One, after Lok Sabha election, Amit Shah said that BJP will accept any party's support if it wants to extend its support. 

Two, If NCP attacked BJP as the party of 'Half Pants', communal etc., BJP's attack on NCP was not much milder.  If NCP is willing to forgive and forget, BJP also should do the same.

Three, It is one thing to attack opposition leaders as corrupt, it is much more difficult to convict them with solid proof.  We saw that with Kejriwal and Sheila Dikshit.

Four, you can negotiate with only reasonable people. Even with moderate demand of 130-135 seats SS did not budge.  Its (and especially Uddhav's) attitude is like, 'I will die but I will make you a widow'.  This can be seen even right now from what is coming out from SS/Uddhav/Samna.  Uddhav's language is like a school bully, very immature.. "Modi To Kya, Us Ka Baap Bhi Nahi..."  There is no mature politician left in SS to placate Uddhav.

Author’s and other’s preferences for a particular variety of mango or for that matter a sweet dish are not unusual. What is surprising is that even in Canada there are people, both Indian and Pakistani, with many prejudices. After all, when one leaves his or her motherland and migrates to some other country, one should be ready to leave behind all prejudices and begin a new life.

How the medical research can take place in India while our politicians go for treatment abroad, We are not utilizing our resources fully and even we are not even admitting the Students purely on Merit but based on Cast and Religion etc , shockingly even in higher specialty fields. They have left our Poor Citizens to be treated by Sub standard Medicos while politicians etc can afford even to go Abroad or by the BEST doctors available in India like AIIMS , While they are getting treatment why they cannot reserve some doctors based on Cast to treat them. In case they cannot like to be treated by them then atleast , they should RETHINK and sure that every Professional is competent and we should create our professionals based on Merit so that even our POOR CITIZENS can depend upon the professionals recognized by the Government .

Modi,Fadnavis ,Somaiyya and every BJP man from Maha called for the sacking and arrest of Ajit Pawar.

Is the call for Brasthachar Mukht Bharat a mere slogan to hoodwink the gullible Indians saturated with Congress loot.

RTI reports show that  Sancheti and co stand accused of having been beneficiaries in the vulgar Plunder of treasury.

As much as Congress which ignored and did nothing in the 71k crore loot,the BJP is facing a test of its commitment and promise to the voter to have the accused jailed.

Taking or refusing support of NCP is no issue ,getting the looters to book is a promise the BJP made in every forum for last 2 years.

Such quotations and such statistics can be used by hate-filled morons like you for your own purposes. "Most Pakistanis"! How much I.Q. is needed to debunk such a quote? Pakistan has a lot of terrorists but even if their number is one lakh, what percentage is that of a population of 184 million. And to try to connect terrorism with U.K.'s crime statistics is a trick that only the two of you would try to play! Only 50 years ago the preponderence of blacks in U.S. prison populations was repeatedly touted by white racists as proof of the inferiority or sociopathy of blacks, until they were silenced by excellent sociological research and, now, by the fact that Blacks are professors in Ivy League universities, lawyers, judges, businessman governors and even a President. The Brits and the Americans do not get hysterical about these statistics. Only communalist guttersnipes keep writing post after post as if they are making some great point! You guys even tried to say that Muslims do not do any good deeds. When I posted some dramatic examples showing the opposite, both of you disappeared like gutter rats.

BJP should put SS in its place by going ahead with the NCP offer for now. A humbled and chastised SS will soon crawl back to BJP for whatever crumbs Amit Shah will throw at it. - Non Fanatic (#1)

That is a short sighted view. No party offering outside support can be relied upon. Though the NCP says its offer of support is UNCONDITIONAL, There is no such thing as a free lunch. Sooner or later the BJP will be asked to pay the price and if it balks, the NCP will withdraw support and the government will fall.

The SS is the natural ally of the BJP and the two in combination would form a stable government since their interests coincide. The BJP must treat the SS fairly (as it has promised, but the alliance needs to reflect the ground realities. The seat share is of the order of 2:1 and the vote share 3:2. For the SS to claim parity on the basis of a 1995 agreement is absurd. Ministries should be allotted 2:1 on the basis of legislature strength. For the next election, each party should fight the seats it has won. For the balance, whichever party fared better should be allowed to contest. That should be a fair solution, but it is likely that the SS will cut its nose to spite its face.

If the SS chooses to sulk and let the BJP form a minority government, they will be the losers. It would be interesting to see the SS and the Congress vote together on any issue.

What Mumbai ? Real terror story is in Bengal.  In Burdwan Today a local Islamist leader, in a big rally in Burdwan town, presumably called for 'peace' , infront of largely a allah0-akbar crowd, threatened the local police and warned TMC government. As per reports in Calcutta daily anandabazar, Mr Siddikulllah , urged all Madrassas to resist if police come to search. He said Madrassas should 'search the police' when they come !  He urged the muslims to donate money to fund the lawers and defense of the two muslim women and other bomb-makers in custody.  He threatened that if local police co-operated with central agencies then they would throw the TMC government out.

It Is said ants develop wings when there end times near. Indian state is under threat in Bengal and the brazen show of force at a rally in Burdwan today should be an eye-opener.

For Anwaar glaring statistics are white lies. Therefore UK ought to be seen as a liar. Their home office statistics are a compilation by liars to malign a peaceful community. After all UK is racist you know?

The visuals and news of a Muslim black who beheaded a soldier in broad daylight with a cleaver in London is a lie . Bombing of a bus in London is also a lie. BBC wanted high TRP ratings and it was a lie spread by it, you know? Perhaps these are all actually staged dramas arranged by UK govt to earn sympathy for itself.

I think they might not need to do anything. Just go to the governor, and stake their claim. Since NCP has already offered outside support, and any other combination is not possible (except mathematically), the governor can ask them to form govt, and prove majority in the house.

Congress shall certainly oppose, and NCP shall likely support. Let SS decide what it wants to do.

The most honorable option would of course be to sit in the opposition, like they did in Delhi. However, there AAP was in a position to form a govt (which destroed them completely), while that's not the case here. Re-elections might be the only option then.
