6:35 pm
might appear to be all caught and so the lynchings the culprit that should movement a dissident it nobody really prepared for that the seriousness of the act so that next 5 years through a lot of unexpected things are likely to happen that said what is expected is an assault on us no loss that is that religion based on the laws but i believe the b.g. is long standing problems of implementing a uniform civil court a common law for all citizens the good making moves closer to that other vice. vs going to see an assault on again on the 70 special category status of the states . state of kashmir. so these are some of the things that i expected but again like i said it's left to the imagination they can do likely now in terms of results that the b.g.p. achieved over was an overwhelming majority the opposition took a massive battering does india have
6:36 pm
a credible opposition of the moment. so the congress. in right now is quite in a bad state its president wants to quit its senior leadership is not allowing him to quit busted in once to bring in a non-family member lead the party by his his leaders his closest does want him to continue one his family to be in control of the congress so a lot of the people of this country who are not big fans of not into the how to develop our marketing that the promising pick of the budget but you distribution socketed the populace can argue that. the regional players who look hoping to do that the i found themselves fighting to survive in the next 5 years some of them will struggle to hold on to their state governments but if you want but you should appreciate what was used to not do is that the b.g.p. has significantly increased which i do is talk talk it could increase as what share
6:37 pm
of the country is 37 per cent of the country work for them to be the which means that $60.00 to $60.00 plus of the electorate has still not working some sort of 50 people 50 said i would want a mentor between absolute terms so there is potential for this electorate 60 percent of the electorate can see that it's still mark board walk into them or the negative impact or be the opposition's will but that would be the opposition it's a very interesting times ahead sebastian joining us from delhi thank you very much for that thank you. to thailand next been negotiations continue over who will form the next government this off the disputed election in march gave no side a majority even so parliament has begun its walk and among the new m.p.'s officially sworn in this time around is the country's 1st transgender m.p. tom but in so how has it turned out and prefers to use the phone all day instead of being referred to as he or she a renowned film maker they election marks

6:39 pm
recognised and if we don't have thailand as a complicated relationship with gender identity transgender men and women answer them to change their own identity cards while same sex marriage in the dumps in a not makes it now an m.p. turn were not only wants change attitudes they want to change legislation and it's no easy feat alongside the parliamentary g.t.s. turn when shed use paint with meetings in guest appearances at every event they greeted by fans and well wishes. the elections in a defined time when status is an icon to antidiscrimination and to bits. left b.n. and when i made my victory speech there were l g b t people in the crowd one came up to me and hugged me. and said i hope you can make everyone equal that really touched me the permitted l g b t people don't ask for much just equality we just want the same rights as you out of the. 10 wins journey to palm it hasn't been easy
6:40 pm

6:41 pm
but that can be me as they are no one having problems finding stuff you to japan's aging population should they reduce that opening oz or could technology provide a solution. tokyo a city that never sleeps at least when it comes to convenience stores the lights are always on at these nonstop shops known as can be. at night you buy these hot snacks i eat them on my way back home and then i can go straight to bed when i get there makes life easy. but convenient more than just his food more than 50000 around the country sell everything from concert tickets to toilet paper to big franchises family mart 711 and lorson are an integral part of fast paced japan. but it's convenience at a cost that stores search for stuff to work long hours at low pay is it time for
6:42 pm
the around the clock shopping to stop. at least i get on i think it's strange that convenience stores want to operate all hours or even though they don't have enough stuff. and it's not just this area it's the same all over the city. i don't think there's a need to keep them open all the time and it's going to challenge. the stores want to close the shed and be happier if they were open but it just means i'd have to walk a little further to find one if they are close that would be a problem. but there is one answer to labor shortages do away with stuff altogether some change introducing facial recognition and self check outs of this store's. technology to keep the convenience going 247. that's over now to check out the other stories i did. on facebook and twitter.
