India – Similarities in Regimes Reining Control
As stated earlier I draw similarities between India’s national political parties Congress and RSS directed BJP and their regional cohorts responsible for the poor declining to poorest state and the middle class ever struggling to make ends meet in a nation rejoicing independence over seven decades now.
Beginning with dynasty politics based on inheritance of power as birth right and prerogative is adapted from colonial feudalists subjugating majority for sheer minority interests and wealth amassment lasting several generations and yet never content with material assets continue to seek power and political authority regardless of merit or eligibility criteria.
Indian State of Jammu & Kashmir entirely under dynastic rule shared between two muslim political dynasties Abdullah and Mufti families since India’s independence have miserably failed in meeting basic expectations of Kashmiri muslims let alone the Hindus and citizens of other faiths in Kashmir, Jammu and Ladakh.
J&K two dynasties and descendants viz. the former Chief Ministers Omar Abdullah and successor Mehbooba Mufti taking pride in their respective privileged status for being born with a silver spoon were preoccupied in enhancing personal affluence rather than involve in economic development of the state.
Perhaps the two dynasties Abdullah and Mufti in the Indian State of Jammu & Kashmir could have demonstrated effective governance in dispelling tensions and protected Kashmiri natives – the Hindus i.e. Pandits and other denominations as well as non-muslims from persecution and atrocities forcing them into exile rather than remaining complacent and complicit in the deterioration of the state law and order necessitating central government intervention with troop deployment.
There is an urgent need for politicians to introspect prior to indulgence in parody on others diet much to self-embarrassment.
The article will continue focus on other aspects and evolution of Indian politics with highlights on political parties – Congress and RSS guided BJP mirror reflection on many facets of political power and economic mismanagement.
