Surprises! A courtesy call or something in store for Arun Shourie!

Yet another surprising move by Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he visited ailing former Union minister Arun Shourie in Pune. One of the worst critiques of Modi in the recent times was overwhelmed on PM’s gesture who has even gone to the extent of filing a case in the Supreme Court alleging PMO involved in corruption in the Rafale jet deal.

Was it a simple courtesy call or the Modi government wants to break ice with a former BJP leader who silenced BJP critiques on many occasions in the past? He was full time disinvestment minister in the Vajpayee government and Modi government facing hic ups in this regards. What could be the possible takeaways?

  1. Is the Modi government looking at him to help in the matters of PSUs disinvestment
  2. Are they thinking in the line of replacing Arun Nehru with Arun Shourie on many issues as they need a person having statesman like quality
  3. Is the BJP want to give him a chance to its leader who is almost at the fag end of his social life to correct its mistakes but helping the BJP in anyway
  4. There might be something else that the PM has in his mind for Arun Shourie who is very valuable for his social and political understanding
  5. Since he met him in Pune, its message will go all across Maharashtra where the BJP has another former ally going against it

RBI to cut interest rate for sixth time over concerns of falling GDP

By IndianMandarins 05 Dec 2019

To arrest declining GDP, the RBI is expected to make sixth straight rate cut shrugging off a spike in inflation as it stays doggedly focused on supporting economic growth. The RBI has cut borrowing costs by 135 basis points so far in 2019 to a nine-year low of 5.15 per cent.

Meeting of the six-member Monetary Policy Committee led by RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das comes amid deepening concerns about growth, financial stability and weak public finances.

The RBI has lowered its growth forecast for the current fiscal year four times already, with the latest revision in October pegging expansion at 6.1%. Data since then has shown gross domestic product expansion slowing to 4.5% in the July to September period, the weakest pace in more than six years.

The July-September period saw economic slack deepen, with manufacturing contracting. A purchasing managers survey indicated that activity in the dominant services industry slowed during that period. With surveys for both manufacturing and services in November pointing to a rebound, it’s worth watching if and by how much the RBI will further lower its growth forecast.

Maharashtra politics: Did a lawyer break the ice?

By IndianMandarins 23 Nov 2019

Devendra Fadnavis is the new chief minister of Maharashtra that too for second time. But people who had missed the last bus – the mainstream media – that who would form the government are looking for the person who was instrumental in breaking the ice between the two political parties – the BJP and the NCP. The identity of the person who played a role as an important link to make Maharashtra government to become a reality is a lawyer by profession. Sooner or later his identity will be revealed but for now it is moment to relish for NCP.
