Uttar Pradesh has a large muslim population. Back in the 90’s, Muslims had a choice b/w the congress and the BJP, now there are other players, all vying for the all-important Muslim vote. The benefit that the congress had, before the BSP and SP, is never going to come back. The Muslims earlier, voted for the congress as a single voting block. Now, they have several choices. Now, the only way to attract muslim votes is to give them sops.

The recent decision to allow 4% reservation in the 27% quota for backward classes for Muslims is an example. They are trading votes for sops. Reservations will spoil Muslims and make them lazy. If you don’t have to work hard for something, you will not realize its value. This system of sops-for-votes will prove costly for the congress, BSP and SP. With a rapidly growing muslim population, even more reservation will be required next year for their votes. The BJP should use this opportunity and directly make a pitch to the Muslims, telling them why their reservation is bad for them, and how the congress is trying to buy their votes.

What the reddy brothers are doing is wrong, no doubt about that. Both BJP and Congress are corrupt. However,the media critisizes the BJP more than the congress. Indian media is biased.

HD Kumaraswamy also owns lots and lots of land here in Bangalore. Why not mention that? His dad, Devegowda, was forced to step down from the post of PM because he is corrupt. The JD(S) and congress are no less corrupt than any other party. I demand fair reporting.

I read disturbing news reports of the BJP wanting to raise our national flag in jammu/kashmir, but, they are facing opposition from congress. Why is this? Isn’t that a part of India? Isn’t it traitorous not to?

The media are against the BJP. They are bias. Why aren’t the people protesting? Have you forgotten about that part of India. Whats wrong with the media? Why are they not shouting against this?
