There is no strong opposition party in the country and Congress is in a advantage positions. BJP is weighed down by its internal squabbles. Whatever the reason, India’s oldest party has every reason to deliver now.

But the fact is there is no other party enough to oppose Congress. In fact I voted for Congress but more of a helplessness because BJP has become a joke and no other party are credible enough. This is very scary. Not good choices in democracy!

Thats exactly what they have done so far and the opposition helped them get away with it.

The BJP-Sena spent most of the time fighting their off shoot the MNS. Raj Thackeray seemed to be their common opponent not the Congress. Their whole campaign was an attck on the MNS rather than the pitiable state of governance the Congress dished out for 10 years. They had any number of issues in almost any section of the State to knock the Congress off their feet.

The Congress today may be patting itself on the back for having outwitted the Sena through Raj Thackeray with his limited agenda. In the bargain they have unleashed a scorpion who will sting them very soon . This again is old style Congress functioning, short term gains, long term suicide. They will be dancing to Raj’s tune within a few months. He will determine the agenda and the Congress will go into panic mode trying to control events which require them to show some backbone.
