Tradition be damned: President Pranab should vote this election

This idea of not voting to be neutral is a claim to false neutrality. If it were to ensure that he was not accused of taking sides in government formation when no party of no pre-poll alliance won a majority, it appear a logic stretched too far #India #ToTheContrary #Pranab Mukherjee #Congress #BJP #Democracy #President #Rashtrapati Bhavan #Lok Sabha elections 2014

Is the law an ass? Not just Modi, everyone flouts the code of conduct

Would it deem it possible to have the last day for nominations the same across the country and freeze all election related activity by the political parties and their candidates and their well-wishers the moment the polling starts in the first phase? #Politics #India #Congress #BJP #Narendra Modi #Election Commission #Amethi #Priyanka Gandhi #Model code of conduct #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Lotus Symbol

Why Mumbai's middle class just lost its right to criticise the govt

By and large, Mumbaikars, except those who live in the slums, have lost the right to express displeasure on TV shows, Facebook, Twitter or anywhere else, over issues of governance. #Congress #BJP #Mumbai #NCP #AAP #Mumbai Elections #Mumbai voter turn-out #Mumbai's middle class #Mumbai's slum vote

Both BJP and Cong are only interested in personal gains

But BJP is equally bad (or at best, only slightly better) as Congress. Even if we assume that Modi is honest, BJP as a party is not. #Congress #BJP #LetterstoFP #Aam Aadmi Party #AAP #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Lok Sabha polls 2014 #Firstpost Community #Elections 2104

How both Modi and Rahul are likely to lose their 2014 battles

RaGa may not stay relevant in politics or in his party to lead a comeback. NaMo may not get to become the super-PM he so promises to be. #Corruption #Gujarat #Congress #BJP #Narendra Modi #Rahul Gandhi #Voting #RSS #Centre #Polling #Allies #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Primaries #2014 battles

BJP needs to ramp up efforts to counter Cong's bag of dirty tricks

The BJP should ramp up their marketing efforts even more, given that elections are on instead of just being satisfied with the current efforts. #Congress #BJP #Narendra Modi #LetterstoFP #Modi
Cong can no longer deny it: It's drowning under the Modi wave

Cong can no longer deny it: It's drowning under the Modi wave

Is there a Modi wave and is this an election different from others? Or is the imminent thrashing of the ruling party the result of an anti-Congress vote? #Sonia Gandhi #Congress #BJP #Narendra Modi #PoliticsDecoder #Modi #Bhartiya Janata Party #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Lok Sabha 2014
Forget personalities, why aren't we debating party manifestos

Forget personalities, why aren't we debating party manifestos

Why don't we talk about NDA's manifesto vs UPA manifesto vs AAP manifesto (which by the way does not exist because their committees could not come up with any policies). #Congress #Narendra Modi #Rahul Gandhi #Arvind Kejriwal #LetterstoFP #AAP

Not just BJP, Sri Ram Sene: Medieval mindsets cut across parties

My point is that medieval mindsets cut across parties and if you're going to castigate politicians for it, reprimand them all. #Politics #India #Congress #BJP #Narendra Modi #Violence against women #Rape #Sri Ram Sene #Women's rights #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Pramod Muthalik
