Thumbs down Modi vs Rest: Biggest anti-BJP unity show since 1996. Will it hold till 2019?

Modi vs Rest: Biggest anti-BJP unity show since 1996. Will it hold till 2019?

Looks like all who are corrupt and have looted the Indian public are coming together as Modi has stopped their corruption and the people are rejecting them. Good signs for India as this shows that all the corrupt goons are shit scared of their relevance and existence in a progressing India.

Quote:
BENGALURU: The idea of a grand anti-BJP coalition emerging before next
year’s Lok Sabha polls appeared to be on a firmer footing on Wednesday
when almost all the non-BJP parties came together here to celebrate the
inauguration of the JD(S)-Congress coalition government, raising the
prospect of a mouth-watering ‘Modi versus Rest’ contest in 2019.

Barring Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik, who decided to stay away, and his
Telangana counterpart K Chandrashekhar Rao who had visited H D
Kumaraswamy and his father H D Deve Gowda on Tuesday, leaders of
most non-BJP parties were present to mark the launch of a regime hastily
forged to stop the saffron party from wresting control of Karnataka.

The oath-taking ceremony of CM Kumaraswamy and his deputy, Congress’ G Parmeshwara, on the lawns of the imposing
Vidhan Soudha marked the first time that the entire phalanx of outfits had come together on one platform. Most of them have
little in common but for an intense and still-growing desire to stop Prime Minister Modi from getting a second term. The parallel
with the Kumbh, when people of different persuasions and divergent sects come together, was obvious and irresistible. The
difference was that those present on the big dais were motivated by clear-eyed political calculations rather than hope of any
spiritual salvation.

This was the biggest gathering of anti-BJP forces since 1996 when the first such grouping emerged as the single largest group
in Lok Sabha.

The context itself was the biggest give-away. BJP may have fallen tantalizingly short of a clearly majority, but its performance
defied the estimates of Congress, JD(S) and other opponents. The strong saffron showing underlined that Modi’s pull remains
strong, and that Amit Shah has turned BJP into an electoral machine which can encash this asset even on terrains that are not
too friendly.

The resultant anxiety caused a chastened Congress to rush to pledge support to Kumaraswamy and West Bengal CM Mamata
Banerjee to share the same dais with CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury and Kerala’s Marxist chief minister Pinarayi
Vijayan.

UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, who had played the sheet-anchor of unity efforts when faced with a similar challenge of saffron
ascendancy in 2004, seemed ready to perform the same role. The former Congress boss, who lost no time in calling up JD(S)
patriarch, former PM H D Deve Gowda, to offer Congress’s support to the latter’s son, warmly reached out to others, engaging
Lalu Prasad’s son and successor-designate, former deputy CM of Bihar Tejashwi Yadav, in a lively conversation and showed
conviviality towards others.

But it was her geniality towards BSP Mayawati that was most striking, with the BSP boss fully reciprocating. In the post-event
photo-op, Sonia was the pivotal figure, once again paying special attention to the Dalit czarina. She asked RLD leader Ajit Singh
to step aside to make way for Mayawati to come in the front.

The Congress chief was also quick to take Mayawati’s hand to raise it high while asking Sharad Pawar to do the same.
In contrast, Rahul seemed subdued: something attributed to the disappointment over the party’s defeat and the possible
awkwardness in being friendly with opposition grandees decades senior to him.

Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati looked comfortable, while the presence of Ajit Singh along with the two UP satraps pointed to
the challenge that BJP faces in next week’s by-poll for Kairana Lok Sabha constituency in west UP.

Looks like Modi Sarkar has cut avenues for corruption. but is that translating into benefits for mango people. i could vouch for effeciency in Visa processing at Chicago consulate (in general even earlier, i thought the governments and bureaucrats were bashed than they needed to be.
How is the situation at the ground. Let me find out next month when i will be there.

BTW, Modi Supporters should say 'Bring it on' - Ab aayega mazaa (i was searching or Sholay's dialog, but not there on youtube.

