The day this issue appears, four states will vote. People ask: "Who will win?" Does it matter? "Yes, these polls will affect the parliamentary polls next year!" But do those polls matter? Consider the current poll campaign. The Congress says the BJP is soft on rape. The BJP says the Congress is soft on murder. The Congress says Dilip Singh Judeo should be arrested for corruption. The BJP says Ajit Jogi should be arrested for forgery. Both parties have the same poll message: "Their party is more criminal than our party."

In fact, all parties are equally criminal. India stands on the threshold of collapse unless there is revolutionary change—a new political culture and a new political class that must rule India. Battles between political parties have become irrelevant. History waits for war between the people and the politicians.
