was a member told The Indian Express “This is very alarming We feel extremely helpless We often run awareness campaigns for sex workers to ensure that they do not fall into the trap of babus who claim to love them and lure them by assuring marriage These people just use them and earn money We have our restrictions too We cannot intervene too much because that’s their personal life There have been instances where girls have been brutally attacked by these babus It’s sad that we lost her Police must arrest the accused at the earliest” In November last year another woman who was one of the first

straight series victory of the summer through half-centuries by captain Joe Root (72) Dawid Malan (61) Ben Stokes (58) Moeen Ali (84) and Chris Woakes (61 not out) Although none of them went on to dominate the innings with a century the English batsmen put together a series of partnerships to fight back from a 169-run first innings deficit They ultimately took the game away from the West Indians after tea After being in control West Indies is now up against it and needs the second-highest total to win a test at Headingley and the highest since Don Bradman’s Australia team made 404-3

Service | Published: June 22 2015 12:00 am Last week saw the Sensex rise 891 points after hitting an eight-month low of 26307 the previous Friday Related News There is a striking divergence of monetary policy dilemmas facing the US Federal Reserve and the Reserve Bank of India today Fed chair Janet Yellen knows that the US central bank’s policy rate at near zero levels since December 2008 would need to be raised at some point But before that she wants more “decisive evidence” of sustained economic recovery and improved labour conditions besides “reasonable confidence” about inflation rising from zero to the targeted 2 per cent over the medium term It is quite the opposite with the RBI which has refrained from cutting policy rates beyond homeopathic doses of 25 basis points (bps) given its greater worry over CPI inflation overshooting the target of 4 per cent for 2016-17 In both cases the criticism is about their being behind the curve — the former in underestimating the dangers from a prolonged ultra-cheap money policy and the latter in not recognising the depth of the ongoing slowdown Last week saw the Sensex rise 891 points after hitting an eight-month low of 26307 the previous Friday Much of this was a relief rally — on account of the Fed’s decision not to hike rates on Wednesday combined with the monsoon’s unexpectedly good performance so far and the government only moderately increasing minimum support prices of crops which many believe may embolden the RBI to undertake more aggressive monetary easing Such optimism is probably overdone While the country may have received 16 per cent surplus rainfall till now the fact is that the four-month monsoon season has just begun From an agricultural perspective it is the rains in July and August that really matter more than June How the monsoon fares in those two months — the met department’s forecasts aren’t too rosy — would decide the course of food inflation and rural incomes in the coming months Likewise it is foolhardy to imagine the Fed putting off interest rate hikes for too long Even if that may not happen in say September and the increases won’t be sharp one has to be prepared for its inevitability and resulting impact on fund flows to emerging markets Rather than clutching at straws it would be prudent for both investors and policymakers to get real The overwhelming truth before us is that corporate earnings are still weak and there are simply no investments happening on the ground With India Inc having neither the resources nor the stomach to invest now the government has no alternative but to take up the slack — through large-scale redirection of expenditures from subsidies and wasteful current consumption The RBI too should realise that minus 2 per cent wholesale inflation for four consecutive months warrants repo rate reductions by full percentage points not mere bps For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsVienna: US Secretary of State John Kerry warned today it was too soon to tell if tough negotiations with Iran on a deal curtailing its nuclear programme will succeed On the eve of Tuesday’s deadline which

to sensitive military sites where nuclear research may have been happening Global powers — Britain China France Germany Russia and the United States — are seeking to end a 12-year standoff with Iran over its suspect nuclear programme After 20 months of intense talks which have criss-crossed the globe the parties have set a Tuesday deadline for a final accord with several countries saying they are prepared to walk away if Iran cannot meet their demands Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was back in Tehran after leaving Vienna late yesterday apparently to consult with the top Islamic

