The recent state elections, in which the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) failed to leverage the Mumbai terror attacks to its political advantage, suggested that national security was not such a critical issue. Not so, says a survey conducted by the Marketing and Development Research Associates (MDRA) in December. It shows that six out of 10 voters believe that national security/terrorism is a key issue, though BJP’s Hindutva philosophy is not getting the traction.
