Maharashtra Local Body Elections 2017 : Saffron Tsunami


DSC01182

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           FEBRUARY 26, 2017           11.35 P.M.

Five years back in 2012, almost at the same time and also in the month of February, I wrote a blog about Saffron Juggernaut in Maharashtra municipal elections for 10 Municipal Corporations. B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] was victorious even then. But they won the elections in alliance with Shiv Sena.

This time again elections were declared for the same 10 Municipal Corporations. And I am writing about Saffron Tsunami.

2017-municipal-council-polls

But this time 25-year-old alliance with Shiv Sena broke and B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] went alone to test the waters. It happened because of hubris of Shiv Sena. B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] won May 2014 Lok Sabha elections and formed government in Delhi. Then in assembly elections in Maharashtra, both the parties went their separate ways. B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] wanted to fight half the seats i.e. 144. But Shiv Sena was not willing. Unable to accept new ground realities and unwilling to acknowledge resurgence of B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ], they were insisting on the old formula of Bala Saheb Thackeray and Pramod Mahajan days 171 : 117. [ 171 for Shiv Sena & 117 for B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] or a later day formula; 169 : 119 [ 169 for Shiv Sena & 119 for B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ].

B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] and Shiv Sena went their separate ways. Gamble paid off as B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] won 122 sears out of 288, only 23 short of majority mark. It increased its number of seats from 46 to 122. Shiv Sena won only 63 seats. But it also increased its tally. From 44 to 63, it got 19 more seats.

Not willing to accept any lessons from assembly elections 2014 drubbing, Shiv Sena was willing to give only 60 seats to B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] in B.M.C. [ Bruhan Mumbai Municipal Corporation ]. It was in fact 3 short of their previous tally. naturally B.J.P. refused and both the parties went their separate ways.

And as they say REST IS HISTORY.

B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] won 82 seats, 51 more from 31 seats won by it in 2012. Shiv Sena could win 84 seats, only 9 more than its 1012 tally of 75.

Apart from stunning, almost 3 fold increase in B.M.C. [ Bruhan Mumbai Municipal Corporation ] , B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] won 8 other Municipal Corporations. It snatched Pune & Pimpri-Chinchwad from N.C.P. [ Nationalist Congress Party ].

PUNE : 2017 –  98 //  2012 – 26 [ +72 ]

PIMPRI-CHINCHWAD : 2017 – 78 // 2012 – 3 [ + 75 ]

NASHIK : 2017 – 67 // 2012 – 14 [ + 53 ]

B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] gave bloody nose to I.N.C. [ Indian National Congress ] in Amaravati & Solapur, where it was the ruling party along with N.C.P. [ Nationalist Congress Party ].

AMARAVATI : 2017 – 45 // 2012 – 7 [ + 38 ]

SOLAPUR : 2017 – 47 // 2012 – 25 [ + 22 ]

In fact B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] got solo control of 2 Municipal Corporations; Akola & Ulhasnagar, which it previously ruled along with Shiv Sena.

AKOLA : 2017 – 48 // 2012 – 18 [ + 30 ]

ULHASNAGAR : 2017 – 32 // 2012 – 11 [ + 21 ]

B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] retained Nagpur with huge gains. It won 108 seat, 46 more seats than its previous tally of 62.

NAGPUR : 2017 – 108 // 2012 – 62 [ + 46 ]

2017-nagpur-municipal-corporation

Now the case of the 10th Municipal Corporation of Thane. Shiv Sena was successful to retain the Corporation. B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] failed to win. But it improved its tally. It won 23 seats, 15 more than the previous tally of 8.

All the above mentioned results show stunning and staggering growth of B.J.P. [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] in Maharashtra after Narendra Modi and Amit Shah era started in India and after Devendra Fadnavis era started in Maharashtra. Maharashtra B.J.P. president Rao Saheb Danve & Mumbai president Ashish Shelar also contributed immensely in this growth.

