    To be fair, South India has been a difficult place for all the North or Hindi parties. The core reason is the Aryan-Dravidian propaganda. And this is why Kamal Hassan is dangerous as he seems to be playing on that divide.

    Yet, BJP is still the best placed "hindi" party in South India. On alliances, there is a lot of politics happening behind, TDP has left government but not NDA. So it's a long 1 year and plenty of new alliances will emerge.

    TDP has still not broken all ties with NDA.Its just that their ministers have resigned. I believe both will come around together soon.

    This whole demand for special category status is quite absurd tbh. After 14th finance commission report , it should have been perfectly clear to all the states that asking for special status is wasting of time esp after when govt through tax devolution had already increased the revenue share of states from 32% to 42%.
    And even if AP was promised as such by the then Congress Govt they should feel content with the 90:10 offer being offered by the Govt. Special category Status is off the table.

    I actually like Kamal hassan's political views. Aryan Dravidian propoganda is almost there for every tamil party. So you can't complain him for following that.

    Tamil Nadus politics is based on agitation and some ridiculous victim mentality to which the parties tap into, that was at least one good thing about AIADMK ,whether MGR OR Jaya ,they were not weak leaders.

    Why wouldnt the actors exploit the people worshipping culture of tamil nadu. people of tamil nadu deserve rajnis and mgrs. If only they had someone like Yogi, he would show what a real leader is like.

    Only the people who contributed a lot for state socially are worshipped in Tamil Nadu. Annadurai, MGR, Karunanidhi and Jayalalitha are among them. In addition to being big names in the film industry, these people did a lot of social work. They were also very efficient administrators, albeit corrupt, who did the state a lot of good. Tamil Nadu is one of the best administered states in India and the people there know whom to worship.

    Rajni can make it if he wants to. He is well respected, and is socially very active.

    There have been several famous Tamil actors who tried getting into politics and failed miserably. Notable among these were Shivaji Ganesan, K.R.Ramaswamy, N.S.Krishnan, and S.S.Rajendran. So it is not enough for a person to be a famous actor to make it into Tamilnadu politics.

    Unlike Tamil Nadu, UP only now has a CM who is a 'leader' in any sense of the word. The clowns who were in charge earlier in UP aren't fit to clean toilets in Tamil Nadu.

    Define 'socially active'? Is it offering more reservations to SCs and OBCs than any other state? Or is it the free tellies and washing powder thrown as freebies before every elections?

    Actually embracing social causes like helping poor people. MGR and Annadurai did a lot of that.

    Karunanidhi and Jayalalithaa did too, but only after ensuring that they stashed up their millions.

    Bjp didnot look at the turn out. 37% and 48% in phulpur and gkp respectively. The bjp core middle class votes didnot come out to vote. Complacency will cost bjp.

    Plus they were outmanuevered by the bsp-sp sudden coalition.

    They have to know rethink their strategy.

    This is the 1st time bjp has lost Gorakhpur since 1980s. Gorakhpur has always voted the Mahant of Gorakhpur to power whenever he has fought the election. Yogi has never lost in Gorakhpur nor did his predecessor.

    Even if folks didn't like the BJP in '04, they were dumb enough to vote for Sonia Gandhi instead. I hope they've wisened up in the years since - and Rahul doesn't get a free ticket through a patchy coalition in 2019.

    Third-Largest Economy "Systematically Dismantled" Says Manmohan Singh
    Bengaluru: Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, one of the world's best known economists, today accused the Narendra Modi government of 'systematically" dismantling Indian economy, the third-largest in the world. Presenting a report card, he said in just four years, PM Modi's government has reversed the successes of the UPA government.

    Today, people have lost faith in banking sector, farmers are facing an acute crisis, aspirational views are not finding opportunities, he said. The "virtuous intentions" of the Narendra Modi government has caused the country massive losses due to its "lack of reasoning and analysis", Dr Singh told the media in Karnataka.

    The author of liberalization that turned around the economy from its lowest ebb, Dr Singh said, "It took years to make Indian economy the third largest economy... now it is being systematically dismantled".

    From above 7 during the UPA government, the growth figure has dropped despite favourable international climate, low oil prices and the government's "changing numbers" to "present a rosy picture," he said.

    The series of crises the country faced was avoidable, Dr Singh said, accusing the government of stifling all dissent.

    The scathing attack by the 85-year-old former Prime Minister comes less than a week before the assembly elections in Karnataka. The Congress government of Siddaramaiah is fighting for a second term in the state in face of a tough BJP challenge.

