During the elections I thought this party will understand our grievances and solve all the problems. This party will raise its voice in assembly and parliament against corruption, inflation, unemployment, safety, security, development and all other burning issues related to common people. But what happened... two arch rivals are taking lunch together in the name of national interest, secularism, etc. I want to know from these leaders that during election campaign why you use war of words against each other?
In the recent Uttar Pradesh assembly election, I saw one event when congress leaders beat a SP supporter at a helipad. In one incident Rahul Gandhi was accusing previous state governments for non development work in the state. He was wiping tears of poor people and took lunch or dinner at their home. Akhilesh Yadav and Mulayam Singh Yadav were accusing BSP government and central government. In a later incident West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee opposed candidature of Pranab Mukherjee for the Presidential election inspite of Pranab Da having rich experience in politics, with his image being very good among common Indians, and he belongs to her state. Just before the election her mind changed and she asked her MPs and MLAs to vote for Pranab Da. There are so many similar incidents in Indian politics.
I am unable to understand if one is in BJP, then he is secular and if he joins other party, then he is not secular. How is it possible? I have never encountered people in real life who like politicians change their mindset in a minute or a day. I can bet, today if L K Advani joins Congress, then there would be no place for secularism in him or if Sonia Gandhi joins BJP, then she would not be more opposed for being a foreigner. In our country a political party is secular or nationalist, not a leader.
Is this the face of politics? I want to know whom I should vote for - a person or a party? If I vote for a party, then I'm being cheated, if I vote for a candidate, then I'm being cheated. There is no option and I shouldn't cast my so-called valuable votes. After election our elected honorable MPs, MLAs or other constituent members will play with the emotions of our vote - ever and forever, then what is the value of exercising of voting rights?
