The Samajwadi Party has decided to extend the term of its national president from existing three to five years, allowing former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav to fasten his grip over the party. The move will mean that the party will face the 2019 Lok Sabha election and the 2022 assembly election under the leadership of Akhilesh. The 44-year-old alumnus of University of Sydney will be re-elected to the party’s top post during a convention of the Samajwadi Party in Agra on October 4-5.
The BJP has declared its mission for 2019: winning more than 350 out of 543 Lok Sabha seats for Narendra Modi. That is a tall order, but its president Amit Shah believes it is within the realm of possibility. Shah is currently on a 110-day-long nationwide tour to connect with party’s booth-level workers and set out specific targets for party leaders for the next general election to the Lok Sabha.
Amit Shah won, and lost. He won for himself a Rajya Sabha seat from Gujarat, making his debut as a parliamentarian. On the day he completed three years as Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief, Shah lost on his home turf the reputation of a leader who knows the art of winning even the hardest of political battles.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
