Government’s misleading spin on the 2G presidential opinion shows its dishonest intent.
The government, notably Mr. Sibal and Chidambaram have gone on an overdrive after the Supreme Court’s opinion on the 2G presidential reference to project the judgement as a vindication of the government’s policies and manner in which they have been allocating spectrum, coal and other valuable natural resources worth lakhs of crores to private companies.

The 2G judgment merely said that natural resources like Spectrum (meaning scarce and …

Knowledge is Grace Nitin Gadkari gets second term as BJP president September 28, 2012
The Bharatiya Janata Party national council on Friday approved an amendment to the party’s constitution to allow a second consecutive term for its president.
Hitherto, a BJP president could only serve a single three-year term.
The amendment to Section 21 of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s constitution says that any eligible member can hold the post of the president for two consecutive terms of three years each.
However, former BJP chief Venkaiah Naidu, who moved the amendment, clarified that this does not mean that the term of any president will automatically be extended for a second time.
He said this was only an enabling provision.
The amendment was adopted during the party’s national executive meeting in Mumbai in May this year and was ratified by the national council here, said a party functionary.
The amendment is likely to benefit the current BJP president Nitin …
