    you are right, indian politics is real and messy but also very young.

    and uttar pradesh is possibly the messiest one.

    you are also right that the result will have national consequence. but with immediate effect and not only around 2014.

    one of the reasons , the economic reform in india is in the back burner is one of the coalition partner in the central government is against it. samajwadi party has 28 MPs in the center but they are not part of the coalition government.
    so if samajwadi party does well in UP election and if congress also get respectable no of seats there, then there will be deals.
    congress will support SP to form government in UP and SP will support congress in center.
    and the stalled reform may very well start.

    It is true, the very reason for this is the flow of illegal money, which takes care of all the needs of local people.

    Politicians feel comfortable to buy votes and support from public by spending this money.

    Good citizens find difficult to fight this mafia infected society.
