KCR relies on astrologer, ‘pooja paat’: PM


Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao is so insecure that he relies on astrologers and ‘pooja paat.

Addressing his maiden election rally here, he slammed Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief and described the TRS and Congress as two sides of the same coin.

“This Chief Minister feels insecure and has no confidence in himself. He relies either on jyotish or pooja paat or ties nimbu mirchi,” said Modi, mocking at the rituals often performed by KCR.

Modi, in his speech, repeatedly attacked KCR for what he called failing to fulfil the promises made in 2014. He recalled that the TRS chief had publicly stated that he will not seek votes if he failed to provide drinking water to every household.

“Has he not misled people? Should he not be punished for this? A person who can’t even provide drinking water should not be allowed to rule,” he said.

Alleging that KCR destroyed Telangana, Modi said this was not surprising as KCR had done his ‘apprenticeship’ in the Congress. “He learnt it from Congress, which has PhD in destroying the country.”

The Prime Minister said both the Congress and TRS were family-centric parties, both lacked internal democracy and both indulged in vote bank politics and minority appeasement.

Recalling that KCR worked as a Minister in the Congress-led UPA government, Modi remarked that a person who ate “UPA’s salt” can’t be a rival of Congress.

“He was in Madam’s remote controlled government and was enjoying (power),” Modi said.

Modi urged people not to allow the Congress to make a comeback and pointed out that no state allowed the Congress to return after throwing it out of power.

He said people in states like Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and West Bengal were ready to trust others but not the Congress.

Stating that people of Telangana were caught between the devil and deep sea, Modi said the only alternative before them was the BJP, which he said would transform the state.

Anti-BJP front to benefit their sons and dynasties, says PM Modi


BJP national leaders have not spoken much on anti-BJP front till now. PM Modi broke his silence and accused the new front leaders of making their alliance to protect the interests of their respective sons, heirs and dynasties.

Modi says without naming anybody that there are over 300 to 500 such dynastic families across the country which have amassed huge wealth and power over the decades and which now want their own political power. The ultimate goal of the new front will be to become a puppet front in the hands of these families and nothing more.

Modi asserted that the BJP would remain committed to the protection and preservation of real people’s power.

Modi seeing Babu as a challenge for PM post, says Machilipatnam MP


TDP MP Konakalla Narayana has said that the Modi government is taking its revenge against AP and Telugu people only for political reasons. Modi is clearly afraid that his bid for a second term as PM will be stopped by CM Chandrababu Naidu at the national level.

Because of Naidu’s long track record in political field, AP CM is being seen as a major threat to the BJP’s election plans for 2019. Already, Naidu has proved TDP’s potential in marring BJP chances in Karnataka.

Moreover, Naidu is heading to incite anti-BJP sentiment among Telugus all over the country. The BJP leaders are stepping up criticism against Naidu but the TDP seems bent upon colliding with Team Modi head-on.

Modi shunted out CBI chief for ‘pointing fingers’ at Rafale deal: Rahul


Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of shunting out the CBI Director because he was “pointing fingers” at the controversial Rafale deal.

“Do you know what the ‘Chowkidar’ did last night? He (Modi) removed the CBI Director because he had called for the files of Rafale deal,” Rahul said in Jhalawar, the home turf of Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.

In a post-midnight drama, the Centre on Wednesday virtually sacked CBI Director Alok Verma in the midst of a war at the agency’s top, a decision that drew condemnation from the opposition. Verma moved the Supreme Court, which will hear his plea on Friday.

Gandhi’s taunts on Modi and his accusations on the Rafale fighter planes deal drew applause from the audience.

Seizing the moment, Gandhi exhorted, “Taali Bajane Se Kuchh Nahin Hoga, Batan Dabane Se Hoga (clapping will not help, voting will).”

Modiji is known for his long speeches. He is always seen with dignitaries draped in ‘suit-boot’. However, neither he nor the Rajasthan Chief Minister is seen anywhere with farmers, he added.

