and ensured a draw for India A on 21 August Withinputsfrom IANS Afghan President Ashraf Ghani is slowly managing to undercut thenational influence of feudalist powers but it’s not an easy going for him as these people continue to organise different fronts against him Ghani is managing to hold firm as former warlords and government officials form alliances termed as "a coalition of killers" by Washington Post to oppose his reform efforts Often criticised for micromanaging Ghani is doing that because it’s what Afghanistan needs the most to eradicate corruption until thechange in the bureaucratic structure and security apparatus has been realisedAfghan President Ashraf Ghani Reuters The Afghan president has recently drawn the ire of a majority of thetraditionalist and ethnocentric leaders who have been grave human rights violators Even though an absolute majority of the civil bureaucrats especially at the foreign affairs ministry and military and police are members of Jamiat-e-Islami an ethnic Tajik party its leaders see that their undisputable grip over the Afghan state is slipping away Jamiat leaders took to the streets following the firing of Zia Massoud a Tajik leader by Ghani as his top adviser Massoud and other former Mujahideen pocketed billions of dollars under former president Hamid Karzai’s watch during the American aid bonanza from 2002 to 2013 Karzai gained their patronage by allowing widespread corruption especially in the police and military Jamiat members lacking even a high school degree and zero training became generals overnight Jamiat has grown strong roots in Afghan politics over the last decade The fact that their candidate Abdullah Abdullah disputed the results of general elections and forced Ghani to broker a power-sharing deal with him shows how strong the Jamiat had become Jamiat leaders and other warlords were considered untouchable and not subject to retribution and accountability But it seems to be changing Ghani has been less conservative than Karzai in exercising his power as president That began to surface following Dostum-Ishchi incident General Abdul Rashid Dostum Afghanistan’s first vice-president abducted and sexually abused Jawzjan’s former governor Ahmad Ishchi in November 2016 Dostum was sidelined from decision-making since the incident and was put under house arrest and then later was conditionally allowed to go to Turkey It was unprecedented in the nascent tenure of the current state Warlords’ impunity was accepted as the law of gravity in Afghanistan Nobody expected Ghani to go through with Dostum’s case and sacking of Zia Massoud But when he did he received consistent resistance from pro-Jamiat masses The sidelined warlords and dissenting officials met recently in Turkey and formed an alliance (Coalition for the Rescue of Afghanistan) with Dostum against Ghani Besides Dostum the alliance includes Mohammad Mohaqiq a Hazara leader and Atta Nur an ethnic Tajik leader from Jamiat but they did not present a practical rhetoric for reform aside from allegations and generic criticism of Ghani That wave of dissidence against Ghani has been joined by some parliament (Wolesi Jirga) members as well Ghani has undermined parliament members’ influence by taking advantage of the loophole the illegitimacy of the parliament The Coalition for Rescue of Afghanistan denigrated Ghani while they planned to jostle Dostum back to Afghanistan without the president’s knowledge Last week Dostum tried to land in Mazar-e-Sharif without permission from the central government but his plane was diverted to Tajikistan when asked to either land in Kabul or leave Afghanistan’s air space The powerful Balkh governor Noor could not intervene to let the plane land in Balkh Dostum’s diversion sounds like Ghani sent a message to warlords: The days of mutiny are gone Ghani’s administration is a cliffhanger On one hand he has recently appointed a young educated minister Shahzad Aryobee for the Ministry of Communications and IT on the other hand he appointed a corrupt former governor Gul Agha Sherzai as minister of Borders and Tribal Affairs He has appointed servile heads for security institutions rather than professional leaders The war with the Taliban has intensified during his administration On 6 August Taliban attacked northern province of Sar-e-Pul and killed 50 people An explosion on 24 July that took 36 lives was a sequel of a series of bombing in Kabul this year More territories are controlled by the Taliban today than ever before in the past 14 years Ghani promised to create one million jobs during his election campaigns yet there are thousands of vacancies at various levels within the government and no strategy is in place to fill them let alone create new jobs In addition he has not been able to stage the elections for Wolesi Jirga Constitutional obligations prescribed the end of the current Wolesi Jirga members in June 2015 Technically the most important democratic institution of the Afghan state is illegitimate which in turn makes the legitimacy of the cabinet questionable Despite that Ghani is the best choice Afghanistan has In the political race between Ghani and his opponents the mainstream media that act as the mouthpiece of warlords are propagating against Ghani but he has received far-flung support from social media users based on the sole reason that he has deterred warlords and corrupt officials Being a veteran World Bank official Ghani has the potential to lay the ground work for a steady economic growth in Afghanistan For example it is the first time in history that Afghanistan has had over $1bn revenue in the first half of the fiscal year–it is expected to double by the end of 2017 His collaboration with India on implementing developmental projects on rivers and building water dams such as Kajaki Kamal Khan and Salma is beginning to pay off and has even worried Iran The vision of these dams was laid during King Zahir Khan’s rule some six decades ago Ghani is now in pursuit of converting those visions into implementable projects Managing rivers of Afghanistan as such will irrigate thousands of hectares of lands which will result in a double-digit fold growth in cultivation besides generating hydroelectricity On