    What ails Modi's BJP

    Being labelled as ‘party in retreat’ by the political analysts post 2004 and 2009 Lok Sabha debacle, currently the BJP rules 12 states on its own, six states and one UT as ruling alliance partner; not to forget the back-to-back Lok Sabha majority it got in 2014, and then in 2019. As a matter of fact, Narendra Modi became the only non-Congress PM to return with a better mandate (from 282 in 2014 to 303 in 2019). Many...

    What Jitin Prasada's move to BJP means

    Jitin Prasada has not received as much media attention throughout his career as he did in the past few days. He does not have a significant political heft to deserve such over-the-top coverage other than his impressive pedigree and closeness to the Gandhi family. If Rajiv Gandhi had his Doon School Old Boys’ Club, Prasada was part of Rahul Gandhi’s “Babalog” cohort. I remember him being in the news...
