Development should revolve around job creation - RSS July 28, 2016 15:12

A meeting at the Gujarat Bhavan, which began with tea and snacks and ended with a Gujarati dinner had deliberations revolved around job creation, sources said. The meeting was attended by union ministers Arun Jaitley, Radha Mohan Singh, Kalraj Mishra and Nirmala Sitharaman besides BJP president Amit Shah and general secretaries Bhupendra Yadav and Muralidhar Rao. RSS joint general secretary Krishna Gopal, the pointsperson for coordination between the BJP and Sangh, was also present at the meeting.Pope Francis' call for financial reform along ethical lines to turn the economy to benefit all, echoed at the meeting of RSS, government and BJP. The Sangh affiliates said that this is in line with the 'Hindu philosophy' of economic growth. They sought an alternative economic model with a more 'humane' approach, saying the existing one is neither creating employment nor narrowing the rich-poor divide.RSS wings like Swadeshi Jagran Manch, Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh and Bharatiya Kisan Sangh have been critical on some of the economic policies of the Modi government, like opening doors to Foreign Direct Investment (FDI)."In business if there is no ethics you cannot sustain the economy. This is what Pope Francis said. Azim Premji (Wipro Chairman) has said that business leaders need to play a role beyond business," said Vrijesh Upadhyay, national secretary of BMS."We are of the view that the economic growth model should be wage and job oriented. We want not a capital intensive industry but a labour intensive industry. Capital should not go into hands of few," he said.He said that the Hindu philosophy of economic growth factored in ethics to ensure that the rich-poor divide did not widen and underlined the need for focusing on rural economy.BMS was of the view that industry should not be rated by its balance sheet alone, but also by how it has helped in improving quality of life.Sangh's economic, trade union and farmers' wings had aggressively resisted FDI and other liberalisation policies during the Vajpayee regime. During the Modi regime, there has been a regular coordination mechanism for consultations on various policy-related matters.By Premji

GST bill may get passed in the current session July 28, 2016 12:43

There seems to be an all-party consensus on major contentious issues relating to the jumbo indirect tax reform. The proposal of 1 percent inter-state levy that would have negated the benefits of a uniform tax regime has been dropped. The states have been promised with full compensation for likely losses in the first five years and both the Congress party and BJP have largely agreed to accommodate the GST rate in the Bill and not in the constitution to legally ring-fence the rate.There was also broad agreement on the principle that the ordinary businessman and the common tax man will benefit from introduction of GST by way of lower tax rates while the states will not face any loss of revenue, West Bengal Finance Minister and the panel chairman Amit Mitra said"As you know that no tax rates are provided in the Constitution. It was discussed and conclusion reached that Union Finance Minister will communicate to other parties. He will explain it to them that it can't come in Constitutional Amendment but it can come in GST Bill or GST Act," Mitra said.“All states were of the view that the tax rates put forward by the Chief Economic Advisor are not acceptable. There was no consensus on what the rate should be," Kerala finance minister Thomas Isaac said.With the Congress easing up, the politics of GST is almost reduced to the remaining few dissenters such as J Jailalithaa’s AIADMK and BSP. The Left parties, who had earlier disagreed with the Bill, seem to have returned to the consensus path. Most other regional parties are on the pro-GST side.Given that there are major changes done in the Bill, it has to again go back to the Lok Sabha after the Upper House passes it. Passing the GST hurdle will significantly help to address India’s reform-jinx and help the country consolidate its position among emerging economies, offering clarity on the tax regime to the investors. GST is only a beginning step in the long road to reform overhaul.By Premji

Aravind Kejriwal alleges Modi will kill him July 28, 2016 11:40

In a bizare video Kejriwal blames Modi for the criminal cases against his MLAs by the victims of his MLAs illegal activities including molestation of woman. Due to the activities against woman by the AAP MLAs, woman are feeling unsafe in Delhi under the rule of AAP. This has created public uproar and lots of bad name for AAP. In this circumstances Delhi Chief Minister and AAP leader has released a video in the youtube blaming Modi for everything.In his latest attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said in a video that people from the Modi government may try to get him killed. "There is a daman chakra (cycle of domination) over the Aam Aadmi Party. People are tyring to crush the Aam Aadmi Party," Kejriwal said."I want to tell everyone today that it is a very critical time. In the times to come, this daman is going to turn very dirty. They (the Modi government) can go to any extent. They can try to kill us. They can try to kill me. They can do anything," said the Delhi CM."Going to jail is a very small thing. We will have to take it for granted that all our MLAs will have to go to jail. Apart from imprisonment, anything can happen to us," he said. "If you are ready to face all the difficulties, then support us," he said. “He (Modi) can go to any extent and may get us killed. He may get me killed as well. Talk to your families and see if you are ready for the ultimate sacrifice. All the MLAs will anyway have to go to jail. If you are ready, then stay with us or if you have weaknesses, then leave,” he said.With his 11th MLA facing IT raids, Kejriwal mounted a severe attack on the Centre, wondering whether the “country is in safe hands” and suspecting that “Modiji, in his frustration, is crushing political opponents with brute force”.Referring to the series of arrests of AAP MLAs as well as the feared disqualification of 21 legislators for holding ‘office of profit’, Kejriwal said Modi is the “mastermind” of the “cycle of oppression” against AAP and that he is hell bent on “destroying AAP”. "Kejriwal's comments are shameful. We condemn them. He used to harp on morals and spoke against corruption but has been unmasked. He now stands for protecting his corrupt colleagues, many of whom are involved in various crimes, including trying to cause riots to grab power. He should know that democracy is governed by the rule of law and if anybody violates them, the law will act," BJP national secretary Shrikant Sharma said.By Premji

Barack Obama endorses Clinton July 28, 2016 10:37

US President Barack Obama urged Democrats to carry onetime rival Hillary Clinton to victory in November as America's first woman president, while savaging her Republican opponent Donald Trump for fueling hate and division. Obama offered a comprehensive endorsement of his first secretary of state as the one person uniquely qualified to succeed him.Obama shared a warm embrace with his would-be successor, capping an all-star night that included appearances by Vice President Joe Biden, Clinton's running mate Tim Kaine and independent Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York.“You know, nothing truly prepares you for the demands of the Oval Office,” Mr. Obama told the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. “Until you’ve sat at that desk, you don’t know what it’s like to manage a global crisis or send young people to war.”“But Hillary’s been in the room; she’s been part of those decisions... Even in the midst of crisis, she listens to people and keeps her cool, and treats everybody with respect. And no matter how daunting the odds, no matter how much people try to knock her down, she never, ever quits.”"I can say with confidence there has never been a man or a woman -- not me, not Bill (Clinton), nobody -- more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of America," Obama said."I am more optimistic about the future of America than ever before," Obama told the audience.Obama belittled the Republican flag-bearer as having no economic or foreign policy plans. "Not really a facts guy either," he sneered."Does anyone really believe that a guy who's spent his 70 years on this Earth showing no regard for working people is suddenly going to be your champion? Your voice? If so, you should vote for him," Obama said."But if you're someone who's truly concerned about paying your bills, and seeing the economy grow and creating more opportunity for everybody, then the choice isn't even close," he added."Our strength, our greatness does not depend on Donald Trump. In fact, it doesn't depend on any one person, and that in the end may be the biggest difference in this election -- the meaning of our democracy.""Ronald Reagan called America a shining city on a hill," Obama recalled. "Donald Trump calls it a divided crime scene that only he can fix.""We're going to carry Hillary to victory this fall, because that's what the moment demands," Obama said to loud cheers and applause."The Democratic Party is in good hands."By Premji
