    (A) In contrast to last year, the initial outlook for the southwest monsoon looks hardly promising.
    (B) The forecast probability of both deficient and below-normal categories is double the climatological probability, which is based on how the monsoon fared in previous years.
    (C) For the June-September season, both the deficient (less than 90 per cent of long-period average, or LPA) and below-normal (between 90 and 96 per cent of the long-period average) categories have a nearly equal probability of 33 and 35 per cent respectively.
    (D) According to the first-stage forecast issued by the India Meteorological Department, the southwest monsoon seasonal rainfall is likely to be 93 per cent of the long-period average with a margin of error of 5 per cent.
    (E) However, the initial forecast made in April cannot be the basis for arriving at any firm conclusions; at best, it may serve as a pointer.

    (A) A true reflection on the state of neglect faced by the rubber farmers is the fact that this apex body that controls the fortunes of this once robust sector has not been reconstituted even 14 months after the 28-member board’s term expired on February 28, 2014.
    (B) The Centre will do well to announce a national rubber policy that complements the prime minister’s Make in India policy.
    (C) If China, the largest exporter of rubber products to India, is fast becoming self-sufficient, no one can pretend that it has not been at India’s cost.

    ((A) Finally, better sense seems to have dawned on both the Central government and the Andhra Pradesh government as there is an apparent re-thinks on land acquisition.
    (B) Prime Minister Narendra Modi admitted as much when he addressed the nation in Mann ki Baat on Sunday: “There are many rumors being spread about the Land Acquisition Bill. Farmers have been scared. We do not want that. We had issued an ordinance; I’ve decided that it comes to an end tomorrow. We are ready to amend the Land Acquisition Bill to benefit farmers, who have been misinformed, leading to fear in their minds.”
    (C) While the Union government’s hand has been partly forced due to a technicality of parliamentary procedure, it is equally true that the groundswell of opposition had reached a point where it could not be ignored.

    ((A) The Union government did not crown itself with glory when it said that political parties should not be brought under the purview of the Right to Information (RTI) Act.
    (B) It merely echoed the opinion of the parties when it briefed the Supreme Court on the matter.
    (C) This was in keeping with the spirit of the RTI because, although parties were not established under an Act, they were beneficiaries of largesse from the government in terms of land, water and other benefits.
    (D) Two years ago, the Central Information Commission had unanimously decided that the Act was applicable to political parties.
    (E) Political parties, cutting across ideological and regional divides, have shown such unity of purpose only on legislators’ salary and perks.
