Hunting Season - The Final Phase



If you haven’t read “Hunting Season” Phase-1 and Phase-2 I recommend you please do.

Ever since the December 26 verdict of a court in Ahmedabad that rejected Zakia Jafri’s petition and gave a “clean chit” to Narendra Modi  in the Gujarat 2002 issue our media crooks have run into a wall. This tweet from chronic hate-monger Rajdeep Sardesai should explain it better:

Two days after the December 26 verdict Arvind Kejriwal took oath as CM of Delhi and our media has been gaga over his “simplicity” and instant delivery of poll promises (free water, 50% cut in power charges etc.). The trickery behind the instant delivery of poll promises is another matter and not of interest to this particular post. (Doling out instant subsidies doesn't require common sense as Rajdeep's friend Mohandas Pai told him on January 1. Any joker can do it without thinking twice). Those will come to light in due course. Rajdeep, like others, wants to peddle how AK is simple and all that. The unstated target? Of course, Modi!

Fact: Modi just wears the traditional kurta and sometimes the Nehru jacket and those are worn well and tastefully. There is nothing flamboyant or ostentatious about them. But when you’re left with nothing, morons like Rajdeep start searching with a flashlight during the day. His tweet should indicate what he (and others) will hunt for in the next few months in the run up to the elections. Along with Modi, there are three other CMs who are quite simple and are rated as performers; Shivraj Chauhan, Raman Singh and Manohar Parrikar. There are other CMs who may be just as simple but are yet to be rated top performers. Of these, Parrikar is known to be a very common man riding around in taxis and bikes and having meals at regular type restaurants. The MSM also won’t tell you that Parrikar is an IIT-ian. They will make you believe AK is the first IIT-ian to become CM. We’ll get to all of this in good time. First let’s catch up on a bit of a follow up to my previous post which was a ‘Prologue’ to 2014.

We have seen historians often lie. And when historians are of the Commie variety, the JNU types, the lies get bigger and bigger. Nehru, Indira, Rajiv and all may have failed in their performance  but the Nehru-Gandhi clan is instrumental in reducing India to a Commie state. Under them and their clones poverty is permanent! It will never go away as long as Commies parading as fake angels are given charge. I talked about Evita in my previous post and how she is still revered as a Saint in Argentina. It took nearly half a century to discover the true history of the deeds of the Perons when they were in charge of Argentina. Here’s a summary about her from “Collectivism Destroys Argentina's Economy” by Ray Thomas (Do read the whole article):

A little-known fact in today's filtered news climate is the fact that the collectivist ideas foisted upon the people of Argentina by Evita Peron and her husband, Juan, destroyed what was one of the strongest free-market economies in the twentieth century. Largely forgotten today is the fact that earlier in this century, Argentina was the fourth richest country in the world... According to British historian Paul Johnson, it had: steady progress in the manufacturing, mining, oil, public utilities and electrical sectors…  Immediately, Peron began attacking capitalists, big ranchers, and the upper classes in general. He started all manner of public works projects to create government-supported jobs for the workers. He nationalized (stole) large industries, from banks to railroads to insurance companies. Then he made the unions into militant organizations by granting workers 13 months pay for 12 months of work, declaring numerous paid holidays and mandating job security… THE PERON FACTOR But what were the actual results of the work of the Perons in the collectivizing of Argentina? Productivity collapsed. Agricultural production declined. Inflation soared. Corruption and featherbedding were rampant in the nationalized sector. Disinvestment starved what was left of the private sector and capital (the hated rich) fled abroad. Argentina's formerly vibrant economy had been effectively destroyed in less than a decade, in order to enrich Peron, his wife, and a few close associates”.

Does the story sound all too familiar? Does all that remind you of one or more of our so-called glorified Commie leaders? It’s not true just for Argentina. This is true for most of the Commie states across the world; of which only a few are left. Don’t allow the rich to loot but don’t loot the rich either. The Commies in India, in politics and in most of the MSM, live the life of Capitalists but they want systems to be that of Communism. Rajdeep asks a stupid question when (as an alleged newsman) it was all right under his nose. What people do not like is duplicity. Managing “appearances” for the public and being altogether another person in private. Do you think a hypocrite like Rajdeep has never seen these images? These are the Gandhi kids on whose crumbs media channels like Rajdeep’s survive.

So who is Rajdeep trying to fool with his stupid question? YOU! The problem like I stated earlier is that the MSM has nothing to whack Modi with after the December 26 “clean chit” by the Ahmedabad court. Ranting about 2002 didn’t sell before and won’t sell now. So they picked up a new toy like AK to whack Modi with. AK may dress simply as he has always done but why should that anyway be a measure of comparison? Since December 26 the media has been having multiple orgasms over AK and AAP. They have screamed about “youngest CM of Delhi, poll promises delivered, challenge to Modi, AAP goes national” blah blah. They can’t tout the Congress kids anymore having been soundly thrashed in the last elections and the party being a total failure last 5 years. So AK fills that gap pretty neatly. What they are hiding is AAP is just another Congress or even worse. The bigger danger is AAP is probably worse than CPM or CPI. Collectively, these Commies have destroyed India and AAP has all the makings and plans of taking the destruction even further. Some of their supporters also happen to be naxal and separatist sympathisers. Some bright person made new logos for some channels and I added the English channels and it quite reflects their non-stop blabbering about AAP:

What supposedly started as an “anti-corruption” movement is now being turned by AAP and the MSM into a new “anti-Modi” campaign. Since AAP decided to form the govt in Delhi with support from the Congress (yes the same Congress they started their alleged anti-corruption movement) both the party and the media have completely stopped talking about the Himalayan corruption of Congress. All that is past! No 2G, no Coalgate, no Adarsh, not even the latest scam of Virbhadra Singh. AAP is just multiplying the “scam-ridden freebie” culture of Congress much faster than anybody else. A closer look will tell anyone that neither the free-water scheme nor the 50% power-tariff cut is going to reach the poorest people in Delhi. The reason is simple: the poor neither have regular water-meters nor have power to be given free or subsidised. And the reason for these channels turning "AAP" all across? Because AAP doesn't have a base in many states and they hope this excessive "campaign" can create that base for AK.

You would think the AAP party has won a landslide majority in Delhi if you go by the media when it still is a minority-party and not a clear winner of elections. Trust the bimbo to suddenly discover the AAP is a Commie party. That too because someone else said it? That is Sagarika’s intelligence after campaigning so much for AAP. Let’s see! Karan ‘The Tool’ Thapar analysed their manifesto on CNN-IBN (See AAPSucker Proxies) but Sagarika still remained ignorant. The whole CNN-IBN and TV18 group campaigned for AAP but she remained ignorant. The freebies that AK was grandly announcing pre-polls went over her head. She still remained ignorant. And she grandly warns AK not to become a “Marxist”. Well, that is for AK to worry but it doesn’t occur to her that she, Rajdeep, Ashutosh and most of the IBN clan are a Commie bunch. They have lauded all the freebies of Congress, their frequent fliers are usually Amartya Sen or Big Bindis or Owaisi types. And she wonders if AAP is Commie. But AK is educating them as we see in this tweet by Rajdeep over “Water”:

I call Dhume’s response slapping with a “feather” or a “velvet glove” and naturally Rajdeep was angry. Rajdeep says “corruption is staple diet”. When cornered, these guys utter the stupidest things. Corruption is staple diet, that’s why CNN-IBN has stopped talking about the Congress corruption. They are used to it. Most of all, their “Superman corruption fighter” Kejriwal is now their best hope against Modi they think, so why talk about corruption at all? AK did join hands with the very corrupt party he was supposedly campaigning against. In short, post December 26 AK is the horse they are going to ride to hunt Modi. But they are going to ignore the fact that AK is more or less the same as Congress or CPM as this news report from Indian Express will vouch for:
So you see, everything that AAP is doing is exactly what the Commie Congress has been doing for most of the last 66 years. The only difference is AAP being new doesn’t carry the baggage of Congress. 

