It seems the post-2014 NDA government is behaving as though it were perennially in an election mode. In one sense, this might reflect heightened consciousness about ultimate democratic accountability. Also that elections have to be a highly managed affair and the parties as election machines have to remain constantly on their toes. This might impact either the nature and thrust of the policies or might focus primarily on their popular projection by means of packaging and marketing. After all, the rulers want people to view their policies in a friendly colour, whatever the field outcomes.

The Belt and Road Forum, hosted by China on May 14-15, for international cooperation evoked splendid response across the universe, despite New Delhi gratuitously choosing to opt out of this major infrastructure initiative launched by the Middle Kingdom. Even as the United States (US) shunned Beijing’s other big bid- Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) a few years ago, the Trump Administration, albeit all its trade reprisal threats against China for unfair trade practices, sent a high level delegation. Japan too, for all its ongoing altercations with China over the disputed islands in the East China Sea and simmering discontents for decades, sent a high level delegation.

INDIAN DEMOCRACY IS A TYRANNY OF RULING REGIME

JUDICIARY HAS NOT LIVED UP TO ITS CONSTITUTIONAL MANDATE
Author: Amritananda Chakravorty - Published 2017-05-23 13:01

“The Indian Democracy cannot be a tyranny of the unelected.” This remark made by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in October 2015 aptly sums up the relation between the current political regime, led by Narendra Modi, and the Judiciary, especially the Supreme Court, in the last three years. This comment by Arun Jaitley was made in the context of the Supreme Court striking down the National Judicial Appointments Commission Act, which brought in Executive role and control in the appointment of Judges to the High Courts and the Supreme Court, as violative of the basic structure of the Constitution. This dealt a body blow to the attempts made by the Modi Government to limit what they call ‘judicial overreach’ by having a say in the critical issue of judicial appointments.
