look for jobs Situation is terribleGandhi swears And whyhe rhetorically asks Becausehe answersthe poor people have not had a Congress government for 22 years Henceto better themselvesit is in the voters interest to grovel back to the Congress This last punchline was echoed in speeches by Sonia Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi My problems with the speech dont know where to begin Firstthe India Shining slogan is eight years oldand was an electoral taunt at the BJP in 2004 In 2012just like the Congressthe BJP is not an important player in UP It is fighting to not come last in the four-cornered race So who is the India Shining and the desperate poverty appeal aimed at To the Dalits and the poor who have finallyafter 43 years of Congress misrule between 1947 and 1990seen a major

conversationsthe voters in UP stated that if Bihar can have developmentso can UP and BiharRahul Gandhis speech-writers please noteis not only not ruled by the Congress but it is also the state in which the Congress reached the abysmally low level of 4 seats in the last assembly election in 2010 Alsoin order to win the caste votethe Congress brought out Sam Pitroda and embarrassingly and shamelessly displayed him as their OBC representative Lookwe have a major Congressite who is an OBC For the Muslimsthe Congress was even more retrogressive they promised them an extension of a very bad ideareservations Not much-needed affirmative actionbut discredited quotas in jobs and education Can somebody pump 2012 reality into the Congressrather than the

Akhilesh Yadav stressed the positives that come about with growthand emphasised that his party could do better And apologised for the goondagiri that so obviously prevailed the last time his party was in power I did not have occasion to watch any BJP leader speak presumably they stressed how rath yatras by their supreme leader bring about development by increasing sales of cold water The Congress obtained 22 seats in the 2007 assembly election and 100 equivalent seats in the 2009 Lok Sabha election Exit polls suggest that the Congress would be lucky to cross the 50 markand that the SPled by another youth leaderAkhilesh Yadavwas likely to obtain 160-plus seats and form the next government in UP If the exit polls turn out to be broadly correctthen the UP election might mark the beginning of the end of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty in Indian politics While the debacle in Bihar could be written off as a necessary aberration in a rebuilding exercisethe defeat in UP would not be that easy to explain To be sure50 seats are more than double the 22-seat tallybut are also half that of the 100 seats won in 2009 Indeedin their bravadothe Congress leadership has consistently maintained that they would get a minimum of 100 seats And rememberUP was the semi-final; howafter losing it by obtaining only 50-odd seatscan you enter the final Two youthful leadersboth belonging to political familiesfighting for their political futures In one cornerAkhilesh Yadavsounding modernand guaranteeing free computers to the young generation In another cornerRahul Gandhiheir to a 127-year-old

really not in being a politician Objectivelywho do you think best represents hope and development The choice is clearand it will be difficult to counter the impression that the Congress does not have a Gandhi leader capable of rallying India and winning elections It is possible that the exit polls are wrong and that the Congress obtains 75-plus seats on its own In this instanceemploying the same logic as aboveGandhi will begin to have credibility as a political leader And he can look forward to making a fight for it in the 2014 general election After the Bihar defeatUP will be seen as a major