JNU : Hub of Anti-National Communist Traitors


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           FEBRUARY 14, 2016           11.40 P.M.

I am agitated. I am angry. I am furious.

Maqbool Bhat was hanged in 1984 , February 11, 1984. Indira Gandhi of Indian National Congress was the Prime Minister of India.

Afzal Guru was hanged in 2013 , February 09, 2013. Manmohan Singh of Indian National Congress was the Prime Minister of India.

Hanging of both these Kashmiri separatists, terrorists and Mir Jafars of modern-day India happened in Congress rule. Why communist of JNUSU  [ Jawahar Lal Nehru University Student Union ] raising it now? Why scion of Congress Rahul Gandhi is supporting this nefarious anti-national activity? Dude, it all happened when your grandmother Indira Gandhi and your factotum Manmohan Singh were ruling the country.

Let us have full details of the incident which happened in JNU campus on that shameful, fateful day.

—————————————————————————————————-

Poster of So-Called Cultural Event of JNU

‘The Country Without a Post Office’ event

 

A group of students organized an event on 9th February 2016, to mark the hanging of Afzal Guru, convicted for the 2001 Indian Parliament Attack. The name of the event is derived from the book of poetry titled ’The Country Without a Post Office’ by Agha Shahid Ali about a particularly violent period in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

The student organizers of the event had pasted posters across the campus inviting them to a “cultural evening of protest with poets, artists, singers, writers, students, intellectuals & cultural activists along with art exhibition & photo exhibition” on “9th Feb, Tuesday at Sabarmati Dhaba”, “Against the Brahminical ‘Collective Conscience’! Against the judicial killing of Afzal Guru & Maqbool Bhat! In solidarity with the struggle of the Kashmiri people for their democratic right to self determination…”.

The Joint Secretary of JNU Students’ Union Saurabh Kumar Sharma of the ABVP  wrote a letter to the Vice Chancellor M Jagdish Kumar, complaining that “these activities will disturb the peace & harmony of the campus” and requesting him to rusticate the involved students. It prompted the university administration to order cancellation of the march as they “feared” that it might “disrupt” peace on campus.

University authorities’ response

The University authorities disallowed this program, citing misrepresentation of the nature of the event. “We heard there was some cultural programme but later came to know it’s not a programme but a protest. We came to know about it through posters and no permission was sought by anyone. Thus, to keep calm and maintain peace in the campus, we cancelled it,” JNU Vice-Chancellor Prof Jagadesh Kumar said.

But the organisers went ahead with the programme despite the cancellation of the permission.

Controversial slogans raised

Some of the students raised Anti Indian slogans like :

“Kashmir ki azaadi tak jang rahegi” 

“Bharat ki barbadi tak jung rahegi”

“India go back”

“Pakistan Zindabad”

It translates to “Will fight this war until the independence of Kashmir, until the destruction of India”. Agitated over the issue, ABVP members gathered outside VC office and shouted slogans demanding expulsion of the students who contributed to the “anti-national” activity. The Anti-India sloganeering evoked strong emotions among general public as the students who were shouting the anti-India slogans are heavily subsidised in their education from tax payers money.

Students’ Union response

In his Facebook post dated 11 February 2016, JNU Students’ Union President Kanhaiya Kumar said “We will fight for democracy, for our constitution and the equal nation for all. In the name of Afzal Guru, ABVP is trying to divert all the issues to save the failure of the Central Govt.”

Arrests of student leaders

Acting on a complaint filed by BJP MP Maheish Girri, on 12 February 2016 the JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested by the Delhi Police. He was charged with sedition under section 124A of the Indian Penal Code, that allows for maximum punishment of life imprisonment.

In an amateur video shot a few hours before his arrest, Kanhaiya Kumar says (translated from Hindi): “We don’t need a patriotism certificate from the RSS”, he says. “We love this country. We fight for the 80% poor population of this country. We trust the constitution of this country. If anyone challenges the constitution, be it the Sanghis, it won’t be tolerated,”

Amnesty International criticized the arrest, calling it unwarranted. In a statement posted on Facebook, Amnesty International further added “The right to freedom of expression extends to speech that offends or disturbs. India’s sedition law is contrary to international standards on freedom of expression and must be repealed.”

