Polls 2013 – And The Losers Are…
Defeats are normal in politics and there is absolutely no dishonour in losing a democratic election. Some defeats are tolerable, some are severe. Either way, it is how a party and its leaders respond to that defeat that defines their character. Mother Gandhi and Son Gandhi came out in the evening on December 8 and accepted defeat in all the 4 states (Chattisgarh, Delhi, MP and Rajasthan) and congratulated their “opponents” for their victories. This is a reflection of poor character and pathetic lack of spirit that is traditional with the Congress. The mother-son duo was so pathetic that they didn’t want to name “BJP” as the winners and congratulate them. Rahul Gandhi went further to state “we have to learn from AAP” on how to reach out to people or campaign. Bravo! While AAP has made an excellent debut in Delhi there isn’t anything that would suggest they have swept to power in the state. Like the Gandhis, all the Congress spokies who were on TV channels were simply too arrogant to accept defeat honourably. These morons don’t seem to realise that this is the same arrogance that cost them the elections in the first place. This is the same arrogance that showed up when RahulG turned up a presser to declare “complete nonsense” and directly ridicule his own party’s PM.
Will they learn? I doubt it! These Congis aren’t very bright people at learning. That brings us to the media who too were extremely unwilling to accept the BJP sweep. Well alright, if these doormats at NDTV, CNN-IBN,TimesNow, IBN7 etc. don’t want to accept a 4-0 for BJP then they can at least concede it’s a 0-4 loss for the Congress. Doesn’t matter who they lost to, does it? All they were interested in was to toast the AAP as the biggest victor of the elections.
AAP made a great debut in Delhi but there are clear reasons for it. Any joker knew Sheila Dikshit was going to face the flak for Congress failures. There was anti-incumbency, there was that Nirbhaya rape and crimes in the city, there was corruption. So the SheilaD govt was a sitting duck. But as they say in cricket, even if it’s a loose ball someone has to hit it for a boundary. This is what AAP did well. The BJP didn’t finish the task in Delhi because for all the heavenly reasons, most of the top BJP leaders in Delhi have their eyes on the PM’s chair and not on Delhi. Be it Advani or Swaraj or Jaitley, the BJP heavyweights were hardly bothered about Delhi. Late in the game they came up with Dr. Harshvardhan as their CM candidate. The other thing is the modest, soft-spoken Dr.H is not exactly a charismatic, inspirational leader who can jump into a ring full of gladiators. If at all BJP salvaged Delhi to become the single largest party in these elections it surely was because of the hectic rallies byNarendra Modi in the last week before elections. If not, AAP would have been sitting pretty with a clear majority. Even an ordinary person like me could predict that in a tweet. But the MSM would like to tell you “No Modi effect”. That’s their LIE!
So whose votes did AAP take away? The answer is an unambiguous: BJP! They took the BJP votes because whatever anti-Congress votes were available should have gone to BJP. But this had to be shared with AAP. Yes, it’s possible that AAP also got some of the traditional Congress votes but the bigger loss is clearly BJP’s “anti-Congress” votes in this particular election. That the BJP still survived this dent and emerged the largest party is clearly due to Modi and nobody else. The MSM deceives in not acknowledging this. That naturally brings us to the question: Why is the MSM so upset with the victories of BJP? Let us acknowledge that the BJP may form a minority govt in Delhi which will be constantly under threat of being pulled down. Technically, the AAP can also form a govt with outside support from Congress who would like to keep the BJP out or there may be another election soon. Pulling down a minority govt is pretty much a given because the Congress has a historical tradition of pulling down govts. So why is the media making out as if this election was all about AAP?
