Preventing Modi to become PM, opposing BJP and breaking NDA

 

Vedaprakash

 

The anti-Modi rhetoric of old partners of NDA: All most all non-BJP parties except the new allies have started their chorus of “Preventing Modi to become PM, opposing BJP and breaking NDA” one way or the other. The moment Narendra Modi was announced as the PM candidate for BJP, the first party to break from the NDA alliance was JD(S) with the rising rhetoric pitch of Nitish Kumar against Modi. Ironically, he was with the NDA for 17 years and appreciated Modi also. He was suggesting that he might accept L. K. Advani as the PM candidate but not Modi, as he would not be accepted by the secular partners. But, the BJP proceeded with the candidature of Modi, in spite of the fact that even Advani did not like it earlier, but had to accept.

 

Modi – polarizing or taking NDA to win: Then suggestions started circulating that Modi would dominate the scene till NDA gets majority and then Advani would be made PM so that NDA would get maximum majority. Such idea was nurtured in the TV debates usually carried on with the selected ideologues. Even Chandangupta was seen accepting such proportion in such forced debates. That is Modi would be exploited for attracting new voters, youth and polarize, thereby, some Muslim votes also, but if enough seats are won, then Advani would be declared as PM, so that through after poll alliance, more parties could be brought into NDA.

 

Mission 272+ and the reality: Some media carried on Narendra Modi’s ‘Mission 272+’ as follows[1]:

 

  1. As Modi is likely to focus on Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh, which account for 210 Lok Sabha seats and if BJP could win more seats that what they had won a paltry 31 seats out of 210 in 2009, then, they ould in a better position. Thus, BJP has to perform hard and opinion polls predict that the BJP is likely to grab at least 100 seats from these areas.

 

  1. Of course, Modi could do well in Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Delhi and Karnataka, which account for 138 members to the Lok Sabha. Here, as BJP is directly pitted against the Congress in most of the seats it could have an edge over Congress.

 

  1. Modi has already joined the ranks of Jyoti Basu, Mohanlal Sukhadia, Sheila Dikshit and Naveen Patnaik in leading his party to victory in a state three times in a row.  In 2014, the combined force of AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa and BJD chief Naveen Patnaik may influence Modi’s fortunes a lot. It is now for the smaller parties to decide which way to go, and to settle their priorities, local or national. Tamil Nadu, Odhisha, Punjab, Haryana, Assam and the North-East account for 118 LS seats. Modi already has a rapport with J Jayalalithaa and Purno Sangma, while a large section of BJD is also reportedly keen to join the NDA.

 

  1. Many opinion polls have already predicted a positive swing for the BJP in Uttar Pradesh and the elevation of master strategist Amit Shah has become an icing on the cake. There is one school of thought that argues that the party is waiting for an opportune time to flag Modi’s caste antecedent but it is caught in its usual dilemma of whether a casteist projection would conflict with his popular image as a development and good governance votary.

 

  1. Modi cautioned that unless the BJP fine-tuned its booth management, it could end up with more misses than hits. The campaign panel chief wants that the Delhi brass step out of their confines, visit each state, sit with the leaders and office-bearers, hold detailed discussions and then come up with a state-specific draft. It is now-or-never scenario for the BJP.

 

The BJP political masters started their campaign with confidence, of course, with strategy. They moved their coins attracting partners step by step, as they knew very well about the counter-attack of their opponents. Particularly, the AAP posed a spoiler and evidently aiding and abetting the corrupt congress. Unlike other parties BJP has to fight the battle within and outside also due to changes envisaged. Thus, the regional mathematics was learned ahead before declaring anything openly. Through mediators, BJP approached small but strong regional players in mobilizing numbers[2].

 

BJP is gaining in south India again: Contrary to the political predictions and secular-communal debates etc., more regional parties have been attracted to either Modi or BJP. Definitely, in Tamilnadu it scored a victory by roping up alliance with DMDK, MDMK, PMK andIJK[3]. In AP, TDP and others are ready to join NDA and because of the Telengana tangle, they have been calculative about the seats and the sentiments of Telugu people. Even, in Kerala, it is reported that the percentage of BJP is increasing and in Trivandrum, it could create some wonders. Thus, suddenly media starts realizing that Modi is helping NDA to win alliance from south[4] to north! When Dravidian parties other than DMK and AIADMK are accepting Modi, why not others is the mute question.

