The year 2014 will witness an election which to some extent will be a watershed for the country and its democracy.

Since its Independence on August 15, 1947, Indian democracy which is regarded as the largest democracy in the world has been proving itself to be the best democratic experiment anywhere in the world. The way democracy in India is grass rooted deeply is in itself a proof of how big a part, the people of this country can play in shaping its fortune.


After the current Lok Sabha completes its term on May 31, 2014 the country will gear up to face the 16th General elections since independence. The previous general elections, to the 15th Lok Sabha, was conducted in April–May 2009. The year 2014 will witness an election which to some extent will be a watershed for the country and its democracy.  


Since last many years corruption in higher offices has become an issue which cannot be missed out by anyone while discussing about India and its politics. The massive movement against corruption that began in 2011 under the leadership of Anna Hazare and the Aam Aadmi Party’s victory in the Delhi Assembly elections has galvanized the young population for political participation. Since the last two general elections, the 10 years of Congress led UPA rule witnessed various scams which had their adverse impact on the social, economic and political advancement of the country on national and international fronts. One cannot miss to mention the irregularities in the Commonwealth games, Adarsh Society scam, Chopper Scam and 2G scams all of which involved senior ministers and higher officials of the ministry.

What makes 2014 General elections different from previous electoral battles?


The run up to the 2014 General elections has been witnessing a drastic change with voters becoming more and more mature in their voting patterns. The recently held Assembly elections in different states also witnessed the way anti–incumbency voting which threw those governments out of power who were not able to control increasing corruption and red tapism in the official system.


Inflation and problem of unemployment, increased taxes on commodities, heightened rate of criminal acts and rapes, series of corruption scandals are key issues which have displeased Urban India to a great extent and can be a challenge before the ruling government in upcoming elections of 2014.


Slowdown of economy also has made the Indian Middle Class worried thus forcing it to vote in a different manner with a feeling that a change in the government will result in betterment of the economic woes and that rampant corruption will also be checked.


Both the Centre ruling Congress and the opposition BJP are putting their best efforts to galvanize the Indian public in their favour through the new media. The first decade of 21st century has seen rapid advances in the form of technological revolution with Internet and social networking sites playing a big role and shaping up the ideas of the people.


This trend is something which was not as prevalent during 2009 General elections as it is now. The best example can be the success of newly formed Arvind Kejriwal led Aam Aadmi Party in the Delhi Assembly elections for which the credit also goes to the social media driven campaign.


As far as the opposition BJP is concerned it has projected Gujarat CM Narendra Modi as its Prime Ministerial candidate and it is speculated that the Congress will also name party Vice President Rahul Gandhi as its PM candidate very soon. The 2014 electoral battle is turning out to be an issue based electoral battle which is bound to make the political parties especially the ruling ones more accountable towards the common man and towards the redressal of his grievances. In the last few years through their surprising voting patterns, the Indian voters have made the politicians, cutting across the political parties; realize that they cannot take them for granted for long.




As India reels under so many social and economic problems, the people of the country are looking forward for the 2014 general elections with the hope whoever comes to power, will ultimately work in favour of the masses rather than just for the party’s interest. The rise of Aam Aadmi party has kindled a ray of hope in the Indian middle class that a change can easily be brought if we cast our votes carefully keeping our problems in mind.
