Verdict 2009

This is year which will be remembered in the history of congress party. They landslide victory in the Election despite not so good performance in last five years. The result was shocking for most of the party. BJP who were expecting a close number near to congress, now they are far behind the congress in terms of result obtained. And congress is almost near to the majority and going to form the government again. Personally, I was disappointed by the way the people responded for selecting the government this time. If the performance of the government is analyzed in last five years, there is nothing substantial which was done by the UPA allay. The corruption is all time high and price of regular items are all time high. Not even potential national level projects was kicked off in last five years. Lapse in security system and all and unending list of disappointing performance by the UPA government. Some of the power hungry minister and some tried to pacify some of the communities by providing sops in educational sector. Still amazingly the party came with maximum number of seats.
On the other hand the poor plan by BJP to go single handed in most of the state made the party to pay a lot. There is no presence of BJP in most of the southern states like TN, Kerela, AP. It did not pay much attention to these states in terms of forming alliance with other political parties. In orissa, the spat with BJD made it not to get even a single seat. This all accounted to defeat of BJP. Though there are various agenda for the party, but it failed to capitalize on them. Poor plan, no proper alliance in southern states and poor execution made the party to see the failure.
One good thing happened this time is some of the party like RJD, SP, LJP virtually lost their identity. The defeat of Ram vilash paswan is a strong message to others about the strong performance of Nitish government in Bihar. These netas (Lalu, Paswan, Amar singh) now almost silence out of humiliation as they don't have any bigger role to play. Also the Left party.. I pity on them. So majority of single party has some good sign of a stable govt for next five years with no pressure from Lefts in running. I hope this time the govt will do something in coming years which it could not do in it last 40 years of ruling after independence.


  1. arey! but still the fact remains Congress is better than BJP .. though i totally agree both are equally bad

  2. I agree with u dude.. Hoping some less corrupted ministers this time

  3. Anways...More votes means..More people who elected them ... which means they could satisy people...India is not only us...there are people who have profited from the government...We cant say that UPA didnt do anything when there is a clear proof of thousands of votes expressing their gratitude toward government...In Andhra, i could mention Rajiv aarogyasri which is the best health program for poor people..kudos to Congress!!

  4. In AP the corruption is also all time high in last five years. Why don't u look at that

  5. All the highly corrupted ministers were not been elected into Assembly.We cant say that entire cabinet is corrupt which totally negates the victory of congress in A.P.There will be people always in any party for corruption which does not mean that entire party is corrupt.Tell me one thing,if something is SO bad,why would people like to vote again to the same party?

  6. BJP has got a very ugly notion of worshiping Hindutwa(Giving fuel to the so called "JIHAAD" a nd hence the terrorism),which is even more dreadly than corruption,and more over corruption is in every political party.I agree none of the contemporary political parties are truely secular ,but at least they do not encourage Hindutwa only.Coming to the ecnomics crisis,BJP and Congress both used it as a propaganda for their seats.While BJP said elect us we will bring down the crisis,Cogress said reelect us and we will do it for u .I think I am a novice to talk about the flitheist politics and probably do not posses the right to address it this way as well .I never voted.Its not me only who didnt vote and talked a lot of politics its 70% of indian citizen.And I beleive the root cause is this and nothing else.Hoping for more awerness among us .Among the common indian people who are always the victims of any thing that happens.

  7. All the parties have their own hidden or prominent agendas for the vote bank.. some say they are "hindutwa" and some they are "Secular". But ultimately the aim is for the vote only. So one should not go by the wording of the parties in which they ask the votes. According to me the deciding factors should be the performance of the government in the last five years and their achievements. Most of the population in india are from rural area and small town, they just need livelihood and better infrastructure to for them. And many rural india simply does not know what government is doing in terms of development in rural as well as in urban india. They simply go and cast the vote. So it is all about equations and agenda before and after the election which decides the winner.

  8. The best thing is that...we are not going to face election before 5 years...

  9. You are very true,people are ignorant and they neither know whome to vote nor do they bother .Just casting vote doesnt slove the problem casting vote for the right candidate is the objective.And thats what I meant,Awareness in people.

    Coming to the wording of the political parties ,though the parties dont mean what they say but everybody else takes them seriously.Imagine shivsena being the ruling party..they will take india to BC .....nyways its a long debate...we will sit together to talk on this :)

  10. Hi Khadanga, Let me first congratulate to you about this article. You wrote good analysis but in bias manner. I do not like congress and BJP both but if you ask common man to select among BJP and Congress then most of people will go with congress. It doesn't mean that congress did very good job. But certainly congress is far far better than BJP. The main reason for that BJP guys never understand we all are human.Always Hindu Hindu Raam Mandir.... They should start talking about developement. Inspite of corruption in politics, India had 8.8 %GDP for past 5 year where as 5.6% was in BJP term.

    You are talking about price but you do not count your salary increase on other side.. so people should start thinking positive.

    You should look at positive note:

    1) Most of corrupt politician out of parliament like Sadhu yadav, Mukhtar Ansaari, Sahabuddin etc...
    2) First time 56 women MP.
    3) Only one MP uneducated.
    4) Young MP getting chance in ministry to change India. Like Rajiv Gandhi bring IT revolution and telecom revolution in our country.

    Hope you understand my point... I agree with you that this Election year will be remember always in history.

    Keep writing....
