Pratap Bhanu Mehta in the Indian Express:
If you were looking for unexpected insight into the troubles of the BJP, you need look no further than L.K. Advani’s response to the spirited, and on-the-mark, attack on him by Manmohan Singh. His response was a mendacious distinction to the effect that while his attacks on Singh were not personal, Singh’s attacks on him were. But more significant was his claim that he was “hurt”. In using this one little word, Advani unconsciously revealed more about himself and his party: both thrive on a constant play on the theme of victimhood.
'Hurt', 'victimhood', 'politics of resentment', 'no high ideals, only grudges to nurse', 'politics of hate', 'discourse of "justified" revenge'... short, succint phrases that sum up the party with a difference:
..all that remains of the BJP is a long sulk, one that will haunt it even when it is in power. A party whose leader is so quickly “hurt” is a party with no foundations.
