Extremely hated by the hindu zealots and infamous as Mulla Mulayam during the Ayodhya movement of the nineties when he ordered firing on the Hindu Kar Sewaks marching in myriad numbers towards the Babri mosque killing 28 and injuring many Samajwadi Party supremo and former chief minister UP Mulayam Singh Yadav has no remorse for issuing firing directives but says that his governmeny was committed to protecting the 16th century Babri Mosque in order to preserve the nation’s unity and integrity.
He added: I had to protect the confidence of the minorities in the country’s constititon. But finally puts the blame on the paramilitary, the central reserve security force for losing their cool after the karsewaks burnt their tents in which a trooper died. It was only after this that the CRPF got immensely furious and went berserk killing total 28 Kar sewaks with sixteen dying on the spot. He said that he had direct arguments with the former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee who exaggerated the figure of dead kar sewaks to 56 instead of 28. On the 25th anniversary of Babri Masjid Mulayam Singh Yadav while speaking to media persons separately, pronounced prime minister Narendra Modi as an intelligent man and the one who can find the solution to this vexed issue if he really wishes to do so. Known for his over appeasement of minorities and tremendously revered by them, octogenerian Mulayam Singh Yadav whose samajwadi party lost to BJP in the state legislative elections just eight months ago said that he held several secretive meetings with VHP leaders and the Sunni Vaqf Board earlier and had placed a formula of construction of Ram Mandir adjacent to the disputed site pending the Apex court’s judgement thus not touching the disputed site and keeping the minorities happy as well.
He says: my suggestion was, the Hindus could built another temple later at the site if the court permits and mosque by the minorities. What’s wrong. This would satisfy all sections of the society. Though agreed by all, earlier, it could’nt finally materialise. Believing in the funal judgement of the supreme court in this context Mulayam Singh says that if an amicable out of court settlement arrives, he would welcome it. He says, he is today the most unacceptable person in the context of Babri masjid Ram temple imbroglio as neither side is prepared to listen to me. Had it been not the case I would have genuinely proceeded ahead to resolve this vexed imbroglio, adds Mulayam Singh Yadav.
It may be recalled that considered to be the most popular leader of minorities of the country Mulayam Singh Yadav came into heated controversy in the year nineteen ninety when he in his capacity of the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh ordered the firing on the myriad number of kar sewaks marching towards the Babri Masjid site killing 28 on the spot though the figure as per the VHP and BJP was 56, strongly refuted by Yadav. A CRPF jawan was also killed during this fiasco.
While he was strongly condemned by the majority community all over the globe Mulayam was hailed by the minorities in India as as well as the muslim world then for protecting the Babri Masjid at the cost of 28 killings. It was after two years when the BJP chief minister Kalyan Singh was on the power saddle in UP the Babri Masjid was demolished changing the course of history of Indian politics and converting the BJP from the strength of 2 MPs to a resounding success with AB Vajpayee becoming the prime minoster of the country with the support of the NDA partners and placing the Ram temple issue on the back burner. As the Congress party stands for secular values unstintedly so is Mulayam Singh serious about the minorities of the state and the country.
He had even once in his parliamentary speech has advocated for making of a federation of the muslim states involving Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and other muslim countries creating a furore in the parliament especially when the neighbouring country is sneaking hard core terrorists in J&K and other parts of India creating havoc by killing innocents in large numbers.The term Mulla Mulayam was allegedly given to him by his arch political detractors BJP and various hindu outfits like VHP and Bajrang Dal etc after he ordered firing on the Kar Sewaks in the nineties safeguarding the Babri Masjid and the interests of the minoritirs of the state, which Mr Singh termed as utmostly essential in view of protecting the communal fabric of the country.

The Gujarat election is becoming tumultuous and stormy day by day and despite prime minister Narendra Modi’s impressive public meetings enticing full assurance of support from majority of the electorates on Gujarat pride issue, political analysts say that the 24 year old leader Hardik Patel’s increasing anti BJP and pro Rahul and Congress campaign has to a great extent shaken and politically threatened the state’s BJP leadership.

