Deposits rise as govt battles cash crunch 18.4.2018 DNA: Mumbai
The finance ministry on Wednesday said that the cash crunch situation faced by some states is being brought under control by restoring the non-functional bank ATMs. However, there is no clarity to the government as to why the shortage of cash has happened. There were reports of ATMs running of of cash in some states including Delhi, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Bihar, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh. On Tuesday, "cash deposits made in the banking system were Rs 5,000-6,000 crore more than the withdrawals made by the customers," ministry sources said.

The figures available with the government show that there has been a mismatch in demand and supply of currency in many states. People also withdrew more ...

Following news reports that he lavished praise on Mayawati, senior Uttar Pradesh government minister Swami Prasad Maurya clarified today he had only pointed to a similarity in the approach towards law and order of the present regime and the one led by the BSP chief, who he alleged was "neck deep in corruption".

We want there should be good governance, she also wanted good governance. There is only one difference that Mayawati was neck deep in corruption, while Adityanath is contributing in making India corruption free," he sought to clarify.

After donating the bell at the temple yesterday, Tuesdays being associated with Lord Hanuman, Bukkal Nawab, a turncoat, who had quit the Samajwadi Party to join the BJP, said he offered prayers there. Commenting on the matter, senior SP leader Ram Govind Chaudhary said, "It is nothing but a publicity stunt. He is hopping from one temple to another to hog media limelight."

 The BJP has set its sight on the 90 seats it had lost in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls as it works to win a clear majority again in 2019, a senior party leader said on Tuesday.  With the BJP likely to fight a united opposition in big, politically crucial states such as Uttar Pradesh, many experts believe the party would find it difficult to repeat its 2014 performance when it had won 282 seats in the 543-member Lok Sabha. The senior party leader told reporters on condition of anonymity that the BJP had targeted a number of seats it had lost in 2014 and was confident of winning 90 of them.
