Kejri isn't getting enough of minority vote it seems. I'd suspect most of the votes against NM would be from there.

Folks - Kerala is churning fast. Looks like anti-NaMo folks in Hindu organisations are being shown the door.

http://www.business-standard.com/articl ... 358_1.html

If the Nairs and the Ezhavas (a section) come together with the RSS cadres and the non-proselytising Christian groups, as seems to be happening, it is a winning social combination all over the state. I am not sure how much this social base can solidify (also, the Nairs/Ezhavas, RSS cadres, and the Christians have been on opposite sides (LDF, BJP and UDF respectively), so there will be many feathers ruffled and shift is not going to happen overnight) before the polls, but this social combination can win about 18 of the 20 seats in Kerala, and about 100-110 of the 140 seats in the Assembly

However, happy to see that, regional parties are not favoured much and reduced to their traditional core vote percentage of 22%.

ABP Survey Highlights

Mumbai-Thane-Bhiwandi (Greater Mumbai): 10 seats

Cong-NCP - 3
BJP-SS - 6
AAP -1

Delhi
BJP 1
AAP 6

Gurgaon and Faridabad - 2 seats Both BJP

Ghaziabad and Gautam Buddh Nagar (Noida) -2 seats

BJP 1
AAP 1

Of course the flash news is that AAP winning 6 seats in delhi

Pretty much shows that AAP is kaput, its is a no one outside delhi, so much that they are nothing even in gurgaon and faridabad. The survey specifically does Mumbai and Delhi, meaning other metros (forget cities), AAP is a duck. They got the best propaganda in the last month and despite this, they can only do this much. Things can only go down from here for them.

But to cut to the chase, Congress has succeeded in at least cut BJP seats in 5-10 seats based on this survey. The 6 in delhi should have all come to BJP (well I am not so sure of that, as I have shown in a previous analysis, over years Delhi has become a congress city, and now a AAP city).

Vikatan had a survey 1 week ago where 88% of people in TN had not even heard of AAP. Thats the most probable reason why the jholawalas were not included in the survey

http://www.abplive.in/india/2014/01/13/ ... tQKLbSFdwj

The survey has been conducted in all 7 Parliamentary Constituencies in Delhi, 4 NCR Constituencies (two each in Uttar Pradesh and Haryana) and 10 Parliamentary Constituencies in Mumbai-Thane. Around 2585 respondents have taken part in the survey.

Delhi

Congress which won all the 7 seats in Delhi is projected to win not even a single seat this around as AAP has managed to sway the voters.

Kejriwal’s new government in Delhi is expected to win 6 seats while the Bharatiya Janata Party might get just one.

National-Capital Region (2 seats in Uttar Pradesh, Ghaziabad & Gautam Buddha Nagar)

In the NCR seats of Uttar Pradesh, AAP & BJP are likely to win one seat each in Gautam Buddha Nagar and Ghaziabad. The BSP will lose its single seat. AAP could win in Ghaziabad. BJP chief Rajnath Singh has a big challenge at hand.

National-Capital Region (2 seats in Haryana, Gurgaon & Faridabad)

Kejriwal’s party hasn’t made much of an impact in Haryana as the figures reveal that BJP is likely to snatch Congress’ two seats in the region. Both AAP & Congress are left empty-handed here.

Mumbai and Thane

It might be a matter of concern for AAP if they decided to field candidates in Mumbai in coming Lok Sabha elections. The question everyone in everyone’s mind is how the AAP will perform in India’s financial capital. If we examine Mumbai’s voting history, then the party has a challenge on its hands as the city is lethargic when it comes to voting. The Anna movement also didn’t find success out here.

Let’s look at the results. Despite little gain in vote share in Mumbai, BJP is seen gaining its hold in 6 seats with ally Shiv Sena. The Congress & NCP’s tally looks a little better out here as it is expected to win 3 seats while the AAP manages to garner just one.

The bad news here for the Congress is that it could give up its 5 seats when compared to the earlier general election. BJP has a big reason to cheer from the snap poll in this region as it increases its count from one to five.

18 % of the total respondents in Mumbai have voted for the social activist-turned political Arvind Kejriwal while 51 per cent have voted for BJP’s PM candidate Narendra Modi.

