Maoists in Karnataka are reportedly developing a soft corner towards police constables in a strategic move to divide the police cadre. Maoists are discussing the problems of police constables demanding that they should be given the facilities that their seniors enjoy. The ultras seek higher salaries & better financial status for constables on par with their higher ups. Constables form the bulk of causalities in the encounters & are the largest manpower resource for the police. The maoists reportedly believe that by taking up the cause of lower rung cops they can divide the police & blunt their force. Maoists are also trying to cash in on the industrial policy of the state government & the communal divide in the coastal districts. These demands are not quite reasonable when we dig deep & get to know there real motive behind this. Also, Mr. Chidambaram has shown the concern about the state of police force in India & has stepped up the police reforms to take care of such issues !!

If you have a very high GDP growth rate, you may attract scores of SEZ's , you may attract hi flier corporations from abroad, but then the money that is generated by them gets rotated by them exclusively. It is the GINI which transforms all that into national development.

In that regard, I think what MAoists are asking for is quite sensible, even if I stand to lose out of the deal.

All developed countries in their destinies went through phases which focuses exclusively on GINI. Only after they established that standard GINI did they branch out into GDP initiative. China from 1950 up to 1980s was focusing mor ...more
