It is tough to believe that our nation is run by goon turned political leaders, so much in number and yet we expect corruption to be abolished from the society. These informations should be made public in all constituencies prior to elections , probably only then we would be able to elect the right candidate to represent us as the leader!
38-year-old, Akhilesh Yadav has been declared as the Chief Minister for Uttar Pradesh by Samajwadi Party. He would also be the youngest Chief-Minister of the State. Any guesses, why father Mulayam Singh Yadav , the much-anticipated candidate of the party opted out and allowed son Akhilesh to take charge ?

BJP, Congress and Media to be blamed for BSP defeat in Uttar Pradesh ?
Kumari Mayawati, now the former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh , in her Press Conference , after resignation declared her defeat BJP and Congress as major reason of her party’s defeat as they helped polarisation of Muslim Vote Bank, as per her, which benefited the Samajwadi Party. Also she expressed that the Muslim voters were scared that BJP may gain power in the state hence they supported SP.
Well, BJP has been an under-dog in Uttar Pradesh and this is no hidden fact from the nation , forget about the state. The most shocking part has been that rather than blaming her own governance where scams got exposed and corrupt ministers were getting caught and to top it key people getting murdered while the enquiry kept deepening, she held other parties responsible for her defeat. The useless expense of multi-crores on Park and Statues seemed all right to her, guess ! As if people do not count on them. She also praised her government’s work comparing the condition in which BSP had taken charge of administration in 2007 and also assured media that soon people of the state would be fed up with SP which over-threw them with a massive majority win. She did not stop there and also calmly blamed the Media for hyping issues in favour of BJP and Congress and warned the media that soon voters would feel cheated by media for reporting in favour of Congress and BJP. She did not blame herself for stopping to held Janata Darbars which she used to during the initial days.She did not blame herself for not even meeting the officers in te administration for months.
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. Since the time Indira Gandhi , these two constituencies have been pride of Congress and SP thunder blew the hat of pride away!
Congress lost Amethi and Rai Bareli-its pride since Indira Gandhi days
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
