“Hope Peace Doesn’t Have To Wait Until Navjot Singh Sidhu Becomes PM,” Says Imran Khan


Navjot Singh Sidhu is in Pakistan today for the groundbreaking Kartarpur corridor ceremony

New Delhi: 

The bonhomie between Imran Khan and Navjot Sidhu was in full flow in Pakistan today hours after India refused to attend the SAARC summit there, citing continuing cross-border terror.  Mr Sidhu, who had triggered a raging controversy back home with his decision to attend the groundbreaking ceremony of the Kartarpur Sahib corridor, hailed Mr Khan as his “Yaar Dildaar” (dear friend) and thanked him for giving a green signal to the corridor, which has been on the wishlist of India’s Sikhs for decades.

The Pakistan Prime Minister responded with a sugary barb. “I hope we don’t have to wait for Sidhu to become India’s Prime Minister for the two countries to become friends,” Mr Khan said.

“As a cricketer Navjot was someone who took risks, never was scared of failing. He is not one of those politicians who are selfish,” Mr Khan said.

He also raised the subject of the criticism Mr Sidhu had to face back home when he went to Pakistan to attend his oath ceremony in August.

“Why is Sidhu in so much trouble? We are two countries that are nuclear countries, we can’t be at war because that’s madness. So why do they criticise him?” Mr Khan said. Then he added an open invitation: “Sidhu come here and you will win elections here…  I hope we don’t have to wait for Sidhu to become Prime Minister for peace talks to happen.”

Mr Sidhu had been ripped apart by the BJP and on social media after he was seen but embracing Pakistan army chief General Qamar Bajwa and sitting with the “president” of Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir.  After Pakistan signed off on the Kartarpur Sahib corridor, Mr Sidhu bragged that the episode had to some positive outcome.  

This time, he was roasted after deciding to go to Pakistan even when his boss, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh declined, citing terror attacks in his state. One of these took place last week at a prayer hall near Amritsar in which three persons died.

Mr Singh has said he had asked Mr Sidhu to reconsider his decision. “Sidhu told me he had already committed himself to going. When I informed him of the stand I had taken on the issue, he said it was his personal visit but he would get back to me. But I did not hear from him,” the Chief Minister said.

Earlier today, while addressing the gathering, Mr Sidhu had been effusive.

The former cricketer, who earlier referred to Mr Khan as an angel, said, “This is miracle, what hasn’t happened in 70 years… Mera yaar, dildaar, Imran Khan jive (may my friend Imran Khan thrive, live). He has been a good friend and delivered his promise”.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley Government Doesnt Need Extra Funds From RBI


खास बातें

  1. आरबीआई में हमारा कोई दखल नहीं- जेटली
  2. पहले आई थी आरबीआई औऱ सरकार के बीच टकराव की बात
  3. एक निजी न्यूज चैनल को दिए इंटरव्यू में वित्त मंत्री ने रखी अपनी बात

नई दिल्ली: वित्त मंत्री अरुण जेटली (Arun Jaitley) ने सरकार और आरबीआई (RBI) के बीच चल रही खींचतान के बीच राजकोषीय घाटे को लेकर एक बड़ा बयान दिया है. उन्होंने कहा कि इस घाटे को कम करने के लिए हमें रिजर्व बैंक या किसी और संस्था से कोई अतिरिक्त पैसा नहीं चाहिए. हालांकि अरुण जेटली (Arun Jaitley) ने यह जरूर कहा कि रिजर्व बैंक (RBI)के पूंजी ढांचे के लिये जो भी नई रूप रेखा बनेगी और उससे जो अतिरिक्त कोष प्राप्त होगा, उसका इस्तेमाल भविष्य की सरकारें आने वाले सालों में गरीबी उन्मूलन कार्यक्रमों में कर सकतीं हैं.

एक निजी न्यूज चैनल को दिए इंटरव्यू में वित्त ने मंत्री कहा कि हमें अपने राजकोषीय घाटे के लक्ष्य को पाने के लिये अन्य संस्थाओं से किसी तरह के अतिरिक्त पैसे की आवश्यकता नहीं है. मैं इसे स्पष्ट करना चाहता हूं कि सरकार की इस तरह की कोई मंशा नहीं है. हम यह भी नहीं कह रहे हैं कि अगले छह माह में हमें कुछ पैसा दीजिये. क्योंकि हमें इसकी जरूरत ही नहीं है. रिजर्व बैंक के कोष पर सरकार की नजर होने की बात को लेकर हो रही आलोचना पर जेटली ने कहा कि पूरी दुनिया में केन्द्रीय बैंक के पूंजी ढांचे की एक रूप रेखा तय होती है.

