Rahul Gandhi has recently visited yet another Dalit village near Allahabad , where he had gone to inaugurate a cancer hospital for children. Seems like he is determined to attract Dalit Voters away from BSP ! Although the last state elections did not yield him any result when he had similarly visited several villages addressing and assuring to relieve poor villagers off their problems,if elected ! Nothing worked for him then ! Wish him all the luck in his yet another attempt . 😉
Almost 19 states had to face the worst nightmare of no electricity for several hours with about 300 trains hit by the major grid failure ! The Power Minister ,Sushil Kumar Shinde , had somethings to be proud about , one he compared India to America where he claimed it takes upto four hours in similar cases while they took lesser time and astonishingly enough he was promoted as the Home Minister after P Chidambaram has been appointed as the Finance Minister! All this happened yesterday, on Tuesday, when about 600 million Indians from north and north-east India were experiencing major load-shedding bringing normal life to a stand-still. Even on Monday, a day before, northern states suffered for several hours due to grid failure and even Delhi , the capital of the country was not spared !
Considered close to the Gandhi family,the media anticipates this as a major reason of he being handed over the Home Ministry! He has,anyways, thanked Prime Minister,Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi for his promotion. 😀 Well, now that Mr. Shinde has been promoted as the Union Home Minister for his ‘greatest achievements’ of creating history, all we can do is pray for nation’s well-being and pray his Ministry does not make it to the Headlines due to wrong reasons ! 😉
It is one of the most critical moments for the Finance Ministry and P Chidambaram has been given the responsibility who has a real tough task ahead!
After, a 25 feet deep and 400 mt. long tunnel along the Indo-Pak border in Samba district has been recently discovered with oxygen pipe inside,the BSF has declared this as a new way of infiltration ! BSF is working out to findhow far the origin of the tunnel is, in Pakistan !
What a ridiculous idea Sir ji ?
Narendra Modi,the Gujarat Chief Minister, who is being accused of playing a major negative role(accused of promoting violence against minorities) in the 2002 riots of Gujarat , is looking for a makeover of his image.He has suggested several amendments in law, right from electoral laws (to boycott candidates with records of communal violence)to laws of punishment for people spreading and involving in communal violence ! How decent ! 🙂
Vijay Darda, the Congress MP, has been facing severe criticism and media attention since he praised Gujarat Chief Minister, Narendra Modi , in a religious function attended by Mr Modi and Baba Ramdev along with Mr Darda. He addressed Modi as the lion of Gujarat and a religious saint. While the media and even Modi noticed his words and also commented that he is worried about how Congress is going to react listening to this statement from its own MP praising Modi !
As expected , once the news spread like wild-fire Mr Darda was seen busy explaining and justifying his statement for Modi and that he never referred Modi as a religious saint.He gave a funny reasoning, that addressing Modi as a lion was to criticize his involvement in 2002 riots of Gujarat and also to indicate BJP (and RSS) are held hostage by Modi in Gujarat(the political parties he belongs to).
No matter whatever points of sarcasm he may come up with , it is clear that he was actually praising Modi by addressing him as the king of Gujarat as that is what we mean when we use lion and tiger words for an individual!Funny is, all political parties are so scared of losing their reputation (which either ways none have) and their vote bank that they end up mocking themselves by defending or criticizing such small incidents !
At two different places in Uttar Pradesh , Dr B R Ambedkar, the Dalit Icon’s 3 statues were vandalized by miscreants but new statues were installed at the earliest by the state administration to avoid any controversy !
Well, if this continues , SP government may end up spending more in replacing statues , than what Mayawati government had spent on the making of statues of herself , dalit icons and her party symbol ! 😉
Ram Gopal yadav,General Secretary of Samajwadi Party declared Shahid Siddiqui was not a part of the party and that he left the party long back to join Lok Dal and appealed Media not to mistaken him as part of SP ! All this happened after he took interview of Narendra Modi , Gujarat Chief Minister, for a Urdu Newspaper , as a journalist(Siddiqui is a journalist as well) where Modi claimed if he be termed guilty in the Gujarat riots of 2002 , he would not mind being hanged. Anticipating the interview might indicate probable upcoming closeness between SP and BJP, the party preferred to clarify that Siddiqui was in no way associated with the Samajwadi Party ! After all, how can SP risk the minority vote bank ? Had the political parties been more bothered to impress voters with their work rather than connecting to their religious and caste related sentiments , shape of Indian economy and overall progress would have been completely different ! Anyways, is their anything wrong in performing the job of a journalist as a member of a certain political party and interviewing someone from the opponent party ?
Dare anyone criticize the Government in front of Digvijay Singh or Salman Khurshid ! Be it Mamata Di, Anna Hazare or Baba Ramdev , Digvijay has never missed any opportunity to take dig on any of these and many others who seem to be accusing the government . In the recent past, Union Law Minister, Salman Khurshid seemed to be added in the team of ‘Unofficial Speakers of Congress’ and now he misses no chance criticizing Team Anna in the media !
Well,is it right on part of leaders of national level popularity to indulge in such activities at the risk of their repute ? Do they not understand that in the process of counter-attacking Team Anna and referring Baba Ramdev as fraud they lose their own gravity ? Is it necessary to contradict people just like that ?
After Anna Hazare’s announcement of a new political party, among the most expected Congress leaders to comment and dare Team Anna where Digvijay Singh and Salman Khurshid ! 😉
