much-needed steel to Arsenal’s defence after the intimidating Bosnian made his presence felt in the Gunners’ Community Shield victory over Chelsea Kolasinac joined Arsenal on a free transfer from Schalke in the close-season and already looks an ideal fit for the physical demands of the Premier League The 24-year-old came off the bench in the first half of Sunday’s friendly against Chelsea at Wembley and won over his new team-mates with a commanding display capped by Arsenal’s 82nd-minute equaliser Sead Kolasinac (R) celebrates scoring Arsenal’sfirst goal during the Community Shield match against Chelsea at Wembley AP Kolasinac is usually a left-back but he showed his versatility replacing the injured Per Mertesacker at centre-back and helping the often leaky Gunners defence subdue Chelsea Not content with dominating at the back Kolasinac popped up at the other end to score with a powerful header forcing the penalty shoot-out that Arsenal won 4-1 Walcott revealed the hulking Kolasinac has made a big impression with his no-holds-barred approach in training and the Gunners winger is expecting opposing forwards to get an even tougher time from the Bosnian this season "Sead looks an absolute tank He is one tough unit to get past His physical attributes are going to be key for us this season" Walcott said "He is an absolute animal I see him in the gym everyday You can just tell he looks after himself well He eats the right foods He is a professional "The power he’s got and his pace it’s beautiful to watch He’s a great addition to the squad "Trust me he is not easy to get around He’s quite wide as well He fits perfectly for the Premier League "This league is the best and he’s going to be one of the best in the league" After last season’s troubled campaign ended with FA Cup final victory against Chelsea Arsene Wenger’s side are under pressure to challenge for the Premier League title But consigned to the Europa League after failing to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in 20 years Walcott admits it won’t be easy to change the perception that Arsenal have lost ground on their title rivals Buzzing "It’s going to be a tough season we all know that with the Europa as well" he said "We will let people talk on the outside We know what we have to do this season "We know how important it is We are up for the challenge we do like a good challenge "It is going to be different this year It’s how we react We can’t really dwell on the past anymore "We have to focus on our strengths We had a good end to last season and we are getting used to a new system "We are slowly learning it It is working for now and we will stick with it" Key to Arsenal’s success will be the form of club record signing Alexandre Lacazette The France forward signed for 465 million ($606 million) from Lyon hit the post against Chelsea but that was the highlight of a largely anonymous display Walcott defended his new team-mate saying: "When you give him time and space on the ball he can show his quality "He’s a goalscorer and he is going to score goals for this club "The amount of players we have in key positions they are going to supply chances for him" Arsenal open their Premier League campaign at home to Leicester City on Friday and Walcott can’t wait to get going "Being a night game might be better for us The fans will be up for it" he said "The home support is always crucial That will be so key this season if the fans are right behind us from the kick-off "It’s exciting The Premier League is back You are ask anyone we are buzzing now" New Delhi: Social activist Anna Hazare on Tuesday expressed disagreement with his one-time protege and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal saying it is not right to ask for proof of surgical strikes by the army on terror camps in PoK "It is unfair to ask for proof of surgical strikes I condemn this The matter is related to the army thecountryand the border At this time it is wrong to mistrust (the army) There was a lot planning done for the operation In a such a case how can we mistrust people" Hazare said File photo of Anna Hazare PTI He was speaking at the launch of the trailer of his biopic ‘Anna’ Hazare is a veteran of 1965 Indo-Pak war and was posted in the northeast at a time when theinsurgency was flaring in the region In a televised speech on Monday Kejriwal had "saluted" Prime Minister Narendra Modi for ordering the surgical strike but also referred to some international media reports and an UN group observations both of which appear to question its authenticity as he asked the Prime Minister to "unmask the Pakistani propaganda" Claiming that Kejriwal "sought proof" on the anti-terror operation the BJP asked him not to belittle the armed forces by getting influenced by Pakistani "propaganda" At a press conference today Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said the AAP leader should answer whether he believed in the Indian Army or not Kejriwal rejected BJP’s criticism and accused it of playing politics over the anti-terror surgical strike and said why was the party "scared" when he had only asked the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to counter the propaganda by Pakistan Hazare also warned the Union government that if it does not implement the Lokpal Bill then he will again resort to protests in Ram Lila Maidan London: Poland’s foreign minister has called on Britain to protect Poles living in the UK during an urgent visit to London following a spate of attacks against migrants Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski flew to London along with Home Affairs Minister Mariusz Blaszczak after two Poles were attacked over the weekend an incident which followed the murder of a fellow Pole in August Speaking after