Remembering lesser known Heroes of 26/11 -

1. Mukesh Jadhav : A 23 year old Home Guard earning mere ₹90 per day. He was posted at CST. When Kasab & gang came he guided many passengers to safety.

In saving one passenger he face to face with one terrorist & lost his life.
2. Jillu Yadav - He was a constable of RPF & he took Kasab & Ismail Khan head on. He was armed with outdated .303 rifle & terrorists had 3 AK47 & grenades. He fought bravely & even threw chairs when his rifle jammed to not allow terrorist to cross over to other platform.
3. Vishnu Zende - He is possibly known to some & unknown to others. He was announcer at CST when carnage started. He was fired upon but he kept announcing & informed passenger about terrorist presence. Due to his announcements many lives were saved.
4. Vijay Surve - He is a Shivsainik & when 26/11 started he along with few of his Shiv Sena workers shifted people around Nariman House to safer locations.

He letter received a letter from NSG also & they commended his for his work.
5. Captain Tamil Selvan - He was parcel contractor & suddenly when injured people came at his counter he realised that there was attack at CST.

He & his two staff members evacuated many & saved lives of 36 injured. He is sitting BJP MLA from Sion.
6. Vijay Khandekar - He was wireless operator & he was on leave when event occurred. He immediately proceeded to Cama Hospital & he was martyred when grenade was thrown at police party.
7. Inspector Sanjay Govilkar - He was part of the police team that captured Ajmal Kasab alive. When he realised on scene that Kasab has attacked Omble he used his lathi to disarm Kasab.

For his heroic act he received President’s Medal for gallantry.
8. Sub-Inspector Bhaskar Kadam - He was the one to intercept Skoda of terrorist & he neutralised Ismail Khan with six shots fired from his gun.

He received ₹75,000 prize & President’s Medal for Gallantry.
9. Inspector Deepak Dhole - He managed to keep the terrorists at Taj Hotel confined to top floor for four hours & he responded whenever they tried to flee to other location. He suffered burn injuries.

He never got any reward or promotion despite promise from then HM RR Patil.
10. Inspector Nagappa Mahale - He was the one who coordinated the operation at Chowpatty which led to arrest of Kasab yet he never received any commendation or reward.

His station was understaffed yet he managed this operation.
11. Inspector Kishor Shinde - When a bag full of RDX was found at Oberoi Trident he quickly took it & placed it at an isolated place. It exploded few minutes later. If not for him many lives would have been lost that day.
12. Captain Amitendra Singh - This 25 year old braveheart from NSG suffered serious injuries to his eyes during raid at Oberoi Hotel.

He lost his left eye permanently & returned to duty on a desk job. He was awarded with Shaurya Chakra.
13. Sub-Inspector Sudam Pandarkar - He was in ladies compartment for duty when he heard gunshots. He fired 3 shots from his .303 rifle & in return fire from terrorists he was wounded in the chest.

He luckily survived & urged Govt to give them better guns.
14. Commando Sunil Yadav - NSG brave-heart was trying to rescue people stuck at Taj Hotel when a bullet passed through his both legs. Somehow he got up & rescued guest who were stuck at 4th floor.
15. Dr Ashish Tiwari - He was physician at Bombay hospital. He drove to hospital as soon as he got report of attacks. He & his team set up various operation units at war footing. They saved many lives with their quick response. To get more idea watch Mumbai Diaries.
There are many more unsung commoners who helped people during this tragedy.

Homage to all bravehearts whether it was police personnel, hotel staff, nurses or common civilians like you & me who went out of their way to save people they never met in their life.

➡️You will think it will decimate BJP with this vote share. You are wrong. There will be rebels on more than 40 seats in MVA assuming they fight alone and they will eat each other’s vote share.

Plus BJP’s worst case scenario is near to Sena’s best case scenario in Mumbai.
➡️As Election progresses BJP will only move ahead.

➡️Devendra Fadnavis must be relieved of his responsibilities as Goa Election incharge as he is needed in Maharashtra as Chandrakant Patil is not that useful. If needed Vinod Tawde should be deputed to Goa.
➡️ Nitesh Rane’s Marathi Katta is receiving good response so far.

➡️ Most of you won’t agree but Narendra Modi is needed to bring out BJP’s middle class voters to polling station. Sena’s voters come mainly from slum areas & they will go to vote with enthusiasm.

Thread on BMC Elections

Currently BJP has an ambitious aim of defeating Shiv Sena in Mumbai.

If BJP wants to achieve this Herculean task it will have to implement a mix of its strategy in GHMC & Bodoland Territorial Council elections.
➡️ Like GHMC BJP will have to field all its top line leaders in Mumbai & if possible even PM @narendramodi.

➡️First of all it will increase pressure on opposition cadres. Moreover it will ensure good turnout in BJP bastions of Charkop, Borivali, Mulund, Kandivali and Colaba.
➡️ Personally speaking I don’t like usage of top brass for local elections but when I check turnout for 2019 Lok Sabha & 2019 Assembly I realise that NaMo is very much necessary to bring out lazy BJP voters across India.

Mid Term Opinion Poll for 10 Lok Sabha seats of Haryana

BJP+ : 7-9
INC : 1-3

Factors in favour of BJP in Haryana -

1. PM Narendra Modi is tallest leader for Haryanvis & they support BJP primarily due to him.

2. State Govt ended Parchi system (corruption) in Govt jobs.
3. 75% of reservation for locals in jobs will do wonders.

4. ML Khattar is tallest non-Jat leader in 55 years history of Haryana.

5. Jats V/S Non-Jats consolidation is at peak in Haryana & it will give rich political dividends to BJP
Factors Against BJP :

1. On couple of seats Jats are more than 35% which will cause big trouble for BJP.

2. Unemployment as per GoI figures is another big trouble but with Khattar’s efforts it is being dealt with.
