Bengaluru, Dec 03: The crucial by-elections will be held in Karnataka on December 5. The elections are important and would decide the fate of the B S Yediyurappa government, which managed to win a trust vote owing to lower numbers in the Karnataka Legislative Assembly.
The elections became necessary after 14 Congress and 3 JD(S) MLAs resigned and were later disqualified.
There is a close eye being kept on the 3 JD(S) rebels who had joined the Congress ahead of the Karnataka assembly elections. The question is will they be given a Cabinet berth or a portfolio in the H D Kumaraswamy led JD(S)-Congress government.
New Delhi, Feb 23: Being in the army is never easy especially if the posting is at Jammu and Kashmir. As the brave soldiers battled terrorists for nearly 50 hours at Pampore, they had probably fought one of their toughest battles in recent times.
It was one thing to fight the terrorists for 50 hours and a whole other ball game facing the wrath of some local rebels who pelted stones at the soldiers apart from raising Azad Kashmir slogans.
