Agree, some dhoti shivering. But swiftness with which EC has been moving..makes me a bit nervous. A notice has been issued already EC Notice against NaMo

If this is EC, I guess it would not be far fetched that their decisions, equipment all can be rigged. Their neutrality in the whole election exercise is now repeatedly getting questions. Some time back, ex-Kerala CM E.K Nayanar of CPI(M) had got into a controversy when he showed his ballot paper (with his vote for the commies) before dropping it in.

There was also a concept of "Open vote", which is generally some leaders etc. casting their vote without standing behind the enclosure. This was okay, as it was expected that these leaders would certainly VOTE for one party. EK Nayanar was never a Modi (and never can become one), so this incident slowly died out.

I'm not too unduly worried about the FIRs/complaints. I don't see why any of these offences shouldn't be of a bailable nature. Once's that's taken care of court case can drag on for 10 years. Yawn Yawn. However the point here is that this was totally avoidable. I wonder who's been advising him in the past few days though. Even if he is convicted it won't automatically disqualify him as punishment is only for 2 years. So he can appeal and do some more yawn yawn for 10 more years.

No lying low etc. His victory is certain and now it is only a question of margins. That in itself will prevent mischief from most except the die-hard CON in the system and even those will be ineffective without the cooperation of the rest.

After all self preservation is one of the strongest motives and Modi has proven himself master of the system/administration in Gujarat. No one will go beyond a point to annoy him at this stage and a single individual or institution can do little on its own.

Interesting details:
EXCLUSIVE: What the 'Modi Sarkar' will do

According to a source, Modi does not believe in an Empowered Group of Ministers or a Group of Ministers to work out solutions to existing problems.

Modi feels that during the United Progressive Alliance's rule, there was a dual power centre, and ministries never had solutions. He is determined to set a new working environment in South Block.

According to the new mandate, bureaucrats will get complete authority and power to deal with the policies enunciated in the BJP's election manifesto.

Highlights:

Mergers and de-mergers of at least top eight Union ministries are on the cards.
A new look is being considered for the Union ministries of finance, commerce, home, tourism and railways.
A three-page report by the think-tank suggests merging of certain Union ministries and creating a new department and abolishing certain older versions.
The Directorate General of Foreign Trade to be withdrawn from the Union ministry of commerce and merged with the ministry of external affairs.
The ministry of corporate affairs to be absorbed by the ministry of finance.
The Railway Board to monitor a new department under the Union ministry of railways to prepare a blueprint for six bullet trains like those in China. These trains to be introduced in four years, with collaboration from Indian Railways and foreign investments.
Tourism to get prime position in the new government.
A new department in the Union home ministry to monitor the day-to-day coordination between the PMO and offices of the chief ministers of the 29 states. There would be a chief secretary-level official to coordinate and present a daily report to the prime minister.
The ministry of water resources to get a new name and an additional department carved out from the ministry of agriculture and rural development.
Modi's strategy is to involve chief ministers of borders states like Rajasthan, Gujarat, Punjab etc, whenever there is a discussion of the Cabinet Committee on Security. If there is a resolution, special invitee status will be considered for the chief minister of the concerned state. For example, on a discussion on the issue of fishermen would have chief ministers of Kerala and Tamil Nadu as special invitees.
Chief ministers of states to have weekly interaction with national security agencies.
Popular programmes of the United Progressive Alliance like the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act, to be reviewed and revamped.

Bahut hi kraantikari!

It was neither 'public meeting' or procession nor was it a 'press conference' as is being called by the media. While he was leaving the polling station he was approached by media for sound bites. Instead of giving a 'one liner' as most do he answered all questions posed by media spending 20 mins in the process. That is all there is to it.

They are trying to get him not for the selfie but for the press conference in which NaMo had the lotus symbol in his hands. I wonder whether he was simply rubbing it in to the congis by displaying the lotus symbol in such way, he could have pinned it to his kurta as well.
In any case I dont think a Press-conf would qualify for a "Public Meeting". In the worst catse ECI will fine him/reprimand him and Arnab can outrage for one more day.

I am really confused/worried/hassled about the interview with Kamal episode.

What is NaMo trying to do ? Why open a ch*nk in the armor in a fell run, completely focussed campaign by allowing for focus on redundant issues ? Plus if this can result in model code violation and arrest (potentially) -- this is a biggie. Why risk the entire campaign on a small item ?
