India needs street-fights and more of the likes of Kejriwal!
It is naïve to expect real change to come through compliance with rules and laws that have only perpetuated political evil in India. The country has so far been known only for corruption, inefficiency, unabated rapes, and criminals in Parliament and state legislatures (where the elected representatives have even been caught watching pornography).
Unquestionably, India needs change, not status quo. Only the likes of Arvind Kejriwal and his AAP can give Indians hope of a meaningful change in the way the government is run.
While it is certain the Congress will be shown the door in the next few months, the BJP or any of the regional fringe parties may only bring about a change in leadership, not any change for the better!
Chandrababu Naidu vs Modi: One party is trying to ensure dynastic rule continues to thrive and the other is led by someone who has bulldozed himself to the forefront through heavy marketing. Chandrababu Naidu failed to do it despite the dramatic changes he brought about in Hyderabad and Andhra Pradesh, something that made Time magazine recognize his as the South Asian Man of the Year once.
Without drama and even street-fights that the AAP stands accused of, India will remain in the stranglehold of the Congress or the BJP.
Silly Media: The BJP or other fringe, regional parties may be able to bring about a change in leadership but that will not signal a change for the better.
So the silly media must stop talking of rules, laws and the Constitution in a blatant attempt to run down the AAP.
It is clear the AAP does not indulge in politicking or in actions that are politically correct, as they are not from the same pit as that of the Congress and the BJP. Why should they? After all, they were voted to power in Delhi on an anti-corruption plank.
True Colours of Congress, BJP: By standing in the way of the Jan Lokpal bill, both the Congress and the BJP have shown their true colours – that they will not take kindly to any anti-corruption initiatives. Any talk of processes and modalities are only dilatory tactics.
The transformation of India cannot happen by blind adherence to laws. If laws are there to scuttle change and prevent a fully-transformed country, they need to be thrown out and replaced with ones that are meaningful, ones that can take India to superpowerdom!