a joint meeting with British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson and Interior Minister Amber Rudd Waszczykowski said such attacks were a recent phenomena "We reminded the representatives of the UK government that Polish migrants integrated very well with British society. they deserve respect" he told journalists at the Polish embassy "Over decades the big Polish community in the UK has not suffered any problems but after the referendum campaign some incidents started to happen" Waszczykowski added The 23 June vote for Britain to leave the European Union saw a spike in the number of attacks against foreigners The National Police Chiefs’ Council said more than than 3000 incidents were reported to police in England Wales and Northern Ireland between 16 and 30 June — an increase of 42 percent from the same period last year Representational image Waszczykowski said immigration had been used as a "weapon" in the campaign against EU membership calling on British authorities to safeguard the rights of Polish migrants "They are paying taxes they deserve to be protected" he said Poland is the most common foreign country of birth for people living in Britain according to figures released last month by the Office for National Statistics An estimated 831000 Polish-born people lived in Britain in 2015 — a more than 13-fold increase on the 69000 residents in 2004 when Poland joined the EU and its nationals gained the right to live and work in Britain The Polish embassy said it intervened in 15 serious hate crime incidents in recent weeks including an arson attack on a Polish family’s home and physical assault During the bilateral meeting the Polish delegation suggested increasing contact with Poland’s police force and introducing educational programmes about integrating migrants in the UK The ministers’ visit to London came a day after two Poles were attacked outside a pub in Harlow northeast of London at around 3:30 am (0230 GMT) on Sunday The assault followed the killing of factory worker Arek Jozwik in the same town on 27 August Speaking alongside Waszczykowski on Monday Poland’s home affairs minister said the government wanted to make sure there was an effective investigation into the killing "I expressed my surprise that the six youngsters that had been arrested in connection with the incident have been released" said Blaszczak referring to the meeting with the British ministers Written by P Chidambaram | Published: June 12 2016 12:00 am RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan Related News It was good that Dr Raghuram Rajan Governor RBI has cleared some of the mist — and myth — surrounding the GDP numbers He gave two simple examples: *First example: ‘Exports minus imports’ is a contributory factor to GDP Exports declined in 2015-16 but imports declined even more So ‘exports minus imports’ in 2015-16 was greater than ‘exports minus imports’ in 2014-15 That means growth contributing to the GDP number (in current prices) *Second example: ‘Sales minus input costs’ is another contributory factor to GDP Sales of all manufacturing firms declined by 902 per cent in 2015-16 over the previous year but input costs declined more sharply (1842 per cent) thanks to the steep fall in oil and commodity prices Consequently ‘sales minus input costs’ was greater in 2015-16 than in 2014-15 Result is growth Output declines growth rises In both cases there was no increase in output Exporters exported less factories produced less firms had lower turnovers there was little or no additional employment and yet the sectoral ‘growth’ figures of the export sector and the manufacturing sector were positive leading to the illusion that export and manufacturing sectors had ‘grown’ at a brisk pace (Here I assume that productivity remained constant) Since the two sectors contributed significantly to the overall GDP number the GDP number got a boost The steep decline in oil and commodity prices is a new phenomenon and I think the CSO is not equipped to construct credible growth numbers in such a situation The disconnect between the numbers and the reality on the ground is very evident No amount of rationalisation can change the reality that is felt every day by the citizens — CPI inflation upwards of 5 per cent no new visible investment and no additional jobs on offer The average person is therefore stunned when he is told that the GDP had grown at 76 per cent We get a more realistic picture of the economy if we look at the output numbers Of the eight core industries coal refinery products fertilisers cement and electricity produced more in 2015-16 while crude oil natural gas and steel produced less than in the previous year The growth in the Index of Industrial Production of the eight core industries in 2015-16 was only 267 per cent Nevertheless the CSO reported high growth in the three sectors (that encompass the eight industries) namely mining and quarrying (744 per cent) manufacturing (929) and electricity and gas (657) Deficiencies in methodology Ever since the CSO moved to the new method of calculation there has been growing scepticism Analysts have pointed to several aspects of the new methodology that are suspect One of the main deficiencies was the choice of deflators Gross value additions (GVA) are measured in current prices but in order to make them comparable with measurements based on prices in the base year (2011-12) one must ‘deflate’ them with an appropriate deflator In the cases of ‘trade hotels transport communication etc’ and ‘financial real estate and professional services’ the GVA at current prices was 66 per cent and 74 per cent respectively The CSO applied negative deflators and reported a growth rate of 90 per cent and 103 per cent respectively When the 12-month