Uma Bharati: MP fared alright but her exile reinforced the image of BJP as a party of upper castes only, with no place for OBC leaders

Madan Lal Khurana: Everyone knows the story of Delhi BJP

Jayaprakash Narayan has put out a document outlining the thinking process on pre poll alliances. Reading between the lines and the lines as well, looks like he is edging towards BJP.

This was known a long time ago.

Check out the castes of the leaders, tdp - CBN, kamma
BJP(seemandhra) - Venkaih Naidu, Kamma
LokSatta - Jayaprakash, Kamma

Infact during 2009, JP and chiru was given a big boost by eenadu Ramoji Rao to cut CBN to size. His expectation was CBN would just fall short of majority, so that CBN would not have exclusive control. Their cutting plan worked too well, because congress also gave these same people boost.

But this time TDP would have a very very tough fight. So Ramoji Rao and CBN are trying to get together these disparate factions. If you see coverage, Pawan was given a very high coverage by these same news channels. Also that explains why the telangana BJP is not easily coming on board.

So I personally would not be surprised if BJP, TDP, LokSatta, janasena come together or have tacit understanding

Highlights of BJP's 5th list

Modi from Vadodara (for as much as i hate the fact that he is contesting from 2 seats, baroda is a good choice as central gujarat is one of the congress holds remaining in Gujarat)

Hemamalini from Mathura

Ashwini Kumar Choubey from Buxar

NO TICKET to JASWANT SINGH (very good move) so far (hopefully he wont get one)

Sushree Heena Gaveet from Nandurbar (She is the daughter of the NCP MLA from that area who happens to a Maharashtra Minister)

Shyama Charan Gupt replaces Kesrinath Tripati in Allahabad (good move imho)

Kirti Vardhan Singh from Gonda is an awesome choice (beni prasad verma is the sitting MP i think)

Gujarat list looks very good, 24-25 is a reasonable expectation

Jayant has not done anything for city and there is big NaMo wave so its going to be really easy for Hema malini.

From Gujarat candidates have been nominated from 24/25 seats. Amit Shah is not among them. From UP too 69/80 candidates are known. No Amit Shah.

Was hoping from Somnath (Junagadh), but that is too much Yindoo signalling, I suppose. Will take Vadodra.

Hemamalini from Mathura


Is she a good choice?

Ashwini Kumar Choubey from Buxar


Phew! So they placated him! This used to be Lalmuni Chaubey's seat, but Lalmuni is eyeing Bihar politics. Good to see that BJP is fielding Ashwini from Buxar.

Shyama Charan Gupt replaces Kesrinath Tripati in Allahabad (good move imho)


Shyama Charan Gupta was in BJP for a very long time (till 99, IIRC). He got fed up of doing thankless groundwork for Murli Manohar Joshi without getting anything in return, went to SP, defeated his former mentor. Good that he is back in BJP. He is an industrialist, IIRC.

Sir ji,

The rumor was that after Modi becomes PM, Amit Shah will be CM. So i dont see him fighting LS elections. MSM will love to project Anandi as Namo's successor (she maybe good, but i believe Amit Shah will be the next GJ CM)

Overall, i think barring a few goofups, they have got it mostly right. Now back to square 1. They all need to campaign the heck out in each of their seats and Modi needs to do one more blitzkrieg, he should consider some radically different message, everyone across india must have seen 1 or 2 of his rallies, so to get the attention, he needs to change the message (maybe talk even more about what his govt will do etc..)

I hope so, candidate selection is only one part of the game, this is a wave election and 2 maintain the wave, he needs to keep going. Maybe Vasundhara, Shivraj, Raman Singh also need to do a bunch of rallies outside their states (just thinking loud), but one state where I would focus is Maharashtra and maybe also the Northern Belt (say haryana)

