BJP will win in gujarat, modi assures party

Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday assured the BJP leadership that the saffron party will retain power in the state. Mr Modi, sources said, supported the party’s stand on the issue of FDI in multi-brand retail and suggested that the party should take up this issue more aggressively. Mr Modi also made a presentation about his state government’s achievements. Assembly polls in the BJP-ruled states of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh are likely to be held in November 2012.
Mr Modi, sources said, told party leaders at the first day of the BJP’s three-day-long conclave that Congress can “only dream of” coming to power in Gujarat as not only his state but the entire country has now realised that Congress’ rule means anti-people policies. He also criticised the Congress-led UPA government’s decision of capping subsidised LPG cylinders.
Mr Modi also criticised the Centre of “step-brotherly” treatment to the BJP-ruled states.
Sources disclosed, Mr Modi maintained that lakhs of cylinders will be saved if the Centre gives permission to Gujarat to send its gas pipelines to people’s homes.
The chief minister said while the state is all set to implement it, the Centre is “dilly dallying” on it.
He criticised the Centre for not allowing the state to lay gas pipelines, which he claimed will allow people to avail cheaper gas and also reduce the subsidy burden.
Regarding the coming Assembly polls in his state, Mr Modi said his slogan for the forthcoming polls will be “Sab ke saath, sab ka vikas (with everybody and for everybody’s progress)”.

I will not be a part of maha govt: supriya
Nashik (Maharashtra), Sept. 26: NCP MP and daughter of Union agriculture minister Sharad Pawar, Supriya Sule, on Wednesday ruled out the possibility of being part of the Maharashtra government, which plunged into crisis after the resignation of deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar.
“I will not accept any responsibility in the Maharashtra government as I am working with the Centre,” Ms Sule told reporters here scotching speculation of her entry into the Maharashtra Cabinet after her cousin quit on Tuesday.
Ms Sule, who was here to attend the Rashtravadi Congress Yuvati Melava, said, “Ajitdada followed his inner voice and quit... This is not staged... He has resigned from his post really.”
She also said that there was absolutely no threat to the Congress-NCP government as assured by her father and NCP president Sharad Pawar. — PTI

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