Attacking Raje, he said that although Lalit Modi is sitting in London, he has given crores of rupees to the son of the Chief Minister.

He charged that Raje has closed 25,000 schools in the state, snatching the Right To Education of thousands of children.

The government refuses to waive off farmers’ loans. Farmers who fail to pay their loans are called defaulters, but when industrialists fail to pay their loans, the government gives them a red carpet welcome.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan’s State Parliamentary Affairs Minister Rajendra Singh Rathore said that Rahul Gandhi and other Congress leaders were spreading lies.

He said that Rahul was unaware of the fact that Rajasthan was ranked second in the NCERT report in the education stream. A total of 78,000 teachers were appointed during the BJP government.

Deputy PM to Mayawati?: Modi’s 2019 offer


In the face of mounting opposition, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP National President Amit Shah have once again done the impossible thing with the sole of purpose of preventing Congress from taking benefits out of dalit vote bank in 2019 elections.

Modi and Shah are stated to have offered Deputy Prime Minister’s post to BSP supremo Mayawati if she agrees for a pre-poll arrangement and join the NDA alliance on the national scene ahead of elections.

Rumours say this is the actual reason why Mayawati has overnight changed her stand and began moving away from Congress at a crucial time when all other anti-BJP parties are rallying together to teach Modi a lesson in December polls in five states.

If BSP joins NDA, there are chances of polarisation of dalit votes to a large extent in most parts of the country going by the way ‘dalit deputy PM’ card will be played effectively by BJP leaders.

This will also deal a blow to Congress, which has traditionally been dependent on dalit votes for political power and electoral victories in different states.

BJP’s game plan has also worked well with Mayawati considering the fact that she also needed support from a strong party at the centre as her BSP is suffering from electoral defeats despite having considerable vote share in different states.

Moreover, Mayawati is also facing charges of corruption in cases that are being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Enforcement Directorate.

Obviously, Modi and Shah continue agenda of winning elections rather than addressing concerns of erosion of ideology that BJP stands for.

In matters of politics and power, values always take a back seat.

Modi a poor PM?


These are the days when even small time politicians and businessmen and employees are making millions if given an opportunity.

But the story of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is different. He prefers to be the familiar, simple person who proudly says about his being a chaiwala in the beginnings.

Though he’s in the high office for over four years now, his total property worth is given out as just about Rs. 2.5 cr. This includes both movable and immovable property. This is till the end of the 2017-’18 financial year.

All this despite the fact that Modi served as Chief Minister of Gujarat for a record number of years in the past.

The Prime Minister’s Office has given out details of the PM’s property now.

As per these details, Modi has got just Rs. 49,000 in a bank account in Gujarat.

He has two deposits of Rs 1.07 cr and Rs 11.29 lakh. Besides, there are two bonds worth Rs 5.18 lakh and Rs 20000 and an LIC policy of Rs 1.59 lakh.

Modi bought one fourth share in an apartment in Gandhinagar in Gujarat at Rs 1.3 lakh way back in 2002. Now the worth of this share is Rs 1 cr nearly.

The PM owns gold jewelry worth Rs 1.38 lakh only.

No doubt, Modi cannot be considered a rich PM relatively speaking. At a time when PMs round the world are amassing huge wealth and end up facing assets cases.

Why is Modi not ordering probe into Mallya case: Congress


Accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of maintaining a “conspiratorial silence” on Vijay Mallya, the Congress on Friday asked why he was not ordering an “independent probe” into the fugitive businessman’s meeting with Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

Demanding the sacking of Jaitley, the party said that “despite startling revelations about a meeting between Mallya and Jaitley on March 1, 2016, both Modi and Jaitley have maintained a “conspiratorial silence”.

“Is this silence an admission of guilt by Modi and Jaitley?” asked Congress Spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala.

“Skeletons are tumbling out of the Modi government’s cupboard, unravelling a sinister conspiracy and collusion of government agencies, including the CBI, ED, SFIO and banks in permitting Mallya to escape the clutches of law.

