The Centre’s timeline for Delhi government to send its administrative and legislative proposals to the L-G is quite unnecessary. It has again triggered confrontation between the two, and will hurt governance. Centre must follow the Supreme Court’s 2018 order and not undermine an elected government, even of a union territory.

RBI keeps its promise on letting retail investors buy bonds. But ease of access is key

RBI has finally kept its promise to allow retail investors to buy government bonds to improve liquidity.

Munawar Faruqui gets bail, now he deserves our collective apology

Thank you, Supreme Court for bail to Munawar Faruqui. But he’s also owed our collective apology. There was never a cause for arrest. Yet trial court and the High Court declined bail. It’s a shame for our judiciary that innocent citizens lose liberty for weeks for jokes they didn’t tell.

US statement on farmer protests shouldn’t bristle India. Look at bigger picture

The US statement on farm laws and protests is not a reason to either celebrate as victory or bemoan as criticism. The two countries enjoy deep, strategic ties and have more critical issues to tackle. India needn’t bristle at what are mere pinpricks, and get distracted from the bigger picture.

  1. The LG should reign, play golf, admire the winter roses in Raj Nivas. The democratically elected CM should rule, guided, mentored by a senior figure who has decades of distinguished civil service experience, much wisdom to share with him. In the larger interests of the citizens of Delhi. It is not as if the domains that are not with the elected government have been glittering in the recent past.

  2. It would undermine the credibility of the Biden administration’s avowed policy of promoting democracy, human rights, individual freedoms all over the world if criticism was reserved only for foes like Russia and China, with silence towards friends. If we had eyes to see, ears to hear, it would have been obvious to all, led by the Foreign Office, that India’s global aura has been dimming. The Sikh diaspora has highlighted this issue, the spikes on the road pain all people of good conscience. As realists, we should also worry how high we figure in the Biden administration’s scheme of things.