42 % of Delhi-NCR respondents feel Kejriwal is a better choice, while 45% have preferred Modi.

Rahul Gandhi has garnered 16 % of voters overall. 22 per cent prefer him in Mumbai while 11 per cent in Delhi-NCR.

So how come that 45% in delhi prefer modi while AAP gets 6 seats. Basically congress voters will also vote AAP. But bottom line, BJP has lost delhi's 6 seats for now. Can they get it back, I think they can.

I want to coin new term, Lutyeniged, means whatever your inclination, once you are accustomed to power brokers circles of New Delhi and wants to crave niceties like elite club memberships, bungalow in Lutyen zone with all fanfare.

Its a disease, where resistant can be found only in few personalities. I think amongst all political lot, BJP has more resistance to Lutyeniged Syndrome. Even commies are infected with it. The latest enterent to this disease club is Arvind Kejriwal. He wants a posh bungalow and camp office and one by one he is getting symptoms of Lutyeniged syndrome, i.e. Digit security (Z in case of AK), Blue Battis, etc.

Hindsight is always 20/20 but IMO we on BR should have tracked the various communist factions across India as they left their underground shelters and silently crawled into the AAP "Hells Keep". It might not be too late if we manage to track down the main mass of followers who should be making their moves soon. I wouldnt be surprised if the Mahendra Karma execution was the required nationwide trigger for all the comrades.

N.R. Narayana Murthy Joins Ford Foundation Board of Trustees
Narayan Murthy's Ford page

Ford Foundation: Managing dissent in India

The unease in sections of the intelligentsia over the spectacular rise of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the run-up to the Delhi elections has intensified with Arvind Kejriwal’s bizarre excuses to not form the Government despite unconditional support from the Congress. Since many persons have had deep reservations over the foreign funding of Kejriwal and others who have taken public positions on several issues, this may be the time to examine if the West is controlling dissent in India with a view to pushing its own agenda and promoting its corporate interests.

As some information regarding the American think tank, Ford Foundation, is already in the public domain, it may be pertinent to ask if certain persons and the causes they espouse draw strength from support by powerful Western agencies. As is well known, ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan was disgraced and professionally ruined because a Western power wanted India to stop work on cryogenics technology. He has recovered his public esteem only in recent weeks, and the full extent of the disgraceful conspiracy is yet to be revealed.

Certain well-connected non-government organisations (NGOs) are richly funded by the Indian Government as also Western agencies; their key officials behave as if they are at par with government and resist coming under the Right to Information Act to evade public accountability. A closer look at West-funded individuals and agencies is warranted on account of some recent developments.

Serious questions were first raised when Maharashtra activist Anna Hazare began a high decibel movement for a Jan Lokpal Bill under the banner of India Against Corruption. Hazare himself has received an award from the Atlanta-based CARE, which is part of the American establishment and often embedded with the military on occupation missions. His associate Kiran Bedi, former IPS officer, received the Rockefeller Foundation funded Magsaysay Award in 1994; and Arvind Kejriwal received a youth award that was funded by the Ford Foundation.

At the time of the Lokpal agitation, Kabir, an NGO run by Arvind Kejriwal and his close associate Manish Sisodia (the newly elected MLA from Patparganj), reportedly received grants totalling $3,97,000 from the Ford Foundation.


Besides Sisodia, between 2007 to 2011, some high profile persons who were recipients of the Foundation’s generosity include Indira Jaising, director of an NGO called Lawyers’ Collective which promotes human rights for marginalised people $12,40,000; Yogendra Yadav, fellow, Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (and front ranking leader of the AAP) $3,50,000; Pratap Bhanu Mehta, director, Centre for Policy Research $687,000; and Nandan Nilekani, president NCAER, $2,30,000.

As is well known, Nandan Nilekani persuaded the Government of India to permit him to implement a nationwide biometrics project for the entire population of India, at national expense, without Parliamentary sanction. Much has been written about this project, but it bears reiteration that this highly sensitive data is being maintained by private companies; both Nilekani and the Union Home Ministry have admitted that there are no foolproof safeguards in place to protect the data; the worldwide expose of snooping by US intelligence agencies into the highest offices of even friendly governments has left the Government of India unconcerned.

