Why so bearish? Has BJP ever contested Bihar on its own? UP is a much more familiar turf for BJP. On balance, BJP has done extremely well in the state elections following LS 2014. It has won against odds in Maharashtra, Jharkhand, Haryana and J&K; but in the process conceded Bihar & Delhi. I’m sure that the BJP leadership would be quite happy with their success. We have overly high expectations from the party. Who knows, maybe BJP could emerge the principal opposition in WB, Kerala and perhaps even Assam. Stay optimistic dude.
Also, why the intolerance towards rustic folks who choose to comment on matters such as beef/Pakistan etc? Let’s not behave like liberals here. I believe that Yogi, Sakshi, Sadhvi etc, should have an equal voice as Girish Karnad, Hasan Suroor, Guha , SRK etc.
Of course, it would help if BJP sympathizers avoid demonizing the Christians/Muslims, who will anyway ALWAYS vote for the Congress/allies.
PS: I’m a big fan of Yogi’s straight-talk. I also enjoy comments by Sakshi, Sadhvi etc. They’re an essential counter-balance to the rabid Hindu hate propounded by MSM
