Gujarat and HP Elections are over peacefully, without any major incidents.This is a Great Tribute to the Democratic foundation of India. We have come a long way from the days of heavy Booth capturing in every Election to the EVMs and VVPATs.

No doubt, there are still some allegations and some possibilities of EVMs not working properly and potential to favour a particular party. The Election commission has been acting on such complaints promptly. Definitely, Election commission will be making the VVPATs and EVMs much more error-free and tamper-proof in the years to come.

If Booth capturing has become a thing of the past, EVM tampering also will become a thing of the past. All Major political parties must come together to make them Error free and completely Tamper-proof. These are computers and at a certain level, any computer is Error-prone and tamper-prone. We can attempt 99.9% accuracy and leave the balance to natural forces / God. The effort to make them perfect must however always continue.

Not only EVMs but EXIT Polls also can be error prone and we have seen Big instances of that in the past. Again, EXIT POLLS are getting better and better as time passes. Not every Exit Poll is accurate but if all Exit Polls point in one direction, possibly, that is the direction of the FINAL RESULT.

In that way, BJP seems to be winning both Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh Assembly Election,2017 comfortably. Congress is a distant SECOND.

(1) If a question is raised on - "WHO IS WINNING, MODI OR BJP?", in most minds, the answer seems to be Modi. Modi has worked for Gujarat and Modi is working for India, wholeheartedly,sincerely and to the best of his ability. He is raising the stature of India in all International Platforms significantly. He is bringing in many new schemes like Swachh Bharat, Make in India, Skill India etc, which must succeed, for the sake of India. Adhaar Card may be the idea of Manmohan Singh. But, Modi is using it far more effectively. Likewise, MNREGA was Congress's idea. But, Modi is implementing it much Better. Every Minister in Modi's Cabinet is proving his/her mettle far better than the Ministers in the Manmohan Singh or any other Congress Government earlier. And, much unlike Manmohan Singh and Rahul Gandhi, Modi is far more focused on development and articulates it much better and implement it much better. So, Modi winning Elections of this type is but natural.

(2) If Modi wins, BJP wins automatically. That is OK. Can BJP win without Modi?  I doubt this a lot. BJP does not carry the same level of glorified Image as Modi. There is a lot to change in the BJP at Grass Roots levels.The BJP CMs must emulate Modi totally with "Sab Kaa Saath, Sab Kaa Vikas" and articulate it in their states much better than at present. They must identify themselves totally with 100% of their population and attend to their development. They must not only DO, but also show and prove that they are doing. You must not always try to win on the basis of Modi's performance and the Centre's performance. Your winning must be based on YOUR performance and your people's development. In fact, based on the states performance, people must be tempted to vote for the centre. Some Non congress, Non BJP states like Telangana and AP are performing almost like Modi.

(3) At the Centre also, in the euphoria of making reforms, some bad ideas seem to be floating and these are not scotched effectively. Like the rumour on Fixed Deposits in Banks.In olden days, when manual systems existed, each Branch was considered a different Bank and if anything happens to the Bank, like fire, theft etc also, all depositors suffered for want of records at higher levels. Today, that is not the case with Public sector Banks and Private sector Banks. Customer records are available at all levels. If a Public sector Bank faces problems, it is definitely because of Management fault and Depositors must not be allowed to suffer on any account. In respect of Public deposits at Public sector Banks, Mr.Jaitley must come forward to extend full protection to 100% of depositors to the fullest extent of their deposits. That is the only way, Public confidence in Banking system can be maintained.Reimbursement of just upto Rs.1lakh is a foolish idea  in respect of PSBs, though that seems to be the existing system.What is given to Government must be safe in the Hands of Government. There cannot be any compromises in it.

(4) Today, JOBS CREATION is of paramount importance for India. So, any idea that results in JOB LOSSES  must not be taken up at all - until we show alternative employment to the affected people. One such is Bank Mergers. Allow Public sector Banks to stay as they are. Heavens will not fall, if we don't have Mega sized Banks by Merger of Banks which will eat into Jobs. On the other hand, take all measures to make each Bank function well.

(5) BJP workers and Netas at Grass roots levels must be made responsible to unite their people, irrespective of caste and religion.  They must be made to consciously reach out to all sections of people and bring unity among people. What Narendra Modi says as my 125 crores of Indians - must be achieved by BJP workers consciously. At least, the effort must be made towards that end.

(6) India's development will always be stunted, if development does not reach all people. So, this must be the Goal. For that,  emotional integration of ALL PEOPLE is a must. In the name of further reservations etc, we must not divide people further. If some fellow raises reservation issue for his caste, there not be apologetic voices or knee jerk reactions. The time has come for the wealthy in all sections to come out of the scheme of reservations. Let Government provide the legal frame work for the wealthy and the self confident persons to voluntarily opt of reservation schemes and get classified as OC. Today, even if somebody wants, he cannot opt out of reservation schemes. This is foolish.

