His conjecture of the leakage was 85 per centthat isonly 15 per cent of the money meant for the poor actually reached the poor But that was almost 30 years ago Certainlythe situation must have improved since then as India has become richergained more experience and become less corrupt All-India National Sample Surveys have been asking questions about food consumption and the source (PDS or non-PDS) and price of purchase since 1983 Reported below are some statistics from the latest available 2009/10 survey It would be worthwhile if the principal (but not principled) opposition partythe BJPwere to look at these figuresbut I realise that that might be expecting a bit too much According to government accountsit spent Rs 60000 crore (Rs 58500 to be precisebut numbers are rounded up) on the PDS system in 2009/10 The NSS data reveals that the poor received Rs 14000 in the form of subsidised food (primarily wheat and rice) and the non-poor (almost 70 per cent of the populationTendulkar poverty line definition) received Rs 23000 crore An equal amountRs 23000 crorewent for administration of this system So the poor received (14000 divided by 60000) only 23 per cent of the money spent on their behalf Another way to look at the existing PDS programme is to examine the cost of poverty removal Calculations suggest that operation PDS lifted about 30 million out of povertythat isbecause of the food subsidy received by the poor30 million individuals became not-poor In 2009/10the average consumption of the poor was 20 per cent less than the poverty line of approximately Rs 800 per person per month Which means that it took only Rs 160 a monthor Rs 1920 a yearto help the average poor person become non-poor For 30 million such individualsthe expenditure needed wasthereforeRs 5760 crore The government spent exactly 10 times the amount Surelythis money could have been better spent for the poor Surelythis is a statistic that the BJP can use in opposition to the FSB Almost surelythey will not use thisor any other evidenceto object to the bill Because when all is said and donethere is not a rupee difference between the Congress and the BJP A better understanding of the political economy of the BJP and the Congress can be gleaned from the just-concluded BCCI meeting Just notice the following three parallels The BCCI meeting did not conform to any known standards of governance; as the above evidence makes abundantly clearneither does the PDSand nor will the FSB The objective of the BCCI is to provide a non-corrupt environment for cricket and to be above-board in its accounts Both the BJP and the Congress opposed tooth-and-nail submission to Right to Information scrutinyjust like the BCCI Even important officials of the BCCIBJP and Congress are the same Arun Jaitley and Rajeev Shukla at the just-concluded BCCI cover-up seemed like twin brothers protecting the family fortune In the interests of the poorand cricketthere are straightforward solutions At presentIndia spends upwards of Rs 200000 crore on subsidies meant for the poor The poor probably receive no more than a tenth of such subsidies Alert the poor do not drive diesel-powered SUVsand if they cant even access subsidised foodgrainseven god cant help them with the other subsidies Most certainly not with the principled BJP and Congress lot that infest our Parliament Think about it: Rs 200000 crore well targeted at the bottom third of the population will mean Rs 6000 a yearor Rs 16 extra per day for each poor person a near 50 per cent increase in the per day consumption of the poor Certainly worth a try but it wont happenbecause there are too many political partiesand politicianswho profit from the present non-transparent and non-accountable procedures Yet another parallel with

establishment (Source: Express photo) Related News At a public event for the release of my new book Anticipating India in Mumbai on May 6 I was asked if now that I had anticipated the rise of Narendra Modi accurately could I also list the five meteorites that could impede his government I wasn’t able to name five right away But I mentioned a couple not knowing they were already lurking around the corner Frankly I have also been in the business far too long to not be conscious of the perils of falling in love with the “anticipating” business just because you got a few things right The beauty of Indian politics after all is that it has its set predictable patterns by now but it can also make you look stupid The first two meteorites were easier to foresee because they conformed to a set pattern I had said the first distraction (I choose that word carefully — distraction not danger) Modi will have to deal with will be the fact that the ideological empire of Nagpur will compulsively strike back Not merely in terms of the embarrassing but frivolous glory of cow’s urine/ dung desi ghee Vedic research type of thing but even substantive issues The second that it is one thing to have a mass leader win you power in a presidential-style election But the personality cult it unleashes will be difficult to shake off And sycophancy is not the monopoly of one political party or coalition Both of these have confronted Modi in his very first week as prime minister and are testing both his statesmanship and patience After winning such a clear affirmative verdict the last thing he needs is to fritter away his freshly earned political capital with needless and irrelevant controversy The first and the silliest was initiated by Jitendra Singh the new Union minister of state in the prime minister’s office and the department of personnel and training and elected to the Lok Sabha from Udhampur in Jammu and Kashmir