News about AAP’s Varanasi Rally Today

Most Indians by now have read and come to know who Arvind Kejriwal is, what AAP stands for and its firebrand sense of political dispense. But greater, Varanasi, on the banks of the well-known holy Ganga River in Uttar Pradesh, India is a spiritually significant city not just in Hinduism but as a spiritual destination. Ganga Ghats inspire millions of devotees to do pilgrimage and take holy baths in the sacred river.

Based on this backdrop a new brand of Indian politics (AAP), the city is witness to a game of strange turns and fortunes in the ongoing 2014 Indian general election.  AAP rally for referendum on Varanasi seat and staking claim to challenge leading political heavyweight’s Narandra Modi. Politics has always been christened as a game or riddle of strange bed fellows.

AAP’s chief and as a new political party in Indian politics would not occupy center stage of the ongoing 2014 Indian elections without alluding to this catchy phrase. Rajnarain Smarak Park, Beniya Bagh, Varanasi today opens a new stage. As the sacred Ganga opens tremendous emotional quotient in the lives of ordinary marginalized for hope of their identity not being drowned out in the course of elite political debates. Perhaps this referendum like approach which worked to precision in New Delhi assembly polls might just as well strike home here.

With symbols as humble or down to earth as a broom, this strikes a chord for many of the illiterate and poor for robust and better access to political fortunes. There is that which begs a rational analysis of what the exact political ground looks like. The relevance will await the voters casting ballots and taking a call on their destiny.