 

The Comedy play of AAP: After the resignation of AAP on Feb.14, 2014, the political scenario was clear with the major parties facing battle straight. However, the regional parties posed threat both to UPA and NDA and now with the intrusion of AAP in the north. Though AAP posed as anti-corruption crusader, its short-lived 49 days rule exposed the AAP-Cong tactful alliance. AAP adopted hot and cool policy with Congress, but very aggressive towards BJP, thus, creating a picture that it is supporting Congress indirectly. After losing power, it starts attacking BJP more and almost forgetting the list of multi-crore scams. Aravind Kejariwal was just creating nuisance to BJP by going to Gujarat and contesting from Varanasi.

 

The media game-plan of Instigating Muslims against Muslims: The media experts went on approaching Muslim leaders of all parties getting their expressed opinion that they would accept Modi as the PM candidate, as he was responsible for the 2002 riots. This point is harped upon again and again by the TV-channel pundits to corner the BJP spokesman. It is even suggested that if Modi apologize for 2002 riots, Muslims might turn towards him. Rajnath was reportedly apologized for that and it was expected that Modi would follow the suit. But immediately, the Maualanas were interviewed and opinion was created that even if Mody apologize, they would not vote for Modi.

 

Inconsistency of the Muslim leaders towards Modi: Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind general secretary Maulana Mehmood Madani told, “In Gujarat, Jamiat workers on the ground have told me that in several Assembly segments, Muslims voted for Modi. There is a perceptible change of heart and circumstances are different now. I agree the times are changing. Muslims in Gujarat are economically better off than in several states which have so-called secular governments in power,” he told Rahul Kanwal in an exclusive interview on Seedhi Baat[5]. However, later clarified that he declined to either reject or endorse Modi’s possible candidature as Prime Minister[6]. In October 2012, as he called Modi a “tyrant”, the BJP tried to ban him to enter Gujarat[7].

 

Azam Khan type of Anti-Modism: On 28-01-2014, Azam Khan alarmed that there was a big conspiracy going on to divide Muslims … If Muslims were divided, Narendra Modi would form the next government (at the Centre) and therefore they have to remain united, he said while addressing a conference of madrassa managers and principals in Lucknow[8]. As usual he called Modi “murderer”. Many times, his angry was turned towards Amit Shah also. Harping upon the 2002 riots, it is claimed that Muslims would never forgive Modi and vote for him and therefore, BJP cannot get the votes of Muslims.

 

The tirade of Mayavati against Modi: On 21-02-2014, Mayawati told that they will put their “entire strength to prevent Narendra Modi from becoming the Prime Minister. It is in interest of the country to prevent the BJP from coming to power (in the next elections),” Ms. Mayawati told reporters outside Parliament[9]. She claimed that minority community members were apprehensive about  Modi. “If Modi wins, it will give a boost to the communal forces in the country,” the BSP supremo said, adding BJP is not trustworthy as “it says something and does something else”. But she was with BJP in forming government in UP twice.

 

AAP, SP and others turning against Modi: On 16-03-2014, BJP leader and Lok Sabha MP  from Hamirpur (Himachal Pradesh) Anurag Thakur on Sunday criticized Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal for leading an unruly party and helping Congress in its effort to stop Narendra Modi from becoming the Prime Minister[10]. On 31-03-2014, Modi himself accused that Congress was conspiring to prevent him from becoming PM[11]. On the same day, Mulayam asserted that “SP will not let BJP succeeded in Lok Sabha polls and make Narendra Modi the next PM. If they (BJP) get defeated in Uttar Pradesh, Modi will never become PM,” Asking Muslims to remain alert, he said BJP and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) had close relationship and Congress’ role was also suspicious as far as providing facilities to Muslim community was concerned[12].

 

Non-BJP parties dictating about the PM candidate: Ironically, the non-BJP parties were suggesting their choice of Prime Minister candidate, if they wanted to be with NDA. Shiv Sena was suggesting that Sushma Swaraj would be an ideal choice of PM. Then it was changed to suggest that Sushma Swaraj might be better choice, yet some suggested Arun Jaitely. But, on 22-03-2014 Prakash Sigh Badal unwittingly declared that Arun Jaitely would be the Deputy PM[13]. Recently also, one BJP minister of MP said that Sushma could be the next PM[14]. On 25-03-2014, Even Digvijay of Congress also suggested this[15], when they never declared who was their PM candidate. Of course, Mulayam Singh, Mamta Banerjee have been telling that they would not allow Modi to become PM.

