Congress screws the public for 4.5 years but they know how to lick the voters' backside during the last 6 months. Public memory is short and Congress knows how to play that very well.

BJP needs to understand that it is only at the time of voting that the voter feels powerful and needs to be pampered. When they learn that, and can still give good govt. for the remaining 4.5 years too, will we really have India shining.
BJP better learn fast from Congress. They have already lost me even before I started looking afresh at Congress.

I'd rather not. They need to find their own strategy for pleasing the voters at election time than copy Congress's. What difference will there be between the parties then?

Maybe they lost a supporter in you, but this kind of thing goes on all the time. Not everyone gets taken in by Congress hogwash, otherwise Congress wouldn't be losing ground in the states since independence. I'm sure that BJP is gaining more admirers than losing them.

Re: Modi gets into damage control mode

Meanwhile, the latest is that Amit Shah has addressed a press conference in Ahmedabad to air his side of the things, and is now going straight to visit the CBI office. It is supposed to be about an hour's ride. The speculation is on about whether the CBI will intercept him midway and arrest him before he reaches their office.

Does CBI have power of arrest?

Re: Modi gets into damage control mode

CBI inquiry/arresting/judicial custody of Amit Shah is nothing but to avoid question of inflation in the parliament session which starts tomorrow.Soo that the opposition BJP will talk only about Amit Shah in parliament,walk out etc and the inflation question would be diluted.

Gujarat Congress leaders must be shivering...It was Amit shah who single handedly wrested many boards and corporation chairmainship and given it to BJP people. Now when modi will strike they will find no ground to stand...As i hv heard rumors that He has asked to find old cases involving congress leaders...but then again congress will talk of politics of revenge....

Jai ho Sonia Mata :jai italy:
Here we go again. I am all fine with your comments about Congress but do we have to go again to her origins?

Here we are, not liking this whole caste, subcaste thing. We profess to not like reservations etc, but then the moment its Congress, we have to go into 'ethnicity' of Sonia.

I am all for you bashing Congress to your heart's content, but do we have to go down the road of even involving her origin?

Re: Modi gets into damage control mode

two things:
1. congress needs nehru/gandhi surname.
2. indians have slave mentality and consider fair skin superior. this applies to our netas too, maybe more to kangressi ones.
its destiny which has has brought her to the right place at the right time maybe

That is the inefficiency and incompetency of BJP which myself and Cha Pai are talking about. Why didn't they did it in 2002 only. They should have bashed some Media Guys also. Small crime but India would have been spared two terms of Corrupt Congress.

How come Teesta Stelwaad live in Ahemdabad and bark on every channel against his state's chief minister Narendra Modi. Try saying anything against Congress Chief Minister and then you are sure to be found in some gutter

Would Teesta have tried the same thing against late YSR the ex-CM of A.P

Let me narrate a incident from my life with respect to BJP. My maternal uncle is a big fan of BJP. He is a staunch supporter.

Remember that a few years ago Lalkrishna Advani said that Jinnah was secular. This created a media storm and people were upset with Advani for prasing Jinnah.

At that time my uncle was saying no this was a BJP masterstroke, etc. Even a few reporters wrote that this was a genius masterstroke etc in the newspapers. I told my uncle bluntly - Common man does not understand such genius and master stroke etc. He thinks BJP is for Pakistan!

What happened? In the next elections this statement came to haunt BJP more than ever and they anyway fell flat.

Problem with BJP is that they think they are very deep thinkers and very profound when they make statements. What they sorely lack is Shakuni Mama type thinking which Congress has perfected over the years.

So as long as BJP has leaders, supporters and thinkers like my uncle the BJP will never ever win.

I never show my interest in politics for many years before them just to prevent argumentum due to differnce in our views.. during my last visit I observed that they are openly saying that BJP remain just bunch of pseudo intellectuals.. but I am still not showing any interst in politics before them

marvel bhau,

I too was a total avid supporter of BJP. I still have a soft spot for Shiv Sena but that too is fast vanishing because Balasaheb is no longer in charge and his son Uddhav is a total novice, naive and arrogant about politics. I can understand a novice but naivette with arrogance is a deadly combination.

Even today most of my family is all for BJP but I have digressed because BJP is not pseudo-intellectuals but only full of people who think they are intelligent. To be pseudo intellectual you have to be aware that you are being one, but here all of them are just plain unaware that what they think is intelligent is really not.

Had we not had Congress, by now we would have further disintegrated. I know we appease minority way too much but its better than having a Isral Palestine situation on our hands.

Re: Modi gets into damage control mode

It is not damage control exercise by Modi or BJP. It is a damage control exercise by the Congress and Union Government. The monsoon session of the parliament starts today and the government was expected to face unusually united flak from the opposition over inflation, Indo-pak talks and other issues. So, the government needed an issue to distract the major opposition - BJP.

Now I am more sure of this because the Sardarji is getting into Sohrabuddin case game with his following interview. So, he is inviting the opposition to attack him on this issue, and forget the others.

CBI is not 'Congress bureau of investigation': PM

IANS, Jul 26, 2010, 10.49am IST


NEW DELHI: The CBI is not the "Congress bureau of investigation", Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said on Monday, refuting the Bharatiya Janata Party's allegations of conspiracy behind the arrest of its leader Amit Shah.

"CBI... is not Congress bureau of investigation. CBI is not a mouthpiece of the Congress," Manmohan Singh told reporters outside Parliament before the beginning of the monsoon session on Monday.
