Maharashtra elections: Don’t count Raj Thackeray out yet, he may still get his fair share of votes

Raj Thackeray has a blueprint and not promises. He tells voters what is, what can be, and what could be done to make life better by pumping up the economy. #BJP #Congress #HowThisWorks #India #Maharashtra #Maharashtra Assembly polls #Maharashtra Navnirman Sena #NCP #Raj Thackeray #Shiv Sena #Uddhav Thackeray

‘Tribute’ to Thackeray: Modi buys post poll insurance as others slug it out

When Modi, speaking in Tasgaon on Sunday, said he would not utter a word to criticise the Sena because of the respect he had for the late Bal Thackeray, he actually said a lot. #BJP #Congress #India #Maharashtra #Maharashtra Assembly Election 2014 #MNS #Narendra Modi #NCP #Politics #Sharad Pawar #Shiv Sena

Maharashtra polls: Dynasts play key roles in their political backyard

Maharashtra has had its several lineages, and when Marathas dominate politics, the tendencies to promote the kith and kin are not unnatural. #Ajit Pawar #BJP #Dynastic politics #Gopinath Mumde #Maharashtra Assembly Election 2014 #NCP #Politics #PoliticsDecoder #Raj Thackeray #Sharad Pawar #Shiv Sena #States #Uddhav Thackeray

Former ally NCP turns Congress’ bete noire, surpasses BJP, Sena

There is a striking difference in the manner in which the two fragments of an alliance, Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party, are seen by voters than the other pair, Shiv Sena and the Bharatiya Janata Party. #Ajit Pawar #BJP #Congress #Maharashtra Assembly Election 2014 #NCP #Politics #PoliticsDecoder #Prithviraj Chavan #Shiv Sena #States

Maharashtra: Forget campaigns, all parties are still explaining their break-ups

The Assembly elections in Maharashtra will not be the same this time, as all four parties are busy explaining their break-ups, instead of talking election talk. #Assembly Elections #Assembly Elections 2014 #BJP #Congress #Elections #Maharashtra Assembly polls #Maharashtra polls #NCP #PoliticsDecoder #Shiv Sena #State Assembly Elections

Maharashtra polls: BJP’s imported candidates will be a pain for the loyals

Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray may have a point when he asks why, if there is indeed a Narendra Modi wave persisting after the tide of favour the party had secured in the Lok Sabha elections, was he going to go on the stump in as many as 25 locations on a blistering pace, all in about nine days from 4 October? #BJP #Gopinath Munde #Maharashtra #Maharashtra Assembly Election 2014 #Narendra Modi #NCP #PoliticsDecoder #Pramod Mahajan #Shiv Sena #Uddhav Thackeray

Shiv Sena vs BJP vs Cong vs NCP: Here’s why political break ups are not forever

Too many seats not enough candidates? BJP resorts to poaching in Maharashtra

The entire incident bears a striking resemblance to the way the BJP secured candidates from other parties which made the massive win possible because then, people voted for the promised development agenda #BJP #Congress #defections #Maharashtra #Maharashtra Assembly Election 2014 #Narendra Modi #NCP #PoliticalPlay #Shiv Sena

Maharashtra: Congress, NCP, BJP, Shiv Sena shred faith in coalition politics

Sena and BJP, Congress and NCP are making for what can be described an unseemly spectacle.

What Rohit Shetty doesn’t get: We need to have domestic slum tours

A walk through a slum would be quite educative to the non-slum residents. The enormity of a struggle of a life in hovels comes alive. #CriticalPoint #Economic stratum #Housing #Maharashtra #Mumbai #Real estate #Rohit Shetty #slum dwellers #slum rehabilitation #Slums #urban poor
