autonomous bodies should preferably bear the additional financial burden arising due to revision of pay scale In case the autonomous body is unable to do it it should approach the financial advisor or the ministry concerned (I&B in this case) who can consider the proposal and may recommend the MoF to consider bearing upto 70 per cent of the additional burden The remaining 30 per cent should be

Mohan | Published: January 26 2016 12:00 am President of France Francois Hollande with Prime Minister Narendra Modi inChandigarh on Sunday January 24 2016 (Express Photo) Related News The participation of French troops in the Republic Day parade on Tuesday — the first ever by a foreign contingent on Rajpath since Independence — is doubly significant It marks the end of India’s prolonged military isolationism and unveils the emergence of France as India’s most trusted international partner Although India’s joint military exercises and memorandums of understanding on defence cooperation multiplied since the early 1990s New Delhi seemed incapable of imagining the role of India’s armed forces beyond territorial defence The ghosts of military isolationism seemed difficult to dislodge from the ministry of defence Since he took charge in May 2014 Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been bearing down on South Block to recognise the potential of military partnerships in modernising India’s defence-industrial base and enhancing India’s strategic weight in the international system The marching of the French contingent down Rajpath suggests the effort has begun to pay off Back in 2008 France had indeed invited India to send its troops to join the 2008 Bastille Day parade That decision was an acknowledgement of India’s historic contribution to securing western Europe in World War I and contributing to the Allied victory in World War II It was also a recognition of India’s new military possibilities on the global stage The UPA government’s bold decisions in 2005 when it unveiled military and nuclear cooperation with America and new strategic partnerships with China and Japan seemed to justify Paris betting on Delhi’s new international potential But in its second incarnation (2009-14) the UPA government’s military diplomacy went cold again as then Defence Minister AK Antony threw a wet blanket around it Resuscitating India’s defence diplomacy and global security engagement has been at the centre of the Modi government’s foreign policy That a French president is gracing the Republic Day celebrations for a record fifth time underlines the repeated efforts over the last many decades to transform the ties between Delhi and Paris The value that each country had put on developing independent foreign policies drew Delhi and Paris together despite being on opposite sides of the Cold War divide France became an early and valuable partner for India in building its nuclear and space programmes Its leaders — Francois Mitterrand in the 1980s Jacques Chirac in the 1990s and Nicolas Sarkozy in the 2000s — made repeated efforts to construct a special political-strategic relationship with India The French support to resolving the tangle with the US over fuel supplies for the Tarapur nuclear power station in the 1980s limiting international sanctions against India in the wake of Pokhran 2 and conceiving a political carve-out for India from the global nuclear rules stand out as examples of exceptional French interest in India Continuing that tradition President Francois Hollande is eager to consolidate the strategic partnership with India and implement the many key agreements that remain in limbo Despite the longstanding interest in the French connection Delhi never really responded in full measure to initiatives from Paris Thanks to bureaucratic pettifogging in Delhi no major French overture could be consummated It required the direct intervention of Modi during his visit to France last April to move forward the discussions on the acquisition of the French fighter aircraft Rafale That the negotiations couldn’t be concluded by the time Hollande landed nine months later in Chandigarh on Sunday shows how difficult the task is Modi however appears determined to deepen the French partnership The PM who has spent the last 20 months in office reviving India’s engagement with all the great powers sees a special role for Paris in Delhi’s global calculus for three important reasons One India’s relations with America Britain and China will always retain different degrees of difficulty given their dalliance with the Pakistan army Russia which unambiguously backed India against China and Pakistan in the Cold War has drawn closer to the former and is wooing the latter France in contrast has made a clear choice in favour of India As China rises Russia asserts Britain retrenches Europe dithers and America is torn by self-doubt France becomes critical for India in promoting a measure of balance on the Eurasian landmass As the only credible military power with undiminished political will and a historic presence in the Indo-Pacific France can be a privileged partner for India in strengthening peace and security in the maritime domain Third while India’s quest for multi-polarity has often drawn it closer to China and Russia Delhi is painfully aware of the dangers of jumping from the frying pan into the fire Exchanging American global primacy for Chinese domination makes little sense for Delhi As a leading Western power with shared political values France is a more credible partner for India in constructing a more equitable world order through a new concert of major powers Modi gets the big idea on France His problem is in getting Delhi to translate it into action The writer is a

NewsWritten by Nandini Rathi | New Delhi | Updated: April 21 2017 7:53 pm Baahubali 2: Sathyaraj issued an apology for his remarks after Kannada groups threatened to stop the release of the SS Rajamouli film in the state Top News That a lot of expectations and money are riding on S S Rajamouli’s 200 crore sequel Baahubali the Conclusion due for release on April 28 is well known It was therefore quite convenient for the pro-Kannada groups like Karnataka Rakshana Vedike to seek some gloating satisfaction by threatening to prevent the Karnataka release of Baahubali the Conclusion in order to force an apology out of Tamil actor Sathyaraj for his nine-year-old controversial remarks on the Cauvery issue It is at the stage of theatrical distribution that a movie’s whole fate and business depends Speaking to a news channel director SS Rajamouli said that pro-Kannadiga groups targeting Baahubali 2 because of Sathyaraj was “not right” “[We] learned that whatever comments Mr Sathyaraj made it was nine years back And after that about 30 films of his were released in Karnataka Baahubali 1 released No one had problems with that And suddenly raking up the issue at this point in time … ” said Rajamouli Of course only Sathyaraj won’t be affected by this threat But that is exactly the leverage for blackmail — when the stake against the risk is just too great and involves a whole crew of unrelated people it is easy to browbeat somebody into senseless demands to selfish parochial endsThe KRV has done this before in 2008 to get an “apology” from superstar Rajnikanth for his statements on the Hogenakkal project dispute prior to the release of his movie Kuselan In the country that is wild about movies blockbuster movies like Baahubali make for cultural phenomena generating a lot of buzz influence and capital Over and over these days this has been making movies and its makers easy targets for arm-twisting by fringe groups that know only too well that they possess the brazen muscle power of the mob to disrupt any hopes of soft power They have the willing “activists” to attack where movies are vulnerable — at the sore point of revenue This is exactly what also transpired in the case of Karan Johar’s dark apology video to Maharashtra Navnirman Sena pleading them to spare his Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and in Shah Rukh Khan’s reassurance meeting with Raj Thackeray to ensure a smooth landing for Raees It seems that as long as the law and order would not come to the active rescue of the filmmakers any organisation with brawn and some political clout
