On Tuesday, Gautam Adani, Asia’s richest man indirectly bought a 29% stake in broadcaster NDTV Ltd and proposed, as required by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), an offer to further acquire another additional 26% from its shareholders.

Adani indirectly bought NDTV by taking over Vishvapradhan Commercial Pvt Ltd (VCPL), VCPL, who had loaned out an interest-free loan of Rs 403.85 crore to the promoter company of NDTV, RRPR Holding Pvt Ltd.

VCPL, by providing an interest-free loan entitled itself to convert the interest into 99.9 percent of the stake in RRPR, which is owned by the Roys and holds a 29.18 percent stake of NDTV.

NDTV further disclosed that the takeover was hostile and was done without any prior discussion or consent from the NDTV founders Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy, who holds 32.26 percent in NDTV.

The rumors of NDTV’s Prime Time anchor’s resignation were also surfacing on the internet but Ravish Kumar himself came forward and tweeted, quashing all the rumors.

Ravish in his Tweet took a satirical dig at Narendra Modi like he usually does, and stated that the news of his resignation is as much true as the news of Prime Minister Narendra Modi finally agreeing to give him an interview and Akshay Kumar is waiting at the gate for him with mangoes in hand.

Sankalp Saptaah

At Bharat Mandapam in New Delhi on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi introduced a week-long project named Sankalp Saptaah for the country’s aspirational groups.

He also conversed with attendees, including members from the panchayat and the block level.

The week-long programme, which is described in an official news release, is closely correlated with the national Aspirational Blocks Programme (ABP), which Modi introduced in January of this year.

The country’s Sankalp Saptah programme, which is being implemented in 500 aspirational blocks throughout 329 districts, seeks to increase block-level government while also improving civilian quality of life.

Chintan Shivirs were held nationwide at the village and block levels to help with the effective execution of the ABP and to create strong block development strategies. The result of these careful considerations, which will be seen in each of the 500 aspirational blocks, is Sankalp Saptaah.

On October 9, the final day of the seven-day event, a celebration of the week’s worth of effort will take place under the banner of Sankalp Saptaah – Samavesh Samaroh.

Speaking at the inaugural function, the prime minister claimed that more than 25 crore people’s lives in 112 districts throughout the nation had been improved by the aspirational districts plan. He asserted that the quality of living had changed. Now, the aspirational blocks programme will be built on the success of the aspirational districts programme, he said.

According to the statement, about 3,000 panchayat and block level functionaries and representatives of the people are expected to attend the inaugural event at Bharat Mandapam, in addition to about two lakh farmers, block and panchayat level functionaries, and people from other walks of life who will participate virtually.

Starting on October 3 and running through October 9, each day of Sankalp Saptaah is devoted to a distinct development subject on which all aspirational blocks will focus. Sampoorna Swasthya, Suposhit Pariwaar, Swachhta, Krishi, Shiksha, and Samridhi Diwas are some of the themes for the first six days, according to the statement.

President Droupadi Murmu gives assent to Women’s Reservation Bill

The Women’s Reservation Bill became law in India after President Droupadi Murmu gave her assent, days after the historic vote in the Parliament. The new law provides 33% reservation of seats in the Lok Sabha and state assemblies for women. However, the law will be imposed after the new census and delimitation. 

The Women’s Reservation Bill which is officially known as Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam was passed in both the houses during the special session of the Parliament. The historic bill was passed in the Lok Sabha on September 20, with 454 MPs voting in its favour and 2 voting against it. In the Rajya Sabha, the bill was passed unanimously on September 21 with 214 MPs voting in favour of the bill.  

Issuing a gazette notification, the Government of India stated that the Bill has become an Act after the approval granted by the President. The notification read that the act will come into force on such date as the central government may, by notification in the Official Gazette, appoint. 

While supporting the historic bill in the Parliament, the Opposition condemned the government for not bringing the quota for women into immediate effect. Union Home Minister Amit Shah told the Parliament during the bill’s discussion that it could only come into effect after 2029 due to the pending census and delimitation.

A day after the bill was passed in the Rajya Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi remarked that with the passage of the Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam in Parliament, the nation usher in an era of stronger representation and empowerment for the women of India. He added that this is not merely legislation but a tribute to the countless women who have made the nation. He exclaimed that India has been enriched by their resilience and contributions.
