An RSS ideologue vying hard to become BJP spokesperson

Old habits die hard. Once a self-proclaimed RSS ideologue and strategist is now trying hard to be allowed to appear in the media.

The self-proclaimed RSS ideologue earlier used to force people seeking some or the other favour to flock to his doorsteps. He is now trying hard to be accommodated as one of the spokespersons of the BJP. However, he has been conveyed via a senior RSS functionary and BJP General Secretary not to appear in media not only on behalf of the RSS but also for the BJP. He was asked categorically that he must refrain from such appearance.

Shah to focus more on home ministry for many unfinished works

By IndianMandarins 16 Oct 2019

Before relinquishing his post as party president by December, BJP president Amit Shah not only wants to train the new president to his style of working but also want major work of the party to be done. Now Shah wants to pay his complete attention of the home ministry where several unfinished issues are to be accomplished.

Shah has announced that he would make way for a new leader to head the BJP after party’s organisational elections are over by the end of this year. Shah wants state organization to be of his choice and by the time elections process of Delhi and Jharkhand will be started if not over.

Tenure of Shah gets over in December this year and it is likely that the present national executive president Jagat Prakash Nadda will be made the fulltime president of the party.

It was expected that Shah will make way for a new leader after being inducted as a Cabinet minister by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his government following ‘one person one post’ but he remained at the helm to complete some unfinished task.  Organisational elections are going on and a new president will assume responsibility in next two months’ time to take care of the party affairs.

With Shah at driving seat, SS unlikely to get equal no of seats in Maharashtra

By IndianMandarins 25 Sep 2019

Amid hectic parlays on seat sharing continuing in Maharashtra for Assembly polls, if BJP president Amit Shah is saying that Maharashtra elections will be referendum of Article 370 then he must be saying this for multiple audiences including its allies in the state. The message is loud and clear that the BJP is here to deliver and it will not buckle under any pressure from anyone on anything.

 

It has been communicated to Shiv Sena by the BJP that it is not ready to concede more than 120 seats to Shiv Sena albeit some fringe benefits of more ministerial births and post of deputy chief minister but term and condition will be of the BJP. During 2014, the BJP was uncertain about its performance in Maharashtra but this time round they are bulging with confidence.

 

The BJP is working on a formula in which the party and its smaller allies would claim 168 seats leaving 120 for the Shiv Sena. The BJP will give 8 to 10 Assembly seats to its smaller allies and contest on 160-158 seats on its own. Actually the BJP wants to win around 145 seats to gets simple majority of its own which they feel is very much possible in the present circumstances.

 

But Shiv Sena is insisting for the equal number of seats and also wants to swap some of the seats with the BJP but sources informed that the Shiv Sena being given equal number of seats does not appear to be working out.

Angry bureaucrats adding up RSS for ouster of AAP from Delhi

By IndianMandarins 21 Sep 2019

New Delhi: If some reliable sources are to be believed some unhappy and humiliated bureaucrats are working to oust Kejriwal (AAP) led Delhi Government in the next Assembly elections. They are working day in and day out to oust AAP. Many of them are in constant touch with the RSS leaders in Delhi to execute plans of the BJP. 

 

Reportedly, disgruntled civil servants are helping the RSS to find ways to weaken Kejriwal’s prospects. These bureaucrats are telling the RSS vulnerability of the government where it could be hit at and strength where it should not be attacked.

Crouching tigress’ hidden agenda: Didi meets PM

By IndianMandarins 19 Sep 2019

Creating narrative and ground reality are two equally important things and ‘Didi’ appears to understood it very well. At least meeting of the WB CM Mamta Banerjee with the PM Modi and agreeing to meet Amit Shah suggests so.

Mamata might have been able to address a section of her voters in West Bengal but constantly being at the loggerhead with the Centre did not produce any good to her.

In fact, Didi’s one of the dearest projects lying with the home ministry has been changing name of West Bengal to Bangla. On the other hand It is believed that the moment name change takes place memory of partition of Bengals fades away which Sangh Pariwar doesn’t endorse. This has apparently been the reason that Mamata needs to meet Shah which she might have agreed reluctantly.

But the issue on which Didi failed to get approval from a leader like Rajnath Singh, getting approval of Amit Shah will be an onerous task. Let’s see how long this bonhomie continues as Shah does not give any concession to opposition.

Triple talaq bill to tell the real strength of the NDA in Rajya Sabha!

By IndianMandarins 30 Jul 2019

New Delhi: It is the floor management of the house by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) that seems to be working for party when the triple talaq bill is introduced in the Rajya Sabha. The Bill has already been cleared in the Lok Sabha. But actually opposition political parties are wary if the bill will be stalled in the Rajya Sabha again as in the past. The bill makes instant Triple Talaq illegal and entails three years jail and a fine for offenders.

The BJP got Parliament sessions extended in view of these important bills. The BJP feels that any amendment in triple talaq will take away its deterrent factor. So neither the BJP is ready to make any changes in it nor do they want to send it to Parliament select committee. There is another thing out of these developments that the BJP wants to fathom depth of opposition before 35A is taken up in Parliament.

Meanwhile, the entire opposition is anxious as it failed to send the amendments to the Right to Information Act to a Select Committee last week but what they feel that triple talaq is a little tricky and even some of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) partners like Janata Dal (United) might not support the government on this issue. But the concern of the NDA is not their support but if they join the opposition block and the prevailing situation in NDA vie-e-vis JD (U) is such that anything might happen. JD (U) chief is looking for an opportunity to teach the BJP a lesson.

Opposition political parties are not yet sure how to deal with the triple talaq bill in the Rajya Sabha where the NDA still does not have a majority and it has to depend on Biju Janata Dal, Telangana Rashtriya Samiti and YRSCP. But TRS has certain reservation on triple talaq issue so the NDA will have to chalk out a new strategy. The opposition political parties that are clear in their ideas about opposing this bill included the Congress, TMC and the Left Front out of which the TMC is the most vocal. The rest of the opposition has failed to figure out how to prevent the NDA that it is not able to get it passed. Meanwhile, the BJP has issued a whip to its MPs.

It is not the party but some of the MPs belonging to Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, Nationalist Congress Party and Samajwadi Party who were not very enthusiastic on RTI Bill benefiting the NDA, it is to be watched out for if the same thing happens in triple talaq case. It would also be interesting to see how many opposition MPs will turn up to oppose the bill.

RSS short-listing 1000 young pracharaks: Reshuffle of 'Prant-paracharaks' likely

By IndianMandarins 19 Jul 2019

New Delhi: In its attempt to make generation shift, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is looking for around 1000 young pracharaks to work for the organization across the country. The organization has not only sought names but also started working on them.

 

Sources said that certain conditions have been laid for these pracharaks like they should be between 30 and 40 years of age and must be dynamic in every sense. Besides these 1000 pracharaks, the RSS is also planning to replace some of its state organizing secretaries and 'Prant-pracharak' to make working of the organization even better.

 

Sources said that the RSS wants such 'Prant-pracharak' to the service who are able to move swiftly as the responsibility requires more dynamism. Some of the RSS leaders at the top are physically unfit to take up the responsibility. The RSS has taken back Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national general secretary (organizations) Ram Lal in the outreach department of the organization.

 

There are many regions in the country where the RSS feels that there are immense possibilities of its expansion and not only possibility but also the need to reach out to people of the area. So all these decisions were taken in its recent meeting in Vijayawada and the organization started working in the same directions.

 

If sources are to be believed then the organization has already working on the name and some names have already reached. They will be scrutinized and then these selected pracharaks will be sent to particular areas where the RSS wants to send them.
