Gujarat is a remarkable win for @BJP4India. But beyond Gujarat, anti-incumbency is rearing its head and even a @narendramodi led campaign can be defeated. My analysis for NDTV:…
@ndtv @sagarikaghose "The Congress's so-called "silent," localised door-to-door campaign has resulted in a near evaporation of the party. Only a few like the victorious Jignesh Mevani in Vadgam have shown the appetite for a fight. Tellingly, Mevani had to crowdsource funds for his campaign."

Gujarat is a big win for @BJP4India but beyond Gujarat, anti-incumbency is rearing it’s head. When Modi is not on the ticket, the “double engine” model tends to falter. My analysis for @ndtv…
The @INCIndia looks set to win #HimachalElectionResults2022 yet it has been almost annihilated in Gujarat. Himachal looking undecided when it could have been a clearer verdict for Cong. Q arises : is Grand Old Party no longer interested in fighting and winning elections ?
Incredible results for @BJP4India in #GujaratAssemblyElection2022 . An over 50% vote share in the 7th successive election is massive but is it due to the Gujarat state government? Let’s remember entire Guj cabinet & CM sacked in 2021.

If it’s counting day it has to be #electionswithNDTV. An early start with @SreenivasanJain @Nidhi and Dorab Sopariwala. #AssemblyElections2022
Congratulations to Shri Krishan Jakhar newly elected @AamAadmiParty #DelhiMCD councillor. We, in your Chirag Delhi ward, looking forward to proactive steps on garbage dumps, tree-planting, besides the improvements in water and power supply. 🙏#MCDElections20222
The @AamAadmiParty set to win #DelhiMCDPolls. BIG victory given the enormous odds: elections postponed, wards changed, leaders jailed, union ministers pushed into civic campaign, Modi name. Still @ArvindKejriwal set to win Delhi. #AamAadmiParty #DelhiMCDElectionResults2022
Many thanks to the Gujarat Lit Fest 2019 in Vadodara for this photo. Enjoyed being with you!
‘The mob of crazed kar sevaks worked ..”ek dhakka aur do..” chanted Sadhvi Rithambara.. they stood on the domes of the #babrimasjid like a ragged army ..they held up bricks screaming “Babur’s bones.” By 5pm, in a cloud of blood red dust, the Babri masjid came crashing down.’
Huge win projected for @BJP4India in Gujarat, clearly benefiting from a divided opposition, Himachal Pradesh seems to be neck and neck as per #ExitPolls, and @AamAadmiParty predicted to sweep the #DelhiMCDPolls. AAP ki Dilli.

Sarah! Today is my lucky day. I sent you several emails but to the wrong address I think. How wonderful to hear from you…
On #Kashmir, by appealing to United Nations under Ch. VI of its charter on ‘peaceful settlement’ Nehru in fact PRE- EMPTED any recourse to Ch VII or any UN ‘action’ on threats to peace.’ Thus, Nehru cannot be faulted on J&K: former FS MK Rasgotra tells me. #JawaharlalNehru
Why should @ECISVEEP speak in the middle of elections? There are no exit polls in the middle of elections , why is the poll neutral umpire speaking while polling process is on? #GujaratElection2022
On voting day, keep your hat on. Vote, Delhi, vote. #DelhiMCDElection2022
Of course, there you are ! March 2011 I think…
Down memory lane ! Covering the Bengal assembly elections of 2011– the @MamataOfficial tsunami election which first swept her to power. This is somewhere in north Bengal
A relevant and insightful article by @sagarikaghose . Can we reimagine politics with more decentralisation? A true Swaraj based on citizen engagement and local delivery of governance? Not about party A or B, but the need for stronger local leadership is indeed an imp discussion.

‘Local’ elections’ but ‘national’ leaders. How the cult of the ‘Supreme Leader’ has meant that every election is now fought in the name of a towering ‘Supremo’ personality. It maybe a winning formula for parties, but where does it leave citizen engagement? A reup of my oped.
"The @AamAadmiParty in #GujaratElections2022 has done what @INCIndia often fails to do: looked @BJP4India directly in the eye and confronted the Modi-led juggernaut in electoral contests."…
“The Kashmir Files #KashmirFiles is a film, an artistic work, thus open to artistic criticism. A film is not the actual event nor is it equal to India or to Indian history.” It requires a foreign visitor to inject much needed sense in today’s India.
Gujarat’s first phase voting on 89 assembly seats of Saurashtra and South Gujarat registered substantially low turnout this time. #GujaratElections

High point of my Gujarat tour: the creamy Irani chai in Lucky’s Tea Stall in Ahmedabad, where an original MF Husain hangs on the wall — a gift from the master himself who often came here for his chai! This one is a must do. #GujaratElection2022 #GujaratAssemblyPolls

The brave journalism of @ravishndtv was given a fitting and undaunted platform by the remarkable and brave @PrannoyRoyNDTV and Radhika Roy. Those who uphold their integrity and the best journalistic standards in our harsh times deserve all the admiration they get.
Thank you very much to the Indus Book Club for this interaction 🙏2

The best thing about visiting Gujarat is meeting those who keep alive the spirit Gujarat was once renowned for —civility, passion for the arts and deep public commitments — Mallika Sarabhai, Reema Nanavaty and Mihir Bhatt ( daughter in law and son of the great Elaben Bhatt)
Thanks. So glad you liked it. Really enjoyed being with you all.…
Bucky’s Cafe in Ahmedabad. Where the food is outstanding, the design is green and trendy and there is amazing art on display too! A must visit in #Ahmedabad

No trip to Gujarat can be complete without a pilgrimage to the home of Gujarat’s greatest son and the greatest Indian: Sabarmati Ashram which #MahatmaGandhi founded in 1915, relocated here to the banks of the Sabarmati in 1917. #GujaratElection2022
Journo pals on the election trail. Fun to catch up with @ajay_umat today to swap our respective take-aways while travelling in #GujaratAssemblyPolls #GujaratElection2022
“My life is my message:” Gandhi. How many ‘leaders’ can say the same today? Sabarmati Ashram, Ahmedabad. #MahatmaGandhi

The @BJP4India is fighting every election, state and local, in the name of PM @narendramodi. This brings big wins for the party but local leaders are irrelevant and democracy ceases to deliver for citizens at the local level. My oped in @timesofindia . #GujaratElection2022
Every election in India, state or even local body, is now a national election. Voters vote for a “supremo” who wins big, but the voter loses out. My oped today in @timesofindia #GujaratElection2022
The #GujaratElection2022 may be a state poll but @BJP4India fighting it entirely in the name of PM @narendramodi. When national leaders & “supremos” fight local polls, parties win big, but citizens lose as democracy stops delivering at the local level. My oped in @timesofindia
Greetings, people of Gujarat. Since poll fever is upon you, I have come to humbly gauge your temperature 🙏#GujaratAssemblypolls20222q

“Taught a lesson?” Is this then an admission by India’s Home Minister that state power was used in the Gujarat riots of 2002 to attack people? Not only rioters, innocent citizens were killed in those barbaric riots. #GujaratElection2022…
