It’s All About Modi as India Prepares for Mammoth 2019 Election

It’s All About Modi as India Prepares for Mammoth 2019 Election Four-and-a-half years after crushing the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty’s latest scion as he swept to victory, Modi still cultivates his image as a diligent, incorruptible son-of-a-tea-seller who strives to make India a prouder, more powerful country. BJP leaders expect to triumph by focusing the campaign on Modi versus opposition leader Rahul Gandhi and by zeroing in on religious issues—including a controversial temple—that will consolidate India’s majority Hindu voters, said a senior BJP official who asked not to be named discussing strategy.


Turkey to launch operation against U.S.-backed Kurds in Syria 'in a few days'

Turkey to launch operation against U.S.-backed Kurds in Syria 'in a few days' Ankara and Washington have long been at odds over Syria, where the United States has backed the YPG Kurdish militia in the fight against Islamic State insurgents. Turkey says the YPG is a terrorist organization and an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which has waged an insurgency against the state in southeastern Turkey for 34 years. Turkey has already intervened to sweep YPG fighters from territory west of the Euphrates in military campaigns over the past two years, but up until now, it had not gone east of the river - partly to avoid direct confrontation with U.S. forces.