There is another final dirty-trick that the MSM and Congress have pinned their hopes on. It’s not an innovation if you know Congress methods. On the same day as the Ahmedabad court verdict the Congress-Centre announced an inquiry into the “Snoopgate” issue as they call it. This is after the Gujarat govt itself has appointed an inquiry commission on this. If they couldn’t kill Modi with the 2002 issue this is their last hope before elections. And the best part is the inquiry commission is to submit its report within 3 months. It doesn’t take Einstein to tell you why 3 months. This should help the report come in by say March-April so that they can find Modi guilty of something and deal a final “Blow to Modi”. The Congress and the MSM hope that will happen and they will not have to ride the AK horse anymore. I’m not sure the commission has been formed yet and a judge named. I wonder which honourable judge would take part in this political exercise after a similar exercise in the past.

A few days back Arun Jaitley pointed out on Times Now this is nothing but vindictive politics by Congress, having not been able to beat Modi politically. There is a previous example he quoted. When the fodder-criminal Lalu was Railway Minister he appointed a similar inquiry commission to probe the Godhra train burning while another inquiry commission was already at work in Gujarat. This “Lalu Committee” headed by a retired judge ruled the train was burnt from inside and that no Muslims from outside were involved. This is exactly the same rubbish the Congress hopes to pass again. That Lalu report was consigned to garbage by various court judgements. Jaitley also soundly cautioned any retired judge participating in the witch-hunt by Congress. That warning was well-served considering the diminishing reputation of retired judges.

The MSM now wants people to believe that AK and AAP are the biggest threat to Modi. Well, it’s their wet dream. I have said before and I say it again; if there is indeed a threat to Modi then it’s not just AAP. It’s all of them, the Congress, JDU, SP, DMK, CBI, CPM, JUD, MSM, LeT, IM, Huji. One more doesn’t make any difference. But hope floats and channels like CNN-IBN, NDTV, TimesNow, HeadlinesToday, IBN etc. will campaign hard and hope AAP will dent some BJP votes and they can still bring back Congress to power. After all, mongrels who have lived on crumbs for a decade under a Commie regime would not like to see those crumbs disappear. The Congress can’t stop Modi anymore so they hope AAP will spoil the party. In fact Congress will work to push for more seats for AAP. MSM desperately hopes for the same. After all, a “simple Chaiwalla” is unacceptable compared to a “simple Commie”. This is their final phase of hunting season. The little puppies of the media seem more tired than Narendra Modi.

  1. Spot on, Ravinar, from the role of AAP as Sonia's stooges and MSM's last hope to the dirty trick involving the 'snooping' commission 3 hours before the court rejected Teesta's motivated appeal. One thing I would like to point out is that on the day of the court judgement, both Rajdeep and Barkha were mysteriously missing and instead had their lackeys running their biased 'debates' for them.

  2. Awesome post as usual by your standards Ravi! Your arguments against AAP are much better presented than anybody else. BJP spokespeople should take some tips from you before opening their mouth in public.

    Yogi Yadav said recently that Right wing policies make for bad politics while Left wing policies make for bad economics. So AAP is going to go for the pragmatic policies- whatever that means. So far, AAP has shown itself to be distinctively left oriented and that is an alarm bell for many folks like me.

    I don't subscribe to the view of AAP being hand in glove with Congress. I do think Kejri is his own man. Though he seems myopic on how to resolve the country's problems.

    AAP could take the space occupied by CPM and Congress - so it is those two parties who will need to combat AAP. I don't see BJP under much threat against AAP since it does not intrude into BJP's ideological space.

    2. You are right about those scumbags.[AK,YY,Bhushan all are anarchists] .But our friend JO is talking about cannibalization of Congress - eg AAP took away more votes from Congress than from BJP in Delhi.It may happen that AAP may win just about 5-10 seats but damage chances of Congress in 50 seats.
      It has been a blessing for BJP to have chosen Modi.Anyone else would have been made mincemeat by now.

    4. It may not be that simple. In urban centers it has been noted that substantial gain did come in course of last six months as per various surveys. Modi + was having better rating than BJP+. The gap was substantial. and if AAP factor had not come into picture especially since Delhi outcome the shift to AAP from the accredited + have been given choice and is visible in Urban centers - eg Bangalore. The BJP idiologically oriented will not be shifting away, What has to be guarded is the young middle class who swayed in to Modi clan they are getting an alternative. Kindly note they have been apolitical till now and they do not carry any ideological orientation. They are quite in large numbers. That is to be watched . kgnayak

  5. Well the cat is now out of the bag. Kejriwal, when asked by a reporter on what he would do about Sheila, said let BJP come out with proof against Sheila and he will take immediate action! Now he is going to shelve the corruption charges against Sheila which he made so vehemently till now as he is running a coalition govt with the crooked Congi. Here is proof that AAP is just a family member of CONGi.

    1. Remember a phenomenon called Chiranjeevi. Just go back to August 2008. The Superstar launched a party called Praja Rajyam, committed to root out corruption from the country, amidst lots of confetti and firecrackers. The naive Andhra people in turn rooted for him, splitting the TDP vote. But, surprise, surprise, the Superstar later merged his party with the Grand Old Party and he himself became a Minister. But for the Superstar, it is doubtful if the Grand Old Party would have formed a government in 2009. So, it is yesterday once more. Just substitute the Superstar with you-know-who.

    3. The panel report has already implicated Sheila as culprit and Sheila's government rejected that panel report. BJP has to hammer Kejri with that report. If he still refuses the cat will be out as you say.

  6. When the entire media was having orgasm over the success of gang kejeriwal. Modi had the killer instinct to prepare for his Campaign - Round 2 (Modi always campaigns two rounds both directly & indirectly). He used this time to induct Yeddy in Karntaka. Make deals with smaller parties in TN, get the support of many caste & religious leaders (including the church) in Kerala. In A.P also there is news in the air that as many as 11 congress MPs might join BJP and finally he might cement the alliance with TDP. The media did not discuss much about Yeddy because they were busy making love to this new commie outfit called AAP. By the time the media gets over this Kejeriwal & AAP fantasy. Modi would have made many allies, earned support of caste groups and would emerge unbelievably strong.

      BJP do not have a strong base or a class/caste group that it can influence in Kerala. They might get more votes thats all , there will not be a win.

