Impt. facts about #ShaheenBagh Protest:

1) Dissolve #BJP Govt.
2) Defame India globally by faking 'injustice to Muslims'.
3) Provoking Hindus with a malign intention.
4) Attention from Western Media.
5) Break India

The entire protest was pre-planned with a...
specific motive & it was all possible bcoz of the support they rec'd from anti forces like PFI, #Congress, #IslamicRadicals, #Pakistan, etc. Their intention is loud & clear, they wanted to destabilize the current Govt. & break India into pieces.

But there's one thing that..
our hon'ble SC did wrong by sending 'Representatives' to hear out the protestors which are not required at all as it was an #Unconstitutional protest & that too of those ppl who have been spewing venom against India. SC must have been strict with their stand but they..

Speaking at @UCLA about #RSS, its importance, its violence & its origins:

"Violence in which RSS is implicated includes assassinations, bombings & even pogroms against Christians, Muslims, & anyone who stands up against its xenophobic agenda."

Full vid:
@UCLA "It’s no surprise that the #RSS is responsible for such shocking violence considering its ideological ties to European fascism.... The correlation between fascism in the West and Hindu nationalism in the East traces all the way back to the paramilitary’s origins in the 1920s."
@UCLA “'Traditional muscle power of the #BJP has always been the #RSS,' said a former US ambassador to India. Its role is much broader than that, tho. Today, the RSS doesn’t just provide boots on the ground to help win elections — it pulls the strings of the party’s elected officials."

Thread👉The MSP Fallacy

If an M.P asks a question in Parliament regarding #Farmer Income, it is a cast iron rule that @nstomar(#Agri minister) starts his reply with "Govt announces Minimum Support Prices for 22 mandated crops"; what he doesn't say is that only 6% farmers get MSP
@nstomar @Devinder_Sharma @waglenikhil @MonaAmbegaonkar @jayantrld @_YogendraYadav @GauravPandhi @jyotiyadaav @sakshijoshii @vijaita @svaradarajan Mantri Ji mentions "Union Budget 2018 announced to fix the MSP at 1.5 times of the cost of production". What mantri ji forgets to mention is that MSP is still fixed acc to A2+FL cost(input cost+family labour)rather than C2 costs(which include interest on value of land & machines)

Who are the new #BJP voters & what motivates their choice?

Pradeep Chhibber & I in our @StudiesIndian paper use @LoknitiCSDS survey and find that a new kind of ethnopolitical majoritarianism now binds BJP. This is distinct from the old Hindu Nationalist plank.

Thread (1/5)
Using the NES 2019 data, we created FIVE kinds of BJP voters.

The BJP's social base has now become broad-based & mirrors the Hindu society. The party has substantially increased its support base among rural, poor and lower caste voters. (2/5)
We argue that more than the immediate context of policies such as Ujjawala, Rally 'round the flag effect due to Pulwama, & BJP's resource advantage ... the long-term ideological shift marked by changes in the demographic composition of voters ... explains the BJP's rise. (3/5)

Majeed Ullah Khan (@MBTparty President) Statement on #SupremeCourt Refusing Interim Stay on #CAA; Challenges @AmitShah to Visit Ongoing #ShaheenBaghProtests to Face Public Instead of TV Debates. #CAA_NRC_Protests Read Full: /1
He contended that #ConstitutionofIndia is “Common Sense” codified. It's clear that #CitizenshipAmendmentAct goes against numerous Articles. It's appalling that Court deferred hearings in refusal to put interim stay on draconian #CAA and modified #NationalPopulationRegister /2
People’s trust in a truly secular, non-partisan #SupremeCourt is wavering. Moreover, refusal on interim #CAA stay has common public concerned regarding growing, free reign of a bigoted, right-wing #RSS-#BJP specter looming over nation that we continue to battle on all fronts. /3

#JNUVioence , Late #JJ and #Dravidians - this tweet may not be appreciated at all - more than sometimes truth hurts and it is bitter too; the comparatives which i am quoting may not be palatable to many - but then it is my view on the subject which is #Violence and that alone 2/3
2. i have seen late #JJ at close quarters for over 2 decades, both as a star and as a politician - she was mentored by a legend #MGR and he had his own doubts whether she will be handle the mantle - she did great credits to her mentor and teacher - and out did his 3/4
3. his achievements in more than one area - but alas she fell to an emoitional quotient and that was her nemesis, indeed; she was one who was not scared of political reprecussions at any given point of time - 1.2L government servants - know this in reality - 4/5

