The surest way to reach pedestals of power in India is by wooing SiSiLiMu. I do not mean the Sisi Leembu as shown below but…
the Sisi limu which has a very high voter turn out and votes in blocks enmasse ( Without generally applying brains).
- SC ( Scheduled caste)
- ST ( Scheduled tribes)
- LIG ( Low income group)
These 4 factions on Indian demography are to politicians what item numbers are to Bollywood. They are viewed by politicos as a monoblock which can easily be attracted by doles, freebies and fokat ka maal ( read reservations, free electricity, paani). If you add this booby mix with a twist to your campaign, the chances are that you to have cracked the political box office.
While this is good for the politicians and their litters, I believe it ravishes the nation and plunges the country or states back by a few decades. Lets see some instances
- Indira Gandi (Garibi hatao full spectrum Si Si Li Mu) .. Plunged the nation into ugly emergency.
- Jyoti Bose ( LIG -Hawkers union) Threw Bengal in industrial ranking from # 3 to #30 now. // Predominantly Li
- V P Singh ( SC – Mandal politics) : Let to mammoth immolation of youth caused total despondence // Si Si
- Mayavati ( ST – Dalit ki beti ) : Put entire UP in dark age.. // Si Si
- Mulayam/Omar /Soniya : Played to muslim galleries ( Shahi Imam, Azam Khan , Shah bano etc) : Lead to worst communal riots. // Si Si Mu
The worst part for the nation as Delhi goes to vote tomorrow is that the new political snake is working on all 4 of this stream. The CNN IBN poll shows that Kejriwal has very solidly cemented his base in all the SiSiLiMu constituencies. He is turning out to be the ugliest of all all politicians of our times and tops it up with anarchy and opportunism every time.
SiSiLiMu or Banta is a cheap alternative to branded aerated drinks.
Hygienic or harmful ? we know not but its the opium of the masses in the nation’s heartland… Upadravi has learned to woo all of them well..
A wise person had well said – ” Politics is the last resort of a….
Do you see any instance when a person riding these planks has come to power and any thing good has happened to the nation?
// Apparent Exceptions :
(1) Sonia gave Jaat reservations ( Si Si) in April 2014 and got crushed but then then Jaats were unjustified reservation seekers
(2) Prithviraj Chavan and Sharad Pawar implemented 71 % reservations in Maharashtra and got routed. Marathas who were added to reserved class did not belong to SiSiLiMu