If you observe the results, the BJP retained Chattisgarh with almost the same number of seats, even though it looked tight. BJP retained MP with a bigger count (per last reports). In Rajasthan it would not be wrong to say the BJP simply massacred the Congress. The thrashing was so severe in Rajasthan that even anti-incumbency cannot explain it. All the above are scenarios aren’t some mystery that the Congress media cronies couldn’t see earlier. They did see the writing on the wall quite clearly but in their anti-Hindu and so called pro-secular frame, the BJP simply had to be defeated. Therefore, for much of the media the AAP became a darling, especially Rajdeep Sardesai, Sagarika Ghose, Ashutosh, Bhupendra Chaube and some from NDTV. On Election Day, December 4, the preference for AAP in Delhi became even more pronounced and I couldn’t help saying that the MSM was actually campaigning and goading people to go for AAP in the face of inevitable Congress defeat. This question by me in a tweet got a predictable answer (Of course, Chaubeji has since deleted the tweet):
That brings us to the other important issue. All the TV channels were eager and the panellists more than willing to dismiss there was any Modi-effect or Modi-wave in these elections. They were behaving like they were sourpuss Congress leaders. Even Arvind Kejriwal was far more gracious in his party’s performance than these cronies were in the severe Congress losses. Panellist Sunil Alagh told Sagarika Ghose “more than Congress it is you who is more Modi-centric”. The petty and pathetic Aarti Jerath on TimesNow wanted to desperately differentiate between a Modi-effect and Modi-wave, inspired, of course, by an article in her own paper by Swaminathan Aiyar. Well, what would constitute a Modi-wave? That all the seats in all 4 states would go to BJP? Or that 70% of seats would go to BJP? Those days in Indian elections are over when one party (Congress) used to get those kinds of majorities.
Whatever one may call it, it remains an immutable fact that Modi now does bear immense impact on elections. Would BJP have won all 4 states without Modi’s rallies? I doubt it. In MP and Rajasthan they may have won but Modi’s impact made the margin bigger and victory a certainty. In Chattisgarh it helped pulled the BJP nuts out of the fire. In Delhi it saved BJP a severe embarrassment. That is what Modi has achieved for BJP. And Arnab Goswami was shamelessly feeding questions to Jyoti Scindia “Is this a 4-0 victory for BJP or a 4-0 loss for Congress”? Well moron, there is only one loser in all 4 states and that is Congress. Even AAP can be considered a winner for that matter, even if they didn’t win a clear majority. At least two media people had the grace to partly admit the fact about Modi’s impact and effect.
Arnab was so pathetic he was already screaming for Congress to bring out Priyanka Vadra from the closet (Oh she becomes “Gandhi” during campaigns though). I have already said in my previous post that this is the end of the road for Rahul Gandhi. He is a disaster and as usual a scumbag sycophant like Manishankar Aiyar said (on NDTV) RG is only responsible for Youth Congress and has nothing to do with these election outcomes. I would go a step further: RG is responsible for NOTHING! Bihar, UP, Gujarat, MP, Rajasthan, Chattisgarh and Delhi lost by Congress but the moron RahulG had nothing to do with any of that. Sure, when Congress won Karnataka it was all Rahul magic. This is why I say for India to progress Congress must die. A party with no inner democracy and a culture of sycophancy and slavery cannot wish you freedom or democracy ever. That much is predictable of the Congress and some in the media. But to me there were some people in the media who were a bigger disgrace than the Congress. And the losers are:
No matter what the results of an election and what their political preferences, media anchors and panellists are expected to carry out discussions with some semblance of reason and logic. All the nine persons above (and there were some more minor ones) were an absolute disgrace in their unwillingness to even grudgingly concede a victory to BJP and the impact of Modi. Their hatred of Modi has now become part of their DNA and disease and there is no cure. It is killing them inside and they know it. All these years these people sucked up to Rahul Gandhi as India’s Obama or the Great White Hope. He sunk them! The Congress doesn’t have an answer to Modi so far nor do these media slaves. Shankarsan Thakur said on TimeNow Congis are afraid to blame the Gandhis. Laughable! I keep saying the media boys and girls piss in their pants and skirts when they have to mention “Gandhi”, so are they now expecting Congis to blame or name Gandhis? The cowards and slaves in the Congress are no different from the cowards and slaves in the MSM. Should we talk of 2014? It’s too early, will drink that poison when the time comes.
Arnab Goswami, acting like the regular circus clown, had a stupid question at his 6pm show on December 8: “Is AAP now a threat to Modi”? Well moron, get used to it! All of you are a threat to Modi including Congress, SP, JDU, RJD, RLD, DMK, CPM, AAP, Third Front, Fourth Umpire, CBI, Salma and Sabrina, IM, LeT, JuD and the Indian MSM collectively. He’s still standing. You’re the ones who have fallen to the pits. You’re the real losers.
