People prefer empowerment over patronage
Most of the political parties treat entire poor population in India as beggars and try their best to keep them in that state only for their vote-banks as they can be easily lured under false promises of development and jobs. But the recent verdict in the five assembly elections has proved that people have started to decipher the false promised of these corrupt politicians and quite obvious, given them a severe drubbing.

THERE IS a need for change and it has taken place, much to the shock of political analysts. In recent assembly elections, held in five states, results proved that electorate has preferred empowerment over patronage. They will vote for those who value, admire, and embrace this change with modesty not for pride, collectivism, dishonesty, and buzzing.

These elections corroborated a growing movement that hasty anti-incumbency is outdated. Performance can be rewarded as much as punished. Voters had shown a noteworthy ability for building fine peculiarity. Externally, these elections seem like old wine in new bottles: powerful agreement, equation of caste and community, candidates hint with corruption or criminality however, internally there is almost a social revolt in the creation.

“In every speech, Rahul Gandhi banked on history and his forceful me-myself-and-I as his campaign in UP failed enormously to influence voters. He should stop blaming others and learn to talk about development plans, day-to-day problems faced by common people etc.,” said Arunima Bhagat, a scientist at Indian Institute of Science Education and Research.

“BJP and Congress lack imagination. BJP wants stereotype Hindu majority and tries to divide votes merely on the basis of religion. It is good that both parties were eliminated in UP. At least they will realize their mistakes now,” added Gagan Chatwal, another scientist.

Most of political parties in India treat entire mass of Indians as beggars and are trying to keep them intact for their vote banks as they can be lured with false promises. People have demonstrated that need agenda, records of accomplishment and future of their families. They are not going to give any importance to who wins or loses .The national parties don’t have a national agenda, however they have become the transporters of a future dream. Their association bases are weak and political thoughts are fixed, obsolete.

“The anti-congress wave has got new lease of life in the assembly elections. The motive of every second party demonstrated that the congress should not govern at centre and neither in states at any cost,” concluded Reshma Malik, a student of political science in JNU.
