After JD(U) its Shiv Sena which wants BJP to declare the NDA candidate for Prime Minister’s job ! While Sena has no complains with Modi and 2002 riots where they say that none could avoid those riots , it wants Sushma Swaraj to be the candidate and not Narendra Modi (sounds like the present Sena supremo is in a dilemma) !! 😉
All in all, looks like BJP is in a bigger fix! Nitish Kumar, the Bihar CM wants a secular candidate (without naming himself 😀 )and prefers supporting L.K.Advani as the candidate (whose involvement in Ayodhya Movement has been pardoned by Nitish, I suppose 🙂 ) while Sena declared its choice already.
Lets see if the NaMo mantra will cross the major barriers of objecting allies or not !! 🙂
Bengal’s politics of violence reached the national capital on Tuesday as Students Federation of India(SFI) activists manhandled State Finance Minster Amit Mitra outside the Planning Commission raising slogans against the Mamata Banerjee. The SFI protest was against the death of a SFI cadre,Sudipto Gupta, in police custody . Angry Mamata Banerjee expressed her shock and her worry about how even she could have suffered.She also termed the protesters as hooligans and reminded she could bring 10 lakh people to Delhi who are behind her !! Angry didi blamed the protesters of willingly stopping Bengal from growing and cancelled her pre-scheduled meeting with the PM !!
Meanwhile, TMC and the Left workers had their share of arm twisting with eachother in Bengal till their respective leaders asked them to calm down. TMC has declared a protest march wearing black bands on the streets condemning attack on their leaders.
Union Minister and NCP supremo Sharad Pawar on Monday apologized for his nephew and Deputy CM of Maharashtra, Ajit Pawar’s ‘urine’ remarks that ridiculed the hunger-strike by a drought-affected farmer of the state.In a rally he said where will he give water from when there is no water in the dam . Should he urinate in the dam ? And as expected, the opposition has demanded his resignation !!
This is not the first time uncle Sharad has come to the rescue of Ajit !! Well, I pray we all get a loving uncle like Sharad ji !! 😀
BJP leader Lal Krishna Advani, yesterday,asked partymen not to be apologetic for the Ayodhya movement and instead take pride in it.It is a well known fact that BJP got a great political exposure only after the unfortunate Babri Masjid demolition and they got to power and formed a government at the Centre because of the issue and even lost it when they did not fulfill their commitment of constructing a Ram Temple on the disputed land of Ayodhya after coming to power. Riots allover India and neighbouring countries broke out taking hundreds and thousands of lives of hindus and muslims, thereafter.Followed was a series of bomb blasts in 1993 in Mumbai in retaliation to the Mosque demolition. Yet Advani ji takes pride on the movement !! Great !!
Well,should his partymen also be proud of his statement made on Jinnah that he was secular, while, on his visit to Pakistan ? The statement had created buzz all around and had left him speechless in front of the national media and his party. 😉
