Bilawal Bhutto, the 26 year old son of Benazir Bhutto and chairperson of Pakistan People’s Party has been making to the news by giving irresponsible statements in his political rallies. He has been repeating that if voted to power he would take back every inch of Kashmir from India. Both the BJP and Congress has declared that Bilawal Bhutto is politically immature hence his comments should not be taken seriously.
BJP is all set to make govt in Haryana and has become the largest party in Maharashtra with 100 plus seats and would need the assistance of its recently divorced ally Shiv Sena to form the govt.
Is it still the Modi wave making winning a habit for BJP or is it Amit Shah who be given the credit too ?
The Modi wave which created history of one party rule in India after 3 decades is put on test in Haryana and Maharashtra assembly polls, starting today. PM Modi himself addressed rallies in Haryana and Maharashtra to attract voters for state elections.
Will the Chautalas and Hoodas be able to save their voters from the hawk-eyed Modi is a question which is going to be answered soon.
In Maharashtra, all the major parties are fighting on their own after the alliance between NCP & Congress and BJP & Shiv Sena collapsed in the recent past. MNS is also expected to put a strong contest and cut marathi manus votes. And to add to the worries of the self-proclaimed secular parties looking to attract Muslim votes, there is MIM which has launched itself in Maharashtra this time. With their successful and proven pro-Muslim vote attracting strategies amalgamated with hate-speeches, they may hurt the vote-bank of parties like NCP, Congress and MNS.
PM Modi marked Gandhi Jayanti by appealing to the nation to make ‘India Clean’. He and his ministers took the broom in their hands to launch the ‘ Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’. PM Modi in his speech said it was Gandhi ji’s dream to see ‘ clean India’ .
After the BJP demanded 135 seats in upcoming Maharashtra assembly elections and stated it will form its govt, Shiv Sena too made its stand clear on Uddhav Thackeray, the Sena chief, as the only Chief Ministerial candidate regardless of poll results. This has brought the alliance to a no-solution zone for now.
Big Brother BJP would surely hate to share the cherry on the cake if at all the Sena-BJP alliance remains intact and ends up winning in Maharashtra.
With Yogendra Yadav indicating big rifts due to differences in opinions within the AAP, Arvind Kejriwal, the supremo, has finally started the mending work. AAP has decided to reject all resignations making an approach to re-unite the shattered team post 2014 General Election results.
Just before the national elections, known faces were seen joining the party to try their luck in politics but the Modi wave proved so disastrous for AAP that they stood clueless,so far, where to start from. Names like Shazia Ilmi, Anajali Damania, Captain Gopinath and now Yogendra Yadav quitting the party gives a negative impression to the voters about their unity and management as a political entity.
Isn’t it time, Mr Kejriwal start re-arranging his shattered and lost troop rather attacking the heavily fueled BJP army ?
Yet another brutal incident of gang-rape and murder of two dalit sisters in Uttar Pradesh is making to the ‘Breaking News’. The bodies of the girls were found hanging on a tree. The state Govt put on question, got agitated on media while the opposition parties are trying to make most out of the gruesome incident by visiting victims’ family, offering condolences,announcing compensations and demanding CBI probe. Some are even taking the credit of CBI probe because of their intervention.
While Akhilesh Yadav, CM of UP was seen counter-questioning the media for hyping the news,Rahul Gandhi made sure to drive media attention by paying visit to victims’ family. Soon, SP’s local MP, Dharmendra Yadav, followed and with compensation. BSP supremo,Mayawati too included her name in the visitors list and offered compensation to the family while accusing, yet again, the state govt for its ‘jungle raj’.
Reminds of SP supremo-Malayam Singh Yadav’s controversial remark on rapes where he said ‘boys make mistakes.Shouldn’t be hung.’ for rapists. In a state ruled by party of eminent thinkers and politicians like Mulayam Singh, is rape and murder ‘that big a deal’?
