Service | Updated: July 9 2015 4:21 am The blowout in China following the turmoil in Greece will dampen spirits and further cloud the outlook on global growth Related News The ripple effect of China’s stockmarket meltdown was felt across the world on Wednesday Indian markets fell 2 per cent or over 450 points on the BSE Index the steepest in a month Trading has been halted on almost 1300 Chinese firms listed on the Shanghai and Shenzhen exchanges This was after the Shanghai Composite Index dropped 59 per cent in a three-week-long sell off that erased over $32 trillion in value despite policymakers and state regulators throwing everything and the kitchen sink at it to stem the slide There had been enough warnings of a Chinese stockmarket bubble or irrational exuberance by global equity strategists uncomfortable with stratospheric valuations and soaring stock prices despite concerns about slowing growth in the world’s second largest economy It was also fuelled by easy money and the securities regulator talking up the markets which includes a growing number of new retail investors including students The Chinese stockmarket has a low institutional base and foreign participation is limited to below 2 per cent of equity so retail investors have been mainly hurt by the volatility The central bank the securities regulator and the government have intervened by instituting monetary easing halting initial public offerings and nudging state-owned firms to offer funding support and buy stock But as we have seen in the past when such bubbles are pricked measures to stabilise the market often don’t work in the near term especially if there is a crisis of confidence and a disconnect between economic fundamentals and the state of the real economy The impact has also depressed commodities markets especially metals fuelling worries of a broader impact on the Chinese economy which has been an engine of global growth The blowout in China following the turmoil in Greece will dampen spirits and further cloud the outlook on global growth From India’s perspective these events may not cause immediate worry but should serve as a lesson to policymakers Unlike China India’s infrastructure needs fixing and there is plenty of potential as RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan has pointed out for Indian firms to make in India for Indian consumers Indeed on paper India appears to be a safe haven compared to other volatile economies But disappointingly over the last few months the government has failed to grasp such opportunities having wasted its political capital on battles that could have been fought later like land legislation The crises unfolding elsewhere offer another window of opportunity for the Narendra Modi government to step up the pace of execution of shovel-ready projects in infrastructure and move on executive decisions to repair stretched bank balance sheets For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Shubhangi Khapre | Mumbai | Published: May 19 2017 4:41 am Congress Leader Ashok Chavan Top News The poor response to the membership enrolment drive ahead of the organisational elections has left top leadership in the Congress worried in Maharashtra May 15 which was the last date for the drive failed to elicit the desired response within the party members as well outsiders A section within the party has also urged the AICC to urge the election commission to give further extension However no decision has been conveyed to the Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) as yet MPCC president Ashok Chavan said “The Congress central observer Mahesh Joshi (ex-MP Rajasthan) will arrive in Mumbai on Friday We are assimilating the reports from various districts across state Our focus is on organisational elections which mandates we have to cover at least 60 per cent of our total booths” Party leaders have reconciled that in current political situation great enthusiasm amongst the people to get associated with Congress was not expected However what makes district leaders — especially in Vidarbha Marathwada and western Maharashtra — worried is the lack of initiative from the Congress members during the enrolment drive A senior functionary involved in the enrolment process revealed “Frankly our enrolment drive is not going to match the BJP which has digitally registered 110 crore members in state We are looking at meeting the moderate target beginning with 10 to 15 lakh members who have always remained loyal party workers” A former senior Congress minister from western Maharashtra requesting anonymity told The Indian Express “As per our party guidelines an individual can become an active Congress member eligible to contest elections or become an office-bearer provided he enrolls 25 members We sense poor response from party leaders even in this exercise” Officially MPCC believes the summer season is not suitable for the membership enrolment People are on vacation students busy with examination and farmers caught in their own problems In the absence of immediate polls enrolment appears a disconnect with people At least 25 senior Congress leaders who have been associated with the party for the last three decades elicited similar response on the current membership and organisational election drive An MPCC office-bearer said “The cadre is demoralised after the 2014 Lok Sabha and Assembly elections The successive poll victory of the BJP in municipal council zilla parishad and gram panchayat elections have left even the established MLAs worried” Secondly he said “There are no efforts from the AICC or MPCC to hold internal brain-storming sessions to streamline the organisation or do long-term planning” The reports across Marathwada Vidarbha north Maharashtra western Maharashtra and Konkan have shown that the Congress local workers are not taking the extra initiative which was necessary to connect the people with the party ahead of the organisational polls A senior leader from Konkan said “Today we don’t know the status of our own senior leader like Narayan Rane who attacks party leaders one day and praises them the next day” Similarly the ongoing four-phase “Sangharsh Yatra” saw the NCP hijacking the rallies at every place Several senior leaders who could have made a difference were kept out of the yatra For all the

