AAP: let it be the voice of YOUth!

Presently, politics is the hottest topic in India as the election campaign goes on. It’s quite interesting to be able to realize what’s going on back home while living overseas in Canada. It fascinates me to watch how the political parties are crafting policies as well as designing their mottos and agendas according to trending topics or what plans and facilities people want to have in their day-to-day lifestyle. As a young reader, I was eagerly looking for the parties that were targeting young voters as well as their reasons and benefits for the younger group of population. There are many political parties in the game during this election season but I will highlight only three of them, which include the Indian National Congress Party (Congress), Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) and Aam Admi Party (AAP).

During the election season, I usually just scan through some of the biographies of politicians, but this time I was reading through it more and was in fact surprised to know that some of them have been illiterate and with criminal records. I don’t understand why people choose criminals to be their leaders in the first place while being illiterate in the modern world is acceptable, but they shouldn’t be leading a country that has one of the largest populations on the planet. I am speechless on how this is happening to India and why no one is trying to stop it…

The overall objective of Congress is to accomplish the well-being and advancement of the people of India and the establishment in India. The motto of the Congress states to accomplish this through peaceful and constitutional means. Congress also demands to have equality of opportunity such as political, economic and social rights. They also wish to aim at world peace and fellowship at the same time while successfully advancing the people of India. Congress has been ruling the country for ages but has been drastically unsuccessful on cleaning up the corruption and promises to be a youth friendly nation. The country’s corrupted leaders still have a lead role to play in this party. However do they still deserve a chance to rule the country?

Bhartiya Janta Party was established in 1980 and is also known as “Indian People’s Party”. This is India’s second largest political party and has been categorized as to have generally supported Hindu Nationalism. The BJP party is the favorite party from a Hindus perspective as the party supports concerns of Hindus more than Punjabis and Muslims widely. Therefore, it is generally not very welcomed in other religions especially Muslims due to the demolition of their historic Mosque, Babri Masjid. Muslims still have a big population in India and their concerns should be respected as well just as much as anyone else.

The only party that has bluntly taken drastic actions in attempting to fight against corruption in India would have to be the AAP. They are the only party thus far that has fought against corruption according to their motto and has practically applied their policies into action. This party has been waiting for a long time to come up-front and take the lead role in the political game now. Ever since the support of layman AAP has nonetheless made its way to succeed. What are people waiting for – there is no magic stick that AAP will accomplish their agendas and policies without the support of public if they want to live in a corruption free environment, so let’s vote for the party with the attempt to change something that has destroyed a nation.

The parties are blamed for corruption and in misleading the country are the Congress and BJP. AAP, the newly existed party consists of leaders that have never had any corruption background/charges and are willing to serve the country with a positive and clean approach in politics and they certainly deserve one chance to at least play the political game.

There is one ultimate reason besides corruption to why young people are attracted to the AAP and not the other parties. This is because their entire information is not only open to the public eye but also easily accessible to the public 24/7 on the web. The party leaders are also easily available to reach out by public but that’s not the same with the Congress and BJP. In other words, AAP seems to be more practical in the modern world than the Congress and BJP for individuals and businesses to grow equally.

I have my roots and culture in the state of Punjab in India and it is quite frustrating to know that the growth of bars and pubs is higher than that of hospitals. The increasing usage of drugs and alcohol amongst the youth of this generation is outrageous and corrupted. This state has been led by Congress in the past and the BJP with the collision of a local party Shiromani Akali Dal, which has drastically ruined the state to its extreme. Most of its young individuals and professionals have had to move overseas to seek employment and to feed their families because there are not enough resources for them to settle down in Punjab to raise their families. There are countless reasons that have made this state a poor and sick state because of polluted ground, air and water. There need to be more positive steps to take in order to help the people of Punjab and especially the youth survive. 

So what are we waiting for? Let’s change India once and for all for it to be a corruption free voice with enthusiastic and educated people for youth and the future of Indians worldwide!

  1. aam aadmi, the word has got the recognition in these 2 to 3 years. Earlier it was just used once in every five years by the political parties especially by the Congress (Congress ka haath aam aadmi k saath), but they failed to put this slogan into the hearts of the people, off course they had to fail because it was never made from the heart or for the aam aadmi but only for the election slogan. Now, Congress says that we will go to each and every house of this country and let the people know about what work they have done for the people.
    according to Bible
    ( “A city set upon a mountain cannot be hcomment_ID”)
    Has the ruling government question its own self that they have done that much little that they have to mention their works of development.
    if they had really done wonders, then it would have been easily seen by the people of this country and this wave of anger would never ever have been there, which is today running in the hearts of all the common people of this nation.
    there are two possibilities either the people of this nation are blind that they are not able to see that what excellent developments their Government has done, or the Government is bluffing about their achievements.
    In these all 66 years we are least bothered to even check weather our representatives are really doing the task for which they have been sent? awareness for checks has never ever been created by any of the political parties, they have changed the purpose of politics which was supposed to be a very holy social service.
    Before they sell the whole nation, we the common people of our nation need to interfere even putting our lives at risk, at least the next coming generation will have an righteous environment to live.
    we have not taken birth by our own choice, so how we can deccomment_IDe to live long.
    so let the authority who ultimately rules us deccomment_IDe our life and death thing and let at least us start fulfilling our responsibilities which is to take away our own selves from these cruel hands (current politicians).
