Re: Indian Navy News & Discussion - 03 July 2018

I had huge hopes on Kattupalli. L&T is right there among reliable companies. IIRC, it was developed primarily for subs. But no orders so far, very disappointing. Hope MoD looks into construction timelines. It's atrocious at the moment.

Re: Indian Railways Thread (Dec 2015)

No need to privatize, our own case shows that if government has its mind in right place it can accomplish things even with huge org such as IR. Have you guys seen the prices of airline tickets? We don't want same thing to happen with railways.

She shouldn't have attacked karkare like the way she did. Expose him, Yes, but curse him, no. Although from conversations in various groups show marked polarization, we always need to keep in mind that in many seats the swing votes make the difference.

Well, high turnout is better for BJP. So that generalization is not necessarily true. Saw Sachin Reddy's tweet that congi supporters are demotivated and not turn up, so we may see a dip in polling percentages, he also said same applies to BJP supporters, but more so for congis.
