Do you know what's the ground situation in Bengal?
I'm no expert but I've been there many times and have a few friends from Bengal.
Do you know the ground situation in Bengal? Please tell me why I'm wrong for not wanting BJP to win there.


Whatever the situation is under TMC at least the religious violence has been somewhat controlled.
If BJP comes to power its going back to those dark days of religious clashes, which no one wants (excepts Bhakts)

Thank you for your inputs as incorrect they might be.

As someone who has no political affiliations and yet been directly physically assaulted by the TMC goons - all of whom were motivated by religious causes, I frankly think you know nothing.

Those TMC goons used to be CPIM goons, if BJP comes into power then those TMC goons will become BJP goons.

Goons follow money.

There has been a clear open polarisation which was kept under the surface during CPIM rule. But as I said, unless one gets beaten up (which I don't wish on anyone), you won't know the extent to which the administration has been made impotent.

The TMC has out Lefted the Left, if you know what I mean.

Paranoia about digital coverage led ministers to propose media clampdown, monitoring “negative influencers”

The government’s move to regulate digital news and social media follows a road map chalked out during the height of the pandemic, in a report on government communication prepared by a group of ministers, or GoM, comprising five cabinet ministers and four ministers of state. One of the core concerns of the report has been voiced in an observation by Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, the union minister of minority affairs, “We should have a strategy to neutralise the people who are writing against the Government without facts and set false narratives / spread fake news.”

The choice of words is revealing, as is the fact that the report does not spell out what a fake narrative is and how the government chooses to define it. Though its mandate was couched in cautious terms, the GoM’s report clearly sought to improve the image of the government in the media, and there is no ambiguity in how it proposed to go about it. The report laid out the need to identify journalists who generate negative narratives, find others who can counter them and to create events of a spectacular nature that would influence public perception in its favour.

The recently notified Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules, 2021, which has come under criticism for excessive government control over digital media, are clearly in keeping with this strategy.
Evidently, the government’s stranglehold over the mainstream media is not reflected in its own perception of the media environment.

The report, parts of which have been accessed by The Caravan, was based on six meetings of the GoM in mid 2020, and consultations with “prominent persons from the media field,” and “members of industry/business chambers,” and other “prominent personalities.” The details of the GoM’s report had first appeared in a Hindustan Times article published on 8 December 2020. Apart from Naqvi, the cabinet members in the GoM included Ravi Shankar Prasad, the minister of law and justice and of communications, electronics and information and technology; Smriti Irani, the minister of textiles and of women and child development; Prakash Javadekar, the minister of information and broadcasting; and S Jaishankar, the minister of external affairs. The ministers of state were Hardeep Singh Puri, Anurag Thakur, Babul Supriyo, and Kiren Rijiju.

The report proposed a range of recommendations to address the perceived image crisis. Implementing a recommendation by Irani to track 50 negative and positive influencers, the report assigned the responsibility for “Constant tracking of 50 negative influencers” to the Electronic Media Monitoring Centre of the ministry of information and broadcasting, or MIB. Under a section titled, “Action Points,” the report notes, “Some negative influencers give false narratives and discredit the Government. These need to be constantly tracked so that proper and timely response can be given.” Correspondingly, the action points also include “Regular engagement with 50 positive influencers” and “Engaging with journalists … who are supportive of Government or neutral.” The report noted that such journalists would “not only give positive stories but also counter the false narratives.”

The government’s paranoia is evident in the views of the ministers and key media personalities noted in the report. Swapan Dasgupta, a former mediaperson who is now a Rajya Sabha member of parliament for the BJP, has been quoted as stating, “After 2014, there was a change. It was marginalization of stalwarts. Mr. Modi won despite them. He chose to ignore them. He met people directly through social media. It is this eco-system which is hitting back to remain relevant.” Dasgupta proposed that “the power of persuasion should be used behind the scenes.” He added, “These back-channel communications should start on priority by giving journalists a little bit extra in a calibrated approach.” In recent weeks, Delhi courts have admonished the Delhi Police for media leaks of its investigations to selective news channels twice, in the case against Disha Ravi and in the Delhi violence conspiracy case.

