So the most awaited moment for most of the Indians has come when their admired leader NaMo is going to take charge of this country. It was a historic win for BJP with 272+ seats. It has been ages since India witnessed a single party alone gaining absolute majority. In a country that has numerous political parties and where people mostly cast their vote on the basis of caste,religion and regional interest seeing a party getting an overwhelming majority was nearly a miracle.
I was never an ardent supporter of NaMo but have always appreciated his contribution in upliftment of Gujrat. Seeing his work in Gujrat,I do feel hopeful about this country’s(and of course my) future. But what I am most happy about is this time the whole India got united in bringing their admired candidate into power. This is the true power of democracy. If people are determined to bring a change, they will surely bring it.
More than the victory of BJP,I feel it is a victory of the people of India who threw the corrupt neo-dynastic rule of Gandhis out of power. Since 10 years we have been tolerating scams, unreasonable price hikes in this country while the people in power were busy increasing their balance in some foreign bank account .It should be a lesson for them never to take ‘Janta Janardhan’ for granted. Now left with the number seats not sufficient enough to form even an opposition , they should realize that the worth of an ‘Aam Aadmi’ on the expense of whose bread they built their ‘castles’. It is this common man whom they exploited and who consequently threw them out of power.
This should also be a lesson for the upcoming government that now Indians are not going to tolerate any injustice being metted out to them. If NaMo and BJP desire to stay in power after the next elections too, they will have to be flexible with their nationalist ideologies. In order to keep up his image nation wise NaMo will have to do away with his fascist ways. What was tolerated in Gujarat at the time of 2002 riots ,may not be in rest of the India . So many young Indians(that forms a major chunk of Indian population) look upto Modi for his Gujarat Model. They have high expectations from him in the field of education and job opportunities. If he wants to remain popular among youth, he and his party would have to mould their ways and adopt a more liberal and secular outlook.
Any government should always keep in mind that it is people who bring it into the power. And so can they throw it out of power as democracy stands for ‘Government for the people ,of the people and by the people’.
