Pakistan’s nuclear programme is the surest route to escalating conventional war to the nuclear level, according to a report by an American think-tank. In its report ‘Asia in the Second Nuclear Age’, the Atlantic Council, however, said Pakistan does not appear to have operationalised its tactical nuclear-warfare plans yet. “The greatest threat in the region comes not from the development of large, sophisticated, and diversified nuclear arsenals, but from the continued stability of the institutions guarding them.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today paid homage to the victims of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks through his monthly radio programme ‘Mann ki baat’. The Prime Minister urged people to be more vigilant against the nefarious intentions of the terrorists who are bent on destroying the social fabric of the country. “Terrorism has threatened and challenged humanity across the globe. It is bent upon destroying the humanitarian forces. All humanitarian forces will have to keep fighting unitedly to defeat the menace of terrorism,” PM Modi said.

Time has come for consolidation of reforms, including GST, bankruptcy code and benami law, to ensure that the steps deliver the ‘desired fruits’, Niti Aayog Vice Chairman Rajiv Kumar has said. You know Modi government has done far too much in those 42 months, it has taken some very major steps. My view is that time has come for consolidation and making sure that these reform steps which have been taken yield the desired fruits, Kumar said, adding, “We should now focus on their successful completion except in social sector where some steps need to be taken on public health and education system fronts.”
