On October 6, 2017, I wrote a six-page letter to the Prime Minister. The next day, I had an hour-long meeting with him…
I complained to him that in 1986, we committed a blunder by enacting a law to reverse the judgment in the Shah Bano case, and now we will repeat the same blunder if we don’t enact a law to ensure that the judgment of the Supreme Court is respected and followed.
The Prime Minister told me that the law will be enacted.
The budgets presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley so far have been marked by one stark trend — taxing the rich to give out to the middle class
Jaitley's first budget presented in July 2014 was a balm for the middle class. He gave respite to the common taxpayer battered by high inflation during the previous UPA government by raising the the minimum basic tax exemption limit from Rs 2 lakh to Rs 2.5 lakh.
The limit for senior citizens was increased from Rs 2.5 lakh to Rs 3 lakh. In a relief for small investors, the limit on investments under Section 80C was increased from Rs.1 lakh per individual per annum to Rs.1.5 lakh.

the world’s largest milk producer—the country is emerging as a major exporter now, with production poised to outstrip domestic consumption soon.
justice Gogoi told activist-lawyer Prashant Bhushan who protested against this new definition of PILs
@EconomicTimes PILs can be filed by anybody in “public interest”, Bhushan contended. Justice Gogoi, however, brushed off his arguments saying: “The Supreme Court is there to take care of everyone’s fears
@EconomicTimes Justice Gogoi’s conservative approach to PILs, will result in a rollback of the court’s judicial activism which has of late caused much unease in the executive.
