Indian Elections in September 2013?. Well as per reports coming in Mulayam singh yadav is said to have passed message to his party workers to be ready for elections in september 2013.
Now this is not the first time that unpredictable mulayam singh yadav has directed his workers to be ready for elections. Only difference is that this time mulayam singh yadav has been more specific as far as time frame goes.
UPA-2 is in minority after mamta banerjee withdrew from collation. UPA-2 is surviving from external support of behn mayawati and mulayam singh yadav’s Samajwadi Party.
If mulayam singh yadav decides to pull the plug it would be difficult for upa-2 to survive. But why would mulayam singh yadav want to pull the plug?.
Media reports claim that mulayam singh yadav is not happy with maya’s taj corridor relieve and he himself being in dock on misappropriate asset case.
Also owing to deteriorating situation of law and order in uttar pradesh, Samajwadi party is quickly loosing ground and Mayawati is gaining ground .
Congress on other hand has one more headache . Already tainted upa would soon see one more scam coming up in budget session. The loan waiver scheme for farmers which brought upa-1 to power has been hit by massive scam.
According to prelim report of cag , 34 lakh farmers haven’t got benefit of the scheme while 24 ineligible have benefited from the scheme.
Many believe that congress would come up with populist budget and them declare elections . Food security bill , direct cash transfer etc seems to be congress’s hope for come back.
Meanwhile it would remained to be seemed whether mulayam singh yadav does implement his words or it is mere pressure building tactics.
Today I met an 70 year old man. When India became independent he was 5 year old. Too young to understand , only thing he remembers about that day is having sweets (bundi ke ladoo).
Like nation he has seen all highs and lows in his life and life of country which he loves. He has seen charisma of nehru . He narrates his experience of nehru’s death where he could not get food because he was out of town and entire nation went on mourning.
He remembers how on call of shashtriji nation went on fast on monday evenings where even restaurants didnt serve food.
He narrates with pride that exceptional politicians we had till Indira Gandhi regime and how politics started taking corrupted flavors soon after .
Today he is disappointed and believes desh ka kutch nahi ho sakta. He believes our politicians in nexus with bureaucracy have developed a system which makes aam aadmi always remain in their control and they make aam aadmi’s life so difficult that he/she would never ever think of revolting against their system.
I agree that a man who is 70 year old has experienced nationhood more , right from its independence to present state of disaster where most corrupted government is ruling the country and which might b replaced by lesser corrupted ones in 2014 but in end all political parties have their shares of corruption and most national leaders are crorepatis without having any job in their life.
Now let us see what are possible ways of governance .
1) Communism :
Political system where group of people rule the nation. They dont allow voting and believe their cadre are only sensible person since their leaders come from cadre . China is example of communist regime and with pace with which china has grown , often people wonder that is it best way to govern nation of billion plus people. My opinion is strict NO. It might help temporarily but in long run it is disastrous system. It curbs creative energy of possibility of governance .
2) Dictatorship :
We have had king system for longest period of time in our history. Modern dictatorships have been seen in Pakistan (recently democratic) , burma , egypt , libya , syria , saudi arabia . List of countries answers the question itself . Dictatorship for 100 crore people cannot work. In History we have had chandra gupt to ashoka , akhbar to aurangzeb who where successful in keeping entire country one , for rest periods we have had multiple kings .
3) Democracy :
The best system of governance as of now. It gives people power to vote and their voices are represented in parliament . Constitution provides the frame work and no government can amend it unless it passes amendment by 2/3 majority.
So in comparison with other existing system of governance , we have best possible system as of now. Agreed we have corruption which had made us loose faith on our political system and political parties.
Now coming to main question or rather statement ‘DESH KA KUTCH NAHI HO SAKTA’. I understand when we have most corrupted regime which churns out scams out of scams , where inflation is having competition with eroding hopes only and communal forces are trying to paint nation in their color , it is obvious to have depressing feelings , resignation and cynicism.
But there are three great things which gives hope . The first thing is our constitution which is one of best Constitution that nation can ever have. Second is our strong adherence to democracy and third is opportunity to introspect.
