Maharashtra assembly polls: Pankaja Munde brought PM because she is scared, says Dhananjay Munde

4 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ News  
With less than a week left for polling, Parli Assembly constituency challenger Dhananjay Munde is making full use of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit last Thursday. The NCP candidate is fully using the PM's visit to his advantage. The spin he is giving Modi's rally is this: My cousin Pankaja is so scared of losing against me that she had to bring the PM to campaign for her. "The two-time MLA has done no work despite being a cabinet minister and so she is going to lose," Dhananjay, the leader of the opposition in the legislative council, told mid-day. "She is so frightened that she got the PM to campaign for her." Dhananjay Munde He could be accused of exaggeration, but only a little. Beed, which has been the late Gopinath Munde's bastion for decades, does seem like it is witnessing a close battle between the cousins. And it's become a prestige battle. Even BJP president came to Beed to campaign for Pankaja. There is also a numerical reason for NCP to be buoyant. In 2014, Panka..

Every fairytale begins with once upon a time but this story starts with – 100 years ago the Western India Automobile Association (WIAA) held its first meeting at the Taj Mahal hotel in Colaba in their Ballroom. The date of that meeting was October 15, 1919. Hundred years later, yesterday (October 15), they held a meeting at the same time and same place. Nostalgia in the air You could feel the sense of occasion and smell history in the air, as Nitin Dossa, WIAA chairman, started speaking. "It is great to be here, at this historic point in time for WIAA." Though the event was quite nostalgic, all speakers touched upon contemporary issues as well. Dossa said, "The RTO and the WIAA are in an arranged marriage. Both cannot do without each other. The WIAA supports the heavy fines imposed on traffic rule violators as part of the new Motor Vehicle Act. These are necessary if we are to bring down accident rates. When we were younger, the sight of a traffic constable would scare us. Today,..

Small business owners have little hope from Maharashtra assembly polls

4 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ News  
It has been almost three years since demonetisation and two years since good and services tax (GST) implementation, but city's small businesses have still not revived from the economic shock. From manufacturers of garments and leather at Dharavi to members of the Koli and the Qureshi communities, all are counting their losses since note ban in 2016. They now have little expectation of revival as they see no hopeful candidates for the upcoming assembly elections. Pratap Rai Harjani, 65, who sells iron shutter gates in Dharavi, said, "Before demonetisation, I used to get more than 50 orders in a month but now the number has dropped to 25," said Harjani. Abdul Malik, 43, who makes wallets, sent his wife and six children back home in Bihar a couple of years back to save money. Malik once used to get orders for 3,000-4,000 wallets, but now he barely sells about 1000-1200. Closed shops at Dharavi.

US House passes Hong Kong 'Democracy Act'; move may infuriate China further

4 hours ago  
Business / Business Standard/ Latest News  
The US House of Representatives on Tuesday passed a bill sought by pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong that aims to defend civil rights in the semi-autonomous territory. The Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, which will now move to a similar vote in the Senate before it can become law, has drawn rare bipartisan support in a polarized Congress. Its passage is likely to further aggravate China which has accused "external forces" of fuelling weeks of unrest in the global financial hub. "Today we're simply urging the Chinese president and the Hong Kong Chief Executive, Carrie Lam, to faithfully honor the government's promises" that Hong Kong's rights and autonomy would be protected, Republican Representative Chris Smith, prime sponsor of the bill, said on the House floor. Millions have taken to the streets of Hong Kong, initially against a now-dropped bid by its leaders to allow extraditions to the authoritarian Chinese mainland. The months-long movement has expanded into a..

'Why do city people grumble about paying Rs 50 for onion?'

5 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ News  
The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party-Shiv Sena combine may be confident of coasting to an easy win in the Maharashtra assembly elections on the back of the abrogation of Article 370 in faraway Jammu and Kashmir. But there are still pockets where they will have to address real on-ground issues. Nashik, which has some of the country's biggest onion markets, is one of them and the farmers of the region are an angry lot these days. Just a few weeks ago, they were looking at making some profit by selling their produce at a five-year high price of Rs 4,000 per quintal. But with an eye on the urban voters, the Centre on September 29 banned export and imposed crippling stock limits for retailers (100 quintal) and wholesalers (500 quintal). As a direct result, prices have been steadily dropping, and stood at around Rs 2,800 on Tuesday.
