From,
The Friends of BJP on Social Networks.

Dear Nitin Gadkari ji,
  Namaskaar. This is a friendly letter from the social media friends of Bharatiya Janata party. We hope you are having a few minutes to read this important letter from people, who might still be fairly low on the hierarchy of voices that might be reaching you.

Why are we writing this to you? Because in simple terms, we genuinely care for the ideology Sangh Parivar stands for, the bright future India deserves, and most importantly, to give a fresh set of ideas to a party that claims to represent the "Bharatiyata", the core of India.

So what is in this letter that you don't hear from top level think tanks and strategists surrounding you? We think there's a lot. The suggestions might sound ordinary at times, but this is unpaid and unforced section of Young India speaking to you. A country where almost 2/3rd of the population is below the age of 35, their opinion is what is showing up in most of this letter. It would be your final judgment of course to take it or leave it, but just remember...these are the people who can make or break a large part of internet literate segment of 2014 voters of BJP.

So here we start, in no particular order:

1> Counter Attack: Turn back the clock a couple of months. Every news channel was on BJP's 'porngate' episode. Congress was conducting road show after road show, totally taking this negative publicity of BJP to masses. But what did BJP do when the infamous Abhishek Manu Singhvi CD came out? Yes, there were some restrictions he cleverly managed from court. But the entire social media knew what was happening. This was 100 times more serious a issue for the nation considering who and where parts. Did BJP take this in a big way to the masses? Did they conduct road shows? Did they make sure this is a big topic for news debates or editorials? In terms of intensity, BJP failed miserably we should say. Even for a seemingly fake case like Gujarat assembly porn watch, far more damage was done by anti-BJP forces at ground level. So sir, just eloquent parliament speeches can only go so far. BJP as a party is squandering serious opportunities like Rajbala's death during Ramdev's camp's midnight crackdown, AMS tape, ND Tiwari paternity case and Maderna case. No one is suggesting to hit below the belt or send un-parliamentary messages. But at least counter attack decently to get the core issue to the potential voters.

2> Scams and Propaganda: 2004-2012 must have been India's worst scam period. Majority of these scams are undoubtedly due to Congress party's misrule and their hapless "coalition dharma". Social media is well versed with details of CWG, President's land issues, 2G, Bofors, Coal gate, Karnataka Wakf Scam, Andhra Pradesh scams involving YSR family, Land grabbing in a number of Congress ruled states, Haryana land scam involving a reputed dynasty foundation, Mining frauds involving non-BJP ruled states and much more. How effective has been BJP here? When Congress has succeeded in equating Mining Scam = BJP, due to sustained propaganda, where is the PR arm of BJP? How much of the RTI support group muscle has BJP used till date? In states like Karnataka, where you have your own government, how many went to prison for Wakf Scam kind of massive loot? Yes, most people know that Congress is involved in these big scams, but where are the resignations? How many tainted CMs like Sheila Dikshit or their Ministers at state levels have quit? How many central ministers went on jail due to BJP's sustained efforts? Minuscule we must say. Yes, sir, as a principal opposition party, you can do a LOT better!

3> Media Management: If you have not grabbed this info by now, sir, electronic media for most part is termed as "paid media" in social media discussions. It's almost a synonym today. Such is the poor image and credibility of India's TV channels. One of the key reason being their rabid anti-Hindu propaganda and in particular anti-Sangh or anti-BJP propaganda. You can go through Karnataka Bhagavad Gita episode, UP's Sushma Swaraj and Mayawati "heartless" episode, or Delhi court's Mohan Bhagwat's Karkare episode. Media has been ruthless and loud in defaming BJP at every given opportunity. Most of the times, they get caught on social media like Twitter, Blogs and Facebook. But has BJP used that info? If yes, how effectively? When Karnataka Bhagavad Gita Abhiyana was projected as a state sponsored episode, why didn't BJP seek legal course against a prominent media house to prevent such recurrences in the future? When a TV program insulted 5 crore Gujaratis as "traditionally effete people" showing Narendra Modi's visuals, where was the noise from BJP? When Sushma Swaraj was misinterpreted, why didn't BJP seek a public apology from another media house? When lies are propagated that 2002 was India's worst minority dead-body count, why is BJP not talking about the unfortunate Nellie massacre from 1983 to give the truth to people?

Not countering the negative and baseless propaganda is hurting BJP, and also not projecting the pro-BJP news items. For example, many Christian candidates winning in Goa under Manohar Parrikar's leadership should have been a serious topic of discussion when it involves a "Hindutva" party per media created image. How come your strategists, friendly aspects in media and foot soldiers didn't take that to millions of homes?  When Karnataka chose its latest CM via secret ballot, that could have been projected as a US style primary, instead of what media projected as "puppet" selection. Where is the credit for superbly implementing Bengaluru Metro? How about Narmada canal wonders? How many even remember today driving on Golden Quadrilateral that it was Vajpayee's government that did wonders? Where are the positives from Chhattisgarh, Bihar, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh etc.? Web based Yuvai TV is a good initiative by some energetic individuals, but you have miles to run before you can catch-up anywhere closer to the grip anti-BJP ideology has on Indian print and electronic media. The media which gave serious negative publicity to one unverified Varun Gandhi speech, never did even 1% of that damage to Congress for a veteran Congress leader Kagodu Thimmappa's "cut Hindutva hands" hate speech.

Sir, in short, you need huge efforts on media management side. Own media houses, manage current media houses and work on creating a pro-Sangh alliance of broadcasting outlets. This is easier said than done, but you might not be gauging the ripple effect of negative publicity, day-in and day-out.

