Country needs movements like Anna’s at every step in our social life—Mohan Bhagwat

By Virag Pachpore

"THE movement of Anna Hazare proved to be much needed island of faith in the current spate of corruption that virtually wiped out the hopes and shattered the faith of common man in the system. The success and spontaneous popular support the movement received countrywide was an indication of the crisis of ethos and identity confronting the Indian society today,” said Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh Sarsanghachalak Shri Mohan Bhagwat in Pune on August 30.    more >

Politics of fuel price rise
Government makes huge profit by taxing the poor consumer

By SS Nair

PRICES of petrol and diesel were increased number of times within a year, that too often steeply. LPG prices were also increased though less often. According to newspaper reports, the central and some state governments claim that they have no role in the price hikes. This is one of the blatant examples of deceiving people.    more >

Who will speak for the country?

THE MLAs of the Tamil Nadu assembly by passing a unanimous resolution pleading for clemency for the LTTE terror convicts have sent an extremely dangerous message. With a little political pressure, these murderers—after the finale of a protracted legal battle—can subvert the court verdict, seek to undermine the due process of justice and thereby escape the gallows they deserved.    more >

Let Parliament protect what UPA lost: Credibility
By Amba Charan Vashishth

PARLIAMENT is supreme, sovereign. It is its exclusive prerogative to legislate. It derives its sovereignty from the people —”We, the people” who have given unto themselves the Constitution and thereby delegated their sovereignty to its organs, including the Parliament. Still, the ultimate sovereignty resides with the people.    more >

—MAYA MISHRA, C-403, Anandlok Society, Mayur Vihar-1, Delhi:110 091