“Jaitley and the consortium of banks led by the SBI and CBI/SFIO need to answer important issues,” he added.

The Congress leader said that the consortium of banks had met Supreme Court senior advocate Dushyant Dave on February 28, 2016, for advice on the Mallya case. Dave has gone on record (on Thursday) that he advised the SBI management to move the Supreme Court the next day and get Mallya’s passport confiscated. The SBI management and other banks never returned the next day for action against Mallya or for blocking his escape, said Surjewala.

“Who in the Modi government told the SBI and other banks to not move the Supreme Court on February 29, 2016, to block the escape of Mallya?” he asked.

“Why did the banks wait till March 5, 2016 to move the Supreme Court when Mallya had already escaped on March 2. Does it not prove a sinister conspiracy to help Mallya?”

“Mukul Rohatgi, the then Attorney General and close friend of Jaitley, has also made a startling revelation that Mallya could have been possibly tipped off and, hence, ran away.”

“After this statement, on what basis can any agency refuse to initiate investigation into the great government-assisted escape of Mallya?” the Congress leader added.

He questioned who was directing the banks not to lodge an FIR against Mallya or not provide the full facts of loan defaults and diversion of funds to investigating agencies.

“If the Prime Minister does not act, it will be proved that the watchman is not only a partner, but is also guilty,” Surjewala added.

Opinion : Narendra Modi -The Biggest Failure India has ever seen

Pseudo seculars and anti-nationals are the titles conferred by the BJP activists to those who criticize Mr. Narendra Modi – The Indian prime minister. I’m neither an anti-nationalist nor I believe in the secularism of the opposition parties. I followed Mr. Modi actively for past 13 years, from the time he participated in the Hindustan Times event in 2005 with Mr. Rajdeep Sardesai and answered all the media questions without fear. I listened to all his debates across all the channels, followed his election rallies in 2014 campaign. I strongly believed media hounded him for the Gujarat riots, tried to take him down and persecuted him for all the wrong reasons. Mr. Modi deserves a lot of credit for winning the 2014 national election despite so much persecution from the media, if it were anyone else they would have written his political obituary. Mr. Modi fought all the forces within his party and outside and emerged victorious.

Being a fan boy, I followed him as a Prime Minister of our country for the past four years and I am totally disappointed. He became prime minister amidst so much hype and fanfare and people have given him absolute majority first time after 1984. The people had a lot of expectations on him that he would transform the country and take country to newer heights. I feel most of the people are disappointed with his policies and he did not take any initiative that would truly transform the country. With one MP majority the former prime minister of India Mr. P.V. Narasimha Rao has transformed the country with his economic policies. People expected Mr. Modi would bring reforms in the economy, labor laws, privatization, companies act, land reform, agriculture, employment, and youth. He did not take any such initiative to transform our country

The first good initiative he took was to call all the SAARC leaders to his swearing in ceremony and all of them attended. But I don’t think that it had helped in improving the relations with those countries especially Pakistan. The relationship with the neighboring country is much worse compared to the earlier period. Mr. Modi has spent so much on his foreign trips and has given a boost to the foreign policy. He takes credit for much of it ignoring the Foreign Minister Ms. Sushma Swaraj. It looks like they don’t work together and are not on the same page as he handles most of the issues through PMO and own team than loop her in on the key initiatives. She responds well to the citizens on twitter and tries to help them wherever she can.

