long-standing Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute from Tuesday a day before the 25th anniversary of the demolition of themedieval-era structure A specially constituted bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices Ashok Bhushan and Abdul Nazeer will be hearing a total of 13 appeals filed against the 2010 judgement of the Allahabad High Court in four civil suits Representational image AP The high court had then ruled a three-way division of the disputed 277 acre area at Ayodhya among the parties — the Sunni Waqf Board the Nirmohi Akhara and the Lord Ram Lalla A sect of Muslims under the banner of Shia Central Waqf Board of Uttar Pradesh had earlier approached the court offering a solution that a mosque could be built in a Muslim-dominated area at a "reasonable distance" from the disputed site in Ayodhya However its intervention was opposed by the All India Sunni Waqf Board which had claimed that judicial adjudication between the two sects had already been done in 1946 by declaring the mosque which was demolished on 6 December 1992 as one which belongs to the Sunnis Recently a group of civil rights activists also moved the apex court seeking intervention in the Ayodhya dispute and urged it to consider the issue saying it is not just a dispute over property but has several other aspects which would have far-reaching effects on the "secular fabric of the country" In pursuance to the apex court’s earlier direction the Yogi Adityanath government has submitted English translation of exhibits and documents likely to be relied upon as these were in eight different

General Tushar Mehta will represent the Uttar Pradesh government Senior advocates Kapil Sibal Anoop George Chaudhari Rajeev Dhavan and Sushil Jain will represent other parties including All India Sunni Waqf Board and Nirmohi Akhara The top court had on 11 August asked the UP government to complete within 10 weeks the translation of the evidence recorded for adjudication of the title dispute in the high court It had said it would not allow the matter to take any shape other than the civil appeals and would adopt the same procedure as was done by the high court BJP leader Subramanian Swamy an intervenor in the matter had attempted to raise the issue of fundamental right of religion of the Hindus under Article 25 of the Constitution Many of the original plantiffs and defendants in the matter including Mohd Hashim who was the first person to take the matter to the apex court have died A three-judge bench of the Allahabad High Hourt in a 2:1 majority ruling had said the land be

Uttar Pradesh are defecting to the BJP after reading the writing on the wall Other Congress seniors are refusing to run for the Lok Sabha altogether The hasty marriage between the Left and Amma ended quickly in tears for the Left Mamata Banerjee was stood up by Anna Hazare when she thought they had pledged eternal union Ram Vilas Paswan left the cosy secular embrace of Lalu Prasad and hitched up with the BJP Mulayam Singh Yadav has taken the view that if one member of a family is part of the SP the entire biradari has to be The Congress well recognises the importance of family So despite Rahul Gandhi’s plans to clean up the selection process of candidates it has stuck to the family line in Maharashtra; so wives sons nephews and grandsons have been inducted All this frantic coupling and decoupling will only last till May 16 Once the results are announced the entire merry-go-round will start anew Indian politics is an ideology-free zone Even the so called secular-communal divide is only for show till the votes are counted Memories need to be very short Thus Mamata has sweetly forgotten her part in the BJP/NDA government and now denounces the BJP for being communalist Paswan has shown the way the parties will drift as and when the BJP emerges as the largest single party The cruel reality of Indian electoral politics is that the two national parties get around 300-325 seats between them The other 220-245 seats are divided among the other 45 parties which inhabit the Lok Sabha The third largest party achieves 25 seats if it is lucky The Left got around that number in 2009 Dreams of becoming prime minister are aplenty but they need a reality check Mamata has just had that experience The TMC is a West Bengal party and cannot aspire to be a national one with or without Hazare Mayawati also has dreams of winning seats for the BSP beyond Uttar Pradesh but that too will prove elusive Jayalalithaa is wise in not attempting to reach out of Tamil Nadu Sharad Pawar knows that the NCP has barely any clout beyond Maharashtra Only the Aam Aadmi Party has ambitions to be a national party right away Hence the shenanigans of Arvind Kejriwal — who needs a headline a day if not every hour on TV to achieve his aim The haste of putting up 350 candidates around the country has meant a sacrifice of all the lofty principles AAP aspired to in Delhi So whoever they can get with even a slight media presence has been given a ticket That is nothing unusual In Indian politics some names can drift to any party and get elected — Kalyan Singh and Amar Singh are examples AAP can be a national party or it can be a principled one I hope it chooses to be a national party since its principles are tiresome clichés of impractical idealists It will garner a respectable vote share but not many seats as outside Delhi-Gurgaon-Noida it has no real depth of presence Ten seats will be a creditable showing 20 a landslide Of course had they not resigned but shown some achievements in Delhi they would have been taken more seriously The real prize awaits AAP after the election If as the polls forecast the Congress ends up with double digits then it will break apart Many more grandees in the Congress with regional strength will start their own party on the lines laid down by the NCP There will then be room for a national party to fill the gap If AAP does not disintegrate due to Kejriwal’s ego trips then it may yet succeed the Indira National Congress Amen For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Agencies |

