After every five years, the power shifts from one hand to another but the politics style and strategies almost remains the same. Perhaps the poem by Faiz Ahmed Faiz looks to be befitting in view of not getting the majority in Delhi by Kejriwal - 'Intzaar tha jis ka, yeh woh sehar to nahi' - This is not that morning for which we were waiting. The new morning of politics might come late but the results of four states have definitely sparked the light of hope, of which the vista could be seen in the capital of India, Delhi.
Just one year old Aam Aadmi Party is adding new feathers to its cap. AAP led by Arvind Kejriwal, is an indication of challenge against all the major political parties in India to introspect and provide clean, qualitative administration.
AAP has brought the politics at the cross-roads out of its recognition as traditional politics. The matured voters of India are favouring those who they feel will bring development. In MP, Shivraj Singh Chuahan, a politician with clean image – BJP is in power for the third time and this achievement is not less than anybody else, even AAP party. This has happened so because he has assured development of weak states including MP. Similar is the position in Chattisgarh.
It will not be wrong to see the assembly elections as semi-final for coming Lok Sabha elections but while thinking so, the parties should not forget the faces of leaders breaking traditions in politics, who are subject to acceptance by voters and must try to maintain their image keeping themselves away from scams and taking care of the common man while formulating policies.
