In guise of angst, anything goes.
Removal of Article 370 was first demanded by Bharatiya Jana Sangh; SP Mookerji died for it. It has been a constant in BJS and later BJP manifesto.
Ram Mandir was a VHP issue in 1987-88. BJP adopted it via Palampur Resolution in 1989.
What would angsters have done had they been around when #BJP was down to 2 MPs in Lok Sabha?
Or even earlier when BJS was decimated and party lost nearly all legislators in Rajasthan after Bhairon Singh declared support for zamindari abolition?
Or when a young LK Advani spurned a (then) promising alliance with Ram Rajya Parishad because Swami Karpatri Maharaj openly advocated casteism and untouchability?
Or, when a nascent BJS bravely confronted the powerful Swami Narayan sect over temple entry?

TMC had said 'We won't let Bengal turn into Gujarat '
They turned it to Syria, instead 😡😡.

#WATCH Union Minister V Muraleedharan's car attacked by locals in Panchkhudi, West Midnapore


(Video source: V Muraleedharan)
West Bengal | "TMC goons attacked my convoy in West Midnapore, broken windows, attacked personal staff. Cutting short my trip," tweets Union Minister V Muraleedharan
If a minister's convoy can be attacked, then, who is safe in Bengal? This is state-sponsored violence. We condemn violence in Bengal. Special measures should be taken to bring the culprits to justice: Union Minister & BJP leader Prakash Javadekar

{West Bengal HIRA vs RERA}

Supreme Court bench led by Justice DY Chandrachud to deliver judgment in plea challenging the constitutional validity of West Bengal Housing Industry Regulation Act, 2017 since it is similar to Central law RERA

#SupremeCourt @FightForRERAInd
The moot question of law in the case is:

Can a state, in the name of cooperative federalism, enact a legislation under the Concurrent List to occupy the same field that the Parliament has occupied?

I thank people of #BolpurSantiniketan & accept their wish & verdict in all humility. BJP polled nearly 95000, having brought the margin of difference of 2016 down from 50,000 to about 22,000, this push forward, in a month, is in itself satisfying, my gratitude to our karyakartas!
I have been deeply moved by people's affection & support. Decades of struggle in #WestBengal from BJS to BJP, has resulted in the BJP emerging as the principle opposition party in the Legislative Assembly, this is a major step which will define Bengal's politics from now onwards.
My commitment to & faith in PM Modi's vision of #SonarBangla remains undiminished, I shall continue to work for #WestBengal's present & future, remain vigilant & responsive to her needs & aspirations. The party which has won must not prop itself up on fear & intimidation.

People are dying left and right, now is not the time to rejoice. Bow is not the time to cheer the victory over fascism, because the fight is not yet done. @narendramodi is still in power and he is single handedly responsible for the bloodbath in the streets, for the queues ...
... outside crematoriums. We have a bigger fight to win, a much bigger mountain to climb, namely... the battle against covid. SOS calls are still echoing the channels of Twitter, rural India is going down silently, the #Sosindia cry is bigger than the #ElectionResult ! No...
... celebrations until the death march stops. Congrats to the people of #WestBengal #Kerala and every other people who oppose fascism.

This is what I hear in majority of journo whatsapp groups - Gosh we are suffering in #WestBengal. There have been no jobs. But no, we don't want outsiders. Seriously?!
I've been in media for 30 years and in my 22 years as a journalist in Mumbai, this is what I saw -

Majority of editors in print and TV were Bongs. And they were clear in hiring more Bongs - colleagues, families and even current and former girlfriends. Such was the trend that we joked that the official language in Times, DNA would be Bengali. The strategy was effective
#Mumbai and #Maharashtra embraced them. So did Benguluru and Delhi. No one said 'outsider'
When majority of deskies for DNA Mumbai launch landed from Kolkata, we worked together to ensure they understood #Maharashtra politics. We were a team. Vada paav was shared. It was fun