A day later, seven more students were detained by the police.

The arrests soon snowballed into a major political controversy, with several leaders of opposition parties visiting the JNU campus in solidarity with the students protesting against the police crackdown. Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh reiterated that while the students would not be harassed, the “guilty would not be spared”. Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiran Rijiju said the JNU would not be allowed to become a hub for “anti-national” activities.

Enquiry Committee

The Statement of the Vice-Chancellor Jawaharlal Nehru University stated “Along with the Deans Committee, the University takes serious note of the incidents on campus on the evening of February 9th. A high-level enquiry committee has been constituted to investigate the matter and take appropriate action as necessary. While the JNU community upholds the right to free debate on campus, the University strongly condemns the use of the University as a platform for activities that violate the Constitution and the laws of the land. However, there could be aberrations where fringe sections misuse the freedom provided. While that problem would be appropriately addressed in this case, the University would also take steps to protect the academic atmosphere and the environment for vibrant discussion that JNU has always provided and stands for.”

“The permission for the programme was sought by giving incomplete information, so it is an act of indiscipline. A committee headed by the Chief Proctor will examine the footage of the event and speak to the witnesses. It is on basis of the report, the varsity will take appropriate action,” JNU Vice-Chancellor Jagdeesh Kumar said. Briefing about the “incomplete information”, the varsity Registrar Bhupinder Zutshi said, “There was nowhere mentioned in the permission request that the event will be on Afzal Guru, they just said that they wanted to organise a cultural event. How can any talk about disintegration of nation be national?”

Interim Report

A press note dated 12 February 2016 stated “Considering the seriousness of the incidents, and in order to enable a fair enquiry, the Committee has debarred eight students from academic activities with immediate effect during the pendency of the enquiry. However, to permit them represent their stand for a fair investigation, they will be allowed to stay in their respective hostels as a guest, during the period of the enquiry.”

JNU - H Q Ca3um0QUsAAPjmN

Jawaharlal Nehru University was established in 1969 by an act of parliament. It was named after Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first Prime Minister. G. Parthsarthi was the first vice-chancellor .

University is organised into ten schools, each of which has several centres, and four independent special centres:

  1. Centre for the Study of Law and Governance
  2. School of Arts and Aesthetics
  3. School of Biotechnology
  4. School of Computer and Systems Sciences
  5. School of Environmental Sciences
  6. School of International Studies: This is the oldest school. It predates the establishment of JNU as the Indian School of International Studies, which was set up in 1955.
  7. School of Language, Literature and Culture Studies
  8. School of Life Sciences: The school’s faculty and students publish extensively in reputed national and international journals: To date, SLS has to its credit over 2000 research publications.
  9. School of Physical Sciences
  10. School of Social Sciences: It is the largest school (in terms of the number of faculty members) in JNU with nine centres.

—————————————————————————————————-

I have always written about the anti-national , communist activities of traitors in the campuses. FTII was the first nut case after Narendra Modi government came into power. I wrote many blogs about their designs and non-academic activities. They have been tamed now.

And now comes JNU. “CULTURAL EVENT” is fine. DEBATE is okay. DISSENT is also acceptable. But shouting anti-India slogan is neither “CULTURAL” nor “DISSENT”.

“Kashmir ki azaadi tak jang rahegi” 

“Bharat ki barbadi tak jung rahegi”

“India go back”

“Pakistan Zindabad”

It is pure , unadulterated sedition. It is anti-national. It is secession. It should be condemned. But alas ! The traitor Communists are up in arms against Narendra Modi government. Rahul Gandhi has also joined them. Their pathological hatred for Narendra Modi should be curbed, curtailed and nipped immediately.

