Huzurabad bypoll: 10 reasons Rajender won the David vs Goliath battle against TRS


Active member
Acouple of days before Huzurabad constituency in Telangana went to the polls in the high-stakes by-election on October 30, several women staged a protest in at least two locations. Their angst was that they had not been bribed yet.

It is ironic but true that a large part of the electorate in this festival of democracy no longer chants `no development-no vote'. Huzurabad's brazen `no cash-no vote' slogan is the harsh reality of Indian elections today. No wonder the by-election was labelled as `buy' election given how the cash flow threatened to put previous infamous attempts to bribe voters to shame. The going rate ranged from Rs 6,000 to even Rs 10,000 for a vote, with liquor also flowing like water.

This anecdote is important because the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) had forced this bypoll on Huzurabad by sacking Health minister Eatala Rajender, compelling him to quit the party and his MLA seat. The K Chandrashekar Rao government's allegation was that he had violated the law of the land by occupying land meant for the weaker sections. The ruling party accused Rajender, who was till the other day one of its leading lights, of corruption and tried to take the moral high ground on clean politics.

The protest by the women voters in Huzurabad showed exactly why the strategy to label Rajender as corrupt did not work.

In India Corruption is not a dirty word anymore.

Corruption is not the right word according a Govt. employee. "Fast Sevice Charge" is the right word. Otherwise you have to take your turn among 1.36 billion people both real and in other states.
I think, such news do not add any thing to uplift us.

Reality does not have to be uplifting, it enlightens us.
Natural calamities occur and are reported, it is NOT uplifting.
But we can not hide under the bed and deny it happens.

Corruption is like ‘termites’ — PM Modi justifies tough approach.

Government taking steps to uproot corruption: PM Narendra Modi

So if corruption is not a bad word then why the Indian PM is fighting it?

In an unscheduled live televised address, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that within weeks the ₹500 and ₹1000 banknotes would become worthless. Prime Minister Modi framed this so-called “demonetization” policy as part of the battle against corruption and illicitly-obtained “black money,”

If corruption is to be accepted was Modi Misleading Indians with his policies? I do not think so.
