Congress lost its pride-Rai Bareli And Amethi

 

Ayodhya shocked BJP after they lost it after 20 years to Samajwadi Party and similarly Rai Bareli and Amethi shocked Congress .Rai Bareli gave no result to Congress out of 5 seats in the constituency and Rahul’s Amethi managed 2 seats out of 5.

Rahul Gandhi takes the responsibility for Uttar Pradesh loss!

Days before the results were declared and on the basis of exit-polls , Congress performance when analysed as bad , senior leaders went ahead shielding Congress General Secretary, Rahul Gandhi, by considering themselves as responsible for the humiliating result that came into being today.Rita Bahuguna Joshi,the UP Congress Chief blamed the Candidates and defended for the loss and appreciated Rahul’s work.

Digvijay Singh and Salman Khurshid tried taking the responsibility in the media however, Rahul Gandhi has been courageous enough to accept that Congress has a lot to do in Uttar Pradesh to create an impact. He took the responsibility and declared results as a lesson to him as well. So Digvijay Singh and Salman Khurshid need not be showing any generosity by taking the congress loss on their shoulders. Rahul Gandhi also congratulated Mulayam Singh Yadav and son Akhilesh for their outstanding performance and assured he would continue to work for the welfare of the state.

Well, surely this is like a leader who takes the responsibility of loss not just the credit of win. Uttar Pradesh elections saw Rahul Gandhi as an aggressive campaigner trying to promote his party dead-hard and even after senior leaders trying to treat the prince of Gandhi kingdom like one and willing to take all failures on their name, Rahul Gandhi took the initiative to admit he was the one who should shoulder the defeat.   

Congress Disappointed with UP results

Who will make Government in UP ? Counting Begins!

Will it be SP+Congress ?

So far Mulayam Singh’s Samajwadi Party, guided by son Akhilesh Yadav is heading towards lead over all other parties. As expected Bahujan Samaj Party of Mayawati seems to be getting out of power and Samajwadi Party seems to be making the government. In the worst case with the association of Congress, as BJP has declared they would not support either the SP or the BSP. 202 out of 403 seats would be the number of Majority which any party or a group of parties would need to form a government. SP seems to be getting over 150 plus seats so far and it might have to deal with Congress to cover up the gap as BJP would not support them and BSP is the major opponent with which SP itself would not be joining hands.

By the end of the day a clear picture of who would be governing Uttar Pradesh would be clear including what can be the likely change that can happen in 2014 General Elections!

Who Will Win In Uttar Pradesh ?

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.

Uttar Pradesh Elections – Haunting Nights For Political Parties!

Haunting Dreams prior to Elections

Satish Chandra Mishra , the BSP(Bahujan Samaj Party) National General Secretary in his public speeches, has been heard, taunting at Rahul Gandhi that  BSP symbol ‘Elephant’ haunts Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in his dreams.

With the trending support for Samajwadi Partyin Uttar Pradesh, led by Mulayam Singh Yadav, it might not be wrong to think if SP symbol, ‘Cycle’ may be haunting  BSP supremo and Satish Mishra .

Uttar Pradesh has been witnessing series of non-stop rallies and public – meetings from all parties acussing opponents and praising their respective parties. It is the Uttar Pradesh public which would decide fate of the parties. Hopfully, they select the right political party as it would effect the fate of nation as well.

The Rahul Gandhi Vs Narendra Modi debate!

2014 Polls – Probable Candidates for the Post of Prime Minister of India:

It is anticipated that 2014 elections in India would be a choice of the nation between Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi from Congress and BJP respectively.

Congress does not have any better face than Rahul Gandhi, to offer and so is with major opponent party BJP where Narendra Modi is the only face popular enough to attract a change of thought among voters. Rahul Gandhi seems very promising and Narendra Modi has already set an example of his qualities, vision and spotless , true Chief Minister of Gujarat.

In the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, he retained his Amethi constituency and Congress is said to have brought back itself in Uttar Pradesh by winning 21 out of 80 Lok Sabha seats. The credit goes mostly to Rahul.

