    President Donald Trump's pick to replace Brett Kavanaugh on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals is expected to face tough questioning from Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday over what they say is a career of advocating an expansive view of presidential power and working on the widespread rollback of regulations.

Both served on Clinton’s first presidential bid in...

    New Delhi, Dec. 23: Former Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao, who died this afternoon, has carried one of India’s best kept military secrets to the grave.

It was Rao’s groundwork that was subsequently used by the BJP-led government of Vajpayee to push through a nuclear weaponisation programme in May 1998. In different interviews and in accounts by strategic experts, Rao...
