🧵I’d the privilege to see 1st hand soo many difficult decisions Hon’ble PM @narendramodi took during Covid under TREMENDOUS UNCERTAINTY. India is lucky that he led us brilliantly during the once-in-a-century pandemic. 1/5
Of course those who lost loved ones during the Delta wave will feel strong emotions & I respect that. But, we’ve to concede we are a population of 1.4 billion with a poor health infrastructure bcos of decades of neglect. And it takes time to fix such neglect. 2/5
Bcos of PM @narendramodi’s leadership, India has emerged #AtmaNirbhar & stronger with tremendous confidence. His decisions on both health & economic sides displayed tremendous statesmanship. If he had worried about criticism, he could not have taken such difficult decisions.👏3/5

Navy helicopter ditches off Mumbai; crew recovered safely.

This marks the first-ever serious acc/ditching of Indian Navy's ALH since commissioning -- an unblemished record of > 2 decades.

Mumbai (INS Shikra) is home to the latest #ALHMk3MR.

Will be following this closely.
All IN & CG ALH are equipped with Emergency Flotation Gear (EFG) for safely ditching in water in case of critical emergency. The EFGs are auto-inflated on water contact, with an emergency override should auto fail. All crew are given exhaustive HUE training at WSTF, Kochi.
Initial reports & pics indicate helicopter floating upright in calm sea on EFGs that operated to intended purpose. Good returns on all those hours of diligent training (simulator, on-type, HUET). BoI must dig deep. Crucial safety info must be shared with all users, esp ICG.

History gets made! 🇮🇳 Happy to announce that the new Vedanta-Foxconn semiconductor plant will be set up in #Gujarat. Vedanta’s landmark investment of ₹1.54 lakh crores will help make India's #Atmanirbhar Silicon Valley a reality. (1/4)
This project will help fulfil Hon'ble PM @narendramodi Ji's vision of creating a robust manufacturing base in India. It will reduce our electronics imports & provide 1 lakh direct skilled jobs to our people...going from job seekers to job creators! (2/4)
My deep gratitude to the #Gujarat Govt & the Union IT Minister, who have helped Vedanta tie things up so quickly. India's #tech ecosystem will thrive, with every state benefiting via the new electronics manufacturing hubs. (3/4) @CMOGuj @Bhupendrapbjp @AshwiniVaishnaw @PMOIndia

Plausible Deniability. A long 🧵 👇


Over the last couple of days, scandalous news of the arrest of a Joint Drug Controller in @CDSCO_INDIA_INF has made waves. While much of the reporting is perfunctory until now, it helps to peel the onion and see how far the stench
of corruption pervades the unholy nexus between the pharmaceutical industry and the DCGI’s office.

Lets start with a few facts, shall we:

A.“CBI officers claimed Bioinnovat Research Services Private Limited had been asked to get regulatory clearance for the Biocon
product. Bioinnovate, in turn, engaged Synergy Network to get the work done, the officers claimed.”…

It is so easy in India to use taxis. From ordering and payment, it is completely touch free, except for touching your phones. It is equally easy to purchase ANYTHING from home, with home deliveries available for E V E R Y T H I N G. This is not the case in Switzerland.
E-commerce transactions is to be experienced ianywhere in India, which is similar to major Western e-commerce markets Canada/ U.S.; certainly not to lagging and sleepy western Europe. There is a plethora of digital wallets available in India, but cumbersome cash still rules in EU
Over a quarter of India's population is aged 14 years or under 34 and this new wave of consumers will soon be able to buy their own mobile devices. Google has highlighted the need for increased talent in the India mobile commerce industry, and a lack of apps.

Given @LogicallyAI’s normalisation of murders of @BJP4indla workers in Bengal, closely coordinated with AltNews & NewsLaundry maybe @GoI_MeitY & @PMOIndia should tell us how @Lyric_Jain managed to get the 2020 Atmanirbhar Award… - CIA Trojan horses in PMO? Image
.remember these awards aren’t simply handed out - you need to be working with government and close contact with the bureaucracy. Who at @PMOIndia vetted them? their foreign funding? their political links? Their local chap Sagar Kaul was liking tweets by separatists. This was ImageImageImageImage
In 2019 & @PMOIndia & @GoI_MeitY awarded them the atmanirbhar award without any due security scrutiny in 2020? Clearly the award vetting is a joke. It is important to know which bureaucrats they deal with. Their story writer works with the Atlantic Council. Remember we had filed ImageImage

Meet Vasanthi
A mother of two
Wife of a farmer
An "iron woman" in her own right
She travels 20-odd kms everyday to town
Where she runs an ironing shop for the last few years

1/n Image
Even before the pandemic, she struggled as her landlady wouldn't permit the use of an electric iron, forcing her to use dirty charcoal

This is time-consuming, smoky, didn't give as good a press as an electric iron & so she struggled to get sufficient customers

She wants to set up a shop elsewhere but can't afford the rent
She wants to establish a viable biz but is trapped in this cycle

So, we're raising money for deposit for a shop, two years of rental and some petty expenses to help her get a fresh start

Are you still using Visa, Master Card or AmEx?

Time to switch to #RuPay for domestic transactions & also for select foreign countries.

Use American cards only for global travel.

Ask your bank to change your cards to RuPay today.

If we are not #Atmanirbhar we are in risk.
Same goes for GooglePay, Apple Pay and even Chinese backed PayTM.

