Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde gave an advice for Arvind Kejriwal , the new Chief Minister of Delhi,on how to run a coalition government.He sited example of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the matter and asked Kejriwal to learn from Dr Singh how to run a government in coalition.The Congress has given support to AAP with its eight seats from outside to help run AAP’s government in Delhi.Although AAP is supported by Congress ,it is not refraining from making statements against Congress and BJP.
Is that the way coalition govt work? Isn’t coalition govt an unsaid understanding between parties where the supporting party should be kept happy at any cost ? 😀 What better could have been an example of how to run a coalition govt than our UPAII govt? 😉
AAP , the new political party in the nation and Arvind Kejriwal , the activist turned politician has given Sheila Dikshit and Congress great defeat in Delhi Assembly Polls and has come out as a strong contender for both the Congress and BJP. Interestingly, out of the 70 seats , AAP , the first timer in politics, has won 28 seats. BJP has managed 32 seats falling 4 short of getting the throne of Delhi. Congress has failed to manage even two figures.
Sheila Dikshit , has already resigned from the Chief Minister’s post.Pre-elections,she was heard claiming 2013 Delhi Assembly Elections was as usual a tough fight between Congress and BJP and did not consider Arvind Kejriwal and his AAP party any threat. Even BJP gave similar but balanced statements about AAP. However, the acceptance of AAP in Delhi shows the impact they have been able to create. The impact of the India Against Corruption Movement started by Anna Hazare and the decision of Arvind Kejriwal to enter into politics to curb corruption has got a warm welcome from the capital of the country.
Tougher task ahead for Arvind Kejriwal of keeping the faith of his supporters intact and for good.
The BJP, on the other hand , won 3 states – Rajasthan,Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh but the impact of NaMo wind could not stop the broom-man Arvind Kejriwal from being a spoiler for BJP.Although they got 32 seats in Delhi, they are 4 short of making a govt there. But so far,the trend for 2014 General Elections seem to be getting clearer.
The Mumbai Congress chief, Janardan Chandurkar, demanded legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar’s stripped of her Bharat Ratna after her public endorsement of Narendra Modi as the next Prime Minister of the nation.
Previously, BJP’s Chandan Mitra had made similar demand asking Nobel laureate Amartya Sen be stripped of his Bharat Ratna for saying that he would not like to see Narendra Modi as the country’s next Prime Minister.
As the media says, you may love him or hate him but you can’t avoid him.That is Narendra Modi.
Our PM Dr.Manmohan Singh ranked first in the list of world’s most powerful, influential and contemporary Sikh, as per the first edition of the annual ‘Sikh 100’ published in London.
Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission,Montek Singh Ahluwalia stood good 69.
Most of us will agree on that ranking of Dr Singh.After all, he holds the Prime Minister’s chair of World’s largest democracy and about to complete 10 years as a PM and is not even burdened with the responsibilities of the office. 😉
While campaigning for his party in Chattisgarh, Rahul Gandhi attacked BJP claiming they were the World Champions of Corruption. 😀
While there is no denying that there is no party in India which can claim itself cent percent corruption free,but Congress handing over the trophy of corrupt party to BJP is a little too generous. Ain’t it ? 😉
The Election Commission of India has asked Rahul Gandhi , the Congress Vice-President , to explain his ‘ISI remark’ after the BJP complained about him of violating the model code of conduct pre-elections. He was given a week’s time while his office said he remained busy during the festival hence the commission has granted him another 4 days to explain.In one of his speeches in the recent past, Rahul Gandhi had said that some security agencies informed him that the minority riot victims of the Muzaffarnagar riots are being contacted by Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI to join terror outfits. Rahul had accused the BJP of playing communal politics even in Muzaffarnagar riots which is provoking differences between communities.
Rahul Gandhi’s speeches always remain under the radar of Media and Opposition as much as Narendra Modi’s and this is yet another addition to his controversial statements in the past. His previous theories like Poverty is a state of Mind and Dalits need Jupiter’s escape velocity to succeed are already popular and it seems like the ISI recruitment theory would need an explanation too.
In response to Election Commission of India seeking views from nation’s political parties on banning Opinion Polls , the Congress has favoured banning such opinion polls completely declaring it unscientific and non-transparent. The party explained that such results can make a misleading impact on voters. Other parties including the main opposition,BJP, said that the Congress was concerned about the recent Opinion Poll surveys which show Congress performing very poor and hence backing a ban.
Prime Minister,Dr Singh and Gujarat Chief Minister,Narendra Modi, shared stage in Ahmedabad while inaugurating the renovated Museum of Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel. Both the leaders praised Sardar Patel for his contribution as a patriotic politician of his times and took the opportunity to hit out at eachother as well.Modi said Sardar Patel deserved to be the first Prime Minister of the nation and had he been the PM the fortune of the country would have been different.Manmohan Singh countered Modi by stating Sarder Patel was a secular man and that he and Nehru(the first Indian PM) had deep mutual respect.
Rahul Gandhi has been regularly making news these days with his statements at different rallies. To add another feather to his list of remarkable statements , he recalled while campaigning for 2009 elections in Bundelkhand,he got stomach bugs due to drinking village water and was bitten by about 25000 mosquitoes. BTW, is there any gadget to count the number of mosquitoes attacking us ? 😀
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said that he was not above the law of the land and that CBI can ask him anything on coal scam and that he had nothing to hide. The opposition demanded his interrogation and resignation as he held direct charge of the Coal Ministry when two coal blocks in Odisha were assigned to a firm owned by industrialist Kumar Mangalam Birla. Interestingly, the CBI, is ideally considered Govt’s pet. 🙂
