Political Play
CA Dr Sunil Gupta
Is the UP Government moving on a correct route? 30 May, 2014
Even the SP would not have anticipated such a win in the assembly elections of 2012. Nor would had the government expected such a loss in the general polls of 2014. What went wrong in these two years has already been discussed many a times.
Law and order, business growth aspects, work prospects for youth, women security, and power, the unpardonable condition of these domains was the key limiting factor for the party in the general elections. Above all, the young and dynamic Chief Minister of the state has been unable to match steps with the expectations of the general public that have now multiplied.

And, what has happened post the outcome of the general polls is even more disturbing. Extensive power cuts in all the regions of the state, except where the party could fetch the requisite votes, have added to the misery of the general public. Would such an act serve any productive purpose for the party in the upcoming days? I doubt, never.

The mindset of the mass has reformed, and the crowd now places prosperity above community/ religion and personal payback schemes. Remember, development was the key factor in the general polls that assisted the BJP to come up with such an extraordinary win in the U.P.

The recent incident of Badaun has augmented the fire. And the state government, like always, seems to be unaffected. A time when females are secured enough to commute even during late night hours in the cities of Mumbai and Bangalore, the constituencies of U.P. are unsafe even during the day time.

The society has taken a step ahead towards women empowerment and security; however the state of U.P. seems to have been left behind. Shall we not comprehend this as the most terrifying state of affairs, wherein teenage girls are bound to stay at homes, even when the police force is bestowed upon with the accountability of law and order?

Post the outcomes of the general polls, it was anticipated that the SP would restructure the milieu from top to the bottom. Democracy adds to the glory of a nation, wherein the public has the power to discard the representatives who fail to deliver. With a clear note, from the public to the state government, evidencing the powerlessness of the leaders in delivering what was promised, the SP should had come up with something distinct and constructive. On the contrary, the government has taken an altogether abrupt route that leads to even more distress. I doubt whether the SP has reconsidered its functional approach or not.

Nothing seems to be at the precise place. Either the administrators are too unwise to comprehend the needs of the general public, or the execution of plans is wrong. I must say that the young CM of the state, backed up with his academic credentials, and wide know-how of the political arena, appears helpless in executing the corrective plan of action. Excessive decentralization of power, inapt law and order state, lack of opportunities, and biasness has to be curbed sooner than later. Let us expect that the CM would soon comprehend the nerve of the mass and will come up with real and workable solutions.
