V r not happy with the political set-up. By 10 years i believe the no-votes would cross 50% of electoral votes and the country would be on the verge of a revolution, its best the beuracracy prepares for such a situation and reform the constitution under emergency. I would propose a tri-party system based on ideals, interests and policies as leftist, rightist and centerist parties, and the rest being independents. This way the country would also have a hedge against political instability caused by regional parties and coalitions.

More than 260 million people do not vote in elections. Even if 1% of them were to vote for 49 O, it will send shivers among the politicians.

Aamir Khan says “if we do not want to vote in favour of one, we should vote against him/her.” But i want to ask him, by voting against one aren’t we voting in favour of another. how will that make any difference when they all think alike. WE SHOULD NOT MAKE ANY MISTAKE THIS TIME. PEOPLE, BRING THE REVOLUTION…WE HAVE GOT THE CHANCE. THINK twice before casting your precious vote.

But where would we go from there? Would the next lot of politicians be any better? How long will the voters exercise this option before giving in to the what they perceive as the lesser evil and avoiding a hung government?

What is more important is identifying, grooming and supporting the kind of candidates we want to vote for. The no-vote option can only be a stop gap arrangement.

If the election is the only time when the politicians listen to the people, then we should have the right to say them “get the hell out of here”
