This is the marks card of Anitha, a Dalit girl from Tamil Nadu's Ariyalur district who got 1176/1200 (98%) in her 12th standard but committed suicide after her fight against NEET failed after the Supreme Court dismissed her pleas.

Today, when you see candidates who failed in Physics and Chemistry score 705/720 in NEET, you realise how unfair and one-sided the system is. Anitha is a martyr in this fight. Read her story below (1/4)Image Anitha was a brilliant girl from a very poor family. She was the little sister of four elder brothers and her father was a daily wage earner. Her mother died when Anitha was studying in 2nd standard as she didn't get timely medical help.

Anitha was determined to become a doctor from childhood and always stood first in her school till 12th. Before the introduction of NEET in 2017, medical admissions in Tamil Nadu were determined based on 12th Standard marks, and she scored very high marks of 1176/1200!

When the results came out, she didn't clear it. She was at the forefront of the fight against NEET by students from Tamil Nadu with activists like Prince Gajendra Babu leading the agitation. (2/4)

MOTHER OF ALL THREADS | How Modi Created a Bogus 'Black Money Narrative' and Exploited It

During the 2014 General Elections campaign, Modi claimed that there would be ₹15-20 lakhs worth of black money for every Indian stashed abroad. He also promised to bring back every penny if he is given power.

If you apply this ₹15 lakh figure to a population of 120 crore, it amounts to around $30 trillion. India's GDP back then was $2.04 trillion, and the world GDP was $79 trillion.

Let's analyze how they arrived at this astronomical figure, what was wrong with it, and how they fooled all of us, including his Khattar Bhakts (1/n) Let's examine the origins of these kinds of figures. When the alleged 2G scandal broke out, the then-CAG Vinod Rai estimated that 2G spectrum allocations resulted in a loss of ₹1.76 lakh crore for the nation. He arrived at this figure by multiplying the 3G spectrum price for Delhi and Mumbai circles and then applying it to the 2G spectrum for all 22 telecom circles across the country.

Dr. Manmohan Singh had the vision to provide 2G spectrum at a cheaper price to increase mobile telephony penetration across the country. The result of which was that there 21 telecom companies giving mobile services across the country. This led to an era of one-paisa calling, and the era of expensive STD calls disappeared.

CAG Rai's logic was like taking today's gold price (3G) and applying it to silver (2G). Hell broke loose and everyone alleged that there was a huge scandal and Congress and DMK leaders made a lot of money out of this. Everyone pitched in, including today's Godi journalists like Arnab Goswami and others. Dr. Manmohan Singh ordered investigations, and the case went to the Supreme Court, which cancelled the 2G licenses granted to companies. (2/n)Image

Why is Papa hurriedly selling govt land for a pittance just before retiring?🧵Read on!

Last week, the Telecom Secretary issued a notification that 600 land parcels and buildings of BSNL and MTNL are being put up for outright sale as part of asset monetization.

While these properties are initially offered for sale to government departments and other PSUs, they will eventually be auctioned to private entities. Most of these are prime properties, particularly those held by MTNL, which only owns properties in Mumbai and Delhi. (1/n)Image BSNL owns 10,568 acres, and MTNL owns 334.36 acres of land, all in prime locations in Mumbai and Delhi. The government's estimated value for BSNL's land is ₹1.26 lakh crore, while MTNL's land is valued at ₹12,000 crore.

It's challenging to assess these numbers at a glance, so let's convert them to average per square foot values for better relatability. (2/n)Image

EXPOSED | Did Modi Govt Import Cheaper Oil from Russia for Reducing Fuel Prices? 🧵

A few weeks ago, @saurabhtop of Lallantop asked @DrSJaishankar about the brief given to him by Modi regarding the decision to import crude oil from Russia during the Russia-Ukraine war, which began in February 2022.

Mr. Jaishankar said, "We've to keep the petrol price as low as possible. Petrol is the most inflationary. If it goes up, everything else becomes expensive. The objective was that India's consumers should pay less."

