poll result in 2009 Following NCP’s withdrawal of support Chavan in a late night press conference had questioned the timing of the break up and wondered if another alliance was in the offing

Thursday that the old alliance with Congress ended because Chavan was not open to any dialogue which would keep the alliance intact A report in the Times of Indiahad quoted a Chavan supporter as saying: "Sharad Pawar and the NCP never liked the Congress’ decision to appoint Chavan as the CM The acrimony between the Pawars and the Chavans goes back to 1970s Chavan’s mother Premilatai and father Dajisaheb were staunch supporters of the Congress and stood by the Gandhi family during its political ups and downs The Pawars have been sulking because the Chavans never succumbed to their pressure and kept the Congress flag flying in western Maharashtra" Owing to his clean image Prithviraj was deputed by Congress president Sonia Gandhi to take charge as Maharashtra as chief minister after the then chief minister Ashok Chavan allegedly got entangled in the Adarsh building scam Prithviraj had taken oath of office in Mumbai on 11 November 2010 A mechanical engineer by training

time gap between the day the government announces a stake sale plan in a PSU and the actual launch of an offer can be as large as one year Related News The CEO of a top mutual fund recently told me that an investor in Mumbai has named his luxury cars ONGC NTPC and PGC Not because he loves the public sector but because dealing in the stock of these state-owned companies ahead of their public offers helped him earn enough to build an enviable fleet More about his strategy later but let it suffice to say that the government’s poor strategy and poorer market understanding and the PSU management’s what’s-in-it-for-me approach in the sell-off programme helped him multiply his gains In the process the government was unable to get the best value for its shares Since April 1 2014 the Bombay Stock Exchange Sensitive Index (Sensex) has risen by a phenomenal 25 per cent but the disinvestment department could never find an opportune time to hit the market In the 10 months of this financial year it has collected a paltry Rs 1700 crore whereas its disinvestment receipts target for the year is an ambitious Rs 63425 crore The performance reflects not just on the government’s poor track record but also on its aversion to innovation The finance ministry may end the year realising some more money but it will be nowhere close to the target This will hurt especially in a year when the government is staring at a Rs 1 lakh crore-plus revenue shortfall due to a slowing economy Market analysts are not surprised They are however exasperated at the government’s refusal to learn from past mistakes It isn’t just this year In 2013-14 actual receipts were less than 50 per cent of the budget target of Rs 55800 crore Before getting into the minutiae of what ails the programme itself let’s quickly look at how the Mumbai investor made his pot of gold The bureaucracy that accompanies a market offer lends itself to a terrible time lag The time gap between the day the government announces a stake sale plan in a PSU and the actual launch of an offer can be as large as one year Market professionals thrive on advance information This allows them to beat down the price by short-selling shares — that is selling shares of a company without really owning them Short-sellers believe that prices will drop in future hence they sell at a high price today and cover it by purchasing the same number of shares at a lower price on a later date This particular investor made huge profits during the stake sales of ONGC NTPC and PGC This is just one fundamental mistake that the government continues to repeat The 5 per cent Sail disinvestment in December 2014 was actually cleared by the UPA government The 52-week high of Sail stock was Rs 110 but then short-selling brought the price down over time leading to a floor price of Rs 835 on the day of the offer It is the same with NTPC and PGC the issues where the Mumbai investor made mega-bucks Indeed an announcement much ahead of the actual sale and the consequent fall in prices results in a notional loss to the government This is now being rectified by the government — cabinet clearance is taken for stake sales in a bunch of companies This will prevent the distribution of asymmetric information to market players hindering them from exploiting an opportunity to pick on a particular stock There are many more examples of the department of disinvestment’s limited grasp of market expectations For instance in the recent past the management of a state-owned bank decided to offer shares to the public at a price lower than its book value Some large stakeholders alerted the bank management and even the finance ministry to the fact that this amounted to penalising existing shareholders But the advice fell on deaf ears The second issue is more serious and one all investors hate It is a combination of three aspects — a not-so-professional board ministry interference and to top it all policy uncertainty — which besides damaging investor perception also adversely impact companies’ future earnings and growth potential Here order can be restored only by the government For instance more than a dozen PSUs are without a full-time head many do not have high-quality independent directors and still others are least bothered about the successful outcome of a public offer since they hold little stake A good employee stock option plan will infuse a sense of ownership among the top brass Government managers and PSUs may also need some basic lessons in soft skills The chief of a global investment bank was appalled when the joint secretary of an administrative ministry handed him the luggage at an airport after he had raised his hands in greeting The banker was furious and one can imagine his commitment to seal the deal For most bureaucrats and PSU managements disinvestment is just another transaction It is not about creating and influencing market expectations Since there is no continuity in the disinvestment department it is difficult to build expertise of the kind required to overcome the challenge in understanding markets The market has been waiting for clarity on the subsidy sharing formula among oil PSUs for years During the ONGC stake sale three years ago a fund manager asked about this during a pre-public offer meet But the ONGC brass told him that it didn’t have answers and that it was the government’s prerogative Government representatives refused to commit to an answer Now if an ONGC issue is planned again how will the government build an investment case The subsidy sharing mechanism is still not in place Finally there is the government’s aversion to innovation For instance it has never really reposed faith in the Indian public A public offer hypothetically of the State Bank of India can ideally be restricted to retail investors only If institutions or high net worth individuals know they cannot participate there would be little incentive for them to beat down the price There is a myth that retail investors do not have the depth to subscribe to large issues But in the last six months or so equity mutual funds have received an average of Rs 5000 crore every month A quality stock like the SBI when offered at a 5-10 per cent discount to retail investors will be lapped up Why not experiment [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download

warned during a visit to the Gaza Strip of "another eruption" in the Palestinian enclave devastated from last summer’s conflict with Israel "I’m extremely concerned that if you leave Gaza in the state it’s currently in you’ll have another eruption and violence and then we’re back in a further catastrophe so we’ve got to stop that" he said File photo of Tony Blair AP Blair was making his first trip to Gaza since the July-August war between Israel and the territory’s Islamist rulers Hamas The conflict killed about 2200 Palestinians and 73 on the Israeli side and left 100000 Gazans homeless The United Nations has been taking efforts to speed up the delivery of material to rebuild damaged homes with officials saying the pace has picked up after a slow start Britain’s former premier also called for a rethink on how peace could be reached two decades after the historic accord which was to have paved the way for a final agreement "So 20 years after Oslo we need a new approach to Gaza
