24 ghanta is the commie channel, so take it with a pinch of salt.
How is it possible that EPIC and voter slips are being snatched when the polling hasn't yet begun?
It is quite possible that slum dons on TMC payroll are doing that in the slums under their watch and in that case the votes getting affected are from commie and TMC's own kitty.

Good performance with Dalits and Muslims - but would have expected more from Brahmins. Hope the actual results surpass..

What does this translate to in overall vote share or seats - any idea ?

He will be useful.
Former CBI spokesperson and ex-AIR chief, G Mohanty, to join BJP
by Newest, timesofindia.indiatimes.com
May 10th 2014
NEW DELHI: Former CBI spokesperson and retired Indian Information Service (IIS) officer, G Mohanty, is expected to join the BJP by Saturday evening.

Mohanty will be the fourth senior retired bureaucrat who joined the party in the past four months. The three others who formally joined the BJP include former Union home secretary R K Singh, ex-RAW chief Sanjeev Tripathi and India's former United Nations permanent representative (UNPR) Hardeep Puri.

Mohanty, who retired as director general, directorate of advertising and visual publicity (DAVP) - an influential arm of the government which takes call on releasing advertisements to different media across the country-may be inducted into the BJP's strategic action committee comprising many other top retired officers.

Sixty-year-old Mohanty -an IIT Kharagpur alumnus -was CBI spokesperson for nearly six years during 2002-08. He had also served as director general of the All India Radio during 2010-12.

Sources said that Mohanty - who has vast experience of handling many important issues within the ministry of information and broadcasting - will be a key member of the party's strategic action committee which was set in March to advise the BJP on variety of issues.

Subramanian Swamy is the chairperson of the Committee which has journalist M J Akbar, former RAW chief Sanjeev Tripathi, Lt. Gen. Surendra Pratap Tanwar and ex-envoy Hardeep Puri as members.

Any word on how the BJP-RSS meet went? It must be significant as they would be exchanging notes and coming up with some plans. Doing an "what-if" analysis based on the last polling phase.

Saars, decisions have been made. Just have to wait how it all plays out. 12th-16th, very interesting days those will be.

Muscle...Muslims...and Rahul's marriage..

This party has become has got it wanted. Muslim party.. No wonder even Dalits,OBCs,Yadavs are even going towards BJP. It is unfortunate that 25-30% of Brahmins support it.

In Benaras, where almost everyone has a view to share about the on-going elections, even children spout political wisdom. Like hundreds of others in Gol Gadda, 11-year-old Neha Parveen has been ignoring the angry rays of the sun as she waits for a glimpse of Rahul.

Standing on the terrace of the local madrasa, Neha -- who has three younger sisters and two younger brothers -- had a few pithy comments to make about voters, politicians and politics.

"Musalmaans," she says with confidence, "will vote only for the panja (the hand, which is the Congress's electoral symbol) because Narendra Modi is not a man to be trusted." She says Modi is only interested in the welfare of the Hindu community and must be defeated.


As for Kejriwal, he would not be too happy with the way in which this little girl dismisses him.

Little Neha's eloquence may stem from the discussions she has heard in her home and her neighbourhood, but her thoughts clearly had a lot of supporters in the vicinity


A couple of hours later, the Rahul rally arrives at Sonarpura, led by a number of testosterone-charged bike riders -- some of whom have squeezed four onto a bike.

The party workers in Sonarpura have been charging themselves up with anti-Modi pro-Rahul and Rai slogans; occasionally, carried away by the slogans, they break into a little dance.

Congress candidate Ajai Rai, who is considered a bahubali (strongman) in Varanasi, has a tough fight on his hands.

While the BJP and Congress warriors have peppered the streets of this most-watched constituency, Rai has been pleading for support from the Gandhi family.

Congress wants to stay in power; it doesn't matter how, with whose support. Because it is a colonial system/structure all the way in and out.

Now the social engineering is to show that Muslims and Christians are on its side or they are forced to support Panja.

Congress is trying to appease the Muslim/Christian fundamentalists by making left leaning Hindu majority as their slaves/dhimmis for all practical purposes. Secularism is the word, philosophy & tool to fool Hindu majority to think this is somehow in their interests and worse IT IS true Hinduism/Dharma.

There are two solutions to it.

One is Congress getting back in power in India and bringing (Idea of) Pakistan to India.

Second is sending Congress & its backers out of India to Pakistan (if they are allowed there). That is what Congress Mukth Bharat means.

