Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsUpdated: April 30 2014 11:57 pm I was shocked to discover that the Gujarat model was about courage and compassion and not ‘cultural polarisation’ Related News From an ex-Left MLA now with the BJP who says Modi could lead us to the ‘kingdom of god’ As a citizen of India Frazer Mascarenhas had the freedom to get on top of the tallest building in Mumbai and shout whatever he wanted But the moment he became a Catholic priest he surrendered part of that freedom The Catholic church doesn’t allow politicking by clergy He also surrendered that freedom when he became a university teacher Section 414 of the Maharashtra Universities Act prohibits teachers from using their posts for political purposes When he became principal of St Xavier’s College Mumbai his freedom was further curbed The collective responsibility of representing the Christian community the Catholic church and the teacher community rested upon his shoulders Mascarenhas failed on all counts I do not fully agree with the church diktat to its clergy to keep off politics since Christians everywhere say in the lord’s prayer every day “Thy kingdom come” That kingdom can come only when there is justice and fairness It can be accomplished only through good governance It can never be accomplished when there is looting and corruption Therefore a good Christian even a Catholic priest is duty bound to ensure that good governance is in place which will ensure justice Let me call this “Christian politics” Therefore I would not have found Mascarenhas wanting at all in his Christian calling if he had exhorted his students to elect representatives who would ensure good governance The president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India Cardinal Cleemis issued a pastoral letter to be read out in all the Catholic churches in India on April 6: “Let us pray that those who work hard to uphold values and principles in public life those who uphold the great democratic and secular traditions of this country and those who can ensure peace and prosperity to all its citizens get elected” He hit the nail on the head Not just Christians but any sensible citizen could have used this to evaluate candidates at the ballot box But Mascarenhas failed to understand Cardinal Cleemis He claims that he is not taking sides that he is only provoking intelligent debate But his opening remarks give him away: Gujarat’s “terrible experience in the last 10 years” Though he doesn’t name any political party his message is clear: Narendra Modi is dangerous vote for the Congress I don’t know the provocation for him to write so especially from his official email address Mascarenhas seems to have got both the message of Christian politics as well as the basic facts about Gujarat wrong First about the basic message of Christ The message of Christ is in his life: courage and compassion If this is Christ and Christianity haven’t you gone completely wrong in evaluating Modi Hasn’t he shown remarkable courage in his administration to ensure that there was no corruption for the past 10 years Has he not shown the kind of compassion to the downtrodden that is almost biblical when he ensured that their livelihood sustenance grew at a phenomenal rate How do I know that these claims are true I have travelled extensively in Gujarat during the past five years and I have evaluated for myself what is happening there I had no reason to be soft on Modi or the BJP I was shocked to discover that the Gujarat model was about courage and compassion and not “cultural polarisation” If all households get quality electricity who is the beneficiary If agriculture which is the lifeline of the majority of Indians grows at 98 per cent a year for the past 10 years who is the beneficiary If industry grows at a phenomenal rate who gets employed If there has not been one communal riot during the past 12 years who has been the beneficiary If Gujarat has the best road network in the country is not the ordinary citizen the beneficiary Father Mascarenhas please go and see the courage with which Modi has taken on communal forces during the past 12 years Did you see Pravin Togadia or any Bajrang Dal functionary calling the shots in Gujarat during the past 10 years The proof of the pudding is in the eating You as a Christian preacher should believe only in the real You must see the writing on the ground You must throw a stone only when you are convinced that a sin has been committed Christianity is all about forgiveness The Supreme Court and every court of the land is convinced that Modi is not a sinner Still Mascarenhas who hears confessions and the main plank of whose religion is forgiveness irresponsibly slams Modi on the eve of elections calling Gujarat a “terrible experience” Let me tell you the experience of a Catholic bishop who went to see Modi Since he didn’t know Modi he took a BJP functionary along with him Modi’s first comment was: “Bishop you don’t need anybody’s recommendation to see me In the future just call me directly Now what can I do for you” The bishop said: “Here are requests for three schools; if you could kindly consider one of them I will be very grateful” In half a minute Modi approved not one but all three schools I have never seen Christians in Gujarat complaining They are happy in Gujarat They never felt more secure They don’t even want to go back to Kerala I am a practising Catholic I joined the BJP three years back as I wanted Modi to be prime minister Why He will bring food to every table send every child to school and create

