DNA EXCLUSIVE: Sonia signals to party leaders: Priyanka as working president? 14.8.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
When the Congress Working Committee (CWC) met in New Delhi on August 8, supposedly to discuss the issue of the 75th anniversary of the Quit India Movement, party president Sonia Gandhi had something else on her mind as well. At the end of the meetings, she quietly broached the subject of a change in leadership of the party with some senior leaders, including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh — wondering aloud if Priyanka Gandhi should be made Working President of the party. "It wasn't a casual question. She clearly had something on her mind. There is lot of merit in this move, if it happens," observed a CWC member. If the response of the small group of leaders — just three to four, as the source described it — is an indication, her thought received strong support. While there have been demands in the past that Priyanka should be given some formal role in the party, the family has repeatedly sidestepped the issue. On her part, Priyanka has restricted herself, politically that is, to the Gandhi family ...

Nitish Kumar back in NDA: Opposition can kiss their 2019 dreams goodbye 27.7.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
In a bloodless change of power equations in Patna, Nitish Kumar ditched his friend-turned-foe-turned-friend Lalu Prasad Yadav and Congress to form government with BJP in Bihar.  On Wednesday evening, after sudden conscience pangs and series of well-coordinated meetings and tweets, the two parties which fought bitterly in the run-up to 2015 Assembly polls suddenly decided to let bygones be bygones and joined hands with each other. While Rahul Gandhi may claim that they were aware of the plan from three months back, the initial reaction of RJD and Congress gave away the truth, that they were completely taken aback and checkmated in this game of thrones. While Bihar looks to be a sealed deal for now, unless RJD manage to wean away a sizeable number of JD(U) MLAs, the reverberations of the political earthquake in Patna is likely to be felt across the country. Riding on a euphoric win in 2014, the BJP-led by Amit Shah and Narendra Modi have had a trailblazing run in electoral politics in the last three years. ...

Nitish Kumar's resignation: Corruption card comes back to haunt Opposition 26.7.2017 DNA: Money
While the end of the Mahagathbandhan was expected, Nitish Kumar’s resignation by taking a moral high ground was not. Nitish’s resignation was soon followed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeting and congratulating the Bihar Chief Minister for taking a stand against corruption. This is a signal that PM intends to revive the issue again closer to elections to use it against Opposition faces in different parties This development will also put the Congress’ idea of a mahagathbandan or a grand alliance on the back foot. Nitish’s resignation also brings BJP and JDU together, putting a spanner in the Opposition’s plan to counter BJP in the Hindi heartland during national elections. Many would call Nitish a political shape shifter and an opportunist. But in politics there are no permanent enemies or friends. It also reflects the reduced strength of the Congress to influence decision making at the regional level. The decision would put further pressure on the Congress to explain its position on the issues of ...

Do you have alternative agenda to match Modi govt, Nitish asks Congress 3.7.2017 All Current Affairs Stories
In a thinly veiled dig at the his alliance partner Congress, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar asked the opposition parties should present "an alternative agenda" against the Modi government instead of merely harping on their unity. He asked the Congress to take the lead as "a big party in setting an alternative narrative" for the next general election. "Just talking of unity among opposition parties isn't enough," the Chief Minister told the scribes on the sidelines of his weekly Lok Samvad programme, "there must be an agenda against the BJP-led government at the center. This must not be just in reaction to what the BJP says or does, but an alternative narrative. Congress, being the largest party, must lead from the front."He once again rejected the rumors about becoming PM face for opposition in 2019. "We are a small party and very well know the futility of nourishing prime ministerial ambitions. It is seen that the candidate whose name is in circulation never gets to the post," ...

CM praised for 'good governance' 12.6.2017 Deccan Herald - State
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Monday virtually received a pat on his back from Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi and AICC general secretary in charge of Karnataka K C Venugopal for providing "good administration". Addressing the extended KPCC general body meeting, Rahul said Siddaramaiah had been doing a good job as the chief minister. "The chief minister has concern for the poor and the downtrodden. It is a true Congress government in Karnataka," he remarked. Earlier, Venugopal said the government led by Siddaramaiah had fulfilled 95% of the promises made by the party before the 2013 Assembly elections. The Union government led by Narendra Modi has fulfilled only 25% of the total promises the BJP had made during 2014 Lok Sabha elections, he said quoting an analysis done by the Congress. The Congress government has been doing a good job. "The party will win the next Assembly elections with a huge majority in Karnataka. And the 2018 Karnataka Assembly election results will bring a remarkable ...
