Why LK Advani must sometimes wish that he was a Nehru-Gandhi man

Advani has not been anywhere as lucky as Sonia. In fact, he has constantly been sidelined in the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) over the last five years. And unlike Sonia, who continues to enjoy the spoils of the hard-work of her husband's ancestors, Advani built the BJP right from scratch. #AB Vajpayee #Ayodhya #BJP #Hindutva #Janata Party #Narendra Modi #Rajiv Gandhi #Sonia Gandhi

Madhu Kishwar and Ajay Maken are wrong about Smriti Irani

The Congress party is in no position to criticise her. One of their foremost leaders Rajiv Gandhi, never completed any degree after leaving the Doon School. He was the prime minister of the country. His mother Indira, never completed her degree at Oxford. #Degrees #HRD Minister #InMyOpinion #Madhu Kishwar #Narendra Modi #Rajiv Gandhi #Smriti Irani #Sonia Gandhi

How UPA turned NDA’s economic growth into shambles

The NDA had left the economy in a reasonable good shape on which the UPA could build. The first few years of growth under the UPA came because of this. In simple English, growth under the UPA cannot be separated totally from the growth under the NDA. #ConnectTheDots #Development #Economy #GDP #Growth #India #Inflation #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #NDA #UPA
