Govt can use CBI and put one in jail says Mulayam Singh and probably that is the only reason he yells out poison against Congress and yet never leaves UPA ! 😉
If Congress sources are to be believed, Dr Manmohan Singh may become the party’s choice for the prime minister’s post for a possible third term if Rahul Gandhi continues to insist on staying behind and strengthening the party rather than opting as the face for UPA Prime Ministerial Candidate for 2014 General Elections !
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.
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 ! 😉
Coming April 9, Gujarat’s CM, Narendra Modi is scheduled to address industrialists in Kolkata and his party had planned a reception that evening for him at the city’s famous Netaji Indoor Stadium, which can seat over 10,000 people.While the stadium initially told it was free suddenly backed-off siting preoccupation by a private party,leaving BJP party workers helpless. The state President of BJP,Rahul Sinha,wrote to the Bengal CM, Mamata Banerjee , who said she could not help .
Is this a beginning of tussle between two aggressive leaders and Chief Ministers of India ?
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 ??
If someone can please inform Ekta Kapoor that she has got great material to promote her upcoming project -‘Ek Thi Daayan’ (Once there was Witch) ! 😀 😀 😀
Pakistani former President , General Pervez Musharraf has entered his country again, after a long exile to contest for the country’s upcoming General Elections . With his entry in his country , started a series of news conferences where he has been discussing about his self-exile and reasons of coming back to Pakistan and also declared that he was proud of the Kargil Operation in the year 1999.
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 !!
Tamil Nadu’s CM Jayalalitha has written to the PM that 13 players from Sri Lanka who are in IPL shall not be allowed to play in Chennai !Well, only politicians know the usage of stopping cricket or cricket players to demonstrate protests against countries ! How does that help ? Oh yes !! vote bank politics ……… 😉
Poor Karunanidhi ! He initiated the protest against Sri Lanka before Jaya by leaving UPA and this time it is Jayalalitha who encashed the Anti-Sri Lankan air in her state ! 🙂
In a reversing move , Shiv Sena has decided not to stand in favour of Sanjay Dutt’s jail sentence be pardoned, pointing out that supporting Sanjay Dutt would set a very wrong example !
Why a U-Turn ? Is it a lack of decision making ? Or Uddhav is inspired by Mulayam Ji ? 😀
The US resolution against Sri Lanka over alleged human rights violations has been passed at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva with 25 countries, including India,favouring the resolution while 13 against(included Pakistan) and 8 abstained from voting (includes Japan) !
While,Sri Lanka claims the war to finish Tamil terrorism and issues related to it are its internal matters and that US has no rights to intervene, India’s voting against Sri Lanka is bound to tense relation with its small yet strategically placed neighbour(which shares healthy relation with China and Pakistan) . Interestingly,Pakistan voted in favour of Sri Lanka.
