"In India, gold demand for 2015 saw a marginal increase to 849 tonnes from 828 tonnes in 2014. In Q4, 2015 gold demand grew by 6% to 233 tonnes from 220 tonnes in the same period last year. Demand for gold has proven resilient in the face of a range of challenges, underlining the role of gold as an essential component of households' savings and reinforcing the need to bring gold into the financial infrastructure," WGC Managing Director India, Somasundaram PR said. Gold prices soared by Rs. 215 to Rs. 28,800 per 10 grams at the bullion market on a firming trend overseas amid increased buying by jewellers to meet the ongoing wedding season demand. 19-month high, it is the longest winning streak for the yellow metal. The rupee was quoting lower by 30 paise to 68.15 against the dollar (intra-day) at the forex market. Silver, however, met with resistance at prevailing levels and eased by Rs. 130 to Rs. 37,100 per kg. The bold approach exemplified by the launching the gold schemes towards the end of 2015, should be carried through with a singular focus on making gold fungible for the average household through the banking system, Somasundaram said. "The economy will benefit significantly by anticipating that gold demand will be robust," he added. By Premji
Senior leaders of the CPI-M and the Congress has on Wednesday, pitched together for an alliance in the upcoming assembly polls in West Bengal, saying both parties needed to forget the bitter rivalry of the past. Communist Party of India-Marxist Politburo member Mohammed Salim and state Congress spokesman Om Prakash Mishra alleged that civil liberty is absent and opposition parties were victims of violence and terror tactics under Trinamool rule."When the house is on fire, we shout and call our neighbours. Then we don't remember whether we had some old quarrel or disagreements with these neighbours," Salim said. "Let us not live in the past. We have to respect the sentiments of the people who want freedom from the misrule and tyranny perpetrated by the Trinamool Congress," he said."It is not the right time to harp on our past differences. But it is the right time to come together to fulfil our common goal of ridding Bengal of Trinamool misrule and taking it back on the road to progress," said Salim. "We may again have differences in the future. But this is not the right time to cling on to the past. We have to face the electorate jointly, as that is the wish of the people," he added."We are not bothered whether the alliance is formed or not. We only know that the opposition is in no position to win, as people feel they are inimical to policies of development," Trinamool Congress leader Sabyasachi Bagchi claimed.By Premji

The JNU administration on Wednesday ordered a “disciplinary” enquiry into the holding of an event on the campus against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, despite the cancellation of permission, saying any talk about country’s disintegration cannot be “national”. The university’s action came in wake of protests by members of ABVP outside the VC office demanding the expulsion of the students who “misled” the university about nature of the event. “The permission for the program was sought by giving incomplete information, so it is an act of indiscipline. A committee headed by the Chief Proctor will examine the footage of the event and speak to the witnesses. It is on basis of the report, the varsity will take appropriate action,” JNU Vice-Chancellor Jagdeesh Kumar said. The varsity Registrar Bhupinder Zutshi said, “There was nowhere mentioned in the permission request that the event will be on Afzal Guru, they just said that they wanted to organise a cultural event. How can any talk about disintegration of nation be national?” JNU students’ union joint secretary Saurabh Kumar, who is the only ABVP member in the union, said, “How can an event on Afzal Guru, who attacked the temple of democracy, be held here? We are demanding expulsion of those who organised it”. “This was an anti-national event. When we tried to stop them from holding a march, I was shown a gun. They raised anti-India slogans and for freedom of Kashmir,” he alleged. “The VC has told us that an inquiry has been ordered and based on the report action will be taken. But we will approach the HRD ministry as well as the Home Ministry demanding that the students who contributed to this “anti-national” activity be expelled,” said Alok Singh, President of ABVP’s JNU unit. “This is a set pattern where we get permission, but then ABVP comes right on the day of program and administration cancels it last moment. Even screening of movies on controversial issues are considered anti-national. This is replication of what happened in Hyderabad University, where ABVP’s actions forced Rohit to commit suicide,” said Anirban Bhattacharya, one of the organizers. By Premji