      And in the unlikely scenario that there is a winnable candidate with support of social groups, Congress and CPM will pool their votes to prevent BJP from winning. Happens in all the assembly elections.

    3. Selfish Church by coming out speaking in favor of Modi is nothing but to tie Modi's hand by not allowing him to project him as a Hindutva leader and ensure that Modi don't even speak once in fear of secularism which is BJP's core ideology - Hindutva...

      One such person is Justice Iyer, read some where that Anna Hazare deciding to support Modi all this are congress strategies to keep Modi's tongue in check especially on Hindutva.

    6. I broadly agree that more sections would join. Even the Catholics endorsing Modi is of significance although agreed that in Kerala UDP and LDP will come to understanding to sabotage any chances of BJP winning.even a single seat. But its value is substantial to face the anti progaganda else where. Let me be very clear. Once it becomes very clear Congress is too far from coming to power the better off groups controlling the church may make the catholics to shift away from the Commies. They in any case are not comfortable with left of centre economic policy. This change will take place this time. More social groups from unexpected quarters will rally for Modi. kgnayak

    7. Thanks for enlightening us about what is happening in South India. It is surprising who and how many will jump to the band wagon once Modi's band wagon start rolling. It is well known fact that lot of Muslims even have started to vote for Modi (BJP) in Gujarat election.

  7. If we lose this chance to throw the Commies out, I shudder to think of the future. I have already seen that there is no private investment in the Telecom sector. India was supposed to have been the first country to have extensive 4G networks and truckloads of investments were supposed to come in. The spectrum allocation scam and the policy paralysis has ensured all that has never materialised. I regularly look at the BRIC business for my company and India is falling far far behind. These Commies have all but ruined India.
    Thanks again Ravinar for giving a voice to our frustrations. A bit superfluous to say awesome analysis...but I say it anyway.

  10. Congis and MSM both are knowing that that UPA has failed. Voter this time will not go with them since BJP is better organised this time under NaMo. So they both are trying to cluch this last thread of hope to save themselves. AAP or any other formation were they find any hope will do for them and they are on their chosen track. They just want to safeguard their personal corruption and that's all. But people like you never let them hide from public glare.

    4. Dear 178*,

      This is very typical AAP styled attack on BJP where they deliberately focus only on local level corporators ( They did the same with MCD in Delhi)& argue that BJP is as corrupt as Congress. Here again I would repeat " The BJP/Modi supporters should not get into verbal spat with AAP over local corrupt BJP leaders because that's like falling directly into the AAP trap". We must not waste our energy in defending corrupt local leaders from whichever party. As the AAP leaders do not have the baggage of local level corruption considering they are only 1 year old party ! The proper answer to these AAP sycophants is " We realise that their is corruption at local level & BJP's central leadership under NAMO & Rajnath Singh are working very hard to improve the situation. Many of our states such as M.P, Gujarat are on forefront of fighting corruption & providing spectacular growth alongside. BJP's immediate & important objective is to dislodge corrupt Congress from centre which supports pro-Kashmiri seperatist AAP in Delhi & then replicate our Gujarat, M.P, Chhattisgarh growth model across India.

      The entire mainstream media is against BJP, and Ravinar writes against the hyporisy and duplicity and shamelessness of Mainstream media (and many of them are on the MMS witchunt against BJP and Modi). and in exposing them , some of his articles would but seem like pro BJP . if you do not like them, do not come here. why come here and pass useless comments not just against the author but also commenters , without knowing anything about them ??? we are not paid trolls. we come here out of our liking of the articles and the insights that these provide. and many a times there are debates, criticism as well.

    7. I entirely agree with Abhijith as mentioned above. This is not normal time. True everything may not be to our liking in the local levels even in BJP. The issues involved here is that the economy has dipped to a level God forsake if UPA comes back there could be chaos beyond our imagination. Continuous double digit inflation for over 5-6 years will make living more miserable. Modi has given the hopes that he can set right and bring back the economy to control That is our hope. Why not we remember the days of 1998-2004 the economics scene. That is why we are all serious to bring Modi. All the original supporters of BJP shall keep this in mind with hope to get back to normalcy. Let us fight about our issues later kgnayak

  15. I for one feel that NaMo is getting overexposed,considering how far ahead the LS poll is .The last rally in Ranchi sounded a little monotonous, even to a BJP supporter. Any fall in the attendence can ruin the whole campaign. One can recall the Mumbai fasting fiasco of Anna Hazare in 2011 after a series of successful campaigns in Delhi.The whole movement collapsed after that.If any such misfortune happens to NaMo now, it would skyrocket the popularity of his rivals and detractors alike.The BJP think tank must take every future step with caution and get the correct balance between issues and verbal attacks against the incumbent govt.One minor criticism of MMS by LKA in 2009 calling him a weak PM, rescued the robot. That is the psyche of the INdian electorate when faced with political correctness.

  16. MSM has worked itself in to a frenzy for AAP.TOI Ahmedabad has headlined the news about funds "pouring " in to AAP with people falling over each other to become AAP members/volunteers.Dr Kanu Kalsaria who lost his seat in Gariadhar along with his six MLAs of "Sadbhavana manch" Imagine he getting an AAP ticket from Junagadh or Porbandar - MSM will have to devote pages to report the ways he will "sweep" this seat.
    Like present congress party,Commies and other JNU types have failed to understand the mind of Indian voter.This time Indian voter wants to punish Congress and all those who are associated with Congress.He also wants to install an honest and effective government.Only Modi & BJP fulfill these conditions.

  18. The basic fact is Rahul Gandhi has realized he and his party cannot win 2014 like '09. He is ready for that and has accepted that as well. However, Congress wants to retain as much as possible (at least 160+ seats) seats and they want hung Parliament this time badly. They found a "great stooge" in the form Arvind Kejriwal and allowed him to grow and added fuel to fire by ill-treating Anna Hazare movement deliberately so that a negative wave created. They thought that will spread across India but happened in New Delhi for sure per election results. Now Congress via MSM is trying to create the same image across India so that urban/middle-class anti-incumbency vote share won't go to BJP (which is the strong citadel of BJP for many years). With that, third-front supported by Congress will run the show for next couple of years. Then pull down the Govt and come back to power once they have money accumulated to go for Election. GOP of India is great and learnt the art of Indian Politics very well. Lets see.

    MSM is desperately trying to checkmate Modi and protect CONguys (their paymasters) by propping up Kejriwal. MSM is repeating what they did for VP Singh, to halt the march of nationalists. It is another matter that Kejriwal will also end up like VP Singh, but with immense damage to the country. The irony is, though Kejriwal has no experience in public administration, MSM is forcing him on the country. MSM will create euphoria till the eve of LS election and create illusion in the mind of youth and educated and sway some percentage of votes away from BJP and sizable Congress votes to AAP (which otherwise would have come to BJP). Appeal to youths to counter this by moving to electoral fields to educate people and also to BJP by selecting good candidates with clean images.