4> Image Makeover: Sorry to say this Mr.Gadkari, many in the young India we interact with, perceive BJP today mostly as a "B team of Congress". Per social media, the true opposition in India today are: a) Supreme Court. b) Social Media. c) Subramanian Swamy. The "3S Opposition" to be put it that way:) That's a serious problem you need to work on. Congress talks of secularism, you also do it now. Congress talks of socialistic populism, you also talk the same. Congress talks half-heartedly about Lokpal & other watch dogs, and you also do the same. Congress is a High Command driven decision making system, and you are also the same now. Congress talks of reservation, and you do that too. Congress talks of growth and you too do that. We understand that many of these are political compulsions. But where is the difference for a casual observer? The difference was evident 22 years back, but not anymore! You should be able to convey to a 22 year old voter, "what is BJP" and "how is is different from Congress" in 5 to 10 sentences. Can you do it sir?

More importantly, not just saying why BJP is "different". But living by that policy at all states that BJP is ruling, is far more important. If you stand for Lokpal, implement good Lokayukta policies across your ruled states. If you stand by for anti-cow-slaughter, then legally push the Governors who are becoming impediment for the same.

5> Projection of a PM Candidate: BJP is a democratic party, so there is always an opening for dissent or healthy competition. This is a great difference compared to a dynasty centric sycophantic setup on the Congress side. But since we have less than 18 months for campaigning to start for 2014 elections, you need to project your PM candidate soon. Project candidates for all key positions like Home, Law, Deputy PM (if any), Party Office bearers openly and clearly. Clarity is most important here, in spite of the inherent risks involved in projecting earlier. There's always a chance of polarization of the voters, but without a projection, BJP will be playing into the hands of Congress and media's negative speculations. We wish to inform you that the popular names for top positions on the social media are Narendra Modi and Subramanian Swamy for quite some time. Those two are more popular with young Indians than any of your Delhi based senior leadership. You can run online polls or surveys to feel the pulse better yourself.

6> Standing for Party Loyalists: Bangaru Laxman was in news, albeit negatively, last week. We are not suggesting to protect any corrupt or wrong-doer. But many voices on social network suggested that he was unfairly trapped, when he had no decision making capability as a minister or anything... worse, he seemingly offered a receipt too. Where was BJP's defence for him? Did you see how Congress stood behind P Chidambaram and SM Krishna when they have much worse charges? Did you forget that "Dalit" card is very powerful in India? To take this topic a step further, lots of people in young India feel that BJP has resorted to use and throw policy over the past few years. Kalyan Singh, BS Yeddyurappa, Uma Bharati, Vasundhara Raje, BC Khanduri are some examples of mass leaders who are either sidelined or under-utilized by BJP today. What we, on the social network feel, is that your party pays too much attention to what pro-Congress media plays out about your leaders. As a result, you are quick to succumb to media pressure or Congress propaganda. What you might not be realizing sir is that, you are getting trapped in their strategy to strip BJP off its mass leaders, the people who can win states on their shoulders. Yes, there will be charges against them, but you need to balance the "party with a difference" tag with "Indian rules that everyone else plays with". Hope you get our message. One of the loudest criticism of BJP's top 4 or 5 leaders today at Delhi, is that, they hardly can win any states with their strategy or charm or mass appeal. Don't get us wrong for this criticism. Ponder upon, why people are saying that.

By the way, if your party was sleeping, Sonia Gandhi, the UPA chairperson, was shown with up to $19 billion as assets by an influential Business Insider magazine. This is against just a crore or two of declared assets by the same person. Some quick maths indicate that that amount may be almost a crore TIMES bigger than Bangaru Laxman's amount in question. Yes, one crore times nearly sir.. Hope you ponder more on a huge missed opportunity!

7> Legal Muscle:  Who doesn't know Subramanian Swamy? Of course everyone knows this one man show, in the name of Janata party from Tamil Nadu. But here is the scoop. Have you wondered how a party, with zero MLAs and zero MPs in India, is almost bringing the mighty Congress empire to its knees via legal muscle? On the other side, BJP, a party with celebrity lawyers, has not done anything substantial to get this government on its knees. Be it CWG, or 2G or any scam worth its name, BJP lawyers are not fighting to give a fatal blow to any key minister of Congress. In fact, hush-hush talk on social media suggests that some key lawyers might even have worked in favour of some accused on the Congress roaster. Serious problem sir.. Take a deep breath and analyze the situation as well as the perception.

8> "Bharatiya" issues: We know that BJP is strongly for Kashmir pandits's return rights, hanging of anti-nationals like Kasab & Afzal, deportation of Bangladeshi infiltrators, bringing North East people to mainstream, among other sensitive but important topics. But sir, you can do far better. RSS has the world's largest grass root presence. Millions of volunteers are available to take the Bharatiyata message to lakhs of villages through them. In spite of them, if BJP is not able to educate an average Indian about the massive security & integration risks, resulting out of votebank politics. A simple example. Till earlier this year, most of us didn't even know about the plight of Hindu refugees from Pakistan Occupied Kashmir. Now when we hear the separatist views highlighted on English channels, we see the hypocrisy of sidelining the SC/ST Hindu plight in Jammu's refugee camps. Please work on the Bharatiya issues aggressively taking sincere help from the cadres.

9> Alliance in Key States: Many of us view the same sentiments here. There are over 240 Lok Sabha seats in TN, AP, WB,  Kerala,  Odisa and UP. That's just under 30 seats to half way of Indian parliament's lower house. Where are the allies of BJP here? If an election is held today, will BJP be able to win even 20% of these crucial seats? Without them, how can you dream of 2014? Congress has almost given 2014 to BJP on platter via a corrupt and inept regime. We are sure you have serious strategists working with you on this topic, but we just thought, we inform you nearly 2 years before the next scheduled election, as we see very little on the ground in these states.

