A tweet thread on #India's #Government #Finances
1. They are in a deep mess. The #Punjab #FinanceMinister came out of a #GSTCouncil meeting to suggest that the #UnionGovt may be close to a #SovereignDefault, because it is unable to p[ay out to the States's their share of GST.
That may be hyperbole. A sovereign default is when the Govt is so cash strapped that it is unable to service its debt. I'm not sure India is anywhere near that dire situation as yet.
But that does not mean that the Public finances are rosy. In fact they are dire in the extreme!

Can the family of a Pakistani PM visit #Bangladesh & spend a week visiting as guests of the state & be celebrated by the Bengali upperclass? How many years does it take to forgive & forget mass rape, murder & economic subjugation? Is 70 years the magic number? 1/n

#royalvisit
Is our culture that forgiving? Sure guests should always be honored but what if those guests belong to a tribe that took away EVERYTHING from our forefathers? Perhaps those celebrating are the same people who remained their junior partners in crime. The British Raj was brutal 2/n
Millions of our fellow countrymen perished for no fault of their own. Still diplomatic norms dictate we show respect for int’l guests, as no one is innocent really. But do we have to sing & dance in the streets when our hearts feel lingering pain caused by their actions 3/n

Deeply saddened to know of swargvas of @RSSorg veteran Shri Jaikrishna Sharma, who bravely stood up against #Khalistani terror at its peak. Organised Punjab Rashtriya Suraksha Samiti.Held lectures, processions all over #Punjab. तेरा वैभव अमर रहे मां हम दिन चार रहें ना रहें 🙏
Was bed ridden 4 years when I met him in Una HP due 2accident. But full of warmth. Was happy 2tell me abt Punjab struggle, showed photos, news clips of those days 4my PhD research. He was emotional when he talked of @narendramodi ji, saying he never imagined he will see this day
When Rajju Bhaiyya ji , then Sarkaryavaah, asked him, you know the possible of responsibility of fighting #Khalistanis? Jaikrishna ji said, "Yes, bullet." He coined the slogan in Punjabi - "We will not allow any division between Hindu-Sikh, we will not allow another 1947." 🙏

THREAD: A Public Interest Litigation has been filed in the SC to investigate 8257 cases of extrajudicial execution/enforced disappearances during the period 1984-1995 in #Punjab. It is a culmination of a decade long investigation by Punjab Documentation & Advocacy Project. (1/n)
The investigation is the most important human rights documentation work emerging out of India. It dismantles the deeply entrenched edifice of “terrorism” being defeated in Punjab. It complicates a simple narrative which has been peddled by the media, judiciary & academia. (2/n)
This article gives a background to the lives of Punjab's human right's defenders- Jaswant Singh Khalra who first exposed mass atrocities in Punjab and Paramjit Kaur Khalra who continues to fight the good fight. (3/n)

Local authorities in #Pakistan are not doing a good job protecting #Pakistani #Hazara population in #Quetta #Balochistan but the complex geopolitics involved in this story are terrifying. /1

#PakistanGenocide
There is a compelling case for categorizing attacks on #Hazara as acts of terrorism & war, not only sectarianism. #Pakistani Hazara & the State are embroiled in a complex situation that demands recognition & full disclosure. /2

#Pakistan law enforcement has eliminated key anti-#Shia extremist #Sunni militants in #Balochistan+#Punjab since 2015, & worked with #US & #Afghanistan to close #LeJ/#TTP/#BLA terror camps (involved in sectarian killings as part of a wider anti-Pak war)./3

Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
#SZAB
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.

#Amritsar #Punjab
इतना बड़ा देश है, इतने आयोजन होते है एक भी आयोजन ऐसा नहीं होता जहाँ कुछ अनहोनी होने पर उससे बचने के इंतजाम किये जाते हो

आखिर कब सीखेंगे हम, कम सीखेंगी हमारी सरकारें
यहाँ जहाँ में रहता हूँ, ऐसे आयोजन हो तो आयोजन स्थल पर
1. फायर ब्रिगेड
2. अम्बुलेंस
3. पुलिस
4. वालंटियर्स
ये तो अनिवार्य रूप से उपस्तिथ होते ही है
इसके अतिरिक्त
वहां से गुजरने वाला यातायात बंद

क्या हम भी कभी कुछ सीखकर आदमी के जीवन की कीमत समझ पायेंगे?
#Amritsar #Punjab हादसे में
1. क्या आयोजन कर्ता ने उक्त स्थान पर इस आयोजन की परमिशन ली थी?
2. ली थी, तो अनुमति देने वाले विभाग ने क्या दिशा निर्देश दिए थे?
3. क्या आयोजन कर्ता और जनता को नहीं पता था की उन पटरियों से उस समय वो ट्रेन गुजरती है?

1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.
