I am feeling happy for Mulayam Singh Yadav and Akhilesh Yadav for their victory in the 2012 elections with thumping majority of 224 seats out of the total of 403 in Utter Pradesh, the largest state in India. The main reason for my happiness is that Mulayam Singh an ex-school teacher from a small village of Utter Pradesh has ascended to one of the most powerful administrative authorities in India. 

I am not a member of Samjvadi Party headed by Mulayam Singh, nor did I do any canvassing for them. Nevertheless, I am feeling enchanted with the very fact that a man from humble background is going to rule the largest state of India. 

Most of the other Indian politicians in common, occupying powerful posts in governance are from wealthy elite families and many of them belong to the dynasties of ex-kings, ex-zamindars, ex-jagirdars, Rao sahebs and other village heads addressed with different royal names. 

People still address them as Maharajs, Malguzars and Jagirdars etc in spite of the fact that kingdoms and Malguzari system were withdrawn decades back. The Indian political field has been dominated by the ex-kings and ex-malguzars who have been ruling Indian people for many generations, directly or by proxy on behalf of Moghuls, British and inland invaders. Now also they are ruling the Indian people. I wonder whether we have really become an independent sovereign republic; in spite of the fact that the proxy rulers have not changed. 

Mulayam Singh Yadav had more than a couple of stints as the Chief Minister of Utter Pradesh. He also served as the Defense Minister of India. I am expecting excellent work to be done by him in the forthcoming government he is going to form in this week. 

It has not yet been decided whether Mulayam Singh Yadav will hold the prestigious chair of the Chief Minister of Utter Pradesh or may appoint his son Akhilesh Yadav for the same job. Yet, it is sure that both of them will work in coordination in the process of governance in the time to come.

The main election campaigner and the spokesperson of Samajvadi Party, Akhilesh Yadav has unambiguously declared their anti-criminal policies by denying tickets to the old heavy weights with criminal backgrounds. He has also made it clear that criminals and goons will be tackled sternly and a vigilant eye will be kept on such elements that use Logos and flags of Samajvadi Party on their vehicles and indulge in criminal activities. 

Samajvadi party has won the election based on their merits and reaching out to the common people by widespread intensive campaigning. There have not been any reports of defying the guidelines specified by the Election Commission of India. 

I wish all the very best to Mulayam Singh Yadav, Akhilesh Yadav, Samajvadi party and the party workers for a smooth and successful tenure of their government.
