CM’s rapport with people needs to be stronger

Tuesday - September 11, 2018 11:43 am , Category : MADHYA PRADESH

WTN- With the elections round the corner, every political party has started pitching in with grand rhetoric and the clichéd rounds of allegations and counter allegations. 

But perhaps the greatest stake at the hustings present is that of CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan. Notwithstanding his good work of 14 years at the helm, like every leader he too has to carry the burden of anti-incumbency. How big the factor crops up as an election issue will have much to do in deciding the fate of the present government. 

Whether Chouhan’s charisma emerges as the strongest force in his favour may not be certain but one thing that lends him an edge for certain is the weak opposition. 

The Congress still has not its home in order. Their roadmap is unclear and leadership squabbles rife that keeps the party internally weakened. In contrast, Shivraj has strong party baking and the men stand united. This enhances his and his party’s credibility in the minds of the people. The Congress may try to pull a fast one by cashing in issues like farmers’ unrest or fuel price and rub the government on the wrong side by playing up the weak links, but they are not enough to dent the image of the government that has served its people for close to two decades. 

The CM still stands unblemished of any scam or scandal, which is not too common in today’s politics. But Shivraj Singh must not rest on his list of achievements and the weaknesses of the Congress. As the wind changes direction, people change opinions. The past is forgotten fast. Any ruse can tilt the balance. Politics is a dicey game and unpredictable results pop up. The CM has to enhance his outreach and connect with the people on the ground. The discontent as seen in patches may snowball into a bigger revolt if the grassroots coordinates are not strengthened in time. Sections of farmers and the common man are certainly not too happy with many things and their concerns have to be addressed. 

Blaming the Congress for everything may not be a wise idea. It may in fact benefit the Congress because the old story has lost its sheen and excessive excoriation may align the people emotionally with the Congress.  It is better to strengthen one’s own roots than finding excuses for every lack. The CM has to be more constructive with better packages for the people. He will need to travel more and get closer to the people to regain the weakening trust. It is good that that the 

CM said his detractors were also the people of his state and he had no ill will against them. Such kind of inclusive stance makes the cut. People are much informed today. They see and know and catch the drift early if their CM is really serious and concerned about their needs. The CM has to show his concern by taking concrete actions that directly benefit the people. Grand schemes don’t always ensure grand victories unless those schemes are really working on the ground. The government needs to pep up the development initiatives and finish the plethora of long pending projects in time. 

The CM will need to walk the talk and go the extra mile to ensure that. Only then people will repose greater faith in him. Otherwise, the battle this time will be a tough one.
