Blame-aportioning was not intended purpose. I have pointed out the missing link in the chain that #Congress#BJP and #MSM seem strangely unaware of or are wilfully suppressing. It is for #CBI and Govt to explain why 'Look-Out Notice' was downgraded. Not my job. #MallyaLies 1/n
As far as I am concerned available evidence shows Vijay Mallya planned his exit meticulously. He travelled abroad in October and returned in November 2015. He travelled abroad twice in December 2015. He travelled abroad in January 2016. And then fled in March. #MallyaLies 2/n

#FuelPriceHike A chart that explains how petrol and diesel cost is calculated. 1. Central Excise is constant. Money Centre gets does not increase or decrease with cost of fuel. 2. State VAT & surcharge is % of cost. Higher the cost, higher the earnings of States.
State VAT & surcharges per litre of petrol and diesel is in % and varies from State to State. Congress-JDS raised it to 32% after forming Govt in Karnataka. Maharashtra has highest VAT on petrol. AP on diesel. Bulk of WB revenue comes from VAT on fuel.

Vedanta Ltd’s Sterlite copper plant at Tuticorin has been shut after Church-led protests. It produced 40% of India’s annual copper output of 10 lakh tonnes; 1.6 lakh tonne was exported. Closure will impact 800 small & medium units. Thousands of jobs gone. indianexpress.com/article/india/…
The same people who forced Sterlite closure, the same Church, the same #jholawallas, the same #MombattiBrigade, the same bleeding heart #LeftLib dissenters, the same bile-spewing #Commentariat, and their patron saint, the same @RahulGandhi will now taunt Modi: Where are the jobs?