The elevation of Mr. Amit Shah to the President of the Bharatiya Janata Party is a wrong decision. To Mr. Shah’s credit he has delivered meticulously and performed par excellence than any other past presidents of BJP.In any scenario his performance is outstanding. Two power centers of the party from the same state has upset the ranks with in the party. With Mr. Modi being the prime minister, Mr. Shah would have wielded high influence already even if he is not the president of the party. But his muscular attitude and his ambition to form governments in all the states has upset most of the allies with in NDA. No allies of the NDA are fully happy, we can quote shiva sena, TDP, JDU, LJP as examples. It is Mr. Shah who is responsible for the weak relations with all the allies. Knowing that the BJP doesn’t have strong presence in the south he harbored wrong ambitions to form governments in states like Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. That upset regional parties like TRS and TDP. There is a strong prediction that Mr. Modi will not win absolute majority in the 2019 election, and Modi Shah combination cannot get the support of the allies with their attitude. For example, if you take West Bengal it looks like a war between TMC and BJP workers and not like two democratic parties trying to make their point. Modi Shah combine forgot that you have to be humble in victory and respect their allies.

Mr. Modi has won successive elections in most of the states after 2014. There is an increase in cow vigilantism and without the support of the establishment the cow vigilantes cannot be emboldened as they are now. Killing of people on the name of cow is terribly wrong and it needs to be condemned at the highest level in the strongest of terms. Mr. Modi did not deliver on the promise of cleaning of the river Ganga and the responsibility was assigned to Uma Bharti. The government failed miserably in cleaning up river Ganga and the government was reprimanded by the supreme court on this matter many times. The administration has not frightened the minorities but they definitely failed in controlling the vigilantism. After winning the UP-state election we hear stories of vigilantism but not of development.

Mr. Modi has failed terribly on the promise of stronger relationship with states. It is in the BJP manifesto that they will improve the relationship between the Centre and states. It looks like it is much worse now with opposition parties complaining no cooperation at all. The states where opposition parties are in power complain of step treatment and not providing proper funds for their development. The promises made to the state of Andhra Pradesh as per the reorganization act are not delivered. Mr. Modi promised in Tirupati that he will give special category status to Andhra Pradesh and backtracked on that promise and all the promises he made to that state. BJP with drew support from Jammu Kashmir government and all the blame has been assigned to the PDP. They have failed terribly in improving the state of J&K. In Bihar they formed an illegitimate alliance with the JDU as people did not give mandate to them to form the government.

Mr. Modi’s initiative of Demonetization is the biggest failure the country has seen. He has crippled the economy and made it cash less and could not announce till date how much money has returned to the banks. People are still suffering from no cash in the ATMs and no one knows when it will be resolved. People lost faith in the banking system and are scared to put money in the banks. People have believed that Mr. Modi had taken a daring initiative and still supported him in the elections of UP. But now people lost faith and patience on him as he could not make the system better. The other initiative is of the GST which he opposed tooth and nail as CM of Gujarat. The implementation of the GST is the worst with companies and people not knowing what to do. The GST has hit the states revenue and I hear that many companies are closed because of it. The failure to bring petrol and diesel to GST is also the failure of the government. The value of rupee to dollar is at all time low and the prices of petrol and diesel are all time high. The economy is in a bad shape and they could not control the price rise of essential commodities, he did not take any out of the box initiative to improve it.

Mr Modi did not keep his promise on Women’s Reservation Bill as it is not passed. He promised to setup fast track courts to convict elected representatives, no work on it at all. No major initiatives on Agriculture, Education, Youth affairs, Enterprises, Employment and providing opportunities to the youth. No data on how many jobs are created as part of the Make in India Initiative. No major employment initiatives have been taken to create jobs to the youth. No major work on irrigation or building dams for water to the agriculture and farmers. No MSP increase to the farmers until elections approached. No improvement in the farmers lives as still farmers are committing suicides across the country. No reform has been brought in the education sector rather than changing the curriculum to suit their interests.

Mr. Modi’s speech is repetitive and he is always on election mode delivering the same speech all the time. Swach Bharat, Electrification of 18,000 villages, providing loans as per mudra scheme but no data on the amount of loans given and the jobs created through them and the successful companies that are setup with that amount. I don’t see these as huge successes with the mandate he got, people expected that he would transform the country and much more. He could have achieved so much with the mandate and he has done so little.

