Express App More Related NewsOf late the Bharatiya Janata Party’s top financial minds have begun speaking out in strong words about the precarious state of the Indian economy They are highly critical of the Narendra Modi government’s failure to act in time to arrest a major economic slowdown despite early warning signals certain unwarranted economic moves that only worsened the pain and about the government’s reluctance to accept past mistakes and work on concrete remedies The latest such caution has come from BJP leader and former union finance minister Yashwant Sinha In an op-ed for The Indian Express (read here) Sinha minced no words while accusing Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for the current mess built up in the economy Sinha feels “it is his national duty” to speak up now and said that many in the BJP know the state of affairs in the economy but are afraid to speak up “out of fear” Yashwant Sinha PTI file photo Sinha did not elaborate on what are the reasons for the fear though He has criticised Jaitley for ‘wasting’ the oil bonanza and letting the legacy problems (stalled projects bank NPAs) persist and even turn worse He listed certain economic ills such as absence of private investments return of the “raid raj” and distress in “sector after sector” in the economy Of course Sinha isn’t the lone economic critic of the government from the BJP’s own camp It wasn’t long before BJP MP Subamanian Swamy also a known academic/economist hit out against the government’s economic policies and cautioned that the economy is on a tailspin and corrective measures are in order to avoid a depression Similarly former union minister Arun Shourie too came down heavily on the Modi government saying it is only managing headlines and not the economy Shourie called ‘demonetisation’ — Modi’s biggest economic move — as the greatest blunder in 70 years Empirical evidence suggests that all these critics aren’t far off the mark in their allegations and something must have really pushed them to initiate friendly fire Multiple economic indicators and trends emerging from different sectors point out a serious economic problem that is difficult to ignore even for hardcore Modi fans Private investments are lowest in many years GDP has been falling quarter after quarter and hit 57 percent in the June quarter banknon-performing assets (NPAs) are too high and hence credit growth to industries at multi-year lows industrial production has plummeted inflation is inching up limiting room for the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to cut rates and unemployment is rising posing a big question mark to millions of new entrants to the job market The government’s twin back-to-back disruptions — demonetisation and rollout of goods and services tax (GST) — have acted adversely to economic recovery It will take a while before GST revenue streams stabilise and the consequences of demonetisation become a distant memory Even the most optimistic of economists agree that a significant revival in the present economic scenario is unlikely in the near future even if the much-hyped bail-out package is rolled out now The government is in a tight spot since any economic stimulus will compromise the hard-won gains of the improvement in fiscal deficit But with no pick up in private investment on the horizon there is no option for the government but to loosen its purse strings There is no easy way out of the current scenario But the biggest cause of worry at this point is that the Modi government continues to be in denial mode of the actual state of the economy and often opts for diversionary tactics to turn attention from the real problems It was only recently that BJP President Amit Shah said the decline in gross domestic product (GDP) is only “technical” (read here) Shah must remember that technical reasons have only helped to show GDP growth rate in a better shape As Yashwant Sinha points out in his article had it been the old methodology of GDP calculation the growth rate would have shown even lower (by at least 200 bps) Jaitley too makes frequent statements to establish that critics are wrong This denial is even more dangerous since the first step to solving a problem is to acknowledge it exists Even more worrying is Sinha’s comment that many in the ruling party are afraid to speak up openly on the state of the economy despite knowing the facts If that is true this is the most unfortunate thing to happen in a democratically elected government It reduces the whole affair to the work of a closed group denying scope for discussions and gaining from collective intelligence A room for discussions criticism and dissent is crucial to generate consensus in a democratic set-up If fear is preventing BJP leaders from speaking up and pinpointing important economic issues it will be difficult to find newer solutions Sinha’s caution should be an eye-opener for PM Modi His government particularly Arun Jaitley would do well to stop pretending all is well in the economy and pay attention to informed criticism to seek solutions Raipur: Two Naxals were killed on Sunday in an exchange of fire with security forces in

members decided to leave for Pakistan (Source: Express photo by Ravi Kanojia/ File) Top News The passing away of Syed Haider Raza leaves behind only a few of those magnificent men with their splendid art and grand ways In the early nineties when I first encountered him he had an aristocratic dashing air of a man with grey locks falling over his forehead who had achieved and seen enough to be at ease with the idiosyncracies of the world Raza had come to my apartment in Mumbai where I was living then for coffee and conversation about the Progressive Artists’ Group and his own journey If his suave appearance put one in a daze it was his account which was even more mesmerising He had come as a young man from Madhya Pradesh in 1943 to study art at the Sir J J School of Art and when due to some complications he could not be admitted he joined a block-maker’s studio to earn a living In his spare time he would paint the view from the window and even at this stage his street scenes were imbued with a special significance His work attracted attention and he was soon to become a member of the newly formed Progressive Artists’ Group which had artists like FN Souza MF Husain KH Ara HA Gade and SK Bakre The group was critical of the effete revivalism of the Bengal School and the academic styles taught in art colleges and squarely took historical reality into account in their art In course of time they would not only be centrestage on the art mainstream in India but also act as an exemplar of an emergent non Euro-American modernism In their formative years however the artists lived in small congested spaces and travelled long distances to meet at the seafront or a chai shop to have discussions on art and pave the course it was to take in a newly independent country The elation of Independence however had been dismantled by the ravages of the Partition and for Raza it led to extreme isolation as his family members decided to leave for Pakistan “My brothers all four of them and my own sister decided to leave for Pakistan because the climate in Damoh and in Delhi for my eldest brother had become unbearable” he said But rooted as he felt in India he decided to stay on and his syncretic vision would infuse his work with subliminal depths Raza left for Paris in 1950 intending to study in the Mecca of art for a few years but spent the next few decades there married the artist Janine Mongillat and began to make dents on the international scene It was clear that his heart was in India though for when he made a breakthrough in his art influenced to some extent by artists like Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko during a residency at Berkeley University it was with a fluid gestural strokes latent with memories and colours of home In a masterly painting like “Ma” for instance we have flaming tongues of colour on one side counterpointed by a black still centre on the other and with the evocative lines below in Devanagari script “Mother when I return home what should I bring” In many works we see the influence of the splendid colours and movement of the miniatures of Mewar and Malwa which bring the searing sensations of his land As Raza’s work became fluid and resonant with memories his thoughts travelled to the still black centre which he had encountered as a child The young boy’s mind would wander restlessly in the forests — for his father was a forest ranger in Barbaria till his teacher Nandlal Jharia drew a large dark circle on the board and asked him to concentrate on it Gradually as he blotted out everything else the circle began to yield brilliant colours And so the Bindu emerged — paintings with a black concentric circle pulsating with radiant light where the mother of all colours – black — gives birth to the enveloping red yellow white and blues reflected in its rotating orb There would be no looking back for the artist Raza returned to India in 2011 and settled in New Delhi His prices were now a far remove from the early days and fetched crores But untouched by all this despite his ill health he painted till the last days before his final hospitalisation Two years ago when we met at his Safdarjang house for a celebration of his 92nd birthday he clasped my hand tightly As fragile as he was he spoke softly but firmly “I have come home at last and this is where I want to die” How poignant it all seems now as we are left
