sadanand dhume's post on 'india's incredibly shrunken presidency' says almost exactly the same thing as this, in slightly different words

see https://www.wsj.com/articles/indias-incredibly-shrunken-presidency-1500573655?tesla=y
which looks pretty much the same as this article written in slightly different words.

BJP has guts to propose a north Indian name for president
by chakr (View MyPage) on Jun 20, 2017 07:33 PM

BJP has guts to propose a north Indian name for president. All north Indians must hail the decision. North Indians and industrialists from North India should support BJP and work for the welfare of North Indians to improve their livelihood. North Indians brought freedom to India. They deserve a greater pie than self centered south Indians.

Why Ram nath is preffered over Sreedaran
by (View MyPage) on Jun 20, 2017 08:58 AM  | Hide replies

The Ranganath Misra commission had recommended 15% quota in government jobs for socially and economically backward sections among religious and linguistic minorities in India.

Kovind had opposed the commission’s report saying it wasn’t possible. He was quoted saying: “No, that is not possible. Including Musliims and Christians in the Scheduled Castes category will be unconstitutional."
When asked why Sikh Dalits were given quota privilege and not Muslims and Christians, he had said: “Islam and Christianity are alien to the nation."
Not that, he was the only one and the Misra Commission report was roundly criticised by BJP including erstwhile Gujarat CM Modi who had reached out to Dalits and backward classes and debunked the report on reservation for minorities.

DALIT DEFEATS THE HATER OF DALITS BHAGWAT
by newa (View MyPage) on Jun 19, 2017 05:23 PM

BHAGWAT CONVERTED INDIAN MENTALITY TO HATE DALITS AND PREACHED ANTI RESERVATION AND BUILT HIS VOTE BANK. MODI SHAH DID SAME BUT NOW THE SAME MODI-SHAH ELIMINATED THEIR BOSS IN ONE GO.

THIS DALIT DEFEATED THE SAME BHAGWAT WHO PREACHED HATING DALITS SINCE LAST 70 YEARS TO BECOME THEIR WHOLE AND SOLE BOSS.

HE DEFEATED STALEWARTS LIKE SHAH BHAGWAT ADVANI UMA JOSHI AND N NUMBER LIKE THEM AND GREAT JOB KEEP IT UP

MAKING THESE PEOPLE EAT FOOD AT YOUR HOUSE WAS ALSO A GREAT ACHIEVEMENT THEY STILL BRING THIER OWN FOOD AND THALI BUT YOU CAN MAKE THEM EAT THE FOOD ALSO NOW.

NOW WE CAN SAY 70 YEARS WORK GOT DONE IN 3 YEARS BITING THEM THE DUST OF DALITS

WHILE BHAGWAT MAY OR MAY NOT WIN IF MAHATMA GANDHI'S GRANDSON GETS ELECTED STILL AT LEAST HE FORCED THESE PEOPLE TO BITE THE DUST.

Rajeev Sreenivasan has
by piri (View MyPage) on Jun 19, 2017 06:58 AM

put forward the name of E.Sreedharan for President with all the forceful arguments he could manage.

He expects his party, the komaaaali party, to accept the suggestion and make the man President.

But..........if Mr Sreedharans name is not proposed by the BJP, Rajeev Sreenivasan would of course, slink away silently without a word !

People are suggesting MS Swaminathan's name. He is 92 now! Born in 1925. He deserved the post before - instead of Pratibha.

by Gaurav (View MyPage) on Jun 19, 2017 02:02 AM

Draupadi has not done anything great for India, there is no reason for her to be president.
