2014 we would be having the general elections of the world’s largest democracy. This election in my perspective is one of the most important one in India’s development history. I personally want to see if the FB generation(which I’m a part off) “Checks-in” in a voting booth and takes pride in it. Rather than liking some movement online which is against/for some cause and feels contended.
The reason why I feel this is one of the most important election is because, in the past few years we have seen scam after scam, shame after shame being proven in the court of the land. We feel the problem is with the leader who does not TALK much and afraid of facing the people and also of the ballot box. And a prospective PM candidate of the same party who many of still think he is immature for this role and also has not proved anything national in his path for taking the resposnbility.
People are getting restless. We want a CHANGE. Okay, now what change do we want? As we always do, support the other biggest national political party, BJP. This party has a man as its prospective candidate who has Development as his main goal in his tenure as the Head of the State of GUJARAT. Wow, in Ravi Shastri’s words ’ this is what the doctor ordered for India’. Now, lets all join and make this heard all over the country. Lets raise the voice for him and make everyone aware that there is no better option than him.
So, is it going to be easy for him? Does he and his party just needs to the ‘right thing’ by campaigning for development and against a party which has made that word an archaic? NO, yes you read it correctly ,it is not easy for him to govern and be the leader of the world’s biggest democracy. He has a big hurdle in his own alliance partner from Bihar. Nitish-ji has a problem with Modi-ji. He thinks Modi-ji is very communal to lead the country. Hmm, people especially in the political clan are Grand-masters in moving the communal/caste coin. But, people might have forgotten or might think the Gujarat riots may be a trivial issue to hold against Modi-ji. But, the families of those who were affected can not forget in their lifetime. I suppose Nitish-ji thinks with the development and turn around that he has done with a state like Bihar. He thinks, he too is ready for THE POST.
But, People!, don’t we think we are missing a point a here? Do we want A person to RULE the country or a Government to govern us? My biggest fear is not which political party comes to power? Its Who and How. I personally think we should still VOTE for the Person we ACTUALLY VOTE for. Isn’t this basics of democracy, elect our representative. We do not follow the american democracy where its basically between 2 people and their ideas to govern the nation. Now, I’m asked a question for which i truly do not have an answer, “If not Modi? Name a leader”
What Indian needs now is a Leader who can lead a government and not a leader who can run a government. The later, I’m very cynical and also fear it. We need a political party which is democratic and also has a stable leadership within themselves. We need a political alliance which understands how to work as a team. We need a Leader who has Development as his main goal and a administration which can take forward few good things this government has done. Lastly, We need a society that is politically aware and non-ignorant.
These above lines are only my views and opinions. As any other responsible citizen of this nation, have expressed my views and thoughts. I’m always open for discussions. As i believe more we talk, more we are aware.
