Exchange moderated by Senior Assistant Editor Maneesh Chhibbersenior Congress leader and Law Minister Salman Khurshid speaks about losing the UP electionsthe minority quota controversy and Presidential elections SALMAN KHURSHID: There are two important things someone in my position should be saying to you Onethat our government is battered and badgered by people who think we are doing very badly On our third anniversary of coming to power (in May)we will give you material that is staggering about the performance of our government There is no paralysis In factthere is a lot of energy in what the government is doing I admit things have gone wrong but not things we have deliberately ruined We take 100 per cent responsibility for everything Involuntarilyand beyond our controlsome things have gone wrongthey have to be put right and they are being put right We need to have an institutional dialogue with all important institutions in our country The media is one such institution I have to have a dialogue with the judiciary Similarlywe must have a dialogue with the Opposition We are a coalition government of many partiesand we must reach out to every party Dialogue is not a symptom of weakness or of confusiondialogue is not a symptom of surrender You should be able to dialogue with anybodyeven with the forces of extreme nature I am not calling them extremistsMaoistsor communalistsetc The moment you label somebody somethingyour dialogue collapses As Minister of Minority Affairs and Lawthere are specific areas of concern Minority Affairs is a minor ministry with a major task The ministrys job is of course for the minoritiesbut also for the majority of our country We have to be able to initiate a dialogue between the minority and majority And I say with great sadness that the assumed champions of the minorities todayin the name of welfare of the minoritiesare actually hurting that dialogue Maneesh Chhibber: Till a few years agoyou were the liberal face of the Congress but during the UP electionswe saw Salman Khurshid talking about minority quota etc Did electoral politics get to you SALMAN KHURSHID: Was that my position or was that the position of my government Salman Khurshid cant give four-and-a-half per cent to anybodythe Cabinet did Sachar Committee and Ranganath Mishraone a former chief justice of the Delhi High Courtone a former Chief Justice of Indiarecommended four-and-a-half per cent I wish somebody had said SalmanMishra and Sachar are wrong Sachar talked of 10 per centRanganath Mishra of 15 per centMulayam Singh Yadav was talking of 18 per cent minority quota And four-and-a-half per cent is for the minoritiesnot for Muslims alone What is four-and-half per cent today Will it give people the right to recruitmentthe right to admission in universities If you want to shoot the messengeryou will end up shooting the message I was only the messengera messenger of social justice For five yearsmy government and my party were criticised for not implementing this quota My announcement was my governments decision Should I have kept my governments decision under wraps Swaraj Thapa: Subsequentlyyou apologised to the Election Commission for it SALMAN KHURSHID: The word apology may not be there but I wont argue Why did nobody question Mayawati when she said in Parliament that reservations in promotions have been stopped by the court and Parliament must ensure that the courts decision is overturned She questioned the decision of the Supreme Court I was only endorsing a decision of the Supreme Court Rakesh Sinha: You underlined the need for dialoguebut we dont see that degree of engagement between the government and the Opposition SALMAN KHURSHID: I concede that the level of dialogue that I aspire to is missing Maybe our parliamentary structure does not encourage or allow for the kind of dialogue that is necessary in the complex situations of todaybut we want dialogue We have had dialoguewe need more Vandita Mishra: As a Congressman and as Law Ministerwhat is your reaction to the media regulation bill sought to be moved by your party MPMeenakshi Natarajan SALMAN KHURSHID: My view is the same as the one articulated by Ambika Soni It is not the position of everybody in the governmentbut we have to go along with her Her position is that we should go an extra mile in promoting self-regulation in media We should not impose regulation There is an exception herereporting court proceedings That is a matter for the judiciary We dont think (regulation) is going to be useful But we have the concept of private members bills to highlight their concerns in Parliament which encourages engagement and debate To say Meenakshi Natarajan doesnt have the right to do this is a bit unfair Right nowit is only a trigger for a debatenot a trigger for a decision But I am surprised when the media discourages open debate For the media to say that she has no right to say this surprises meI dont want to use the word hypocrisy Nobody has ever said paid media is wrong People have only said that paid media during elections is wrong Strangethat there are two Indias: one during electionsthe other outside elections Vandita Mishra: This bill has extremely draconian provisions by a Congress MP who is considered to be close to the heir apparent Is that not cause for worry SALMAN KHURSHID: No I have never known a private bill to come in on a Friday afternoon having shaken up this country Those bills all become part of a feed for future legislation Dilip Bobb: You said there is no policy paralysisyou are going full steam ahead with all your programmes and reforms But all your major programmes are being stymied by your own allies SALMAN KHURSHID: I didnt say we are going ahead with reforms Some reforms are possible without legislationothers are only possible with legislation With the legislation-based reformsthe time line has been stretchedundoubtedly But to say that means we are paralyticis not fair A lot of things are happening Figures for tourismreduced violenceriotsfor social NREGAjobsskills developmentschool enrollment are good If somebody says these happen without the governmentthen I have no answer There could be much more happening We have not met the aspired timeline on some legislation But has this brought India to a grinding halt Is the India story over I