Low Priority News Items of the Day:

Alliance with Rajini unlikely if he acquires saffron hue: Kamal Haasan

In his keynote address, the actor said, “The apathy shown by the political class on the financial health and management, poor management of waterways and the gradual lowering of the bar in every aspect of society have affected the State. My true purpose today is to challenge the status quo and the mediocrity in politics that is plaguing the State,” he said.

The article talks about a political statement given by a political leader. These kind of political statements on any issue are not important from the UPSC perspective.


Endgame in Bangladesh

With the sentencing of former Bangladesh Prime Minister and chairperson of the opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Begum Khaleda Zia to five years rigorous imprisonment in a corruption case, the country enters into uncharted waters. For as long as most Bangladeshis have been alive, political power in the country has been more or less evenly divided between the Awami League (AL) and the BNP. But now, for the first time, it looks as though one of the parties is within striking distance of a blow that will take the other party out of contention permanently, thereby ushering in a new era in domestic politics.

The Op-Ed talks about internal politics of Bangladesh. As it does not directly related to India’s foreign policy, it is not important from the UPSC’s point of view.
