BJP, AAP hamein chahiye

There are a lot of marathon debates running across TV channels on who is better, BJP or AAP. My take is, let us not try to equate parties that are residing at either end of the spectrum. Both have their own agendas and are good in their own spheres. It is here that we as Indian nationals need to choose either of them based on the circumstances

BJP has been a party that has existed right from Independence movement and the contributions have been immense. It has provided to India visionary leaders like Shyama Prasad Mookharjee, Atal Behari Vajpayee et all. In recent times, visionary leaders like Narendra Modi and Arun Jaitley are striving hard to take the country in the right direction. We need leaders like these to lead the nation and to reclaim the lost fame and glory. These are the people who are master strategists, think long term and have loads of experience in administration and public policy

AAP is a recent entrant to the political sphere. What started as a movement against corruption has got manifested into a political movement, which common people like you and me can readily associate with. What really matters to us is ground level realities. For ex: Corruption at Sub registrar’s office, Bribes at every step in public life and etc. These are important issues that needs to be rectified and AAP had provided a ray of hope when they were ruling Delhi. People saw that hafta collection stopped and people did not have to bribe government officials to get the job done. This is a party that did not have any experience in running a government and deserved a chance

Whatever happens to the Delhi elections, I believe it would be good for India. If AAP manages to clinch Delhi, the people of Delhi would have a ray of hope and would look forward to see corruption free administration. If BJP manages to win, it would be another feather in the cap for Modi and the state would benefit from same party rule at center and state. This also translates to greater coordination between state and center

If AAP loses Delhi, it would be a question of survival and would have to be seen how can the party keep itself united. If BJP loses Delhi, it would be an eye opener/realization that one size doesn’t fit all. This also will have greater national implications in the way of non BJP parties coming together in an opportunistic manner

Both these parties deserve to be in power but in different ways and places. This will be good for us
