Coming election political parties are trying to put their best efforts to capture the most prolific position in the Indian administrative system. Irrespective of the educational exposure and leadership skills the leaders of the parties hold with them, they are more concerned about winning the race for the most influential PM post.
Political parties are using all forms of media in making their candidate look more valuable and worthy of being the PM of this country. Especially the extensive usage of online media and social networking sites the target percentage of reaching the voters have seen a notable increase this time, it is the simplest way of reaching the target segment of voters due to high presence of online users.
Some parties are working on image makeover which had a very ugly past; some are trying to avoid the past events of huge and massive scams under their credit. Some parties are also working extensively on the usage of appeasement factor of a particular community and some are playing vote bank politics.
Major political parties have failed on the front to deliver the best they can, however this election which seems to be the most unpredicted election of all time, with the birth and impact of AAP given a complete different picture for this election.
The big names in the race for this supreme position are making headlines due to their involvement in active political campaigning. The ruling Congress party which has entered into the election battle ground without openly naming Rahul Gandhi, Vice President of Congress party as their Prime Ministerial candidate, however with his approach and targeting the opposition makes him likely to be the face of Congress party for 2014 election.
The next contender and much hyped Prime Ministerial candidate by BJP is Narendra Modi, who carries a black spot in his kitty with the heinous Gujarat Riots of 2002, in which many innocent were killed. Now Modi has come with a lesson of development and only development and in this case even his state is lacking behind.
Apart from these two big candidates, there are few more names that can have an impact on the elections. The name which has caused ripples in the political scenario is Mr. Arvind Kejriwal of Aam Aadmi Party. In his debut year Kejriwal took his party to a very good position and even became the CM of Delhi for mere 50 days. Kejriwal announced his parties plan for Lok Sabha election and started the campaign in a very aggressive manner, targeting both congress and BJP and trying to take advantage of their loop holes.
In the Making of Third Front
The joining of 11 different regional parties with the intention to provide a purely people oriented developmental path and to give more weight-age to the secular and democratic framework of India. The third front will have a fair chance if they succeed in confronting Congress and the BJP. A non-Congress, non-BJP front would come into being after the Lok Sabha elections and there would be no dispute over the prime minister’s post. The third front which consists of 11 political parties will work together and will stop the Congress in again retaining the top position and will also tackle Modi to become the prime minister.
The names which are making a buzz in third front if they get considerable majority seats for the PM post are Samajwadi party’s Mulayam Singh Yadav from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar from Janta Dal Party, and Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Jayalalitha of AIADMK. The only element of worry for the third front will be Mr. Mulayam Singh Yadav of Uttar Pradesh who along with his son Akhilesh Yadav Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh was under sharp criticism for their failure in swift control over the Muzaffarnagar riots in 2013, which led to a very disastrous situation and it has been described as “the worst violence in UP in recent memory.”
