Mohan Bhagwat ,chief of Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh(RSS), has declared Bihar over Gujarat in effective governance of states of India,as per some foreign journalists. While RSS has clarified that his statement has been incorrectly quoted and what he meant was people of each state consider their governance superior.RSS which is the mother of BJP , ranking BJP ruled state below other party ruled state is astonishing.
Should this be considered a slip-of-tongue or an intentional slip to keep BJP ally JD(U) in confidence? Nitish Kumar, the chief minister of Bihar , has threatened to quit alliance with BJP , in case, they announce Modi, chief minister of Gujarat,as their Prime Ministerial Candidate for 2014 General elections! There is no denying that people who favour NDA’s rule for 2014 would be supporting it only if Narendra Modi is the PM candidate and Nitish Kumar is yet to develop his strong repute nationwide !
Keshubhai , the former Chief Minister of Gujarat and arch rival of Modi was being threatened by the BJP headquarters to stop commenting against Narenndra Modi , time and again . However, shocking the BJP and the nation, Keshubhai Patel has decided to take his fight against Modi to the next level by not only leaving BJP but also deciding to form a new political party in Gujarat,ahead of polls !
Yeddyurappa has praised Pranab Mukherjee considering him best suited for the President’s post and also requested his own party supported candidate, P A Sangma to accept defeat and avoid going to Supreme Court to appeal against Pranab Mukherjee.Interestingly, BJP has been left red-faced after there has been cross-voting from Karnataka in favour of Pranab ! Is this Yeddyurappa’s way of showing discontentment towards his own party ? By the way, Who may be the cross voters ? 😉
Anticipations of SP winning with majority and probable alliance opportunities amongst the Big Parties to form government has been flooding news channels and sites. It is a noticeable fact that all the major parties have been blaming each other for something or the other , in their respective speeches during campaigning. Now it would be noteworthy if parties join hands to form government, as clear win for any party seems still doubtful, so far! Well, no matter whosoever wins , all the major parties including Congress,BJP,SP and BSP have got opportunities in the past and none left the opportunities to dishearten the state.
Votes in Uttar Pradesh are still divided on the basis of caste and religion and regardless the leaders be corrupt or inefficient they convince their voters either by blaming Central Government or by declaring corruption charges as conspiracy against them. It is not even the fault of voters,most of whom live in rural areas and are below or at par with poverty line. Literacy percent is still low and exposure to the outer world is very limited. In Uttar Pradesh, the major agenda should be development of the under-grown state and even the voters should think of benefits of the State as a whole and not just a community.
