Triumph of Democracy - Part of India Series
Indian public for time and again have proved that public is the king in the democracy. No wave, no cult figure is strong enough to rule the mind of the country which after years of betrayal is no more ready to be dominated by any one in any way. These are the instances which keep alive the hope in the constitution of our country.
Delhi Assembly Election results with historical victory of Aam Aadmi Party have reconfirmed the same thing. This is not only the victory of Arvind Kejriwal lead AAP but of the people of Delhi. The unbeatable Modi-Shah combination tastes a defeat after an eight month show of arrogance and one man leadership. The man who never falls short of words on any issue remained silent on his party's MP flabbergasted remarks against minority communities. He never spoke against 'four children remark' issue, 'Raamzado-Haram--do speech', omission of 'secular and socialist' from the preamble of the constitution, attacks on Churches in Delhi, Ghar Wapasi row, etc instead he flaunted Rs 8 lakh suit weaved with his name on it which was contrary to the image of common Chaiwala he projected before the 2014 general elections.
The connect he made through development agenda was lost after his swearing in as the Prime Minister of the country. He remained on a campaign trail building his international image during his foreign visits without any benefit for the country. People trust a person not merely for his great persona but also for the way one conducts oneself. The self proclaimed lucky man don't even realized that hundred of soldiers died in cross border firing and thousands of people lost their loved ones,their valued belongings in severe Kashmir flood after he became PM.
The mandate would be same for AAP if they fail in their promises to the people in the future. This Oh Yes Abhi! generation wants delivery at the earliest or at least want to see some work in the direction of that promises and not mere boosting of certain things you are doing. People say that Delhi is mini India owing to its diversity equivalent to the diversity of our country and that it gives direction to the nation by its action as in the past with Independence day movement, Emergency period, JP movement, VP movement, Anna movement, the fire ignited here spread to the nation. The recent Delhi Election coverage by foreign media also shows that world is also watching Delhi.
I hope that Modi government will mend its ways after these eye opener results and would not haste now to annul important policies and laws by previous government like MNERGA, land acquisition law, environment clearance law, etc. I also hope that Arvind Kejriwal's government would deal more professionally with the issues in Delhi and not with the quickness they displayed in 49 days. Till any big political historical event hail the democracy of India.
