    COMMENT: Mohammed Apabhai of Citi told CNBC-TV18 that India will get FII inflow after election verdit.

    Outperformance of India among emerging markets is quite significant, he said. “I think lot of money forced into India even though is economy is not very strong.”

    COMMENT: As the counting of votes for Lok Sabha elections is taking place, the market would want confirmation of exit polls, Arvind Sanger of Geosphere Capital Management told CNBC-TV18.

    On May 19, exit polls predicted the NDA may get around 250-300 seats in general elections, which means the ruling party may retain their power for another five-year term.

    “BJP majority would be very positive for the market sentiment. Less than 250 seats for BJP might lead to a correction whereas more than 300 seats for BJP would result in a rally,” Sanger said.

  • May 23, 10:26 AM (IST)

    COMMENT: “I think this certainly should put the risk out of the way for India. We could see some more FII inflow,” Mark Matthews of Bank Julius Baer & Co told CNBC-TV18.

    Most people were confident of BJP coming in power, he said.

    Overall global investors are cautious on equities due to US-China trade war tensions. If dollar consolidates here, then will be very positive for emerging markets, he said.

    He feels PSU banks are good place to bet as NPA looks coming down. “Government will try to help economy, which is good for banks,” he said.

    Lok Sabha election results 2019: Early trends spell bad news for Congress

    Early trends from the 2019 Lok Sabha election results on May 23 painted a grim picture for the Indian National Congress. Congress was leading in about 58 Lok Sabha constituencies out of the 490-odd seats from where the leads were coming in.

    Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) was leading in over 310 constituencies, far above the ‘magic number’ 272. BJP itself was leading in over 272 seats.

    As of 9.35 am, Congress President Rahul Gandhi was trailing from his home turf Amethi in Uttar Pradesh. However, he was leading from his second seat — Wayanad, Kerala. United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Sonia Gandhi was leading from Rae Bareli by a small margin.

    Congress leader Shashi Tharoor was earlier reported to be trailing, while the BJP candidate Kummanam Rajasekharan was reported to be leading from Thiruvanathapuram. Tharoor, however, caught up and is now leading from the constituency.

He said after the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) counting is over, the voter-verifiable paper audit trail (VVPATs) will be counted as per the Supreme Court guidelines. Speaking about the Assembly constituencies of Delhi, Singh said, “From every Assembly constituency, five (VVPATs) will be randomly selected and they will be counted. There is a special VVPAT booth in every counting hall. It will take place in five rounds.”

Delhi has 70 assembly constituencies and in all 350 VVPATs will be counted.

“Every assembly segment had 200 polling stations and five polling stations will be selected randomly. This will delay the formal results. But trends will be out early. Formal declaration of results will be delayed by five to six hours,” Singh told PTI.

He also briefed Delhi Chief Secretary Vijay Dev about the expected delay in results, officials said.

Delhi Police commissioner Amulya Patnaik was present during the briefing and he apprised them about the security arrangements that will be made in accordance with the Election Commission guidelines. Delhi has seven parliamentary constituencies and there is one counting centre in each of them. The counting centres will have one counting hall for each of the 10 assembly segments, officials said.

In each counting hall, a maximum of 14 tables can be put and machines that would come in the first round, their results will be compiled and uploaded on the ‘Suvidha’ app of the Election Commission. The counting will commence at 8 am with postal ballots. Officials will have to ensure that the postal ballot counting is over with at least two rounds of EVM counting yet to be done.

After the EVM counting is over, the VVPAT counting will commence.

The Supreme Court has made it clear that random matching of VVPAT slips with EVMs will take place in five polling booths per assembly segment. Accordingly, the exercise will be held in 20,600 of the 10.35 lakh polling stations across the country.

Nearly 39.6 lakh EVMs and 17.4 lakh voter-verifiable paper trail machines (VVPAT) are being used in these polling stations. These include reserves.

rime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh during the release of Bharatiya Janata (BJP) party’s manifesto for Lok Sabha elections 2019, in New Delhi, Monday, April 08, 2019.