Yes we have most corrupted government ever , yes we have 180 around criminals in parliament , yes we have communal based politics of all parties including congress, yes we have worst phase since 1970s but thats the WHOLE POINT.
This phase calls us for introspection. Whom are we voting?. Why is one family ruling country for most years?. Why secularism is used for communal politics?. Why yeddys and reddys are elected in assemblies?. Unless we take responsibility and stand , how would thinks work?
Desh Ka Kutch Nahi Ho Sakta? – Hota Kutch Nahi , Karna Padta Hai ….Power of vote is with us and it is we who need to take responsibility of sending right people to parliament .
I am optimistic person and not many times in life ,I feel disappointed with the system to such an extent but these days news pouring in from all quarters is leaving me disappointed.
Chidambaram’s son’s name came into picture in Aircel-Maxis deal as parliament was rocked by allegations. Chidambaram read his son’s written statement!!!!!!!!!!…
The government called UPA-2 is most disappointing government that I have seen in last 20 years. Yes third front attempt in form of v p singh, chandrashekhar, gujral,deve gowda was disaster in form of giving stability but this government is worst and dare i say shameless.
If elections are held today , congress led upa can win elections only on one card and that is playing communal card in name of secularism. No self respecting , patriot individual can vote for this government unless he/she is emotionally motivated either by legacy of mahatma’s congress or by religion.
Unfortunately opposition parties lead by BJP doesnot give me enough faith either. Minning scams in karnataka, madhya pradesh shows capacity of BJP in corruption is not lesser than Congress. BJP in having political alliance with non other than shibu soren!!!!!!!!
Now no matter how much right wing guys love BJP , BJP needs to get its act right otherwise it gives feel too low confidence and I am sick of argument that BJP is less evil than congress…It can be said as truth considering how corrupted congress has always been since days of Indira Gandhi but dont give me choice of worse or bad…I need choice between worse and good!!!!!!!!!!
Unfortunately the system has become too corrupted and any party which comes to power would have to cleanse the system in big big way but to do that , elected party must have political will and must be ready to pay price and make hard decisions.
What we have currently in all political parties are politicians. What India needs is leader. I guess we should run a full page ad . Wanted : Leader For India!!!!!!!!!!
Would we see leader in future?…In that I am optimistic . We all are leaders in our way and when our collective consciousness would ignite , we might choose some one from us to be prime minister of India. It would happen , may be in 2014.
What a game…wow…what a chase..Slammed from all quarters Indian batting line up finally played to its true potential and won the last league match by seven wickets. More importantly India chased down the target of whopping 321 in mere 36.4 overs.
As match started Ravi Shashtri commented that India needed to restrict srilankans to 240-250 and chase the target down in 40 overs and then pray that aussies beat srilanka , so that India might get into final.
But as I saw score of 75/1 , I wondered how are we going to restrict them in 240 ..For me at that point of time it looked like sri lankans are going to put score of 280-290. I was wrong . Dilshan found this match to be the match where he would get into big score. He scored big hundred and remained not out at 160. Sangakara too made a century and srilanka went on to make 320…
Now chasing 320 down with kind of form which Indian batsman have shown in australia , it looked like impossible task and that too doing it under 40 overs. Sehwag , tendulkar began well and later on gautam gambhir continued the momentum. But day belonged to virat kohli who scored at brisk pace , making sure that we achieve target under 40 overs.
Batting at no 4 , virat hit two sixes and 16 fours and stayed not out at 133. Suresh raina too contributed with 40 not out in 24 balls. Virat made merry of dangerous malinga and hit 4 fours , 1 six and 1 two runs in single over!!!!!!!!!!!!!…Virat made winning runs against malinga showing his dominance today.
so what does point table say? :
So India are last in the list and would need australia to defeat srilankan handsomely to make it to best of three finals. Now even if India fails to make it to the final , they would end the disastrous tour of australia.
As for virat he has showed the he is man of future. With 9 oneday centuries and 20 half centuries in 82 matches he had played , virat also became fastest player to get 3000 runs for India in current tour of australia…
As for Indians , one day match between australia and srilanka would be one of most viewed match in recent months!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
