Congratulations to the Grand Alliance, a coalition of the centrist parties banded together to save India from being taken over by the right leaning National Democratic Alliance led by the BJP. The Bihar assembly elections were fought in 243 constituencies, and winning coalition needed to secure at least 122 seats to form the government.
Congratulations to the Grand alliance, they are in the lead as of this minute, 12:10 Indian Time;
Democracy has won, and fascism is going to be gone.
Freedom is the most precious thing in every one’s life; it is so precious that it is worth fighting for. Indeed, that is the only thing I will fight for.
BJP lost because of their arrogance and they have a big lesson to learn – drop the Ahankar, shelve the arrogance and treat every Indian as an Indian. It is not Modi, but Modi’s evil silence that got them into trouble. The nation was burning, the freedoms were usurped, murders, rapes and vandalism were committed by Modi’s party, and he remained silent, as if that will bring him the ultimate – subjugation of the Indians who did disagree with his policies.
The essence of democracy is dissent, and the signs of fascism are conformity with complete control of the systems by an individual or a few individuals, and it is achieved by taking away your right to speak, read, write, eat, drink, wear and believe whatever your rights that are guaranteed in constitution.
The campaign was embarrassing, the biggest chumcha of Modi, who keeps Modi sheltered from News and what’s happening around him, and Modi himself was calling on the people of Bihar to be divisive. Indians are sick and tired of that rhetoric, for once they wanted to hear, we are all Indians and no one is less or better Indian than the others. That sickness transferred into people punishing.
We thank the people of Bihar for doing the right thing.
