the finals as an independent nation in 2010 World Cup (Reuters Photo) Top News Serbia qualified for the 2018 World Cup after a 74th-minute goal by substitute Aleksandar Prijovic gave them a 1-0 home win over Georgia on Monday and enabled them to finish top of Europe’s Group D with 21 points from 10 games It is the second time Serbia have reached the finals as an independent nation having been knocked in the group stages of the 2010 tournament in South Africa and then missing the next three major soccer events Prijovic grabbed the winner with a fine finish to delight anxious home fans in Red Star’s Rajko Mitic stadium who lit flares to celebrate after he scored while fireworks were set off by the organisers after the final whistle “Thank you very much for your fantastic support and we look forward to playing for you in Russia” Serbia’s captain Branislav Ivanovic said in an on-pitch address to the crowd Serbia piled on the pressure from the offset but Georgia looked more likely to score in the first half With the home side looking nervy and disjointed the Georgians came close in the 17th minute when midfielder Valerian Gvilia forced a good save from Serbia keeper Vladimir Stojkovic The Serbians carved out their first chance in the 39th minute when visiting keeper Giorgi Makaridze blocked Dusan Tadic’s shot from a tight angle Jeered off by their supporters at halftime Serbia came out with renewed purpose after the break and defensive midfielder Nemanja Gudelj fired narrowly over the bar in the 48th minute Shortly afterwards striker Aleksandar Mitrovic saw his close-range header superbly saved by Makaridze and then sliced another wide of the far post as the home side threw men forward Ivanovic headed inches wide after a corner the 67th minute and Nemanja Matic had a shot cleared off the line moments later as Serbia besieged the Georgian goal with a flurry of crosses from either flank Prijovic finally broke the deadlock with a composed close-range finish after strike partner Mitrovic found him with a fine low cross following Ivanovic’s darting run through the middle Serbia held on comfortably in the closing stages knowing that they were safely through as Ireland won 1-0 at Wales to seal second place in Group D and book a playoff berth For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Amitabha Pande | Published: June 17 2016 12:02 am Prime Minister Narendra Modi Top News While sounding triumphant is Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s distinctive style of presentation one wonders why he needed such a massive publicity overdrive merely on completing two years of an assured five-year term Naturally there have been highs and lows but surely the highs are not spectacular enough to justify orchestrated cheerleading The big assembly elections are still many months away Whipping the converted into a frenzy of reverence serves little purpose and those disenchanted are unlikely to get re-enchanted The “liberals” continue to moan “I told you so” and the “concerned” continue to look grim So why all this chest thumping self-congratulatory frenzy First I suspect the government is nervous Having raised expectations to a fever pitch it knows it has not quite been able to deliver Inspirational slogans catchy one-liners and fierce personal energy cannot cover the yawning gap between intent and fulfilment Some slogans such as “minimum government maximum governance” have been forgotten or quietly buried Quite obviously the government senses discontent in its middle-class support base but refuses to own up to it Like all governments who avoid adversarial critiques this government too naively concludes that waning enthusiasm is due to a failure in trumpeting its achievements High decibel publicity is both a means to cover up nervousness and provide the bhakt army with ammunition to counter criticism Second reflect on Modi’s psychology He seems to find it difficult to function without constant public adulation from mass audiences needing to wow them with mesmeric oratory and convince them of the “historic” role that destiny requires him to play Doing it often enough seems to quieten a potentially restive electorate and reinforces his own sense of the greatness Third is the classic BJP “good cop/bad cop” act Each time the toxic RSS agenda seems to gain ground and diminish the PM’s vikas and good governance agenda he and his ministers have to play the good cop with renewed vigour to maintain balance Particularly so because the international image of a modernist messiah who is transforming a plodding blundering leviathan into a muscle toned galloping stallion cannot be allowed to suffer The big things that are happening under the great helmsman need constant iteration Meanwhile the Hindutva pot must be kept bubbling so that whenever the government seems to be forgetting the core Sangh Parivar agenda the fires can be stoked The biggest danger of such PR exercises is that soon the government starts believing its own hype By welcoming flattery and cultivating sycophancy it rejects critical scrutiny as being partisan stops looking at reforming systems institutions and governance processes India Inc goes overboard in providing it uncritical approbation and international tycoons seem to be forming a queue to get onto the India bandwagon Appearance and make-believe become real while reality withdraws finding itself scorned Soon this euphoria will wane Then I foresee a flurry of senseless activity — a cabinet and bureaucratic reshuffle followed by an overweening PMO going into an overdrive — holding meetings to remove bottlenecks chasing approvals demanding power-point presentations and generally making life hell for those entrusted with implementation: Activities that have little impact on outputs and outcomes The pity is that the opportunity for a genuine critical review at this stage could and should have done the following One reduce the number of ministries from over 50 to 20 or less Two induct 20 strong experienced cabinet ministers each capable of exercising independent political authority to head each of the regrouped ministries; each ministry should be given a clear remit an adequate budget and a secretary with a secure three-year term Three instead of making the PMO into an obtrusive big brother ministries should be empowered administratively and financially by using smart budgeting tools Budgets should be linked to committed outcomes and deliverables and then ministries should be held accountable The focus should be shifted from exercising controls after budgets have been approved to rigorous critical scrutiny before a budget is approved and then devolving and delegating powers in a way that delivering budgeted outcomes is a sacrosanct contractual responsibility These are simple tried and tested techniques every good CEO knows about Four walk the talk on federalism and devolution We almost believed the PM when he got rid of the Planning Commission But all we got was a bigger share of revenues to the states courtesy the 14th Finance Commission and a non-institution called the Niti Aayog However a centralising mindset still dominates and states local governments and grassroots organisations continue to be treated as agents rather than as partners in a collective collaborative endeavour The potential of using a platform like the Inter-State Council for changing all this remains unrealised Five start a process of listening to contrary points of view be it the responsible and mature dissenters or the media and give legitimacy to two-way interactions Six the PM should speak out clearly and forcefully against the bigotry of his partymen including his own ministers and use the PM’s prerogative to get rid of the bigoted cultural Neanderthals in his team Not doing so only confirms that he is actually the fountainhead of such thinking and also brings out the striking contrast between the PM’s international persona and his domestic one This contrast is not going unnoticed in the investor community and murmurs now can grow into a roar anytime Three years to go There is still
