BJP’s Andhra Pradesh unit, in order to show the popularity of Gujarat CM Narendra Modi, is collecting a registration fee of Rs 5 per person to attend a public meeting to be addressed by its election campaign committee chief (Modi)in Hyderabad on August 11.Interestingly,keeping in mind Modi’s following in the virtual world, the registration is available online and the party claims, about 40,000 people have already registered and the party hopes that it will go up to at least 70,000.The fund so collected is going for relief of Uttarakhand flood victims.
Now,that sounds like a bold step to check the ground reality of the magic of NaMo mantra floating in the virtual and media world . 🙂
NaMo Fans happy ?
Italian businessman Ottavio Quattrocchi, a suspect in the Bofors scam,that gave Congress real tough time for decades, has died of a heart attack in Milan.in 2011, CBI had dropped the cases against him declaring lack of evidence however the former CBI chief ,Joginder Singh,claimed the investigating body was in tremendous pressure from the government while probing the bofors scam. Quattrocchi allegedly acted as a middleman in the scam and his closeness to the Gandhi family and success in evading trial in India have long raised questions on whether he was shielded by the Congress.
Details on Ottavio Quattrocchi,bofors scam and Congress government’s alleged involvement in the scam.
While officially, he was no more threat to the Congress after CBI dropped the cases against him,still, the unofficial chance of knowing the exact truth of Bofors Scam seem to have been buried with the death of Quattrocchi.
In an interview to Reuters,Gujarat’s CM , Narendra Modi claimed he was innocent in the Gujarat riots.To add on he said while driving if a puppy comes under the wheel, it will be painful and that even he is a human being. If something bad happens anywhere, it is natural to be sad.
Congress and other parties were quick to pick up the analogy and hit out at him for using the puppy word in the context of the riots while BJP was busy defending the statement by Modi.
Chak De India promoted Hockey and it got dearer to Indian since then although it was an important sport 2 decades back.
Bhag Milkha Bhag is expected to promote athletics of the nation.Previously,Paan Singh Tomar had promoted the same.
Prior to that, Apne was all about Boxing and Bend it Like Beckham and Goal promoted football . There are many more movies which are a reason why the Indians are thinking beyond cricket.
But is bollywood’s impact limited to Sports ? 😉
As per an IBN NEWS article bollywood’s Dabang actor Salman Khan ‘communicated’ to an entertainment journalist(Soumyadipta Banerjee) to convince him to take down the blog post he had written in connection with Khan’s hit-and-run case.In the post he had mentioned about police constable Late Ravindra Patil describing how he absconded, under pressure,being a witness of the hit-and-run case against Salman Khan and how he died of TB and his last words.
The IBN NEWS article has links of the post written by the journalist which he has removed from his blog(but is available on the net) and also the post link on the journalist’s website where he apologizes to Salman Khan for posting the previous post on Ravindra Patil and declares he has deleted it from his blog.
Well, when it comes to Celebs, opinions differ.Some say the celeb should be spared and some are too strict wanting the celeb to be severely punished.After all, a coin has two sides. Reading the post on Ravindra Patil, I can conclude at least , in India , money matters over lives .
People , I would request you to read the article by Mr Banerjee which I read and then make an opinion,if at all you wish to. I am not for Salman Khan and not against him. I do not need to have an opinion about him. But I have an opinion about how my country,our country, treats celebs and commoners.I feel ashamed !
Ravindra Jadeja and Suresh Raina have apologized to the BCCI for their on-field spat during the ongoing tri-series match against the West Indies.A debate on the lack of harmony in the Indian dressing room has been buzzing around since this incident was captured on cameras.
Digvijaya Singh , senior leader of Congress,popular for his irrelevant political statement in the media , is back again.He claimed in an interview that Rajnath Singh the current President of the major opposition party,BJP, played a second fiddle to the then Party President , Nitin Gadkiri and then replaced him and now he is being the 2nd man to Modi and if BJP wins,he will replace Modi,as well.
Well, that is all an assumption from Mr.Singh . What about his aspirations ? After all, even he has been a politician since ages.Even he may be thinking of being an important man to his party, as second fiddle to the top-man of his party ! Who knows ? 😀
Union Finance Minister is asking people not to worry over rupee’s constant fall. With INR breaking its all time low every other day, the investors, both foreign and domestic are scared to put money in Indian markets.Someone can you please trust P Chidambaram Saab. 😉 All is Well.. All is Well !! 😀
