J&K polls this year, no compromise on terror: Amit Shah

The home minister, in his reply, blamed the Congress for the situation in the state. On the one hand, the Congress accuses the BJP of trampling on democracy in J&K, and, on the other, when it was in charge, it imposed Article 356 (President’s rule) 93 times out of the 126 times it has been invoked in the state, Shah said.

Administrative reforms not possible without support from the top

India needs to mainstream the process of administrative reform through a permanent, empowered Good Governance Authority, headed by the Prime Minister himself and serviced by the NITI Aayog or the Department of Administrative Reforms.
Various attempts have been made over the years to reform administration. Two Administrative Reforms Commissions have made hundreds of recommendations. A number of committees, task forces and the like have made their own contributions.There have been experiments,too, most of which have flourished over short periods of time and then faded away(HT)

The new India born from Modi’s mandate

Modi’s admirers claim this is a truly indigenous vision of India. Nehru’s, they say, was elite and western. Perhaps, though I’m not sure I agree.
