BJP zero in work but hero in polls: Shiv Sena

first_imgDubbing its ally the BJP as “zero in work but a hero” in polls, the Shiv Sena on Monday said it won’t put the blame on “faulty EVMs” for its defeat in the recent civic polls in Maharashtra.“There was a time when the Congress used to win every election. They were zero in work but hero in polls. Similar is the case with the BJP today,” an editorial in Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ said.On Friday, the BJP emerged victorious in Latur and Chandrapur municipal corporations, out of three civic bodies that went to polls on April 19. The Congress emerged as the single largest party in Parbhani municipal corporation.The Sena held six seats in the outgoing House of Latur, but could not even open its account this time around.However, it said that despite the loss it will not blame the EVMs to be faulty, unlike the opposition parties.“This time, the Sena was unable to even open its account. We will not blame faulty EVMs for the BJP’s resounding victory but a research should be done as to why people are getting swept and farmers and youth are rallying behind the the BJP like a snake does behind a snake charmer,” the Sena said.It said that the BJP’s win in the recent polls is due to the inefficiency of the Congress.“On top of it, the victory is guaranteed when you have the entire state machinery and help of Sangh (RSS) members,” the Sena said.“This is the season of the BJP’s victory and will continue for some more time,” it noted.“(Prime Minister) Narendra Modi at the Centre and (Chief Minister) Devendra Fadnavis in Maharashtra are experimenting with new tricks everyday.“They will continue to win until people get bored of these experiments, and others, despite they doing their work seriously, will only continue to face defeats,” the Sena said.In the elections to the 10 municipal corporations across the state held in February this year, the BJP won eight civic bodies. The party also made inroads into the hinterland in the elections for 25 zilla parishads.last_img read more

Peertopeer sharing company BitTorrent has taken

first_imgPeer-to-peer sharing company BitTorrent has taken the surprising step of launching an original online drama series that puts it in competition with the likes of Netflix and Amazon.The platform behind the BitTorrentprotocol is best known for allowing users to transfer huge amounts of data over the internet, which has lead various legal issues over illegal file-sharing of media content.However, the firm is now seeking to be seen as a legal distributor of premium content, and has launched its first original web series, according to AdWeek.Children of the Machine is an eight-episode sci-fi from Marco Weber (Igby Goes Down) and takes place in a futuristic society in which androids rule over humans.The male-skewed series, targeted at the largely-male BitTorrent user base, will be available via BitTorrent Bundle, a service that allows IP owners and artists to release content direct to market.The pilot and an ad-supported version of the show will be available for free, with a US$4.95 version skipping theads. For US$9.95 users will receive the series plus bonus content.Six weeks after the pilot is released, the rest of the series will be made available at once, a la the Netflix ‘binge’ model.“This is a science fiction show catered to the typical tech-savvy, male-dominated audience,” said Weber. “We’re not trying to launch a romantic comedy, so the concept of this show moved us toward BitTorrent.”IP owners using BitTorrent bundle gain 90% of the sales revenue, as well as data on the downloaders. There are more than two million legally licensed pieces of content on the site, according to AdWeek.last_img read more