The ruling party promised pension for small and medium farmers and shopkeepers, days after the Congress vowed to bring about several welfare measures, including a grant of Rs 72,000 to the poorest 20% households in the country, if voted to power.

Members of the BJP’s parliamentary board, its apex body, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and its chief Amit Shah were present at the launch of the manifesto in New Delhi.

Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley had on Sunday unveiled campaign themes and other materials of the party’s election campaign. The party has chosen the slogan “Phir ek baar Modi sarkar” as its election tagline and its campaign will revolve around the Narendra Modi-led government’s achievements in the past five years.

And the Congress, on its part, has adopted the official campaign tagline of “Ab Hoga NYAY”, centred around its minimum income guarantee scheme and party president Rahul Gandhi.

The BJP crowdsourced its manifesto and held events across the country to get inputs from different sets of voters like farmers, youths, women, businessmen and others.

                           

Union home minister Rajnath Singh-led manifesto committee of the BJP had decided to form 15 sub-panels to reach out to the different group of voters in January this year.

The 20-member Manifesto Committee includes Union ministers Arun Jaitley, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Nirmala Sitharaman, Thaawarchand Gehlot, Piyush Goyal, and Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi. It also has former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Bihar’s deputy chief minister Sushil Modi, his Uttar Pradesh counterpart, Keshav Prasad Maurya, among its members.

Polling will be held in seven phases across the country from April 11 to May 19. The results will be declared on May 23.

IAF Balakot Strike: Various options were considered, say top sources, adding that the “element of surprise” was supreme

How India Planned 'Operation Balakot', Monitored Real-Time By PM Modi

IAF Balakot Strike: The strike by IAF’s Mirage 2000 fighter jets was directed at the Jaish-e-Mohammed

HIGHLIGHTS

  1. The strike took one-and-a-half minutes
  2. The fighter jets returned after a 19-minute operation
  3. Sources say fighters and other aircraft took off from several air bases

As Indian Air Force fighter jets crossed the Line of Control for the first time since 1971 and struck a terror camp of the Jaish-e-Mohammed around 3:30 am on Tuesday, National Security Adviser Ajit Doval tracked the operation real-time and even kept Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the loop, say top sources.

The strike in Pakistan’s Balakot, around 80 km from Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir, was directed at the Jaish-e-Mohammed; the Pakistan-based terror outfit had owned responsibility for the February 14 suicide attack in which 40 CRPF soldiers were killed in Kashmir’s Pulwama.

A day after the Pulwama terror attack, PM Modi chaired a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security, in which it was decided that India needs to send a strong message, say sources.

“PM spoke a dozen times on Pulwama in the meeting and the need for a strong reply. There was a need to send a message to the terrorists too,” said sources.

Various options were considered, say top sources, adding that the “element of surprise” was supreme. The work was “done through several verticals and actionable intelligence was gathered”.

Sources said the government considered the prevailing mood in the country, with people paying moving tributes to the CRPF soldiers who died in the Pulwama terror attack and demanding strong action.

12 Mirage 2000 fighter jets crossed the Line of Control and dropped 1,000 kg bombs on the vast terror training facility at Balakot

Based on intelligence inputs over the last few days, Indian Air Force Mirage 2000 fighter jets dropped six bombs at the biggest camp of the Jaish-e-Mohammed in Balakot, killing over 300 terrorists including Jaish chief Masood Azhar’s brother-in-law Yousuf Azhar, sources said. The camp was a training facility for suicide bombers.

The strike took one-and-a-half minutes and the fighter jets returned after a 19-minute operation, without a scratch or any casualty.

According to officials, everyone at the camp was “sleeping” and Pakistani defence establishment “had no clue” that the attack was coming so deep into their country because they had expected a surgical strike on camps in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir near the Line of Control.

