The "Judicial reforms Bill" debate is now LIVE Watch it using this link… … Post your comments/queries
Transformation is our collective responsibility – not the PM’s job alone. Let us hope we will all accept the challenge.
The focus now should be on redesigning institutions, enforcing accountability & creating the right kind of incentives.
The challenge is, how can the State & politics change society? Govt has too many priorities and too few resources & has a limited role.
We are still largely a feudal, backward, divisive, inward-looking society. Govt & politics are but a reflection of society.
Modi is rewriting the grammar of politics, and is able to help us face our shortcoming as a society. We should welcome it.
PM’s I-Day speech is a remarkable and long-overdue conversation of a confident, authentic, self-made leader with the people.
MNV, JSV & VRK represent the best in judiciary in a generation. SC cannot claim greater moral authority or legal acumen
SC may be tempted to quash NJAC on dubious grounds. Parties, media and civil society must be alert and resist judicial overreach
Judges cannot appoint judges in a modern democracy. The NJAC model is balanced, fair & constitutional. No organ is supreme in a democracy
LokSatta brought together eminent jurists –J ustices MN Venkatachaliah, JSVerma & VR KrishnaIyer. Their wisdom resulted in 121st Amendment
Passage of 121st Amendment by LokSabha is a wise measure. Let us welcome it. FDR & LokSatta worked hard over a decade for it.

RamaKanth ji’s passionate, relentless contribution to garbage segregation & waste disposal will transform our cities in time. We salute him
Heartiest congrats to Rama Kanth ji on this well-deserved recognition. He is a model citizen & civil society leader. We are all proud.
Even more important is closing loopholes at least now, so there is no further flight of capital. We are losing $80 b annually.
There are more than 30 tax havens; we need resolve, relentless pursuit and endurance to trace Indian money all over.
Swiss decision on Indian accounts is a small step. Out of about $750 b Indian assets abroad, Swiss account for just 0.5%.
Cost recovery must be the cardinal principle of all services. Reliable, quality infrastructure is best-poverty measure.
GOI’s decision to revise rail fares is a painful necessity. If we want more and better trains, we have to pay. Under-pricing kills Railways.
Far too many precious lives are lost in accidents. Each of us should do everything possible to prevent every single untimely death.
My deepest condolences to Vijayender’s families and colleagues.
Vijayender’s sudden death in a tragic accident is shocking beyond belief. He has been a valued colleague who always called a spade a spade.
Transforming India is an imperative; it can, and must be done. The election verdict is for radical change, not status quo.
Congrats to the new Government for a clear, bold, long-overdue vision. Corruption, delays and daily travails should end in a decade.
Central theme of President’s address: Opportunity, prosperity and infrastructure; not doles & divisions. Time to change nation’s trajectory.
PM’s effort to integrate agriculture, energy, natural resources and employment is welcome. We need holistic approach in place of silos.
Karachi terrorist violence is a man-made disaster. It is a sad reminder of man's propensity to inflict needless misery in modern era.
Our hearts go out to the victims of the horrific tragedy in HP and their families. What a terrible waste of precious young lives.
Rajasthan initiative on labour law reform is necessary and welcome. Rigid laws, or more employment – India must choose wisely and now
Education, economic freedom, decentralization & rule of law – these are the only levers state has to change society, & we should pursue them
Our politics is a reflection of our society. We are all too ready to blame politicians, disregarding our failings as a society.
21st Century society & economy cannot be built on medieval attitudes. Politics of individuation should replace caste & clan.
Our society & state should deeply introspect. Most of our attitudes and future are shaped by our caste, clan, faith and prejudices.
The brutal murder of a young Muslim in Pune because of his faith is an unspeakable tragedy. I strongly condemn this inhuman act.
The accident rate as also the number of fatalities per thousand vehicles in India is the highest in the world. We must address this.
This ghastly accident should spur the Government to focus on preventing countless deaths in road accidents every year.
It is unfortunate that death snatched away an outspoken and popular politician at the height of his political career.
I express my deepest condolences to the family and colleagues of Union Minister Gopinath Mundeji.
If precious resources are squandered on populist & short term sops, A.P will miss the golden oppty to unveil a bright future for its youth.
The new govt. of A.P must focus on stimulating investment and improving infrastructure.
Union Govt must meet A.P’s revenue deficit for next 10 years. Tax exemptions for industries should be extended to 10 years and not 5
Rayalaseema and North Coastal Andhra deserve special assistance to improve infrastructure and combat poverty.
To promote industry in A.P, exemptions in corporate income tax and excise duty must be extended on par with Himachal and Uttarakhand.
.@Loksatta_Party proposed the special category status to A.P because the new state has significant revenue deficit due to loss of Hyderabad
I'm glad that the Union Govt and Planning Commission fulfilled the commitment made by former PM on according special category status to A.P.
