Chidambaram slams Modi, calls him encounter minister

In a fresh war of words, Finance Minister P Chidambaram on Thursday hit out at Narendra Modi dubbing him a compulsive liar and an encounter chief minister.

How to make the agriculture growth story sustainable

Finance Minister P Chidambaram’s claim in his interim Budget speech of ‘stellar performance’ of the agriculture sector is based on numbers, though it needs to be analysed from different perspectives to get a true picture. There is no doubt that agricultural gross domestic product may grow by 4.6 per cent this year. The past 10 years’ average, too, may work out close to four per cent.

Why PC's son may be fighting a losing battle in TN

In the 2009 election, P Chindambaram won the Sivaganga seat by a narrow margin. Then the Congress was in alliance with the ruling DMK. This time his son Karti is battling the seat without the alliance. India's abstention at the UNHRC on an anti-Lanka resolution will further fuel Tamil anger against the Congress party. This leaves the finance minster sulking and his son facing an uphill political debut, says N Sathiya Moorthy. The strategic community in India cannot but acknowledge India’s ...
