The BJP is yet to give the voter a reason to vote for the party

Arun Jaitley in How to win in 2014 (July 8) has failed to focus on the real issue. The BJP leader is not sure whether his party will get a clear mandate in the next general elections and has missed the opportunity to explain what the BJP’s roadmap is to tackle the problems the country is currently facing. How the party will address rising inflation, fuel prices, higher taxes, corruption, terrorism, etc has not been explained in the article. On what parameters is the party expecting the voter to decide in its favour in the next general elections?

Arun Jaitley makes an honest assessment that with the BJP and the Congress having lost a few key allies in the recent past some regional leaders have started talking about a federal or third front. It is rightly said that there is no regional politician who can keep other parties together for a long time in a third front government. Interestingly, though the names of Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi have been doing the rounds, neither the BJP nor the Congress has officially declared them as prime ministerial candidates for their respective parties.

A clarification

With regard to the report Ex-mayor’s nephew denied bail (July 5) and Landlord assaults two foreign tenants (June 26), I would like to clarify that I belong to a different family unit and the accused belongs to a different family unit. My family comprises me, my husband, my children, their spouses and grandchildren. After the demise of my father-in-law, we are living independently in our own residential units. In the reports my name has unnecessarily been linked with another family unit.
