Narendra Modi's WTO stand is a far cry from UPA's weak trade policies

Narendra Modi's WTO stand is a far cry from UPA's weak trade policies

Through this bold decision, in which the the 31 July deadline for the Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA) has lapsed, India has told the US and the EU that its primary concern is its hungry poor and not their goodwill. Without agreeing to safeguarding their food interests, India cannot agree to a treaty aimed at maximising (mostly) rich countries exports. #UPA #US #InMyOpinion #Food security #WTO #Trade Facilitation Agreement #Modi's WTO stand

Thai junta gives security forces majority in interim legislature

BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand's junta on Thursday named a majority of active and retired members of the security forces to an interim legislature of 200 people, as it seeks to keep tight control over the body it will task with enacting sweeping reforms. The armed forces took power on May 22 in a bloodless coup following six months of street demonstrations that contributed to the ousting of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. The junta had been widely expected to reserve both the majority of the interim legislature and the cabinet for the security forces to keep a tight grip on power during a transition back toward a civilian government. #facebook #India #China #Business #Arabic #Security #Latin America #Entertainment #Mexico #opinion

Bugging in Nitin Gadkari's home Here's why Modi govt must institute a probe

If there is indeed no tension between the party and government or among ministers, then the needle of suspicion rests on the NSA. And that cannot be good news for the Modi government seeking to rebuild ties with the US. #Manmohan Singh #UPA #Nitin Gadkari #PoliticsDecoder #Bharatiya Janata Party #USA #Indo-US relations #National Security Agency #Spying #Snowden
