Highlights of India Today Hindi 4th August 2021, issue: Cover Story: India’s Population Policy Hakikat Aur Bhram While reforms are much needed to control population growth, the big questions are: do coercive birth control measures work? Is the growing number of Muslims a threat to Hindus? Is India losing its demographic dividend? Here is a reality check Upfront: Punjab Khatarnak Daon Congress appointed cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu to the post of Punjab PCC (Pradesh Congress Committee) chief.
This marked a watershed in the protracted tussle for supremacy between Sidhu and Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, and is being read in some quarters as the beginning of the end of the Capt. Amarinder Singh era in Punjab. Some say the AICC’s decision to promote Sidhu despite the CM’s fierce protests will be like a dangerous game. Upfront: Rajasthan Andruni Asantosh Rajasthan BJP facing fresh tussles within fractions. This time Vasundhra Raje loyalist MLA Rohitash Sharma expelled.
By doing this BJP central leadership sends the message that anyone who does not follow the party line will pay a heavy price. Upfront: Karnataka Pari Samapti Ki Oor? Karnataka, Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa (BSY), 78, may be on his way out. The mounting criticism of his style of functioning, his advancing age, allegations of son B.Y. Vijayendra’s high-handedness in government have all contributed to his imminent downfall. However, the party’s resolve to fight the next assembly poll (due in 2023) under a more youthful leadership has also played its part in BSY’s fate.
