Akhilesh Yadav: The New Face of Indian Politics

Akhilesh Yadav: The New Face of Indian Politics

By Ayush Prasad

Mar 7: Indian democracy has showed signs of maturing and evolving. There was a 43% rise in the number of female voters in feudalistic UP. In Punjab the reformist incumbent is back to power for the first time in it's history. And SP or the Socialist Party that's close friends with top industrialists won 226 seats which is a record, apart from Indira frenzied UP from 1985.

The man of the day is certainly Akhilesh Yadav, for reorienting his party to remain relevant in modern times. Those who do not change with the times, perish!

Akhilesh studied in Dholpur Military School. Since his mother passed away at an early age, he was brought up by his grandmother. He had appeared in Karnataka Common Engineering Entrance Test in 1990 and secured a merit seat for Civil Engineering at SJC College of Engineering, Mysore. He was a sincere but average student. He used to travel by train. Neither his teachers nor most of his classmates knew he was the son of then UP CM. After his Engineering, he appeared in GRE exam and did MSc Environmental Engineering from University of Sydney  (one of the top Universities for the course).

Mulayam Singh, famous for OBC politics had strongly objected to Akhilesh's marriage with a Rajput girl. Going against his father's wishes, he married Dimple Singh, an Army officer's daughter. In 2009, she contested and lost a Lok Sabha seat to Raj Babbar. This spurted him into action and he undertook 3 yatras that will culminate in 10 Kalidas Marg tomorrow.

He took some bold decisions such as keeping Dons out of the party and leaving caste-religion politics!

One can draw several lessons. For one, no defeat is final. Every defeat is a good chance to throw out the old and usher in the new.

Numbers are very important. For a politician, numbers are the seats; for a CEO it's the profits; for a student it's the marks; for a cricketer it's wicket/runs. Numbers quantify the results that define the perception of success or failure.  Decisions get justified or criticised due to the number. If there the number is low, every step taken seems wrong. Akhilesh and Rahul Gandhi did similar things such as giving chance to youth but numbers changed the meaning of each!

Bold decisions must be taken with conviction and must be followed up by action. Success of a decision is not only dependent on the decision itself but also on the action that follows it. Akhilesh had the conviction to remove dons, he took a risk but followed up with action such as aggressive campaigning!

To be a leader, one has to relate to the followers. Not only should one understand the aspirations and pain, but feel it too. Akhilesh has gone thru the grind of today's youth, he connects better and hence could attract them. Whereas Rahul was an angry man in India's happiest state (UP).

There was once a time that was about Globalisation. Companies created global brands and products. Political Parties won National Mandate. With better and economical  forms of communication and transportation, the world has become a much smaller place. But ironically the trend is of localisation. MNCs around the world have set up R&D labs in different countries to modify old products and to develop new products that meet the needs of the local consumers. Hence you would see McDonald's burgers that have "tadka" flavour or Coca Cola launch Nimbu Pani. Engineers in ITPL Bangalore break their heads to design fuel efficient cars with good suspensions for Indian roads with Global Brands.

Similarly in politics, regional parties and leaders do well because they understand regional issues and aspirations. Rahul spoke about larger issues while Akhilesh spoke about local development like building toilets or roads etc.

But my sympathies are with Rahul. Famous parents are as an added advantage. But it's also seen as a perpetual silver spoon where ones hard-work gets undermined. People assume of a "Hand that pushed in your support" exists at ALL times but in reality it does not

For children in families like Gandhis or Bachchans or Deols times of failure are particularly hard. One carries a huge burden of expectation. Mulayam Singh may also have failed several times, made mistakes and learnt from them. He grew from scratch and unlike Rahul Gandhi, media and others were not after him at all times pointing out and criticising his errors.

Rahul Gandhi worked very hard. And speaking from personal experience, sometimes some things don't work out and sometimes some things just do. He lost and deserves criticism; that is a price of his silver spoon.

But the UP wallas can be a cynical bunch, they may have punished him for his hard work!!! As the joke on twitter goes:  "42-year-old Rahul is still a kid... But 39-year-old Akhilesh has 3 kids."

    Mulayam and Akilesh have promised the voters of UP the moon.The UP treasury is empty and in debt.It is easy to promise but difficult to deliver.Mulayam's Gundaraj will be under check.His chelas ( Thugs ) will shortly be frustrated and disheartened. The revolt within will show up.One has to just wait a year to see the fun and watch the true colours.Frankly in UP, without using and paying the thugs one cannot win an election.In my personal opinion UP should be further divided into 4 new states for better administration.The people here are utterly poor and the Govt. schemes do not reach the people or eaten away by the village goons.

