Dance of Democracy – TN Elections 2016

Cheap politicals stunts will create a bad example for future young politicians. (Next Gen. Politicians). Tamil Nadu is experiencing the heights of cheap political stunts towards May 2016 elections. DMDK’s negotiation tactics,  PMK’s day dream for becoming CM of Tamil Nadu, DMK’s begging attitude for an alliance with DMDK, pathetic unnoticed BJP for no major calls for an alliance, no comments on Congress and other minor parties and finally silent and helpless AIADMK.

Aslo, we got to see few interesting happenings,

  1. PMK’s simple and effective and most needed manifesto ( but from a worse visionary -party head )
  2. Seeman’s NTK with effective and clean manifesto and principles ( not strong enough to win..but a good start if he maintains his stand of opposing Dravidian parties in future elections too)
  3. Vaiko-Thiruma’s MNK with a mix of so-called activists turned opportunists in politics (MDMK, VCK, CPI, CPM). A good decision to join together and may win hearts if they maintain this for 2 future elections at least

Few of the top blunders are as follows ( Dance of Democracy )

  1. DMK’s Namakku Naame Thittam – Heights of political stunt ( got some positive and negative vibes equally ) but a great entertainment through memes ( thanks for that )
  2.  PMK’s “Change Progress Anbumani” and related campaigns in Obama Style promotions from A leader-party head with no clarity and no individuality
  3. Congress’s belief and assurance on winning more seats in alliance with DMK
  4. BJP’s where to go situation and waiting for a last minute call from any of the parties for an alliance
  5. AIADMK’s silent and confused attitude
  6. DMDK leaders crystal clear interviews with blabbering every time and get trapped to the journalist questions ( as the way they wanted ) and for all the enjoyable memes circulated in social media portraying DMDK leader

Apart from all these blunders, the worst was the negotiation talks from all parties to Vijayakanth except AIADMK. TN ppl witnessed historical situations like, a 50+ year old party to beg DMDK for an alliance. Finally got ditched with the decision of DMDK’s standing alone in all 234 positions. But now DMK pitched in for post-election alliance with DMDK with no regrets of getting ditched recently.

More to talk about these wonders and blunders of TN elections 2016. The worst part is, people are left with No effective manifesto, No productive schemes and No sincere promises, No people-oriented principles, No inspiring leader and No hope for growth.

Good luck TN for more wonders and blunders of TN 2016 elections and also for a bright future with inspiring leaders like VK, MKS, AM, JJ.  😉 This too shall pass by. Another election will come and we hope for the best.

Wonders or blunders, Let us VOTE and decide.

ps: ”Dance of Democracy” is a title lifted from TOI’s election news page. This post is just a view of mine and no intention to portray or impose good or bad impression on any individual party. This is jusst an expression of my thoughts on day to day recent political incidents I came accross.

Badly need a change in approach…!

I was just looking at the poll percentage of the 2009 elections. Since two phases of elections were over..I was really worried on seeing the poll percentage. The number of peoples turnout for voting was considerably less when compared to 2004 elections. Recently in the second phase of elections only 55% were recorded.

Phase 2 Elections poll turnuot

State                         2004         2009
Andhra                     72               68
Assam                       69               62
Bihar                          57               44
Goa                             59               55
J&K                          45               46
Jarkhand                  57               47
Karnataka                62                55
MP                              49                45
Maharastra             55                56
Manipur                   56                 65
Orissa                        68                 55
Tripura                     67                 80
UP                               46                 44
Total                        59                 55

ps:- source TOI news paper dated 24th april 2009 & all numbers in percentage (%)

Only Tripura has did a good job. I don’t think those peoples are influenced by Internet and online campaigns. But the most influenced Bangalore has registered only 50% o votes.

What happened to the online vote campaign, online awareness on the importance of voting. Seemed to be a election with more number of young votes…but less number of votes registered when compared to 2004 elections. Does this proves that the approach was totally failed ? what is the result of the “n” number of NGO’s working on this for past years ?

Wish to have some good numbers in the third and final phase of elections. And that too for sure …in tamil nadu we need a change….lets see…!

One thing I am sure that…..we have to change the approach for making the peoples vote. Let’s think differently.
