Trying Time for Telangana...

Akbaruddin Owaisi’s appointment to the post led to furore in the state assembly as eight BJP MLAs refused to take oath administered by him. But this could just be a temporary state of affairs till the Speaker is elected

A Clone of the Lok Sabha?...

On June 10, 2022, biennial elections to the Rajya Sabha are scheduled to be held to replace 57 retiring members in 15 states. Political parties are busy lining up candidates for the seats falling vacant, based on their perception about whom they would like to reward.
