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

How much effect this trade ban is having is hard to tell. The trade across LOC has apparently not been banned. Also the volume imported from Pakistan through Wagah/Atari border was quite low, about $300 mil.

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

Extending the same argument by AJAZ ASHRAF, Does that mean Muslims do not want to defend the nation hence not a single Muslim name in the list of martyr soldiers. Does the niggling suspicion in the mind of many people that Muslims have a skewed soft corner for Pakistan and hence aren't keen to join...

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

Request for Help: The constant barrage of news as to how the BJP and Hindu Nationalists have increased attacks on minorities is always the underlying anti-NDA story. However, can someone please provide data from the NCRB (National Crime Records Bureau) and CBI about communal violence? In fact, from...

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

Of all the various type possible trading agreements between two WTO members such as free trade agreement, trading blocks, preferential treatment (GSP, GSP+), and MFN, MFN is the least desirable. When two WTO members trade, MFN status automatically kicks in. But it means absolutely nothing as nations...

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

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 could have chosen it back then itself. In fact the "defense expert" @Iyervval had written a long article criticizing the UPA govt. for pickin...

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. Nirmala Seetharaman as well as Jaitley have hinted in parliament to RaGa's face that he is doing this at the behest of EADS (Eurofighter). Christian Michel was ...

I cannot believe that traitor b!tch Kavita Krishnan and other elite femi Nazis and BJP haters have twisted BJP MLA Sadhna's statements against Mayawathi and made a mountain out of a mole. I mean I don't understand what was so offensive at what Sadhna said? She siad, Mayawathi is a disgrace because ...

Also about 10% reservation for Economically weaker sections was on the congress manifesto for many elections.
PVNR did it in 1991 but was shot down by the SC.

Simple rule.

If Haldiram opposes something, 9 times out of 10, it is good for Indians and Hindus.

Use that & simplify decisions.

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

All this suggestions of banning or targetting TV channels is bad idea. It will lead to a culture of vendetta banning/targeting every time the govt. changes and in democracies govt. does change after 1 term or 2 term.

I think tribals are allowed to avail SC quota benefits irrespective of their religion.

Tribals fall under ST (scheduled tribe).. when you convert...

2019 is going to be a BIG loss for Modi & company. Today, Aaj tak reported announcement of SP and BSP alliance on Mayawati birthday as per it's sources. If this happens , BJP will struggle to get even 20 seats. Forward castes will either abstain , choose NOTA or many will go with thug bandhan. BJP ...

If SP/BSP/Congress arithmetic works like it did the bypolls of Gorakhpur, Phulpur, and Kairana then BJP will find it hard pressed to win more than 25 seats instead of the 62 listed.

Corporate India has always backed Cong. They have been in power for close to 60 years. Like any empire/dynasty they will have their people in every nook and corner of the country.

The population control bus left a long time ago. I would fault Nehru and all the successive govts. for not enforcing castration.

There is such a narrow margin of loss in RJ and MP for the BJP that one wonders what if? If you go to the EC site, the NOTA numbers are very significant.

To be fair to them, a lot of people supported DeMo because they thought eventually, there will be respite. But none came. Jaitley made a mockery of tax payers. Modi is doing what Vajpayee did - handing over overflowing GoI coffers to Congis to loot for 10 years. They should have crashed tax rates e...

Bigger question is, what did MP/CG voters see in Congress to vote for it? Is Rahul Baba's stupidity finally appealing to masses? Good question, this was more a vote against BJP than pro Congress. This trend has been going on for sometime (BJP losing Karnataka and 17 out of last 19 by polls) will co...
