BJP’s Rout in Bihar
Sunday 6 December 2015
In the Bihar Assembly elections, the BJP, the standard-bearer of Hindutva and Hindu chauvanism, has suffered a crushing and humiliating defeat. This rout of the BJP, as has rightly been pointed out by Rahul Gandhi, the Vice-President of the Congress, is decidedly a defeat of the BJP’s ideology which follows a policy of communal hatred and which stands for implementing the RSS agenda of converting India into a Hindu country and establishing a Hindu state and which also aims at completely destroying our precious centuries-old composite national culture or Ganga-Jamni culture and tolerance which are the characteristic features of our country.
This is a grand voctory of Indian nationalism and secularism. Equally, this defeat is the defeat of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on account of his failure of fulfilling and implementing his high-sounding promises of reducing sky-rocketing prices and ending corruption.
