  • Problems do come up as all of us are getting into a formal system, into a technology driven system. I can understand the difficulties but I would not reject moving forward with the system which is in place and which benefits all of us. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on India attaining a $5-trillion economy, GST, failure of reforms and more.

    Johnson's campaign mantra to "get Brexit done" and widespread unease with the leadership style and socialist policies of opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn combined to give the ruling Conservatives 365 seats in the House of Commons, its best performance since party icon Margaret Thatcher's last victory in 1987.

    Claiming that the BJP is insulting the people of Delhi who are beneficiaries of pro-people policies "by calling them bikau or freeloaders", Sisodia said BJP leaders Amit Shah and J P Nadda should apologise to the people.

    Johnson’s win laid to rest concerns about Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s radical plans to nationalise swathes of British industry and impose onerous rules on business, such as handing workers as much as 10% ownership in companies. Still, for many companies Brexit remains a worry, and executives urged Johnson to take his time and strike a business-friendly deal with the EU.

    Prime Minister Johnson vowed to partner with his Indian counterpart Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his mission to build a new India.

    In a speech on the General Election campaign trail, Johnson called for people to vote for the Conservative Party to get Brexit done by the January 31 deadline and put all related changes in motion thereafter. The party has pegged its post-Brexit skills-based visa plans as one that would be equally applied to nationals of all countries.

    The group claimed the responsibility for Usman Khan's knife rampage on the streets of London. The news emerged as former schoolmates of the 28-year-old terrorist, who was shot dead by armed police officers, revealed he had been seen preaching under the ISIS flag as a young teenager after he dropped out of school in Stoke-on-Trent in central England.

    ​ "There should be a pan-India single wage day every month across various sectors to ensure that workers get timely payment of salaries. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is keen on this legislation to get passed soon. Similarly, we are also looking at uniform minimum wages across sectors which will safeguard better livelihood of workers," he said.

    Vaz had been the Labour Party's MP for Leicester East since 1987 but announced in a statement overnight on Sunday that he would not be seeking re-election in the December 12 General Election. "I have decided to retire after completing 32 years as the Member of Parliament for Leicester East. In that time, I have won eight general elections," Vaz said.

    On Friday evening, Sharad Pawar claimed there was consensus over Uddhav Thackeray as chief minister of the Shiv Sena-NCP alliance. On Saturday morning, even before 8am, Devendra Fadnavis was sworn in as chief minister with NCP’s Ajit Pawar as deputy chief minister. The drama has a name: grab power at any cost. What conclusions emerge?

    The 40-year-old MP won her Wigan seat in the north-west of England, holding on to one of the key bricks in the so-called "red wall" which collapsed as Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative Party won over traditional Labour Party voters across the region.
