child denied his favourite toy threatening to resign whenever he is not allowed to do exactly what he wants PTI Related News What has been the most important event of 2013 Many in north India and in other parts of the country will single out the stupendous showing of the Aam Aadmi Party in the Delhi state assembly elections The main point on its manifesto was to cleanse the political system and to eliminate the VIP culture that dominates every walk of life in the capital These goals obviously appealed to a large section of the electorate How else could virtual non-entities defeat established stalwarts Most of its supporters and perhaps an equally large number of those who were watching from the sidelines must have hoped that the AAP’s victory would have a salutary effect on Indian politics Surely the older generation politicians would now gauge the anger and disgust of the voters and change their ways in order to have a fighting chance of getting back their coveted positions in the Lok Sabha and state assemblies Of course in order for any of this to happen the AAP would have had to prove that it is a viable alternative able to govern for a long time Unfortunately the AAP and its leader Arvind Kejriwal have failed to pass this litmus test Kejriwal had declared more than once that he would resign if his government could not pass the Jan Lokpal bill sooner rather than later His self-imposed deadline was unrealistic since there seemed to be several legal hurdles that had to be crossed before the Delhi Assembly could even consider the bill His attempt to table the bill was defeated and Kejriwal submitted his resignation Where does he go from here In his resignation letter he recommended that the Delhi assembly be dissolved and fresh elections be held as soon as possible It is likely that the elections to the assembly will be held simultaneously with the Lok Sabha elections Will the AAP come back to power Perhaps the more important question is should the AAP come back to power Consider the second question first Consistency though not prudence demands that Kejriwal stick to his stand that he will resign again if the Jan Lokpal bill does not find its way into the statute books But even if the AAP wins an absolute majority in the state assembly there is virtually no chance that it will have a sizeable presence in the Lok Sabha — every recent poll gives it only a handful of seats outside Delhi So in the best of scenarios for the AAP the state assembly can “pass” the bill This will be at best an empty victory Surely the ruling coalition at the Centre will insist that such a bill needs prior approval of the lieutenant governor of Delhi And why not since implementation of the bill would require at least some expenditure from the Centre So the most likely outcome if the AAP comes back to power with an absolute majority is a constitutional logjam We will know soon enough about voter reactions But there are signs that the AAP has lost some support during its short stint in power The AAP has disillusioned many of its well wishers by demonstrating that it has no intention of respecting established legal processes Only anarchy can result when ministers behave like stormtroopers or when the head of government behaves like a petulant child who has been denied his favourite toy threatening to resign whenever he is not allowed to do exactly what he wants There are also questions about whether it has a coherent set of policies Consider for instance its economic policies These are laced with a liberal dose of populism — one aspect in which the AAP has mimicked other political parties Its manifesto promised to slash water and electricity charges in the capital One of its first steps in office was to waive water charges up to a stipulated amount for all households One of its last acts was to waive half the dues of all those who did not pay electricity charges between October 2012 and March 2013 It has sought to justify the latter by alleging that the distribution companies have inflated costs by manipulating its accounts But there is no concrete proof that the extent of manipulation is so large as to allow for a 50 per cent reduction in charges The AAP’s economics team does not seem to be aware of the grave long-term consequences of such subsidies First there is the serious allocative problem that such subsidies will result in overuse — a potential disaster in water-scarce Delhi Second someone has to pay in full for the cost incurred When users are not charged fully non-users have to pay a part of the cost perhaps indirectly because other welfare schemes are starved of funds This can often be inequitable if the latter are poorer This may well have happened in the case of water since a large number of poorer households in Delhi do not have access to piped water The AAP’s earlier manifesto also lists several schemes such as building new and better government schools and colleges increasing the number of hospital beds to the “international norm” of five per thousand patients improving sanitation and so on These are all laudable objectives but they do require large sums of money At no point was there any mention of how these were to be financed in particular whether new taxes would be imposed or existing ones increased Of course the AAP has only followed the practice of other political parties — list benefits but do not mention increase in taxes But then the USP of the AAP is to be different from the others The AAP has decided to spread its wings and establish a national presence Good intentions and honesty are desirable qualities in politicians particularly in a country where large numbers of this class lack both attributes Many voters rightly continue to believe that the AAP leaders possess both attributes Unfortunately these qualities must be combined with knowledge of some