And I thought,instead of just having me convince you of that I would give you a few numbers so you can assess for yourself if things have changed US investments in India in 2005 were 77 billion last year they were 28 billion; two-way trade between India and US in 2005 was 36 billion dollars and last year it was a 104 billion dollars In 2005 there were 85 Indian companies operating in the US Last year there were well over 200 Indian companies I could go on and on It’s important to look at the data and see for yourself where the relationship has gone And obviously we will have months or weeks where people think it’s not going so well but if you look at the 10 years it’s actually gone pretty well So where does that leave us now We continue to build our several key areas First and foremost strategic cooperation remains a bedrock of our relationship so the defence the intel sharing the military exercises the co-production the co-development We are at a fundamentally different level of security partnership with India than we have ever been before As for economics and trade we are pushing hard to reach that 500 billion dollar goal in two-way trade And I really think we can get there And I believe we can talk tonight about all the issues that need to be resolved And the ease of doing business and economic reforms but ultimately that category is not just so that businesses can do better it’s so that Indian people and American people can have a better way of life Two giant democracies two giant economies coming together can have a really positive impact for people throughoutthe economic pyramid We are fundamentally lined up to support India’s aspiration to be a leading power in the world Not just a balancing power but a rising power We want India to be a global strategic player political player economic player We want it to have a seat in the UN Security Council to be in export control regimes to be active members in G20 and WTO On the chaos in Parliament and legislative paralysis I also come from a Capital that is periodically known for some degree of gridlock And having lived in Washington for two decades I know how difficult this can be If you look at any 12-month period of other foreign capitals — London Washington Paris — and look at the degree of progress that has been made I think it is a relatively positive story about where we have come We have to do and I say the United States the people pushing economic reforms have to do a better job conveying the sense that pro-reform can be good for ordinary citizens too that these are not inconsistent principles That you can open up the economy and still have fidelity with people who need those kinds of opportunities That’s been proven in emerging economies across the world We have to do a better job so that the reform story actually helps lift people from the bottom of the pyramid The other phenomenon that we are seeing is that as you get gridlocked in the nation’s capital whether it is Washington or New Delhi you see a lot of activity move to the states We have seen the states make a very aggressive push for western investments I give you the example of Google that it’s going to open up its second largest technology and research park in the world in southern India which is a good development for Google it’s good development for the United States and it’s good for India but they did that largely through working with the state government This kind of race to the top that we are seeing in states is a very positive step On the changing US worldview The Iran deal is very much an alive debate in our Congress right now The secretary of state heralded this as a diplomatic victory It was hard-fought diplomacy that achieved the objective that was on the table which was to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon and on that score that’s what this agreement does It’s not about trust it’s about verification It’s about ensuring that Iran does exactly that and not pursue nuclear weapons development On Pakistan and combating terrorism Fighting terrorism is a big component of our cooperation that means sharing intelligence and operating together We do this to protect the values that we hold so dear Our policy in Pakistan is designed to see some degree of stability and some degree of peace for people and to ensure that this insurgency that threatens the people of Pakistan that threatens free people across the border can no longer threaten people And so certain tools are required I look back at our assistance levels in Pakistan last year and the vast amount of assistance was on the civilian side on health infrastructure on education to bolster the civilian elements of society and yes there was a defence component as well to help give Pakistan the tools to combat insurgency I understand the tension but I think it’s in no one’s interest for chaos to reign The President also said some other things when he was here which is that safe havens wherever they are including in Pakistan have to be shut down and that perpetrators of terrorism have to be brought to justice and that includes those of the Mumbai attacks On the government crackdown on NGOs When I made my comments about this subject it was because both of our countries have such a vibrant tradition in civil society and there are two million NGOs operating in India — far more than in the US I also said it’s critically important for NGOs to be legally compliant be regulatory compliant but let’s not send the message to those NGOS including the one (anti) child trafficking NGO whose founder was a Nobel Prize winner… So you think about the work NGOs are doing on health on education on literacy on environment let’s make sure they all feel welcome We have had a very constructive dialogue on this (with the Indian government) and I am hoping that we will continue to have that dialogue and move in the right direction Ultimately these are questions for the people of this country to resolve We can have a view but the space that is given to the civil society to NGOs is a question for the people of India to resolve For all the latest India News download Indian

the lines of the Kendriya Vidyalayas in Kishenganj (Bihar) Ajmer (Rajasthan) and Mewat (Haryana) exclusively for students from minority communities Each school to be set up at an approximate cost of Rs 5 crore will have a capacity of about 1000 students While the National Buildings Construction Corporation has already submitted the final plans for the buildings the ministry does not want to wait Efforts are on to start classes from the 2014-15 academic session in rented accommodation “All status reports on minorities have always pointed out a need for better school education infrastructure for their children That is why we will set up schools exclusively for these children through the Maulana Azad Education Foundation (MAEF) We are hoping to start classes from the 2014-15 session When the school buildings are ready the students can be shifted there We are writing to all state governments for allotment of land — at least five acres — for the schools” said Minority Affairs Minister K Rehman Khan The MAEF — a voluntary non-political non-profit social service organisation fully funded by the ministry with the minister as its ex-officio president — was roped in to avoid controversy over the government setting up minority institutions The MAEF will be the controlling authority for the schools The Kendriya Vidyalaya model has been adopted because the 1094 KVs have the highest success rate In 2013 100 per cent KV students cleared both the Class X and Class XII CBSE examinations While the original plan was to start five schools only the Bihar Haryana and Rajasthan governments have offered the required land so far The long-term plan said Khan is to open a school in each of the 200 districts in the country which have a high population of minorities “If each school has 1000 students it would mean that if we cover all 200 districts there would be 2 lakh minority students who pass out of school every year That would be a good number to integrate into the workforce” said Khan According to data provided by the Ministry of Human Resource Development in reply to a Parliament question in March last year only 1331 per cent of Muslim children in the age group of 6-14 years were enrolled in schools in 2011-12 There is no data of primary/ secondary school enrolment for any other minority community For all the latest India News download Indian Express
