  • PM Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi greet people on Guru Purnima

    New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday greeted the people on the occasion of Guru Purnima. “Guru Purnima greetings to everyone. Ours is a society that holds teachers in very high esteem. We thank our teachers, who always inspire and bring out the best in us,” Modi tweeted.

  • Hug, wink won’t get votes

    The hug and wink, no doubt, caught Prime Minister Narendra Modi unawares, sufficiently embarrassing him before the entire nation while Rahul Gandhi hogged media headlines. Nevertheless, episodic social media approbation is no short cut to electoral success. After gaining some traction in Gujarat and Karnataka in the last eight months, the Congress appears to have lost steam again. It has not been successful in pinning down the Modi government on the demonetisation

  • Rahul Gandhi-as-PM looks like a pie-in-the-sky

  • Congress open to Prime Minister from allies in 2019, says sources

    New Delhi: Having given the green signal to party president Rahul Gandhi to stitch new alliances, the party is sending out feelers that though it would like Gandhi to be the next Prime Minister, the party chief would not mind bending backwards and supporting a candidate of one of the allies. The only rider is he/she should not be backed by the RSS, said electronic media sources.

  • NEET candidates data leak: Rahul Gandhi writes to CBSE chief, seeks enquiry

    New Delhi: Congress president Rahul Gandhi has written a letter to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) over media reports claiming “massive breach” of data of candidates who appeared for the NEET examination this year. He also demanded a thorough enquiry into the matter.

  • Shrinking base of the Congress

    Two days after his hug-and-wink act during the debate in the Lok Sabha on a no-trust motion, Rahul Gandhi presided over the first meeting of the party’s newly-constituted working committee. The coming State and parliamentary polls were on the minds of the participants. The main States going to the polls later this year — Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarth — there is more or less a direct contest between the ruling BJP

  • A melodramatic hug and a tell-tale wink

    The emphatic victory of the Narendra Modi government in the no-confidence motion moved by the Telugu Desam Party was creditable. But it does not detract from the fact that the trial of strength in the Lok Sabha was not really about overthrowing the government and triggering a general election some six months before schedule. It has become almost customary for an opposition, especially an opposition that believes it is on a political
