My own prescription as what it should do to win For one thing , it should stop harping about the islamic peril....... the hindus have come over to the conclusion that hindu-muslim problems will in fact affect their day to day existence and their money earning by affecting the economy. Second ,they should try to retain the upper caste and class vote by not attacking women in pubs , or valentine's day couples or be seen to be opposing modernity and women's freedom .........as most of these people are upper caste and class ,and these actions only affect its core base . It will also have to expand in the south and shed its image of being a north indian party.......except karnataka ,it has no presence in the south ..........it should start with andhra pradesh ,telgus have always felt comfortable with north indians like kannadigas do ,and unlike tamils and up to some extent malyalis. For this it will have to stop chanting ram ram as ram is seen more as a north indian god ,and any party using his name as a north indian party by others. Now the chance is lost ,but when it was in power ,it should have had a more aggressive foreign policy befitting its image........it could have spent more on the military ,but instead it allowed the military to lose its edge over its adversaries upto some extent......there was no increase in budget for military. What more can people supporting BJP do other than continue supporting it??......nothing......people obviously do not have time from their jobs and other things to do more.......of course ,they can encourage those potential BJP supporters who do not vote on election day to come out to vote and not go for vacations .
