    Why is the BJP so badly placed in Tamil Nadu?

    While Narendra Modi stands tall as a very honest leader, his number two man, Amit Shah is often referred to as a bully from many people from all over India. When this fellow addressed a party gathering recently, he started quoting some statistics on the amount of money given as grants for various schemes. When he touched the scheme of drip irrigation, a very useless H.Raja, who calls himself a big leader of the BJP translated that as urine irrigation!!!

    This has made the entire State mock at such a ridiculous translation. The BJP head of the State, one Ms. Thamizisai Soundarrajan is a huge comedian. Her words are never taken seriously. She is never known as a person of great intelligence. There could be some other leaders who are brighter than these two, and another very average Pon Radhakrishnan, who completes the trio of comedians.

    The father of the BJP chief, is unlike this lady. His name is Kumari Anandan, who is now indisposed. He is still rated high in the Tamil Nadu politics.

    Can the BJP ditch these three and push them to the sidelines. The party desperately needs intelligent leaders.

    Yes I also feel that BJP has to rope in good leaders who can put forth the party agenda and policies in good prospective so that TN people understand this. Either too people were choosing between the two dravidian parties to the power but now they are fed up with both the parties and wants alternative. The BJP which can give alternative does not have proper grass route level leaders nor the tall leaders. The other day PM Modi advised Party President Amit Shah to rope in new blood into the party across the country before the next election comes. Lets hope even TN is benefited with that.

    People try for an alternative only when they are totally dissatisfied with the existing alternatives. In Tamil Nadu(and similarly in Kerala), the people alternate their choice between the two strong sides ADMK and DMK. All other small fry have to join either of them. Election after election the vote banks get more and more benefits and favours from either side. They have used this trick to bargain and get more at every election. So they do not have reason to get dissatisfied with the two sides. The vote banks are cultivated and kept in such status that their parameter of choice is who can give more to us. As both parties have great loyal cadre following, vote-bank voters will fear to cheat. Influential leaders also jump-out from or rejoin either these two parties. Both parties keep their cadre happy by various means.

    So there is no sufficient space in TN for a third party to emerge victorious in a way to rule the state. Almost similar situation is there in Kerala also.

    BJP has leaders in both states. What it needs is strong and steady followers. As there is no charismatic leader who can stir the common people it may be very difficult for BJP to gain strong position in these two states in the near.

    What is more surprising in Tamil Nadu politics is that even the Congress which calls itself a national party has to take sides with either one of the Dravidian party to win and participate in the government ?

    I think the credit goes to Ramaswamy Naicker and CM Annadurai. Their ideology has impressed the people of Tamilnadu so much that even more than 40 years of their death, the people of the state are continuing to vote to those parties which support the ideologies of these two men (although it is verbal support). But this support is diminishing, although slowly. In another twenty years, the state can expect to see a new party in power.

    This is my personal opinion.

    Beware! I question everything and everybody.
