Tonight on The Buck Stops Here:
Supreme Court's no to Jallikattu: Will government bring ordinance?
After the Supreme Court stayed the Centre's notification lifting the ban on Jallikattu, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa shot off a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to immediately bring an ordinance to allow the bull-taming sport. On The Buck Stops Here, we debate: will the Centre accede to Jayalalithaa's request? And will it 'lock horns' with the Supreme Court?
Terrorists more likely to survive in Pakistan than me: Ex-Pak envoy to US
It's less than 72 hours to go for the scheduled Foreign Secretary-level talks between India and Pakistan. Will they happen or not? The suspense remains. Meanwhile, there has been mixed messaging from Pakistan on the Pathankot terror probe. While Pakistan media has reported a series of raids including one on Jaish chief Masood Azhar's brother-in-law, Pakistan has reportedly asked for more proof from India. Today, a New York Times journalist was raided in Pakistan. This while India's most wanted Hafiz Saeed and Masood Azhar continue to roam free. On The Buck Stops Here, we debate: with this mixed messaging where does India-Pakistan equation stand? Speaking in the show, former Pakistan ambassador to the United States Husain Haqqani says that it is less likely for a dissident like him to survive in Pakistan than a terrorist.
