Congress manifesto’s focus is on inequality

It is an attempt to have a reasonable conversation about equality and inclusion, one that listens to the whole range of voices in our society.

Make in India has fallen far short of expectations on the job front

Despite rising costs in China, India has made little headway into becoming a global manufacturing alternative, particularly at the low end that generates the most jobs.
