Re: 2019 Strategic and Political Analysis-1

Arvind Sawant resigns (SS minister in Center). Looks like SS-NCP-Cong government in MH. As much as I am happy with the fact that BJP has now split with SS, I am equally terrified of prospects (SS+Cong+NCP) rule over MH. They could sabotage all the good work being done, especially a lot of infra work...

That's great achievement. Sometime back, getting any bills passed in Rajya Sabha was impossible. Not anymore. How about RTE? That is a constitutional amendment? Would that require 2/3rd majority in LS or RS? (I don't think Congoons ever had 2/3rd numbers to pass it).
