In the era of technology and communication, people have access to information readily and therefore they understand facts and figures quite well. They can’t be fooled any more.
The Bharatiya Janata Party has been winning elections purely on the plank of development. The Congress
is clueless and facing a crisis of credibility and, perhaps, even existence. Before making a comeback the party will have to do a lot of soul-searching. It has to think beyond the Gandhi family for survival.
The immediate task for the Congress
is to rebuild its image and play the role of a constructive Opposition in Parliament.
Given the dominance of the BJP, regional parties will have a tough time unless they look beyond their respective territories, and act effectively and collectively. Perform or perish is the mantra.
