We spoke last night about Kashmir, Prime Minister Modi really feels he has it under control. They speak with Pakistan and I’m sure that they will be able to do something that will be very good.

__ Donald Trump, American President

************************************************************************

We have many issues with Pakistan that are bilateral. We don’t bother other countries about these issues. We can find solutions through discussions.

__ Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India

************************************************************************

We are living the end of Western hegemony in the world.

__ Emmanuel Macron, French President

************************************************************************

Racism in America is an institutional “white man’s problem visited on people of colour”.

__ John Biden, US Vice President

************************************************************************

The China-US trade war made it more difficult for China to tackle climate change.

__ Li Gao, Chinese climate official

************************************************************************

The way the issue (Amazon forest fires) was taken to G7 was a kind of affront to sovereignty of Brazil.

__ Andre Aranha Correa Do Lago, Brazilian Ambassador

************************************************************************

In the past couple of years, the frequency and scale of frauds revealed to stakeholders and the public at large have been astonishing.

__ Pranab Mukherjee, former President of India

************************************************************************

This is not an age third degree (torture). Police should stay ahead of crime and criminal minded people. It should use forensic science to get irrefutable evidence against the suspect that would lead to conviction in court.

__ Amit Shah, Union Home Minister

************************************************************************

Pak’s nuke talk is loose talk, but cannot rule out a limited war.

__ General V.P. Malik, former Indian Army chief

************************************************************************

Consolidated PSBs for strong national presence and global reach is part of the objectives with which we went about this plan (PSB merger). So 82 % of all PSB business and 56% of all commercial business will be with them….This is going to provide lot of strength to the economy because these mergers will bring synergies in operation.

__ Nirmala Sitharaman, Union Finance Minister

************************************************************************

The slowdown in growth (Quarterly GDP growth falls to 7 year low of 5%) is due to endogenous and exogenous factors …..The government is alive to the situation and has taken several measures.

__ K. Subramanian, Chief Economic Advisor

************************************************************************

We ‘ve been talking of slowdown in demand for long and today’s figures only underline it. The manufacturing sector has grown just 0.6 per cent, compared to 12.1 per cent in the same period last year. It shows the problem has deepened. People are not buying. The government should now seriously look at structural reforms including in the labour and land markets as a way out of this morass.

__ Prof. M. Govinda Rao, former member of PM’s Economic Advisory Council

************************************************************************

The GDP growth rate clearly shows that the government trumpeting about “Achche Din” (good days) has punctured the state of the economy. Neither is the GDP growth nor is the Rupee strong and the jobs are lost. Now clarify as to whose act is it to destroy the economy.

__ Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Congress leader

************************************************************************

The government is pre-occupied in shoddy headline management and cover up jobs, instead of addressing the structural issues ailing the economy. This is a classic case of quacks turning into surgeons. Naturally, patients will be dead before you even know.

__ Randeep Surjewala, Congress chief spokesperson

************************************************************************

RBI still sitting on huge buffers. Present money transfer was grossly inadequate.

__ Piyush Goyal, Union Railway Minister

************************************************************************

I disagree with this government on many issues. But let me make this absolutely clear: Kashmir is India’s internal issue and there is no room for Pakistan or any other foreign country to interfere…….There is violence in Jammu and Kashmir……because it is instigated and supported by Pakistan.

__ Rahul Gandhi, Congress MP

************************************************************************

Names of many Indian citizens who migrated from Bangladesh as refugees prior to 1971 have not been included as authorities refused to accept refugee certificates. Many names got included because of manipulation of legacy data.

__ Himanta Biswas Sarma, Assam Finance Minister commenting on 19 lakh excluded from final NRC

************************************************************************

I am not happy with the NRC has been published with the names of genuine Indian citizens left and foreigners included.

__ Tarun Gogoi, 3 times former Assam CM, Congress leader

************************************************************************

The NRC fiasco has exposed all those who tried to take political mileage out of it. They have a lot to answer to the nation.

__ Mamata Banerjee, West Bengal CM

************************************************************************

Now this myth of illegal migrants have been busted. That is why you see the BJP now complaining about NRC.

__ Asaduddin Owaisi, AIMIM President.

************************************************************************

The government must ensure that it is not depriving a person of his/her nationality on arbitrary or vague ground.

__ Akar Patel, Head, Amnesty International India.

Once a Maharaj ji told me that bad times are upon us and opposition is upto something, using some “Marak Shakti” against BJP. I later forgot what he said, but now when I see our top leaders leaving us one by one, I am forced to think, wasn’t Maharaj ji right?