  21. Ravinar,
    Well, With the hunting season begun already, the question remains whether they will succeed. By anointing Modi as BJP as a prime ministerial candidate, both BJP and Modi have forced the Congress and MSM to the most risky and fight to the finish with all they have got. The result will be either a loss to Modi or win for Modi with MSM and congress being completely exposed.
    The BJP and Congress it seems have atleast started to take head on which is good for Indian politics and Modi.
    But the Media has realized that there can be not shoot and scoot possible and it has to take on Modi overtly and anything it takes, even its reputation and so half solutions will work. The idea of support to AAP comes from this thinking and its not wrong, It is this..
    "if Modi reaches anywhere closer to 200 (195-220), it will be impossible to stop Modi as the regional parties like BJD,TDP go with NDA no matter what, the idea is to somehow stop modi at around 160-175, so that the MSM with Congress will run a campaign that not only there is no modi wave but ensure that NDA will not get allies. The fear of an honest PM will also keep some allies (smaller one like JVM) away". These twenty (20 ) seats make all the difference, BJP with 200 seats will be qualitatively different from a BJP with 175 seats. With 175 seats BJP will be circumspect, doubtful and shrouded in mystery as to whether it opted the right strategy in anointing Modi. While with 200 its conviction will be vindicated about Modi. Issue of Corruption sadly has a short memory with public, the real issue is inflation and Congress will ensure third font to bear all the brunt of the inflation as no PM coming from third front will worry about it as his/her focus is to stay and enjoy the post as long as possible before congress pulls the rug offering some lame excuse.
    I can say with one word that the fight of MSM and Congress is for a fight to restrict Modi to less than 180 (the threshold level Vajpayee reached, MSM can claim Modi is not even close to Vajpayee).
    Modi's call to people should be "AAP ka Vote agar BJP to nahi milta toh woh idhar udhar jaake Congress ko hi milega". If your Vote doesnt go to BJP, it will go here and there and will eventually reach only Congress, subtly suggesting that voting for AAP is voting for Congress.

    1. Dear Vamsi Krishna,

      Completely Agree. I would add here that the Communists always operate keeping two faces. One face is focussed on gathering support from the Local level poor, migrants, muslims & dalits while the other face attracts educated young minds with ideology of communism & Socialism. BJP & Modi must keep a plan ready to counter both these faces by doing door to door campaign in poor & migrant localities & fighting an ideological battle in Social Media, MSM, colleges & universities by projecting NAMO as the only viable solution to corrupt Congress & AAP. Vande Mataram

    2. Fear well expressed, Vamsi. The top brass of BJP, barring a very few of course, is even now circumspect and doubtful as to what Modi is going to reap (eventhough drooling to occupy cabinet positions if Modi achieves it) . It is this self screwing crack through which Congress, backed up by MSM is driving the wedges, AAP being one among them. Knowing the psyche of our electorate, Modi with his trustworthy team is working to mobilise workable alliance to succeed. The responsibility lies with the voters. Let us vote and hope.

  22. As usual wonderful post Ravinar.

    >>The MSM also won’t tell you that Parrikar is an IIT-ian. <<
    The reason is simple he is sanghi(RSS wala), Hindu and saffron so according to these MSM morons he does't deserve IIT. And secondly Rajdeep's usual excuse "Tyranny of distance "

    The another point to be noted about other IITians is Bala of Infosys joining AAP. Narayan Murhty himself confessed that he was a leftists. All of them made a fortune with the liberal and capitalists world and are now joining AAP. Left of left party by Arvind Kejriwal, Yogendra Yadav. Another comrade Prashnat Bhushan....supporter of anarchists, leftists and sympathizers of Maoists, sympathizer of Kashmiri separatists, took the case against NaMo on behalf of that corrupt IPS officer. So every thing makes sense.

    No questions now on Taukir Rana, Batla House encounter and visits to numerous Dargha and Imams by Arvind Kejriwal.

    One more point, it is to be noted no Channel showed Dr. Harashwardhan's 45 minutes speech through which he posed similar probing questions in Delhi Assembly.(I hope BJP makes it available on Youtube) No MSM showed it live. They showed AK live, where he didn't reply to those questions. Perfect to MSM script.

    4. Not just Bala and Narayan Murthy, recently the director of IIM got sold on Kejri. He said Kejri's management decisions are worth admiring. Now think of Kejri's decisions about water supply and power price cut. Normally a new CEO spends some time studying problem then make informed decision. Here Kejri just because he had Sheila's surplus money, he started spending like a drunken sailor and the director of IIM was impressed.

  24. Great post as usual Ravinar. Suddenly everyone has stopped talking about corruption. Especially our dear leader AK. Kumar Vishwas doing a rally in Amethi is a hogwash, to show to the AAM AADMI that AAP is fighting Congress as well. Its just a strategic move by Congress to prop up AK. As someone already has pointed out that Left leaning policies is what this country can ill-afford at this point of time.

  27. A look at some numbers would not be unwelcome here.

    Out of each 100 voters of AAP, roughly 50 came from those who would have otherwise voted for others. Roughly 30 were Congress supporters and 20 were BJP supporters.

    "Others" roughly comprise of SP/BSP/JDU/Left.

    I reckon this proportion would more or less hold true in most of the places AAP is likely to contest. If at all, it will be even more skewed against others and congress than it was in Delhi. In highly rooted cities like Mumabi and Lucknow, the 50-30-20 ratio could realistically skew to as much as 55-35-10. Where BJP is not much of a force (like in hyderabad), the place of BJP would be taken by the likes of TDP/AIADMK/BJD/TMC.

    Now let us look at the absolute number of votes AAP is likely to garner. I am not wrong in assuming that the most generous assessment would not exceed 15% of popular vote in North India and 10% in south India. And that too in mostly Urban centers. Let me be even more generous and assume 20% for the purpose of estimating the maximum damage that can come to BJP.

    Out of this 20%, BJP's loss would be 4%, Congress' loss is 6%, Others loss is 10%. (Assuming the worst case scenario of 50-30-20 ratio). Now look at the cities where Congress had emerged winner in 2009. Let me assume further that there will be a natural swing of at least 3% away from Congress. For the worst case situation let me assume that none of it goes to BJP. Since AAP would cause a 2% gap between Congress and BJP by it's mere presence. So it follows that wherever the BJP lost by less than (3+2=) 5% margin to Congress, it is highly likely that BJP would win that seat.

    I have done a worst case scenario. Realistically, AAP would cause (3.25+3.75=) 7% difference between BJP and Congress. I do not need to say that this is a catastrophic gap.

    IN the absence of AAP this difference ranges from 3% to 6% in those seats where BJP has a stronger chance. Where BJP has not so strong chance, this difference ranges from -4% to -1%.

    It is clear that AAP is only accentuating the difference in favor of BJP.

    Suggestion to BJP :: Modi/BJP should keep on doing what they are doing. They should take little note of AAP/Kejriwal. By refusing to react against them, they make sure that AAP takes up more of the anti-BJP space which is currently occupied by Congress and this causing even more damage to Congress.

