prime minister when the vote of no-confidence against him is put to vote is a foregone conclusion but will any one succeed him constitutionally The interested parties and partisan lawyers are interpreting the situation in ways that suit their purposes After ensuring Oli’s defeat in the no-trust motion the challenge before the sponsors of the motion is to not let the prime minister continue in a caretaker capacity for long Letting him do so will lead to Oli becoming more powerful and far less accountable The dangerous precedents in Nepal’s long transition to a republic — an interim PM continuing for long at least three caretaker prime ministers holding on to their posts for seven to 14 months and a sitting chief justice collaborating with political parties — and vague provisions in the constitution about a successor to the PM leaves the matter to President Bidhya Devi Bhandari’s discretion But given her past — vice chairperson in the Oli-led Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist — is not likely to escape the ire of the aggrieved parties even if her decision is fair by all yardsticks The Nepali Congress and the Maoists are determined that any move by the president to stall the election of Maoist chief Pushpa Kamal Dahal as Oli’s successor on the pretext that there is no constitutional clarity over succession will lead to Bhandari’s impeachment That shows the level of distrust among the political parties that were together in the movement for restoration of democracy in 2006 In September 2015 nine years after they assumed power they delivered a half-baked constitution which the two sides now at loggerheads claimed to be the best in the world However the three major parties — Nepali Congress and the Maoists on one side and the Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist that Oli heads on the other — are disputing the constitution’s provisions on finding a successor to a PM who has lost the house’s trust The matter is not likely to be settled by the merits of their arguments or through an emulation of best practices in Nepal or elsewhere in the world The side that has the numbers will win this tussle On Friday Oli refused to put in his papers in exchange of the sponsors of the no-trust motion withdrawing their motion and passing the finance bills in one go Speaker Onsari Gharti who belongs to the Maoist Party deferred the debate on the motion by a day to give the parties time to come to a consensus on Oli’s successor But he finally gave in Interestingly the Maoists voted against the finance bills that were tabled by the Oli government when they were part of the coalition Nepal has been ruled by unstable coalitions for a decade But unlike in the past the issue this time is not about “who will succeed” Political circles are debating “what will happen” to Nepal’s growing — and meaningful — proximity to China in proportion to its distance with India Given China’s clear message that its president Xi Jinping will visit Nepal in a few months only if there is political stability in the country any failure to resolve the political impasse will be deemed a setback For India that will be something to cheer about as not only did Oli take an anti-India position in the wake of its “interference” and its refusal to welcome the constitution but he also directed the focus of his country’s foreign policy northward after the five-month long blockade created hardship and shortage in Nepal In March Nepal and China signed some transit agreements China secured the contract to build an international airport in the tourist city of Pokhara where it will set up a consulate soon Seen in the light of China’s growing engagement with Nepal to the detriment of India President Xi’s visit would have been a milestone “The withdrawal of support to the K P Oli government by the Maoists is clearly a move at the behest of external forces who are interested in stalling the Chinese president’s visit” Sherdhan Rai communication minister in the current coalition says Oli was not as explicit but at his party meeting he is said to have expressed suspicion that India had a role in instigating the no-trust motion Whether that’s an angry reaction or one borne out of evidence is anybody’s guess but India has often been charged of “micromanaging Nepal affairs” —including by the Maoist chief Dahal But in the clash of perceptions over foreign influence the role of the constitution will cease to matter and the sanctity of the offices of the speaker and the president is likely to be adversely affected This is likely to have an effect on the morale and functioning of the security agencies including Nepal’s army as well as the civil administration yubarajghimire@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion

had dismissed the speculation saying Bihar issue did not require to go to Delhi Speaking about continuation of Manjhi as chief ministerKumar said "I am nobody to decide this" Kumar who handpicked Manjhi to succeed him after he quit in the wake of JD(U) debacle in general elections is apparently upset with him particularly after Manjhi transferred many IAS officials close to him and publicly

more promising than “Look East” India’s Look East policy of engaging its neighbours in Southeast Asia and the adjoining region has been suffering from an odd inertia India’s strategic engagement with Asean has increased over time But the fact remains that it is yet to become a significant strategic presence in the region It is not yet a decisive determinant in the strategic dynamic of the Asia-Pacific and is only marginally so for Southeast Asia India’s failure to punch commensurate with its weight has to do with inadequate economic achievements Countries that have a significant say in regional affairs such as China Japan and Australia have strong economic linkages with Southeast Asia Since the beginning of the century India’s trade with the 10-member Asean has increased from around $7 billion to $75 bn Considering that Asean comprises several vibrant export-oriented middle-income economies the increase could have been much greater Indeed India’s trade with China and some of the Gulf countries has increased at a faster pace than with Asean during the last decade While trade with Asean is barely a 10th of India’s total trade trade with India is only 3 per cent of Asean’s total trade Various trade agreements signed with Asean and Southeast Asian countries are often cited as examples of India’s deepening economic engagement These include the goods free trade agreement and the recently concluded services agreement with Asean as well as bilateral trade deals with Singapore Malaysia and Thailand Unfortunately rather than being examples of successful economic engagement they are instances of the inertia and half-heartedness that characterise India’s engagement with the region India’s agreements with Asean offer less market access and cover fewer issues than Asean’s agreements with other countries in the region An inherently defensive approach to trade negotiation makes the concluded agreements counterproductive India refrained from yielding as much market access as was demanded in the goods trade negotiations The impression stuck and Asean was less generous when it came to services India’s trade negotiations with Southeast Asia never took into account structural realities Pushing manufactured exports into Asean markets requires Indian producers to be able to import cheap inputs from the region But protective demands from domestic producers did not let that happen As a result exports have hardly flourished through the Asean FTA The services FTA with Asean has been concluded but is yet to come into force But if history is anything to go by optimism is not warranted India’s biggest thrust in all service sector negotiations is to get deeper market access for its professionals The Asean negotiations have not been an exception The problem is that while bilateral trade agreements might formalise reciprocal access actual movement of professionals is much more difficult to achieve Several roadblocks impede such movement The most important among these is mutual recognition of qualifications Mutual recognition agreements (MRAs) are essential for skilled people to be able to migrate Recognition needs to be agreed on by the certifying agencies from different countries But negotiating MRAs between different agencies is difficult because of protectionist pressures Allowing technical professionals from foreign countries to practise on home turf is an onerous challenge “Act East” means going beyond the facile language of trade agreements and sorting out ground-level issues like MRAs It is important to do this quickly and purposefully Otherwise India’s economic engagement with Asean will remain below its potential The writer is senior research fellow and research lead (trade and economics) at the Institute of South

