Faesal faces an uphill task

The IAS topper and former bureaucrat turned politician, Shah Faesal, recently stated that the main reason for him to join the politics was that he realized that bureaucrats are struggling with the system. His assertion that bureaucrats have to take dictations from the politicians sums it up.
Fasesal has been honest enough to declare that politics defines everything, especially in a conflict zone. Faesal during his brief stint as a top bureaucrat headed some vital departments but soon after he left his job he told a rally in Kupwara that he was not able to do much for the people.
The IAS topper, who had made Jammu and Kashmir proud, by securing the top rank, quitting his job came as a surprise for many people. But after saying goodbye to his job he opened up and cited many reasons for him jumping into politics.
One needs to appreciate Shah Faesal for his commitment to serve his own people and his desire to something for the masses of his homeland. But many people are of the opinion that as a bureaucrat he could have done a lot and served his people better.
Now, he has taken a plunge into politics and there seems to be no looking back. He has to prove his critics wrong. He has to work very hard to prove himself as he faces stiff competition from the traditional politicians and it’s not going to be easy for him to challenge them. Fasesal has already floated his own political party, though he did not field any candidates for Lok Sabha elections but he is bracing up for the Assembly elections in the state. As a youth icon he can pull younger generation towards his party and that could really make a big difference.
