depend on actual seats they get, bjp can get 2/3 and NDA can get 10-15 conservative. all this may change depending on what schemes are on the offer and campaigning etc.
Depends on how many Peaceful weddings Stalin gets invited to between now and the elections. Seriously.

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

A Congi cretin who usually spews venom against Modi and in support of the Peacefuls in all debates said in Times Now yesterday "I want my Prime Minister to retaliate, not in a matter of weeks or days, but in hours. I want him to retaliate now!!!" Combine that with a tweet of Gaurav Pradhan over a we...

His advisors, as well as his foreign consultants, would not let him peak so early and empty both barrels at this stage. Depends on whether they are playing like the Pakistani opening line-up in a world cup match against India - hit hard and try to finish the game early. They usually do, but not the...

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

I am aware of all that but I think it would have been much easier for UPA to switch to Eurofighter specially after it had made a fresh offer 20% lower prices. It would have been hard for IAF to say no since they had rated Eurofighter equally good and now it was available at 20% cheaper price. IFF U...

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

Jack, the Chief Twit is a bold genius, I tell ya. Within 10 minutes of meeting RaGa, he made a global announcement that fake news was a huge threat that needs to be fought. Who in India has that kind of courage? Also, realizing that RaGa is a Dattatreya Kaul Janeudhari Brahmin worshipping Shiva in d...

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

I don't think Pappu is lobbying for any other US or other defense firm as Dorkie was speculating and Nirmala Seetharaman seemed to concur. This does not sound credible. Of the two planes shortlisted among the half dozen competitors, Eurofighter was one of them. So if they wanted Eurofighter they co...

"The Hindu" N. Ram's role here is quite telling. I assume some data miner told RaGa about The Hindu's role in making Bofors stick to his dad. So, "The Hindu" may have been chosen as the vehicle to carry the Rafale scam to the people because of this past association - even though that was all due to ...

But one thing troubles me is that according to Minhaz Merchant's following article, roughly 54% believe there is Rafale 'corruption'.

All we know is that India simply folded up when 11/08 happened. So What BS about Surgical strikes during ...

All the government has done is reduce the tax burden by 12.5k per year, yes you read that right. Because 2.5-5 lac bracket was taxed at 5%, so eliminating that bracket has saved the tax payer a whopping 12.5k a year! And that, my friend, is a joke. Saar, please see this thread.

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

As far as I am concerned, this election will be a clear message to politicians in terms of whether this electorate is capable of rewarding good work or not. If NaMo wins again, the message of "shape up or sit down" will be taken seriously by all those poltoos and other crooks who think that everyth...

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

In the end it all boils down to whether the majority of the voters have liked what Modi has done so far or not. Again, IMHO, they would be more inclined to vote for him today than they did in 2014 because he was then 'unproven' and now he has shown that if anything he has the best interests of the ...

Looks like the general consensus is that Pappu's more endowed slaves in collusion with perhaps some BJP insider traitors like Arun Shourie, Yashwant Sinha etc got hold of some big bang announcement in the upcoming budget, and stole BJP's thunder by this announcement. Maybe ModiJi was also thinking ...

Quite an explosive revelation by SuSwa. If true, this should ring alarm bells everywhere, but I am sure the Congoons and their paid media will either bury it or play the victim.

And equally importantly, unlike NDA-1 he is not repeating the mistake of leaving the treasury full. Massive use of goremint funds for welfare schemes. By mistake even if a non-NDA goremint comes in, they won't have anything to "eat". THAT is the saving grace in all this. He needs to go for broke in...

Picture does not look very good. All the things we praise Modi for may not matter if good jobs cannot be promised/delivered. Strange, people don't seem to care about whether they have electricity, toilets, gas stoves, bank accounts, healthcare etc. In other words, the basic necessities that provide...

They are trying to hit two birds in one stone: 1. Money has changed hands from EADS to Famiglia to move this deal to Eurofighter. Famiglia might be under pressure to either consummate the deal or return the money. So, it has to be scuttled. The more this does not work, the more desperate they are ge...

Does anyone understand the reason Employment Statistics from GoI stopped in 2016? They seem to have been published annually till 2016.

This is bolstering the Congi case that there is massive unemployment.
