- Joining the efforts to spread Eastern -especially Indic- wisdom to the seekers, and discussion & debate for others.
Here are some gems.
1. Voters showed a clear preference for the Congress in 'what is seen as a crucial election likely to have a national impact'.
2. The party (Congress) has seized upon the win to portray its success in Karnataka as a victory against 'the BJP's corruption', in an effort to blunt the BJP's national campaign against 'alleged corruption in the UPA'.
3. 2013 was an election to lose for the BJP. A tentative campaign by Modi and other stalwarts just couldn't turn the tide.
The Hindu cannot, however be faulted for reading accurately what BS Yeddurappa sought to achieve and did. It says, " The Karnataka Janata Paksha (KJP) led by the former chief minister B S Yeddurappa has managed to win just six seats in the 14th Karnataka Assembly elections, but has accomplished its unconcealed task:: of damaging the prospects of the BJP, from which Mr. Yeddurappa made an exit.
History is full of betrayals where benefits accrue only to a third party! Even a biased assessment cannot fail to see this truth.
