Today, I saw a newspaper clip showing the son of the Chief Minister of Assam( a state on the eastern part of India) firmly rooting behind Rahul Gandhi (a member of the Gandhi family which has ruled India for ages).
As if his father had not been enough of a plate of disaster for the Assamese people, we would now be having to deal with his son, unfortunately who shows an inclination of long term politics in Assam.
As other states have progressed well beyond their means, we have lagged behind which will be very difficult for anyone to bridge. If you visit most of the houses in Assam, you will see elderly couples getting on with their lives, while their children have moved away to greener pastures. With every aging generation, a new generation comes to take over from what has been left. Unfortunately, that will not be in Assam in the near future.
Such has been the mediocrity of politics of the ruling party and appeasement of people in the name of religions, that you would see no industries, no corporates and other measures of development.
Nobody minds free gifts, but gifts are always temporary. I see and predict a very very bleak future for the Assamese people.
If I were ever to vote, I assure you that even if they were the only party left, I would never vote for this father son duo.
They have been guilty of separating families and weakening them. If I live long enough to grow old and aged, I would want to be taken care of by my own. That holds for everyone. But will that be possible? These politicians have chopped off the very legs on which a state would stand. They are no different from the British policy of divide and rule.The simplicity of our people has been exploited to the maximum. I assure you that we will realize it someday, but, by then, it will be too late. It already is.
