Italian Marines accused of killing Kerala fishermen not to return for trial

Released after 105 days in judicial custody under strict bail conditions and assurances from the Italian Government, the two marines of an Italian Navy Vessel Protection Detachment (VPD) accused for killing two Indian fishermen from Kerala,mistaking them as pirates,are not going to come back to India for the court trial as announced by the Italian Foreign Ministry. 

They were released to travel to Italy in February, this year, to vote in national elections and now Italy has put on stake the diplomatic relationship with India by dishonouring their commitment to Indian Supreme Court of  letting the accused marines back to India for trial.

The Indian Foreign Ministry looks speechless( as mostly expected) and the Indian government has stated the act is ‘not acceptable'(as usual and as if saying this would make any difference to Italy) . The opposition has been accusing the Government of being ‘soft’ on the issue. Why ?  🙂

Italy not to send back marines to India charged for Kerela fishermen murder

While, some may argue,it is a shameful act on part of Italy to falsify its own assurances but it also speaks about the kind of importance they give to their citizens and for which they have gone to the extent of giving forged assurances and risking diplomatic relation with a country they have been friendly with since decades. Two Indian lives were taken by two Italians and it would really be important to know if our administrators are as bothered about us (be it,after our death) as much the Italian Government is bothered about their lives !

Or Like the opposition,even you accuse the Indian government of being ‘soft’ on the issue ?  😉

Just out of the topic , the Indian government could win awards for using two words most frequently, to address any issue- We Condemn (say …if there is a terror attack ) and the second is -Its Unacceptable (say…if Pakistan denies its hand in terror attacks ) . Can we have some serious actions against nations taking India so lightly ? Please ?

 

Modi served legal notice for calling PM Night Watchman

A Congress leader from Bangalore has sent a legal notice to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi asking him to apologise and withdraw his remarks calling Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh a “night watchman” of the Gandhi family !

😀  Just a thought !

What will happen at Congress Senior leader,Digvijay Singh’s office if he starts getting legal notices for passing remarks.He never spares passing remarks (derogatory,mostly,not always 😀 ) anyone who dares standing against Congress ? 😀  He would become an undisputed back to back record holder of most number of legal notices for passing remarks . 🙂

Super Rich to pay more taxes – Budget 2013-14

While the ‘Aam Aadmi’ seem to have been spared by the Union Finance Ministry,F.M. P Chidambaram, has put the burden of charging 10 percent extra levy from 42,800 Super-Rich Indians(individuals and corporate) who earn more than 1 crore per annum. While some refer this budget as the ‘Robin hood Budget’ many claim the budget was prepared keeping 2014 General Elections in mind !

The corrupt politicians surely do not fall in this slab  😀  as they do not earn that much !  🙂

Guess,’King Of Good Times’ – Vijay Mallya,is still in the Special 42,800 list,after the Kingfisher Airlines mess  ! 😀

Bristish PM David Cameron denies giving back Kohinoor diamond to India

Kohinoor,the 105 karat diamond which is among one of the largest diamonds in the world and is on display in Tower Of London was taken away from India by the British during the colonial era.While,India has been requesting  it back since decades , today the British Prime Minister declined any chances of the diamond being returned back siting his disbelief in ‘returnism’ and that the country is anyways taking care of it. He also visited the Jaliawala Bagh and declared the incident of 1919( where the police opened fire at unarmed civilians killing and wounding 100s at the Jaliawalah Bagh) as shameful.

Minority support to Modi ?

BJP won 47 out of 75 seats in municipal corporation elections. BJP aka Narendra Modi ,in Gujarat,with 24 Muslim candidates who all won it for the party, clearly indicate that even the minorities understand development would mean nothing but supporting Narendra Modi. Difficult to analyse if the Muslims of the state have actually forgiven Chief Minister Modi for the 2002 riots or it is just that they do not have any option but BJP if they seek to progress . With Congress which had won town elections for decades ended up winning none, the message seems clear.
