Tejashwi Yadav said that Modi and the entire BJP are desperate to win the Gujarat Assembly polls, which they appear to have already lost if reports of anger among people against the BJP that is in power for 22 years there is anything to go by.

Tejashwi Yadav said his RJD party would organise a protest against demonetisation on 8 November across Bihar to give voice to the common people hit hard by the move.

The World Bank Ease of Doing Business 2018 report on Tuesday said India has jumped 30 places to the 100th rank among 190 countries.
