The Delhi High court, admitting a petition against the 'India Shining' campaign, has asked the Union government to file accounts and provide financial details of the advertisement campaign.
Quite disturbed to see a recent news report that the government has decided to grant citizenship to Pakistani Hindus who've been living in India for more than 5 years. The reason these people are in India is because they fear religious persecution in Pakistan. Fair enough. But that means they have sought asylum. Should these people be treated on par with existing citizens? Should these people have voting rights just because they have lived in India for 5 years? The government's policy on citizenship and the rights of one seem to be extremely muddled. Sonia Gandhi, who has been a citizen for nearly 15 years now should not seek the office of Prime Minister, because she is of Italian origin. But an asylum seeker from Pakistan can, in theory, become Prime Minister.
