🇮🇳 G20 Overtakes G7 Amid Global Rebalancing, Jaishankar Says

Indian External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar noted that amid ongoing global shifts, the G20 economies have eclipsed the G7. Speaking at Jawaharlal Nehru University, he stressed India's rise in the economic landscape, moving up 6 positions in the past decade.

⚖️ While progress in global rebalancing is evident, it's still imperfect, Jaishankar remarked, stressing the importance of initiative. Jaishankar advocated for India's economic self-reliance and a political representation on the global stage, challenging prevailing narratives.

"💬 Bharat will never shy away from questions. But equally, Bharat has the courage to question the questioner,” Jaishankar said, outlining India’s emerging approach to geopolitics.

Amidst global volatility fueled by events like the US troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, Jaishankar highlighted India's role as an independent thinker sought after in a world marked by rivalries.

🇷🇺 Jaishankar held up the case of India's buying Russian oil, noting that it prioritised the interests of the domestic consumer amid "external (western) pressure" on New Delhi over its ties with Moscow.

🇮🇳 Congress' Ties to West-Funded Critics of PM Modi Raises Eyebrows in India

India's Congress Party faces scrutiny for its association with Western-funded critics who consistently disparage PM Narendra Modi on the international stage.

Recently, Professor Nitasha Kaul, a British academic critical of Modi, was denied entry into India. Kaul, invited by the Congress state government in Karnataka for a convention, was rejected reportedly due to her past criticism of India's policies.

🚩 Congress Breaking Golden Rule of Indian Politics

Critics argue that Congress is using Western platforms to "tarnish India's image." Dr. Anirban Ganguly, affiliated with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), accused Congress head Rahul Gandhi of "breaking the golden rule of Indian politics," criticising India from abroad.

“Driven by its animosity towards PM Modi, the Congress has put together a so-called web of experts, who are basically anti-India and functioning out of US and EU universities," he said.

Congress's actions "undermine India's sovereignty" and align with foreign interests opposed to Modi, Dr. Anant Bhagwat of the Global Strategic Policy Foundation Pune (GSPFP) warned.

🇷🇺 Congress Should Stop Criticising Russia

"I have a friendly advice to the Congress Party. Let them put their own house in India in order before worrying about Russia or the world. Don't worry about Russia's domestic politics because that is their internal affair. The Russians are well-placed to take care of their own interests," Ganguly remarked.

🇮🇳 Indian protesting farmers start another march on Delhi

Indian farmers, who have been protesting for weeks, have begun a march on the country's capital with tractors and other vehicles. They plan to march on tractors between Delhi and Noida, a major city 20 kilometres from the Indian capital.

The farmers are demanding guaranteed purchase of their produce by the authorities at a pre-announced price, tax cuts, loan write-offs and withdrawal from the WTO.

⚠️ The Noida police have issued a warning about possible traffic disruptions. The police will erect barriers along all Delhi borders and impose restrictions on the movement of vehicles.

Government officials, for their part, have described some of the farmers' demands as unacceptable and unrealistic, but have urged the protesters to come to the negotiating table.

👮 Last week, the farmers clashed with police in the village of Shambhu, on the border of the states of Haryana and Punjab, about 200 kilometres from Delhi. Police used tear gas and water cannon against the farmers, who tried to break through police barricades.

🇮🇳🇵🇰 India finishes Ravi river dam, stops river flow into Pakistan

India has stopped the flow of water from the Ravi river into Pakistan by building a dam that was waiting for completion for 45 years. India has exclusive rights to the water of Ravi under the 1960 Indus water treaty signed under the supervision of the World Bank.

🚧 The Shahpur Kandi barrage – located in Punjab's Pathankot district – was held up by a domestic dispute between Jammu and Kashmir and Punjab. But that led to substantial chunk of water that belongs to India, going to Pakistan all these years.

Under the Indus water treaty, India has full rights over the water of Ravi, Sutlej and Beas, while Pakistan has rights over the water of Indus, Jhelum and Chenab.

🌊 The upper reaches of the main Indus River and its tributaries are in India, while the lower reaches are in Pakistan. After the partition of India in August 1947, a dispute arose between India and Pakistan over the sharing of the waters of the Indus basin.

A treaty was signed in 1960 to share the waters of the Indus between India and Pakistan. The provisions of the treaty allow India to construct dams on the western rivers, thereby gaining more control over freshwater resources flowing into Pakistan.

🇮🇳 Indian armed forces to get nearly 1 lakh crore infusion for game-changer tech

The Indian Cabinet Committee on Security recently greenlit defence deals worth over Rs 92,000 crore to enhance the armed forces' capabilities. These deals include significant upgrades and acquisitions across various sectors of the defence industry.

