‘DMK & Congress meetings are like corruption hackathons’: PM Modi

Training his guns against the DMK-Congress combine, Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleged their meetings are like "corruption hackathons" where their leaders sit and 'brainstorm' on how to loot. Hitting out at the opposition, he said while its style of politics was "misgovernance with corruption" that of NDA was "governance with compassion." "Both methods are very different. For the opposition what matters is personal gains. They want to capture power to fill their pockets," he alleged. The only politics people will accept is politics of development and good governance and they want a government where fruits of progress reach the public, he said. "They want the anti-development forces (to be kept) at a distance," he said. Taking a swipe at the DMK-Congress combine in Tamil Nadu, Modi said their "meetings are like corruption hackathons" where "their leaders sit and brainstorm on how to loot."

While Congress leader Meem Afzal said that it is difficult that Nirav Modi will come back to India till PM Modi's government is in power. He said that government should be prepared as Nirav Modi has multiple options to opt and one of which is appealing in the High Court. "Appealing in High Court means that it can take up to 3 years also." A United Kingdom court on February 25 ordered the extradition of fugitive economic offender Nirav Modi to India to face trial in money laundering case.

Top medical journal calls for three urgent steps against COVID-19

In an analysis, the Lancet COVID-19 Commission has called for three urgent actions in the COVID-19 response. "First, all regions with high rates of new COVID-19 cases, including the USA and the European Union (EU), should intensify measures to minimise community transmission and deploy COVID-19 vaccines rapidly," read the Lancet medical journal in its latest publication. Second, governments should urgently and fully fund WHO and the Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator, including COVAX. Third, the G20 countries should empower the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and multilateral development banks to increase the scale of financing and debt relief. Success on all three priorities--containment of transmission, rapid vaccination, and emergency finance--will require improved global cooperation, it said. New lineages are increasing transmission of infection and raising risks in regions that have been less affected by COVID-19, including in sub-Saharan Africa. Additionally, acquired immunity from earlier COVID-19 infections might be less protective against reinfection with some of the new SARS-CoV-2 variants. Mutant lineages might also reduce the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines and require adapted vaccines or boosters."* The medical journal also pointed out that at least half of the world's population lacks access to essential health services.
