    Ashutosh
    It is difficult for Arvind Kejriwal to digest the fact that Rahul Gandhi has emerged like a phoenix from the ashes and now he seems to be the pivot of opposition unity.

  • Opinion: Tharoor A Good Hindu, TV Anchors Wrongly Target Him
    Ashutosh
    Why is there such a hullaballoo over Shashi Tharoor's statement? What did he say that has the BJP/RSS so publicly pained? Why are TV channels going bonkers trying to paint Shashi Tharoor anti-Hindu?

    Ashutosh
    Atal-ji for me will remain the quintessential gentleman-politician, a man whose every inch was rooted in Indian-ness. He was the Ajatshatru of Indian politics.

    Ashutosh
    Elections 2019 will be fought on the issue of whatModi has done since 2014. Since Modi's delivery list is not encouraging enough, therefore the strategy is to paint the Congress and the Opposition black. Doesn't exactly reek of confidence.
