consensus Every now and then there is a new announcement that a comprehensive bill is round the corner In the meantimefoodgrain rots and hunger remains unabated Uncertainty surrounds even the existing unsatisfactory arrangements Sowhat are the key issues that need to be resolved First and foremostthe scope of the bill Should this only cover those who are below poverty line (BPL) or should it also cover the above poverty line (APL) families After allthe right to food is the universal right of every citizen It is true that those who are BPLwho are on the edge of hungermust be our overriding priority But how can we call something a right if everyone does not have it Secondwhat is the methodology which should be used to define BPL Should this only be based on minimum calorific intake without regard to nutritional efficiencies It is well-recognised that unless the entitlement covers clean drinking watersanitationhygiene and primary healthcarealong with deficiencies of micro nutrientsthe absorptive capacity for food would be seriously compromised So the question iswhat do we want to achieve from the Food Security Bill After allit must enable every childwoman and man to have an opportunity for a healthy and productive life beyond mere access to calories required for existence Thereforethe food security legislation should aim at overcoming the challenges of food security without losing sight of the broad definition and components of food security that have come to be accepted across the world The interrelation between food and social security cannot be ignored and any effort of guaranteeing one without the rest will render food security ineffective Thirdeven in the traditional sense in which poverty has been imperfectly definedthere are widely varying estimates of the number of poor people As far as the number of BPL families are concernedthe Wadhwa committee estimates the number to be 20 crorethe state governments estimate the number as 105 crorethe Tendulkar committee put it as 95 croreArjun Sengupta committee 20 croreNC Saxena 125 crore and the Planning Commission puts the figure at 7 crore Recentlyof coursethe Planning Commission is inclined to accept the Tendulkar committee report which is half of the number suggested by the Wadhwa committee and is slightly below the state government estimates Of coursethe financial implications vary dramatically from Rs 82000 crore under the Wadhwa committee to Rs 18000 crore under the Tendulkar committeeover and above the present allocations for subsidies Until recentlypoverty was estimated in India by measuring calorie intakethough the Tendulkar committee moved away from that to a broader definition Methodology for the computation of poverty needs to be restructured by taking into account the new multi-dimensional approach of estimating poverty Fourthrelated to the above is the issue of whether the entitlement should be 25 kg or 35 kg of foodgrain a month There could also be a differentiated approach in which only those in the BPL category receive 35 kgothers like APL families receive the lower entitlement of 25 kg only Priceno doubteveryone has assumedshould be Rs 3 per kg Fiftha major unresolved issue is the distribution modality since the bill will entail a massive increase in the quantum of foodgrain Reliance on the public distribution system alone may prove inadequate Everyone is familiar with the inherent leakages in the existing PDS in terms of quality of foodgrainbogus ration cardshoardingprofiteering and multiple ways of denying food to the powerless and disadvantaged Of courseif the current PDS is to be continuedit will also entail enormous problems of food procurementstoragetransportation and all the other attendant evils we are fully familiar with So should we not think of more innovative ways of administering food subsidy Two types of schemes are being increasingly mentioned The first is a coupon system in which the intended beneficiary receives a food coupon which carries money value and gives him the option to buy foodgrain from any shop which gives him satisfaction This creates competition between different outlets and will certainly improve the quality and enlarge consumer choiceminimise misuse and improve productivity There is the second approachthat isdirect cash transfer by opening a bank account in the name of the intended beneficiary and transferring the money directly to the bank account Countries like Brazilwhich have experimented with conditional cash transferhave achieved success in administering such schemes more efficiently Sixthproduction and livelihood of food producersfrom the household to the national levelconstitute the core element of food security You cannot provide food to people if you do not first ensure that food is produced in adequate quantities And to ensure adequate food productionthe livelihood of food producers must be ensured With continuing high growth in population and the stagnant area under foodgrain productionthe right to food can only be ensured with a sustained growth in productivity levelsincreased food procurement and by containing the colossal wastage of food Enacting a Food Security Act cannot be postponed What kind of superpower can India hope to be if it cannot address the basic issue of starvation and hunger We cannot

the worst bloodshed of its kind in Egypt’s modern history – highlighted the threat militant groups pose in the most populous Arab country After four years of battling Islamic State in the Sinai where the group has killed hundreds of soldiers and police authorities still face an enemy with growing ambitions in Egypt despite its defeats in Iraq Syria and Libya Carrying the black flag of Islamic State the assailants arrived in off-road vehicles before opening fire on the cream-coloured Al Rawdah mosque in Bir al-Abed leaving its carpets stained with blood officials and witnesses said People scrambled to escape as gunmen opened fire at worshippers including dozens of children By the time the shooting stopped many of the village’s men were lifeless No group has claimed responsibility ATTACK RATTLES EGYPTIANS Egyptians were stunned because the attack was directed at a mosque – a rarity in the country’s history of Islamist insurgencies The possibility that ultra-hardline Islamists are shifting tactics and picking new targets is worrying for Egypt where governments have struggled to contain groups far less brazen than Islamic State Egyptian leaders have adopted a zero-tolerance policy with air strikes raids on militant hideouts and long prison sentences President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has once again threatened to crush the militants “The armed forces and the police will avenge our martyrs and restore security and stability with the utmost force in the coming period” he said after Friday’s carnage Sisi has called for a comprehensive campaign to counter what he describes as the existential threat of radical jihadism deploying moderate clerics to promote moderate Islam for instance He is expected to run for a second term early next year Even with a convincing win he will face pressure to deliver on promises of stability especially if attacks like that on Al Rawdah persist For Islamic State the village was a target because of its ties to Sufism a mystical form of Islam that hardline Islamist groups consider heretical Some villagers recalled how these threats were made about a year ago in an Islamic State internet publication In a December 2016 issue of al-Nabaa one of the group’s religious leaders left little doubt that Sufis would be targeted It mentioned Al Rawdah directly “Our primary focus lies in the war against polytheism and apostasy and of those Sufism sorcery and divination” he said More threats were made in early 2017 SUFIS CONDEMNED FOR BELIEFS In March Islamic State’s branch in the Sinai posted a video of its religious police forcing a group of Sufis to renounce their beliefs under threat of death It showed what it said were militants beheading two elderly Sufi men in the desert after they were found guilty of witchcraft and sorcery Egypt has about 15 million Sufis and their shrines and saints appear in villages across the country Ultra-conservative Salafists abhor Sufi practices and some have in the past threatened to smash their symbols with hammers and iron bars Five police and army sources said there was no recent specific threat against Sufis in Al Rawdah Friday’s attack began in the early afternoon The mosque’s imam said he had just stepped onto the podium for his sermon when gunfire erupted and worshippers struggled to escape “I found people piled on top of each other and they kept firing at anyone” imam Mohamed Abdel Fattah told Reuters from his hospital bed in Sharqiya city “They fired at anyone who breathed” Ramadan Salama 26 said all he remembers before ending up in hospital was gunmen entering the mosque during the sermon and spraying worshippers with gunfire As Egyptian security forces try to reassure an anxious public they face yet another dangerous enemy A new group with

police in the Western desert far from northern Sinai Security sources said dozens of police officers and conscripts were killed The government said 16 police and conscripts died Security sources said the heavy weapons and tactics employed indicated ties to Islamic State or more likely an al Qaeda brigade led by Hesham al-Ashmawy a former Egyptian special forces officer turned jihadist For now