Andhra, Bihar seek special status, Modi assures on provisions at bifurcation time


Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday assured states like Andhra Pradesh and Bihar, which have been demanding special status category, that the Centre is committed in “letter and spirit” to adhere to statutory provisions in place at the time of the bifurcation of states.

Briefing reporters here following the fourth meeting of the Governing Council of the NITI Aayog, its Vice Chairman Rajiv Kumar said that the Prime Minister, who addressed the Chief Ministers, clarified the Central government’s position on the claims of some states for special status.

His assurance came after Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu raised his long-pending demand of special category status which was supported by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

“Some states did raise the issue of special status. The discussions were more focused on the statutory provisions that were in place at the time of the bifurcation of states and the Prime Minister said that the central government is committed in letter and spirit to adhere to those provisions,” Rajiv Kumar said.

Earlier, Naidu raised issues related to bifurcation, agenda and other pressing needs of the state.

“Received overwhelming support from Chief Ministers, officials and dignitaries at the 4th Governing Council meeting at @NITIAayog, where we discussed issues relating to the AP Reorganization Act, 2014,” Naidu said in a tweet.

During his 20-minute speech, he also demanded the special category status for Andhra Pradesh.

Nitish Kumar also raised the demand for special status and supported Naidu’s move.

On the issue of the minimum support price (MSP) for crops raised in Budget 2018-19 towards doubling farmers’ incomes, the Vice Chairman described the MSP issue as “work-in progress”.

“The details are being worked out and a bouquet of options will be offered to the states for them to meet the Prime Minister’s promise of an increase of 1.5 times in the MSP,” he said.

Rajiv Kumar said that the Prime Minister, who is also the Chairperson of the Niti Aayog – the think-tank that replaced the erstwhile Planning Commission – also directed that a committee be formed to look into farmers’ issues.

It was also suggested at the discussions that states should also set up their own GDP targets which all add up to compose the national gross domestic product (GDP), he added.

PM favours simultaneous polls


Prime Minister Narendra Modi favoured simultaneous polls for the Parliament and State Assemblies. Ever since he took over the reins, Modi had been batting for the simultaneous polls, against which there were objections. His argument that the officials were tied-up with the election work in one State or the other all through the five-year term and thus the developmental works were taking backseat is being debated widely across the country. However, he mooted the idea once again at the NITI Aayog meeting on Sunday.

Three States – Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh – are set for Assembly polls some time in December this year. The States like Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Odisha, Haryana and Arunachal Pradesh are due in 2019. The States such as Jharkhand, Bihar and Delhi will go for elections early 2020 and Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Puducherry, Kerala, Assam and Jammu and Kashmir will go for elections in the middle of 2021. This would make 17 States out of 29 to be having elections to their State Assemblies in the next 24 months, while the remaining States have their Assemblies for 2022 and 2023. The Prime Minister wants these States too to go for simultaneous elections along with Lok Sabha. That would mean that the term of more than half of the States would have to be cancelled and these States are not accepting for the same.

The argument is that in case if the Central government, for any reason and at any point of time, loses the trust vote in Parliament, before the completion of the five years term or any Central government goes for early polls before the end of the term, then the States would suffer and it is for this reason, the States are not accepting to the simultaneous polls demand. While it does not look as a possible thing to happen, the sources indicate that the Prime Minister is getting ready for the early polls, in December this year, along with the three States of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh.

The Prime Minister is not inclined to give more time for the Opposition to get united as such unity had proved adverse to the BJP in the recent by-elections to the Lok Sabha and Assembly seats in various States in the north. The united Opposition is giving defeat after defeat to the BJP and the Prime Minister doesn’t want to give more time for the Opposition while waiting for him to complete his full term – May 2019.

However, it is to be seen if Narendra Modi sacrifices his six-months balance period and advances the Parliament elections to December 2019 or would stay in office for the full term.

Telangana CM meets PM, seeks Rs 20,000 cr for Kaleshwaram


Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Friday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi and urged him to provide Rs 20,000 crore for the Kaleshwaram lift irrigation project being built across the Godavari river.