 

Ex-MPs, MLAs of Congress and other parties joining BJP: In spite of the domination of Modi, definitely, some regional parties started aligning with BJP forming partners of NDA. Thus, the apprehension made earlier that except Akali Dal all others are going away from NDA proves wrong. Not only that, even former ministers, MPs, MLAs of other parties like Congress, JD (S) etc have started joining BJP. One way, it has become headache for BJP, as they were not only criticizing Modi with harsh language or hate-speech, some of them have been of tainted category. And the BJP has to pay heavy price, if they come to power.

 

BJP is different, Modi is different – new argument of the media: Then started the argument that BJP has become Modi-party, one-man party and no other has any say in BJP. This is the media-floated argument put forward now, but there are few takers. The politicians know very well who is controlling whom and how the parties, leaders of parties and others work and function at the time of winning and losing elections. But why the media play doublegame against BJP is not known. At one side, they project that BJP / NDA has been gaining vote %, Modi the favourite PM and so on , on the other side, they also accuse that BJP is sticking to the communal agenda, Amit Shah is doing that in UP and so on.

 

Modi could win and get votes from all: The conservative but posed as progressive media also slowly accepted the Modi-factor accepted that there would be a change in voting pattern with reversals also. Thus, “the Hindu” (March 21.2014) reported[16], “A large-scale attitudinal survey shows that the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance has gained significantly across most parts of the country as well as among most social groups. The only exceptions are the Scheduled Tribes and Muslims.” Thus, finally, the media has to accept that Modi would be acceptable to all and people would vote for him.

Politics, Cricket, Share market and Gambling in India

May 12, 2012

Politics, Cricket, Share market and Gambling in India

Vedaprakash

This, I posted in www.indiainrweacts.com and other forums, but missing. In fact, the www.indiainrweacts.com has removed / blacked out all my postings. Now, I started salvaging or taking out from internet, backup and other sources, as the same pattern is found even today in 2012. Actually, today I searched for my article on “Sex, Drugs, and Cricket” the nexus etc., but I came across this. Therefore, I am posting in www.vedaprakash.wordpress.com withlout any changes.

 

Indian politics, cricket and gambling: Now a new ugly face of Indian politics having nexus with gambling and underworld is revealed in the recent betting on political parties and the PMs. The close links of Sharad Pawar with cricket mafia and sugar dons and that of Manmohan Singh with bookies and financial gamblers are coming out. The heavy investment in shares and manipulation of Indian economy and the sudden discussion about black money investment in Swiss banks, the BJP’s accusation and the Congress denial etc., are to be understood in the backdrop. The newspapers and TV-channels have started unfolding the gambling and betting of mafia-bookies and changing their so-called “the most-scientific exit-polls”[1].

Psephologists and bookies: The nexus between so-called psephologists and bookies are exposed in the Indian elections[2]. Psephologist or the professionals engaged in studying the election patterns and deviations. They make use of tools like past election’s facts and figures and public opinion polls to arrive at a conclusion. Their scope of job mainly encompasses analysis of aspects like trends in voting, swings in votes; number of votes polled or percentage of total votes polled translating into the number of seats in the government. They also try to find out the answers of questions like how much of percent swing in the votes may lead to change in the government. Hence Psephologists are expected to play a constructive role in any democratic set up, but in India, they are aiding and abetting with the punters, gamblers, underworld dons and spoiling the democracy through the anti-Indian media.

The myth of psephology in the “five-phased elections”: The five-phased polls spreading over a month from April 14 to May 13 2009 has been a political farce, cleverly manipulated by the Congress and its slave Election Commission[3]. When Gopalswamy found, he was not only kicked out immediately, but replaced with three “chamchas” under the guise of secularism. What is the right margin of error to employ?

The experts discuss about errors in the sampling as follows: The most common approach is to use a margin such that in 19 polls out of 20, the gap between the real figure and the poll estimate will be smaller than the sampling error. If the poll samples 1000 people, its sampling error will be 3 per cent either way. With a sample of 2000, the sampling error falls to plus or minus 2.2 per cent. The sampling error is a factor when comparing two polls is larger still, since both polls have their margins of error. Changes in polls from one week to another are even more error-prone than the polls themselves., thus when the polls are phased with gaps and such periods are subjected to heavy propagandas leashed out through media and the ruling Congress misusing the official machineries, where is the political democracy or democratic polity in India?

