Amid China tension, India & Japan talk business as Delhi seeks investments

Union minister Piyush Goyal spoke at the Invest India Exclusive Investment Forum - Japan Edition on Thursday, seeking to boost trade ties between Delhi and Tokyo. He said that together, the two nations can overcome any adversity and be successful in geopolitical, strategic, trade and business, and people-to-people ventures. Japan is one of India's most-trusted and important trade partners, he added, stating that the former is the fourth-largest contributor to FDI in the latter. The latest trade push came amid persisting tension between Delhi and Beijing. As China remains aggressive along the Line of Actual Control, the Indian government is pursuing its 'atmanirbhar' or self-reliance goal. Multiple decisions taken recently by the Narendra Modi administration have been seen to be targeted at China. These include the banning of applications like TikTok, and tightening foreign direct investment and government contract bidding rules. Watch the full video for more.

"Would like clear cut decision soon," says Shashi Tharoor on Congress leadership

Congress Leader Shashi Tharoor on the end of Sonia Gandhi's tenure as party interim president said that we should be clear about our leadership going forward. Shashi Tharoor said, "We should be clear about our leadership going forward. I welcomed Sonia Ji's appointment as interim president last year. But I do believe it is unfair to her to expect her to carry this burden indefinitely." He further said, "If Rahul Gandhi says no I don't want to come back, then the question that many of the party members are asking - "How long can we carry on like this?"- that is the question. We would ideally like a clear cut decision as soon as possible."
