Yes it is. Whatever the eventual outcome, the BJP's current plight carries one clear message: more so than ever before, in Indian politics today ideology counts for nothing, and the cult of personality counts for everything. Politics in India means the politics of personality. A similar lesson is being learnt at the other end of the political spectrum by the CPM, which along with the BJP got a drubbing in the last polls. The Marxists' anti-US, anti-free market ideological stance at the Centre (as represented by Comrades Karat and Yechury) was at total dissonance with Bengal CM Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee's pro-industry and pro-capital misadventures in Nandigram and Singur. With no charismatic leader for it to rally around, the communists are a sinking ship. A ship, moreover, which has been scuttled by Mamata Banerjee, whose Trinamul Congress amply demonstrates that politics is not about ideology but idolatry, the object of veneration in this case being the fiery Mamatadi!!

Hope anushka desai's prediction comes true. Coz it is very much need for Indian politics, Single strong party without strong opposition or threat for the government is dangerous. It becomes a autocratic goverment then than democracy.
