Things to keep in mind before 2019 elections
Well Garnished promises:
India saw a fascinating demonstration of brand politics in the name of Narendra Modi where he was projected as the sole driver of the entire BJP. At the very same time, he emphasized highly on the flaws of the UPA regime and demonstrated a highly contrasted yet beautified pack of promises i.e. the manifesto.
It featured promises like creating one crore jobs which he failed, the pet project and the poll campaign’s main promise due to which Modi won his constituency (Varanasi), the Ganga clean up, but again failed to fulfill it, another most publicised promise and unfulfilled promise was of depositing 15 lakh in every honest taxpayer’s bank account after bringing back the black money. Apart from these the Narendra Modi led BJP tempted the no tolerance policy towards terrorism and wooed the countrymen by advertising on how The UPA government failed to tackle these issues, on the other hand deliberately rated the Gujrat model of development as the best. The entire campaign loomed around on India following the Gujrat model and its development policies for better fortunes. To everyone’s surprise, the BJP manifesto had everything for everyone, and the gloomy promises made the icing on the cake which awarded BJP a clear-cut victory in the General elections 2014.
Double Standards of ruling government:
Since then the Modi is busy in marking footprints on the foreign soil and left behind the internal matters of the own state. All most every state in India had something to do with the prime minister’s vision but only on papers and nothing to the practicality. The Jat reservation stir in Haryana, the Farmer’s agitations across the country, the bunch of rape cases across UP, MP, Inflation, mob-lynching, floods, remained unheard and unanswered by the BJP government and moreover is making life miserable of the fellow countrymen. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made big promises in terms of economy but has failed to deliver those promises, his Hindu nationalist views can weaken India’s secular character and hurt the economy in turn. The Narendra Modi-led government seems to have bitten off more than they can chew, as it is struggling to keep its prominent poll promises.
Eventually, the Paartidar Protest in Gujrat itself exposed the double standards of the central leadership. Then the Mob lynching series throughout the country shooked everyone’s mind as to how secular the government’s policies are. It is not only the flaws we are talking about but apart from a very few attempts of bringing India the MODIfied visionary projects the government and the heroes of 2014 have been extremely busy in putting dirt on their own rotten cake.
Insight for 2019 elections:
After all these 4 years what we have is a very little to discuss but concerns are more to be answered and tackled as once again the country is going closer towards the General elections in 2019. And the most significant question which raises the alarm is that still the voting parameters are decided by the politicians here in India and not by the common man who votes, thereby there is a case of open influence of voters by the politicians on 100s of issues. Thus, the voting behavior needs to be modified and the voters need to be more aware of their own benefits and rights. To conclude in one line all I propose is that if you vote for caste you will get casteism, vote for the community you get communism therefore once you vote for development and you will get development, elsewhere you won’t find any ladder to step on for development.
