Despite driving its campaign with a “double engine” fuelled by 20 rallies of Modi and Shah, the BJP, as expected, is trying to distance its national leadership from the loss.

The Netaji that Hindutva wants you to forget

Had Bose been alive in 1947, and, by some quirk of fate, had he, and not Nehru, been the PM, he too would have begun by praising Mahatma Gandhi. He too would have insisted that it was “wrong to suggest that in this country there would be the rule of a particular religion or sect”.
