From India's development to condemning rape, here are the top quotes from PM Modi's I-Day speech 15.8.2018 DNA: India
  In his last Independence Day address ahead of the next Lok Sabha elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today spoke at length about the progress India has made under his government and asserted that its rise is being hailed by the world. Modi drew a comparison between the situation in 2013 and how things stand today and said if the pace of the UPA government's last year was maintained, it would have taken decades, centuries and generations to build as many toilets, distribute as many LPG connections among the poor and lay down as much optical fibre as his government has done.

Harvey Weinstein must face British actress's sex trafficking lawsuit, judge rules 14.8.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Movie producer Harvey Weinstein must face a civil lawsuit by a British actress who has accused him of violating sex trafficking laws by inviting her to a hotel room in France and sexually assaulting her, a federal judge ruled on Tuesday. U.S. District Judge Robert Sweet in Manhattan on Tuesday denied Weinstein's motion to dismiss the lawsuit, which was filed last year by Kadian Noble. The judge said that while the case was "not an archetypal sex trafficking action, the allegations plausibly establish" that Weinstein violated the federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act. Lawyers for Weinstein and Noble could not immediately be reached for comment. Noble is one of more than 70 women, mostly young actresses and other women employed in the movie business, who have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct, including rape, in a series of incidents dating back decades. Weinstein , who was one of the most powerful figures in Hollywood before the accusations surfaced in October, is separately facing criminal rape ...

Politics over crime perverse: PM Narendra Modi 13.8.2018 DNA: Popular News
Reducing cases of crime against women and lynching to mere statistics for politics is a "great travesty", and shows a "perverse mindset", Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said in an interview with ANI. "Let there be no doubts about the will of my government to implement the rule of law in its true letter and spirit," he said. He said even a single incident is one too many and deeply unfortunate. "Everyone should rise above politics to ensure peace and unity in our society," he said. PM Modi tore into his rivals when the news agency sought his comments on the Opposition that has raised cases of rape and lynching, and accused him of being silent on them. "It would be a great travesty to reduce these incidents to mere statistics and then indulge in politics over them. That shows a kind of perverse mindset that looks at violence and criminality as something to be milked, instead of unitedly opposing," the PM said in the e-mail interview.
