  • Hi Byju's IAS…first of all…I would like to Thank you people for doing Comprehensive Analysis of "The Hindu" everyday. I have a doubt. I read "The Hindu" Vijayawada Edition daily. Most of the days, 2-3 topics you discuss won't be present in my edition. Even today, Topics:3,4,5 were not found in Vijayawada Edition. Will that be a problem in long run during the preparation, as you say Questions might be asked in Prelims from those topics?

    Q-2
    The Assam agitation of 1979-85 took a violent turn and led to the creation of the ULFA( united liberation front of Assam).ULFA as an organisation demands for an independent state of Assam from the central government. With violent clashes and turbulence in the state, government has already banned the organisation under the UAPA act, 1967.
    The imposition of AFSPA legislation in the state led to various killings of members of the ULFA. The organisation is fuelled with the support of Pakistan and China. It also managed to get support from various outfits such as the NSCN(K), NDFB etc.
    The organisation suffered a loss in a major counter-insurgency operation by Indian security forces in Bhutan under the operation “All clear”.India further managed to bring down the outfit with the help from Bangladesh which handed over the leader of the outfit to India.
    The central government has succeeded by taking up the cease fire agreement with the ULFA. The leader of the outfit demands for rehabilitation of the Members who were killed in the insurgency operation. The demands of the organisation is not met till date and it has managed to develop a different element of previous ULFA under the name of “United liberation front of Assam- Independent.”
    The government should deal with this issue cautiously because the state of Assam can face a dual challenge of violence from the NRC and ULFA-I

    Q-1
    The Regional comprehensive economic partnership (RCEP) is a FTA agreement between ASEAN and 6 countries of the indo- Pacific region. It provides a platform for India to transform its trading relations in the indo-Pacific region because it ensures a common market and a level playing field for the member country.
    Potentiality of the RCEP deal:
    + remove both tariff/non-tariff barriers.
    + promote goods and services alongside with investments and people to people interaction.
    + set to become world’s largest economic powerhouse.
    + it will help India in achieving political and strategic interests in the indo-Pacific region.
    But, the RCEP also brings along with it the element of ‘give and take which can affect India’s economic interest and there is a high chance of clashes between trade unions and the government.
    Challenges for India:
    + IIP and PMI(52.1 in June)datas reveals weak manufacturing base in India.
    + it could straightaway flood cheap imports from China and ASEAN countries.
    +It will further widen India’s trade deficit with China, Japan, South Korea which are a manufacturing giants in the region.
    + Demand of strict enforcement of IP Laws, hygiene and sanitary standard.
    + there is a chance of due disadvantage tothe service sector of India which can affect the volume of India’s forex reserves.
    + It could affect the agriculture sector in general and well beings of farmers in particular.
    Indian industries already has experienced a major hit in the coconut and coffee sector when it signed a similar FTA with the ASEAN countries.
    India should refrain from joining the RCEP deal at the current stage because clearly India gets less advantage of this deal, but it should join in the near future in order to achieve its long term interest of a $5 trillion economy.
