Prasar Bharati’s veiled threat to PTI to put nationalism ahead of journalism is outrageous. The job of a credible news service is to report the news, irrespective of whether the source is considered a friend or foe in one place or the other. Prasar Bharati has shamed its founding ideals.

Modi’s Atmanirbhar call is getting lost in translation, his ministers are talking in different voices

PM Narendra Modi’s call for ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ is getting lost in translation, with ministers talking in different voices about trade and commerce with China. India can’t afford any ambiguity, especially because its post-Covid economic path is something the world is keenly watching. Self-reliance can’t be a mere political slogan.

  1. There was a time when India – like many other developing countries – required foreign aid. That included shipments of PL 480 wheat from the United States. That was a time when we yearned for Self reliance, which for me took the form of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Today’s India has been self reliant since before the median Indian was born. 2. We should now think of self reliance in terms of an economy that still requires foreign capital and technology but which can service all its obligations without default, which has been the proud record so far. In the realm of foreign policy and national security, a country that is not a camp follower, pursues strategic autonomy, knowing who its friends and adversaries are. 3. Cutting through the clutter, self reliance should not be code for import substitution. Opting out of RCEP was a painful moment for the economy and the Act East component of foreign policy. The post Covid global economy will not be kind to the also rans.

  2. Shri Vir Sanghvi has tweeted : I have yet to meet a single person who trusts Doordarshan news or has any faith in Parasar Bharati’s commitment to the truth. Unclear what useful purpose is served by sustaining – at huge cost to the taxpayers – this edifice of pure propaganda. For that matter, a similar sweeping statement could also be made for the Godi media.
