Amit Shah 2.0
The BJP took a decision which had been described as a foregone conclusion by many. I myself has written sometime back, that Amit Shah was set to be given another term as BJP president. The big question is what does Mr Shah now needs to do to improve the BJP's position?

In 2013, as the Aam Aadmi Party was making waves in the National Capital, joke doing the rounds was that Rahul Gandhi wants to run the Congress like Arvind Kejriwal runs the AAP. Kejriwal spoke for the poor, Rahul spoke for the poor.

My Mann Ki Baat to PM Modi
Dear Honourable PM Modi jee
I must say that I applaud your style of direct communication with people of the country. Your critics say your "MANN KI BAAT" is a lift from South American Presidents, but so be it. Since you have started the policy of direct communication, I thought what better way to reach out to you than in a style that has been started by you.

I just came back from a 2 day trip to Varanasi. Yes, the city described by Mark Twain, "older than history, older than tradition and twice as old as history and tradition combined together". Its my hometown.

Watch Justice Katju at his incisive or what many say is his silliest best. Under fire for describing Mahatma Gandhi as a British agent, I ask the former judge if he is simply trying to be in headlines. Watch Katju defend his statements on Gandhi.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is away in Bangalore. Trying to recover from a chronic cough, which he has battled for the last 3 years. But while he has identified a doctor to cure him of him ailments, his own party, it appears is now terribly in need of a doctor - a specialist at that.

All out war within the AAP. Founding members removed from the highest decision making body of the party. Is the AAP in danger of being split?

I ask him whether he himself was being greedy and ambitious and if that was the real reason for the plot against YY and PB. Should these two leaders be thrown out of the party if they are indulging in anti party activities?

The last time I interviewed Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in 2007, when he was running for a second term as Gujarat Chief Minister. The election was marked by bitterness between the old guard of Gujarat BJP and Modi. Keshubhai Patel had gone on the warpath against Modi and campaigned aggressively within the Patel community in Saurasthra and Kutch. Keshubhai, however, was not alone. Supporting him were the likes of Gordhan Zadaphia and a host of state BJP leaders marginalised by Modi.
