Bugging Gadkari's home Is political espionage an epidemic in India?

Despite all the talks on the RAMPART-A espionage programme of the US that the National Security Agency used to spy upon the BJP after being allegedly allowed by the previous UPA government, there are talks in the air that this might well turn out to be a case of internal political espionage. #Politics #Congress #BJP #Nitin Gadkari #PoliticsDecoder #Rajnath Singh #Intelligence Bureau #bugging #Political espionage

Machiavellian, capricious Natwar Singh on Sonia's destruction of Cong

Bihar Nitish, Lalu bank on caste arithmetic to tackle Modi's BJP

The very foundation of this JD(U), RJD and Congress alliance, as many in Bihar see it, is regressive and blatantly casteist. #Politics #Congress #BJP #Narendra Modi #PoliticsDecoder #bIhar #Nitish Kumar #States #RJD #Lalu Prasad

Will BJP rope in ex-separatist Sajad Gani Lone to win Jammu and Kashmir?

Sajjad Gani Lone's biggest work is a vision document on how India and Pakistan can jointly manage their respective portions of the Kashmir while keeping it a single economic entity. That he is now being wooed by the BJP and PDP is a sign of his growing stature. #BJP #Pakistan #PoliticsDecoder #National Conference #Hurriyat Conference #Jammu Kashmir #JP Nadda #PDP #Baramulla #Sajjad Ghani Lone #People's Conference

Bugging in Nitin Gadkari's home Here's why Modi govt must institute a probe

If there is indeed no tension between the party and government or among ministers, then the needle of suspicion rests on the NSA. And that cannot be good news for the Modi government seeking to rebuild ties with the US. #Manmohan Singh #UPA #Nitin Gadkari #PoliticsDecoder #Bharatiya Janata Party #USA #Indo-US relations #National Security Agency #Spying #Snowden

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

Achtung Baby: Thugs headed for Himachal Assembly!

In stark contrast to the cacophonous white-noise on meaningless lip-serviced stuff like good governance, cleaning up the polity and putting up cleaner candidates, almost ALL political parties have reflexively regressed to the tried and tested practice of putting some garbage into the electoral funnel once again. #Politics #India #Elections #SMS #Political Decoder
