Industry Leaders On Transformation From “Slogan” Politics To “Action” Politics

Mint, 8 Dec : According to this story,  While grand electoral promises to woo voters and populism flew high during the assembly elections, analysts say the results indicate such promises may have already run their limits, with the rising aspirations of a young electorate and increasing political awareness taking centre stage. It captures the views of Industry Leaders like Ms. KiranMazumdar Shaw, chairman and managing director, Biocon Ltd and Mr. PankajBansal, Co-Founder & CEO, PeopleStrong on how electoral expectations are turning more practical.

“Electoral anger against Congress was strongly displayed. AAP showed that people can no longer be bought with dole and freebies,”chairman and managing director of pharma company BioconLtd.said in a post on the micro-blogging website Twitter”.

“Poverty alleviation slogans will no more work as an election plank, said PankajBansal, chief executive officer of PeopleStrong, a human resource and recruitment company. “We have to move from slogan to action. One must remember that not populism but growth and jobs resonates with people, especially the middle class.”

“Corruption, growth and job are the three real issues for voters. The assembly election results exactly tell you that,” Bansal said. “AAP leaders or BJP’s (Narendra) Modi talk about these actions where as others are talking about slogans and populism.”
