in the maritime neighbourhood As a rising China reshapes the geopolitics of the Indian Ocean India’s natural geographic and strategic primacy is no longer assured As the world’s second largest economy and soon to be the first China’s interests in the Indian Ocean are growing Beijing must therefore be expected to secure them purposefully China’s growing naval power and its vigorous maritime diplomacy are doing precisely that No wonder China’s economic and strategic profile is rising among the island states that straddle the sea lines of communication in the Indian Ocean The strategic location of these island states has always made them critical for military power projection by extra-regional actors That the NDA government was conscious of the impact of China’s rise on its neighbourhood was evident in prime minister designate Narendra Modi’s decision to invite all member countries of the South Asian Association of Regional Cooperation to attend the his swearing in ceremony at the end of May There was one surprising addition to the guest list—the Prime minister of Mauritius that is not a member of the SAARC forum The invitation to Navin Ramgoolam underscored Delhi’s strategic imagination of Mauritius as a very special neighbour of India If Swaraj put Dhaka and Kathmandu at the top of her travel schedule Prime Minister Narendra Modi chose Bhutan and Nepal as the first destinations for his bilateral visits abroad Swaraj’s visit to Port Louis and Male is an integral part of the government’s “neighbours first” foreign policy Despite the acute awareness of the Chinese quest for strategic influence in both Maldives and Mauritius Delhi has dropped the ball on both countries during the UPA years The big question now is whether the NDA government could put the two relationships back on track Modi’s predecessor Dr Manmohan Singh had no problem recognising the growing strategic significance of the Indian Ocean The UPA government activated the moribund regional framework for the Indian Ocean now known as the IORA expanded the scope of the biennial ‘Milan’ naval exercises in the Bay of Bengal and launched new security initiatives like the Indian Ocean Naval Symposium Delhi had also begun to intensify its bilateral security cooperation with key countries in the littoral and set up new trilateral forums like the one on maritime domain awareness between India Sri Lanka and the Maldives The problem was that the demand for security cooperation with India far outstripped the UPA government’s capacity to supply it Worse still the lack of internal coherence within the UPA government meant Delhi was prone to score self-goals As the finance ministry adopted a confrontational approach towards Mauritius on tax related issues Delhi could not organise a more balanced and productive approach that took into account to India’s multiple security interests there and resolved issues through a quiet negotiation In the internal political struggles that unfolded in Maldives in recent years India’s has erred backing the wrong political horses Male today feels emboldened to throw out Indian companies and play the China card against Delhi For nearly a decade now China has been knocking on the doors of the Indian Ocean island states seeking greater strategic cooperation President Hu Jintao concluded his two trips to Africa in 2007 and 2009 with visits to Seychelles and Mauritius respectively His successor Xi Jinping in September stopped over in Male and Colombo Besides laying the foundation for a deeper economic cooperation Xi announced China’s plans for stronger defence ties with both countries For too long Delhi has taken for granted its centrality in the Indian Ocean littoral and its long-standing strategic relationships with island states like Seychelles Mauritius Maldives and Sri Lanka It is now up to the Modi government to develop a vigorous strategy that responds to India’s new maritime imperatives in the Indian Ocean

commission came under serious reformatory scrutiny Related News It might be the end of the road for the Planning Commission Despite having been in power for more than a month the BJP government has chosen not to appoint new members to the commission a decision viewed as portentous The political consensus appears to be that the Planning Commission is now a zombie — well past its natural life and surviving only as a nuisance The Planning Commission began its career in March 1950 Its mandate was to study the economy allocate resources between sectors and states and chart the course for long-term economic development It was the culmination of efforts by Indian nationalists to institute a planning body at the heart of government In 1938 the Indian National Congress had established the national planning committee By 1944 the British Indian government had its own planning and development department There was also a profusion of “paper plans” — S N Agarwal’s Gandhian Plan MN Roy’s People’s Plan and even one drawn up by India’s leading industrialists dubbed the Bombay Plan Planning was seen as deliverance and India was primed for planning The Planning Commission grew into a power centre within independent India’s government Its prestige owed much to the significance Nehru attached to its work During these years it became the institutional face of the Indian development story at home and abroad Not satisfied with authoring the economic agenda the commission believed that the idea of planning had to win popular support Along with other arms of government it embarked on nationwide “plan-publicity” campaigns to stoke enthusiasm for planning The aim in celebrating “Plan Day” and “Plan Week” was to make all Indians “plan-conscious” participants in the project of national advancement During the commission’s halcyon years Yojana Bhawan its headquarters in central Delhi attracted economists from near and far India’s situation as a poor newly sovereign country that had fused democracy and planning made it a laboratory for testing the theories and techniques of development economics a field then in its infancy India’s policy of non-alignment found expression in the commission’s openness to conversing with economists from both sides of the Iron Curtain India wasn’t just a recipient of expertise from abroad Its successes in the 1950s especially in industrial production drew the attention of developing nations such as Ghana Egypt Yugoslavia and Indonesia In addition to soliciting experts from India these countries sent teams to examine the work of the Planning Commission in the fields of science and technology industry and community development The questions raised today about the Planning Commission’s remit echo an infamous episode in its history In the summer of 1950 the government was forced to accept the resignation of its finance minister The minister in question John Matthai had only recently formally introduced the Planning Commission to the nation in a speech in Parliament In a series of angry interviews Matthai revealed that his resignation was precipitated by the disquieting escalation of the commission’s powers It had begun encroaching on ministerial prerogatives he said by participating in cabinet meetings and involving itself in day-to-day administration Further the hierarchy within the commission designated the finance minister as simply an ordinary member — on par with the civil servants who formed the majority and outranked by the deputy chairman In effect he warned it was becoming a “parallel cabinet” Not only would this “weaken” the finance ministry it could also he feared gradually erode the cabinet’s powers Today in contrast to 1950 the commission is on the wane A jostle between ministries and the commission is likely to yield in favour of the former Since Nehru’s time the commission’s stock has dwindled as it progressively receded from public view It was embarrassed when in the mid-1980s the then prime minister Rajiv Gandhi referred to its members (including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh) as a “bunch of jokers” The BJP election manifesto of 1998 declared that it “opposed senseless central planning” But it was only under UPA 2 that the commission came under serious reformatory scrutiny Noting its changed role in the Indian economy over the past few decades the commission’s website concedes that it has moved from “highly centralised planning” to “indicative planning” Downsizing the Planning Commission would be consistent with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent moves to fulfil his campaign chant of “maximum governance minimum government” It should come as no surprise then if in doing so he invoked Sardar Patel’s reservations about the commission It would underscore his allegiance to Patel’s muscular style of leadership put a distance between him and the policies of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty and perhaps even offer a wistful vision of what might have been had India trodden a different path The scepticism about the utility of a Planning Commission reflects how far opinion has shifted over the last six decades In an altered polity and economy centralised planning — an idea that had once gripped the minds of many Indian freedom fighters and nation-builders — has lost traction Once capable of dethroning ministers it finds itself today in unfamiliar abeyance nervously waiting on news of its own survival The writer is a research scholar in history at Princeton University US [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download
