#SupremeCourt declines to hear Harsh Mander today in his petition after SG Tushar Mehta adduces transcripts of his reported speech at #Jamia wherein he said there is no trust left in the courts & that ultimate justice has to be on the streets.

#CJI: We will sort this out first.
#SupremeCourt tells Mander's lawyer that if this is what he feels about the courts then it will have to be decided first whether he should be given a hearing at all.

A separate petition on #DelhiViolence to be heard now.
As advocate Karuna Nundy, appearing for Harsh Mander, seeks time to verify the alleged hate speech, SG Mehta says this is strange that he wants time for verifying his own speech but wants FIRs against everyone immediately.

Guy at BSNL office was worried over his personal issues, started talking to me on his own, about lay offs, privatization, future of LIC, a lot. Said govt unable to control but later said, 'look at Pakistan, they've to mortgage all, even roads, we're much better' #Media #Narrative
He was explaining to me that in India, we're yet to sell railways but in Pakistan even 'roads sold' to keep the country's economy afloat'. Must have picked up from channels. So this comparison always makes people content, 'unse behtar hain', without stepping foot out of India.
This is the super narrative--comparison has to be with Pakistan, look at how others have sunk & we are still not doing badly. Even within locality it happens, people are sometimes more jealous about neighbour's accomplishment. So playing on these emotions. Truly amazing.

No longer is #Modi merely the “Butcher of Gujarat” — under the reign of his #RSS regime, he has become the Butcher of India.... Fascism is not rising in India — it has risen. And the threat of genocide looms large.

Full vid:
Since #Modi rose to power as the Butcher of Gujarat, it was no secret how he would govern India nor should it be any surprise that his administration is now marked by extreme violence. Nor should we be shocked that India is on the brink of genocide.
A legal method for cleansing the country of Muslims is exactly what the #BJP intended the #CAA and the #NRC to provide.

And they’ve made no secret of it.

2016 के #JNU नारे को #Bjp #गोदी_मीडिया ने खूब चलाया, #DelhiPolice ने 3.5 साल के बाद #FIR दायर की,उसकी फ़ाइल #ArvindKejriwal सरकार के पास 2019 में भेजी जो केंद्र के appoint किये अफसर के पास जाती है, उन्ही अफसरो ने उसका अभ्यास करके राज्य के गृहमंत्री

@SatyendarJain जी को मामले में सलाह दी,जिसे अप्रत्यक्ष रूप से मानना बंधनकारी है,फिर #CM की मंजूरी दी जाती है।
अगर अफसर की राय से अलग अपनी राय रखे, तो केंद्र और राज्य के बीच टकराव की स्तिति उत्पन्न होगी। जिसके चलते दिल्ली सरकार बर्खास्त भी हो सकती है।

Impt. facts about #ShaheenBagh Protest:

1) Dissolve #BJP Govt.

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: tl.gd/n_1sr4hba /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

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

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
