PM Modi Has An Amusing 'Challenge' For Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy

PM Modi Has An Amusing ‘Challenge’ For Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy

It was about three weeks ago when PM Modi accepted a similar challenge from Indian cricket team’s captain Virat Kohli when he tagged PM Modi in his #FitnessChallenge video.

Seems like PM Modi is walking on Virat Kohli’s path. On Wednesday, he posted a video in which he was doing some exercise moves and yoga poses.

He tweeted and shared his thoughts and some morning exercises, apart from yoga.

A part of his fitness routine that Modi filmed and posted on Twitter involves some walking on a track inspired by nature’s five elements. Also, in the video, PM Modi is doing a variety of yoga poses including pranayama.

Modi gave a fitness challenge to Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, Commonwealth medalist Manika Batra and 40+ Indian Police Service (IPS) officers.

Modi mentioned it in the tweet,

Karnataka’s chief minister HD Kumaraswamy immediately responded to Modi’s tweet and wrote a respectful message on his wall.

Well, for your information, Kumaraswamy and Modi’s parties were rivals in Karnataka elections. The Janata Dal (United) and the Bharatiya Janata Party had a tough fight to form a government. In that, Kumaraswamy emerged as the winner finally.

After challenging the Karnataka’s Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy and all IPS officers “especially those above 40”, Modi again wrote a tweet and said,

PM Narendra Modi Bets on Poll Gain From Welfare Plan for 500 Million Indians

PM Narendra Modi Bets on Poll Gain From Welfare Plan for 500 Million Indians

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is about to expand a welfare program to India’s 500 million workers as he offers re-election in 2019. Though, the plan is sounding good but, we guess the time is very limited to execute this plan.

The PM firstly wants to focus on the three programs i.e. old age pension, life insurance and maternity benefit to most working citizens. He is currently including only these three programs.

In this context, the government has prepared a bill to extend benefits to all workers by merging and simplifying 15 federal labor laws into one. According to the sources, the bill may be present in July in the upcoming session of Parliament where the national poll will be conducted.
As for now, the plan seems to be one of the widest and strongest mass benefit programs in the country of 1.3 billion people and it actually comes after the health protection plan comes in Feb and targeted to cover 100 million poor families, dubbed ‘ Modicare’.

All About Money Matters

According to officials, For better result, the government plans to investigate the project in six districts in the months leading up to the federal elections due in May next year.

Nobody can deny the importance of social security for the country’s working class and it is overdue,” said Satish Misra, a political analyst at the Observer Research Foundation in New Delhi.

Though the whole process seems a challenging process for the government to make the system sustainable, and to bestow benefits from the $376 billion budget. Well, the thing to be noticed here is that the plan is involving maternity, pension, and death or disability and leaving out some other department unemployment and child support, said officials.

The government is hoping for the good results and this move may impact the economy in a positive way. Like giving the benefits mostly to informal workers who contribute to about half of the country’s GDP, it would enhance the quality of life and raise productivity. It will also improve the productivity.

All About Money Matters

In an interview at Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi the economist professor Santosh Mehrotra, said that: Giving minimum social benefits to the working class, who make up about a fifth of the country’s population, would cost the government 0.38 percent of total GDP or about 500 billion rupees annually.

He also added that: In 22 years, India will be an aging society like China. If it doesn’t start working on social security today, who will pay for those old people?

PM Narendra Modi Denied to Sign MoU on Illegal Indians as the UK is Not Offering Easy Access to its Visas

PM Narendra Modi Denied to Sign MoU on Illegal Indians as the UK is Not Offering Easy Access to its Visas

As per the news, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has refused to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the UK. The reason revealed by the sources at the India High Commission in London –

“The bilateral agreement on the return of illegal Indians, which junior home minister Kiren Rijiju had pencilled in January, was not signed in April when Modi visited London because India did not see any progress on the British side of the agreement.”

The deal was primarily meant to have been the bilateral agreement signed during PM’s visit. Theresa May – British PM told Mr. Modi that – “the UK would consider further improvements to its visa offer if, at the same time, we can step up the speed and volume of returns of Indians with no right to remain in the UK.”

Yesterday a spokesperson said that the MoU by the minister of immigration and Indian minister of state for home affairs paves the way for a more efficient process for returning Indian nationals who are in the UK illegally.

A senior high commission further said –

When May went to India she said progress on returns would help progress on UK visas for Indians, but we are not seeing that. We are seeing the denial of spousal visas and cancelling visas on small pretexts and a hostile environment. We need to see some easing of migration, especially of short-term visas such as for Indians students and those coming to work for companies

The official said that if they are providing better visas system to Chinese why, not to Indians? Another reason for not signing the agreement was that the timelines in the memorandum were not realistic for getting confirmation of people’s identities.

The timelines in the MoU were that the Indian authorities would have nearly 70 days to verify the illegal Indian in the UK without ID and only 15 days to confirm the identity of someone with ID.