kahaani/ Hum Hindustani Expectations abound for a naya daur There are several loose ends on the macro side that need to be sorted out More than the bureaucracy the thinking is entrenched in old boxes Narendra Modi has promised change; the delivery time is now The RBI: A new relationship must evolve between the prime minister ministry of finance and the RBI There are several small steps involved Recognise that the RBI is independent of the ministry of finance (MoF) in name and blame Recognise that the incumbent Raghuram Rajan has the ability to be not only the finest RBI governor we have ever had but also potentially to be one of the finest in the world Thus comments like we will change the governor or he will toe our line or that interest rates must be lowered because the MoF thinks so do not belong in a new India Nowadays such comments should be considered trash and deleted from the recycle bin So what actions will constitute the writing of a nayi kahaani Monetary policy to be made by the RBI and true independence accorded Interest rates will be determined by the RBI as it sees fit In exchange the RBI governor will make twice-a-year appearances before a joint session of Parliament where he will be grilled questioned and if need be “cooked” over his/ her policies There is no direct or indirect linkage between the RBI governor and the finance minister but the two hold at least once-a-month meetings to discuss monetary and fiscal matters facing the country The meetings and stature should be one of equals Fiscal policy: A lot of work has already been done with regard to indirect taxes and it is encouraging to note that implementation of the GST has been accorded top priority But a lot remains to be done The prime focus will temporarily shift to the presentation of the Union budget in early July It should be a vision document but must contain the following features Most importantly that taxation is not a morality play not a conscience keeper for left-liberals or bureaucrats/ economists weaned on Nehruvian economics The thinking that hey I paid my moral dues at the community temple by asking for increases in dividend tax capital gains tax corporate and income tax is so day before yesterday The excuse that the government did not collect money because people did not comply with your morality will not wash away any sins any more The prime purpose of fiscal policy is to maximise revenue and minimise expenditure The former involves the plugging of loopholes as does the latter Corruption is present in the loopholes So how does one maximise tax revenue By maximising growth and minimising tax rates Obviously the minimum tax rate should not be zero So what is to be done New tax policy — zero dividend tax all capital gains tax at 75 per cent (short-term long-term property) and zero securities transaction tax One needs to do a complete rethink in order to achieve a Jupiter-style velocity into the new world Did you know that the government does not publish or allow publication of data pertaining to income tax returns which income group paid how much tax These data were published albeit in limited form till a few years back Until UPA 2 disallowed or prohibited the practice Time to make such data freely available so one can actually witness the fact that the rich have the highest compliance rate Personal income tax: A complete overhaul of the tax system with only two tax rates — 10 and 20 per cent This will increase compliance and substantially increase revenue Corporate tax: This should be restructured according to best practices in the world (which most emphatically rules out the US) and with two goals in mind — maximisation of revenue and global competitiveness At present Indian corporations are among the highest effective tax-rate payers in the world where effective is defined as the ratio of taxes paid over income made This effective tax rate is at present around 25 per cent; it should be closer to 18 per cent Essentially what needs to be done is a lowering of tax rates and an increase in efficiency of tax collection An increase in tax compliance that will accompany lower tax rates will also mean substantially lower corruption Expenditure policy: Try surgery The broad statistics on fiscal deficit are as follows (and it is surprising how many tax experts and policy economists and especially market economists are unaware of the empirical magnitudes of this “identity”) The consolidated Centre-plus-state fiscal deficit is around 8 per cent of GDP; 5 at the Centre and 3 in the states Expenditure (state plus Centre) is around 30 per cent of the GDP So revenue is 22 per cent of which non-tax revenue is 4 per cent of GDP Implementation of the GST should allow extra revenue of 1 to 2 per cent of GDP; a substantial reduction in welfare or in-the-name-of-the-poor subsidies to only 2 per cent of GDP will save another 2 percentage points Linking the subsidies to cash transfers and Aadhaar will mean that the bottom third of the population will get nearly five times the money they presently receive via misguided Nehru-Gandhi socialist programmes like PDS and MGNREGA A rationalisation of welfare expenditures will allow for substantial increases in expenditures on infrastructure and public health especially on water and sanitation (including cleaning of the Ganga and other rivers) This will allow the Central fiscal deficit to be less than 3 per cent in two years and less than 2 per cent in three That is the nayi kahaani and we have not even begun to talk about the positive effects that will occur from increased GDP growth This new tax and expenditure policy is win-win stupid You will only recognise it to be such if you leave your pretentious morals at home PS: There is some disturbing news If reports are to be believed the BJP government (or old Nehru-Gandhi bureaucrats out to stump Modi ) has stated that they cannot act now on the draconian retrospective tax legislation
