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

Kejriwal's targeting of Modi isn't new.

Aveek Sarkar's rule over Bengal's mindscape lasted nearly as long as Left Front's

There was friction also over modification of the Land Ceiling Act in Bengal which Aveek Sarkar apparently demanded but was met with only a cold response from the Chief Minister.

The sorry saga of a factionalised CPM and an insecure Congress

The chaotic scenes that dominated the CPM's three-day Central Committee meeting in New Delhi, however, saw neither democracy nor centralism, rather a Bollywood style fight sequence between the Sitaram Yechury and Prakash Karat camps #Mamata Banerjee #Sitaram Yechury #ConnectTheDots #Left Front #Prakash Karat #Biman Bose #Communism #CPM #Pradip Bhattacharya #Surjya Kanta Mishra #All India Democratic Women's Association #Jagmati Sangwan

Narada sting: Mamata Banerjee, Rajeev Kumar and a Salvador Dali-esque probe order

Consider the paradox. Mamata Banerjee, who as home minister is also in charge of the police, already believes that a conspiracy via a so-called sting was hatched to malign her party's image just before the polls and create suspicion among the voters. #Mamata Banerjee #Congress #BJP #Rajeev Kumar #TMC #CPM #Saradha Chit fund scam #sarada scam #Narada Scam #Narada sting operation #Soumen Mitra #Kolkata police commissioner #Mathew Samuel

How Arun Jaitley used 'cooperative federalism' to checkmate Cong on GST
