2.3 % Grew in China’s Economy

  China’s economy recovered to pre-pandemic growth rates in the fourth quarter, propelling it to a stronger than expected full-year expansion of 2.3% and making it the only major one to avoid contraction.  Gross domestic product climbed 6.5% in the final quarter from a year earlier, fueled by stronger-than-expected industrial output, the statistics bureau said Monday.   Covid-19, which has ravaged the world economy, first emerged in central China in late 2019. But the world's second-largest economy also became the first to bounce back after imposing strict lockdowns and virus control measures. It is expected to be the only major world economy clocking positive 2020 growth. In the last three months of 2020, China's economic rebound continued with a better-than-expected 6.5 percent growth on-year, a sustained improvement since the second quarter. This brings it back to a pre-pandemic trajectory, although full-year 2020 growth is still its worst performance since 1976, when the ec

Nation knowns - The leaked Story

In an explosive exposé it has been disclosed that Republic TV's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami purportedly knew about India's plan to attack Pakistan to take the revenge of the Pulwama terror attack in advance. Additionally, he even seemed to have shared this sensitive information with former BARC chief Partho Dasgupta. From the leaked WhatsApp conversation between Arnab Goswami and Partho Dasgupta, the journalist-cum-proprietor claims to hint that "something major will be done" which will be "bigger than a normal strike". Strangely , the discussion is dated February 23, 2019, which was approximately  three days before the IAF-led airstrikes in Balakot, Pakistan. Given the nature of sensitive information discussed in the leaked WhatsApp chats, the Opposition has trained guns at the Republic TV's Editor-in-Chief and questioned his intentions. The Opposition parties are now demanding an internal inquiry into the alleged leak while military experts acr

Supreme Court Suspends Farm bills

  The Supreme Court Tuesday suspended the implementation of the three farm laws until further notice,  and set up a committee comprising experts to hear the parties and understand the ground situation. When told the farmer unions were not willing to appear before the committee, the bench said those “genuinely” interested in finding a solution would do so. The farmer unions reiterated that they will not participate in any court-ordered committee process and they would not call off their protest until the newly enacted legislations are repealed. “It is clear that the court is being misguided by various forces even in its constitution of a committee. These are people who are known for their support to the 3 Acts and have actively advocated for the same,” a statement issued by All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC) said. The ruling came on a batch of petitions challenging the validity of the three farm laws that were enacted last September. A detailed order is expected l