Thread #Clubhouse chats.
Since last night there is much excitement & curiosity about #Clubhouse chat of #PrashantKishore & various journalists about #WestBengalPolls
Here are various recordings
1: In which Sakshi Joshi asks Prashant about #MamtaBanerjee 's toilet habits.
2: In which #PrashantKishore admits that minority / Muslim appeasement had become a trend in Indian politics to acquire power & finally Hindus are awakening.
3: In which #PrashantKishore admits that #Modi is quite popular across the world and has a cult following. He also mentions that #Modi is quite popular in #WestBengal as well & there is an anti incumbency wave against #MamtaBanerjee

I think #BrightWing shows the desperation of #PK. I think PK isn’t happy with a client who doesn’t listen to him. He is a marketer but has a rotten product at hand. He wanted to turn #MamataBanerjee to victim, Mamata decided to play Gangstah again.
So off goes the plaster and out comes the gloves as #MamataBanerjee urges the cadre to be aggressive and violent even against the Central Forces. The strategist seems to have been told to shut up and follow the election #WestBengal way. The goons, gangs and violence.
A strategist hanging out with so called neutral journalist so keen to ensure #MamataBanerjee wins #WestBengalPolls for more than an hour, on a day before polls. Is he hinting out that the candidate has slipped out of his hands when he hints attack on CAPF in Bengal?

As usual @BJP4India has thrown the entire might into state assembly elections. Leading from the front are PM @narendramodi and HM @AmitShah criss crossing the country from #Assam to #WestBengal to #TamilNadu to #Kerala. Did you see this frenzy in @INCIndia? That's the difference.
BJP's leaders incl party chief @JPNadda UP CM @myogiadityanath MP CM @ChouhanShivraj Tripura CM @BjpBiplab Assam CM @sarbanandsonwal campaigned in the states going to polls. Union Minister's @rajnathsingh @nsitharaman @smritiirani @PiyushGoyal @girirajsinghbjp all helped out.
Party MPs like @M_Lekhi was roped in to campaign in Pandalam and tribal areas of Kerala. BJP's election juggernaut is an awesome combination that does not end with its leaders. It filters down to the dedicated, hardworking Karyakarthas and panna pramukhs. No wonder, BJP wins.

As election fever rises and #Kerala #TamilNadu and #WestBengal go to the polls, we're bringing you an analysis of manifestos of major parties on their commitments to tech innovation, digital rights, internet access, privacy and cybersecurity.
Despite a rising number of young voters and Indian internet users, political parties have been slow to move on digital rights. Before the 2019 general election we drafted an agenda making an appeal across party lines to prioritize digital rights.…
Following are our key learnings surrounding the promises made by political parties. We follow a model in which a “+” indicates a positive move, “-” a negative one, and “?” indicates one which does not present a clear foreseeable consequence or is ambiguous.

Located on the western bank of the Hooghly River, Kalna is a beautiful city in #WestBengal . Also known as Ambika Kalna after the Goddess Maa Ambika Kaali. Kalna is most famous for its intricate terracotta temples built in the late 18th century by the Maharajas of Bardhaman.
The most exquisite temple in Kalna is 108 Shiva Temples Complex. An architectural marvel that was built by Maharaja Tej Chandra Bahadur in 1809. Its a combination of two concentric circles, each of which has small temples dedicated to Lord Shiva.
A splendid art work, the temple creates an optical illusion of infinity as the concentric cirles form an eternal ring with no beginning or end. The small temples represent beads of a rosary and the walls have the carvings from the scenes of epics Ramayana and Mahabharata.

Caught a little of the #BengalClub Annual Panel Discussion on FB. Political posturing apart - irony dies a thousand deaths when the @CPIM_WESTBENGAL panellist @BikashranjanBh4 calls #AbbasSiddiqui “secular” and says the youth of #WestBengal are again turning towards the left 2/n
2/n which world do they live in and what do they think Bengali youth smoke these days. @DrAMSinghvi was, of course most balanced (with @INCIndia having no stakes in #WestBengal anymore - @adhirrcinc pls note) except for his carping on ED, CBI and farm laws but impressed by 3/n
3/n the @AITMC panellist @SantanuSenMP talking with utter conviction about the development of #WestBengal across all sectors by #TrinamoolCongress. The ever suave @DinTri repeated #NarendraModi’s reference to #SyamaPrasadMukherjee as the founder of Jan Sangh (by default BJP) 4/n