As I am writing this blog, I read that “Tum kitne Afzal maroge ; Har ghar se Afzal niklega” shouting brave hearts ( ? ) are on the run. They are absconding. Their facebook accounts deleted. Such is the bravery of these Communist pigs !

I denounced Communist traitors of  JNU , their supporters like D. Raja and Sitaram Yechuri and Rahul Gandhi [ An anti-national on probation ] . D. Raja , who is taking moral high ground , is particularly responsible because his daughter Aparajitha Raja participated in that infamous “Cultural Event” of JNU.

In the end I am quoting a Hindi poem sent to me by Shri Awnish Barnawal, a nationalist Hindu Swayamsevak from my home town Deoria, UP.

खतरे का उदघोष बजा है,रणभूमी तैयार करो,
सही वक्त है,चुन चुन करके,गद्दारों पर वार करो,

आतंकी दो चार मार कर हम खुशियों से फूल गए,
सरहद की चिंताओं में हम घर के भेदी भूल गए,

सरहद पर कांटे हैं,लेकिन घर के भीतर नागफनी,
जिनके हाथ मशाले सौंपी,वो करते है आगजनी,

ये भारत की बर्बादी के कसे कथानक लगते हैं,
सच तो है दहशतगर्दों से अधिक भयानक लगते हैं,

संविधान ने सौंप दिए हैं अश्त्र शस्त्र आज़ादी के,
शिक्षा के परिसर में नारे भारत की बर्बादी के,

अफज़ल पर तो छाती फटती देखी है बहुतेरों की,
मगर शहादत भूल गए हैं सियाचीन के शेरों की,

जिस अफज़ल ने संसद वाले हमले को अंजाम दिया,
जिस अफज़ल को न्यायालय ने आतंकी का नाम दिया,

उस अफज़ल की फांसी को बलिदान बताने निकले हैं,
और हमारे ही घर में हमको धमकाने निकले हैं,

बड़ी विदेशी साजिश के हथियार हमारी छाती पर,
भारत को घायल करते गद्दार हमारी छाती पर,

नाम कन्हैया रखने वाले,कंस हमारी छाती पर,
माल उड़ाते जयचंदों के वंश हमारी छाती पर,

लोकतंत्र का चुल्लू भर कर डूब मरो तुम पानी में,
भारत गाली सह जाता है खुद अपनी रजधानी में,

आज वतन को,खुद के पाले घड़ियालों से खतरा है,
बाहर के दुश्मन से ज्यादा घर वालो से खतरा है,

देशद्रोह के हमदर्दी हैं,तुच्छ सियासत करते है,
और वतन के गद्दारों की खुली वकालत करते है,

वोट बैंक की नदी विषैली,उसमे बहने वाले हैं,
आतंकी इशरत को अपनी बेटी कहने वाले हैं,

सावधान अब रहना होगा वामपंथ की चालों से,
बच कर रहना टोपी पहने ढोंगी मफलर वालों से,

राष्ट्रवाद के रखवालों मत सत्ता का उपभोग करो,
दिया देश ने तुम्हे पूर्ण,उस बहुमत का उपयोग करो,

हम भारत के आकाओं की ख़ामोशी से चौंके हैं,
एक शेर के रहते कैसे कुत्ते खुलकर भौंके हैं,

मन की बाते बंद करो,मत ज्ञान बाँटिये मोदी जी,
सबसे पहले गद्दारों की जीभ काटिये मोदी जी,

नहीं तुम्हारे बस में हो तो,हमें बोल दो मोदी जी,
संविधान से बंधे हमारे हाथ खोल दो मोदी जी,

अगर नही कुछ किया,समूचा भार उठाने वाले हैं,
हम भारत के बेटे भी हथियार उठाने वाले हैं,

Narendra Modi’s Foreign Policy – Japan


DSC01182

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           DECEMBER 13, 2015           10.10 P.M.

In the world of obfuscation of national frontiers, in the age of internet and social media reach, no country can remain isolated. It shouldn’t either. Foreign Policy is, thus the most important aspect of modern governance.

