It’s stupid to call Lalit Modi a ‘bhagoda': He wasn’t one and still is not one

The cases against Sushma Swaraj and Vasundhara Raje make no sense unless it is established that Lalit Modi was a fugitive from justice. There is no evidence whatsoever to prove that he was, or even is, a "bhagoda" #BCCI #Bhagoda #BJP #Congress #India #IPL #Lalit Modi #P. Chidambaram #Rajiv Shukla #sushma swaraj #UPA #Vasundhara Raje

UPA left the banking system toxic, and Jaitley’s moving too slowly to fix it

The UPA's worst legacy was to leave behind a limping banking system that will be unable to finance growth.
