Time the RBI moved afresh on bankruptcy (The Economic Times)

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) should swiftly come out with its revised directive on the resolution of stressed assets, given that the country direly needs the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) to restore the health of the financial system.

Unseeing The Wave (The Indian Express)

Written by Coomi Kapoor Even after exit polls indicate near-unanimously that Narendra Modi will be back, some people refuse to read the writing on the wall. When it comes to elections, experts and politicians often tend to wear blinkers. Some poll watchers base their assumptions on issues which may be irrelevant on the ground. During...

A one-sided justice (The Indian Express)

Written by Madan B Lokur Eleanor Roosevelt said: “Justice cannot be for one side alone, but must be for both.” Was justice done to the Supreme Court staffer who made two allegations on affidavit — first of unwanted physical contact by the Chief Justice of India (CJI) and second, of victimisation?

Dear Yogendra, I disagree (The Indian Express)

Written by Suhas Palshikar Yogendra Yadav’s claim, that the Congress needs to die so that the way for a new politics may be cleared, calls for a response.

Modi has brought into practice a style of one-way communication: Giving out messages (The Indian Express)

Written by Suhas Palshikar Last Friday’s dud press conference by Narendra Modi-Amit Shah might be seen as yet more proof that the prime minister doesn’t face the media impromptu.

Written by Yogendra Yadav My remark on a TV show, that the “Congress must die”, has triggered a debate, perhaps somewhat prematurely, on the role of the country’s principal Opposition party in the times to come.

The Huawei ban should make India strengthen its tech supply chain (Hindustan Times)

While common in the days of the East India Company, corporations these days rarely wage war against governments. Hence the curiosity over the defiant statement of Chinese telecom hardware giant, Huawei, that the United States “underestimates its strength” in its imposition of sanctions on the firm’s 5G equipment.

India, Japan and Sri Lanka have jointly agreed to develop the Colombo port, according to a report in Nikkei Asian Review on Monday.

Let’s not miss this opportunity to revive ‘Make in India’ (Livemint)

Vivan Sharan India’s next government is poised to inherit a troubled economy. Several indicators point to a reduction in demand, including for packaged consumer goods and two-wheelers which had earlier seen consistent growth. Conscientious policymakers have consequently begun to highlight that this lack of demand is a symptom of a deeper malaise—namely, lack of income...
