Baksa A student wing floated by one of these groups has also been making efforts to enroll students in Guwahati A cause of worry for the agencies is the involvement of these groups with radical Muslim leaders and their access to huge funds from West Asia Pallab Bhattacharya additional director general of Assam Police in charge of the Special Branch said that the NRC has offered scope to many

(Students Islamic Orgnisation) at the Delhi press club is an example as is the raising of the NRC issue at the level of the United Nations (UN)” he said Wild guesses are being made about the number of migrants who would be identified after the completion of the NRC However various groups espousing the causes of Hindu and Muslim migrants have already begun to oppose the exercise of identifying foreign nationals claiming that genuine citizens are being harassed and victimised It is possible that some radical groups may exploit disaffection among the migrants after the final list is declared On 20 June News18 Assam even reported that Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) had activated sleeper cells in Assam for causing disturbances after the NRC is completed The report also referred to previous instances when functionaries of the agency were apprehended in the state Meanwhile additional battalions of paramilitary forces have been rushed to the state to deal with the post-NRC situation Areas in central and western Assam have been also been identified where companies would be deployed to assist the state police The final draft of the NRC which was supposed to have been published on 30 June has been postponed due to floods Presence of radical Islamist outfits in Assam Radical Islamist groups have intermittently surfaced in Assam enlisted cadres for a while but fizzled out within a few years The earliest activities of these organisations can be traced to the mid-1990s in the aftermath of the Babri Masjid demolition when outfits like the Muslim United Liberation Front of Assam (MULTA) emerged with the goal to safeguard the interests of the community More groups surfaced in the early 2000s but they appear to have been short-lived A relief camp in Darrang after riots in 2008 Image: Rajeev Bhattacharya Around 500 militants belonging to Muslim Fundamentalist Organisations (MFOs) either surrendered or were apprehended in Assam and Manipur between 1999 and 2004 They were mostly cadres belonging to MULTA Harkat-ul-Mujahideen and People’s United Liberation Front (of Manipur) Pakistan’s ISI has also been making efforts to develop a network in Assam either with ethnic rebel groups or Muslim communities A statement issued on 6 April 2000 by the then chief minister Prafulla Kumar Mahanta in the Assam Assembly disclosed significant details about the agency’s strategy in the region which also includes creating new groups along communal lines supply of explosives and weapons sabotage and communal tension between Hindus and Muslims Evidence of the Jamaatul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB)’s presence in Assam surfaced three years ago following the blast at Burdwan in West Bengal in 2014 which killed two persons The probe into the incident revealed that one Bura Bhai who was the head of a martial arts institute at Chirang had allegedly been providing arms training to youth associated with the JMB module More than 20 activists have been arrested by the police in Assam With the Awami League led government in Bangladesh launching a severe crackdown against fundamentalist and terror groups some activists of JMB and other Islamist organisations are believed to have taken refuge in parts of India including Assam and West Bengal Can these groups pose a security threat in Assam A long list of radical Islamist outfits that had supposedly taken birth in Assam in the past two-and-a-half decades finds mention in some books and reports by intelligence agencies Apparently the names of some organisations (like Independent Liberation Army of Assam) are obscure and have never been heard of which casts serious doubts about the authenticity of these accounts Officials have also given statements on some occasions on the presence of Lashkar-e-Taiba and Kashmiri rebel groups in Assam These reports notwithstanding it is reliably learnt that top functionaries of MULTA had landed in Bangladesh to network with similar groups and agencies with the goal to procure weapons and funds Some over-ground militants from the ethnic groups who had been based in Bangladesh also believe that small groups of MFOs from Assam availed training in the Af-Pak region in the same manner as they were themselves trained by ISI instructors But these MFO activists seem to have charted a path very different from the ethnic rebel outfits Full scale operations by security forces have never been mounted so far against any MFO in Assam Nor have they ever resorted to attacks or ambushes on the security forces Some officials do not rule out the possibility of the inaccessible char (riverine) areas in the state being used by them for indoctrination and recruitment of cadres since the police lacks an effective presence in these areas Sensing the danger the state government has initiated a survey of 829 such villages of a total of 2251 along the Brahmaputra river which are concentrated in the central and western zones of Assam A proposal has been sent to the Centre for satellite imageries and augmenting the strength of the river police wing Former police chief Mukesh Sahay had himself camped for several days near a char last year to supervise an operation Another official who has been keeping a tab on the activities of MFOs drew a parallel between their strategy and that of the CPI(Maoist) in central India “They are committed to long-term goals and they live among the people In the absence of weapons a viable alternative is mass support MFOs are attempting to replicate strategies which have been observed in other states and countries" In early April Nigeria achieved an amazing feat Overnight its economy swelled by 89% Just like that The West African giant has been posting pretty impressive growth rates recently But it wasnt fresh investment surging consumer spending or high oil prices that generated the GDP windfall Nigeria can thank its statisticians Nigerias bookkeepers made a few changes to how they calculate GDP updating the base year for determining prices and improving data collection And voila GDP almost doubles with a few clicks on a spreadsheet This isnt an economic magic trick or some kind of corrupt shell game Economists have more confidence in the new figure than the old Nigeria had not been refreshing the way it measures GDP as it should have been Confused yet Global financial markets thrive upon data Every new figure or percentage gets analyzed reanalyzed debated discussed dissected and analyzed some more The reality though is that many important economic statistics arent as hard and fast as we tend to treat them to the point where we have to wonder how much use they are to understanding the world economy Take a look for instance at China Much praise (or concern depending on where you sit) has been lavished on Chinas rapid ascent But the Chinese data we use is riddled with question marks Its GDP figures for instance just dont add up A recent report from Bank of America Merrill Lynch commented that the sum of the GDPs of Chinas provinces doesnt match national GDP though the investment bank also noted that the discrepancy has narrowed recently "perhaps due to less data rigging" China’s current trade data is also screwed up because