The Delhi Government Dilemma

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been playing a game of cat and mouse while attempting to form the government in Delhi. Having failed to conclude a decision in the past months, it has not done much favour to the residents of Delhi.

Million March: Bilawal Doing “Rahul Gandhi”?

The Bhuttos have been the most influential of names ever since Pakistan as a nation saw the light of the day. Bilawal’s grandfather, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was the ninth prime minister and the fourth president of Pakistan. Revered as Quaid-i-Awam, he founded the Pakistan People’s Party in 1967 and served as its chairman till 1979 when he was executed. Bilawal’s mother Benazir Bhutto was the 11th Prime Minister of Pakistan and had a strong support base across the world; so much so that her assassination attracted attention like no other assassination in Pakistan before. Many hearts broke even on this side of the border. She was, arguably, the most liked politician of Pakistan, in India. Asif Ali Zardari, father of Bilawal, was the 11th President of Pakistan, though he never really appealed to the public of Pakistan or elsewhere.

India And Israel:  Promising Defence Ties

The deal had been frozen since a scandal in 2006, when suspicions of corruption by Indian politicians surfaced claiming that they had taken bribes in return for advancing weapons deals. Those suspicions were never proven, and with Israeli-Indian ties flourishing the deal has come back into play.

En Dino Muzaffarnagar Ban: Jeopardy Of Free Speech

En Dino Muzaffarnagar, a documentary by late Shubhradeep Chakravorty, is the first to take a hammer blow by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) since the last general elections. The film has been banned on communal grounds, but the filmmakers and journalists who have had a chance to watch the film have other reservations. Clearly, the reasons are political. “It is highly and openly critical of one political party (BJP) and its top leadership by name and tends to give an impression of the said party’s involvement in communal disturbances. This is in gross violation of film certification guidelines. We see no infirmity in the order of CBFC”, said Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) after Shubhradeep Chakravorty appealed to it.

Modi’s “DiValley” In Kashmir: A Faux Pas?

Ever since the disaster surfaced, the valley has been sombre. The floods claimed 285 lives and affected around 3.5 lakh houses. According to the official estimates 95,000 of these houses have collapsed. Around 25 assembly constituencies have been affected. This visit is a means to raise the spirits of the people and provide the much needed relief work to the victims.

Jayalalitha Bail: A Case of Justice Half-Full, Half-Empty

Although the 2013 Supreme Court order, disqualifying elected representatives of their post and barring them from contesting elections for two-six years, was a response to tackle the pre-existing loopholes in the system, new gaps have emerged even when new measures have been taken in favour of political reform. The order prohibits the convicted of merely contesting in elections while there is no mention about the involvement of the same in campaigning for another candidate of his/her party.

Black Money Case: Switzerland Agrees To Reveal Names

Undisclosed income and tax evasion of thousands of crores was detected. More than 12,500 pieces of information regarding details of assets and payments received by Indian citizens in several countries were also obtained.

India Under AFSPA: An Era Of Shame

The Indian Army had its own fair share of contribution to the “Decade of Shame”. The Kunan Poshpora case of 1991 is a sordid testimony of the Human Rights violation by the Indian Army. In February 23, 1991 the Indian Army launched a series of search and interrogation operations in the Kunan Poshpora village of Kupwara district. What followed shook the entire world’s faith on humanity. As per official reports as far as 53 women were gang raped by Indian soldiers. The Human Rights Organisation reported the number to be well above 100. No level of justification can ever redeem in the eyes of the average Kashmir, the image of the Indian forces. What does one say to those little boys who saw their mothers being raped by hyenas? What possible explanations can one draw for such heinous acts?

Exit Polls: BJP Needs More Faces

But how long can the BJP rely on the Prime Minister to carry all the major work of the party? The over-dependence on Narendra Modi to deliver the goods in state elections every single time is bound to mount work load on the Prime Minister. Given that the Defence cum Finance cum Corporate Affairs Minister, Arun Jaitley is regaining his health, the Prime Minister has a lot on his plate. A lot of work is supposed to be done to bring the economy back on track, empower defence, and work towards human development.

Nipping Alcoholic Stress To Grip The Election Fever

The positive impact of election fever can be seen in declaring Gurgaon dry for three days from Monday post 6 pm till Wednesday 6pm . The closure of pubs and bars (including 5 star hotels) will most likely ensure a smooth functioning of electoral process, which would then prove vital for framing a stable government in Gurgaon.