When Prime Minister Narendra Modi took oath of office, it was widely assumed and believed that due to lack of international exposure, he would rather falter if not fail in Foreign Policy. But Prime Minister Narendra Modi surprised his friends, critics and enemies alike. Today after almost 18 months, foreign policy initiatives have become his strongest achievement and accomplishment.

In my last blog I wrote about 3 epoch-making initiatives of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the realm of foreign policy. He initiated 3 forums to support India’s World View. During the U.N. Climate Change Conference 2015 in Paris [ COP 21 ] , he proposed a new forum of 120 nations named INTERNATIONAL SOLAR ALLIANCE [ I.S.A. ]

Thus the above mentioned 4 new forums bearing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s signature are there in the foreign policy domain and they will remain the biggest hallmark of India in the coming days. India’s 1st big initiative, Non-Aligned Movement [ N.A.M. ] , started by 1st Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru is, for all practical purposes, now dead. No other Prime Minister after that could usher anything worthwhile. So it is right to say that in the realm of Foreign Policy Narendra Modi is the 2nd most successful Prime Minister of India. He is 2nd to Jawahar Lal Nehru only technically. In fact he is 2nd to none.

4 most successful initiatives of Prime Minister Narendra Modi till date :

1 – Forum for India-Pacific Islands cooperation [ F.I.P.I.C. ]

2 – Indian Ocean Outreach Programme [ I.O.O.P. ]

3 – India-Africa Forum Summit [ I.A.F.S. ]

4 – International Solar Alliance [ I.S.A. ]

 

Foreign Policy successes, apart from multilateral forums,  is also measured in bilateral terms. Prime Minister Narendra Modi scores in this arena also.

Till date Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made 30 foreign trips. He has made 1 visit each to 26 countries. They are : Australia, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brazil, Canada, China, Fiji, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mongolia, Myanmar, Russia, Seychelles, Sri Lanka, South Korea, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, UAE, UK & Uzbekistan.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi made 2 visits each to : France, Nepal, Singapore & USA.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi participated in following multilateral meetings also. They are : BRICS [ Fortaleza & Ufa ] / G-20 [ Brisbane & Antalya ] / ASEAN [ Naypyidaw & Kuala Lumpur ] / SCO [ Dushambe & Ufa ] / IBSA [ New Delhi ] / INDIA-AFRICA FORUM [ New Delhi ] / SAARC [ Kathmandu ] .

He has developed unique and intimate relationships with almost all the world leaders. Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe is one of them.

Shinzo Abe came to India on a 3 day official visit on December 11, 2015. This visit, apart from clinching of several deals and contracts, will always be remembered for GANGA AARTI in Varanasi.

Good Luck Bihar ! You Got What You Wanted !!


DSC01182

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           NOVEMBER 29, 2015           06.35 P.M.

3

As I write this blog, I am saddened and pained. I was going through the list of the ministers of Nitish Kumar government in Bihar. Out of 29 ministers, only 2 ; Chandrika Rai [ Minister of Transport ] is post-graduate and Ram Vichar Rai [ Minister of Agriculture ] is graduate. Alok Mehta [ Minister of Cooperative Movement ] is still doing his graduation.

Apart from above mentioned 3, rest 26 are below 12th pass. Shiv Chandra Ram [ Minister of Art & Culture ] is illiterate.

This is the cabinet of Nitish Kumar [ SUSHASAN BABU ] in Bihar. And this in 2015. The land of Nalanda University, the land of Chanakya & Chandragupta, the land of Mauryan empire, the land of Gautam Buddha and the land of Ashok the Great has degenerated to this level.

In democracy you get the government you deserve and desire. So for this state of affairs, no one is to be blamed but the people of Bihar. So good luck Bihar! You chose the government of your choice and liking.

I am ashamed and posting the list of ministers in Hindi so that foreigners cannot read and they don’t have negative thoughts about Resurgent India of 2015 under Narendra Modi.

