Low Priority News Items of the Day:

‘Growth may rebound to 7.2% in FY19’

India is set to see growth accelerating to 7.2% in 2018-19 and 7.4% in 2019-20, up from the 6.7% in 2017-18, according to the United Nations’ World Economic Situation and Prospects 2018 report.

No need to go through every growth estimating article. The up and down of the estimation is not important from the UPSC perspective. We have recently written some newscards on the same topic. You can go through them.

The Op-Ed talks about internal issues of the USA. The internal issues of another country are not important for the UPSC exam, unless they are connected to India, in some way.
