It was very thoughtfully quoted by Mr. Franklin D Roosevelt, “ In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.”
Politics in India since 2014 has changed its face and existence. After the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, India has witnessed a single party rule with BJP acquiring almost all states and at the same time crushing its opposition. BJP very silently worked for the economy and development of the country and won many hearts.
Even if they faced criticism for Demonetization or GST, people slowly realized its worth. Also, they realized that the world tours of the honorable Prime Minister were not just visits but a strong future building ideology.
Irrespective of all that was carelessly spoken by the other parties, they had their focus on India and its people.
To our surprise, a few days back the Karnataka elections took a drastic turn when the oath taking ceremony of the Congress Chief Minister saw BSP leader Mayawati all smiles and hugs with Sonia Gandhi. We also saw SP leader Akhilesh Yadav and Rahul Gandhi sharing moments. Well now that was something that were a bit shocking but also cleared the view that politics in India is basically Dirty Politics.
SP, BSP and Congress in the past few years have always blamed each other publicly. But just because Mr. Narendra Modi is coming up as the best One Man Army, the parties are losing their opportunities to earn money. Power and money that was once more important for the parties who were enemies, today share the stage to defeat a man who is probably doing better to the country.
If I look back to certain cases, there are many statements passed by these SP, BSP and Congress against each other. Before any explanations, let’s see what these statements are :
It was in January 2017, when Akhilesh Yadav remarked Mayawati by saying, “ How could we have given her so much space? She literally takes so much space. Even her party symbol is that of an elephant.”
Again in 2017, Akhilesh Yadav targeted BSP by calling it “Patthar Wali Sarkar” who did nothing but install stone memorials and parks.
In 2017, during an election rally in Unnao Akhilesh Yadav accused BSP as a party that cannot be trusted for it may join hands with BJP after elections. Mulayam Singh Yadav had clearly said, “Congress has ruined my political career. A case was filed against me during their rule. I will never support Congress.” Well today, his son is there shaking hands with the same party. In 2012, Mayawati targeted Rahul Gandhi and Congress for they didn’t utter
a word of condolence for BSP founder Kanshi Ram. How could she even expect a mourning day? Well, the rivalry was so clearly portrayed.
If we go in the past and check records, these three parties who shared the stage to defeat Mr. Narendra Modi were staunch enemies among themselves. They had always blamed and character assassinated each other. But then, this a reminder that politics is a bad vibes. For today, when the economy and foreign relations of India are improving, all these parties collaborate for the sake of power.
Isn’t this a clear sign that all they care about is power and heavy bank accounts and not the welfare of the country? For if they really cared, they could have appreciated the efforts of BJP. If not appreciate, they could have put up a respectable, healthy opposition. But here, all of them have put at stake their words and respect. When they can’t stick to their words now, how will they fulfill promises made to the people? The answer lies within you.
Either trust BJP and its long-term policies or trust these parties and experience long-term difficulties.
