too can take different approaches to FDI entry retailing as an agent of transformation of the state economy like in Thailand or an agent of restrictive yet balanced economic development like in Malaysia Finallyit is worth noting that retailing is fundamentally a decentralised activity It is local customers that are servedlocal people that are employed in storeslocal propertysalesand employee taxes that are paidand so on Many of the objections to FDI focus on largescale retailing and the associated investment rather than foreign retailers per se But foreign retailing never works unless there is a local fit which is why history suggests that foreign retailers will often fail rather than succeed As long as there is effective retail competition and efficient retail distribution accessible to the majority of peoplethen retailingincluding the products sold and the additional services offeredis dependent upon customer choice In other wordsretailing becomes a democratic process

Sandhu | Updated: July 15 2014 12:37 am Parties must ensure they meet the stated goals on women’s representation in their own constitutions The Election Commission must play a more proactive role in holding them accountable Related News Women constitute a quarter of Narendra Modi’s cabinet even though they make up only a little over 11 per cent of the 16th Lok Sabha This is significant even internationally In South America for instance women hold the same proportion of Cabinet positions but the proportion of women in the lower houses of parliaments is more than double that of India and 17 of the 18 countries have some kind of gender-based quota policy Going beyond token considerations of numbers and portfolios it is worth noting that the women in Modi’s cabinet are backed by considerable leadership experience within the BJP As such this increased representation is in line with more systemic changes in the party and derived of an apparatus that has nurtured women leaders Leadership positions within parties serve as valuable training grounds for women as they seek higher political office An analysis of the role of women within the organisational set-up of various Indian political parties reveals that the BJP has a much better track record of allowing women access to such positions than other parties In 2006 following the recommendations of a committee led by current External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj — and comprising leaders such as Minority Affairs Minister Najma Heptulla and Speaker Sumitra Mahajan — the BJP amended its party constitution to provide a 33 per cent reservation for women within its organisational framework In 2010 this was furthered by another amendment that increased the representation of women in all cadre positions These amendments also institutionalised the powers of the party’s internal women’s movement the Mahila Morcha At the national level the president of the Mahila Morcha serves as an ex-officio member of the central election committee which is responsible for making the final selection of candidates for legislative and parliamentary elections and administering campaigns This is paralleled at the state level The result of these amendments is that as of April 26 of the 77 members — or 337 per cent — of the BJP’s national executive are women Women also comprise 26 per cent of the party’s national office bearers which — though less than 33 per cent — is higher than other political parties in India Juxtaposed against the BJP the representation of women in leadership positions within other political parties is meagre at best and nonexistent at worst Within the Congress only five of the 42 members (including special invitees) of the Congress Working Committee and six of the 57 members of the All India Congress Committee are women Additionally only four of the 14 members of the party’s election committee are women and 30 of the 35 state screening committees for elections don’t have any female representation Paradoxically the Congress’s constitution contains several clauses that reserve seats for women within the party organisation Article VI-A for instance calls for 33 per cent of seats in different committees to be reserved for women Several rules specify that at least 33 per cent of the positions on the executive committee and the AICC will be reserved for women The Congress however isn’t alone in defying its constitution’s impressive rules Statistics for the Trinamool Congress (TMC) and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) are just as discouraging While TMC’s constitution reserves 33 per cent of seats in different committees for women none of the party’s 30 vice presidents only two of eight general secretaries and one of 14 secretaries are women Also of its 10 “frontal organisations” in West Bengal only one — the Trinamool Mahila Congress predictably — is led by a woman The AAP — despite its attempts to distance itself from other parties and change the political discourse — is similarly culpable Whereas the party’s constitution states that seven of 30 members in its highest executive body will be women its 21-member national executive has only a solitary female presence Even the CPM persistent in censuring successive governments for their failure to pass the women’s reservation bill — has only one woman in its 12-member politburo and only 11 women among its central committee’s 74 members Ultimately the absence of women in party leadership positions reflects an apparatus that has been unable to nurture women leaders failing to provide them the opportunity to gain political leadership experience and denying them access to decision-making processes Over the past 15 years while continuing to pass the buck for their collective failure to pass the women’s reservation bill parties have abdicated their role in developing women leaders This is particularly worrisome in the context of women’s reservations because it suggests that our parties are woefully ill-prepared to put up skilled and experienced women thereby validating apprehensions about tokenism and merit that accompanies the discourse on women’s political representation This however is an opportune moment for change Women’s security and socio-economic concerns have never been as much in the forefront as today Female voter turnout increased by nearly 10 percentage points in the 2014 elections Now as political parties after facing setbacks in the 2014 elections ameliorate party structures they must use this opportunity to accord women’s representation its due importance At the very least they must ensure they meet the stated goals in their own constitutions The Election Commission must play a more proactive role in holding them accountable The BJP too must address some lacunae For instance in the party’s various working groups women are largely relegated to the Mahila Morcha finding no representation on the economic agriculture security and legal groups and only marginal representation in others The BJP should also seek to translate the strides in the representation of women in party leadership positions to its candidates’ list only 9 per cent of which in these elections were filled by women Finally there is onus on the women cabinet ministers to draw from their leadership experiences within the BJP as they seek to fulfil their ministerial obligations In doing so they must rise beyond the symbolism that their presence in the cabinet evokes and use their power and influence to expand the discourse on women’s representation and rights

Indian team Garry Calvert put in his resignation papers after he was not given a contract extension till the Tokyo Games another Australian coach has decided against travelling to India Earlier this month sports minister Vijay Goel had approved the appointment of walk coach Dave Smith along with 400 metre coach Galina P Bukharina and two masseurs for the athletics squad However a day after he obtained his Indian visa and was scheduled to travel the two time Olympian has had a change of heart The Athletics Federation of India (AFI) had decided to hire Smith because with a growing pool of walkers it was becoming difficult for Russian Alexander Artsybashev to manage the workload The Sports Authority of India (SAI) had also completed the vetting process “The AFI has written to Smith asking why he has decided not to travel to India at the last moment He has cited his son’s wedding as the reason But that is not an acceptable reason” AFI president Adille Sumariwalla said on Thursday It is learnt that on obtaining his visa Smith had written to SAI asking them to send him his tickets But a day later the Australian seems to have changed his mind “He wants to come to India as a consultant But that will not work for us as we have walkers who need full-time coaching” Sumariwalla added The process of appointing a coach — advertising on the federation’s website shortlisting the applicants and vetting the applications drafting a contract – takes at least two months But with Smith deciding against taking up his role as India coach the AFI has lost out on previous time with the
