TRAI Recommendations: High on Principles, Low on Application Potential

Initially, it remains to be seen if the government would be keen in turning these recommendations into regulations. After all, these recommendations won’t allow political parties to run television channels. Bharatiya Janata Party may not own any channel, but parties are known to show mutual respect and keep each other’s interests intact. Also, it isn’t mere conjecture that political parties are close to corporate. Regulations against corporate ownership won’t really fare well with the government.

Can 8000 Crore Lead Kashmir To Stability?

Jammu and Kashmir is a state in India that has faced an extreme degree of violence and instability. Insurgency has been the dominant characteristic of the state for over half a century now. What began on the eve of the day of freedom for both Pakistan and India is continuing even till today, 67 years later. Before one comes to any sort of judgment, it is rather important to understand the nature of instability in the region. The instability is not a result of terrorism or economic factors, although at times one might be led to believe that it is. The nature of insurgency in J&K is that of identity that has given rise to identity politics. It is now a state caught as a bone of contention between the two rivals: Pakistan and India.

UP Communal Clashes: The Political Nexus

The tensions have been high, particularly in Western UP, and have occurred relatively close to the bypoll seats, according to a series of investigative reports by the Indian Express. 60 percent of the six hundred communal incidents since the Lok Sabha results have out-broken near the seats due for bypoll elections.

Delhi Elections: AAP A Credible Contender?

It is probable that the capital may go to a re-election, given that there are no signs of any party approaching the Lieutenant Governor, Najeeb Jung to form a government in the capital. Provided that the Delhi residents are set to vote again in next to no time, the results might not be as fascinating as the previous elections that were held in December 2013. The last assembly elections saw the emergence of the phenomenon of AAP – a government of the common man, bringing its 18-point agenda, promising to fulfil aam aadmi’s (common man) aspirations. Now, December appears to be a distant memory.

Politicians And Biographies: Claim To Unveil The Truth?

This is evident in the fact that the chairperson of the previous ruling coalition, the United Progressive Alliance (UPA), Ms. Sonia Gandhi never gave a media interview for ten years. All we had in the name of public engagement were the votaries of the party and a bunch of spokespersons who would deliver the same pre rehearsed sections every evening. It is no wonder then, that with such lack of transparency that the entire administration was enshrouded in such mystery. No one in the general public knew how things functioned in the Lutyens’ Delhi.
