Listing excerpts of economic data from the back series information released by the National Statistical Commission on Friday, Jaitley said the GDP growth clocked under the UPA was because of global trends and owed nothing to the UPA's efforts.

Colossal damage to tourism and plantation sector
Thiruvananthapuram/Kochi, Aug 13 (Agencies): Fresh rains lashed several parts of Kerala on Monday as the state continued to reel under the impact of unprecedented floods, even as the weatherman issued a warning cautioning fishermen against venturing into the sea, officials said. Some respite appeared on the horizon for the worst-hit Idduki hill district where the water in the Idukki dam receded to 2,397.58 ft, alleviating concerns about floods in fresh downstream areas, particularly in Ernakulam district.

The weatherman has issued a fresh warning asking fishermen not to venture into the sea, saying the coasts of Kerala and La...
