JD(S)-Congress govt faces multiple challenges in Karnataka 20.5.2018 DNA: India
From arch rival to coalition partners, the Congress and the Janata Dal (Secular) face multiple challenges once they form a coalition government in Karnataka. The foes-turned-friends will have to keep their vote banks — including the rival Lingayat, Vokkalinga communities, and Dalits and Muslims — in good humour even while pursuing the coalition dharma. The crucial test will be in striking a seat sharing deal for the 28 Lok Sabha seats in 2019 general elections. This will be quite crucial as JD(S) has quietly made inroads into the strongholds of Congress in the recently concluded assembly election and caused it maximum damage. About 40 per cent polled Muslim and Dalit votes went to the JD(S) though the two communities traditionally supported the Congress. On top of it, Congress president Rahul Gandhi had dubbed JD(S) as BJP's B team, which was rebutted strongly by HD Deve Gowda and his son HD Kumaraswamy. It is to be seen how both the parties can forget past to start a fresh beginning in the ...

"It's a victory of secular democratic forces. The BJP never had the numbers, but the governor invited them to form government. The party was given time for horse-trading. Karnataka showed that the BJP's downslide has started," CPI leader D Raja told PTI. Secular democratic parties should learn a lesson from ...

Karnataka Assembly Elections 2018: Siddaramaiah govt a corruption tank, with pipeline connected to Delhi, says PM Modi 5.5.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
All guns blazing, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday mounted a scathing attack on the Congress over corruption, and asserted it will become "Punjab, Puducherry, Parivar" Congress after its defeat in the Karnataka Assembly polls. With the D-day for the polls drawing closer, Modi upped the ante against the Siddaramaiah government, alleging it has become a "corruption tank" for the Congress with a pipeline connected to Delhi, "where the money reaches directly". He also accused the top Congress leadership of auctioning tickets, party positions and even the chief minister's post. "After May 15 (when poll results will be declared), Indian National Congress will be reduced to 'PPP Congress'-- P for Punjab, P for Puducherry, and P for Parivar (family)," Modi told an election rally in Gadag, where he predicted the state's ruling party would be decimated in the elections. He accused the Congress of "auctioning" party tickets and posts, and recalled how a string of scams rocked the erstwhile UPA ...

Gujarat elections 2017: RSS body moves EC against Archdiocese of Gandhinagar 24.11.2017 DNA: Opinion
RSS-affiliated Legal Rights Observatory (LRO) has moved the Election Commission (EC) against Archdiocese of Gandhinagar, Archbishop Thomas Macwan, for releasing a signed communique which urged to "save secularism" and Indian from the "nationalist forces", which were on the "verge of taking over the country". Though no party has been named, yet the allusions to BJP and RSS are more than obvious. LRO has lodged a formal complaint with the EC, alleging a paid news angle behind the communique released on November 21. In the letter, which was accessed by DNA, the rightwing legal body has called for an inquiry and demanded action against the priest. "With this complaint, I urge you to immediately take action against Bishop and thwart his attempts to divide Gujarat voters on the bases of caste, creed and religion. As the statement is highly biased against ruling party, paid news angle should be investigated and due action be taken against those guilty," said LRO convenor and former RSS pracharak Vinay ...

Speaking to ANI, NCP’s Nawab Malik, CPI (M)’s Sitaram Yechuri and Congress’ Rajeev Shukla said that the if the BJP approved Parriakar’s statements, then the party was indulging in a dangerous double game, as gau rakshaks, claiming to be members of the party, have been assaulting those they suspect of carrying beef.. “Manohar Parkiar's comments show the BJP has a special set of rules for its party members. The fact that Goa's CM said that there will be no shortage of beef in the state, and that beef will be imported from Karnataka shows how the party’s true colours,” he said.
