  • Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis should watch out. NCP chief Sharad Pawar is on the prowl and his gloves are off. And Pawar is likely to hurt the BJP where it is most vulnerable — farmers’ issues, writes Sujata Anandan.

    Time we 'unbent' and 'uncrawled'

    When nurses at the hospital, where I seem to have put down roots, first found out that I was a journalist, they subjected me to a lot of innocent questioning.

    Fadnavis gives off a sense of deja vu

    Watching Devendra Fadnavis reveal his vision for Maharashtra, I was charmed by the sincerity of Maharashtra’s young chief minister. But soon I had an overwhelming sense of déjà vu.

    Bombay police are inspiring confidence

    My column this week is an unusual one — I wish to salute Rakesh Maria and his exemplary force of police officers, both men and women. I salute the Bombay Police once again.

    Narendra Modi is no Indira Gandhi

    Of late, a lot of comparisons are being made between Narendra Modi and Indira Gandhi. They are so similar (read dictatorial), both brook no interference and do not suffer fools gladly, we are told.

    Murli Deora: This was a man

    Uddhav Thackeray is an emerging tiger

    Don’t underestimate Uddhav Thackeray

    After nearly 30 years, the Shiv Sena and the Congress find themselves being forced into the unenviable position of becoming comrades-in-arms once again. However, while the Congress continues to be in the stupor induced upon it ever since its Lok Sabha debacle, I believe Uddhav has the measure of the game and has, so far, played his cards well.

    No wriggle room for Devendra Fadnavis

    A slip twixt the cup and the lip?

    Gadkari worked hard towards turning a Congress fortress in favour of a party that was never regarded as an option even in the headquarters of the RSS until the 2014 Lok Sabha elections whereas Fadnavis’ contribution to this electoral victory has been as negligible as Shinde’s was in 2004.

    Decoding NCP offer to BJP: Is it insurance against action?

    NCP's support to the BJP — even if the party eventually turns it down – is just a form of buying insurance against any future action the incoming government might want to take against the NCP members.
