TERI Chief RK Pachauri allowed to resume work

A Delhi court hearing the sexual harassment case against TERI Director Dr RK Pachauri has allowed him to resume work and visit the TERI offices all over India except in Gurgaon and the head office in central Delhi. This comes a day after the Delhi Police had asked the court to cancel Dr Pachauri's anticipatory bail, accusing him of trying to influence witnesses. He has been accused by a 29-year-old research colleague of sexual harassment. On Left, Right and Centre, we speak to both his defence team and the prosecution on their reactions to this decision.

Fields of despair: Playing politics with farmers' lives?

On Left, Right and Centre, our special focus is on the crisis amongst farmers. First unseasonal rain, now deficient rain has pushed farmers to the brink in many parts of the country. Today, Karnataka's government is grappling with an alarming increase in farmer suicides, 90 since April. And in Maharashtra desperate farmers are asking for permission to kill themselves. Central Maharashtra and Marathwada are the worst hit. Opposition parties say nearly 2000 farmers have committed suicide since the BJP took over. So what has changed? But in Karnataka it's for the ruling Congress to answer the same question.
