Tonight on The Buck Stops Here:
Madhya Pradesh chief minister's no to eggs: Sentiment vs Science?
Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh are among states that say no to eggs at anganwadis. On The Buck Stops Here, we debate: is this about sentiments over nutrition? UNICEF says India has 1/3rd of the world malnourished children. So should egg be an essential eating for children or are its nutrition values exaggerated? Also, in a multi-cultural country like India, should states be allowed to choose what they serve?
'Amazed at Chidambaram's ignorance': Piyush Goyal on former minister's critique of coal auctions
On The Buck Stops Here, Union Power & Coal Minister Piyush Goyal slammed P Chidambaram's critique of coal auctions saying he was "amazed at former finance minister's ignorance". "The same mines were given free of charge by UPA government under Finance Minister Chidambaram... then (he) came up with a fancy theory that there is no loss because coal is in the womb of Mother Earth," he said. Accusing Rahul Gandhi of playing "downright low-grade divisive politics", Mr Goyal said that the Congress Vice President in Mhow had "shown his ignorance that it is his family, his government and his party which is the hand behind the failed social welfare programmes for the community that Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar wanted to have the upliftment of." He said he was "surprised " at Naina Lal Kidwai's statement that PM & government was not connecting enough with the Indian industry. "Different delegations from corporates in India have met him (PM)," Mr Goyal said, adding that Prime Minister is always open to good ideas.
