Modi govt@4: NaMo’s foreign diplomacy - One bold stride at a time 26.5.2018 DNA: India
In his four years as Prime Minister, Narendra Modi’s conduct of external affairs was marked by drive and energy. He is the most peripatetic Prime Minister India has ever had.  As of May 2018, with Sochi in Russia, Modi has visited at least 54 countries on 36 foreign trips across six continents. Besides state visits to the P-5 of the United States, China, Russia, the UK and France, Modi has attended a UN General Assembly session and taken active part in a number of multilateral forums. The latter includes summits of SAARC, BRICS, East Asia, G-20, Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), ASEAN-India, CHOGM, India-European Union, World Economic Forum in Davos and the Nuclear Security Summit, apart from the UN Conference on Climate Change in Paris and the founding session of the International Solar Alliance, which was hosted in New Delhi in March.  By any reckoning, that is a lot of travel in 48 months, even if the Prime Minister is his own Foreign Minister, as Modi is. However, he has a competent External ...

Political fallout: BJP faces heat as over dozen districts battle water crisis across Rajasthan 26.5.2018 DNA: India
As mercury continues to rise, heat is intensifying on BJP leaders across Rajasthan. There is water shortage in most parts of the state and protests for water are being witnessed in pockets of over a dozen districts. While monsoon is yet far off, several ruling party legislators have communicated to the chief minister Vasundhara Raje that, if unchecked, water could cause political damage.   There is concern within BJP that has already been badly stung by farmers’ agitation. The underlying sentiment is that — agitations have a tendency of spreading and if the scattered protests continue unchecked, they have the potential to escalate into law and order situation — something they do not desire when elections are round the corner. Water came across as a major problem during various jan samvad held by the chief minister. Matters escalated when Raje faced ire of protesting women demanding water in Sikar. Further, as many as 20 MLAs have told the chief minister that they are facing drinking water crisis in their ...

As monsoon approaches, Amdavadis say height of roads to bring more troubles 26.5.2018 DNA: India
With the monsoons approaching, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has set about fixing the broken roads across the city. However, many residents have complained that after the resurfacing, they are facing problems and it could only lead to more trouble when the rains start. "The roads are fixed and seem smooth but due to their unreasonable height, vehicles are facing a lot of problems. It is very risky to drive two-wheelers near the edges of roads and there is a risk of losing balance," said Nimish Joshi, of Anandnagar. Javed Mansuri from Jamalpur said, "AMC has resurfaced the roads, but owing to that, the height of the road has increased so much that I have to construct a small wall to prevent rain water from coming into my house. Previously, the roads were not as high as they are now." Similar complaints regarding the height of roads have been coming in from other parts of the city too. At many places, dividers which were two feet higher than the streets are now at the same level as the roads. "In ...
