BJD grapples with discontent amid saffron surge in Odisha 28.3.2017 Business Standard: News Now
All is not well with Odisha's ruling Biju Janata Dal and the churning within is getting reflected in the sharp views its senior parliamentarians are expressing openly.Following the BJP's recent surge in the state-wide local body polls, Lok Sabha member Tathagata Satpathy on Monday came out with a conspiracy theory accusing the saffron party of trying to break the regional outfit. Without taking any names, Satpathy said a fellow lawmaker was hand-in-glove with the centre.On Tuesday, it was the turn of senior BJD leader Baijayant Jay Panda, probably whom Satpathy was trying to insinuate, with strong views against party president and chief minister Naveen Patnaik.Panda, who wrote a long piece in a regional paper and later posted an English translation "BJD:Time for Introspection" on Twitter, apparently questioned Patnaik's style of functioning.According to Panda, the recent local body polls in Odisha should not have come as a surprise to anyone as widespread corruption and sheltering of

The Young Turks Really, Really Don't Want You to Compare Them to Breitbart 28.3.2017 Mother Jones
Cenk Uygur bristles at the notion that the progressive media company he co-founded more than a decade ago, the Young Turks, is becoming the Breitbart of the left—that is, a pugilistic news outlet waging an ideological war with the establishment class. If you ask him, the comparison is backward. "Andrew Breitbart, when he was on my show before he passed away, said they emulated us, not the other way around," Uygur told me in mid-March, after finishing a panel at South by Southwest. "They get a lot of credit now because our idiot president reads them, but in terms of traffic, they're nowhere near us." Besides, he added, Breitbart had done it wrong. "The trick is to be honest, and that's the part they left out." The comparison, though, was still on Uygur's mind a few days later. "We have 80 million unique viewers" a month, he said on his nightly YouTube show—a figure that's roughly double Breitbart's monthly readership. "Breitbart is a pimple on our ass." Yet in the aftermath of the 2016 election, the ...

Dholpur bypoll: litmus test for BJP govt 26.3.2017 Deccan Herald - National
With the bypoll in Rajasthan's Dholpur constituency just around the corner, party leaders from the BJP and Congress are leaving no stone unturned to emerge victorious. The election on Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje's home turf is scheduled on April 9. With the Assembly election in Rajasthan slated for next year, the Dholpur bypoll is being considered as a litmus test for the ruling BJP. The result will be treated as people's opinion of the government's performance in the last three years. The seat fell vacant after BSP MLA B L Kushwaha was disqualified from the Assembly after being convicted in a murder case. Interestingly, the BJP has fielded Shobha Rani Kushwaha, wife of B L Kushwaha. Shobha had joined BJP in February. After getting a thumping majority in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan BJP leaders, including state BJP president Ashok Parnami, ministers like Yunus Khan, Rajendra Singh Rathore, and BJP MP Dushyant Singh had been campaigning in Dholpur for the upcoming election. Parnami told DH, "BJP will win ...
