Better for India to Try Hardcore Diplomacy In Re: Kulbhushan Jadhav

Kulbhushan Jadhav's Death

These disputes would relate, if not entirely, substantially to the interpretation of the Vienna Convention and its application to the facts of the case. The fate of #KulbhushanJadhav hangs on this statement of Harish Salve. Will it succeed? Now let me explain the significance of the statement.

Thousands Of Trees Could Be Axed For Road To Gangotri – NDTV

http://www.ndtv.com/india-news/thousands-of-trees-could-be-axed-for-road-to-gangotri-1675938 My Comment: This religious tourism in Uttarkhand will destroy the nature, especially under this new BJP government.
