Re: Indian Economy News & Discussion - Aug 26 2015

Continuing where Vina left.. there are too many toll booths on highway, surcharge for things that are not improving e.g swachh Bharat. Middle class is paying a lot of money for very little in return. Although I will continue to bote for Modi but only because of TINA factor. His ideas are good but im...

Re: Statewide and National runup to 2014 General elections

Buzz from Rajasthan Congress and BJP units. BJP expected to win 20-21 seats. Sachin Pilot, Girija Vyas will lose. Biggest win for BJP will come from Rajsamand. Betting rate for BJP is 20 paisa there.

Re: Narendra Modi vs the Dynasty: Contrasting Ideas of India

Not sure how much influence these people will have. But the BJP CMs and Amit Shah will most probably make sure these people don't succeed in stopping Modi from coming to Delhi.

Re: Narendra Modi vs the Dynasty: Contrasting Ideas of India

Madhu Kishwar on twitter is saying that Jaitley is trying to sabotage Modi's chance. He deliberately chose wrong candidates in Jammu. Also Jaitley, Sushma etc are delaying candidate selection. But all rumors must be taken with a pinch of salt.

The good thing about AAP is that it will force BJP to select doers and not Dilli Billis.

Some of this has come from her loss last time, NaMO effect and some from how people have v...

I think NaMo did not mention Pandits because he was focusing on creating fissures between Shias and Gurjars on one side and Sunnis on there thereby breaching the enemy fort. But it does show that he is taking Pandits for granted.

Some panelists said that Samajwadi Party and INC may form a covert or overt alliance in UP to contain BJP's reemergence. I have also seen people claiming that INC and BSP will team up. In both the cases BJP may not increase its seats much if there is no wave in its favour.