10> Not wasting time: If you ever open a Twitter account and seek opinion on how to improve BJP's chances, we guarantee, this topic will come up. This particular topic is from those who are frustrated with BJP's recent attempts to portray itself as secular. The message from them to you is that you should focus on your Core Ideology. India is secular because Hindus are mostly secular. That's the truth. Take more advice from the super successful undercurrent of Indian society, the RSS. For many people like us, BJP is just one major project of the Sangh Parivar, among the 1,60,000 Bharatiya projects they have! Don't feel bad, but that's how young India that we interact with perceives your party. So don't ever cut the umbilical chord with the ideological nerve center.

BJP needs to first convince 82% of Indians, who are Hindus of all segments and castes, that it is their best hope. That's a huge challenge considering 64 years of systematic division of Hindu votes into innumerable caste and language vote categories. If you can manage to unite them, rest will fall in place. Your portrayal of Rama Rajya or Hindu Rashtra has been severely distorted as "Hindus Only" India by your detractors. We know that's not the case, but you have to do a stellar job selling that to your potential voters. We know on social media that Congress is severely "Minority first" ideology right from Khilafat movement days 92 years back. There's nothing surprising at all to a careful observers. But it's a joke that they can stand in public and term BJP as communal and claim themselves as Secular. This is even after Shah Bano or UP Muslim communal reservation speeches. This is where BJP failed big time. Correction time now! Primarily being pro-Hindu or standing for Hindu human rights, does NOT mean, being anti-Muslim or anti-Minority. Every country has major parties catering to the majority's wishes and aspirations. Opposing minority appeasement like massive (and un-Islamic) Hajj subsidy, is not opposing minority rights. Narendra Modi's all-inclusive development is just one example you can use with facts and figures, minus any rhetoric.

11> Engaging with Digital World: Social media may be in its infancy in India, but sir, let us assure you, it has already cut some major victories. Radia tapes were discussed by mainstream media due to social media pressure. Various riots were even reported because of social media trends. Numerous shady scams and shady acts like AMS CD, came out due to buzz on social media. BJP needs to use this nascent opportunity, like the successful Subramanian Swamy, via Tweeple conferences and weekly online chats to feel the pulse. This can also be used immensely to perpetuate the superb development efforts of various BJP state governments. We might be a few million on web today, and no way comparable to the 100s of millions in rural India, but the trend from here can only be one-directional. More strength to social media and we hope you become an early conqueror of this open space. As a first step, you can also instruct your IT cells to get key digests of social media's political topics, and circulate the gist among the decision makers of the party. We assure you, there's immense information out on Twitter, blogs and Facebook, that you can win any issue in a debate tomorrow! Encourage all your key leaders and parliamentarians to be on social media, and truly engage with the people when time permits. Most importantly, listen to BJP supporters and sympathizers, when they criticize your policies, instead of blocking them to shut their voice.


We hope you read till here, and more importantly realized WHY we are writing this open letter to you. Now please act precisely and in a timely fashion. You know it and we know it... the ONLY party in India today, that can win 3 digit Lok Sabha seats other than Congress, is BJP. Don't let down the folks opposing Congress..for India's sake!

- Signing off with a loud "Vande Mataram"
Your Social Media Friends.

  1. I totally concur the whole points raised in the above letter.
    We want Narendra Modi, Dr Subramanian Swamy, Meenakshi Lekhi, Nirmala Sitaraman to name a few to be moved to Centre and projected as part of the Union Cabinet in 2014 than many of the people who u have in mind. The people cutting across age have faith on the above performers. We want to safeguard the Bharath to start with and achieve Akhand Bharath.

    Request you to take this as positive suggesstion and approach the 2014 polls.

  2. Please send this open letter to Media Organisations for two reasons.
    Media should know what Social Media thinks. And this is the fastest way to let all read about 'Whats wrong with BJP?'. This will add to pressures on BJP think tank. Even if a small channel like Zee news publishes this letter. It will go viral.

  3. Great job by Kiran! Here are some points from my side.

    1) Andhra Pradesh is a key state for BJP in the coming years. BJP should have some big name as a state in charge instead of the current incharge Mr. Purushottam Rupala. Andhra Pradesh, though is well managed by Mr. Kishan Reddy, there is an urgent need for a big national leader to focus more time in Andhra Pradesh and tour districts to meet people. Say, someone like Ravi Shankar Prasad should take over as AP in charge.

    2. As Kiran pointed out, there is an urgent necessity to make a lot of noise about Kashmiri Pandits and demand the government to publish a white paper on the drastic reduction of KPs in the valley between 1955 and 2012. That white paper alone will speak volumes about the damage Congress did to KPs.

    1. Wonderfully written Kiran. All PTs feelings in your letter.
      Few points regarding Andhra:
      1. I am from Coastal Andhra (non-telangana) region. BJP is trying to cash-in telangana sentiment which is fine but they should come out with clear cut strategy. More articulated as to how they are going to help Andhra region in building new capital, share Godavari, Krishna waters etc, new development in this region etc.
      Till now no party dared to talk about this in Andhra region. This will make people trust you. You can surely win hearts of Andhra people as well. In worst case you will atleast win Telangana who will know your honesty.

    2. Boss BJP has got Congressmen as infilterators in the key positions. The mission is to finish BJP. They need to look at the top from the very top of BJP.
      I foresee BJP as a historic party within next five years..!

  4. Absolutely agree with the chronology. In fact it is high time BJP introspect and come out with a valuable game plan to not just unseat CON but to take over the country.

    The suggestions are more than valid and trust you, Sir, being the President of BJP, take note of these valuable points and take corrective measures where necessary.

