For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by P Chidambaram | Updated: January 8 2016 5:30 am Army men stand guard near the Indian Air Force (IAF) base at Pathankot (Reuters) Related News I write this with a profound sense of grief contrition and disappointment borderingon despair Since the subject I have chosen for this special column is the terrorist attack on the Pathankot air force base I resolved that I should weigh every word and phrase with extra caution before I commited them to paper and ultimately to print First let me salute the valour of the seven men who were killed in the terrorist attack Five of them were retired and re-employed jawans and presumably no longer subject to training or drill; one was killed despite being highly skilled; and one lost his life while engaging the terrorists I mourn their deaths along with their families and millions of citizens Second I rue the fact that several internal security tasks remained unfinished when the UPA government demitted office in May 2014 the most important among them being the constitution of the National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC) The key pillars of counter-terrorism are intelligence analysis and single command and control More often than not raw information lies as raw information and is practically useless Honing information into intelligence is analysis and that is a specialist’s function In the complex world of counter-terrorism high-quality analysis requires a multidisciplinary approach bringing together the skills of the border guard and the computer technologist the policeman and the professor (of chemistry or engineering or psychology) the spy and the scientist The third pillar is a single command and control to undertake counter-terrorist operations I had reflected on the idea of an NCTC for many months We had engaged with many experts in the field We had studied different models I was convinced that the NCTC was an imperative especially in a federal system with as many police administrations as there are states and Union territories We had already made a beginning with the Multi Agency Centre (MAC) within the Intelligence Bureau (IB) and in every state and it required only two or three more courageous steps to constitute the NCTC My feeling of remorse is because I did not succeed in notifying the NCTC before I left the ministry of home affairs on July 31 2012 It is a long story and shall be told on another day Suffice for the present to say that the NCTC was stalled by blind and unreasoned opposition The thousands of words spoken and written in the last few days (though I admit I have not heard or read them all) seem to have missed a fundamental change in the nature of the threat faced by the country today One of the worst terror attacks on Indian soil took place on the four horror-filled days between November 26 and 29 2008 Since then there have been four major terrorist attacks and several minor ones The major attacks were carried out in Pune Mumbai Delhi and Hyderabad What marked them out as fundamentally different from other major attacks in the past was that there was no proven connection to Pakistan They were carried out by Indian-born and Indian-bred terrorists The investigation pointed to the Indian Mujahideen or SIMI and in the case of the Delhi attack to a Kashmiri group Likewise the minor incidents were also traced to Indian groups in different states That fundamental difference seems to have vanished since 2015 We seem to be back to the pre-2008 days The Pakistani state or non-state is back as the source Terrorist attacks in Dinanagar district Gurdaspur Punjab (July 27 2015) Udhampur in Jammu and Kashmir (August 5 2015) and Pathankot in Punjab (January 2 2016) and some minor incidents have been traced back to Pakistan Third my disappointment is with the manner in which the counter-terror system in the government responded to the situation that had fundamentally changed since the middle of 2015 It is a fair inference that the foreign office the defence forces and the internal security establishment have not noted the change and have not been talking to each other My disappointment turned to despair as the nation watched the response to the Pathankot attack It was déjà vu There was no sign of a “single command and control” The Defence Security Corps re-employs retired jawans who are not much better than armed gatekeepers The Garud Force is a defensive arm of the air force to protect air force assets The NSG is a target-specific counter-terrorist force not a battlefield unit Yet these were the units that were called in as the first responders The one trained battle-ready counter-terrorist force the army’s Special Forces was nearby but not deployed to secure the sprawling base or the perimeter Does the home minister meet with the NSA the home secretary the special secretary (IS) and the heads of the IB and RAW every day It appears not Had MAC provided inputs in the days immediately prior to January 1 We do not know Was the cabinet committee on security convened immediately after the security forces engaged the terrorists There is no official word but the home minister did not attend any meeting after January 2 As the saying goes “things happen” but we cannot let things happen The matter of security of the people cannot be left to individuals however brilliant they may be We need an institutional arrangement and the response to a terror attack must be an institutional response