(7) I want Modi to remain as PM for at least one more term and BJP to bring   India into the development mode fully. We didn't have a leader like Modi for a long time. He is needed by India.

(8) That said, all that is said above applies equally to Congress party and its leaders too. I want Rahul Gandhi to mature into as Good a leader as Modi. I want Congress netas to shed their past sectarian views and work for the good of all people. All people are Indians. Do not divide them into groups fighting each other, for any purpose. I also want other leaders in Congress to vie for leadership roles by dint of their merit. India definitely needs a strong, vibrant opposition political party, and a strong party in Power.  Otherwise, Democracy will become stunted.

(9) Whether BJP wins or Congress wins - India must win. Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh must win in the next 5 years -as the fastest DEVELOPED STATES. That is the only Goal of these Elections and that is what the people who voted must aspire for.

NARENDRA MODI - THE NEW MANTRA FOR INDIA - BJP strategy - How to win the 2014 Election ?




We don't know when Lord Krishna will come again according to his above stated promise. Perhaps that will happen towards the end of Kaliyug. But, periodically, he sends suitable emissaries to set the world right  to some extent.

Very Urgently, India needs to rid itself of Corruption, Casteism, Communalism and huge inequalities and mutual suspicions built by the Political class for 66 years.

Most Politicians today are dishonest, corrupt and anti-people. They have built an election system in which common man has no place. A potential candidate requires crores of rupees to contest an election. Which common man can afford this? Money, Liquor and many freebees flow in the process of election - despite an efficient Election commission making all-out efforts to control these malpractices. The urge of Political class to indulge in corruption is so great. The kick-backs to them after elections appear unbelievable. That is the reason for so much of corruption in India.

The Political class have corrupted the Police system so much that common man in India today, is more afraid of the Police system - than of the Criminals and their nexus. This is not because the common man is criminalistic, but many in the Police are hand in gloves with the criminals on one side and with the corrupt Politicians on the other side. These are hard, harsh realities in India today.

The Indian rupee has gone down from Rs.1 = $1 parity in the initial days of our  Independence to Rs.62 (& more) = $1 today. This one degradation of Indian Rupee is enough of an illustration for the misgovernance that has taken place in the last 66 years.

But, the average Politician is just not worried about this mis-governance that has taken place. He is not even apologetic about it. He justifies it. He justifies it on so many grounds. The problem with the ordinary people is - they are willing to vote for the same people who misgoverned - based on the same false promises which have continued for 66 years.

But, this time, in this Elections-2014, it could be different. Many people in India have woken up to new possibilities. Unlike all General elections to the Parliament fought before 2013, the General Elections - 2014 could be significantly  and qualitatively different.

The foremost factor which makes it so different is none other than - Narendra Modi. BJP has done the wisest thing in declaring Narendra Modi as its PM candidate. Subsequent to that declaration, Narendra Modi has turned the tide - a lot of it - in BJP's favour. The small hitches here and there do remain in BJP. Ex - stalwarts who can't win an election on their own but were leaders of the BJP Party in their own right  earlier - are creating problems for their own party in winning this election. All BJP leaders need to realize that this 2014 Election is a Historic Opportunity for them to come to power and prove themselves once and for ever - and they can do it only if they wholeheartedly support Narendra Modi as the PM.  These small EGOs can fritter away the chances of BJP from coming to Power. In other words, all leaders and workers must whole-heartedly and unconditionally support Narendra Modi in all his efforts to turn the people's minds into votes for BJP. Yes. They must all add their might in their own way in this war to win the election. They must all speak in addition to and in support of Modi all over the country.

The Elections are fast approaching and we don't heard Modi or Jaitley or Sushma to the extent we need to , in any grand Public speeches for weeks. Preparatory Material for each speech must come from efficient knowledgeable background men. But, it doesn't seem to be coming to the extent, it is needed for each state. This  disarray in Election machinery and Election efforts is disconcerting. Country is chanting Modi, Modi,Modi but not BJP! Come on BJP. Gear up. Election is on hand. Win it. By all means. No time for small squabbles. 

Narendra Modi is even now being tarred with 2002 RIOTS by persons like Rahul Gandhi. Each one of the BJP leaders must be howling at Congress and its leaders for their 1984 Sikh riots record. But, we really don't hear that much from most BJP leaders, except two or three,  calling for the scalp of the Congress leadership  before they even open their mouths about 2002, in which guilty have been punished by the efforts of Modi Government. Mostly, two or three leaders only defend Modi and that too Mildly. BJP must put the Congress on the Mat for their Sikh riots record.  I consider this, as a Big failure on the part of BJP.

The second is the tag of communalism that is attached to BJP. Some BJP leaders are unnecessarily raking up insane issues like Ram Mandir, which can never be solved by Governments until the top court permits it. That therefore becomes a communal agenda in Elections and a most insane, useless agenda at that.  BJP must shun this totally, as Political Agenda. That, it can never be. For every vote BJP may gain by raking up Mandir issue, BJP will be losing 100 votes elsewhere, and many Potential allies too. 

