Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi shared a dais and even a gigantic garland that was put around them many quipped that this was nothing more than circus Park Circus maidan the traditional ground where circus teams used to pitch their tent in winter is also the ground where this ‘historic’ moment unfolded Whether this was ‘historic’ moment or a ‘circus’ time will tell One thing is clear What is shaping up as the 2016 Battle for Bengal will have far-reaching consequences with regards to the parliamentary elections of 2019 The results of the West Bengal Assembly election will decide the fate of the CPM-Congress alliance PTI The Congress badly needs a veneer of ideology and direction after its pathetic performance in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls While for long the Congress has run with the hare and hunted with hounds by being a right-winger to some of its constituents and a left-winger to others and maintained a so-called centrist big capital-friendly social-liberal consensus much of the centre-right space in the Hindi states and in the big cities of the Indian Union has been captured by the BJP The Congress thus has to rebrand itself differently even if cynically and that is to appear more pro-people than it actually is This is where the closeness with the CPM is immensely helpful where just by association it can create an impression of a certain kind without making any serious changes in its political programme If the CPM-Congress alliance is successful in Bengal this alliance will probably go on till the 2019 Lok Sabha elections And in this kind of politics the ends do justify the means The voices that are sarcastic at the spectacle of the CPM and Congress becoming political allies in a state like West Bengal where every neighbourhood and village is littered with martyrs memorials erected to remember the murder of the thousands of Congress activists killed by the CPM and vice-versa will find less currency if this alliance is able to dislodge the Trinamool from power in West Bengal in these Assembly elections These elections of Bengal have the potential to decide what kind of forces will form the main group that will challenge BJP at the centre in 2019 If the CPM-Congress alliance wins this will no doubt form the core of a India-wide secularist with a ‘human face’ kind of alliance Congress and its electoral clout and the CPM with its ideological and networking clout will be the main pillars of this alliance Once this is successful in Bengal certain other forces from the Janata camp and a section of federal parties will join this alliance This will present a national alternative to the policies of the BJP At least they will claim to be very different This will be a UPA-I like situation where Congress will primarily call the shots some policy tweaking will happen to due to CPM presence and other allies will be kept in line by carrots of central grants and sticks of CBI However if the Trinamool wins it will get busy in trying to bring pro-state rights parties together It already made such an initiative during the 2014 Lok Sabha elections in its call for a federal front but in the midst of a Modi wave in the Hindi belt it was essentially a non-starter However with the string of successes of pro-federalism parties like Janata Dal (United) Aam Aadmi Party and older parties like the Biju Janata Dal with which the Trinamool has taken coordinated positions in the past this grouping will surely want to become the pole which will take on the BJP at the centre Such a situation is no good news for the Congress which might have to play second fiddle to a pro-federalism alliance that will want to devolve power to the states and hence hitting the traditional source of the legitimacy of the Congress that is power at the centre This will also make the Left marginal The Congress and the CPM in such a case might have to offer some kind of support to the federal alliance given their anti-BJP posturing A federal front government at the centre has the potentially to fundamentally shake up how Delhi runs the Indian Union and might even see power moving to the states stopping the bullying and black-mailing role that big ‘national’ parties typically play The outcome of the Battle for Bengal will decide the shape of things to come in 2019 It looks like a state Assembly battle but its consequences are sure to be far-reaching The BJP surely will be part of the politicking for they will try to strengthen whoever who has a lesser chance or ability defeat them As it stood in 2014 the expansion of the BJP was arrested not in Congress bastions but in states where pro-federalism parties were in power Historically big business has been staunchly opposed to the possibility of any government where either the Congress or the BJP is not the major driver Given the unprecedented corporate money muscle that was at display during the 2014 Lok Sabha elections one can imagine which way these invisible powers have lined up in the 2016 Battle for Bengal By May 19 we will know whether its a green light for the formation of a federalist alliance or a Congress-CPM led alliance for leading the charge in 2019 Written

