Last lap hurdles in Jammu and Kashmir: Can BJP and PDP bridge ideological divide?

Two months after Assembly elections, Jammu and Kashmir is still waiting for a government. As negotiations between BJP and Peoples Democratic Party enter the final phase, talks have hit a last minute hurdle. PDP wants a written assurance that "present status of Jammu and Kashmir will be unchanged". Will Prime Minister Modi intervene on the Common Minimum Programme to build on Vajpayee legacy? And is PDP driving a harder bargain with the BJP after the Delhi verdict?

Government vs Greenpeace: In national interest or crushing dissent?

An aggressive government has defended the off-loading of Greenpeace activist Priya Pillai from a flight to London last week. The Home Ministry in its affidavit has said that Ms Pillai's deposition before foreign Parliament would be prejudicial to national interest and leave India open to sanctions regime. On The Buck Stops Here, we debate: is this in national interest or is it about crushing dissent? Can one activist really threaten the might of the Indian government on global stage?
