BJP or Congress: Not for the people

With 2017 Manipur legislative Assembly just few months to go, blame game between rival political parties, particularly the BJP and the Congress is reaching its peak. The strength of the third force is yet to show up but, establishment of new political party base on regionalism concept is something that the political analyst of the state needs to have a keen eye.
With leaders of both Congress and BJP playing its cards with different issues, some voters who are to elect them are observing them through eagle eye. The massive victory of the BJP in the last Parliamentary election about 2 and half years ago and recent toppling of Congress party at Assam by BJP government and the loss of faith to the congress high Command by the legislators of Aruchal Pradesh which compelled to chose a regional Party to form a non-congress government with BJP supporting from outside is a vivid example of the decline of congress party. On larger context Congress party is in deep trouble across the country. In South India the nomenclature Congress is very unpopular that even the symbol are less seen in the city of Chennai, Hyderabad, Vikshakapatnam, Kochi etc.
Congress party’s stronghold Delhi is now rule by anti corruption force AAP and almost all Northern Indian state have supported either the BJP or the regional Party. For example, the heartland of India Uttar Pradesh has hardly any room for Gandhis led Led Congress Party as Muyalam Singh Yadav and Akhilesh is far more popular. Yet, over all across the nation it is the BJP that majority people have considered right in handing over the rule of the nation.
However, the BJP which is appreciated for its credential across the nation seems to act rather in a different way when it comes to the state of Manipur. For example, When narendra modi become the prime Minister of India he promised to complete the Imphal-Jiri portion of national Highway within 100 days and it is now 2 and half years that the condition of the road is in the most deteriorated condition. When asked about the unfulfilled commitment, one of his Ministers in charge of HRD, Prakash Javedkar, who is also in charge of Election for the party in this state, blamed the state government saying that the state authority did not cooperate with the center. One knows how far the Union Minister, in-charge of Manipur election is taking the matter seriously as it is on record that the state government’s proposal to hand over the construction work of this portion of highway which is not more then 5/6 kilometer length.
Another thing which is serious is that, even though the BJP government talk taught about developing the  rural areas including the interior hill district of the state, soon after the coming of BJP in power at the center, any form of grant or package for the ADC has been cancelled. Even the ADCs – the only local bodies of Hill areas in the state, no award has been made under the 14 Finance commission. On one hand, rampant corruptions being noted to the part of state authority are being ignored by the BJP.
Where has the promise to take action against those involved in the Loktak scam? Another shrewd game is the issue of the NSCN-IM. Time and again the leadership of the NSCN-IM has been stating that the Government of India has finally understood the problem of Nagas and by signing the “frame Work Agreement” the NSCN-IM and the government of India is arriving at a final solution. Why the government of India keeps on repeating that framework Agreement is nothing but a skeleton agreement? What is wrong in letting known the content of the frame work when the BJP led Government of India is sincere enough to the people of the state. 
From everything that is seen in the undeclared war to topple the congress government, it is an open secret that other than from toppling the Congress government by getting large number of MLAs, BJP indeed has no interest to the issue of the state.
While saying so, Okram Ibobi Singh which led the congress is in no way better. His dictatorial attitude, disrespect for human rights, the practice of VIP culture, the high level of corruption and not the least the mass recruitment of employees in government department when election is just few months from now showed that another government led by him might be a dooms day for the common people who do not have relatives in the government.
Sincerely , Election 2017 is appeared as not for the people but for the power hungers.
