India – The Political Game

The recent developments in India with political establishment sworn allegiance to enemy of humanity functioning from within and outside the nation are engaged in self-destructive course.

The incumbent administration headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with members of political class in the ruling and opposition at the national and state level together misinterpret mandate with misuse of power – customary in politics. 

The external forces desperate strategy to polarize society worldwide at every opportunity for vested interests spare none with representation across the spectrum actively promote discord and anti-republic agenda.

Despite fait accompli evident in status quo, supremacists instigated partisanship on social issues exacerbate protagonists, catalysts and agents’ situation with imminent failure.

Indian political power confrontation with youths and various demography from time to time is nothing more than distraction to prevent public focus and scrutiny on government and opposition parties’ performance or the lack thereof on burgeoning issues concerning people and the nation at large.

The education ministry positioned as human resources department (HRD) frequent broil with student organizations in reputable educational institutions like Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Chennai earlier, incident involving resident scholar suicide in Hyderabad University and now Jawaharlal Nehru University(JNU), New Delhi citing caste and religion based allegations prove concerted efforts to provoke and distort student activities on campus as anti-government initiative.

HRD minister Smriti Irani challenging citizenry to guess on personal profile related to own caste inviting needless speculations and possible affront regardless of the fact on origin being Sindhi and last name Irani connected to Rubin Irani (Iranian Jew), the repeat reference to subjects as Dalit or Muslim in latest controversies is the irony.

Not to mention the HRD minister prior to holding cabinet post and elevated to political spotlight was a strong advocate for none other than the so called political rival Rahul Gandhi with appearance on Indian network utilizing soap opera stardom mocked this website for empirical presentation on Congress Party and dynasty rule under the guise of democracy.

The political theater in Indian Parliament is aptly performed by small and big screen actors attracted to politics for entertainment.

HRD minister offer to quit politics upon providing evidence for links to these rows although education ministry response to these episodes has been far from rapprochement enhance theatrical enactment.

Furthermore, HRD minister entry into politics and participation in election marred with falsified statements on credentials in sworn affidavit electoral form and subsequently under oath speak volume on individual integrity and credibility of political system.

Stoking sentiments using religion, caste and creed for wanton notions is colonial tactic implemented through wilful operatives incentivized with monetary rewards and limelight.

India or for that matter any nation falling prey to deliberate crescendos to disrupt normal environment is negligence at best and acquiescence at worst in safeguarding sovereignty and democratic principles that guarantee freedom to share views on state of affairs.

The seat of democracy would foster not forbid peaceful dialogue, assembly and citizens rights to convene forums on matter political or general.

Invoking poet (Rabindranath Tagore), saint (Vivekananda) and scholar (Dr. Ambedkar)  in Parliamentary debate would be meaningful in adherence to the message from the great minds.

Peace to all!

Thank you.
