Uddhav Thackeray: From wildlife photography to Maharashtra’s top job

By Subhro Majumder The youngest of Balasaheb Thackeray’s three sons, Uddhav Thackeray, now 59, was happy pursuing his passion for wildlife photography when the Shiv Sena-BJP government came to power for the first time in 1995. A quiet person by nature, whenever party workers urged him to deliver a speech, he would pass on the responsibility to his charismatic cousin Raj. However, when his eldest brother Bindumadhav died in a road accident in 1996, Thackeray came to stay with his father at Matoshree, where Smita Thackeray, wife of second brother Jaidev, called the shots. Thackeray’s interest in politics, began only in 1999 when the Sena-BJP lost to the Congress-Nationalist Congress Party combine. In the next five years, he emerged as Balasaheb’s chosen heir and was appointed executive president of the party in 2003. Thackeray may have been shy and soft-spoken, but had very clear…

Manohar Lal Khattar: The RSS Pracharak who became Chief Minister

By Kshvid News Desk with inputs from agencies Manohar Lal Khattar, the 65-year-old Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader – with deep roots in the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), first became the Chief Minister of Haryana in 2014. He wasn’t the face of the election then, and was chosen to lead the BJP in Haryana after the party’s handsome victory. The unconventional choice caused a flutter because the BJP of Amit Shah and Narendra Modi went for a non-Jat leader for a state whose politics had been shaped by the dominant Jat community for long. This poll season, however, the BJP goes to the hustings with Khattar as its unequivocal leader, whose ‘MaNo again’ war cry takes off from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s very successful campaign, ‘NaMo again’. From a leadership revolt to a violent Jat agitation to Dera Sacha Sauda stir, Khattar’s rule hasn’t been without formidable challenges. But as he rode through each crisis…

Himanta Biswa Sarma: The kingmaker of Northeast

By Subhro Majumder For BJP strongman Himanta Biswa Sarma, it is a long-cherished aspiration that has fructified.  As he dons the Assam chief minister’s mantle, the fierce campaigner, who is also the architect of the BJP’s success story in not just Assam but the entire Northeast and an able administrator, has finally come of age. Many in Assam were surprised that the BJP central leadership had to go through the motion of so many deliberations before naming a face that every Assamese, irrespective of ethnic background, relates to.  It has been a long wait for Sarma who was once the blue-eyed boy of three-time former Congress CM, the late Tarun Gogoi, and seen even within the Congress as a natural successor of Gogoi. The two had fallen out with each other following Gogoi’s US-educated son Gaurav’s emergence in Assam’s political landscape. It is history how the…

Arvind Kejriwal: The decade’s biggest political story

By Subhro Majumder When Arvind Kejriwal first made his mark in India’s public life, he was seen as a well-intentioned, sincere civil society activist, using the Right to Information Act to empower citizens. When Kejriwal truly became a visible public figure, as a leader of the India Against Corruption (IAC) movement, he was seen as an angry disruptor. He was channelling the fury that many felt at the infirmities and the corruption in the system; he was also providing a tangible solution by suggesting that having a strong Lokpal would tackle this systemic issue. When Kejriwal set up a political party, became chief minister, went on dharna, contested against Narendra Modi in Varanasi, and attempted to expand the party nationally, he was seen as a bit of an anarchist, whose ambitions far outstripped his party’s base and experience. He hunkered down, went back to…
