An interesting thought…

I happened to discuss with a restaurateur/industrialist friend of mine the present national political scenario and role Uttar Pradesh will play in its future direction. He came with an interesting preposition… Rahul Gandhi as UP’s CM. And it clicked to me as a lighting…

rahul with massesRahul Gandhi have shunned himself from the unscrupulous power games that politicians usually play. He embarked on creating a grass root support for himself as well as his Party. He has taken party to new heights after series of happenings that took the Congress Party southwards. He is fast getting rid of the old war-horses and so called veterans and entrusting Organisation building to young leaders…

rahulsena-313His trusted lieutenants like Jyotiraditya Scindia, Jitin Prasad, Sachin Pilot, Naveen Jindal gives a feel good factor base for the party long dominated by politicians embraced in corruption and collusion. These young leaders are free from the web of the corruption as they have inherited lot of wealth – monetary and social – from their legendary fathers. His recent Talent Hunt program encouraged ‘good’ people to believe that politics still have some hope left.

Rahul Gandhi is fast becoming as lovable, as revered as His father Rajiv Gandhi. Interestingly today Rajiv Gandhi fell prey to political designs of the LTTE (also read https://omsherryom.wordpress.com/2009/05/22/remembering-rajeev-gandhi/ ). He is focussing on UP, because from their comes the number. I get hope that if he projects himself as CM candidate Congress would not only do exceptional good to itself but also for the State. UP has long been quagmire d in politics of hate and sham. Mayawati’s and Mulayam’s with their cohorts have used the state as their personal fiefdom to score political gains. The State is sandwiched between statues and religious bigotry with no inkling for development. The poverty is rising, the industrilisation process very poor, infrastructure in doldrums, the common man is suffering.

And, indeed, Rahul Gndhi, looks the only HOPE…A-men!!!
