Currently young Indians are looking at nominating a government that provides them with a better education system, women centric policies, employment opportunities and better economic growth and therefore will have a key role to play in the upcoming general elections. Tune in to IBN-Lokmat from Monday to Friday at 7.30 pm and the following day at 11.30 am to know more about what young India wants from the newly elected leaders of India.

Indian Politics, although a fight for one of the largest democracies in the world, exhibits a myriad of characteristics right from Nepotism, dynasty rule, corruption, scandals, policy paralysis and new party formations. As India gets ready for the upcoming General Elections of 2014, IBN-Lokmat, through Youngistan Zindabad takes a look at what the youth of India think about issues like prevalent nepotism, Dynasty rule, women empowerment and their own expectations of the new government.

Politics in India is plagued with widespread nepotism and Dynasty rule as currently India’s ruling party, The Indian National Congress is a result of the Gandhi Family’s Dynasty rule with Sonia Gandhi and now her son Rahul Gandhi also continuing the tradition. In Maharashtra, Bal Thackeray’s son Uddhav Thackeray continues to bear the flag of the Shiv Sena Party. Nepotism or favouritism often puts relationship above merit and this can prove extremely detrimental. The Indian People especially the youth have now realised the implications of Nepotism and want to elect leaders based on their Merit and credibility rather than their association with powerful families.

Women participation in voting as well as elections is another major requirement for India. There is an old saying: behind every great man stands a great woman.  Let us consider a revamp: how about behind every great nation. Presently, women are found in almost all spheres of activity right from politics to fashion to social work and even in the corporate world. Therefore women participation even in electing lawmakers is very important as it is their votes that will give them the passport to equality and safety. Due to many rising issues on women safety, and empowerment political leaders are promising women centric agendas and policies. If women especially from rural areas step up and register to vote then their votes can help select a government that makes policies and laws that will help every Indian woman move towards literacy, safety and modernization.

Most of the Media sources like newspapers and news channels are all busy in debating which major party will emerge as winner with praises being sung for Arvind Kejriwal leading the Aam Aadmi Party, Narendra Modi, Prime Ministeral candidate of the BJP and Rahul Gandhi, leading the Indian National Congress. Each Party has their own strengths and weaknesses. As India debates on which party will make a better government, IBN-Lokmat unveils the views of the youth on different parties contesting the elections.

Tune in to IBN-Lokmat from Monday to Friday at 7.30 pm and the following day at 11.30 am to know what Young India feels about Nepotism, Women participation in the elections and their views on the different contesting political parties only on Youngistan Zindabad.