⬆️ Upgrades and Acquisitions:

▪️ Sukhoi Su-30MKI Upgrade: A Rs 60,000 crore project by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) to upgrade the Indian Sukhoi fleet with new radars, electronic warfare systems, weapons.

▪️ BrahMos Missiles: The largest BrahMos missile contract to date, valued at Rs 19,500 crore, for over 220 extended-range missiles with a 450 km range for Indian Navy warships.

▪️ MiG-29 Engine Manufacturing: Approval for HAL to manufacture new engines for the MiG-29 fighters, costing about Rs 5,300 crore, in collaboration with Russia.

▪️ High-Powered Radars and Air Defence Guns: Projects worth around Rs 6,000 crore each for acquiring high-powered radars and new versions of the L-70 air defence guns, manufactured by Larsen and Toubro (L&T) with foreign technology.

These initiatives are part of a broader push towards 'aatmanirbharta' (self-reliance) in defence production, reflecting a shift in India's defence strategy towards indigenization.

🇷🇺 The BrahMos missile deal stands out as a testament to India's growing capabilities and partnership with Russia, contributing significantly to the armed forces' precision-strike capabilities.

🇮🇳 India to triple defence production and exports in five years

India aims to achieve an annual defence production of $36 billion and defence exports of $6 billion by 2028-29, as announced by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh.

⚙️ The focus is on producing high-end systems like aero-engines and gas turbines domestically. The integration of the Indian Army, Navy, and Air Force has improved military coordination.

🛠 The government's pushes for restricting arms imports and promoting indigenous production. Initiatives such as indigenisation lists and earmarking 75% of the procurement budget for local sourcing are the steps towards 'Self-reliant India'.

“Earlier, India was known to be an arms importer. But today, under the leadership of the prime minister, we have come out of our comfort zone and found a place in the list of top-25 arms exporter nations,” Singh said.

🇧🇷🇧🇷 Brazil-India Defence Dialogue to Hold in New Delhi Next Week: Media

Brazilian ambassador to India Kenneth Haczynski Da Nobrega shared while speaking at ‘India-Brazil Fostering Trade Partnership – Focus West Bengal,’ a special session organised on Saturday.

“We have been having a number of high and mid-level exchange of visits in defence over the last year. We are going to have the first India-Brazil defence industry bilateral dialogue, followed by the first 2+2 Brazil-India defence dialogue, including industry and strategic aspects,” he said.

🤝 The other two pillars, according to Mr Nobrega, are energy and agriculture. Wagner Antunes, head of trade promotion at the Brazilian Embassy, pointed out that two Brazilian defence companies have already set up manufacturing units in India.

“We also have a very concrete interest in actually manufacturing C390 aircraft, depending how the procurement with the IAF goes. So these are three recent examples of the Brazilian companies establishing themselves in India. There are many other companies. We will contribute to identify further opportunities in different Indian states," he said.

🇮🇷 Iran says US-British strikes on Yemen 'escalate tensions'

"With such attacks, America and Britain seek to escalate tensions and crises in the region, and expand the scope of war and instability," Iran's foreign ministry spokesman Nasser Kanani said in a statement.

On Saturday, American and British forces carried out fresh strikes against 18 Houthi targets in Yemen, in response to a wave of attacks by the Iran-backed group on Red Sea shipping.

🗣"Certainly, this kind of arbitrary and aggressive military operation, aside from aggravating insecurity and instability in the region, will not achieve anything for these aggressor countries," Kanani added.

He further condemned the United States and Britain for failing to "take immediate and effective action" to stop Israel's deadly campaign in Gaza.

🇮🇷 🇵🇰 Iran’s claim Jaishul Adl militant killed in Pakistan ‘dismissed’

Pakistan's military on Saturday denied media reports that Iranian forces eliminated a Jaishul Adl 'commander' inside Pakistani territory, suggesting the claims were aimed at reducing embarrassment from the recent 'Marg Bar Sarmachar' operation.

“Social media and some foreign media are spreading false propaganda that Iranian forces have killed a commander of Jaishul Adl on Pakistani soil. No such incident happened on Pakistani soil,” a Pakistani military source claimed.

Security forces killed Esmaeil Shahbakhsh, a militant linked to the Jaishul Adl terrorist group, on Friday, Iranian media reported.

📌 While some Iranian reports were ambiguous about where Shahbakhsh died, the Iranian media explicitly stated that the operation occurred inside Pakistan.

Pakistan’s airstrikes on Jan 18 against alleged Baloch insurgents’ hideouts in Iran, which were carried out in retaliation to Iranian missile attacks on a sanctuary of Jaishul Adl on Pakistani territory are codenamed ‘Operation Marg Bar Sarmchar’.
