Q8: Which Coalition will you vote for in the National Elections
In the Junior Vikatan’s article it is mentioned that AAP was not given as an option in the questionnaire and respondents questioned why it is not included as an option. And there is a vague statement in the article that most people who support BJP seem to support AAP as well. I am unable to uderstand the point JV is trying to make by mentioning that.
However, happy to see that, regional parties are not favoured much and reduced to their traditional core vote percentage of 22%.

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.
Today the Pakistani online forums are campaigning for donations for AAP. The posts show a screenshot of the donation process by a man who works for Gulf Pakistan as seen from the screenshot, but a resident of India, has donated his two months’ salary for AAP. 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.
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.
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."
CHANDIGARH: AAP leader Prashant Bhushan had made no reference to referendum on security forces in Naxal-hit areas, the party's leader Yogendra Yadav said.
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.

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".

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 7:00pmDilbu 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.
