Rebirth of Aam Aadmi

Rebirth of Aam Aadmi

IT is, indeed, instructive to analyse why the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) was decimated at the polls in Delhi. But the more important point to know is how the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has emerged with a bang: 67 seats in a house of 70! The BJP is down to just three...

Modi's chauvinism problem

AS the New Year dawns, it has become increasingly clear that India's new government faces a dilemma entirely of its own making -- one that its predecessor never had to confront. Narendra Modi's election as prime minister in May 2014 was initially hailed worldwide as marking the advent of a more business-friendly government in the world's largest democracy. Encouraged by Modi's pro-market sound bites -- he vowed to “replace red tape with a red carpet,” declared that the government has...

‘It’s fake news’

Amid broiling controversy and counter claims by rival blocs on whether chief of Indian ruling party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) called the BNP chairperson over phone, BJP chief Amit Shah today cleared the cloud, terming the news false. “No. No. This is a fake news. I have no any contact outside,” Amit Shah told private television channel Ekattor while replying to a question if he hand telephone conversation with BNP chief Khaleda Zia.

PRAFUL BIDWAI COLUMN

BJP's real agenda

SOME commentators have deplored the award of Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian honour, on Hindu Mahasabha founder Madan Mohan Malaviya. But many have welcomed its award to the Sangh Parivar's first Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee. They include even Amartya Sen, also a Bharat Ratna and Nobel Laureate, who called Vajpayee a “great statesman”. The first group is emphatically right—not so much because Malaviya was honoured 69 years after he died, but because the Mahasabha has for a century propagated...

Dhaka boundary settlement

Narendra Modi bites the bullet

IN telling the BJP workers in Assam that India will go ahead with the ratification of the land boundary agreement with Bangladesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has put the imperatives of national interest above the regional populism of his own party. The 119th amendment bill was placed in the Rajya Sabha late last year amidst vociferous opposition from the Trinamool Congress of Bengal and the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) in Assam. While the national leadership of the BJP did not...