    Dr Singh accused the government of increasing petrol and diesel prices by 110 per cent even though the international prices are 67 per cent down. "Through constant increase in taxes the BJP government is projected to have earned over 10 lakh crore. India must demand answers as to what use this money was put to?" he said.

    Avoidable blunders like demonetization and hasty implementation of the Goods and Services Tax have hurt the small, medium and micro enterprise sector, costing tens of thousands of jobs, he said.

    At the same time, PM Modi tends to blame everything on 70 years of Congress rule, said the former Prime Minister, who led the UPA government for a decade.

    "He forgets the role of Green Revolution -- it made the nation a net exporter of food grains. The PM doesn't mention the role of liberalising economic policies that have transformed India in the last 25 years. Right to Information, Right to Education, Food Security Act, MNREGA, Forest Rights Act, grant of Special Status to a region in Karnataka... PM forgets that UPA policies lifted 140 million people out of poverty in 10 years," Dr Singh said.

    It's a double edge sword. If he doesn't campaign, why is Modi scared? Why he doesn't face the public. It's actually good for democracy that this PM is well-connected with public.

    Is there a good way to implement them? People talk about bad implementation, but what is the right way? They were meant to shock the market, and did exactly that, and the inconveniences to the public quickly diminished.

    It's the recent biggest reforms in India. Credit to BJP for the bold actions whereas other parties aren't

    You're referring to demonetization I suppose. Did you stand in a queue multiple times? Did you have to fill out some rubbish form and have to explain to some overworked bank manager why you trusted Modi's dates regarding depositing your cash. Ok, in the interest of some alleged greater cause, these are small prices to pay. But, what reform?

    What good came out of it? Why hasn't the Government answered fundamental questions about it despite Modiji's impassioned speech asking for chabbis or pacchis (or whatever) days. More than 99% of all the currency came back into the system despite the government's pathetic and desperate attempts in the last few weeks to prevent legitimate returns. There was not even a significant increase in tax-payers following demonetization - in fact, the growth decreased compared to previous years.

    Why was Paytm being pushed so hard (ahead of even RuPay) on government websites?

    Fake notes started appearing within weeks, so that myth got busted. Regarding terrorism, France is No. 3 currently as a cashless society. Has it helped with their terrorism issues?

    Subramaniam Swamy himself has lambasted the demonetization circus, so they really have no legs to stand on there.

    At the heights of demonetization suffering, the Reddy brothers were hosting a palatial wedding in Bengaluru with hundreds of crores being thrown around. The same Reddys have been given tickets in Karnataka now. So please, let's not go into corruption. Yeddyurappa is the face of corruption in Karnataka and he is the BJP's CM candidate.

    The BJP and its fans laughed at Aadhar earlier. Look at the desperation to implement it since coming to power. Anything of significance they have done except demonetization is merely a rebranded version/extension/implementation of previous governments' works.

    Why has the government completely suppressed all news on the Naxal movement in the mining-rich areas and used diversionary tactics like Pakistan and soldiers to blind us? This despite Modiji's embarrassing detour for chai with Nawaz Sharif.

    Muslim appeasement? Have a look at Modiji's rally yesterday in Bengaluru. A Muslim girl was wheeled out as his 'beti' whom he arranged a loan for. It was so cringeworthy, I don't know what to say.

    I'm done.

    Such a comment coming from me may surprise some of the members here. But let me tell you there are so many well educated Muslims (and Christians) in India who feel Narendra Modi is the right guy to lead India. APJ Abdul Kalamís dream of a developed India will hopefully be realised soon.

    There is no comparison between Siddu and the BJP guys.

    Siddu let Bengaluru's status quo remain as is and didn't do much for it, but in villages, he's done a lot of unprecedented good work. I have some land in rural Karnataka so have seen this first hand.

    Even if you account for the droughts that hit Karnataka eating into his vote share, this margin of defeat doesn't make sense. Which is why I feel the majority of rural people who voted for Modi vs Siddu are plain stupid.

    From a city point of view, Kumaraswamy was the best bet though there was never a chance of JDS coming to power.

    I voted JDS but wanted a Siddu government here.

    Looks certain he will lose Chamundeshwari.

    He started his career there and won many times but it got split into Varuna which is where he's been recently representing. This time, he put his son in Varuna - safe bet sort of thing - and in some ways was dared by Kumaraswamy to take up the Chamundeshwari challenge which is majority Vokkaliga (not Siddu's caste). The JDS have a strong candidate there and it hasn't been too surprising a loss.

