This clause does not even suggest a direct role for the judiciary in the appointment of judges, leave alone the creation of a collegium. The government only has to ensure effective consultation. #ConnectTheDots #judges selection #NJAC #Supreme Court

After the Arnab show: Now we know Narendra Modi little better and much of it is good

Not that Goswami didn't have tough questions to ask, but Modi took them head on where he was comfortable, offered a straight bat for the difficult ones, and deflected those that seemed likely to dislodge his stumps. #Arnab Goswami #ConnectTheDots #Frankly Speaking #media and modi #Narendra Modi #Raghuram Rajan #Subramanian Swamy #Times Now

Poser for PM Modi: How do you solve a problem like Subramanian Swamy?