led no doubt by brilliant individuals Is there a case for constituting the NCTC Look no further than the Pathankot terror attack The draft notification was revised after taking into account the states’ concerns and sensibilities The revised draft leaves room for any reluctant state to join the NCTC after an interval of time (as was done in the case of VAT) The draft notification is on the home minister’s table A copy is with the prime minister’s office The best message of reassurance to a shaken and sceptical nation and the best warning to our enemies that we take terrorism as a serious threat will be to notify forthwith the National Counter Terrorism Centre The writer is a former Union home and finance minister For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Tavleen Singh | Updated: August 10 2014 1:09 am Prime Minister know that these officials lie when they tell you that all is well in India Related News This August 15 for the first time in years a real leader with a real mandate will speak to us from the ramparts of the Red Fort When Narendra Modi stands up to make his Independence Day address from those historic ramparts let him remember that he won a full majority because he promised change Not continuity Many in his circle of advisors will advise continuity They will urge him to read from a written text They will advise him to read out a meaningless balance sheet of supposed political and economic achievements that only those who write such speeches know of Please remember Prime Minister that the officials who write these speeches have no idea how desperate Indians are for real change They are written by people who constitute that small group of privileged Indians who have no idea of the everyday horrors of being an average Indian They are people who have safe jobs fine homes with running water and electricity and their privileged progeny go to fine schools They have no idea what it is to be an ordinary Indian but you do because for most of your life you were an ordinary Indian This is why during the campaign you touched so many hearts with your words You Prime Minister know that these officials lie when they tell you that all is well in India All is well only in their India It is not well at all in the India in which most Indians live Most of India’s citizens live without essential public services Those who have jobs and live in urban India struggle to get to work on crowded trains and buses that travel through cities and towns that have become vast shanties Those forced by poverty to rely on state schools struggle to find a school that will teach their children to at least count and read If they have a roof that they call their own it is usually atop a one-room tenement Those who live in rural India live without that most fundamental of human needs: clean drinking water They also often live without electricity sanitation or municipal services They struggle to find jobs to supplement their meagre income from marginal farming And because of filthy living conditions far too many children die of preventable diseases long before they get to school On her 67th birthday as a modern nation India is a mess Half her children are officially malnourished More than 600 million Indians live without basic sanitation Most Indians struggle all their lives just to own a home they can call their own Most Indian children leave school without being able to read a story Every year 15 million young Indians come into the job market in search of jobs that the government can no longer create So when we speak of continuity as many ministers have already started doing then this is the continuity we speak of Continuity is the last thing the average Indian wants because continuity means his children have no hope They will continue to live in squalour and eke out an existence on jobs that pay them only enough to keep them from destitution They will continue to live in an India that offers so little to her citizens that they flee to foreign shores even if it means living as our nurses did in Iraq with a threat to their very existence hanging over them This year we have a Prime Minister who cannot be blamed for any of this So he has no reason to lie about India’s ‘achievements’ He is not to blame for policies that in the name of the poor have kept the poor in hopeless poverty for decades He is not to blame for India’s broken healthcare system her useless state schools her squalid cities and filthy villages He is not to blame for our sacred rivers having become sewers Or for agricultural policies that in the name of helping our poorest farmers keep them mired in poverty and allow millions of tonnes of food grain to rot in the rain So instead of lying about the past let the Prime Minister tell us what his government will do to make India a better country Let him revive the dream of renewal and change that won him the election While he has been busy in foreign lands his ministers have shown us that they do not understand what needs to change Most seem to be in the toils of cunning officials who advise continuity and ministers inexperienced in the ways of government and the wiles of high officials believe them On August 15 the Prime Minister needs to reassure us that the dream of ‘parivartan’ was not a false dream He could be making the most important speech he has ever made Follow Tavleen Singh on Twitter @ tavleen_singh For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News and half an hour from St John’s.
