I would have been concerned if GG did not condem this alleged attack.

This fits in nicely with Modi bowing to the Indian constitution.

Has anyone done fact check what exactly happened or just jumping guns because rndv is reporting?

People have tweeted gambhir on his first tweet to do fact check and then respond. And yet he came up with another tweet. There are perils of electing such people who need abc course on politics.

Will support it if southern states want to break away from India: DMK leader MK Stalin.

"Vandhaal varaverkapaduginrathu (If it (such a situation) comes, it is being welcomed)," Stalin said in Tamil, in response to a reporter who said the prevailing situation in southern states might give rise to a demand for a Dravida Nadu movement. "Varum endra nambikkaiyil thaan naan irukkiren (I hope that it will come)," he adds.

This exchange took place Friday in Erode, a district in western Tamil Nadu.

Religious divide obliterates good work of ‘Ponnaar’

Consolidation of Christian votes went against Pon. Radhakrishnan in Kanniyakumari
Though he had executed commendable multi-crore development projects in his constituency, which were quite new to the southernmost segment of the country’s mainland, the lone BJP MP from Tamil Nadu and Union Minister of State for Shipping and Finance Pon. Radhakrishnan, suffered a crushing defeat in the Lok Sabha polls from Kanniyakumari constituency at the hands of H. Vasanthakumar of Congress by a whopping margin of 2.59 lakh votes.

While Mr. Vasanthakumar, chairman of the widely popular Vasanth & Co., polled 6,26,916 votes, Mr. Radhakrishnan got 3,67,108 votes.

With this victory, Mr. Vasanthakumar, the richest candidate from Tamil Nadu, has avenged the defeat he had suffered at the hands of Mr. Radhakrishnan in the same constituency in the 2014 general elections.

So why did christian chose to vote against Pon Radhakrishnan despite his work for the constituency? That story had just one quote from an unnamed pastor to the effect that Christian families were prevented from holding small family inside their houses by hindu lumpen elements. It is astonishing that the reporter just let that go without any challenge even though that is central to the whole story.

For goodness sake, please stop being so critical of a newbie and show him the right path instead . He’s not even been sworn in as MP - show him the right path now . The BJP has lots of raw and new MPs - they have to get 303 people up and running . Criticizing them is not the way to go . Help them on the right path .

No ones mentioned it so far but a large mandate isn’t entirely a blessing because there are 300+ people who need managing , a large number of whom are newcomers . The last time any government had this ‘problem’ was bhrashtachar #1 a generation ago. If they make mistakes, it’s not useful to pile upon them . With SM , they are directly reachable to state your point clearly and sincerely .

There is definition of smart who learn from even a short experience.

This man himself claims he is a victim of false malicious pamphlet propaganda by AAP. Entire RW stood behind him. And yet when opportunity presented he promptly chose to p!!ss all over them for a propaganda he doesn't even want to fact check before he speaks.

Speaks lot about man's character than his profession.

Karan sir, with all due respect, it's not that he spoke something about an incident. It's why has he been silent about scores of his own party workers getting killed? How many died just after results? What about Tyagi murder? What about Ankit Jain murder? What abour Dr Narang Murder?

There can be only two possible reasons, first, either he is clueless or unaware of his own party workers getting killed all over India and hindus murdered in his own city. If this is the case, why was such a clueless person given ticket replacing Mahesh Girri? Second, he is aware of all that, but yet he just spoke about someone getting slapped and chose to remain silent over brutal murders. And even quotes that guy of all the people he can quote. If this is the case, why was such two faced, secular kook aid person given ticket replacing a long term member like MG?

Anyway, there are bigger things to worry about and look forward to going forward.

Hes just joined the party. I reiterate, he likely knows very little about the situation, calling him names/cursing him is pointless. Most folks including many voters are also unaware of whats happening right next to them. Give him time.
As to why him, not MG - I suspect, because he could win, because of the celebrity angle.

Pinkerton: India Elections Show Conservative Nationalism on the March Worldwide
JAMES P. PINKERTON, BREITBART ,25 May 2019

Here’s a mournful May 20 headline from Bloomberg Opinion: “The right-wing populist playbook keeps winning.” What’s the secret of this “right-wing populist playbook”? It’s actually not much of a secret: getting more votes.
As I have recently noted, that same right-wing playbook was used in Australia, where the conservative-nationalist coalition just won re-election. And what exactly did the Aussie conservative nationalists do? They attacked their opponents for being liberal globalists, which, of course, they were. See? Politics isn’t so hard. If the majority is conservative and nationalist, the thing to do is invoke that majority, stay true to it, campaign on it—and then you’ll win.

