Addressing representatives from Nepal Bangladesh India Lekhi said that trafficking deserved the severest punishment and that there was a need firstly to identify the zones from where the crime emerges "I as a public representative am very concerned about trafficking wherever it happens in the country" she said She said that regions hit by natural calamities like drought flood hurricane and tsunami are the breeding grounds for those who indulge in the trafficking business as they find many potential victims there The MP also said that people in such regions should be made aware of their

fourth in a row to the poll-bound state This time he is visiting the stronghold of the BJP in north Gujarat Gandhi is expected to attack the ruling BJP both in the state as well as the Centre on various fronts like the Goods and Services Tax demonetisation unemployment Patidars farmer distress and price rise et al As the state gears up for the state assembly elections on 9 and 14 December political bigwigs have made Gujarat their second home and the Gandhi scion is no exception In the last two months not just Gandhi but Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP national chief Amit Shah have been to the state several times File image of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi PTI Gandhi arrived at the Ahmedabad airport on Saturday morning Then in a completely unplanned move he headed to the Akshardham Temple Gandhinagar After ’tilak’ and ‘darshan’ he set out for the Chiloda village adjoining the state capital Gandhi during his recent visits has made it a point to visit most of the pilgrim places and famous temples He will later visit Chala and Majra chokdi both in Gandhinagar district From there he will head to Prantij and Himmatnagar before going to Idar a tribal region In

have corner meetings similar to the ‘Chai Pe Charcha’ type His night halt will be in Ambaji town Before his Ambaji temple ‘darshan’ he will address a public meeting on the rights of tribals at Khedbrahmma Gandhi’s frequent visits have sprung quite a surprise in political circles and have been unprecedented Political pundits opine that as far as Congress leaders especially from the 10 Janpath in Delhi are concerned visits to the state have always been for a single day Until now they were mostly characterised by a single public meeting in some remote tribal region But this is probably for the first time that three-day visits have been planned and executed in Gujarat and that too in urban areas as well On Sunday Gandhi will have an interaction with the social media and IT

after his ‘darshan’ to Patan’s Vir Megh Maya Temple After that he will be visiting four villages in the area and once again have a small gathering and discussion (Chopal-style) with the nomadic tribe communities On the last day of his three-day sojourn Gandhi will have a ‘darshan’ in three temples First in Varana where he will also address a public meeting then in Shankheshwar temple and later in Becharaji where he will also address the ‘Rojgar Adhikar Sabha’ Gandhi will arrive in the Mehsana constituency of Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel where he will address women at ‘Mahila Adhikar Sabha’ He will end the visit on Monday with small corner meetings in Visnagar the place from where the Patidar reservation stir initiated He will then leave for Delhi Written by Abhijit V Banerjee |

aid agencyin India these days While Indian politicians are all too happy to score points against the erstwhile colonial masters and Indian leader writers hold forth about blood money and colonialism by other meansnewspapers back in the UK scream that aid money is not buying enough influence or allegiance The only real justification for foreign aid has to be that we care about desperately poor peopleirrespective of who they are or where they live It makes sense for the DFID to be in Indiabecause after all the bluster and brave talk from Indian elitesit is still true that 30 per cent of the worlds poorest live in India And this ought not to be a surprise Despite a couple of decades of fast growthdespite the Bollywood billionaires and space programmesIndia is still a very poor countrywith per capita incomes around 10 per cent of those in the United Kingdomafter adjusting for differences in prices and such things All the talk about India possibly becoming the second largest economy in the world in two decadesapart from perhaps being slightly over-optimistic (growth rates are slowing dramatically right now)obscures the fact that this is mainly because India will have 15 billion people by thenand something like half of them would have grown up half-fed and quarter-educated This does mean that there is a limit to how much the UK government can do to help out Even if they wanted tothey simply dont have the money We in India will ultimately have to do most of the work of solving our own problems But that does not mean that help right now is not needed I have long been an advocate of taxing the rich more (wealth taxesfor example)but in the short rungiven how footloose the smart money tends to be and all the other challenges of tax collectionit is hard to imagine India raising more than a few per cent of GDP by raising taxes That is a lot of moneybut there are lots of problems to solve education is a mess and so is healthcarenot to speak of infrastructure Ortake nutrition 50 per cent of children in India show signs of serious malnutritionthats several hundred million children And every little bit helps What logic would justify walking away from thembecause the pride of a few elite Indians is affronted by what they view as British charity Of coursethe argument does not end here Perhaps even with the best of intentionsaid is doomed to be ineffective because it is foreignas a number of scholars (and many leader writers) have suggested My sense is that the evidence on thislike the evidence of most propositions in economics at this level of generalityis too ambiguous to bear the weight that is given to it many social programmes faileven in the developed world and Im not sure that aid-funded social programmes fail more than the rest (though it is always easy to find instances of aid funded and non-aid funded disasters) More importantlythe DFIDat least in Indiahas been very careful to avoid the standard pitfalls of donor-funded programmes They have focused on specific problems mainly nutritionsanitation and child and maternal health without offering a recipe for all of poverty They have gone where the poor are in BiharMadhya Pradesh and Orissa Andperhaps most importantlythey have stayed away from offering readymade solutions Their work has always emphasised that we do not know why these problems are the way they are and that research will have to play a central role in coming up with effective solutions This last point highlights what I see as the most important contribution foreign aid can make to India The culture in most government departments in India is dominated by a combination of expediency and received wisdom (thissadlymight be one of colonialisms most lasting contributions) Departments are mostly run by non-specialists who expect to hold the job for a year or two andthereforedont necessarily have the timeinclination or capacity to learn what is needed to really tackle hard problems And even when they want to get it rightthe nature of politics is such that those in government never want to emphasise the possibility of failure or the need to scale down ambitions This is where donors have the potentialand where the UK aid agency has shown a particular commitment Precisely because it is not the governmentthe DFID can focus on a single problem or twotake the long viewemphasise trial-and-errorget to know the subject area well and think carefully Through all thatit can get us to solutions that the government system may not be able to get to and more generallyinspirethrough acculturation and imitationa model of governing that will enable India to ultimately solve its own problems It is not the money that the UK government gives us that is its biggest gift but the ability of its aid agency to be patientserious and openand it would be a tragedy if we throw it away in a fit of unthinking nationalism The writer is Ford Foundation International Professor of Economics at