BJP’s Deepawali Crackers in Kerala


DSC01182

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           NOVEMBER 08, 2015           09.00 P.M.

 

1

In bipolar KERALA politics, BJP is yet to open an account in Lok Sabha or Vidhan Sabha. But people of KERALA this time delivered a severe jolt to the ruling dispensation United Democratic Front [ UDF ] led by Congress in the Local Body Elections. The only opposition Left Democratic Front [ LDF ] led by CPM emerged winner. But the Bharatiya Janata Party [ BJP ] made strong inroads and sent shivers down the spine of the ruling dispensation and the opposition.

KERALA is bipolar state. UDF, Congress led front and LDF, CPM led front generally rule the state one after another. But the result of Local Body Elections 2015 show that Bharatiya Janata Party improved its seats in Village / Block / District Panchayats and Municipalities / Corporations of KERALA.

BJP had alliance with Sree Narayan Dharma Paripalana Yogam [ SNDP Yogam ]. This alliance with backward caste helped BJP.

———————————————————————

City Municipal Corporations

==================================

TOTAL Corporations : 6

CPM [ LDF ] : 2

BJP : 2 [ Largest Party / Short of Majority ]

Congress [ UDF ] : 1

Hung : 1

BJP became main opposition in THIRUANANTHAPURAM Corporation. 34 Seats in 2015 / 6 Seats in 2010 [ CPM : 42 / BJP : 34 / Congress 21 ] BJP 17 short of majority.

BJP became biggest party in PALAKKAD Corporation. It is 3 short of majority. 24 Seats in 2015 / 15 Seats in 2010 [ BJP : 24 / Congress 16 / CPM 6 / Others 6

BJP became major opposition in THODUPUZHA / THANUR / THRIPUNITHURA Corporations

BJP : Total 51 Seats in 2015 / 9 Seats in 2010 [ + 42 ]

BJP : Total 1242 Wards in 2015 / 480 Wards In 2012 [ + 762 ]

———————————————————————

City Municipalities

============================

TOTAL Municipalities : 87

CPM [ LDF ] : 44

Congress [ UDF ] : 41

BJP : 1

Hung : 1

BJP : Total Seats 236 in 2015 / 79 Seats in 2010 /

———————————————————————

Gram Panchayat

==========================

TOTAL Panchayat : 941

CPM [ LDF ] : 551

Congress [ UDF ] : 362

BJP : 14

Others : 14

BJP : 933 Seats in 2015 / 450 in 2010 [ + 483 ]

Some of these figures are not big compared to the victory figures of CPM led Left Democratic Front. But one has to remember that state of KERALA is a bipolar state. BJP is yet to open account in Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha. Therefore, in my opinion, these results as very significant. If BJP could perform so impressively in Local Body Elections, then its performance in coming Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha would certainly be epoch-making.

BJP In Maharashtra Municipal Elections 2015


DSC01182

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           NOVEMBER 07, 2015           11.45 P.M.

India Under Modi in 2014 - 2015

India Under Modi in 2014 – 2015

I have to frequently write about all the election victories of Bharatiya Janata Party led by Narendra Modi because national media, print and electronic both, sometimes ignore the results of the small and remote states and union territories.

Even if they write about the victories of BJP in bigger states, they berate BJP and put misleading headlines. Recent local body elections in MAHARASHTRA of KDMC , Kalyan – Dombivli Municipal Corporation and KMC , Kolhapur Municipal Corporation are the best examples of biased media reporting.

BJP contested the KDMC elections alone and got 48 seats [ 42 + 6 Independents ] . It had only 9 seats in 2010. It is a 5 fold gain. But according to media, Congress is on the way to revival and Shiv Sena edged the BJP. Shiv Sena also claimed that we are the “BAAP” in Maharashtra politics. Shiv Sena is up 21 and BJP is up 39 from the 2010 tally. Shiv Sena has got only 4 more seats compared to BJP. Now who is the “BAAP”? Congress got 4 seats and is down 11 seats from 2010. How could KDMC election be called a revival? BJP is the biggest gainer but according to media it is not important.

