Chidambaram backs 'outstanding' Rajan, says Congress has full faith in him
Refraining from commenting on the recent demand by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy to remove Raghuram Rajan as the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor, former finance minister P. Chidambaram on Saturday called Rajan as 'one of the most outstanding economists of the world' and affirmed his party's 'full confidence' in him. Taking a critical view of the state of the economy under the NDA's two-year rule, Chidambaram highlighted a number of shortcomings of the BJP-led government in a press briefing. "The UPA Government appointed one of the most outstanding economists of the world as the Governor of the RBI. We placed full confidence in him at that time and we continue to place full confidence in him today," he said at the briefing when asked about the Swamy seeking Rajan's ouster. Chidambaram's remark assumes significance in the wake of the recent barrage of onslaught by Swamy on Rajan. Reiterating that Rajan must be removed from his post at the earliest, Swamy had earlier this month written to Prime Minister Modi, asserting that he was shocked by the deliberate attempt by the RBI Governor to 'wreck' the Indian economy. Appealing to the Prime Minister to take action, Swamy added that he could not stand to watch seeing someone appointed by the UPA regime who is 'against Indian economic interests' to be kept in this post when there are so many other nationalist minded experts available.(ANI)

A first: EC cancels polls over bribed voters

Asian Age 4 hours 10 minutes ago

The Election Commission (EC) on Saturday decided to rescind the notification and conduct polls afresh to two Tamil Nadu Assembly constituencies in due course of time following evidence of the use...
EC recommends to TN Governor cancellation of polls to 2 seats
In a first, the Election Commission today recommended cancelling polls to two Tamil Nadu assembly seats following evidence of use of money to influence voters, saying the atmosphere there is "seriously vitiated" to hold the democratic exercise at this stage. From these two constituencies, cash of over Rs 8 crore has been seized. Authorities also recovered over 2,500 litres of liquor, besides gifts like silver, dhotis and sarees meant during searches. While cancellation of polls normally takes place following evidence that rigging, muscle power and booth capturing was done to influence polls, this is the first time the poll body is recommending cancellation of polls because of voters being bribed with money, EC said. The Commission has recommended to Tamil Nadu Governor K Rosaiah to cancel the notification regarding holding of polls to Aravkurichi and Thanjavur Assembly constituencies. The Commission also said it will recommend to the Governor a revised schedule to hold the polls afresh for the two constituencies in due course of time. In a detailed 29-page recommendation, the Commission said Rosaiahs observation that the postponement of elections to the two constituencies will deprive the members to be elected from these constituencies to vote in the coming Rajya Sabha elections "is an extraneous consideration inasmuch as the members elected on the basis of an election which is not free and fair would not be true representatives of the electors of these constituencies." It also said that "there is no requirement under the law that for conducting the elections to the Rajya Sabha, all the seats in the legislative assembly should be filled." Earlier, EC had on two occasions postponed polls to Aravkurichi and Thanjavur Assembly constituencies following reports of large scale distribution of money and gifts to voters by the candidates and political parties. Initially, the polls were postponed from May 16 to May 23. On May 21, EC had decided to once again postpone the polls to June 13. Tamil Nadu went to Assembly polls on May 16 when AIADMK returned to power for a second consecutive term. EC said it took the decision after considering reports of observers, special teams of central observers, report of the special team of observers of Aravkurichi and Thanjavur constituencies and representations of contesting candidates. "...the EC is satisfied that the election process in the two constituencies, because of inducing electors by candidates and political parties by offering money and other gifts to woo them in their favour, is seriously vitiated and cannot be allowed to proceed and ought to be rescinded so that fresh elections may be conducted de novo in these two constituencies when the atmosphere becomes conducive to the holding of free and fair elections after a reasonable lapse of time," the Commission said.

