Geelani mischief needs be nailed
By Yash Bhasin Until and unless he discloses the names and identity of the persons who he claims had called on him in Delhi on Mar. 22 as emissaries of BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narinder Modi, offering to take him on board in solving the Kashmir imbroglio, assuring him of Modi’s soft approach towards the same, the hard line separatist and Islamic fundamentalist Kashmiri leader, Sayed Ali Shah Geelani is in the dock.

‘Separatist group in league with BJP’
Dr. Syed Nazir Gilani What happens on May 16, the secret rests with the aggregate choice of the people of India and including of course a more or less expressed participation by the people of the State of Jammu and Kashmir. It is intriguingly strange to see that some political parties in the election fray see profit in a poll boycott and some sense a loss. Election seems to divide the politics and common person in the Valley in particular. May 16 would give the Republic of India a new Government and be it BJP or Congress, would leave Valley opinion split from the middle. The separatist camp in particular would have hurt each other and as a consequence would have divided the common ...

Enmity and hatred everywhere
By Amit Kushari I think as a nation we are losing all sense of civility. Earlier also we had many general elections but never before did we witness such uncontrolled acrimony among different political parties. It appears that something very unusual is happening. Perhaps we are going to witness a tectonic shift in the political scene in India, perhaps we are going to witness considerable decimation of regional political parties in the Hindi heartland. Perhaps the stranglehold of the Gandhi family over Indian politics is going to disappear from the scene. Perhaps Modi’s vijay rath (the chariot of victory) has started knocking on the doors of even non Hindi bastions like Tami...

Struggle for UT Ladakh
Thupstan Chhewang My attention has been drawn to certain references made about me by Mr Nurboo Gialchan, Congress MLC, in the article “Divisional status for Ladakh-a rejoinder” on March 21. Mr Gialchan has grossly mispresented facts. I take this opportunity to put the record straight: (a) First of all he has quoted my party colleague, Mr Jamyang Tsering Namgyal’s reference to my speech at Leh’s Polo Ground, which is the most popular venue for political parties in Leh to unfold their agenda, and written “Sh. Thupstan Chhewang might have said such things at Polo Ground or anywhere else. But he keeps mum where his voice matters most.” It is not surprising that Mr Gi...

The tears of a denied mandate
A child crying is understandable, but Jaswant Singh is too grown up a man to cry in public
By Amit Kushari A kid can shed tears in public if his mummy doesn't give him a chocolate. But it is not expected that a senior politician with 50 years experience in public life will do so if his political party is unable to give him a ticket in the elections. Usually our politicians try to put up a brave 'dabang' image in public and would never reveal their weaknesses. Last week when we saw Shri Jaswant Singh shedding tears in public because BJP had denied him a ticket from Barmer, people were really shocked. Jaswant Singh had served in various senior positions in the party and in the government of India. BJP had made him external affairs minister of India and he had also se...

Now, as this political jugglery moves on, the e...

By B L Saraf Electioneering for the 15th Lok Sabha is slowly but surely on. Though the pitch is still not feverish , yet the power seekers and the power brokers, in Delhi and provincial capitals, see a job on their hands. Permutations and combinations are being worked out to out manoeuvre one another and hijack the mandate. As the polling date approaches most of the countrymen look forward to the results with a hope . They want present Government to go, after what they have gone through the last five years of the UPA-2 rule. Physical security concerns, particularly of the womenfolk, the national security scenario, c...