Listen to him fully before reading the rest of the thread. It gives the impression that Modi's single-point focus was to provide the benefit of cheaper Russian crude to Indian consumers. (1/n) The price of petrol and diesel before the war began in January 2022 was ₹95.41 and ₹86.67 respectively. It went up to ₹105.41 and ₹96.67 in April after the war started. It came back to ₹96.72 and ₹89.62 in May. It remained the same just before the elections were announced, with a two-rupee cut in March. We deserve such little mercies, isn't it?

Does this mean that India didn't get any benefit from cheaper crude imports from Russia? No. (2/n)Image

Mumbai - Ahmedabad Bullet Train: A disaster in the making 🧵

Ten years ago, Modi announced a Bullet Train project connecting Mumbai and Ahmedabad by 2022. This was hailed as Modi's ultimate vision, and everyone blamed Congress for not bringing Bullet Trains to India.

Ten years later, it is only 30% complete, and the revised deadline is now 2028. Let's not debate whether we need a bullet train or not. Instead, let's analyze the financials of the project and see how it is going to be the biggest liability for the country once launched, if and when that happens. (1/n)Image The initial cost estimation for the project was ₹1.08 Lakh Crore for constructing 508 KM with 12 stops.

The cost was later revised to ₹1.65 Lakh Crore, but it is expected to cost ₹2 Lakh Crore when completed, as reported by RSS mouthpiece @SwarajyaMag. That's a whopping ₹398 Crore per km!

The project was supposed to be 80:20 funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), which is a loan with a tenure of 50 years and an interest of 0.1%.

So, ₹1,60,000 Crore will come from Japan, and NSHRCL has to raise ₹40,000 Crore if the cost stays at ₹2 Lakh Crore. It can go beyond that. (2/n)…

Dear Modi Fans,

Can you imagine an Indian paying Pakistani extremists to abuse India on Television? What will you call such a person? We will call him Desh Drohi or Gaddar!

Watch this video and tell me how much contempt they have for you and your intellect. While you were glued to Arnab's WWE-like drama, feeling all patriotic, Tariq Pirzada, a defense analyst and media panelist from Pakistan, was busy abusing India left-right-centre. (1/4) Why were they doing this? It all boils down to money. Arnab was paying Pirzada in American dollars, sent to his Dubai account. This info came out in a blog post by none other than @sardesairajdeep.

And what did Arnab gain from this? Your viewership, your enthusiasm, your likes and shares—all of which add up to BARC ratings, YouTube views, and ultimately, tons of money.

What a huge profit, all at your expense! You were investing your precious time only to be taken for a ride by people you once considered trustworthy.

On screen, they looked like enemies, but behind the scenes, they were buddies, laughing all the way to the bank! (2/4)Image

Have you heard about 374 people missing their flight on a single day in Bengaluru and many had to walk to the airport?

A 7 KM drive on Airport Road from Hebbal to MG Road takes between 45 mins to 1 hr. Many have missed their flights stuck in mad traffic and many would have died in ambulances.

Who is responsible for this? Let's find out (1/n)Image When Bengaluru's new airport construction was about to be completed in 2008, Yeddyurappa Govt took over.

To create a signal-free corridor from MG Road to Hebbal, BJP govt came up with stupid solutions like narrow precast underpasses, which created the whole problem. (2/n) Image

URGENT ATTN | We've accessed the petition regarding the False Affidavit filed by Rajeev Chandrasekhar.

The complaint was filed to @ECISVEEP @collectortvpm and EC Observer. Rajeev has declared assets of only 36 Cr. The whole world knows that he is a billionaire (8000 Cr) (1/n)

There are glaring mistakes in his affidavit itself, where he has shown his shares/bonds/debentures holding as a liability (negative) and manipulated the data to show a low figure of 36 Cr.

He has written two different figures of 9 Cr and 13 Cr for in two different places. (2/n) Image

Now let's look at the contributions of various Prime Ministers to our land area (1/n) Image It was Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru who added the maximum land area to India. During his tenure, India's land area increased by 3.47 lakh sq. km, which is roughly the area of Germany today.

Indira Gandhi also added territory to India, whereas Vajpayee and Modi lost territory. (2/n) Image