    The overall loss of the State is a surprise though. I have friends in both the Congress and BJP and both actually can't give a proper answer regarding the results. The BJP ones are just excited and going Modi Modi.

    And the Congress are too stunned by the margin of defeat to think.

    Both should have had prepoll alliance, then they would have demolished BJP today. Instead Congress had tactical understanding with SDPI while JDS hobnobbed with AIMIM. Hindutva BJP should be kept out of South India at least, but even the Muslim/Christian right wing parties should be kept away. I really wish Congress surrenders its ego and ties up with regional parties to form a grand coalition in 2019. BJP should be defeated and so should any party that plays the religion card feverishly.

    Congress needs to get rid of the useless Gandhis, else they will be reduced to a minor player everywhere. Kamaraj was a Congress stalwart in Tamil Nadu back in the day but then Indira Gandhi sidelined him, all that the dynasty has ever done is getting rid off tall state Congress leaders just because they threatened their position. After Kamaraj left there has not been a single Tamil Congress leader even worth talking about.

    There is a lot of advantage of having absolute majority in the govt especially in decision making etc but BJP's communal politics can't be tolerated anymore. With Rahul as the Congress President, there is nothing to worry for BJP anywhere. I want everyone to team up against BJP like they did in the recent by election in UP. That's the only way to defeat them and prevent the further polarisation of our society.

    No thanks. Going by past evidence, a "grand coalition" is basically a trainwreck going to happen. And with the useless Congress as the fulcrum of that, with Rahul Gandhi as the possible PM candidate? Keep those fantasies to yourself.

    By the way, you'll see that. Right before the election, there is always a shaky third front coalition that always comes up, and which disappears until the next election.

    ohh bhai .... views are just as prevalent as an unmentionable body part that everyone has .... Why dont you try to back your views with some proper facts?

    Here are the crimes that were committed under Congress Rule for about 60 years (Sixty freakin years )

    1. Emergency - ( this is a sophisticated word for dictatorship )
    2. Major communal riots ( soo many !! )
    3. Kashmir !! (*** )
    4. Horrible Corruption
    5. Despicable Minority appeasement that is one of the main causes of current situation.
    6. Brazenly open nepotism. Do they even believe in meritocracy ?

    and I could go on and on ....
    ....
    ....
    ....

    I mean supporting this freakin train wreak should be a punishable offense as it demeans human intelligence. *** !!!

    Exactly.

    Idiots.

    How is Modi going to help them?

    If they had voted for Yeddy, we could say they are seeing something in him that we aren't.

    But based on reports, they dont hav confidence in Yeddy but voted for Modi which will result in Yeddy coming to power.

    Lol.

    Must say Modi and Amit Shah are insanely good.

    Even among the Cong, there was a certain acceptance that nationally people would vote for BJP. Locally a different result was expected. It's more about personality than party in Karnataka's case.

    Kumaraswamy-Yeddy comparison is like Sachin-Umar Akmal. However, will probably not happen. The Governor is a Modi ******* and will give Yeddy-Reddy gang of thugs time to try and poach MLAs.

    The Congress are hoarding all their MLAs to a resort in Andhra Pradesh.

    It's Tamil Nadu all over again.

    This is like the carcass of the Titanic still afloat in the ocean - makes no sense.
    This is exactly what BJP did to Congress in Goa. It's time to payback i guess.

    If BJP is so confident about their corruption free govt and their developmental policies, why don't they dump their communal politics forever? The day they throw out religion from BJP and stop this divisive politics, i will support them.

    Looks like Biharis were smarter than Kannadigas w.r.t Nitish vs Modi, or Siddu vs Modi.

    But hey they did vote JDU Gowda clan probably the only party which is worse than BJP in Karnataka lol.

    I remember my college days when Jr Gowda was a Minister,those terrible days lol, destroyed Bangalore's night life.

    You are a cool fella but it wasn't too hard to guage your views from the way you phrased your posts.

    Not that supporting BJP is wrong.

    A few of my closest family members hardcore supporters of BJP.
    Anyone who sees his country above his religion and region will support Mr.Modi. And all my investments have been flying since this govt came into power. The perception of development is not an illusion. Itís a reality that I have witnessed myself.

    It actually works the other way around I think. BJP will never be freed from the strangle hold of the RSS until the minorities vote for them. There are a few fringe elements that should be kicked out. Extremist organisations like Shiv Sena should be kept at bay. And the system of RSS Ďdonatingí leaders should stop as well.
