The Aam Aadmi Party doesn't need 272 seats to win India. Just 3. Try to see this as a war - and you'll see two strong goliath armies. On the one side, there's the evil Congress, with its scheming empress Sonia and weak heir-apparent Rahul who is trying hard to look bulked-up. There is no second line here - no regional commanders, only foot-soldiers on low pay. And on the other side is the chieftain of the moment Modi with his strong regional satraps going along for the ride to victory - but happy to take on power if Modi were to fall by the wayside. Into this battle strides a little David, with no money, no resources, nothing. What is David's best option? A quick analysis will show that if Rahul and Sonia were knocked off their perches, the Congress will quickly collapse. And if Modi was to lose his Varanasi seat even after winning his Gujarat seat, the pack of wolves in the BJP will themselves send him back, tail between legs, to Gujarat. So what's the most efficient use of David's meagre resources? I'd say it is to take Rahul, Sonia and Modi head on - and defeat them. Three seats. That's all. The AAP wouldn't come to power. It'd win a few more perhaps even 50 or 100 more. But within months or a year, what is left of the Congress in parliament and what is left of the BJP in parliament will be sure to self-destruct - and the country will go to the polls again, mid-term. That is when the AAP can actually make a stronger effort to come to power. And break the see-saw duopoly of UPA and NDA that they believe plagues the country. Mahesh Murthy