am not prepared to accept it This yearwe are the second fastest growing economy of the world after China Coomi Kapoor: Why didnt you manage to get the minority vote in UP or in Mumbai Municipal Corporation elections SALMAN KHURSHID: We won in Latur and many other places which have huge chunks of Muslims We didnt win Mumbai We have not won Delhi But we lost Delhi two years before Sheila Dikshit won for the third time The largest vote we got in UP was the minority vote We have got more minority votes than we have got other votes because there are more minority votes to give in UP19 per cent If you askdid you get enough to winthe answer is no But if you askhow did you do compared to last timewe got two per cent more Compared to the last parliamentary electionswe have got four per cent less People say polarisation took place Then why did BJP get fewer votes There is no comfort in these figures We have to cross the 20 per cent barrier in UP if we are to become relevant and for that we have to work very hard SHRUTI SRIVASTAVA: Do you think the proposed retrospective amendment in the Finance Bill has the potential to drive away foreign investors SALMAN KHURSHID: I have seen this years figures and they are very encouraging on Foreign Direct Investment There are some serious concerns that the Finance Minister has on trying to make India a tax haven He believes that all other countries which also invite investmenthave looked through provisions that India unfortunately did not have Maybe in our over-enthusiasm to get investmentwe overlooked such provisions We are looking at optionsso lets see Amitabh Sinha: What is your personal analysis of the UP election results SALMAN KHURSHID: The results shattered me because we thought we could make a breakthrough We had everything going that you need in an election to win it What happened Many of the reasons media writes about are not the reasons I say that with confidence I have to fight an election in two years time so it would be stupid of me if I didnt open my eyes and ears to the reasons I dont think the Samajwadi Party knows why it won If the winner doesnt know why it has wonthe losers are highly unlikely to know why they have lost Muzamil Jaleel: Do you think the way the government dealt with the General V K Singh affair was right SALMAN KHURSHID: On the Gen VK Singh issueI feel very sad You ask me could the government have done a better jobI askcould the General have done a better job He is a good Generala respected Generala very popular General Sometimes in lifeyou just have a hard case and no matter what you doyou cant get it right It is a very sad episode and I hope and pray we have seen the end of it The armythe Generalsin the popular perception are the most respected That folklore of our country must remain intact Muzamil Jaleel: The Army has been very vocal about AFSPA (Armed Forces Special Powers Act) More and more army officers are becoming vocal on issues which should have been within the domain of the political administration SALMAN KHURSHID: The traditional attitude towards the military is changing in the country The world overthe military is not what it used to be 30 years ago They also want to ask questions They also want to participate in the debate Muzamil Jaleel: This is the first time that the governments decision to select the new chief of the army is being questioned on communal terms SALMAN KHURSHID: There are a lot of things that have happened for the first time I heard that the Law Minister was reprimanded for the first time (by Election Commission) Soyou live with it For the sake of dialoguefor the sake of the countryyou dont reply to some reprimands D K Singh: Do you think some kind of Kamaraj plan can revitalise Congress SALMAN KHURSHID: I dont think we should talk about something that was specific to a particular moment in history Our leaders will look at what is the need of the hour D K Singh: Your senior colleague Saifuddin Soz says Rahul Gandhi should play a larger role in the party SALMAN KHURSHID: Thats a common feeling among Congress leaders But ultimately we have to wait for him to take a call Swaraj Thapa: With the presidential elections coming updo you think its time for changes in Congress SALMAN KHURSHID: There is no specific plan or intent that I know of My common sense tells me that every few years you need to do some introspection and take some steps that would address the challenges of the future Swaraj Thapa: Is Mr Pranab Mukherjee a candidate for President SALMAN KHURSHID: He is one of our most experienced people He is our Rahul Dravidthe Wall On every issuein every challengehe stands solid for the party and for the government We owe a lot to him And he is greatly respected on both sides of the divide in Parliament So its comforting to have him in the party and in the government Dilip Bobb: On Bofors and the handling of itdont you think that there are a lot of unanswered questions SALMAN KHURSHID: Of course there are There are a lot of questions on Partition too What are scholars for Let them write books But when books get written on World War II or on the Holocaustthe British Parliament and German Parliament dont come to a standstill Muzamil Jaleel: Bofors is an efficient gunthere was never any question on that SALMAN KHURSHID: When was the first time anybody admitted that Bofors was a good gun During the Kargil conflict10 years after the controversy erupted For ten years that knowledge was kept from the country because if you say its a good gunbut its being handled by bad peopleit doesnt make a story There is no point trying to recreate a story that is gone and over and finished and dead Courts in three countries have examined the allegations and have said there is nothing in it Do we trust the Supreme CourtDelhi High Courtthe Malaysian court The Argentinian court Rakesh Sinha: Did Kaushik Basus statement on the lack of economic reforms till 2014 give the government the jitters SALMAN KHURSHID: I dont think so His statement was projected with a wrong nuance He just stated the fact And that fact was suggested as the governments admission of defeatthe governments intention of not doing anything That was not it India didnt come to a halt because for 40 years we couldnt pass Lokpal Bill So legislation does run into trouble when
