BJP to ask for removal of Sonia Gandhi
I am not an admirer of Sonia Gandhi or for that matter Gandhi – Nehru dynasty.
If I had my way I will deport the sorry bunch to Burkina Faso or Ulan Bater.
But that is not the issue. The problem here is that BJP is direction less. It happened as soon as it assumed power at the centre, compulsions of coalition politics meant that it had to put its core agenda on the back burner. It never had any economic agenda to speak of (or for that matter any political party).
However as long as it was in power there was any need for it. But since it lost elections it is running like a headless chicken. From one issue to another issue it is stumbling along the way squandering countless opportunities presented to it on so many occasions. Its reactions in their partisan tenor have been of almost reflexive nature. Unless it formulates a coherent strategy, it will continue to blunder along. That doesn’t mean that it can not come to power, if Indian politics teaches anything, it is that success is remarkably content free and intelligence neutral. However as an ardent BJP supporter I think I deserve more than just another version of Congress.
There is an issue of leadership. I have two names one is Sushma Swaraj. I know libertarians and moral bandits will snicker on the choice, but frankly speaking I could care less about brain dead issues such as sexual liberty and blah blah blah.
Another one is Arun Shourie, I know he is hardly a popular leader, but he posses the intellectual power to forge a coalition.