first reaction that Hasan Ali heard as he walked in for his first-ever press conference a year ago following his Pakistan Super League (PSL) debut It only got worse from there though Most of the questions that followed were loosely based on the same theme of “who are you” and “what are you doing here” as the youngster shifted gingerly on his chair and mumbled monosyllabic responses It had been a rather emotional day for Ali Earlier that afternoon Mohammad Akram former Pakistan fast bowler and coach of Peshawar Zalmi- Ali’s PSL franchise-had informed his protégé about being picked in the playing XI As he recalls now there was also a stirring lecture “I told him ‘This is not your place Your place is in the national team Your PSL debut might be your first game at such a big level But you should consider this only as a club game and think you’re made for bigger things’” Akram tells The Indian Express Ali took only a solitary wicket in that first match before having to deal with the baptism by fire by the Pakistani media post it In only a couple of months Ali was at Dublin donning national colours in an ODI against Ireland and making his mentor’s prediction come true By then the whole of Pakistan knew who the wiry youngster was their latest pace sensation And his name and reputation only kept rising as the year went on No bowler has taken more ODI wickets 38 of them than Ali since he made his debut And at the Champions Trophy he’s duly announced himself to the cricket world with three-wicket hauls—and big wickets at that—in three straight matches against South Africa Sri Lanka and England to lead his team into the final on Sunday He also presently sits clearly on top as the leading wicket-taker of the tournament Ali is a misnomer of sorts when you think of Pakistani fast bowlers The archetypal Pakistani fast bowler was always someone blessed with broad Herculean shoulders like say a Shoaib Akhtar height like Wasim Akram or Mohammad Irfan though he’s more a freak or a lithe muscular frame like a Waqar Younis or Aaqib Javed Hasan Ali is a misnomer of sorts when you think of Pakistani fast bowlers (Source: AP) All in the wrists Ali unfortunately possesses none of those physical traits And it’s not surprising when you hear Akram say that many around him were astonished when he picked Ali up from an emerging camp and began investing time and energy in him like he was the next big thing You can see why on the basis of the damage he’s caused with the ball Though he’s known for his variations he’s also shown the ability to generate deceptive pace and get the ball to move off the surface on occasions Akram puts it all down to Ali’s wrist position which he can’t stop gushing about “Whoever said I was crazy to invest in him I told them that I can see that spark and the wrist position I’m looking for For me he’s a bit like Dale Steyn or Vernon Philander He can hold his wrist position They haven’t used him much with the new-ball but I think he can become a very good new-ball bowler for Pakistan And he already has the ability to reverse swing the ball” he says “He generates pace and moves the ball because of that wrist position and high-arm action You don’t always have to be as tall as Mohammad Irfan or Joel Garner” he quips It was this wrist position that caught Akram’s eye in the first place and convinced him to pick Ali as one of the two emerging players for his franchise for the PSL last year But the former Pakistan bowling coach realized that the youngster wasn’t a finished product yet and decided to test him The results only further testified Akram’s gut-feel and he wasn’t the only member of the Zalmi camp who was impressed “I put him under pressure in trial matches and we had hitters like Darren Sammy and Shahid Afridi I did that with him But he came through all those challenges really well without losing his wrist position What I saw was that his head also remains very still which is why he’s so consistent with his yorkers because He never strayed once” says Akram Afridi’s appraisal It turns out it was Afridi who told Akram that it was time for Ali to get the nod and that it was Zalmi’s chance to provide a potential superstar for Pakistan The time with Zalmi turned Ali’s life around off the field too Hailing from the tiny town of Ludhay Wala on the outskirts of Gujranwala Ali didn’t quite have the facilities to hone his skills It was his elder brother Ataur Rehman who was the first to spot his talent and rallied the people of their hometown to support Ali by developing basic facilities But at Zalmi Ali has not only gotten an opportunity to rub shoulders with the who’s who of the cricket world he’s also got a chance to succeed in life away from the cricket “We pay them a stipend or have them on monthly wages We also support and encourage their education and Ali is one of our brightest students He’s a great listener and constantly in search of new ideas and skills You can’t keep him quiet in the dressing-room when he’s around the senior players and it shows in his performances on and off the field” says Akram Ali unfortunately didn’t make a great first impression against India earlier in the tournament dropping a crucial catch of Yuvraj Singh and also going for plenty of runs later in the innings He’ll get a second chance now to set the record straight and