Related News AT 230 pm Tuesday the office of the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) at Nariman Point wore a deserted look Ehsan Khan the sole ticket-booking staffer was attending to two passengers Until six months ago the office had four staff members who were booking at least a hundred passengers for each flight to Karachi “The passengers are here to ask for a re-route of their journeys since our services will be suspended from Thursday As no other airline offers direct connectivity to Karachi we are helping them take a switch from Dubai from where they can take a PIA flight to Karachi” Khan said As PK275 the last flight to Karachi from Mumbai took off Monday the hearts of seven permanent working staff at the airline’s Mumbai office sank The future of their jobs now hinges on what they believe could be a rushed decision taken at the PIA headquarters in Karachi From tension at the border to terror attacks for these staffers the passenger traffic on the Mumbai-Karachi and Karachi-Mumbai flights has been an indicator of the status of the relations between the two countries Even as Delhi and Islamabad tussled their routine did not see any change “I am four years away from retiring as the passenger sales and reservation manager at the airline’s station office in Mumbai” said Mansoor Sayed “I am the seniormost staff here as far as experience is concerned A job termination at this age would not be so easy as I do not know where to go now My knees hurt and my family financially depends on me” said Sayed who has been making a 32-km journey to his Mittal Towers office in Nariman Point from Jogeshwari for the last 29 years On May 5 the airline received an official mail from Karachi that said it would have to suspend Mumbai operations due to the carrier’s inability to see higher traffic The mail also hinted at a possible work termination of the staff employed at the Mumbai station office “Humare toh jawani ke din nikal gae yaha kam karke Abhi budhape me ye haal dekhna pad raha hai (We spent our youth in working for this airline We are facing this crisis now during our old age)” Sayed rued The airline started its Karachi-Mumbai-Karachi services in January 1977 Senior officials who have worked with the airline remember it as one of the most profitable airlines then With larger passenger capacity aircraft more traffic and cargo trade the airline would operate at least one flight a day from Mumbai to Karachi till early 2000s as opposed to two-a-week in the last six months “Our airline has always witnessed a lot of passenger traffic with people expecting to meet their friends and relatives in the two cities The other passenger traffic constituted of the labour class who wanted to hit the Gulf countries or medical tourists looking to approach Indian hospitals for cheaper treatment Over the years various factors contributed to the fall of this premium airline service” said PIA’s country manager Muhammad Baragzai a Pakistani national For the staff at PIA a turbulence in Indo-Pak relations reflected in the airline’s performance and sales “Since procuring visas to travel between the two countries was not easy the delays in obtaining visas led to a dip in passenger traffic” said a senior staff member “In December 2001 when Indian Parliament in Delhi was attacked by terrorists the Indian government suspended operations of the airline We looked for new jobs till the airline absorbed us back in 2003 The situation was never the same after that as each major activity causing tension between the two countries affected our operations The final blow came in 2008 after the 26/11 Mumbai attacks post which not only did we downsize the number of aircraft but PIA’s traffic was also majorly hit” Sayed said The seven staff members all Indian nationals also rued the fact that traffic on the Mumbai-Karachi flight was always compared to that of the Delhi-Lahore flight They claimed that despite showing better sales and operational capacity than their counterparts in Delhi Mumbai had to bear the brunt of PIA’s cost-cutting measures The staffers said their last promotion was in 1999 and they had received no salary hikes since Three employees recalled having fought their way back into the office in 2013 after the airline’s attempt to retrench them “Time has come to do the same again We are seeking legal help to be able to ensure their jobs remain If not we will fight for a decent remuneration of the pending dues to the seven employees” Baragzai added For the employees who have worked with the PIA for at least 20 years the office is an extension of home “We would take time off for namaaz and we were allowed to work half days during Ramzan That is why we have held on to our jobs for so long but are worried about what lies ahead” said Ehsan Khan Satish Dalvi who has put in 13 years with the PIA said he always felt at home working with the airline “For festive holidays such as Ganeshotsav and Diwali the airline was specifically considerate It is sad that the performance of an airline that caters to an important international route is based on the relations between the two countries” “My eldest daughter is about to complete her engineering and aims to do post-graduation After reading reports of the airline’s closure of Mumbai office she asked me if she could study further Being the only breadwinner of the family what am I to say to this” added Sohail Khan another employee and resident of Andheri West With most of them nearing retirement finding another job may not be easy at this point “I believe Allah will find a way for us I am keeping a positive attitude and a smile on my face as that will help me keep going” said Arshad Choralia airport supervisor with the PIA “We are tired of being the scapegoats” Baragzai said adding: “It is time our pleas and concerns were heard and the airline resumed its service There is a huge demand from the travellers for direct connectivity between Mumbai and Karachi and we were providing that If not for us the service should be resumed for the passengers” nehakulkarni@expressindiacom For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More