Now this simple-enough playbook has just been played in India, too, where on May 23, the conservative nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), led by Narendra Modi, won re-election. The Washington Post headline tells the tale: “India’s Modi wins resounding election victory with potent appeal to nationalism.” [emphasis added]

Modi’s BJP won an estimated 304 seats in the 543-member Lok Sabha, or parliament; that’s the biggest victory for an Indian politician in half a century. And to put the results another way, we can note that the second-place party won a mere 51 seats.

On the night of his victory, always sticking to nationalist themes, Modi said, “If someone has won today, it’s the country.”

Of course, others had their preferred spin. Speaking, as always, for liberal globalism, Bloomberg chastised, “Heavy-handed appeals to nationalism that rally the masses to his side.” And the like-mindedly liberal BBC explained, “The vote had been widely viewed as a referendum on the prime minister’s Hindu nationalist politics.” Needless to say, since Modi won, the Beeb isn’t happy; the same article continued, “A strident—and at times violent—Hindu nationalism has become mainstream in the past five years.” The article made no mention, of course, about terrorism in India, such as the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai that left 164 dead, or the 2019 suicide bombing that killed 40 Indian soldiers.

Indian Border Security Force (BSF) personnel keep a vigil watch near India-Bangladesh fencing border during a patrol ahead of India's 70th Republic Day celebration at Lankamura village, on the outskirts of Agartala, the capital of northeastern state of Tripura on January 24, 2019. - 31 stranded Rohingya refugees were detained on January 22 in Tripura, where members of the stateless group had been stuck in no-mans land on the India-Bangladesh border.

In both cases, the killers had slipped into India from neighboring Pakistan, and so, understandably, India is touchy about border security. To that end, the Modi government has toughened up on immigration, including movement from another neighboring Muslim country, Bangladesh. Modi defines this effort as the normal maintenance of homeland security, while the critics have labeled it—you knew this was coming—a “Muslim ban.”

Indeed, in a different article aimed, no doubt, at getting clicks from its left-leaning readership, the BBC slapped on the headline “Echoes of Trump in Modi’s border politics.”

Still, the biggest issue for India is improving life in the country. Economic growth for the last five years has averaged more than seven percent—a faster rate rate than China’s. Yet even so, India’s 1.3 billion people are mostly poor, and the Modi government has struggled to advance prosperity on multiple fronts, from suppressing the black market, to providing more aid to farmers, to bringing electricity and sewers to villages.

Along the way, Modi has suffered his share of political bumps and bruises, and yet the chowkidar (watchman), as he is known, has gotten credit for having his heart in the right place. And as we have seen, the recent election results speak for themselves; Modi won his second term by a wider margin than he won his first.

What’s also interesting is that others around the world recognize that Modi is a fellow conservative-nationalist “playbooker.” And it’s that shared consciousness that inspired Scott Morrison, the newly re-elected right-wing prime minister of Australia, to tweet his supportive sentiments
Congratulations @narendramodi on your historic re-election as Prime Minister of India. Australia and India enjoy a strong, vibrant and strategic partnership, and our India Economic Strategy will take our ties to a new level. I look forward to meeting again soon.
And a little while later, speaking for American conservative nationalists, President Trump jumped in with a tweet of his own:
Congratulations to Prime Minister @NarendraModi and his BJP party on their BIG election victory! Great things are in store for the US-India partnership with the return of PM Modi at the helm. I look forward to continuing our important work together!
Indeed, one can point to a slew of conservative nationalists—including Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro, Hungary’s Viktor Orbán, and Israel’s Bibi Netanyahu—who have become the democratically elected leaders of their respective countries. Another important figure in this worldwide movement is Italy’s Matteo Salvini; he’s the deputy prime minister, albeit not the head of state.

What all these leaders have in common is a sense that they are leading their country, starting with a majority of their people. India, for example, is 80 percent Hindu, and so Modi leads and inspires by embodying Hindutva, which is a sort of political version of Hinduism.

Plenty of Modi critics—mostly on the globalist left, of course—will decry this sort of majoritarianism, but we might ask ourselves: What’s the preferred alternative? Rule by the minority? Rule by the courts? Rule by un-elected bureaucrats? Those forms of rule are typically just a proxy for rule by the elite, typically connected to corporate globalism.

And it’s just this sort of rule that the conservative nationalists have rejected. As Hungary’s Orbán puts it, Hungarians are not voting for liberal democracy, they’re voting for illiberal democracy. That is, while the elites have done their best to convince people that “liberalism” and “democracy” must always be coupled together, Orbán and others have proved, it ain’t necessarily so. You can be a right-winger and a small “d” democrat; you simply have to figure out how to get the most votes, just as any other Democrat politician.

Recent events show that once the voters get a taste of illiberal democracy, also known as conservative nationalism, they tend to like it. They like, for example, the idea that a democratically-elected government can seek to uphold traditional values, not erode them. They appreciate, and will vote for, public officials who love their country and its people. By the same token, regular folks don’t like leaders who bad-mouth the country and go looking around the world for people they like better.

