PB’s twisty take on the top five headlines of the day.
1. Over 1 crore government employees to benefit from 7th Pay Commission: Arun Jaitley
Smart move to buy votes as well as to provide stimulus to market as extra money would create more demand, but what about common people? The fate of the non-government employees and the aged and retired people who do not get government pension seems to be indeed bleak. They are expected to reel under inflation, price-rise, increasing taxes and reducing interest rates.
2. Modi cabinet reshuffle likely in first week of July, poll-bound UP may get more say
Don”t see any advantage in having ministers from the election bound states as they will not have much time to implement new schemes and also inform people of new schemes. Its better to change people who are underperforming and also people who are not making noise in their portfolio. We need efficient people who are good managers and can implement and think out of the box like in railways.
3. Priyanka’s Role in UP to be Decided by Her, Sonia, Rahul: Congress
Tired of seeing the same news after every election. After all the election results would point towards erosion of Gandhi family’s image and how can they do the same mistake again? They can never have a mass leader if party is a single family entity.
4. 2008 Malegaon blasts: Sadhvi Pragya’s bail plea rejected
It is amazing that no charges have been filed against her even after so many years. I suppose if you wear saffron you can get away with even bomb blasts?
5. Swamy to stand by Modi whatever happens
It seems that they both know each other’s potentials very well and the loose cannon statements from either ends would be a smoke screen to cover their understanding of each other! great going!
