Filmstars, Sportspersons & Politics- An eccentric association

The Human Resource department of any organization lays down certain criteria for selection of candidates. Of all the parameters experience and domain knowledge hold extreme weightage. The rule, however, does not seem to apply when we talk about the most vital staffing in the economy- the recruitment of MPs and MLAs. Filmstars and sportsmen are being fielded despite of the fact that they do not possess relevant experience of administration and the requisite know-how for running an economy. Unusual and unjustifiable this is.

Why at all political parties rely on celebrities to fetch support from the general public? Does this add glamor and thrill to the process of campaigning and conveying thoughts? I could comprehend why our television screens are flooded with advertisements wherein filmstars and sports personalities endorse a product/ service. Definitely, they are appealing and motivate the viewer to purchase. However, politics and governance of the nation are distinct grounds. Let’s discuss in brief about the candidates fielded in the upcoming polls that come from the entertainment industry, and the role that the general public plays in encouraging such involvements.

The list is lengthy and embraces filmstars ranging from first-timers to former MPs and MLAs. The Congress has fielded Nagma from Meerut, Raj Babbar from Ghaziabad, and Ravi Kishan from Jaunpur. This suddenly reminds me of the recent incidence wherein Nagma slapped a person in public, however such issues can be talked about later. The BJP has also bestowed upon the responsibility of fetching votes on the shoulders of numerous filmstars. The array includes much-experienced and sometimes rebellious Shatrughan Sinha from Patna Sahib, the controversial entrant Paresh Rawal from Ahmedabad East, Babul Suprio from Asansol, Joy Banerjee from Birbhum, Bappi Lahiri from Sreerampore, and Hema Malini from Mathura.

The so-called revolutionary party, AAP that advocated the selection of candidates on the basis of merits has fielded Gul Panag from Chandigarh. TMC has too relied on celebrities including Moon Moon Sen, Sandhya Sen, Superstar Dev, and Biswajit. Sportsmen are no way behind. While Rajyawardhan Singh Rathore, Mohd. Kaif and Dilip Tirkey would represent BJP, Congress and BJD respectively; Prarun Banerjee and Bhaichung Bhutia would represent TMC.  Let’s also wait and watch what magic does P C Sorcar brings in from Barasat constituency. Though the array includes many others, I would restrict this and would now come to a relevant conclusion.

It is considerable to note in the same context that Tamil Nadu has been administered by personalities belonging to the entertainment industry since the late 1960s. Jayalalitha has many a times proven her capabilities to rule and gather requisite support. Though any citizen can participate and contest elections, the will to bring in prosperity should be inseparable. The voters on the other hand must comprehensively weigh the candidature prior to concluding.

The winning of Amitabh Bachchan over H.N. Bahuguna, former CM of U.P. by one of the highest victory margins in the history of general elections is enough to reflect the attitude of public. Hence, the voters this time must be vigilant enough and should take wiser decisions. Lastly, competent candidates must surely be supported irrespective to the background they belong to. Of course, the spirit for serving the nation can come from anywhere.
