Kejriwal retains supremacy - Pramod Kumar Singh, Pioneer
Arvind Kejriwal- led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) re-affirmed its supremacy over the BJP in the high octane Delhi Assembly elections by winning 62 seat out of 70. The AAP managed to retain its vote — 53.57 per cent this time against 54.3 per cent in 2015 — and beat the anti-incumbency  and the poll campaign blitzkrieg of Home Minister Amit Shah-led BJP. The national Capital witnessed an intense poll campaign led by the BJP’s humongous poll machinery backed by organisational set-up, against Kejriwal who changed... Read Full Article››
The Gandhi brand is losing its sheen - Kalyani Shankar, Pioneer
The Gandhi brand seems to be at a historic low at present. With its recent showing in the  Haryana and Maharashtra Assembly polls, the Congress has proved that the grand old party can survive without the dynasty. In both the States, the Gandhis did not campaign much but the party had done much better than expected. Gone are the days when the Congress depended on the leader at the top to get candidates elected, as in the days of  Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi.

Correcting a historic blunder - Ram Madhav, Indian Express
August 5, 2019, will go down in the constitutional history of India as a glorious day. A historic blunder committed about 70 years ago, on October 17, 1949 during the course of the Constituent Assembly debates has finally been set right. Article 370, which entered the draft constitution 70 years ago as Article 306A, has finally been abrogated. Nobody should complain because the abrogation of this discriminatory article has always been a running theme for the BJP and Jana Sangh.

Modi, great reformer - Amit Shah, Times of India
Some dates stand out in history. In the annals of India’s parliamentary history July 30, 2019, represents one such day. The passage of the historic triple talaq bill in Parliament’s Upper House is not just about enactment of one more law. It is about correcting a historical wrong. It is about restoring honour and dignity to Muslim women. It is about establishing gender equality. The bill’s passage shows the Modi government’s commitment to walk the talk on social reforms...

A politician of principles - M Venkaiah Naidu, Pioneer
It is a truism that occasion produces the leader. One of its telling examples would be Dr Syama Prasad Mukherjee (1901-1953), independent India’s first Minister of Industry and Supply and founder of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh in 1951. His 118th birth anniversary is being observed today (July 6). A qualified barrister by training, his passion was education, academics and Indian culture. A Vice-Chancellor of the Calcutta University at a mere 33 years — the youngest ever in India...

India incredibly Modi-fied - Navin Upadhyay, Pioneer
Modi hai to mumkin hai. The evocative tagline of the BJP campaign aptly reflects the party’s massive victory in the Lok Sabha polls. The brand ‘Modi’ has outshone every competitor, be it regional satraps or Congress president Rahul Gandhi, who found few takers for his “chowkidar chor hai” jibe at the PM. The result shows the BJP has emerged as a pan-India force as the saffron party made big inroad into the strongly protected fortresses...

Lessons from a massacre - M Venkaiah Naidu, Pioneer
Today marks the 100th anniversary of one the goriest episodes in human history and the darkest chapter of the British rule in India when an unarmed peaceful gathering of thousands of people was fired upon at Jallianwala Bagh on the instructions of General Reginald Dyer, leaving several hundreds dead and many more wounded. It was Baisakhi on April 13, 1919, and the thousands who assembled, including children and women at Jallianwala Bagh, were apparently unaware...

‘BJP will win more seats than in 2014,’ says PM Modi - Shashi Shekhar, Hindustan Times
It had been a very satisfactory and extremely good five years. My experience in these five years boosted my belief that there is no reason why India should remain in the category of developing countries. We have all the capabilities to be a developed country. When I came here, the situation was much worse than what I thought it would be. It was a terrible situation. I was new to this place and I also had to understand issues but as we started taking decisions, several worrying things came up.

‘Confident’ Modi all set for second term - Swapan Dasgupta, Pioneer
No Indian election, at least in these days of intensely competitive politics, is ever really won until the last vote is counted. Yet it is commentary on the state of play, some two weeks before the first round of voting, that some Opposition leaders are actually claiming that this will be last democratic election in India in the event Prime Minister Narendra Modi is re-elected to power. The suggestion is, needless to say, quite preposterous. It implies that India’s democratic Constitution is on the verge of being junked.

Death of an icon - Pioneer
Usually when a high-profile politician passes away, particularly in these times of over-sharing on social media, some people tend to reflect on the negative aspects of the person in assessing his legacy. Even if everyone might not share these anecdotes publicly, often gossip and innuendo make it to private conversations, particularly among reporters, who tailed that politician as part of their jobs. Manohar Parrikar, however, was not that kind of politician.

Does Priyanka have sanjeevini? - Kalyani Shankar, Pioneer
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has taken charge as Congress General Secretary responsible for eastern Uttar Pradesh last week. The state is not new to her as she has campaigned earlier also in some parts apart from looking after her mother Sonia Gandhi’s constituency Rae Bareilly and her brother Rahul Gandhi’s stronghold Amethi for years. Home to 80 Lok Sabha seats, UP sends the highest number of lawmakers to Parliament, making it a key electoral battleground.
