Good governance and Delhi win, divisive politics gets defeated

Rajeev Bhaskar/Raghbir Singh Brar | February 11, 2020 06:37 PM

People of Delhi have spurned politics of” divisive agenda”, Citizenship Amendment Act, National Register for Citizens and Abrogation of section 370 besides rejecting theory of Hindu Nation into a constituently secular country. Since December 2018,

The BJP has lost power in five states including Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan,Chhattishgarh,Maharashtra and Jharkhand. Now Delhi is the sixth state where it has lost despite it all out efforts to win. In Haryana too, BJP had fallen 5 seats short of half way mark.

People of Delhi have also rejected slogans like”Desh Kay Gaddaron Ko…..?

 

Delhi assembly election results, AAP comes third time, BJP trails behind as poor second, Congress fails to open account

 JA;LANDHARArvind kejriwal’s third landslide victory, with bagging 62 seats, only 5 less than the last election and BJP shrinking to only 8 seats (by 6:10PM) proves that it is a victory of good governance and defeat of hollow and shallow politics, which is issueless and only plays with the emotions of the People.

While Arvind Kejriwal only focused on achievements, including providing quality education and improvement of government schools, opening Mohalla clinics, providing 24 hours cheap power supply and drinking water besides building roads, dealing with traffic and pollution problems, BJP mainly focused on Nationalism, CAA, Abrogation of section 370 and bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir besides shouting slogans like “Shoot the traitors of the country” trying to make the elections polarized.

When BJP had its stalwarts like Amit Shah, the all powerful union home minister, who engineered BJP’s wins in two parliament elections bedsides many others and PM Narendra Modi, who were considered to be invincible besides an army of ministers and MPs, AAP, a rookie party, did not have such tall politicians who could give the BJP a political fit resourceful completion in any way.

But unlike the BJP, which tried to fight the elections only on political issues and feeling of Nationalism, Arvind Kejriwal refrained to attack Narender Modi and respond to the BJP tactics to provoke him to respond so that he could become a target of false propaganda. His party only canvassed for his good governance and won the elections.

It is the fifth state sixth state where the BJP has lost assembly elections. Congress, which had been ruling Delhi for the 15 years in the past under the chief ministership of Sheila Dixit, has even failed to make an entry in the Delhi assembly.

The Delhi election have also proved that the elections can also be fought on the delivery of good governance with limited resources even defeating a National party like BJP which is ruling at the centre.

Delhi elections, on the other hand, considerably minimized the role of the media, as most of the media houses allegedly propagate the BJP agenda and tend to ignore other parties.

The elections of National Capital Region, which is not a full fledged state have also shed out an impression among public and political parties that election voting machines(EVMs) can simply be tampered to get desired results which has been an issue among the defeated parties in past  to wash their hands off instead of some introspection.

Since December 2018, The BJP has lost power in five states including Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan,Chhattishgarh,Maharashtra and Jharkhand. Now Delhi is the sixth state where BJP has lost despite it all out efforts to win.In Haryana too, BJP had fallen 5 seats short of half way, mark.

But after it win in Delhi , AAP also should tread more carefully and it could not perceive to gain ground in neighbouring states, like Punjab, where electorate and issues are different from NCR.

The people have Delhi do not seem to have put a stamp of approval on the very important issues (burning issues like CAA)on which the Saffron party had fought elections.

It is yet to be seen whether the BJP introspects  and fight next elections for state assemblies on the issues of unemployment, poverty, pushing the economic growth forwards besides promising basis amenities to the people like health, education, drinking water and cheap power supply.

Emotional issues and populist measures have to be avoided for all round development of the country.
