PB’s twisty take on the top five headlines of the day.
1. Thank you SC for teaching democracy to Modi: Rahul on Arunachal verdict
Rejecting NJAC proposal , has emboldened judiciary and all its recent judgments are against Govt . Where the big personalities are involved ,what it does is to give a ”stay ” . National Herald case is hanging for more than three years , but absolutely no progress , Why?
Not a major setback for BJP as most of the SC judges including the CJI were appointed during UPA rule, but they should learn from their misjudgment.
2. America’s top drone manufacturer GA-ASI to open office in India
Hopefully, this acts as the step towards the long-term relationship between the two nations. US has actually caught Russia sleeping over India’s need for fighter planes.
3. 34 dead in Kashmir violence, Syed Geelani detained in Srinagar
The separatist leader – who is under indefinite house arrest – condemned the recent clashes between tens of thousands of people and security forces following the killing of top insurgent Burhan Wani. Mr Geelani said that we killed our own people? Who were the gram sarpanchs killed by? Who were the CRPF men who were ambushed?
4. Angry China Warns Against ‘Cradle Of War’ In Sea
China cannot take on the entire world and win, whatever it might think about itself. Look back in history, the two world wars in the last century. But this time round, it will be quicker, decisive and utterly destructive. 30 years of 10% growth year on year will not only be wiped out, but may end up back in the middle ages! China depends on trade with major countries for its survival. Immediate boycott of Chinese products and services will starve them to death. They can be subjugated without war.
5. Najma Heptullah quits, Naqvi gets a promotion
A graceful exit was accorded and it is the prerogative of the PM to accept or otherwise a resignation from the council of ministers. President does not have much of an option on this which the former minster knows very well.
Abolition of minorities welfare ministry send wrong signal to global community and we are also minorities in overseas countries and they are enjoying the same benefits in majority of the countries Indians settled in the name of religious minorities.
