If the prime minister doesn't plan to step down post the FDI fiasco, he should get down to real governance -- and he can start by having the numerous clowns in his court shut up, says Saisuresh Sivaswamy. W hen governments feel the ground shifting under their feet, they resort to diversionary tactics. Dr Manmohan Singh's government is faced with a groundswell against it -- and not all of it is online. In fact, the vituperation against it online -- which has forced Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal to advocate curbs on it -- is but a reflection of the popular disenchantment with the United Progressive Alliance II. Which, if you go back to the heady days of May-June 2009, needn't have come to this sorry pass. Why did it, is a question the presiding triumvirate in the establishment can best answer; hacks like me can at best read the portents and offer opinions. If Verdict 2004 was a surprise one, so was Choice 2004. Dr Singh, pulled out of relative obscurity and promoted to the … [Read more...] about Dr Singh, the prime ministership of India is a political job

REUTERS/Amanda Perobelli RIO DE JANEIRO — Brazil is on the verge of registering 400,000 coronavirus deaths this week, after the Health Ministry on Wednesday reported 3,163 new COVID-19 deaths in 24 hours, bringing the official death toll to 398,185. Brazil is quickly catching up with the world’s worst death toll in the United States, which has seen more than 570,000 casualties in total but less than a thousand deaths per day in recent weeks. Brazil’s COVID-19 crisis has spiraled out of control in recent months, with patchy restrictions on circulation and a highly contagious new virus variant driving infections. Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, a far-right former army captain, has drawn harsh … [Read more...] about Brazil nears 400,000 COVID-19 deaths

India, a country with 1.4 billion people, has been gripped by a deadly second wave of the coronavirus pandemic. But even as its healthcare system gasps for breath and its crematoriums burn with thousands of funeral pyres, its leaders are scrambling to censor the internet. Last week, India’s IT ministry ordered Twitter to block more than 50 tweets from being seen in the country. Days later, the New York Times , the Wall Street Journal , and the Times of India reported that Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube had also taken down posts that were critical of the government. Over the last week, ordinary people running WhatsApp and Telegram groups to help people find medical oxygen and hospital beds have complained of threats demanding that they shut them down, and police in the state of Uttar Pradesh filed a complaint against a man who asked for medical oxygen for his dying grandfather on Twitter, claiming that he was “spreading misleading information.” On Wednesday, posts with … [Read more...] about COVID-19 Is Devastating India.