    My dear Amul Baby,
    In the hours of grief I am with you and my sympathy is with you and with your entire firangi family. You lost miserably in U.P., Punjab and Goa and still you and your mother are showing your faces to the people of this nation which they do not want to see and you know the reasons very well.
    My advice to you is better you resign as General Secretary of corrupt congress, get married and live peacefully. Your mother have plenty of black money with her in India as well in foreign banks which will not be finished for you next 7 generations if you get married and produce one at least. Ask your mother also to resign and dissolve this corrupt congress and live peacefully or leave this nation once for all.Any bad luck but I won't say better luck next time because I don't tell lie and your future as dark as your firangi family made of this nation by loot.

    Yes, now Congress will spend few millions for all level of PR exercises by putting blames on all other people/issues. The truth is this was a test of Rahul's leadership qualities and he has proved once again that, he has no leadership qualities. The real reasons for Congress failure are :-
    1. Rahul Gandhi could not get the trust of the people ( this is basic quality of a leader)
    2. He has failed in creating an efficient team to work diligently and deliver
    3. He didnt have any specific and innovative offerings/solutions which people can relate to
    4. Finally, he didnt manifest himself as leader with his own mind.

    If he appears for the interview for a Junior Management utive position, 99.99% of professionally managed Private organizations will reject him.

    Dinesh Poojary-Christian community doesnt mind SP coming to power in UP.Its muslim voters who have made SP come to power and for that they are awarded 18% reservation by SP.Party which preaches communalism is out in UP and we are happy for that.Even in Ayodhya BJP is wash out.Manipur and Uttarakand congress is in power.In Punjab it is the Akali Dhal which has secured 90% seats and BJP which is an ally of Akali Dhal is rejected by Punjab People.Congress has done better in Punjab by securing 44 seats which BJP just 12 seats in Punjab.Here in Punjab intelligent Sardarjis rejected communal party.In Goa, BJP has recognised the importance of catholics and has fielded catholic candidates.Catholics have nothing to lose in Goa even if BJP comes to power as they have voted their own people to power.Over all Daiji reader must be happy with the election outcome as one thing is clear-COMMUNAL PARTY BJP HAS NO FUTURE IN INDIAN POLITICS.

    BJP lost in Ayodya.  Congress lost in Goa.  BJP lost in Uttarakand.  UP public voted against BJP n Congress.  BJP lost few seats but congres gained in UP.   Congress retained Manipur.  Congress gained in Uttarakand.

    OUER ALL RESULT IS: Despite significant changes. Congress is still popular than BJP. Both parties failed to impress. Increased Petrol prices & scandals effected Congress.

    Conclusion: People have rejected BJP after their rule. Rajasthan, UP, Uttatakhand. State level BJP is king in corruption. Central level congress.

    Mulayam Singh n his family is facing CBI probe in misappropriation of funds n excess property. Any time they may be summoned by supreme court after charge sheet. Congres did a big mistake by not making seat adjustment with SP. Rahul Gandhi accepted whole heartedly that it's his mistake. 'Todays mistakes are tomorrows experience' this is a warning to central govt. for the future.

    It was thought that the victory of SP, despite being dubbed as a ‘party of goons’ would be for the better after trouncing BSP, BJP and Congress. However, it is a shame that it began with raising its ugly head again, as its works misbehaved with the press and some had to run for the safety of their lives. Even a young 12-year old lost his life. Now they want compromise, I hope it is not a sign of what is in store for the future.

This will be the gate way to younger genaration let is spread to all the states in the near future. It is proved that the congress can not win votes using the cards of Gandhi ( Nehru ) family clout and using miniroty vote bank policy which used divide and rule policy for the past 60 years and gave rise to a majority apeasing party like BJP.

    In the whole this country looted by all these politicians using different vote bank politics creating disturbance in the peaceful society of India. We need well qualified younger honest and humble leaders to lead our country.

    One sentence in the article by the author baffles me. 'But my sympathies are with Rahul'... Hmm
    Can't get more personal that man What can one say?

    Coming to Ahkilesh it's just a start for him. The text books of 'do's' and 'dont's' are already
    in front of him. The 'Do's' of his father ....like how to build a party from scratch,making right moves,noise at right times etc. The 'dont's' also from his father in matters of Governance,what he did as Defence Minister of the Country, indulging in corruption, excessive caste wooing etc.

    With this 'Text Book' at home, if 'Akhilesh does his 'revision' regularly he is sure to pass out with flying colours in the long time 'examination' of UP and National politics!!

