Minister Manohar Parrikar has written to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee expressing "deep pain" over her allegations against the army for its recent exercise at toll gates in the state and said they can "adversely" impact the morale of the armed forces In a strongly worded letter Parrikar said that while political parties and politicians may have the luxury of making "wild and unsubstantiated allegations against each other" one needs to be extremely careful while referring to the armed forces "Your allegations in this regard run the risk of adversely impacting the morale of the country’s armed forces and the same were not expected from a person of your standing and experience in public life" the Minister said Banerjee who has been opposing the Centre’s demonetization move had accused it of deploying the army at toll plazas in West Bengal without informing the state government and described it as "unprecedented" and "a very serious situation worse than Emergency" The Trinamool Congress had refused to leave her office in Kolkata till the Army men were withdrawn from toll plazas and had asked whether it was an "army coup" drawing sharp reaction from the Centre Manohar Parrikar PTI Terming it as "avoidable controversy" over the exercise carried out by the Eastern Command in West Bengal and other states under the jurisdiction to collect information about the movement of heavy vehicles at toll gates Parrikar in his letter to Banerjee dated 8 December said it is carried out by all formations of the army all across the country for many years He said the exercises are held as per the dates convenient to the army in consultation with agencies of the state government "I have been deeply pained by your allegations as reported in the media If only you had enquired with the agencies concerned of the state government you would have come to know of the extensive correspondence between the Army and the state agencies including the joint inspection of sites carried out by them" Parrikar said in his letter to Banerjee Describing Indian army as the "most disciplined institution of the country" he said the nation is proud of their "professionalism and apolitical conduct" He added that the army authorities were forced to put the record straight in the matter by presenting evidence of their communication with the state agencies concerned including

download Indian Express App More Related NewsAmit Shah — Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s bad cop — was elected unopposed as BJP chief for the second term with 17 nominations last week But the word ‘unopposed’ shouldn’t be taken here too literally because BJP veterans like LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi gave the meeting a miss And now with Yashwant Sinha’s remarks (that he subsequently withdrew saying his words were misinterpreted) about how the Modi government was beginning to resemble Indira Gandhi’s governmentquestions are emerging about just what is going on in the party ranks "The people of India will consign him to the dust you just have to wait for the next elections We all know how the people of India reacted to the Emergency which was the most concerted democratic effort in our country to still the voice of dissent" Let’s go back to when Modi the then Gujarat CM was annointed as the Prime Ministerial candidate for the General Elections in 2014 Party veterans were not too happy with the party decision and they made it amply clear Having skipped the Goa meet of the party where the then Gujarat chief minister was elevated to the post of the party’s poll campaign chief Advani skipped the meet where Modi was elevated as the PM candidate The BJP leadership beat a hasty retreat back in September 2013 after the major announcement and did not make any differences within the party public But Advani had already fired his first missile at the party and had said that he was disappointed in the manner in which the party was functioning Veteran BJP leaders LK Advani and Yashwant Sinha PTI The party patriarch (Advani) has not been able to fathom that the person he had helped rise in politics had attained a position that overshadowed that of his mentor Even though Advani remained in the party the sense of mistrust developed to such an extent between the two that the party patriarch thought at one point that it was not safe for him to fight the Lok Sabha polls from his constituency Gandhinagar He even thought of shifting to a safer bait to Bhopal but ultimately fought and won from Gandhinagar after Modi assured him of his victory Joshi was also made to run pillar to post literally but his attempts to get the party ticket to fight the Lok Sabha poll from Varanasi failed He was later allowed to contest from Kanpur while Modi himself fought from Varanasi "When you came to meet me this afternoon to inform me of the Parliamentary Board meeting I had expressed my pain and had expressed my disappointment on your manner on functioning" Advani had told Rajnath Singh in a letter "I had told you that I will consider whether I should come to the meeting and express my views or not I have decided that it is best that I do not attend the meeting" Advani had written further Advani’s fears of giving prominence to new crop of BJP leaders was not unfounded The senior leaders who held key