Rahul Gandhi’s visit to riot-affected areas of Northeast Delhi is a week too late. And it was an exercise in TRP politics and tokenism. Congress was missing on the ground when goons were on rampage. The slothful and seemingly disinterested party isn’t functioning as an effective opposition, thereby weakening democracy.
Companies Act and CSR decisions are long overdue, but move will bring relief to businesses
The Union Cabinet’s decision to further decriminalise the Companies Act and relax CSR provisions has been long overdue.

The heart trembles to think how much unreasoning hatred is embedded in some people.
