Political Play
CA Dr Sunil Gupta
General Elections 2014 connote just one personality 'Narendra Modi' 25 April, 2014
Either you are with him or you are against him. And when you are against him, you are not sure of being with whom. It was stunning to watch the gigantic crowd that matched every step with the prime ministerial candidate of the BJP prior to his filing the nomination from the holy city of Banaras. And the enthusiasm- you can recall that if you watched the news headlines on 24th April 2014.
Such massive support can neither be bought nor could it be gathered by selling unrealistic dreams. Packed roads, people filled with delight, and a truly ordinary, however talented person was the center of attraction. And what for? Definitely, to bring in those changes that we have been looking forward to since past many decades. Those changes which we have been promised at numerous times however have never been delivered.

Nobody could have ever thought of such a political milieu when a person with nil political family background would be the only talked about subject matter. The BJP, which has rested on the shoulders of this skilled leader to fetch the requisite numbers, has surely outshined every other political party, national or regional.

And the others, they have disremembered development, education, poverty, unemployment, and corruption. They are just warning people to stop this person from being the controller of the state alleging that his stepping in would be destructive. A CM of a small state, with limited resources to realize his political ambitions has proven the fact that actual and honest deliveries are awarded and cheered too.

What do you expect from your leader? Definite plan of action with feasible visionary capabilities? He has it. One who can stand tough in adverse circumstances rather than resorting to walkout? He owns that attitude. Someone who possesses global recognition to make a sturdy impact? Yes, he has that. Proven track record with key successes? Modi owns that too. One who can make people listen, make opponents realize, and make the society prosper? He has demonstrated this in Gujarat and can be expected to do the same nationwide.

Can we afford a leader with unproven track record, or one who carries the last name of past influential politicians? The state calls for instant and deep-rooted reforms that in turn call for hands that have experienced the heat of fire and brain that has dealt with such state of affairs. The ultimate decision-maker is the general public. Post viewing the deliveries of many political leaders, who promised economic betterment of some however could not deliver for anyone, trusting them is absurdity.

Threatening communities with the deceptive after-effects of Modi’s win is what almost every other political group has resorted to for fetching support. In none of his speeches could we hear any motivation to any particular caste/ religion to vote in favour. He talks about tomorrow with structured game plan and prosperity of all beyond discrimination in the name of religion/ status. Surely, this politician is capable of something that makes every other politician think of stopping him.

Voters, who have the power to elect the administrator, too have the authority to pull down those who fail to deliver. Hence, politicians rather than befooling must realize the real supremacy of voters who in turn must deliver prudent and knowledgeable verdict.
