Great Indian Drama ....

The fifteenth general elections are just round the corner and election related news and views are doing the rounds everywhere.Even people who claim to be apolitical otherwise are getting invariably sucked into the election mania. The Congress led UPA and the BJP led NDA are the two political fronts vying with each other for voters' affection ,but to queer the pitch has come the "Third Front" which as its name suggests is a third rate alternative and full of Prime Ministerial hopefuls.The voter is faced with a tough choice between the devil and the deep sea ,as both the UPA as well as the NDA have their weaknesses. The Congress is trying to Project Rahul Gandhi as future Prime Minister just because he has the right lineage,never mind the fact that he hardly has any experience in public life.The Congressmen are united only in their blind devotion to Gandhi family and sycophancy has been turned into an art-form.The BJP has a far better candidate in L.K.Advani in terms of experience but it seems like a divided house with Rajnath Singh and Arun Jaitley gunning for each others blood.The BJP which prided itself on being a 'party with a difference' has been reduced to a party with differences.It has been a steady downfall for the Lotus over the years and the loss of its erstwhile citadel Uttar Pradesh to BSP and SP has reduced its chances of cobbling up a majority. So where does all this leave the average Indian voter ? Which party or candidate does one vote for ? Due to this people end up choosing the seemingly lesser evil of voting for their caste or community member.One hopes that Indian electorate will be voting this time for political stability and good governance and not on narrow considerations of caste,creed and religion.

1. advani is 81.
2. in his opinion jinnah is secular,who divided india on communal line.
3. Kandahar episode took place when he was the union home minister.
4. parliament attack took place.
5. as an union home minister he failed to stop horror in Gujrat.
6. he is the one who is responsible for babri masjid demolition.
......and still he is the best option as prime minister!!!! rubbish.There is only one option imy opinion and that is Dr. Manmohan Singh.

@Change is here ... I agree with ur criticism of Mr.Advani to the extent that he is not a unanimous choice and has his own weaknesses .But Mr.Manmohan Singh for all his academic qualification and simplicity remains a puppet whose every move is guided by 10 Janpath ... and who knows Rahul Gandhi might get the nod ahead of him ...We need a PM who can show some spine and walk the talk on burning issues ...

as the constitution grants us, we have the right to chose not to vote. this fact is hardly known by anybody as politicians try to keep it under wraps.there is an article according to which we can decline voting for anybody. if everybody does that then the candidature will automatically terminate and someone else will have to be contested. anyways, all e can hope is that people vote with their heads and not their hearts. all in all it seems the UPA are going to again take away the relay race...as this race is something which they cannot hope to win alone.it will be a collective win.may the best person win!
