in parliament and falling approval ratings Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is pressing ahead with the overhaul of Japan’s defence policies Last week the lower House of the Diet approved 11 pieces of legislation that allow Tokyo to take on a larger military role in the Asia Pacific and Indian Ocean While the legislation will face difficulties in the upper House Abe is well-positioned to turn this into law when the bill returns to the lower House It’s not often that one sees leaders take risks in the pursuit of a political conviction Abe a rare exception has been steadfast in his determination to remove the extraordinary restraints on Japan’s military imposed by its post-war constitution Abe wants Japan to be a “normal” power 70 years after World War II Going against the grain of entrenched pacifism in Japan Abe is making the case that Tokyo should respond to the rapidly unfolding geopolitical changes in the region especially growing Chinese assertiveness in the maritime territorial disputes Abe is also conscious of the fact that America is now having a hard time sustaining its primacy in the region amid China’s expanding military capabilities Washington has been pressing Tokyo to take greater responsibility for regional security and share some of America’s burden The constitutional changes proposed by Abe will make it easier for Japan to offer military support to the US and regional partners Until now the constitution has only allowed the use of Japan’s armed forces in self-defence Regional Reaction In a predictable response China cautioned Japan against abandoning its traditional restraint and warned the region against the return of Japanese militarism Beijing has long used Japan’s colonial past to put Tokyo on the defensive In recent months it has sought to mobilise Asian and international opinion against Abe’s policies Abe however has refused to back down and persisted in his efforts to reform Japanese defence policy and make it more robust While he has faced some resistance at home Abe appears confident that the Japanese people will eventually rally round to his view Externally besides a stronger military alliance with the US Abe has sought more intensive security partnerships with other countries in the region including Australia and India While his policies have generated much negative reaction in South Korea there is greater concern in Southeast Asia about China’s regional policies than Japan’s Despite suffering Japan’s imperial aggression Vietnam and the Philippines are actively seeking defence cooperation with Tokyo This is not surprising since Hanoi and Manila today face the brunt of Beijing’s muscular policies in the South China Sea Delhi’s Moves In India the NDA government has shed the UPA’s defensiveness on security cooperation with Japan Although the strategic partnership with Japan was launched by the UPA when Abe was PM in 2006-07 New Delhi seemed reluctant to go too far It was determined to not give any offence to Beijing The Narendra Modi government has taken a very different approach — intensifying the partnership with both China and Japan but refusing to hold back with one for fear of upsetting the other The last few weeks have seen Delhi announce the renewed participation of Japan in the annual Malabar exercises in the Indian Ocean that India has been conducting with the US for more than two decades After China protested against the 2007 edition of Malabar that saw the participation of Japan Australia and Singapore along with the US the UPA government insisted that Malabar must remain bilateral in the Indian Ocean The NDA has reversed that decision Modi’s Delhi is no longer willing to give Beijing a veto over its defence partnerships Delhi is now emulating Beijing which does not defer to India’s sensitivities on its all-weather security partnership with Pakistan There are also reports that Delhi has agreed to elevate its trilateral political consultations with Washington and Tokyo which began in 2010 among senior officials of the three countries to the ministerial level The first round of talks between the three foreign ministers is expected to take place in September on the margins of the UN General Assembly The writer is a distinguished fellow at the Observer Research Foundation and a contributing editor for ‘The Indian

AS THE incidents of stray dogs attacking people have increased in the recent past a local resident has approached the Punjab and Haryana High Court to seek action against three senior UT officials for their alleged failure to implement the 2013 Municipal Corporation Scheme for management of stray dogs The High Court has sought response from the UT Home Secretary Commissioner of the Municipal Corporation and director of Chandigarh health department Petitioner Rav Pratap Singh who is a resident of Sector 15-A through his counsel Saurab Arora and Sahil Goel has alleged that the officials are not effectively implementing the “Comprehensive Scheme for the Management of Stray Dogs in the Union Territory of Chandigarh” which was notified in 2013 Singh has appealed to the court to initiate contempt proceedings against the three officials for not following a 2015 court order The High Court in a judgment in 2015 had directed the UT Administration and Municipal Corporation to implement the scheme and take all necessary steps suggested by a committee which was then formed on court directions to control the menace of stray dogs “That the inaction on the part of the respondents is clear from the fact that citizens are constantly under fear… and the petitioner being a resident of the city is approaching this Hon’ble Court seeking implementation of the judgement/order dated 28/04/2015” noted Singh’s plea The scheme for management of stray dogs includes various measures like vaccination and sterilisation of the stray dogs The High Court has listed the case for hearing on May 12 Dog
