The assembly election results for the five states are out. It is clear that this time the agitated farmers had dictated the election results. The ruling dispensation had made an error in their analysis of voters’ mood. People largely voted considering their day-to-day lives and not for rhetorics on religion. With these results, it is wise for political parties to work for the livelihood enhancement of common man.
A week ago, BJP was sitting comfortably with their prowess extending all over North India. They had a complete control over the Hindi heartland. The BJP were in power in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh along with Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Jharkhand and a coalition in Bihar.
Surprisingly, in a single sweep they have lost all the three major states viz. Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh to their arch rival Congress. With the Lok Sabha elections a few months away, this semi-final clash may settle things straight. The Congress is not going to fight for a lost cause. They have rejuvenated under the leadership of their President Mr. Rahul Gandhi.
The political class needs to devise their strategies with a pro-farmer outlook. It is people who vote in the elections. And the basic rule in order to win the elections is to make the people happy. Farmer discontent due to agrarian crisis and lack of initiatives to implement the M.S Swaminathan Commission recommendation’s on Minimum Support Price (MSP), doubling of farmer’s income and loan waiver schemes are critical issues in this election season.
There is a moral to this story too. Maintain utmost civility and humility while dealing with people and their crisis or else the King and the Kingmakers will be abandoned to the annals of history.
