A call to arms Modi offers window to push liberal agenda

What does the stupendous victory of the Narendra Modi-led BJP in the recent elections mean for Indias liberals - the genuine liberals, not the left-of-centre variety? #Narendra Modi #InMyOpinion #Sangh Parivar #Modi #liberals #Bhartiya Janata Party #Elections 2014 #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Election results 2014
Why no opposition will be strong enough for Modi in Lok Sabha

Why no opposition will be strong enough for Modi in Lok Sabha

More interestingly, the 55 or so seats that the allies bring to the National Democratic Alliance give Modi leverage inside the BJP. He can afford to alienate or push away those elements inimical to him or his policies. #HowThisWorks #Sonia Gandhi #Manmohan Singh #BJP #Narendra Modi #Rahul Gandhi #Lok Sabha #parliament #policies #Lok Sabha Election Results 2014
Tradition be damned President Pranab should vote this election

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

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

Better a voter selfie than an IPL update At least it's inclusive

In that sense, a selfie of the inked finger is a mark of pride of having discharged a duty well. #Politics #Bollywood #IPL #India #ToTheContrary #football #Voters #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Voter Selfie

The curious case of the voter ID card Good for everything but voting

It is ironic that the Voters ID as we know it, is actually an Elector Photo Identity Card, which has been abbreviated by the Central Election Commission itself as EPIC. #Politics #ThatsJustWrong #India #Election Commission #Voter ID #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Voter ID card #Mumbai Election
In defence of Shazia Ilmi She was not being communal

In defence of Shazia Ilmi She was not being communal

She should not have used that expression ' you have to be communal' - even if she used it ironically, in jest or to convey a paradox. #ToTheContrary #communalism #Muslims #Azam Khan #AAP #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Shazia Ilmi #Communal #secular #Togadia
Both BJP and Cong are only interested in personal gains

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
Why AAP is the only viable alternative for India

Why AAP is the only viable alternative for India

When you say viable alternative, I don't see any alternative other than AAP. The alternatives we have the BJP and the Congress are proven incompetent and/or thieves. When the existing alternatives are sinking the ship, even a small boat is a life boat. #Congress #BJP #LetterstoFP #AAP #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #viable alternative in India
