Modi: The lockdown was the only method left for us.

(I failed to take preventive steps)

Modi: "The lockdown will be economically costly, but the NATION will have to bear the cost. This is to save YOUR life."

(YOU will have to pay for MY mistakes)

Not questioning lockdown, but drawing attention to questions that need asking.

How did we get here? Why were preventive steps not taken? Who is accountable?

How is it being implemented? Is it done sensibly & sensitively, considering ground realities & vulnerable people?
THEY'll say "this is an emergency, not the time to question the govt."

False. There is no wrong time to ask right questions.

In fact, we are in this crisis bcuz we didn't question the govt. Let's not repeat the mistake.

With #HXChallenge about to wrap up, here's an overview of what we now know: #HXhanke #turpo=#säkpol
#Eurofighter (still prefer #Typhoon) is strongly pushing the European angle with most major European powers having a stake in the program. Total sovereignty over mission data was also a big deal, and the (re)newed focus on EW-capabilities was also promoted
The Eurofighter has a bunch of strong cards: the independence angle is a big deal for Finland, as is the large number of major operators (second only to F-35) and the fact that it is likely the premier #QRA platform of the lot.

Trump’s sanctions against #Turkey result largely from Erdogan’s purchase of #S400 from #Russia. Interestingly #India too signed a deal worth $5.4 billion with Russia for S-400 in 2015. If US decide to sanction India, Reliance Defense may be destroyed.…
Purchases from #Russia attract US #sanctions under the #CAATSA Act.

The US can issue waivers but only on a transaction-to-transaction basis.

The US still has NOT given #India a waiver on this #S400 deal despite requests.…
Guess who is the main offset partner for the #S400 deal between #India & #Russia?

Yup - it’s Anil Ambani’s Reliance Defense.

Ambani signed a contract with Russia’s Almaz-Antey which makes S-400 potentially worth $6bn.…

#370BaitersExposed What were the gains which benefited the subjects of J&K State in last 72 years on account of promulgation of #Art370 and #35A, can political analysts and proxies of #PakPremiGang enunciate ? Was J&K State not instead kept a hostage to #Art370 and quarantined ?
#370BaitersExposed By keeping d whole State of J&K hostage to #Art370, instead of empowering d men and women alike, it was used as a tool discriminatory to disempower women from basic rights as they married outside d State making them lose right to buy, sell or inherit property.
#370BaitersExposed While d women marrying outside state subjects were disenfranchised, a blatant violation of fundamental rights, d regressive law was on d contrary used to encourage men marrying girls from outside d State by empowering them with rights to vote, land & property.

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

Contempt petition against #RahulGandhi in #Rafale case: #BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi seeks time to file a reply to Rahul's affidavit. Mukul Rohatgi, for Lekhi, says Rahul's affidavit is just a lip-service & that he has expressed no apology.
#CJI: "Will we use the word 'Chowkidar' in our order? How can that be a submission".

Rohatgi: "Ask him. He used it".
#CJI: Why don't you put everything in an affidavit?

Rohatgi: Give me 10 day.

#CJI: We will give you more time. We think this matter should be heard with the main review petitions in #Rafale

#Rafale: Most important aspect of explanation by @RahulGandhi to SC is his counter salvo at @BJP4India

He has extensively cited statements by BJP leaders that SC gave clean chit to Modi in its Dec verdict when SC had clearly said it has only refrained from interfering under A.32
And he has a point there. The Supreme Court never went into the aspect of clean chit in its Dec 2018 judgment. It only addressed a limited aspect of whether there was enough material warranting its interference under A 32. And it answered that in the negative.
#Rafale: Gandhi says that his statement was also made in the context, purely politically to counter the misinformation campaign of senior BJP leaders about the Dece 14, 2018 judgment of SC which BJP leaders said is a clean chit to govt.

Govt quickly got it to action & started process. RFP was floated by NDA Government in 2004.
➡ Requirement of 126 Jets was took over by Congress after 2004 elections. Revised RFP was out in 2007 but bids were open in 2011. Even after 4 years of delay, deal was never finalised by Congress.

1/ 'Modi took ₹30,000 crore & gave to Ambani' repeats @RahulGandhi like a broken record,whose dynasty starting from Nehru's Jeep Scam,to Bofors & HDW scams of Rajeev to Agosta scam of Sonia took Billion's kickbacks in defence procurements. #RahulsLiesExposed #ChaukidarNekHai
2/ Below schematic shows that biggest offset partner in #Rafale deal is #DRDO with ₹9,000 crore.Not #Ambani! Rest ₹21,000 is split in three main manufacturers Thales ₹6,300 crore, Dassault ₹8,400 crore & Safran ₹6,300 crore. #RahulLiesExposed #ChaukidarNekHai @Hiranyareta
3/ Offset for Thales is given to 12 Indian companies.Offset for Dassault to 55 Indian companies.And offset for Safran to 22 Indian companies.Ambani's #Reliance is one of these 89 companies,with only about 3% of the total i.e. around ₹900 crore. #RahulLiesExposed #ChaukidarNekHai

@YashwantSinha, A Shourie & @pbhushan1 are seeking a review of the #SupremeCourt's #Rafale judgment on 4 main grounds:

1) Judgment did not deal with the main prayer of one of the petitioners (P Bhushan): filing of an #FIR & a #CBI led investigation
2) Judgment relied on a large number of major factual errors
3) Critical material evidence was suppressed from the Court
4) Judgment did not consider critical facts submitted by the petitioners

Centre files affidavit in Supreme Court in connection with the #Rafale fighter jet case.
The petitioners are using unauthorisedly accessed documents with the intention to present a selective and incomplete picture of internal secret deliberations on a matter relating to National Security and Defence. #RafaleDeal
The documents presented by the petitioners are failing to bring out how the issues were addressed and resolved and necessary approvals of the competent authorities taken #Rafalereview #Rafale

Ok, since there is an attemt to repeat lies over and over, putting out a #Thread on Attorney General KK Venugopal's submissions in #Rafale case before Supreme Court on March 6.
When Prashant Bhushan sought to rely upon the documents (stolen?) in question, Attorney General KK Venugopal objected saying those note files were stolen from Defence Ministry and probe into that is underway.
This would be an offence under the Official Secrets Act. Action might be taken against two newspapers which published. Action is also warranted against counsel. These are matters which involve the very security of the State, AG KK Venugopal. #Rafale

#Rafale case hearing begins in the #SupremeCourt. Bunch of review petitions and application by the Govt to correct the December judgment to be taken up by the court today.
#Rafale: Petitioner-advocate ML Sharma says all review petitions should be junked since nobody has brought on record the #CAG report on #RafaleDeal, saying the acquisition is economical and proved to be less costly.
#SupremeCourt declines to accept on record a letter given by the Hindu Editor N Ram to Prashant Bhushan regarding #Rafale.
"Please confine your case to the documents already submitted. We are not going to look into any new document at this stage," #CJI tells Bhushan.