इसमें केन्द्रीय बैंक द्वारा रखी जाने वाली आरक्षित राशि तय करने का प्रावधान किया जाता है. हम केवल यही कह रहे हैं कि इस बारे में कुछ चर्चा होनी चाहिये, कुछ नियम होने चाहिये जिसके तहत रिजर्व बैंक के लिये पूंजी ढांचे की रूपरेखा तय हो. उन्होंने कहा कि ऐसे में जो अधिशेष राशि होगी उसका इस्तेमाल भविष्य की सरकारें अगले कई वर्षों तक गरीबी उन्मूलन कार्यक्रमों के लिये कर सकती हैं. रिजर्व बैंक के केन्द्रीय बोर्ड ने इस माह हुई अपनी बैठक में रिजर्व बैंक के आर्थिक पूंजी ढांचे की रूप रेखा (ईसीएफ) तय करने के लिये एक उच्चस्तरीय विशेषज्ञ समिति बिठाने का फैसला किया है.

यह समिति केन्द्रीय बैंक के पास रहने वाली आरक्षित पूंजी का उचित स्तर के बारे में सुझाव देगी. समझा जाता है कि रिजर्व बैंक के पास इस समय 9.59 लाख करोड़ रुपये का भारी भरकम कोष रखा है. गौरतलब है कि कुछ दिन पहले सरकरा के एक नए फैसले की वजह से आरबीआई और सरकार के बीच सुलह की संभावना कम बताई जा रही थी. केंद्र सरकार के नए प्रस्ताव के बाद इसकी संभावना अब कम ही दिख रही है. दरअसल, केंद्र सरकार ने आरबीआई पर निगरानी रखने के लिए नियमों में बदलाव का नया प्रस्ताव रखने का मन बनाया है. जानकारों के अनुसार अगर ऐसा होता है तो यह जहां एक तरफ आरबीआई और केंद्र सरकार के बीच तनातनी को और बढ़ाएगा वहीं भारत जैसी तेजी से बढ़ती अर्थव्यवस्था में निवेशकों के विश्वास को भी कम कर सकता है. केंद्र सरकार ने सिफारिश की थी कि आरबीआई बोर्ड के मसौदे के नियम वित्तीय स्थिरता, मौद्रिक नीति संचरण और विदेशी मुद्रा प्रबंधन सहित अन्य कार्यों की निगरानी के लिए पैनल स्थापित करने में सक्षम हैं.सूत्रों के अनुसार इसका साफ तौर पर मतलब यह हुआ कि केंद्र सरकार की मंशा नियामक बोर्ड को और सशस्त बनाने की है.

Arun Jaitley Says Government Doesn’t Need Extra Funds From RBI To Meet Fiscal Deficit Target


Arun Jaitley said RBI’s autonomy has to be exercised within the framework of law. (File)

New Delhi: 

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has said the government does not need any extra funds from the Reserve Bank or any other institution to meet the fiscal deficit target.

However, he added that extra funds, which may accrue from the new capital framework of the Reserve Bank, can always be used for poverty alleviation programmes over the years by future governments.

“We don’t need any extra funds from any other institution to finance our fiscal deficit. Let’s be very clear that’s not the intention of the government. And we are not saying that in next six months give me some money. I don’t need it,” the minister said in an interview to TV channel Times Now.

India’s fiscal deficit is slated to come down to 3.3 per cent of GDP at the end of the current fiscal.

Responding to criticism that the government was eyeing RBI’s reserves, Mr Jaitley said globally central banks have a capital framework which determines the amount of funds that ought to be maintained as reserves.

“All we are saying is there has to be some discussion and some norms under which Reserve Bank will have a capital framework,” he said, adding that surplus funds could be used for poverty alleviation programmes by future governments over the next several years.

The RBI board at its meeting earlier in the month decided to set up a high-level committee for examining the Economic Capital Framework (ECF) to determine the appropriate levels of reserve the central bank should hold.

The RBI is reported to be holding a massive Rs 9.59 lakh crore of reserves.

Answering questions with regard to the autonomy of the Reserve Bank, Mr Jaitley said it has to be exercised within the framework of law.

“The government’s viewpoint is that we respect and we will always maintain the autonomy within the framework of the laws which have been laid down,” he said.

The government, Mr Jaitley added, would continue to flag issues with the Reserve Bank in the larger interest of the economy, and there has to be coordination between the central bank and the government

“If there are sectors of economy which are starved of liquidity or credit, as a sovereign government… we certainly will flag those issues wherever the RBI has the authority to decide certain things,” the minister said, adding there is no institutional failure.

He further said that during the Congress-led UPA regime, fiscal deficit went as high as 6 per cent of the GDP.