Though there is not an inkling of doubt that various opinion polls have so far shown BJP winning the Gujarat polls, but as the election date is nearing while Nehru Gandhi scion and Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and Patidar leader carrying the majority support of over 12% votes of the influensive patidar community Hardik Patel, OBC leader Jignesh and Alpesh Thakor have accelerated their political campaigning and vociferous attacks on the ruling BJP including its top leadership, already facing an anti incumbency factor due to its being in power for the last 19 protracted years the enhanced tirade of the opposition seems to have visibly shaken the state ruling party leadership and it was on 12th November that an alleged morphed CD of Hardik Patel was made available to TV channels by unknown sources to defame his image.

This clearly shows how badly is the state BJP shaken and disturbed. However,  equally visibly upset was the Patidar leader then and  had to become offensive when he accused the state BJP leaders of allegedly planting a morphed sex CD showing somebody like him with a woman to pre strategically denigrate his image. Denying and outrightly rejecting the highly objectionable CD showing him with a woman in an uncompromising act Hardik had accused the BJP of intentionally doctoring it to defame his image, reputation and increasing popularity.

He added that it’s the old tactics and habit of BJP that when they become apprehensive of losing the polls they resort to such cheap and unethical practices to defame their political rivals.The BJP has however, outrightly denied. Similarly, the BJP was in a dock earliar, last month, when prior to this incident, one of Hardik’s associate Narendra Patel has presented a first instalment of wads of currency, Rs ten lakhs, in front of the media given to him by the Gujarat state BJP leaders as a bribe to join the BJP assuring 90 lakhs to be presented later on.

Patel’s exposure has really led to the defamation of the BJP when the state campainging for the election is in a full swing. As the dates of elections are nearing the poll of Gujarat has heated up to the maximum with Rahul Gandhi and his entire team holding good number of public meetings being further strengthened as well, by the anti BJP campaigning of Hardik Patel and OBC leaders’ like Jignesh.

However, the Gujarat election this time too seems to be going in favour of the BJP as political analysts say that come what may the Gujarat pride factor and the freebies delivered and assured by prime minister Narendra Modi and his government to the tune of several thousand crores pertaining to its development and jobs to the weaker sections will definitely bore fruits and help in BJP’s return for another term.

The spate of incessant development in Gujarat during and after Modi’s tenure and his every possible efforts to break into the Patidar vote bank by participating in the Narayanswamy Mutt event which comprises of maximum devotees of the patidar community compounded with giving the Gujaraties a direct flight from London to Ahmedabad and a hi speed bullet train project worth more than Rs.100 crores are some of the revolutionary developmental achievements that are bound to go in BJP’S FAVOUR.

Yes, but the Congress is bound to improve its tally this time due to Rahul’s increasing efforts and anti BJP stance of Hardik, Jignesh and Alpesh Thakur the leaders of Patidar, OBC and the dalit communities. However, whatever, may be the result of this election but one thing is definitely confirmed that despite the Congress facing defeats in several states in the recently held elections, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi has always kept his moral high as a strong and dashing leader of the oldest political party of the country.

His increasing mobilisation capacity and single handedly taking on the ruling party tirades in Gujarat and Himachal despite all odds has proved beyond doubt that the Gandhi family scion is a horse of long race who believes in strugglung relentlessly even if he loses every battle. This fighting spirit of Rahul Gandhi has atleast kept the spirit of the rank and file of the party renewed with enthusiasm and potent zeal that will definitely help the party come to power again at the centre, sooner or later.

While the visit and eloquent passionate address of prime minister Narendra Modi at Kedarnath dham, also simultaneously inaugurating four new schemes for the overall face lifting and upside down development of Kedarpuri at historic Kedarnath Dham, the BJP led NDA’s immediate rival, Congress Party couldn’t digest the increasing popularity of Narendra Modi and its leaders were quick enough to call a press conference and deplore the PM’s statements on various issues mentioned by Modi in his Kedarnath speech.

