What Does Rahul Gandhi Have Up His Sleeve?

  • Deeply disagree with your (or rather, Reuters’) comments on the Karnataka election. It has absolutely nothing to do with Mr. Modi or Mr. Gandhi. It is entirely about the corruption of Karnataka’s government under the BJP for the last 5 years. The Congress isn’t winning through any effort of its own, rather it is riding on a wave of anti-government feeling in Karnataka. This is a generally accepted statement, and to speculate on Mr. Modi and Mr. Gandhi’s influencing this election is highly irresponsible journalism. Because of the BJP’s problem being entirey local, many commentators also think that the BJP could do better in next years parliamentary election than it is expected to do in the state level election this year. That makes it even less important for the national level so it has less relevancy to RG and Modi.
