In India, politicians are not to serve us or society. They are to rule. As people identify with a politician, the more thuggish he is, the more powerful he is seen as & the followers too feel powerful with him. 'Apna neta aisa hai'. Psychological effect. It has several benefits..
for the leader. As his image is that of a ruffian, short-tempered man or a don, not everybody would approach him to get works done or for overall betterment of constituency, improvement in services. No expectations. 'Raw power', the feel of it, is enough. That he represents us..
'We elected him...our MP or MLA is a strongman..' The strength gets into followers. Symbiotic relationship of a unique kind. Further, if he belongs to your own community, caste, naturally you feel more powerful as well as content & a feeling of pride. #Politics #India
Being civil, polite or trying to solve problems doesn't help because the grievances are plenty & it's impossible to solve them or even bring about a change in even a city. Rather, such a politician is seen as weak and misfit in politics. Be as crude, as hateful as you can...
If you are a real thug & got image that anybody who dares mess with you, will have his business or career ruined, or slapped in public or get framed, then you're a true politician. Public gets things done by paying bribe. but real authority is a person who can break all rules
Be a politician who is feared. Be a #politician who is not answerable to anyone. Be a politician who is thuggish & whom no one can make fun of & if someone does it, he is beaten by cadre. Then, people really respect you. Unfortunately. Unroll @threadreaderapp #IndianPolitics
@threadreaderapp Don't be a politician who is there to listen to your grievances, who is like a common man, who is affected by deaths, calamities, people's pain. Someone who doesn't need to even bother if kids die in hospital, then, he is seen as someone really powerful, ruthless. Gets respect.
