    In name of whichever god you follow, what kind of retardedness is this!

    If water is not dammed, most of it would flow into Ocean and there would be none available for irrigation. No irrigation means complete dependence on rains for agriculture and in any year when monsoon fails, whole country would starve or beg for food aid from USA, like it has done throughout the history before green revolution.

    Ignorant assertion. There were regular famines in India before Britishers arrived. Only thing that happened due to arrival of Britishers was increase in frequency of famines due to extortionist nature of Britishers: 15 famines of 200 years of British rule compared to 14 famines from 1000-1700AD (700 years).

    Before CE 1000, there were two major India wide famines, one of which is recorded even in Chinese Chronicles (650AD) and other coincided with a Universal famine of 879CE. These were major recorded famines. Minor/regional famines were so widespread that Kautilya/Chanakya gave detailed instruction about dealing with them in Arthashastra, and famines and droughts are regular feature in Vedic and Puranic literature with many tales woven around them.

    Worst famine in India was in 1661 when not a drop of rain fell in India for two years and Jhelum dried up at its very source.

    What kind of Luddite thinking is this! Any farmer owning more than 5 acres of land need Tractors to do agriculture efficiently, and cows/bulls do not produce remotely enough manure to fertilize whole farm, unless farm is so small that even cows/bulls become uneconomical.

    And no, going back to 1950s is not going to increase food production, provide security to farmers, or lower cost of food for consumers.


    In India, 26% are farmer, and 52% of population is engaged in Agriculture and allied activities in one capacity or another. Who in his right mind would advocate that more people should be corralled into Agriculture when it already employ more than it should?

    Supporters of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) wave their flags in celebration.
    NEW DELHI: Aside from a resounding victory in Delhi, the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) also made impressive gains in Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Assam and Rajasthan as the results of Sunday's by-election came in today.

    The saffron party won five of the six assembly seats up for grabs, while the Congress came in a close second with three seats in its kitty. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) emerged the biggest loser, as the BJP handed it a humiliating defeat in the Rajouri Garden assembly seat.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi hailed the BJP's "impressive performance" in the assembly bypolls and thanked the people for their "unwavering faith in politics of development and good governance".

    In the national capital, the BJP trounced AAP in the Rajouri Garden bypoll. Akali Dal candidate Manjinder Singh Sirsa, who fought the bypoll on a BJP ticket, won by a margin of more than 14,000 votes, while AAP candidate Harjeet Singh finished a distant third behind the Congress.

    Meanwhile in Karnataka, the ruling Congress put up a decent showing as it bucked anti-incumbency to retain its hold on two assembly seats.

    Congress' Kalale N Keshavamurthy defeated his nearest rival V Srinivas Prasad (BJP) by over 21,000 votes in Nanjangud.

    In Gundlupet, Geetha Mahadevaprasad (Congress) trounced BJP's C S Niranjan Kumar by over 10,000 votes, an election official said.

    In Madhya Pradesh, BJP retained the Bandhavgarh Assembly seat after defeating rival Congress by a margin of over 25,000 votes. BJP nominee Shivnarayan Singh defeated Congress' candidate Savitri Singh from the seat in Umaria district by 25,476 votes, an election official said.

    After a close-fought battle in Ater, Congress' Hemant Katare emerged victorious by polling 49,382 votes to BJP candidate Arvind Singh Bhadoria's 41,829 votes.

    In Himachal Pradesh, BJP candidate Dr Anil Dhiman won the Bhoranj (SC) Assembly seat by defeating Congress rival Promila Devi by 8,290 votes. With this victory, the BJP's bench strength has risen to 28 in the 68-member House.

    BJP's Shobha Rani Kushavah managed a comfortable win in Rajasthan's Dholpur assembly seat, securing 91,548 votes, or 61.79 per cent of the votes polled. Congress came in second, with nominee Banwari Lal Sharma finishing with 52,875 votes.


    Putting up a good showing in the northeastern state of Assam, BJP Ranoj Pegu candidate won the Dhemaji Assembly by-election with a margin of 9,285 votes over Congress nominee Babul Sonowal.




    In West Bengal's Kanthi Dakshin assembly seat, the ruling Trinamool Congresssecured a thumping victory. TMC candidate Chandrima Bhattacharya, who won 95,369 votes, defeated closest rival Sourindra Mohan Jana (BJP) by a handsome margin of 42,526 votes.

    The Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) was leading Jharkhand's Littipara assembly constituency with the counting of votes still underway.




    JMM's Simon Marandi was leading with 56,612 votes after 10 rounds of counting, while the ruling BJP's Hemlal Murmu had received 47,385 votes.

    Congress on its own no way .
    Nor I want to see collation government .
    BJP has to bring in universal basic income to target some part of BPL families next year , bring some social reforms and 1 event of the magnitude of surgical strike or demonization would be enough to secure majority .

    Original Post/Thread Starter.

    To be Honest, I don't see any person presently in INC who's capable of Leading INC or India.

    Not necessarily leading / PM candidates, but good politicians that should have more importance in the party. Just curious to get some names that could be interesting and worth reading about.

    My first Preference would have been Captain Amrinder Singh. He's a good orator & administrator.

    However, he's 75 now. Hence, not suggesting another one.

    Sachin Pilot: He Can be projected as a leader of the young generatio. Is a good orator & connect with People.

    He needs to come out of shadow of Pappu Gandhi.

    Seriously? None.

    The present leadership, including the so called 'young brigade', is so stuck up with kissing the nether regions of the Gandhi Family that they have made themselves adept at that work only.

    Recall the UPA-2. Dacoity like there is no tomorrow.
    But then, that is true in every political party

    I would recommend getting Dr.JaiPrakash Narayan of Lok Satta Party to head Congress,along with people like Bijayant Panda of BJD.
    As of now,there are all corrupt,faces in INC, all their politicians use Pseudo Secularism,when given a chance,sorry,we are fed up of this minority appeasement and vilifying the Majority,years of being under such influence,makes it a habit for them to continue the same old practices,"You cannot teach an old dog new tricks" And the only trick this The "One trick Pony" Congress party knows is, only one thing. Appeasement of minorities,Insult Hindus,promote proselytization ,Pseudo Secularism,scams,corruption Hindus will never consider it a party which will take care of their interests,they had 69 years,they squandered all those years in trying to browbeat the Majority demographic population of this country,Now the majority are giving the Congress their medicine,by making congress and all Secular parties lose their Deposits in Elections.It is time this party is done to death for good. Let other parties take the stage.Congress should die.