portfolios during Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s tenure were decisively sidelined ever since Modi took over as the Prime Minister and Shah was annointed as the BJP chief on the basis of age criterion Their anger was termed as rumblings of "disgruntled leaders" who felt they have not got their due after BJP came to power in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections The BJP troika of LK Advani Murli Manohar Joshi and Atal Bihari Vajpayee were soon ‘elevated’ to the Margdarshak Mandal in August 2014 was largely seen as a not so covert way of keeping Advani and Joshi out of any decision making body of the party rather than a promotion But Advani got his chance soon After the massive drubbing that the party received in the Bihar Assembly Election last year the party’s Margdarshak Mandal issued a statement: "Bihar results show that no lesson has been learnt from the fiasco in Delhi The principal reason for Bihar defeat is the way the party has been emasculated in the last year The review should cover the way the party is forced to kow-tow to a handful and how its consensual character has been destroyed The review must not be done by the very persons who have managed and have been responsible for the campaign in Bihar To say that everyone is responsible for the defeat is to ensure that no one is held responsible" The veterans faced immense criticism and the infighting within the party came into full public glare At a time when the party should have shown unity and solidarity behind the current leadership "the public airing of grievances does not enhance the stature of these senior leaders" After the Bihar debacle Chief Minister Nitish Kumar invited LK Advani for the swearing-in ceremony whereas both PM Modi and Amit Shah were not in the list of the invitees And now Amit Shah’s re-election as the party president Two former party presidents stayed away from the colourful ceremony attended by central ministers chief ministers of BJP-ruled states and party office-bearers Speaking to The Indian Express sources claimed that Advani and Joshi were not informed about the programme which happened at the BJP headquarters It was widely reported that Amit Shah’s re-appointment as the BJP chief was partly because the PM himself was extremely keen on his man Friday and Shah has always had the backing of the RSS Sources told Livemint that although the BJP leadership said there would be more discussion in the party before decision-making and that members of the Margdarshak Mandal would be consulted no meeting or talks have been held so far A BJP leader considered close to the veterans told the publication that the party’s reluctance to invite them for the Sunday ceremony showed “there is not likely to be any change in Shah’s style of functioning” That Advani wasn’t there to ‘bless’ the party president was a confirmation if any was needed of his total eclipse from the saffron horizon A logical yet bitter step perhaps for a party stalwart who has long been marginalised under the new dispensation New Delhi: The government on Monday hit back at the Opposition for accusing it of encouraging incidents of mob lynching saying that such incidents happen in the country irrespective of any government and claimed that the issue was raked up only to tarnish the image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi which ultimately goes against the country Prime Minister Narendra Modi AFP Responding to an around six hour debate on the issue in Lok Sabha Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju appealed the members to rise above politics to condemn such incidents and asked the state governments to take tough measures if such incidents take place in their respective states Not satisfied with the minister’s response the Congress the Left parties the Samajawadi Party and AIMIM walked out of the Lok Sabha "There is trend of such incidents in country Be it any government at the state or at the Centre The figures also suggest it If government changes the figure remains same" Rijiju said citing figures of such reported incidents against Dalits and Muslims in various states in last five years He said that the issue was raked up for debate only to target the image of the central government under Narendra Modi whose popularity is increasing not only in the country but outside too "Since they have no issue they try to create issues Sometimes they rake up issue of intolerance Sometimes they organise protests like ‘Not in My Name’ They raise issues like attack on churches Now they have come with issue of mob lynching "Three years back corruption was a big issue but this has vanished from political sphere due to Prime Minister’s stand against So in lack of issues they come with such issues and then stage walk out of the House" he said The minister said that the country is run by Constitution and the Prime Minister is performing his duties as per it "All the incidents happened in states and the Centre has issued an advisory to act hard against the culprits The prime minister can’t take over state administration We are working under the provisions of the constitution" Rijiju said He said that the Opposition has demanded a debate on the issue for political benefits only Rijiju said that 24 states are already having laws on cow slaughter while the five states including Kerala and one union territory have not yet made laws on it "These states should also have their own laws" he said The minister said that the prime minister has spoken over the issue and it should be respected "We will not get such opportuniy to have prime minister like him (Modi) Such occasions come rarely in the history of any country Today India is ranked among top powerful countries If you target and tarnish the image of the prime minister ultimately country’s image will be tarnished " Rijiju said Written

