With the beginning of counting of votes in India,the verdict of the nation for the 2014 General Elections is getting clearer with every passing by minute. A record win for BJP and BJP led NDA and a beyond shameful loss for Congress.
Looks like it is a straight forward statement to the Congress and Rahul Gandhi and ‘the self-proclaimed Anti-Corruption Messiah of AAP’ Arvind Kejriwal from the nation. Be it Congress or the AAP,both were publicly denying the Modi wave and they were so right..they knew what people are terming as wave is a Tsunami for other political parties. :)
For those who may not be aware of Kabaddi,it is one of the ethnic and old games played in India and neighbouring countries, the name of which originates from Tamil word- ‘ Kai-pidi’ meaning ‘Hold Hands’ .
The 2014 General Elections,in a nutshell,is Modi vs All.From small state level parties to big national level , all seem to be stopping this one man from being the Prime Minister of India 2014. Few are also from within his team. Others are maintaining silence to see the results before reacting and taking decisions.
After all, there are many silent contenders who wish to get the top job,few are known to all and few are waiting for the right opportunity. Almost all the parties are playing to stop Modi , be it newly formed AAP or formed since pre-Independence, Congress.
Regardless of the results of 2014 General Elections,Modi has surely emerged as the only extraordinary Indian politician for who citizens of the nation seem to have divided into two groups – Pro-Modi and Anti-Modi.
Addressing one of his rallies,Modi attacked Arvind Kejriwal directly by calling him a Pakistani Agent. He said India had three AK’s emerging as Pakistani commanders on Indian side – First,AK47 which was used by Pakistan to bleed India.Second,AK Antony,the Union Defence Minister,who had stated in the Parliament that people who beheaded Indian soldiers were wearing the dress of Pakistan army, while army said Pakistanis had come.Last July,Pakistani army had intruded in the Indian side and beheaded two Indian soldiers. The third,Modi mentioned,was AK49 which has launched a new party recently. This was a mock at Arvind Kejriwal’s 49 day old govt in Delhi.
AAP has emerged as a strong vote-cutter for BJP in 2014 which was quite visible in Delhi polls where BJP could not make its Govt despite Congress losing real bad.
While Finance Minister’s claims cannot be questioned as he mostly has his figures right and it is normally that India grows better on govt papers only. However,he might have skipped to mention the significant growth in the fields of Corruption and Inflation in UPA’s regime,so far,has been felt by every Indian.
With the arrival of 2014 accompanying AAP govt in the national capital,the battle of 2014 General Elections is becoming intense and the results are looking unpredictable,yet again. In between, it seemed,BJP led by Narendra Modi with the mantra of -DEVELOPMENT would make it to the power.If not a clean sweep by BJP, surely, the NDA , as a whole, may have formed its Govt in Centre.But,to the astonishment of many political analysts ,major political parties and the common man, Aam Aadmi Party, led by Arvind Kejriwal did immensely well in the Delhi Polls and although they managed 28 seats out of 70,they ended up making their govt in Delhi with the support of Congress. BJP chose to be in the opposition with 31 seats.
However, the results in Delhi gave AAP the confidence to think national. They have chosen 10 states and are aiming 100 seats for the upcoming General Elections. Now,the present scenario assures that those who are fed up of both the BJP and Congress but chose BJP over Congress, may opt for AAP . Moreover,AAP has managed to wake up those sections of voters who considered voting a waste of time.Those who prefer keeping themselves away from politics,all in all,as they felt their votes would hardly make a difference to clean the corrupt politics of India.
Looks like the Pied Piper playing the flute of ‘development in Gujarat’ will have to compete with another Pied Piper playing the flute of ‘Commoners fight against Corruption by Indian politicians’. By the way,what is Rahul Gandhi planning for 2014 GE ? :D
