BJP win has brought a fresh breeze of a much-needed paradigm shift in Indian Politics. It’s been long that under the compulsions of minority Government, the ruling parties were compelled to keep the country’s development agenda on the back foot. The inability of post-Rajiv Gandhi Governments leads to the dominance of smaller parties, corruption, and criminalisation of politics. Citizens were getting frustrated with this rampage of the unethical political class and no wonder when Narendra Modi gave hope of development, Indian Voters voted maturely.
But I guess the real paradigm shift is not that who won and who lost and with what margin. The paradigm shift is that Citizens has now sent a clear message that Politician needs to work for people they represent and deliver. New Government will not have any Opposition Leader as no Opposition Party could cross 54 seats (10% seats) mark qualifying criteria for Official Opposition Party something they can use to push their development agenda for the benefit of the citizen and offering a better life for future generations.
Paradigm Shift is that the Oldest Party – Indian National Congress, first time finds it directionless due to leadership crisis and which will lead to new political equations in the country. Paradigm Shift is that first time banned organisation will come out its shadow and impact Economic, Cultural and Foreign Policies of Country.
Paradigm Shift is that Pakistan will now look toward India very differently and their military aggressiveness may not be as sharp as it has been since Independence.
Paradigm Shift will be that if the Indian Economy can get back on growth path beyond 8% and slowing China Economy doesn’t improve, India will be all set to be next Superpower.
But one thing is sure, that day of 16th May 2014 will change this country for forever, hopefully, for better and new Government will meet hope given to people.