He will now make history as the minister who grabbed the first headlines in this cabinet in spite of his low rank and relative anonymity He said the process of discussion on the abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution had already begun with talks among the various stakeholders This had many immediate consequences First of all it brought Omar Abdullah down and out a new life almost like a batsman after a fielder drops a skier He was back on Twitter where he spends most of his time but now with an argument that impressed even his fellow Kashmiris Which stakeholders was Mr MoS talking to when nobody had consulted him the elected chief minister of the state An entirely untimely and unnecessary argument broke out on social media and TV channels and took away some shine from the first couple of days of the new government Before this little fire had been put out the other meteorite flew in: sycophancy Three BJP state governments Rajasthan Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat announced they were introducing chapters on the life of the new prime minister in their textbooks Now you’d agree that this is not unprecedented That the “other” side has had its six decades of doctoring our textbooks deifying the Dynasty so why should you begrudge “this” side doing the same thing It is just that it is very early days yet the new prime minister has a job to do and school textbooks like Article 370 and going ahead the uniform civil code and Ayodhya are irresolvable contentious ideological issues And while the RSS may think they are at the top of its agenda Modi was astute enough to not employ these in his campaign and would not even claim that he got this mandate to implement them even if he may feel strongly on each issue He is too shrewd to not be conscious that he has been elected prime minister of India and not the Sangh Parivar He has now done well to put out both fires Senior ministers have calmed the Article 370 issue and Modi himself has forbidden his party’s states from inserting chapters on him in their textbooks He has also done well to ask his ministers to avoid wasting time renaming the UPA’s schemes and focus on making them more efficient instead The greatest blessing for a newly installed government is that it can pretty much own the headlines at least for the first few weeks You can’t have breathless indiscipline of this kind ruin them Modi in fact has to go a step further His challenge is to change the mindset of a chronic opposition to the establishment Whatever the view of the RSS he has to hold a little tutorial on Article 370 for his cabinet colleagues most of whom you can be sure haven’t even read those hundred-odd words All Article 370 does is limit the Centre’s and Parliament’s immediate jurisdiction over J&K to issues specifically listed in the Instrument of Accession signed by Maharaja Hari Singh with Lord Mountbatten on October 26-27 1947 merging his state with India under certain preconditions An abrogation of Article 370 howsoever irritating you may find it today implies repudiation of the Instrument of Accession That’s why Omar Abdullah is essentially right when he says that if Article 370 is abolished J&K will no longer be part of the Union While he as chief minister needs to be more sensitive to the dangers of making such arguments in 140 characters that brook no nuance he makes a solid constitutional point What other principle will you use to keep Kashmir with India if not this instrument based on the Government of India Act 1935 that empowered rulers of Indian princely states to merge with India through such an agreement Will the principle be jiski laathi uski bhains (might is right) Why do we need to even try that now It has worked for us since 1947 India kept Hyderabad even though the Nizam wanted to go to Pakistan because of its Hindu majority and lack of contiguity and Kashmir because the ruler wanted it in spite of its Muslim majority and contiguity with Pakistan Over time Kashmir has become more integrated with India not less and particularly as India has become more federalised Article 370 is losing relevance (The governments of West Bengal Tamil Nadu and the BJP in Assam each of them has stalled sovereign foreign policy decisions Imagine the furore if J&K had done something similar) That’s why Jitendra Singh has scored a self-goal by reopening the issue and reviving demands in the Valley to strengthen it instead Brave man he must be to question such a key covenant of the Constitution within 24 hours of taking the oath to protect it as a minister Unless he confused the “sangh ke mantri” in the Hindi text of the oath to mean the mantri of the Sangh in Nagpur and not of the Union of India We know that it would be impossible for Modi to publicly state that he is putting these ideological issues in cold storage He is more powerful than any prime minister in the last 25 years But he is no Deng Xiaoping yet to be able to say something like since this generation does not have the wisdom to resolve these issues let us leave it to a wiser generation But he also cannot let mavericks damage his precious political capital The Americans solved a similar problem in an entirely different context the complex START (Strategic Arms Reduction Talks) with the Soviets in Geneva To prevent silly chatter and static they printed set answers to the questions most likely to be asked on 3×5 cards told all delegates to carry them in the top pockets of their jackets and to simply read from them A set of similar 3×5 cards for the waistcoat pockets of Modi’s new ministers would be a useful beginning sg@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion
