Display of immaturity and hype by BJP and RSS is unfortunate
It is really very unfortunate and absurd the way BJP and RSS are behaving post exit polls predictions. Meetings between party leaders, Nitin Gadkari's sudden appearance as a mediator, discussion and bargaining for portfolios, possible positions for veteran leaders etc, as if BJP has won the election officially!

Exit polls are just a forecast based on a sample survey! Isn't it immature to behave like this? Even if they are confident that they are going to form the government, still it is expected that as a mature party they must be patient and exhibit decency!

And what RSS is doing? It appears that it is RSS all the way at the centre of possible NDA government! No one will disagree that this time RSS cadres worked very hard on the ground for BJP’s success. But that doesn’t mean RSS to rule India indirectly! This way they not only compromise their official stance being a cultural organization but also liable to be challenged in a court of law for being politically active!

What would happen if exit polls backfire? Where they all will hide their faces? If RSS would interfere in the matters so openly, forget about new allies, even the present allies may distance from BJP! Even BJP makes 272+ on its own, still it requires allies because it can't do legislative business due to lack of majority in Rajya Sabha!

One can understand the insecurity among BJP veterans and even RSS top brass. They know that Narendra Modi is not a man who can be guided through any remote control or any hot line instructions from Nagpur. If shackles are tried to put on him, he may bear it for couple of months or little more, but finally he has to come on his own! His agenda is only development and he would definitely carry on his agenda if chosen. One shouldn’t forget what he did to Sanjay Joshi of RSS and Pravin Togadia of VHP!

If Narendra Modi wins the election, it’s due to endorsement by Indian public and RSS' ground level cadres. Neither the veteran leaders of BJP or top brass of RSS would be having any role in it. If they poke their nose too much, they would be subjected to humiliation later on!

Maturity, decency and discipline should be the hall mark in public behavior.
