Abdullah said people want an alternative, but we are not giving them one, so someone has to bite the bullet.

He admitted that Modi is a formidable force in terms of mobilising public opinion, hogging headlines, and arranging resources, and it is difficult to fight him in every respect.

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.”



Abdullah said if someone wakes up one day and decides to defeat him, then it won’t be possible. He said it requires a lot of planning which is not happening at the moment in the India’s political arena.

For Congress, he said it’s time for introspection. The party should within itself what is not right with them.

“The old model of functioning from headquarters in Delhi doesn’t seem to be working. Congress should go back to the drawing board. I work in a party that is decades old and I know that change doesn’t come easily,” he pointed out.

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.
