Mahinda Rajapaksa will continue to lose" he said adding that as president he will be neutral in the campaign and ensure a free and fair election Sirisena’s statement came a day after Rajapaksa told Reuters that he would lead the campaign with the president as the chairman of the party to form a SLFP-led government Sirisena came under heavy criticism from supporters for letting Rajapaksa run for office as a coalition candidate Some of the president’s supporters joined the centre-right United National Party (UNP) led by current Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe "Sirisena delivered a timely message and neutralised the campaign of the corrupt Rajapaksa" said Keerthi Tennakoon the executive director of Campaign for Free and Fair Election "Now most of Rajapaksa’s supporters will try to dissociate from him" Sirisena who held several cabinet minister posts during Rajapaksa’s 2005-2015 administration defected last year to run for president and unexpectedly won He promised fresh parliamentary elections this year which will come in August after months of legislative deadlock as his coalition with Wickramesinghe struggled to pass key political reforms Rajapaksa and some allies

critical of the Hindu right’s cultural agenda to be associated with GIAN FollowingUS President Barack Obama’s recent visit to India the governments of the United States and India have “pledged to collaborate through India’s Global Initiative of Academic Networks (GIAN) to facilitate short-term teaching and research programmes by up to 1000 visiting US academics in Indian universities” This joint statement followed an earlier one by the leaders of the two countries during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the US last year when the American president “welcomed India’s proposal to establish GIAN under which India would invite and host up to 1000 American academics each year to teach in Centrally recognised Indian universities at their convenience” GIAN is an ambitious initiative and promises to connect “Centrally recognised” institutions notably Central universities IITs and IIMs with the best scholars and institutions in the US The government’s position is that among other things GIAN will be beneficial for the adoption of new methods of pedagogy boosting research in cutting-edge technologies and building stronger academic networks between both countries Fields medalist Manjul Bhargava the first person of Indian origin to win the prestigious award in mathematics has been recruited to be the face and facilitator of GIAN The Princeton professor is optimistic about roping in US-based academics to participate in the initiative As is the case with nearly all new initiatives or policies GIAN has elicited praise in some quarters and scepticism in others However in all fairness at this stage we can only make some preliminary observations about it There is no doubt that as an idea and a plan for action GIAN holds great promise Once implemented provided its execution is carried out with a fair degree of competence it will over time connect knowledge communities in the US and India as well as deepen existing networks to the benefit of our higher education and knowledge sector For the time being however the details and modalities are still being worked out sometimes at the very last moment For example the ministry of human resource development (MHRD) got working on the issue of salaries and benefits for visiting US faculty only a week before Obama’s visit reportedly at the insistence of the prime minister There also seem to be doubts or perhaps just a lack of clarity about the purpose and scope of GIAN Higher education observers would have noticed an important difference in the joint statements of September 2014 and January 2015 The first identified “teaching” as the purpose of GIAN whereas the second joint statement included both “teaching” and “research” Another important difference which has been revealed not by the joint statements but the reports on the Modi-Obama meetings is to do with the disciplines GIAN will cover In its earlier version GIAN was conceived of as a way to create a channel for US academics in science technology engineering and mathematics to spend time at higher education institutions across India Six months later humanities has been added to the list of disciplines It is possible that the Indian side woke up to include “research” and “humanities” as relevant to GIAN or maybe the Americans suggested their inclusion We should perhaps not read too much into these changes It is likely that they only reflect the fact that GIAN is in the early stages of design There are several other areas of concern but many may well become irrelevant over time and other less anticipated issues will come to the fore However there are three points worth bringing up First it is clear that the success of GIAN will depend substantially on the coordination and management capacities of the MHRD and the concerned higher education institutions Can they deliver effectively Second in the near future perhaps fewer than half of the higher education institutions linked to GIAN would be in a position to utilise it fully Many Central universities IITs and IIMs have either not been built or are still under construction Several others have inadequate infrastructure or are situated in “difficult” locations Finally there are those institutions that for different reasons do not attract a sufficient number of good faculty and/ or students Third with the inclusion of humanities there is potential for controversy The task of identifying the names of established US scholars and recruiting them for GIAN will involve Indian institutions and the MHRD It is not known whether Americanacademics can “volunteer” for GIAN directly or via the US government and if so whether the Indian side will welcome known and possible critics of the current government and its policies For example will the government allow US-based academics who are critical of the Hindu right’s cultural agenda to be associated with GIAN The writer is assistant professorat the department of humanities and social science