    Suggestion to Congress :: withdraw support to AAP in Delhi assembly immediately. This way a fresh election would be announced at the same time as LS polls. This tactic would ensure that AAP would be totally tied to Delhi for the next five months. Fear of Modi's vote propelling Harshvardhan would force Kejriwal to keep his anchors within Delhi. Even though Congress may still not win Delhi assembly, they cannot really go much lower than 8 out of 90 - they have already bottomed out and have nothing to lose. But by preventing AAP to go national, they could save some of their votes outside Delhi.


    Caveat : For the above numbers, I have assumed AAP gets a popular vote of 15-20%.

    1. If they win much less than this (say ~5%), their effect would be negligible. In this case we shd ignore AAP.

    2. If they win much more than this (say in excess of 30%) they may turn out to be the winner even after causing a huge difference in BJP vs Congress votes. This is what happened in Delhi assembly polls.

    1. good analysis, but I would like add a few more points
      a) AAP got votes in Delhi as it was fighting congress incumbency and BJP candidates did not focus too much on the vulnerabilities of AAP. If their stands on Batla house, minority appeasement, legalising of bangladeshi settlements, Kashmir separatism was exposed , then their share would have been much less ( and these constitute the pro bjp vote).
      b) AAP is getting a lot of benefit of a biased Mainstream media. Imagine what would have happenned had Modi lied on his relatives and reneged on his commitments .
      c) The victory in 3 other states of BJP has been completely ignored by Media.

      Our media is biased , so its persistent anti modi onslaught will have an impact on fence sitters , but not to those that are determined to unseat UPA with a clear mandate to a stable opposition. Moreover if majority of voting indians are indeed fools , amnesic, clueless ( as Justice Katju says ) , then no amount of analysis is worth anything as Indians will vote per their whims and fancies.
      if however there is method to the madness - then BJP and Modi should draw up a plan of action for winning every singular seat and connect with people at a mass level to sustain the momentum. It is possible to replicate the Rajasthan pro--bjp wave in many states in india.
      Time will tell

      Delete
    2. Well if media bias was so important, Congress wouldn't lose any election in India and CPI/M would rule a lot more states. Look at media bias as the waves of an ocean ... there are far more powerful oceanic currents in the deep sea ... waves are a minor phenomenon. Sure waves affect things but not much.

      It is not that AAP got much advantage out of media campaign. If you recall much of media campaign was not in favor of AAP 2-3 months before the election. It is that media sensed that AAP is going to get a large percentage of votes then they shifted their stand just to be on the winning side. so media's influence is over estimated.

      Delhi people voted for AAP much as ppl in other states vote for new comers in such circumstances. Nothing extraordinary. Think about it, there is no other conclusion. And so it follows that AAP's trajectory will be similar to the trajectory of other big-splash newcomers like TDP, TMC and AGP. When was the last time you heard TDP/AGP/TMC winning seats in New Delhi ? The same way, you wont hear AAP winning seats in Bangalore/Mumbai/Hyderabad. All the hoopla you hear in media is not to help AAP win any seats but just to prick the air out of Modi's campaign. Some of it is sure directed by the Congress but large parts of it is just so because the channel heads detest Modi and they would rather show grass growing in a field rather than a Modi speech.

      And it is not possible to replicate Rajasthan type result all over India for the same reason that it is not possible to replicate AAP's Delhi result all over India.

      Modi's task is tough not because of AAP or media but because of entrenched votes. Most of the villages do a panchayat (different castes do separate panchayats) and decide collective votes ... even many semi-urban settlements do the same. That is why Congress still keeps getting votes. This is what Modi has to overcome, media-bias is child's play.

      The silver lining is that once he converts the panchayats, they become his entrenched votes for decades to come. And that is why he is silent on all the hungama going on in media ... he is probably having sleepless nights on devising a correct strategy ... media/AAP is last of his troubles.

      My analysis is over optimistic for the AAP. I have used a best case (in favor of AAP) to say that they will at best change the BJP-Congress difference from (-4 to -1)% and (3 to 5)% to (5 to 7)%. This will hold even if none of BJP and Congress win that particular seat. IN most of urban centers, BJP and Congress are in direct fight ... so AAP will cause those seats to shift towards BJP.

      In rural areas there wont be any AAP to help BJP. And Modi will have to sweat it out from panchayat to panchayat ... a slow, painful battle of nerves and patience.

    3. Dear No mist....were you professor of psephology? Similar views were presented by Surjeet Bhalla few days ago.

      Well I agree with you that the votes going to secular brigade that is not going to come to BJP in near future, will get transferred or realigned to AAP as was visible in Delhi. I am worried for those 2% votes from BJP that may go to AAP assuming that AAP is not from secular brigade and left of left. BJP should highlight that AAP is B team of congress or secular combine and LEFT. They are not different. Yogendra Yadav knows that LEFT thinking is out of date and it will harm AAP if it projects itself as LEFT. This is why AAP is not putting this idiotic ideology on it's sleeves and says on AAP website that we are not left we are not right, we will offer you solutions to your problems. However, the first two decisions they took after coming to office two different problems of Water and Electricity are exactly as per left of left ideology. Subsidy...splurge with state money, profit is dirty word and minority appeasement Ha ha ha.....that is their natural impulse.

  28. BJP is just giving more rope to AAP on its suicidal path... AAP + CONgress is just only a few inches of rope...

    In the midst of MSM & CONgoons ballooning AAP beyond its size, confused people are now getting a clear picture of how their vote to non-NDA parties will end up strengthening CONgress. Now Kejriwal was asking opposition leader Dr. HV to get the proof against Sheila Dixit... Has he forgotten that it is his duty as a CM to probe into all the allegations (AK himself made several shoot & scoot allegations on Sheila before elections).

    Coming months will only expose AAP more, and BJP should invest its energies more on convincing the voters that AAP is Team-B of CONgress.

  29. As part of the hunting season extending all the way till the general elections
    The following are other dirty tricks that will manifest
    sustained media news giving a positive spin on everything that AAP and AK does. ( including those that have been done by others . )
    whatever BJP does would be deemed to be a copying of AAP despite the same being otherwise ( AK announced a general line open to Public for complaining against corruption and it was claimed as a first, despite rajnikant patel , guj home minister ) having announced something similar six months back )
    Sustained target by AAP at getting bjp rebels / bjp discards into their fold .
    Possible tie ups with JDU, BSP, TMC, BJD. ( and will not be surprised if they tie up with extremes like Congress and SS in some states )

    AAP may not be be aware or may not be wanting to accept or may just do not care the trap of anti-national forces that they are walking into. Suddenly Congress corruption has gone on the backburner..and BJP seems to be the main target. And this also helps US, China, Pakistan and other inimical forces to see a continuing weak government at centre and prevent a Modi led majority strong government at centre.

    But BJP has its strenghts and it should play to that.. A very good headstart, a strong Pro Modi wave ,established party cadres across geographies ( though in UP, they presently seem to be weak and relying too much on Modi ), Baba Ramdev ( more popular than even AK in the rural segments of India ), RSS support .

    and yes, all like minded nationalists supporting BJP should also make an effort to enrol themselves into BJP ( or other supporting organizations ) and work closely with all like minded forces in their respective locality .

