Oldest MP retires after seven decades in politics — www.thehindu.com
Rishang Keishing, 94, India’s oldest parliamentarian, has called it a day. There was no farewell handshake from his fellow MPs from the Rajya Sabha, the chairperson or other employees although everybody knew that they would perhaps not see him again. He boarded his waiting car and silently left for his residence on Wednesday.Mr. Keishing has had a chequered political career, getting elected four times to Parliament, twice to the Rajya Sabha. A heavyweight in Manipur politics, he worked and manoeuvred his way to become the Chief Minister four times though he could not complete any of them, as in those days there was no anti-defection law and MLAs used to change parties for loaves and fishes.

Narendra Modi to step up intensity of campaigning in UP and Bihar — economictimes.indiatimes.com
After that a 3D holographic avatar of Modi will hit the campaign trail, similar to what Modi did in the assembly polls in Gujarat in late 2012. It will be called the Namo ko Pradhan Mantri Banao Yatra with the slogan Har Har Modi, Ghar Ghar Modi. However, Modi will hold more rallies in Bihar through March.

He later clarifies that it is a figure of speech for an incompetent man. Forgetting that their current representative acting as the prime minister of this country has bigger problems when it comes to similar type of impotency.In any case... Rahul Baba has commented on the issue and he said that such language is not appreciated.Don’t appreciate such language: Rahul Gandhi on Khurshid’s ‘impotent’ Modi jibe - The Times of India
"I do not appreciate this kind of language," Gandhi told the media.Other Congress leaders also said that the party does not support the use of such language."Congress party does not support the use of such language. Congress leaders should not use such language as this is the language of BJP. What Rahul Gandhi said is right," said minister of state for parliamentary affairs Rajiv Shukla.
So it is a language of BJP spoken by a senior Congress politician. Maybe it is time to ask him to leave the party and join BJP.

http://www.ndtv.com/elections/article/election-2014/jayalalithaa-s-alliance-with-left-almost-over-say-sources-491758?pfrom=home-otherstories
Less than a fortnight after 11 parties stitched up a third front to take on the Congress and the BJP in the general elections beginning next month, it is coming apart at the seams with J Jayalalithaa refusing to give in to ally Left's demand for six seats in a seat-sharing pact in Tamil Nadu.
The Tamil Nadu chief minister has told the CPM and CPI that she is willing to give them only a seat apiece to contest in her state. The Left parties had in February announced that they were extending to this year's elections, their alliance with her
When leaders of 11 regional parties met in Delhi on February 25 to announce the alternative front being mentored by the Left, Ms Jayalalithaa did not attend. She sent a representative.
Cracks were visible even as leaders like Mulayam Singh Yadav of the Samajwadi Party and Nitish Kumar of the Janata Dal (United) put up a show of strength.
Naveen Patnaik's Biju Janata Dal, or the BJD, and the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) skipped the meeting.
Ms Jayalalithaa, like many other constituents of that front, has prime ministerial ambitions.
Third front should be called as Joker's Front :D

I think the third front is nothing but a bunch of parties that are willing to be bought by any group (UPA or NDA) who want to form the govt.

o bhai, Arvind Kejriwal has signed this petition yesterday and agreed 100% to this debate, he said to this petition that he is ready to come at Modi s time and place for debate. But Modi won t accept coz he is a One Way Communication PR Product, he loses all health in 2 way communication. Won't agree. And Rahul Gandhi, mother Sonia Vinci wont allow him.