But India had received information that Jaish had shifted many terrorists and hardcore operatives, along with their trainers, to the Balakot camp, which has facilities for 500 to 700 people, and even has a swimming pool along with cooks and cleaners.

Sources say fighters and other aircraft took off from several air bases at about the same time, leaving Pakistani defence officials confused about where they were heading.

A small group of aircraft broke away from the swarm and headed to Balakot where “the sleeping terrorists were sitting ducks for the Indian bombing,” the Press Trust of India quoted a source as saying.

In a surprising statement contrary to his son Akhilesh Yadav’s stance, Samajwadi Party (SP) patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi in parliament today, which left the opposition squirming but were greeted by cheers from the treasury benches with the PM acknowledging Yadav’s “blessings” with folded hands.

He also said that he hopes that BJP wins the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and the Prime Minister Narendra Modi returns to power again.

“I hope we see the same set of MPs in the next Lok Sabha,” Singh said in Lok Sabha in his valedictory speech in Lok Sabha, drawing applause from the BJP members who are in a majority in the House.. Today is the last day of the 16th Lok Sabha.

Pointing towards Modi, Mulayam said: “I hope that Modi becomes Prime Minister again. He must get another term.”

Ruling alliance members heartily cheered Yadav with chants of “Jai Shri Ram” as he praised Modi for “making efforts to take everyone along”.

Interestingly Mulayam was seen making this statement standing next to Congress leader Sonia Gandhi.
The statement has come when Akhilesh Yadav has formed an alliance with once-rival BSP in Uttar Pradesh against BJP for the Lok Sabha elections.

Mulayam Singh, the founder of Samajwadi Party and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, had indulged into an open spat with his son Akhilesh Yadav just before the Uttar Pradesh state elections.

Ruling Samajwadi Party led by Akhilesh Yadav lost the state elections in 2017 pretty badly against BJP. The saffron party had bagged 312 out of 403 seats in the state elections.

The Union Cabinet has approved 10 per cent reservation in jobs and educational institutions for the economically backward section in the general category, sources said Monday.

The Union Cabinet has approved 10 per cent reservation in jobs and educational institutions for the economically backward section in the general category, sources said Monday.
The government is likely to bring a constitutional amendment bill in Parliament on Tuesday, they said, adding that the quota will be over and above the existing 50 per cent reservation.

The section doesn’t get reservation as of now, the sources said.

“The reservation will be given to those economically backward poor people who are not availing the benefit of reservation as of now,” a source explained.

The reservation benefit is likely to be availed by those whose annual income is below Rs 8 lakh and have up to five acres of land, he said.

In a major move ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, the Union Cabinet Monday cleared a 10 per cent job and education quota for “economically weaker” sections, meeting a key demand of upper castes, a staunch BJP support base which has shown signs of a drift from the party.

A top government functionary said a constitutional amendment bill will be tabled in Parliament Tuesday, the last day of the Winter Session.

The proposed reservation will be over and above the existing 50 per cent reservation enjoyed by the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and the Other Backward Classes, taking the total reservation to 60 per cent.

The constitutional amendment bill would be required as the constitution does not provide for reservation on the ground of economic conditions. It envisages amendment to the Articles 5 and 6.

Will give reservation to the poor

A Union minister said the bill once passed will amend the Constitution accordingly to give reservation to the poor among the general castes and classes.

“The bill will provide a shelter for upper castes under the rubric of fundamental rights. The court’s rule of the maximum 50 per cent quota cannot fetter Parliament’s right to amend the Constitution,” he said.

In its famous Indra Sawhney judgement, the Supreme Court had set a cap of 50 per cent cap on quotas. Government sources said the proposed constitutional amendment will pave the way for the additional quota.

Among the major castes to benefit from the proposed law are Brahmins, Rajputs (Thakurs), Jats, Marathas, Bhumihars, several trading castes, Kapus and Kammas among other Upper Castes.

