    Hyderabad: With the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) going national after its stunning show in Delhi, it is being seen as a game-changer ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

    The Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh top brass met in Hyderabad and is believed to have criticised the Bharatiya Janata Party for the way it has handled the AAP challenge. Senior BJP leaders Rajnath Singh, Nitin Gadkari and Ram Lal were also invited to the two-day meet.

    RSS leaders reportedly asked the BJP to stop criticising AAP and learn from its strategy. RSS leaders also pulled up the BJP on poll preparations, and sources said they have advised the BJP leadership to make its politics inclusive and participatory.

    For the record, both RSS and the BJP, however, denied that any such discussion took place in which the AAP phenomena figured.
    BJP President Rajnath Singh held confabulations with top brass of the RSS and key Sangh Parivar outfits as part of the exercise to fine-tune the party's strategy for the general elections.

    RSS leaders are believed to have done some talk on the emergence of AAP during the interactions at the biennial meet of the Sangh fountainhead at Shamirpet on the outskirts of Hyderabad, an event kept out of bounds for the media.

    Sources said the Sangh was reportedly concerned about the surge in popular support for AAP across the country, particularly in the urban centres, after the recent Assembly elections.

    RSS spokesperson Ram Madhav, however, denied that the outfit's chief Mohan Bhagwat made any such statements. He tweeted, "News about RSS meet in Hyderabad attributing statements to Chief Shri Bhagwat are as usual fictitious and false. Chief didn't speak today at all."

    BJP spokesperson Sushanshu Trivedi said, "This news is baseless. RSS never interferes in political matters."

    While BJP won in three states, it could not get a clear majority in Delhi due to the splendid performance of AAP, which is now planning to go nation-wide after initiating a slew of measures aimed at battling corruption and improving civic amenities in the national capital.
    AAP's growing profile has upset the electoral calculations of the BJP as it was seeing itself as a natural beneficiary of the anti-incumbency mood against the Congress prevailing in the country.

    Bhagwat and key office-bearers of the Sangh, in addition to organising secretaries of parivar outfits attended the meet which reviewed organisational matters and other issues.

    According to sources, besides RSS, key leaders of ABVP, VHP, Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh presented their latest report cards detailing the respective activities undertaken by them.

    "These activities (meeting) are mainly meant for exchange of views", a RSS functionary said.

    Re:

    Even if true then what should BJP learn from AAP ? Populism ? No security ? Taking Congress's support ? Making budget-breaking lofty promises ? Encashing Anna's popularity ? What ? Lol.

    Re:

    That dumping VIP status is the most idiotic one. I mean government gives red beacon to such politicians because their time is precious for country, if AAP leaders as claimed are so much worried and dedicated to public service, they must use the red beacon.

    Populism is part of RSS' old think tanks, imo, if CPI wants to survive, they should merge with RSS oldies. :lol:

    There are certain privileges of office and when it is blatantly flaunted, misused and pushed into the face of the common man to show that they are different, then it is what is reprehensible, and what can be called the VIP culture that the politicians and those with power need to shun.

    That a Prime or Chief Minister or Ministers would require to move by a car, have minimal and non invasive security, a house that would have an office complex along with it, is not a luxury, but a necessity. To feel that this is VIP culture or attempt to do down this to identify as vibing with the aspirations of the am admi is misplaced, if not downright stupid and playing to the gallery.

    If indeed there is a necessity to identify with the people, their aspirations and their standards, then the ideal identification and 'sacrifice' would be to live in a shack in a JJ Colony. But how many of the Ministers would opt for that?

    This tendency to celebrate that 'being poor' and hang it out to dry as a badge of honour is a false idol Indian politics has imaged along the years as the 'glorified existence of India'. However, poverty is only buzz word to them, since privately they emulate the lives of the Moghuls!

    Sarojini Naidu's famous remark should never be lost sight of where she said how much it cost to keep Mahatma Gandhi in poverty. !

    All this 'poverty' identification with the common man is merely cosmetic.

    It is time for all, be they politicians or the common man, to quit the charade in their own spheres of existence, and instead live, work and exist as normal human being, making best with what they have and what facilities given by their position in life.

    There is much to learn from the AAP, RSS having said it or not notwithstanding.

    The manner in which they have gone for the national membership drive is outstanding and so is the way they have projected their idea been able to capture the imagination of the people.

    The Jack the Giant Killer image has really got the people delighted since it gave vent to the accumulated anger towards the Congress Party's mis governance and blatant, daylight robbery of the Nation .

