The Curse of Polls- Words of Leaders

What happened on the 8th of April 2014 showed us the real picture of politics, and leaders’ approach to seek support. A cabinet minister of the state who is bestowed upon with the responsibility of governance did not even think twice prior to saying that a particular community helped the nation win the war of Kargil. Categorization of army men on the basis of religion can be looked upon as the most disrespectful and illicit way to gather votes. SP chief Mulayam Singh has recently justified the discontinuance of death sentence for rapists alleging that ‘boys are tend to make mistakes’. And, so are our politicians.

What drives politicians to deliver such speeches and yet escape any punishment from the commission that stands responsible for fair and free elections? Let us quickly remember a few instances that corrupted the face of democracy. Who can forget the provocative speech of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen MLA, Akbarudin Owaisi. The intention was clear- Support on communal lines. Other noticeable, yet shameless incident was when the Congress candidate from Saharanpur, Imran Masud was found delivering a note in public that was intended to provoke the residents against the prime ministerial candidate of the BJP. While we are travelling to a world of tomorrow that talks about human rights, integrity, and respect for all, a separate line of politicians are still carving their way to the Parliament on communal lines.

Yes, the diversity of this nation may be the reason why our representatives are prone to exploit such ways; however, the protection of our richness should what they must aim at. What can you expect from other leaders of a political group, the President of which alleges community leaders to safeguard the split of votes to other parties? While we choose our leaders to bring in prosperity and open new ways of earning livelihood, our MPs and MLAs are least bothered. They have so far realized the fact that the residents of this nation are less attentive towards development and more focused towards gaining personal benefits. Let’s now come out of the instances of MNS leaders resorting to violence against the migrants from other cities and a senior leader of the Congress, Beni Prasad Verma calling a prime ministerial candidate a ‘goon’ and party’s president his slave.

It is necessary to uncover the factors that have led the leaders take a safer route towards agitating communal sentiments, and yet escaping any penalties. The voters, to whichever community they belong to, are never hesitated to welcome additional benefits for their religion/ caste while keeping the other communities’ interests at stake. It is so uncomplicated for the religious and political leaders to lure voters with perks and with statements that rank their community superior to the others. On the second hand, the EC has always been lenient and inattentive towards the speeches that agitate communalism. At least a single instance of cancellation of the candidature is the need of the hour to set a stringent example.

The Army officials played an eminent role in defining the principle that anyone who fights for the country’s pride is an Indian and no division on communal lines will be allowed. Voters too must encourage leaders to follow such footsteps and must curtail any of their attempts to fetch votes on basis of communal hatred. Let’s term this pure process of selecting a deserving and capable representative a ‘competitive test’ rather than a ‘battle-ground’.