Subsequent attempts to link the Unique Identity-Aadhaar project with Central subsidies do not explain why sections of the population that are not availing of subsidies were forced into the project and why the Delhi Government made it mandatory for registration of property. Till this day, there is no clear objective behind the project, which continues at public expense, with Nilekani enjoying the rank of a Minister of State. Meanwhile, multiple points have been created where the data can be collected and leaked.

Yogendra Yadav, a CSDS scholar and psephologist, created a huge ruckus when the Human Resources Development Ministry sacked him as an advisor to the University Grants Commission when he joined the fledgling political party, AAP. He called it political vendetta. The moot point, however, is how persons intimately associated with Government and policy making bodies are permitted to avail of foreign funding and to wear multiple hats.

Most interesting are Pratap Bhanu Mehta and Indira Jaising, because they have suddenly taken a public position on the 2G judgment and Justice AK Ganguly at a time and in a manner that is distinctly odd.

In his column in the Indian Express on December 12, 2013, Pratap Bhanu Mehta criticised the Supreme Court judgment on Section 377. He has every right to his opinion, but it raises eyebrows when, amidst a long declamation on liberal values, he suddenly throws a stone at the Supreme Court judgment on the 2G spectrum scandal, and then moves on without any explanation. Mehta writes, “It is a bit graceless to single out individual judges, but then how else do we convey criticism of judgements and not have it get lost in an abstraction called the court? Many had pointed out that the much-feted 2G judgment was legally appalling…”

Readers will recall that Justice AK Ganguly and Justice GS Singhvi had cancelled 122 licences in the 2G scam in February 2012. That judgement is now being attacked at a time when the second judge on the bench, Mr Singhvi, has also just retired.

It is pertinent that from the time of the sensational allegation against Justice Ganguly, many in the legal fraternity have felt that the 2G judgment, in which many Indian and foreign corporates have high stakes, is at the root of his problems. Subramanian Swamy has said as much publicly, and this is the reason why some distinguished persons have come out in defence of the judge.

As the matter is still awaiting resolution, no more need be said. But it is startling that the Lawyer’s Collective director Indira Jaising, who is also Additional Solicitor General of India, should suddenly access and disclose part of the proceedings of the Supreme Court panel that investigated the allegation made by a law intern against Justice Ganguly. It is unthinkable that she could have got a copy from the Chief Justice of India; but copies were given to Justice Ganguly and the intern. Clearly some kind of shadow-boxing is afoot.

India needs to get serious about the dangers posed to the nation at multiple levels due to the easy access that foreigners and foreign agencies have at top levels of society and Government. Only recently, the Union Defence Ministry was shocked to learn that Army Chief General Bikram Singh accepted a US military award, the Legion of Merit, without Government clearance. General Singh was on a visit to America from December 2 to 5; India is planning to purchase M-777 ultra light howitzers and Javelin anti-tank missiles from the United States.

Qayyum (probably, his named is blurry), a 47 years old Indian, who loves to call himself Endian has donated INR 45,000 to AAP and taken the screenshots of form filling and then the payment process and then receiving the Transaction ID, inspires all the Pakistanis to donate at least INR 100 to AAP. And why does he sacrifice his two months’ salary to AAP? You can see his message at the remark box, مجھے یکین ہے کی آپ لوگ ہندوستان مے اسلامی ھقمت قیام کروگے
It means, “Mujhe Yakeen Hai Aaplog India Me Islami Huqumat Qayam Karogey (I am sure you guys will establish Islamic rule in India).

lets see who is trying to malign AAP:
1) “Batla House encounter is fake”
2) “Ishrat is innocent”
3) “Kashmir should be separated from India”
4) “We want Maulana Tauqeer to support AAP”
5) “Hindus are killing Kashmiris”
6) “We support the Communal Violence bill” (bill according to which Hindus are responsible for every riot, no matter who started it)

^^ if any of the above statement is made by BJP then I’ll agree that there is an attempt to malign AAP. If not then go ahead and vote for AAP but you are a traitor.