The Indian Republic: For Whom the Bell Tolls in 2014—In the South?
Polling ended in the five-phased elections in the south on May 7th, and we would know the results, with a degree of certainty on May 12th, when the exit poll results would be out, and with certainty on the 16th, when the votes are counted. However, you can say with a good deal of accuracy—barring a miracle, like tampering of EVMs on a massive scale—that the Congress is in for a bashing in 2014.

Paradoxically, this bash-up could happen, unlike in the north and the west, without even the so-called Modi-wave touching the shores of the south. And if the wave breaches the seawalls, the Congress’ plight could be worse.

Congress and its allies won 82 of the 131 seats at stake in the south in 2009. If opinion polls are any indicator, the UPA would be hard put to retain even one-third that figure. For it to reach the half-way mark, it has to do exceedingly well in the Telengana region of Andhra Pradesh, the reason why it split the state.

Kerala was the first to vote in the south, on Tenth of April. The voting percentage was marginally higher this time, up from 73.37, in 2009, to 73.8. The UDF, of which the Congress is a constituent, won 16 of the 20 seats in 2009. For that to take place in 2014, the BJP’s vote-share has to go up significantly, without winning a seat. If that happens, the worst hit would be the left, which traditionally thrives on the Hindu vote. The minorities, who constitute 45 per cent of the population, are expected to stay with the UDF.

Polling took place on the 17th of April in Karnataka. The voting percentage was significantly higher at 67.28, against 58.81, in 2009. The BJP did exceedingly well in 2009, bagging 19 of the 28 seats, the Congress picking up six and the JD-S three. Opinion polls are divided about the outcome in 2004. While some predict that the BJP would win a majority of the seats, others say that the Congress would get 14 to 15. Only a Modi-wave can reverse the trend for the BJP, which did badly in the 2013 Assembly elections. The Congress won comfortably then.

Tamil Nadu went to the polls on 24th of April. So did Pondicherry for its lone seat. The voting percentage was 73.67 in 2014, against 72.98 last time. In 2009, the DMK and the Congress, in alliance, won 18 and eight respectively of the total of 39 seats. The AIADMK won nine, while the other four were picked up by small parties. Normally, it is said that the state is a psephologist’s nightmare, as the Tamils try to keep their options as secretive as possible. The situation is made worse this time, with the two big Dravidian parties, the AIADMK and the DMK, not seeking any alliances with the national parties. The BJP has tried to make the best of this situation by cobbling together an alliance with smaller parties, like Vijayakant’s DMDK, Vaiko’s MDMK, the PMK, and an assortment of one-man parties. The alliance is banking heavily on the Modi factor to break the four-decade old grip of the AIADMK and the DMK on the Tamil Nadu electorate.

During these decades, the Congress hand was sought by the AIADMK and the DMK, in the belief that the incremental votes the national party brought was enough for their success. The party has fallen on such hard times that the two Dravidian parties did not deign to touch it with a barge-pole this time. The UPA’s poor performance at the centre, coupled with the Sri Lankan Tamil factor, has rendered the Congress almost a non-entity this time. Its only hope lies in Kanniyakumari, the Christian-dominated district. Ms Sonia Gandhi’s lone rally in TN was held here, and, by all accounts, it was a grand success. The BJP’s state president, Pon Radhakrishnan, is in the fray here. The AIADMK, the DMK and the CPI-M have fielded Christian candidates, while Mr. S.P. Udayakumar, the church-back anti-nuclear activist, is the AAP candidate. Mr. H. Vasanthakumar, a prominent businessman, is the Congress candidate. If the Christians vote strategically—as they usually do—to defeat the BJP, Mr. Vasanthakumar should win, despite being a Hindu.

In Pondicherry, the Congress candidate is Mr. V. Narayanasamy, the Minister for State in the Prime Minister’s Office. He faces a formidable challenge from the BJP-backed candidate, Mr. R. Radhakrishnan, the former speaker of the Puducherry Assembly. Mr. Radhakrishnan is the candidate of the ruling All India NR Congress (AINRC).

We finally come to Andhra Pradesh, which gave the Congress a whopping 33 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats in 2009. The state, as I mentioned earlier, was bifurcated on the eve of polls, with the Congress’ eyes solely on the 17 Lok Sabha seats in the Telengana region, which went to polls on April 30th. Here again, the Congress’ calculations could not have gone more wrong. It imagined that the TRS would come on all fours, begging for an alliance, if not an outright merger. Mr. K. Chandrasekhara Rao, the TRS leader, is no pushover. He knew the Congress was in a bad shape throughout the country. Any merger or alliance with it would render him a persona non grata with the next government. He made the Congress believe that he would merge the TRS with it, ensured the Telengana bill was passed in parliament, and then led it down the garden-path.

