    After the next round of elections at the end of this year BJP will rule more then 70% of India. They will have a whole one year till 2019 to make any significant move but alas that year will be an election year and any major decision taken will be based on it's consequences on the 2019 elections. So we are looking at post 2019 time period for things to really change in India also around that time effects of GST, DFC, MII, Skill India will start kicking in.
    Really looking forward to a 9-10% growth rate from that period onwards.

    stop being silly. The day Vasco Da Gama cannoned the cost of Kerala and forced the Zamorin to submit their days were number. People respect authority only as long as you can prove your power. Once you lose, you're finished.

    Yeah dude, New generation wants cow urine research and protection. If UP had gone to Ranath, I believe congress might have been severely dented for at least a decade. Now they've given it to a buffoon who hasn't realized that his identity is eroding. And MP is following in its footsteps. Congress is safe for a comeback.

    So, you should have no problem if it works both ways. Right wing is finishing some people since they lost power and authority after the fall of Mysore.

    Hero became zero in front of police, forget army lol

    Plutonium was a better fart from BJP supporters. Lack of education shining through.

    Polonium is a chemical element with symbol Po and atomic number 84. A rare and highly radioactive metal with no stable isotopes, polonium is chemically similar to selenium and tellurium, though its metallic character resembles that of its horizontal neighbors in the periodic table: thallium, lead, and bismuth. Due to the short half-life of all its isotopes, its natural occurrence is limited to tiny traces of the fleeting polonium-210 (with a half-life of 138 days) in uranium ores,

    Congress is too numb and sore after the buggering they got in recent elections.That is the reality on ground level,which your Prince RG would not believe in, Just like Hemanta Biswa Sharma of Assam said"RG was busy petting dogs and feeding them biscuits" when Assam Congress members were discussing serious issues,that is the amount of importance he gives to his party members,no wonder they are leaving that party in droves,as it's doomed with the "Gandhi(Nehru clan)" name tag.

    congress has propped up local party's in every state to cut BJP vote share,now those party's are playing sikular card better than congress.
    Congress has become nobody in almost all states.
    Congress has no presence in AP,telangana,UP,TN,bihar,bengal,orissa,RAJ,GUJ .

    All top congress leaders will face heat from CBI. Robert Vadra associates are being raided today,Chiddu in CBI dock.

    Every one in congress will fallout.Congress hunting season will start.

    Short Annotation of the Congress Leaders.

    Rahul Gandhi : Lacks understanding, Expressing Skills to both Rural and Urban areas. Quite often than not he is misunderstood.

    Priyanka Gandhi : Never have been elevated to power, Her Husband scams and corruption might overshadow her aurora. Drinking issues.

    Sonia Gandhi : Still considered as outlander immaterial of controlling the whole party under her thumb.

    Diggi : Nothing more need to be said about him, he is a BJP spy rofl.

    Overall INC outlook is bleak if they dont change the peoples attitude about INC.
    Forget riding on anti-incumbent wave, even if such exists there is no one capable of take the helm and responding without getting backfiring and had to swallow their own words.

    Main things take responsibility

    1. Not able to control the coalition parties and their activities.
    2. Too soft to respond, people are impatient these days.
    3. Scams and Corruption.

    etc. etc.

    I don't, that's why I said no matter what really happened. I even stated the same about the generell perception of him because of the scandal, even if he gets cleared, people will have doubts and that's what a party with a scam filled baggage simply can't afford.

    True, but because of the way bigger scandal problems of the UPA (besides of his promises to change things). Do you honestly think that the Indian voters have forgotten all those issues? UPA couldn't even convince anybody, that they actually did good on economics in a global financial crisis(which they did!), because everyone was focused on the scams.
    So for Congress to look at weakpoints of BJP (and there surely are better once than prohibition), doesn't cut it! First Congress has to show that they have changed, before they have to prove that they are better, but that's not going to happen if you stick with the same old people.

    As you said yourself, Rahul sooner or later will take over for Sonia and that would be even a good decision as the first sign of change, but obviously by far not enough, people need to be convinced by policy changes and some more cuts of the older politicians in the party, otherwise people will say that Congress hasn't learned it's lessons.

    Not eleveted to power is the biggest mistake they have done. You could have simply played the women card with her and in reminiscences of Indira.

    The issues with her husband could actually play in her favour (as long not proven and him convicted)!
    First of all because it's more difficult to attack a women publically in debates or speeches than it would be to attack Rahul. And at the same time her standing up against Modis/BJPs allegations will give more credit, than if Rahul says exactly the same.
    Secondly, because the issues are not related to her directly, which again plays in favour for woman votes when you spin it that women are not responsible for their husbands mistakes.

    Upto my info she has a lot baggage and the dirt is way too deep for her to pursue anything credible in political field. But hey we are talking about India people forget as time passes.

    So in effect, you people do not allow horse slaughter in USA, and if any American has to buy horse meat, it has to be imported from Scotland or Wales. Pretty much like how Indian 5-star hotels import beef from Argentina.

    Again: Can't live without beef? Don't come to India, or be rich enough to afford 5-star hotels in metro cities.

    That's contradictory mate, either you want to see results, which must mean keeping campaign promises of development, double digit GDP and more jobs which is critical for Indias youth and demographic.

    Or you just want him to act busy, even if the results are not showing what you wanted.

    There are plenty of points that I wouldn't agree to wrt to their failures but most importantly to point 10, because limiting the view to Hindus and not Indians is the clearest sign of dividing the country and in times of Terror, the continues threat from Pakistan and a faster growing threat from China, the last thing India needs is a division within based on religion!

    But I share your view that the only way for Congress is to get voters trust back, mainly by policy and if at all secondly by personalities.
