Good Morning!

 

Especially to Dr. Kafil Khan for finally getting bail after 8 months as he was put in jail and made a scapegoat for administrative lapses. It is the last day of April, also a Monday and we are here to catch up with news from the weekend and more in today’s Auditorial and if you haven’t bought milk for the week, hold on we may save you some money by showing you where can you get good quality milk for free.

 

 


 

GET FREE MILK

 

Well a pack of Nestle A+ costs 75, Mother Dairy costs about 40 per liter and Amul Milk costs about Rs 65/- but why spend all the money when you can get it for free. From May 3, dairy farmers in Maharashtra will distribute milk free of cost.  To protest against the low procurement prices given to them by dairies. While farmers had demanded a base price of Rs 50 per liter for their milk, the government had announced a price of Rs 22. Last June, following discussions with farmers, the government had raised the procurement price to Rs 27. Today the farmers are getting anywhere between Rs 19 to Rs 22 per liter.

 

Well With free milk comes free rice for you to make some kheer if you will, but for that, we’d have to head to Puducherry, where Kiran Bedi announced a new ‘policy’ to stop the distribution of free rice to those villages that are not open defecation and garbage free. Thankfully, she came to her senses and withdrew the unconstitutional notice. Maybe PM Modi should have put a gag order on the Governors as well, but that too would have been unconstitutional, and it’s not like his Masala Gag order is working.

 


 

MASALA KING IS BACK AND THIS TIME HE WANTS YOUTH TO NOT STAND IN LINE FOR GOVT JOBS, BUT HERD COWS &  OPEN PAAN SHOPS INSTEAD. 

 

Which brings us to the MDH King, the new Tripura CM who was in the news yet again, in the weeks since has been sworn, he caught so many headlines and attention that PM has had o call him to New Delhi to not take the limelight away from others. Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb has been summoned to meet Modi and BJP President Amit Shah on 2 May in the national capital after his relentless pursuit of truth and knowledge was churning out great economic advice to improve the employment rate.

To fulfill his promise of providing 7 lakh jobs within 30 months, the Tripura CM is now leaving no cow and pan shop unturned. The solution to unemployment, Deb suggests, is to stop chasing government jobs, and instead rear cows or set up paan shops. “Every household should have a cow. Milk is being sold at Rs 50 per liter in Tripura. If a graduate, who keeps job hunting for 10 years, rears a cow, he would earn Rs 10 lakh,” Deb said at a seminar organized by the Tripura Veterinary Council on Saturday.

“Instead of running after political parties to get government jobs and wasting the vital time of their life, the same youth could have had a bank balance of Rs 5 lakh had they set up a paan shop,” Deb had said.

That the farmers in Maharashtra are giving away Milk for free, may just curdle the employment effect that BJP’s CM of Tripura may have theorized.

 


 

ON BUDDH PURNIMA: AMBEDKAR & MODI ARE BRAHMINS, & THE DALIT TATTOOS THAT ARE A RAGE IN MP

 

And while we are on Masala, another enlightened one has spoken, and this time it is Gujarat Assembly Speaker, Rajendra Trivedi who was quoted by ANI for claiming that both Ambedkar and Modi ji are brahmins. “I’ve no hesitation in saying Ambedkar is a Brahmin. His surname, Ambedkar, a Brahmin surname, was given by his teacher, a Brahmin. Not wrong to call a learned person a Brahmin. In that context, I’ll say Modi Ji is also a Brahmin.” Fair enough, that explains why casteism is dead and getting SC/St tattoos are all the rage, in Madhya Pradesh especially. candidates appearing for the post of constables in Madhya Pradesh’s Dhar were branded with initials — SC for scheduled caste, ST for scheduled tribe and O for OBC, or other backward class. An investigation had been ordered,

 


 

ANOTHER BOMB BLAST AT INDIA PROPERTIES IN NEPAL

 

And let’s move to our neighborhood. Good fences make good neighbors, but not if you are a fence sitter, like Nepal. Another blast has hit India’s infrastructures in Nepal. A bomb exploded on Sunday at the office of a hydroelectricity project being developed with Indian assistance in eastern Nepal, an official said, weeks before its inauguration by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on May 11. The compound wall of the 900MW Arun III Hydroelectric Power Plant’s office in Tumlingtar, nearly 500km from here, was damaged in the explosion. No one was injured. No one has claimed responsibility for the blast.

This is the second blast within a month in Indian properties in Nepal.

 


 

INDIA-PAKISTAN TO BE PART OF A MILITARY EXERCISE

 

In a first, arch-rivals India and Pakistan will be part of a multi-nation counter-terror exercise in Russia in September, which will also be joined by China and several other countries.The military exercise will take place under the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, a China-dominated security grouping which is increasingly seen as a counterweight to NATO.

It will be for the first time since Independence that India and Pakistan will be part of a military exercise.

Well, at least that’s a beginning of some hope even as it comes under the shadow of arms, and one look at International news confirms us with that hope.

 


 

KIM SYNCS TIMEZONE WITH SOUTH KOREA

 

Kim Jong Un vows to shut down Nuclear test sites, next month. but only if the US pledged that it will not invade North Korea.  Meanwhile, South Korea said it will remove propaganda loudspeakers from near the border with North Korea but today the two countries who have left in different time zones, literally as well as socially and culturally will now try to get in sync.

North Korea will shift its time zone 30 minutes earlier to align with South Korea starting May 5 “as a first practical step for national reconciliation and unity,” the North’s state media said Monday.

 

While some things appear to be out of a movie or a work of fiction, like

 


 

‘M’ IS ACTUALLY A FEMALE

 

The head of Britain’s MI6 secret service – superspy James Bond’s boss – is expected to be a woman for the first time in real life in the agency’s 109-year history.

 

The top job, depicted as  ‘M’ in the Bond films where she was portrayed by actress Judi Dench, is likely to go to a female frontrunner as part of the succession planning process at the UK’s foreign intelligence agency, ‘The Sunday Times’ reported. Obviously, her name is a secret.

 



 

That is all that we have for you for today. We will be back with more masala, free milk schemes, news about neighbors and neighborhood and more. Thank you for listening, goodbye from takeapart.in