Therefore only, most of India considers Narendra Modi a more sane, intelligent, secular, progressive leader among all other BJP leaders. I have myself watched Modi for several years now. He never ever once uttered a single word on communal lines. He has run Gujarat  in the most secular way for the last 12 or more years and in the most progressive way. He ensured the calming of the riots in 2002 in the most effective, practical way. He ensured that the Guilty in the 2002 riots are punished very fast. This is in sharp contrast to the Dismal congress Record in Anti-sikh riots. 

Unlike all leaders of all Parties, including BJP, it is Narendra Modi, and he alone, who has made development of India the central theme of 2014 Elections. 

Congress is still in the mire communalism, reservations and all the muck it has been in for 66 years and always attempting to divide Indian electorate on communal lines. Therefore, it is time to bury the Congress,  lock, stock and barrel. Look at the way, it trusted TRS, divided Andhra Pradesh against the advice of all local leaders in the hope that TRS will merge itself with Congress! KCR is not the type of Politicians who can be trusted to fulfill promises made to anybody. He has smelled Power in Telangana all for himself. So, why will he merge with Congress? Unlike his pronouncements before Telangana Bill was passed,  he has now blandly declared to go alone in Elections. He does not give an iota of credit to congress in passing the T'Bill.  Ditto, to BJP. 

BJP must realize its folly and see clearly how it can mend its stand. Never ever ally with promise brerakers like KCR. It must ally with Chandra babu Naidu on both sides and fight elections. Chandra is any time a more dependable leader and as progressive as Modi himself in running Government. Together, Modi and Chandra can win the Seemandra side and gain considerable clout in Telangana too. The eventual brotherhood and friendship of both people is good for both and for the country - even if the states remain separate. But, KCR is trying to fan the feelings of hatred between the 2 peoples already. That needs to be countered by both TDP and BJP.

Modi must be on tour all the time now - addressing meetings in every state; meeting common people here and there and focusing on issues of national and local development. Other leaders must take on Rahul, Arvind kejriwal and other opponents in all their speeches with much greater enregy, much more forceful logic and much more consistency. 

A winning strategy  is a must; BJP must carve out the strategy first; and make it work well. In the absence of it, BJP may find itself in the sort of stalemate it found in Delhi Assembly elections. Very near to the Goal Post but yet not in it. A huge opportunity was lost in Delhi because of not having a winning strategy.

 Jaitley, Sushma and other star speakers must also be doing the talking all the time now. All leaders must present a United Picture to all people. Likewise, Modi must also consciously promote the Image of Jaitley and Sushma who are extraordinarily Brilliant leaders in their own right. 

I, like many others, was impressed by Arvind Kejriwal before the Delhi Elections. I always thought, BJP must be the ruling party but AAP must be the main opposition party, with congress fading out totally.

But, to my utter disappointment, AK has been a Big failure in governing Delhi. He made utterly untenable and unachievable promises like 50% Power Bill cut and free water for all -  and then ran away from Power even before CAG Audit is over. Thereafter, he has been threatening power companies, other companies like Reliance and Adani, all Media houses ( even sending them to Jail) - and the number of untruths he has been uttering in Public life - in such a short span of 2 months - makes a very sad reading.  The way he was asking a TV channel to play up certain sentences, play down certain others - displays his untruthful, dictatorial style very clearly. Given sufficient time, even Congress under Rahul and the youngsters in Congress could become better alternative than AAP.

But right now, it is time for India to instal Modi - as PM. It is time for India to vote for a developmental agenda under Modi's leadership. Calling it Gujarat Model etc is meaningless. Modi is only pointing at what he has done in Gujarat and is assuring us that he will devote himself fully to the development of India without any caste or religious considerations. It will be India Model - nothing short of it and not just Gujarat Model. 

 India must become No.1 in the comity of all nations. All Indians must have jobs. All must have opportunities to develop themselves. All must sink their caste and religious differences in Public life. This must be done as fast as India can. Therefore do we need Narendra Modi. No other party ever forgets caste or religious Identities. But, BJP under Modi will.

Regional Parties have a disastrous role in Parliament Elections. We have seen this in UPA II sufficiently. People must therefore vote for BJP straight. BJP must  contest at least 300+ seats and try to win all of them by itself. Allies will come; but BJP must aim for a straight victory for BJP itself in Parliament. It must aim for 300+ and not for 272+. 

Even people in southern states like Tamilnadu are looking for Modi. Don't go by the vociferous talking of some of the Dravidian Parties.  Given the right alternative, Tamilnadu will be more than willing to dump the foul-smelling casteist logics of many Dravidian outfits and vote for a casteless, clean atmosphere. Ditto with Karnataka, Kerala and AP. Appeal on secular, developmental basis. Appeal to people - to unite and stay united and Grow fast.

This is the New mantra for India. Unite and Win; And, Unite and Grow. This has been the Mantra of Modi for decades now. Let this Mantra create a new India in 2014.