  6. Bring BJP so that we become more superstitious and believe in Killing Muslims and Christians. Instead of writing to BJP Supremo, you should have written to People of India, then we (the people of India) might have respected your letter.

    I am not a congress fan, but i am neither a BJP fan. A Nitish Kumar, Navin Patnaiketc would make heavenly PM's than Modi and Swami.

    God Bless you.

    1. Saina, respect your views. However, try to understand that killing of Muslims and Christians are part of the polarized vote bank political agenda of Congress than the BJP. A look into the history of India, post independence under Congress rule will give you a very alarming picture which perhaps if you so chose to not believe, you could, yet remain a blatant fact! That BJP is a scapegoat of this vote bank politics is needless to be emphasized. But BJP does not have aggressive media management to bring the common man to comfort....sadly.

    2. Aasman, This country has 90 crore Hindus, of which more than 80 percent still believe in Cow, Astrology and Krishna. And if you are willing to believe that these beliefs are because of Illiteracy or Lack of Options, you are certainly wrong. Hinduism for all of its "Superstions" and other issues, is by far the least regressive Religion(if you call it a Religion). Now If a close to 70 crore people do not get the opportunity to get a leader of their Religion, it is Outrageous for ANY Society. So I do demand a Ruler of this country who follows Hinduism.
      For the oppositions to names like NM or Swamy. NM is projected to be crusader of 2002 Riots. I shall talk in pure "public" perceptions. Suppose he did not stop the rioters in 2002, and weakened the police action to support them. But he has made remedies with the minority groups in last 10 years. Certainly he did not believe to be Prime Minister just after the blot of Riots came on him in 2002. His opposition is based on 2002 alone. No one judges his UNBIASED policies in 10 years. Are we certainly sure that he want ruled upon other hardcore Right Wing at that moment, given that he was made CM less than an year before and had not been any post holder before? To come such a long in just 10 years solely on Administrative abilities and without playing Caste/Region/Religion politics is UNHEARD in India. Sardar Patel too was accused by Gandhi/Azad of flaming Hindu Sentiments in 1947. But its his job of Uniting India that we remember him to be an Able administrator. And how can one believe party changers like Nitish who left Janta Dal because Laalu would not let him flourish? And who then deserted his so called Guru George Fernandes. Are you sure that he wont play dirty Politics to be in Power in future? Or Patnaik, whose only USP is that he is clean, though his whole cabinet in Orrisa is full of Corrupt. Do we need another MMS?. Well its the ability to administrate and deliver at crucial moments that defines a Leader. Can anyone point to ANY other Politician, who would not hold any Central position would be Praised upon for Inclusiveness by both CHINESE and US? Thats a RARE distinction.
      One should choose their leaders wisely. Religon/Caste/Region come only after the stomach is filled. And India needs an Administrator not only a Politician.

    3. "regressive Religion(if you call it a Religion)"

      That itself shows your intentions behind that big paragraph man. Move to Pakistan and enjoy lesser *superstitions* if you like. Kiran rightly said "India is secular because Hindus are mostly secular". We may be superstitious(as you termed it, we call it faith) but compassion and tolerance is integral part of our ideology.

  7. What I feel is that BJP too, might be aware of all these things. But here is a point to be noted. Congress have ruled this country for over 60 years and have gathered enough amount of money from looting the nation, which they put in their campaigns, road shows, bribery etc. They have the money power. It is not the case with BJP. Huge amounts of money would be spent in the campaigning for 2014 elections. BJP is scarce of financial freedom. This is the main issue why they cannot reach out to the people. Congress will never face these issues.

BJP should more concentrate on AP as well.. BJP winning Mahaboobnagar polls recently is a 1st step and i hope it should more concentrate on AP by getting prominent national leaders like Modi ji to AP... you wouldnt believe AP youth support for Modi-ji.. Facebook done a lot of good of promoting Gujarath's solar power plants etc... and even majority of farmers in AP knows there is no power cut in Gujarath.

  14. Kiran one fact not to be ignored.Our struggle is not with Congress alone.Finally It is with Muslims.And for that we are not prepared.BJP has responsibility to channelize energies and formulate opinions on what rights & duties associated for being called an Indian Citizen.Forces moved away from VHP,Bajrang Dal,are to work in tandem.We cannot treat them as outsiders all the while making use of them.Extreme wing will be needed more as move along for final slaught.

    1. @RAGS TO RICHES - A COSMIC WAY
      I strongly disagree with your views. BJP is not anti-Muslim. The idea of Hindustan, Bharath, or, India is the same. All those who believe in our heritage, respect our social customs, culture, live in harmony, are part of us, irrespective of their religious beliefs which they can practice without affecting others, or, obstructing the nation's constitution, laws.

      BJP's goal is to provide good governance, peace, prosperity, equal opportunity to all.

      Citizens of all faith have equal rights in India, and it will remain so. And Hindus have no problem with that. If the issue is abuse of freedom to impose something, then that can always be tackled via appropriate legal means.

  17. 1. Social Media are voices from the Urban and Semi-Urban areas. The voters in Urban areas and educated class are mostly the BJP supporters. But, what about the RURAL areas? This forms the majority of the LOK SABHA seats!! Social Media doesnt help in propagating all these info to the rural areas!!

    2. Salutes to Narendra Modi, Subramanya Swamy and other leaders...but they are not Pan-INDIA leaders. Modiji is famous for his development mantra in URBAN areas...but in RURAL areas, the Paid-Media influences his image!! People look through the eyes of the tainted media.

