In the article ‘Needed Most: A strong Opposition’ the views expressed and assessment made by Mr. M J Akbar is appropriate. The main opposition party BJP is severely hit by “Jaswant swine flu”. The credibility of its leaders and the party is at new low. As the president of the party Mr. Rajnath Singh has failed miserably. Second rung leaders do not take him seriously. His influence and authority is limited to the state of Uttar Pradesh. The Left which is in power in West Bengal and Kerala are likely to fare very badly in the coming assembly elections because of their out dated ideology and lack of understanding of the nitty-gritty of the fast developing, ever changing dynamics of the economy. The much talked Third front is non-existent. Yadavs are lost somewhere in the middle and fighting for their own surrvial, leave alone building the party at national level. Regional parties are losing their sheen. Mr. Rahul Gandhi is re-building the party from grass root level. The young voters who decide the fate of 2014 parliament elections are likely to give a massive mandate to Congress by default.