While, the former chief minister of Uttarakhand who himself lost from two legislative constituencies, deplored the prime minister for having relaunched his already inaugurated schemes in Kedarnath while he was the chief minister of the state, the former union minister of state and a close confidante of Rahul Gandhi, now Congress’s spokesman RPN Singh has also accused the present BJP led government and PM Modi for misguiding the people of Uttarakhand on the development plank and RENOVATION  and refurbishment of Kedarpuri as the union government has not released a single paisa in the context of reconstruction financial package during the last three years after the dreaded ecological catastrophe of Kedarnath, Uttarakhand.

The party also levelled charges on BJP leaders and PM for showing their backs to BABA Kedar while addressing the crowds thus breaching the spiritual sanctity and insulting Lord Shiva.

Terming the prime minister’s speech as the one not based on facts and reality, the Congress spokesperson Singh said that it was primarily the United Democratic Front government under Dr. Manmohan Singh’s tenure which had allocated a whopping financial package of Rs.8000 crores out of which rupess 2200 crores were expeditiously released and development works carried out at KEDARPURI but the current government has thereafter not released a single paisa out of the remaining sanctioned amount of rupees 5800 crores during its three and a half year rule despite repeated pursuances by the then Congress government of Uttarakhand.

RPN Singh also termed the prime minister Narendra Modi’s statement regarding the then Congress led government not allowing him to carry out the renovation and reconstruction work in Kedarnath absolutely wrong and baseless as no written request or communication was acknowledged by the then either the central or the state government.

Regarding PM Modi’s claim of rescuing and sending 5000 Gujaraties safely to Gujarat from the catastrphic Kedarnath in 2013, the Congress spokesman contradicted, saying that it was not the former but the then UK CM Vijay Bahuguna and his government who deserved the actual credit. The Bhartiya Janata Party leaders of the centre or state have so far not issued a single statement clarifying or deploring the statement of former Congress CM Harish Rawat or RPN Singh.

I am a human being too and I also feel like celebrating Deepawali festival with my family and this why I am here in your midst said the prime minister while addressing the Army Jawans at Gurez Sector of LOC in Kashmir today where he stayed with them for two hours, interacting, sharing experiences of life and knowng every detail of how the armymen safeguard our difficult borders under extremely challenging circumstances.

Dressed in am Army uniform and giving an impressive look as one of them prime minister Modi while boosting the morale of our patriotic soldiers said that when he shakes hand with them, it’s not that he is doing a mere formality but in fact a new sense and spirit of confidence and energy percolates in his veins and body.

This warm and hearty gesture of prime minister taking out time from his pivotal busy schedule and being in their midst literally feeding sweets in the mouth of each soldier and posing for individual and group photograph on every Deepawali is a gesture never ever witnessed earlier say the news analysts.

While the political rulers of the neighbouring country Pakistan encourage hardened extremists like Hafeez Sayeed demoralising their soldiers the heartiest warm gesture of Indian prime minister of hugging Indian Army soldiers, feeding them with sweets and lauding their dedicated efforts and actions to safeguard our tense borders by being in their midst on every Deepawali unabiguously speaks of the fact as to how much caring and genuinely concerned is the India head of the state is for our Armymen and para troopers who are 24×7 risking their lives and countering our enemies to ensure that 135 crore Indians live a comfortable and safe lives. This is not the first time that prime minister Modi had been in the midst of our brave soldiers diring the deepawali festival.

He celebrated Deepawali with Army Jawans a Siachin glacier, Himachal Pradesh and Punjab Indo Pak border earliar and stayed with them for a pretty long time exchanging plesentaries, sweets and thus boosting their morale.

After having been elected as the prime minister of the country Narendra Modi has declared that he will always celebrate this festival of lights and symbolic of victory of the good over the evil at the nation’ s borders with the Army Jawans and the para troopers who guard our borders under extremely challenging and extraneous circumstances without caring for their lives and being away from their families during popular festivals like holi and Deepawali and lateron kept his promises intact.

