After denied permission by City police and civic body, the BJP , at last, got the permission to hold Amit Shah’s rally at the site beside Victoria Hall by the Kolkata High Court.
The BJP has knocked the door of the Kolkata High Court thrice now after being denied approval for Amit Shah’s rally in outside Victoria Hall , a popular site ideally preferred by TMC Supremo, CM- Mamata Banerjee. Although the BJP had applied for the ground in July, five months later – last week, the police rejected the request citing traffic problems. The city’s civic body and the fire department also reportedly cited lack of proper sketch of the stage plan as the reason for disapproval.
Is planting ‘lotus’ in Bengal so easy in our didi’s reign?
Amit Shah who has been the ‘key’ knight for Modi in General Elections cracking difficult states like Uttar Pradesh in BJP’s favour and Maharashtra in State Elections, has a tougher competition to face.
For those who may not be aware of Kabaddi,it is one of the ethnic and old games played in India and neighbouring countries, the name of which originates from Tamil word- ‘ Kai-pidi’ meaning ‘Hold Hands’ .
The 2014 General Elections,in a nutshell,is Modi vs All.From small state level parties to big national level , all seem to be stopping this one man from being the Prime Minister of India 2014. Few are also from within his team. Others are maintaining silence to see the results before reacting and taking decisions.
After all, there are many silent contenders who wish to get the top job,few are known to all and few are waiting for the right opportunity. Almost all the parties are playing to stop Modi , be it newly formed AAP or formed since pre-Independence, Congress.
Regardless of the results of 2014 General Elections,Modi has surely emerged as the only extraordinary Indian politician for who citizens of the nation seem to have divided into two groups – Pro-Modi and Anti-Modi.

Possibility of a Third Front has been ignited by Nitish Kumar,CM,Bihar who after seeing Modi getting an upper edge in the NDA has discussed with CMs of Bengal and Orissa too. Akhilesh , CM , Utter Pradesh has also indicated a possibility of Third Front.Even in the recent past,after SP won Uttar Pradesh Elections,talks of a Third Front were floated by Mulayam Singh, the SP Supremo.
In the past none of the Third Front Governments could complete 5 years term as too many cook spoil the dish 😀 . All the aspiring CMs for the PM post may join hands but a group with all the bosses in the Team splits faster than thought about.
Please share your views about what you feel about the Third Front ?

Department of Telephony has ordered Internet Service Providers to block around 73 URLs which are defaming IIPM(Indian Institute of Planning and Management) and its chairman Arindam Chaudhari, including a UGC notice which declares that the private institute for Management Studies is not recognized with them.
Arindam Chaudhari sounded happy with DoT’s decision and declared UGC and AICTE both bodies packed with bribe-seeking officials.

Chasing an achievable score of 251 made by Pakistan in the 2nd ODI at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens,Team India collapsed at 165 all out,allowing Pakistan a series win (Pakistan wins 2 out of 3 match series) and helping Pakistan retain the record of being unbeatable for India at Eden Gardens .
While,England’s tour to India and a massive Test Series victory over India raised questions on M.S.Dhoni’s ability to captain all three formats and critics claiming a new captain for Test Formats , the One Day Series loss at home by Pakistan may put Dhoni’s captaincy, in all formats, under clouds of strong criticisms!
Just a thought,what might Didi tell Dhoni after Team India’s loss at Eden 🙂
