Delhi Elections 2015- Voters’ astuteness much-needed

If blaming could serve all purposes, we would not need defence forces and borders. If complaints had the caliber to make good the evils, then with every one of us as a mere complainant, with no one to actually work and bring in the change, the world had been a better place. Delhi elections are the talk of the town, primetime news channel debates are all revolving around this much-hyped event that would reportedly lay a new stone in the history of Delhi on the 7th of this month. The movement, India Against Corruption, has immense contribution in the present political conditions in the state. Two of the most notable leaders, representing rival political groups, hail from IAC; have different ideologies and have presented separate agenda on how they would reform Delhi once they assume power as state’s Chief Minister. If only agendas and words had the knack to improve the living conditions of impoverished households and unemployed youth, I am sure that none of the candidates have ever lost in any elections. You would agree that in actuality we want and deserve rulers who can take wise decisions, can execute apt plans within time, and can bring positive changes in our lives; but overruled by our crave for pity perks and sometimes by false assurances of candidates, we end up voting for a person who we then think of replacing all during the next 5 years for being ruled.

Delhi voters, you have good number of choices, but every of that may not be good. You also have two chief ministerial contenders, one having served the revenues department and the other from the police administrative wing. Let us also not absolutely rule out Congress, which has been at the very bottom since past couple of years in the Indian political setup. But as far as the pulse of voters seems and opinion polls predict, two parties appear as fighting a neck to neck battle for majority in the legislative assembly. Sayings of the heads of both these parties have been more or less similar; however difference lies in past deliveries and the competence to stand tough during adverse circumstances. No, I would not ask you to vote foreither the BJP or the AAP, but yes I would measure them on few scales to boil down to a result as to which group should, in my opinion, be backed by the voters. The last CM of the state, who could bear the immense and undeniable pressure of administrating the state for just 49 days, is yet again seeking for votes sometimes on corruption grounds, sometimes on development, and many a time on emotional grounds. Dear AAP chief, no one will deny your urge of cleaning politics by ruling out corruption and crony capitalism; but is mere assurance ample? Yours spirits were high and words had all that weightwhen you asked for a Jan Lokpal Bill, even the general public stood by your side, but were you at all able to abide to all those ideals when given a revolutionary chance by Delhi voters in last elections?

For the Congress, this is time to assess your past deliveries and failures, not to retaliate the labors of the central government even when your inner conscience knows that they are in the favor of the nation. To be a responsible opposition in the Parliament, it takes courage to admit your failure, honesty to support goods of the ruling party and acumen to challenge the wrongs. Delhi polls are not yet another chance for you to grab votes of the pubic, and if at all it is, you will have to substantiate the support of voters by being unbiased and shrewd during ruling. The BJP though has proven a lot during these eight months of administration at the center, but the goal of sustainable and inclusive growth isn’t yet completely accomplished. Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s art of winning the opposition and Mahatma Gandhi’s dedication to attain decisivesovereignty are what that time demands, although the public is assured of economic and social pluses; also are the voters of Delhi optimistic about the candidature of your projected CM, the lady holds all those skills of administration and delivery even when the waves aren’t supportive. On the other hand, AAP hasguaranteed every of the bit that has been a part of election manifestos since past seven decades; however the general public asks as to how with limited resources would you manage to make Delhi a free Wi-Fi zone, reduce power and water bills and provide loans at low interest rates. Hailing from the IAC movement, you seem to have disremembered that public backs truth and decency, not promises.

Delhi elections may be termed as the ‘Agni-Pariksha’ of Arvind Kejriwal, Kiran Bedi, and even the country’s present Prime Minister; in actuality, they are the ray of optimism and change for the people of Delhi, who sometime feel backstabbed by the AAP in 2014 and sometime feel assured with the way India is currently being administered by the BJP at the center. Remember, it is all about how we prudently assess the past deliveries and future intents of our candidates. The IAC movement was not the same as the upcoming elections, and the people of Delhi will have to keep this in mind while pressing that button on the EVM. Along with electing a political party, distinct constituencies elect their representatives as MLAs;hence they are to be individually evaluated by the locals. Equally important is to give a clear verdict, majority being a pre-requisite to rule appositely, competently and unbiasedly. As a piece of advice to Delhi voters, this is the time that you vigilantly take informed decisions, interpreting the fact that a new political party, with loud and untested men, has an inherent nature to move in an altogether opposite direction. This is an easy way to lure the public by projecting that you are not like the current rulers, but is also the most suicidal way to fall into the grip of inflation, recession and debt. Shifting money from the pocket of one tax-payer to the other is nothing more than conning, hence would serve no purpose, the need is to apply brains while undertaking what we call ‘good governance’ and ‘all-inclusive development’.

