The dark side of Modi's election victory 29-05-19

Modi's message that he was the strong man of India, the only one who could keep the country safe from a threat that came not just from Pakistan but from Muslims generally, was doubly effective. asia.nikkei.com/Spotlight/Comm…
Dark Side To Narendra Modi
Dated 16-05-14

Modi's seeming religious intolerance,the implications of his rule on Indian press freedom (especially as Hindu nationalists take to the internet to intimidate Modi critics) are cause for concern.

Modi showed her copies of Barack Obama’s books. “He said, ‘Maithili, look at this. I want to be like him someday,’ ” she recalled. She was struck by his canniness. “I thought Modi was either going to be Prime Minister or he was going to jail.”

Entire generation will grow up with Sangh’s twisted notions of Indian history,culture and nationalism, unable to discern the truth from false
propaganda. Living with fear and hatred, instead of love and generosity–ignorant of what they have lost

The CBI coup must be seen in context of political appointments since 2014 caravanmagazine.in/politics/cbi-c… via @thecaravanindia
@thecaravanindia Modi constantly whispered ill into the ears of party leaders about Keshubhai, the same way he had whispered ill about Vaghela into Keshubhai’s ears

He knew the Gujarat BJP wouldn’t have elected him asthe CM,so it had to be an appointment from the centre

OPINION | Narendra Modi will one day no longer be prime minister, but god knows when — or if — India will ever recover from the damage the cult of Modi has done to its economy, its institutions, its social life and its moral fabric.

"Democracy is dying in India"
Article dated 22-03-20

We in India are still in the early phases of this terrifying regime, but if the world doesn't stand up and take notice soon, it will only get worse.

New Delhi’s crackdown on dissent is endangering free speech and the entire system of criminal justice.
The systematic abuse of police & judicial powers that is now underway amounts to a new and major challenge to India’s commitment to impartial justice.

how is 8 phase elections in WB biased towards BJP?

Some of the answers of this question in this thread
I just copied some of tweets
😂
1,Why two phases required for one district having 16 seats...coz you can mobilse the resources. Modi will campaign in one constituency while the neighboring constituency will go for vote on same day.
2. It would help them change strategies and slogans phase after phase if it not working....and if nothing will work riot's always helpful for them...

Bhagat Singh and Savarkar, Two Petitions that Tell Us the Difference Between Hind and Hindutva m.thewire.in/article/histor…
Bose ws no where near 2 communal forces , ideolised by Jan Sangh after it came in2 being in beginning of 50s. That apart, the fact that Bose's speeches were published by GOI in 62 bears ample proof that Pandit #Nehru hd no enmity towards Netaji which is @BJP4India favourite plank
Note that Bose says that those who worked towards the independence of India will have an honored place, whilst those who cooperated with the British will be non-entities in free India. So, what made Bose make such a scathing statement against Savarkar?

1,Motera Stadium, built in 1983, was named after Ironman Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel during Congress Govt and was called "Sardar Patel Stadium"

PM Modi has however renamed it to Narendra Modi Stadium — this narcissism is an insult of Sardar Patel and of people of Gujarat.
Both Prime Ministers from “The Family” were brutally assassinated.
Here, a stadium is named after someone who rose to power by assassinating anyone that came in his way.

Petrol prices have nothing to do with import dependence or previous govts, especially when crude prices have been benign. It has everything to do with the govt wanting to collect revenues when other forms of taxation are not accruing revenues
energy.economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/oil-and-g…
The share of petrol and diesel in total consumption is more than 50%. These are also products NOT included in the GST, which means both state and center collect taxes on consumption. For eg, for every litre of petrol at INR 100, taxes are ~60-67rs Image
This chart shows you the total taxes/duties for *all* petroleum products.But since petrol and diesel account for 50% of consumption, they are also the highest revenue generator for the govt. The center collects slightly more revenue from taxes than states
