Parrikar wins trust vote March 16, 2017 13:05

After the assembly elections Goa has given a fractured verdict with no one having absolute majority to form a government. In a swift action BJP has ensured teh support of other parties and Manohar Parrikar who was the Union Defence Minister resigned and took charge as the Chief Minister of Goa. Congress as usual was fighting for the leadership and missed the chance to garner support from other parties, even when they are the largest party. They ridiculed themselves by approaching the Supreme court to stop Parrikar from swearing in but the apex court has dismissed the plea. The Apex court has ordered for the floor test by Thursday. Today after the oath taking of the newly elected MLAs, the floor test is conducted and the Parrikar government has won the trust votes with 22 in favour. This is one votes more than what is expected. BJP has added one more state into their kitty, while Congress has lost a good chance due to poor floor management. With this Congress Mukt Bharath is gaining momentum. By Premji

India fast-tracks hydro projects in disputed Kashmir, much to the anxiety of Pakistan March 16, 2017 12:11

For the development of Jammu and Kashmir, India has fast-tracked the hydropower projects worth $15 billion in Kashmir in the recent months, ignoring the warnings from Islamabad that power stations on rivers flowing into Pakistan will disrupt water supplies. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had suggested last year that sharing the waterways could be conditional on Pakistan clamping down on anti-India militants. "I say the way you look at these projects, it is not purely a hydro project. Broaden it to a strategic water management, border management problem, and then you put in money," said Pradeep Kumar Pujari, the top ranking official in the power ministry. Pakistan's foreign ministry spokesman, Nafees Zakaria, said that he would confer with the Ministry of Water and Power on the proposed Indian projects. He noted that India would be attending a regular meeting of the Indus Commission later this month in Lahore. "It seems that finally India has realized the importance of this mechanism under the IWT (Indus Waters Treaty) for resolving water disputes related to the Indus water and its tributaries." "We have developed barely one-sixth of the hydropower capacity potential in the state in the last 50 years," the senior official at the Water Resources Ministry said. "Then one fine morning, you see we cleared six to seven projects in three months; it definitely raises concern in Pakistan." "The cumulative effect of these projects could give India the ability to store enough water to limit the supply to Pakistan at crucial moments in the growing season," A 2011 report by the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations said.

BJP MP Subramanian Swamy had said that the economic affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das should be removed as he is favouring the former UPA minister. “The Income Tax investigation wing of Chennai had found and compiled the huge illegal investments abroad and established his (Chidambaram) illegal secret bank accounts. The report was submitted six months ago to the Ministry of Finance but no action however followed because of certain senior officials owing allegiance to Chidambaram in the Ministry have blocked further action and are preventing honest officers from doing their duty” said Swamy. “The big house in Cambridge belongs to the Chidambaram family as per the documents seized by IT, but nobody declared the source of income for its acquisition is a grave illegality. Chidambaram and his entire familly are guilty under the Prevention of Corruption Act and Money Laundering Act. Almost 15 percent of land in Bangalore is owned by this single family. They should be arrested immediately, the Prime Minister should intervene and remove the Chidambaram friendly officers from the ministry of finance” Swamy added. Swamy has said in his letter to Prime Minister that the documents submitted in the report by the IT department states that Karthi has allegedly took commission from the companies in Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) deals pending with his father at the time he was Finance Minister.