basic principles of governance as well as sound policies The AAP has scored very poorly on the latter Unless its leaders realise the importance of overcoming these shortcomings it will not be a viable option for voters certainly not at the national level For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by P Chidambaram | Published: June 12 2016 12:00 am RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan Related News It was good that Dr Raghuram Rajan Governor RBI has cleared some of the mist — and myth — surrounding the GDP numbers He gave two simple examples: *First example: ‘Exports minus imports’ is a contributory factor to GDP Exports declined in 2015-16 but imports declined even more So ‘exports minus imports’ in 2015-16 was greater than ‘exports minus imports’ in 2014-15 That means growth contributing to the GDP number (in current prices) *Second example: ‘Sales minus input costs’ is another contributory factor to GDP Sales of all manufacturing firms declined by 902 per cent in 2015-16 over the previous year but input costs declined more sharply (1842 per cent) thanks to the steep fall in oil and commodity prices Consequently ‘sales minus input costs’ was greater in 2015-16 than in 2014-15 Result is growth Output declines growth rises In both cases there was no increase in output Exporters exported less factories produced less firms had lower turnovers there was little or no additional employment and yet the sectoral ‘growth’ figures of the export sector and the manufacturing sector were positive leading to the illusion that export and manufacturing sectors had ‘grown’ at a brisk pace (Here I assume that productivity remained constant) Since the two sectors contributed significantly to the overall GDP number the GDP number got a boost The steep decline in oil and commodity prices is a new phenomenon and I think the CSO is not equipped to construct credible growth numbers in such a situation The disconnect between the numbers and the reality on the ground is very evident No amount of rationalisation can change the reality that is felt every day by the citizens — CPI inflation upwards of 5 per cent no new visible investment and no additional jobs on offer The average person is therefore stunned when he is told that the GDP had grown at 76 per cent We get a more realistic picture of the economy if we look at the output numbers Of the eight core industries coal refinery products fertilisers cement and electricity produced more in 2015-16 while crude oil natural gas and steel produced less than in the previous year The growth in the Index of Industrial Production of the eight core industries in 2015-16 was only 267 per cent Nevertheless the CSO reported high growth in the three sectors (that encompass the eight industries) namely mining and quarrying (744 per cent) manufacturing (929) and electricity and gas (657) Deficiencies in methodology Ever since the CSO moved to the new method of calculation there has been growing scepticism Analysts have pointed to several aspects of the new methodology that are suspect One of the main deficiencies was the choice of deflators Gross value additions (GVA) are measured in current prices but in order to make them comparable with measurements based on prices in the base year (2011-12) one must ‘deflate’ them with an appropriate deflator In the cases of ‘trade hotels transport communication etc’ and ‘financial real estate and professional services’ the GVA at current prices was 66 per cent and 74 per cent respectively The CSO applied negative deflators and reported a growth rate of 90 per cent and 103 per cent respectively When the 12-month average of CPI inflation in 2015-16 was 49 per cent it is difficult to believe that inflation in these two sectors was negative There has been no convincing explanation why negative deflators were chosen for these two service sectors The second deficiency was the use of the MCA21 database It has been admitted that the database requires to be stabilised We also know anecdotally that small and medium firms find it difficult to report the data about their firms periodically in the new format Besides the MCA21 database has been shared only with the CSO and no one has been able to verify the correctness of the data The GDP growth number is an approximation of the underlying economic activity Many economic decisions of the government and private investors are based on that number My analysis leads to the conclusion that the GDP number is not ‘as accurate as possible’ and certainly does not inspire confidence Some corrections are therefore in order Corrections needed The first correction must be to identify industries and sectors where quantitative output had declined in 2015-16 over 2014-15 (productivity assumed as constant) and assume that growth in such industry/sector was zero Examples would be exports crude oil natural gas and steel The second correction would be to re-visit the deflators that were used There is a huge divergence between WPI inflation and CPI inflation It makes no sense to use negative deflators for sectors (especially services) where oil and commodity prices have no role to play and where consumer prices have in fact increased The third correction is to reconstruct the GDP numbers using the old conventional data and release them alongside the numbers using the MCA21 database until the MCA21 database is believed to have been stabilised Finally there is no harm in publishing at least for a few years GDP numbers using the old method and the new method The CSO should complete the following table and restore credibility to the whole exercise: My guess is that the the number for each of the question mark-years would be between 5 and 55 per cent Website: pchidambaramin @Pchidambaram_IN For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related