His Views

He has always condemned “divisive” politics in India, saying that he would reduce tensions prevailing due to caste and religious diversities in India.
Rahul Gandhi has always been critical towards nationalist group Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) comparing the organization with terrorist organizations like SIMI.
Wikileaks, in 2009, revealed he allegedly shared concerns with the American ambassador,Timothy Roemer that radicalized Hindu groups may become a bigger threat to India than Islamic terror groups.

Narendra Modi

Born  on 17 September 1950( Age – 61 plus)

Educational And Professional Background

Holds Masters degree in Political Science from Gujarat University.

As a teenager Narendra Modi used to run a tea stall with his brother.

He was chosen to be the Chief Minister of Gujarat after the removal of chief minister Keshubhai Patel in 2001.

Achievements.

He has a personal staff of just three people and is known to be a workaholic.

Since he held the Chief Minister’s post , development of Gujarat State accelerated its pace and his contribution is immense. Gujarat has been one of the most prosperous Indian state since he has become the Chief Minister. He is thoroughly credited for his efforts in tis regards.

After the 2002 Gujarat riots, forced by the allied parties, BJP asked Modi to resign.He submitted his resignation  and recommended the dissolution of Legislative Assembly and in the following state re-elections BJP  won 127 seats in the 182-member assembly and Modi was the Chief-Minister once again.

Narendra Modi Government won 122 out of 182 seats in 2007 elections.

Criticisms.

The 2002 , Gujarat Riots earned him blames of inaction over the riots and for encouraging them where almost 1200 people mostly Muslims died. The riots had taken place after 59 Hindus died when a Muslim mob burnt a train carrying hindu pilgrims.

He ordered the demolition of many Hindu temples that were built without proper government sanction and hence faced criticisms.

Views.

He is one of those leaders who believes in development and promotes business and industries with an open mind.

He supports revival Anti-Terror Legislations.

Gujarat is a no-alcohol state under his governance.

Overview

To sum it up, Narendra Modi with his ideologies, vision and work has set clear example of his capabilities. Gujarat is the proof. His decisions are firm and he has an uncorrupt picture, till date. However, his picture as a communal leader is a matter of concern for the muslim population of India.

On the other hand Rahul Gandhi is yet to prove things. He has mostly been seen as the cribbing child  complaining about the BSP government of Uttar Pradesh where he holds his seat.

It is a fact that even after being in the ruling party of the nation, Congress leaders are always occupied explaining and justifying and making promises. No humongous development has taken place since Congress came to power. On the contrary there has been price-hike be it petrol or food. Stands have not been clear on national security issues and issues related to Indian and Chinese borders and Chinese intrusions. Terror attacks are condemned and forgotten but no effective measures have been taken so far.

The UID card has been an utter failure which has been declared by one of the leaders of Congress itself. Hundreds of crores of money seem to be going down the drain if it is finally declared the UID card is inappropriate technically and incapable ID and Address proof for Indians.

In such scenario, it would be astonishing if Rahul Gandhi’s magic works for Congress. He may be the most eligible bachelor of India but how good would he be as a leader is yet unknown and there might be some people who might love to give him a chance and thereby support Congress in the 2014 elections.

BJP on the other hand cannot just bank upon Narendra Modi  and his Gujurat achievements to win 2014 elections. Acquisitions of being corrupt has been put on both Congress and BJP MLAs and leaders. Though Narendra Modi is clear of any monetary corruption issues , his image as a Hindu Leader and allegations of 2002 Gujurat riots will surely distract the muslim population and the population considering him communal.

Both Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi are visionary leaders and very impressive speakers but while Narendra Modi has already shown his worth on state – level, Rahul Gandhi has yet and a lot to do. Well the communal picture of BJP and Modi is the major disadvantage of Narendra Modi which may work for Congress and Rahul Gandhi’s benefit.

Now it would be the results of 2014 elections which would clear out whether the nation is willing to experiment with yet another young Gandhi or they would prefer Modi who has been a true leader in terms of development but has failed miserably as a leader of all but the muslims of India.