    3. The strategies has to be planned for the Grassroots of the society...in India, the majority of the Grassroots (vote base) are in RURAL areas...and unfortunately, BJP does not have much cadres in this section!! Congress can sweep the RURAL base in one-shot...like writing off the Agriculture loan, NREGA and other SOPs in the last year of the TERM. BJP cannot oppose such schemes...and if it does, the media will paint BJP as anti-poor...

    Man...even my parents and relatives who vote ONLY for BJP...still scold BJP just because Paid-Media keeps bitching about BJP...they blow out even minor issues!!
    "Repeated Lie Often Becomes Truth"!! When paid-media can influence the people in Urban areas then we cant think about their influence in RURAL areas!!

    Kali Yuga at its peak...Kali-yuga has an effect of occasionally distorting the minds of even good people and MEDIA has successfully demonstrated its capabilities by being the right-arm of Kali (daemon).

    We should stop pressurizing the Top Leadership - Instead of questioning the Top Management, it is time we propose solutions or be that part of the solution...I am ardent supporter of BJP and no offences meant through this comment. Thanks for your understanding. Jai Hind!!

    1. Good points mate. BJP needs an aggressive media management of its own to come out of the damaging cloak that gets adorned over them time and time again by the CON led #Paid Media, both visual and print. People, be it urban, rural or Arcadian gets to believe what is aggressively chanted into their ears with incessant frequency. Unless there is a measure to the contrary, common people mostly depend their beliefs on superfluous and canard facts spoon fed to by Media. BJP will need to address that.

    Excellent job .. I have tried to out it on facebook pages of BJP.. hope it gets circulated. BJP should not repeat its mistake by not projecting a PM candidate in 2014. In 2009 , they did the same and lost. More than the suggestions to BJP , suggestion to all of us , the only way BJP can back to power , WE VOTE.. people who sit on web and get angry on BJP dont VOTE. real voters of congress are not on web. Lets change the trend. Lets all VOTE FOR BJP in 2014.

  21. Hi Kiran,

    Execellent point. just an addition pls highlight the Yedurappa issue also how BJP played into the hands of media nd theor masters congress. Also y they didnt go across town to highlight wen his stand was vindicated by court.
    Also Y is BJP so interested in going to these media houses where anti-BJP mindset is prevelant. y dont they instead shun them and go and work at grassroot level with people. they wont need any of these. look how Rahul magic failed in UP

  22. Dear Kiran, It would be better if you can also highlight why RSS killed our beloved Bapu? Why you have turned a blind eye on yeddurappa's corruption. Why are you defending Bangaru laxman? For me Bangaru Laxman, Yeddyruppa, Kalmadi, A.Raja are corrupt. You are pointed towards a dividing india. We must stay UNITED !!! Jai Hind

    1. @Rahul garg: Although I do not feel it worth answering these questions, how can somebody be so naive or pretend to be naive. In case you are so naive then you definitely deserve to be looted by Congis.

      RSS never killed Gandhi, Godse was not member of RSS at that time, and your supreme court has aquitted RSS of this baseless allegation years ago.

      Do you know we weigh Gold and Coal in different balances because of their size so acts of Bangaru and Yadurappa are not even comparable to A Rajas or Kalmadis of the Congress. So do not fool the people by focusing on neon light and stealing the sun.

      Anyways I am sure you will pretend not to understand this so let be it.

    2. How about Sonia Gandhi (Oil for Food Coupons, HDW , Bofors, Tatra (Started in 1986) , Shiela Dixit, Rajeev Gandhi (bofor, HDW, Tatra), Indira Gandhi ( State Bank Scam), Shiela Dixit (CWG).
      Bangaru Laxman was trapped, he should not have taken cash for party fund.
      Karnataka highcourt actually removed entire paragraph from Lokyaukta report which pointed finger at Yeddurappa.

      you seem to be selective listener and blind follower of dynasty

  30. Sadly BJP is not inspiring a lot of confidence of whether they are ready to lead the nation or not. Those in the party should realise that NOW is the time to make an indelible mark on the history of our country and finish "the dynasty" rule forever. If you play at the hands of the so called "secular" forces now, no body will ever support you again. Rise above petty politics and personal agendas, and work towards something that is so much greater then anyone of us. We are talking about one of the finest nations in the world, suffering from centuries of misrule, misery, exploitation, now looking to assert its identity in order to get back its former glory. ASSERT YOURSELF, be clear in your head about what you stand for, and trust me the masses will follow you. And for gods sake, please project a pm candidate !!

  31. 1>the article is superb.well drafted and super points.bjp must have atleast 1 of its ear to twitter and facebook.

    2>only when voting percentage is taken to atleast 75 in loksabha elections,and every other elections can the run of powerfull gang of people voting to get what they want will be stopped .whatever bjp has done to increase voting percentage is nothing/zero if we look at its impact at the ground .
    best way to increase the chance of winning for bjp is to ensure higher voting percentages.one of the easiest and most effective way for bjp to come to power.please think on the multiple ways to do this.on the day of dr ambdekar jayanthi please ask all your partymen and leaders to ask people of india to vote w/out fail .do a tv ad campaign .put this issue in all school curriculum.nobody can object to it.give short handout showing people how not voting of good section of people helps casteist politics or any united powerful gang to vote for someparty and get back what it wants in return.
    DO:youth should be asked to call each and every freind in his mobile contact list and ensure they vote.
    3>DO:send bulk sms to all those people who opt for it on certain key issues where point is short and punchy. usage of sms is very imp.best way to reach youth.

  34. I think if Advani declares that he is not interested in the PM post, and he then canvasses actively for the party, I think with Modi declared as it's PM candidate India would see good result in 2014. But Modi himself cannot come forward right now, because of 2012 elections in Gujarat. If they were to declare him PM right now, as Gujarat may not vote for Modi because of the fear of losing him. They first need to develop a second level leadership in Gujarat to pass on the mantle.

