    Just posting about Pinrayi doesn't mean I am communist. Communist lala land tops the health sector btw. You need to tell that to Emaraja Yogi. Needs to learn a lot from them, before asking someone to learn from UP.

    I am from the state which has 0 Feku's representatives. Even NoTA gets more votes than them here.

    it implies he said GST/demonetisation are failures ?

    With just over a year to go until the general election (assuming they donít do what Vajpayee did and call for an early election) the electorate will judge whether Modiís first term has been a success or not.

    I wouldn't call his term a failure. But neither was it a grand success.

    What gives me pleasure though is the disappointment in his blind followers.

    BJP should win again in 2018. Just about though. The next term will hopefully see them a lot more calmer and we will see if they are actually capable of anything particularly useful.

    I genuinely feel Rahul Gandhi is a more sincere and decent human being than Mr Modi.

    He should be ready by the 2024 elections to lead the country.

    The word I would use here is naive. Even people who spend time around him often mock him using the word "******", so I am not sure if that's the right candidate for India's PM post. Btw, why Rahul, why not any other Congress leader? Should I take you as another one of those Gandhi dynasty chamchas?

    I don't think he's trash. He will walk all over Rahul at this point because Modi has come through the ranks. He has learnt the ropes inch by inch and his experience is as grassroots as it gets.

    Rahul Gandhi though seems keen to undo the failures and arrogance of his family and to me comes across more sincere and decent a person than Modi.

    They may not win another majority (on their own) next time round but their alliance will finally get their majority in the Rajya Sabha by 2020 (something which hasnít happened before I think?).

    The PM doesnot receive everyone at the airport only the ones he considers "friends". So no protocol was broken. 4

    I don't know anything about Indian politics at state level but I always had the impression that in these north eastern states and southern states allies of BJP and Congress won rather than the major parties themselves?

    BJPís massive surge in the Northeast is a result of a patient but smart strategy

    The BJP is poised to form the government with a two-thirds majority in Tripura, will be a part of the government in Nagaland and may manage to cobble together a coalition in Meghalaya. The results, which are broadly in line with what BJP expected, are a validation of the unique strategy which the BJP has deployed in the northeast to realize its longstanding ambitions to expand in the region. This strategy has sought to play on an optimal mix of the promise of development, localization of identity and ideology and prudent coalition-building.

    Since May 2014, big ticket infrastructure projects have been initiated or inaugurated in the NER. The Modi government launched a ĎHill Area Development Programmeí and more recently approved a Rs. 5300 crore scheme for development of infrastructure in the NER. The Prime Minister himself has visited the region often and has encouraged regular visits by his ministers. Both the optics and delivery have found resonance among the people of the NER, especially the youth, who were eager for development after weariness of the insurgency and perceived neglect.

    Three of the eight northeastern states (Nagaland, Meghalaya and Mizoram) are Christian majority where the partyís positions on Hindutva and beef could have impacted voting intentions. However, BJP has managed to overcome these problems by reiterating its respect for the local customs and traditions. BJPís historically firm stand on illegal immigration from Bangladesh has helped gain the support of the ethnic identity voters in the areas most affected by the problem. This was one of the major factors in the BJP victory in Assam earlier.

    Problem in Karnataka is that even the BJP leader (Yeddy) is as bad as Congress (Siddu) and JD (Gowda family) alternatives. So even if BJP wins, quality of administration doesn't improve, unlike in other states where BJP actually delivers better governance.

    What happened here and what changed?
    True
    North East - it was always communist parties with occasional Congress

    South - mostly regional parties ( these Reginal parties join central govt like Andhra and others in NDA)

    What is the attraction for BJP in the pointless states of north east when these likely have little impact on national politics? Is there a senate (upper house) type body in India where every state has equal representation?

    Yes there's Rajya Sabha similar to House of Lords in Britain. But unlike US senate where every state is represented equally , in India they are assigned seats in proportion to their population.
    Bjp has a good PR team and with Congress at it's weakest , they are left unchallenged in the political arena.

    So both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha have proportional representation? If yes what does it achieve?

    Incorrect. Only Mizoram, Meghalaya and Nagaland have Christian majority. Rest all are Hindu majority. Anyway Northeast politics is mostly about tribal/ethnic diffrences and religion actually plays very little role in it.

    The representatives of states in the Rajya Sabha are elected by the elected members of State legislative assemblies. The election is held in accordance with the system of proportional representation by means of single transferable vote.

    India and US are different with regards to political system. Indian one is more similar to Canada. While US follows a completely federal structure , India is more of a quasi federal state having federal system with strong unitary bias.
    Indian federation is not the result of an agreement among states like the American federation. States have no right to secede from federation. The country is an integral whole and divided into different states only for convenience of administration. Thus it wouldn't make sense to give each state an equal representation.

    Why do you think that India having three majority Christian states doesn't get as much media attention. Hardly anyone knows that and tbh it's quite cool. I found out through PP only couple of years ago and was mind boggling at first.

    Forget Pakistan, the general perception over the world (based on my interactions) is that India is a Hindu state. Those who seem somewhat informed know that it is secular by constitution but even they very rarely know that there's multiple Christian majority states. I guess because you never see them in mainstream Indian representation.

    It's because the northeast states have majority tribal populations except in Assam I think. These people have never been very important throughout the history of the subcontinent as far as politics was concerned . Also they form a very small percentage of the total population do they don't really see them being represented much. They do get some mainstream attention I think because Mizoram has the highest literacy rate in India, my Naga ex girlfriend told me that kohima(Nagaland) was rated the cleanest village in Asia and I think some part of Meghalaya had the highest amount of rainfall recorded or something similar. Christianity in the northeast us quite recent and arrived only with the British which is probably why it's not given much importance. It has a much older history in a place like Kerala and has played an important role in shaping society there unlike the northeast

    What is saddening is that BJP with Vajpayee at helm couldn't get a second term and there is a good chance Modi who is not even close to Vajpayee might get a second term.

    Atal Bihari Vajpayee was too nice of a man and look what happened to him, he got betrayed by both Indian and Pakistani leaders. You need someone strong like Modi to fight these communists, Mulayams and congress lefties. Here is the speech by Atal Ji in Parliament when his Govt. was toppled in 1996:

    Commies have always been bloodsuckers. Could never understand why the idiots in West Bengal, Tripura and Kerala kept voting them back in. Now thankfully they're out from WB and Tripura. I'm not so sure about Kerala. Even though Congis are ruling there, in Kerala politics even a 3-4% swing in votes can bring the commies back in.

    But you deserve the govt you elect. So if the people of Kerala want the commies, they'll get their commies.

    Not that Mamata in WB and Cong in Kerala are any better.

    You won't believe the number of illegal Bangladeshi immigrants that the Congress has willingly allowed all these years here in Assam. It's pathetic.
