Can't help if Rahul sees RSS in everything: Shah 22.5.2018 General News
BJP president Amit Shah today dismissed Rahul Gandhi's claim that the government wants to appoint officers of RSS's choice in central services, saying he cannot help if the Congress chief sees the Hinduva organisation in everything. He was responding to Gandhi's tweet in the wake of a proposal seeking to bring in major changes in the allocation of services to candidates who clear the all-India examination. It reveals Modi's plan to appoint officers of RSS's choice into the central services by manipulating the merit list using subjective criteria, instead of exam rankings, Gandhi claimed. "Tell me where the RSS comes in this? The examination will continue as it does now, there will be no arbitrary control over who will pass it. It is about evaluating performance in training. It is anyway a suggestion and no decision has been taken? Where does the RSS come in this? He sees the RSS in everything. What I can do," Shah told a press conference. He was asked to comment on Gandhi's tweet. The

It's not my fault if Rahul Gandhi sees RSS in everything: Amit Shah 22.5.2018 DNA: Opinion
JP President Amit Shah on Tuesday dismissed Rahul Gandhi's claim that the government wants to appoint officers of RSS's choice in central services, saying he cannot help if the Congress chief sees the Hinduva organisation in everything.

No ban on day-dreaming: Javadekar on Rahul's prime ministerial aspirations 22.5.2018 General News
Union minister Prakash Javadekar today took a dig at Congress president Rahul Gandhi's remark that he is ready to be the prime minister, saying there is no ban on "day-dreaming". The Congress has lost 20 states and it is in power only in a couple of states now. "If on that basis, Gandhi is thinking of becoming the prime minister, then there is no ban on day-dreams in this country," Javadekar told a regional television channel, when asked about the Congress chief's remark. Gandhi had recently said he is ready to become the prime minister if his party emerges as the "biggest" party in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. Asked if Gandhi could pose a challenge to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the parliamentary elections next year, Javadekar said, "A smart tweet or big talk is not politics. It is much more than that." The BJP had only two MPs in the Lok Sabha in 1984 and it won 282 seats in the 2014 general polls. The Congress was then 400, which reduced to 44, he pointed out. "There are lessons

KARNATAKA POLLS 2018: Oath billed to rally Oppn for '19 polls 21.5.2018 DNA: Popular News
Janata Dal (Secular) leader HD Kumaraswamy will meet Congress leaders Sonia and Rahul Gandhi in Delhi on Monday, two days ahead of his swearing-in as Karnataka CM, an event being designed to mobilise anti-BJP forces for next year's general elections. Opposition leaders Mamata Banerjee, Mayawati, Akhilesh Yadav, Chandrababu Naidu, Chandrashekar Rao and others are expected to attend the oath ceremony in Bengaluru. The CM-designate has personally invited the Gandhis. BJP's BS Yeddyurappa resigned after three days as CM without facing a Supreme Court-mandated floor test in the Assembly on Saturday as he remained short of numbers. This is the biggest political setback for BJP and a rare success for Congress after Narendra Modi swept to power at the Centre four years ago. The post-election alliance of JD(S) and Congress has staked its claim to form the government.

With the Congress and JD(S) set to form the government in Karnataka after the BJP failed in its efforts, BJP chief Amit Shah said today that governments formed by "such unholy" alliances are unlikely to last long and also rubbished charges of horse-trading by his party. In his first comments after BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa resigned as the chief minister of Karnataka today, Shah maintained the party did not indulge in any manipulation, and said rather it was the Congress which not only indulged in horse-trading but has "bought the entire stable". Speaking at a conclave organised by India TV here, Shah hit back at Rahul Gandhi over the latter's corruption charges against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he "does not take" the remarks of the Congress president "seriously".

Bitter-sweet result for BJP in Karnataka: What next for saffron party? 15.5.2018 DNA: Popular News
There is a jinx attached to Karnataka. Whoever claims the throne in Bengaluru, doesn’t rule Delhi. Even though the BJP juggernaut stopped short of a clear majority at 104, it has demonstrated that the appeal of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is still intact and its strategy to consolidate Hindu voters across the board has not lost steam — a crucial test ahead of 2019 general elections. After a diluted win in Gujarat, and bypoll losses in Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka has offered some solace by sending the most number of MLAs from the BJP. More numbers for the BJP will also means that it will be able to send two MPs to the Rajya Sabha. Four Rajya Sabha members from Karnataka will be retiring in June, 2020. Even if the BJP will not be able to form the government, the results will significantly affect Tamil Nadu and Kerala after losing an important ally, the Telugu Desam Party, in Andhra Pradesh. The five southern states — Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala — and one union ...