Shashi Tharoor: India minister alleges 'vilification' by rivals

Indian minister Shashi Tharoor has lodged a complaint with the Election Commission accusing his political opponents of a "vilification" campaign. Mr Tharoor, who is running in the general election, says his rivals are trying to portray him as anti-women.His wife, Sunanda Pushkar, was found dead in January. Doctors said she may have died from a drug overdose.The couple were embroiled in a row days before her death over Twitter messages suggesting he was having an affair.Police are investigating whether the overdose by Ms Pushkar, who was found dead in a hotel room, was deliberate or accidental.Mr Tharoor is India's junior minister for human resource development and represents the governing Congress party.
He filed his complaint on Tuesday to the chief electoral officer in the southern state of Kerala, where he is fighting to retain his seat in the Lok Sabha - the lower house of parliament. Elections in India are due over nine phases in April and May.The minister has alleged that his opponents from both sides of the political spectrum are engaged in a "sustained campaign of vilification and defamation".
"[They are] intended to portray me as someone who harms women, and using false stories about the tragic death of my wife to assassinate my character. This is a desperate ploy by those who have no answers to my development work," Mr Tharoor said in the complaint.The minister's complaint follows comments by communist politicians VS Sunil Kumar and M Vijaya Kumar on regional television networks.Ms Pushkar's death shocked many in India. A few days before she died, a public row broke out between the couple when seemingly private messages between Mr Tharoor and Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar were published on his Twitter feed.Ms Pushkar, 52, said she had gone into her husband's account and published the messages, accusing Ms Tarar of stalking her husband - an allegation denied by the Pakistani journalist.Ms Pushkar and Mr Tharoor later insisted they were happily married and blamed "unauthorised :shock: tweets" for causing confusion.\Mr Tharoor, a former UN diplomat, was forced to resign from his first ministerial position in 2010 amid controversy over his involvement in bidding for a cricket team.He was appointed junior minister for human resource development in 2012.

Jats are the most numerically preponderant community in Mathura. This is why Ajit Singh and his party was strong in this constituency.

But then this is Tsunamo season. So anything can happen.

Secondly Hema Malini by dint of her marriage to Dharmendra, now belongs to Jat family. This factor will also help BJP

Sir, UP CM needs to be someone who has roots in UP, BJP guys may like for excellent backroom work for UP BJP, but UP CM has to be someone young and dynamic from UP BJP unit itself. Amit Shah can easily become Gujarat CM. He can be India's Home minister if he likes, will be one awesome day if that happens :rotfl:

If NaMo had taken Somnath, then later when he has to give up the one seat in Gujarat, it would be difficult making the excuse that he has taken a spiritual call to make Varanasi his dharma-bhumi!

Choosing between Vadodara and Varanasi is easy for a bleeding heart Hindu Nationalist!

:D Now the charlatan Shashi Tharoor is playing innocent, and even complaining to the Election Commission. These INC fellows are the same in every part of the country. A campaign is hardly needed to "vilify" this already vile and despicable fellow. His conduct over the years makes it amply clear that he is a charlatan of first rank in both his personal and political life.

On top of that he has been completely useless as an MP and has done nothing except give speeches and empty promises. He made tall promises of developing the city on the lines of Barcelona, but obvious issues like bankrupt city corporation, poor garbage collection, lack of employment, increasing "moonshiner" menace, etc etc did not have any importance for him.

Instead of serving the citizens of Trivandrum, he has been trying to milk his cultivated habit of sophisticated fakery to make an extra buck. He has started some sort of Mom-and-Pop (well, just Pop for now after the last Mom got killed off) "English skills for professionals" institute in Technopark area of Trivandrum.

I call upon the citizens of Trivandrum to kick this unwelcome and dirty fellow out of the city in 2014 and send him packing to north KL or some other place. I am sure he would be thrashed in any election in Palakkad where he is originally from, since the people over there probably know him only too well. The gullible TVM folks have been taken for a ride, and Tharoor's game is up now.

BJP finalises names for 6 TN seats; PMK-DMDK row almost resolved

On the eve of BJP president Rajnath Singh’s arrival here on Thursday to formally announce the party’s alliance in Tamil Nadu, the State unit finalised the list of candidates for six of the eight Lok Sabha constituencies allocated to it in the seat-sharing talks with allies.

The tussle between two of the allies, the PMK and the DMDK, over seats was also nearly resolved.

On Wednesday night, the PMK was able to get seven — Dharmapurai, Krishnagiri, Arni, Arakkonam, Chidambaram (Reserved), Mayiladuthurai and Vellore — of the eight constituencies on its wish list. Negotiations were continuing for the Tiruvannamalai or Cuddalore seat.

