अखिलेश को सलाह

अखिलेश यादव के मुख्यमंत्री बनने की सुगबुगाहट के साथ ही उन्हें मीडिया ने सलाह देना शुरू कर दिया है। उन्हें फर्स्ट पोस्ट ने सलाह दी है कि राहुल द्रविड़ की तरह बैटिंग करना। महाभारत की तरह अखिलेश को पहला विरोध घर के भीतर से ही झेलना पड़ा है। आज इंडियन एक्सप्रेस के एसपी वर्सेज एसपी शीर्षक सम्पादकीय में अखिलेश को सलाह दी गई है कि कानून व्यवस्था को सुधारना होगा। सम्पादकीय में लिखा है कि  The emasculation of the superintendent of police was a defining feature of the last Mulayam government. In what has been described as its “goonda raj”, the independence and efficacy of the police administration was systematically chipped away to ensure political bosses held sway. For the aam aadmi, if he fell out of political favour, there was no recourse as the thana was virtually outsourced to ruling party toughies and strongmen. When Mayawati was voted to power in 2007, her mandate came riding not on the back of the innovative “social engineering” attributed to the BSP chief, but on the widely shared revulsion against a regime that

आज टाइम्स ऑफ इंडिया ने Fathers, sons - and some others शीर्षक से जो टिप्पणी की है उसमें खानदान और परिवार को केन्द्र में रखा है। इस चुनाव में बादल परिवार, नेहरू परिवार और मुलायम परिवार मैदान में थे। सामान्य भारतीय इसे नापसंद करता है पर राजनीति में परिवार सफल हैं। टाइम्स के अनुसार  We Indians love our families - and our politics. Logically then, we can sometimes mix the two up - hence our enduring passion for family politics! From the pre-historic Mahabharata, where Kaurava and Pandava cousins dramatically broke bones over gaddis, to the here-and-now, when television soaps portray gleaming mums-in-laws pitched against glittering bahus. ..Take the Badal clan in Punjab. Although the family's main branch made history in recent polls, becoming the first incumbent government re-elected to power, they had to slug it out with disaffected relative Manpreet Singh Badal. Power revolving around his cousin and Badal heir, Sukhbir Singh, Manpreet left the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) in pouty sadness, starting his reformist PPP - which was so anti-populist in tone as to fall off the popularity charts itself....Voter attention was certainly captured by the Congress's first family campaigning busily in UP. Unfortunately, that attention didn't translate into votes. But we got an eyeful, with Rahul baba first paratrooping in, followed by sister Priyanka. Definitely no Behenji, Priyanka described herself as a barsaati mendak, a seasonal frog appearing occasionally. If my sister's a frog, so am i, declared Rahul with a straight face. What does that make Robert Vadra then?...There's just one political group not singing that number after these surprising elections - the Samajwadis, where son Akhilesh wrested victory for pitaji, sorry, netaji from the shadows of stone statues clutching power like handbags. Akhilesh rallied voters round with promises to deliver develop-ment over identity politics and instability. As the dust settles, let's see if what papa kehte hain about the lad is true - or if this turns out to be yet another family drama.

आज टेलीग्राफ में रामचन्द्र गुहा का विधानसभा चुनावों पर लेख प्रकाशित हुआ है। इसमें उन्होंने अखिलेश के लिए देहाती डायनैस्ट शब्द का प्रयोग किया है। इस लेख का हिन्दी अनुवाद हिन्दुस्तान में देखा जा सकता है। कतरन पर क्लिक करके उसे बड़ा कर लें।
