Some people are so blind that they will never understand the state that our country has been reduced to in the years of congress rule post independence.
And somehow, BJP managed to ace them in damage in just 4 years. I am expecting a massive economic recession in the country very soon.

atleast he is true to his religion and his language. Unlike some chameleons who change their religion depending on the election.
Do you mean they are not the kind of chameleons who professed about removing the Haj subsidies (which was originally a supreme court order) because they wanted to "enpower minorities without appeasement" and then went ahead and offered free Jeruslem pilgrimages if they are voted to power in Nagaland?

If he is comfortable in speaking a particular language I dont think it is fair to mock that.
How very convinient. Amit Shah says "Baad me tuje nipat..." and changes it to "Baad me milta hu" and you people claim that he used Gujarati at the very moment that its convinient to you to treat it as non-Hindi..[/QUOTE]

Phew all BJP managed to do is nominate Yeddy as the CM candidate - someone who's been implicated in past corruption cases and is hand in glove with the mining lobby.

Why could they not choose someone who has a clean repertoire if BJP really cares about progress.

This time round its choosing between the devil and the deep sea in karnataka.

For somone who has time to read and know the reality. Well researched article.
It's not "Well researched", but "well deceived"
Currently, even with tariffs and fumigation fees in place, AGT is still exporting pulses to India. AGT is currently shipping whole grain peas, red lentils and green lentils. The company has its own facility in India.
“The duties in India are known, the fumigation is now a level playing (field) for everybody; the five-times penalty equates to about $12 per tonne,” he said. “This is not a disaster in our supply chain.”
January and February usually aren’t a robust import time of year for India, according to Al-Katib. The Indian harvest is in March, so the busy import season usually starts after.Once India knows how the big the pulse harvest is, Al-Katib believes the country will import more pulses
Source : India will continue to import Canadian pulses, AGT says

Pseudo ecomists like you who cares about what you think about indian economy?
I understand enough to realize that this countries economy is a ticking time bomb right now. It may have been made into a time bomb by congress over its 70 years of rule, but in just 4 years, BJP started the timer and is busy speeding up that countdown.

And of course. I hate not only these corrupt criminal politicians of BJP, Congress and their ilk in general, but my hate fully extends to those who have taken up the job of kissing their behinds.

As its said,

People get the government they deserve and they deserve what they get.

Nope, not gonna happen. They will just change the very definition of recession just like they did with the gdp calculation to cover up their demon... excercise. Anyone with half a brain just needed to step out to see the reality on the street, all the businesses shutting down and all the people suffering. Lol, and now gdp growth is some huge figure no less. The deception in action...

Yet these brainless BJP party fans will keep denying the truth and keep bashing congress and raga and whoever they disagree with. And if and when they do open their eyes it will be way too late to correct.

Although it’s known to you as Sanghi mouthpiece and all whatnot,
Their research in given topic is much more detailed and verifiable via third party

Not like your fav.ndtv and wire and scroll who is known for fake news,
Had read one article from swarajya on Afghanistan by Vikram sood, ex RAW guy

Excellent write up. Nice independent critique on where the americans went wrong there.

When was the last time we had good leaders in KA.

last one i can think of is SM Krishna. His mistake was going to the polls on the back of a bad monsoon. Same thing happened to Naidu

Last monsoon wasn't bad in fact the opposite.

Karnataka always been getting rough treatment from the center, last 15 yrs the state ruling party is opposite of the party in the center. SM Krishna and Naidu were blamed for favouring the Metros, Corporates / Software people and neglecting the Farmers and villages. Of course the bad Monsoon added to the wrath.

Karnataka Elections matter a lot for Congress, in fact its a last chance of survival for Rahul G leadership. Its a much bigger challenge than Gujarat for BJP. Its not a Hindi speaking state, Most of the indices are much better than Gujarat to lure voters on Gujarat model. The routine BJP electoral tricks won't work here. BJP has few advantages too. They've been elected to majority once earlier, the only southern state to do that. Though Congress won the State Elections in 2013, Karnataka voted for BJP in 2014 LS Elections. The Modi factor will be important for that matter.

Sidhramaiah Govt is perceived to be corrupt and antihindu due to serial killing of RSS workers. Be it falsely reporting of incomplete projects or brazen pro minority behavior like "Tipu Jayanti" Sidhramaiah Govt has been caught on wrong foot many times. The push for Kannada Linguistic identity during Elections from state Govt, Caste politics shows the desperation of Congress Govt. Law and order isn't better either, Recently a Muslim MLAs son was arrested much hesitantly by Govt, for nearly killing a professional during a pub brawl. They went to the extent of threatening the person in hospital in the heart of metro like Bengaluru.

With NE results clearly having the positive effect on BJP (which is very important as the religious equation in NE don't favour a ProHindu party) Its a bigger battle for BJP in Karnataka, hopefully it doesn't turn out to be a waterloo for BJP. Because Karnataka gave a first win even for Indiraji when she was on a losing streak post Emergency.

People in Hubli wanted a dam on the mahadayi river that flows into Goa. Goa objected and the city shut down a month back in protest. Yeddy was backing this agitation and lost.

Siddu with kauveri wins, Yeddy with Mahadayi lost, amit shah says vote for the BJP and they will get it through. But who beleives him

Going to the polls on the back of a bad monsoon is a default lose for the incumbent. Better to have elections before the monsoons set in, last year had good monsoons. Remains to be seen how much of a factor anti-incumbency will be. That's the killer. The challenger doesn't have to be better if people already lost faith in the party in power. Have they ?

Congress has a chance i think at being re-elected. Usually the state has had different parties in power compared to the centre. Best thing for Congress to do is keep quiet and not make too much noise in the run up to the election.

Where are the credible BJP leaders of Karnataka ?
