The biggest news for the Modi government this year has been the passage of the GST Bill. It wouldn't have been possible had the Congress and other opposition parties refrained from supporting the government. To be fair to the BJP, the ruling party also reached out to the opposition and accepted their amendments on the bill. The question the nation is asking is why can't the government and the opposition come together and rise above partisan politics for the benefit of the nation? Why has a horrific gang-rape in Bulandshahr, Uttar Pradesh been questioned as a political conspiracy? What does the common man think when Delhi's Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal alleges that the Prime Minister is 'frustrated' and wants to 'kill him'? What happens to civility, decorum when BJP counters AAP by saying Kejriwal is 'delusional' and 'pathologically obsessive'? How degrading can our political discourse get? Can Indian politics rise above petty bickering and be truly constructional?
