YSR to pack his bags?

Everyone seems to be so obsessed with the results coming in tomorrow that it becomes so difficult to avoid discussing politics even if I hate all that empty talk. The TV channels have made this a great Indian circus. Got to live with this, I guess. So what’s in store tomorrow? I have a gut feeling YSR may pack his bags and go home here in Hyderabad while Sardarji will be back in the saddle at the center. If not my gut feeling, this could be my wishful thinking!

Apart from a better conduct of elections in AP (thanks to state election chief IV Subba Rao and DIG AK Mohanty) we may have one more good news, if things go right. And that is JP winning from Kukatpally! The groundswell of goodwill for him was blindingly clear. If he pulls it off, atleast I would not be mightily surprised. It would be, hopefully, then be an eye-opener for the media to focus on some meaningful talk of JP rather than flashing no-brainer breaking news all through the day. It is time people realize not always does meaningful talk go down the drain. And a JP win does that.

Coming back to YSR, his solo show, I thought, was such a big gamble. I wondered how audacious (rather, foolish) he is to up the stakes so high only to loose. The disgust and awe (simultaneously, think of it!) among the common public towards his ruling despention was so evident. Some folks' guess is that he wont manage even 100 seats for his party. Quite wishful. It would be a heartbreaking miracle even if his party (make no mistake, it’s his party here in AP, his fief, not some Gandhis’) finishes as the single largest one. He is definitely not the lesser devil of the two (or three)we have. And for the primeministership, despite his shortcomings, I like to think the Sardarji is the best we have. Hmm, lets wait and see…

Hi,
At central, I too wish the same sardarji would be good. But, at the state level, I wish we have someone other than YSR.

Lets wait and see...
