Say it again, Madan bhai

The venerable Mathihalli Madan Mohan, long-time Hubli special correspondent of The Hindu, who now writes a weekly column for us, sent us this terse but telling note after Siddaramaiah sneaked through: “Chamundeshwari has proved once again, how unreliable is any calculation based on the caste factors, with which our worthy colleagues in the media are too preoccupied.”

    Maybe. But can you totally rule out castewise voting just because a few thousand votes were bought? We all know how caste conscious we are.

    I agree caste considerations do play a role. But how can you quantify them and apportion the caste votes among different political parties and personalities. We will be only skating on thin ice.
