have already arrived in Mumbai and Delhi to look for opportunities in the liberated Indian market The roads to Delhi are open to traffic both ways and Modi is expected to visit Brazil Japan the US and Myanmar to name just a few His engagement with the world will be as intense as his efforts to manage internal affairs The reports of sexual violence in India particularly in Uttar Pradesh have raised international concern But by dealing with it effectively through “zero tolerance for violence against women” as the president declared recently India could dispel these fears and reassure those who long to travel to Delhi

Top News With the upcoming Ashes series coming up in a couple of months time and the selectors stating that several spots are up for grabs former Australian opener Justin Langer believes that Shaun Marsh can earn a recall to the side as he is in a good run of form “I’ve known Shaun since he was a little kid I’ve never seen him bat as well as he’s batting at the moment I’m looking forward to seeing that contest leading into The Ashes and see who’s going to grab hold of that position” Langer said while talking to cricketcomau “Whether it’s Shaun or Mitch or any of the guys around Australia the guy who can get Test hundreds should be batting at six But I hope it’s one of them” he added Meanwhile Langer also went on to slam the scheduling system of Australia’s that has rendered the Sydney Cricket Ground unavailable for his side (Western Australia) to play and hindered the preparation for the domestic tournament “It’s very disappointing for us Not only are there some very good players playing but it’s also leading up to the Ashes The first Test of the Ashes is a few weeks later so to play at Hurtsville Oval — which probably couldn’t be further from the WACA or the Gabba is disappointing From Australian cricket’s point of view it’s a shame that game is going to be played thereThis is my fifth year as coach of WA I wasn’t here last year because of personal reasons but we’ve played one Shield game at the SCG in five years” he said while talking to the West Australian “That’s bizarre I find that really strange and disappointing There’s obviously reasons for it but you don’t want to take the polish off our domestic competition Our domestic competition has been the envy of the world for a long time I think it’s a really integral part of why we’ve been so successful The cream has to rise to the top It’s a really hard competition and you play on great venues I can’t ever remember playing a Shield game away from the main venues That was over a long career” he concluded For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsIn the first week of March this year Ashish Joshi the officer whose complaint against Rajendra Kumar Principal Secretary to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal led to the CBI raids at various locations including Delhi government’s secretariat was persuaded by Ashish Khetan to take up the job of member-secretary of Delhi Dialogue Commission (DDC) Khetan knew Joshi for quite some time When he was still a journalist Joshi was a director in the ministry of minority affairs at the Centre But despite that kind of acquaintance Joshi was given the marching orders by the AAP government within 30 days of taking up the Delhi Dialogue assignment He was removed from the post in late March and Khetan vice-president of the commission was the one who first gave him the marching order orally Joshi asked for a written order to this effect since a movement of this nature or shunting out in the government can take place only on files not by oral orders Ashish Joshi Image courtesy/Firstpost Few minutes after Khetan had hung up Rajendra Kumar Principal Secretary to the chief minister the officer at the centre of current storm called him up to repeat the marching orders He was asked to relinquish his charge as member-secretary of Dialogue Commission and report to Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board Joshi in any case was continuing there as member Finance since June 2014 He was holding an additional post in this commission A fortnight later in mid-April an office rider landed at Joshi’s residence with a letter That letter shocked Joshi He was suddenly repatriated to his parent cadre – P&T Accounts and Finance Service No questions were to be asked nor was any explanation given Joshi official car was ordered to be moved to the garage It didn’t matter that he had still not relinquished charge to report to the central government department The question is why an officer who till a month ago was considered so efficient and energetic was being hounded out by those who vouched for probity and transparency Joshi’s only fault was that he was or is not pliable He speaks his mind on the file and at times at places where he is designated to speak Ashish was the only government servant at DDC thus all appointments had to be routed through him or he had to do it His rift with Khetan and AA P developed once he prepared guidelines for selecting coordinators and facilitators for DDC put it up on the website and invited applications Pressure started mounting on him thereafter He was asked to straightaway appoint six AAP volunteers to these posts which he refused saying he had already issued guidelines and applications were pouring in Joshi was then told to make these appointments honorary to which Joshi again referred to guidelines for honorary positions While all this was going on one day senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh landed at his office with few volunteers and misbehaved with him There was some sermonising on the AAP’s thought process on work Subsequent to that Joshi wrote a long letter to the chief secretary detailing the AAP leader’s misbehavior and the pressure on him for appointment of volunteers He requested the latter to apprise the chief minister of the matter This was not acceptable to AAP’s ruling dispensation and he got the marching orders As member Finance and Chief Digitisation officer at Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board he had come in official contact with Rajendra Kumar He had turned the board into a paperless e-office During course of his work he would often hear about misdeeds of Kumar’s action as IT secretary There were many who were impressed by Joshi’s work and felt cheated and humiliated by his unceremonious removal They gave him loads of documents against Kumar the most reliable ones of which formed part of his complaint against Kumar to Anti-Corruption Bureau and to the CBI As a young officer in P&T department Joshi had cut telephone lines of AICC on account of non-payment This included a number which was installed at Sonia Gandhi’s office Socialites like Veena Ramani too had their phone lines disconnected He was transferred from his post but when the news of his transfer became public the then telecom minister Sushma Swaraj cancelled his transfer order In the ministry of minority affairs he came in conflict with his political boss AR Antulay because the minister wanted him to appoint one of his favourites in Maulana Azad Research Foundation without following norms Again Joshi refused to bow But an upright officer is no darling of Modi government either After Joshi was abruptly shunted out by Delhi government Union communications and IT ministry asked him to report in Ranchi It was too much for a mild- mannered officer to bear He had taken three year deputation to Delhi government because his daughter was in class 10 He kept representing between April and September to the ministry that he be placed in Delhi and he couldn’t afford to be posted in Ranchi Finally in September he got the option of posting in Dehradun which he accepted
