Electoral Tamasha

It is hilarious to know that the Shiv Sena candidate from Malvan couldn't even save his deposit. This is what happens to a party which ridicule's popular leaders. The popular leaders may not be good, but they win u elections. There is a message for BJP in this- Uma Bharti must be treated with more respect.
Udhav Thackray has alledged rigging in Malvan and he not even as graceful as Laloo to accept defeat. Its time the reins of Shiv Sena are handed to Raj. He is the person who can enthuse some life into the dormant Sena.

Now to Bihar. It has been a major victory for NDA. SOme factors that contributed to their victory-
1. upper caste votes
2. Most backward caste votes
3. Muslim votes for JDU (at least thet didn't vote aggressively against the BJP)
4. General discontent with RJD:Laloo lost heavily in the Muslim-Yadav belt.
There is one thing the BJP can do. Tow the Hindu line but don't antagonise the Muslims and make them vote against you- exactly what Sudheendra Kulkarni said. The BJP can get votes from the common Muslim.

Firstly, I am not at all for Shiv Sena.. but I certainly do support their Hindu Ideology.
BJp are yet to find a suitable leader...I certainly dont think Uma Bharthi is a capable enough...

Finally, Am keeping my fingers crossed ... U should get a call atleast... 43 is a superb score dude....

Varun u seem to have got me wrong.
I am humiliating Shiv Sena.
Second I was talking about Madhya Pradesh chief ministerial berth. No one can deny that Uma Bharti is popular. Yes Mahajan might be a better administrator and more liberal, visionary or whatever but... he can't win elections.
No comments about my comments on the Muslim votes?

What is the most fascinating thing regarding the results was the fact that the so called communal forces i.e., BJP garnered more votes (55) than the so called RJD (54). Hahahahaha !!!! BJP should do a little organisation jig and continue with their development as key issue. Thats the only thing that can save this country and subsequently its people.
