PB’s twisty take on the top five headlines of the day.
1. China cautiously backs India-Japan nuclear deal
It knows India’s impeccable credentials on non proliferation of nuclear technology are unquestionable and its stand is flawed, particularly when viewed against China not vetoing France and Brazil, both non signatory to NPT, becoming members of the NSG. There is no other way but to cautiously praise, as you cannot have the 2nd and 3rd largest asian economies as your adversaries at the same time.
2. Demonetisation: Congress, 7 opposition parties meet to formulate joint strategy
It is strange that that the two communist parties whom the people in the country believe that they are are less dishonest are joining hands with TMC well known for Saradha scam,JMM for voting for congress for considerations of money and YSR party, leader having so many cases against him for having committing so many frauds.
3. Hardship necessary; bear with my justice which is ‘kadak’, like my chai: PM Modi
Modi government is extremely adept at optics, at policy measures presented in a blaze of publicity that dazzles the public, rather than with the required attention to detail that might ensure their success. The PM mentions his Chaiwalla past. It shows he is not bothered, but rather he is very much enjoys it.
4. Pakistan army chief Raheel Sharif orders effective response to Indian firing
General Raheel said on the occasion that army “will continue to respond effectively” and it ordered that it should “leave no stone unturned to defend motherland”. His statements are along the expected lines from his point of view. Nothing more or better could be expected from there. Let us pursue our line of action. Our aim is not to wage a war with that country but only to arrest the spread of terror from there.
5. Donald Trump Says Will Take USD 1 as Salary With no Vacations
This news is making headlines for the same reason, Kejriwal does, distraction. His actions shall be judged, not on the basis of the salary denied, but the condition of the country in the coming years.
