Formation of BJP:
Bhartiya Janata Party was founded in April 1980, after collapse of Janata Party, which was an all party front created by all parties to fight Indira Congress in 1977.

The 300+ seats BJP has won in 2019 is the saffron party’s highest ever Lok Sabha tally. It had won 282 seats in 2014. The saffron map of BJP in 2019:

Happy Holi 2017 to all.
Saffron is the colour of the flag of BJP. It is rightly calling this Holi as Kesaria (i.e. saffronic) Holi. It has earned it.
But who lost?
Is merely the ruling combine in these states, the only loser?
In my humble opinion, the biggest loser is the credibility of the media (a.k.a. Journalism). The media was no where near the ground at all. It was so busy projecting the strength of party which hired it that it completely forgot that it has any duty to report the truth. The subtleness of bias was completely missing. It was open display of solidarity with chosen party. Unfortunately for the media people saw it and cared the least. The credibility of media was already lost perhaps. Continue reading
Rout of opposition in Delhi Elections:
As per expectations, Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party won the Delhi elections and routed all other parties. The latter was a shock. Out of 70 total assembly seats AAP has won 67 seats remaining three being BJP 2 and SAD 1 seat. The projected Chief Ministerial candidate of BJP also lost. Everything went wrong for congress which lost it’s all seats. What made this happen? Right answer is almost obvious but is missed by politicians. Continue reading
