Is the market run-up due to 'stable' UPA?
Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram today rejected media analysis that the "hope" of a stable Government after elections is attracting investments and boosting capital market and the value of rupee.
According to Chidambaram, it is not "hope" but the "fact" of a stable Government provided by UPA and the numerous measures taken in the last 18 months that have provided stability and strength to the Indian economy.
Chidambaram will not contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The Sivaganga seat in Tamil Nadu that Chidambaram won by a narrow margin in 2009 has been given to his son Karti Chidambaram.

The Congress Vice President Shri Rahul Gandhi participated in several of these interactions including those with representatives from Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Other Backward Classes, minorities, women organisations, youth, labour, industry, Panchayat representatives, ex-servicemen, railway porters, rickshaw pullers, salt-pan workers and farmers.

We received tens of thousands of suggestions through these consultations, on the websites and social media platforms, phones, emails, etc. These suggestions were carefully considered and have been included, wherever feasible...Read More

The RBI's concern and involvement in the sphere of rural credit stemmed from its very statute of incorporation.

RBI laid emphasis on strengthening and ensuring viable provincial cooperative bank, central cooperative banks, marketing societies and primary agricultural credit societies in each province for seasonal agricultural operations...Read More