Surya Prakash, a mediaperson who now heads Prasar Bharati, echoed Dasgupta: “Pseudo-secularists were marginalised earlier. The problem is starting from them.” He went on to state what needs to be done. “Indian Government has enormous power to utilise the position to control them,” he said, adding that “we need to introspect” the fact that in the last six years, “we have not enlarged the list of media friends by having new allies.”

Nitin Gokhale, who was formerly with NDTV and Tehelka, and is now close to the national security advisor Ajit Doval, suggested that any such process must begin by colour-coding journalists. “Green – fence sitters; Black – against; and White – who support. We should support and promote favourable journalists.”


This would appear farcical but for the fact that since the report has been prepared two of the key points regarding control of digital content have already been acted upon. In a section titled, “Positive Initiatives in Vogue,” the report noted, “Steps have been taken to ensure that the news reporting on digital media is not biased primarily due to its foreign investment component. It has been decided to cap the foreign investment to 26% and the process to implement the same is under way.” The report also stated, “New mechanism need to be involved to ensure that OTT platform become more responsible.”

In August 2019, the union cabinet cleared a decision to cap foreign investment in digital media at 26 percent, and gave news organisations a deadline of one year from October 2020 to comply with the new norms. The next month, Huffington Post, which pursued several stories critical of the central government, shut its operations in India. Jonah Peretti, the CEO of BuzzFeed—which acquired Huffington Post days before the Indian operations shut down—had said at the time that he was not “legally allowed to take on the Brazil and India editions” because “foreign companies aren’t allowed to control news organisations.” The IT Rules of 2021 empower the government to exercise greater control over over-the-top, or OTT platforms, such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

This anxiety about digital media is reflected throughout the report. Kanchan Gupta, a distinguished fellow at the Reliance-funded think-tank Observer Research Foundation, suggested another possible direction for the government to focus on. “Google promotes content or (sic) Print, Wire, Scroll, Hindu, etc. which are online news platforms,” he said. “How to handle this needs a separate discussion and should be looked into.” He noted that “online media generates much heat” and added, “We should know how to influence the online media or we should have our own On-online portal with global content.”

The union law minister Prasad voiced the government’s frustration at its inability to exercise complete control of the narrative. “While we get insightful suggestions, it is not explained how despite being in Government, there is still a gap in the online media like Wire, Scroll and some regional media,” he said. “Our core media intervention is not getting enlarged.”


In the face of this perceived hostility, the government has even given a name to the idea of the government acting in a dramatic and decisive manner to seize control of the narrative—the “Pokhran effect.” The term invokes the nuclear tests carried out by the former prime ministers, first under Indira Gandhi in 1974 and then Atal Behari Vajpayee in 1998. Both led to huge publicity boosts for the respective governments.

The idea stemmed from the RSS ideologue S Gurumurthy, who was one of the “prominent personalities” consulted for the report. Gurumurthy elaborated, “How to change the eco-system like Pokhran, how to handle media hostility, how to bother about main-line media? All these should be focused upon.” He proposed using the allied, non-BJP chief ministers of Bihar and Odisha to shift the narrative. “Planned communication is good for normal times but to create Pokhran effect, let Shri Nitish Kumar or Shri Naveen Patnaik say something about it. This is being done by Republic, but Republic is seen as a pariah. Therefore, we need a Pokhran to turn the narrative.”

Perhaps, it is only through such a lens that we can truly understand the periodic drama that intersperses the Modi government’s terms in power—from a surgical strike to demonetisation. Prasad noted as much in the report: “Concept of ‘Pokhran effect’ is good and should be used in other messaging also.”

The law minister went on to recommend that “Few eminent academicians, VCs, retired IFS officers etc should be identified who can write our achievements and project out view point.” The need to look outside the government for such pieces seemed to stem from a perception that Ashok Malik, a policy advisor in the ministry of external affairs, or MEA, spelled out in the report. “Stop Op-Ed by Ministers, top bureaucrats because it has become an epidemic and it is counterproductive, because it sounds like propaganda and it is not being read,” Malik said.

While assigning the MIB the responsibility of finding people who can do better than the government’s own ministers and bureaucrats, the report is honest and unambiguous in its assessment of what this requires. The action points listed: “Identify persons with ability to give good arguments – Same fact can be presented with different narratives. So, a pool of Spin Doctors who can do it for the Government should be identified and utilised.

