i think this entire election has become modi-centric. People are either for him or against him.The issues on all sides, the talk about corruption/ development/ growth models etc have just become side-shows to that. Even the hate speeches and the bad-mouthing are just circus. One just hopes that the anti-modi votes get split...
i feel this principle would also apply to bihar. People's like/ dislike of modi should be the most dominant factor, and should overpower caste politics... The only danger is if the muslims actually vote tactically in every constituency as they have been threatening to do, so voting for one anti-modi party in one constituency and for another anti-modi party in another. It's hard to see how they'd be so organized however...
coming to kejriwal, i think this guy is a disaster. He's never been able to hold on to any job- he ran away from Tata, ran away from Tax dept, ran away from Delhi CM. He's a guy who can only criticize, only destroy... if you go by his rationale for fighting against modi, he says he wants to destroy bjp... and his vishwas buddy from amethi wants to knock off congress from the map. So what do we replace those parties with? His rag-tag band of clueless anarchists? For better or worse, these are two parties that have the sort of organizational structure one needs for nation-wide governance. We just need to clean them up, not necessarily destroy them... It's also dangerous destroying institutions without offering a vision of what these would be replaced by. His claim of simply cleaning up the system does not fly, given that he's been intellectually dishonest on so many front. Basically, i just hope he's taken to the cleaners after this election. I'd rather have a Kiran Bedi run the anti-corruption party, not this bozo.
and what's this nonsense with Shazia Illmi? She's saying muslims are not too communal, her absurd rationale being they vote for "others", not their own ie. kejriwal? Ok. But since when has kejriwal become muslims ke "apne"?
Also, is there another "com" that is as together when it comes to voting? Told you, some of these people belong in a circus.
