PB’s twisty take on the top five headlines of the day.
1. Feud in UP’s first family puts a question mark on Akhilesh Yadav’s clout
So many push and pulls and infighting is going to affect the fortunes of the party in the coming elections. At this rate few years down the line, it would be only Mulayam Singh’s kith and kin in the ministry, if they are not stopped. It is high time they are stopped.
2. PM Narendra Modi’s Vietnam visit is to signal India’s presence in South-East Asia
A good tactical and diplomatic move to keep China under tenterhooks. There is a huge possibility to get benefited by Vietnam ties as IOC is going to involve in Vietnam.
3. Curfew lifted from Kashmir after 51 days
Whoever is against the integrity of this nation should be dealt with severely. Noone can take the law in their hands and support insurgency. Kashmir is bleeding the country literally, economically and socially. The sooner a “secular ” solution is found for this problem the better. There are other states in India, which need need more attention.
4. Congress Not A Good Match, Suggests Sidhu’s Wife. Over To AAP
The confusion continues and no other substantial news makes headlines because of this. RJD is the best party to join for the couple, They do not want to be in BJP. AAP does not want them. Congress wants them but they do not want Congress. The other probable parties are: CPM, CPI, BSP, SP, JDU and RJD. Of all parties, RJD is the most suitable for Sidhu.
5. Mamata Banerjee govt drops GST ratification bill for now
Banerjee, who is an advocate of the GST bill, wants to wait and watch what other states, especially the non-Bharatiya Janata Party ruled states, are going to do before taking a decision. The Constitution has provisions in Articles 257(1),254(1) and 245 read with Art 355 and non ratification by West Bengal will not matter when it come to implementing the law.The fundamental mistake is in having a party form of government in disregard of clear provision in Art 37 of the Directive Principles of State Policy.