If the Congress bags even seven or eight seats in the Telengana region, it should be extremely happy. It is locked in multi-cornered contests with the TRS and the BJP-TDP combine. Polling here too was on the high side, with 72 per cent voting this time, against 67.71 per cent in 2009.

The Congress’ fortunes are by far the worst in the Coastal districts and Rayalaseema, the Seemandhra duo that constitutes the residual state of AP. “Show me the money,” asked Congressmen, reports said, when they were asked by the high command to contest the polls. The high command, however, told them that money would be given only to candidates with a winning chance. Probably one such lucky person was the Congress candidate from Tirupati, Mr. Chinta Mohan, a six-time MP. The popular Telugu daily, Eenadu, released a series of pictures, showing him address a crowd. A dozen Sumos, packed with his supporters, would go before his convoy started, disgorge their passengers at a spot, where Mr. Mohan would arrive, deliver his speech and leave. The crowd would then be served refreshments at a nearby watering-hole before being driven to the next venue.

Pity Ms. Sonia Gandhi, who was not given such imaginative support, when she addressed her only meeting in AP. Guntur was the selected town. It has a significant Christian population, though not to the extent as in Kanniyakumari in TN. Yet, only 7,000 people turned up for the rally. Newspapers prominently displayed photographs of the rally, focusing on the empty chairs. Mr. K. Chiranjeevi was the Congress’ sole torch-bearer this time. The popular film star founded the Praja Rajya Party before the 2009 elections, won 18 seats, and then merged it with the Congress. How long he will stay with the party after its expected debacle is a debatable point.

Chiranjeevi’s younger brother, Pawan Kalyan, another popular Telugu star, recently founded the Jana Sena, but the party did not contest the elections. Instead, he campaigned vigorously for the BJP-TDP combine, saying that he wants Mr. Narendra Modi to be PM. Initially, he did not back the TDP, but relented, after Mr. Chandrababu Naidu met him and sought his support. The BJP-TDP combine is banking on his charisma, besides the Modi factor, to prevail over the YSR Congress, founded by Mr. Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy. Mr. Reddy is the son of the late Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, the former CM, whose death in 2009 led to the chain of events that ultimately resulted in the formation of a separate Telengana state.

It is a battle royal between the two parties, with the Congress and the Jai Samaikandhra Party of the Mr. N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, the last CM of united AP, bringing up the rear. Voter turn-out in Seemandhra, which went to polls on May 7th, the last phase in the south, was around 80 per cent, against 76 per cent in 2009. The high turnout could be due to the fact that simultaneous elections to the Assembly were held in all three regions.

The YSR Congress had swept the by-elections that were held in the region in June 2012, winning 15 of the 17 seats to the state assembly and the Lok Sabha seat from Nellore. That was nearly two years ago, and much water has flown under the bridge since. Opinion polls are divided on the outcome, with some favouring the BJP-TDP combine and some the YSR Congress. But we don’t have to wait for long to find out the strength of these parties. The reality is only a week away.

Mamta will never join nda. This is known by her language. Muslim goes back to left if she does that and she will be one ter Bengal cm then. Modi will not need outside allies, possibly 10 which he can get from anywhere.

mukhtar ansari
The mafia don has decided to contest from Ghosi as a candidate of the Qaumi Ekta Dal, after announcing his support to the Congress' Ajay Rai in Varanasi. An MLA from Mau, Ansari had given a tough fight to former BJP president Murli Manohar Joshi in Varanasi in 2009. Presently lodged in Agra Central Jail for his alleged involvement in the murder of former BJP MLA Krishnanand Rai, he has been granted 10 days' parole to campaign for his election.


So question is, who is muslims going to vote for? Congress or AAP? Or will the vote get split?(which is what I'm hoping for)

Muslims started riot acc to this article from T0I

MEERUT: At least 30 persons were injured in brick-batting and three suffered gun shots injuries in the walled city's Teer Gran area on Saturday. One Shubham Rastogi, who suffered a bullet wound on head, was declared brain dead by doctors at the hospital.

Trouble began after in charge of a masjid started construction of a concrete fence around a well in Gudri Bazaar area of Kotwali police circle. The well is a disputed property with two local groups staking claim and the case is presently in court which has directed that status quo should be maintained at the property.

Saturday's clashes started after a few people led by municipal councilor Vijay Anand tried to prevent the construction of a structure around the well, around 2pm. "I was pulled by the crowd and received blows on my face and head. In no time, stone-pelting started and about 15 people were left injured," Anand told TOI.

