Despite Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar ditching the Mahagathbandhan (Grand Alliance) and joining hands with the BJP, it is in national interest to ensure that the alliance does not collapse.

Truth has its own ways of revealing itself. One of the professed and loudly proclaimed aims of demonetization was unearthing black money, unmasking the black-money holders and bringing them to book. Data already released by the RBI and other financial bodies have established the fact that very little, if at all, black money has been unearthed. None has so far been prosecuted for holding black money. Now comes a Times of India report which says that ‘offshore’ hoarding of money from India now stands at $62.9 billion or Rs.
