Arun Jaitley is confident that the Indian electorate will make the “right choice” by selecting a stable government instead of a “Mahamilawat Gathbandhan”. Jaitley also said that “the essential pre-requisite for accelerating our movement in this direction is that India must have political stability, a clear policy direction, a strong and decisive leadership.”
In a Facebook post, he wrote, “At the cusp of history, India and Indians have a choice to make. Are they electing a six-month government or a five-year government? Are they choosing between a tried, tested and a performing leader or a chaotic crowd of non-leaders? Is India looking at a government which accelerates growth, development and poverty alleviation or is it looking for a government made by persons who excel only at self-enrichment? I am confident that aspirational people of an evolving society will make the right choice,” Jaitley said.

Arun Jaintely also warned voters that similar coalitions in the past have resulted in total failure and that coalitions should be avoided at all costs. He wrote, “Who would want to invest in India in an environment of political instability? Would even Indian investors prefer to go outside and look for more stable countries for investment? Where there is instability, there is corruption.” He mentioned that a decisive and strong leadership is needed for accelerating progress and maintaining stability. This would also prevent corruption and steer the country in the right direction.

In a Facebook blog, Jaitely said that citizens will need to select between a performing and result oriented leader and a ‘chaotic crowd of non-leaders’. At this particular juncture, the vast Indian electorate has to select and pick from whether they want a 5 year government or a 6 month government. It is a time of decision that will impact the future of India.
