Gharuan Police Station SHO Jatin Kapoor reached the spot and controlled the situation. Meanwhile, Mahant Balbir Nath and Shiv Sena leaders said they had met the officials concerned ...

Tribune News Service Ludhiana, June 20 Holding Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government responsible for abrupt increase in prices of petrol and diesel, the district unit of the Communist Party of India held a demonstration at the railway station. Various speakers said the RSS controlled BJP government at the Center has no concern for the problems related to a comman man. In 2014 the BJP had held semi-naked protests on the issue of price rise against the previous government. At that time petrol price was Rs 71 per liter.

Despite crude falling down in international market the price of petrol and diesel has increased to Rs 85 per liter.

All this is being done to give doles to the Ambanis ...

The Adviser who called his boss ‘Minister’ 21.6.2018 The Tribune
Rajeev Jayaswal Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian’s departure was not unexpected. In India, populism overshadows economic policies, particularly at the cusp of an election year. Now that the Union Government has entered the crucial phase of its five-year term where voters’ gratification precedes fiscal prudence, capable economists often opt for the comforts of campus teaching over making compromises at the cost of the economy. Although the exit was imminent, it also turned out to be graceful.  Subramanian sought leave from the cares of the Finance Ministry and his boss Arun Jaitley was happy to make it honourable; an indicator of Jaitley’s appreciation to one of his key aides and the great personal equation they shared. Two other prominent US-educated economists — Raghuram Rajan and Arvind Panagariya — were not that lucky. The three accomplished economists left the Indian government, one by one, in the past three years — Rajan in 2016, Panagariya in 2017 and now Subramanian. They had contributed ...
