Don’t Agree With Nitish’s Decision on JD(U)-BJP Govt in Bihar, It’s Unfortunate, Says Sharad Yadav

New Delhi, July 31: Senior Janata Dal United (JDU) leader Sharad Yadav says he doesn’t agree with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s decision to break the alliance with Lalu Yadav’s Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Congress and go with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the state as it goes against the mandate of the people of Bihar.

“I don’t agree with the decision in Bihar, it’s unfortunate. The mandate by the people was not for this,” said Sharad Yadav, who was JD(U) president until last October.

Observers said Sharad Yadav was upset with Kumar’s decision to resurrect the alliance with BJP in Bihar – an alliance that was split in 2013 after the BJP indicated that Narendra Modi would be named the prime ministerial candidate of the National Democratic Alliance. Breaking the Mahagatbandhan, a two-year-old political experiment in Bihar, Nitish Kumar said was inspired by “conscience” after RJD chief Lalu Yadav and his son Tejashwi, who was also Bihar’s Deputy chief minister was named by the Central Bureau of Investigation in a graft case.

दिल्ली से सटे फरीदाबाद और गुड़गांव में भी बारिश से बदले मौसम का असर देखा जा रहा है. नोएडा में भी झमाझम बारिश ने लोगों को घरों से बाहर निकलकर मौज-मस्ती के लिए मजबूर कर दिया है. ऐसी खबरें आ रही हैं कि लोग फैमिली सहित छुट्टी पर निकल रहे हैं.

Income Tax Officials Will Now Keep an Eye on Your Facebook Posts

Mumbai, July 31: The government will begin collecting all the virtual information of a person’s pictures uploaded on social networking site Facebook. These pictures of one’s shiny new car or an exotic holiday cottage may lead the Income Tax officials to the person’s door. With this, the government will look at the residents’ spending patterns with income declarations, reports TOI. This is called ‘Project Insight’ and it will complement the world’s largest biometric identity database and India’s most ambitious tax overhaul as policymakers try to get more people to pay up. It took seven years to build at a cost of about Rs 1,000 crore.

The tax officials will spot those people who pay too little tax without raiding offices and homes only by viewing their post activities on Facebook. “This will put an end to harassment by tax officials as there will be no public interface,” said Amit Maheshwari, managing partner at an accountancy firm near New Delhi. This method is already used by countries like Belgium, Canada and Australia to unearth the tax evasion that sometimes goes undetected without technology. Finance ministry spokesman D S Malik declined to comment on Project Insight. The BJP government said last year it had contracted L&T Infotech Ltd to help build the network and boost voluntary compliance.