    Modi's popularity too was the fallout of the total disgust of the Nation towards the Congress, but Kejriwal has caught the imagination more than Modi (may not translate in votes, who knows?) is because Kejriwal does not carry any baggage, true or alleged, unlike Modi.

    And the media is affecting the minds of the people.

    I spoke to someone in the Punjab last night and I was surprised he was full of AAP!

    And this person is a strong SAD follower!

    Sir, and the most interesting thing is that till today they have neither done anything which can change the system, nor they have reflected the capacity to do that. All they have done, is to blame Congress (and BJP too) for everything, they are chanting the "Corruption-Raga" from the start and nothing else.

    If we see it closely AAP is a regional party (of Delhi) and it has not received even the simple majority. But they are getting much support in other big cities like Mumbai and Bangalore, which confirms my earlier assessment that it is not AAP effect but ANNA effect. Wherever people gathered to support Anna, AAP is getting support.

    So AAP is a ANNA effect party without Anna.

    Modi is an able administrator, Kejriwal has just started his tenure.

    Second thing my preference is more of capitalist economy and shape India future and not taking it back to socialist crap.

    In the TimesNow Debate last night, Goswami was going hammer and tongs trying to prove that Anna would be announcing his support for Modi in Mar! And that the BJP is wooing all Team Anna chaps and that is why Bedi joined the Modi camp!

    There was also that young looking white hair Ashootsh of one of the channels, who has joined the AAP.

    I don't hold Kejriwal to be a messiah, he is more of a Pretender - a Congress type of subsidy raj chap with pretensions to higher political thought!

    Babus cannot be good politicians.

    MMS is the ideal example - the heart is in the right place, but the political compulsions overwhelms them and they come to nought!

    Therefore, one really doesn't understand what is going on.

    True, there is the Anna Effect that is engine-ing AAP, but then if Anna supports Modi, as Goswami is crystal gazing, then how does it pan out?

    That is why I have firmly held that we Indians deserve all that is happening to us. We deserve UPA-III & 3rd front instability, rather than decisive & progressive governance. UP deserves Mulla-yam, W. Bengal Mamta & Delhi: Kejriwal, who is hellbent on bankrupting the exchequer as well as pawning the nations's sovereignty/honour.

    Opportunist Scums are there in every society but it is only in 3rd world immature polities like India that they can consistently hoodwink people just by shamelessly practicing politics of appeasement-freebies-identity-reservation & conveniently changing their garb, name & naara.

    As for our middle-class & youth, they are decidedly a woolly-eyed & callow lot who cannot even identify their long-term interests; they roll along towards anything who promises them things done quick (quick-fix/ad-hocism) & easier (less hard work/short-cut i.e. unsustainable & unsuccessful). Expecting such electorate to be even capable of thinking about national-level issues by rising above petty-concerns, populist measures & symbolism, would be an insult to their limited intellect.

    Forget catching up with China. Within less than a decade the difference between them & us would be as much as between Indian & Paki. Thanks to our people who prefer politics that incentives poverty rather than eliminating it through enterprise, governance, sustainable delivery & capacity-building.

    Indians will get what they deserve. 3rd Front govt. shored up by UPA-III (or, vice-versa).

    These are the very same people who have consistently elected hard-core criminals/gangsters/mafia to electorate, for decades. If these people prefer AAP over a tested, proven & nationalist alternative, then why get surprised ? The trend would continue. Infact, these people are capable of much worse as is amply reflected in the contemporary Indian quality of governance & growth statistics.

    @TrueSpirit1.

    You are actually spot on.

    It is the anger that wells in the bosom of the Nation caused by the total misrule by the politicians over the years, leaving Indians desolate and as if motherless.



    An appropriate song that is on the lips and hearts of India!

    It is unfortunate that BJP expects votes because of TINA factor. People are gasping for change, and AAP is a breath of fresh air.

    So far, on twitter or DFI, I have not seen many articulate BJP supporters who understand the visceral impact of everyday callousness of their party. Their arguments are two fold, AAP is leftist/congress/ISI/Jihadi/CIA and second vote for Modi because he is a messiah who can save the nation.

    The issue is not what the future holds alone.

    What one is seeing is the total confusion in the response to how to get rid of the misgovernance and corruption of the last regime.

    The opinion how to do so is very diverse and each trying to find some convergence.

    A breath of fresh air is only there where there is a vast expanse and nothing to pollute.

    That beauty of that vast expanse and the breath of fresh air is what is hallucinating the people.

    I believe you posted another thread where the author said MMS has served for 10 years, history is not going to be kind to him.

    Kejirwal has survived a trust vote less than 10 days ago, atleast give the man some time to make history.
