There is a gap of 75 In comes J/M/M offering their bag of 25 or maybe 30 seats They promise to bring in more ‘secular’ partners But on one condition: no Modi as prime minister Of the three aspirants Jayalalithaa is likely to get 30 seats or more as of now more than Mayawati or Mamata She may also be more acceptable to the BJP than the other two The scenario for Mayawati or Mamata is that the BJP

authoritarian than Modi but then all chief ministers are like that She has been a more successful Chief Minister of a prosperous state where the human development dimension is strong She has built no statues of herself or of her mentors all over the state Her Amma kitchens where people can get subsidised meals is the most imaginative idea that has been implemented since it does not give people raw food grains which is often of dubious quality as it comes from PDS shops but cooked food Giving prepared food is also gender friendly as it saves the woman in the house the trouble of cooking If only

banks into public ownership was to be able to access loans for the political parties mainly the ruling party loans which were unlikely to be repaid They were the classic non-performing assets of the bank I was told as much in clear terms by the retiring chairman of a PSU bank 10 years ago The Mallya episode should be the final straw which should inspire the NDA government to discipline the