So once ordinary people understand that they have ballot-box power, well, then, the liberal globalists have a problem. That is, the “lib-globs” are happiest when they have convinced the voters that there’s no alternative to their hegemony.

Thus in countries where the alternative of conservative nationalism has emerged and flourished, the lib-globs have a problem—and they know it. To prove that point, we might ask ourselves: Do Democrats in America today look happy?

Read the comments too on what the Global/American right is thinking on Modi victory.

A big part of d blame for Christchurch killings should rest with us & d “Propaganda” Media. We had conveniently branded Muslims as oppressive to gain applause from d majority of d Indian gallery on social media & get TV ratings. For me secularism is the best thing about democracy

The guy is thoroughly confused about secularism, terrorism and he is just a loudmouth.

Anyway, he is an MP now and nothing can be done about it. Lets hope he learns and educate himself about politics, geopolitics and religion.

I think he is pretty new to the BJP fold, but i have feeling he would have taken an MP role if Congress would have offered him that role. So, I see more of an opportunist rather than someone with a malicious intent

Yeh, I think the same.

This election all or at least most of the MPs got elected on Modi's name. BJP is a cadre based party and has thousands of karyakartas who work for the cause 24/7. This could have been an opportunity for BJP to reward some of those hard workers by giving them ticket instead of bringing an outsider gasbag like gambhir. Just IMHO.

Anyway hindsight is 20 20. BJP must have good reasons to give him ticket.

Yes, same with the likes of Hema Malini or Kiron Kher et al. Not sure what purpose their candidatures have served.

I noted that Kirit Somaiya was denied a ticket to appease UT. Is this how you reward loyal karyakartas?

The looting of AP is massive in the last 5 years. That too when there was serious fund shortage due to division. Hope NM order some serious criminal investigation into all this.


Election is over so no need for same lines of propaganda. If funds were given as per process, bills and work to see will be there as Polavaram is not a some secret project. Let them audit :D .

On January 7th, 2019, The Polavaram project in Andhra Pradesh entered the Guinness Book of World Records by pouring 32,100 cubic meters of concrete in 24 hours by Navayuga Engineering.
...


Yours truly had the honour of participating in polavaram project. The way the contract was awarded in first place reeks of extreme corruption. The company initially performing the execution works should have never been allotted the project. The owner of the company(Transstroy) was a TDP mp. I can give you lot of details. CBN was more interested in loot whether it was polavaram or Amravathi. It is AP's good luck that Namo and Gadkari didn't allow CBN to do as he wished. Or all that money would have went straight to the pockets of CBN and his cronies. Otherwise I can assure you Namo will never held up a genuine fund requirements for a national importance project.

From Sreenivasan Jain's twitter :
Rahul Gandhi tells top Congress leaders that he is not taking back his resignation. Tells them they will have to find a new President, reports NDTV's Sunil Prabhu.

Are we seeing an old tactic being revived : To place a puppet on the hotseat and rule from behind the scenes without any direct responsibility?

The situation is far worse in AE compared to GE for jihadidi.

In many LS seat that TMC won, 4 to 5 VS seats under it are with BJP and a single rural minority dominant VS seat has given them the necessary 50k+ lead to win the LS itself covering all such short fall.

For AE, TMC is literally shitting brick.

Exactly. Plus anyways he is a votary of eliminating GST altogether. Whereas current govt is backing is betting on GST. Hence there is a contradiction.

Pity the assembly election is still 2 years away in Bengal. Hope BJP goes in for the kill by not dropping the ball for the next 2 years.
The resurgence of eastern India can truly happen only with Bengal driving it .

Rahul Gandhi should be replaced by a fresh new face, an outsider, like Priyanka Gandhi

no change required saar. we are doing very well with him as the boss

he has pissed off enough of the old guard and his new guard team has been slaughtered.

politicos are ever revengeful and those slighted will get back to damage him when least expected.

the maara maari will commence in KAR and it will be evident in the very next assembly elections wherever it may be.

I think that it is a very well scripted game in play to get certain people to resign and that has not happened yet. the big guns are holding on for dear life.

all those "resigning" are the easily replaced lallu panjus who will be quietly rehabilitated once the little storm in the tea cup blows over.

Notice how all those screaming unwashed hordes who used to go "priyanka lao, desh ko bachao" types have simply melted away and crawled back under the damp rocks and their instigators have disappeared into the woodwork.

motormouth tehseen p0rn0walla is giving some indications of discussions in the mafia parivar about their thinking when he does his meltdowns on TV.

P Chidu must have got 10000 volt shock in his lungi. He harrased modi for almost 12 years out of loyalty to gandhi family, and now abandoned by his masters and mightier than before modi coming after him. Karma is a beach.

it may mean that the mafia family kavach over his court cases may be affected and he will end up fighting a very lonely battle indeed.
