Abdullah said people want an alternative, but we are not giving them one, so someone has to bite the bullet.
He said: “BJP has a very finely tuned election machine. It doesn’t always work but it’s there and they know how to use it.”
For Congress, he said it’s time for introspection. The party should within itself what is not right with them.
He underlined that it will be tough for the Congress to change how it works out things because of the deep-rooted vested interests.
It should be noted that neither the Congress nor the UPA led by it is in a position to pose any serious challenge to the BJP. The NDA is at power in 12 states while the UPA has shrunk to just seven states. Except for Karnataka and Bihar, the others are comparatively smaller states.
