Nitishs view point is very simple to understand.

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/indi ... 624414.cms
You had an assurance from senior BJP leaders that your views would not be ignored while deciding NDA's PM candidate? In fact, some of them are reported to have told you that your continuance in the NDA would help them stall Modi in his tracks.

There were many things which were discussed informally. However, the fact is that these things don't matter. After the developments which have rapidly unfolded, there remains only one relevant fact, that the BJP has entered a new era which will be dominated by just one individual. Everybody else has been tamed into submission and has become irrelevant. Issues and ideology don't matter. A situation has been created where BJP people in Bihar are wary of praising the achievements of a government of which they were a part. They are scared that they would be seen as running down another "model" of development. People are scared of even talking of Bihar's asmita (pride). This is not good for democracy. I say this with a sense of responsibility. An entire party has been bulldozed in the name of workers and cadre. Whoever criticizes gets abused on Twitter and Facebook. Abuses are heaped on journalists as well as others, who don't agree with a particular viewpoint or join in the propaganda. Is this democracy? What happened to right to dissent? All these things helped make up our mind.

But the BJP sees Narendra Modi as their saviour?

A: It is irrational exuberance. The euphoria is of no consequence. It does not reflect the popular mood and opinion. The fact is that we can hope to bring an alternative government only under the leadership of someone who enjoys the confidence of all sections. It is the BJP which is the loser because were are not claimants for prime ministership.

Theoji, it is nice to see that you take some individual's word at face value but will not do the same for other individuals. Just shows your bias, plain and simple.

Ok, that the BJP is Turing into a one man show, because of the cadre, makes it difficulty to work with the BJP.

Ok I can accept the point.

Theo, lets step back and take another dispassionate look at the political spectrum. What do we see.

Has anybody figured out why NiKu travelled to Pakistan, and establish "you scratch my back" relationships with folks like Imran Khan? Imran Khan, IIRC, was openly supportive of jihad-e-Kashmir till a few years ago.

I can understand Nitish trying to play victim. He has to answer to Bihar's people sooner or later. Too bad his desperate attempts at raising the temperature failed to get the BJP to bite the bait and expel him - an event he would have miled for sympathy to maximum effect.

Fine, like Manohar Parikkar (was it him?) v nicely put it "A leader who delivers cannot be an ajatshatru (one without enemies). There'll always be those who lose out who will oppose."

If Congress, the one family show can rule India for decades and gather support from other sundry parties then what is so wrong with one man show in BJP?

And then Trinamool is not one person party? SP, BSP are not one person parties? So basically this so called the third front in making will be a front of many one-person parties, including NiKu's own party. And they expect it to be cohesive? Secularism cannot be an adhesive for political alliance.

>> lets step back and take another dispassionate look at the political spectrum. What do we see.

nobody dares to break wind in the congress without signed approval from 10 janpath. senior INC people are known to lose their voice and shiver in Her presence.

for unknown reasons She evokes more fear than stalin or lavrenti beria.

same goes for SP, BSP, Trinamool, DMK , national conference, NCP, both the factions of shiv sena and ofcourse AIADMK...all of these have a big boss and varying degrees of pain are inflicted on anyone who dares to step out of line.

it was only BJP that was lacking a commander leader and now has got it. loh purush and D4 were not commanding leaders :D

NiKu's defection is the best thing happened to BJP. NaMo can now focus on Bihar, UP, MP, Rajasthan, Gujrat and Punjab. Also his leadership will be tested in Maharashtra and Karnataka. I hope BJP, Shiv Sena and MNS form alliance in Maharashtra. Similarly NaMo has to make peace with BSY in Karnataka.

Overall the picture looks quite positive for BJP. There is no turning back now.

So again why the Khujli with the way the cadre has forced the elevation of Modi. Tomorrow if Modi fails to deliver. The cadre will also force the removal of Modi.

Why the big khujli in that.

Had Niku not defected his party would have been swallowed by mighty Modi. NiKu is smart and he has taken correct calculated risk. The best thing to save his political career is to split from BJP and not let other JDs pray on his votebank. He may not rule India as he dreamed before but he will do enough to survive (and make money... in short).

It is indeed quite interesting, why would Nitish split, and that too now. Both the decision and timing are very difficult to explain. I think time will explain why. Possibly the question of money from outside India is finally true.

Nitish is desperately trying to play victim, however he says this
11:42 Why didn't Advani address our concerns if Atal is unwell: Nitish: "The split with the NDA is not a hasty decision. It was decided after due consideration and taken at the right time," he says dismissing the BJP's charge. He reiterated that the the JD-U had a cordial relationship with Sushil Modi, the deputy chief minister of Bihar, but "external forces changed that. I had no option but the sack BJP minister as they remained absent for the Cabinet meet."

