UP candidates interview discussion related to state

edited December 2014 in Interview Preparation
Being UPite, we are expected to answer for more or less all types of social, economic and political questions.
Let this thread be more informal so that we can freely discuss issues concerning UTTAM PRADESH. :)>-

  • We may also discuss sensitive issues of communalism, casteism, politics, religion.
    I remember one guy being asked... What kind of impact ppl like Raja Bhaiya have on UP youth?

    So we should discuss informally.
    Freedom of speech should be respected but we should not hurt others deliberately.

    Great thread..considering the size, population and problems of our state a healthy discussion here would be awesome.

    Let's start with the communal tensions in UP and what possible solutions can there be for it?

    Being a sociology student, oderwise an engineer, I see communalism as a symptom of fight for scarse resources. Communalism becomes problematic when ppl start seeing oder's interests as both different and contradictory to theirs.
    However, UP also has some historical reasons behind communal violence.
    I personally dont c many solutions possible till v start developing economically and till our politicians are forced to lure voters on their development agenda than theor religion or caste. I dont see dat happening soon.
    Sorry, for this pessimistic analysis but its just out of hope in UP that I suggest a long term view.

    Various important question...
    I think electricity production needs some expert opinion which wud require some research. So cant coment at dis point.
    At the level of distribution, UP is the worst performer in India. It has around 30% transmission loss(check).
    Also people dont pay their bills and believe in sustainable practices like katiyabaaji :D
    Kisi ko agar detain men pata honto please guide us.
    I lived in agra for some time. They have private distribution. Agrites please comment on its impact. I felt it was gud.

    Another reason for communalization of rural UP...most of the muslims are landless agriultural workers. In urban UP..they are mostly artisans and craftsman..so relative deprivation is huge and it needs a small spark to take the form of active hostility.

    Solution can be active development of the minority commununity on various HDI parametera.

    UP politics is highly divisive and caste based. The voters are seen as vote banks and treated as such, with election sops being announced and then forgotten. Some prominent leaders in recent months have made disparaging remarks about the communal harmony and equation in the state.

    Coalitions are often made on caste grounds. All this leads to representation of the erstwhile deprived section of society, which is good but in the long run it dividea the social fabric of society..which makes the rifts more glaring and does not bode well for a civil society.

    Higher intellectual inregrity on the part of voters and politicians is definitely needed in UP political landscape

    UP ka division in 4 parts...I feel it should be done keeping the administrative efficiency as the top consideration. Ulterior vote bank motives should not be catered to.

    Anything else in this?

    Politics plays an essential role in any democracy. In UP, politics has helped the deprived sections get a united political voice. Also, political class has aided bring harmony to the multi-religious society.
    However, political classes indulging in casteism, communalism and nepotism, has become a common phenomena. The result is widespread corruption and continuing caste and religion based violence.

    ....

    But how do we know whether smaller states wud b better governed widout actually breaking dem?
    There are examples of both small and big states doing bad or gud on adminsitration.
    Financial viability is also important. How wud bundelkhand survive?
    And more importantly, Perhaps UP's problems cud b solved only if we have a better politics, rising above caste and religion else we may end up wid 4 UP than 1.

    PS :: I dont have answers to these questions. So discussiong dem wud help us.
    And friends dont just post questions. I intended this to be an informal discussion thread. Please contribute more.

    @dprofane
    Regarding industrial status,
    Most of the investment goes to well off states like delhi and mh, leaving poor investment for backward states like Up. Thus, poor investment climate.
    Also, law and order, corrution, lack of political will combinely worsen the investment climate.
    Naturally, Up doesnt have rich mineral resources, thus no largescale core industies.
    Thus perhaos, manufacturing is the only possible area but for that excellent infrastructure and connectivity is req, which is unfortunately lacking.
    Oder issues have been discussed earlier. If u have some new points, please share.
