about the nature of the threat that we confront.Chandigarh, He asks Purab to get the CCTV footage of the day from the hotel.He is just fine bowling his off-spinners, says Gavaskar It is believable that spinners are under immense pressure due to the recent changes enforced in ODIs With less fielders on the boundaryand the ball harder than beforespinners are seen relying on variations than their stock balls Another reason could be that Ashwin has cooled off since his debut In his first 30 gamesAshwin had taken 46 wickets at an average of 2745 and strike rate of 344 In 31 games after thathis numbers have dropped off a bithis 37 wickets coming at a poorer average (3694) and strike rate (447) In the Mohali gamehis approach was evident As soon as he was slogged over long-on or mid-wicketAshwin went around the wicket With the angle taking it away from the right hander and four fielders on the off-sidehis stock deliveries were the floater and the carom ball In the over (31st)he bowled off-spin just twice to Baileywhich were both defended Though he may not be confident enough to bowl his off-spinnersthe selectors seem to have continued faith in him It will be interesting to see if Dhoni will go for the other spinner in the squadAmit Mishrawho enjoyed a good tour of Zimbabwe Another option which is no longer possible after the selectors have decided to retain the same squad through the series was Harbhajan Singh In the CLT20 final against Rajasthan Royalshe was adjudged the Man of the match for his 4/32 The 33-year-old isnt a bad

borders of indecency and demanded action against him "He should be made to wear bangles vermilion bindi and his face should be blackened" as he has "crossed borders of indecency" he told reporters after arriving here from New Delhi Lalu Prasad Yadav AFP Prasad’s sharp reactions came after Singh’s comment on Gandhi questioning whether Congress would have accepted her as a leader had she not been "white-skinned" generated a countrywide condemnation Claiming that Singh had indulged in "racist" and controversial remarks earlier too by asking "those who do not vote for Narendra Modi should go to Pakistan" the RJD Chief demanded strict action against him Prasad said a few days ago JD(U) National President Sharad Yadav had made distasteful remarks in Parliament about women with dark complexion and there was such an outcry against it across the country that he was forced to seek forgiveness "There should be a stringent law to punish people like Singh Such comments shouldn’t be taken lightly There is democracy in India and the people here become satisfied with apologies but this is not enough" he added Taking potshots at BJP and RSS he said they "harbour the mentality which is portrayed by people like Singh" PTI Prime Minister Narendra Modi is beginning his four-nation tour on Monday on a strong note The PM has his bag full this time with a few good items to showcase to foreign investors – the progress on economic reforms back home a corruption-free scam-proof three years in the office the passage of Goods and Services Tax (GST) reforms to aid the ailing banking sector such as passage of bankruptcy code and bad loan ordinance reforms in foreign investment promotion and record FDI inflows ($435 billion in 2016-17) and a few improved macro-economic indicators Politically Modi is rejuvenated after the landslide victory in the recent state polls mainly Uttar Pradesh where the PM was also the star campaigner pitting himself against the regional satraps A weak political opposition at the Centre has clearly positioned Modi as the dominant Indian leader globally at this point Prime Minister Narendra Modi PTI Modi will hardsell the India story as he meets the government and industry representatives of Germany Spain Russia and France shortly after his government completed three years in office back home The PM will likely list out other achievements like improved financial inclusion made possible through the digital push and the benefits of demonetisation of high-value notes positioning these as direct attacks on corruption and black money For sure the PM will argue how India is in a much better shape to absorb foreign investments than it was in the past citing his government’s efforts to bring in ease of doing business and more transparent tax laws in making But it won’t all be a cakewalk for him The PM will have to deal with tricky scenarios and face tough questions on the following issues: For one Modi will have to negotiate a new bilateral treaty with European countries after the old treaty was scrapped in December 2015 In fact Germany Modi’s first stop is among the countries with which India has terminated bilateral investment protection treaties (BITs) Germany has already made a strong pitch for renegotiating a new EU-India free trade agreement (FTA) while reaffirming its support for India’s bid for membership of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) Though scrapping of old treaty will not affect existing investments from India in Germany or vice-versa as it will be protected for the next 15 years new investments will not have any protection until a new treaty is signed IANS reported quoting German Ambassador Martin Ney The Indian government should "sit down as soon as possible" to negotiate a free trade agreement Modi will be confronted with questions on the fate and immediacy of the fresh agreement Second the real gains of Modi’s foreign policies have been questioned back home with more developed countries moving to protectionist mode and kicking out foreigners including Indians from their workforce and employing more locals in labour-intensive industries While developed countries fight for free flow of capital with emerging markets like India they do show a double standard when it comes to free flow of labour as pointed out by Sanjay Ghosh Labour Lawyer and columnist in this article in DNA This Ghosh says is also a foreign policy failure of Modi and the inability of this government to put pressure on foreign governments to calibrate their policies taking into account India’s interest Can Modi change things for better for Indian workers abroad Third On the issue of national security and economic dominance in the region India is facing major challenges from its neighbors Pakistan and China Pakistan’s proxy-fight on the border and China’s strategic steps in Pakistan to consolidate its position in the region have caused serious concerns to India Particularly China’s not-so-friendly approach to India gaining strength internationally necessitates Modi to have stronger relations with the US and Europen region to take care of its interests globally Can Modi pitch for stronger ties on security collaborations and anti-terrorism operations during his trip and offer India as an emerging alternative to the China in the region as a manufacturing hub and economic powerhouse Fourth While Modi will be lauded for the progress his government made to build a corruption-free reform-focused environment he might face unpleasant questions on his government’s failure in generating enough jobs to millions of youth entering workforce every year Modi is being blamed for driving the economy through a phase of jobless growth even as the economy is pacing above 7 percent on the paper Unemployment has actually risen during Modi’s three years and the protectionist environment abroad lack of major revival in the economy have resulted in additional job losses adding to the challenges of this government The highlight of Modi’s speeches during the four-nation tour is likely to be his achievement on making the GST a reality and the government’s efforts to simplify myriad laws for foreign investors including recent abolition of the FIPB (Foreign Investment Promotion Board) Improvement in exports in recent months FDI inflows low fiscal deficit a benign inflation environment and a break from the old licence raj would also figure in the PM’s speeches In the three years of his term PM Modi has also positioned himself as a good salesman to sell the India story abroad Will Modi’s sales-pitch work in India’s favour this time One needs to wait and watch Washington: A coalition airstrike in Syria has killed a senior Islamic State leader who has been responsible for moving fighters and weapons from Libya to Syria the Pentagon has said Representational image AP A senior US official said yesterday that Tariq bin Tahar al-‘Awni al-Harzi a Tunisian and another fighter with

