Tonight on The Buck Stops Here:
"No place for merit": Vasan's attack on Rahul Gandhi's coterie?
After quitting Congress, former Union minister GK Vasan tells NDTV that the leadership hasn't paid any special attention to the party unit in Tamil Nadu even though Congress hasn't been in power in the state for the last 48 years. He says the Congress needs to be strengthened to compete with the Dravidian parties and that the cadres want the Kamraj plan back.
Dynasty in the dumps: Grand old party in son-set years?
As Tamil Nadu Congress stalwart GK Vasan quits party, we debate: is the revolt within the party a revolt against Rahul Gandhi and will Vasan's exit open the floodgates of rebellion against him?

Former separatist leader praises Modi: "PM a man of ideas"
Separatist-turned-politician Sajjad Lone speaks to NDTV about his meeting with BJP general secretary Ram Madhav and why he feels BJP is a better option for alliance than Congress. He tells NDTV that no Congress leader ever wanted to speak to him and "if another national party comes and shows respect, the least we can do is replicate that respect." He says that people in Jammu and Kashmir feel that PM Modi is a man of ideas and knows how to get things done.
