by Bibhudatta Pradhan and Pratik Parija An election promise to farmers in the politically sensitive state of Uttar Pradesh is coming back to haunt Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as other states demand the federal government offer an agriculture bailout package across the country. During the hard-fought election campaign, Modi pledged that if his party was voted to power in Uttar Pradesh, it would write off loans of farmers. Earlier this month, the Bharatiya Janata Party formed government after securing a significant majority in the state. In Bajherakhurd village in Uttar Pradesh, Kumarpal Singh is eagerly awaiting the announcement that will result in part of his current Rs 640,000 loan ($9,772) being waived. He received a bailout of Rs 10,000 in 1990. “It will give me some relief from the loan burden -- otherwise I will sell part of my land,” said Singh, 67, describing how it is tough for him to pay off the loan due to crop damage and poor prices for his rice and wheat.

Referring to the government's aim of converting all vehicles to electric vehicles, Goyal said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had directed a group of senior ministers to lead the initiative to ensure that most vehicles in India, if not all, were powered by electricity latest by 2030. "The conversion of India's vehicles into electrical ones has the potential to save fossil fuel worth about $100 billion annually and reduce pollution in cities by 80-90 per cent," the minister said. He said that according to a government study, India can power its entire vehicular traffic in 2030 on solar power by using only 1 per cent of the land area of Rajasthan. Holding humankind squarely responsible for climate challenge, Goyal cited Mahatma Gandhi's 1911 phrase - "economy of nature" - to say that only human beings themselves can address the issue. "The Earth provides enough for every man's need, but not for every man's greed," he quoted Gandhi as saying.

NEW DELHI: Coca-Cola’s global CEO-designate James Quincey is likely to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to India next week amid talk that New Delhi may bring in a sugar tax on carbonated beverages as part of the programme to promote a healthy lifestyle. “Quincey will discuss the implications of a likely sugar tax with the PM, with the Goods and Service Tax (GST) expected to roll out soon,” an official directly aware of the development said. The proposed meeting, which the company says is not yet confirmed by the administration, takes place just before the British-born executive assumes leadership of the world’s largest beverage firm. “We are yet to receive any official confirmation from the office of the Prime Minister with regard to this meeting, (and), therefore, unable to comment,” a Coca-Cola India spokesperson said in response to an e-mailed query.
