Democracy is
all about
of common
people (aam

elections to
choose their
representatives. For
decades, elections have
been fought on myriad
considerations, prominent
being caste equations.
Campaigning always
involved beating one's
own drum. It also had a
strong element of
character assassination of
the opponent. But the
clinching factor was last-
minute distribution of
money and liquor among
the electorate.

were tired of this kind of
politics. They were tired
of the representatives
they chose for
governance. The national
capital required an Asiad
or a Commonwealth

they were really tired of
was the all-pervasive
tentacles of corruption. It
had drastically reduced
the percolation of
government funds for
ground level
The anger and frustration
among commoners could
not be fathomed by the
two big parties —
Congress and BJP. While
Congress lived in its own
make-belief wonderland,
BJP thought the support it
got nine months ago from
Delhiites during the
general elections would
carry it through the
assembly polls.
