You are missing one crucial detail. It is important one understand that to understand the nuances and how politicking goes on in real world and not some "i voted for x, i want y dammit".SSundar wrote: ↑Thu Mar 29, 2018 6:19 pmThe benchmark for Modi is the Jallikkattu case in TN. From 2007 to 2014, the same Judge (in HC and then later in SC), the same players in PETA and the UPA GoI twisted and nullified the effect of all remedies the Center could come up with to revive Jallikkattu. They even countered Modi's first attempt to enable it. Finally, Tamils all over the world united in protest and first put the fear of a massive protest into the minds of SC, PETA and Congi/DMK. THEN, Modi invited EPS to Delhi and had his team advise EPS on a TN ordinance that SC/PETA/Congis/DMK could not rise up to challenge. Long struggle but a clear solution.
If Art370, RJB, RTE, LAB, etc. would reach such a strong conclusion, I am all for waiting longer.
The downside though is that the BIF were able to convince a sizable number of Tamils that Modi was more culpable in the delays than the entire rest of the ecosystem. I see some AAPtards spreading that canard in WhatsApp groups even today. So, Modi does risk his reputation being muddied when he delays things that long.
Let me take you to 2016. A full YEAR before the marina protests and the JK admission that the poraalis are so proud of and the political parties are so proud to take credit.
2016 Jan - modi govt bring notification. anti JK lobby moves court and court shoots it down.
N. Sitaraman proposes state ordinance route in Jan 2016 itself.
The exact same thing that OPS eventually did in 2017 to get JK legally admitted.
Proof? Note the date on this

JJ simple chose not to pursue that - because her strategy at that time was to let modi govt get all the blame, and she wanted to dangle her cooperation in return for some relief in her cases.Finding itself in no position to bring in an ordinance to legalize Jallikattu, after the Supreme Court declined to vacate its stay on the notification issued by the ministry of environment and forests to lift the ban on the traditional bull sport in Tamil Nadu, the Centre on Wednesday passed the buck on to the state government saying it was constitutionally empowered to promulgate an ordinance. Chief minister J Jayalalithaa had on Tuesday addressed a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting the Centre to issue an ordinance.
Putting the ball in the state's court, Union commerce minister Nirmala Sitharaman said if Tamil Nadu gets an ordinance promulgated, the Centre would back it.
She did this not only for JK, but also for NEET , she blocked all steps taken by mafoi pandiarajan - the education minister to help TN students adopt NEET. She blocked crop insurance of center and did not pay premium.
This is how JJ, a close "friend" of modi, a "natural ally", an "openly hindu and nationalist" person propped as alternative to anti-hindu and separatist DMK etc...behaved..and got away with it as long as she was in power.
even the so called well-read, all-knowing and good intentioned people of brf/bgr don't know how politicians can put roadblocks in the agenda..even when it comes at cost of their own constituency, because our people are so dumb and can be easily misled and diverted.
so, even after all the work it did for JK, BJP has ZERO goodwill from TN on JK. that's the power of political propaganda.
