Manmohan Singh’s 2G defence: Sorry, but ex-Trai chief Baijal’s accusation rings more true

Former Trai Chairman Pradip Baijal's claim that Manmohan Singh warned him of consequences if he did not cooperate in the 2G case has a greater ring of truth to it than Singh's assertion that he did not use his office to enrich himself #2G scam #A Raja #Arun Shourie #Dayanidhi Maran #Economy #Manmohan Singh #NDA #Pradip Baijal #TRAI #UPA

SC ban on neta photos in govt ads flops as Jaya shows how to get around it

There is no picture of Jaya in the ad, but can anyone be in any doubt who the ads really celebrate? The ads hail the “dynamic leadership” of “Puratchi Talaivi” (Revolutionary Leader) “Selvi J Jayalalithaa, hoping that her “four glorious years” in power will ensure that the electorate extends “Amma’s rule forever.” How is the non-use of Jaya's picture going to end the cult of personality that the Supreme Court wanted to end? #Jayalalithaa Ads #Modi 365 #SC Ban on Politicians' Photos

Low self-confidence behind Rahul Gandhi and Chidambaram’s 0/10 rating of NDA performance

NDA's scorecard reads zero, according to Rahul Gandhi and P Chidambaram. What makes Indian politics so bitter that it is being reduced to a zero-sum, win-lose game?

One year of Narendra Modi govt: A six-point plan for it to recover its mojo

Nice-to-have schemes like Swachh Bharat cannot take up too much of his time. The PM needs to run a lean, mean, focussed and execution-oriented government. He was elected to do this job— and not anything else #Aadhaar #Bills #BJP #GST #Jan Dhan #Narendra Modi #OneYearofModi #opinion #opinions #Sangh Parivar

India’s liberal heart: Citizenship for Hindu refugees quadruples under Modi

The truth our liberals refuse to see is that no country in the world has accepted more refugees than India in the 20th century and so far in this century. But we still think it is communal to rehabilitate our own internal refugees - the 400,000 Kashmiri Pandits - near their former homes in the Valley. #Bangaldesh #Citizenship #Hindu #Immigration #India #Pakistan #Sri Lanka #Visas

Suresh Prabhu has a goldmine in his kitty that could be worth more than Flipkart

IRCTC, the Indian Railways online ticket vendor, is a monopoly profit-maker that has the potential to be India's most valued e-commerce company.
