Politics in India has plunged into abysmal depths, with the politicians passing snide remarks about one another. Amrinder Singh Raja Warring’s, the President of the Indian Youth Congress, recent tweet about HRD Minister Smriti Irani is an example of the ungentlemanly behavior of the Indian politicians. In the tweet, Singh has asked Smriti Irani, in the most insulting tone, how in a short span of time, she has been able to reach a top position in Bhartiya Janta Party? The tweet reads as:

#SmritiIrani ” क्या है तेरी कहानी ? जो तु बन बैठी इतनी जल्दी #BJP की महारानी , क्या कला दिखाई जो मोदी हुए दिवाने – तु सुनादे तेरी ज़ुबानी। ” ( Smriti Irani- What is your story, that in such a short time you have become the queen of BJP. What skills you have shown to Narendra Modi, Please tell it in your own words).

 

It’s a matter of grave ignominy that the politicians, holding such prestigious positions in the government, use such offensive words. It clearly indicates that the standard of Indian politics has become abysmally low.

This is not the first time that the politicians have divulged into the character assassination of their fellow female workers.

Congress MP Sanjay Nirupam had earlier said to BJP MP Smriti Irani, “It’s only four days of your entry into politics and you have become a political analyst. Aap toh TV pe thumke lagati thi, aaj chunavi vishleshak ban gayi ( You used to dance on TV and now you have become a political analyst)”.

Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh in a comment praised Meenakshi Natrajan and then passed offensive remarks about her. He had said, “Our party MP, Meenakshi Natrajan, is a Gandhian, simple and an honest leader. She keeps going from place to place in her constituency. I am a seasoned smith of politics. Meenakshi sau tunch maal hai.”

Today where the safety of women has become one of the most torrid issue for the nation, such snide remarks about women coming from our politicians give us a setback. The situation is much worsened by the fact that these leaders get away from their misconduct with just a mere apology. It’s high time that severe actions should be taken against the leaders who wallow in the luxury of their political position.

It is too disgusting that Shiv Sena is aiming for something which was nothing but an act of betrayal. Here the principles and ethos of the party are just sacrificed. The “chair” of Chief Minister is what the individual parties in Maharashtra are wanting so badly. And for this only Shiv Sena has severed its ties with its all-time ally BJP which emerged with the largest number of MLAs. Is it not the BJP with which Sena made the alliance before the election? Why so much bitter feelings after the poll result? Many past elections were fought on this mutual understanding. Sena had always taken pride and bragged about its power and clout as because the BJP was behind it. But now very contrary equation and chemistry are on display. NCP, Congress and Shiv Sena are sharing the ideas as opposed to the expectation of the whole electorate.

Democracy
Politics in India might lead to a sinking democracy.

One believes it’s Congress and its High common which Shiv Sena Supremo Late Bal Thackeray always disliked and ruthlessly held them up to ridicule. It was because they hold the opposing ideologies. But now his son Uddhav Thackeray kneeled down and sought the helping hand of those rival camps to walk the party through for the chair of Chief Minister. Going by the flood of comments on the social media, this party has ostensibly fallen from the grace. BJP is not a holy cow either. It is equally good at flexes its muscles for the power.

While Maharashtra is already under the president rule, the NCP and Congress now exploring all possible means to back Shiv Sena.   Uddhav Thackeray only wants to see his son Aditya Thackeray being the Chief Minister of one of the riches states in the country. The trend is not at all healthy. Here everything is utterly clear that the cherished values of democracy in India are fast eroding. Majority of the states in the country, only the “particularly families” are  always standing up to rule the roost. This is a bigger threat to the fundamental values of the country.The NATION is no more controlled by the government of the people, nor is it for the people. It is the government of the particular families which is formed for the fulfillment of the low greed and narrow aspiration of those particular families. Lastly, it is the common people who are always at the receiving end of the leaders’ whims and tantrums. Phew, the country is not at all in the safe hands.
