How do you think this reshuffle will in any way help the BJP in its come back during 2019?


The Finance Ministry is one that needs to be handled with more care. Unlike other portfolios, not all politicians can be trusted to take care of finance. One misstep and the markets will react adversely within hours and the govt. will be in peril. If the FM is gonna change, you need a know actor to replace him.
Moreover, we feel that Nirmala Sitaraman would have been more suitable for the Finance portfolio than Defense. Also as a know actor with a good track record in the Commerce ministry, she might have been better suited to it. Finance Minister, Jaitley could have retained defense which he had been managing for sometime now.
Coming to whether this reshuffle will help the party win in 2019, well one can only speculate. This move does reassert the position Modi and Shah have in running business. That would help in negotiations come 2019.
In addition allies have not gained in this round which make the motive clear. The BJP is in a position to expect a majority of it’s own in 2019. Hence allies who accept the BP lead will see some gains. The Shiv Sena has long expected to control Maharastra even at the cost of hurting the BJP. Handing them a ministry would have sent the wrong message. Losing an ally like the Shiv Sena won’t hurt the party in the long run.
Coming to the JD(U), the reason they weren’t inducted is also quite clear. Post the UP victory, many regional parties look to join the NDA in hope of portfolios. This hurts the brand as it includes more variables to control come 2019. The JD(U) treatment is a signal to parties like the AIADMK that in 2019, the BJP treated as equals in their states if they hope to be a part of the government. This reshuffle is the the BJP’s signal to all parties that they are in full throttle for 2019....

FARMER'S DISTRESS AND RURAL ACTIVISM IN INDIA, TRILOK SINGH

“The future depends on what you do today", Mahatma Gandhi. Above statement has resounding relevance in the context of today, characterized by the emergence of a society comprising of ordinary men and women armed with courage that has had the power to change systems. While mainstream media coverage has brought national attention to the condition of farmers in India. Indeed, Indian farmers are in agrarian distress or agrarian Crisis mode but our governments remained unchanged or unaffected with regard to farmer's demand. Recently, huge number of farmers from across India collectively gathered in the National Capital at Ramlila Maidan, On November 20, 2017. Further, they are protesting against the cost versus income imbalance recently being faced by our farmers, leading to suicides and indebtedness. But again i want to say that, "such kind of Protest and Strike is not an option because it is a loss of farmer not of Government but Government should take farmer and agricultu…

Why Electoral Funding at Present is The Fountainhead of Corruption?

"Leadership is not about the next election, it's about the next upcoming generation.", Simon sinek. As a citizen of India we proud of our Indian Democracy but few of us bother to fund a political party of our choice.. It is very hard to articulate or imagine a present developed or developing political structure or so called 'system' that can do without its political funding, digitizing and institutionalizing parties and election effectively rooted in social, political, economic and cultural cleavages with voter alignments too.
Generally, it is crucial that an 'Election Agency' cannot be part and parcel of the government and should be insulate from the governmental influences of any layers or levels. So, it automatically becomes 'Centralised Election Agency'. Such kind of agency may provides the opportunities to learn from the experiences of different sub National elections to the ruling party. i.e., In 2006 West Bengal Assembly Elections..