"I know Atalji has been unwell and we pray for his speedy recovery. But if he was unwell, Advaniji could have addressed our concerns," he added.


Advani basically seems to have told NiKu to get lost.

All kinds of arguments are found based on level of payment received - Suddenly Advani became Respectable Senior Citizen, BJP is in the danger of going to in Individual based party (why do you care??? if it does) NaMo is dagerous for BJP and RSS itself. (why we donot know) He is dangerous for Democracy ( more than mafia and Amul Baba with I national daamad???) His model of Development is not incluside (which one is then???) He is for Big Corporates only ( What Moily saying just the other day???) He has hunger for power and ambition to become PM (why not I say? We all have hunger and ambition to become something Right? What is wrong with that? It is the manner in which we want to reach our goal and what we wish to do with the power that is improtant) Now he can not build NDA ( So be it why do you care???)

Not surprisingly we do not see Media asking any questions to Amul Baba or any one else of Mafia gang. It treats INC mafia as celebraties. Useless.

Sanku ji, one difference, at this point between LKA and Niku is that LKA knows he is an untouchable outside the Sangh and he wisely decided not to force the issue at this point. Niku somehow believes that he would be very much in demand with the minorities despite him having been touched by the Sanghis.

Presuming LKA has not seen the light yet, I am sure LKA would have reasoned with Niku as to the desirability of staying on to pre-empt NM completely in later stages. This reason would have held especially considering no amount of secularism can make Niku a re-touchable.

Presuming LKA has seen the light and is unwilling to help out Niku at and beyond this stage he would have told Niku to back off. Again the re-touchability issue remains for Niku.

In both cases for Niku, it is a gamble that we cannot really understand at this point.

For BJP it is a good state of affairs that OTOneH Karyakartas and leadership are on the same page and OTOH the Karyakartas have a real hope of establishing a working relationship with sympathizers and onwards with the larger India. It is high time that the flight envelop is opened up and IOC-1&2 are completed fast say by December 13.

What is this :

"I know Atalji has been unwell and we pray for his speedy recovery. But if he was unwell, Advaniji could have addressed our concerns,"

"Atalji & Advaniji created NDA. We cannot imagine a coalition without them'

Both of them 85+. These JDU & D4 supporters seem to be on a very strong dhatura juice to blurt such bullshit from their musharrafs. Their time is over, these jokers just refuse to see it.

I disagree Saar. Either Modi lead BJP rescues Bharat. The economy is going to nose dive anyway. With Congress at the helm, dead economy will wipe congress out. You need quick decision making in times of turmoil. Congress is incapable of this. It has been shown time and again.

नरेंद्र मोदी पर निशाना साधने से पहले अपना अतीत देखें नीतीश कुमार

Excellent article in Hindi on Nitish's two faced past.

साल था 2002 का. उस वक्त नीतीश कुमार रेल मंत्री थे. ये सब जानते हैं कि दंगों की शुरुआत गोधरा में रेल बोगी जलाए जाने के बाद हुई. अब नैतिकता की बात करने वाले नीतीश ने तब कुछ नहीं कहा. सत्ता के शहद में अपने दोनों पैर रगड़ते रहे. उनसे ज्यादा ठोस स्टैंड तो बिहार के रामविलास पासवान ने लिया, जो इस मुद्दे पर इस्तीफा देकर एनडीए से अलग भी हो गए. मोदी सपोर्टर एक वीडियो इन दिनों खूब शेयर कर रहे हैं. ये गुजरात में शूट हुआ था. मौका था किसी रेलवे प्रोजेक्ट की शुरुआत का. मंच पर रेल मंत्री नीतीश के साथ मुख्यमंत्री मोदी थे. नीतीश ने कहा कि मुझे उम्मीद है कि देश को एक दिन नरेंद्र भाई की सेवाएं मिलेंगी.

What is the point in having a BJP version of con party. SS, AJ etc don't have mass base to force their agenda and push reforms.

People are saying that modi is 'authoritarian' and 'polarising' as though these are negative points.

These are exactly why I want modi.

TBH, it is only in india he is painted as such. in most other countries he would be a centrist with priority on development.

we have utterly stupid definitions where muslim leader espousing muslim causes and behaving as though he has a separate electorate - is secular, while any hindu leader unless he pisses on hinduism, is "polarising" and "communal".

modi unrelenting on development issues is being called authoritarian, like a hitler or stalin :lol:

not amusing at all.

Another factor that should be accounted for is the % of Muslims in Bihar population. Official estimates state it at 16.6%. Unofficial estimates at over 25%.