In Kolhapur also BJP’s gain is 8 times more. It contested elections with a local outfit Tararani Aghadi and not with Shiv Sena. BJP got 4 in 2010. In 2015 it got 32 along with Tararani Aghadi. Shiv Sena got a paltry 4 seats, up 1 from 2010 but it claims to the “BAAP” of Maharashtra politics. Congress is down 4 and NCP is down 14 from their 2010 tally. But for media it is Congress’s revival and its a wake up call for BJP.

Here is the seat tally of KDMC 2015 & KMC 2015 Polls :

 

Kalyan-Dombivali Municipal Corporation ( KDMC ) Elections

================================================

TOTAL SEATS : 122 / Half Way Mark : 62

Shiv Sena : 52 / In 2010 : 31 [ + 21 ]

Baratiya Janata Party : 48 / In 2010 : 9 [ + 39 ]

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena : 9 / In 2010 : 27 [ – 18 ]

Congress : 4 / In 2010 : 15 [ – 11 ]

NCP : 2 / In 2010 : 14 [ – 12 ]

All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen : 1

Bahujan Samajwadi Party : 1

Independents : 5 / In 2010 : 13 [ – 8 ]

 

Kolhapur Municipal Corporation ( KMC ) Elections

============================================

TOTAL SEATS : 81 / Half Way Mark : 42

BJP + Tararani Aghadi : 32 / In 2010 : 4 [ + 28 ]

Congress : 27 / In 2010 : 31 [ – 4 ]

NCP : 15 / In 2010 : 29 [ – 14 ]

Shiv Sena : 4 / In 2010 : 3 [ + 1 ]

Independents : 3 / In 2010 : 10 [ – 7 ]

 

59 Semi Urban Local Bodies / Nagar Panchayat Elections

================================================

BJP : 15 local bodies

Congress : 14 local bodies

NCP : 13 local bodies

Shiv Sena : 6 local bodies.

 

Nagar Panchayat Elections

============================

The BJP came 1st, the Congress emerged 2nd, the NCP stood a close third, the Shiv Sena a distant fourth, while the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena was virtually erased in the results of elections to 59 local bodies which were announced here on Monday, November 02, 2015. Even BSP and CPM are individually ahead of MNS. And combined strength of local parties and independents are almost close to Shiv Sena. BJP is 1st and got more than double seats compared to Shiv Sena. Can Shiv Sena still thinks that it is “BAAP” in Maharashtra politics?

Bharatiya Janata Party : 254 Seats

Congress : 233 Seats

Nationalist Congress Party : 196 Seats

Shiv Sena : 123 Seats

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena : 2 Seats

Bahujan Samaj Party : 7 Seats

CPI-M : 3 seats

Local Parties : 46

Independents : 56 Seats

BJP scored big in the Local Body Election 2015. It hardly matters even if media ignores it. While I am about to post this blog news is coming that Shiv Sena and BJP are joining hands in KDMC and they are set to rule KDMC jointly. It is heartening. Here I am listing all the elections held since the Lok Sabha victory of Narendra Modi. ———————————————————————

Kerala Local Body Elections and Bihar Assembly elections are going to be announced tomorrow morning. Exit Polls are predicting big victory for BJP. I hope that BJP scores big in the coming Kerala and Bihar elections also. It would be a definite step towards Congress-Mukt-Bharat.

3rd India – Africa Forum Summit 2015


DSC01182

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 31, 2015           10.30 P.M.

In my previous blog about the foreign policy initiatives and achievements of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, I wrote about his 3 unique and epoch-making initiatives. They are :

1 – Forum for India-Pacific Islands cooperation [ FIPIC ]

2 – Indian Ocean Outreach Programme [ IOOP ]

3 – India-Africa Forum Summit [ IAFS ]

In that blog I particularly wrote about his first initiative; FIPIC. But briefly, I also wrote about India Africa Forum Summit, IAFS . I wrote that technically, though India Africa Forum Summit, IAFS was started in 2008 by previous UPA government but in all probability, I consider it to be Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s initiative. Here are the reasons for my thinking.