The report claimed to have consulted “prominent persons from the media field” during a meeting with Naqvi and the minister of state Kiren Rijiju at the latter’s residence on 26 June 2020. The report named the journalists “Alok Mehta, Jayant Ghoshal, Shishir Gupta, Praful Ketkar, Mahua Chatterjee, Nistula Haibar, Amitabh Sinha, Ashutosh, Ram Narain, Ravish Tiwari, Himanshu Mishra and Ravindra,” without identifying their institutional affiliations.
Curiously, when contacted by The Caravan, many of these journalists said that no such meeting was planned as part of a consultation with the GoM on government communication. Rather, they said, it was supposed to be an informal interaction with senior government ministers, including Jaishankar, the external-affairs minister, at a time when tensions with China were in focus.

Yet, the report attributes a set of observations to the journalists collectively without naming individuals. It is the only section of the report where such observations are not directly attributed to specific individuals. These observations include:
Around 75% of media persons are impressed by the leadership of Shri Narendra Modi and are ideologically with the party.
We should form different groups of these persons and communicate with them on a regular basis.
Government should give the supporting background material to the supportive media before the launch of any big programme and also during the follow-up for its better publicity.
Groups should be formed of supportive editors, columnists, journalists and commentators and they should be regularly engaged.
The interactions with the foreign media should stop as it is turning out to be counter-productive.
Considering the journalists mentioned include senior correspondents with organisation such as the Indian Express and The Hindu, it is surprising that these observations sound even more extreme than the rest of the report. The Caravan contacted several of these journalists named in the report. While the executive editor of the Hindustan Times, Shishir Gupta, did not respond, the others distanced themselves from the observations attributed to them but were unwilling to be named.

The only person to go on record was Jayanta Ghoshal, who was formerly the political editor at India TV and now works with the West Bengal government. “We went there to meet Jaishankar,” Ghoshal said. “We were never informed of any interaction with a GoM on government communication and no such formal interaction took place. No notes were taken by anyone on behalf of the ministers present there. I do not know how they came up with these observations.”

Far from cutting off interaction with the foreign media, as purportedly suggested by the journalists, it is clear from the report that the government tasked the MEA and the MIB with “Engagement with Foreign Media.” The report noted, “International outreach is an important component in putting Government’s stand properly in international forum. Regular interaction with foreign media journalists would help disseminate correct information and perspective of the Government, especially on the sensitive issues.”

Under this administration, no such report would be complete without the government looking after its own. Nupur Sharma, the editor of OpIndia unsurprisingly recommended, “The online portals like Op-India should be promoted.” Abhijit Majumdar, formerly of Mail Today, after stating that Alt News propaganda is “vicious” echoed Sharma: “Help Op-India and re-tweet Op-India tweets.” OpIndia is a right-wing website that is infamous for publishing fake news and government propaganda. Alt News is a fact-checking website that has repeatedly highlighted the misinformation spread by OpIndia.

The GoM took note and assigned this task to the MIB. The report stated, “Promote Online Portals- It is needed to promote and support online portals (like Op India) as most of the existing online portals are critical of Government.”

We keep hearing about Covid and trying to maintain social distancing but then I just saw a clip of a rally by dear leader in West Bengal and the place was packed.

Edit-
Election season is in full swing. Elections in WB, KL, TN. Mr Shah is busy campaigning in KL. Tejaswi Surya went in to WB, created a Hindu narrative and now dear leader is portraying a “development” narrative.

He and BJP didn't care during peak Covid-19 season last year. Why will he care now. Some people dying is ok. Power and money is more important.

Has any one heard about the latest employment law passed in Haryana? What a shambles.

Same as the one passed by Madhya Pradesh under Kamal Nath. Won't pass legal scrutiny and they will pass this as only for "non technical jobs" with next to no clarification on what constitutes technical jobs and then it will never get implemented while still getting political mileage out of it.

Several states from South has this discussion (not sure if they have passed anything like this) on daily basis.

Shit show in Maharashtra. Anil Deshmukh was more interested in investigating Sachin and Lata Mangeshkar for their tweet over his actual work. Guess if you get 100cr per month, you don't need to work. Since it's not BJP, there won't be big hue and cry from usual "media".

