Indira Gandhi Rajiv Gandhi Morarji Desai and Gulzarilal Nanda are the other PMs to have been honoured with the country’s highest civilian award While Rajiv Gandhi and Desai were honoured when PV Narasimha Rao was PM Nanda who was twice interim PM was given the award during the tenure of IK Gujral Rao’s decision to honour Desai who headed the Janata administration from 1977 to 1979 — India’s first non-Congress government — was in defiance of the Congress’s party line Perhaps he wanted to set a precedent that all PMs be honoured with the Bharat Ratna His protege Manmohan Singh it is said wanted to continue the practice and had proposed that at least two of his predecessors — Rao and Vajpayee — be given the award He it appears could not press the case since there was no support for the move within the Congress Rao who accorded Padma Vibhushan to Vajpayee had always enjoyed a special relationship with the veteran BJP leader During his premiership Rao had deputed Vajpayee as leader of the Indian delegation to the special session of the United Nations Human Rights Commission in Geneva where a Pakistan-sponsored resolution to censure India on its human rights record in Jammu and Kashmir was successfully thwarted Rao’s gesture had not gone down well within his own party Salman Khurshid the then MoS External Affairs it was said was upset working under Vajpayee in Geneva Vajpayee succeeded Rao in 1996 when the BJP emerged as the single-largest party in the general election His minority government survived only 13 days Vajpayee had personally approached all non-Congress parties and regional satraps for support but they all refused Political considerations may have influenced their decision but there are also conspiracy theories about the then isolation of the BJP It is believed that Rao had an inkling that the US would lobby to deny the premiership to Vajpayee in the event of a hung Lok Sabha Washington’s apathy towards Vajpayee was clearly reflected in some declassified emails sent to Washington by the US embassy in New Delhi One such mail was based on the notes prepared by the US embassy from a conversation between Vajpayee and the then US ambassador to India Frank Wisner that took place prior to the 1996 election In his report Wisner had disfavoured Vajpayee as the next Indian premier because the “body language” of the BJP’s prospective PM indicated that he “would favour a (nuclear) test” When the 1996 general election threw up a hung Parliament the then president Shankar Dayal Sharma appointed Vajpayee as PM and asked him to prove his majority on the floor of the House Rao was certainly pleased with the president’s decision But he knew what was in store for his friend Vajpayee Without losing much time he quietly passed on a chit to Vajpayee at the swearing-in-ceremony atRashtrapati Bhavan which said “now is the time to accomplish my unfinished task” The task Rao had failed to accomplish during his tenure as PM was conducting the nuclear tests However Vajpayee was ousted from office before his government could prepare for the historic task Rao himself was a victim of Washington’s pressure tactics to prevent India from conducting nuclear tests According to classified documents released by the National Security Archive (NSA) and the Nuclear Proliferation International History Project (NPIHP) Washington kept a close watch on the test site and made serious efforts to prevent a test US intelligence agencies according to classified documents from the US now available in the public domain detected signs of India’s test preparations at Pokhran sometime towards the end of 1995 Ambassador Wisner then warned Rao’s office that the move would backfire on Delhi He also met Rao’s principal secretary AN Varma with satellite photographs of the test site according to the documents Later sometime in mid-December the then US president Bill Clinton spoke to Rao over the phone and got the PM’s assurance that India would act “responsibly” These documents also reveal the US tried to use Japanese influence to stop India from going ahead with the tests The United Front governments of HD Deve Gowda and IK Gujral that succeeded Vajpayee were battling political problems and could not have even thought of conducting nuclear tests After the 1998 mid-term election Vajpayee returned to head a coalition government and the first thing he did was to order the nuclear tests On May 11 and 13 1998 Indian scientists accomplished the delicate task with precision putting India in the elite global nuclear club Most Western powers responded to India’s tests with severe economic sanctions The NDA government fell within a year of the tests According to the classified documents the tests took the US intelligence establishment by surprise These documents concede that “satellite imagery could have provided early warning but it was not analysed in time” US intelligence also admitted in these documents that having learned from the 1995 experience the Indians under strict instructions from Vajpayee’s National Security Advisor Brajesh Mishra had concealed their test preparations including at the Pokhran site through a deception campaign The Vajpayee regime not only battled the tough economic sanctions but also withstood internal and external pressures The victory in the Kargil conflict and the apt handling of the Indian Airlines hijacking earned him laurels across the globe In the mid-term polls that had followed Kargil the NDA won a decisive mandate and the Vajpayee government

and the appalling condition of India’s daughters (Source: PTI photo) Top News Two weeks from today the Prime Minister will address the nation from the Red Fort for the third time The significance of this annual speech is not just that it commemorates India’s independence from colonial rule but that it is the closest thing we have to the American President’s state of the union address In this speech the Prime Minister lists his achievements the challenges he continues to face and the state of the country Narendra Modi’s first address from the Red Fort was electrifying He spoke of things no prime minister had dared to do — open defecation sanitation public hygiene and the appalling condition of India’s daughters He drew attention with eloquence and passion to the failures of more than 50 years of Congress rule to address these grim but vital problems Few countries look as bad as India More than 60 per cent of our population has no access to sanitation millions live without clean water and millions of Indian children remain stunted because of spending their childhood in filth These were things that needed to be talked of from as important a pulpit as the Red Fort Sadly that is almost all we have done since then talk about these things On the ground action has been pitifully inadequate If the Prime Minister orders an inquiry into this dire absence of ‘parivartan’ he could find that as usual Indian officialdom has got in the way He may also find that had he trusted his chief ministers more we may at least have seen dramatic change in states ruled by the BJP He chose to trust high officials instead holding regular video conferences with chief secretaries And nothing happened He misjudged the extraordinary skills Indian bureaucrats have to stymie change In his first address from the Red Fort the Prime Minister made the grand gesture of abolishing the Planning Commission Commentators like your columnist who believe that India will only prosper when we shake off the last vestiges of Soviet-style planning cheered from the sidelines I imagined like others did that with central planning tossed in history’s garbage bin the government would get out of the business of doing business I expected that at least in the service sector where officials have repeatedly shown that they are completely hopeless there would by now be signs of privatisation But Modi’s government continues to run the Ashoka Hotel and Air India at huge losses to the Indian taxpayer Why Is it because the same officials who manned the old Planning Commission continue to keep their jobs Is it because clever officials told him that dramatic change was a bad idea I do not know but it is time that the Prime Minister found out Unsurprisingly by the time it came to making his second speech from the ramparts of the Red Fort his most ardent supporters had begun to feel disappointed They saw that too little had changed and it had taken too long for these little changes to show results The Prime Minister seemed not to notice and again it could be because nobody is better at fooling our political leaders into a sense of false security than the mighty mandarins of Raisina Hill So India under Modi has trundled along much as it did before without showing any of the historic changes we had hoped for The ordinary Indian’s interface with the State remains as ugly as ever whether it is with law enforcement officials tax inspectors or those officials supposedly charged with providing public services Meanwhile officialdom has prospered The Seventh Pay Commission will raise the salaries of one crore central government employees in spectacular fashion and their very generous perks will continue untouched Why do we still have Pay Commissions Why are the salaries of bureaucrats not raised on the basis of performance Why are they not penalised when instead of cutting red tape they increase it by for instance giving themselves more powers to harass citizens The new rules that