I think India will lose a big chance if Modi is not re-elected with similar numbers. But then India is used to missing chances, and finally chalta hai bidu..

Not many state govts left with Congress and Modi made it much tougher to get legal funds from abroad, black money is much tougher to use with big cash not easily available.

this is all very recent though! Congress has been filling its coffers since the last 60 years (or more). they cant have run out in less than 4 years.

Why invest when you know chances are less. They pulled back funding half way through the last elections. 60 years money is locked up with people, and Gandhi family is not ready to invest all by themselves.

Re: Modi vs Rest: Biggest anti-BJP unity show since 1996. Will it hold till 2019?

Here's my take on the Karnataka elections... and I have no political acumen. I believe I do understand people-think. From what I know, the BJP won the max number of seats but could not meet the mark to form a g'ment. So we now have a coalition g'ment in place. And this is definitely a big boost for BJP for the 2019 elections. The opposition parties, however happy and thrilled they seem now, have just taken the shovel to their own feet.

As seen in history, coalition g'ments are not always successful... they come apart easily and need extra care and attention to even function as a working g'ment. Does the individuals and parties that have come together have this goal Will they have the extra zeal Time will tell. But I feel the best option for the opposition parties would have been to let BJP form the g'ment. Now it seems they are destined to lose the big one in 2019.

Before Karnataka Trust Vote, A Congress Shocker For HD Kumaraswamy

https://www.ndtv.com/karnataka-news/...deputy-1857405

Quote:
Just before new Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy's test of strength today, his deputy G Parameshwara of the Congress cast doubts on his term with a stunning comment. Asked yesterday whether Mr Kumaraswamy would stay chief minister for a full five-year term, Mr Parameshwara said: "We have not yet discussed those modalities."

Speaking to reporters in Bengaluru on Thursday, he added: "We are also yet to decide on what portfolios have to go to them and what should be with us, then five-year term - whether they should be or we should also...all those modalities we have still not discussed."

Mr Kumaraswamy had said on the weekend that there was "no rotational arrangement for chief ministership" between his Janata Dal Secular (JDS) and Congress.

When the question was asked again in a different way, Mr Parameshwara hedged.

Was the Congress fine with giving the chief minister's post to the Janata Dal Secular for full a five-year term, Mr Parameshwara was asked. "After discussing...looking at the pros and cons (we will decide), our main intention is to give good administration."

In the assembly later, he said: "The purpose of the deputy chief minister's post is to help the Chief Minister."

Mr Kumaraswamy had dismissed reports about his party working out a power-sharing formula of heading the government for 30 months each. "No such talks have taken place," he had said on Sunday.

Congress lawmaker and former minister RV Deshpande, asked about his colleague's statement, said: "I don't want to comment now. But it will all be worked out. There is a coalition dharma. It was not observed the first time but Kumaraswamy has said he will learn from mistakes."

The previous Congress-JDS coalition government in 2004 was headed by a Congressman, Dharam Singh, with the deputy's post for the JDS. Mr Kumaraswamy brought down the government and embraced the BJP, becoming chief minister.

Despite swapping barbs and insults during the campaign for the May 12 election, the Congress and the JDS came together again, after the BJP failed to win an outright majority even though it emerged the single largest party.

28
COMMENTSSoon after the alliance was invited to form government, there was a dispute over the post of deputy Chief Minister; the Congress wanted two. While Mr Parameshwara was already in line for the job, there were reports that DK Shivakumar, the Congress leader instrumental in keeping the party's flock of lawmakers intact in the face of alleged attempts to engineer defections, also expected the post.

"Is it the same for those who win one seat and those who win the state? I have not come to politics to take sanyas. I will play chess, not football," Mr Shivakumar said, denying that he was upset
But of course, this is sourced to NDTV, and some here may not trust it

You are our own Secular media. NDTV, Siasat and what not.
BTW, the Cong guy might have been honest to admit that they need to bother about lasting for months and not years.