Not surprising considering Valmikis are not considered human by leftist and right wing people. Till the revocation of Article 370, they were only considered fit enough to clean the streets of Jammu and Kashmir ( fun fact Hindu pandits were thrown out but Valmikis were kept otherwise who will clean stuff for Abdullahs and Muftis). A fact which Dalit leftist leaders forgot when they used to claim to champion the cause of Dalits ( right wing are considered ( by leftist) anti dalit so should not
expect anything from them I guess).

Godi media of the other side trying desperately to deflect this


Deshmukh was busy attending press conference during this time. One of his massive work included below ground breaking work

Here’s the thing buddy. The bar of Indian politics was extremely low and no one is surprised to see corruption cases against other parties.

But like a typical bhakt, you have established that we don’t give a feck about the insurmountable amount of problems the country is facing. BJP, its sell out media and its supporters are just lashing out at other parties and saying “Look. They’re so corrupt”.

Even if we accept that Shiv Sena is corrupt, shall we accept BJP as the only option that should rule all our states?

Look around and see what a shambles the country and its media has become. No one gives a feck about our democratic values, denigration of our institutions or the 300 farmers dying on the roads.

And idiots like you are just happy to hunt for opportunities to point fingers at other parties.

Do you have any questions or observations on how BJP has performed in these 7 years? Giving a few topics to consider:
  • The backdoor entries to states where they don’t win elections by buying MLAs
  • Unconstitutional laws brought in Delhi
  • Farmers dying on the road
  • Economy on an all time low
  • Inflation at an all time high
  • Karnataka sex for job scandal
  • UP daily violence against women reports
  • Repeated lies spoken by Home Minister and PM during campaign trails (Bomb factory)
  • The fact that instead of doing their jobs serving their positions, the HM and PM are campaigning to serve their parties
  • Opposition not allowed to debate either farmers protest or fuel prices in the parliament
  • 14 year old Muslim kid beaten for drinking water at a Hindu temple. BJP leaders tweeting in the support of the assaulter.
  • Unconstitutional laws to shut the digital news outlets. This is based on a report of BJP ministers on how to tackle unfriendly news outlets. The report was based on discussions during June’20, at the peak of the pandemic
And these are all from just last month.

We do need development and jobs in WB though. And before the election rallies also WB was fully open anyway. We had WB government organised food festival, sweet festival, khadi festival and music festival 100 metres from my home. But I'm sure that's all fine because they are generating unorganised employment

Admit it without bias. No one from any government (dear leader or opposition) gives a feck about COVID anymore.

No point in abusing and mocking him. He's not the enemy here, he's been misled by half truths and fake news by the fascists. He won't suddenly see the light whilst being abused and mocked.

Former President Abdul Kalam Was Jihadi: Priest of Ghaziabad Temple


The priest of a Ghaziabad temple, where a Muslim boy was thrashed for drinking water on its premises, targeted former president APJ Abdul Kalam on Tuesday over his religion, calling him a “jihadi”.

“Any Muslim in the top echelons of the country cannot be pro-India and Kalam was a jihadi,” Dasna Devi Temple’s Yati Narsinghanad Saraswati told reporters in Aligarh.

Levelling allegations without substance, he accused late Kalam of supplying the formula of the “atom bomb to Pakistan as DRDO chief”.

“Kalam had formed a cell in the Rashtrapati Bhawan where any Muslim could file his grievance,” the priest claimed.

Nuns from Kerala attacked by Bajrang Dal men in Jhansi

The nuns and postulants belong to the Sacred Heart convent under the Kerala-based Syro-Malabar Church. According to the church and videos that have surfaced online, a few members of the Bajrang Dal created a ruckus in the train as it reached Jhansi in Uttar Pradesh, claiming that the nuns were forcefully converting the postulants into Christianity.

The postulants were dressed in civilian clothes while the nuns were in their religious habits. Since the postulants had joined the Sacred Hearts Congregation of the Delhi Province recently and were travelling to their home in Odisha for the first time, the two nuns had accompanied them. However, the Bajrang Dal members, who had boarded the train from Rishikesh in Uttarakhand, accused the nuns of forceful conversion.

