Sharad Pawar takes U-turn, slams Narendra Modi for Gujarat riots calling him anti-inclusive 22.2.2014 DNA: Health
NCP chief Sharad Pawar, who had recently deprecated Narendra Modi's condemnation over Gujarat riots, today took a U-turn and targeted BJP's PM candidate for "mass murder", drawing sharp criticism from the opposition party. "The Chief Minister of a neighbouring state speaks about his development agenda...What is development?...Is it bringing all-round development in the lives of the poor and bringing smile on their faces? "They speak of changing the face of the country but the entire country has seen how mass murders took place," Pawar said addressing a meeting to discuss the status of minorities, without naming Modi. Pawar slammed Modi's development model and accused him of ignoring certain sections of the society. "These people are asking for complete power... but their attitude is to ignore certain sections of the society," Pawar, Union Agriculture Minister, said. Pawar had recently said there was no need for a debate on the 2002 Gujarat ...

Narendra Modi: China must drop mindset of expansionism over Arunachal Pradesh 22.2.2014 DNA: Health
Narendra Modi, the leading candidate to be India's next prime minister after a forthcoming election, declared the disputed territory of Arunachal Pradesh an integral part of India on Saturday and urged China to abandon its "mindset of expansion". India and China fought a brief border war in 1962. The nuclear-armed neighbours signed a pact in October to ensure that differences on their shared border do not spark a confrontation. "No power on earth can snatch away Arunachal Pradesh," Modi, donning the region's traditional headdress and jacket, was shown on television saying on a campaign stop to the state. "Times have changed. The world does not welcome the mindset of expansion in today's times. China will also have to leave behind its mindset of expansion." India regularly holds elections in Arunachal Pradesh, which lies in a remote eastern stretch of the Himalayas and has been administered as part of the Indian state for decades. China ...

Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych leaves capital, his regime on verge of collapse 22.2.2014 DNA: Health
The regime of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych appeared close to collapse on Saturday as the Opposition took control of central Kiev and key government and parliament positions. An emerging power vacuum gripped the charred heart of the capital a day after Yanukovych and his political rivals signed a Western-brokered peace deal to end the ex-Soviet nation's worst crisis since independence from Moscow in 1991. Yanukovych meanwhile left the capital for his base of eastern support in Kharkiv. Opposition lawmakers had earlier on Saturday swapped rumours that the embattled president had fled Ukraine, but presidential adviser Hanna Herman told AFP that "the president continues to perform his constitutional functions". "He flew to Kharkiv on Friday," Herman said by telephone. "While there, he will meet voters and make a local television appearance." Key government buildings were without police protection and baton-armed protesters dressed in military ...
