20 years ago my father #KRMalkani had said in an interview that Nepal wanted to accede to India, which was turned down by Nehru. This raised a storm - Nepal was offended and GoI distanced itself from the remark. My father had to withdraw his remark.…
Late #PranabMukherjee's just-released book admits to exactly the same offer by Nepal! Interestingly, there's no protest by Nepal now. And no one in India is denying it or distancing themselves from the late President's statement.…
Well-known media actors had questioned my father - in unflattering terms! At least one of them is still around, but not uttering a word about this "controversial" statement. Stmt is the same, the people who stated them are different, as are the political parties they belonged to.

Apart from fact that late @arunjaitley had said court/arbitration awards would be respected as solutions to the @INCIndia retro-tax, Cairn case was examined by govt on many occasions prior to late #PranabMukherjee's retro tax, and issue of tax dues never raised Image
Delhi HC ruled against this last year,but taxman said Swiss firm Xstrata’s arbitration award against Dalmia Bharat was a 'windfall gain', as in lotteries, betting etc Was taxman admitting enforcing arbitration awards in India is a matter of luck, a lottery? Image
Unfortunate that India has challenged @VodafoneGroup arbitration award.
Confirms India has no respect for global arbitration & that contracts have ZERO sanctity @narendramodi
And why did late @arunjaitley promise that he would go by what courts/tribunals ruled on the cases?

MASSIVE WIN for @CairnEnergy though the markets seem to be confusing this with @CairnOilandGas which is a @VedantaLimited firm and had bought CairnEnergy's India business
Now to see if @narendramodi govt will pay $1.2bn damages
India's CREDIBILITY at stake
As in the @VodafoneGroup case, in the @CairnEnergy case too, the award was unanimous
that means even the arbitrator that the Indian government nominated voted against India
Apart from fact that late @arunjaitley had said court/arbitration awards would b respected as solutions 2 @INCIndia retro-tax, Cairn case was examined by govt on many occasions prior to late #PranabMukherjee's retro tax, and issue of tax dues never raised…

புகையிலை எதிர்ப்புக்கு எதிர்ப்பு

அன்புமணி இராமதாஸ் அவர்கள் நலவாழ்வு அமைச்சராக இருந்த போது - புகையிலைப் பொருட்கள் மீது மண்டை ஓட்டுடன் கூடிய எச்சரிக்கைப் படத்தை சிகரெட் பெட்டியின் இரண்டு பக்கத்திலும் பாதியளவு இடத்தில் கொண்டுவர ஆணையிட்டார்.

ஆனால், அப்போதுதான் #பிரணாப்முகர்ஜி 1/n Image
முதன் முதலாக தேர்தலில் போட்டியிட்டு மக்களவைக்கு தேர்ந்தெடுக்கப்பட்டிருந்தார். அதிக எண்ணிக்கையிலான பீடி சுற்றுவோர் #பிரணாப்முகர்ஜி சாங்கிப்பூர் தொகுதியில் இருந்தார்கள். சிகரெட் கம்பெனிகள் பீடித்தொழிலாளர்களைப் பிடித்தனர். அவர்கள் பிரணாப் முகர்ஜியைப் பிடித்தனர். 2/n
பிரணாப் மன்மோகனைப் பிடித்தார். மன்மோகன் இந்த சிக்கலில் முடிவெடுக்கும் அமைச்சர்கள் குழுவை அமைத்து அதற்கு #பிரணாப்முகர்ஜி யைத் தலைவர் ஆக்கினார்.

அப்புறம் என்ன? சிகரெட் பெட்டியின் இரண்டு பக்கத்திலும் எச்சரிக்கை படம் என்பது ஒருபக்கம் ஆனது. பாதி இடம் என்பது 40% ஆக ஆனது. 3/n

Among other things, #PranabMukherjee was said to have the memory of an elephant. Remembered the minutest detail from years ago.
Remember an interview of Arun Shourie by @ShekharGupta in #WalkTheTalk when UPA2 was floundering. He told SG that - had it not been for #PranabMukherjee who was the only person who had credibility within the Congress and with the Opposition the government would have collapsed.
Perhaps, the unkindest cut was - when Manmohan Singh went for his coronary bypass surgery #SoniaGandhi refused to name #PranabMukherjee the interim No 2 despite his being the senior most in the cabinet (she formed a joint committee with AK Antony. Such insecurity.

While the world battles #Covid19, #AhmedOmarSaeedSheikh, the man who plotted, abducted & orchestrated the beheading of @wsj journalist #DanielPearl, was blatantly acquitted by a #Pakistan court recently.
Read this thread to know why it concerns India and the world.
Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh & 3 others convicted for abduction & murder of journalist #DanielPearl have been acquitted and have been set free by a Pakistani court. Only in #Pakistan will one witness that convicted #terrorists on death row set free by courts.
Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh’s exoneration comes as a shock for journalists all over the world as #DanielPearl’s kidnapping & beheading had become the horrible precedence and dark grammar of jihadi violence aimed at journalists to silence their voices.

There is a saying in Bengali which means the house owner starts taking precautions once the robbery is over. For last three weeks @RahulGandhi became a poster boy of #Pakistan by his immature acts on #Kashmir issue. The realization now dawns that he must change track. 1/n
It is not known what prompted #RahulGandhi 2 try visiting #Kashmir last week, knowing fully well that the #Modi government got moral/legal sanction from the Supreme Court 2 take all preventive measures 2 stop blood spill and, that Gandhi would be returned like other leaders. 2/n
One may see the shadow of #Wayanad in #RahulGandhi's desperation but, to me his acts only helped the politically irrelevant #Left to stay in news. Left has a history of opposing Congress in States while joining hands hands in d Centre. #Congress's gains were short term. 3/n

#NanajiDeshmukh, who today was awarded the #BharatRatna, was a pivotal opposition figure in the Emergency years, and in all three episodes I've recently explored – the 'subversive' protests (1975), the 'anti-national' resistance abroad ('76) & the 'unholy alliance' ('77). Thread.
(2) In late '74, JP's 'sampoorna kranti' agitation was gaining momentum in Patna, led mainly by students. On Nov 4, a massive rally was met with a police lathi-charge. According to legend, Deshmukh protected JP from a blow – which nearly broke his arm.…
(3) Emergency was declared in '75. Before #NanajiDeshmukh was arrested, in December, he issued an ‘eight-point programme for Indians abroad’, a manual for what would become the overseas anti-Emergency movement – the original "anti-national" lobby.…