West had tried color revolutions in former Soviet union republics - Mixed results.
West had tried Islamik revolutions in Arab countries - It was a disaster from Libya to Syria.

They need something more potent than this, so they relied upon the Communism, but they added their own flavors like anti-corruption, anti-establishment (which were plaguing all developing countries of the world) moment and they are making a new template in India called AAP. If it succeeds, then they will use that template all over the world.

The ultimate aim of this is subversion of nation-states.

Raman Singh slams Prashant Bhushan's statement on Maoists
Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh on Monday slammed AAP leader Prashant Bhushan for his remarks on referendum on deployment of forces in Maoist-hit areas and said he should ask naxals to stop violence instead of making such statements.

"Prashant Bhushan should ask Maoists to give up bullets and adopt the ballot," Singh told reporters here.

Arvind Kejriwal denies reports of Prashant Bhushan wanting referendum in Naxal-hit areas
NEW DELHI: Defending AAP leader Prashant Bhushan, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said, "I asked him about it (comment on Referendum in Naxal-hit areas), he said he hadn't said anything like that."

Jokes on Kejriwal's honesty go viral on social media
Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal has become a top trending topic on Twitter for no apparent reason. The Twitter trend also resulted in viral memes on Facebook.

Tweets with the #YoKejriwalSoHonest tag began to appear late on Friday night. The hashtag #YoKejriwalSoHonest is topping the trends on the microblogging site.

His jokes have now become more popular than Alok Nath's.

Angry India Inc hits out at AAP's decision to scrap FDI in Delhi

India Inc on Monday expressed strong displeasure over the Delhi government's decision to withdraw approval to FDI in multibrand retail, saying the move was likely to hinder foreign investments flowing into the country.

"It is unfortunate that the Delhi government has chosen not to allow FDI in multibrand retail in Delhi. This will discourage international retailers planning to enter India," chairman of CII National Retail Committee J Suresh told PTI.

In a significant decision on Monday, Aam Aadmi Party government withdrew the approval given by the previous Sheila Dikshit dispensation to foreign direct investment (FDI) in multibrand retail in Delhi.

Terming the Delhi government's decision as anti-investment and one that sends a wrong signal to foreign investors, industry body Assocham said: "If one party reverses the decision of its rival dispensation upon change of guards, the policy and political risks for global investors would definitely increase in India, scaring them away".

To be fair to ABP News, on their website as well as channel, they repeatedly are flashing that Modi is way ahead of anyone in the PM race and in Delhi and Mumbai also he is ahead of Kejru. They also say that while delhi seems to go the aap way, Mumbai all set to go to BJP in the same breath.

Anyway according to twitterati, Cvoter and csds will be releasing their all india projections before republic day. So expect AAP/Kejru to lose quite some traction in media, becos both these surveys are going to project BJP alone getting close to 200 with some 40-45 seats in UP.

I feel sorry for Kumar Vishwas. I believe the guy is sincere and genuinely believes he is doing something good. But he will be eaten up and thrown away like a chewing gum by rancid leftists. Kejriwal will dump him soon after GE once the chewing gum is no longer sweet. Mallika Sarabhai is already out with her attack on Vishwas.

In a way its good that AAP has become a vessel for all the ill that plagues India. All the scorpions will come out now. It gives a good opportunity to kill their credibility in a single shot all at once.

^^ I think it was a joint venture between ABP & Star network. At that time it was called as Star News. But then Star is now out of the news business in India and hence channel is now renamed as ABP News.

Rahul Mehta, a common wrote: Also , a lot can change in 4 months. Before 1947, the nationalists were put in prison or faced threat of imprisonment. Today, the nationalists are free, but most citizens are in "prison" created by paid-mediamen paid by American-elitemen !! And since citizens dont even know that they are in prison, and that that prison gives them lot of entertainment, it is NOT easy to get them out of prison. It is voluminous task for the nationalists to free citizens from this prison.

So say N out of 100 voters have said that they will vote for NaMo. Now how many may get swayed by paid-media in coming 4 months? Hard to predict, But even it is 5%, then you know that American-elitemen will win this election.


