By his own admissio

By his own admission,” he says,” “Iraq is obviously falling apart anyway,” For all the latest World News, It is only then that major political parties would take notice and not take Muslims for a ride.Politically aware and educated Muslims will not allow themselves to be led like sheep and they could hold those seeking votes from them accountable for their words and deeds However if the old and hackneyed path is again tread upon this would constitute the ultimate travesty and tragedy Instead of party A playing them like a fiddle it would be party B or party C doing the same The condition of Muslims will not be reversed and Muslims will continue to wallow and languish Muslims in India do not need the politics of patronage and paternalism They are a robust community and the idiom to deal with Muslims has to be one of engagement If Muslims are indeed engaged by the political class of the country this would need to be reciprocated in equal measure and poignancy This has to be a two way street-unlike the one way street of patronage in exchange of votes and then forgetting about the community This in the final analysis would be more honourable and dignifying for all Mutual cynicism will end and Muslims will emerge as dynamic engaged citizens of India with a set of rights and duties thereof Muslims contemporarily constitute the dark side of India This has had a negative contribution on the community and it needs to change Muslims need to introspect and engage vigorously as serious players and actors in the polity The politics of patronage and paternalism needs to give way to politics of respect honour dignity and equipoise It is only then that Muslims in the country can redeem themselves and make themselves players of reckoning And it is only then that the political class of the country will not merely offer apologies but seek Muslim participation in the affairs of the country and respect them As defeats go this has to be the most comprehensive and the most humiliating for the BJP It has lost the classes and the masses in Delhi Neither the politics of communal polarization and caste games nor the grand rhetoric on development worked All those dirty and below the belt attacks haven’t worked either Its leadership upon which the party prided itself has just been delivered the royal snub by the people In India people vote mostly to punish the incumbent government Bigger the public anger worse is the defeat In Delhi the BJP was in power by default From the reaction across the board post the results from both voters and non-voters it is evident that most wanted the BJP to lose more than the AAP to win The party would be loathe to admit this but this indeed was a referendum on the performance of the central government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi Kiran Bedi with Narendra Modi AFP The magnitude of the BJP’s defeat would take time to sink in but the message is unambiguous The party’s grace period has ended People have sent it a curt reminder: stop giving gyaan we are not idiots You are in because we wanted a hopelessly corrupt and pathetic UPA to go You start delivering or else…It depends how the BJP recalibrates its strategy from here on But it has to remember a ruling party has to be much more than an election-winning machine Election defeats and wins as well are rarely due to one singular factor – a combination of several factors both local and external shape an electoral verdict The wave elections which are getting more frequent across the country now blur all traditional calculations and perceived equations including that of caste class and identity The Delhi verdict reveals the frustration of people goes much beyond the local It has dimensions that deeply involve the central government too The public perception is slowly turning against the BJP This election defeat may not harm it much but it certainly sends out the warning message that henceforth all electoral battles will be on a footing of equality with other parties It has squandered the popular goodwill that has been tilting contests in its favour so far So how did the BJP lose the way it did Here are some reasons 1 There’s a growing perception that the government at the centre is a hopelessly attention-seeking one It has got into the habit of trying to ‘impress’ too much This is overbearing but would still be fine if it matched achievements on the ground Seven months on and the gap between promise and delivery remains poor This has not stopped the party from making every small development a big media event People can see through this 2 The leader of the government is increasing coming across as a self-obsessed individual busy proving to the world his personal popularity He wants to be counted among the big league of national icons too soon That would not be a problem if the effort was subtle and nuanced and there’s substance to match Nothing has been subtle about him so far – a dress with one’s name written all over does not particularly convey the right signals – and his promises are yet to materilise on the ground 3 The underclass has hit back in Delhi If it feels alienated under the currentdispensation the BJP has to blame its own outlook towards the economy or at least the message it has been conveying It egged on by cheerleaders in the ‘expert’ brotherhood has been following an economic policy that is cynical as well as perverse To be fair both Prime Minister Modi and the BJP have been sober and balanced in their views on the economy but the government is being seen increasingly as anti-poor and pro-rich The backlash was expected at some point As the government pushes ahead with its economic agenda the coming days would be interesting 4 The victory of 2014 was never a victory for the Hindutva ideology The BJP was a purely secular choice They did not vote the RSS and its affiliates into power But the latter took the mandate as license to Hinduise the country The normal Hindu society abhors social disharmony Thus it does not approve of burning of churches and attacks on Muslims The government’s silence on the activities of the Hindutva forces has only made it look as a partner in crime Dictatorial control over a democratic political party does not work it can be counterproductive Victory alone cannot justify shabby treatment to party workers by way of induction of outsiders The Kiran Bedi move was a disaster and this was done to show the local leadership their place A rebellion was waiting to happen and it was a passive one in Delhi The results show not even the faithful stood by the party Never undervalue your own should be the lesson for the party They can and will strike back If the organization decides to go apathetic the leadership howsoever charismatic can do little The BJP promised good governance But matters other than governance have been dominating the public consciousness ever since it came to power Complacent after a series of assembly victories perhaps the party ignored these After the Delhi defeat it cannot be afford to do so The final message it can take from the elections: never underestimate the common man Lucknow: BSP supremo Mayawati today said the Election Commission should take suo moto cognisance of the ‘manner’ in which BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi filed his nomination from Varanasi at the time when sixth phase of polling was being held all over the country including Uttar Pradesh "BJP PM candidate Modi filed his nomination for Varanasi seat yesterday At that time

during a campaign rally PTI An attempt is being made to create air in favour of BJP forcibly with the help of media with the funding of capitalists which is not visible on the ground Mayawati alleged Attacking the opposition parties she said that when they come to the power they formulate policies to benefit capitalists and run the government The people have to vote after much consideration otherwise the country will be pushed backward she said The BSP supremo said that after capitalists they have also managed astrologers "Huge money is being invested to create air in their favour" she alleged Mayawati said that there was a fight between BJP and Congress to form the government?
