* "They are not united. They have made no progress. Then why do they call themselves the United Progressive Alliance?"
* "If pro is the opposite of con, what is the opposite of progress?"
* "Do you want to see India united? Do you want to see India progress? Then it's time to make the United Progressive Alliance disappear."
Each of these, the entire text of a print ads. They have appeared in my morning paper, one a day over the last three days.
Well, not the entire text. At the bottom of each of the ads is "Shiv Sena-BJP Alliance" and "Issued by Shivsena Central Office, Dadar, Mumbai."
These are also the only ads I've seen from the SS-BJP Alliance.
So what's it, the SS-BJP Alliance has no programme to offer voters? It can find nothing to say about what it plans to do if it comes to power? It's ashamed of its vision for India, so much so that it prefers to stay silent?
I mean, what's a voter to do who's disillusioned with the current government? A voter, for example, like me? I look around for alternatives, but the major alternative out there can offer only a puerile play on words. With zero about its plans for my country.
Yeah, that's the way to get my vote. Sure.
