ahmad x
Q. RSS concluded, BJP s poll reverses was due to faulty campaign and tactics and they should have focused much more on Modi & Varun. Recently, they had a meeting with LKA and next day with Rajnath Singh. In my opinion instead of such meetings at individual levels, RSS should meet all the 8/10 top leaders of BJP together and then only they can do a proper analysis of what all has gone wrong and what needs to be done towards course correction. Outside Gujarat, Modi has made 212 rallies from which BJP has hardly got any seat and yet RSS wants to focus on a man who has failed. Your take please

Q. BJPs main plank is to attack Congress and its leaders at personal level. It has failed and it has failed miserably this time. In a country like India, there are many issues like Bijli, Pani, Sadak and the like which has appeal to the rural masses. BJPs handicap is Hindutva. This can be easily be changed over to nationalism & no Mandir. If they can forget Mandir, I think they can come back and make Congress run for their money. But will they be allowed to do so by RSS? If not, can they come out from the clutches of RSS? If they cannot, they are likely to meet same fate as the Left. Your take.
Shanthi Sunil Shenoy:  A. too early to predict more
