I faced racial abuse in India many times - Lal Thanhawla


Aizawl, 26 April 2017: Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla on Tuesday said he had faced racial abuse in India several times. “Racial abuse is the worst thing in this country. I have faced it myself a lot of times,” he said in an interview to IANS. “These are foolish people who do not know their own country.”

The 74-year-old recalled an incident from “20-25 years ago” when he said he was told he does not “look like an Indian”. “I replied: Tell me in one sentence what an Indian looks like,” the five-time chief minister said.

Thanhawla attributed the birth of regionalism and secessionism to racial abuse faced by those from the North East in other parts of the country. “That is why in the North East, regionalism is very high. [Feelings of] secessionism are very high. We are not accepted outside the North East. This is how so-called Indian people treat us,” he said.

In March this year, a student from Arunachal Pradesh studying in Bengaluru had filed a police complaint against his landlord for beating and forcing him to lick his shoes. Higio Guntey had alleged that he was subjected to such humiliation for having used up more than his share of water.

In the same month, four Nigerian students, accused of cannibalism, sustained severe injuries after being attacked by a group of residents in Greater Noida. The incident triggered a diplomatic crisis, with the envoys of African countries issuing a strong statement against the Centre’s inaction in the matter.

Conflicts over land in India stall projects worth billions of dollars - report


MUMBAI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Conflicts related to land and resources are the main reason behind stalled industrial and development projects in India, affecting millions of people and putting billions of dollars of investment and the economy's health at risk, two reports said.

An analysis of 289 ongoing cases, which make up about 40 percent of major land conflicts, found they affected 3.1 million people and more than 12 trillion rupees ($178 billion), a report by the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) in Mumbai said.

Land is increasingly sought in India for industrial use and development projects, as one of the world's fastest growing major economies expands.

While legislation such as a 2006 forest rights law and a 1996 act on tribal areas aims to protect the rights of farmers and indigenous communities over their lands, the laws are usually diluted and poorly implemented, activists say.

"The only way to ensure India's continued development will be to effectively implement the laws and remove the anomalies in property-rights regimes," said Geetanjoy Sahu, a professor at TISS and one of the report's authors.

Many cases end up in court. Matters related to land and property make up about two-thirds of all civil cases in India, according to a recent study by Bengaluru-based legal advocacy group Daksh.


The study by TISS found that most conflicts relate to infrastructure and industrial projects, with infrastructure accounting for almost half the disputes.

More than 40 percent of all land-related conflicts involve forest lands, with acquisitions by the government being the major cause of conflict in 60 percent of all reported cases.

Earlier this year, the Supreme Court said land acquired by West Bengal for a Tata Motors factory must be returned to farmers, ending a decade-long battle.

There have been violent clashes in Jharkhand in recent months over land acquisitions and proposed changes to land laws in the state.

"Without clarity on land and forest rights, competing claims between communities and the government will continue to fuel conflict and put India's socioeconomic future at risk," said the TISS study.

A second study by the Rights and Resources Initiative and the Indian School of Business shows that at least 14 percent of more than 40,000 projects announced between January 2000 and October 2016 were stalled due to disputes over land acquisition.

When it comes to high-value projects, the figure is higher, at a fourth. Power projects were the worst affected, followed by cement, steel and mining, the report said.

The main reasons for disputes are loss of common lands - which communities use for farming, fishing, livestock rearing, and grazing; dissatisfaction with compensation amounts, and concern over environmental impact, the report said.

India to ratify the Paris Climate Change agreement


India to ratify the Paris Climate Change agreement on October 2, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday in a sudden announcement that will give momentum to implementation of measures at international level to control global warming.

During the Paris climate meet in December last, more than 190 nations had agreed on setting ambitious goals for capping global warming and funnelling trillions of dollars to poor countries facing climate catastrophe.

The pact will come into force after it is ratified by at least 55 countries that account for 55 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions.

By ratifying now, India gets a seat at the 55/55 conference - when 55 countries with 55% emissions ratify the agreement, the countries set up a conference that is to change rules of the game. This is different from earlier days when India has been late to the party, then spent years trying to gain entry.

Its an indicator on how India wants to present itself as a responsible global power, India  has announced it will review the Indus Waters Treaty therefore Paris climate change agreement is important in this regard.

While Western countries, including the US, had been supporting an early ratification of the pact, India had been seeking more time to complete its national processes as it fears that any hasty decision may impact its developmental projects.
