1/9 I have purchased a car very recently. So, I went through the usual motions of a large and involved purchase at the time of my decision. This might also give you an insight into the auto sector slowdown #AutoSector #SlowDown #Economyslowdown #economy
2/9 Clean fuel vehicles are coming: Hydrogen fuel cell, & #ElectricVehicles (#BEV & #PHEV) are coming sooner than we thought. Govt envisions an electric mobility future for us & is taking a lot of steps to push EVs under #FAME2 scheme. To reduce pollution & fuel import bill.
3/9 If I buy a regular petrol/diesel car, it may get obsolete sooner than I imagined. Eg: NCR banned 10yr old #diesel vehicles to improve air quality, push towards electric. All this affects resale value of the #cars. Hence, I considered pushing the life of my current car

Festus will now be LAUGHING when he sees the same Buhari😜…
"This writer is of the view that Tinubu’s political flesh is being prepared for a political barbecue by a Machiavellian General who, though taciturn and weak, scores high rating in mauling his opponents" @fesadedayo PA to @SPNigeria @SenatorLawan 🤣🤣🤣🤣
"The statement read, “The appointments were made based on merit, experience, track record and competency of Aji and Adedayo.
“They are needed by the Senate President in executing his planned legislative agenda.”.......@fesadedayo is HIGHLY EXPERIENCE in abusing APC & PMB🤣🤣🤣

My last set of tweets (hopefully) on #Elections2019 about what (according to me) makes the Modi wave unstoppable, what next and what the opposition needs to learn
Some of my views are in this thread in detail so will try to just summarize these and add a few more things not covered earlier

1. What works for Modi

- Pseudo liberal belief about RW that they vote for Modi because they are 'Hindutva' waadis who only care about Ram Mandir is nonsense. Yes there are people who vote for Modi who want Ram Mandir to be built but there is also a large set that doesn't care

So you're thinking about voting in the #EuropeanElection2019 ?

You know you want to vote for a pro-Remain party, but you're not sure which one...

Here's a guide to the best tactical voting strategy in each area. Aim: maximise the likelihood of pro-Remain parties winning MEPs.
Whoever you end up voting for, the key thing is to go and vote! And if you can persuade friends, colleagues and family to vote too, that's even better...

Know an army of 2004 fans out there. They are hoping for a resurrection like 2004. Tough life being a faithful.

2004 was easy picking. 2019 seems to be a Royal pickling.
2004 had no counter narratives from the people. It was fought between politicians. 1/5 #Elections2019
Social media did not exist. No counter narratives. BJP ran history’s most boastful campaign. Two men, Advani&Mahajan thought they had won before it began. And, most importantly, media like NDTV were puppies. To them, PM was Pramod Mahajan. Barkha & Rajdeep were at PM’s feet. 2/5
The congress fought with its back to the wall. It was a spirited battle. The leader knew her weaknesses. She underplayed herself. Her political Hand was placed on he people’s conscience. She did not indulge in hyperbole. Spoke from a script with facts. Think of Rahul now. 3/5

Is it true that Yuva Vahini and BJP-RSS cadre is campaigning AGAINST @myogiadityanath across UP?

RSS ordered? Fixing by Shah-Doval duo? (Like they did with @nitin_gadkari?) Or is it a Congi plot? 🤔

There are WhatsApp videos & messages floated around by IT cell in UP accusing @myogiadityanath of betraying Ram Lalla!

Who is behind this sustained campaign?

I think this is another attempt by Shah-Doval duo to "fix" a potential candidate for PM. Just like with Gadkari!
In case he loses #Elections2019, is it possible Modi is manouvering to replace @myogiadityanath as UP CM?

Fort Gujarat is secure. In case they lose Delhi, withdraw forces to a fortress UP closer to the capital and live to fight another day?

Is that the game being played?

Whilst we are up in arms about the possibility of voters voting more than once & other frustrations with yesterday's election, here's a smallernyana thread about some of the issues.
#SAElections2019 #Elections2019 @IECSouthAfrica
@sthembete is the authority on such
Some people are alleged to have voted more than once. This is due to the fact that the IEC system has a couple of loopholes that are quite frankly unacceptable. Firstly, the key issue underpinning the integrity of the system is that one can only vote once. That's the fair way.
To ensure this, the IEC has a duty 2 create systems that can immediately reject repeat voters. This ideally should be through a centralized system that updates immediately when I cast a vote. No such system currently exists. Rather the IEC has ancient systems prone to be bypassed

so we Filipinos have to suffer the inefficiencies of transpo, power, water, telco among other everyday. So here is a thread on how public services/utilites can be improved in this country #meralco #globe #brownout #manilawater #passPSAamendments
nakakainis na diba? lalo na kung taxpayer ka! so here is a solution which has been in the works for years now but some people choose to sit on it especially elections
how do we solve this? one way is to amend the Public Service Act or the 83-year old Commonwealth Act 146. passed in 1936, few years after JPEnrile was born. Anyways, this is the mother law of laws governing public utilities/service.

#Election2019 will be like no other.
Lutyens Elite have never felt so threatened, as now.
They’ve come on to the battlefield to fight the bitter fight, deceit, treachery, claw, bite, whatever it takes to protect their islands of privilege.

This thread on the Existential War…
In 2006 a senior much known bureaucrat from a long lineage of bureaucrats, with a few books to his credit, surrounded by a fawning audience had declared that there was no country as wonderful as India.
The reasons he put forth had nothing to do with the country’s culture, diversity, history, art, architecture, cuisine but were chillingly cynical as was the grating laughter all round …& have remained with me all these years.
