The shabby way the Government has stalled Baba Ramdev's fast, with the foul mouthed Digvijay Singh taking center stage is a bad strategy that could cost the Congress dear. The Congress led Government does not seem to understand the mood of the Nation which can be defined in simple terms as "People versus Politicians." The rise of Anna Hazare or a Baba Ramdev taking up cudgels against the government shows only 2 things -
(1) there is no political leader in the country to reflect the thoughts and mood of the people and
(2) the people are clearly angry with the way the Government is running for the corrupt, by the corrupt and to shield the corrupt.
The Government and Congress do not seem to understand that people as a nation have matured as thinking people, thanks to the huge proportion of youth forming the populace who can not stand the 3 C, caste, corruption and communal politics which is what the Congress stands for - thereby making Congress the 4th C making it fit to be thrown out.
There is no way for the people to show their distrust in the Congress and its governance other than backing up any person who comes forward to provide a platform to express people's disenchantment with the establishment. The Government may be thinking that it has 'successfully' stopped Baba Ramdev today, but tomorrow some one else will come up because such is the frustration running across the country.
The centre of the storm is the Congress party which is not showing any sign of improvement in its commitment to check corruption.
The foremost examples are its truck with the DMK and reluctance to reveal black money holders. With the Congress not understanding the mood of the Nation which wants a clean and honest governance, we are likely to see more and more agitations cropping up in the coming months.
The only message from the people is - : "Behave well or else leave".
