Spread the love           Mayawati has refused to be part of the greater alliance (mahagathbandhan ) unless she is given a major chunk of seats to contest. She may be right in her assertion. But politically she is wrong. The main problem with Mayawati, however, is that she does not comprehend the new idiom of Dalit assertion. […]

Spread the love           Her reasons for not entering into an alliance in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh are rather flimsy. Significantly, she spared Congress President Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi from her tirade but she picked up senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh, whom she called a “BJP agent who is opposed” to any tie-up between the two […]

The 2014 general election was no different. […]

Spread the love           Believe it or not, Modi has not just changed the way Indian politics is done. He has also transformed the party structure from within – creating his own team of workers aka ministers to the extent of sidelining the bigwigs that stood out brandishing the Hindutva flag once upon a time.
