    Responding to the reports of speculations that mid-term polls could take place in state following farmers' stir for loan waiver, the chief minister said if someone wants to impel the BJP to go for mid-term polls, he is confident that the BJP will be able to form the government again.

  • Why BJP government’s move to paint the doors of the poor in Dausa district is absurd

    Doors Of The Poor In Dausa District

The doors now read “I am poor…I get ration” and this serves as an ‘eligibility’ to get subsidized Ration. This, for obvious reasons, has sparked a lot of controversy among social activists and the opposition has pooled in for political mileage.

  • Why the farmers’ protests everywhere is something to worry about

    Padmini Ramesh

    Starting from the Mandsaur protests in Madhya Pradesh  in the beginning of this month, there has been a series of farmers’ protests propping up across the country with the latest being yesterday’s protest in Punjab. It would be irrational to assume that this rising anger and restlessness among the farmers across the country is simply because they want to keep up with the Mandsaur protests. Rather, the Mandsaur protests could be viewed as the tipping point of this crack down by the farming community- a distressed farming community with mounting debts, poor marketing facilities, unable to get competitive remuneration for their produce; the recent cash crunch post demonetization only worsening their problems. With the inflation rate falling short of the target of 4% implying fall in food prices, a surge in the rates of petrol and diesel increasing the transportation costs and the new notification by the centre banning the sale of cattle and live stock in animal markets for slaughter purposes, the situation had to reach this stage.
