Is there an understanding ?

Is there an understanding between " Behenji " and the BJP ?.Congress is number one enemy of BJP and Samajwadi Party is number one enemy of BSP. In case there is any Coalition -The BJP will give weightage to Mayawati for UP and in return the BSP will extend support in the Rajya Sabha. And win-win situation for both.




BJP Vijayi ..

After the initial trends of BMC elections I call my Stock Broker friend and we decide to meet in the evening at the same eatery we met yesterday.

Over Ussal and Vada Paos and Kesar Faloodas we get chatting.

Me: So BJP doing very well...when the initial trends started coming out Sena thought it's a clean sweep for them and started bursting crackers.....Udhav jumping the gun as usual....Mr Speedy Gonsalves...I think his pet-name should have been Thamba or Stop....
SBF: As if the one who bursts crackers wins...MNS votes leaked to Sena...many Sainiks who had walked out with Raaj returned home to Sena...Udhav should thank his Cousin Raj for being a part-time Neta....Raaj's day they say starts at 3 ...and they say he has this fetish to keep changng his clothes. .. credit to Balasahib for recognizing Raaj as ...all brimstone but no Content Neta and not handing the reigns to him...or even Joint Command.. had MNS not leaked votes Sena would be at 70+......
M: BJP has done exceptionally well...won 8 out of 10...and then the steep rise in its seats in BMC...51 seats ...will SS ally with BJP in both do not have majority on their own....
SBF: Mumbai and Thane are not Maharashtra .... if Sena realizes BJP's growing foot print in Maharashtra it would ally with BJP and accept its seniority ... but another point is being said that BJP has the support of 4 Independent Councillors ...ex BJP .....then BJP is the largest Party...
M: So now what does Congress and its Paaltu Media have to say about this election being a mini General Election ...and Demonetization effect....Sonia in her letter to UPites has said BJP causing pain to Indians..
SBF: They'll not even mention this now... and Citadel Sonia who is 'locked up' in 10 Janpath and relies on her Cutlery for info.... is totally oblivious of the truth...
M:But where do you think BJP should have concentrated on more in Mumbai ...
SBF: Getting its supporters out to vote ...BJP supporters need to be 'coerced' to step out and vote ...whereas likes of Sena ..they have a huge voter base ...that can be called ...Vela or idle ..and can be mobilized to Vote or a jiffy...
M: All 10 elections ...NCP and Congress have done badly ..apart from 2 ...BMC and Thane ...Sena also has done badly ...what now for NCP and Congress ..
SBF: SOP for Congress..Scapegoat/s will take responsibility ...RaGa will continue with whatever he does....must be planning his overseas trip post March 11..... I think Pawar should now retire from BCCI is now Out of Bounds he can train and become an Umpire to satiate his love for Cricket...Praful should now concentrate on his Tobacco business....and keep his fingers crossed ...alleged that Maharaja's woes started with him... Ajit Pawar can keep peeing in dams ...
M: Funny in her letter to UPites Sonia has not even mentioned Congress's Senior Alliance Partner in UP...SP ......says a lot...I'm sure Amit Shah would be guffawing ..
SBF: Speaking of Amit Shah .... do you know he's just 6 years older than RaGa...
M: In maturity ...achievements capabilities ...light years ahead of RaGa...

We laugh and move out ...

Noise pollution can be reduced

Noise pollution can be reduced to great extent in cities of the country, if stop misuse of vehicle facilities by the Ministers, Bureaucrats & Defence Personnel and Top Executives of companies/PSUs/NGOs for their personal purposes either at the cost of the exchequer and companies/PSus/NGOs (in order to get more profit & consequental tax). This will also reduce traffic jams and reduce pollution.


Innocent MMS !

With his statement MMS lost respect he had as an economist & a former PM. For 10 years he presided over a leaderless, rudderless & a sycophant regime known for corruption, inflation, policy paralysis & scams. After knowing that most currency came to banks, he calls the demonetisation as loot & plunder. Having approved all major coal auctions, he left the Coal Secys to face CBI music & walked away with the mercy shown by CBI Court. In 2G scam he claimed to know nothing while Raja released all the correspondence with him!!

Trump's progress is excellent

1.Trump's forward progress is excellent and time to time U turn with corrections is remarkable and required. 2.Ignoring is not possible till the end of the term. "Live with it "is the only solution and Fate and God is ultimate and no body can challenge. Love is from the heart and hate is technical and based on outcome result and out of analysis from mind and heart both.
3.Laloo is only interested in Bihar and represents masses of India. And his thinking and remark is remarkable.
4.We are far behind as far as happiness, positive result, employment and progress is concerned. We are ahead in Dream project which is not required. Miracles do not happen. We have to understand We have to make it.