strikes near al Hasakah hit an Islamic State tactical unit and destroyed a vehicle and two antenna arrays Last September the US Treasury Department imposed economic sanctions on al-Harzi and seven other individuals that it said have helped finance or facilitate the movement of foreign fighters joining the Islamic State and the Nusra Front Both groups have been targeted by coalition strikes in

lakh who make for 234 percent of the total workers At a time when Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik too good at citing figures in interviews about his government’s "achievements" leaves no opportunity to boast that the state that was recording -702 percent annual growth rate in the field of agriculture in 2000-2001 when he took over has reached 1324 percent by 2014-15 The state government with pride

agitation by wearing black badges and decided to be on a hunger strike on 3 January and intensify the stir it if the government still does not give them their due With the rural poll bugle sounded for

recent nuclear test in January a US North Korea monitoring website reported on Wednesday The 38 North website run by the Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies said such activity could be carried out as part of preparations for a nuclear test as was the case in January or to conceal such preparations It said commercial satellite images of the West Portal of the Punggye-ri test site taken on Tuesday showed two small ore carts on a track crossing a road from a tunnel entrance "The presence of the two carts . and the absence of any notable changes in the spoil

demonstrated with its fourth nuclear detonation this past January the ability to conduct detonations on short notice while masking indicators of its preparations from satellite view" A South Korean official declined to comment on any new intelligence reports of activities at the site but said the military was on high alert over the possibility that the North could conduct a nuclear test at any
