Dive In

We were discussing about the party at the guest house in Agartala when he (Amit Shah) was the national president. Someone from among us pointed out to Amit-ji that BJP was doing well in the country... In response, Amit Shah said there is still Sri Lanka... Nepal is left. We have to take the party there… we have to win there also. That is his mindset, to take the party across the world. Under him BJP became the largest political party in the world, bigger than the bigger communist party.

That’s Tripura chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb who shared this surprising plan for global domination in a “pep talk” with party workers. After the clip set off a political kerfuffle, the state BJP spokesperson defended Deb’s remarks, saying: “The capitalists and the communists cannot ensure peace and development. We can do it with our ideology and spiritual bent of mind. BJP-led India can be a margdarshak (guide).”

Big Story

The great ‘toolkit’ conspiracy (theory)

The TLDR: The Delhi police expanded its list of wanted suspects in the toolkit case to include two other activists—amid growing outrage over Disha Ravi’s arrest. As legal experts raised new questions about its legality, the police set out its theory of the crime—which now involves a Zoom meeting with Canada-based Poetic Justice Foundation and a WhatsApp chat with Greta Thunberg.
