Modi raising objections to Rahul temple’s visit show him in poor light

BJP leaders questioned why he had signed in the non-Hindu visitors book at the temple and asked him to come clean on his faith.



Campaigning in Gujarat assembly elections has entered a phase of high pitch and low concepts as Prime Minister Narendra Modi has resorted to raking up nonsensical issues by taunting Congress vice President Rahul Gandhi of visiting Somnath temple where as Modi and his coterie has hopped from temple to temple (Jain Temples) to seek blessings.

Bharatiya Janta Party had projected Modi as a leader in 2014 but Prime Minister Narendra Modi has ended up being a low level politician in 2017 by using low level politics of the persons like Amar Singh and mulayam Singh yadav.

Gujarat elections is a prestige issue for Modi and he started his campaign unofficially by first launching many inaugurations such as Dahej-based Petroleum, Chemical and Petrochemical Investment Region (PCPIR), sanctioning conversion of eight state highways as 1,200-km-long national highways and wooing people by series of sops and alluring them these above projects will generate jobs.

After the schedule of Gujarat elections were announced, Modi recounted his government’s achievements and termed his government as pro-development government. When he realized that farmers are upset with his government and committing suicides; Patidars and OBCs are parting ways with the BJP, Modi switched over to national issues such as demonetization and even encashing the Martyrs in Jammu and Kashmir by patting his back for his decision of surgical strikes in Pakistan and then he raised high sounding superlatives such as Jai Hind, Hindutuva. Now, Modi is needlessly criticizing Rahul Gandhi for visiting temples.

Modi started invoking the names of Vallabhbhai and Ambedkar for the sake of attracting votes from Patidars community and Dalits in Gujarat assembly elections.

BJP leaders questioned why he had signed in the non-Hindu visitors book at the temple and asked him to come clean on his faith.

But PM Modi fails to clarify how does a faith matters to governance or to ones position in the country.Such ridiculous and cheap observations are often made by the Saffron party which shows that this party is actually devoid of sense and strongly favours communal politics.

How does the faith matters in the governance of the country which is constitutionally a secular and those are trying to brand India as only a Hindu country are infact doing in-service to the nation.PM Modi who looks people through the prism of discrimination ,has never worn the skull cap but was never criticised on this ground.

Modi had been using polarising as a tool to win elections and in 2002 Modi the then the chief minister of Gujarat, had positioned himself as the protector of Hindus and dubbed Congress a pro-Muslim party. Now, BJP has again targeted Congress especially Rahul who is visiting Temples.

One should ask the question why Modi is always visiting temples prior to every state assembly polls.

Congress party and Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had never resorted to religious politics just to win the elections but Bharatiya Janata Party has displayed that it is strictly communal party..

On what grounds Modi is asking the Congress Party of what they have achieved in 70 years. In 70 years Congress has achieved a society that is not ridden with impertinent questions and made India stand in the group of advanced countries.

Modi has betrayed farmers by writing off loans worth Rs 140 lakh crore for industrialists. He should introspect and be ashamed of his conduct in public life. Congress was the first party to established the rule of law and laid the very foundation of relations with foreign countries ..Why Pm Modi is raising absurd issues when there are other important matters to be sorted out before the nation..

Indian-origin man in FBI ’10 Most Wanted’ list carries $100k reward

The FBI’s notice says that the accused “should be considered armed and extremely dangerous”.




Bhadreshkumar Chetanbhai Patel,

New York, Nov 28 : The US’ Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is reminding the public of a $100,000-reward offer for information leading to the capture of Indian-origin Bhadreshkumar Chetanbhai Patel, who has been listed by the agency as one of the “10 Most Wanted” since 2017.

Patel has been on the run since 2015 when he allegedly killed his wife, Palak, with a knife inside a Dunkin Donuts coffee shop in Hanover, Maryland state.

He has been charged with murder.

Although he was put on the list in 2017 with the $100,000 reward for information leading to his capture he has not been caught and on Friday the FBI tweeted information about him and the reward to draw attention to the case and the reward offer.

The FBI is asking anyone who knows where he is to contact the agency or the nearest US consulate or embassy.

Patel, who was 24 at that time, allegedly hit his 21-year-old wife in the face with a kitchen knife and stabbed her several times in the backroom of the shop where they both worked while customers were still there, according to officials quoted by WTOP radio.

He was last known to have taken a taxi from a hotel in New Jersey to a train station in Newark in the state.

Tim Altomare, who was the police chief of Anne Arundel County at that time, told the radio: “The violence in this case was stark. It was heart-wrenching and it was a shock to our collective conscience on the police department.”

WTOP reported that investigators think that Patel was still in the US in 2017 when he was put on the FBI list and according to Altomare investigators believe that someone was knowingly helping Patel or was interacting with him without knowing about his alleged crime.

The radio reported that according to Gordon Johnson, who was the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Baltimore field office in 2017, Patel was put on the list because of the brutality of the crime and the likelihood that someone outside the US knows where he was.

The couple’s visas expired about a month before the killing and investigators believe that Palak Patel wanted to return to India, but her husband opposed it, WTOP reported.

The FBI’s notice says that the accused “should be considered armed and extremely dangerous”.

According to the FBI he was born in Kantrodi Ta Viramgam in Gujarat.

