After a criminal case was registered against Imran Masood,Congress’ Saharanpur candidate,and he was arrested for his hate speech against Modi,Rahul Gandhi’s Saharanpur rally was cancelled. Imran Masood has stated he would chop Modi into pieces and that Gujarat has only 4 percent Muslims but Uttar Pradesh there are 42 percent Muslims. When questioned,Imran said all he meant was he would teach Modi a lesson and that he would say sorry only after Modi says so for 2002 riots in Gujarat.The Congress party seemed sidelining itself from Masood’s controversial remark to the extent that Rahul Gandhi who was scheduled to address a rally in the area cancelled his visit.
Who knows,the party cadres might be feeling at ease after Rahul cancelling his visit. After all, its a tough ask to gather crowd for Rahul.
Addressing one of his rallies,Modi attacked Arvind Kejriwal directly by calling him a Pakistani Agent. He said India had three AK’s emerging as Pakistani commanders on Indian side – First,AK47 which was used by Pakistan to bleed India.Second,AK Antony,the Union Defence Minister,who had stated in the Parliament that people who beheaded Indian soldiers were wearing the dress of Pakistan army, while army said Pakistanis had come.Last July,Pakistani army had intruded in the Indian side and beheaded two Indian soldiers. The third,Modi mentioned,was AK49 which has launched a new party recently. This was a mock at Arvind Kejriwal’s 49 day old govt in Delhi.
AAP has emerged as a strong vote-cutter for BJP in 2014 which was quite visible in Delhi polls where BJP could not make its Govt despite Congress losing real bad.
Nandan Nilekani , the former UIDAI chief and co-founder of Infosys, who has recently joined Congress,disclosed details of his assets while filing his nomination for Lok Sabha.
He recalled when he co-founded Infosys, he had Rs 200 in his pocket and today he has assets worth Rs 7,700 crores !!
But one thing that might be keeping politicians baffled is, if he has already made so much money legitimately, why is he required to join politics ? 😀
After Manish Tewari declared himself unfit and decided not to fight polls from Ludhiana,its the Union Finance Minister,P Chidambaram who is not going to fight elections from Sivaganga, Tamil Nadu from where he was elected an MP in 2004 and 2009 and instead his son Kirti Chidambaram will replace him.
Is this just co-incidence or fear of loss ? 😉
India TV chairman , Rajat Sharma, responded strongly after Arvind Kejriwal alleged most of the media was “sold” and such media people would be jailed if AAP comes to power, at a fundraising dinner with businessmen in Nagpur. In his show ‘Aaj ki Baat’ he lashed out at Arvind Kejriwal accusing him of keeping double standards. This happened after the AAP party in its press conference named India Tv as one of the sold media and then denied stating they wanted to mean some other news channel.
After Arvind Kejriwal made a statement on BJP PM candidate, Narendra Modi, that he either kills or buys his opponents ,the BJP has complained about the same remark to the Election Commission.
Its no secret that for the 2014 General Elections , Kejriwal has defeated all other opponents of Modi to stand out as the biggest hurdle in between Modi and the PM’s chair. Following Kejriwal’s claim on Modi-killing Kejriwal is not possible for Modi.What next ?? Second Option ? 😀
