PB’s twisty take on the top five headlines of the day.
1. We ‘wasted’ 25 years in alliance, rues Uddhav
The very statement of Shiv Sena that they have wasted 25 years with alliance with BJP, is in itself tantamount to coercing. Why are they wasting further time? Mr. Udhav should introspect and it will be revealed that the shiv Sena party has wasted 25 years but he caused immense damage to the party in the last two years by not extending full co-operation to BJP in pursuit of their development agenda.
2. Panel should also summon PM: Bhagwant Mann
He should answer the allegations against him. This ”you too” attitude will not help. Beating around bush. If he has breached the security or posed the threat, security personnel should be questioned.
3. Oil falls towards $44, lowest since May, on glut worries
Britain’s BP, the first oil major to report second-quarter results, on Tuesday reported lower-than-expected profit and said its refining margins were the weakest for a second quarter in six years. As China transitions to more and more required electric car use perhaps the Oil barrons will find, they are not the only game in town. People transitioning also to Natural Gas use, Propane use , Wind power,Solar power, etc. Peak pricing on oil already occurred . Guess what, people found alternatives.
4. Irom Sharmila To End Fast After 16 Years, Wants To Marry, Fight Elections
Her fast did not make much impact. Time has come for strategic retreat and try again using different way i.e. by the political route. May be she can form a party in Manipur that will win her a majority and she can be the chief minister of the state. She can make things happen that way. All the best to her.
5. Congress Would Form Government in UP After 27 Years: Dikshit
What she will be Vice versa, Congress will stand fourth in the polls. She is only a political tool in the hands of PK to split brahmin votes. PK wants to split BJP vote banks, which can be transferred to BSP coming into power from congress. Good game plan, but UP will go back further down if it succeeds.
