BJP’s MODIfied Obama styled campaign.

BJP's MODIfied Obama styled campaign.

The BJP’s landslide victory in the recent General Elections have been the fruit of the tireless efforts of the party’s PM nominee, Shri Narendra Modi.
But somehow, you can’t overlook the similarities in Obama and Modi’s campaigns.
Obama is a very good orator, highly energetic and accepted by the public as the symbol of ‘change’. Same goes with Narendra Modiji.
Modiji was nominated as party’s PM candidate to suit the style of campaign which originally President Obama had adopted in 2008.
Obama promised change for the American people after USA was struggling with economic crisis. So did NaMo in 2014.
His (Obama) addressed to the people in a very direct manner and so did NaMo.
Namo talks of the pride of the nation and the pride of the Armed forces by targeting Pakistan’s activities on the border. Obama lured the army men by assuring the return of US forces from Iraq and Afghanistan.
After the win, both the leader thanked the public for their support and gave speech on how they are going to ‘revive’ the nation.
Both leaders were proactive on social media, making direct contact to youth and spreading their word through the internet.
There are many more similarities including Obama’s famous slogan ‘Yes We can!’, but the credit goes to NaMo for the aggressive campaigning.

ye kaashi hai

लाखों भक्त जहाँ दर्शन के अभिलाषी हैं
वहां माँ गंगा फिर क्यूँ रुआंसी हैं।
इस शहर का भी माहौल यूँ तो सियासी है
मगर ये तुम्हारी सियासत का अखाडा नहि
महादेव की नगरी ये बनारस ये काशी है

Election aya! Election aya!

Election Aya! Election Aya!

waadon ke pulinde laya!

humko isne khub bharmaya

khel kisika samajh na aya!

 

yun to ye sakht daur garmi ka hai

lekin yaha to mela besharmi ka hai

Suraj ko dekh Neta bhi aankh dikhaya

Election aya! Election Aya!

 

is kalyug mein zuban hi shastra hai

man maila tan sundar vastra hain

Shikaari ne phir se apna jaal bichaya

kyunki Election Aya! Election Aya!

 

deshbhakt tum sambhal ke rehna

matri bhakt tum sambhal ke rehna

saapon ne phir zeher hai dikhaya

2014 me Election aya! Election Aya!

Extravagant Elections! India votes!

The world’s largest democracy is put to test as it needs to elect a government for itself which can take her to the path of development and glory which she ought to be on.

The showbiz, the marketing, the advertisements, the speech, the rallies, the roadshows. Too much to look forward these elections as this time it is not just a two way fight.

With an eye on the ‘neo middle class’ people, Aam Aadmi Party has jumped into the General Elections. As it’s National Convener highlights again and again that ‘removing’ corruption is their primary target, AAP has provided the progressive people of India a third ‘promising’ option.

With BJP’s Namo Namo call, they hope they can ride on the wave and get clear majority in the lower house, which this nation hasn’t seen since the 1984 general elections when late Pm Rajiv Gandhi won 416 seats for INC riding on the sympathy wave after Indira Gandhi’s assasination.

INC on the other hand has been pushed against the wall. They rely on Rahul Gandhi’s speeches which are thought to be ‘youthful’. With Manmohan Singh retiring, he could be the scapegoat for taking the blame of all the scams in the UPA regime. The only thing INC can do to get votes is by propagating the ‘secular’ word.

The talks about polity is over, let’s talk about the other side of these general elections, the MONEY been flown like water.

BJP on one hand is using Technology like 3D holograph to reach out more and more people, INC has not changed it’s conventional way of reaching the masses.

Massive budgets are allocated for marketing and advertisements. Whether it be ‘Bhaarat Nirman’ or ‘Abki baar Modi Sarkar’, political establishments are trying to lure voters with ‘chunavi lollipops’.

But where does this much money come from? The Election Commission keeps a check on the election budgets of parties but still there are cases when Black money is involved.

With parties turning down this claim, there is enough room for doubt. As India have progressed into the 21st century, the 67 year old young nation has developed a sense of what is politically correct or incorrect.

Therefore, I leave it up to the voters’ discretion that use of black money bothers him or not. After all these parties will only run our economy after they get elected.

But don”t make it an excuse to not to vote. It is a hearty appeal to people of India especially the youth to go out and vote.

Because your vote is NOT your right as publicized by the ‘Netas’ but your duty, your obligation towards the future generation of this nation who is getting younger as it grows old.

Jai Hind. Jai Maa Bharati.
