In highly polarised UP, Akhilesh and BJP both need Azam Khan

Azam Khan's relevance for the SP is that they have no choice but to hang on to their divisive agenda and Muslim votebank.

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

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

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.

We are family In UP, Mulayam picks his other Yadav heir

The Congress clean sweep of all three seats in Uttarakhand that went to bypolls should have worried the SP. But Mulayam is certainly not willing to try out a new brand of leaders. #Congress #BJP #PoliticsDecoder #Samajwadi Party #Mulayam Singh Yadav #Uttarakhand #Akhilesh Yadav #bypolls #Mainpuri #Tej Pratap Yadav #Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections 2014