From abortion to energy to climate change and personal investments, The report estimates that such an alarming rate of depletion may be because of the state’s agricultural practices.Of all the sown land in the state almost 32 percent is sown with rice Look at it from another angle almost 12 percent of the state’s total area is just rice crop Rice crop is extremely sensitive to water shortages Farmers usually aim to have flooded conditions in their field to ensure the cultivation of the crop According to another report inThe Hindu about 5000 litres of water is required to produce just one

till then locked in an impasse Written by Karan Thapar | Updated: December 18 2015 10:39 am Congress party Vice President Rahul Gandhi Related News Is Rahul Gandhi justified in claimingthat the National Herald case is “100 per cent pure political vendetta coming out of the prime minister’s office” or is he both factually wrong and prima facie guilty of casting unwarranted aspersions on the integrity and credibility of the judiciary I have no doubt about the answer but let’s arrive atit systematically First the facts The case was filed by Subramanian Swamy in January 2013 — 16 months before the BJP came to power So neither Narendra Modi nor the PMO could have been involved Second at the time of filing the case Swamy was not a BJP member He joined seven months later in August 2013 Unless Gandhi knows something we don’t it’s hard to link Modi the PMO or the BJP to the initiation of the case After Swamy went to court a trial judge assessed there was a case to answer and issued summons The Gandhis sought to have these stayed and the case quashed but the Delhi High Court rejected their petition In his order of December 7 Justice Sunil Gaur questioned “the impropriety of extending interest-free loans” to Associated Journals Limited (AJL) by the Congress when the funds come largely from public donations as well as the assignment of the Rs 90 crore of debt to Young Indian when it could easily have been repaid from AJL’s assets Justice Gaur said “all this smacks of criminality” has “a fraudulent flavour” and therefore “needs to be properly looked into” Now when two separate judges exercising their judicial minds come to this conclusion how can you call it political vendetta The Congress claims its charge of political vendetta is not a comment on the courts but on the fact that Modi removed the head of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) because he closed the National Herald file and then had it re-opened by his successor Once again the facts don’t seem to support this Finance Minister Arun Jaitley under whom the head of the ED serves has said no decision has been taken or notice served or file opened by the ED in this matter I doubt he would lie because that could so easily be found out As regards removing the head of the ED the truth is that Rajan Katoch was on his third extension after being promoted to the position of secretary in the department of heavy industry For a year he had held the two jobs concurrently If at this stage the government decided a new ED chief was needed and Katoch should focus on his responsibilities in the department of heavy industry can you call that “removal” The telling point is that all of this happened in August At the time Gandhi did not complain of political vendetta But 24 hours after the Delhi High Court order he started making the charge Doesn’t that suggest he had the judicial decision in mind and not the alleged re-opening of an ED file or the transfer of its chief In fact I suspect the ED and Katoch were dredged-up to provide a feeble excuse or possibly cover for Gandhi’s thoughtless and inexcusable accusation Of course both the trial and high court could be wrong in holding that there is a case to answer Additionally Justice Gaur’s order may contain opinions or conclusions that are unsupported by evidence or even the law But that’s not political vendetta That would be judicial error or bad judgement As someone who hopes to be PM one day it’s time the young Gandhi learnt the difference The writer is a senior journalistbased in Delhi For all the latest Opinion News

impunity said a Pakistani daily which added that the need for India to improve on the rights of its minorities is similar to the situation in Pakistan PM Narendra Modi AFP An editorial "Rising intolerance" in The Nation on Monday said that India’s denial of visas for a delegation from the US government agency charged with monitoring international religious freedom has raised many eyebrows in the international sphere "The move is indicative of the problems still persisting beneath the surface of a state looking to establish itself as a power on the international stage The biggest democratic nation serves no benefit to its people if fundamental freedoms such as the one to practice religion are not protected" it said It said that after 34 lawmakers from the US sent a letter to the government to make India a more pluralistic society and cited the ‘beef ban’ and the failure to register Sikhism as a separate religion as obstacles to more religious freedom "this move is likely to pose uncomfortable questions to Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi" It noted that the Indian embassy in Washington has not responded to a request for comment and added: "The obvious implication is that the government has something to hide after increasing criticism about the way the JNU affair was handled" "While not directly a religious issue the reaction of the Modi regime to the protests was extreme to say the least The need to suppress any dissent is not conducive to a democratic environment and only breeds greater contempt for the government" the daily said The editorial went on to say that "India has long struggled to protect minority religious communities or provide justice when crimes occur creating a climate of impunity" "The need for India to improve on the rights of its minorities is similar to the situation in Pakistan; and if both neighbours were to allow more religious freedom the enmity between the two – centered on an atmosphere created by religious nationalism – could decrease" It observed that the global environment is currently heading in the wrong direction with increased suspicion and hostility from those that ascribe to other belief systems "This needs
