BJP Future - 6
After BJP's inability to score a decisive victory over Congress
in the last round of assembly elections where it lost poll battles in Rajasthan and Delhi, JD(U) and BJD are hoping to press hard for increasing their share of seats for the Lok Sabha polls.

In both states BJP and its allies are in government, making the stakes for each party high. In Orissa, out of the 21 Lok Sabha seats, BJD fights 11 and BJP 9, with the ratio remaining the same as far as the 147 assembly seats are concerned. BJD is looking at taking its share to 110 from the present 80 and to 15 from the present 11 for the Lok Sabha seat share. Of the 40 LS seats in Bihar, BJP has 14 seats in its share while the rest 26 are fought by JD(U).

Major campaign for BJP in Bengal and Kerala should be like this:

"If you don't want Congress to rule India, vote for BJP. If you vote for left to defeat Congress, left will defeat you and support Congress to form the governement. Do not vote for left if you don't want Congress to destroy India".
The Congress is expected to do better in the next general elections as there are several plus factors in its favour:-
1. The reduction in the price of fuel .
2. containing the inflation level.
3. Lack of forceful and unified presentation by the BJP top leadership, particularly the undercurrent of infighting amongst the leaders.

The cumilative effect of all this is evident in the results of the recently held Assembly elections.Banking on Hindu votes will only bring disaster to the BJP as it has not made any significant contribution to consolidate its position among the Hindus.Moreover, in contemporary India religion will not be the deciding factor in any general election.
<!--emo&Smile--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' /><!--endemo--> I don't think so:
1. Economic downturn w/ loss of millions jobs is worse than inflation; if u don't have job, it's immaterial inflation or deflation.
2. Cumulative effect of religion is for all to see in J & K where in J BJP consolidated it's position.
3. BJP leaDERSHIP position is far better than INC where Sonia is ever ready to steal the lime light. and you know stolen leadership is worse than even leaderless.

<b>Chiru rules out alliance with BJP </b>

New Delhi, Dec 29: Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi today virtually ruled out having any alliance with BJP in the elections in the state, <b>asserting that his newly floated Praja Rajyam party is a secular party.</b>

The joker now will align with muslim/christian-appeasing communal parties and show how "secular" he is <!--emo&Tongue--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tongue.gif' /><!--endemo-->

“We will not align with them because ours is a secular party,” he told reporters after meeting Chief Election Commissioner Mr N Gopalaswamy to seek a common symbol for his party to contest the elections.
Observing that options are open for talking to all secular parties, he said that a decision would be taken only after the elections are announced.
Asked whether his party would extend support to any party after the elections, Chiranjeevi said it would depend on the manifesto and policies of that party.
Chiranjeevi today approached the Election Commission seeking a common symbol for his political party Praja Rajyam.
Chiranjeevi along with former Union minister Mr P Shivshanker met Chief Election Commissioner and made the request. n
BJP as a party is composed of well-meaning cadres. Its problem is the organization and leadership. The attitude of other parties to BJP reflects these drawbacks of the party. For example if Mody is the leader I wonder if Tamilians would be so lukewarm to the BJP and that Jayalalitha would have shunned BJP with impudence, for that matter even Praja Rajyam would be trumpeting secularism to reject BJP's advances as Mody could jump into Andhra and churn it in his inimical style!

Theft in BJP office a symptom of organisational drift
<b>Former Shiv Sena state chief joins BJP</b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Jamshedpur, Jan 6 : Septuagenarian leader and former MLA Deenanath Pandey, who recently quit the post of state head of Shiv Sena due to the anti-north Indian remarks of party supremo Bala Saheb Thackeray, has joined the BJP.

Mr Pandey, who was with the Shiv Sena for more than a decade, joined the BJP in a fuction here yesterday.

The veteran leader, who is popularly known as 'old lion' in the political circles of Jharkhand, termed his joining the BJP as 'home coming'.

He had left the BJP in 1995 after being denied the party ticket, despite being a sitting MLA from Jamshedpur East, which he had represented thrice. <!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->
"A minister in the Mayawati government has kicked up a storm here by dubbing Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, and several other prominent statesmen “mafia” and “criminals”.

The minister’s statement sparked anger across the state. The Congress, Samajwadi Party, and <b>Bharatiya Janata Party</b> demanded his immediate dismissal. Agitators burnt his effigies and tore down hoardings of chief minister Mayawati." http://www.dnaindia.com/report.asp?newsid=1219486

As long as the BJP keeps defending moorkan Gandhi and scoundrel Nehru I keep wondering whose friends they are.

If NDA is to form the next govt. this Chiru will be the first to knock at the door for a ministerial birth! Of course, he will also knock if any other outfit were to form the govt. showing his 'secular' credential!!

If there be a law to prohibit local parties (and independents) from contesting for parliament then democracy might seem to have a semblance of functioning. But these secularists thriving on anarchy might not bring refroms to electoral law.
Regional parties will disappear when die-nasty in main parties makes a departure.

