Akhilesh Yadav, national president of Asia’s largest socialist party, Samajwadi Party and former Chief Minister of India’s largest state, Uttar Pradesh is a true Democratic Socialist.
How do we define a genuine mass leader as the Democratic socialist?
A Democratic Socialist is not a Marxist Socialist or a Communist. A Democratic Socialist is one who seeks to restrain the self-destructive excesses of capitalism and channel the Government’s use of our tax money into creating opportunities for everyone, as much as Special Opportunities for socially and economically underprivileged segment of the Indian society (OBC-SC-ST).
Democratic Socialist believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically–to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few.
A Democratic Socialist doesn’t want to destroy private corporations, but does want to bring them under greater democratic control.
The government could use regulations and tax incentives to encourage companies to act in the public interest and outlaw destructive activities such as explorting jobs to low-wage countries and polluting our environment.
Most of all, socialists look to unions to make private business more accountable.
Socialism: Using the outputs of society for the benefit of society.
Capitalism: Exploiting the outputs of society for the benefit of the wealthy.
Charismatic socialist leader and former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Akhilesh Yadav does understand the difference between Socialism and Capitalism.
His model of development is more triumphant and inclusive than hoax called Gujarat model.
