The moment you speak of elections and voting, you become a brand ambassador of a political party. Should it be so? 

Can’t you be called a citizen who has invoked his responsibilities as a citizen of India and not merely a political activist?

Only 55% of Bangalore voted.

What an irony!

The youngsters feel voting is involving in politics. It is a waste of time to invest in polls. They feel hanging on instal or having fun with friends is more important than voting.

The educated crowd feels there is none worthy. All the parties and politicians are the same. It’s better to watch a Movie. Go on an outing with family, then go and vote.

Finally, these people are commenting on the decision on freebies and electricity tariff raise. You do not have the right to speak if you haven’t done your bit to bring in a leader who understands your basic concern.  If not a problem solver, not a problem creator either would have been a better choice.

We don’t have Buddhas to lead us. But definitely, we have the wisdom to choose between Shivaji Maharaj, Chandragupta Maurya and Aurangzeb. History has given us at least the fundamental wisdom to do so.