Gamblers are powerful than voters in choosing PM or the government of their choice: The Indians have been consistently voting to BJP and Congress for the last five general elections. It has been the Congress aiding and abetting with other parties preventing BJP to rule. They used the “dummies” — V. P. Singh, Deve Gowda, I. K. Gujaral. Chandrasekhar and so on and therefore, the lust for becoming a PM has been haunting and daunting the small players or great spoilers and they start bargains with such “devil” sitting in their minds. They want to a PM just for a day, a week, a month or a year — that is all. They are not worried about the so-called ideologies, principles, and
people. Such political lust is varied only in gradation.

Note the media’s discussion on the choice of PMs:

1.  First, they discussed about the powerful and weak PMs.

2.  Instead of “two”, they tried to pit more against the “two”.

3.  The comparison was stretched from “two” to “three” to “four”.

4.  Ultimately, the discussion has been stooped down to the level of who is the worst, horrible and nasty PM.

The trend of elections from 1984 to 2009: In 1984, Advani emerged as PM and the American papers too projected him so. But unfortunately, Indira Gandhi was assassinated and the Congress swept the pools with the Rajiv Gandhi becoming a PM. However, Rajiv was plagued with corruption and thus, in 1989 V. P., Singh and Chandrasekhar were made PMs. However, after the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi in 1991, P. V. Narasinha Rao became PM.

The entering of Sonia Gandhi into politics and the rise of BJP coincided and the anti-Congress politicians tried to support BJP. However, the rise of BJP during the period 1991 to 1998 cannot be denied. Only fear of the rise of BJP started the “others” accusing BJP as “communal”, in such ploy, the Congress happily joined without any shame, because, other than Congress, there cannot be any other most-communal party in India, perhaps only next to IUML, MIM, Kerala Congress etc. However, using such secular- communal card, they have been trying to keep BJP out.

Keeping BJP out is anti-Indian undemocratic polity[4]: Any impartial observer, analyst and even common Indian can notice, why all other parties have been ganged up against BJP preventing it from rule? When their number of MPs have been increasing (2 to 181), their period of reign has been increasing (13 days to 13 months to five years), popularity increasing and almost all other parties have aligned with BJP in the pre-poll and post-poll alliances, how other political parties could isolate BJP as communal and they are secular? There is totally wrong in such propaganda being carried out. However, it is stranger to note that BJP has not been pointing out such lacuna, when opportunity came recently in the media many times. In the speeches of Divijaya Singh, Praful Patel, Kapil Sibal, Niteshkumar and others, the point was clearly brought out, but the BJP has failed to take it.

Note: Here, it is not that the “others” are becoming majority to rule India, as they have no common ideologies, but in fact, mostly, they have been the communal, secessionist, anti-National[5], communist and other forces acting against India and Indian interests. Therefore, it is unfortunate that Congress has been supporting such forces and that is why the Communists are emboldened to get ambition of rule India![6].

1% cannot be the difference between Advani and Manmohan: Definitely, when Advani was emerging a powerful PM, the Congress and the media started manipulation. Now the gamblers have joined after psephologists. CNN-IBN psephologist was making blunder after blunder by giving 16% to Advani, 15% to Manmohan etc., as “popular / acceptable PM”. It is not known how the difference could be only one percent. As the groups start realigning and just expecting the real figures, definitely, they are afraid and launched their attack through gamblers picked up by the media and hence the nexus is proved beyond doubt.

If the gamblers, bookies and brokers are powerful than voters, than such politicians could be hanged instead of appreciated as “economic experts” and so on. That behind Manmohan Singh such a devil, monster and evil forces are acting to spoil Indians, then Indians should hang such monsters, instead of placing them on the ruling thrones. In satta market, UPA return near certain[7]: With just a few hours left for declaration of the final results of the 15th Lok Sabha elections, punters in the capital are still giving an edge to the ruling Congress-led UPA government, with a tally of 220 seats, and are confident it will form the next government with a comfortable majority.  Congress improved its tally among bettors who are now giving it 162 seats, against an earlier estimate of 142 during the fourth phase. The rate punters are offering for Congress is 30 paise, which has come down from 63 paise on offer earlier. For UPA government to make a comeback, the punters are offering 32 paise.

