Modi govt disbands SC appointed expert committee on air pollution, cuts enviro ministry out of the scene and sets up a new commission with massive bureacratic bulge, to solve Delhi NCR's air pollution problems.

How the Modi govt prevented investigation into graft accusations against its top anti-corruption official. Using bureaucratic technicalities. Lesson: how irony and corruption remain embedded in Indian governance. newindianexpress.com/nation/20

Excellent move by Gujarat high court

Great that Guj HC has begun live streaming of proceedings on YouTube. Should be done by all courts including SC. Courts are meant to be public places for all to see. Why shouldn't court proceedings be transparent& for all to see. Will discourage misconduct

Tamil Nadu's shame: 8 deaths due to manual scavenging in lockdown. For years, the state has been topping the list. When will this stop? When will the govt truly and effectively step in? This is state and societal brutality. @aadhirabharathi@twitter.com writes

Reportage is the substratum of good journalism. Indian media is replacing it with opinion writing and we are all worse off for it. @ashubh@twitter.com writes succinctly.

Reading into this argument: India is we a large-sized lower-middle income country with a deep distribution skew.
But, faced with an economic crisis, Modi decided India would pretend to be an advanced economy. Do little to help citizens. Now we are in a deeper mess than others

My new column on how the Indian fiscal response resembles that of advanced economies rather than emerging market peers:
1. Greater reliance on automatic stabilisers rather than discretionary impulses
2. More indirect support rather than direct spending

Not at all prescient:
AS had a romantic view of the GST. Lovelorn, he underestimated the revenue neutral rate. The finance ministry, in its hubris, made a mess of the rollout and implementation As a collective result, the tax gdp ratio collapsed and the centre is now in default twitter.com/milanv/status/1318
