Budget 2015 Sensex Up 860 Points in 4 Days Markets Cheer Jaitleys

first_imgThe pre-Budget rally witnessed in stock markets in the last couple of days sustained itself on Friday, responding to Union Finance Ministery Arun Jaitley’s statement that his party’s defeat in the recent Delhi Assembly polls won’t slowdown economic reforms. The 30-scrip benchmark index – S&P BSE Sensex  – has risen about 860 points in four straight trading sessions starting from Tuesday, to end slightly above 29,000 on Friday. Analysts are expecting it to cross the 30,000-mark, either days before the Budget or around 28 February, the day it will be presented. The target for the 50-scrip Nifty is 9,200.On Thursday, Jaitley, while speaking in the presence of US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew in New Delhi, had said, “The fact that four (state assembly) elections have been won and one has not been won is absolutely no ground for believing that there will be any slowdown on the path which we have undertaken.”Brokerages and investors are expecting Budget 2015 to contain proposals to increase capital spending and extend tax breaks for the manufacturing sector, which has continued to remain sluggish. U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew (R) shakes hands with India’s Finance Minister Arun Jaitley before the fifth U.S.-India Economic and Financial Partnership Dialogue in New Delhi February 12, 2015.ReutersInvestors should look at the government’s spending plans and in areas that would receive more funds, Birla Sun Life Mutual Fund Co-CIO Mahesh Patil said.He added that the government should increase its spending in a few areas, with special emphasis on infrastructure and was keen to know the government’s plans to incentivise the manufacturing sector.With the BJP winning only three seats of the 70 in Delhi, investors were worried if Prime Minister Narendra Modi would go for ‘populist measures’. However, Jaitley was quick to dispel any such apprehension.  Budget 2015Investors and analysts have seen the stock market gain momentum in the run up to the Budget. Expectations point to the markets hitting fresh records on hope of further reforms being initiated by the NDA government.They implore investors to continue to use every opportunity, particularly the volatilities to continue to stay invested, said EconomicTimes.The upcoming Budget is expected to be the harbinger of the government’s plan and direction for India over the next few years.last_img read more

Trumps Election Drives More Women To Consider Running For Office

first_img Share Megan Kamerick/KUNMKate Noble speaks to voters at a listening session at Gonzales Community School in Santa Fe, N.M. She ran for a seat on the Santa Fe Public Schools Board.Will the election of Donald Trump, who once boasted of grabbing women by the genitalia and has a history of sexist remarks, create a wave of female candidates at all levels of government in the coming years?Early signs from the groups that work with women considering a bid for office suggest a level of intense interest not seen in at least a quarter century.Kate Noble had never considered getting involved in politics until she woke up the day after Trump’s surprise victory over Hillary Clinton.Noble worked for years in the economic development office of Santa Fe, N.M., and she believes a good workforce depends on well-educated citizens, so she decided to run for a local school board seat.Her political philosophy is distinctly un-Trumpian: “I want to be someone who can bring forward anybody’s and everybody’s good ideas. They don’t need to be my own.”The interest in running for office comes as women are still far from having anywhere close to proportionate representation at any level of government. In Congress, about 20 percent of lawmakers are women, while in statehouses, about 25 percent of lawmakers are women.In Noble’s case, she contacted the New Mexico branch of Emerge, a group that trains Democratic women to run for office. She ended up running unopposed and won.A Trump bumpIt turns out Noble wasn’t the only woman to wake up with the same idea after the election.“We saw an immediate uptick in interest in our work,” said Andrea Dew Steele, the president and founder of Emerge America. “And it has persisted through today. It’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen.”Applications for the group’s training sessions increased 87 percent after Election Day, Steele said.“Some of it is absolutely a reaction to President Trump and his policies,” said Jean Sinzdak, of the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University. “For others, it is Hillary Clinton’s loss,” because the fact that we don’t have a female president “sort of woke them up to the idea that maybe we haven’t made as much progress as we thought.”Sinzdak oversees the university’s nonpartisan New Jersey training program, Ready to Run, which also has affiliates nationwide. Ready to Run is experiencing its own Trump bump with more than 50 women signing up immediately after Election Day. This year’s program is already at capacity, which Sinzdak, who has been running the program for 12 years, says typically doesn’t happen until March. The program has been expanded to accommodate up to 50 extra people.Both Steele and Sinzdak say the interest they’re seeing from women who want to run for office reminds them of what they saw in the early 1990s following the Anita Hill hearings. Hill had accused then-Supreme Court nominee, now Justice, Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment.After those hearings, Sinzdak said, “We did have an increase in the numbers of women running for office and we saw a big jump in the number of women who ran for and won election to Congress.”Local and state officesWhile Trump became president without ever running for another office, most people get their start in politics the way Noble is, by running for local office.“I don’t think people realize that a lot of the decisions that are made that affect their daily lives happen at the local and state levels,” said Ashley Sanderson, the executive director of Emerge New Mexico.But a surge in interest in running for office might not translate into women actually running for office, said Rachel Michelin, executive director of the nonpartisan training group California Women Lead, pointing to 2012 as a year that was supposed to be good for female candidates in California.“We had open seats. We just had redistricting in California. It was a presidential election. So we thought we would see this big surge of women getting elected,” she said. “What happened, though, was we just didn’t have enough women running.”That’s where groups like California Women Lead, Emerge America and Ready to Run come in to help guide women from signing up for a training program to actually running for office. Steele, of Emerge America, believes this latest burst of enthusiasm is different from past years and she’s confident that more women will actually run in 2018.“The biggest challenge for us is getting more women interested in running,” said Steele. “So the fact that women are self-nominating, are waking up and saying ‘I want to do this,’ is the biggest, most hopeful sign that I’ve seen definitely since the Anita Hill hearings.”As for Noble, she says she’s already learned a lot by running for office.“I have really liked listening to people, working on ideas, having people listening to me.” She says the school board campaign was a good test run for future campaigns. “I’m so energized.”Copyright 2017 KQED Public Media.
