    Do you know of any election in recent history where people have voted differently for the LS & state elections. Karnataka comes close but barely. Otherwise you would never get a regional party in parliament.




    Not better than UPA1 but still decent governance. The only problem is that all those decent performing ministers are either gone or getting on in age at this time. The fresh lot inspires no confidence whatsoever.

    uttar pradesh in 2009 elections........they chose 22 congress MPs even though congress was decimated in state elections...


    UPA I was just reaping the benefits of the economic liberalization taken under NDA regime for most part......four years of NDA regime...80% the flagship indian infra project (golden quadilateral) completed......9 years hence under UPA...still 1% remains......


    then im afarid ur doing it wrong....if you feel bjp blundered...they must be voted out...lest they think misgovernance can win them elections.....or retain power.....they should be taught only governance pays......same with congress.....or any other party......

    Nothing alleged by any standards, they are the most corrupt government in the history of Karnataka. Wait another month & you will know what the people of Karnataka think.

    Your point of voting for the BJP in the centre has to still deal with the complete disillusionment with the state BJP and the taint that the candidates carry. There are going to be no magical central candidates that are about to turn up.

    Unlike you, this is not my primary concern. I do have other things in my life that needs doing.


    Btw, most who support the BJP are still hard pressed to show how & where the BJP will win the seats that will get then close to 190-200 seats. I would be very interested in what anyone here thinks on this issue. A state by state break up showing the tally would be very welcome.

    but when there is a dichotomy about the mega corruption of central congress not affecting state congress behaviour why are you assuming state BJP incompetence would be reflected in central bjp rule ?

    its not state BJP that is going to rule in the center....is it ?

    because the choice for central rule is not going to affect not only karnataka but also all india......hence decisions must be based on that perspective....

    Not logical, that was a vote against Mayawati. By the time the state elections came around the Congress didn't have the same pull. The time difference between state elections in Karnataka & national elections is too small to make a difference.




    That is a never ending argument. It could be argued that the NDA were reaping the benefits of the actions of the Congress government of PV Narsimha Rao. The NDA did do very well during the Vajpayee years but credit also goes to UPA1.



    If you believe that I or anyone else must vote for a corrupt person simply because he belongs to the BJP, then I'm afraid it is your compass that is twisted. In any case, I will vote on parameters decided by me & you will do so on yours. It is a very odd logic that believes that Modi will run a corruption free government on the backs of the support of corrupt people.

    The candidates are still coming from the discredited state BJP & will probably have those who lose the state elections. If not, that would be a good start.

    Btw, the central BJP (with the exception of Advani) is complicit in the corruption of the state unit. Who do you think gave the Bellary brothers a free hand to create what the Lokayaukta said was the " republic of Bellary" ? The central leaders showed cowardice & an inability to take tough decisions when they were faced with a rogue state unit that was destroying their image. We are supposed to believe these very same chaps will suddenly grow a pair when the central government is at stake? Get real.

    the central leadership is getting changed now....the delhi-4 is fighting to retain its old primacy with the advent of modi and rajnath singh.....

    apart from that...i will repeat......your logic essentially means you are settling for the lesser of the two evils based on perfomance (congress) in karnataka.....so if an uniform metric is to be followed then the lesser of the two evils at the moment in New Delhi is NDA....so naturally the choice must be them for lok sabha....thats the whole point.....
