PB’s twisty take on the top five headlines of the day.
1. Modi govt softens tax blow on black money scheme
Bring in a scheme for politicians, govt servants, bureaucrats and govt contractors with appropriate tax rate. The scheme be designed that information cannot be used for anti-corruption, fema, money laundering or any other criminal act. Even though it seems to be sweetening the deal for black money hoarders and crooks, India needs lot of capital resources for beefing up its infrastructure expenditure.
2. Made-in-India Tejas inducted; PM Modi lauds HAL
Great stride towards Make in India Mission. Really exciting times for Indian defense. Induction of Tejas, heavy torpedo Varunastra. Orders for M777 and K9 Vajra artillery getting cleared. Then MR-SAM and Air launched Brahmos tests have also started. Well things are starting to look good.
3. Kejriwal Government Moves Supreme Court Over Centre-Delhi Power Tussle
If it was AAP which approached Delhi High Court why is it running away from a verdict. Did it not seek/ get legal advice about the jurisdiction of Delhi High Court ? It is indeed a bizarre situation.
With the speed AAP is moving , the days are not far away that this party will file a petition in SC to declare Delhi as separate country.
4. Prez Pranab asks DRDO to boost India’s indigenous defense capabilities
India on Thursday carried out two successful test-firings of the new missile, with a strike range up to 70 km, from a defense base off Odisha coast. It was again test-fired on Friday. It should make greater efforts to boost India’s indigenous defense capabilities.
5. Bikaner land case: ED issues fresh notice to Vadra linked firm
Would like to see the closures within a reasonable time frame of 6 – 12 months, otherwise, it is a waste of the time and resources of the citizens. Another notice drama. Why can’t ED just go and arrest him just they like thry do with the common people of India. This is just an eyewash.
