VVIP chopper deal: CBI seizes cash, jewellery
The CBI has conducted searches against three suspects in the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal case and seized about Rs. 85 lakh. Jewellery worth over Rs. 1 crore was also found in two lockers.
It is a famous case of corruption. But there is no need to go after each and every corruption case, separately.
The turnover test in Pakistan
After the ouster of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt followed by a democratic victory of the Muslim Brotherhood, we ended up with a former military general backed by the U.S. and Saudi Arabia. In Thailand, a long democratic transition found complete reversal with the military coup of 2014, and now three years later, elections seem a long way away. In Indonesia, the democratic transition, after 32 years of military rule, in 1998 took at least ten or so years before Indonesia was said to have become a more stable democracy.
The op-ed is not directly related to India. And therefore it has very less relevance from the UPSC perspective.