companies were caught last year fabricating exports as a way to evade the countrys capital controls Perhaps we should take the advice of Chinas Premier the No 2 policymaker in the nation who earlier in his career said Chinese GDP figures are "man-made" and "for reference only” Nevertheless these statistics are taken as official Then they are put through another round of numerical aerobics Headlines turned heads in April when new figures from a World Bank report estimated that Chinas economy was much larger than originally thought The data suggested that China would overtake the US as the worlds No 1 economy as early as this year much more quickly than anticipated This prompted all sorts of talk about the decline of the West and a new world order led by China But again we find ourselves in a statistical conundrum To compare GDPs from country to country the figures are usually converted from their national currencies into US dollars using exchange rates But some analysts believe that this method is flawed Exchange rates the thinking goes fail to properly measure GDP since they fluctuate and cant fully account for different prices in varied countries So the International Comparison Program coordinated by the World Bank offered an alternative using "purchasing-power parity" (PPP) which adjusts for the prices of goods and services across economies The result: Chinas GDP practically doubles from $73 trillion in 2011 using exchange rates to $135 trillion based on PPP Hows that for different (Chinas economy is far from the only one inflated in this way Indias tripled by the ICPs calculations to nearly $58 trillion) Which number is right Derek Scissors of the American Enterprise Institute blasted the ICP saying the PPP method "makes no sense" PPP comparisons were devised to better understand personal incomes and consumption and using them to compare economic size "stretches the idea of PPP beyond the breaking point" Instead Scissors recommends comparing economies not on GDP at all but on a measure of national wealth Obviously the experts dont agree on which statistics to believe That would be of purely academic interest if data weren’t taken so seriously Economists and investors make all sorts of choices based on statistics that can change radically depending on who is doing the calculating It isn’t just GDP data that suffers in this way US financial markets gyrate wildly based on jobs data released by business-services firm ADP since it is widely seen as an indicator for the official report from the US government released at a later date Yet ADP has proved a poor forecaster even after an overhaul of its methodology inspiring one economist to call the report "a joke" Policymakers are also stuck trying to make decisions based on conflicting data William Galston once an adviser to President Bill Clinton recently argued for action to ensure workers are properly rewarded for their increased efficiency Based on the stats he was using workers were producing more but wages havent been rising to properly compensate them for that extra contribution and that was widening inequality and creating a major economic headache "For the sake of economic growth social mobility and political stability we must think more boldly about reforging the connection between compensation and productivity" he wrote That led the Cato Institute to condemn Galston for employing "statistical fog" to promote "the worst economic policy idea of the past 40 years" Cato argued that data upon which Galston based his argument was faulty and by using supposedly superior methods the imagined gap between wages and productivity vanishes What can we do Economic statistics are what they are imperfect numbers based on imperfect data and twisted further by contending methods of analysis Just keep that in mind next time you dip into a database Contact us at

exchange for donating to the nonprofit Save the Children See the original Instagram below Write to Cady Lang at [email protected] states have demanded the immediate review of the revenue sharing formula in favour of states and local government areas The zone said such decision was a faster approach to socio economic development of the country since the second and third tiers of governments were closer to the people In addition they advocated for ‘High Population Density’ to become a major determinant of the federal revenue sharing formula in the proposed new revenue allocation formula instead of the current policy of ‘Land Mass’ The South-East zone took this position at the public hearing organized for the people of the zone by the Revenue Mobilization and Fiscal Commission at the Nike Lake Resort Enugu on Thursday Although none of the five governors in the zone showed up during the hearing their representatives argued that the states and council areas were better positioned to satisfy the various socio infrastructural needs of the communities rather than the federal government The Enugu state government in its presentation tabled by Dr Dan Onyishi of the state economic commission stressed that the state was finding it very difficult to impact infrastructural development in several nooks and crannies of the state having understudied their economic deprivations since the present administration came on board in 2007 He said due to poor revenue accruing from the federal government and poor internally generated revenue IGR the state government was handicapped in achieving those results He said federal government had also compounded matters for the state by refusing to refund over seven billion naira the state spent on rehabilitation of over 160 kilometers of federal government roads in the state He argued that the states and local government councils are better placed to monitor the extent of project execution and offer effective security services on them rather than the bogus and most often bogus projects awarded by the federal government across the comunities which were most times left uncompleted or balkanised Corroborating the above view the Abia State government’s representative advocated for the federal governments allocation to be reduced from 52 percent to 45 percent while that of the states should be increased from 27 percent to 32 percent to enable them effect more socio infrastructural development of the grass roots while the derivation funds for oil producing states should be increased from thirteen percent to twenty percent He lamented that even as Abia state government is listed among the Nine Oil producing states of the country the federal allocation accruing to the state was yet to reflect in that order as obtained with other oil producing states of the country Speaking to journalists the Chairman revenue mobilization allocation and fiscal commission Engineer Elias Mbam assured that it was the views of most Nigerians that will count in the proposed new revenue formula for the country He stated that “the significance of this exercise is to further give Nigerians another platform to express their views and submit memoranda on the review process” He added that the contributions made by the stake holders in the review process would help the commission in producing an acceptable revenue formula that would stand the test of times in the country The two day public hearing on the proposed new revenue sharing formula will end on September 27 The commission had already visited the North-West and the North central zones before coming to the South East zone Amber Rae Asleson who is 26 or 27 was charged Monday in Cass County District Court with one count of Class C felony domestic aggravated