BJP's failure in winning 'intellectual' debate became most apparent in #CAA. Reason lies with party. I worked in this space 4 too long to kno how long term agendas are set. Why intellectualism is equated to #Left leaning among a section in #WestBangal & #India. 1/n
I have been consistent in saying that #CAA is a major correction to the historic neglect to human tragedies from sustained flight of #Hindu & other minority from #EastPakistan/#Bangladesh. It's unfinished job of #Partition. 2/n
#Secularism will be threatened only when #India wil institutionally discriminate between two sets of citizens, as it happened in #Pakistan & #Bangladesh not by virtue of giving citizenship 2 d discriminated/persecuted in this 2 countries born out of discriminatory principles. 3/n

My own position on #CAA2019 has been - it is sound in principle (read @pratimbose article👇) and nothing wrong constitutionally (as explained by none other than Harish Salve). But, I anticipate serious issues in implementation. Therefore, other than the #NorthEast #CABProtests /2
#CABPolitics e.g. in #Assam where it is a live issue (but religion agnostic as they are against all immigrants changing the demographics of the region) for the rest of India it is largely an academic issue. Therefore, #CABProtests in the name of “secularism” ill-conceived 3/n
3/n Besides, #CAA2019 has been passed by an act of Parliament and not by any Presidential Diktat. If it has to be undone - it cannot be through violence and vandalism. Those upholding the Constitutional values - must also adopt democratic means and not promote mobocracy #CAB 4/n

1. Thousands of forest dwellers in #Jharkhand are at risk of being evicted from their lands due to failure of the state Govt. to fix issues relating to the FRA. This issue has been below the radar, so let me explain why it's imp #JharkhandAssemblyPolls
2. Remember the SC order in Feb bcoz which put over 1 million Adivasis & other forest dwellers at risk of eviction? Among the states which were asked to respond to that order was the state of #Jharkhand, which is going to polls today.
3. In mid-July, Jharkhand filed an affidavit in SC stating that over 16k forest rights claims were rejected by Gram Sabhas. Assuming rights of at least 4 were affected by 1 claim, then rights of 64,000 forest dwellers were denied. #JharkhandElection2019

“Unlike you people, we take a break at this time of the year,” said Samir Pal, one of the idol-makers who earn their livelihood from Kumartuli. “But this year, I wish I was still working because we hardly made any money during Durga Puja. #GST #BJP
We paid almost double for raw materials because of GST (Goods and Services Tax) but were unable to pass on the burden to customers because idols are exempt from GST-Samir Pal #BJP
He further rued: “Parties (customers) think nothing of spending lakhs of rupees on decorating pandals, but they grumble if we hike the price of idols even by a few thousand rupees. No wonder our children don’t want to take up our profession.”

There are 2 fools around,1st one is @uddhavthackeray who thinks his MLAs will vote in his favour during floor test,if he himself has no morality or loyalty twards his own father or his party’s ideology,why wuld his MLAs have the same towards him?Shock awaits him! 1/4
2nd fool is @INCIndia who foolishly believe they will win floor test,they have everything to lose,their”secular”credentials,loss of face after tying up with communal #ShivSena +whatever little is left of their votebank. @ahmedpatel should know Sr.Pawar better. #RahulGandhi
3/4 @BJP4India has no choice at the moment except #NCP to give a stable govt.
Only 1 who has everything to gain is #NCP & Pawars,thus the games,delay tactics,good cop bad cop by both Pawars till they get a better deal frm whichever coalition.They have secured themselves both ways

A THREAD: Spent the whole day today at the @HouseForeign Subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific, and Non-Proliferation . Chairman @BradSherman (D) and Ranking Member @RepTedYoho (R) hosted a hearing on “Human Rights in South Asia.” 90% of the conversation revolved around J&K.
Assist. Sec. Alice Wells @State_SCA & Assist. Sec. @DRL_AS for Human Rights were the first witnesses to testify. They highlighted the importance of the India-US relationship, but expressed grave concern for the grave human rights violations after the Aug 5th decision...
to revoke Article 35A and Article 370. They called upon India to release political prisoners, allow foreign journalists entry, and emphasized their extreme disapproval of the situation on the ground. Sec. @DRL_AS called the situation a “humanitarian crisis.”