The poor among the other religions will also benefit from it, sources added. The Congress described the government’s decision as an “election gimmick” to fool the people and a proof of BJP’s “fear” of losing Lok Sabha polls.

The BJP hailed the move with several leaders describing it as historic and exercise in sync with government’s motto of “Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas” (with all, development for all).

BJP ally and Dalit leader Ram Vilas Paswan also termed the decision by the government as “historic”.

Opp parties must support

The BJP believes that if opposition parties, whose support is a must for its passage in the Rajya Sabha where the government lacks numbers, vote against it, then they will risk losing support of an influential section of society.

Influential castes like Marathas, Kapus and Jats have hit the streets in the last few years, seeking reservation benefits. Their protests at times have turned violent.

9. What about states?What about states?

Though governments in states like Haryana, Rajasthan and Maharashtra have made laws, they are often struck down by the court on the ground of a Supreme Court judgement in the Indra Sawhney case had fixed a ceiling of 50 per cent on reservation.

The apex court has also asserted that the Constitution makes no case for quota on economic ground and only talks of educational and social backwardness besides those for the SCs and STs.

He added that the demand for providing quota to the poor from the general castes was made in the constituent assembly too.

“For the first time, we (govt) are now going to give constitutional recognition to the poor from the upper castes,” he said.

10. Criteria

Criteria

The bill is likely to introduces criteria like an annual income below Rs 8 lakh and not owning more than five acres of agricultural land for those seeking quota benefits.

They should also not own a flat of 1000 sq ft or more, land of 100 yards in notified municipality area and 200 yards in non-notified area, sources said.

The ruling BJP hopes that the bill will help consolidate the general castes in its support as it begins campaign for the Lok Sabha elections scheduled in April-May.

11. Wooing UC?

Wooing UC?

Political watchers believe that sections of upper castes had drifted from the party of late following its aggressive push to win over backward classes and Dalits.

The Modi government’s decision to bring a law to nullify a Supreme Court order, which critics said had diluted provisions in a law on atrocities against Dalits and tribes, was also used by some upper castes groups to campaign against the BJP in recent state polls.

The BJP had lost to the Congress in three states, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, where it was in power.

#Hiring : More than 50% of companies look to step up hiring in 2019 : Mercer

More than 50 per cent of companies intend to increase hiring next year while only 3 per cent firms may reduce the headcount, a senior official of global consulting HR firm Mercer said.

“The hiring outlook seems to be positive (in 2019). More than 50 per cent of companies expect to increase the headcount whereas only 3 per cent are likely to reduce the headcount, as per our employers’ survey,” said Shanthi Naresh, India business leader, Mercer, when asked about the hiring trend for the coming year.

Mercer (India) CEO Anish Sarkar also noted that the trend for the last couple of years has been good in terms of hiring and next year the outlook seems positive.

“Besides the demand for key skills like sales, research and development become predominant,” he said.

Speaking about the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on job losses, Mustafa Faizani, Mercer Zone leader for India, Middle East and Africa said, AI will lead to displacement of jobs but will have addition as well.

So, on a net basis it will add jobs in different sectors but it will be a challenge on how to reskill displaced persons and make them employable for the new economy.

About the use of AI, he mentioned that AI is being deployed for credit approvals and predicting the default rate of an applicant instead of individuals taking a call. Approvals are happening fast on AI rather than relying on an individual’s judgement, he added.

AI is also useful in preventing money laundering by detecting transactions and movement of money across global financial sectors.

PM Modi will address a rally in Bastar district’s headquarters Jagdalpur, while Rahul Gandhi will address five rallies in two days.

 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress president Rahul Gandhi will be in Chhattisgarh on Friday to campaign for the first phase of the Assembly elections in the state, a day after five people died in a bomb detonated by Naxals in Dantewada district.

Modi will address a rally in Bastar district’s headquarters, Jagdalpur, while Gandhi will tour the state for two days during which he will address five rallies and hold a road show in Chief Minister Raman Singh’s constituency, Rajnandgaon.
