CENTRE FOR POLICY ANALYSIS
It is with shock and grief that we learnt about the passing of Mr. KamalMorarka last evening.

Mr Morarka was a friend and founder trustee of the Centre for Policy Analysis (CPA). His vision of a socialist, secular, democratic India has been the very reason for CPA that he held together with his friends. Industrialist from birth, his generosity and capacity for envisioning a more equal India, steeped in a continuity and diversity of Indian tradition along with modernity marked Kamalji.

I came to Know Kamalji personally in 1990-91 when I was Finance Secretary to Government of India and Kamalji was the key Minister of State in charge of PMO in the late Shri Chandrashekhar's government whose tenure was short but had to face extraordinary situations, both internally as well as externally.

THE CITIZEN EDITORIAL
The American media, and powerful sections of it, are holding the Republicans and other captive channels accountable for the attack by lumpens on Capitol Hill. Truth is being brought to power as even those Republicans who have hastened to move away from the Trump incited attack on Washington’s citadel of power, have been brought under media scrutiny for not stopping the US President earlier.

The assault on American democracy while being condemned, is also being supported from within. Pol

JUDICIAL APPOINTMENTS: RETROSPECT AND PROSPECT

Our Constitution has taken up the charge of transforming a hierarchical society into a modern equalitarian democracy. In a Parliamentary democracy based on a written Constitution, it is the role of the Judiciary (predominantly the Supreme Court) to interpret it. The court itself has supposed the role of the guardian and interpreter of the Constitution of India.

Parthu Venkatesh P

Since 1951, Pakistan is the only country in South Asia after India to have diplomatic relations with People's Republic of China (PRC).

Are America's International Commitments trustworthy?

Nayan Anand

Since the inception of his term as the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald Trump has been a favourite of the media. Be his kooky Tweets that take the internet by storm or his determined approach towards putting America first, Trump sure knows how to catch the eyeballs of both world leaders and the public alike. In the past few months, Trump went a step ahead to shake the world by his strong messages of 'America First' policy. In the same regard, the global power landscape saw ...

The recent time can be attributed to both progress and protests alike.