He also won their hearts by implemented the long awaited demands of Armymen pertaining to one pension, though in a phased manner. This warm, healthy and the ambivalent gesture of the prime minister has won him tons of accolades amongst the countrymen. In view of the incessant hostility from across the border and continuous ceasefire violations by unrelenting Pakistan and its terrorist outfits including expansionist China’s border interventions, clandestinely eyeing on Indian territories, prime minister Modi’s initiatives of keeping the Indian Army’s moral high holds tremendous national significance which has even kept his arch political rivals tight lipped.

Prime minister Narendra Modi as every year after becoming the prime minister of the country for the last three and a half years would be celebrating the famous Hindu festival Deepawali with the Jawans of India army stationed at our borders safeguarding us and the nation and this time that’s on 19th October Narendra Modi will celebrate this festival of lights with Indian Army and paramilitary Jawans at the last border with China at Garhwal Uttarakhand at Neeti village few kilometres away from the popular n historic 1200 year old spiritual place Badrinath Dham.

Right now (in the afternoon) the Prime minister is at Gurez Sector in J n K and exchanging pleasentaries with Army Jawans with Diwali wishes. The prime minister will stay with Army n ITBP Jawan manning the Indo China border and celebrate diwali for an hour or so. He is visiting Kedarnath on 20th October to seek Lord Shiva’s blessings, this being his second Kedar visit in a row since the last year.

It may be recalled that last year the media had announced about PM Modi celebrating Diwali at Mana Gaon but the scheduled got changed at the last minute, may be due to security reasons and the former landed at Indian side of the Army camp at the Himachal Pradesh Indo China border to celebrate Deepawali with the Jawans.

It’s really very nice of the prime minister to have started this precedent to be with our dedicated and duty bound soldiers and officers of Indian Army and paramilitary forces on Diwali festival to boost their morale and confidence who miss their families on this important festival.

Prior to this the prime minister celebrated Diwali at the Jn K border where Pakistan is constantly firing on our posts and army camps repeatedly violating ceasefire agreements between both the countries. The weather at the last village of India viz Mana in District Chamoli, Garhwal remains at 2 degree celcius or even minus degree during the night when its hot in Delhi.

You might be aware that its here at Barahauti in district Chamoli that Chinese soldiers have twice breached the Indo China agreement and entered our boundary several kilometres inside after being physically asked to vacate.

The Chinese PLA also breached our air space through helicopter rides. Mana village posseses a high security related significance as its the oldest border village, an important source of moral and other kinds of support to the ITBP n Army Jawan n officers stationed there in extreme challenging circumstances and climatic conditions.

Mobiles and social networking sites likes facebook, whatsapp, instagram and twitter have these days become the most priorty choice and liking of the people and is considered as one of the best options to suffice and fulfill the lust for mental and psychological satisfaction.

This IT revolution has undoubtedly brought people nearer and knowledge to one’s doorstep provided this medium is used logically for developing knowledge based inputs and IQ but contrarily it has also proved to be a greatest disaster as users with manipulative tactics, criminal bent of minds having sexual lust and intent to use it for exploiting people for narrow monetory or material ends and what not, unfortunately, use this easily available via media for immoral and illegal motives.

The young, old, even children and the women use social media extensively and have rather become its addict nationally not leaving even the lowest strata of the society uninfluenced by its massive impression. While social networking sites are the boon for the budding talents and experienced people with immense knowledge to share their experiences, talents, achievements and know-how, there had also been hundreds of thousands of instances of posting nude or semi nude highly objectionable pics on several sites to entice people, especially innocent young boys and girls to fall in their ugly traps, unknowingly.  In several cases the fake FB users in particular misuse the sites to entice girls and married women into their traps on false pretexts and promises, ultimately confronting legal hassles and breaking of families.

There have been several instances of blackmails as well in the social networking sites when the users copy the chats by taking the pictures of undesirable chats n objectionable postures and thereafter exploit the situation to their advantage. The teen aged boys and girls are the worst affected lot in this chatting exercise who get swayed away by the imposters and unintentionally fall into their trap unluckily thus spoiling their carrers and reputation.

