Hindu Statement

Its not a Religious Statement, Its a Cultural Statement!!!

Is Congress stealing the thunder from the BJP.

The Congress seems to be doing an image make over as a young and dignified party, endearing itself to the urban crowd, while carrying its old image as a party of the rural masses with equal ease.

  1. Looks like the number of young leaders in congress is on the rise, with the help of Rahul Gandhi, and he seems to be inclined to add more young guns to the team. Contrast this with BJP, which does not have many young leaders to boast of, at the national level. This seems to be a very importnat issue considering that the average age of the  Indian populace is what were term as young.
  2. It is not a secret that the congress sounded more dignified during the mud slinging match between the “weak” PM and the “strong”  Advani (add a pinch of Modi, Rahul and Priyanka to spice it up). After the end of it, it looks like it was the BJP which lost ground because of the episode.
  3. Most of the cities have voted for the Congress or its allies, which until recently have been BJP strong holds. That clearly indicates that the middle class, educated, urban voters are getting pulled towards the congress.
  4. It is a fact that the congress looks better in the media, be it visual or print. BJP spokespersons might be great people with excellent qualification and reputation, but they are not able to create an image in the minds of people which will remove the bad publicity that it has been getting all these years.  But got to admit that the BJP did look dignified in defeat and did not act like a child who just lost a race at the  sports meet.

So the question that I am pondering upon is wether the BJP loosing its shine to the congress? Will it fade into oblivion in the near future?

15 minutes to defeat terrorism – by Rahul Gandhi

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday had a surprise suggestion of empowering villagers to fight terrorism.

“I am confident that this country can take on terrorism. Defeating it is no problem. If we empower those people in villages, we can sit back, relax and we will destroy terrorism in 15 minutes,” Gandhi told a press conference here.

Err…Umm.. Beware Taliban, here come our villagers!! Swoosh …15 minutes later the taliban were defeated and sent to hell and the Villagers went back to their daily chores. No need for the army or the police, no anti-terrorist squad, no nothing. Just our plain old villagers will do the trick. Where was Rahul when these terrorists were raising their ugly head? If he had suggested this earlier we would not have had to live our lives scared until now. Such maturity and wisdom at such a young age, it must have been there in his genes.

Or was he mentioning the Naxalites? I guess he was, and if he was , am not surprised that he equated terrorism with maoists and not the radical Islamists. Not bad dude , you seem to be learning the tricks of vote bank politics  very well.

I have asked before and still ask, do you “secularists” and the “intellectuals” STILL believe that this man is the one who will take India forward.? Is having the blood of the Nehru family the best and the only criteria to lead India? I do believe that priyanka is a natural politician and can give many an opponents a run for their money(but she needs the experience in public domain before she can become a politician) , but this guy ?? I mean, its ok to campaign for his mom, an may be its ok to be a politician in the congress party( they cant go any lower even with him included), but a PM.. Some one who will lead India forward??

Come on people, wake up.
