Looks like our Mr. Perfectionist has gone now extra cautious before the second season of Satyamev Jayate aired on TV! Wondering what we are talking about? Well, Aamir Khan has reportedly paid Rs. 10 Crores for his own safety after receiving series of threats. The actor has bought a bullet and explosive proof Mercedes Benz S600 worth that amount, which makes him the owner of the most expensive car in B-town. By purchasing this ‘special protection’ car, Aamir has joined the likes of industrialist Mukesh Ambani and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who owns similar kind of bullet proof car. Although Aamir was apparently reluctant to purchase such type of special car, we hear that his family and friends convinced him to order it. We wonder if the show makers of Satyamev Jayate want their host to take this extra precaution, or is this just a marketing gimmick?

Narendra Modi slams Nehru, Manmohan Singh hits back with jibe at Modi - The invitation card of the function says that the prime minister will be the chief guest and the Gujarat chief minister will be the special guest.
The Reserve Bank of India's sudden decision to raise bank rate by 0.25 basis points will not bring down the prices but instead will prove counterproductive and will actually fuel price rise. The UPA government has increased Bank Rate, CRR, Repo Rate and Reverse Repo rate umpteen times without any tangible results. The government strategy to combat inflation remained restricted to squeezing the demand by raising the interest rates. When NDA demitted office Bank Rate and Repo Rate were 6% which have been raised to 9% by UPA government. This has ensured high interest rate regime to the detriment of the export industries and raised EMIs for the middle class. The high finance cost impacts adversely all the segments of the economy. The UPA government never succeeded in addressing the supply side issues, thus failing in arresting the inflation. This is the result of bankruptcy of ideas on the part of Manmohan Singh and Chidambaram in reviving the economy. Congress government wants people to cheer about their likely announcement of increasing the cap of subsidised LPG cylinders from 9 to 12 per family per year. People of the country are in no mood to appreciate Congress. Instead they are asking a simple question that who brought LPG cap of 6 cylinders in the first place? The decision to cap LPG cylinders in the nick of overall price rise was an anti people decision. People will not forget and forgive the UPA Government for this step. Till July 2012 all families were getting required number of LPG cylinders at a subsidised cost. UPA Government withdrew it in August 2012. When NDA Government demitted office the price of subsidised LPG was Rs.244 now it is Rs. 415 and people have to purchase each cylinder at the open market price of Rs. 1241. The much hyped DBT is yet to reach and benefit many families.

In a brazen terror attack on the eve of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's visit, suspected Hizbul Mujahideen militants on Monday (June 24) ambushed an Army convoy killing eight Army jawans and injuring 19 others near Hyderpora area on the outskirts of the city. The attack, the second in three days and the deadliest so far this year, was claimed to have been carried out by pro-Pakistan Hizbul Mujahideen but security establishment believe that it was handiwork of banned Lashker-e-Taiba terror outfit. The security has been beefed up across the state in view of the attack as intelligence inputs suggested that the militants may try to carry out more such attacks during the VVIP visit. According to sources, unmanned aerial vehicles were also pressed into service to carry out technical surveillance of Pir Panjal and Zabarwan mountain ranges amid inputs that militants armed with rockets had formed their base in the ridges of these mountains. Monday's audacious attack took place at 1635 hours near Classic hospital on Panthachowk-Parimpora stretch on national highway leading to North Kashmir when a convoy of 35 Rashtriya Rifles was going to its base camp at Budgam. Militants, armed with AK assault rifles, attacked the convoy from front as well as back and, according to eyewitnesses, three terrorists carried out the attack that left eight jawans dead and 16 others injured. According to the Army, the condition of three jawans was stated to be critical. The militants, who had snatched a motorcycle from two students in nearby Baghat area, fled from the scene on the two-wheeler as Army cordoned off the area. While fleeing, the militants were intercepted by a joint naka party of police and CRPF at Barzulla. The ultras hurled a grenade and opened firing, resulting in injuries to a CRPF sub-inspector, a policeman and a civilian woman. The militants then boarded a black Santro car and sped from the place. A high alert has been sounded and security forces have been asked to remain on look out for the car. Army pressed into service choppers in an attempt to track the car used by the militants. The students, whose bike was hijacked, told police that militants were armed with AK 47 rifles and spoke chaste Urdu, normally not spoken in Kashmir. Hizbul Mujahideen has claimed responsibility for the attack. A person Baliguddin, identifying himself as the spokesperson of the outfit, called up a local news agency and said several squads have been formed and similar attacks will be carried out in the city in the future as well. Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said such attacks will not shatter the morale of the security forces who have had great success in the past against the militant group. "Such high profile attacks are aimed at restoring the shattered morale of the militants while trying to demoralise the security forces," he said. Monday's attack comes two days after Hizbul Mujahideen militants gunned down two policemen in the heart of Srinagar city. The brazen attack came even as security has been beefed up across the Valley in view of Prime Minister's two-day visit starting Tuesday. PMO sources in Delhi said that there was no change in Singh's programme. The Prime Minister is scheduled to reach Srinagar along with UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi on a two-day visit, during which he is expected to announce a package for border districts of Jammu and Kashmir. Singh and Gandhi will also launch train service on a railway section between Qazigund in Kashmir and Banihal in Jammu region that will provide an all-weather link to the Valley.
