Although, the Congress is out of Power from 7 years and it should remain so forever but sometimes I really wonder, "Is out of Power Congress more dangerous to our Nation or the Congress in Power?"
- Rahul Gandhi visited JNU in Feb 2016 to support those so called students who had shouted," Bharat tere Tukde Honge, Insha Allah, Insha Allah".

- Salman Khurshid spitted venom against his own PM and praised Pak PM Nawaz Sharif for fighting terrorism in most effective way...
..when he gave lecture at Jinnah Institute in Islamabad in Nov 2015. What was more hurtful for Indians was that he didn't say a single word on terrorism India had been facing in Kashmir &instead gave an impression as if Pak is ready for negotiation but India under Modi is not.

The stand off between @Twitter and the #Indian government is symptomatic of a shrinking space for dissent. In an early response they temporarily blocked a respected news outlet and several voices of peasants, indigenous peoples and other classes of protected characteristics. 1/14
@Twitter Now Twitter has blocked a number of accounts from viewing in India, including that of a sitting member of parliament, after committing not to block politicians, activists and media. Political dissent and independent media need, primarily, to engage with their home audiences. 2/14
@Twitter Twitter needs to offer a neutral, level playing field for all political actors, with the same set of norms across markets, rather than faciliate repression of democratic dissent. In the US they de-platform a sitting President, and in #India they are open to bullying? 3/14

Key takeaways from the #GretaToolKitLeaks and #ShaheenBagh #KathuaCase #FarmerProtests for Pro-India and Pro-Sanatan Samskriti adherents: (1/n)

1) Our lot severely lacks a bona fide PR and Communications Agency which can be leveraged.
2) Those against us clearly leverage professional PR and Communications agencies and have deals with news syndicates. Their reach is much broader than ours

2/n
3) They are very organized and very disciplined whereas we are highly disorganized and highly undisciplined. Each person is running their own "fight the wrong narrative" battle alone.

#Breaking | Navneet Singh, a 34-year-old #farmer protester from Uttarakhand, was shot and killed at ITO this afternoon, acc to an eyewitness. The shooting took place outside the Andhra Education Society on Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Marg, he said. #FarmerProtest
Harmanjit Singh said he was walking alongside a tractor that Navneet was driving when the latter was shot. The tractor overturned. Harmanjit added that the Delhi Police attempted to take custody of the body but the protesters stopped them. #TractorRally #FarmerProtests
Harmanjit and Navneet were part of the sit-in at the Ghazipur site. "We were proceeding peacefully," he said. "The police fired tear-gas shells at us, lathi charged us."

The Andhra Education Society has two CCTV cameras outside the entrance that would have caught the incident.

#FarmBill
My Take :
1/n
1. All and every action of opposition over last 7 years has had only purpose ,target Vote Banks.( VB)s

2. Vote Banks in India as in blocks have every thing to do with literacy or rather illetracy.
2/n
3. VBs are broadly divided into , Minority and Majority , and Majority is further divided into diferente castes, communities , Dalits ,SC /ST

4. If there is one VB which is all encompassing all Divisions ,its Farmers who gave been neglected ,exploited,over the last 70 yrs.
3/n
5. One of the greatest " capacity building" exercises of the #ModiGovt has been to deliver
the habitual Poll Promises of 70 years,

Roti ,Kapda, Makan , Bijli ,Sadak ,Paani and more
Bank , Mobile , Dawai , Padhai to this Farmer VB at a fremetic piace.

Questions no one wants to answer :

1. Being very much surplus in wheat and paddy production why should Punjab not shift to other cultivations ?
2. How long and to what extent can FCI keep buying the two items when stocks are overflowing in their own godowns.?
3. Should not Govt prescribe quota upto which only FCI will buy?
4. Is not this the time to change crop patterns in Punjab when subsoil water is going down mostly on acct of paddy cultivation ?
BTW some predictions say Punjab will be a desert in 15-20 yrs
5.Why can't we give ample opportunities to marginalized farmers of other states?
6.What business opportunists have in farmers protest?
7.If the law is so bad why so many farmers org. are in favor ?
8.Why few are hijacking while majority of farmers don't have issue with the Law?

Opening my heart out as a marketer-

Khalistan/Farm Bill Offline/ Online marketing campaign 2020

I feel utterly violated of my digital content rights for spreading malicious Anti-India viral propaganda.

How many more such disturbing marketing campaigns to come in India?
@narendramodi ban 'BIG 5' International marketing agencies in India for perpetually propagating Hinduphobia in India & world.

Please @narendramodi investigate& take legal action against Sonia Gandhi's @INCIndia& Pakistan for strategically planning the Khalistan/Farm bill offline
& online marketing campaign 2020 that was poorly executed & ended with a flop Bharat Bandh politically planned one day before Sonia's birthday today, 9th December like she does every year?

Since there's so much misinformation on the #FarmerProtests, aided and abetted by the idiotic 'Thank a farmer if you had dinner' argument, here's a list of proper pieces I've come across on the protests
1) The need for Punjab to diversify

indianexpress.com/article/opinio…
2) The ambiguous heroism of the fabled Indian farmer

The #FarmerProtests seem to have put the BJP govt on the back foot because here it's the farmer who they need to dehumanise and vilify. But unfortunately for them, there is no popular prejudice in the public consciousness against farmers, unlike say Islamophobia. 1/
We know most of the times it is Islamophobia that is used to dehumanise the opposition, whether it fits the story (CAA, NRC, "Love Jihad") or not (it was forcefully invoked even to distract from the failure to appropriately deal with a religion-agnostic pandemic a while ago). 2/
Even in case of the #FarmerProtests, Islamophobia would have been somehow invoked, if not for the fact that the Sikh identity was already attached to it. Otherwise, they'd have attributed the protest to "the Islamo-commie nexus" and effortlessly sold it to their supporters. 3/