There had been several incidents of suicides as well due to the social taboos and stigma. Social media sites lke FB and twitters are the paradise and God sent devise for politicians, political parties and the governments in power including the media who exploit it to the maximum to derive maximum socio political and professional advantage by posting their accomplishments, achievements and programmes and influencing their huge fan following. The sites are also used for the free promotion of various products by small, marginal and medium businessmen free of costs.

The prime minister of India Narendra Modi and the AAP supremo Arvind Krjrival followed by Congress supremo Rahul Gandhi etc have taken and derived maximum political advantage by rightfully using the facebook and twitter and have encouraged other political parties too to derive maximum advantage and benefit out of this God send devise in India.

Its surprising to note that our prime minister tops the chart of maximum followers in the country on his twitter handle followed by Arvind Kejrival and Rahul Gandhi. Today internet banking, railway and air reservations, google searches for any information, instant photography of an event and information relating to any service have made the peoples lives entirely convenient and comfortable.

In the event of capturing any unusual event of public interest if captured through mobile cameras are usually instantly posted in social networking sites that go viral in minutes and draw the attention of the media and the governments. In other words, these sites have alerted the various government departments and stake holders and at times keep them on tenterhooks or make them answerable to the common masses.

The world has squeezed and people and informations have come to your doorsteps. However, it’s also true that the addiction of social media has spoiled those who stick to it for just killing time and thus losing their physical action and achivement part. Using social media at the cost of one’s performance that results into sheer wastage of time, energy and sustenance including family n carrer interests is definitely a liability and should be given up unless or until it hels him or her achieve something credible or worthwhile.

It’s definitely a huge revolution of Information technology for which the credit primarily goes to the former prime minister of the country late Rajiv Gandhi and the then IT brain behind it Sam Pitroda. I remember the days of 1991 when Rajiv opened the the doors for Liberalisation and computers the entire opposition was against him as if heavens have fallen down.

The opposition’s logic was the people of the country would loose employment enmasse and there’ll be poverty all around. But fortunately today those who opposed Rajiv Gandhi are the biggest and the massive users of the social networking sites and internet which is providing employment to the youths of the country. The time is not far when print journalism will replace to digital and online journalism and the newspapers would be the thing of the past. What do you say friends?

If the arch political rivals and diametrically opposite ideologues like the Congress or the Congress led NDA that includes the left parties as well, oppose the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party to the core it is definitely something that is acceptable and as per the norms of politics. But if parties very much close, ideologically and politically which also support each other at the centre and the state like Maharashtra target the ruling BJP and its conglomerates with precision its definitely not only hypocritical but something to worry about. ( by the ruling party at the centre).

Yes, I am talking about the strong political party of Maharashtra, having quite a stronghold in Mumbai in particular, having its MLAs in the state assembly supporting the BJP government of Fadnavis and also ruling the Bombay Municipal Corporation as a majority party, supported by BJP.

The most interesting thing in the Shiv Sena BJP alliance in Maharashtra is that despite the Fadnavis government ruling there with SHIV SENA’s support the chief minister’s position is always on tenterhooks as the Shiv Sena behaves in a more arch rival fashion than the traditional rival Congress.

Whether it was the issue of ministry formation at the centre, election of the president of India, issue of demonetisation, GST or bullet train the Shiv Sena under the presidentship of flamboyant and furious Udhav Thackarey and Raj Thackarey of the rival faction have always been opposed to the BJP high command and the prime minister Narendra Modi and the party’s popular newspaper SAAMNA had been criticizing the BJP led NDA government on various political matters and official decisions tooth and nail to the utter dismay, surprise and shock of the central BJP and the state leaderships, respectively.

The way Shiv Sena and its breakaway group MNS under Udhav and Raj Thakarey take BJP and its state and central leadership to task almost everyday it definitely gives the impression that it’s not the Congress party which is the arch rival but the Shiv Sena and its leaders who leave no opportunity to deplore BJP and its central and state government of Maharashtra.