National Milk Day: Know history, significance of this day; Interesting facts about milk here

National Milk Day was established in 2014 by the Food and Agriculture Organisation to commemorate Dr. Verghese Kurien, who is considered the father of India’s White Revolution.



Amul Milk Production

Every year, National Milk Day is celebrated on November 26 across India. The largest milk producing country celebrates this day to demonstrate the importance of milk in everyone’s life. It is worth noting that National Milk Day and World Milk Day are two different events, observed on different dates with different significance.

National Milk Day was established in 2014 by the Food and Agriculture Organisation to commemorate Dr. Verghese Kurien, who is considered the father of India’s White Revolution.

Why is National Milk Day Celebrated?

National Milk Day is celebrated on November 26 all over India, and it was established by the Food and Agricultural Organisation in 2014.

The day is dedicated to honouring Dr. Verghese Kurien, who is considered to be the father of India’s White Revolution. November 26 is also his birth anniversary, which is why this day is even more important as it also highlights his contribution to the country’s dairy farming and production.

First National Milk Day:

The Indian Dairy Association (IDA) in 2014, took the initiative to celebrate this day for the first time. The first National Milk Day was marked on November 26, 2014, in which various milk producers from 22 states participated.

Kerala-born, Dr Verghese Kurien is known as the ‘Milkman of India’ and the father of the 1970s White Revolution. He came with the one billion litre idea of turning a milk-guzzling country into world’s top dairy producer.

Milk is one of the best sources of calcium and the only drink in the world that contains such a large amount of natural nutrients.

Dr Verghese worked towards enabling the country to have its own production centres of milk. His support was crucial in making the Amul girl ad campaign-which is one of the longest-running campaigns for decades.

His accolades include Ramon Magsaysay Award, World Food Prize, Padma Shri, Padma Vibhushan, Padma Bhushan and Wateler Peace Prize.

Global availability of Covid vaccine for public only by mid-2021: Moody’s

The report said mass vaccination that significantly reduces individual and public health concerns would lift sentiment and present a significant upside to global growth.




Covid 19 Vaccine

New Delhi: While recent news about the high effectiveness of two coronavirus vaccines is a promising sign in the effort to combat the pandemic, a vaccine for Covid-19 will not be widely distributed before mid-2021, Moodys Investors Service said on Tuesday.

“However, these developments do not change the assumption underpinning our economic forecasts that widespread, global availability of the vaccine to the general public is only likely by around mid-2021,” Moody’s said in a report.

It added that the recent positive news about the effectiveness of vaccines under development will do little to ease the immediate concern that the current rise in coronavirus cases across the US and Europe will dampen sentiments and economic momentum in these regions this quarter and the next.

“Our baseline economic forecasts balance the downside risks of increasing infections and new lockdowns in the next two months, against the potential for widespread vaccinations over the next 12 months. If lockdowns are more severe than we expect, the negative effect on GDP could be offset if a coronavirus vaccine is available quicker and uptake is wider than we had expected,” it added.

Although successful Phase 3 trials of vaccines are a big step, there are numerous hurdles ahead, including satisfying approval requirements by regulators in individual countries, production of the billions of doses required for mass vaccination, ensuring proper storage and building distribution networks.

Distribution will likely occur in phases once regulators approve a vaccine, with health officials prioritizing access for healthcare workers and those in other high-risk professions, as well as for people who are most vulnerable to COVID-19, such as older people and individuals in care homes.

Moody’s said two important variables in overall success of vaccines in curbing the pandemic will be the public’s willingness to get vaccinated and what percentage of the population will need to be vaccinated in order for the spread of the virus to be brought under control. Vaccine availability likely will vary across countries, with cost and access major hurdles in particular for less-developed economies.

Many advanced and a handful of middle-income emerging market countries have already secured contracts for hundreds of millions of doses of the vaccines. Residents of these countries will be among the first to get the vaccinations, with their economies benefiting from the associated easing of the public health crisis. The earlier the health crisis in a country subsides, the stronger the country’s economic recovery will be, it added.

The report said mass vaccination that significantly reduces individual and public health concerns would lift sentiment and present a significant upside to global growth.

As long as the coronavirus remains a health risk, social distancing restrictions and the reluctance of consumers to engage in high contact social and economic activity will mar the recovery of services sectors. As vaccines become broadly available, health fears and concerns about an uncertain economic and financial outlook should recede, allowing for a quicker resumption of activity in high contact sectors such as hotels, restaurants, theaters, mass transit, airlines and travel and tourism.

Moody’s said the pandemic has already inflicted enormous damage on the hardest-hit sectors and will continue to undermine their financial condition and prospects, with repeated virus outbreaks and lockdown measures suppressing demand. The risk of business failure increases exponentially the longer the pandemic prevents a return to some semblance of normal activity.

A vaccine will help accelerate the recovery. But for many of these businesses, survival will remain challenging until the virus is no longer viewed as a significant public health threat. It is difficult to know how many businesses will survive several more months of below-normal revenue, it added.

Small and midsized businesses across advanced and emerging market countries are at risk and more of them will undoubtedly close on account of the prolonged cash flow shock. And those that do survive will have the long and arduous task of rebuilding their balance sheets while also, in many cases, facing significant changes in consumer behavior and demand patterns. “Therefore, even if economic activity returns to healthy levels once a vaccine is widely available, the detrimental economic impact and transformed operating environment will be felt for years to come”, Moody’s said.
