    Modi bullied Sharif over terrorism, showed him the way forward: Pak journalist


    ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Narendra Modi "bullied" his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif over terrorism at their first meeting, a writer in a Pakistani newspaper said on Thursday.

    Jalees Hazir said in The Nation that Modi not "only bullied him over terrorism and (the) Mumbai attack but also showed him the way forward ... brushing issues of importance to Pakistan ... under the carpet.

    "The irony is that though he might not be able to say it in so many words, this also seems to be our prime minister's lopsided blueprint for peace with India," said Hazir, a freelance columnist.

    A day after he took oath as Prime Minister, Modi held bilateral meetings with Sharif and leaders of other Saarc nations and Mauritius who attended his swearing-in ceremony.

    Pakistani officials said the Modi-Sharif meeting went off very well.

    Hazir said: "Our prime minister's platitudes about peace and cooperation seemed more than a bit out of place in the face of the thorny issues highlighted by the Indian side. Had he been invited to be lectured by the new Prime Minister of India?

    "Actually, it was Modi's harsh lecturing of a guest which was in bad taste..."

    "The prime minister's desire for friendly ties with India is all very well but it obviously takes two to tango. And anyone following Modi's campaign should have known that he was in no mood to dance."

    the article :

    Peace or business?


    Now that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is back from his Delhi yatra, we can all come down from the cloud of euphoria generated by the media and take a realistic view of the visit. Has it really broken any ice? Should we expect a normalization of Pak-India relations because the two prime ministers both love their mothers?

    Now don’t get me wrong. I’m all for peace with India and loving mothers. I also believe that symbolic gestures of goodwill are a good idea and, sometimes, they even work. The problem with our Prime Minister’s decision to grace the coronation of Modi is that it seemed to hang in the air of wishful thinking. Actually, the problem goes much deeper than that.

    The separate statements to the press given by our prime minister and the Indian foreign secretary after the bilateral meetings say it all. Our Prime Minister’s platitudes about peace and cooperation seemed more than a bit out of place in the face of the thorny issues highlighted by the Indian side. Had he been invited to be lectured by the new Prime Minister of India?
    One cannot fault Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for his friendly tone in Delhi; the occasion called for it. After reciprocating the apparently positive gesture of being invited to the swearing in ceremony of the new Indian prime minister, he could not have spoilt it all by laying all the thorns on the table in his very first meeting with Modi. Actually, it was Modi’s harsh lecturing of a guest which was in bad taste. But our Prime Minister, as they say, asked for it. Didn’t he know where Modi was coming from?

    No matter how hard we try to ignore it, the new Prime Minister of India is no peacenik. His political career is littered with evidence to prove it. He rose from the ranks of the Hindu extremist RSS, stood prominently next to Advani in his yatra to destroy the Babri mosque and the anti-Muslim pogrom in Gujrat took place under his watch as the state’s Chief Minister. His election campaign used communal hatred as a plank and employed anti-Pakistan rhetoric. It would be naïve to dismiss everything that has brought him to the highest office in India and expect him to start behaving differently just because he is now Prime Minister.

    Those harboring such hopes should sober down after this initial interaction between the two prime ministers. Being optimistic is one thing, and disregarding the reality on the ground to pin hopes in the air of wishful thinking another. The prime minister’s desire for friendly ties with India is all very well, but it obviously takes two to tango. And anyone following Modi’s campaign should have known that he was in no mood to dance.
    The invitation to our Prime Minister was heralded as the turning of a new leaf by the new Indian government which it clearly wasn’t. The invitation was sent to all SAARC countries, and its symbolism had more to do with projecting India as the leader of the region rather than expressing any love-pangs for Pakistan. It is confounding how this hegemonic posturing was misinterpreted across the media, and by our government, as the new Indian government’s desire for peace. An impression was created as if Pak-India ties would suffer irreparable damage if the Prime Minister didn’t go to Delhi.
    In any case, though reciprocating a positive gesture is always nice, symbols should be reciprocated with symbols. A ceremonious attendance was all that was needed at this point, and the wishy washy message of peace did not have to be personally delivered by the head of the Pakistani government. Given the momentous changes taking place in our region, and the background of Modi, it would have been more appropriate for the government to send our figurehead president to Delhi. But that kind of ceremonious symbolism seems to be reserved for the SCO and China. And this is the disturbing bit.

    Instead of working to build a closer relationship with the emerging alliance around the SCO, the PML-N government seems eager to become a part of the devious pivot to Asia, being engineered by the US-led empire in the region as a bulwark against China’s rising power. The empire hopes to retain its control of the region by linking China’s neighbors, including the SAARC countries, through a common market and security arrangements. Modi is the tea-boy of corporate imperialism, and India is the empire’s designated regional policeman under him. He must have received full marks for having the SAARC leaders lined up in Delhi for his installation as India’s new, and all powerful, leader.
    In his first contact with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, he not only bullied him over terrorism and Mumbai attacks, but also showed him the way forward; preferential trade with India, opening up Pakistan to the import of electricity and investment from India and brushing issues of importance to Pakistan such as the diversion and damming of water flowing into Pakistan and resolution of the Kashmir dispute under the carpet. The irony is that though he might not be able to say it in so many words, this also seems to be our Prime Minister’s lopsided blue-print for peace with India.

