PB’s twisty take on the top five headlines of the day.
1. Delhi HC rejects Vijay Mallya’s plea challenging summons
Mallya’s counsel told the Delhi HC on July 15 that since the businessman was not involved in the day-to-day affairs of Kingfisher Airlines (KFA), he cannot be held liable in the several cheque-bouncing cases filed against him. This has now turned into a daily drama with no conclusive end to be seen any time soon.
2. Arrest me in six months or I will arrest you, says Kejriwal
Kejriwal lived up to his reputation of taking on the mighty and powerful as he did during the Delhi assembly elections. He is openly threatening someone on basis of his private investigation? Is he the representative of the educated middle class whom he used as a ladder to climb up in his career? And now he just discarded the middle class, when he should actually be concerned in eradicating their problems first.
3. Issue of domiciliary not out of context: Nitish Kumar
Nithish and Lalu were opponents with so called opposition parties and now became allies fooling the voters, looks like another stunt. Nitish is playing divisive politics this is very dangerous and in the end Bihar will be the ultimate loser.
4. Expelled BJP leader Dayashankar arrested in Bihar for abusing Mayawati
Singh had dodged the Uttar Pradesh police for over a week. Good work Bihar Govt. Hope now UP Govt will also act & arrest Naseemudin for his remark. Mayawati will expel him from BSP for his leaders remark as same as Arun Jaitely. Else this will proove that we have different law on basis of position of a person. New form of casteism.
5. April-June fiscal deficit at Rs 3,263 cr, 61.1% of FY17 Budget estimate
The deficit was 51.6 percent in the same quarter of last fiscal. The government estimates fiscal deficit in 2016-17 to be Rs 5.33 lakh crore or 3.5 percent of GDP. Sensex may touch 30k but this market is cluelessly running up ahead of earning fundamentals and economic growth. Analysts always paint rosy pictures on forward earnings but will never publish or talk about actual earnings after each Financial year.
