Role Reversal

In most places, the sons/ daughters and other family members of a chief minister or minister would take undue advantage of their senior’s position (Papa Kahte Hain, Apr 9). In Uttar Pradesh, a father is taking advantage of his son’s position and ruling the state by proxy.

 It is heartening to observe that the decades old conventions have been broken in UP after the recent elections. We had earlier seen the sons/daughters and other family members of a politician/minister/chief minister taking undue advantage of their senior's position. However in UP, the roles and situations have seemingly been reversed- now a father has been taking advantage of his son's position and ruling the state by proxy. It's time for Akhilesh to assert and perform by himself to come up to the masses' expectations.

"The feeling is that Akhilesh would not have allowed this if he had had his way."

As if...Akhilesh is Mulayam with a younger and suave exterior. His chief ministership is no different from Manmohan's prime ministership. Everyone recognises where the real power lies.

 So much for a party that says it swears by Social Justice and Lohiaite Vision... Ram Manohar Lohia would be turning in his grave on seeing all this.
