It seems to be a good move from Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government. On April 10, 2018, the government passed an Ordinance named ‘Uttar Pradesh Self-financed Independent School Ordinance 2018.’to rein in the private schools in the state.

Schools in Yogi’s Uttar Pradesh will not be able to change the uniform for five years

The Ordinance allows the government to keep a tab on the arbitrary fees hike by self-financed schools in the state. We can put it simple like this. Private schools cannot increase the fees according to their vested interests as per the new law.

Schools in Yogi’s Uttar Pradesh will not be able to increase the fees for five years. Also, they cannot change the school’s uniform for five years. The schools are restricted to charge any kind of capitation fee from students.

Before increasing the fees, the schools need to consult a regulatory committee, and the hike percentage is limited to eight. If the government can implement the new law in the right mode, it would be a great relief for the parents in the state. Also, it will put some limits to the process of commercialization of education

Development is the ultimate solution for most of the intense problems in a society.  Marginalization and little consideration are ‘grand’ enough to nurture a feeling of oddity in the minds of people,  irrespective of their caste,  colour,  language or religion.  So the best thing is addressing them, be engaged with problems in terms of constructive ideas and developmental initiatives.
Zojila Tunnel will be the longest road tunnel in India. And, more importantly, it will be the longest bidirectional road tunnel project in Asia
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modified knows this very well.  That’s why the other day he expressed his belief in development during his Kashmir visit.  Modi has said that ‘development’ is the solution for Kashmir’s problems.
What the Modi government is doing now in Jammu and Kashmir, from an economic perspective, matters a lot.  The flagging off ceremony of Zojila Tunnel project on Saturday, 19 May, makes great sense for the very cause of development.  Zojila Tunnel in Kashmir is going to be  a path-breaking initiative in the state, marking a big leap in the history of infrastructure development, cementing a sense of belonging and integration among the people.
Once it becomes operational,  Zojila Tunnel will be the longest road tunnel in India. And, more importantly, it will be the longest bidirectional road tunnel project in Asia.
The construction of this 14-km tunnel will make all-weather connectivity between Srinagar,  Kargil and Leh.  The Rs.6800 crore project will reduce the travel time to cross the Zojila pass from 3.5 hours to just 15 minutes.

This will be a great advantage for India, even from a strategic point of view, as Pakistan still believes they can play misadventures in Kashmir.

Economic boom

The implementation of the project will result in creating hundreds of job opportunities,  once it is completed, there happens to be a remarkable turnaround in the tourism sector of the state.  Economic activities will strengthen, there will be increase in the number of tourists visiting the state.

Modi

Indeed, it’s good news for Indian prime minister Narendra Modi, when the assembly election for Karnataka, a south Indian state under the rule of Indian National Congress, is at the corner. Forbes magazine has included Narendra Modi in the list of world’s most powerful people this year. Modi has secured a commendable spot at nine in the top ten list, just behind Saudi Arabia’s crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

According to Forbes magazine, the list is topped by Chinese supremo Xi Jinping followed by Russian president Vladimir Putin and US president Donald Trump. German chancellor Angela Merkel comes at fourth spot followed by US billionaire Jeff Bezos.

It should be noted that for the last four years India’s fiscal deficit has been less than 1 per cent of GDP

When it comes to India, Modi’s elevation to the top ten is something to celebrate as he still remains a controversial leader for many so-called intellectuals, both in India and outside.

Why Modi matters

Forbes magazine observes that Modi has raised himself as a global leader, playing a profound role in combating climate change and global warming.  The top rank needs to be seen as recognition for Modi as he has taken some risky moves to change India’s economic scenario since he attained power in May 2014.

Modi has succeeded in establishing himself as a global leader challenging China’s Xi Jinping in Asia with his diplomatic masterstrokes and bold policies.  In an article appeared on Forbes website, its contributor Salvatore Babones state that India’s tremendous achievement in balancing the fiscal deficit gives Modi an edge in the upcoming general elections.

According to him India is going to achieve a fiscal deficit under .2 per cent of GDP (Gross Domestic Product) in 2017-2018 fiscal year. It should be noted that for the last four years India’s fiscal deficit has been less than 1 per cent of GDP.

The economy has recovered at a tremendous pace, marking India again the fastest growing major economy in the world

Now, most of the international financial organisations are upbeat about Indian economy, putting the financial figures for the second most populous country on earth in an ambitious manner. Indian economy has witnessed some structural changes in the past four years of Modi government including the biggest tax reform, GST (Goods and Services Tax). Even though this resulted in a temporary slowdown, the economy has recovered at a tremendous pace, marking India again the fastest growing major economy in the world.
