Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 3 (Oct 2018 - )

Muns the small temples are intact. Only the concrete jungle has been removed. The gyanvapi mosque I think is in the center of the project. I hope they do something similar with the other ghats and the Mathura temple as well.

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 3 (Oct 2018 - )

Have you guys seen the Kashi Viswanath Corridor project in Kashi? I just rechecked the videos. If I am not mistaken the project has basically cleared and surrounded the original temple i.e. the Gyanvapi mosque from all sides. So that disputed site except the mosque is now gone.

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 3 (Oct 2018 - )

Map looks similar to what Rajiv Gandhi won in 1984. AP and KL were the outliers even then. Only difference is this time you have Nagaland instead of WB then as outliers. Will we see a similar result?

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 3 (Oct 2018 - )

C-system is worried that the proof is too strongly in favor of a temple at RJB. If SC passes judgement in favor of RJB it will set legal precedent for other similar destroyed temples. Hence, the push for mediation. The Hindu side should just say we tried and failed and ask SC to pass judgement. Or e...

Even if the volume is low it adds up to the pressure. Also Pak imports substantial cotton which is required for their textile industry which is their main export.

Its the opposite. Prices have risen in Pak due to traders from India not supplying. It is a propaganda.

Just like Trudeau was humiliated and then Modi hugged him, MBS was humiliated and asked to go back to Saudi and come to India from there not from Pak. Message sent, next should be to observe what they do. The middle east oil economies will start to totter once electric vehicles become widespread. Me...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 3 (Oct 2018 - )

In KL they are predicting 20% for NDA. There is show meltdown of the Left. NDA is 15% 2014, 17% 2017 to 20% now. A few more cycles of elections and a few more goof-ups like Sabarimala it will take. That is what happened in WB where they are now predicting 8% for the Left (at their peak it was more t...

If they get alliances in MH, JH and TN that number should go up by 40-50 seats even with their current estimates.

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 3 (Oct 2018 - )

VDPassociaes. NDA total 242. They were conservative with the seats. Even with their vote shares numbers should be 10-15 seats more. So it is now firming up to 250-260 seats. Only places where some anti-incumbency is JH (surprising given Raghubar Das has been performing well) and surprisingly CG (vot...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 3 (Oct 2018 - )

It is because BJP is closing in on TMC very fast in WB with the collapse of INC and Left. Latest polls suggest that 7-8% vote change may turn the elections. Everyone wants to be PM because the regional leaders will need a narrative to take on Modi and BJP in their states where they are strong. Other...
