'Secular' Debate: Tribute to Ambedkar or Tu Tu Main Main?

It was supposed to be a special sitting of Parliament to commemorate Constitution Day. But Home Minister Rajnath Singh's comments on the word secular made it a confrontation day. The minister said Ambedkar didn't want the word in the Preamble and that it was now the most misused word in politics. The Congress hit back with its leader Mallikarjun Kharge saying there could be bloodshed if the government tried to review the Constitution. On The Buck Stops Here, we examine these statements to ask whether Constitution Day's entire purpose was defeated and what this ideological dissonance tells us about the state of India today.

PM Modi Needs Media Adviser, Needs to be More Vocal: Bhagwati to NDTV

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's admirer and supporter Professor Jagdish Bhagwati has some advice for him - be "more accessible", "more vocal" and "put right people in the right job". In an exclusive interview, the noted economist speaks on the government's management of the economy and how he thinks incrementalism is the only way in democracy for "rapid approach can backfire". He says Aamir Khan "should have been more careful" with his comments and should have known that in public life, one is likely to be misunderstood. Calling PM's delayed response on Dadri "lack of judgement on his part", Prof Bhagwati said PM Modi should have spoken sooner on the incident and personally met the victim's family.
