People expectations with Economic slowdown, Youth job losses, uncertainty in placements, farmer suicides, gradual breakdown of Law & Order, specifically reported from UP – Political parties should have corrected course & put up far more competent & able, rather than ‘Criminals,’ as MP worthy candidates.
This is in fact the desire of Industry too, the real & only producers of Wealth BUT the Political class has turned a Deaf ear & openly gone ahead by giving tickets to criminal candidates. Result: Shoe throwing by persons who comprehend the situation.
All know & recognise today that parties of consequence are now like a club wherein Membership is restricted by coterie regulations & within the Party there is no inner party Democracy. Come & be a party to the loot is today the criteria & litmus test.
GenX, Youth, New Voters, Women as well as industry also know that our Rotten, decayed, corrupt Political system is not amiable nor willing to mend their ways. Also their Body language & expressions state:
ILLITERATE HAVE TO VOTE FOR US AS TRADITIONALLY WE ARM TWIST ALSO COMPEL THEM. WE GIVE FREEBIES ENOUGH TO KEEP THEM ENGAGED & WE WILL FIELD SONS & DAUGHTERS OF OUR STALWARTS. GOVERNANCE WILL BE AS IT SUITS US & TOO HOOTS TO THE CONSTITUTION, PARLIAMENT & INSTITUTIONS WHICH ARE NOW ALL SUB SERVIENT & AT OUR COMMAND.
The Political class also knows they have a clear Unfair Advantage having cornered Wealth, within the Country as well as kept in Tax Havens & by & large bureaucrats have become a Party to the loot & have no guts or desire to spill the beans.
Add to woes is the deteriorating situation in Pakistan now talibanised & terrorised.
Politicians world over are short sighted & India presently has no statesman.
Not agreeable to stomach & palate above the Bright boys meet at seminars, GenX has reacted by putting up candidates & we all know that Horse Trading will take shameful twists & turns once results are out under the new CEC.
Awakening to realities there will be Confrontation, as well as Course Corrections like never before – this is our assessment.
