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

the best thing about modi shah is, how they not just counter the moves but also shape the options for the opponent. pakis have to eat this. they don't have wherewithal to respond in same manner using PAF. and if they resort to more terrorist attacks, we have just set a precedence for our response to...

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

TTVD only game is to play spoilsport and retain some followership and eventually find a small space where he can lord over. I suspect that sasi is going to be in jail for a longer time. some new FERA cases have also been slapped. He has not managed to pull anymore than who he pulled already long tim...

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

i have to say EPS has shown what a fine strategist he is. held cards close to chest. negated moves from TTV and Stalin. Used anti-bjp elements in own party to negotiate hard bargain with bjp. gave more concessions to PMK in exchange for mid terms gain in PMK strong areas - which he needs to keep the...

bjp to contest 5 in trichy, KK, nellai, thiruppur and kovai. KK, thiruppur and cbe - they start strong. it's theirs to lose. small parties like PT, IJK, kongu party, arjun sampath etc..are all given 1 seat each in their traditional strongholds and out of 8, they can get 3/4 conservatively. ADMK, PMK...

As you know, things are in flux now, with established leaders with proven vote bank gone. some changes in voter groups - tamil nationalists / exceptionalists who are getting coopted into modi hate by dravidian and minority dominated media...

hectic negotiations and overt and covert moves going on to bring bjp, admk and pmk to an alliance. west TN would go for admk+bjp combo. 5 seats possible. dharmapuri also in play, if pmk is in alliance, Vanniyar+Gounders will make majority. south TN will have TTV Dinakaran playing spoilsport, but can...

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

there were some very low level cross border raids..like the one where a few of our soldiers in patrol were ambushed and beheaded and we killed a few in return.

This is equated to the large scale, multiple objective, multiple team coordinated attack like the surgical strike.

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

until we bring in online voting, or at least early voting and postal votes etc - the middle class won't vote. the majority voters in any booth are the ones who can be rounded up and dropped at booth en masse, who can stand in line in heat and dust for a few hours just for voting. these are usually t...

Why hasn't Shatru Singha been expelled from the party? He repeatedly sides with anti BJP forces and criticises the PM and government. Some criticism, even openly, is fine - but to do it every other month over a period of 2-3 years? diminishing returns. in politics, ignoring somebody is a strategy t...

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

the only hope is a thrashing of congress, revolt in congress, removal of family and a revival of a proper center left party on economic issues, and center right on national security that brings us to a two party system that competes on growth, development etc..
