Rail Budget 2015: Suresh Prabhu chooses common man over politics

Thankfully, Suresh Prabhus Rail budget 2015 is not an election manifesto. By not using the budget for cheap populist stunts, Prabhu has ensured that his maiden speech would remain non-controversial and will, thus, allow him the peace and luxury of implementing it away from the glare of the critics. #Politics #InMyOpinion #Indian Railways #Common man #Passenger Fares #Suresh Prabhu #budget 2015 #Budget2015 #Rail Budget 2015 #Railbudget 2015

Finance Commission report: Modi's federalism gets boost with bonanza for states

The Commission headed by former Reserve Bank of India governor, YV Reddy, has gone a step further beyond the resource sharing recommendations all Finance Commissions do and outlined a new paradigm of Centre-state relations. #Economy #Narendra Modi #InMyOpinion #Planning Commission #fiscal deficit #Arun Jaitley #Yashwant Sinha #YV Reddy #NDA #Centre-State Relations #Finance Commission #Niti Aayog #Budget2015

Politicians opposing the Land bill are all landlords with vested interests

If all political parties seem to be ganging up against the proposed changes in the Land Acquisition Act, it's because the old law is more favourable to big land-owners. Most politicians have too many vested interests in land. #UPA #InMyOpinion #Land Acquisition Act #farmers #Land #NDA #Land Ordinance

Vanzara gets bail: It's ethically and morally wrong to reinstate cops accused of fake encounters

What is important here is that there are police witnesses in these cases and the accused have now been placed in positions of power over them. #Gujarat #InMyOpinion #Amit Shah #Sohrabuddin #Ishrat Jahan Case #Abhay Chudasama

Pak boat row: Modi govt pays price of turning terror into PR event

With one slip of tongue, Loshali has destroyed all the goodwill the government had earned through its invite to Nawaz Sharif for Narendra Modis swearing-in and the telephone call diplomacy over the cricket world cup. #India #Pakistan #InMyOpinion #Coast guard #DIG #Terror boat #BK Loshali

IPL auction: Yuvraj Singh should not have to pay more tax than Aaron Finch

Why do we go overboard in our tax hospitality to foreign sportspersons? The ostensible reason is to attract the best talent so that a nation lagging behind in sports gets to watch the best in the field and learn. #IPL #Australia #InMyOpinion #Yuvraj Singh #Tax #DTAA #Aaron Finch #IPL 8
PM Modi's suit fetches Rs 1.25 cr: But will charity wash away the vanity?

PM Modi's suit fetches Rs 1.25 cr: But will charity wash away the vanity?

Its commendable that Modi's pinstriped suit is not going to just hang in some closet, no longer used though not forgotten. India might be a little cleaner thanks to it but just because it now has a new charitable avatar does not mean it wipes the slate clean of its original vanity. That remains written all over it. #Charity #Narendra Modi #InMyOpinion #Ganga #Modi #bandhgala #pinstriped suit #vanity

More than words: PM Modi has to back stand on religious tolerance with bold action

Whatever the provocation for his utterance today, it is a welcome development. But the PM Modi should speak more often like this on religious tolerance to win the confidence of the people of the country in general, not only the minorities. #Religion #Narendra Modi #InMyOpinion #Hindutva #RSS #minorities #Muslims #christians #Love jihad #ghar wapsi #religious tolerance
How Jairam Ramesh's Luddite ban on Bt Brinjal has set us back several years

How Jairam Ramesh's Luddite ban on Bt Brinjal has set us back several years

It is reasonable to be cautious with the introduction of genetically-modified crops. But risks have to be weighed against benefits. Jairam Ramesh's indefinite moratorium on GM brinjal tilts the balance significantly against scientific progress. #Sonia Gandhi #Manmohan Singh #Asian Development Bank #Jairam Ramesh #InMyOpinion #Food security #BT Brinjal #green revolution #Swadeshi Jagran Manch #Mahyco Monsanto #Bharatiya Kisan Sangh #Genetic Engineering Approvals Committee
