Q: Isn't it amazing that more than 7 decades after independence, a son of a former Chief Minister is just a school drop out and goes on to become the Deputy Chief Minister of a state? If he had any entrance examination or minimum qualification to qualify for this post I am sure he would not have been any where in the race. Don't you think it is high time that we should have a minimum qualification for people to occupy these posts.A: I don't see anything wrong. Kamraj was totally illiterate and yet he became the Congress party and he was one of the most admired political leaders. We should judge the person by his actions and not just paper qualification.Bhanu PrakashBangalore, 26-11-2015
Q: Nitish became CM for first 10 years with support of BJP; now for 5 years he becomes CM with support of Lalu; Is there any possibility that Nitish may become CM with Paswan's support for another 5 years?A: Paswan always practices politics of power. He gained by becoming part of the NDA. Now he has lost in Bihar. It wouldn't be surprise if he joins Nitish later if he feels that it would pay be electoral dividends for him and his son.BharatiChennai, 26-11-2015
Q: Why are the BJP Veterans airing views in public instead of talking such issues in BJP Forums,internally? Are they also playing petty politics to embarrass the PM Modi and BJP President Amit Shah?A: There are few individuals in the BJP who would like Modi to fail and they have been quietly flirting with anti-MODI SECUALRAL AND LIBERAL FORCES. However, those who are making objectionable comments are habitual offenders and they should be ignoredShankar RaoBengaluru, 26-11-2015
Q: Do you agree with BJP's claim that Congress manufactured and sponsored Intolerance agitation against BJP Government to damage the name and fame of PM Modi?A: Since most of the people who are speaking on the issue have never been friends of the BJP, one could safely conclude that the protest has the support of the Congress party. But what is surprising is the conduct of the BJP leaders and Ministers who give too much importance to such celebrities.Shankar RaoBengaluru, 26-11-2015
