I know why it might sound strange to say that there is a complete dearth of political environmentalists at this time, at least in Uttar Pradesh. Had there been a politician with such a calibre they would have been able to understand which side the camel will sit.
After all, late Ram Vilas Paswan was the only of our last, true political environmentalist. His political activities were enough to confirm this particular trait in him.
Why does this extraordinary quality lack in our present-day politicians? Why do they reject this premise? If the gurgling water has feelings, can the political leaders be far away from their political feelings near the polls? However, their able attention focuses upon the vote turning mastery on such occasions.
Are our deft leaders not be compared with dispassionate speculators? They seem flawlessly good with this attitude. They all but seldom think of leaving the political profession. They always want to remain natural at it.
Punjab presents a picture of political chaos in the Congress party while Chirag Paswan, son of late Ram Vilas Paswan, made an impression with his smattering parts in Bihar politics. But how can it be defended that Akhilesh Yadav moves with massive support in UP politics?
Then, would Owaisi be greeted as a political leader of the capability that made late Paswan notable? Owaisi happens to be a social media darling and his speeches quickly match the level of attention he was getting among the old and young alike in Uttar Pradesh.
