31st March 2013 was Delhi CM,Sheila Dikshit’s 75th Birthday and while the party workers celebrated her birthday , the one who may have ordered the cake was unsure of her age and hence a small goof up !! Small ??
The Pakistani army together with militant groups, had infiltrated the Indian side of LOC (areas of Jammu and Kashmir controlled by India) and captured strategic locations of the area including Kargil. Indian forces had to face many casualties yet Kargil was won back by India and due to International political pressure , Pakistani troops were forced to leave other areas they had entered,as well!
Even Pakistan lost many military lives and more importantly had to face world criticisms at all levels.General Musharraf is considered the mastermind of the Kargil Operation.India and Pakistan have had their reasons of conflicts since independence yet people from both the countries,ideally,prefer a peaceful co-existence, at least , now ! It would be interesting to see the performance of Musharraf in Pakistani General Elections. It would better define if the Pakistanis prefer his ideologies or not . It was easier for him last time to over throw the then Prime Minister-Nawaz Shareef and become the President himself. Winning elections and getting back governance of the country may not be a cake walk , this time !!
While,Sri Lanka claims the war to finish Tamil terrorism and issues related to it are its internal matters and that US has no rights to intervene, India’s voting against Sri Lanka is bound to tense relation with its small yet strategically placed neighbour(which shares healthy relation with China and Pakistan) . Interestingly,Pakistan voted in favour of Sri Lanka.
Beni Prasad Verma , the much controversial Union Steel Minister,who once belonged to the SP(now in Congress) had previously accused SP supremo ,Mulayam Singh of having ‘terrorist connections’ in a rally. This had created a big chaos in the House as well where Mulayam and Beni,attacked each other verbally. Beni did not seem being sorry about his statement while SP demanded his resignation from his post as a compensation of their supremo’s insult from the government. Meanwhile,DMK(an ally of current government) quit the government over the Sri Lanka issue which could cripple the government if SP (which is supporting the UPA government from outside) takes its hands off due to Beni’s statement !
Recipients will soon be warned by HP not to tamper with the BIOS to remove the politicians’ photos- they will stay on screen for five seconds.(You just cannot help it !) 😀
Do not think its a gift from the government.The laptop is government property and selling it, misusing it or destroying it can lead to legal consequences.(Its more to remind you that its the SP which availed the laptop to you for use only. Be thankful) 😀
Prime Minister,Manmohan Singh, has sent a strong warning to Italy to send the two Italian marines back to India who are facing charges of killing two Indian fishermen . With orders from Supreme Court of India the two marines were allowed to go back to Italy for attending elections and were scheduled to be coming back within 22nd of March’13. While the Italian Foreign Ministry has declared that the marines won’t be sent back to India for trial, all the pre-assurance from the officials of the country to the Supreme Court of India stood void. With the opposition targeting the government for being ‘soft’ on the issue because it has to do with Italy , PM Singh probably had to warn Italy of ‘consequences’ if the marines are not returned !
Looks like,the issue is bound to take up a big shape soon. Till then India should be celebrating that our PM has broken his silence at last and its a clear message -” Don’t Angry Me” . 🙂
