With the Supreme Court expected to deliver its verdict in the Ayodhya case in the next few days, the Congress Working Committee will meet on Sunday to discuss the party’s political strategy. The party is preparing its strategy early, unlike in other instances in recent past. The CWC meeting to decide the line on the government’s Kashmir gambit was held after Parliament had given its nod to scrapping of J&K’s special status. It is to be seen whether the issue of electing a new Congress president will also come up for discussion, as Sonia Gandhi’s appointment by CWC in August was an interim arrangement.
While the Shiv Sena is going all guns blazing in its attempt to lead the government formation in Maharashtra, a tweet by party leader Priyanka Chaturvedi may have left the Sena’s online warriors a jot embarrassed. Chaturvedi, former Congress spokesperson who switched camps a few months ago, tweeted a map to make a point that most tweets with the hashtag “Maharashtra Needs Devendra” (as CM) originated elsewhere. “If Maharashtra needs him as the CM why are large volume of tweets from places outside of Maharashtra? Popular CM in Delhi, Dhaka and Dubai?” she asked. It was not her comments, however, but the map that raised eyebrows. The map did not show Jammu and Kashmir fully — the PoK was missing.

He wondered jokingly whether there was a difference in the pollution levels on the two sides of the same space.
