Re: My Take : Why SS-BJP lost

viking,

You have listed problems quite accurately with the Maharashtra electorate. However you forgot that Shiv Sena, due to its ties with BJP, has become incompetent just like BJP has. They both have no issues so to speak of. Both parties only shout the usual 'corruption' bull crap.

People know that corruption will always remain and so barking about corruption gives you no advantage. Also the terrorist attacks in Mumbai dont affect Mumbaikars, so do you think rural folks care? No, they dont.

Shiv Sena and BJP need to learn that the rural folks need only good sound bites, liquor during elections, loan waivers, etc. Terrorism is a 'urban' problem for the rural folks, corruption is a 'daily' issue which is just like any natural bodily function.

SS and BJP need to learn how to divide people further like Raj Thackrey did in Mumbai, Congress does in different parts of the state and thus gain electoral advantages.

Good post. you
