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’?
TH Mustafa, senior Congress leader from Kerela has been suspended for calling Rahul Gandhi a ‘joker’ and blaming him for Congress’ defeat.
