Addressing the customary Vijaydashami gathering at the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) headquarters in Nagpur, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat spoke on various issues pertaining to national interest. On the organisations 92nd Foundation Day, Nation Next listed some of the important takeaways from the chiefs speech. Here’s the first person account of the same. Excerpts:

  1. “Pakistan and China: In response to the activities of Pakistan on the western front and that of China on the northern front, India’s strong and determined stand has been visible in the incidents like Doklam on the borders as well as in the international diplomacy.
  2. Terrorist infiltration and cross border firing: The determination, with which terrorist infiltration and cross border firing is being dealt with is appreciated. The provocative actions and propaganda of the separatists is being effectively controlled by curbing their illegal financial sources and exposing their linkages with anti-national terrorist forces.
  3. Jammu Kashmir: Necessary constitutional amendments will have to be made and old provisions will have to be changed. Only then, the residents of Jammu Kashmir can be completely assimilated with the rest of India and their equal cooperation and share will be possible in the national progress.
  4. Cow smuggling: Cross-border smuggling of cow continues to be a matter of concern. Nation already has been facing the problem of illegal Bangladeshi migrants and now Rohingyas who are chased away from Myanmar have infiltrated and many more are ready to migrate illegally.
  5. Cow protection and promotion: Cow smuggling has emerged as a serious issue in all states, especially on Bangladesh border. Activities like cow protection and cow promotion become more valuable. The government should ensure that such criminals should be penalised.
  6. Industrial growth: Integrated and holistic policy will address the needs of industry, trade, agriculture and environment together, will safeguard the interest of all from big, medium and small industries to small retailers, farmers and landless labours is very much felt.
  7. Sustainable livelihood: Despite being faulty, the parameter of Gross Domestic Product is still used to measure the health and progress of economy. Enough remuneration for sustainable livelihood is a major consideration for us.
  8. Loan waiver: Measures like loan waivers are also signs of sensitivity and goodwill of the governments but these temporary measures aren’t the solution to the problem. New technology and traditional non-polluting methods should be amalgamated.
  9. Water management: In the areas of poison free farming and water management, government has already taken the initiatives regarding water conservation, water protection, river cleaning, ensuring continuous flow of river water, rejuvenation projects, tree plantation, etc.
  10. New education policy: New education policy should be carved out in such a manner that education should become affordable and accessible even to children and youth living in jungles and villages. The curriculum should remain free of all ?isms and should be knowledge based.”

Radhika Dhawad | Nagpur

Former Indian skipper Virat Kohli took to twitter to inform netizens that he had lost his brand new unboxed phone in Nagpur on Tuesday.

Kohli, who is in the city for first test match against Australia on Thursday,  said, “Nothing beats the sad feeling of losing your new phone without even unboxing it  Has anyone seen it?”

Food delivery app Zomato was quick to respond by asking the ace cricketer to ‘feel free to order an ice cream from his wife and actor Anushka Sharma’s phone.’ 

The tweet read, “feel free to order ice cream from bhabhi’s phone if that will help.” However, many users anticipated Kohli’s tweet to be an advertisement for a brand.

Bombay High Court rejected stay plea filed by CBI paving way for the release of ex-Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.

Ex-Home Ministe Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday.

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday. Deshmukh had sought permission to visit his constituency, which is also his hometown, Nagpur. 

The application was filed by Deshmukh through his lawyer, Inderpal Singh, stating that he is a native of Nagpur with deep family roots in the city apart from being an elected representative of his constituency. 

“The applicant craves a benevolent indulgence of this court to permit him to travel outside Greater Mumbai, including District Nagpur, for a limited duration of about four weeks so as to maintain continuity in his social and family ties and also visit his original and permanent home/constituency,” the plea stated.

The plea further added that “the applicant needs to have due legal consultation with his lawyers in New Delhi for further course of strategy in the present and connected cases.”

Interesting facts you didn’t know about Union Budget | Must Read




Radhika Dhawad | Bombuflat


Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented Union Budget when she presented financial statements and tax proposals for fiscal year 2023-24.

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented her fifth straight Union Budget when she presented financial statements and tax proposals for fiscal year 2023-24.

Here are some lesser known facts about Union Budget…

The British government presented India’s first ever Union Budget on April 7, 1860.

The first budget of independent India was presented by country’s first Finance Minister RK Shanmukham Chetty on November 26, 1947.

Even though traditionally, the finance ministers present the budget, Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi are the only Prime Ministers to have presented the Union Budget instead of Finance Ministers.

Until 1955, the Union Budget was presented in English. However, the Congress government then decided to print the Budget papers in both Hindi and English.

In 2019, Sitharaman became the second woman to table the budget after Indira Gandhi who presented the budget for the year 1970-71.

Earlier, the government tabled the rail budget separately for 92 years but since 2017, the rail budget was merged with the Union Budget.

Until 1999, the government tabled the Union Budget at 5 pm on the last working day of February as per British era practice but 

former Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha changed the timing to 11 am. Years after, late Finance Minister Arun Jaitely changed the budget presentation to February 1. 

There’s a customary event called the ‘halwa ceremony’ that is held every year ahead of the Union Budget. It is considered as a gesture of appreciation for all people who have worked on the Union Budget. 

To ensure the secrecy of the budget document, a lock-in process is followed – in which all the officials involved 

in preparing the Budget come out of Parliament’s North Block only after the Finance Minister has presented the budget.

In 2021, Sitharaman became the first to table paperless Union Budget.

Former Prime Minister Moraraji Desai holds the record of presenting 10 budgets as finance minister, which is the maximum so far.
