The long interaction of the Indian and Pakistani foreign secretaries in New Delhi on April 26 would have covered a lot of ground on the current state of bilateral relations However the fact that the two diplomats did not come together before the media and instead gave aggressive individual statements shows that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s December Pakistan initiative is in deep trouble Interestingly the Pakistani version of the conversation is in line with the points that unofficial Pakistani interlocutors are making to their Indian counterparts There is particular focus on the resumption of a full-range India-Pakistan dialogue especially to address outstanding issues including J&K This is in keeping with Pakistan’s traditional position on the bilateral engagement Clearly discernible in Pakistan is the new found confidence to dismiss terrorism — India’s priority — as an alibi for avoiding a full-range dialogue It is here that under the army’s orchestration Pakistan is moving strongly to seek to establish a moral equivalence on terrorism because of the ongoing Kulbhushan Jadhav affair Its approach is to present terrorism as a mutual concern to be addressed by both countries — if Pakistan must confront non-state actors operating from its territory India must abandon its state terrorism in Balochistan Thus Pakistan may seemingly cooperate on the Pathankot attack but will continue with the Jadhav concoction It is in this context that we must evaluate the NIA’s visit to Pakistan Much as the Modi government may be tempted to use the NIA’s visit if it takes place as evidence of the success of its present policy it has to remain conscious of Pakistan’s dual approach Pakistan’s Jadhav adventure marks a serious escalation The naming of NSA Ajit Doval as Jadhav’s direct handler and attributing this disclosure to Jadhav is part of the Pakistani plan There is little doubt that India would be quietly emphasising to Pakistan the inherent dangers in and implications of opening such a front It is improbable that the generals would appreciate the validity of the Indian view and return Jadhav early and safely though they may temper the hoopla The virtual denial of consular access to Jadhav is an indicator of the Pakistani approach The fact is that the generals have ensured that the Modi foray runs into sand Besides PM Nawaz Sharif is now in the midst of a political crisis and army chief General Raheel Sharif has gained a larger-than-life image because of his stand on domestic terrorism and corruption The army and the Sharif brothers have not been on the same page on action against Punjab-based Pakistan-oriented extremist religious groups following the Easter Sunday Lahore terrorist attack The army has not accepted the restraint the Sharifs wanted it to exercise in taking on these terrorist elements Far more significant though is the growing chasm on corruption At a time Nawaz Sharif is wounded by the Panama revelations reports of Raheel Sharif dismissing 12 senior army officers including a three-star general have surfaced Raheel Sharif has also stressed that “across-the-board accountability is necessary for the solidarity integrity and prosperity of Pakistan” The upshot is that the army will be in complete control of the country’s India policy with no investment in the Modi-initiated December 2015 process The premise of the Modi initiative was the belief that Nawaz Sharif and the army were aligned in wanting an improvement in India-Pakistan relations This was based on weak evidence: The appointment of a “political fauji” Nasser Janjua as NSA and his initial interaction with Doval a process made possible by unilateral Indian concessions It is time India coldly reviewed all dimensions of the NSA channel especially its foundational assumptions This is all the more needed as it is amply clear now that the generals were unimpressed by Modi’s Lahore visit The foreign secretaries’ Delhi interaction shows that there is no early prospect of their meeting to work out the modalities of the comprehensive bilateral dialogue The Pathankot attack and the Jadhav provocation will now be the bilateral preoccupation For India it is necessary to ensure that Pakistan shows real intent on bringing the actual conspirators of the Pathankot attack to book and satisfactorily resolves the Jadhav matter before the foreign secretaries meet on the comprehensive bilateral dialogue Should that not be so it will mean another Indian concession and the generals will see it as one more sign of Modi’s weakness notwithstanding the strong April 26 statement Can India afford to convey such a signal again The writer is a former diplomat For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More

money planning an international vacation many are also embarking on domestic travel for shorter trips which are considerably more affordable City-based Akshay Ingle celebrates Diwali with his parents

me and my friends decided to go this Diwali” said Ingle Commenting on the findings from the survey Sharat Dhall President Yatracom says “With Durga Puja Navratri Dussehra and Diwali on the horizon we have observed an increase in leisure travel reflected by improvement in passenger loads on flights to beach and hill destinations With respect to international travel the stability of the rupee has provided an impetus for travellers to plan trips abroad” As many as 306 per cent of total respondents shared that they were looking to travel internationally driven by the stable rupee Another

chief Sharad Pawar Getty Images Addressing a press meet in Mumbai Pawar said a delegation of various Muslim outfits met him recently and aired their concern over the youths from the community being "terrorised" on mere suspicion of having links with Islamic State and other banned organisations "A 28-member delegation representing various Muslim organisations met me recently and complained that the ATS is terrorising Muslim youths in the name of IS and other banned organisations This delegation strongly condemned IS and said the youths of their community would never support their activities" Pawar said He claimed that there have been several instances especially in Marathwada region where youths had been picked up by the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) on grounds of suspicion and detained "illegally" "According to the law an arrested person has to be presented before a magistrate within 24 hours But there have been cases where even after 120 hours the detained persons are kept in some isolated location and not let out The government needs to take serious cognizance of this" the former Maharashtra chief minister said The arrested should be immediately produced before a magistrate there should be an immediate chargesheet and they should be tried in a fast track court he said "A criminal has no caste or creed A particular community should not be labelled (as criminal)" he said

