According to wiki, Udhampur (City and district) has population of According to the 2011 Indian census, Udhampur has a population of 1,82,778. Males constitute 66% of the population and females 34%. The large male percentage is due to the army constituting a large part of the city’s population. Udhampur has an average literacy rate of 88%, higher than the national average of 59.5%: male literacy is 89%, and female literacy is 75%. In Udhampur, 13% of the population is under 6 years of age.About 74% of the population practices Hinduism,followed by Islam 25 % and about 1% population is Sikh. Military base is important to the local economy. Indian military is secular, translated as not Hindu. Modi’s divisive politics, cannot work in Udhampur. One more thing, Modi’s promise to pour more money in Udhampur, need not necessarily amount to help to the citizens-directly. He may throw numbers at his detractors, which, in my opinion, may be money spent on military needs. Media is less than honest. A picture of Modi. What about a close up of his vast BJP party followers? Size of the rally or rallies? Transportation provided by BJP chartered buses, tractor trailers, private cars and taxies. People walking to the rally? Ratio of male, female and children? The whole article says less than nothing. Shame on media. …and I am Sid Harth

Jayant Sinha, a junior finance minister in Modi cabinet said that the government is considering a proposal to reduced their stake in state-run banks to 52% Still a majority stake. Modi promised transparency, as his unstable government’s economic policy (sic) is hobbling like a drunken sailor. By the way, what is Modi’s economic policy, or for that matter, defense policy, foreign policy, education policy, insurance policy, both life (pun intended) and business-of-chalta-hai? That man talks too much. His junior ministers come forward and make mess of Modi’s shine. By the way, what is Modi doing in Kashmir? If I am not mistaken, Modi is the prime minister, not a political campaign in chief. Modi’s vulgar remarks about MMS never visited Kashmir and in comparison, he, Modi makes regular cisits is less than honorable. How many times Modi visited Kolkata, Chennai and Singhbhoom? What has his visit to strange places outside countries, like Japan and Australia, not to forget, New York, NY to do with running his government? Modi is a reckless marauder, loose-goose, hunting for what? votes in Japan or Australia? Nothing new. Modi leaves for destinations unknown and yells and screams against his sworn enemies, Congress party. The party has reduced to ashes. We know that. Not Modi. Talk about dynastic politics. BJP issued ticket to the incoming Congress and NCP candidates, with a mother load of dynastic politics. When it comes to lying and cheating, Modi takes the cake. …and I am Sid Harth

Did Modi say, ‘emotional blackmailing?’ Modi is a thug. Modi and his ‘M’ brigade (‘M’ for monkey, not Modi) go around on the comments/discussion platforms and do what? Pour venom. Does Modi accept such non government contributions? AMU warns Smriti Irani of communal unrest at campus; BJP calls letter unfortunate by FP Staff Nov 28, 2014 14:20 IST A fresh controversy is brewing in the Aligarh Muslim University. The University has written to Education Minister Smriti Irani warning of a potential “communal conflagration” in the campus over an event planned by local BJP activists on Monday. According to this report in the DNA, the BJP slammed the vice-chancellor’s opposition and called the incident ‘unfortunate.’ BJP national spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao speaking to a news agency said that maintaining secularism at an university of AMU’s stature is responsibility of the top authorities. “Why do they have to worry about communal flare up for just remembering somebody who had made significant contribution to this university? It is highly unfortunate; maintaining the secular character of the university is the responsibility of all the authorities. I think better sense will prevail and celebrations will happen as scheduled,” Rao was quoted as saying by DNA. BJP had asked the university to celebrate the birth anniversary of Raja Mahendra Pratap, a freedom fighter, who according to them had donated land to AMU. Rao added that the freedom fighter was even an alumnus of Aligarh Muslim University. Meanwhile, speaking to the media Smriti Irani said she had not received any letter from the AMU V-C till 9 pm — when she left office on Thursday. The minister was quoted as saying by Zee News: “I received no such letter and I can only react to contents once I read them and I receive a letter.” Aligarh Muslim University Vice Chancellor Lt Gen Zameer Uddin Shah.

Image from AMU website In a sharply-worded letter, the university’s Vice-Chancellor Lt Gen Zameer Uddin Shah has opposed the local BJP unit’s plan to mark the birth anniversary of the freedom fighter within the campus. According to reports, the Vice-Chancellor Zameer-ud-Din Shah and the leaders of BJP and student wing ABVP met on Thursday in what was described as an attempt to defuse the situation. Shah alleged that while the university had asked the BJP to shift its celebrations to a patch of land donated by the legendary freedom fighter near the campus, the party’s activists had insisted on a venue within the campus. “The majority of AMU students are annoyed with this intransigence,” he told in his letter to Irani, reported NDTV. The Vice Chancellor also said that a rival political party has announced that they would not allow the event. “AMU does not want to get involved in politics and the University needs your earnest support urgently as there is a serious threat to law and order,”
