2016 12:03 am Top News Union External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj is in Myanmar for the first high-level Indian visit since Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League took power The visit comes just as Indians have been served an unpleasant reminder that Nagaland’s long insurgency an historic peace deal signed last year notwithstanding is still underway Last week Indian troops staged a cross-border strike on a military outpost of the National Socialist Council of Nagalim’s SS Khaplang-led faction — part of a process of retaliation for the killings in May of six Indian soldiers by the insurgent group Low-level cross-border attacks like these have taken place for decades but in 2015 New Delhi had hyped one such cross-border strike carried out in the wake of a murderous ambush that claimed the lives of 18 Indian soldiers Learning from experience that chest-thumping doesn’t serve its interests New Delhi has now asserted its forces didn’t cross the border — a claim that Myanmar ever sensitive on sovereignty issues has been quick to endorse The truth however is that both countries have a shared interest in seeing an end to the insurgency and its undertow of gangsterism extortion and drug-trafficking Swaraj’s agenda is a broad one: Her meetings with Myanmar’s new president U Htin Kyaw as well as Aung San Suu Kyi herself span everything from the upcoming BRICS summit to regional economic cooperation It is to be hoped though that the external affairs minister will take the time to discuss what can be done to push forward on containing the threat from Khaplang’s insurgents The problem isn’t easy to solve Khaplang is a partner in Myanmar’s own peace talks with its ethnic groups but sees no interest in a peace deal that confines him to that country alone leaving out Konyak Nagas on the Indian side of the border He has no equities either in India’s pursuit of peace with the rival NSCN faction led by Thuingaleng Muivah representing in the main Tangkhul Nagas In a purely tactical sense it is thus logical for Khaplang to use violence to disrupt the peace process in the hope of securing a better deal from the two governments Myanmar is best positioned though to pressure Khaplang to take what is on offer — and Swaraj should use the opportunity to impress on her hosts that doing so would bring peace and stability to both sides of the border For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Rekha Saxena | Updated: July 28 2016 6:04 am Strengthen Centre-state relations by giving the Inter-State Council teeth Top News The eleventh meeting of the Inter-State Council (ISC) held on July 16 2016 after a gap of 10 years came as a bolt from the blue This delayed convening is surprising given Narendra Modi’s harping on the theme of “cooperative federalism” during the 2014 election campaign While convening the ISC meeting Modi described the forum as the most significant platform to strengthen Centre-state and inter-state relations and discuss policies A federal system needs interactions between the various levels of government namely the union state and local Therefore the need for an inter-governmental mechanism is obvious in this system The framers of early federal constitutions swayed by the classical notion of dual sovereignty did not visualise the need for inter-governmental forums However the architects of India’s Constitution saw the need for inter-governmental forums in the working of the federal system There was a consensus during the Constituent Assembly debates on establishing such a forum In spite of the legal status bestowed upon the ISC under Article 263 it was not set up until the Janata Dal-led National Front Government headed by VP Singh accepted the recommendation of the Sarkaria Commission and established the ISC by a presidential ordinance on May 28 1990 The establishment of the ISC was necessitated by the changes in the Indian party system and the institutional transformations associated with it This body was set up as an instrument for cooperation coordination and evolution of common policies Under Article 263 of the Constitution the ISC is mandated to ensure better Centre-state cooperation and resolve Centre-state or inter-state issues However it has been largely underutilised In its first meeting in October 1990 then PM VP Singh agreed to institutionalise the procedure for regular consultation between the states and the Centre The ISC had then proposed to meet thrice a year but in 26 years it has met only 11 times The reasons for this failure to emerge as an active inter-governmental forum can be discussed in terms of two phases First in the first four decades of the Indian federation during which the ISC was not formally set up the Congress was dominant at the national and state levels Therefore issues were discussed across the table at party forums During this phase the ISC was also sidelined because economic planning necessitated the creation of the National Development Council (NDC) which worked as a functional substitute for the Inter-State Council Second in the multi-party coalition phase since 1989 the importance of the ISC was further reduced as some state parties were represented in the federal coalition government at the Centre and the Union cabinet itself became a kind of inter-governmental forum The return of the single-party majority government at the Centre in 2014 has necessitated the strengthening of inter-governmental mechanisms for the harmonious working of the federal structure In this milieu there is a great need to empower institutions like ISC and make them more interactive inclusive transparent and accountable The ISC can work as an effective forum of cooperative federalism The ISC needs to be given all the powers contemplated in the Constitution Clause A of Article 263 which gave the council the power to investigate issues of inter-state conflict was dropped in the presidential ordinance establishing the ISC It should provide greater opportunities to civil society institutions and the corporate sector to make their representations Moreover the ISC and NITI Aayog should be merged into one constitutional forum to improve the institutional participation of state governments in inter-governmental affairs It will enhance the institutional status of the NITI Aayog by being attached to a constitutional body ie the ISC Further to make the ISC a truly federal rather than a central body its secretariat should be shifted from the Union Home Ministry to the Rajya Sabha secretariat so that it would be under the direction of a neutral federal functionary the vice-president of India rather than Union home minister The writer is professor at the