First IAFS was held in 2008 from April 4 – 8 in New Delhi. It was attended by only 14 Heads of State / Government.

Second IAFS was attended by 15 Heads of State / Government. One more than the previous one. It was held in Adis Ababa, Ethiopia from 21 – 25 May, 2011.

Third IAFS was held in New Delhi from 26 – 29 October, 2015. It was attended by 51 of the 54 countries. 41 Heads of State / Government participated and 10 remaining countries were represented by high power delegations. Thus the total number of countries attending 3rd India-Africa Forum Summit 2015 comes to 51. Only 3 countries could not attend. Singapore and UAE attended the summit as observers. Thus the total number of countries attending the summit comes to 53.

It is historic. It is momentous and unprecedented. It is epoch-making. 3rd India Africa Forum Summit 2015 is the 2nd largest congregation of Heads of State / Government ever held in India. 2 Kings , 26 Presidents , 6 Vice Presidents and 7 Prime Ministers of 41 African Countries , the President of the African Union, 10 African countries represented by high power delegations along with Singapore and UAE as observers attended this 3rd India-Africa Forum Summit. Total number comes to 53.

Now few facts about the history of summits involving African nations.

1 – JAPAN : Japan was the 1st country to hold regular summits with African nations since 1993. It is once-every-five-years summit and is always held in Japan.

It will now be once-every-three-years summit.

2 – CHINA : China was the second nation to hold summit with African nations since 2000. Like Japan, it is also once-every-three-years summit.

3 – THE EUROPEAN UNION : The European Union started holding summit with African nations since 2004. It is also once-every-three-years summit.

4 – INDIA : We are the 4th country and started our summit in 2008. The India-Africa Forum Summit will be once-in-a-five-years summit as proposed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

5 – UNITED STATES OF AMERICA : The US is the 5th and last country to hold such summit. She started holding the summit since 2014. It was the biggest till date as leaders of 35 African countries attended the summit.

It is sad and deplorable that a foreign policy initiative of such magnitude and gigantic proportions was largely neglected by national media, print and electronic both. [ Hindustan Times is perhaps the only exception. ] It is the 2nd biggest and largest diplomatic event ever hosted by India. Let me tell about 2 other such big events held during Indira Gandhi’s regime.

1 – NON ALIGNED MOVEMENT [ NAM ] :

The 7th NAM Summit was held from 7 – 12 March, 1983 in New Delhi. Participating countries 140.

2 – COMMONWEALTH HEADS OF GOVERNMENT [ CHOGM ] :

The 7th CHOGM Summit was held from 23 – 29 November, 1983 in New Delhi. Participating countries 42.

Thus 32 years after hugely successful 7th NAM Summit 1983 , the 3rd India Africa Forum Summit 2015 is the 2nd largest congregation of Heads of State / Government ever held in India. I repeat : 2 Kings , 26 Presidents , 6 Vice Presidents and 7 Prime Ministers of 41 African Countries , the President of the African Union, 10 African countries represented by high power delegations along with Singapore and UAE as observers attended this 3rd India-Africa Forum Summit. Total number comes to 53.

But it was ignored by the media and the cause is animosity towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It is a sad state of affair in our country. When it comes to Modi, even the pretension of balance is dropped and discarded. The bias is obvious and open, the daggers are drawn and the bellicose media is waiting for the kill. Alas!!

But history will not be cruel. It will be kind and judge this event in a proper light and will apply unbiased yardsticks. Years after 2015, when Narendra Modi will not be around, when the dust will settle down and the bias will evaporate and the historian will sit down to chronicle the Narendra Modi era of India, the 3rd India Africa Forum Summit 2015  will be seen and will be mentioned in a different way.

So over to the future with no regrets.