After the Mumbai Elphinestone FOB tragedy both the Shiv Senas’, particularly the Maharashtra Nav Nirman Sena chief Raj Thakarey has while strongly condemning the tragic deaths of 23 Mumbaites have issued warning to the central and state governments of BJP that it will not allow the work of the Bullet train in the Mumbai Suburb and if need be would forcibly stop the project alongwith thousands of its volunteers even if they are countered through force or police. Raj Thakarey said that unless or until the lives of the Mumbaikars are not safeguarded by upgrading the condition of Indian railway networks and its FOOT over bridges etc. the bullet train project is of no relevance to the people of MUMBAI.

^Not only this but while addressing a largely attended rally in MUMBAI on the eve of DUSSHEHRA Shiv Sena chief Udhav Thakarey lost no opportunity to lambast and criticize BJP’s top leadership amid huge uproar saying in a furious tone: Don’t teach us patriotism. The day when we need to be taught patriotism hasn’t come yet.

An atmosphere has been created that those who favour demonetisation and GST are patriots and those who oppose are traitors said he. Thakarey also questioned the credibility of BJP sharing power with the PDP in J&K and asked why hasn’t the special status of the state been revoked till yet which happened to be its one of the main election planks.

He outrightly crticized the over ambitious bullet train project of Narendra Modi and rejected the proposal saying that the need of the hour is improvement in the indeginous railway infrastructure. Thakarey criticized the implementation of GST terming it as anti people and said that even in Pakistan petrol and diesal are much cheaper.

Just imagine a party ideologically similar to the BJP who supports BJP led NDA and shares power with it always criticizes and condemns it but the Party chief AMIT SHAH and PM NARENDRA MODI ARE MUM. The question is WHY? Sounds unusual and uneasy indeed. WHAT’ s your take friends

Today the NDA is in power in 18 out of the 29 States. Some have argued that the Indian polity has again returned to single-party dominance system, with the BJP taking the place of the Congress.

It’s become almost certain that the BJP will win Lok Sabha elections 2019. Today the NDA is in power in 18 out of the 29 States in which thirteen have a BJP Chief Minister. Some have argued that the Indian polity has again returned to single-party dominance system, with the BJP taking the place of the Congress.

Opposition has failed so far, because it has tried to challenge the BJP on its home ground. BJP on the other hand has prospered by scripting an alternative national narrative around:

  • A Hindutva-infused nationalism;
  • Turning elections into a referendum on national leadership, specifically Narendra Modi’s leadership;
  • Framing the elections in all-India terms rather than engage with State-level issues.

The Opposition’s counter-narrative should include:

  • Conveying an idea that the 2019 polls are about choosing between, a coalition regime to protect the values of pluralism and federalism, and a majority under an authoritarian leadership.
  • Framing the election as a referendum not on leadership but on democratic values

Indian democracy has never worked anyways, under powerful parliamentary majorities led by a PM unchecked by coalition dynamics. Two examples are Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi.

The Opposition’s success now hinges on it’s effectiveness in convincing the people that if they value their nation’s democratic traditions, they must elect a coalition government in 2019.

Gujarat is really lucky to have Narendra as the Indian prime minister, though he has contested the parliamentary election from Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh. While the election of the state assembly of Gujarat is due in just three months to come, Gujarat is lucky to have the long awaited Sardar Sarovar Dam inaugurated by the PM just few days after the highly over ambitious high speed Bullet train project with a whopping Japanese investment of Rupees 1lakh 10 thousand crores with a mere n negligible 0.1 percent interest of the incoming fifty years, almost free of cost was launched and prime minister Narendra Modiextending gratitude to Japan while addressing the massive gathering at Sabarmati, Gujarat on the day of its inaguration in the presence of Japanese PM Shinzo Abe. Prime minister Modi’ s second visit to Gujarat in just a week’s time speaks of the seriousness of the former to ensure that BJP stands victorious in his home state by all counts.

The Gujarat election results would be infact the litmus test for prime minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah, the BJP’s national chief who’ ve just five months ago brought victory for their party in the largest state of the country, UP, breaking the political stronghold of the then ruling Samajwadi party having tremendous hold amongst the muslims and the backwards, including the caste dominated Bahujan Samaj Party led by its undisputed leader and former chief UP Behen Mayawati.

