Coalition is new reality, let us accept and moralize it

indian parliament
Friends, readers of my blog and fellow Indians! I see many times that some of us are very disgusted with the fact that no single party is able to win a majority of seats or vote percentage in last few elections. Some of us even suggest presidential form of government in our country. But let me make one thing very clear that if anything, under the broad framework of democracy, in India, is going to work. It is the most representative form of governance. I am in favor of raising national issues and educating common masses about them, but multi party system is different thing.

Now it is nothing but the truth that India is a big country and to give representation to all sections of society, we have to accept the multiparty system. Coalition politics is natural corollary of multi party democracy. Many countries have tradition of coalition politics, we just have to look beyond US and UK for the definition of democracy. For example, in this election the verdict is fractured and no single party is even close to form a government on its own. But polity hates the vacuum, so some government has to be formed. We can not push country into another very expansive election.

That is where post-poll alliances and coalitions come into the picture. And this is not a bad thing at all. Actually it is a better system than two party system. As in two party system there are only two opinions/options, now we have as many voices as we want. We can have a wider representation of people in this process. Our MPs now do not need to bind by policy of a big party. They have choices. If we have had two party system, then all those views have to be accommodated in two streams, but all of them still would have been there, just not that much vocal.

So, it is a high time that we accept …. no no … embrace the multi party coalition system of our country. Though I know that it is not the most efficient system. But you can have only one – freedom or convenience, it is the most basic natural rule of this universe. We choose freedom.

  1. There are two options left today for the BJP

    A. ADOPT A STRONG HINDUTVA PRO RSS LINE:

    Make Varun Gandhi, Rajnath Singh, Narendra modi as the default of the party and the party adopts the following guiding principles:

    a. Adopt strong aggressive hindutva policy ala Varun Gandhi.
    b. Does not appease muslims in any manner and actively campaigns for the protection of hindus and hindus culture.

    2. ADOPT CONGRESS LIKE PRO SECULAR RIGHT WING PARTY:

    a. Sack Varun Gandhi and Modi and publicly apologize to muslims for Godhra and Ayodhya.

    b. Actively involve muslims in the party decision making.

    The BJP has to decide between the 2 and decide soon.

    The best scenario for the BJP right now is to split between 2 factions.

    a. One faction is pro RSS includes Varun Gandhi, Modi , Uma Bharati, Rajnath Singh,Vedyurrappa and Murli Manohar joshi.

    b. Second faction includes anti-RSS people like Swapan Das gupta, Arun jaitley, Venkiah naidu, Shivraj Chauhan, and Sushma swaraj.

    This would be the best course and both should fight the elections separately and may the best man win.

    If the 2 factions remain together then animosity between the 2 will continue as both are diametrically opposite and have no convergence.

    My hunch is that the 2nd faction is more or less similar to the Congress line.

  2. With a population of over 1 billion, it is the need of the hour to get into coalition politics. This is a simple extension of logic which supports the panchayati raj system in the country.
    Looking at the scenario of national parties such as Congress and BJP, one can easily make out that these party which are in possession of more than 200 and 120 seats respectively possess only 5-10 vocal leader/decision makers, which clearly rules out the possibility of even representation of each and every part of the country. Take the case of Sikkim, Pawan Kumar Chamling from the Sikkim Democratic Front as Chief Minister of the state since 1994 is heading a government of regional party. Similarly regional parties such DMK, Janata Dal United brings up issues which can easily be neglected if there is no regional party.

  3. What Saurav bhasin says is true.

    But if BJP chooses the first option, the consequences are as follows:

    If BJP’s stand (that is option1) is acceptable to the people- COUNTRY IS DOOMED

    If people don’t accept- BJP IS DOOMED

    I will go with the first option because if we leave like Pro-secular wing then the hindus in the country will definitely going to be the minority peoples and there will be no security for the hindus in India… So go with option1… But the fact is that they need to come forward in all the states and work for the peoples and the media need to address the same…

  5. If you analyze the voting statistics of many constituencies in AP and Tamilnadu, it is clear that something impossible has occurred. This was most probably due to massive fraud by rigging/manipulating the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs). We all know that any kind of fraud is possible in India. Ask any expert, who spent some years in the high-tech world, he would tell how easy it is to break the EVMs’s embedded code and manipulate the voting. This needs serious investigation

    the comment below about subramiam swamy alleging evm tampering shudl be pursued in court with the evidence he has made available

    EVM hacked in 50 centers

    Subramaniam Swamy’s press release for 4/4/2009
    04.04.2009
    PRESS RELEASE

    The Congress Party President Ms.Sonia Gandhi seeing the imminent collapse of the UPA has set-up a seven member ‘crisis management’ team of foreigners based in a five star hotel in Delhi. This is a serious threat India’s national security.

    While the names of all seven members are available with me, I am gathering the detailed antecedents of these dirty seven. The first member identified for me is an obscure UK-based journalist called Mr.David Green who has written for London tabloids on “snack foods”. He was easy to identify because he is often seen-by SPG at the residence of Ms.Sonia Gandhi reading secret files being made available to her by some Ministers and bureaucrats. Indian intelligence is being blocked by the Home Minister P.Chidambaram from investigating whether Ms.Green is an operative for British Intelligence, the MI-6.

    One of the tasks assigned to this nefarious team is how to doctor the electronic voting machines in about 50 constituencies by using dual passwords technique and by hacking via wireless cyber techniques.

