Opinion/Editorial:

Doklam impasse:
BJP, the party of Indian Union Prime Minister Narendra Modi, recently held what it calls its National Executive meeting. Here, Narendra Modi was lauded for a ‘peaceful’ solution to the Doklam stand-off over a China controlled Bhutanese claimed territory. It is important to look at how well the BJP has been able to sell it as a ‘success’ according to its chest beating Hindi-Hindu-Hindustan male ideology to its core constituency and beyond, the beyond being non-Hindi upper-caste males. But it is a complete failure according to all publicly propagandised standards of success in that ideology. It shows the power of politically crafted lies crafted as spins on reality and a compliant public and private media network that echoes this message.

CPEC – Myths from Realities:
The China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a key component in China’s ambitious 65-nation “One Belt-One Road” (OBOR) economic integration and development initiative, has long been the target of criticism. The concerns of skeptics are wide ranging, from security to political to economic. As soon as the ‘Long-Term Plan’ on CPEC’ was unveiled in May 2017, it was immediately labeled as one that would have long-lasting impact on Pakistan’s surveillance, entertainment, agriculture, tourism, transportation, finance, and security situations. Some have likened it to neo-colonialism claiming that China is not an NGO coming to distribute jobs and aid packages; nor is it a wealthy relative visiting us from abroad, bringing presents without demanding anything substantial in return. CPEC, they opine, is a project designated specifically for the Chinese – with any benefit enjoyed by Pakistan being purely accidental. Once fully implemented, it will greatly diminish Pakistan’s authority over its own land and resources and whereas, during its implementation, it does entail an impressive infusion of capital into Pakistan, but in the long run a lot more capital will be siphoned out than what was originally brought in.

Sports:

Uncertain Bayern face high-spending PSG today:
BERLIN: Bayern Munich play Paris Saint-Germain away in a blockbuster Champions League clash on Wednesday with the old ‘FC Hollywood’ nickname having returned to haunt the Bavarian giants.

Even the coach got in on the act when Giovanni Trapattoni famously exploded in rage at his players’ performances during a press conference.( http://dailytimes.com.pk/e-paper/2017-09-27/lahore/14367/108909)
