Spread the love           UAE ambassador to India Ahmed Albanna confirms that no aid offer of Rs 700 crore was made by the UAE. This places the Vijayan government in Kerala, the state with the communists in power, in an untenable position. The CM, who jumped the gun, also made others to jump the gun, including the […]

Spread the love           The ILO report estimates that the real average daily wages in India almost doubled between 1993–94 and 2011–12 but fails to mention that the Indian GDP quadrupled between 1991 and 2011.

Spread the love           PM Modi’s announcements of building toilets, Ayushman Bharat, and opening up of more AIIMS do not fulfill the requirements for universal comprehensive health care to our citizens. The social determinants of health, like supply of clean drinking water, adequate sanitation system, proper housing, nutrition and sufficient wages to meet the day to day […]

Spread the love           Told by Nehru when young that he will become PM one day, Vajpayee never looked far for a role model. Vajpayee wept “like a child” at Nehru’s death, says journalist Sharma. But Vajpayee forgot that the BJP cannot be Congress and the Congress vice versa. The hard truth is the right wing base […]

Mexican politicians of all stripes resolutely refused and denounced him. AMLO is no fan of Trump’s wall, either. Nor are organised labor […]
