In other words they were out for bigger fish but came up short. Articles give the impression its political. Let them dig some more and see what comes up.

Operated like professional killers.
Perfect hires for inflaming communal commotion.

May be normal in a place like j&k. It's out of the ordinary elsewhere in the country.

I mean since when the do Indian political parties hire hit men to take out political opponents ? who can give me examples

Terrorist groups ? yes. Two examples that go to the highest level.

This needs more probing as to funding, whether its coming from abroad as in next door.

Communal commotion isn't what i'm thinking. Been done to death and does not work very well.

Political turmoil is more like it. That's the bigger prize

Varun is some small fry. They got paid and had to show something. They went for the easiest target.

Not very competent

If the americans can take out Solemaini then the Paks are thinking they can get who they want in India too ?

Because i expect to take their generals out, in their bedrooms should they try anything here.

Brave new world :)

This government seriously has its priorities at the wrong place. This Piyush Goel guy should have his head examined. Someone tell him most booze is not made in china.

Wonder what the other "non essential" items are. I wonder how it is an import if sellers and buyers are both Indian? Are they losing so much money on such trivial things that they need to curb it? Stupid bean counters. They should ban construction of stupid statues and memorials first instead of running after such small things.

As per Indian rules all liquor sold in India must also be brewed and bottled here as well except for liquor sold in duty free shops. But i agree with you that this is a pointless exercise. Reminds me of the saying "penny-wise but pound-foolish".

Are you sure? As far as I know premium drinks like JW, Absolut, Bombay Sapphire are not bottled here and they are imported. They only need to comply with the FSSAI regulations to show the ingredients on the bottle.

i know scotch and champagne would be exempt for this rule as they have a geographic specific component (like basmati rice) but i might me mistaken about the other two since i live in TN and we have even stricter liquor rules here. I'll keep an eye out for the info if i come across a JW or absolut. I know all the bacardi, smirnoff, etc. are brewed and bottled in India (at least all the bottles i've seen) but that could just be because they are mass-market items.

See what you said seven years ago :)

They'll ban other items too. Failure FM's don't know anything else other than increasing taxes and banning imports.

Stupid govt has spent 100k crore on that failure of a scheme called Mnrega, which didn't help anyone except lining their pockets. Now, they will spend few more thousand crores on food security after it gets passed. I am so pissed off by this corrupt govt :mad::

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

It is weird that the thread title is that "BJP can do course correction".

This is the course they have always wanted to set. There is nothing they want to correct. This is the path they always wanted us to be on.

The arent accidental inheritors of the British Divide and rule policy. It is by design.

Yes but they did promise the world to us - Vikaas, Acche din, 5 trillion economy etc. That course is way off now.

So anyone criticising certain actions by the goverment must belong to a certain community huh???

At least you are honest and upfront about your bigotry which some other more sophisticated people are better at masking.

Modi managed to interest a large chunk of our educated youth in 2013-14 in politics with his hopes and dreams for a better future after all the corruption of the UPA government. I also got swept up in those dreams and voted for Modi the first time around.

But then I saw the mishandling of demonetization and GST and day by day our GDP going down which was his basic promise to us. I also cheered for the ban of the talaq law which in my opinion is unconstitutional. The law should be the same for all citizens of a secular country.

Supporting a leader is human nature as we all look up to someone who can lead us to a better future. But blind fanboyism where every criticism is taken as a personal affront is not going to imporve our lot. We have to keep in mind that as voters we are consumers of a government. If they deliver value and hold up to their promises we vote for them/ buy their products or else we criticize their failures.

Never ever equate a nation with a party since the sole interest of any party is to hold on to power by hook or by crook. Churchill didn't say that democracy is the least worst form of goverment for nothing.

But now that they have not managed to deliver on the baseline promises they have gone back to their fallback position which is divide and rule. All issues with their management of the nation's growth can be camouflaged with this us vs them mentality.