    1. Totally Agree with you. Our identity is Hinduism. Even Sangh Parivaar is shy of this identity, forget about others.
      Before independence, our organization names use to have Hindu in it. After independence it became, "Rashtra" or "Bharati" . Now it starts with "India". Even our people feel shy of using Hindu word in any organization or institution they form.
      When you ask questions, the adhikari will give long circuitous answer to justify.

    2. People are scared, apologetic of their Hindu identity. An example, in my apartment, builder is ready to build a temple free of cost. You know what, secularists immediately debunked idea because India is secular country. Some were saying this is communal to build temple. Some saying too sensitive. Other religionists ( xchians, islamists) were vocal and Hindues were acting like tamed creatures. In a majority of 95% , Hindu could not get gumption to get a temple which is being given free of cost by builder. Why because of such environment created by Media, acivists which filled hindus with sense of guilt and apology for their Hindu identity. Some opposing persons even said, do not spoil Bangalore!! or how could one think of a idea of temple in the apartment.
      My GOD. I am not sure, what is in store for Hindu Identity in future. I am pessimistic on this now.

  37. Since coming to the power in 1998, BJP's hidden inferiority complex came to the surface in the sense that they also started desiring to be identified with India's intellectual elites and be acceptable to them. These elitists are primarily leftists and rabid anti-Hindu in their character. Many of the BJP's decisions (like increasing Haj subsidy and giving Amartya Sen Bharat Ratna) emerged from BJP leadership's hidden desire to be acceptable to these leftists.

    Almost none of these so called 2nd generation BJP leaders were capable of creating an intellectual constituency of their own. Veer Savarkar, Rajgopalachari and Deen Dayal Uadhyaya were few giants in the past who had attempted that up to varied degree of success but nobody, during the 90s tried to capitalize on their work or tried advancing a more contemporary philosophy to create an intellectual environment different from leftist narrative which gripped the country right at the time of independence. None of this happened during late 90s when the conditions were most favorable to breakaway form leftist hegemony. Instead, a reverse and fatal attraction to the same philosophy, based on the myth created by paid historians, happened. This was pretty much like a 'Reverse Stockholm Syndrom'. BJP grabbed the power and got attracted to its fatal flaws. . Of course, I’m not suggesting that this transformation was total and complete.

    Many of BJP’s second generation leaders are pretty much in the awe of this cult till date. That is why I believe, ABV, is up to certain extent responsible for current state of affairs in BJP. Except Narendra Modi, most people belonging to BJP, particularly those residing in Delhi are in grip of same attraction.

    That’s why you see the field day these media wallahs have in their studios. The reason is, many of these BJP wallahs also feel guilty of those crimes they are accused of by media, which we social media wallahs feel are grossly unfairly attributed to them. We see a total lack of response from BJP leadership or a meek surrender. Nobody from BJP is there to challenge those flawed reports, sue them in court or put them to the task. NaMo is the only exception on this account.

    Every single flaw as you listed above is a causal effect of this only, be it BJP being a “B team” of Congress, BJP’s inability to define itself in 5/10 sentences etc-2. There is absolutely no intellectual courage to back the inner strength needed to stand up and file a case in the court of law to show wrongdoers their rightful place. Today, you pick a random leader of BJP in Delhi and he will talk the same language of social justice and populism etc-2.

    Frankly speaking, this project of Sangh has failed. A new beginning is needed may be under the leadership of Narendra Modi.

  38. The real problem is when too many people think that can become PM, they forgot why they want to become PM. BJP can never return to power unless come up with a PM name...

    Atleast in BJP, I expect that people shd remember that they are are in parliament for serving their country not to amass wealth(ingeneral, they never do), not to satisfy ego, never to show their colleague that they are better....Its time to decide their PM candidate or leave another 5 years for Cong to loot country as they are doing for last many years...For country sake, wake up BJP

  39. Excellent piece. Hope BJP absorbs most of the points made and starts working on internal issues well in advance of 2014.

    Agree that BJP needs a mass leader with state winning capability with their strategy or charm or mass appeal in the core group in Delhi (and not LK Advani as I don’t believe the youth identifies with him irrespective of his contribution to the country). Maybe NM should be elevated to Delhi, post Gujarat elections, and eventually be nominated BJP’s PM candidate. Timing will be key as JDU is only looking for a reason to break-up NDA and they can do a BJD on BJP. Even if we lose JDU, we could get BJD and AIADMK into the fold.

    Also agree BJP is sometimes slow in reacting. Didn’t see them take the recent “Maharashtra Farmer Suicide Note: DO NOT Vote for CONGRESS and NCP” news to the people as well. Or any TV debate on this!!

    Nice to see Friends of BJP upping the tempo for 2014. Country (urban & rural India) will be doomed if UPA gets another term! Hope BJP wakes up and people give them an opportunity to run the country.

  42. Its very well written and very true but still it lacks one major point that is hurting the party most and that is ignorance of real hardcore ground level loyal party workers and RSS supporters at ground level. Loyal party workers are getting frustrated day by day as they are continuously being ignored in favour of people from outside. People with money and muscle are being promoted and valued more than people who really believe in ideology of sangh parivar and who have worked for decade without gaining anything for themselves. In many states today people who never believed in ideology and who have just jumped from other parties just to gain power are deciding who will get ticket and who will not. Please do not ignore your ground level workers. They are still the one who work for party without asking for anything in return otherwise the party is doomed to go congress way.

  44. No matter how much i like NaMo for his governance,i personally feel that he should not be projected as PM candidate.
    I think he does not have as much "acceptability" factor as required. More so when some of BJP's allies like JDU dont even like to stand with him.
    Projecting him as PM would lead into unnecessary NDA collapse and firefighting and repairing the damage.Better would be to promote Sushma Swaraj as PM candidate.Being a woman and experienced enough,she is the right choice. Comments welcome!