BJP is today ruling in majority of the states of the country having broken the political backbone of Congress in several states. BJP governments are today ruling in Uttar Pradesh, Assam, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar as a coalition partner with JD Nitish, Uttarakhand, Chattisgarh, Manipur, Goa etc.

Though Delhi and Punjab are ruled by AAP and Congress. Therefore, after a pro Modi winning spree in majority of the states, the BJP high command and prime minister Modi is in no mood to loose Gujarat, their traditional stronghold where Narendra Modi and BJP has been weilding power since the last one and a half decade. It was Gujarat only that inspired and led Modi to become the prime minister of the country with a historic majority alongwith the overall support of other states of the country.

For BJP however it seems to be a cake walk say Modi supporters as the former Gujarat CM and Congress heavy weight Shanker Singh Vaghela has left Congress and formed the third front which may further not only erode Congress’s credibility but also create divisions in anti BJP vote banks. May be as the state elections come nearer, he may hobnob with BJP keeping in view his harsh opposition and annoyance with the Congress leadership at the centre. Moreover, seven of the Congress MLA’ s have already defected to BJP during the states’ biennial election opposing the candidature of Sonia Gandhi’s political secretary, AHMED PATEL who’d however won his RS seat despite all odds.

However, it still remains to be seen what impact would Hardik Patel, a powerful mass leader of the Patel community put in Gujarat election?

Prime minister Modi’s impressive speech and his successful attempt to openly criticize, condemn and include the Pakistan sponsored terror organisations in the declaration of the BRICS SUMMIT is highly laudable which has sent across an extremely healthy signal about India’s commitment to fight terrorism tooth and nail along with Brazil, China, South Africa and other invitees at the meet at Xiamen, CHINA.

Today, the entire world community is the victim of radical terrorism aided and abetted by Pakistan and China being soft on them earlier. Prime Minister Modi’s eloquent address to declare Al Qaida, Haqqani network, Lashkare Tayyeba, Hizbul Mujaheddin, Jamaat Ul Dawa etc as international terrorist organisations nurtured by Pakistan creating havoc in India, Afghanistan, USA and other countries of the globe has not only badly demoralized and again exposed Pak in the international sphere but has also been successful in making China fall in line who was earlier reluctant to openly accept the former’s role of aiding and abetting various terror organisations creating disturbances in the Asian Subcontinent. It may be recalled that prior to the visit of Prime Minister Modi to Xiamen, China, the Chinese foreign ministry’s spokesperson had issued an advance notice that Pakistan sponsored terror would not be an appropriate topic for the BRICS summit to discuss.

Apart from this, the Pakistan National Assembly had also passed a resolution declaring America’s role and participation in Afghanistan’s developmental initiatives as detrimental to regional peace and stability. Sounds shocking and ridiculous. Just a few days ago United State’s president had reprimanded Pakistan for encouraging dreaded terror groups on its land and making Pak a safe haven to constantly nurture them creating blood bath in India, Afghanistan, US and other countries of the globe. US Congress has also stopped the 255  million US dollar  worth of financial aid to Pakistan for the time being and put the money in the escrow account till it mends it ways and gives up protecting these terror groups, a big headache to the world community. Prime minister’s impressive speech appealing to the BRICS NATIONS to unitedly fight Pak sponsored terrorism and inclusion of the above mentioned dreaded terror outfits in the BRICS DECLARATION to be  officially declared as international terror groups is a big achievement for India in the international scenario, a second achievement after the peaceful settlement of the 70 days old Doklam stand off The BRICS declaration unambiguously exhibits the changing attitude of the Dragon as this is for the first time that Pakistan’s closest ally China has agreed to counter these terror groups being openly blessed and supported by Pakistan, the issue on which it was mum and silent earlier. The declaration takes the collective pledge to counter and fight these groups and terrorism unitedly and to hold the countries supporting them directly responsible.
