Spread the love           It is not clear why the government wants to retain a 24 percent stake in Air India. Any holding below 26 percent is hardly of any use to a shareholder. Such a shareholder can’t stall any key board decision, including a special resolution or even a name change. There’s no need to mislead […]

Spread the love           Whichever way one looks at the results of by-polls in Rajasthan, this is a clear win for Sachin and a loss for Raje. The Chief Minister has an occasionally uneasy but largely cordial relationship with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Some important leaders of the RSS do not like her. Still, she was, and […]