the foreign policy end he is building an energy-oriented relationwith the energy-rich Central Asian nations Ghani has been successful in rejuvenating the credibility of Afghanistan among the West especially theUS which was badly tarnished by Karzai During the initial months in office he cleared the fog over the Afghan conflict and rigorously enunciated that Pakistan is in “a state of undeclared war” with Afghanistan while no substantial action has been taken In addition his attractive clique of prominent technocrats which includes people like Hanif Atmar Mohammad Qayoumi and the passionate youth (diverse in gender and ethnicity) of Arg have made Ghani an appealing leader in the international community While he has a clear corrupt free background and a game plan for his foreign and fiscal policies his opponents are notorious human rights violators and corrupt officials with no strategy for reform All their fuss is due to the drainage of their resources via corruption from public funds Ghani is a visionary leader Slowly and carefully he is institutionalising and modernising the Afghan state – a state that has functioned based on traditions instead of modern-day statehood The author is a post-graduate student at Journalism and Public Relations Media School

The story it seemed at the time held out hope But like an apparition in an opium-induced nightmare the emperor of poppy has been reborn — now called Pheung Kya-shin leader of an army that has been locked in fierce combat with Myanmar’s armed forces through the eastern Kokang region since February Fighting waged with artillery and combat jets has forced tens of thousands of local people out of their homes It’s a faraway war in a land few in India have heard of — but in New Delhi’s strategic community the wars in Myanmar are being watched with concern Insurgents in Myanmar have a long history of running guns to their counterparts in India Their growing power could breathe life into Indian insurgents now hiding out in the region In addition the country is seeing a steady rise in narcotics-trafficking a lucrative enterprise Indian insurgents could tap into In a worst-case scenario cross-border strikes would become the norm Ever since 2011 Myanmar has entered into ceasefires with over 15 ethnic insurgent groups working towards a negotiated political settlement In practice however many of the groups have used the ceasefire periods to expand narcotics-based fiefdoms From a peak of over 150000 hectares under opium cultivation in 1996 Myanmar reduced the figure to just 20000 hectares a decade later The years since however have seen cultivation inch steadily back to 57000 hectares The cultivation is most intense in the block of states running north to south along Myanmar’s borders with China and Thailand — Kachin North Shan South Shan and East Shan Intelligence reports also suggest new cultivation areas are opening up in Sagaing adjoining Myanmar’s borders with Manipur and Nagaland In recent reports the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime has repeatedly flagged record flows of methamphetamines through Myanmar to markets in Thailand — and on to the rest of the world Law enforcement agencies in Myanmar told the UNODC that they were “restricted in their ability to undertake interventions in the special regions because of the inaccessibility of the areas controlled by the ceasefire groups” Estimates put the value of the drug trade at $15 billion — almost a third of Myanmar’s formal gross domestic product Property prices in Yangon local residents say have risen spectacularly on the back of a tide of unaccounted cash brought in by drug-linked businesses In war-torn Kokang’s Laukkai there are spanking new hotels casinos and fashion stores Kokang’s poppy empires painstakingly chronicled over the years by scholar Bertil Lintner provide a template for how the drug boom happened across Myanmar In the 1950s Olive Yang the convent-educated daughter of a Kokang notable set up a militia with 1000 members Backed by the Kuomintang which had been thrown out of China by Mao Zedong’s army Yang funded her militia by running truckloads of opium to the Thai border In 1962 Yang was arrested only to be released two years later In the 1980s she was to emerge as a key broker of peace accords with insurgents working with Myanmar intelligence chief General Khin Nyunt Following her extraordinary life which included bisexual relationships with some of Myanmar’s top movie artistes Yang eventually renounced the world and became a nun Her story however became a template for warlordism in Kokang Yang was succeeded by her brother Jimmy Yang co-founder of the East Burma Bank and he in turn gave way to Lo Lo’s ascendance was built on striking a deal with Myanmar’s army giving him the right to run opium convoys on major roads without hindrance in return for making his troops available to fight ethnic insurgents His brother Lo Hsing Ko was — conveniently — appointed police chief for Kokang From the mid-1970s Pheung Kya-shin emerged as a competitor — backing the Communist Party of Burma instead of the government in return for support for his heroin-running operations In the 1980s when the Communist Party of Burma split its remnants signed a ceasefire deal with the government In return it was allowed a free run of the heroin trade Feud followed feud until Pheung was forced out of the region in 2009 — only to strike back in February There’s little doubt that Myanmar now confronts tough choices The ceasefires that came into effect in 2011 have brought something resembling peace to the country but at a high price: drugs and warlordism The military seeks order — but is unwilling to acquiesce to the kinds of deep democratic reforms that might quell ethnic tensions The political elite hollowed out by drug revenues has little reason to seek a transformation in the status quo In essence the poppy empires are stupefying Myanmar’s state addicting powerful elements in its polity to the cash from drugs Last year journalist Salai Thant Zin visited the village of Kanzam on Myanmar’s border with Manipur on New Year’s Eve He came back with a grim vision of the future He found the chapel the heart of the village community locked;