In the BJP, its choice of seats has narrowed the chances of several senior leaders aspiring to contest. A State Election Committee source said Tamil Nadu BJP president Pon. Radhakrishnan would enter the fray in Kanyakumari, which seat he won in 1999 but lost in the subsequent elections.

H. Raja has to settle for Sivaganga
The former State president, C.P. Radhakrishnan, has been allotted Coimbatore, and other senior leaders, L. Ganesan and H. Raja, will be fielded in Chennai (South) and Sivaganga respectively. Mr. Raja had to settle for Sivaganga though he preferred Ramanathapuram, sources said.

While S. Gurumurthy, a youth wing leader, has been renominated in the Nilgiris (Reserved), which he lost in 2009, Ramanathapuram, according to the sources, is likely to be allotted to D. Kuppuramu, an RSS functionary and convener of the Rameswaram Rama Sethu Protection Movement.

A senior leader said the party could not finalise the names for Vellore and Thanjavur as “they had to be adjusted with the preference of the allies.”

“A reworked list was submitted to the central leadership on Wednesday. Mr. Singh is likely to announce the candidates for all eight constituencies on Thursday,” said the leader. Mr. Pon. Radhakrishnan and Mr. Muralidhar Rao had taken the list to Delhi for approval.

Tamilisai left in the lurch
This means senior leader and national secretary Tamilisai Soundararajan has been left in the lurch as her preferred constituency, Sriperumbudur, is likely to be allotted to the MDMK. In a similar case, another prominent leader, Vanathi Srinivasan, could not be accommodated in Coimbatore or Tirupur. It is unclear whether she will be given any other seat.


I feel bad for Tamilisai Soundararajan. I heard her speaking Tamil during NaMo's Trichy Rally. Man, man, man! This lady can speak! She is a rapid-fire machinegun!

I have a feeling BJP negotiators Pon Radhakrishnan, etc. may not have negotiated in all honesty and fairness. I think they have tried to cut down other possible rivals in TN BJP.

Soundararajan is one case. Salem seems to have gone down really bad with the local BJP Salem team especially as they were promised the Lok Sabha seat after Ramesh's murder by the Jihadis. And there were noises that DMDK was not keen on Salem but were given it nevertheless.

To bolster Atriji's comments on Pawar
NCP poaches 6 candidates to win seats

PUNE: The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) has poached six candidates from other parties so far, so that party president Sharad Pawar can play a decisive role, post election. The party stressed on the candidates' ability to win to give them the Lok Sabha tickets.

"The future of the NCP is by and large linked to its showing in Maharashtra and Pawar's political future hinges crucially on the 2014 polls. He is playing a high stakes political game in Maharashtra, with unrest against the Congress-NCP government in the state and the Centre. This is going to be a difficult election for us and hence the party has decided to set aside demands of NCP workers and nominate outsiders from some constituencies," an NCP MP said, requesting anonymity.


{This kind of clarity is not seen in BJP supporters even here!}


The party is contesting 21 of the 48 Lok Sabha seats in Maharashtra, while alliance partner Congress will put up candidates in 27 constituencies. The NCP got eight seats in the 2009 polls, but wants to achieve double figures this time. Hence, setting aside party workers' demand for nominations, Pawar decided to give tickets to "outsiders" who can win seats.

The NCP has nominated rebel Shiv Sena MP Anand Paranjape from Kalyan-Dombivli and Sena spokesperson Rahul Narvekar from Maval constituency. In Ahmednagar, it has given a ticket to Rajiv Rajale of the Congress, while in Kolhapur the party has chosen Dhananjay Mahadik, who has in the past hobnobbed with all political parties, including the Congress and BJP.

In Raver, the NCP has nominated Manish Jain as its candidate. Jain was elected to the legislative council as an independent candidate after defeating the NCP candidate. In Amravati, the party is relying on independent MLA Ravi Rana's strength. Rana's wife Navneet is contesting on an NCP ticket.

Even after expressing open dissent with the party leadership, sitting NCP MP Udayanraje Bhosale has been renominated from the Satara Lok Sabha constituency. Bhosale has distanced himself from the party since 2009 and has repeatedly challenged the party leadership. He has said that he won the last election on his own strength. His "strength" in the constituency made him the NCP candidate.

