BJP needs to find special strategy to counter Aam Aadmi Party
The violent clashes between AAP and BJP though were unfortunate but not unexpected. This is AAP's strategy to act as storm troopers provoking BJP so as to hog the media headlines. What irked many intellectuals is the way BJP fell in AAP's trap.

AAP perhaps had no option other than to provoke Modi, BJP, Congress and all other important people so as to create a controversy to remain in media so that its campaign can continue. There's very less time remaining for them (AAP) for ground level preparation thus this is only way out!

It's definitely a failure on BJP's part to get impacted at AAP's provocation. Counter-attack, showing black flags, coming with sticks, breaking cars' glasses, in no way justifies BJP's national stature. It only shows that like AAP, BJP too is ready for street fight. One can ignore AAP due to their immaturity, but how can one approve BJP's counter anarchism?

BJP needs to urgently find ways and means to counter AAP attacks as more such attacks will come in future and at a increased scale. It would be always better not to react at AAP's provocations and let the administration take care of any illegal acts. Matured leaders and parties always remain unprovoked. During Kejriwal's UP tour despite provocations from AAP, none had reacted.

Though Election Commissioner took a note of AAP's attack on BJP's head quarter at Delhi, but not likely to take any stern action because it has no such powers. This had been earlier proved in the case of Salman Khurshid and Varun Gandhi case whore both had given very provocative and unacceptable speeches in previous elections. It can warn only and at best book a case.

Many experts are of opinion that this general election would be marred with violence particularly confronting each other on streets. Many blame the degrading parliamentary behaviors in last Lok Sabha. If one can consider pepper spray and brandishing of knife in the House in addition to the common hooliganism and obstructions, he would agree that whatever AAP is doing is less than the exhibited parliamentary behaviors? One of my friends told that AAP is not doing any unparliamentary act established as of now!

However, I think the onus on healthy democracy is always on public to choose their representatives wisely. At the same time bigger parties must demonstrate their credibility while contesting in healthier ways. Else what is the difference between them and anarchic parties?
