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

Discontent in the population which is also getting reflected in the TMC as leaders have started jumping parties. Why should a sitting TMC MP join BJP if things were easy for Mamata? Why block BJP's rathyatra if you are so sure. Plus ground report from minor Bengali media and discussions with relativ...

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

It seems that KCR, Jagan, Pattnaik did not attend the opposition meet in Kolkata. They are likely to keep their options open. Report leaking from WB suggests that discontent is brewing which may get reflected in the elections. Sachin, don't know but a few of their cronies have been in the wilderness...

Looks like it is going to be a low key campaign in 2019. Mostly Modi rallies and getting the vote out. Not much media blitz.

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

BJP has traditionally won between 100-110 seats in Kar at its best. So this result was on par with a few seats lost here and there. BJP is weak in south Kar. The mandate was in favor of BJP like last time when BSY was CM with help of allies. It is perfectly alright for BJP to try to form govt in Kar...

I don't think it is a good idea to topple the Kar govt before 2019 LS. Let it totter for some more time.

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

Also Shivpal Yadav may contest. Just 2-3% of the 9% Yadav vote and 3-4% of the Dalit 20% vote may do the trick. I hear that Akhilesh does not have full control of Yadav votes like Mulayam and Mayawati core vote is Jatav while the BJP is trying to woo non-Jatav dalits. May not be a simple addition of...

India TV- CNX opinion poll. Who will be PM? Modi at 41%, RG at 23%, rest much lower. Voters issue - Modi's work at No 1, corruption not a major issue for most people. Sea change from 2014 when corruption was a major issue.

India TV-CNX opinion poll out. BJP/NDA in similar situation as before 2014. 245 seats NDA. Short of clear majority. Will need some good slog overs.

So the CJI and justice Lalit himself had no idea that justice Lalit had a conflict of interest when he was appointed to the bench. It is a delaying tactics. I think the muslim side is not sure of the case.

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

Going back to 1951 for NRC cut-off date is not a good idea for two reasons 1) there was no Bdesh before 1971 and this makes deportation more complicated and 2) a lot of muslims migrated to Pak/east Pak between 1951-1971 and this will open an avenue for them to come back to India by C-system.

RJD and AIADMK are going to vote against quota bill. Meanwhile Naveen has said he will not go with MGB. I think he is keeping options open. SO is Modi although odisha may be ripe for change.

LS passes quota bill. If it passes RS, C-system attempts to stoke caste issues before elections is dead.

Also this reservation is not solely for upper castes e.g. Jats are general category in HY, Reddys are general category in TG/AP, etc. All of them will now get reservations.

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

Primus, it is not clear. It says general category which could include other religions as some news channels are claiming. Both OBC and this reservation are grey areas as far as religion is concerned. The constitution does not support religion based reservation. However, like the SC reservations whic...

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

That is their problem if they want to stay hanging for generations. But at least in the northern part of the country this is not a huge problem. But the original intention of reservations was to help deprived classes among H/S/B/J not religion based reservations. They have pushed religion based rese...

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

Next step should be to make the OBC reservations only for H/S/B/J as neither Islam nor Christianity has caste system. You can avail reservation if you re-convert.