This means that for every one rupee you bet on Congress, you stand to earn Rs 1.30, while for UPA government, one stands to win Rs 1.32,” said a punter.

BJP-led NDA is far behind in the game of odds”, you stand to make Rs 3.10 paise if BJP returns 145 seats, while for NDA forming a government, the rates offered are Rs 1.50, which means you gain Rs 2.50 on ever rupee you bet,” he added.

The rates are likely to see a violent swing on the morning of May 16, as the counting begins. “We will be taking bets on parties and candidate till 10am and will close the game after that,” added a source. Insiders also betting on factors like Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa being wooed by the Congress. Speculation soared after Nitish’s demand for special status to Bihar on Friday. Punters who were earlier wagering on Congress to take Delhi 6-1, are now saying it is likely to sweep the polls. Expectedly, on Friday the odds against West Delhi’s BJP candidate Jagdish Mukhi climbed to 80 paise, from 35 paise a few days ago. An amount of Rs 1,200 crore is at stake, but a large amount has also been diverted to the Indian Premier League, the punter added.

Satta market: Manmohan still tops list of PM hopefuls[8]: With only two days remaining for the Lok Sabha results, there is heavy betting on the fate of political parties and individual candidates PM Manmohan Singh addresses a press conference in Ludhiana. “Bets worth several thousand crore rupees have already been laid so far, and the tempo is likely to go up in the next couple of days. Mumbai has created a record of sorts with a punter — who is in the real estate business — betting as much as Rs 30 crore on different candidates, parties and their combinations,” a leading bookie told TOI on Wednesday.

  • Manmohan Singh continues to be the hot favourite for prime ministership
    with the bhav (odds) on him being 60 paise. This means that every rupee bet on Singh will fetch the bettor Rs 1.60 if he is indeed re-elected PM. If the bookies’ odds are any indication, L K Advani, who is leading the NDA alliance, has very little chance of becoming PM.
  • The bhav on him is Rs 2.50.
  • In fact, some bookies are also offering bhav of Rs 6 on his quitting politics before May 31.
  • NCP head honcho Sharad Pawar is an extremely dark horse (unfancied contender in betting parlance) with the bhav on his becoming PM being Rs 50.
  • The Congress-led UPA is backed to secure 151 seats at even bhav, meaning every rupee bet fetches an extra in return.
  • For the BJP-led NDA, it is even odds for the party winning 122 seats.
  • There is speculation that Lalu Prasad, Ram Vilas Paswan and Mulayam Singh Yadav may face surprise defeats, “the bhav on such upsets is Rs 3, Rs 1.50 and Rs 1.40 respectively.
  • The AIADMK, led by J.Jayalalithaa, is commanding even bhav for 25-plus seats.
  • Even bhav is also on offer for the CPM securing 35 seats.

Satta Bazaar (satta market) works with IPL Cricket and Elections in India: It is unfortunate that Indian cricket is now a big place for sutta market. Here is the details about how it works in India. According to economic times the satta bazaar estimates that at least Rs 20,000 cr will be wagered on the IPL’s 59 matches over a period of 44
days. People of India are wasting their time to watch all long matches of IPL and helps indirectly to satorias to make big money out of it.

How it works- suppose before the cricket match between A and B, you think that B will win the match (B is known as weaker team). Most of other people guess that team A will win. After balencing of demand and supply, suppose for team A odds is 100:25 and for team B, odds is 100:400. If team B wins you will get 400 Rs without spending your 100 Rs. (you have to first deposit 100 Rs, you will get 400+100= 500 Rs). I

f team A wins you have to loose 100 Rs (you will get nothing). If team A wins, the people who have bet on A will get 25 Rs without spending 100 Rs. It is well known that the practice of satta bazar is illegal in India. I would say, stay away from it, otherwise you will sure loose your money and time. Now, you just replace A and B with Congress and BJP, the secret is out!

The Indians voting for BJP are not fools: Definitely, the Indians voting for BJP are not fools, as they want BJP to come to power keeping the powerful India in mind. Therefore, BJP should convince other Indians, who have not been voting for BJP that they are really for India by action. If they get any opportunity, they should prove by their action that they are for the Indians and prepared to make India a powerful nation with economic prosperity and self-sufficiency.
