It's a Congress-Yukt Bharat as PM Modi borrows Indira Gandhi's working style

And Modi is not the only one who has fashioned himself precisely on the lines of the 'Iron Lady'.

AAP and media: How BJP is adding to the cult of Arvind Kejriwal

Kejriwal's targeting of Modi isn't new. The strategy of trying to forcefully make himself into Modi's rival and therefore gain legitimacy as a contender for the Prime Minister's post, is also in danger of being overused. But with each such incident, the cult of Kejriwal gets a little more oxygen. #Mamata Banerjee #BJP #Narendra Modi #Delhi #Trinamool Congress #Indira Gandhi #Arvind Kejriwal #Emergency #Nirbhaya #AAP #Dinesh Mohaniya #Bihar's Nirbhaya

Dear Subramanian Swamy, this isn't 1999 and Narendra Modi isn't Vajpayee

At the peak of Indira Gandhi's haydays in early 1970s, Swamy had suggested to ‘the iron-lady’ that India’s Five Year Plans be scrapped. Indira not only dismissed the suggestion summarily but also described him as a 'Santa Claus with unrealistic ideas'. #India #BJP #Narendra Modi #Subramanian Swamy #ConnectTheDots #Indira Gandhi #IIT #Atal Bihari Vajpayee #RSS

Mentally not fully Indian: Rajan, Subramanian; is anyone safe from Swamy's hypocrisy?

It is ironical that Swamy has taken to doubting the integrity of brilliant NRI minds, as a similar case can be made against him, for a variety of reasons. #Wikileaks #Subramanian Swamy #ConnectTheDots #Indira Gandhi #Raghuram Rajan #Arvind Subramanian #CIA agent #Prime Minister Narendra Modi