Meerut district magistrate Navdip Rinva said, "I don't think we will need to impose curfew. We have demanded five companies of forces, which are on their way to Meerut. There is no casualty. Those who are injured are being treated."

The agitated mob plundered a jewelry store in Bajaja Bazaar and ransacked a sweet shop in Teer Gran. The mob also torched the motorcycle of a local Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Piyush Tayal, who had gone to resolve the issue. The area where trouble began has a mixed population of Hindus and Muslims.

Shops downed shutters as rioting and bullet shots rent the air. The district magistrate and senior superintendent of police arrived in the area, but the crowds had gone berserk.

Two cameramen were injured, and the cameras of two other photographers were broken.

Rioting spread also to the Ghanta Ghar area, and a motorcycle was burnt there. With police forces on election duty, there is a shortage of security personnel.

Amit Jain, a resident of Teer Gran, said "the ancient well is public property, under the possession of the nagar nigam. In 1982, a permanent police picket was deployed there because Muslims would take possession of the well from time to time, as it was near the masjid. The police picket was removed two years ago."

Haji Akram, another resident of Teer Gran, said "we were installing a temporary water cooler here and a gate was being installed to safeguard it. A big crowd gathered and objected to installation of the cooler."

Whoever is issuing these kind of whips should be taken care at appropriate time later on. I'm sure they must be doing something illegal.

Anyway, there should be another fake message put out counter acting this one and thus causing confusion during the vote

And ours is not and we fall prey to division by others by ideology, caste and a la carte interpretations of the 'Word'. This is is compounded by our gracious "all religions are equal" concession.

The Pope when he came to India would not admit that "All religions are equal". The King of Saudi Arabia would not pay a visit Gandhi's Shrine.

Organized religions (Hinduism is not one of them) have edge in getting out the word. One Book to rule them all, One Book to find them, One Book to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

We need a Book and then we know which page to look up when the word comes.

Sorry if OT

Varanasi is not where the battle is. Modi will win comfortably if enough people go to the booth.
The bigger battle is what BJP/NDA will get on 16th.
I would take a Modi loss in Varanasi and NDA getting 272+, than a Modi win in Varanasi with NDA getting 225

Rahul at EVM: Was it really a fair, thorough probe?
On Wednesday, Rahul landed at Fursatganj airport at 7.30am in a private jet. Three of his core team members — Kanishka Singh, Kaushal Vidyarthi and Mitakshara Kumari — got off from the same jet and accompanied him through the day as he went booth-hopping.

In what capacity Vidyarthi and Kumari, were allowed to roam around on polling day, is not known. The core team members were seen inside several polling stations and have been caught on camera by TOI at two separate places. The same administration had asked AAP party workers and family of Kumar Vishwas to leave Amethi when campaigning ended on Monday evening.

^^^ Re: Rahul at EVM
Troubling...If this is the state of the second most high-profile constituency in this election..what can be said of any number of tightly contested lesser known constituencies. Very stressful times indeed. I hope we scrape through...even if we have to grovel before Mamta or Didi or Amma...I don't care who to to get their support...for goodness sake let us please scrape through. I think I'll lose whatever solitary strands of of hair left on my head by the 16th..so be it ... all for the country.

This is the woman seen sitting in Pappu's vehicle during interviews in Amethi. Seems like one of the usual suspects (some kind of liberal arts graduate from Hardvar):

The above video discussion is all BS (some sort of "South Asia without Borders" nonsense), but it does raise the question of what qualification or rationale existed for this person to be in Pappu's "core team" (whatever the heck that means) and be allowed to walk into election booths.

Kanishka is from Warton. Must be US citizen or a green card holder at least. Is US citizens involved with Pappu? Is Pappu under advise of US/CIA people during this elections. We know PAAP is. Why not Pappu. PAAP is money and Pappu with Kanishka and other lady.

3 makaras of Maya bazar money - Madhyam ( liquor- drugs in case of Pappu??? - Mamsam - No much relevant now a days - and Magula - women) all being used by goras.

Cross post:



I fee the rigging has taken some toll. But there is also increase in possible winnable seats and both cancelled out. Rigging will help only so much and mainly effective against an opponent not having equal power to ring like BJP in WB. Otherwise in placed like UP BJP will not allow wholesale rigging and will rig where ever they can. So now much advantage there.

They seem to be Indians who studied and worked abroad for a while. Who knows if they had been 'recruited' at some point.
