NDA the front-runner, BJP to emerge the largest party
Congress faces rout in home turf

By R Balashankar

THE Indian voter has always been bountiful to the underdog. He hates to miss an opportunity to punish the haughty establishment that takes him for granted. He is not enticed or misled by propaganda, which money can buy. The Congress and its track-II campaigners in the media predicted an easy win for the incumbents even before the first vote was cast. After three rounds of the Lok Sabha poll it is an entirely different story.

At Rs. 35 for a kilo of rice, Rs. 30 for a kilo of sugar, Rs. 25 for wheat flour, Rs. 80 for pulses, edible oil at Rs. 120 per litre, and vegetable items at Rs 40 to 80 for a kilo, depending on ones taste, it is not easy for the ruling party to win an election. more >

PM has buckled under Sonia Gandhi?s pressure
By LK Advani

Indian Multinational Congress
By Dr. Jay Dubashi

THE Congress party is sinking! Long live the Congress! I am, of course, referring to Indian National Congress, the venerable 125-year old institution now on its death-bed. The question, however, remains: did it just collapse, or was it hammered, as you destroy an old beast who refuses to lie down and breathe his last? more >

Congress Bureau of Investigation

CONGRESS has built institutions, used them to its advantage whenever it chose and destroyed them whenever it found them inconvenient. But for the interregnum of the Janata Party in 1977, VP Singh government in 1989 and the NDA in 1998, Indian democracy would have taken a different shape, had Congress been in power uninterrupted. Perhaps, we would have been a banana republic. more >

The CBI strategy is to help the Italian?Arun Jaitley

THE CBI under advice from the Attorney General of India has withdrawn the Red Corner Notice against Ottavio Quattrocchi, an accused in the Bofors bribery case. This action of the CBI is clearly at the behest of the political establishment and at the cost of its own credibility. more >

What they teach in madrasas
By CK Mohan

THE decision of the Congress-UPA government to make madrasa education equivalent to C.B.S.E, was strangely taken just after it was officially reported to it, about the incident in which some Muslim youths of Kerala, who were killed in an encounter with the Indian security forces in Kashmir, actually belonged to a group, that went to the madrasas of Hydrabad and Ahmedabad, for higher studies in religious education. more >

Western duplicity:
?KEN WESTMORELAND, [email protected]

An Indian response (Organiser, 26-4-2009); Dear Dr Kunal Ghosh, why don?t you stick to commenting on matters about which you are well informed, such as aeronautics, rather than those about which you are totally ignorant, such as East Timor? I find it utterly pathetic that you should seek to equate support for East Timor?s struggle for self-determination as being ?Western-Christianity-Judaism-Kinship?. more >
