PB’s twisty take on the top five headlines of the day.
1. Gulbarg Massacre
It is good to see some progress on these cases and culprits being punished, but the quantum of punishment is disappointing. The judge said that the convicts are not a menace to the society and that they can be reformed. can they reaclly be reformed after murdering a dozen people?
Mass killing is having long-term effects psychologically on everyone. If law does not play its role effectively, then it helps in encouraging criminals and common people are severely affected. We can envisage an egalitarian society only when law performs its duty honestly and without any pressure whatsoever.
2. UK support to India for NSG
Hopefully other countries like New Zealand, Austria and South Africa support India’s NSG membership too. But, out of 48 members even if one member opposes towards entry of Indian for NSG even China supports India our country can not enter NSG. Turkey and Austria will never support India. That means all nations have veto power to stop entry. It is better not to think of NSG but see self reliance in all fields.
3. Won’t Let UP Become Kashmir: BJP’s Sangeet Som On Kairana
In 1947 kashmiri pandits were about 12% now it is 0.47% kashmiri pandits are well off well educated community they have left valley because of security reasons.
Secular Indians need to understand the issue of security for Hindus living in Muslims majority areas of India.
4. Probe into tanker scam motivated: Sheila Dikshit
Suppressing a report or delaying a file is common practice and is being used as tool so as to use it at the right time to divert the time and energy of the candidate and the party and in no way can be called to be a healthy practice and to my mind is very dangerous. The same is being used by the central government against the AAP govt in Delhi so that the energy and resources of AAP to be used in Punjab is diverted. Sheela Dixit is also claiming the same as she is a seasoned politician.
5. GST No Big Deal for Indian Economy: BJP MP Subramanian Swamy
Till GST was blocked, they blamed Congress and all other parties stating – if only GST bill had been passed, we would have been somewhere else. Now that GST has become a reality, they started downplaying it and as a proactive apology for questions that are going to rise when there still is not going to be any significant improvement.
One has to agree that there is no improvement that can be foreseen in the coming 3 years if this prevails.
