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

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.

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

Everything's Right in Goa Hardline Hindutva on rise in India's party capital

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!

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
