It’s been months now that in some or the other way an anti-nationalist or nationalist specific agenda has overpowered the prime time news bits and grabbed the headlines of various newspapers, journals and periodicals. Jibes by one party worker and counters by others, stalling the Parliament’s functioning, rethinking about our Constitutions’ fundamentals and its validity today and religious/caste/creed based issues are most widely discussed in forums, conclaves and confederations. Does our populations’ majority ruled middle class is actually concerned about these debates and their validity? Do these issues have any fundamental effect on their lives? Mere topics which are much talked about during their free time tea rounds with friends and families. That's it!!
We are actually indifferent about such issues, believe it or not. Then what actually is important, what matters to us and what these political establishments should discuss to become relevant. Simple and the answer is known to all but it’s the lack of intent which is the major problem. Survival of a 5 year term with more of discussions on these sensitive cum invalid discussions and no elementary work on ground is the way a government finishes its term. And if a regulator shows any intent then opposition halts every ounce of efforts displayed by the legislature.
We are only concerned about development, upliftment of infrstructure agenda, bringing people above poverty line and making mass employment opportunities. Do we hear about such agendas on a daily basis? We would have a broad grin and laugh off. Whether you are tolerant enough or intolerant to issues, basic survival necessities is what a person needs and direly awaits for. Till the basic survival amenities are not fulfilled, these anti-national or national agendas are just discussion points. They stand no relevance for major section of our society. That is the reality and it’s relevant. Hope the political parties take a note and just not work for another term but a decade of relevance for masses.
