WATCH VIDEO:?PM Narendra Modi Optimistic About BRICS Summit: Here’s What He Said Since India is hosting the summit it has invited countries from its eastern neighbourhood – under the umbrella of BIMSTEC that includes Bangladesh Myanmar Sri Lanka Thailand Bhutan and Nepal – for an outreach with the BRICS leaders Begun at the summit in Fortaleza 2014 this practice was adhered by Russia in Ufa in 2015 when the host called leaders from the countries in the region So Brazil had called the Latin American countries in Fortaleza for an outreach with the BRICS leaders (that was Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s first multi-lateral outing) and Russia had called the central Asian and countries part of the SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organisation) However since Pakistan was seen as a spoiler in the region India decided to exclude them from the regional outreach one reason being it wanted to avoid the inevitable China-Pakistan axis at the BRICS summit This was much before a majority of the SAARC countries decided to pull out of the SAARC summit in Islamabad forcing its postponement Instead India called the neighbours in the east – under the rubric of its Act-East policy But there is no doubt that the Pakistan factor will definitely loom large over the BRICS summit – especially after the surgical strikes in the post-Uri attack phase India is cautious in not making the mistake of putting Pakistan at the fore of the agenda but through the arc of terrorism it will ensure that all countries from BRICS and BIMSTEC are on the same page It will be interesting to see how China responds to Delhi’s moves as they are Islamabad’s all-weather friends As a commentator in Goa rightly observed “Whatever gathering the South Asia region may host be it SAARC or BRICS or BIMSTEC the India-Pakistan equation is always bound to play on everyone’s minds” For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by Shaju Philip |

earner from Koiguda a small hamlet in the outskirts of Nabarangpur town The one thing that keeps her family of four — which includes a son daughter-in-law and grandson — going is their monthly ration of 25 kg of rice at Rs 1/kg and four litres of kerosene at Rs 15/litre Also Read:Nabarangpur produces enough rice for itself and more “Everybody gets their quota of rice and kerosene on the 10th of every month There may be occasional half-a-litre or so shortfall in kerosene but never in rice” said Jugdev Jani who farms four acres at Sanakumari village in Umerkote block Also Read: Getting more water for fields Pujari and Jani both adivasis from Bhatra and Kandha communities respectively personify a district that is India’s poorest yet not hungry in the conventional sense Here poverty lies in low incomes limited growth and employment opportunities and lack of access to basic infrastructure and public services “Poverty here isn’t about two square meals or people going to bed hungry” said Rashmita Panda Nabarangpur’s district collector There is some truth to these assertions Nabarangpur district has 261432 families with ration cards covering 955 per cent of the district’s total 273663 households as per the 2011 Census The 261432 ration cards include 110320 issued to those below poverty line 41675 above poverty line and 54246 PLO (poor left out) households who get 25 kg of rice each per month at Rs 1/kg In addition there are 51539 Antyodaya Anna Yojana ‘poorest-of-the-poor’ families (whose entitlement is 35 kg at Rs 1/kg) 1733 Annapurna scheme beneficiaries (senior citizens who get 10 kg free rice every month) and 1919 disabled persons (10 kg at Rs 1/kg) “We have ensured every family barring a few gets a minimum quantity of rice at Rs 1/kg and no one goes hungry” said Ramesh Padhi the civil supplies officer of Nabarangpur There are lessons in this for governments including in West Bengal where there have been reports of starvation deaths in the northern tea-growing districts especially Alipurduar and Jalpaiguri A farmer in his paddy field in Nabrangpur district of Odisha (Express Photo by: Kameswar Rao) There are a total of 192 fair price shops in the 10 blocks and two municipalities of Nabarangpur The bulk of these are managed by gram panchayats (158) or women’s self-help groups (32) The latter also run 486 of the district’s 553 kerosene retail outlets which is also seen to exercise check on diversion Interestingly the incidence of diversion is said to be the least in Maoist-dominated blocks of Jharigam Chandahandi and Raighar “They actually act as informal enforcement squads undertaking surprise inspections to check whether grain is being properly distributed” said a district official on condition of anonymity Ironically the implementation of the National Food Security Act (NFSA) from next month will bring down the number of public distribution system (PDS) beneficiaries in Nabarangpur “The NFSA prescribes criteria for exclusion of households like those who are income tax payers draw monthly income of more than Rs 10000 in rural and Rs 15000 in urban areas or own tractors and four-wheelers We expect the overall coverage to fall to around 86 per cent as a result The monthly PDS grain allocation will also come down from 7000 to 5600-5800 tonnes” said Padhi Nabarangpur significantly is a rice surplus district producing twice its own consumption requirement Paddy storage godown at Badamada in Nabrangpur district of Odisha (Express Photo by: Kameswar Rao) Nabarangpur’s poverty explained What makes Nabarangpur poor even though over 95 per cent of families in the district get 25 kg rice at Rs 1 per kg every month The answer is low incomes limited growth and employment opportunities and lack of access to basic infrastructure and public services They are poor by every yardstick (express Photo by: Kameswar Rao) To start with there is hardly any industry in Nabarangpur apart from small-scale rice mills a smattering of cashew processing units and a struggling medium density fibreboard manufacturing company (Mangalam Timber Products) that reported a loss of Rs 10 crore on sales of below Rs 40 crore in 2014-15 This is unlike even neighbouring Koraput district which has among other things National Aluminium Company’s complex at Damanjodi Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd’s engine division at Sunabeda and Ballarpur Industries’ paper manufacturing unit at Jeypore Nabarangpur doesn’t even a railway line of its own All this is reflected in data beyond mere rice production and consumption Nabarangpur’s per capita income or net domestic product at factor cost for 2010-11 (the last year for which comparable figures are available) at Rs 23473 was just over 40 per cent of the corresponding all-India average of Rs 54710 The district’s literacy rate of 4643 per cent in 2011 was similarly lower than the average for not only India (7404 per cent) but also Odisha (7287 per cent) The disparity was even more for female literacy where the corresponding rates were 3580 6546 and 6401 per cent The same goes for provisioning of basic infrastructure According to the 2011 Census only 126 per cent homes in Nabarangpur had electricity against 672 per cent for all-India In 861 per cent of houses the main source of lighting was kerosene Further only 34 per cent households had LPG connections as compared to the national average of 285 per cent 866 per cent of Nabarangpur’s families used firewood as fuel for cooking Likewise just 93 per cent of its homes had latrines within premises and 873 per cent had no drainage link for wastewater whereas these ratios were 469 per cent and 489 per cent at the all-India level The poverty of Nabarangpur comes out equally in various other standard of living indicators In 2011 only 241 per cent of its households availed of banking services 77 per cent had motorised two-wheelers and 185 per cent owned mobile phones and 86 televisions as against their respective national averages of 587 21 532 and 472 per cent All these make for a district that is desperately poor even if not hungry For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More