“We inherited a 4.6 per cent fiscal deficit. This government since 1947 in five-year tenure has the best record of fiscal prudence that any government has. From 4.6 per cent this year we are going to bring it down to 3.3 per cent,” he added.

Pakistan Doesn’t Do A Damn Thing For US, Says Donald Trump


Washington: 

President Donald Trump on Sunday defended his administration’s decision to stop hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid to Pakistan, saying the country does not do “a damn thing” for the US and its government had helped Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden hide near its garrison city.

Referring to Laden and his former compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, Donald Trump in an interview to Fox News said, “You know, living – think of this – living in Pakistan, beautifully in Pakistan in what I guess they considered a nice mansion, I don’t know, I’ve seen nicer.”

The compound was demolished shortly after US Naval Special Warfare Development Group forces, in a daring helicopter raid, killed Laden there in 2011.

“But living in Pakistan right next to the military academy, everybody in Pakistan knew he was there,” he added.

“And we give Pakistan USD 1.3 billion a year. … (Laden] lived in Pakistan, we’re supporting Pakistan, we’re giving them USD 1.3 billion a year — which we don’t give them anymore, by the way, I ended it because they don’t do anything for us, they don’t do a damn thing for us,” he said.

The ties between the two countries strained after Trump, while announcing his Afghanistan and South Asia policy in August last year, hit out at Pakistan for providing safe havens to “agents of chaos” that kill Americans in Afghanistan and warned Islamabad that it has “much to lose” by harbouring terrorists.

In September, the Trump administration cancelled $300 million in military aid to Islamabad for not doing enough against terror groups active on its soil.

Mr Trump also said that he has plans to visit Iraq and Afghanistan to meet American troops stationed there.

“Well, I think you will see that happen. There are things that are being planned. We don’t want to talk about it because of — obviously because of security reasons and everything else,” he said.

Mr Trump has been criticized by his political opponents for not visiting either Afghanistan or Iraq in the first two years of his presidency.

BJP Doesn’t Want To Improve Farmers’ Conditions


Hardik Patel feared there will be “dark days” ahead for farmers in the country (File Photo)

Jalna, Maharashtra: 

Patidar quota agitation leader Hardik Patel Saturday accused the BJP governments at the centre and in Maharashtra of neglecting farmers.

Mr Patel, the face of the campaign of Gujarat’s Patidar community for reservation in government jobs and education, said the BJP is just playing politics instead of solving the problems of farmers.

The 25-year-old Patidar leader was speaking at a public meeting organised by the Maratha Foundation at Kalyanrao Ghugre Stadium in central Maharashtra’s Jalna.

Mr Patel feared there will be “dark days” ahead for farmers in the country.

“The BJP government does not want to improve condition of farmers as it wants to play politics,” he said.

Mr Patel said people should overcome fear and raise their voice to get their basic rights.

“If we do not say anything against the government, we would be deprived of fundamental rights. I have been jailed for raising my voice against the government, but did not fear in doing so,” he said.

A large number of farmers have committed suicide in states ruled by the BJP, Mr Patel said.

During the last few years, 1,300 farmers have committed suicide in Gujarat, while the number of such cultivators is 5,000 in Maharashtra, he claimed.

Mr Patel supported the Maratha community’s demand for reservation in jobs and education and said the Maharashtra government should take a decision on the issue at the earliest.

On Thursday, the Maharashtra State Backward Class Commission submitted its report on the social and economic conditions of the Marathas, with a government source saying the panel has favoured quota for the community.

Not A Real Leader If One Doesn’t Take “Timely U-Turn”: Imran Khan


In cricket, we would change strategy depending on opponents, Imran Khan said. (File)

Islamabad: 

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Friday that a leader who does not take a timely “U-turns” is not a “real leader”.

During an interaction with journalists at the PM House, Mr Khan gave an example from his cricket days. “We used to make a strategy and then step out into the field. If the opponent team formed a strategy against ours, then we would have to change it.”

“If you are walking and there is a wall in front of you, then you will have to change and find another way,” Geo News journalist quoted him as saying.

Mr Khan also attacked former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, saying what he told an accountability court on Friday was not a U-turn but a “lie”.

“What Nawaz Sharif did in court was not a U-turn but a lie,” Mr Khan said, apparently referring to the Pakistan Muslim League supremo telling the court that he had never had any transaction with Qatari Prince Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al-Thani.

Nawaz Sharif is currently facing trial in three corruption cases filed against him and his family by the National Accountability Bureau on a directive from the Supreme Court in the Panama Papers scandal.

Mr Khan said his government will uphold the decisions taken by the Supreme Court.
