    Andhra state BJP has started short listing potential Muslim candidates in response to Narendra Modi's call to reach out to minorities hopes to field at least 20 minority candidates in forthcoming Assembly elections and a couple for Lok Sabha.

    They don't have much to lose by fielding Muslim candidates. By doing this they might actually net one or two reasonably strong Muslim leaders as they will have a higher ascent to the top in BJP if they win, whereas in non-BJP parties the competition might be neck to neck.

    If BJP need to come back to power, it had to take all in society along with it...

    Would be very disappointing if it is... Uniform, Inclusive politics it should be.

    for me it looks like a strategy to curtain congress in telangana.as obvious no way can bjp get more than 1/2 seats ,but even if it gets away with few muslim voters from congress it dramatically increases victory chances of tdp which would definitely ally with bjp at center.
    very good results can be expected if bjp allies with tdp at state level

    Example of appeasement would be shah bano case not this.

    In any case it is good thing to reach out to all sections of society.

    In Goa many of BJP MLAs are Christians BTW

    A large number of muslim candidates in recently held local elections in Gujrat have won. Pls be clear that NAMO is a very seculer person. Winnability is only criteria. Hindus do not mind voting for a muslim candidate but muslims have problems while voting for a Hindu candidate.

    I will correct you here. Muslims don't have a problem voting for Hindus anywhere. That's who they have been voting for since independence.

    Unless off course if you define a Hindu as one fr a particular party :D

    bjp is sickular suddenly.
    gujarat muslims are 9.5%
    andhra muslims are 9.5%
    he don't nominate a single muslim mla candidate from gujarat.
    now andhra bjp thinking to give so many muslim mla candidate.
    if bjp want to defeat asaduddin owisii than they should not contest from hyderabad and help tdp.

    if bjp contest they will cut more vote from tdp than aimim.

    I appreciate your points, buddy. Thank you for the data. I am, however, curious to know, why you do not use capital letters as all?

    If Muslims vote for any other party other than BJP, then they aren't nice.
    If Hindus vote for any other party other than BJP, then they aren't very nice either.
    In the last election :
    There were ~700 Million Citizens eligible to Vote, 417 million exercised their right and BJP got only 78 Million Votes ie 11% of eligible people voted for BJP or 19% of People who voted, voted for BJP.
    4 in 5 Indians are sickular, morons, anti-national, leftists, communists, and other epithets.

    I just don't freaking get it:

    WTF is the big deal if the candidate is a muslim?

    Seriously, all these politicians need a whack in the head.

    It is because of @$$ licking like this that goons like Owaisi rise to power and start making another mini Mughal empire of their own.


    ____________

    If the candidate is a nationalist and a dedicated person to the country like Dr. Kalam, then he is most welcome.

    I wish we could seriously have Dr. Kalam in the position of power with NAMO's cabinet.

    President was just a ceremonial role.

    Dr Kalam is sorely missed in national governance. :sad:
