The Center has military whereas States (Provinces) have police as sanctioned-coercion apparatus of Indian State. Hence, Federalism demands that only martial and human right matters belong to Union/Center and all civilian matters to States (Provinces). Unfortunately, the 2019 Parliament election in India is conspicuous by the absence of the discussion on martial/international matters. It is hoped that at-least new government at Center will handle the five international issues/problems of Kashmir, US-Iran conflict, Syria, etc. in NAME, Israel-Palestine, UN transformation, and one most important human-rights issue of poverty removal as given below:
1) As far as solving the chronic and gory Kashmir problem, it should be solved by plebiscite.
2) The current most burning international issue of Iran – US conflict [which is the most important issue for India due to India’s intimate friendship with both USA and Iran and India’s dependence on Iranian oil (on better terms) and Chabahar port] should be solved by India by offering its nukes for complete denuclearization. India should demand that nuclear ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction’ (WMDs) of all the nuclear powers (five permanent members of UN and India, Pakistan, Israel, North Korea, etc.) should be handed over to UN authorities for ultimate destruction and UN should ensure that no country is able to develop new nuclear WMDs.
3) The solution to the problem in Syria etc. in NAME region (where millions of people are bleeding and weeping profusely) is not rocket science and it can easily be solved by carrying out elections in Syria under supervision of ‘UN Election Commission’ (UNEC) under a secular constitution. India should offer personnel (military and civil in millions whatever needed) for ‘UN Peace Keeping Force’ (UNPKF) and for UNEC in order to ensure free and fair elections in Syria.
4) India should demand that the chronic and gory Israel-Palestine problem should be solved by the one-State solution for both Jews and Palestinians and not through an unjust and mischievous two-State solution, as reported.
5) Due to unprecedented advance in modern science and technology especially in the IT sector, the highly desirable Globalisation is unavoidable. Whereas, in addition to global currency without International-Political-Parties (IPPs, registered at the United Nations), the Globalisation is impossible. Hence:
- India should work for and demand that in place of veto to five nations, in new UN the voting power should be given to all member countries commensurate with their contribution of men (especially martial), money and material (especially military) and the record about human rights of member countries.
- India should work for and demand that Optional protocol OP-1 of ICCPR at UN should be replaced with Mandatory Protocol MP-1 in a way that even the citizens of member countries can move UN, against erring members, to protect their human rights (even with a military intervention of UNPKF).
- India should work for and demand for global currency (with proper asset back-up) with its Central Bank at United Nations and its branches in all the member countries of UN.
- Many member countries of the UN on their own cannot manage their political affairs and this leads to even global terrorism hence India should work for and demand that IPPs should be launched by the UN.
- Though Congress party during election campaign raised the issue of poverty removal through NYAY it will create more problems than solving due to payment without consideration as mentioned in various reports.
As far money for material etc. for creating infrastructure and economic assets through this improvised MNREGA the Government of India can retrieve Rs 1,000 lakh crore income tax. This huge revenue of $15 Trillion will not only eliminate poverty and will solve all the economic problems of India (as mentioned also at above S. No 1) but will also make India military and economic superpower befitting top-class world power.
It is hoped that after 2019 Parliamentary election the Union of India will devote itself for solving and addressing above-mentioned issues which are genuinely Union subjects and will stop wasting its time, energy, money and resources on issues which genuinely belong to States (including Municipalities).
