There seems to be a clear pro-business stand on the part of the BJP. You can be assured that there will be better prospects for more jobs and more developmental activities. A firmer drive towards privatization will be pushed. There will be lesser barriers for businesses being setup and will drive the economy better. On the flip side BJP is also very close to the industrialists and you can bet that there will NOT really be a clear and level playing field for newer competitors to come in which is essential for capitalism. Think a new player going against Reliance Gas etc.
No idea what will happen. With people like Meera Sanyal and Capt Gopinath on one hand and Medha patkar and Yogendra Yadav on the other , all of whom seem to be prominent members of the party , I really do not know what they will do. They seem to indicate that they are pro-business , but I can’t see any evidence of that. They oppose FDI in retail, and whenever faced with a tough question they side on the populist side of things (think free water etc) which are good for people in the short run , but bad in long run (Think about tax payers money which was used to fund the subsidy)
Winner : BJP ! (Unless AAP gets its act together and gives some very specific economic policies in its manifesto rather than the whole, “we will please everyone” nonsense)
I do not believe that PM Narendra Modi is communal. There does not seem to be any evidence of that. His speeches seem to show him as more secular than most AAP members (eg : AAP has started playing communal card suddenly which is more divisive than anything Modi has done after 2002). Yes he is Hindu and proud of it. Nothing wrong in that. That said , the BJP is still a regressive party when it comes to social liberties (Opposing Gay decriminalization, RSS nonsense with ‘western culture’ etc.). On the face of it AAP seems to be made up of socialy liberal faces , but some of its policies like supporting khans makes me a bit wary. They way, he greeted PM Nawaz Sariff on his birthday on Christmas and relation with Afghainstan. They are totally surprise move by our PM.
Winner : BJP
The AAP is going to be way way better than the Congress and pretty competitive with BJP on this front. If nothing , almost all people in AAP are definitely anti-Corruption. The BJP on the other hand is giving tickets to people like yeddurappa. Even if you do not support the Jan Lokpal bill like me(On reducing bureaucracy grounds) , you still have to grant it to AAP that corruption will probably be dealt fairly under an AAP regime . BJP has strictly followed corruption-free state in their regime, and they are working very hard to see, that no one gets corrupt.
Two year of election has passed and we are seeing no Corruption until in BJP and unitl PM Narendra modi is there, we can be assured that , there will be no corruption in BJP for coming years too. Our PM Narendra modi is pretty good and very very strict with given scenario. AAP has couple of members too who are corrupted badly like recently we heard news about CM Secretary and some other people who were involved in auto scam of Delhi.
Winner : BJP until we have our PM Narendra modi
AAP does not have a strong leader like BJP who can deal with politicians on the world stage , neither does it have the will to enforce measures against Naxals or pakistan or in the NE (especially with the JNU social studies club becoming an affiliate :P) , nor does it have any means of enforcing a manifesto that is strong , yet acceptable to everyone in its fold with their varied backgrounds.
BJP on the other hand as some real supreme leader who can deal with such issue very forcefully. Many such deals between PM Narendra modi and other Countries are tying each other for security too.
Winner : BJP ( miles miles away).
BJP has a top down power structure with Modi keeping check on the entire party , he will be able to quell dissent and keep people in check to keep a strong party and get rid of the riff raff. This of course means that we will be forced to agree with Modi on most things rather than an actual democratic setup where everyones voice is heard. AAP has a much more agreeable structure with them going more in the direction of in-party democracy, but again there seems to be no proper procedures here which can stand the test of time , with party members questioning things all the time.
Winner : BJP in all Scenario.
To sum up , if you want a good power structure with a pro-business and development friendly atmosphere and national security as a priority , and want to see India ranking and getting recognition everywhere in world, vote for BJP for stronger and very effective government.
If you want to push the anti-corruption agenda and have more liberal social atmosphere and are willing to put up with a weaker and more ineffective govt , vote for AAP.
This should not affect your choice, but my choice at the moment is BJP. Unless AAP fixes some of the things mentioned here.
Economic / development model
Convicted criminals as members
Both BJP and Congress are equally bad in this regards.
BJP – 2/3 points
Congress – 2/3 points
AAP – Little clean image and but its still a small party and there is guess, that this party is basically group of power hungry people. Based on current record I award 2/3 points.
So, with conclusion, we can clearly see, BJP is way ahead.
