V.K.Singh has reached Pyongyang for talks with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) government, the official Korean newspaper Rodong Sinmun reported on WednesdayDuring the visit on May 15-16, that was previously unannounced, Mr. Singh met with DPRK Vice President Kim Yong Dae, and the Foreign and Culture ministers on “a range of issues covering political, regional, economic, educational and cultural cooperation between the two countries,” a statement from the MEA said.

Who will be new Karnataka Chief Minister 2018? Ball now lies in the Governor’s court.

Outgoing Congress Chief Minister Siddaramiah—who had spent over two and a half decades in the Janata Dal and had a bitter parting with the party, had to announce the decision of the Congress to offer unconditional support to the JD(S) leader Kumaraswamy to become Chief Minister! On paper, the Congress, JD(S) and independents enjoy majority. Not to lose out on an opportunity to place the Congress on the defensive, the BJP has gone ahead and staked its claim to form the government on the ground that it is the single largest party in the newly elected Assembly. The ball now lies in the Governor’s court.
The split verdict in Karnataka raises many questions. At the outset, it clearly means that none of the three major players was able to secure majority support across the state. No party was able to establish a pan-Karnataka presence.

In an interesting fact , The micro-blogging platform registered over 30 lakh tweets related to Karnataka assembly polls in the past three weeks, with the…

BJP MLA suggests that child marriage will help end ‘love jihad’

The “disease” of waiting for children to turn 18 before getting them married has led to “love jihad”, a Bharatiya Janata Party MLA in Madhya Pradesh said on Saturday. To save their daughters from getting trapped, parents should fix their marriages early, Gopal Parmar told ANI. “Love jihad” is a term frequently used by Hindutva organisations to allege a conspiracy by Muslim men to marry women from other religions solely to convert them to Islam.

Parmar said no one had heard of divorces when child marriages were in practice, The Indian Express reported. Marriages worked because parents “used to apply their mind” and find “compatible children” for matches, he said.

Rural earnings have dropped sharply since November 2014

Rural earnings have dropped sharply since November 2014. An RBI paper shows wages in the farm and non-farm sectors have grown 5.6% and 6.5%, respectively, in the last three-and-a-half years, down from 17% and 15% between October 2007 and October 2013. The reason? The underperformance of the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme. “This phase is also characterised by low inflation occasionally surpassing growth in nominal rural wages,” the report adds. Other factors that contributed to the slide: a steep fall in prices of food and agricultural commodities, and back-to-back droughts in 2014-15 and 2015-16.
