NOTA (None of the above) is central to the culture of democratic politics because it articulates the possibility of dissent and points out the growing need for an alternative culture of governance where people matter more than ideologies and dogmas. Lokesh Tripathi
This year the election campaign in Gujarat had an element of surprise in it. The entire process of voter mobilization was not based on Hindutva politics or the promise of development however what took centre stage was the assertion of caste politics. The rise of Patidars under the leadership of Hardik Patel was a major factor to reckon with. With the resurgence of caste politics in such a dominant manner is the political landscape of the nation a fragmented reality?