In the video, the men can be seen interrogating the postulants, who were forced to show their Aadhaar card. The workers were refusing to believe the postulants, who repeated that they were born Christians and were undergoing training to become a nun. The situation worsened when the police detained the four when the train reached Jhansi Railway station and reportedly questioned them for five hours based on the claims of the Hindu group.


According to a statement from the Syro-Malabar Church, the four women were let off after top officials verified their information. They were then transferred to the Jhansi Bishop’s House, after which they commenced their journey on March 21, with the Railway Police Protection.

On Monday, the Syro Malabar Church in Kerala also condemned the incident. They alleged that the attack was planned as more than 100 Bajrang Dal workers gathered in a short span of time. It was said that the nuns missed their train as the police detained them and had to travel in an unreserved compartment the next day.

Ramesh Chennitha alleged that this incident shows how insecure secularism was under the BJP government in India. "Police tried to trap them using the Uttar Pradesh laws. Though they showed identity cards, they were dragged to a police station without the presence of women police officers. Police allowed the crowd to insult the nuns in their presence. They were detained until lawyers from New Delhi contacted them. Nuns were attacked with permission from the state government," he said in a statement.

So a new police force is being set up which can arrest anyone without even a warrant!?! On another note if the police (at the behest of the govt) is treating elected representatives in the legislative assembly like taking out trash then imagine how ordinary citizens will be treated :wenger:.

No point in abusing and mocking him. He's not the enemy here, he's been misled by half truths and fake news by the fascists. He won't suddenly see the light whilst being abused and mocked.
He is fully aware of the things going on around him.
Not every Sanghi is misled and a victim of propaganda some are fascists because they are fascists.

The estimates from PLFS are broadly in line with estimates available from other privately conducted surveys, notably the unemployment surveys of the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE). According to the PLFS April-June 2020 round, the urban unemployment rate for the population above the age of 15 was 20.8 per cent, which is close to the monthly average for the same quarter from CMIE at 19.9 per cent. The CMIE data, however, does suggest a sharp decline in June compared to April and May. Similar to the CMIE data, the PLFS data also shows a sharp rise in the unemployment rate which more than doubled compared to the unemployment rate in the preceding quarter of January-March 2020 at 9.1 per cent and 8.8 per cent in the same quarter (April-June) of 2019. While one in five persons above the age of 15 was unemployed during April-June 2020, the unemployment rate among the 15-29-year-olds was 34.7 per cent — every third person in the 15-29 age group was unemployed during the same period.

The people respond:

Concept of employment is over. Now is the era of skills and self-employment. Author must know that Modi Govt. did not promise salaried jobs of North Block ka Chaparasi, Shastri Bhavan ka Babu.....
Tell those howling about unemployment to attain some skill and work. For lazy bums and free-loaders, employment of their dreams will never come.
Clear my dear Prophets of Doom and Gloom ??
There is a long history of economic mismanagement by Congis behind petrol price rise. Nation is now a superpower, marching ahead. Your horizons are extremely limited. These are pebbles on the path to glory. Anyway if you do not like that, ask Vatican where to migrate.
Trouble with half baked"academics"is they think they can manage&control world by their data sets.Typically like the maths professor who tried to cross a river based on his"data"on its average depth!And drowned midway!!The same attitude donned by despicable raincoat ruined our country with his semi knowledge.One thing these doomsayers fail to factor in in all their search for data, if unemployment levels had really reached such high levels, how r people able to eat,how the hell aren't they angry yet?Particularly,this issue being one affecting youth most&they are the most sensitive,aggressive sections of society,shouldn't they be on boil?Especially so now that they know it is so easy to stage a'protest'even for flimsy/no reason at all??On the contrary,what we see is a profound swelling of support for Modi&ruling party in elections across country!How is this possible if your"data sets"were valid?Shouldn't
Our youth dont invent, make , export but riot. China youth inventors, so huge manufacturing, jobs. Time to shift JNU to out of Delhi, use land for JNindustries park.

Beginning to look like WB will fall to Bjp, guessing the 8 stage polling plus dear leader campaigning on polling days has put the final nail in the coffin.

Anyone who has got himself or his parents vaccinated?

Thinking of getting my mom vaccinated but she wants only Covishield. Is there any way to make sure she gets that? She would legit walk out if they try to administer Covaxin
