President Xi Jinping put China’s wealthiest citizens on notice, offering an outline for “common prosperity” that includes income regulation and redistribution.
Since Xi took office in 2012, the ruling party has made it a priority to end poverty and build a moderately prosperous society, goals that the party sees as central to promoting well-being and strengthening its governance.
Income inequality in the country is wide – the richest 20% earn more than 10 times poorest 20% -- and hasn’t budged since 2015. Beijing has undertaken massive efforts to reduce poverty, especially in rural areas.
A Delhi court discharged Congress leader Shashi Tharoor from all charges, including abetment to suicide, in connection with the death of his wife SunandaPushkar in January 2014.
