Arun Jaitley @arunjaitley on the escalating terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.
“In the State of J&K, who is threatening the human rights of the citizens? The entire Kashmiri Pandit community has been banished from the State. Initially spared but after the Chittissinghpura Massacre in the year 2000, most of the Sikh community has moved out,” Jaitley tweeted.
The BJP government has maintained that a tough stance or as former J-K CM Mehbooba Mufti said, a muscular approach, was necessary to fight terrorism.
The elite National Security Guards, popularly known as ‘Black Cats’, are likely to be deployed soon in counter-militancy operations in Jammu and Kashmir which was placed under governor’s rule on Wednesday, officials said.
Today, Congress leader Saifuddin Soz said that former Pakistani dictator Pervez Musharraf was right when he said Kashmiris prefer independence to joining Pakistan, reported ANI news agency.
“Musharraf said Kashmiris don’t want to merge with Pakistan, their first choice is independence. The statement was true then and remains true now also. I say the same, but I know that it is not possible,” said Soz to ANI.

Japanese automakers plan a record 2.95 trillion yen ($26.8 billion) in research and development spending for fiscal 2018 amid global competition and the encroachment of information technology companies onto their traditional turf.
The auto industry accounts for nearly a quarter of all R&D spending in Japan’s manufacturing sector
Much of this money will go into connected cars, automated driving, sharing and electrified vehicles — challenges so big that automakers are embracing cooperation to compete with bigger-spending companies like Google.
Car producing giants Toyota Motor, Nissan Motor, Honda Motor, Suzuki Motor and Mazda Motor are each putting forward their biggest R&D budgets ever. Mitsubishi Motors’ tally, its highest since a 2003 spin-off of truck and bus operations. Suzuki and Subaru have also joined the initiative. Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi launches $1 bln venture capital fund to invest in “new mobility”-technology
Subaru, will mark a roughly $1.3 billion increase on the year and a second straight annual rise.
Toyota has also set up with Mazda and Denso a separate business to develop core technologies for electric vehicles.Toyota works with Panasonic on batteries as well.
Toyota, which has earmarked $9.8 billion in R&D spending this fiscal year, is working with many partners. It announced in March the creation of a joint venture with group suppliers Denso and Aisin Seiki to focus on commercializing automated-driving software. The trio plans more than $2.7 billion in spending over the next few years.
Volkswagen’s figure reached 11.6 billion euros ($13.4 billion) in fiscal 2017.
Nissan has been developing a new electric model with a longer range by building on its experience with the mass-market Leaf. It is also collaborating with Japanese internet company DeNA on self-driving taxis. “Electrification and autonomous driving are highly compatible with each other,” Nissan President Hiroto Saikawa has said.
General Motors, which spent about $7.3 billion on R&D in fiscal 2017, revealed in late May that an autonomous driving unit would take $2.25 billion in investment from SoftBank Group’s Vision Fund.
This researcher view cause two private entities doing business deal is not a scam unless some irregularities are found and government agencies take up the case.Not our views i.e of Sagar Media Inc

Media for some time was reporting Rs.12,000 Cr NPA of Ruchi Soya registered in Mumbai but as per the latest reports – Adani Wilmar has 50% foreign equity was successful bidder.
But the Scam is that Lender Banks to Ruchi Soya shall get Rs.4,300 Cr and Adani Wilmar shall get credit of Rs.4,000 Cr – Net Gain to the Banks shall be only Rs.300 Cr when dues submitted to the Resolution Professionals were Rs.10,493 Cr but this doesn’t include Priority Unpaid Dues to Farmers and Suppliers.
Obviously actual dues to Banks at penal rates could be much more than 10,493 Cr. So Banks had Written Off or Foregone Rs.6,193 Cr and two private Banks shall Contribute Rs.4,000 Cr and much more future therefore is 100% Scam.
Banks had not removed Tumor in Ruchi Soya Cancer Merely taken out 4300 Units of Blood and injected 4000 Units of Blood. This takeover means Huge Excess Capacity & Low Capacity Utilization.
Ruch Soya mainly depended on Soybean Processing which was impacted by three factors – MSP was increased sharply in recent years, not even 1% of Soybean Cultivated area is irrigated and as per Agriculture Stats of India Index of Soybean Production base year 2007-08 = 100 was 156.6 in 2012-13 declined to 91.8% in 2015-16. In year 2012-13 it reported record PAT of Rs.236 Cr – less than 1% of Revenue which in three years turned in to Rs.879 Cr loss in 2015-16.
This year too Soybean Region of India West Madhya Pradesh has received (-) 15% of normal rainfall so far and last year was (-) 16% for entire season – All India Rainfall as on June21, 2018 is (-) 9%. Rajasthan & Saurashtra important Oilseeds area has not received pre monsoon rains. And monsoon is not progressing since June10.
Adani Group itself is highly indebted and in loss. Adani-Wilmar is already into Oil Business similarly IMPACTED by decline in Oilseed Production.
I don’t think Adani-Wilmar will ‘Repay Bank Loans of Rs.4,000 Cr’when it has surplus capacity in similar locations.
Banks should have taken over Ruchi Soya assets and Stripped it into 15 Regional Companies and should have sold them to Local companies who are more likely to Pay Best Price and promote local cultivation in Irrigated Farms.
Ramdev’s Patanjali bid was Far Superior to Adani-Wilmar – it is already has WIDER Exposure in Food Sector and Expanding Rapidly compared to Adani-Wilmar and is more competitive.

Noida’s Dipankar Kaushal shot the day’s best score of seven-under-63 to move up from tied 16th to second place at five-under-135.

Naresh –Since I reached out to ask this community to step up and support the groups working to protect and reunite families that have been separated at the border, you’ve raised more than $1 million dollars that will be split between the teams at the American Civil Liberties Union, the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project, the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project, Human Rights First, Kids in Need of Defense, La Union del Pueblo Entero, the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, United We Dream Action, We Belong Together, and the Women’s Refugee Commission.To each and every person who made a donation, no matter how big or small: Thank you.You may have heard about the White House’s just-announced executive order. It will mean more families and children are kept in detention centers and jails for longer — and it doesn’t offer a plan to reunite families already separated. This is not a solution.Right now, protests, marches, and other events are being organized across the country for Saturday, June 30th to demand our government stop treating these children and their parents like criminals — take a moment to find one near you, then say you’ll join millions of Americans in standing against this cruel practice.One mother unable to find their infant or one child being kept in a cage would be unacceptable. What’s happening right now is a crisis so overwhelming that it can be difficult to know how best to help, but your voice is needed now more than ever.Please sign up for a rally in your community — or to host an event of your own — and take a stand on behalf of immigrant families:Thank you,Hillary
