Current state of Indian Political Parties

UPA: Horrifying economics. Subsidies and bureaucracy that have collectively kept tens of millions in poverty due to lack of growth. Strong belief in divide and conquer and will play religion against religion and claim to be secular. Sophisticated thugs who are so deeply entrenched in the system that they almost can’t be kicked out.

BJP: A mix of right wing economics (which I believe is badly required today), guaranteed to spur economic growth and better for the economy of the country. Horribly xenophobic wing exists within the mainstream. Same wing tends to also be extremely socially conservative and will ruin social liberties if not kept in check.

AAP: A bunch of do-gooders with no concept of economics and politics. If you subscribe to the “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime" these are people who want to take the fish from the fisherman and give it to those who do not know how to fish but they won’t train them. Eventually the fisherman will move away and no one will know how to fish. Also, socially these guys are bending down to appease every ideology and voter bank good or bad. Great opposition maybe but will likely form a ruinous government in the long run. Will probably be much better as a administrator at a local level.

BSP / SP: Thugs. Extreme and unsophisticated thugs.

Shiv Sena / MNS: Borne out of a “locals first" sentiment but fundamentally thugs. A little more sophisticated than the BSP / SP kind but that’s down to their urban roots. Nothing more.

AIADMK / DMK: We don’t give a fuck about the country. What are you going to do for Tamil Nadu.

CPI: Outdated and destructive philosophy.

Trinamool: A demi-god with no administrative ability who came into power not so much for what she represents as what she doesn’t represent. No hope for bengal while the CPI & TC rule. Considering the land and the people this should be the most developed state in India. Ruined.

National Front / BJD / TDP / JD: Opportunists. Somewhat like local and a bit sophisticated warlords. They will do what it takes to stay connected to the center for local benefit. No unified philosophy or policy. Middling administrators at union level but know how to deal with local issues.

You can say “As a hindu”, or “As a muslim" or "As an SC/ST" or "As a poor man" etc and pick your poison. There will always be someone who has a valid point of view against you and a valid point of view for you.

I for one believe the future of India lies in sound economic policy and in not treating every community, caste and religion as separate. But I also believe thats the union has no business in recognizing or dealing with religion at any level. There is no one who represents my philosophy. Not even close. All I know is, we can’t stand 5 more years of UPA.
