  • "The Rajya Sabha is about checks and balances. This is absolutely essential for our democracy. Debates have to be many and effective. But, there is also a difference between checking and clogging (and between) balance and blocking," he said. Modi also lauded NCP and the BJD for never rushing to the well of the House to raise their issues.

    Soren is leading the opposition alliance comprising the JMM, the Congress and the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD). According to the alliance's seat-sharing arrangement, the JMM will contest 43 seats, Congress 31 and RJD in seven constituencies.

    In a departure from convention, the Rajya Sabha on Monday allowed leaders of various political parties to speak and pay tributes to five late members, including former finance minister Arun Jaitley.

    Javadekar, who was in Ranchi to inaugurate the BJP's media centre, said the saffron party has been successful in establishing a stable and development-oriented government in the state during the last five years. "The BJP would get the full faith of the people during the upcoming assembly elections purely on the grounds of development," said the Minister.

    Shiv Sena needs to guard against any perceived surrender of its sovereignty.

    Jharkhand will vote in five phases, with the first on November 30 and the last on December 20. Results will be declared on December 23. The five candidates are from seats that will go to polls in the first phase on November 30. November 13 is the last date of filing nominations.

    The 14 MLAs who quit from Congress and the three from the Janata Dal (Secular) last July, leading to the fall of the JD(S)-Congress government, may have reasons other than pure disagreement and/or disenchantment with the way their own parties were going about governing and such things. Now, it’s for the bypolls on December 5, to decide the fate of the 17.

    The Supreme Court is set to pass the judgement on disqualification of 17 Karnataka MLAs by the previous Assembly Speaker. The bench comprising Justices NV Ramana, Sanjiv Khanna and Krishna Murari will now be listing the disqualification case for judgement while the plea seeking postponement of the by-election is expected to become infructuous.

    A single-minded desire to keep BJP out will have consequences for both Congress and Shiv Sena.

    The MLAs attempted to move the apex court praying for postponement of the December 5 byelection to 15 Assembly seats. Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for the disqualified lawmakers, prayed before the three-judge bench headed by Justice NV Ramana to direct the Election Commission to postpone the bypolls till the court decides the case.

    A leaked audio tape allegedly shows Karnataka CM BS Yediyurappa "poaching" MLAs to overthrow the JD(S)-Congress coalition regime. But the SC refused to hear Congress' plea, saying it wasn't necessary to allow another round of arguments.

    Sena leaders met the governor ahead of Congress-NCP delegation’s audience with him on Tuesday to urge him to expedite process of ministry formation as Maharashtra had several issues which needed the attention of an elected government. A day after the Pawar-Sonia meeting in Delhi, NCP also asked Sena to start the process of disengaging from BJP.
