Delhi Elections!! A mockery of democracy!!

Its been almost a week when the entire print and electronic media was fully covered by the very well accepted charisma of Arvind Kejriwal and the performance of his party in recent Delhi election where they won miraculous 67 seats out of 70. Now the question arises how and why? I went through lot of media coverage and stories on Kejriwal and his party workers going door to door, raising common issues of public and making them believe that they are the true massiah to the aam aadmi. Some great political analysts and orators believe that its the sleeping sub conscious of the people which led the land slide victory of AAM AADMI Party. They were able to awaken the public like Annie Basant, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Swami Vivekanand and all.

When I did my research over the voters of Delhi then I got to know some of the very unfortunate and harsh reality of the pain people live with everyday in Delhi. Below are some of the points :

1. The cops on the streets of Delhi has taken the complete contract to harass the common man to collect their pocket money which is equally distributed from top to bottom in their respective departments.

2. Water shortage problem is actually there in many prominent parts of Delhi specially during the summer.

3. Load shedding is there which can make the life hell in Delhi during summer time.

4. Law and order situation can be guessed very easily if you check any news channel. Carrying gun and shooting at others has actually became very easy on the streets of Delhi like there is no administration.

When the AAP came into existence they first targeted Congress government both at state and center. People accepted that very easily by ignoring the fact that whatever infrastructural development happened in Delhi is mostly in Congress reign. Be it flyovers, metro rail, bus services and many more. They forgot very basic facts that apart from development Delhi kept on seeing the population growth months by months and year by year. It has come to the bottleneck for any city. Any city infrastructure has got some limits to tolerate a certain level of population in its arena. Similar is the pain with Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Chennai and Pune.

And AAP kept on misguiding people of Delhi. Blaming any political party is another name for the lure to come into the power and so Arvind Kejrival is no different here. They will also face the similar issue and will be highly criticized by the public in coming time. And I will not mind to accept that Congress is paying the cost for their own sins of limiting the development up to few cities and states in India. People from Bihar, UP , Rajasthan, Haryana, J&K and North East comes and settles down in Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Bangalore and other bigger cities every day for their better lives and earning. And then they becomes the voters of that place and demands equal rights for themselves.

But what Delhites has done to themselves will really cost them to that extent that they will be seen crying in few months but as per Indian constitution god himself will not be able to help them for the next 5 years. Giving complete mandate to one party and that too over the promises of fee electricity, water, wifi, etc. is actually very societal and not at all good for any democracy. Some of my friends who voted for AAP are saying that if Kejrival doesn’t perform then he will be ousted in 6 months like they have voted for 6 months only. People mistrusting congress can be very well understood but not trusting BJP completely is really surprising.

BJP has never been in Delhi from last 15 years and so it cannot be blamed for things which they have not done. So, what if they nominated Kiran Bedi as the CM candidate? Why can’t she be CM? She has a proven track record for being an honest public servant for almost 40 years in Police Services. She has worked for the People by being the part of the system without any question being raised at her. So, what if our PM got to wear an expensive suit? He is head of this nation at this part of the time and received a gift which is being auctioned now for the charity purpose. So, the question is what people of Delhi actually thinks these days?

That the person with ordinary cloths can be honest and person with name embedded suit is corrupt. Right? Then stop worshiping Ram and Krishna because they too belonged to the kingdoms and always portrayed rich in the calenders or photographs we are having. If clothing is the reason to believe and show your trust in a person or God then only Sai Baba seems to qualify the reason for being worshiped . Its very unfortunate to see the result of Delhi but I am still positive and want to see them working in the interest of this nation and make the nation believe that what Delhites has done is actually right and people should take that as the revolutionary change in the Indian politics. It would be a real big cheating to the people of Delhi if AAP doesn’t meet their huge expectations.

The funny elections in India!!


Elections in India are getting more and more funnier with time and the subject political science is being re invented by our politicians. In some aspects it is actually getting better because of the very strong and remarkable role played by media(some call it as paid media) which keeps on entertaining the public by their judgement. You may refer to the programs led by some of the famous journalists like Arnab Goswami, Rahul Kanwal, Deepak Chaurasiya and all. Most of the time you will find the politicians struggling with them.

The recent election of Delhi is becoming symbol of a very new kind of politics of poster war, cartoons and all. I am personally enjoying that because every day I get to see some of the most brilliant creativity by paid cartoonists of BJP. Everyday I find a new peculiar and funny cartoons for Arvind Kejriwal or his AAM AADMI Party. The battle of cartoons can actually take you back in your childhood when reading comics of chacha chaudhary was the most delighting thing possible at that time. Truly speaking a voter like me can get highly impressed with the idea of comics series on Kejriwal and his party, because BJP is appearing more efficient in depicting the flaws of his rivals through posters or cartoons.

Blame game was the prime thing in Indian politics from the very long time, I mean it might have started in 80s but became more prominent in 90s specially during the era of Atal Bihari Vajpayi. So, there is nothing new in that but the AAM AADMI Party launched a new methodology of dragging business houses as well into the discussion. If you see his speeches then it will thrill you to the very core. Most of the part of his speech will be like ” Ambani chor hai ji, Adani chor hai, BJP waale bijli ka meter laga rahe hain aur woh meter tej bhaag rahi hai” and the remaining will be like ” ham satta me aayenge toa bijli free, paani free, wifi free, bus free, auto free” . He has literally ensured that Delhi is gonna be the first city where you actually don’t need money to live because his government will provide everything for free.

Then some new flicks came for raising party funds like dinner with Kejriwal, selfie with Kejriwal, tea with Kejriwal and all for just rupees 20000. See how our political science is getting better and better. Means the actual aam aadmi can never ever think of having chai or samosa with Kejriwal because they are suppose to pay 20000 rupees before actually doing that. BJP has given new mantras of utilizing babas and saadhus for their victory. Saint Gurmeet Rami Rahin and Baba Ramdev supported BJP to win and see the result. All the adds between news break will start with Patanjali dawakhana’s products like dant kranti, kesh kranti and all. And on the other side there is historic release of a movie named ‘MSG’ in which a god man is the lead actor. That is simply a wow experience :P.

But the best things is the hell lot of entertainment out of all this drama. BJP calls Kejriwal a Bhagora and Kejriwal calling BJP and congress as corrupt parties. Journalists telling Anna Hazare ‘Sir, you have been used by your own disciples for their political ambitions’ . Manoj Tiwari’s campaign by singing song after every two lines. I heard somewhere that Indian audiences like the comedy movie above all the other choices they have and so is the case in Indian politics now. People who can strip others more using cartoons and posters will win the election :P.
