• Stakes high for Cong in fourth phase

    Stakes are high for the Congress in the fourth phase of Assembly elections on Thursday in 53 constituencies across 12 districts of Uttar Pradesh.

The SP, which had won 28 seats in this region last time, is hard-pressed to retain its hold, while the BJP – which had emerged victorious in five seats – is trying

    Lucknow: When the campaigning for these Assembly elections began, everyone said Punjab will be far more interesting than UP. This was just days after the last rites of the Samajwadi Party had been written by several well-known political journalists. Other, even better-known journalists, had said that Mulayam Singh Yadav will be turn out to be the ultimate winner, he was the pehelwan in the state, Akhilesh a mere pretender. Even more famous journalists (some of them owing their fame mostly to Twitter) said Behenji, she is working silently, she will win, throwing in some bewildering kaleidoscope of caste equations and ‘elephant moving quietly through the jungle’ metaphors to make their points.

  • Reliance Jio racks up 100 million subscribers but ends freebies

    By Sankalp Phartiyal and Devidutta Tripathy MUMBAI (Reuters) - Reliance Industries' Jio telecoms unit will charge for its services from April, ending an almost seven month spree of free calls and data that shook up India's telecoms sector and helped the new arrival rack up more than 100 million users. The shift to paid services, even at a sharp discount to established players, will test the appeal of Jio and the fundamentals behind a $20 billion investment in telecoms by Reliance - one of the world's largest energy groups. In a speech broadcast live on company social media accounts, Reliance owner and India's richest man Mukesh Ambani announced Jio had passed the 100 million subscriber mark and its service would cover most of the country's billion-plus population by the end of the year.

  • A look at who are the richest of the rich in the world

    Sitting at a table, grinding his pinkie into the corner of his mouth and staring at the screen, Dr Evil announces he is holding the world ransom for $1 million. Having been cryogenically frozen for 30 years, the comic villain created by the actor Mike Myers is shocked when he is told that $1 million isn't a lot of money in 1997. Trying to regain his composure, he turns to the screen, voice cracking with uncertainty, and says, "OK then, we hold the world ransom for $100 billion." Twenty years after the movie "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" was released, billions of dollars aren't what they used to be, either. Bill Gates alone is just $10 billion shy of Dr. Evil's ransom demand, according
