Violence in the PAa national disgrace

The barbaric and violent casteist agitation, arson and burning of buses, minister’s and MP’s houses in Amalapuram to protest the renaming of Konaseema district to Dr Ambedkar konaseema is a national disgrace. The castist snakes, anti-national activists and feudal masterminds leading this violent agitation should be crushed with an iron fist by the government in order to maintain the dignity of the father of the Indian constitution. Opposition political parties should also give up their narrow political interests and unitedly support the progressive decision of the AP government.

The release of Sibal had been preparing for a long time

Not surprisingly, senior Congressman Kapil Sibal shifted his loyalties to the Samajwadi party. He has long expressed his dissatisfaction with Congress party business. Since he is not a leader of the masses, his absence may not affect the big old party much. The high command should take note of the developments in good spirit and begin to straighten the bridges. The Congress party will have a future in the hands of committed young leaders who should be trained in a democratic way.

The politics behind the imposition of Hindi

Vivek Shukla’s article, “Don’t Impose Hindi, Learn Pakistan’s Bitter Lessons” (The Hans India, May 24), is very timely and instructive. After independence, our drafters of the Constitution preferred to give priority to regional languages. While the Official Language Act 1963 preferred Hindi as the official status for Union Government correspondence, English also serves as a liaison language for the convenience of non-Hindi states as guaranteed by the Legislature . It is only our politicians, to take advantage of troubled waters, who frequently issue hot and cold statements according to their own interests.

Atma Nirbhar in the Defense Sector

The government is keen to reduce reliance on imported military platforms as the Indian Armed Forces are expected to spend around $130 billion on capital acquisitions over the next five years. A target set for $25 billion in defense manufacturing revenue in the country over the next five years is a sure roadmap to achieve mammoth ambition. The government’s effort to attract more FDI following the decision to raise the investment ceiling through the automatic route to 74% is seen as an innovative addition to the roadmap. That the war in Ukraine has proven the vulnerability of Russian tanks, fighter jets, helicopters and armored vehicles to missiles supplied by NATO is inescapable; while the missiles, multi-barrel rockets and various bombs used by the Russians proved deadly without question in Ukraine.
