Landslide??? The fact is that the BJP won a mere 30 percent of the  
vote--ie., an overwhelming majority of Indian voters voted AGAINST the  
BJP.  Its lower-house majority is a pure artifact of the  
antidemocratic "first past the post" electoral system gifted to the  
Indian ruling classes by their former Anglo-Saxon overlords; and that  
it got even as much support as it did was because it  was among those  
benefitting from the overwhelming anti-Congress vote. The Maoists'  
ideological sins had nothing at all to do with that.