Gandhi and Nehru are leaders but not to be glorified at the cost of nationalist leaders.
We need them but the intention of this chap was to reduce the state power and reduce India into anarchy
Current Satyam scandal may be a good opportunity for BJP to target both Congress and TDP in Andhra election.

BJP leadership should quickly come up with a clean strategy based on the needs of Andhra people and outwit Chiranjeevi.

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Advani moves into top gear

Kalyani Shankar

Despite problems within the BJP and the party’s troubled relations with its allies in the NDA, LK Advani is fast emerging as the leading contender for the Prime Minister’s office. With the RSS giving him full power, he should not find the race too difficult to win

<b>The RSS has given a carte blanche to NDA prime ministerial candidate and senior BJP leader LK Advani.</b> Although Mr Advani has been a pragmatic leader and a real force who built the party from a scratch, the number one position had always eluded him. Until last year he remained the second in the party after former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. <b>His endorsement by the NDA as its prime ministerial candidate gave Mr Advani the first boost he needed for the big job.</b>

What has led to the RSS giving a free hand to Mr Advani after forcing him to step down from the president’s post three years ago on the Jinnah issue? Mr Rajnath Singh, who succeeded Mr Advani, has been unable to assert full authority despite the backing of the RSS. Now a patient Advani seems to have won back the full confidence of the RSS and made the Sangh Parivar realise its mistake.

<b>Mr Advani’s game plan to reach 7, Race Course Road is based on a simple calculation. Since 1989 the BJP has won in 297 Lok Sabha constituencies on its own in one election or the other. Similarly, the NDA allies have won in 64 constituencies. Together, the total goes up to 361. If the NDA manages to get even 272, it will be able to form the next Government.</b>

But despite the full backing of the Sangh Parivar, there are too many ifs and buts as problems in the BJP and with its allies in the NDA are too complex. Mr Advani knows he does not have a magic wand.

Mr Advani is not quite the same as he was in the 1990s when he was riding the Ram Rath Yatra wave. His authority then was unassailable. Now there are three perceived power centres within the party. One is his own and the second is that of Mr Rajnath Singh. The third is the growing clout of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

Moreover, strong leaders have emerged in some of the BJP-ruled States and they need to be factored in. Also, he has to curb indiscipline and groupism.

<b>The recent electoral losses in Rajasthan and Delhi are examples of internal sabotage and indiscipline. The BJP’s victory in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh are examples of how the full backing of the RSS can help the party.</b>

On the external front, Mr Advani will have to put together a viable coalition.<b> Gone are the days of 24 partners in the NDA as it has shrunk to just half a dozen. The main task is to hold the NDA together and look for new allies. </b>The BJP’s relationship with the JD(U) is seen as troubled and Mr Nitish Kumar is fastr acquiring a larger than life image in Bihar. There are strains in the BJP’s ties with the BJD in Orissa. The BJP does not have much presence in the south, except Karnataka, where it is in power.

The Left parties are ahead of the BJP <b>in both Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu where they have forged alliances with the TDP and the AIADMK — both were in the NDA earlier. In the Hindi belt, the BJP has no allies in Uttar Pradesh, except perhaps the Rashtriya Lok Dal of Mr Ajit Singh. In Maharashtra. things are not looking very good following the split in the Shiv Sena. With the Trinamool Congress leaving the NDA, the BJP does not have an ally in West Bengal.</b> One thing which is of concern to the party is that despite its good performance in the recent Assembly polls, smaller and regional parties are not attracted to the BJP.

Though options are open for parties like the AIADMK, the TDP, the BSP and other smaller parties in the post-poll scenario, Mr Advani has much to do on the building up of alliances. There is some consolation in the fact that the UPA is in no better position as its allies are getting weaker by the day.

<b>About 100 million first-time voters will participate in this year’s general election. That is a staggering number. More than two-thirds of Indian are aged 35 or below. </b>Will Mr Advani connect with young voters?

Mr Advani’s strategists have decided to clone the campaign style of US President-elect Barack Obama. They are studying Mr Obama’s speeches and slogans, Websites, campus outreach programme and rhetoric of change. Mr Advani’s solace could be that the ruling UPA has not announced any young prime ministerial candidate so far. Had this opportunity come to him earlier, probably he could have faced it much more comfortably.

Finally, Mr Advani’s past may also haunt him. <b>The Liberhan Commission report is likely to come out before the general election which may or may not give a clean chit to Mr Advani in the Babri Masjid demolition case. </b>

<b>But despite the problems withing the BJP and with its allies, things are not that bad for Mr Advani. After all the NDA led by Mr Advani has its own political space and this cannot be wished away.</b> In politics one week is a long time. There are at least three months before the Lok Sabha poll is held. If things go the NDA way, Mr Advani will have the last laugh and leave his critics looking silly.


Whats with BS Shekawat of Rajasthan? Looks like its not enough that he sabotaged the BJP there.
What is disgusting is that sangh parivar leaders lack character
bitterly infighting in the face of the MMMM threat