The BJP has played better in all terms, be it the inclusion of Kiran Bedi, a former IPS with proven track record, the floating of a realistic vision document or respecting talent within the party. Regrettably, AAP has relied on that offensive and emotional support which they believe would come from the Auto drivers, Muslim community and the poor. No member, however, from any of these groups would back a party that defames other political and corporate men, and is unwilling to take apt actions when corruption and severe misuse of power and funds are sensed within their own party. I am sorry AAP members, your self-attained tag of honesty, even if we believe it to be true, does not make you eligible to administer a state, an act that demands sheer competence and vision. Limits have all been surpassed with you challenging the authenticity of EVMs, thus libeling the Election Commission, a statutory body that leaves no stone unturned in assuring spotless voting process. Such rumors only expose your anti-national plans and stands. My urge to the voters of Delhi is to evaluate deliveries of contending parties and not just words, come out in large numbers during the voting day and prove that Delhi, being the heart of India, will be administered by leaders of acumen for the next five years, working in sync with the central government to bring in actual development. Also, when we realize that BJP’s deliveries and hard work has to be promoted, not only by their dedicated workers but also by the common public, let us then unite in favor of this political party, a culture that finds place in many developed countries.

“We don’t have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change. Small acts when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.” – Howard Zinn

The call, as I believe, is very evident. The epicenter of India and also a target for many terrorist and even separatist organizations, Delhi, can never be made vulnerable to anti-India forces, possible only if the people are ready to back a stable, intelligent and active government. In this regard, the AAP loses its reliability due to scarcity of tested leaders (a basic necessity for governance), wide gap between their commitments and doings, and their intent to back communalism and separatist ideology just for the want of support. Moreover, national security and unity of the people of Delhi cannot be left to the rule of a group that has proven severely immature and unskilled. Rather, leaders of this group, if they have the real desire to serve the nation, must evaluate as to what is lacking in them, despite of asking for votes on baseless grounds, many a time anti-national and anti-growth. Dear Arvind, you may be an honest and nice person, but it is time that you also prepare leader/s of your party to be capable of serving in your absence; politics and governance are tough jobs, emotions have no place, you come to deliver, that’s why public backs you. BJP comes out to be a clear winner in this contest with years of know-how and with a proven Chief Ministerial candidate. They will sync well with the present central government and the current positives will flow high to the state of Delhi.

    Finally we have something that I want everyone to go through and realize the true face of AK.
    Speaking and performing are different things friends and voters of Delhi should realize this.
    All hype of Arvind is from the media not from the ground.

    Why did you not mention about unreal opinion polls in your article.
    Let us wait and watch the results on 10th Feb and then media channels should apologize
    for the kind of surveys they give.
    Journalism in India has now very low standards, they are a joke.

    Narendra Modi is a national leader and he is doing good there no one is refusing.
    But Delhi is a separate state and what is wrong if Arvind Kejriwal is given one more chance to prove?
    If we will hope for BJP everywhere I think they will become ineffective.

    This isnt an article, this is a campaign for BJP in Delhi.
    How smartly you say that AAP has no capability citing worng examples.
    What about black money that your Modiji promised?
    What about less rates of vegetables?

    BJP is better than AAP in all terms. AAP is again like Congress, SP and BSP.
    They are relying on votes from particular clusters, which is why they are a danger for Delhi’s unity.
    Even Autowalas should not vote for AAP. I appeal everyone to vote for Bedi Ji.

    In this war of parties, where are candidates from different constituencies?
    Is only the name of political party enough to win the elections?
    No one is talking about ability of candidates.
    This is downfall of political wing of India and should be stopped.

You definitely understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people really need to read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular since you most certainly possess the gift.

    Sir you should advise people to give their votes to people who deserve their votes,
    not in the name of Modi, Bedi or Kejriwal.
    Vote is a power of common man and it should be used wisely,
    these politicians will forever fool us, we have to think twice.

    I warned people when AAP was formed that real intentions of
    Arvind Kejriwal is to come in politics and not social welfare.
    Opinion polls in lok sabha elections also gave AAP many seats but they fell on ground.
    This time also the outcome will be same.

    My vote is to AAP whatever you say. At least for 49 days Arvindji worked with honesty.
    He is very emotional this is right that is why people easily fool him,
    but this time he has learned politics. 5 saal Kejriwal.
    He will make Delhi heaven on earth. No corruption.

    In my view, BJP is in a better stand with Kiran Bedi as their CM candidate.
    Her past performances are known to public.
    AAP wants support only to again take Delhi in the grip of failure.
    Kiran Bedi should win because she is deserving and very intelligent.

    This article is balanced and voters should read this carefully before the day of voting. We should judge AAP and BJP on their delivery not their promises. India has seen very good days after NDA has formed government. Now Delhi needs this kind of governance.