Dhaka, May 28 (IANS) Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is unhappy with his performance in the Indian Premier League for the Kolkata Knight Riders. Shakib took five wickets in 10 matches and failed to take more than one in any match for Kolkata, who lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad in the eliminator on Wednesday, reports bdnews24.com. His average this edition was 48.60 at an economy rate of 7.43 runs per over. The numbers are significantly higher than his Twenty20 career average (20.59) and economy rate (6.74). The 29-year-old ace allrounder did notch his IPL topscore - 66 not out against Gujarat Lions - but it was his only knock of any substance as he scored just 114 runs this year. "The team performed well in the tournament but individually I could have done much better. I didn't really do anything to feel pleased," Shakib said after reaching here on Friday. Having played three tournaments on the bounce - the Asia Cup, the World T20 and IPL - he said he is exhausted. But he will get little time for rest because of the ongoing Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League. Abahani Limited, who are placed seventh in the points table, will be happy to have the services of Shakib, who is likely to play for the club for the first time after six years, against Prime Doleshwar on Saturday. "My plan now is to go home and rest. I don't know what situation Abahani are in. We'll see," he said. --IANS sam/vm

Hindalco quarterly net leaps

The Telegraph 8 hours 33 minutes ago

Hindalco Industries' March-quarter standalone net profit has surged 123 per cent to Rs 356 crore from Rs 160 crore a year ago.
Reliance Infra Q4 net rises 44 pc to Rs 660 cr
Reliance Infrastructure today reported a 43.72 per cent increase in consolidated net profit for the March quarter at Rs 659.85 crore on the back of improvement in operations. The company had reported a net profit of Rs 459.11 crore in the January-March period last fiscal. Its consolidated net income from operations for the quarter declined marginally to Rs 4,469.28 crore from Rs 4,596.09 crore. "The increase in profit is a reflection of improvement in operations. It also reflects some one-time jump through EPC billing, the cost of which was incurred earlier," the companys Acting Chief Executive Officer Lalit Jalan told reporters here. For the full fiscal, the company reported a net profit of Rs 1,974.56 crore and a total revenue of Rs 17,051.2 crore against Rs 1,800.18 crore and Rs 17,159.49 crore respectively in 2014-15. During the year, it acquired management control of Reliance Defence and Engineering, the erstwhile Pipavav Defence and Offshore Engineering. "We have also signed final binding agreement with Birla Corporation for sale of our 5.6 MTPA cement assets. Our asset monetisation plan of roads and Mumbai power business is also on track," he said. Jalan further said the company expects all the three transactions to be completed in 2016-17 itself. "We have shortlisted two consortia for the roads projects and the cement business deal is expected to be completed between July-August period. With these three transactions, we believe we will be able to bring down our debt significantly and on the standalone basis, we will be debt free in this fiscal itself," he added. On consolidated basis, the debt of the company stands at around Rs 25,500 crore, while the standalone debt is around Rs 15,000 crore. Reliance Infra has signed a non-binding term sheet with PSP Investments of Canada for 49 per cent stake sale in Mumbai power business. On the Mumbai power distribution business, he said the company recovered Rs 866 crore arrears in 2015-16 and till date recovered Rs 2,248 crore. It added 64,800 new consumers in 2015-16, taking the total number to 29.5 lakh. He said the government has also allotted land at Mihan (Nagpur) in Maharashtra to manufacture aerospace equipment and naval combat systems. The company has also received 35 industrial licences for missiles, ammunition, land and naval systems. "Our focus will be on air defence systems, including missiles and large aerostats through joint venture with Rafael Advanced Systems Ltd (Israel), which has an opportunity worth USD 10 billion over next 10 years. "Besides, we will also focus on aircraft manufacturing through partnership agreement with Antonov (Ukraine) for military and civil use, an opportunity worth USD 5 billion over next 10 years," Jalan said. The company is also looking at tapping large scale ammunition market globally and in India, which has an opportunity of over USD 10 billion over next 10 years, he said. "We have already bid for projects worth Rs 84,000 crore in the defence space," he added.
