The good thing with modi shah is they learn and adapt quickly. And they fight and give it their all. The supporters need to do that instead of moping around or engaging in told you so point scoring.

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

have to check vote tallies as well, not just seats. vote tallies matter more for LS calculations due to makeup of electorate. overall, this is disappointing for sure, but not a drubbing. vote percentages are neck to neck as well. and more annoying than the results are the amount of folks pushing the...

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

Muns- the modi operandi has been to use other ministers until the point where Modi has to speak during campaign trail. His response depends on the traction of issue and timing in campaign calendar. Outside of the ‘never modi’ camp - rafale has no traction. The congress strategy of finding something ...

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

can't go against SC judgment without having a viable alternative.

if viable alternative is state ordinance, a la JK in TN..then it needs political strategizing ..can't open mouth just like that..

Re: Nukkad

social and cultural nukkad stuff is subsumed into political thread...

what to do..some thread discipline on behalf of poster is needed.

if we get a lot of traffic and posts, we can look to enforce discipline, but at this low volume it does not make sense.

MGB is not that easy for opposition. Seat sharing is going to create issues. Leader may give up some constituency to ally but the local guy can stand independent and split votes.

GST council runs GST decisions. Not Modi.

BJP is handling petrol issue as it should be handled.

no reason to waste revenues now and make a hole in the budget.

rupee and oil are going to be under pressure ...

the only backstop is at around $80 barrel, US fracking becomes profitable and that supply will dampen the prices.

IMO the sexual harassment thing cuts both ways. A man can be wrongly accused and lose a lot ....and we are also seeing how much harassment takes place and is suppressed. The key is proper investigation and not quickly falling back to practiced arguments based on ideological positions.
