Advisory: Don’t Misuse ‘Ram’!

Posted on 27 December 2018 by admin

If the highest of sources are to be believed, then two days prior the results of the five-state assembly polls a crucial meeting was held at the Delhi headquarters of RSS in which Amit Shah, Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s president Justice Sadashiv Kokje and veteran RSS officials were present.
In it, the BJP president was told that ‘the VHP wanted the issue of Ram Mandir be raised symbolically in elections. But the BJP instead made it the key agenda. This is probably the reason why we are losing in the three Hindi heartlands.’
Sources reveal that post the outcome of the recent assembly elections the Sangh told the BJP high command that the public is rejecting them on the issue of the Ram Mandir.
The ordinance is also redundant on the matter. So, now one only looks up to the law. The judicial process should be completed in it and we should await the Supreme Court’s decision.

Time Spares None

Posted on 27 December 2018 by admin

When the Modi government was awarded a clean chit by the apex court, BJP president Amit Shah held a press conference in this regard, at the party headquarter.
This time Shah showed a different avatar of himself. Earlier the Shah who used to ignore the questions thrown at him by the journos or reply with witty remarks, was this time wrapped with all the kindness in the world.
Shah was, surprisingly, attending the journalists and making small conversations – ‘How are you? Did you eat anything? Had tea?’
The old Shah would have dodged any Rahul related questions, saying: ‘Who are you bothering me with; I do not answer such questions.’ But the new, polite Shah was addressing all these questions, too.
Yes, he did dodge one ball – the one with the results of the five-state polls. He said: ‘That is old news now. Talk about Rafale today.’
It is aptly said, there is no better healer than time. It treats each equally. It spares none.

Sonia Still The Frontrunner

Posted on 27 December 2018 by admin

Had the command been completely in Rahul’s hands, then Jyotiraditya Scindia had been the CM of Rajasthan and Sachin Pilot of Rajasthan. Even Priyanka shared these thoughts of her brother that to breathe energy into the party the young faces should be given opportunities.
But Sonia Gandhi, and the likes of her, had a whole different view on the matter. According to them, currently the party is need of experienced people to run these states now and for the run up to the 2019 general elections so that the Congress can put up a grand show.
Of course the obedient children went by their mother’s advice.

In Search Of Shah’s Replacement

Posted on 27 December 2018 by admin

Nowadays RSS and its allies have been dwelling over why the BJP is in such a bad shape in the Hindi hearlands? The good and the bad – all have been spilled in this discussion.
One such bean was that since the prime minister and the party president are both Gujarati, this is not working fine for the Hindi belt. Anyway, the party workers have never been happy with the way Amit Shah functions. So, as of now the party is in need of a President who is available to all, listens to all.
Following this, an RSS official suggested the name of Shivraj Singh Chouhan. In their opinion, Shivraj is both popular and cooperative. Shivraj was also sent a filler from thr RSS’ side but the former is not ready to leave Madhya Pradesh.
After this Nitin Gadkari’s name was put forth. Even the party cadre puts a seal of acceptance on his name. But the RSS feels that Modi will never approve for Gadkari.
At the end, the heads have turned towards Rajnath Singh, with whom neither Modi has any issues nor the RSS. Is this the reason why sections of BJP raising their voices against Shah? Is it possible without the RSS’ backing?

Who’s The Santa At Khurshid’s Party?

Posted on 27 December 2018 by admin

Each year on the occasion of Christmas, Salman Khurshid throws a party. In the party Salman’s journalist friends, fellow politicians, close friends, foreign diplomats and a few bureaucrats are the invitees.
This time the party was thrown at Selja Kumari’s residence. The party was on one hand graced by familiar faces like Ahmed Patel, Ambika Soni, Rajeev Shukla, Sheila Dikshit, and of course Selja, on the other Nalin Kohli of the BJP could also be seen there.
But the two prominent faces that were the surprise package of the evening were Farooq Abdullah of the National Conference party and Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson Rajmohan Gandhi. Abdullah, in fact, was all ‘Santa’ suited-up in red clothes.
The guests were congratulating Salman on the splendid victory of the Congress in the recently concluded five-state assembly polls. To this Salman was humbly responding, saying that the party should be congratulated and not him.
Anyhow Khurshid was nowhere to be seen during the campaigning of these polls.

Salman Says – Que Sera, Sera!

