The one thing for which India is famous about is its political culture. It is that one thing which keeps everyone bonded in terms of happenings, opinions and the made-up news. The recent series of exposures made by Arvind Kejriwal from the India Against Corruption team (Yes, he finally joined politics forming his own party and departed ways with the Gandhian Anna Hazare) on different politicians has pervaded the stream of wave among the commons in India. Congress, which has formed UPA government (United Progressive Alliance), a coalition government infused with several political parties in India like BSP( Bahujan Samajwadi Party), SP( Samajwadi Party- who’s ruling Uttar Pradesh, largest state in India with highest number of parliamentary seats), NCP( Led by Sharad Pawar), Trinamool Congress (Now out congress over FDI in Retail and Diesel Price hike, originally from ) etc has been in doldrums since early 2009. The political instability lies in the formation of this coherent, co-operative and co-stupid government which is deep-rooted with corruption and ignorance.
The coalition government has always divided the country by the political parties and there is no mutual decision-making in any of the issues faced inside or outside the country. This issue is the issue of division among the masses of the country, who eventually end up suffering. I don’t want to sound like Arundhati Roy here, but the country needs an elected representative from its capitalist regime, who just doesn’t see profits of his/her state or company but also see profits for the masses. And only a capitalist can understand this. The economy of the country lies in the hands of the capitalists and as they say the global economy is a capitalist economy. One such example is of Gujarat’s Chief Minister Narendra Modi from the Opposition Party ( BJP- Bhartiya Janta Party) who is serving as Chief Minister of Gujarat consecutively for the second time, and recently TIME Magazine covered him stating ‘Modi Means Business’ from the good he has done to Gujarat State in terms of business, trade and law. We need people like him at the center, if not him if we still hold the grudges of the past.
The country needs unidirectional people with a single focus of doing good to the country and not just doing good to their house. For that, everything matters. The single vote will matter. So, all those who have been thinking not to vote must stand up, renew their voting cards and vote in the upcoming elections whenever they be either Midterm polls or 2014. Then, we will be called the true citizens of the country, despite anything, for the love of god.
I am going to vote for the first time which will embark my start to all the next times.
You play the game in the game of throne. And let your voice count.
