PBs twisty take on the top five headlines of the day.
1. Government determined to push through GST Bill in next session: Arun Jaitley
The government has decided to go ahead with the Goods and Services Tax ( GST) bill in the Rajya Sabha despite strong opposition by the Congress and its vice-president Rahul Gandhi. Almost all the parties supported the bill, except the Congress, which had taken an unreasonable stand.
2. AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal: ED summons Christian Mitchel’s Indian contacts
Officials said few people involved in creating an overseas firm with Mitchel have been called by the agency to record their statements under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act ( PMLA) this week.
Everyone now just want the issue to be dealt with as soon as possible and all the people involved in this deal should be behind bars.
3. SP BJP’s main rival in Uttar Pradesh: Amit Shah
Showing confidence in his party members, hoping they will get a majority in the state and still undecided on whether they should announce their candidate or not. He also dismissed reports that the BJP brass was mulling over removing Chief Minister Anandiben Patel and said the party had not discussed the issue.
4. ‘Why Amitabh Bachchan?’ Congress Attacks Government Over Delhi Show
Nobody has accused Bachchan of any wrong doing. So why is the Congress getting its knickers all knotted up? Remember that Bachchan was once a Congress MP of the Lok Sabha representing Allahabad? Both the BJP and Bachchan are well within their rights to take part in any socially relevant program. But again, celebrating the two years of being in power, by the BJP was a bit outrageous event. Why celebrate now? Is it going to be their last time?
5. Outrage Over Sexist Comments On Angurlata Deka, BJP’s Assam Lawmaker
Ronald Reagan , the former president of America was an actor and also a former president of Philippines, Jayalalitha, who just won another term in TN and has been CM of that state for more than a decade was a movie actress. What Ram Gopal Verma did was just pure foolish and ignorant and news outlets should not follow the bandwagon on this one.
