Antony is right: Why 'reservation secularism' is the definition of insanity

AK Antony has said Congress'style secularism is seen as minority appeasement, indicating that this causes a strengthening of the Hindu votebank. One wishes he had instead called for abolition of all votebank politics. #Congress #BJP #Islam #Narendra Modi #PoliticsDecoder #LK Advani #AK Antony #Muslims #Secularism #minority appeasement #Hindu votebank

Congress and the minorities: Why Antony gets the diagnosis wrong

Trust the Congress to misdiagnose its problems and settle for wrong remedies. The party has been in a state of intellectual confusion and the remark by AK Antony that its secular image has taken a beating as the party is perceived to be battling for minorities only is symptomatic of that. #Congress #PoliticsDecoder #AK Antony #Antony #minorities #Muslims #Secularism #secular

Karnataka elections: Narendra Modi is brave, Rahul, Sonia opportunists

Modi would surely have known that his speeches would not sway an election in South India, but he came and he attacked the Congress. It was a selfless act for his party and a statement on his unchanging beliefs. The same cannot be said of Rahul and Sonia. #Politics #Sonia Gandhi #Gujarat #Congress #Narendra Modi #InMyOpinion #Rahul Gandhi #Karnataka #Nehru #Secularism #Karnataka 2013 #Pluralism
