The opposition parties’ walkout during Triple Talaq Bill voting in the Lok Sabha, especially after vehemently opposing it, exposes their hypocrisy and lack of conviction. They don’t want to be seen voting against a law promising gender justice but want to please conservative Muslims too. They end up alienating both.

Instead of shunting Subhash Garg, govt must acknowledge problems with the Budget

The Narendra Modi government’s decision to remove the most senior finance ministry bureaucrat Subhash Chandra Garg less than three weeks after the budget appears to be an implicit admission of the misadventures in it. The government must acknowledge and correct its mistakes rather than placing the blame on one official.

  1. Subhash Chandra Garg has now applied for voluntary retirement, a day after he was shifted from Finance ministry.

  2. I would welcome the move for it acknowledges that, Yes, we do have a problem. FS Subhash Garg lacked the refinement and graces which the senior most economic mandarin in the country is expected to possess. His dealings with the RBI and the Governor are analogous to the courtesy the Defence Secretary shows to the armed forces and the three service chiefs. 2. The Budget is just one symbol of India’s public finances and macroeconomic management. It is appraised coolly, professionally by people who wish to invest in India across various formats. In Year Six, there is no honeymoon period. The overwhelming political dominance should not induce any sense of complacency over the economy and the imperative need to move it to sustainably higher growth, to at least now start undertaking the wide ranging reforms that were universally expected in 2014.
