    When do you think general elections will happen?

    • UPAII on the verge of loosing majority
    • CBI floundered in CoalScam
    • Idiotic JPC report on 2G
    • No trust motion any time now

    No one is ready for early elections as everyone is testing waters and elections in several states will give indications as to which way wind is blowing so that all parties can take a stock of it and then make a decision to go for elections or not.

    they will have to do some face-saving first from this ladakh incursion business and regain some respect before holding elections - so try to time-factor that in

    Its virtually guaranteed that Rahul Baba will be PM. BJP has a special ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. :mad:

    Why blame BJP alone. Majority of Indian voters who vote corrupt Congress and its allies again and again are also to blame isn't it ? Also our first past the post electoral system. Despite giving good governance in all the states they rule (yes, including Karnataka) they are not able to make a presence in other states. We deserve to be misruled by Communists, Congress, SP, BSP, NCP, etc

    Congress is hoping to grab the Muslim vote (17%) and some of the Hindu vote (around 13%) - enough to make a winning percentage of around 30% in 2014. Hence agree that Rahul baba will be most likely Prime Minister in 2014. Unfortunate but most likely scenario.

    The first feel good salvo has been fired with Petrol prices coming down by Rs. 3, LPG by Rs. 54 ( non subsidised) and no hike in Diesel prices.

    Already I can hear people thanking the Government for the price reductions.

    The grapevine says that the initial price drop for Petrol was between Rs. 1.50 and Rs. 2.00 but due to the Coalgate scandal it was decided to go in for a Rs. 3 price drop

    That is a fine sentiment.

    Hamara congress.com welcomes this! ;)

    Jha of Hamaracongress.com does a great job to show how the Congress is doing such a marvellous job with the scams and influencing of the CBI and all that.

    And so does that Sharma of HT who has a sinecure given to him in come Committee for his loyalty!

    Rahul Gandhi is the second coming of Christ as far as the Congress is concerned!

    I endorse that, even though I await Vatican's confirmation!

    My family were staunch Congress people.

    To them, Congress could do no wrong.

    Much that I respect their sentiments and I would like to live up to their beliefs, as a good son, yet I find myself helpless to balance my parents' sentiments, which I hold dear immensely, to the fraudulent avatar that calls itself as Congress, selling our country wholesale domestically and more so, internationally.

    I hope my dear departed parents will forgive me for this 'blasphemy'.

    I am ashamed I could no want to live in an India that is proud of itself!

    They were proud of India and so am I!
