Mann ki Baat with Narendra Modi

Narendra Modi is his own man and likewise he has positioned his role as a Prime Minister in an entirely new dimension – unseen and unheard of in this country.

It was [...]

While the US President Barack Obama indicated that Modi out-styled Michelle Obama during the latter’s India visit, a US [...]

One Year of Modi Government: A Look Back

It has almost been a year since Narendra Modi assumed the post of India’s Prime Minister.

While criticising Modi, it needs to be taken into consideration that it is not entirely possible to bring about a drastic [...]

Garib Kalyan Yojnaye

The government cares for the poor. At least, that’s what BJP has been trying to convey through its slew of initiatives within months of holding the reins of governance. A party that came to the helm of power on the pro-poor plank is leaving no stone unturned to stay true to its commitment.
