But Can He Fight The Good Fight?

‘I never met Sadhvi Pragya or Col Purohit’, says Rajnath Singh in his interview. I’d say that at Adarsh Vidya Mandir and Saraswati Shishu Mandir (schools the colonel is associated with), ‘How to Lie With a Straight Face’ would be required reading.

Say Hello

Let’s suppose Rajnath Singh (I never met Sadhvi..., Feb 4), did meet Sadhvi Pragya. That still doesn't make him a Hindu terrorist. If meeting someone were the criterion, so many political leaders of Kerala would count as terrorists, for they have all made a beeline for Abdul Nasser Madani.

>>>> Congress leader Digvijay Singh says you went to meet Sadhvi Pragya and Col Purohit, both accused of involvement in terrorist activities, in jail.
>> I never met them, either in jail or outside.

  I am sure, what Mr. Singh means is, that he doesn't feel in any way, negative about it.

Panini Anand is a Marxist. Confirmed this on his facebook page.
Remind me to taunt him in every forthcoming piece of his.

IN TV interviews Mr.Singh has said that he didn't GO TO MEET SADHVI PRAGYA.
And he always spoke in Hindi.
Is this a case of wrong translation? Because he admits that he shared a stage with Pragya Thakur but didn't necessarily meet her in most TV interviews.
Sharing a stage and sharing a viewpoint or a worldview are two different things. Modi and Nitish have also shared stages.

 Panini Anand >> Is Modi a liability or an asset for the next general elections?

Answer - Modi is an asset to the nation and CM (Common Man)s of this nation who want India to be a better place to live..

Modi is a liability for feudal,, elitist marxist rabblerousers who work 24 by 7 to inflame passions on non existent issues and create a hollow agenda of hate against the enterprising non feudal Indians.

You (panini anand) being a professional marxist should obviously dislike NaMo..

Who is lying: Rajnath Singh or photo?

I have two photographs (1989) with me and Rajiv Gandhi - one shaking hands (while standing in a reception line) and the other standing nearby while he gave a speech. I also have a photograph (1968) with Indira Gandhi. To translate these into "Rajiv (or Indira) met me" is far fetched.

I think the accusation was not that Rajnath Singh has been seen in the vicinity of Pragya, but that he visited her in prison - two things which are quite different.

 Photo given by Faruki simply shows that RajNath Singh was with CM of MP and his wife where Sadvi Prgya too came or already had come but that does not show the meeting took place in an Jail where CM ,his wife and Rajnath Singh met Pagya Sadvi in Jail.

That exposes another lie of  Yuv Raj Guru Digvijay ji  Jhoot Maharaj .

Any way ity will be good proof for BJP to expose the manufactured lies of Secus in next Elections .

Rajnath Singh said in the interview, "I Never Met Sadhvi Pragya Or Col Purohit".  The photograph shows five people in a room sitting close together with Sadhvi sitting on a bed and Rajnath Singh sitting on a chair right next to the bed. BTW, congratulations to you for being photographed with VIP's like Indira and Rajiv.

Doggy Singh.

>> I have two photographs

Rajnath claiming that he never met Pragya, when he clearly did is strange, and stupid. Wonder why he would say so, when he clearly did meet her, and the question specifically was about him meeting Pragya in the jail. If he said so, he is clearly lying.

Meeting her outside, when she was not an accused is no big deal. After all Dilip Kumar has been photographed with Dawood. I do wonder if he made the exact statement, or the journalist took some "translation" liberties.

Can Outlook post the video of the conversation? I'm assuming it would exist, in this day and age.

@Bonita: Good point! It is exactly my point. Being photographed with someone and actually agreeing with or even 'meeting' them can often be different things.
Rajnath seems like a typical conservative low profile man who has been picked for a clean image as opposed to gadkari with his puerile "Main Mard Aadmi Hoon" comments.

@Whatsinaname: Everyone in Bollywood that existed in the 80s and early 90s has been photographed with Dawood. And Dilip Kumar has been photographed with Bal Thackeray as well.
Well said!

Forget all that. The following picture has our Home Minister with the Chief of that organization which he says runs terrorist camps.

Narendra Modi is the only candidate in BJP now , who will now on his shoulders carry the whole burden of getting Party`s win in ensued General Elections-2014. Except him there appears no one whose personality and deeds could convince the voters to elect him (other than Modi) BJP Brigade can of course stand behind him and people would vote them also just for the sake that NM can go forward to Delhi  only when BJP secures adequate number of seats in Lok Sabha. One hopes,party chief understands well and this would be the only strategy of BJP. The other allies of NDA would be no where if they continue indulging in in-fight and unreasonably oppose Modi.

Looks like a perfect mole of Congress from UP!!! He ensured Congress in coming back to power in 2009 and now he is going to ensure the same this time as well. No hope for BJP, He is not even raising temper in Parliament opposing corrupt (dynasty party) Congress enough and opposing all their moves.

He will make sure that EVM gets tampered like last time and he will get his portion of the Congress loot.
