New CWC shows Congress still unwilling to bet on younger lot 20.7.2018 DNA: India
When during a plenary session in March Congress president Rahul Gandhi said that he would  ‘drag talented youngsters to the stage’, it must have had the young lot flying high. Four months hence, it seems Rahul had a change of heart as he formed Congress Working Committee (CWC) that has seasoned leaders.  The highest decision-making body of the party has incorporated 23 CWC members that has, barring Rahul, everyone above 50 years of age.  The panel has nearly 70 per cent leaders who have crossed 60s and 70s.

Farmer issues not new, but govt doing best, says Suresh Prabhu 9.7.2018 DNA: Money
Reacting to statements of TMC leaders about the well-being of farmers in Bengal, Union Commerce and Industries Minister Suresh Prabhu said that the farmers across the country were reaping benefits of welfare schemes implemented by the Central government.