It was here that Modi made his first public promise the implementation of a four decade-old demand — One Rank One Pension (OROP) Date: September 5 2015 Venue: Conference Hall of Defence Ministry in South Block Occasion: The announcement of the implementation of OROP Flanked by the three service chiefs Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar announced the resolution of an issue that had been agitating Indian Armed Forces personnel both serving and retired for over 40 years Major-General Satbir Singh (left) and Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar (right) IBNLive This was a big day for veterans — from the rank of jawan to the service chiefs It was an equally big day for the Modi government and the BJP as they prepared to deliver their one big promise — a complex issue that has dogged the Modi government since assuming office and something that successive governments for the past 40 years including the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government havefailed to deliver on The man who made this promise and reiterated his resolve to fulfil it in his Independence Day speech from Red Fort as also the prime mover for hastening the pace of decision-making in the government Modi chose to stay in the background letting his hand-picked defence minister write his name in history Modi perhaps wanted to send out a message that his government worked as a team and was not a one-man show as his political rivals and critics allege The OROP as Parrikar stated will be implemented from 1 July 2014 — a day after the Modi government presented its first Budget There are many who are questioning the timing of this announcement due in no small part to the fact that the schedulefor the Bihar Assembly elections is to be announced on Monday The OROP in fact has no direct bearing on the Bihar unlike Haryana Punjab Uttrakhand Himachal Pradesh and other such states that contribute a much larger percentage of soldiers in the country’s armed forces However if a decision and announcement on OROP had been delayed for few more days the model code of conduct — which will come into effect with the announcement of polls for the Bihar Assembly — would have prevented the Centre from making the announcement until the conclusion of these polls sometime in November With ex-officers and jawans sitting on dharna at Jantar Mantar for the past 83 days these are not the optics that the BJP would have wanted to take into an election as critical as Bihar The BJP will now have all its guns blazing — praising Modi for jo kaha woh kiya (did what he promised) and taking on the party’s political rivals This will be a major talking point for the BJP from Saturdayonwards particularly as campaigning for the Bihar polls hots up Parrikar’s statement carefully and cleverly laid the pitch to show not just how seriously the Modi government worked to make the OROP a reality after four decades but also how cavalier the UPA government had treated the matter "In February 2014 the then government stated that OROP would be implemented in 2014-15 but did not specify what OROP would be how it would be implemented or how much it would cost An estimated Rs 500 crore provided for OROP in the budget presented in February 2014 by the then government was not based on any thorough analysis It is pertinent to mention that the then Minister of State for Defence in 2009 had in reply to a question informed Parliament that there are administrative technical and financial difficulties in implementing OROP It is for these reasons that the present government took some time to fulfill its promise Prime Minister Modi has on various occasions reiterated the government’s commitment to implement OROP for ex-servicemen under military pension As stated above the previous government had estimated that OROP would be implemented with a budget provision of a mere Rs 500 crore The reality however is that to implement OROP the estimated cost to the exchequer would be Rs 8000 to 10000 crore at present and will increase further in future"Parrikar said The purpose of revealing these figures is evident Even though the veterans might not be fully satisfied with the deal dealt today it leaves the Congress with legs to stand on in the issue anymore Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi had mocked Modi when the prime minister announced a Rs 165 lakh-crore package for Bihar suggesting that he had announced goodies for the poll-bound state at the cost of veterans It is now the BJP’s turn to open fire at the Congress The BJP was on the back foot after its mishandling of the Land Acquisition bill and the continuing logjam over the Goods and Services Tax (GST) bill OROP gives the party a chance to score some points in the popular perception war as also to do something worthwhile for those who risked their lives to let the nation work and sleep in peace said: “The area was disturbed since last night.
