As the Karnataka Assembly elections near, top leaders of the national parties have started making a beeline to the state. On Wednesday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi are set to address the challenges their concerned parties are facing.
Opposition Congress is facing internal strife whereas the ruling BJP is encountering the wrath of its own party workers and Hindu activists.
Realizing that the challenges are grave and can prove disastrous for the respective political parties in the upcoming state elections scheduled less than eight months away, the party’s top leadership is trying to pacify and devise strategies.
Rahul Gandhi arrived here on Tuesday night and held a meeting to address the internal strife between warring factions of Siddaramaiah and state unit chief D.K. Shivakumar. According to party sources, Rahul Gandhi has clearly asked the leaders to go for elections under collective leadership.
Sources also said that Rahul Gandhi has given clear instructions to both Siddaramaiah and Shivakumar not to indulge in a competition that can benefit the BJP. Rahul Gandhi is also meeting Lingayat seer Shivamurthy Murugha Sharanaru in Chitradurga.
Later, Rahul Gandhi will address a gathering at a function to celebrate Siddaramaiah’s 75th birth anniversary. The party is looking forward to getting momentum with the massive convention in the state. Amit Shah will arrive in Bengaluru Wednesday late at night.
Though his itinerary does not include any political meetings, sources said that Amit Shah will take up the ground report and question the state leadership on the wrath of party workers and Hindu activists against the BJP.
The ruling BJP is facing the heat from the BJP workers following the murder of Yuva Morcha activist Praveen Kumar Nettare in the Dakshina Kannada district. The party workers had also laid siege at the residence of Home Minister Araga Jnanendra causing severe embarrassment to the state leadership.
Chhatriwali Movie Review: Rakul Preet Singh’s film is informative but lags in bits
I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