    On my part, I am an NRI and have since taken timeout to return to india for six months and would be actively working for the cause of a strong nationalist government formation at the centre. and I am sure i am not alone.

    We need to make every efforts per our capability and God willing we shall get a strong patriotic government at the centre in 2014 that will propel India to a new era of high growth and prosperity.

  31. The best thing that AAP has done is force the BJP/Sanghis to display their colors. These were earlier masquerading as campaigners against the UPA govt and were exposing virtually everyone who had a varying world view as Khangressi, corrupt and anti-national, well people like me wanted to believe you because of our disgust from this government. But your U-turn on politics of Anna and Kejriwal (I mention Anna for a reason) speaks for your intellectual honesty.

    It is interesting someone who has taken upon himself to expose the so called MSM media crooks, do not talk about the relations between the Former Bengali editor of TOI and Gujrati corporate. It is interesting you never mention that he was advising Modi for his campaign in 2007. Equally interesting you overlook that Jaggi forced editorial changes because of corporate financial pressure.

    But why should you care, you are on a crusade for your ideology, and whoever disagrees with your grand ideas is a crook.

      Now let me suggest constructive opinions:

      Institutions, organisations and individual must be honest, and when i say honest, it inherently includes the concept of intellectual honesty. The responsibility towards such honesty may largely lie on the government but also lies on the individuals. When I comment on the deliberate dishonesty of the post I am commenting on this exact responsibility.

      One of the reasons that I came here and read the post is because I have been following this Blog for some time now, and I agree with many of the observation.

      When something like AAP happens some people shall not be excited by it because AAP may not subscribe to the ideological beliefs of those people (me included). But making an attempt at maligning them by calling both the AAP and those journalist who have been sympathetic with them crook and so on is rather crude and gives away your inability to argue with substance.

      The reason why I mentioned the Bengali editor , or I could have named an entire news paper , or another veteran editor and more who have ideological sympathies is because like they are not being dishonest when they take a stand for Modi and i have not heard anyone call them so. But when a Sardesai or Ashutosh takes a stand contrary to the supposedly right ideas they are called names, this sounds unfair to people like me whose politics is not dictated by a monolith of ideology.

      This also brings to question the purported fairness of the earlier posts written here. Was Media crook watching everything with a unidimensional view of right winged politics? And if it was true than, my opinions about I few editors which were often formed through an incisive post on this blog may have to be revisited, because as with those editors I can see a palpable ideological adamancy here

    2. True Yeduarappa did get mixed with plots allotments in Bangalore . like several other CMs before him. He should have kept himself away . No doubt he failed in this test and paid a heavy price. Then compared to the loot committed by the earlier Congress CMs of the state his crime was nothing. His crime was in square feet vs the earlier ones in acres. But BJP should not have mixed up on such a sensitive subject especially in the days of MSM vendetta against them with 24x7 vigilance. Then Yedi alone has got capacity to go the root once again and come back. As it is the chances are very slim for BJP in Karnataka .Agreeing that Bangalore meet of Modi was an unique rally without parallel. Massive crowd of 3-4 lakhs size of well disciplined creed keenly awaiting for a CHANGE. Me at age of 73 was a witness at a far corner of the arena although walked a 2-3 kms from the carpark inside the Palace grounds. With such enthusiasm available difficult to believe that all this will go a waste. Concerned at the not so adequate back up of ground level team of the party BJP. May be to galvanise the cadres in Karnataka Yedi is required. Just Modi addressing some rallies is not enough. So it is a right step . Groundswell in favour of Modi is there but it has to be converted in to a wave. That is missing. Yes it does not make sense to hear our friends like Capt Gopinath or for that matter Bala of Ex Info of 100+ cr category well deserved professionals opting for left of center led AAP . I know for a fact that they certainly do not believe in the economic view points of AK or Yogendra or Bhushan the current think tanks of the new party. Somewhere there is a missing link. Is it just a personal ambition point can not be. They were all expected to be in Modi team. So all our dreams are getting driven away. What is happening. This can not be only a Bangalore issue.

  37. Few points to emphasize the importance of AAP discourse in Loksabha elections.

    1. The question of whether AAP will cut into BJP's vote or Congress vote will only be clear when we come more closer to elections and the stand that AAP takes.
    If it takes a strong Anti-Modi, Anti-BJP and more secular stand instead of a weak one, two things happen.

    a)Traditional voters of BJP will stick of Modi even harder and there will be very little spillover of BJP vote to BJP. Around 2% loss of votes were seen for BJP in Delhi due to the fact that some BJP voters thought AAP would not be so anti-Hindu and anti-right politically. Now with alliance with Congress its stake for traditional BJP vote is completely dented unlike say Congress traditional vote where except for muslims, other who traditionally voted for congress in urban areas may have possibility to go to AAP.
    b)Why did the Congress then chose AAP to prop it against BJP then? the idea stems from the fact that there are huge number of new voters that are going to join as electoral voters this time, majority of them from youth. Congress knows that the youth vote may decisively go to modi (especially in urban areas) without AAP. Even if Congress had worries about its traditional vote withering, it does not want new voters to move to Modi which is more important. You see traditional voters may be wooed back to Congress but not voters who never voted for you. In the first past the post system like ours, it is as important to deny the opposition the opportunity than gaining one.

    2. As I mentioned in my previous post, the primary issue for Congress is to cut down Modi for he threatens their cozy life. Any corrupt-leftist party would do even if Congress loses out as a political force. Its not a political force in most of India anyways now. Remember Congress is nothing but Gandhi family, sustaining their relevance is more important than survival of Congress. Congress happily survived as Junior partner in TN,West Bengal (to communists) for decades. The longer the pseudo-secular narrative lives politically, the longer the Gandhi family will be safe. By cutting down strong regional leaders, Congress has already lost the nerve to rule. Their only agenda now is to survive the storm of anti-Congress and Pro-Modi (especially in northern parts of India) wave. There is a realization that Gandhi family no longer has the political capital to rule the nation, only the political capital to control Congress. The idea of anointing puppet may no longer work and congress knows that too (with MM as fall guy, who will replace him and convince the voters). The idea is to atleast stop Modi from derailing the existing socio-political narrative of the country from left-to-centre to centre-right market politics.

    3)If somehow they can deny modi stable numbers and are able to prove that Modi is no different than them, Voters will go back to them meekly and surrender to its domination again. The intermediate time will be consumed by high inflation and debts (read Jagannathan's posts in firstpost regarding this how Congress is using scorched earcth policies to deny Modi a chance to revive the economy).
    Third front or a weak modi will serve them best and that is the agenda of the Congress, even at the height of AAP surge in Delhi, No minority vote went to AAP. Congress won most of the muslim vote and there are 5 muslim MLA's in Congress out of 8. Muslims knows it.Congress knows it. Modi knows it. Yogendra Yadav knows it. AAP fools itself. Mullahs under Congress will weather the storm for few years and hope for a revival of their chance with voter fatigue with instability and waning of Modi wave.

    The Congress I think is anyway fighting a losing battle.

