Close to five years after Rahul Gandhi was appointed Congress vice-president in Jaipur in January 2013, he will take on the top job in the party later this year, probably in November in Delhi, senior party sources told The Hindu. It will also be a year after he had told the party’s apex decision-making body, the Congress Working Committee (CWC), that he was ready and willing to be president.
In a telephonic interview, former Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar and chosen successor to RJD chief Lalu PrasadTejashwi Yadav speaks about the Opposition rally called by his father in Patna on Sunday and the possible shape of Opposition politics in the months ahead. Excerpts:With the BJP’s rise, the RSS and its sister organisations have set up systems to act as a parallel government without responsibility but with immense nuisance value….
A few days after the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) set aside their differences in Maharashtra to make corruption a common plank against the Devendra Fadnavis-led BJP government in the just-concluded monsoon session of the State legislature, the NCP — that had attended earlier such gatherings — boycotted a meeting of Opposition parties, chaired by Congress president Sonia Gandhi here on Friday.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
