BJP hopes to woo Dalits, but what about the party's integral Brahmin politics?

The party’s attempts to woo Dalits continue to sit uneasily with the upper-caste Brahmanical politics that is integral to it. #Politics #BJP #PoliticsDecoder #Dalits #RSS #Ideology #caste politics #Brahmins

#SeditionDebate: No minister, the students are not anti-nationals, they are just fools

Are the students of JNU who raised slogans in support of Afzal Guru, calling him a martyr and describing his hanging as a case of judicial killing, anti-nationals? Does the act of pasting posters inviting students to join a march against his hanging qualify as sedition? #JNU #Afzal Guru #Sedition #Intellectual #Ideology #Left wing #anti-national #SeditionDebate

Rightwing with a difference: The evolving outlook of the Modi government

There has been a marked Rightward shift in the political centre of gravity after the recent election. However, the rash use of terms such as ‘Thatcherite’ and ‘neo-liberal’ may not suffice to describe the new phenomenon in India. The ideological orientation of the Indian Right is forever a work in progress - as it is for the Right in any country. #World #BJP #Narendra Modi #Modi #Ideology #Right wing #Left #Right #FreeIndia #neo liberal #Thatcherism

Between the state and markets: AAP's inherent and tragic design flaw

Political space in Delhi or the national level is likely to be reclaimed by parties that gyrate to the modern day demands of political economy'; not the converse. The Aam Aadmyi party then is likely to be a flash in the pan phenomenon. This will be a pity. #Elections #Delhi #Arvind Kejriwal #Taxation #Ideology #Aam Aadmi Party