    1. To add to the previous post.
      1. Imagine the worst scenario (without AAP) where most of the youth votes for Modi thus giving him a strong mandate and Modi revives the economy, he will be considered the saviour and will be bestowed with another term. The split in NEW VOTE is what is important. If its not AAP, then its PAAP,SAAP,KHAAP or anything.

      2.Digvijay and Sonia are desperately hoping that Modi is greedy enough to form the Govt with Mamata And Maya for they would not let Modi work nor Modi's greed will not let him lose power for a stronger mandate. Their only hope now is that Modi is greedy enough to make mistakes of aligning with ideological fools just like what Morarji Desai did in 1977 where due to ideological incoherence, the coalition again Indira Gandhi fumbled and unraveled in a matter of two years. Sonia and Digvijay is hoping that Modi deep in his heart is just like them, greedy for power.

  39. hi all and ramana rao

    this is what i wrote on 9th december, 2013

    please take serious note of it :-

    the most basic rule of fight is boxers fights with boxers, swordsmen fights with swordsmen. ordinary people do not fight with professional boxers, If at all they will, they will show some courage initially but in the end they will be punched left, right and centre and will be destroyed completely.

    unfortunetly, that is what happening in all tv news debates. bjp spokespersons pitted against the likes of kumar vishwas (black belt in abusing & accusing), arvind kejriwals, sanjay jhaas, mani-shankar aiyers, kumar ketkars are being decimated & destroyed day in & day out.

    even meenakshi lekhi ( the best from bjp ) off-late has slowed down considerably. rightly so , as i said earlier, only dog fights with dogs.

    the bottom line is bjp needs to hire and recrtuit them who possesess those sort of special skills and put them at task right away on the most urgent basis or else they run the risk of losing all when this time around they have the best chance to gain all.

  40. Dear Ravinar,

    First of all thank you very much for your relentless effort to expose these anti national elements (so called MSM, well most of them) and educating us all.
    I would like to point out to you about the alleged unholi match fixing that took place in hotel Amman between Arvind Kejriwal, industrialist Pawan Munjal and the top congress delhi leaders. Mr Raju Purulekar has already spilled the bean on this deal but he has not yet divulged the complete details (read as proof) of it. It would be good if you can throw some light on this as well. I strongly believe that sooner these anti nationals are exposed the better. Otherwise if these commies succeeds then we are heading towards catastrophe.

  41. Media managers of the BJP (Jaitley,Ravishankar Prasad etc.) have lost the opportunity. When some biased anchor ask them to speak on AAP party, instead of saying that- "AAP is a creation of congress to divide opposition votes and we strongly oppose Congress-AAP combination" they say-"we congratulate them for their brilliant performance...we wish them all the luck...we should give them the time to prove themselves..we agree this is a new phenomenon in the Indian politics...Its good for democracy...".

    Similarly, when Modi try to motivate cadres by saying that we should achieve mission 272+ seats, these Delhi losers come on TV and say--"Yes, if we manage to get 150-160 seats, allies will come to us...we will be the anchor of the NDA ship if we cross 150 mark...coalition government is the reality of the day and it will remain for the next 20 years".

    It would be good for the country if Modi forms his own party and concentrate on 2019 elections.

    1. I think ur vision is too short.Any aggressive posture against the AAP will be construed as hunger for power by the BJP.Moreover if the win target is not achieved, with what face will the spokespersons or managers appear on the media again.It is better to wait and watch the AAP sink in its own contradictions.Y'day the robot PM took an aggresive stand on NaMo and already people are talking about the electoral benefits it would bring to NaMo. That is the psyche of the Indian electorate especially of the Hindu variety. They are always waiting for applause from some imaginary gallery.They are the ones who burn themselves to provide warmth for their own enemies.I only hope no top leader of KhanChris or AAP dies during the election season.

    2. @ Anand: The point is simple, there are three months for the elections and not three years. They need to be pro-active instead of waiting for Kejri to make mistake which is anyway unlikely in a short span of three months. Whether you and I like it or not, with over the top positive coverage from the MSM, Kejri has already become the talk of the town. Even if he himself won't win, he can dent BJP's prospects. Do media managers of the BJP will let it slip from their hands, I don't know but if they lose again, they will be called chokers.

      It's a fact that major opposition party's spokespersons are heckled everywhere in MSM. A voter would probably never get attracted to a weak,defenseless and confused group.

    3. @terry, now that the AAP is on a blind membership spree in all states, i would want BJP to induct its own trojan horses into this motley gang and ask them to revolt at the right time.

  42. Congress Clones all over India....

    SP: Fight against Congi in UP but support in Delhi
    BSP: Fight against Congi in UP but support in Delhi
    Left: Fight against Congi in WB/Kerala/Tripura but support in Delhi
    JD(U): Fight against Congi in Bihar but support in Delhi

    And now we have a new clone in AAP and improved one. This time after fighting against Congi in Delhi they are into JV in Delhi itself. AAP has put all other clones far behind and in supersonic speed. Welcome to Congi Clone world of Mass Looters.

  43. One of the tricks of MSM is to persistently taunt modi of his ideas,vision and policy discourse if he were to become PM. But, the same MSM would not show his past speeches where he clearly articulated vision on these ideas of Governance.

    We see lot of articles these days asking for BJP to openly talk about their policies but would not show any progressive ones. The idea for corrupt MSM is, they are hoping that someone among BJP would openly call for more market oriented approach to an economy which is sagging right now. If they could find any soundbite by BJP about market oriented policies, it would give the oppurtunity for MSM and will be a unmitigated disaster for BJP. In a country as poor as India and where leftist discourse is so entreched and even a right party has to incessantly talk on populism, any idea of Market is a death wish. MSM is desperately hoping BJP to make this mistake, the question is will they make it?

  44. 1) Modi is Charismatic but the Ground work/Volunteer support seems to be Zero. If the hope is to ride on anti congress wave and on Modi Charisma in Rallies than the results would be disastrous.
    2) Don't see Volunteers connecting with people to understand Issues/Aspirations.Need action plans at both Micro and Macro Level.
    3) Could have set up Booths to Help/Guide people on Voter Registration. Real visibility is more important than Virtual links to Registration Sites.
    4) Should set up grievance cell in each locality to facilitate/Assist on taking up issues like poor roads etc to the Govt.
    5) Would like to hear Modi's plans on a)Better/Cheaper Healthcare measures.b)Better/Affordable Education measures c) Radical changes in Law and
    order implementation(Approachable/Honest) d) Measures to bring down Inflation( Even Chicken price varies between Rs 50 to Rs Rs 100 /Kg. The artificial inflation is visible in Vegetable prices too) e) Employment/Entrepreneurial support etc.
    6) Would like to see Modi interacting with Media and give regular interviews on future Course.( no on really cares about 2002/Snoop-gate anymore/No need to deride Congress(Everyone is sick of Congress)

  45. very nice analysis Ravi.. its really scary to see these college going kids and many first time voters drifting towards AAP without releasing that the policy of distributing freebies has already proved detrimental to India's economy. I feel Kejriwal is to Congress what Nehru was to British (same idealogy).... lets hope that people will not be fooled this kind of subterfuge this time...