During the hour-long meeting, the Chief Minister brought to the notice of the Prime Minister various demands pending with the Central government since the formation of the state four years ago.

Stating that Kaleshwaram is a lifeline for Telangana, Rao said the project being built at an estimated cost of Rs 80,000 crore aims to irrigate 18 lakh acres across 20 districts and provide water for drinking and industrial purposes.

The Chief Minister told Modi that in addition to the Rs 25,000 crore budgetary provision for the project, the state government obtained Rs 22,000 crore loans from financial institutions. He urged Modi to extend financial help of Rs 20,000 crore.

This was Rao’s first meeting with Modi since the former floated the idea of a federal front as an alternative to both the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress.

The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief has met leaders of various regional parties in the past few months to mobilize support for the proposed front.

KCR, as the TRS chief is popularly known, submitted 10 memorandums to Modi, listing various pending issues. According to the Chief Minister’s Office, the Prime Minister responded positively to the issues raised by him.

KCR told Modi that even four years after the formation of Telangana, the state is yet to have its own high court and requested one at the earliest.

The TRS chief informed him that out of 29 judges of the common high court at Hyderabad for both the Telugu states, only six are from Telangana.

“The Union Law Minister had given an assurance on the floor of Parliament to expedite the process to have a separate high court. The process may be expedited, and the Law Ministry may be directed to take immediate steps for establishment of separate high court for the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh without any further delay,” he said.

KCR sought adequate funds to the state to develop the Information Technology Investment Region (ITIR) in Hyderabad, as per the already approved scheme.

Expressing dismay over Union Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad’s recent statement that the Central government has dropped the ITIR scheme, KCR said if the government does not implement the ITIR scheme even after launching it five years ago, it will dent the credibility of the government.

He pointed out that the state government had submitted a Detailed Project Report (DPR) delineating land parcels to be covered under ITIR and identifying trunk Infrastructure Projects related to the land parcels. Some anchor companies have already started setting up industries.

KCR urged Modi to issue a new Presidential Order, incorporating the new zonal system finalized by the state government. The zonal system is aimed at ensuring equitable opportunities to the people belonging to different parts of the state.

Stating that the railway network in Telangana is below the national average, KCR called for early completion of various critical railway projects.

The TRS chief also urged the Prime Minister to direct the Defence Ministry to expedite the proposal of transfer of defence lands for construction of new Secretariat building and for the Strategic Road Development project.

KCR called for sanctioning an Indian Institute of Management for Telangana and for setting up an Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) in Karimnagar.

Modi government has enough numbers to defeat no-confidence motion


Notwithstanding the TDP quitting the NDA, the BJP-led government still has a comfortable majority in the Lok Sabha having the support of around 315 members and on its own has 274 — well above the current halfway mark of 270.

After the recent losses in the Uttar Pradesh and Bihar bypolls, the BJP on its own has 274 members and the allies account for 41 members.

They include a sulking Shiv Sena (18), which has still not said which way it will vote in a no-cofidence motion by the TDP.

The others are the Lok Janshakti Party (6), Akali Dal (4), Rashtriya Lok Samta Party (3), Apna Dal (2), JD-U (2) and AINRC, JKPDP, NPP, PMK, SDF, Swabhimani Paksha — all one each.

The AIADMK, which had contested the 2014 polls against the BJP but is generally seen to be its ally, has 37 MPs.

The TDP, which withdrew support to the Modi government and has moved a no-confidence motion, has 16 MPs while the YSRCP, which has also moved a no-confidence motion has nine MPs in the Lok Sabha.

It remains to be seen whether the TDP and YSRCP, which involved in a competitive one-up manship would vote on similar lines on the motion. Similar is the position of BJP ally PMK in Tamil Nadu which is also upset with the Modi government for not taking steps to implement the Supreme Court judgment in the Cauvery water issue by setting up a river water management board.

