National March To Parliament
The Budget session of the Parliament has begun. The Modi govt has started the session by introducing its own version of ‘Land Grab Bill’ to rob the land and livelihood of the farmers, tribals and forest dwellers, fisher people, rural and urban poor-thus signalling in no uncertain terms in whose interest Modi is going to ‘Make’ India and whose life and livelihood he is determined to Unmake. For the students and youth, Modi slogan of ‘achchhe din’ has unfolded …

Land Grab and the Lie of ‘Employment, Development’

The Modi Government’s Land Acquisition Ordinance nullifies the need for consent and social impact assessment for land acquisition for industrial corridors, security, rural infrastructure, housing and related infrastructure, and social infrastructure including projects under government and PPP models. Thus defined, the category of ‘exemptions from consent and social impact assessment’ is so broad and sweeping that it effectively opens the flood gate for land grab without consent by any public/private entity under any pretext!
The condition under Section 101 of the 2013 law, which requires that land not used for 5 …

It is amply clear that the Modi …

Under all the hype, however, lies the plain fact that the Modi government has been busy ever since it came to power in know-towing to American strategic and corporate interests including US nuclear lobbies as well as US based multinational pharmaceutical …

And now, the Sangh Parivar is at it yet again – this time, they have grand plans of intimidation and hooliganism on 14 February, Valentine’s Day. The Hindu Mahasabha has openly “warned” that couples found celebrating the “foreign festival” in public will face a variety of “punishments”. According to the Hindu Mahasabha, if couples are found with roses in their hands, or if they are merely seen together in malls and parks, this is the fate …
