Yatra For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsNew Delhi: The Congress on Tuesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of harbouring in his cabinet a "corrupt" minister for 12 years when he was Chief Minister of Gujarat File photo of Narendra Modi PTI Referring to a media report that reveals how Saurabh Patel’s family invested in firms dealing in gas and petrochemicals during his 14-year tenure as the state Energy Minister Congress spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi said Modi should come clear on this "It has come to light how Saurabh Patel and his family-owned companies invested in a Bahamas-based company dealing in energy and petro chemicals sector" Singhvi said "Out of his 14 years tenure he worked for 12 years as minister under the then Chief Minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi" he added A four-time MLA on BJP ticket Patel was the Energy and Petrochemicals Minister for 14 years till he was dropped from the cabinet on 7 August this year by new Chief Minister Vijay Rupani Singhvi said the Patels through these companies also took oil blocks from state enterprise Gujarat State Petroleum Corp (GSPC) "Is it just conflict of interest I think conflict of interest is a light word This is corruption The nation and Parliament seek answer from now Prime Minister and the then Gujarat Chief Minister" he said The Congress spokesperson alleged Athat Patel was given such an important and big ministry by Modi at the behest of "the biggest and most influential industrial family of this country" "This is not the case of daal mein kaala’ Here the entire daal is spoiled There is graft all around The Prime Minister is running away on demonetization Will he also run away on this" Singhvi asked The import of Uttar Pradesh’s assembly election can be much graver than it appears As you hear speaker after speaker at Nauchandi in Meerut before the star appearance of Akhilesh Yadav and Rahul Gandhi you get a feeling that it is not just a routine election; everyone is training their guns on a bigger common enemy The refrain: a victory for the Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance here will be the beginning of the end of Prime Minister Narendra Modi "We don’t want daangas (communal violence) It’s not in Uttar Pradesh’s culture; leaving in harmony with the spirit of bhaichara is" said some Many in the crowd nodded in agreement "The victory of the alliance in the state will pave the way for a change of guard in Delhi" said one though in not exact words Considerable energy went into calling the prime minister a liar He made tall promises in 2014 but have failed to deliver on all of them specifically on creating jobs and black money said someone from the Congress Rahul Gandhi has been playing the ‘liar’ theme for quite some time now His today’s speech offered no variation PM Narendra Modi File Image AP The message is clear: the opposition would make riots and poor delivery on promises its major talking points in 2019 And the singular target would be Narendra Modi who is now synonymous with the BJP and whatever it represents If the mood in Meerut is some indicator then people won’t mind making amends for 2014 whenever the opportunity presents itself It is interesting that the prime minister would be the sole talking point of the entire opposition in a state election While the public rally was in progress at Nauchandi in neighbouring Ghaziabad BSP leader Mayawati was going hammer and tongs at Modi Such attack from the opposition is anticipated when a party is in power The BJP is neither in power here nor does it share power with some other party So what gives The BJP has walked into some kind of a trap Modi versus all could be pleasant for the ego of the person himself but it does not augur well for the future of the party Personality cult has its serious limitations If it has any merits it is not visible yet The next obvious target of the opposition would be the idea of a strong leader propagated so vociferously by the party Akhilesh in his public speeches has already asked of Modi to talk less and work more It won’t be long before other parties started asking questions what strong leadership means in the first place Moreover the overt or covert support to violent fringe Hindutva groups from certain BJP leaders has started to boomerang on the party It has lost the popular goodwill and earned a poor reputation Now all parties have started talking about communalisation of minds and senseless violence while they themselves could be in some way responsible for it Modi for them is the soft target again His rise to power is responsible for the proliferation of the activities of fringe Hindutva groups they conveniently argue We notice this over and over in the approach of all opposition political leaders in this election But that is how it is For bad or for good it has to be Modi He is the party It should not surprise that no other leader from the BJP including the likes of Rajnath Singh even registers on the mind in the context of the election this time It is Uttar Pradesh that propelled Modi to the top job in 2014 Seventy-three seats was indeed a stupendous achievement But again it is the same state which can throw a nasty surprise A loss in this election would set in motion several forces antagonistic to him including those within his own party This is not to suggest that BJP has already lost the battle here but the political cloud looks ominous The opposition clueless earlier now knows where to hit The BJP needs to provide answers Written by Ila Patnaik | Published: September 3 2013 2:17 am Related News