And this what Dilbu Sir, not so common I presume, said 8 minutes later at 7:00pm

Dilbu wrote:In my office (phata finance industry yum yen cee) before 6 months it was a big yes for NaMo. Very few takers for baba even though I came across a few non political type motormas who think Baba taking over CON will make everything right. After AAP victory in Delhi a few of earlier NAMO followers have moved into AAP camp. Revolution and all that is coming according to them. I sometimes see heated debate in cafeteria about Kejriwal as the TV there usually is always on NDTV and these days it is 24x7 talking about AAP. Largely NaMo is still the frontrunner but that outright yes for him has been dented recently.


Now how come NOT even one activist of my nincompoop Right to Recall Group has moved to AAP? I have only 300-400 or may be 1000 activists across India. But none , not even one, has been impressed by AAP even by 1%. They have been attending AAP meetings since IAC days, but come back by shaking AAP-members faith and their anti-AAP, anti-AK beliefs remains intact. While I smell that too many Bharat Swabhiman Trust workers and even RSS workers are becoming AAPians. IOW, it is NOT easy to make a junior immune to paid media propaganda. For all its size, RSS-apex could not even make its own members immune to paid-media poison. So RSS-members taking commons out of paid-media poison is not going to happen.

Btw, my anti-AK video crossed 110,000 views !! Pls see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5vH5VZX6XI . And there 8 copies of this video across youtube and total views crossed 200,000 !! God alone knows WhatApp count !! I hope I have reduced at least 1000 AAP votes if not more.

When I tell this to friends, they call me conspiracy theorist and laugh at me. But I realize you are right


Gabber Singh told me in 1979 -- Jo dar gaya samjo mar haya . Well, if you are afraid of getting laughed out, you lost. In activism the FIRST thing you need to cultivate is immunity to fear of being laughed out. I am not bragging, but you can see anti-RM-elements laughing at me all the time. And this this is nothing, in 2002-2004 when I was writing against corruption/nepotism of Indian judges from supreme to lower courts, and explaining Jury System as solution, almost every pro-judge anti-Jury element used to throw mud at me 24*7 basis. Even today, when I write less than 5 posts a week in only 2 threads, you see anti-RM-element asking all to ignore my posts.

So yes, if you tell FACT to people that NaMo is being forced by MNC-owners to give NDA tickets to MNC-agents in BJP, then most people would like to shut you down. Because it makes their favorite hero appear weak before MNC-owners than too inside India !! Well, fact is fact. NaMo despite all his might and posture is no match against Rockefellar and Rothschilde. And RSS is puny compared to Vatican machineray and protestent churches which are now more powerful, organized and resourceful than Vatican. Earlier the nationalists know these FACTS, better. Delay can be deadly.

So danger is real but fear is imaginary. And pls copy-paste all famous dialogs on fear. But pls work to spread these facts asap.

Research is consistent with RM-ji's hypothesis of voter disengagement after a dose of direct democracy.. but for other reasons (than governance).

Ellie Shockley will be giving a research talk on January 23rd at 3:30pm in the Commons at Batten. Ellie is currently a postdoc at the University of Nebraska Center for Public Policy and got her PhD. in Psychology from University of Chicago.

Power to the people? Cognitive and motivational mechanisms of disengagement from direct democracy

Direct democracy ostensibly brings power to change laws to ordinary citizens. Understanding such self-rule is timely and important given the profound dissatisfaction with representation citizens currently report (e.g., frustration regarding the inertia in Congress). However, state ballot initiatives used in direct democracy may alienate citizens because the language is often complex, perhaps causing citizens to abstain and vote “no” if they vote at all. Given confounds in the observational literature and the shortage of experiments, we tested causal pathways of these theorized effects. Our experiments suggest that higher ballot initiative complexity suppresses political engagement: Lowered policy comprehension leads to lower perceived efficacy, greater reported likelihood of abstaining from voting, and a motivated increase in trust in government institutions. Furthermore, the low processing fluency of a complex policy results in a less positive attitude toward the policy, which in turn causes a greater reported likelihood of voting against the policy if one votes at all. Thus, the form that direct democracy often takes ironically encourages citizens to outsource policymaking to elites and to maintain the status quo.
