Let the people know the facts

Who tried to sabotage Chinese President Xi Jinping’s India visit?

It is intriguing that the ‘intrusion’ factor went up only when the economic component of the relationship between the two countries gained ascendancy. The change in global pattern of arms market has also contributed to the ‘intrusion’ factor. It may be mentioned that since 2011, India has replaced China as the largest arms importer. As the arms industry has been shifting its principal market focus on India so has been the corresponding increase in the ‘threat from China lobby’. It is the same lobby, which never fails to insult India’s indigenous efforts in arms manufacture.

Antony desiccated the soul of Armed Forces

If Manmohan Singh delivered to his political benefactor and mentor by way of CWG, Coal and 2G; Mr Antony did not lag behind. Never before in the history of India, the three services were targeted in the manner in which it was done during Mr Antony’s stewardship of the Ministry of Defence. Never in independent India had the arms lobby become so brazen and criminal that it dared to manipulate ‘chain of succession’ of service chiefs.

Can Zawahiri add to communal cauldron already full?

There is an expression in Hindi, “Soney pey suhaga”, suhaga being the powder which makes gold shine. In a volatile social situation, where communal polarization is an electoral requirement until key state elections are out of the way, the Zawahiri slogan may have some short term advantages for the ruling party. It is perverse to say so but that is the way it is.

2G Scam: CBI chief Ranjit Sinha in the dock for trying to save corporates?

Central Bureau of Investigation director Ranjit Sinha is under fire for allegedly attempting to save corporates names in the 2G Spectrum Scam. The CBI chief is also accused of allegedly shunting out Santosh Rastogi, a DIG-rank CBI officer, of the investigation of all 2G spectrum scam matters.

PMO, Rajnath Singh and rumours

The controversy surrounding Rajnath Singh and his son being called by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and confronted with evidence of “improper conduct” is refusing to die down. The details of the rumoured incident were already being discussed in the power circles even before the media started reporting about it.

The difficult task of finding friends and foes in West Asia

It would be useful for Sushma Swaraj to recall the goings on in Atal Behari Vajpayee’s cabinet. L.K. Advani and Jaswant Singh had agreed to send Indian troops to govern the Kurdish North of Iraq, exactly the region the Americans have now returned to in military formation.