    1. This post is a fit case to apply Gabbar theory, i.e., "Jo Darr gaya, Woh mar gaya".

      There is enough of appeasement from BJP on the so-called acceptability factor. Any more of appeasement, and BJP will be dead. I'm ready to give this in writing. The present day charge on BJP for it being Congress's B team sticks just coz BJP tried a little too hard to be acceptable. Acceptable to whom? To those who subscribe to same theory of secularism which BJP never tired of calling pseudo-secularism in 90s? It's time for BJP to be true to its character.

      The current state of BJP is due to its readiness to be acceptable to those people who belong to the school of Nehruvian secularism. The decline in the high moral standard in BJP's character is a direct fallout of it. This correlation is strong and simple to understand. If you are Nehruvian secular => You are a fraud and hence corrupt.

      BJP is destined to remain where it is, if it does not chart its own course boldly.

    2. As far as attracting allies is concerned, political parties loose no time in switching the loyalties if they sense the wind is blowing the other way. BJP has to grow its stature first. Allies will come to it on their own. This is BJP's chance to change the script of the game and not just play the same game whose rules are set of their principal ideological opponents. Remember, even Congress adopted an election strategy in 2002 Gujarat which was termed as "Soft Hindutva" by many. Today the same Congress is biggest supporter of Teesta and company.

      This is the biggest intellectual challenge that BJP faces today. Sadly, there are hardly anybody who is left in Delhi BJP to pick up this challenge. To promote SS on the acceptability factor is loosing the battle even before it begins. This would be a totally wrong reason to project her.

      To project her coz she represents the right ideology is another matter.

  48. I hope Gadkari and BJP top leaders will read this blog & the comments and take views expressed here very seriously. I have no hesitation to say that most of BJP supporters are frustrated the way BJP behaving recently.
    I had a great respect, hope and expectation from Gadkari , not any more. The UP debacle and recent Jharkhand RS election episode made me ask myself if Gadkari really can lead the party.
    BJP is unable to face the assult by the paid media and losts its will to fight. I think that BJP top leaders are more worried about their image in the media than the party and the country. These leaders are bullied by the media and have no spine to stand-up. These top leaders have no guts to fight the media, corrupt govt., and congress. More than congress, I blame these BJP leaders for sorry state of the country.
    I have a very strong feeling that, to preserve their politically currect image, these BJP leaders will NOT support Sri Modi for the PM and as a result, BJP will lose very badly in the next LS election. That is the end of BJP. I don’t know what is the fate of this country if this happens. I see no hope for India without a political party rooted on the culture of this country. I sincerely hope that I will be proven wrong. I wish that, if not for PM, at least Modi will be elected as BJP president, Only Modi can bring fresh hope. God bless Sri Modi.

  49. How about Sunil Joshi (of UP fame) as PM candidate, that way Gadkari can nutralize NaMo and ensure that Congress can come again.

  50. The BJP supporter is sick and tired of Delhi based BJP leadership. Period. God knows who these people are serving but they are definitely not serving BJP.

    To this leadership,

    Please listen carefully. If BJP looses elections in 2014 it will not only be end of BJP but each one of you will also be forced to shut down your individual shops for whatever purpose you are using them. Coz if BJP can't win 2014, it can never win it. So for your own sake, think beyond yourself. At least now.

  57. Hope & Emotions can hinder ones Vision & then they may tend to overlook critical signals/symptoms.

    Fact: BJP is now the "B team of Congress"!!
    Primary objective is to Destroy all its Mass Leaders before 2014.
    Secondary objective is to keep pretending to be a substitute for Congress, so that people can be easily & timely Pacified.

    Now, going by the trend in recent months BJP is going to do numerous more Blunders than seen till now, so that it can position itself better to lose in 2014.
    Secondly, BJP will never project Modi as CM.

    So the only solution to hope for in 2014 is:
    "Modi-Jaya-Naveen-Mamata-Nitish-BSY-fewOthers"
    Maybe Badal n Chauhan will come out supporting Modi.
    This front will need serious support from Baba Ramdev & Shri Shri, to gain in Rural India.

  58. Respected Vinayji and my fellow BJP supporters,
    I would like to express my appreciation in this brilliant article which thoroughly articulates the problem ailing the BJP in present times. Driven by my desire to see BJP win elections and steer India on the path of development, I am expressing my suggestions on how to improve BJP specifically regarding Point no. 5 in the article, which is 'Projection of a PM candidate'. I would like to rename it as "Projection of a leader under which election would be fought or of MLCs/MLAs/MPs till the next election is fought". In my humble opinion, there should always be a leader of BJP in every state where it aspires to fight elections and he/she may/may not be the party president of that state. The process of selecting that leader can be done in the following manner,
    1> If BJP decides to select a leader well in advance, even before the candidates (MLC/MLA/MP) for the forthcoming elections, then there should be a ballot wherein the already elected members of that state/municipality would vote and choose their leader even if the name of the leader is obvious. This was followed recently in Karnataka 2011 after Yediyurappa's removal and can easily be followed in Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Bihar, Jharkhand, Goa and Maharashtra.
    2> If BJP decides to select a leader after declaring the candidates (MLA/MP/MLC) for the forthcoming elections, then there should be a ballot wherein the nominated members of that state/municipality who will fight the forthcoming elections, would vote and choose their leader. This was somewhat practiced during the 2nd assembly elections in Bihar 2005 and can easily be followed in Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Punjab, Jammu and Kashmir, Orissa, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Haryana or wherever it has some presence.
    3> If BJP decides to select after the elections are over, then there should be a ballot wherein the newly elected members of that state/municipality would vote and choose their leader. This model has been used to elect the Mayors of Delhi Municipalities in April 2012 and can be followed at any state/municipality especially, where it has limited presence or there is a chance of damage due to infighting.
    The State BJP Party and its strategists along with the Central High Command and Parliamentary Board would decide which model is to be followed and also shortlist the names of the candidates aspiring to be the face of the BJP for that election. I am convinced that these processes can be easily applied at district/taluka/municipality/state level with considerable success but I am not very sure whether this will work at the center. Nevertheless, I sincerely believe that in this manner; the problem of state vs central leaders, infighting among candidates aspiring to become leaders, confusion over the direction the party is going to take; will be avoided. On the other hand, BJP would enjoy increased acceptability due to its adherence to internal democracy within the party as opposed to Congress' monarchy, the charisma of the leader chosen, clarity of party principles among the workers and the goodwill of the electorate. In simple words, BJP should invest more in the process of electing leaders instead of the present murky way of selecting leaders. I would greatly appreciate if you can please go through the suggestions offered and give me your valuable feedback.
    Thanking you,
    Your sincere Karyakarta,
    Sikhar Banerjee

