PM Narendra Modi has said that political parties should keep out of the affairs of the judiciary. In an interview to Times Now, he was asked about the ongoing crisis in the Supreme Court. He said he had faith in the judicial system and was confident it would figure out a solution to its problems. In significant comments ahead of the budget, he strongly rejected the suggestion that elections, including the Lok Sabha polls due in 2019, were a reason for the government to turn to populism.
A survey found that India’s richest 1% corner 73% of the wealth in the country. As many as 67 crore Indians comprising the population’s poorest half saw their wealth rise by a mere 1%, said the survey released by the international rights group Oxfam. The situation appears even more grim globally, where 82% of the wealth generated last year worldwide went to the 1%, while 3.7 billion people that account for the poorest half of the population saw no increase in their wealth.

Top government sources have claimed that India will be open-defecation free before Lok Sabha polls. While urban affairs minister Hardeep Singh Puri said his ministry will hit the target a year before the October 2019 deadline, the sanitation ministry is confident of meeting the target by December 2018. The target of building toilets in rural areas is 11 times more than what is required in cities and towns.
The CPM does not favour an alliance with the Congress party for the 2019 general elections. The party rejected a draft political resolution by its senior leader Sitaram Yechury favouring such an alliance. The vote also served as a setback to the formation of a comprehensive anti-BJP front on the national level, of which Yechury was seen to be a key partner. Meanwhile, the Congress said the push within the CPM against any electoral understanding with it has been known for months.
