As reports come of BJP winning elections at local and state levels, one reason being given is a recent trend of consolidation of Hindu voters just like there has been historic and continuing consolidation of Muslim voters. The Muslim voters consolidation is more organized and planned. But the Hindu consolidation appears to be a soft reaction to the extreme appeasement and goodies given to and thrown at the Muslim voters, which is at the cost of the Hindu voters who contribute much larger to the tax base. VOTERS ARE FED UP WITH THE SECULAR PARTIES and now minority politics is proving counter-productive for the so-called “secular” parties. Hopefully these secular parties would care to listen to change course to avoid sinking even more.
