Can’t spell out what happened due to UPA indecision on Rafale: Sitharaman 18.11.2017 The Tribune
Chennai, November 18 Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Saturday slammed the previous UPA government for not taking a decision on the Rafale fighter jet deal for about 10 years and said she could not spell out in detail what happened due to the delay as it involved the nation's security. She said no decision was taken in the matter between 2004 and 2013, during the UPA dispensation after several rounds of discussion. "After being in power for 10 years...you (Congress party-led UPA) went without taking a decision," she said. The minister said she could not spell out in detail about what happened due to the indecision as the issue involved the nation's security. She said after the NDA assumed power in 2014, the inter-governmental route was opted for expeditious procurement of 36 Rafale fighter jets in fly-away condition with France after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's discussions with the Air Force. Stating that the UPA government could not complete the procurement, she said the BJP-led dispensation ...

Zimbabwe protesters begin marching towards Mugabe residence 18.11.2017 The Tribune
HARARE, November 18 Zimbabweans celebrating the expected fall of President Robert Mugabe marched towards his residence in the capital Harare on Saturday, live television pictures showed, as the country prepared to oust its leader of the last 37 years. Hundreds of thousands of people flooded the streets of the capital singing, dancing and hugging soldiers in an outpouring of elation as Mugabe's rule comes to an end. In scenes reminiscent of the downfall of Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu in 1989, men, women and children ran alongside the armoured cars and troops that stepped in this week to oust the only ruler Zimbabwe has known since independence in 1980. The 93-year-old Mugabe has been under house arrest in his lavish 'Blue Roof' compound in Harare, from where he has watched support from his Zanu-PF party, security services and people evaporate in less than three days. Mugabe's nephew, Patrick Zhuwao, told Reuters on Saturday that the elderly leader and his wife were "ready to die for what is ...

Zimbabwe's Prez Robert Mugabe must step down: ruling party 18.11.2017
Harare:  President Robert Mugabe's own ruling ZANU-PF party wants him to step down and plans to hold a rally in Zimbabwe's capital Harare Saturday to make the point. Mr Mugabe, at Zimbabwe's helm since independence from Britain in 1980, faces the starkest challenge ever to his rule after the army seized power on Wednesday, saying it was targeting "criminals" around the nonagenarian leader. ZANU-PF called on Friday for Mr Mugabe to resign, the main state newspaper, The Herald, reported, a clear sign that the aging leader's authority has collapsed after the army takeover. The newspaper said that ZANU-PF branches in all 10 provinces had met and had also called for Mugabe's wife Grace, whose ambitions to succeed her husband triggered the political crisis, to resign from the party. Read: "DisGrace" Mugabe"s ambitions steering Zimbabwe President"s ouster A senior member of ZANU-PF earlier told Reuters the party wanted their long-time president ...

India must be accommodated into NPT as nuclear state: Tewari 18.11.2017 The Tribune
Washington, November 18 The international community must accommodate India into the NPT as a nuclear weapons state, a senior Congress leader has said, citing India’s impeccable track record. Signed on July 1, 1968, the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) came into force on March 5, 1970. The treaty defines nuclear weapons states as those that have built and tested a nuclear device before 1 January 1967. Under the treaty, the US, Russia, the UK, France and China are nuclear-weapons states. India has refused to sign the NPT arguing it is discriminatory. Pakistan, North Korea and Israel are the other countries which have not signed NPT. “The time has come for the international community to seriously think or to accommodate India into the NPT as a nuclear weapons power,” Manish Tewari, Congress spokesperson and former Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting told PTI. Currently a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, a top American think-tank, Tewari mooted the proposal in this ...
