    'Modi tea' party begins today in State
    Bangalore, Jan 31, 2014, DHNS :

    One can sip ‘Modi Tea’ in parts of the State including in Bangalore from Saturday. The stalls are not just going to offer a hot cup of ‘chai’ for free to passersby, but also serve as campaign centres for the party candidates for the Lok Sabha elections.

    On Saturday, Bangalore South candidate and MP H N Ananth Kumar will begin his door-to-door visit as part of the ‘Mane Manege BJP’ (BJP - house to house), in Bapujinagar and surrounding areas. He is also going to inaugurate a couple of tea stalls, put up by the party Yuva Morcha and NaMo Brigade.

    “We are driving home a point that the Congress can’t humiliate Modi because he used to sell tea. We will show that no vocation is inferior,” said Ashwathnarayan, BJP MLC.

    He said on Saturday, the stalls will be operational at KHB Colony, Magadi Road bus stand and Chandra Layout. On every Sunday from February 2, a tea stall will be opened near Lal Bagh West Gate, till the elections are over. On February 8, the party will hold a ‘Chai par churcha’ (discussion over tea) to interact with the public, Ashwathnarayan said.

    Manifesto

    Mahila Morcha of the State BJP on Friday launched “Your Voice Our Manifesto” at the Malleswaram side entrance of Sankey tank. Office-bearers and members of the morcha distributed pamphlets in both Kannada and English to the public to give their views on what they considered major issues.

    They were asked to make suggestions for a “better India” and what can be done for the “betterment of their constituency”. The inputs will be compiled to come out with constituency specific manifestoes for all the 28 Lok Sabha segments in the State.

    At 'Modi chai' event in Bangalore, late tea and few takers | NDTV.com

    Narendra Modi will begin his 'chai pe charcha' campaign on Wednesday, but the BJP has already been organising "Modi chai" events to highlight the modest origins of its prime ministerial candidate, who sold tea on trains as a young boy.

    At these meetings, the BJP distributes chai or tea to members of the public. More than 100 are planned in Bangalore. At event number 39, held in the upmarket area next to Sankey Tank, things were overall lukewarm.

    The tea arrived late, and the public response wasn't exactly impressive. The party workers there however remained resolutely upbeat. Even grateful, tongue firmly in cheek, to Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar, who earned much opprobrium last month when he made a comment about Mr Modi's origin as a tea-boy, provoking the BJP's campaign.

    "We are very thankful to Mani Shankar Aiyer. He has given us a new challenge - we are in an era that we still can't believe that people talk like this. We have taken this as a challenge to reach out to people that even a chai-wala can become the next prime minister," said Sapthagiri Gowda, who heads the BJP Yuva Morcha in Bangalore City.

    The party's MLA from Malleswaram, Ashwath Narayan, said, "Any person in this democratic set up gets an opportunity to become prime minister. Insulting a person because of his profession does not go down well."

    At Sankey Tank, walkers and joggers who emerged from a park in the area were offered tea. An elderly man sipped from his cup and observed, "It is nice - it is very good. Narendra Modi is the right man."

    Another young man, sweating after his jog, said, "They should be giving some fruit juice!"
    Mr Modi as prime minister might not be everybody's cup of tea - the BJP did fare badly in the Karnataka's assembly elections last year despite his campaign - but his party is doing its utmost to make the idea more palatable in Bangalore.

    BJP may field no woman this LS poll in State

    Bangalore, Feb 10, 2014, DHNS:
    Only woman aspirant in the party, Shobha may not get ticket

    The State BJP may draw a blank when it comes to giving tickets to women candidates for the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls.

    The only woman aspirant Shobha Karandlaje on Monday reiterated that she is not willing to contest from any other constituency than Bangalore North. However, sources said the party leadership is unlikely to heed her demand as the fight for candidature in Bangalore North has boiled down to former chief minister D V Sadananda Gowda and former deputy chief minister R Ashoka.


    The BJP has been reserving 33 per cent of its seats for women for organisational posts, but has not been following the same norm during Assembly and Lok Sabha elections. In 2009, J Shantha was the lone woman to be given ticket by the BJP to contest the polls. She won from the Bellary Lok Sabha constituency.

    Speaking to reporters, BJP Mahila Morcha State president Shashikala Jolle, MLA, said that women candidates should be given preference and they did not lack winnability factor.She said the Mahila Morcha had sought more tickets from the central and State leadership for women in the Lok Sabha polls.

    When it was pointed out that the candidate selection process had almost been completed, Jolle expressed confidence that more representation would be given to women when the party releases its final list. The morcha held its executive committee meeting on Monday.

    It would be great if MODI wins... it would be a really TIGHT SLAP on the face of shameless arrogant Manishankar the Congress Dog. After MODI wins this Manishankar would be hired to sell tea outside MODI's office.

    Cong attacks BJP over 'chai pe charcha with NaMo' programme - The Times of India

    NEW DELHI: Attacking Narendra Modi over his much-hyped tea stall interaction programme, Congress on Thursday accused BJP and its prime ministerial candidate of hypocrisy, saying it had spent Rs 200 to 250 crore on the event but was opposing the Street Vendors Bill in Parliament.

    "An estimated sum of Rs 200 to 250 crore was spent on a programme of Modi. Could this money not be spent in a better manner to directly benefit the same people?

    "There is another contradiction and paradox. On the one hand, he is giving lectures to tea vendors. On the other hand, BJP and NDA obstructed the Street Vendors Bill in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday, which directly affects the working classes, including a large number of tea vendors. This exposes the real face of BJP," Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi told reporters at the AICC briefing.

    Milking 'chai wala' barb against him for all its worth, Modi on Wednesday interacted with the common man across 1,000 places through video, sipping tea and attacking Congress over governance and black money.

    At his interaction with people as part of the much-hyped 'Chai pe charcha with NaMo' (a discussion over tea with Modi), he answered to questions from the public from across the country on the theme of good governance.

    The Street Vendors (Protection of Livelihood and Regulation of Street Vending) Bill, 2013 has got a push after Rahul Gandhi's recent assurance that he would strive to see its passage in the current session.

    The bill was listed in Rajya Sabha both yesterday and today, but could not be taken up due to disruptions in the House.
