A Mammoth Win: the Responsibility, Accountability, and Promises to Keep

Posted on the 16 May 2014 by M Shekhar @politicscope
The mammoth win of BJP itself [and the allies, of course] has implanted the hope in the citizens of the country. The impetus was on DEVELOPMENT and waiving out the CORRUPTION during campaigning.
However, it is not known now that how the words and practice will balance each other. During
the campaigning period and again Narendra Modi was compared with the eminent personalities and leaders of the country .These hopes and expectations have handed Modi  the towering responsibility.
Promising the citizens to provide a peaceful atmosphere is not an easy task. If the government really wants to do any favour, it should take the task of curbing the towering price rise primarily. It has badly affected the aam aadmi.
In his tweet Narendra Modi has said that India has won, Achchhe din aane wale hain [Days of goodness are about to come]. Following him as was during the campaigning, it could be taken in different mode - as was in the ‘Neech Rajniti’ imbroglio.
The questions which might be raised are: Is India the BJP? Are the other parties and their followers outsiders?
It is significant that the Central government can not make any excuse about the allies’ likes and dislikes. The government is expected to pass the legislatures for the welfare of people instead of
increasing the salaries and allowances of the lawmakers. It is not so easy to rule the country because of its hugeness. If it is so then it should be though in prior. It will be considered just as a lame excuse.
As a matter of fact, the activities of the government will respite the people not the words. The task of the government is to prove  the saying again ‘Achchhe Din Aane wale Hain’.
Instead of playing blame game it should take the task to be done. Whilst - the responsibility and accountability should be maintained smoothly.
The despair after shedding hope and trust makes one ferocious. Neither would get the next chance. The people are being aware of the circumstances day by day. Tasting the historic win, has got many
things to do simultaneously.
