Maharashtra mayhem: Is the BJP hitting three birds from one stone?

The top leadership of the BJP – PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah – is full time politicians unlike the opposition that wakes up from the slumber when crisis crops up. What could be the next move of the opposition, the BJP leadership plans its answer well in advance and in one such scheme Shiv Sena -- the former ally of the BJP is trapped.

They might be able to install their CM in Maharashtra but the party might become a history in the politics of Maharashtra. The public perception in the state is suggesting so. It is known to everyone that public perception has been key to the success of the BJP from long. Right from the very moment when SS started demanding chief minister’s post not only social media was abuzz but started working in subtle way but in later phases they are openly accusing the Shiv Sena for harming the Hindutva ideology. Similarly the Congress will be harmed for aligning with the SS. If the SS and Congress are sorted out things would be easy for the BJP in the state. 

So much so that even Marathies are going against the Shiv Sena that has predominantly a Marathi identity and the community being their core vote bank. An activist working in Navi Mumbai Netra Daoo said that the Shiv Sena is harming the very ideology that was groomed by Bala Saheb Thackrey. Can they tell people of Maharashtra, how would they deal with contradictions of the ideology of Shiv Sena and the Congress.

The BJP leadership is cashing in on very well on the development which apparently seems to be in the spree of marganalising its allies so they follow their dictate. So the SS is stuck in the trap laid by the BJP. “If the Shiv Sena thinks it can revolt and get the people’s sympathy, they really don’t know the public,” said BJP Party President Amit Shah, who understands people’s pulse very well.

The BJP works on the slogan of its incumbent PM that turn adversity into opportunity and his lieutenant Shah is very well executing his plans. If the alliance government of the Congress, the NCP and Shiv Sena is formed, it will collapse out of its own contradictions. This is what the BJP wants as after that the maneuvering of the BJP not only of parties, leaders but people will start.

Daoo said that people especially their voters are so angry with them that the next election is going to very dear for them as they will find it impossible to justify their decision and all such people will fall for the BJP as mid-term election is not ruled out. Even the BJP would not shy away from it. But lot more development is yet to unfold

Oil PSUs: Centre plans cutting stake in IOC to below 51%

By IndianMandarins 15 Nov 2019

The Centre is planning to cut its stake in the IOC below 51% to become a minority shareholder which currently holds 51.5 per cent in the oil major. To boost economic growth, the Central government has been on a divestment spree and has been considering cutting stake in several companies. IOC is the third oil company in which the government plans to cut it stakes.

Besides IOC, ONGC is looking to sell its stake in the recently-acquired refiner HPCL to a strategic investor, possibly an overseas oil company, to regain debt-free status of the company existing prior to the expensive buy.

The plan for HPCL follows the government's go ahead to invite a strategic investor for BPCL where the Centre owns 53 per cent stake. The divestment is important from the fiscal math perspective.

India's fiscal deficit at the halfway mark in 2019-20 stood at 92.6% of budgeted estimates, lower than 95.3% in April-September, 2018-19, helped by transfers from the RBI. With muted tax revenues, the government will have to undertake spending cuts and divest to achieve FY20 fiscal target of 3.3 per cent of GDP.
