One crucial point which we must understand before blaming GoI (and Na.Mo alone). Law and Order is a state subject
. In India the primary law enforcement agency is the state police, and 95% of the law enforcement, identifying & preventing crime and, charge sheeting criminals and ensuring that they meet justice all rests with them. The central government of the day will not have much say on day to day policing.
BJP would be able to leverage the state governments in the 15+ states they are ruling, and ask them to use their police machinery more effectively (UP seems to be slowly moving in this direction). But in other areas the BJP will not have much leverage. Dismissing state governments etc. was easy during Banditji's time; but not any more.
For central government (& Na.Mo) the challenges I foresee are;
1. Gangs arranged by the "seculars" themselves indulging in lynching and mob violence. The recent soap-opera of picking up a random Muslim and asking him to say "Jai Shri Ram" is part of such scheme. Such gangs would be more in areas where the state government is "secular" or places where L&O in general is pretty poor.
2. The Central Govt not able to ensure that the respective state governments pull up their socks and deal with any vigilante crowd. To be quite frank, I am yet to find any state police force in India who today have the guts to conduct good raids in Muslim localities. So the government apathy and the state police's lack of guts/limitations would mean that the Hindu majority can be threatened again and again.
3. The main stream media would completely down play the role of Jehadis and the incapable state government and constantly blame the central government (alone).
On the opportunities side;
1. Use agencies completely under the central government to perform better. NIA is one such agency, and we have seen them now picking a lot of peacefools from various parts of India (Last week alone; 4 from WB 1 from KA).
2. Focus on the money trail and start cutting of the cash supply. Once the money flow stops people (irrespective of religion) would be forced to work. I feel busting of various "Islamic" ponzi schemes like IMA is perhaps part of a well planned strategy. These folks are the money bags for the jehadis.
3. Identify "secular" people amongst politicians, business houses, media houses who generally focus on downplaying Islamic terrorism and over-hype any violence from the Hindu side. None of these groups are really 100% honest crowd; expose them and damage their reputation.