However, Pawar's strategy to poach candidates from other parties failed in Hatkanangle constituency, which is represented by Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghatana (SSS) chief Raju Shetty. In 2009, Shetty defeated the NCP chief's confidante Nivedita Mane.

With no NCP leader ready to contest against Shetty and Pawar failing to lure leaders from other parties, the NCP decided to leave the constituency for the Congress. Senior leader Kallappa Awade is contesting the seat.
:mrgreen:



Now muraliravi, and Atri,

How will Pawar fare with his 21 candidates?

BJP attempts to placate Advani after he conveys displeasure over Gandhinagar Lok Sabha seat
NEW DELHI: The BJP leadership tonight tried to placate L K Advani who expressed his displeasure over the party's decision to field him from Gandhinagar Lok Sabha constituency despite his desire to shift to Bhopal.

Senior BJP leaders Sushma Swaraj and Nitin Gadkari met Advani at his residence and spent about 45 minutes in their bid to persuade the BJP veteran who is reluctant to contest from Gandhinagar and instead wanted to be fielded from Bhopal.

Senior BJP leaders Sushma Swaraj and Nitin Gadkari met Advani at his residence and spent about 45 minutes in their bid to persuade the BJP veteran who is reluctant to contest from Gandhinagar and instead wanted to be fielded from Bhopal.

After meeting Advani, both Swaraj and Gadkari went to BJP president Rajnath Singh's house where they conveyed the party patriarch's unhappiness over the Central Election Committee's decision against his wishes.

The BJP patriarch is of the view that just as the party has fielded Modi from Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat, Arun Jaitley from Punjab and Rajnath Singh from Lucknow, he be fielded along with Swaraj from Madhya Pradesh to help the BJP "maximise the gains" in the area.

He has also questioned the CEC's decision to accept the proposal from Gujarat to field him from Gandhinagar and not considering a similar proposal from Madhya Pradesh unit of the party to field him from Bhopal.

Advani is understood to have conveyed to the party leadership his desire to exercise his option of selecting a seat for himself, like many other BJP leaders have done.

The BJP patriarch is of the view that just as the party has fielded Modi from Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat, Arun Jaitley from Punjab and Rajnath Singh from Lucknow, he be fielded along with Swaraj from Madhya Pradesh to help the BJP "maximise the gains" in the area.

He has also questioned the CEC's decision to accept he proposal from Gujarat to field him from Gandhinagar and not considering a similar proposal from Madhya Pradesh unit of the party to field him from Bhopal.

Advani has made his displeasure clear to the party leadership which is now finding it difficult to prevail over him and put an end to the unseemly controversy over his choice constituency.

LK Advani, once the leader of factional politics, now a lonely figure
:

The man who began his career as a 20-year-old RSS pracharak of Karachi, entered electoral politics through Delhi Metropolitan Council.

Advani used the RSS to ensure that he is named deputy PM. The team and the leaders he created were his biggest strength. They owed their rise to him and remained loyal. Uma Bharti, Kalyan Singh or Govindacharya, the loyalists who took on Vajpayee for Advani were later bitter about their leader offering them little solace.

But the second rung leaders' complete dependence on Advani was over once RSS chose Modi over Advani as the PM candidate. The diktat was clear: those who do not agre had no seat at the high table.

A factional leader has very little to do without his faction. Now, all he is left with is just one or two of the old loyalists. Everybody else has fallen in line with the RSS decision.

Both LKA and SS are trying to find refuge from the NaMo tsunami with SSC. In return, they will prop him up as an alternate power center and a rival to NaMo in BJP.

has the Congress declared its candidates yet, or is it waiting for BJP to finish declaring its candidates first?

BJP, HJC on break-up path; Riding on Modi wave, BJP plans to go solo in Haryana

TThe change in BJP's stance comes within months of leaders like Sushma Swaraj reiterating that the parties will fight the upcoming Lok Sabha and assembly elections jointly, and shows the increasing confidence of the BJP leadership over the poll outcome. The party has also strengthened its base in Haryana by pulling some Congress heavyweights to its side in the past few months.