    Actually, the two prime ministers have much in common. They are both sold to the same imperial ideas. It doesn’t seem to matter to them that the neo-liberal economic model of development that they believe in is a recipe that is failing left, right and center as we speak. It is a system of wealth extraction that is designed to work for a handful of people with big money in billions of dollars, throws the crumbs to those trying to make it big and sucks the blood of those striving to survive. You can see its fallout in rich and poor countries where income disparities have increased alarmingly under this model.
    Prosperity is meaningless if it is a small island, getting smaller, surrounded by a sea of misery and squalor. Peace between India and Pakistan on neo-liberal terms will spell disaster for the citizens of both countries.

    Pakis are again misinterpreting Modi's India as a pivot to the American empire. That's a half baked strategy. Modi is the son of the soil and India is a nation of 1.2 billion people. We don't need to be a pivot. India will become a power centre in itself. Our plans are way more sinister... :rolleyes:

    Nobody gives a damn about Modi in Pakistan except a few pro Indian media clowns.
    Infact Modi himself is under pressure from one of his major sponsors, the Ambani group to create a business friendly climate with the adversary so they can start exporting electricity to the lucrative market.

    Ambani wants to set up a 10.000MW plant near the Kuch are for export of electricity to Pakistan.

    If our businesses wanted to tap into Paki market, they'd have backed oh-so-secular Congress, not Modi.

    Yeah, not going to happen. ADAG has yet to tap into the Indian market, and we can pay more for electricity than Pakistanis can.

    There's no way you can generate 10,000 MW unless you're covering an entire desert with solar panels. You generate a just few dozen kVA using PV panels per acre.

    There's no way they can set up either coal-fired plants there, due to lack of water, and logistics.

    There's no way a nuclear plant of the scale of Jaitapur is being set up that close to Paki border. Which again needs as much water as a coal-fired plant.

    Keep dreaming, and pulling things out of your behind.

    the Pakistani area next to Kutch in Pakistani Sindh is rich in minral resources specially coal and Gas. There is no dearth of water there. Chinese energy companies alredy working there . Probably Ambanies wish to invest there and provide electricity to Pakistan at Hindu rates.

    That should be a good proposal.

    Adani Power wants Narendra Modi govt nod for export of electricity to Pakistan
    Priyadarshi Siddhanta, New Delhi | Wednesday, May 21, 2014 08:49 hrs



    Adani Power is planning to set up a 10,000-MW thermal power plant in the Kutch region of Gujarat and the bulk of the electricity to be produced from it is likely to be exported to Pakistan.

    The company, a part of the $8.7-billion Adani Group, is arguably the countryÂ’s leading private sector thermal power producer with a current capacity of 8,520 MW. The ports-to-power group has plans to ramp up electricity production by over 10,000 MW by this financial year, other that the Kutch greenfield project. It is currently developing six projects in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.

    According to a source, Adani Power has discussed the proposal of the Kutch project with the UPA-II government, but there was not much progress. The company hopes implement the proposal during the incoming NDA regime as a coal-based project in phases beginning with 3,300 MW and ramp it up to 10,000 MW within the next five years, he said. Since Gujarat is considered to be a power surplus state, Adani Power is learnt to have decided to sell the electricity to Pakistan. An Adani Group spokesperson did not reply to an e-mailed questionnaire, but called up to say “the company has no comments to offer.”

    While the initial investment would be around Rs 13,000 crore, for ramping up the capacity to 10,000 MW a total of Rs 40,000 crore would be required, according to the source. The project is likely to be implemented by Kutch Power Generation Company Limited (KPGCL), a Adani Power subsidiary. KPGCL would be responsible for generation, evacuation and transmission of electricity. The company is learnt to have acquired land at Bhadreshwar in Kutch for the project, according to sources.

    Adani Power has reported a net profit of Rs 2,529 crore for the fourth quarter ended March 31, 2014, against a net loss of Rs 585.52 crore in the corresponding quarter in the previous fiscal. According to a company statement, its consolidated EBIDTA has risen to Rs 4859 crore in FY14, which is an increase of 322 per cent.

    Last week the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence had slapped a Rs 5,500-crore show cause notice on the Adani Group for alleged over-valuation of capital equipment imports. The notices were served to Adani Power Maharashtra, Adani Power Rajasthan, Maharashtra Eastern Grid Power Transmission Company-and a contractor to the last entity. Also last week the firm announced purchase of the Dhamra Port in Orissa.

    The highlighted part is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. :laugh:
    Why would you want to pay more for your own electricity than Pakistanis? :laugh:

    Now where did you pull it from?

    Shakal sadi hui hai to baat to achi kar lo mere bhai?

    The thing about Pakistan is, No one is really calling the shots.

    It's just bunch of idiots doing whatever the hell they can to export terrorism.

    Its a Messed Up State, with No Identity and No History and No Heritage Whatsover. WHatever History they have, we have created for them in the Past. The Statement itself is so confusing. No Wonder that is the state of Pakistan.