      I agree to your suggestion. Earlier this process was carried out for electing state presidents even and the same is there in the Constitution of BJP. But now days in the name of Sarva Sehmati the Central High Command/RSS is appointing mere puppets who do not have any support base in the state.Just for your information in the recently concluded UP elections almost all so called Party Functionaries including State President lost assembly elections with huge margins barring Kalraj Mishra nad Uma Bharti.Most terribly all the canditates lost in the Parliamentary Constituency of Our Ex National President.

Hence BJP Mumbai - communication cell is going to act. Those who are in Mumbai can attend the event on 2-June between 5 to 7 pm @ dadar head office - Vasant Smriti. This function is about planning how BJP Mumbai communication cell can proactively involved with social media activist and other bjp followers on twitter and facebook in Mumbai area & get their opinion and hear them out.

I would strongly recommend BJP to enroll honest & sincere volunteers who have the enthusiasm to work tireless for the party, with a vision to make it successful in 2014 elections.
    3. NEED TO TAKE A STRONG POLICY in Karnataka and set right the wrongs. Delaying the inevitable is only demoralizing the true BJP workers and supporters.
    4. Take strong positions on pro-Hindu points like Amarnath Yatra, Hindu's in Pak/Afghanistan and else where.
    5. Take a strong view against corruption, openly support Anna Hazare's Janlokpal bill and in their drive against corruptions.

  63. Nitin Gadkari should go to Maharashtra. There is a need of strong administration from BJP in Maharashtra. So, Nitin Gadkari is the best option. Nitin Gadkari ji should be projected as CM of Maharashtra and should work for BJP in Maharashtra to make BJP strong over there. And Narendra Modi Ji should be a national president of BJP and Keshubhai Patel should be a Chief Minister of Gujrath.
    Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi is also best option for national president of BJP. If BJP makes Naqvi as national president it will be goo answer to congress who always says that BJP is anti-muslim party and communal party. So, to remove this misunderstanding BJP can make Naqvi as national president.

    Who should be removed from BJP to save unity and integrity.

    1.Remove Anant Kumar from BJP who is responsible for Karnataka dispute.
    2.Remove Gopinath Munde from Maharashtra who is not trust worthy person. He can join hands with congress or NCP any time.
    3.Remove those persons who are bringing irritation to party.
    4.RSS should not interfere in BJP's each and every decision.

  65. I am pessimist about BJP being a good opposition. There is clear cut rift , ego and power issues within. People who were face of BJP- people due to whom BJP gets respect and recognition are no more seen- A.B Vajpayee , Sushma Swaraj and couple of others. What we see is corporatism when guys like Jately are in main show.

    I dont expect and hope that BJP can create a mass turnover against Congress-even they know this. All they are doing in again making a coalition....and destiny of India is sealed as this is such a scene where all animals are having an agreement to share the KILL.
    India badly needs a visionary- few months back, we used to feel perhaps that is RAMDEV BABA...but he is rich guy...and a good businessman....he dont have vision.
    Anna Haraey- is a platform for like of Ms. Bedi for political wt.- I dont see BJP in anyway coming close to that BJP which we used to see...in A.B Vajpayee days !!

    1. I am not agree with ur comment. U dont know anything about Ramdev Baba. U r just believing on news channels who are trying to spoil image of Baba Ramdev... News channels aur Congress govt Ramdev Ji maharaj ko badnam karne me lagi hai. Because Ramdev Ji is follower of Swadeshi and trying to save India by making people to buy swadeshi so, he opened divya pharmacy and patanjali for best option of swadeshi in cheap rates and best quality products. People should not buy videshi products and indian money should circulate in India only and thats why Ramdev Ji introduced Patanjali and divya pharmacy. The profit by selling those products will not go to him, it will go for charity which is serving for poor and malfunctioned people of India and social works for India like movements. not even single paisa is used by ramdev ji by selling those products. i can send u proofs. So, please dont talk about anyone if u have half knowledge abiut him and that too collected by bloody news channels which follow Videshi and servants of Videshi companies (MNCs), congress and America... So plz go in depth about Ramdev ji from his childhood life and find out the real truth. He was too poor farmer's son and how he survived and saw his family and how he bacame Baba Ramdev from a poor Ramkrishna Yadav from village of Hariyana. Otherwise send me ur email id on my email id, i will send u all proofs of Baba Ramdev Ji... Only Baba Ramdev can lead India and give golden days to India which was in 18th centuries... Dont believe on media plz...
