Why both Modi and Kejriwal are misinterpreting their massive mandates

The Indian public is slowly again losing faith in politicians, a faith that was temporarily restored when Modi and Kejriwal were given massive mandates. The mandate was for more honest politics, not more unbelievable promises and freebies #AAP #Arvind Kejriwal #BJP #Delhi #Delhi govt #InMyOpnion #Kejriwal #Land Bill #mandates #Modi #Narendra Modi #OROP #Patidar Agitation #Rahul Gandhi

Sheena Bora murder case: Why Alpha men are putty in the hands of Alpha women

It is intriguing that Indrani allegedly chose to murder her daughter using male accomplices though it is as likely that her son Mikhail would also have been a threat to her #daughter #Indrani Mukerjea #Mother #Murder #NewsTracker #Peter Mukerjea #Sanjeev Khanna #Sheena Bora #sister

A great leap backwards: Patel agitation is making reservations a zero-sum game

There is a need to now make a larger point about extending mindless reservations. It should be obvious to any politician with some good sense that what is unarticulated may actually represent a majority opinion in society rather than the vocal demands of a powerful section. #BJP #Gandhi #Gujarat #Hardik Patel #InMyOpinion #OBC #Patels #Patidar Patels

PM Modi should ignore the naysayers on OROP – including the FinMin

Morally, politically and economically, Narendra Modi is making a serious mistake by unconscionably delaying OROP. Most arguments used against OROP are misleading, if not plain wrong. #Defence forces #Economy #finance ministry #India #Indian Army #InMyOpinion #Narendra Modi #One Rank One Pension #OROP #Tax

Some PSU banks are dead ducks: Modi has to rethink his aversion to the P-word

Competition is set to intensify for public sector banks, and some of them will be dead ducks unless the Modi government either privatises or downsizes them to become narrow banks #bad loans #Narendra Modi #NPAs #Payment Banks #Privitisation #PSU banks #SBI

Why Pakistan always gets our goat: We are confusing public machismo with strategy

Pakistan's strategy may look irrational, but it is entirely rational from its army's own narrow point of view to retain power. This is why despite efforts to revive political dialogue, it finds ways to get under our skin #ConnectTheDots #counter terrorism #diplomacy #India-Pak Talks #Narendra Modi #NSA Ajit Doval #terrorist #The Neighbourhood