Ministers Ashok Gajapathi Raju and Sujana Chowdary submit resignation letters to PM Modi

Finally, TDP Cabinet Ministers, Ashok Gajapathi Raju and Sujana Chowdary met Prime Minister Narendra Modi just a while back, and have submitted their resignation letters. The move comes after, Chandrababu Naidu made it clear that TDP MPs will resign from Cabinet Ministries in a late-night press meet yesterday.

Prior to CBN’s press meet, Arun Jaitley’s controversial statements during a press meet early in the evening further strained relations between BJP and TDP.

Though the two TDP MPs were expected to submit their resignations in the morning, it was postponed to evening due to the unavailability of the Prime Minister. Upon meeting the PM, the duo has submitted their resignation letters at PM’s residence.

Ashok Gajapathi Raju served as the Minister of Aviation from May 26th, 2014. While, Sujana Chowdary served as the Minister of State for Science, Technology and Earth Resources from November 9th, 2014.

The two BJP Ministers in the AP State Cabinet, Kamineni Srinivas (Ministry of Health) and Manikyala Rao (Endowment Ministry) have resigned for their ministries today morning.

PK to leave YS Jagan’s camp?Modi behind the move?


Prashant Kishore has been a popular name in the political circles after the 2014 General Elections. He came to light with the victory of BJP in the 2014 Lok Sabha Polls. Prashant Kishore (or PK) is the man behind the victory of BJP in that polls. Post that, his spat with BJP President Amit Shah meant that, he maintained some distance with the BJP and Modi.

His next assignment was Nitish Kumar. He was the key strategist behind Nitish Kumar winning the Bihar polls and becoming the Chief Minister. Similarly, he has been roped in by YSRCP Chief Jagan Mohan Reddy. Keeping aside ‘wild sops’ promised by YS Jagan, PK managed to build an anti-Chandrababu wave to a certain extent in Andhra Pradesh in recent times. His suggestions for ‘MPs resignation’ and YSRCP comments on AP Special Category Status are proving worthy.

At this juncture, political circles are gossiping that, Prashant Kishore might soon leave YS Jagan’s camp, given a luring offer from the PM. According to some key insider sources, Modi is trying to avail Prashant Kishore’s services for the 2019 General Assembly elections. Given the stature of PM and BJP, Prashant Kishore might well swing that way, leaving YSRCP in the middle of the ocean.

How much did CBN ask? And how much did Modi sanction?

Every night we go to bed wishing our beloved ones ‘sweet dreams’. Even in our dreams, apart from us, rest all elements behave as per their nature. That’s the beauty. Similarly, though BJP and TDP played the drama, they were not able to control other elements. At times, the final destination of two political parties is one and the same, but the path they chose dictate their future. The same happened in the case of TDP & YSRCP. Though both parties wanted to be pro-BJP, TDP was caught foul, while YSRCP proved to be a big fool. At this juncture, with Janasena Chief Pawan Kalyan calling for a whitepaper report regarding the promised and received funds, the state media thoroughly cashed in. With Jayaprakash Narayan from JFC joining in for a quick live conversation, which was later followed by two gentlemen from BJP and TDP, more shocking facts have come out. Take a look what TDP and BJP had to say regarding the funds and development.

 TDP requests (in Crs)BJP Sanctions (in Crs)
2014 – 2015 Revenue deficit16,0003,979

Adding to this more things are yet to be revealed. The best part of the whole story is that Nara Chandrababu Naidu, the so-called Honorable Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, and his Bhajana Brundham, aka TDP MPs, have been dumb, deaf and numb all through these four years. With 2019 General and Assembly elections around the corner, it became an impending task for TDP to revolt against BJP, at least to have aface-off to campaign for the next elections.

In this whole drama, the biggest and least expected beneficiary is Janasena. With an unexpected twist, Pawan Kalyan came up with the AP JAC involving leaders like Jayaprakash Narayana (Lok Satta Founder), Undavalli Arun Kumar (Former Congress MP) and K Ramakrishna (CPI).