    Regarding the elections in Tamilnadu, it was the election held by DMK and their family… Not by the election comission. What pathetic was, the result of P.Chidambaram,honourable Home minister. Almost he lose the seat by 15000 votes around 12.30 PM on the counting day and at the end of the day the EC announced that P.C won by 3200 votes… This is because the announcement came from the PM office that he will be the home minister whether he retains his seat or lost his seat.. Misuses the power of Home minister he won.. An another example was the result of vaiko in Virudhunagar constituency, the registered vote was around 7 lakhs 40 thousand and while counting the no of votes were 7 lakhs 63 thousand… Still a Miracle where the extra 23 thousand votes came from.. and Vaiko lost by 14000 votes… And the worst case is he was lost by Manic Tagore a Delhi Person. He dont know Tamil and he campaigned in a more of rural constituency(People only Knows Tamil).. Tamilnadu is now becoming like the Bihar… Same on tamilnadu.. I felt very bad for being a tamilan in this state…

    can someone please explain why the upa ruled states had no anti-incumbency,unlike the nda and left ruled states.
    Can the central ec under congress picked nominees collude with upa state cms in rigging seats especially the close seats.Delhi,haryana and maharashtra congress actually gained
    and there was a surge in tamil nadu in the last hour
    even thou allianec math was higher than dmk and vijaykanth could cut into bothe dmk and admk.

    I have not seen any article that explains exactly how the evm’s software work,who guards them before counting and whether they are tamper proof.All inid has a right to know
    but english media are owned by congress

    I dont think there is any Need of having elections any more.
    Like Banana Republic, it is becoming Banana Democracy.
    Election Commission has gone back to the days of ignonimity(The Pre TN Seshan Days)
    The Puppets of Those Running The Government are Installed in All Constitutional Positions.
    Do we need Elections ?
    Better to use that money for Developmental Activities.
    Just see it guys, All The Elections from now on would be Won by congress and it’s allies.
    In Bihar to Nitish would snap ties with BJP by mid 2010 and join hands with congress.

    Dear friends,
    Results are good for some and bad for others. So, there is no point accusing and abusing each other over this. We all are educated Indians, so let us keep discussion civilized.
    Now the time has come when we accept the wishes of public and think how to work for better India from here on.
    Let us forget and forgive our friends, who have in heat of moment said something wrong. Constructive discussion from now on please.

    It is a spectacular victory for the Congress party’s blatant votebank politics.Congress out stripped other secular parties like CPM,SP,BSP,RJD by stoking the Muslim appetite for favouritism.Just a few.The Sachar committee for increase in Muslim percentage in Armed forces.No hanging of Afzal Guru.First pick for Muslims in national resources.The PM could not sleep when a Muslim was arrested in Australia.A Muslim vice- president.A mammoth 24000 crore munifence to Muslim dominated J&K,while HinduMuslims have now shifted from all other secular parties to Congress.They are pragmatic,while Hindus continue to be stupid. Orissa when asked for funds was told by Manmohan that money does not grow on trees.Nithish Kumar not getting even 1000 crores against 14,000 requested for Kosi relief.

    Friends, I recommend you all to ban RAJ. Because this blog is not for sharing communal perceptions, but rather for sharing thoughts, ideas and perspectives.Everybody has the right to discuss which political party they support and hope to see it at the helm of power.But, Raj has started abusing people and is discussing ethnic cleansing and genocides. This is what he has to say to one of the bloggers “The Nation is Already Doomed Zarina because of muslims and chrsitians.Zarina, go to your porkisthan and and be one of the sex slave to your terrorist lowlife”.
    I mean this guy is abusing everybody. If they wish the UPA Govt. what’s wrongin that. You may like NDA and someone else might prefer UPA. But, then he gets pissed off and starts abusing and threatens people.Decide for yourself about this RAJ guys.

    Respected Hari and AK, when wel wisher was wishing for the good of Anti Nationals and Terrorists and when he shamelessly was supporting Jehad and was stating that jehad should be hom grown and a govt. congenial to the jehadis alone should win and not stopping there was Abusing Hindutva, what can I do?
    Doesnt Quran Mention that All Non Muslims should be Killed.
    Doestn Quran state that for every Jehadi 72 virgins would be supplied in Heaven?
    Doesnt Quran state that every Jehadi is A Soldier for Allah, The Pimp.
    Is it Heaven or A Brothel House?
    Isnt moo-ham-mad a pedophile, Rapist?
    Doesnt Hadith state that”if a Man Rapes a woman, irrespective of their previous relationship, they become wife and husband”
    a few years backs, in UP, when a man raped his daughter in law, the maulvi’s judged that since she didnt cry out for help, she has to be punished, get married to her father in law and will become the mother of her original husband
    this is what islam is.

    BJP should seriously consider expanding its presence in A.P. This state has all the elements that suit to rebuild BJP. TDP is in shatters. PRP is a no show. Activate the cadre throughout the state. Votes polled is around 3.75% this time. Concentrate on telangana areas. TRS has lost credibility among the electorate. Highlight the problems faced by common people especially roads, water and electricity. Let the electorate know about the river linking and Infrastructure solutions . Work with people. Expand media presence both in print and tv. Rope in celebrities to instantly raise the vote share. Most NRI’s are sympathetic to the BJP. Top BJP brass should organise world tours and collect sufficient funds. Publicize the visit well ahead. This is the time to look at new avenues. BJP’s expansion will be a work in progress for next 20 years. Aim for atleast 15 seats next time from A.P.

    Well said AKS. Raj has gone completely beserk. It will do more harm than good to the BJP cause by such comments. There is alaways time to improve and that can be done only by introspection. Evidently there was something wrong for the result to be this bad for the BJP.
    Like you said the positives for the nation are that the utter regional biased demands of thses smaller parties will be largely reduced. The extreme anti BJPism practised by many parties also opposded to Congress has actually helped the Congress and they may have to reorient their outlook to the BJP.
    The BJP has over 100 seats and will have to perform the role of the principal opposition unlike last time when the left although supporting the Govt. appeared to be the main opposition party.
