New textile policy unveiled by Gujarat Government

On Wednesday, Gujarat Government announced new textile policy for next five years in order to attract cotton textile entrepreneurs to set up shops in Gujarat.
It expects an investment of Rs 20,000 crore over five years, 25 lakh new jobs, of which 50% will be for rural women. It focuses on 4Fs (farm, fibre, fabric, foreign). It focuses on value addition of cotton within the state. At present 90% of state’s cotton is sold in other states.
“Gujarat is the state where 35% of the country’s cotton is grown. However, out of the cotton grown (1.23 lakh bales last year) in the state, 90% is either exported or goes to other states as raw material,” Gujarat’s industries minister Saurabh Patel said. “The new policy’s objective is better price realisation for raw cotton produce at the national and international levels by the way of value addition across the entire chain,” he said.
The state government has announced a 5% interest subsidy on bank loans for five years for those who establish new plants for ginning, processing, weaving and knitting.


US daily, Washington Post calls PM as a ‘tragic figure’

US daily, Washington Post described Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh as “a dithering, ineffectual bureaucrat presiding over a deeply corrupt government”.

In its article entitled as “India’s ‘silent’ prime minister becomes a tragic figure”, the Washington Post said Manmohan Singh helped set India on the path to modernity, prosperity and power, but critics say the shy, soft-spoken 79-year-old is in “danger of going down in history as a failure”.

The daily also said, “As India’s economy has slowed and as its reputation for rampant corruption has reasserted itself, the idea that the country was on an inexorable road to becoming a global power has increasingly come into question.”

This came soon after the TIME Magazine termed him as an “Underachiever”.