NewsNew Delhi | Published: August 11 2014 12:06 am The RBI appears to be quite confident about the evolving growth trajectory Related News By Rupa Rege Nitsure A transparent monetary policy has a clearly defined goal like price stability In the case of India the RBI came out with a new monetary policy framework in January 2014 anchoring for an inflation (CPI-based) target of 40 per cent with a band of plus/ minus 20 per cent It has also proposed to bring the targeted CPI (consumer price index) inflation down to 80 per cent by January 2015 and 60 per cent by January 2016 before bringing it down to 40 per cent in three years The adoption of such a rule-based framework has made the monetary policy exercise highly transparent for India In fact in every bi-monthly policy statement the RBI tries to show the degree of consistency between the actual inflation trajectory and its anticipated path The credibility of policy is attained when the central bank’s actions are consistent with reaching its monetary policy goal The easing of retail inflation for two consecutive months the recent fall in global crude prices the benign outlook on global non-oil commodity prices and the government’s firm commitment to fiscal consolidation had given rise to the wide-ranging expectation of an easing cycle Some had wrongly interpreted the RBI’s stance in the June policy as “dovish” because it had said that further policy tightening will not be warranted if the economy stays on a disinflationary course witnessed during May-June 2014 However that was a conditional statement and in June as well as in August the RBI has clearly warned of several upside risks to inflation on account of adjustments in administered prices deficient monsoon and its impact on food production possibly higher oil prices stemming from geopolitical concerns and exchange rate movement and growth in the aggregate demand In the latest policy review the central bank appears to be more concerned about achieving the 60 per cent inflation target by January 2016 than achieving the 80 per cent target by January 2015 And therefore it has suggested a heightened state of policy preparedness to contain inflationary risks According to the RBI a lot depends on the government’s actions on food management and timely completion of projects that would set the pace for the supply-side response Given these uncertainties the RBI remains worried about the medium-term sustainability of the disinflation process and hence it has chosen to keep the policy rates as well as the CRR (cash reserve ratio) unchanged on August 5 2014 While “pessimistic” on the inflation front the RBI appears to be quite confident about the evolving growth trajectory This confidence stems from the improved performance of exporting industries ongoing revival of investments unlocking of stalled projects government’s commitment to fiscal consolidation and its favourable impact on the private sector’s investment expenditures stabilisation of global commodity prices etc According to the RBI in the absence of any strongly negative surprise from the exogenous factors an economic growth of 55 per cent can be sustained for India during 2014-15 The other major move in the latest policy review is a cut in the SLR (statutory liquidity ratio) by 50 basis points (bps from 225 to 220 per cent of net demand and time liabilities or NDTL) even if there is no significant pick-up in credit demand and the banking industry continues to hold excess SLR securities In our opinion this is not just a move to improve liquidity Rather it has to be viewed as a long-term reform measure that would improve the functioning of debt markets As said by the RBI’s Committee on Comprehensive Financial Services for Small Businesses and Low Income Households headed by Nachiket Mor the SLR as a prudential tool has outlived its utility for both banks and non-bank financial companies (NBFCs) given the much-enhanced emphasis on capital buffers under the new risk-management framework A high level of SLR in India compared to other emerging markets has distorted not just the interest rate structure but also its usefulness as a signalling mechanism Moreover the gradual reduction in the SLR undertaken by the RBI also reflects its confidence in the government’s ability to improve its finances in line with its revealed commitment This is a strongly positive signal to bond market participants Of course given the large supply of government papers in the current month the said measure may increase volatility in bonds in the short term But the reform orientation of this measure combined with appropriate liquidity management by the RBI through term repos of various maturities should support the bond market sentiment in the medium term Moreover this reduction in SLR would increase the resources with banks to extend credit to the private corporate sector by Rs 40000 crore once the credit demand picks up The RBI also reduced the ceiling for banks’ total holdings of SLR securities in the held-to-maturity (HTM) category to 240 per cent of NDTL from 245 per cent of NDTL with effect from August 9 2014 This step is taken to increase banks’ participation in financial markets This measure may give an opportunity to banks to reduce their HTM holdings as per the market conditions going ahead It also means that banks have reduced facility to park securities in the HTM bucket which in turn would force them to value securities at a regular interval and take a hit in the form of mark-to-market valuation if there is any adverse movement of the security prices This would promote more disciplined functioning of the banks’ treasury divisions Thus while the primary focus of the policy is on “price stability” it has touched some critical areas to improve the functioning of the financial markets and support the liquidity conditions for banks Given the RBI’s explicitly expressed concern over the inflation outlook from a medium-term perspective we do not see much scope for the commencement of the easing cycle during the financial year 2014-15 The writer is chief economist and general
