PB’s twisty take on the top five headlines of the day.
1. Black money haul: Rs 65,250 crore disclosed through Income Declaration Scheme
Considering that there were only 42000 people in 1 crore or above income tax bracket last year, this scheme has made many high income earners tax compliant. Good for them,good for the country. But, the average declaration of one core is very insignificant on raids of any corrupt municipal corporation town planner,the money caught is anywhere between 10 to 100 crores.
2. Pakistan to ban broadcast of all Indian television channels
The decision comes two days after the Indian producers association decided to ban Pakistani artistes and actors in Indian cinema in the aftermath of the Uri terror attack that killed 19 soldiers. This is another form of tactical warfare of modern times.
3. US, South Korea Will ‘Pay The Price’ For Planned Missile System: China
It is most irresponsible of N. Korea to threaten the use of Nuclear missiles on the US and for China to not rebuke them is abetting this threat. Talk is cheap and China has done nothing to earn the respect of the international community especially after the ICJ verdict on the South China Sea, which they refuse to comply.
4. Russia Backs India, Tells Pak To Take ‘Effective Steps’ To Contain Terror
It’s just pure pragmatism and one’s self interest. While asking Pakistan to take “effective steps” it still goes ahead with the planned joint military exercise to be held on September 24, soldiers from 34th motorized rifle brigade.While USA talks about its support to India and friendship also by the way, condemns the attacks but is still pumping in millions of dollars as aid as well as giving military hardware.
5. Swaraj Abhiyan To Launch Political Party Tomorrow
They are not serious as a political Intity but a spoil sport party. Their only Prospect is destroy AAP. The party may be funded by the BJP Alliance too in order to provide momentum.