Published: April 9 2016 12:05 am Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif Related News The Sharif-Modi era of Pakistan-India relations today faces the kind of dual-track challenge that it has not yet faced — Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit’s observation on the suspension of the bilateral process confirms this In the early days of this era Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s invitation to PM Nawaz Sharif to attend his swearing-in ceremony was supposed to be the grand gesture that helped sweep away decades of mistrust between the two nations Sharif’s decision to show up in New Delhi helped confirm the momentum that optimists in the region felt And then there was the Hurriyat parley and India’s decision to call off the foreign secretary talks That was almost two years ago Back then the basis for the cancellation of talks was iffy and questionable Modi and his team of which Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar was not yet a part were criticised for it in Delhi more than they were in Islamabad The reversal took a while but by the Ufa summit in Russia it was complete Ufa was a vital tactical win for Modi but a setback for Sharif And thus that meeting also dissipated into failure The cause was Pakistani indecision Sharif took a lot of heat for the statement’s directness on the issues that matter to India (read terrorism) and indirectness on issues that matter to Pakistan (read Kashmir) The net result was the cancellation of the national security advisor-level talks in August 2015 The net impact of the cancellation of the post-Ufa summit NSA talks was that both PMs were made to look weak and indecisive about what they wanted to do about bilateral relations Modi’s remarkable international success is already the stuff of legend but Sharif has also helped Pakistan make significant strides in engaging countries economically diplomatically and otherwise The sputtering aimlessness of Pakistan-India relations in the autumn of 2015 made both leaders look bad It was a low point in the Sharif-Modi era The potential of the relationship was given a significant boost by a surprise meeting of the NSAs in Bangkok in December 2015 followed quickly by a sideline meeting between the two PMs in Paris at the climate change summit and a historic Christmas Day visit to Lahore by Modi that at the time seemed like it would alter the momentum decisively in favour of those that seek normalised relations in South Asia Then Pathankot happened Opponents of a better brighter day for the region have learnt that where diplomatic disruptions sometimes fail to arrest the growing momentum of normalisation between Pakistan and India a terrorist attack never does But the reactions to Pathankot from both Indian officialdom and from the Pakistani authorities were smarter than the terrorists had bargained for The Indian government’s reserved and thoughtful reaction combined with the Pakistani PM’s call to his counterpart and offer of support followed up by the announcement of a Pakistani investigation were all remarkable The immediate reactions to Pathankot on both sides of the border were disruptive in a fresh new way They neutralised the terrorists’ ability to dictate the bilateral process Of course there happen to be opponents of the bilateral normalisation process who are not terrorists Many hardliners in both India and Pakistan would rather have their respective countries continue to relive the Groundhog Day of hostility and bitterness as they cling to 20th-century postures and ways of working The arrest of the alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Yadav in Pakistan in March is exactly the kind of 20th-century distraction to this process that both PMs need to find a way of addressing with a 21st-century mindset The kind of mindset that prompted Sharif’s attendance at the Modi inauguration and Modi’s visit on Sharif’s birthday to Lahore Because the arrest only confirms long-held and widely believed suspicions about India’s malign intentions with respect to Pakistan’s internal security it does not represent a new dynamic in the relationship It does however lower the moral ground upon which India rests its case when it advocates against Pakistan at global forums That too represents nothing new What Sharif and Modi need to realise is that the only new element in the relationship is their resilience thus far to ordinary and extraordinary disruptions to the normalisation process The shadow of Pathankot and the arrest of Kulbhushan Yadav is the first time that these disruptions exist simultaneously on both sides of the border If Modi and Sharif are serious about their brands as shapers of a new regional dynamic they have an unprecedented opportunity to show it Are they up to the challenge The
