Time to return favour: Uddhav's message to Modi 21.9.2014 deccanherald.com
Driving a hard bargain with BJP over seat sharing in Maharashtra assembly polls, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray today reminded Prime Minister Narendra Modi that after 2002 Gujarat riots his father Bal Thackeray had prevailed on L K Advani not to remove Modi as Chief Minister. Asserting that the alliance should stay "as it is for Hindutva", Uddhav said, "Everyone knows how terrible the situation was when the Godhra riots took place. "Everyone was saying that Modi should be immediately removed from the Gujarat CMs post. At that time, it was only Balasaheb who told L K Advani that Modi should stay on as he pursues the Hindutva ideology," he said. Uddhav was echoing what Bal Thackeray had reportedly said in an editorial in the Sena mouthpiece Saamana in February 2009. "Modi gaya to Gujarat gaya (If Modi goes, Gujarat will also slip out of BJPs hands)," Bal Thackeray had claimed to have told Advani on moves to remove Modi after the communal riots in Gujarat. "There were hectic moves to remove Modi from the ...
Muslims not allowed in garbas in Godhra 19.9.2014 deccanherald.com
Navratri might just be a few days away but the diktats for the organisers are already out. In the communally-sensitive Godhra, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has already issued a diktat saying that the Muslim youths cannot participate in the garba events there. Similar diktats have been issued by leaders in other parts of the country, including Madhya Pradesh and the VHP here wants to ensure that Gujarat does not remain an exception. So, a newly floated body Hindu Asmita Hitrakshak Samiti has warned garba organisers that their venue would face action if Muslim youths were spotted during Navratri. The nine-day Navratri festival begins on September 25. Senior VHP leader in Godhra, Ashish Bhatt said, "There is nothing wrong in this kind of a diktat, after all Navratri is about religion and what will Muslim youths do in such venues." Bhatt said the Muslim youths had no business to be present in such religious events of the Hindus and add up to the chaos. Meanwhile, P B Baria, one of the organisers of ...

Why Modi is media wary 31.8.2014 deccanherald.com
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has countered the suggestion that Prime Minister Narendra Modi could have avoided controversies like the one involving rumours concerning Home Minister Rajnath Singh and his son if his office had a better PR set-up. Jaitley said Modi adopted the strategy of engaging with the people directly because he had experienced a hostile media in the past. He recalled that Modi became a subject of criticism for a majority of newspapers after the riots that broke out in Gujarat following the Godhra train tragedy in February 2002. According to a leading newspaper, then Gujarat chief minister Modi had said in an interview to it that every action has a reaction, justifying the violence. Jaitley, who was speaking at an event where two books on Modi were released, said no such interview had ever taken place, but it became the launch pad for the anti-Modi campaign. He said Modi's plea for peace and other statements were not published, and it was because of the media's hostility that he chose ...
