The Plight of Congress – Na Ghar Ka, Na Ghat Ka
Think small on big issues
Tuesday, 26 June 2012
The Congress's disdain for norms in governance and for opinions other than those of the family that virtually controls the party is well-known. It was, therefore, no great surprise to see the dismissive attitude of the Manmohan Singh Government to the salutary suggestion made by BJP veteran LK Advani that the Government appoint a collegium to select the Chief Election Commissioner and Election Commissioners.
Now, for a law to stop allies from defecting
Tuesday, July 24, 2012
As expected, Mr Pranab Mukherjee, the candidate of the United Progressive Alliance has won the presidential election by a comfortable margin. Given the relative strengths of the UPA and its main rival — the National Democratic Alliance — in the electoral college and the support he received from parties outside these two formations, Mr Mukherjee's victory was a foregone conclusion. However, some political developments during the presidential campaign and soon thereafter have raised doubts about the stability of coalitions at the federal level from here on and its implications on governance.
Twist facts to tarnish Rao
Tuesday, July 10, 2012
The Congress refuses to accept the contribution of Narasimha Rao as Prime Minister in rescuing Punjab from terror and saving the economy. This appears to be the Rao-bashing season.

This is the standard narrative of many Left-leaning historians who shut their eyes to historical truths and moulded history to suit their ideological predilections.
Disgraceful, insulting, unfortunate. Wow!
Tuesday, August 21, 2012
Last week, BJP stalwart LK Advani described the United Progressive Alliance Government as “illegitimate” in the context of the ‘cash for votes' scandal of 2008, when an attempt was made to buy the loyalty of Opposition MPs during a trust vote in Parliament. Congress president Sonia Gandhi reacted wildly to the accusation, leading to much acrimony and adjournment of the House.
