It`s exciting times in Tamil Nadu as politics has finally made its entry into `Thalaivar` Rajinikanth`s life. The Superstar made his political announcement during the fans meet in Chennai on December 31. As soon as the announcement, Tamil Nadu went into a frenzy. Meanwhile, the leaders of AIADMK and DMK welcomed the Thalaivar`s entry but in their minds, the plants of seeds have already been sown. Beware corrupt netas and officers, the leader of the masses has made his political `Vanakkam`
2017 has been a remarkable year for politicians. In 2017 we saw the BJP election-winning machine continuing its `Ashwamedh` while the Congress party was slowly making a comeback. With 2018 now on the horizon, we have a lot of things to look up to. A rejuvenated Rahul Gandhi, who is also the Congress President now, has shown the world that he can deliver when it matters. But, the big question is, what does 2018 has in store for us? Will Modi reaffirm his position as the unassailable leader of the country? Is Rahul Gandhi again flattering to deceive us? Well, let`s wait and watch the drama unfold!
The Congress, strengthened by a rejuvenated Rahul Gandhi and its new youthful allies in Hardik, Alpesh and Jignesh, put up a brave fight against the BJP. Despite their bravado, they were unable to topple the seasoned political duo of Narendra Modi and Amit Shah. Not only did the BJP win Gujarat for the 6th time, but they also increased their vote share in the state as well. So, the BJP`s political juggernaut of BJP cruises to yet another victory and takes their tally to 19 states in the country.
Finally, Rahul Gandhi has been crowned as the new Congress President, unopposed, except one Shehzad Poonnawalla`s dissenting chants which fell on deaf ears. Rahul Gandhi`s ascension once again underlines the Gandhi dynasty`s supremacy and predominance in the Grand Old Party. However, the million dollar question is, can a rejuvenated Gandhi scion drag the party out from shambles and into greatness, yet again?
Mukul Roy, who recently joined the Bharatiya Janata Party, claimed that he was proud t work under Prime Minister Modi. But, will Mukul Roy, who is facing a CBI enquiry in the Saradha chit fund scam, be a boon or bane for the BJP?
