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.

Here is a #Thread on how I read the emerging verdict from

1. @BJP4India was TRUMPed by what could be seen as the beginning of a new era of post-#Covid Politics

2. This election will be remembered for cutting deep into BRAND MODI

3. At an April 17 rally in Asansol, Modi gleefully commended the crowd for gathering in huge numbers. On that day India reported 2.6 lakh Covid cases n 1,500 deaths.
His callous remarks are now etched in public memory — a Himalayan blunder that would hurt for a long time.

#AssemblyElections2021 — Takeaways:

4. Money can buy votes, but not always win an election

5. Bengal trends point to a failure of the male-dominated Hindutva brigade to understand women power in Bengal.
Maa Durga vs Jai ShriRam narrative backfired.

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.

What is interesting is that the leftist journalists stand outside ramshackle houses, watching impoverished bodies, poverty written all over, and then they shove mike in the mouth of scared people and ask- Do you think @MamataOfficial has done development here? #Nandigram
Here are some details from Haldia Development Authority report (2018). "Most of the household level potable water supply in Nandigram I & II Blocks is
through tubewell. Presence of iron is often reported in many locations" - Is there #Hindu polarisation if you oppose TMC?
#Sanitisation Villages with lower level of
access to safe sanitation facilities and drainage are on high risk to contaminate the surface
water sources. - Reporter- You want to vote for @BJP4India due to polarisation? #WestBengalPolls

Hold @pbmehta in high regard. Also @PramathSinha founder trustee and many others at @AshokaUniv. Don’t know the circumstances of his quitting. But conversely, as many are saying, cancel culture of “non left” voices at liberal institutions a reality globally 2/n #PratapBhanuMehta
2/n Even in India how many Right leaning voices will find even a lateral entry into into left dominated academia, think tanks, NGOs (local and global) and media?That’s why the angst against a handful of institutions(state and private) that provide platform to non-left voices 3/n
3/n Also in corporate India the discomfort with pro-government views is palpable and considered “career limiting”. Honchos who come out supporting #Modi are accused of doing so either because of an agenda or under pressure. Socially, they are mocked and made to feel defensive 4/n

Helpless Hindus of Garfa, Selimpur Crying, Protesting. Welcome To Mamata Banerjee's Secular West Bengal.
@UnSubtleDesi @swati_gs @SanjeevSanskrit @prafullaketkar @RashtraJyoti @DivyaSoti
Kolkata Police (Garfa Thana) Gave Excuse That - As There's A Masjid Beside An Open Public Field Named 'Aikotan', So They Percieve That Hindus Celebrating 20yrs-Old #Mahashivratri2021 Might Cause Communal Riots.

Have been watching the evolution of @DilipGhoshBJP with admiration. Over the last four years he has really come of age and emerged as a leader to reckon with in #WestBengal vindicating his selection as @BJP4Bengal President. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElection2021
2/n PM #NarendraModi takes stage - referring to the #UttarakhandAvalanche drawing a link between the source of the Ganga in #Uttarakhand and its meeting with the sea near #Haldia. #ModiInBengal #WestBengalElection2021
3/n As per @DilipGhoshBJP the gathering is around 3 lakhs from the 3 districts of erstwhile undivided #Medinipur. Impressive mobilisation. Certainly @SuvenduWB's entry would have made a big difference. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElection2021
