Highlights of India Today 18th February 2019, issue:
This week's cover story - Surgical Sops - analyses the impact of the budget proposals on the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The NDA has exuded confidence over its interim budget and is confident of a victory in the elections. While rival parties pegged the Narendra Modi government's budget as a populist measure, interim finance minister Piyush Goyal said there was careful rationale behind every move.
The package encompasses a feature on the state of jobs and farmers in the country. Apart from a detailed analysis of the minimum support price scheme proposed for the welfare of marginal farmers, it also examines whether the government addressed the elephant in the room - India's dismal employment outlook.
This edition's Big Story discusses the recent CBI vs Kolkata police episode and how West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee turned the showdown into an opportunity to project herself as the leader of the anti-Modi alliance.
The issue also offers an in-depth analysis of the economic and cultural advances in the state of Punjab. In this edition of State of the States, find out how Punjab has managed to keep growing economically even as its debt share continues to rise.
