PBs twisty take on the top five headlines of the day.
1. Cong picks Chidambaram, Sibal, Jairam for Rajya Sabha polls
It can be deemed as a good move because P Chidambaram, Kapil Sibal and Jairam Ramesh one of the most educated persons in the party. Go for pro farmer policies but at the same time you need to be open with the old things that you had done like in 1990’s.
But then again, it seems like receiving a consolation prize for those who have no hopes of getting elected in near future. One can now expect more fireworks in the Rajya Sabha.
2. With Eye On Poll, Modi May Include New Faces From UP
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah on Friday confirmed that the much awaited Union Cabinet reshuffle will take place soon. Though he did not specify the date but party insiders claimed that it is likely to happen in the first week of June. There are speculations that Modi may axe some ministers because of their poor performances, which is a smart move considering the 3 years of governance left where he has to fulfill various expectations.
3. First Time In History, Polls Cancelled On 2 Tamil Nadu Assembly Seats
Moral victory for the opposition in TN. The whole state was witness to large scale vote buying and the EC was as officious as a policemen on highway patrol answering his control room rather than controlling a mob. It is a travesty of justice that while only polling in 2 seats has been postponed indefinitely , elections were held in other areas with equal violations leading one to question the legitimacy of the current government in TN.
4. Wondering whether Modi govt deserves Raghuram Rajan: P Chidambaram
Rajan appointed by Congress, at present is good at his work. But what the political game in Swamy’s objection is they want a person appointed by BJP. If they increase Rajan’s term all the credit will go to Congress. And that’s the reason PC is in support of Rajan.
5. Committed to bringing back Kashmiri Pandits to Valley: Mehbooba Mufti
For the betterment of all, Don’t be the prey of the political tokenism for Kashmiri Pundits. Just curb violence & militancy, maintain rule of law, restore peace and normalcy which will be beneficial to everyone regardless who is what.
