Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

For BJP , winning the upcoming State Elections ( West Bengal - Tamilnadu - Assam - Kerala - Pondicherry ) in 2016 , is very important

Currently , these are all non-BJP states , with a combined total of :

*  825  MLAs ( of which , only  5 MLAs belong to BJP  !  )

*    52  Rajya Sabha Members

For BJP , winning is important because of the Economic Reforms getting stalled in Rajya Sabha , where it lacks a majority

As far as the citizens of all these States are concerned , having a BJP government in their States can make a big difference to their economic progress , due to much better coordination with the BJP-led Central Government

But , while campaigning , BJP cannot use this argument to win a popular mandate  !  We know why  !

However , of all the political parties contesting , ONLY  BJP hold a  TRUMP  CARD  !

To win , all that Amitbhai Shah would like is for Shri Arun Jaitleyji to make following Budget announcement on 29 Feb 2016 ( before the Model Code of Conduct , kicks in ) :

"  Starting 01 April 2016 , Personal Income Tax stands abolished for SC / ST / OBC / Dalit and other Economically Backward Communities ( EBC = persons with annual income below Rs 5 lakhs ) "

Now , which political party dare oppose such a Poor-Friendly measure  ?

If any party does , it is bound to lose the votes of these communities !

And the beauty of this " Winning Strategy " is :

Hardly any adverse impact on revenues of the Central Government  !

Of some 3 crore individual tax-payers , no more than 1 crore , may belong to such communities

And together, they might be contributing no more than 10 % of the Personal Tax Revenue of Rs 2.5 lakh*crores  !

Now , very likely , Shri Jaitleyji will turn around and ask Amitbhai Shah :

"  Would not this lead to similar demand ( total abolition of Personal Income Tax ) , from rest of the Voters ? "

Of course , it would !

But then , Amitbhai would say :

"  Right now , we have a war to be won . In love and war , everything is fair  !
