Advani, Omar, and the cynical politics over Article 370

Cynical politics over the decades has dragged Kashmir into a fine mess today; a war of words that doesn't consider the historical narrative on the subject of Article 370 doesn't help heal Kashmir's wounds. #PowerGames #Jammu and Kashmir #Omar Abdullah #LK Advani #Jawaharlal Nehru #Article 370

With JD(U) exit, BJP is past the point of no return

Any further dithering in naming Narendra Modi as the BJP's candidate will only mean that its loss of JD(U) as an alliance partner - and the likely loss of its foothold in Bihar - will have been in vain. #BJP #PowerGames #Narendra Modi #Nitish Kumar #JD(U)

How Nitish Kumar's principled position could turn out

Politics is a numbers game. And if the BJP manages to get within striking distance of forming a government, the JD(U) could once again be back in the NDA fold. #BJP #PowerGames #Narendra Modi #Nitish Kumar #JD(U)
Pointless political posturing behind BJP-JD(U) rift

Pointless political posturing behind BJP-JD(U) rift

That a politically astute politician like Nitish Kumar should risk near-certain political defeat in Bihar by walking out of an alliance with the BJP unless it rules out Modi as its candidate is astonishing. But posturing is a habit that's hard to break. #BJP #PowerGames #Narendra Modi #Nitish Kumar #Elections 2014

BJP must see Advani's dissent as a blessing in disguise

it's a good thing that Advani has revealed his now. If a showdown was inevitable within the party, it is better to get it over with, rather than have it drag on until the election season is near at hand. #BJP #PowerGames #Narendra Modi #Rajnath Singh #LK Advani #Bhartiya Janata Party #News Analysis

In Goa today, BJP faces a moment of reckoning

Given the heavy-duty build-up by the pr-Modi faction in the party, leaving Goa without clarity on his nomination would be an anti-climax, and could end up signalling that the party is hostage to its past #BJP #PowerGames #Narendra Modi #Goa #LK Advani #BJP National Executive

How far will Advani go to scuttle Modi's bid for the top job?

For the BJP, which is in the throes of a divisive leadership tussle, the next week could prove an eternity. #BJP #PowerGames #Narendra Modi #Arun Jaitley #Rajnath Singh #LK Advani

What Modi's 'guest appearance' in Karnataka says of him

In putting up a mere token appearance in Karnataka, Modi comes across as a play-safe politician who doesn't want to risk anything that might impede him in his 'Chalo Dilli' yatra. #PowerGames #Narendra Modi #Assembly Elections #Karnataka 2013
BRICS Bank is just a castle in the air

BRICS Bank is just a castle in the air

For all the catchiness of the BRICS acronym, there is little that truly binds the countries, either politically or economically. In such a context, the BRICS Development Bank, a poorly conceived proposition, won't accomplish much. #PowerGames #IMF #World Bank #BRICS Summit