  48. Ravi,
    Master piece as usual.
    One small suggestion. When you use abbreviations, kindly write their full for first time with abbreviation in the brackets. From the next time you could use the abbreviations.
    Like, Main stream media (MSM), the first time it appears in an article, and MSM from later on in the article.
    Kindly follow this for every article. Some of the first timers to your blog asked me what MSM is.
    You have been doing a great service to this country.

  53. Ravinar has done outstanding work in 2013 and has started with a bang in 2014. Few crucial months before the election deciding the fate of us all for the next five years - I suppose, the tempo will rise everywhere esp. MSM.

    Many who comment here on AAP and AK are frustrated that they are gaining lot of mileage, popularity etc. Real Truth behind AAP and Kejriwal youtube video posted by Keshav has consolidated some pointers - which by and large we know all by now. But, its important that people by and large see through their designs.

    The crux of the matter is that the core AAP bunch of guys are cunning - they have clear cut strategy to manipulate things to meet their ends. Congi etc commies have their own versions of the art (infact systematic as well) of fooling people around which has been exposed to some good extent by now and is also outdated to hoodwink esp. the current generation. While sticking to those basics of Congis, AK and AAP think tank has doled out the modern age version of fooling around by clearcut intelligent moves.

    AK is a third degree liar, and whatever good opinion I had about him earlier has vanished. While using Anna for his future political ends - mainly to gain popularity and people's confidence, he acted as though he has no political ambitions and asserted vehemently - because the point to be driven was sab neta chor hai, Congress and BJP are two sides of the same coin. Once that was established, which neta will then help the people and clean the system ? Hence jumps in AK for the sake of the people ! First, it is for CM of Delhi. Then, it will be for PM.

    It is a pattern - He will vehemently deny something [since that will be the need of the hour] and then infact will later opt for the very same thing [ Will not join politics; Will not do Identity politics; Will not take support of Congress - promised this on his children if I remember- video available; Will not run for PM - the latest etc]. The art lies in how convincingly he does that U turn by making it as people's choice thrusted upon him which he accepts in the spirit of service, and not that he is hungry for power. They have used MSM in the best way to propagate themselves which infact suits MSM as well. Such blatant lies if by popular BJP leader ? - MSM would have torn him apart.

    We know that these guys have ideas which are anti-national. Again, Social Media is the way out. Each one of us has the responsibility in whatever capacity it may be. They are wiser than the Congi variety and will come up with something new - thats the complexity. Neverthless, they have to be exposed.

  55. Today on 9th Jan 2014 Times Of India did hight. Declared Kejriwal PM of Indai heading secularity coalition govt ?? Really ?? based on survey in 8 cities ?? hollowness of this PR exercise is most of the results contradicting. If 58 % saying MODI should be PM how come they vote APP? They are many more contradiction in it if one analyze it ? Not sure if worth of doing it at all.

    from last 5-6 days TOI giving unprecedented coverage to AAP and Kejriwal. on 8 Jan when AAP was surrounded by controversy they changed there line of reporting and gave Arvinds clarification downplaying Prashants Kashmir comment. also this was reported on page No. 8 or 9 .
    Something similar happens with BJP they give front page along with Congress hit back statements means 2 times they project negatively MODI/BJP.
    On 26/27 december when MODI got relief for life about 2002 propaganda TOI didn't gave first page full credit / positive coverage instead they coupled it with cabinet decision on snoopgate? was that relevant?? This is classical example of biased reporting.

    Another case was when PM had his press-conference how was headline. In BOLD letters in first page taking on MODI> ??really ?? no clarification or counter from Arun Jaitly on first page instead it was done on page 8-9?? .(On contrary to this when TOI give +ve reporting to MODI they give piggy back comment from congress in same page hitting bacck at MODI ) So biased.

    Take Rambo case or any other ..TOI really sunk to lowest level. And we also have to hit back to Arnab goswami for his day dreaming orgasm of claiming clean .


    Yesterday 8 Jan Shetkari Swabhiman Sanghatan joined NDA. TOI didnt reported on first page ..they downplayed it. what whould have they done if it would have joined APP>? Raju Shetty is well followed by farmers of maharastra(this gave additional 20% farmers votes to NDA it was biggest boost to form state govt in Maharastra . I will say no need to even campaign cause farmers are very angry @ Pawar and @ congress plus NDA has cast equation right by having Ramdas Athavale ). Raju shetty gave mighty nightmares to Sharad Pawar ( who is Biggest crook of all) . So it was very important news instead they downplayed it.

    I request to you to take this up and have hard hitting article about times group.

    On 5 th Jan when BJP and MODI got biggest boost joined hands with Ramdev the first page of TOI was APP to contest maximus seats in LS. No mentioned of baba ramdev anywhere on 5 Jan paper . Also Modi had Sabha in Raigad invoking Shivaji swaraj. not reported properly local papers were good compared to TOI. I am not arguing that what should be there policy to print on first page or give coverage to all MODI rallies but accuracy and the way they want to report says a lot. few months back they used to twist and make bow out of nothing from MODI's speeches . Burkha and all comments. downplaying other things that he said.

    Take Rambo case or any other ..TOI really sunk to lowest level. And we also have to hit back to Arnab goswami for his day dreaming orgasm of claiming clean .

    About Arnab Goswami --=> yesterdays debate (8 Jan )about UP ministers going abroad for tour he was literally scolding SP guy from Mumbai saying listen to him .. when Arnab says or ask question listen to him if you don't want answer my question no need to join debate and hinting to leave " ..was his dialogues most arrogant behavior so far. He was saying what salman and madhuri will do in Saifia moshastav ?? he said that in tone which suggest that Madhuri is prostitute or Salman a B/C grade actors. So the counter question for him should have been IN Film Fare awards why they call the very same actors?? why they spent so much on awards functions ?? why to waste money when 70% population is hungry ?? he's argument was SP government should always stay in Mujjafarnagar and Akhilesh should eat only after last person in mujfarnar eats ?? really ?? Till the riot victim camps are there SP govt should not move one ..thats only city in UP they should care(I am not supporter of SP but line of argument should be correct if he says he is unbaised and clean )?? really >?? Then why don't he ask same question to Sonia and Congress about Uttarakhand tragedy ?? ppl there still broke but we can see delhi coridors enjoying life like never before. what relif work they did there? PPL in uttarakhand very angry about govt and Papu ging 500 croors for PR boost ?? Isnt it wastage of money . Does he has gutts to ask from where did got that money ?? (He asked for Saifai where did Mulayam govt money and his bungalow in mumbai is like 5 star ?? was this proper line of argument has he have any guts to ask the same to Rahul?? )

    Subramnyam swami and Lekhi gave tight slap to this moron.

    This was anticipated. They will now come out with countless surveysto project Modi in bad light. They will also hype desertion of bjp by bjp rebels.all of this needs to be managed tactically and politically, it was never going to be easy for Narendra modi.
    there are far too many people ganged up against him. Congress, allies , media , NGOs , china, us, Pakistan .... All anti nationals will make concerted efforts to stop him whatever it takes for their own survival.
    It will be upto Modi, bjp, its supporters , all nationalist minded individuals to outsmart evil anti national forced .
