BJP-wallahs are true-blue Indians (It Doesn’t Seem Like Team Spirit in a Trippy Lane, Apr 7). They too will behave like the proverbial desi crab and pull down their fellow travellers. Jaswant Singh is the worst of the lot. He’s never had a following of any kind, was a spectacularly undistinguished foreign minister (cue his and Vajpayee’s craven surrender to terrorist demands in the IA hijacking) and finance minister.

Jaswant Singh was no victim of any ideological purge. Had that been the case, he would have been discarded a long time ago. The patrician from Barmer was always an oddity, it’s remarkable that he survived on the front benches of a major political party for as long as he did. For there was always a section within the BJP that was impatient with his perceived affectations.

BJP is like Pakistan; internal enemies are enough.
India cannot afford another 10 years of corrupt, divisive misgovernance by the dynasty party. We need a strong leader like NaMo that can silence China-Pak. He is the lesser of all evils and our only hope. We need at least 10 years of NaMo led governance. Assuming he keeps his promises of lowering corruption, bringing about transparency and accountability. The paid media houses like N_D_T_V, T0I, H_T and Getout-look are constantly printing divisive news about NaMo but readers are smart now. Paid news won't work this time.
BJP-wallahs are desis too. It is to be expected that they too will behave like the proverbial desi crab and pull down their fellows. God forbid that their fellow party-wallah may actually win.
Jaswant Singh is, of course, the worst of the lot. He has never had a popular following of any kind, and was lifted to victory by the hard work of others. He was also a spectacularly undistinguished foreign minister (cue his and Vajpayee's craven surrender to terrorists' random demands in the Indian Airlines hijacking case) and finance minister.
Whether or not the BJP wins, it would be great to see toads like Jaswant Singh get hammered into oblivion and tossed out of politics forever. At least the many other real toads and assorted slimy creatures in Indian politics do not garb themselves in a hypocritical mask of urbane respectability.
In Congress every thing is fine? No problem in party?
Or every one is afraid of first familiy?
We request one article praising the unity of Congress!!... Please....
I have never known so much love for BJP among Sickulars. If nothing else is done by Narendra Modi, his achievement for generating so much love for BJP should be lauded.
Modi has brought strife to the BJP. He should be stopped before he brings strife to the country.
Outlook should have used this article to run another cover story claiming that Modi can never be PM because the BJP is not working as a team.
And let us see. There are two main parties for 2014-BJP and Congress. BJP team has no team spirit.
OK. WHat about the Congress? There is NO team there. All the front line players have taken sabbatical. Why is Outlook silent on that?
Game is not over yet. second rung leaders hope to become compromise candidate. rajnath and jaitley will trip modi in his own camp. sushma hopes from advani camp.
they have kept their silence because of rss. once the election is over the knives will come out in open.
Modi shows the fascist tendencies while
favouring and denying tickets to aspirants. This
way he assures none should question him even after
the election. This exposes his fearsome mind.
Title should have been: The Story of modi and sundry soiled tissues!