average of CPI inflation in 2015-16 was 49 per cent it is difficult to believe that inflation in these two sectors was negative There has been no convincing explanation why negative deflators were chosen for these two service sectors The second deficiency was the use of the MCA21 database It has been admitted that the database requires to be stabilised We also know anecdotally that small and medium firms find it difficult to report the data about their firms periodically in the new format Besides the MCA21 database has been shared only with the CSO and no one has been able to verify the correctness of the data The GDP growth number is an approximation of the underlying economic activity Many economic decisions of the government and private investors are based on that number My analysis leads to the conclusion that the GDP number is not ‘as accurate as possible’ and certainly does not inspire confidence Some corrections are therefore in order Corrections needed The first correction must be to identify industries and sectors where quantitative output had declined in 2015-16 over 2014-15 (productivity assumed as constant) and assume that growth in such industry/sector was zero Examples would be exports crude oil natural gas and steel The second correction would be to re-visit the deflators that were used There is a huge divergence between WPI inflation and CPI inflation It makes no sense to use negative deflators for sectors (especially services) where oil and commodity prices have no role to play and where consumer prices have in fact increased The third correction is to reconstruct the GDP numbers using the old conventional data and release them alongside the numbers using the MCA21 database until the MCA21 database is believed to have been stabilised Finally there is no harm in publishing at least for a few years GDP numbers using the old method and the new method The CSO should complete the following table and restore credibility to the whole exercise: My guess is that the the number for each of the question mark-years would be between 5 and 55 per cent Website: pchidambaramin @Pchidambaram_IN For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Reuters | Mumbai | Updated: October 17 2017 6:47 pm The deal came after they lost out to Star India for the IPL rights last month (Source: File) Top News Losing the Indian Premier League broadcast rights to Star India was disappointing but Sony Pictures Networks believes it has enough cricket in its portfolio to challenge their main rivals after striking a new deal with Cricket Australia last week SPN owned by Sony Corp have acquired the rights to broadcast Australian cricket in the Indian subcontinent including Pakistan and Sri Lanka for the next six years for an undisclosed amount The deal came after they lost out to Star India for the IPL rights last month but Rajesh Kaul the president of SPN’s Sports and Distribution Business believes the failure to land the rights for the highly successful T20 competition was not crucial “Disappointed Yes because we had nurtured IPL for the last 10 years We created IPL and made it into the huge brand that it is now” Kaul told Reuters “Yes we are little bit disappointed but luckily our dependence on IPL is not there today” India’s huge market is a major draw for sponsors and advertisers who often plan product launches around major cricket tournaments and book advertising slots in advance in turn leading to a stiff race between broadcasters to secure content Star India a unit of Rupert Murdoch’s Twenty-First Century Fox last month bid a staggering 16348 billion Indian rupees ($252 billion) to bag the worldwide television and digital rights of the IPL for the next five years SPN who had owned the rights for a decade was the only other bidder for the television rights with 1105 billion rupees but lost out to Star’s multi-platform offer Star also owns rights to India’s home matches and paid $7576 million for the period from July 2012 to March 2018 Those rights will be up for bidding soon which could see another round of intense bidding from the two major players in the Indian market “The BCCI rights will be good to have No doubt about that” Kaul said “But we will be very thoughtful about this Our IPL bid was aggressive but still very thoughtful “We are here to run a successful business That is always at the core of our entire strategy There is so much cricket available on our network already” The Ashes series between Australia and England around the New Year will be the first fruits of their deal with Cricket Australia The deal strengthens their position after last year they paid $385 million to acquire TEN Sports which owns rights of cricket boards in South Africa Pakistan Sri Lanka West Indies and Zimbabwe “Given that cricket still enjoys one of the highest viewerships among all audiences in the country the focus was to strengthen that portfolio despite having five cricket boards with us” Kaul said in an interview “It’s another win for us it makes our portfolio far more formidable It consolidates our position as a very strong destination for cricket apart from so many other sports” SPN also struck a deal in 2015 with sports broadcaster ESPN a Walt Disney unit to launch new channels and foray into digital market Besides broadcasting the NBA and the NFL in India SPN also holds rights for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia the ongoing under-17 World Cup and soccer leagues such as Spain’s La Liga and Italy’s Serie A “The whole idea of acquiring TEN Sports was to consolidate our position as a very formidable and serious sports broadcaster” Kaul said “We are very happy that today we have one of the most diversified portfolio of sports on our channels” For all the latest Sports News download
