    AAP should have shown more perseverance. Those guys are not bad, but they throw way too much tantrum and act like children. They could have done good for Delhi, if they didn't accept support from Congress and have stayed in opposition.

    Lol.. Looks like Cong have conceded defeat based on the exit polls and their own sources... Sir Gandhi's image has been removed from all propaganda posters being printed (to save face for a later date probably). A number of reasons are being cited from lack of proper campaigning to anti-incumbency thoughts of the people.

    Nothing against them, but one argument.. You don't just win and lose polls on campaigning alone. What image you put in the people's mind is what comes out when they press the button.

    I have no idea how true Modi's governance is. But when I visited Ahmedabad, I was surprised to see the cleanliness, maintenance and efficiency of the city. Family living there have had no issues for so many years now. This speaks volumes.

    The good parts that I see..

    BJP gets outright majority, so the prospect of a stable government is realized.

    Congress are on the brink of not possibly sitting in the opposition even, but they will manage it somehow.

    Jr. Gandhi is no where to be seen with the media asking for his acceptance.

    How this pans out in the next 2-3 years, only time will tell, but BJP does have it's hands full for the next few years, if they want to stay in power again.

    Lol...

    They should -

    1) Legalize gambling and tax it

    2) Organize prostitution with a proper system so that there is no child trafficking in it.

    3) Open Casinos and leisure centers to boost tourism

    4) Have a incentive system for police officers for fines issued. Also have video proof of the fine.

    5) Re-vamp the current supply chain for essentials like electricity, water and gas

    6) Increase the price of diesel to the actual price. The hit is what the hit is. One time taking the hit will reduce our fiscal deficit in the long run. And people might start making the sensible choice while buying a car as well.

    7) Implement a strict Birth control policy. A-la China

    :cool: Also implement controls for female infanticide. Needed badly.

    Some of the things that I can think of.

    ^^ It's a one time hit.. and as is diesel is being hiked every month by 50P. How much time would it take?

    Diesel is expensive the world over (vs Petrol) it's only in our some bungled thought country that it's subsidized.

    Transport cost will go up by 20%, but it's a one time hit. Why should the disparity be paid by a consumer of petrol.

    I have debated this endlessly. Why should a person riding a fuel efficient bike, trying to save money from his monthly budget, pay for the in-efficient Diesel SUV Owner, who is right next to him at a signal.

    This will be a huuuge one time hit, most of our population coulnt afford to take price rise..

    Infaxt when price control is their biggest challenge. Even 5-10 rs price rise hurts the budget of families..

    ^ So paying 7 Rs extra for every liter of petrol you put in your car/bike is not hitting your budget?

    It's about taking a hard decision and making it work. For all we know, it could help usher in a development, that spreads industries/residences/productions units across the country, rather than keeping them concentrated in one giant over flowing city.

    We are no U.S. or China, but we do have to over come the concept of going to a big city to work. There is work in smaller cities as well. A higher transportation cost will impact this the other way, by spreading out the population and reducing the gaps.

    We have to learn to spread out, and the future lies in that. We can't keep choking cities that are already overflowing.
