Priyanka Poltics









"Priyanka came  to Amethi on a two day tour to campaign for Rahul," Amethi constituency Lok Sabha incharge Chandrakant Dubey said. According to sources, Priyanka will hold public meetings, meet party workers, besides visiting all the 16 blocks in this constituency. While BJP has fielded Smriti Irani, AAP has fielded Kumar Vishwas against Rahul. Samajwadi Party has not fielded any candidate from Amethi.


"Varun is a Gandhi who has lost his way," Priyanka, who accompanied brother and Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi while filing nomination papers in Amethi on Saturday, said during an address to party workers in Sultanpur.Priyanka's attack on Varun in Sultanpur also holds significance as he is contesting the Lok Sabha elections from the same constituency. She even went on to ask the Sultanpur electorate to help guide him the right direction. "Please help in bringing my brother back to the right path,"she said.Usually, the younger Gandhis are reported to be sharing a cordial bond and never in the past have they made any negative remarks about each other.

 Also, it was earlier this month that Varun Gandhi praised Rahul's work in his constituency Amethi. Addressing a public meeting, Varun Gandhi said that Sultanpur must replicate the development work done by Rahul. "We require small scale industries, like the ones Rahul Gandhi has set up in Amethi. However, I cannot give that example as I haven't seen the work at the ground level," Varun Gandhi had said.However, Varun's showering of praise did not go down well with his mother and BJP MP Maneka Gandhi as she adviced him to refrain from commenting on things he did not knew about.

General Elections 2014

India gained its independence and a democratic status in 1947 and the general elections coming ahead in 2014 will mark 67 years of its status. The minds behind the thought of India as a sovereign nation were excellent and had no personal motives while participating in the establishment of a democratic set up.

Corruption was far from their noble thoughts and deeds. The political situation has become highly corrupted and there are flaws in the election process that are beyond estimate. The electoral process is still followed while staging elections in the country so that the government at the Center can be established and can function to run the country.

India has parliamentary constituencies where in Members of Parliament for the Lok Sabha are chosen through voting/election which is done every 5 years. May 31, 2014 marks the end of present constitutional term of the Lok Sabha.Congress had an emphatic victory in 2009 Lok Sabha elections. UPA-2 started on a high by winning almost full majority on its own. However, their second term has been marred with controversies and corruption allegations. Starting with Commonwealth Games scam, every few months saw a new scam coming out like Adarsh Society scam and the biggest of all, the 2G scam. 


Fuel and commodity prices have risen sharply in the past few years adding to the woes of common man. Crusade against black money and corruption by Anna Hazare and to some extent baba Ramdev has only added to the woes of Congress. But Congress is shrewd and knows politics quite well. They know that offense is the best way to defend. For every scam or corruption news that comes out, they bounce back with equally controversial news against rival parties. Their projection of Rahul Gandhi, who has not yet proved any political sense, as a Prime Ministerial candidate may help them in their campaign build up to 2014 polls.[pic][pic]Main opposition party Bhartiya Janata Party was left down and out after the 2009 polls. BJP's arch enemy is not Congress but BJP itself. 


It's leaders have failed to capitalize on core issues of price rise and corruption against the Congress. They should have learned from how Congress and some smaller parties have been able to successfully use the anti-minority tag against the BJP for over two decades now. BJP has also lost a lot of mass appeal leaders over the years. Most popular elader in india Atal Behari Vajpayee has now retired from active politics. Charasmatic leader and face of modern India, Pramod Mahajan was killed in a tragic incident. Stalwarts like Govindacharya and Jaswant Singh were thrown out. Prime Ministerial candidate Murli Manohar Joshi has been made to sit on the sidelines with no influence on national level politics. L K Advani is close to retirement years and firebrand Sushma Swaraj hasn't proved to be a winner yet.