Scheduled Castes and Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act were used by rivals groups from the upper class to settle scores There was no misuse from the Dalit community Recently the parliament has amended the Act My only submission is that its misuse be avoided" Pawar was quoted as saying by The Business Standard The NCP chief also warned the the government agencies from misusing the law According to The Times of India referring to the Kopardi rape-murder case Pawar said "Girls and women are subjected to abusesdemand for scrapping of the act is a social reaction which needs to be considered seriously" BJP wants to back Emergency Commenting upon the government’s proposed internal security law Pawar said these (the BJP) are the same people who took a moral high ground against the Emergency imposed in 1975 by the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi the India Today reported "The government has changed and so the system of making law it seems The thumb rule has been that the CM and his Council of Ministers decide to make a particular law and ask his Secretary to frame it Here it is reverse" he said referring to Additional Chief Secretary (Home) KP Bakshi’s contention that the proposed law had been made at the secretarial level and there were no discussions at the ministerial level Backing Maratha reservation The Business Standard reported that Pawar said his party is

backward classes With inputs from PTI New Delhi: There are apprehensions that disqualifying candidates from contesting polls from the day charges are framed against them in a court — as observed by the Supreme Court — may be misused by a party in power if put into effect a parliamentary panel has said Representational image PTI The parliamentary standing committee on law and personnel while examining electoral reforms has asked political parties to send their feedback on the apex court’s observation "It has been apprehended that the process of framing of charges and thereafter being automatically disqualified are likely to be misused particularly by the party in power Please comment" it said in a mail sent to the parties Currently a candidate is disqualified from contesting for a certain period if he or she is convicted by a court The present position is also based on a July 2013 Supreme Court judgment Politicians such as Lalu Prasad are barred from standing for an election on the basis of the apex court order Earlier this month the apex court referred to a five-judge constitution bench a case on whether politicians charged with offences attracting five or more years of jail term should be barred from contesting polls The court was hearing a plea which sought to declare the provisions of the Representation of the People Act which bars convicted politician from contesting elections for six years as ultra vires to the Constitution Last month the court had pulled up the Election Commission for not taking a clear stand on a plea seeking the barring of convicted politicians for life It had said the EC could not remain silent on the matter and wondered if it was "constrained" to give its views on the matter Madrid: Real Madrid left-back Marcelo on Tuesday admitted defrauding the Spanish tax authorities of nearly half a million euros according to a judicial source Brazilian international Marcelo admitted to tax fraud in court in Alcobendas on the outskirts of Madrid after being accused of using front companies to hide 490917 ($579348) he earned from image rights in the 2013 financial year a sum which he will now pay back File image of Real Madrid’s Marcelo AP The Madrid vice-captain’s admission of guilt is a first step in a deal he is trying to cut with Spanish prosecutors and officials Once drafted the prospective agreement will be presented to a judge It will probably include a four-month suspended prison sentence and an additional fine equivalent to 40 percent of the sum he hid from the tax man According to reports Marcelo has used companies in Uruguay and the UK since 2006 to render his income from image rights "fiscally opaque" Marcelo’s trial is part of the Spanish tax authorities’ offensive on football which has also caught the game’s two biggest stars In 2016 Lionel Messi was fined 21 million and handed a 21-month prison sentence later commuted to another fine after he and his father were found guilty on three

pitch on offer with pace spearhead James Anderson on Thursday saying the visitors will have to bowl and bat out of their skins to dig themselves out of trouble "I’m not sure whether it (pitch) will stay together as well as Rajkot There are already signs of the pitch keeping low There will be more variable bounce we have seen a few spun so we are in tough position We need to have a good day with the ball and an extremely good out with the bat (tomorrow)" Anderson said after India had piled up 317 for 4 courtesy Virat Kohli’s 151 and Cheteshwar Pujara’s 119 James Anderson feels the Vizag pitch will not hold as well as Rajkot AFP "The pitch is quite abrasive The outfield is lush there are not many areas to get the ball to reverse" he said Kohli and Pujara had put on a 226 runs for the third wicket to bring India out of the trouble after the hosts were reduced to 22 for 2 inside five overs "I thought the wicket was tough to bowl on The outfield was heavy and there will be some sore legs tomorrow The two guys (Kohli and Pujara) went about their business and showed they are world class players They made it very difficult to bowl at them" Anderson said "We thought the way the new ball played in the morning it was the easiest time to bat as the ball didn’t swing that much" Anderson (3/44) was the pick of the lot for English bowlers and gave crucial breakthroughs in the form of Pujara and later dismissed Ajinkya Rahane with the second new ball The English pacer hoped that they can utilise the early morning conditions tomorrow and bundle out India early "We didn’t get much out of the pitch this morning and we went quickly to short balls against the openers But it swung more in the evening The conditions were different with the floodlights on and sun going down Hopefully we can pick up more wickets in the morning with the new ball" Anderson said Anderson on Thursdaymade a comeback after recovering from a shoulder injury that had kept him out since August "It was great to be back I have spent the last two months working really hard to get back into the side It’s been frustrating at times but it’s been worth it Getting back out there with the lads was a great feeling in itself but to get a few wickets on the board made it even better" he said "I have missed it I have missed playing and taking wickets That sort of feeling you can’t get in any other walk of life To get some wickets meant a lot" Asked whether his shoulder has fully recovered Anderson said in a lighter vein: "To be honest I haven’t thought about the shoulder it’s the rest of my body that’s in pieces right now It’s general recovery Things I have been doing I will keep doing them so it doesn’t happen again" The player auction for the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will be
