India – Political Sea Change on the Horizon

April 6, 2012

Subsequent to dismal results for Congress in five State assembly elections in March 2012,

The most recent by-elections in southern and western states of India has proven disastrous for the ruling power United Progressive Alliance (UPA II), the Congress Party under Mrs. Sonia Gandhi leadership with other members –

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Home Minister P.Chidambaram, Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, Law Minister Salman Khurshid, and MP Veerappa Molly…holding key cabinet positions at the center.

Congress party being incumbent in the state and central government had a stronghold in the southern state – Andhra Pradesh sworn loyalty to Gandhi – Nehru family with guaranteed victory considering the political party representation from AP reportedly was 33 seats exceeding the electorally key state Uttar Pradesh (UP) in northern India.

However, the by-elections outcome reversed the status quo with regional report confirming that Congress party targeted all seven Assembly seats in Andhra Pradesh and lost all of them by significant margins ranging from 30,000 – 45,000 votes and coastal region performance apparently a colossal failure with some Congress candidates fearing security deposit forfeiture.

Congress led UPA – India’s major political party electoral debacle could be attributed to two major issues confronting the state – secessionism within state territory – Telangana seeking autonomy and rights to self-determination from Andhra Pradesh with decadent feudalism facilitating minority abuse of power over majority.

Congress Party as the State and national authority refusal to address the victims’ plight comprising farmers and marginalized mainstream led to massive protests and state shut down with huge revenue loss that could have been avoided through peaceful settlement by the government.

The second factor being corruption among State Congress members having become nationwide epidemic precipitated political defeat for both national parties – UPA II the current administration and major opposition BJP succumbed to electoral backlash.

Further the central government rejection of strong Jan Lokpal bill i.e. anti-corruption law protecting political class with impunity is the impetus driving electorate to demonstrate ballot power.

Similarly in Maharashtra with Mumbai as the capital and commercial center, Congress setback from municipal to state legislative seats is poignant resonating popular demand for corruption free society governed by real democracy barring nepotism and dynasty allegiance to globalist power.

State elections thus far with Uttar Pradesh up north and Andhra Pradesh down south is a huge disappointment to Congress party especially for present Gandhi family at the center,

The regional parties trouncing them across the nation is indicative of the beginning of the end of dominion republic rule reining control under the guise of democracy.

Transfer of Power rather than surrender of power in 1947 and subsequently in 1949 general rights briefing via constitution erroneously assumed as transformation to republic rule with national sovereignty still remaining under British Crown instead of Indian republic.

India under British Commonwealth of Nations shares the status with counterparts Australia and Canada in this regard.

Congress Party founded by Alan Octavian Hume during colonial era maintains undemocratic laws passed in 1878 until today alongside mute opposition committing sacrilege in temple of democracy – the Parliament.

Specifically the prevalent laws subjugating citizens to sustain authoritarianism somehow escapes Parliament members attention despite unprecedented fasting over ten years and other peaceful protests by civilians in the beleaguered regions of the country.

The Arms Act now known as AFSPAArmed Forces Special Powers Act – the ramifications witnessed in North East and Kashmir Valley under national security pretext judiciously in compliance with globalist policy – governance by guns eliminating peace prospects and constructive dialogue.

Vernacular Press Act passed in the same year 1878 enacting press censorship and crackdown on civilian dissent critical of the government continues with same velocity in the twenty first century evidenced in the civilian death Rajbala at the anti-corruption rally in New Delhi.

Ironically the power granted by the people to the elected officials used against them with excess force, income tax raids, intelligence agencies 24/7 surveillance and denying due process on false allegations… are common political measures to exert authority.

Government and corporate collusion undermining democracy with corruption seeping into army barracks in lucrative deals and contracts is the expansion of globalist agenda aimed at world dominance by discrediting nations through puppet regimes deliberate sabotage of economic progress not to mention the threat to sovereignty emanating from persistent external influence.

The two large political party system in India with the rest disoriented, there is an urgent need to fill the void in the absence of formidable political representation for the people restoring law and order in the political lawlessness extended into other branches of public and private enterprise.

Anti-corruption legislation viz. Jan Lokpal bill, Right to Reject and Right to Recall – the overwhelming requests from electorate will not be promoted by government and other political factions due to conflict of interest and lack of political will.

The alternative to the dilemma is India against corruption i.e. IAC coalescence with substantial membership across the nation forming a political party and contesting elections to give electorate a fair option in the local, state and national elections.

Then IAC could achieve political reform as legislators instead of activists given the political establishment defiance in passing robust Jan Lokpal bill even though corruption is a monumental problem decimating the moral and ethical pillars in society.

The civil society genuine concerns regarding corruption dismissed as intrusion in Parliamentary affairs by political machinery evading investigation and prosecution for treason, embezzlement and violation of constitutional law as well as Parliament sanctity proved in cash for votes in Parliament and during elections to public office.

IAC upon being elected delivering promises post elections in Parliament, State assembly, city and municipality would strengthen democracy with a new chapter defining Indian political future.

Again IAC in solidarity could shape the political landscape starting from local to national heights and lead India in turbulent times in history ending foreign demagoguery and sophistry declining proposals beneficial to nation at large.

Indian electoral mandate in the latest elections clarify republic power in changing political dynamics slighted by elected representatives against the convention not to hurt the source or reverse could happen given voters are the decision makers in a democratic environment.

Proceeding with the trend in forthcoming elections would yield republic empowerment.

India awakening to reality on political accountability legitimized in voters’ discernment is the tip of the iceberg with imminent sea change on the horizon.

Congratulations! To winners in Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra on the political victory in by-polls.

Good Luck to India against corruption (IAC) with the new millennium political party pledged to greater good of the people and the nation.

Jai Bharat! Vande Mataram!

Peace to all!

Thank you.