If this is the future where development is going to take a back seat to appeasement, we can onlee see the trend worsening. Every 'secular' leader will try to get the Muslim backing at the expense of non Muslims.

Niku seems like a good riddance.

i.e if Nitish has much to contribute anything substantial after next LS elections. Apart from Nalanda and 3-4 other constituencies, there are not many seats in Bihar where JD(U) is on a strong footing on its own. This is a golden opportunity for BJP to claim Bihar provided it makes necessary changes to the local leadership.

Fully agree. This one person one vote system is going to be unsustainable from Hindu point of view. In medium term future we should be ready to discard this system.

BJP+SS+SAD = 209 :D

If NDA gets this number I think AIADMK(25) + BJD(12) + TMC(15) + Rest fill by independents can put Modi in charge of India by 2014.

B Raman who passed away yesterday after a long struggle with cancer, seemed to vaccilate a bit regarding the NaMo phenomenon in his final months. The negative tweets seem to be more directed at NaMo supporters who he felt were too aggressive on Twitter - than towards NaMo himself.

Perhaps realizing that he was nearing his end, his final testament tweeted to his followers regarding NaMo were the following:

May 19- My message to those who read me: Back NaMo for PM. He may not come up to expectations, but he will be refreshingly different

May 21- I decided to back NaMo becoz he is only leader with the required lucidity in thinking, razor-sharp focus on issues & ability to prioritise

Plus hopefully Amma another 35 at least. 240 - 32 short of 272 - BJP needs huge effort in UP to increase their mumbers. They may not win 15 in Karnataka and and 15 is way too much in Jarkhand - Babulal Marandi is to be brought in there. KA not withoutYaddi. NaMo may try to bring Yaddi in to BJP or at least NDA fold.

Instead of asking NK type fellows, BJPs should try to bring back the old BJP people who were with the party for deceades and left for one reason or another.

jj may get 35 plus. no major complaints and dmk stands exposed both in scams and ltte issue. money talks but cadre enthusiasm also matters and it is quite low for dmk. hence the regular feelers to vijaykant's DMDK and ramadoss's PMK from old man.

power situation has to be solved and that will be a major seller for admk. but the KKNPP is STILL not online and Cho has cast aspersions that dmk is making the centre drag its feed on this. far fetched but still plausible. we are in the dark, pun intended.

will be hard work, but namo might be able to broker a truce between yeddi and the KA BJP, get his party as NDA constituent and implement seat sharing between Yeddi and BJP to avoid vote splitting. now that D4 are kind of defanged the biggest yeddi baiters have lost their bite.

KA is a big state, dont lose it cheaply just because D4 goofed up and didnt back the man.

Reading this forum. Some times I fear that we are pinning all our hopes on one man. One man who has nearly no opportunity and time to formalize his ideals or to even test them in the great marketplace of Ideas. That is, the national elections.

What happens, if, this man is removed from the scene. Is their a second string who may have the same ideals, same drive. Or will the wave be dissipated long before it reaches the shore.

Unlike most of the NaMo fans I think a removal of the man will result in a dissipation of the wave rather then a win for the BJP. Some may see this removal as an act of god, or karma paying him back.

The other thing that I see is that after initial attempts at an == between the dynasty and NaMo, on this thread, such attempts have now totally stopped.

We still need to look at the Dynasty and what it is capable of doing. Rather then focus all our attention on Modi. As Dynasty flying under the radar could still cause major havoc, within the ranks of Modi supporters.

and one thing about Dynasty, is they always have a next gen ready to take over should the current gen fall. we are into the 4th gen of dynasty now and look how strong and unshakeable they are in faith that only THEY are destined to rule this land. the 5th gen is also growing up, always "willing to serve the nation"

if namo falls the bjp wont last, I dont see a strong second line .... only opportunists, local satraps and d4 types...nobody to cement them and mold them into a fighting team LKA did play that role during the babri masjid and its aftermath as BJP steadily gained ground.

Just a word of caution on the extent to which msm can lie. IE today reported that suresh soni would be removed from a key position in rss to placate advani. Ram Madhav rss spokesperson wrote on twitter that it is false and the news is a plant

A rationalized seat by seat analysis will give us realistic estimates. All estimates here are too optimistic. ( These are music to my ears, though.)

I think it is too early to even guesstimate. Once every party goes in poll mode, circumstances will change. I am afraid that namo is being forced early start and he might peak out early. Getting the karyakarts ready is one thing and getting people is different. It is the latter part where I am worried about. In politics weeks , leave aside months, are too long a time for fluid dynamics.

I am also of the opinion that fighting poll station by poll station call is valid one and probably the winning strategy.