Any party should not give tickets to canidates who do not perform, who are not wanted by the people and who get defeated repeatedly. There are many congress canidates in mangalore like that. No matter, Rahul Gandhi or Priyanka works for them in elections, people will never vote for them. This is what happened in UP now.

    It seems he covered 9000 KM distance thru bicycle for election campaigning and hence became more close to people. Rahul Gandhi traveled only thru chopper..

    Congratulations. We found new real “Yuvaraja” but much to the surprise of Congress Supporters this time Crown fall on “Yadav” not on “Gandhi”. Karnataka people should also enjoy that Akhilesh Yadav did his Civil Engineering at SJC College of Engineering, Mysore.

    Again as usual Congress Supporters started insulting BJP Party Leaders instead of taking their own Stock at UP. But very difficult days ahead for SP in UP because CBI will start haunting their Leaders very soon. Akhilesh made huge Election Promise in their manifesto for which they require at 18,000 Crores of Rupees which is highly impossible for present UP Budget

    7 Christians WON in GOA from BJP,
    24 Muslims WON in UP from SP,
    12 Minorities Won in UP from BSP,
    3 Muslims WON in UP from Congress,
    7 Minorities WON in Maharastra Muncipal election (held last month)from BJP.
    Salman Kurshid's Wife lost in UP


    Conclusion: 20% of Minority votes cannot decide the fate of the country. If you want to come to the power STOP USING MINORITY CARD. and please MAJORITY people with Good governance and Good Development...

    EGjactly...Just like congress and specially Karnataka Congressdont have anything to brag about their performanace past 50 or whatever years, they just have to feed on shit left over by BJP. Nothing much to talk about them. But thats politics brother. Today, no party has any moral ethics to go and aks for vote. Only thing one can say is he ate so much & I ate only this much.

    By the by only good hope is it seems like Communal politics may be thing of the past some time soon. BJP loosing Ayodhya,Louise Khurshid, loosing Farukkhabad despite husband and union law minister's 4% sub quota Promise, Christian Majority Goa recognising Manohar Parikers BJP by sweeping Congress to Calangute beach... All good signs that people are slowly learnign. Its only matter of some time for the people of our region not to vote vlindly for party which gives them reservation.

    Congress over years but steadily & gradually, is vanishing from Indian political scene. In UP out of power it is now around 3 decades. Perhaps, the continous highlighting of our Nehru family, Amul baby, Priyanka, & has made the party image as Monarchy then Democracy in public eye view.

    Reported " Youvraj Express derailed. It seems it startted with a hope from Rai Bareli initially but de-railed before Amethi. 4 passengers seriously injured, Youvraj, Diggi Mr & Ms 4% Kurshid. Reports confirmed injured have been shifted to Manipur hospital. For further treatment, plans to take the to Beijing by road anyways as Manipur/Nagaland & AP does not require CHINA Visa anymore as it will be gifted to them soon.
    Future 2050 : Manipur is renamed as Democratic republic of north east comprising of AP, Nagaland & Manipur a intrim territory of China in down south. Imaphal will be the capital with AICC headquarters with the family ruling this only territory under the command from Beijing. Jai ho

    BJP leaders and supporters have one common problem. They always wants to prove others failures.They do not want to assess their performance. They lost drastically in their main constituency Ayodhya.(from where they started brainwashing the people).Now they should start talking development or else they will have the same fate as congress.SP won the election not because of merit.People were fed up of all the other parties and in comparison they thought that this party is better for them.

    Yesterday i watched his interview in NDTV. He is such a nice guy, no one can believe that he is son on Mulayam Singh Yadav. How politely, soft spoken guy he is! We really want such type of young politicians. May god bless him. An interviewer asked him about the defeat of Rahul Gandhi, he told that, this is politics...today i won, But i wish all the best for Mr. Rahul for his winning in next election.
    But if we asked the same question for BJP or Congress candiates, the answer would be different.

    Assembly elections just concluded in five states is a clear indication that people are fed up with UPA rule and UPA is heading towards NPA(Non Performing Asset)
    Though BJP might have little bit to enjoy,in reality it is also a waring signal to it also and 2014 general election will be a crucial for its stretegy to capture power at the centre.
    In totality these elction results are clear indication of emergence of a THIRD FRONT in line with JP movement of 1970s and prove fatal to BJPs dreams.Its also a lesson to cheap leaders like Diggy.Singvi,Salman Khushid etc., Congress should ask these leaders to shut their mouth for sometimes now or relieve them from duties of spoke personship.

    India moving away from family charm or religious sentiments. The people of UP rejected Congress and decissively BJP. Will it be a trend setter, wait and watch.
