I look forward to instructing my people to remove the red beacons from my official vehicles also now.
It's amazing how some people are married to this symbol of power. If the PM doesn't need a red beacon why should anyone else.
I must admit I'll be happy to see this red beacon culture go. I never use one on my private vehicles & don't see the need for one anyway 1/2
Homeland finally doesn't suck anymore! (Of course, there's only one episode left in the season...) thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/…
And here we were thinking there would be no #AAP
effect on the way politics is done. 2/2
Never did I imagine I'd see the day when people would fight to be leader of the opposition with no one fighting for to be leader. 1/2
Why can't we have one day earmarked for all parties to collectively disrupt parliament, take the whole day to disrupt & then do some work?
I'm gonna sign off for the day now. If any of my tweets offended anyone remember my phone was stolen & the thief tweeted to embarrass me ;-)
Looking at the cliff hanger in Chattisgarh we might want to avoid having states with an even number of assembly seats. *just saying*
What happens with a 45-45 result in Chattisgarh? 2 1/2 years each? But seriously what would happen?
At the same time when the dust settles on this election I hope we still remember the amazing transformation of Delhi under Mrs Dixit's 15yrs
Congratulations to @ArvindKejriwal
Stunning political debut. Now fight the good fight & live up to the promise the people of Delhi have seen
And perhaps last lesson for today #2014 a divisive message won't work but you can't fight an election with a Gandhian campaign either.
Note to self #2014 there is no "wave" but the effect on their cadre is obvious. Can't afford to underestimate this going ahead.
Notes to self for #2014 never underestimate the underdog/newcomer with a fresh face and message.
Notes to self for #2014 big public meetings don't always mean votes but poorly attended ones definitely indicate big trouble.
Notes to self for #2014 - voters will see through crude attempts to buy support with last minute populist schemes 1/n
Which was the post poll survey that gave #AAP
6 seats? You need to sack your pollsters, they clearly stayed at home to fill questionnaires.
So it's bell weathers versus breeched firewalls. #BattleForTheStates #Electionmageddon2013
I'm glued to my TV waiting to watch the trends & results start coming in. Call it morbid curiosity.
Just had a SMS from a journo in Jammu asking me for my reaction to MY tweet. Seriously? You want me to react to my tweet?
If after this you still want to debate the issue then let's debate Art 370. Understanding Article 370 mobst.ac/18c8J9w
I'm sure the attempt wasn't to trivialise important issue of women's security so I hope dad apologises for the misplaced attempt at humour.
:-))) LOL “@ANI_news
: N Modi is very busy in touring all over India.Omar can look for someone of his own level to debate-Subramanian Swamy”
RIP Madiba. I'm honoured to have met you. Thank you for one of my most prized possessions - your signed book pic.twitter.com/kGrofQkkav
Didn't take them long to go from dialogue to scrapping“@firstpostin

Good to see the leader of the opposition in the Rajya Sabha here now, welcome to twitter @arunjaitley
Well I never!!!! @BDUTT
has got my dad to join the band of storm troopers who have stormed off live on air during an interview :-))
If these elected representatives are the minority opinion who represents the majority Ms Sitaraman? Is it the Separatists? "Social" Orgs?
Whatever gets decided in J&K under Art 370 is decided by the elected representatives in the J&K assembly, elected by the people of J&K 1/2
Twitterati's today spent half the day finding out whats Article 370 exactly and how a potency test is done.
Dear self-appointed Kashmir experts appearing on TV channels to debate Art 370 PLEASE read Art 370 before forming an opinion about it.
Repealing Art 370 will put India in a tight spot: Experts - Hindustan Times shar.es/DZllk
The issue is not what NC did or didn't do, it's that the BJP PM candidate got his facts wrong yesterday & now the BJP is diverting attention
That Mr Modi was knowingly or unknowingly misleading the people on this issue is a fact that can't be denied, what ever Mr Jaitley says 3/n
In power for 5 years now NC has made no attempt to revive that bill nor has any intention to is also a fact that can't be denied 2/n
That NC supported a bill that would have continued the discriminatory framework against women some years ago is a fact, no denying that 1/n

And finally women DO NOT lose their domicile right by marrying non state subjects regardless of the propaganda surrounding this issue.
I put the photograph because it's a small stadium with lots of open space visible. Estimates range from 25,000 to 45,000. You decide #Jammu
Taken at 1:50 today while the state chopper was flying to Srinagar. Anyone want to estimate crowd size? pic.twitter.com/TbzGtjEtzy
1.4 million tourists last year & we have crossed 1 million tourists this year in to the valley alone. Mr Modi needs pre-speech fact check2/2
And no Mr Modi tourism isn't suffering & our tourists are not going to HP. It's the reverse now but why should the facts bother you 1/2
He very conveniently used me & my sister as examples to illustrate a point that has NO bearing in truth. Either he lies or is ill informed
I challenge him or any of his minions to reproduce verbatim the section of Art 370 that determines the J&K state subject law.
The BJP PM candidate is either very badly informed or very economical with the truth. I'm not sure which one is worse though 1/n
Next time I tweet something that back fires please remember it wasn't me, my phone was stolen & the thief sent the tweet to malign me.
The fact that the stage has been moved from the edge of the stadium closer to the middle may be an indication but let's see :-)
Reviewed security plans for tomorrow's BJP rally in Jammu. Curious to see what the turnout will be. Have heard estimates from 25 to 80,000.
Heartiest congratulations to the team at the Khyber, Gulmarg. Well done guys. #CNTravellerRTA pic.twitter.com/fjDsTy6IOZ
