India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi gestures as he addresses a gathering in New Delhi, India. VOA

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said peace will be possible in India’s neighbourhood only if Pakistan stopped exporting terror.

“If they stop exporting terror, it will be very easy to maintain peace,” Modi told ABP News on Thursday. “This is not a difficult task.”


Modi added that it was “very difficult” to know who runs Pakistan.

“Whether it is the elected government or whether it is the Army or the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) or those who have left Pakistan and are staying abroad. Whom to talk to is a big issue for everyone,” he said.

Modi declined to say who was the better Prime Minister: Nawaz Sharif or Imran Khan.

“Let this be decided by the people of Pakistan. My work is to focus on the interests of India. I have no responsibility to run the affairs in Pakistan,” he said.

On some in India seeking evidence of the Indian Air Force strikes in Balakot in Pakistan, he said it was Pakistan which tweeted and announced that New Delhi bombed its territory.

“Pakistan gave the proof in its tweets… I am surprised that some Indians are speaking a language that pleases Pakistan and it bothers me. If India had targeted the Pakistan Army or their citizens, our neighbours would have tried to defame India.”

Modi told the TV channel: “We ensured that no Pakistani citizen was harmed. The IAF successfully did what was planned.”

Tensions between India and Pakistan escalated after the IAF bombed a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) training camp at Balakot, 12 days after the terror outfit claimed responsibility for a suicide attack on a CRPF convoy in Kashmir which killed 40 CRPF troopers. (IANS)

An office memorandum from the Finance Ministry's Department of Expenditure said: "Recently, the Government of India has decided to disinvest Air India, and the process of disinvestment of Air India and Air India Express is ongoing."

"Air India has stopped extending credit facilities on account of purchase of air tickets. Therefore, all Ministries or Departments are directed to clear Air India's dues immediately." "Air tickets from Air India may be purchased in cash till further instructions."



In 2009, the Centre had mandated that Central government officers travel via Air India for all official purposes including availing of LTC. On Monday, conglomerate Tata Group entered into a share purchase agreement with the Central government for buying out the latter's stake in national carrier Air India, Air India Express, and AISATS.

Sports betting has become increasingly popular among the youth in recent times

Sports betting has been around for centuries for the audience to not only watch the sport but to get more deeply involved in the match. It is a fun and often profitable activity for the viewer to win some extra fortune or simply get some extra sweat while watching the game. At first glance, sports betting may look like it's pure luck, but when you indulge deeper into the activity you realize it is more of a calculative and research activity than just pure luck. We must note that yes, luck does play a certain role to some extend but a win is not completely dependent on luck, if you're putting your bets on a certain team you have to make sure to do some research about the players on the team, history of wins and losses of the team and compare the probability of winning and then place bets.

Even though sports betting has existed since the ancient era, it was not until recently that it became increasingly popular among the youth. This happened due to the legalization of the activity and the rise of online sports betting. The technological revolution has expanded the sports betting industry, offering the bettors new markets and ways to bet. The only major difference between online bookmarkers and traditional brick-and-mortar venues of sports betting is that now you can place bets online from your mobile devices, laptops, computers etc.
