A Phenomenal Statesman & Poet: LK Advani's tribute to Atal Bihari Vajpayee 17.8.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Atal Bihari Vajpayee: A Statesman With A Poetic Soul (A Tribute to Atal Bihari Vajpayee) Haar nehi maanoonga/ Raar nehi thamoonga Kal ke kapaal par likhata-mitaata/ geet naya gaata hoon (I shall never accept defeat; Ever shall get ready for a new battle; I am he who erases old things and writes new things on the forehead of Time; I sing a new song) — Atal Bihari Vajpayee If I have to single out one person who has been an integral part of my political life almost from its inception till now, one who has remained my close ally in the party for well over fifty years, I have always unhesitatingly accepted it would be Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Many political observers have noted that it is only rare but, indeed, unparalleled in independent India's political history for two political personalities to have worked together in the same organisation for so long and with such a strong spirit of partnership. In the Prologue to this book, I have referred to a photograph of Atalji, Bhairon Singh Shekhawat and myself, ...

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 ...

Kumaraswamy to take oath on Monday as Karnataka CM, Rahul to attend, top opposition leaders invited 19.5.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
The opposition is planning a big show of strength on Monday when HD Kumaraswamy will be sworn in as Karnataka Chief Minister.

Earlier on Saturday, Left parties and the Trinamool Congreess termed the resignation of Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa without facing a trust vote a "victory of secular democratic forces". "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 ...