For all your payment needs use UPI exclusively.

India has banned many foreign companies who have Chinese investors so it is about time we tell Indian companies to stop taking funding from 🇨🇳 or 🇺🇸.
India has been sanctioned by West many times. We didn’t feel the pinch then as we were not digital then, now you will feel the pain.

So at least ensure your critical day to day things don’t reply on foreign companies. This goes for your earnings as well if you are YouTuber etc.

1/ Former #Brahmos chief A #SivathanuPillai writes in his book ‘The Path Unexplored’ that army commanders tried their best to sabotage the Brahmos cruise missile - India's most successful weapon. (He doesn't name them but it's the Chandigarh Lobby)
2/Pillai reveals that these senior military commanders wanted to scuttle the #BrahMos project by declaring its performance unsatisfactory. Their plan was to continue India’s dependency on imports, which would result in more kickbacks for middlemen.
3/The #Chandigarh Gang is not exclusively based in Chandigarh, but is only centered there. Its elements exist in different parts of the country. Army chief #GeneralVKSingh broke the back of the Chandigarh Gang, but it continues to survive.

1/7... This "Hub" "Global Hub" is the nonsensical chatter that @NarendraModi & his lackeys like @AshwiniVaishnaw keep peddling as a "Keyword" for NOTHING.. What exactly are you a "global hub" for? Only Falsehoods & Mungerilal blabber..
2/7.. Sitting with dodos of @Timesnow .. all ministers in like Baraatis sing & dance glory to @NarendraModi like nuns assembled at the Vatican.. When in reality.. this "Global hub" nonsense is dropped as Kadi Patha in everything.. Manufacturing, Space, Toys, Empy Blabber..
3/7.. Just some months back.. @NarendraModi held a series of TOYCATHONS... Grandly claiming India can become a "Global toy hub"... His ignorance of production, market size and preferences in India pretty much describe his nonsensical Mungerilal blabber.. #GlobalHubBakwas..

#thread #minimalism a friend had shared this meaningful meme, a picture with the legend, ‘the less you own, the less it owns you’. It was a powerful statement; one that has stayed with me. @jeetsingharya @BastarDistrict @sundar_IPS @rajat4bansal #bastarkibaate #minimalism
There is a lot of talk these days about minimalism, particularly among the neo-rich urban crowd who are burdened with the ‘problem of plenty’. We live in a society that celebrates consumption and accumulation. I myself am a hoarder of all things handmade and beautiful.
As a result, my home feels like a museum and my closet is overflowing with beautiful, hand-woven sarees. But even beauty is bondage. I realise that now, as I take my baby steps on the long road of #अनासक्ती

Dear Finance Minister, cc: @PMOIndia
In the midst of an unprecedented calamity, you have dropped #GST on imports of #COVID-19 vaccines & other items such as medical oxygen

But you added some problematic caveats to restrict such imports

Long Thread.. 1/n…
The notification states this tax exemption will only be for material 'received free of cost for free distribution anywhere in India for COVID relief’
@NITIAayog CEO & Revenue Secy then met State Chief Secretaries & asked them 2 appoint nodal officers to certify such imports 2/n
"..Entities desirous of importing COVID relief material for free distribution may approach State nodal authorities for certification’.
So global donors would need to register with individual States where they wish to route relief material, creating a cornucopia of red tape

Biggest joke enacted by CBI/Courts on Citizen's of India.
These corruption cases.
$$Saini had all the evidence in 2G case, but the accused were not convicted as Judge said CBI did not produce evidence.
Suddenly some court will wake up & summon accused.
Accused will get stay
Accused will approach higher court, get stay on summons, and will drag the case. These cases can potentially dragged on for decades, ex: Jayalalitha - Disproportionate Asset Case - 22yrs.( 6 yrs on Translation of chargesheet)
None of the cases of corruption during UPA era, has even started in the lower court. Everytime there is summons, the accused will go and file some vague reason to stall, courts will accept and adjourning hearing for months together. What has happened to 2G case appeal ?,

20 Indian braves made Supreme sacrifice of their lives at #Galwan to push back an expansionist China at #LAC.
#China remains hostile to India.
#Maharashtra power outage blamed on Chinese hackers.
China yet to pull back from #Depsang.
Yet Rs 300 cr Telecom contract to #Huawei? ImageImage
Is this the 'whole of India' approach being adopted to deal with expansionist forces?
Why continue to give access to China in critical areas like Telecom?
Even if central Govt is to be believed China didn't succeed in #Maharashtra power outage, attempts were made? Even in Delhi
Soldiers make the supreme sacrifice for a strong nation.
Can business & industry not sacrifice profits for a strong nation?
Is this the whole of nation approach to deal with China?
Is this #Atmanirbhar #Bharat?
Profits more important than national interest?

1) Check the five areas which PM @narendramodi highlighted in his #ET interview, as indicators of an Economic revival. His interview is full of facts, figures and optimism. Loved it!

More from his almost three page interview with ET in the following tweets.
2) PM Narendra Modi says: In spite of COVID19 pandemic, India received $35.73 billion FDI between April and August of 2020.

That is 13% higher than the same period in 2019.
3) Modi also said that between 1947 and 2020 (March), India got only 16,000 ventilators in working condition to hospitals.

Now another 50,000 being added in just a matter of months!

India truly changing in an #AtmaNirbhar way during a global pandemic.
