Well, sounds like a fairy tale.As if Rahul Gandhi does not know that if, at all, UPA gets a third chance to serve the nation, it would surely be his last opportunity to take the driving seat and probably make things happen for Congress. In the opposition,the Cold War between Bihar’s CM, Nitish Kumar, and Gujarat’s CM, Narendra Modi, may take a bigger shape if Modi is selected as the prime ministerial candidate for NDA.
Congress indicates , Manmohan may serve third term if UPA wins , while Rahul is not being kept totally away from the gossip on the topic.On the other side, BJP is also yet to clear its stands on whether Modi is the prime ministerial candidate for NDA or not. To add on, Mulayam Singh’s re-indication of formation of a Third-Front by the year end, is adding on to the confusion.
It all looked like,Rahul Vs Modi,till 2012 but now things are getting blur. No matter what the combination may come out as, one thing is assured,with Modi proving to be the most suitable Prime Ministerial candidate amongst any names we take throughout the country , it would never be easy for Rahul Gandhi to get the seat without proving his worth,ever.
Ambani brothers on Tuesday struck a Rs 1,200-crore deal wherein Mukesh will use his younger brother Anil’s optic fibre network for launch of his telecom venture. This is for the first time since they split the Ambani empire into two, that the brothers have struck a firm deal between themselves indicating normalcy in their relations.
Looks like fasts against governments do not bother Indians !! So far, all fasts,in the recent past have failed and Kejriwal, the activist turned politician who is also diabetic, has lost 7 kgs in 11 days indicating even this fast would fail. Arvind Kejriwal is on a fast against inflated water and electricity bills in Delhi. While the party claims there have been lakhs of people signing the ‘ bijli-paani satyagrah ‘pledge,it looks like nothing would actually change.Kejriwal has pledged people not to pay their power bills(and everyone else would pay the bills except for him, I suppose).With the summers knocking the door who would risk a permanent power and water cut? The Delhi government inspired by its counterpart at the Centre (after all they are the same political party) and the Prime Minister , prefers remaining deaf ears while Kejriwal’s detoriating health may soon put him off the fast .
Meanwhile,the Chief Minister,Sheila Dikshit had her birthday celebrated by party members on 31st March and was seen enjoying a chocolate cake on the occasion ! 😉
31st March 2013 was Delhi CM,Sheila Dikshit’s 75th Birthday and while the party workers celebrated her birthday , the one who may have ordered the cake was unsure of her age and hence a small goof up !! Small ??
After bollywood star , Sanjay Dutt has been sentenced to serve another 3 and 1/2 years in Illegal Arms Case verdict, there has been loads of politics and drama . Actor,Salman Khan, who is close to Sanjay Dutt reportedly visited him first after returning from the US and meanwhile , while addressing the media, Sanjay Dutt aka Sanju Baba literally started crying and then hid his face on his sister’s shoulders.While many claim this was a sympathy stunt,a few are taken a back and somehow do not want Sanju Baba to go to jail and be pardoned. The actor has declared he is ready to serve the jail and requested the media to leave him alone with his family and friends till he surrenders.
Well, even Salman Khan has cases of hunting down blackbuck in Rajasthan and hit-and-run case(2002) on his name. As both these actors have dared the law of the land with their deeds , they may have many common things to talk about ! May be !! 🙂
Srinivasan,the President of BCCI in an interview hinted he saved MS Dhoni from being axed when the selectors were wanting so.Indirectly, he mentioned that as the president of BCCI he has the right to take the last call. 🙂 (thats the reason Dhoni is still the captain 😉 )
The Pakistani army together with militant groups, had infiltrated the Indian side of LOC (areas of Jammu and Kashmir controlled by India) and captured strategic locations of the area including Kargil. Indian forces had to face many casualties yet Kargil was won back by India and due to International political pressure , Pakistani troops were forced to leave other areas they had entered,as well!
Even Pakistan lost many military lives and more importantly had to face world criticisms at all levels.General Musharraf is considered the mastermind of the Kargil Operation.India and Pakistan have had their reasons of conflicts since independence yet people from both the countries,ideally,prefer a peaceful co-existence, at least , now ! It would be interesting to see the performance of Musharraf in Pakistani General Elections. It would better define if the Pakistanis prefer his ideologies or not . It was easier for him last time to over throw the then Prime Minister-Nawaz Shareef and become the President himself. Winning elections and getting back governance of the country may not be a cake walk , this time !!
