Re: 2019 Strategic and Political Analysis-1

I have a question to ask - What happened to the perpetrators who broke the wind panes of buses and other private vehicles in Delhi and created terror in Delhi public roads ? So far what has the Delhi police, under the direct control of the home ministry headed by Amit Shah, managed to do on that cas...

Re: 2019 General Elections News and Discussion

Unlike AP (I could be wrong here, happy to be corrected) The Aadheenams in TN not only have a glorious past that goes all the way to a millennia, they control pretty much every temple in the cauvery belt and thereby at least at names sake quite a large swathe of property as well .

Re: Kerala, Andhra and Tamil Nadu - news and strategy thread

^^10 crore is 100 million, much more than the entire population of TN, so doesn't sound right. Even 1 crore (10 million) would be unlikely as 1 in 7 people in TN would have to have requested and been approved for a Mudra loan. Sorry I stand corrected. Its 1 crore+ disbursal's.

Re: Kerala, Andhra and Tamil Nadu - news and strategy thread

It was not a one off by poll. People clearly knew the importance of this one. ADMK needed 9+ seats to survive, not one or two sneaky victory. I was just pointing out that the one sided anti-BJP wave (look at the victory margins) we saw in the loksabha elections, doesn't show up in the assembly elect...

Re: Kerala, Andhra and Tamil Nadu - news and strategy thread

Those who argue that the results in TN are a vote against ADMK are missing two things. #1. The electorate gave 9 seats (vs 11 to DMK) in the assembly election by-polls. Good enough to let the current govt. survive its full term. #2. Before the elections, in a poll about who is the "best person&...
