PB’s twisty take on the top five headlines of the day.
1. PM Narendra Modi indulging in vote bank politics: Punjab Gau Raksha Dal chief
Nobody has a right to take the law into his own hands. One may have strong feelings about the protection of cows but that does not mean that there should be open assault on human beings in the name of cow protection. The NGOs went beyond their purpose to create disturbance in the society, completely forgetting others right to live as Indian Citizen with equal rights.
2. GST Delivers Us From Tax Terrorism, Says PM Narendra Modi In Lok Sabha
Don’t think anyone should be throwing around words like ‘terrorism’ so loosely just to make a point. The form of dialect this government chooses is often confounding.
3. 31 Days Of Curfew In Kashmir, Chief Minister Likely To Meet PM
Is this also another quid pro quo for GST that the PM has had discussion with HM and NSA. While it may be true that the PM need not answer to everything happening in the country, Kashmir is an issue that was worth a mention from the PM.
4. Days after quitting BSP, Swami Prasad Maurya joins BJP
BSP is breaking and getting distributed between Congress and BJP. The person who have been all along speaking foul language for Modi and Amit and other BJP leadership is accepted in BJP, shows desperation of BJP to win in UP elections.
5. Don’t expect rate cut tomorrow, status quo more likely: Rajnish Kumar, ED, SBI
Stubbornly high food prices mean Reserve Bank of India Governor Raghuram Rajan is unlikely to make a valedictory rate cut at his final policy review on Tuesday before stepping down on September 4. Instead, the much-praised former International Monetary Fund Chief Economist can stake out what needs to be done for India to win its long war against volatile inflation. Raghuram Rajan is widely expected to hold interest rates. Future rate actions will be decided by a Monetary Policy Committee.