Posted on 27 December 2018 by admin

The hot topic at Salman Khurshid’s Christmas party was whether the Congress should become a part of the SP-BSP alliance in Uttar Pradesh.
A leader from UP said that Akhilesh and Maya do not intend to leave any more than five seats for the Congress in 2019. This will only further crash the little remaining mass base of the party in the state. It would be better that the party fights its own battle so that a new confidence is pumped in the party worker.
At this someone asked Salman whether he will contest the Lok Sabha elections or try out for Rajya Sabha. On this, Khurshid’s humble reply was that he ‘was earlier too not disappointed on not being offered a Rajya Sabha seat. Others were offered and he had no objection. I am engaged in my work.’

Think Before You Act

Posted on 27 December 2018 by admin

In his parting words to the BJP, Upendra Kushwaha said: ‘Ministers are mere dummies in the Modi government; the source of all decisions is just one (aiming his target at the PMO).’
Dismissing Kushwaha’s claims as ‘balderdash’, Minister of Science & Technology and Environment, Forest & Climate Change, Harsh Vardhan, made a bold move by taking a major decision by handing over his secretary a transfer order. Before any further action could be taken in the Order, Kushwaha was summoned by the PMO.
The cuckoos in the PMO coo that Kushwaha was served with harsh words and post this he not only had to cancel the Order but also change his further intentions.

Baghel’s Check-Mate To Singhdeo

Posted on 27 December 2018 by admin

Bhupesh Baghel aced the CM race in Chhattisgarh, although his competitor TS Singhdeo projected a much better graph than him. In this, a few journalists emerged as Baghel’s saviour. Anyhow, Baghel’s relation with journos is better than his competitors.
So an investigative journalist went snooping and finally dug out the documents to expose TS Singhdeo’s connection with Gautam Adani, which he handed over to Rahul Gandhi. It hit the bull’s eye and Singhdeo was knocked out of the CM race.
Although Baghel had misled Rahul about the Kurmi voters in the state – the birds in Chhattisgarh Congress sing that he had the 12 per cent Kurmi population as 22 per cent instead – the matter was not paid any heed since Baghel is considered as the lesser of two evils by the Gandhi Parivar.
Another chief ministerial contender Tamradhwaj Sahu, had a fierce opposition in the party itself, because ‘money-for-post’ charges has been a known trait of him.
Amid this, Baghel hit the lottery with the help of a few journalists – probably why at least four of his journo friends are now on the CM’s advisory panel.

Who’s The Real Chanakya?

Posted on 27 December 2018 by admin

Back in those days when the screening process of BJP candidates in Rajasthan was at its peak, in one such meeting Vasundhara Raje and party president Amit Shah crossed swords.
So the scoop is Raje claimed to have a good knowledge of the seats in the state having toured around the entire state at least four times. As per that she had prepared a list of worthy candidates which she tried to get through Shah.
The word is, Shah sided the list without even giving it a second’s glance. He instead tried handing over a list he had prepped in which, according to the four surveys he had conducted, three candidates per seat were suggested on priority basis. He asked Raje to consider his list and then hold a discussion over the suggested names for finalisation.
The cuckoos coo that the list was torn into pieces by a furious Raje. When the temperature of the meet soared high, a formula was introduced to put the issue aside. As per the formula, 80 seats were given to Raje while the rest 120 were Shah’s to decide the candidates.
If sources are to be believed, when the polls results came, 62 out of Raje’s 80 trumped the elections whilst a mere 11 out of Shah’s 120 could prove their worth.

Bureaucrats under scanner

Posted on 20 December 2018 by admin

When Narendra Modi took over the throne of Delhi, bureaucrats were overjoyed. There was a visible downfall in the popularity of the elected public representatives. In fact, the department secretaries of different ministries started superseding the ministers and directly submitted their report to the PMO.
But now the prime minister has a feeling that the bureaucracy is tipping off the government’s plans and schemes to journalists.
A few days ago when a new secretary took charge of a crucial ministry, as many as four journalists visited him in his office. The secretary told the journos that the government is initiating initiatives, drafting important points of the new policy, etc… etc… etc…
Even before these journalists could step out the secretary’s office, the latter received a call from Nripendra Mishra from the PMO. The word is Mishra told off the secretary that he is not a minister and it is not his job to talk to journalists; he should rather concentrate on his work.
In the next few days, another secretary was invited by a news channel to speak on water security policies. He too received a heated phone call. The secretary innocently replied that he is going to the Conclave to boast of the achievements of the government. He was told that there are many other people to speak of the achievements of the government; he should mind his own business.
The buzz in the corridors of power is that the bureaucrats are being closely monitored by the government’s secret agencies.
