"kanyakumari to simla" I think is a narrow minded intention. What else would that be???
It could be that some one is scared to go beyond Simla or consider Kashmir valley as part of some other country or sovereign country by itself.

I have never seen any CPM candidate having any criminal background or any charge of corruption against them neither there is any Bhand(film star) in the party most of them are very literate and capable persons, you people have certain perceptions about communist which is mostly based upon what you have heard and what other political parties say about them.
Most of you people will also repeat the same thing which peoples from kanyakumari to simla are going to do that is vote either BJP/CONG and think there is no other option but I am not going to do this again.


Their economic policies are stupid. They dont have a political agenda at all.

I would rather be sucked into the BJP's feel good campaign than believe in the degenerate & retrograde ideals of the CPM :roll:
The BJP has decided to focus on showcasing its achievements (hence the feel-good factor) during this election campaign. Now what do the other parties (including the Left, CPI, CPI(M), CPI(Z) ) have on their side? Frustration, that the BJP was able to provide growth and stability? Confusion, since they don't have any issues to campaign with?
God please rid this world of commies

I don't think foreign origin is a big issue.Sonia Gandhi is in India since 1968.People really don't care about person's origin(Lets not forget that Sushma Swaraj broke her own nose when people defeted her in one electionand voted for Sonia Gandhi).By the way ,Advani(ji) was born in Pakistan and he went to Missionary school too in Karachi!!! .I think 'Feel Good 'factor is enough to fool the people for winning the election

SJ: BJP(NDA) or Congress or third front
whom do you think is going to win this election

Looks like the NDA will make it, though it won't have the absolute majority/
SJ:Anyway whom do you vote and support and why ?
I prefer BJP over Congress (I) in the central.
But BJP is not contesting from my constituency. (it's ally AIADMK contensts there)
I don't want to vote for AIADMK.
The CPI(M) candidate in my constituency is a better person when compared to others.
But I don't like communist parties.

Hmm.....let me back CPI(M) candidate.

Communist are not orthodox as most of the people think look at China do you think that people are orthodox they are progressive but with certain values that most of the capitalist dont like.
Most of the people say they dont like communist because they have heard from others that communist are not good people and make their general perception that communist are pathetic, very similar to all those RSS minded people who all think Ghandi was a nasty person without reading or knowing anything about Gandhi, and even they dont know about their origin how RSS was formed and what was the main aim behind that. This is what i call generalization.
So dont generalize communist in India read abt CPI(M), their works, know their members then say anything about them.

"Things have changed in last 20 years" Bill Gates

I think you in era of S A Dange or M N Roy who were many times better than entire mass of Indian politicians of their time.To my knowledge,communist leaders in India were relatively honest than RSS/Congress.Nehru infact was very much leftist.Last 20 years saw lot of changes in Indian politics .Communist leaders once known as protest/strike kings are negligible now.These people have not given any reasons why people should vote for CPI when rest of the people in world are throwing communist regimes.Also what is condition of West Bengal where communists are ruling for so many years?West Bengal too invites foreign tenders for investment ,right?
Communists in India have always talk about revolution etc but they have never gone beyond 2/3 days strike.On personal level,these people might be honest but on party side they became bankcrupt when they formed alliance with Mulayam Singh/Laloo just for opposing BJP.

What was the economic policies of BJP in last election ?
AW I believe that BJP is reaping the crop of Congress.
Their is no difference between these two parties.
But today congress lacks young blood, which BHP has.
I think Priyanka should take the command of congress now. (oh! did I talk about family in poilitics ??)
As for as race for filmstars goes, both parties are doing equally ridiculous things.
CPI(M)... hmm.. I heard about this party. It exists some where. But can it do anything good for India. Dont know, but what I see in W.Bengal or in Kerla, I doubt they could do anything better than that.
I think its time to think the way Mani is thinking. Forget the party and think about your local candidate and deciding factor should be local candidate not the party.

Ok,Election Commision is thinking of adding an option "None of the above" to ballot paper to indicate voter thinks no candidate is qualified to represent his/her constituency.I think this is better than not going to election booth and watching some crap analysis by journalists on TV.

Thats common since longtime.Smriti Irani was offered 75 lakhs from BJP,the same newspaper reportedly said.Political party logic is right.There are movie fanatic people in all sections of society.If Urmila assures a semi nude dance at Congress campaign,there will be many people who will vote for Congress.Same is the case of BJP.Non residential Indians in America are pumping huge money in election market for these BJPs/Congress.

This bollywood(Hindi film industry) has never been honest in its history of more than 60 years.If you see the record,these 'stars','superstars' are one of the most dishonest citizens who invade tax with the help of politicians .Among them,Raj Kapoor,Dilip Kumar(whose friend was Karim Lala,underworld don),Amitabh Bacchan(friend of rich politicians) etc.
Anyway,how many of you will vote for 'None of the above' of election commision adds that option on ballot paper?

Mmmm...very tempting, but NO, I won't vote for this option (in this election).
Is there any chance that the EC will come up with more options like
-"I like the party, but not the candidate"
-"The candidate is cool, but the party sucks"
-"Let me vote for him/her now, but let me confirm after 6 months"
