JK calls for PM’s attention
By B L Saraf Narendra Modi’s phenomenal rise from a small time party worker to the highest executive post in India is, largely, attributed to his “disruptive innovations which he has mastered as political tools to capture the imagination of rapidly changing polity.” That is why he has been delivering almost every election victory to the BJP, ever since he assumed power in Gujarat, in 2000. That Modi is a decisive leader was never in doubt. His recent decision of unusual character which caused a disruption in the economic activity, having stood the test at the bar of people has reaffirmed such a belief. People, in general, admire a decisive leader, even if his decision loo...

Geelani’s kin gets Govt job, other youth bullets!
Straight Talk
By K B Jandial While the BJP is upbeat over “congress mukt” results in four of the five states that went to the poll, Kashmir, unmindful of these political upheavals, is having a counter narrative even though major political parties (& also the separatists) are preparing for electoral battle in Srinagar and Anantnag Lok Sabha by-poll. The dangerous narrative in Kashmir has nothing to do with the just concluded electoral semi-final or the current by-poll.

By K B Jandial You may love Modi, you may hate Modi but you can’t ignore Modi. This is the present national political discourse.

Scripting new chapter of democracy
By K.N. Pandita A period of seven decades is small as well as big for Indian democracy; small because training a populace, one-half of which at least, is illiterate, ignorant and tradition ridden, in democratic politics is peanuts.

The first palpable change in the history of Indian democracy shaped with the result of parliamentary elections of 2014. Bharatiya Janata Party, projected by Congress as the right wing party (in negative sense) oppos...

Moment of introspection for Hurriyat
By K.N. Pandita Some out of power politicians and sections of print media are in the habit of intentionally issuing statements that create uproar in civil society. One such occasion they recently chose was the statement issued by Army Chief General Bipin Rawat. Amusing and childlike stories were fabricated. It speaks of their churlish nature. A statement about a very sensitive issue by a very important person like the Army chief should invoke probe into in what background the statement is given and not what is said. Unfortunately, critics lost sight of that important aspect. Dispassionate analysis of the background of the statement acquires more importance after the Def...