Volatility is inevitable India should prepare its response to the winding up of QE The dominant theme at the annual meeting of central bankers and economists last week at Jackson HoleWyomingwas the impact of Quantitative Easing (QE) tapering on emerging markets (EM) Central bankers from emerging economies pressed Fed officials to consider the volatility in emerging economies arising from changes in the Feds monetary policy stance But Fed officials reminded them that their mandate was only to serve the US economy Emerging markets would have to adjust Knowing that the world will be a more volatile place gives us time to prepare Indias policy response to QE tapering should be prepared in advance so that we do not see more of the kind of knee-jerk reactions that were seen last month It is expected that September may see more forward guidance by the Fedrather than actual tapering The pace and timing of the tapering are likely to remain uncertain for many months This could result in huge volatility in global financial markets One important question for India will be whether to respond to the pressure on the currency and if sohow Firstlet us look at what lies ahead The objective of the US Feds monetary policy is to maintain price stability and achieve maximum employment The Federal Open Market Committee is responsible for taking decisions on how to achieve these objectives In normal timesthis was done by cutting or raising the policy interest rate On December 162008 the policy interest rate was cut to the lowest possible level of 0-025 per cent After thisthere was no scope of cutting interest rates and the Fed eased monetary policy by purchasing financial assetsthereby stimulating growthpopularly known as QE The Fed announced its first round of purchases in November 2008 and started buying bonds from March 2009 There have subsequently been two more rounds of QEin 2010 and then in 2012as the US economy did not show signs of recovery The Fed is currently buying $40 billion of Mortgage Backed Securities and $45 billion worth of US treasury bonds per month Tapering refers to a reduction in the purchase of such securities by the US Fed The US economy has recovered slowly in the first half of 2013with the recovery expected to be faster in the second half In Q2 2013the US economy grew at 17 per cent Growth in Q3 and Q4 is expected to be 25 per cent Inflation is around the desired level of 2 per cent The unemployment rate has fallen from 79 per cent at the beginning of the year to 74 per cent in July The Fed has indicated that after the unemployment rate reaches 65 per centit may consider reducing the pace of its balancesheet expansion Howevereven though the Fed has indicated that it could reduce the pace of monetary expansionan unemployment rate of 65 per cent will not trigger the tapering One reason is that the US unemployment rate is falling not so much because jobs are increasingbut because of lower labour force participation Less people say they are actively looking for jobssomething that is likely caused by the long recession The Fed remains worried that merely a lower unemployment rate may not signal a healthier economy Even if the tapering starts in the next couple of monthsit will only be the beginning of the process There will be a reduction in purchasesthen stopping purchases and laterat some pointsales of treasuries to reduce the size of the Fed balancesheet to tighten monetary policy For the last five yearswhen the Fed was expanding its balancesheetthere was a large flow of capital to emerging economies in search for higher returns Now the prospect of higher US interest rates is attracting capital back to the US The top 20 traded EM currencies have depreciated on average 68 per cent since May 12013 The depreciation has been most pronounced for countries which need more dollar inflows on the capital account to finance their current account deficits The currencies of South AfricaIndia and Brazil have fallen more than 15 per cent against the dollar since May 12013 Looking forwardthe markets may see more capital flow volatility Flows respond to the probability of the timing and speed of QE taperingwhich is estimated by market participants depending on their forecasts about the US economy When US data is different from these forecaststhis probability changes This results in inflows and outflows to the USespecially from EMs This causes high volatility in EM currencies and markets The data to watch for are those for US jobs growthlabour force participationinflationmortgage rates and new home salesamong others In Augustin the face of acute pressure on the rupeethe government and the RBI valiantly tried to

think carefully about its strategy Changing the economys fundamental weaknesses overnight is nearly impossible The weaker rupee ishowevergood both for current account adjustment and for making Indian assets more competitive Less friction for foreigners who invest in financial markets should be part of the strategy It is also very important not to send out wrong signals Only those short-term policies should be proposed that are consistent with longer term objectives of growthglobal integrationrule of law and better financial regulation The entire cabinetall ministriesregulators and the bureaucracy must be on the same page about the governments decision to attract foreign capital so that innumerable unnecessary restrictions that are being placed today on foreign investors can be removed The government must prepare a carefully coordinatedcoherent and consistent action plan to adjust to the QE tapering and resulting volatility The writerprofessor at the National Institute of
