The test of every political system or activity is one, and only one : does it raise the standard of living of the people ? does it give them better lives ?
From that viewpoint, do the BJP victory in Gujarat, the Congress victory in Himachal Pradesh, and the AAP victory in Delhi in the recent elections, matter ? Not at all. They are irrelevant for the masses. Poverty, hunger, unemployment, price rise, lack of proper healthcare and good education, corruption, etc will continue unabated, and the result of the elections will make no difference to the lives of the people.
And yet our media is discussing nothing else but this. This shows that our media serves as another opium of the masses, whose object is to divert attention of the people from the real issues, which are socio-economic, to non issues and trivialities, such as elections in India
