Punjab Elections-Liquor for Votes!

Election Commission officials have seized over 79 lakh litres of Indian Made Foreign Liquor during this poll campaign in Punjab. Nearly 3,60,000 bottles of country liquor were confiscated before being distributed to the voters. Another 63,000 litres of illegally distilled liquor has been seized.

Previously, 183 cartons of alcohol were seized from a truck in Akali Dal candidate Bibi Jagir Kaur’s constituency and hence she is booked for bribing voters. Another Akali Dal candidate, Swaroop Singla, also landed in trouble after organising a party for more than 200 people in a resort in Bhatinda, where booze flowed freely. Even Congress candidate from Jalandhar, Rajinder Beri was questioned by the media  after a sting operation revealed the investigating  journalist, posing as a voter, was  given a  piece of paper with a signature on it, when he asked for some incentive. All he had to do is show the slip in the nearby liquor shop to avail 6 bottles of liquor.

Cash and Liquor are the incentives given to vote in favour of respective political parties since long but its time the voters realize their moral responsibilities. Blaming the parties is easier but is it not a fact that if the crowd denies such unwanted incentives, this would cease to work for people who buy India’s future so cheaply.

We all want an honest government but when it comes to us, we become dishonest to ourselves. Its time we realize, Anna lies inside all of us and before supporting the Lokpal Bill we should support the Honest Human inside us which knows the difference between wrong and right clearly but ends up giving up infront of dishonesty.

Rahul faces shoe attack.Repeated incident in Dehradun

Are Shoes selling real cheap in Dehradun ?

Some days back it was Arvind Kejriwal and today, 23rd January 2012, its Rahul Gandhi who faced similar agitation where an individual hurled shoe at Rahul while he was addressing a rally there. 

‘After – Incident’ stories remaining the same where the accused got caught by the cops and political leader stated the incident as ‘unfortunate ‘ . The eye catching fact is , these incidents have become so common these days that even the News Sites do not bother elaborating the news and end it in a line or two.

Shoe Attack on Kejriwal

Beat Up ! Slap ! Throw Ink ! Throw Chappals and Shoes !

All these actions seem to have become a trend in our country . Are these self – motivated or well-planned opposition attacks? It is only the attacker who knows it best.

On Saturday,21st of January’2012 similar incident was repeated in Dehradun while Team Anna member , Arvind Kejriwal was heading towards the stage to address the gathered crowd. Identified attacker, Kishan Lal threw his shoe towards Kejriwal. His explanation for attacking was his response to insensitive statment given by Anna Hazare when NCP leader , Sharad Pawar was slapped. Well,such repeated attacks on Leaders from various walks of  life, seem pre-planned and politicaly motivated rather than genuine agitations.

UP Elections-Season of Promises

As the dates of U.P. elections are nearing by , the more is louding up the “Trumpets of the Elephants”(BSP), “the Rings of the Cycle Bells”(SP),”the Claps of the Hands”(Congress) and the Beauty and “Incense of the Lotus flower”(BJP).

Reminders of developments (so what ? if just the parks and the statues ) by the ruling party is getting louder.

Other contesting parties also recall the surprise visits , they (their leader) made by suddenly barging into farmers house(of course with the media) for dinner and pretending to be disghusted with the present conditions of  the farmers( as if , if they win, will give bungalows to the farmers ).

And some would not talk what they did and what others did not but directly come to the point that if they win the elections, what gifts can the citizens expect.

The embarassing fact about Political Elections in our country  is, we are made to choose between the Bad, Worse and the Worst and once we select best of the lott, it is the Bad Party which turns Worst and the cycle goes on!

Anna Hazare

A ” Marathi Manus” who is an Indian, first.

 Anna Hazare , the synonym to Anti- Corruption Movements in India may be viewed with different perceptions in and out of India however there is no denying to one fact that it is because of him India seems to be united again. There is hardly any bar of religion, sex, state and caste supporting his cause. Be it North Indians, South Indians, North-Eastern Indians or Non-Resident Indians, after a longtime there seems to be a leader who has made Indians forget the difference of state, religion and caste to a great extent. While some find him politically motivated supporting Anti-Congress Political Parties, most seem to be die-hard fans of him.

There has only been discrimination between commoners (sufferers) and the politicians and bureaucrats in India due to him. While it would be unfair to claim all politicians inIndia are corrupt but there is no denying that most of them are. May be, some do not loot us, off our hard-earned money which we pay as taxes but surely they stoop down to all levels to gain political superiority. Even the most decent of Indian politicians are mostly involved in provoking communal discomfort in the areas of their dominance and popularity.

Congress which claims to be secular keeps pointing out how much they are bothered about the minorities of India and that’s how they divide us. There are other parties who show sympathy towards specific religions,castes and specific language-speaking citizens (regional political parties). Point is simple, corrupt are those too who in some way or the other differentiate between Indians by showing sympathy on the basis of religion, state and caste.

 Well, Anna Hazare may or may not be politically motivated but surely he is a reason who made every Indian realize, he/she is an Indian first who is being continuously befooled by opportunist and/or corrupt bureaucrats and politicians of the country. Thanks to Maharashtra which has political parties like Shiv Sena and MNS who do not miss any chance to discriminate between Marathis and non-Marathis (hence divide Indians for political gains) has produced Anna Hazare who has given India a reason to turn deaf-ears to the communal and racists in the country.

Chinese Entering Indian Territory !

Who Dares  To Question The Chinese ?

At frequent intervals, the Chinese Army has been noticed  penetrating,  at least 1.5 kms – 7km, inside the Indian Territory including areas of  Arunachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and  Ladakh(J&K).

Secret note to the Minister Of External Affairs indicates , People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has intruded as many as 50 times , so far, from July till September, this year, into Indian Territory.
On Sep9’11, Chinese PLA vehicles were seen erecting some antennas 4.5 km deep inside the Indian territory of  Tunjun La area .

Chinese signs and drink cans, were noticed on Sep10’11, 4 km deep inside Indian territory,in the Demchok area of the boundary.

On August 15’11,  44Chinese PLA soldiers were noticed setting up tents and shelters 3kms, inside the Indian territory in the Asaphila area of Arunachal Pradesh.

On August 23rd’11,  2 Chinese choppers landed in Barahoti plains in Uttarakhand. Chinese soldiers got down  and destroyed about 16-17 Indian positions and defenses. They drew an inscription in Mandarin and inscribed a star on the rock.

On August 25’11,  some  PLA personnel were seen on horseback carrying weapons  moving through Barahoti.

Chinese intruded in Ladakh on August 25 ‘ 2011 – Two Chinese helicopters entered Indian territory on the morning of August 25 in the Chumar area of Nyoma, destroyed 17 unused Indian bunkers and painted rocks with the red star insignia of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). Indian bunkers were dismantled  and Chinese cigarette packets were thrown around to mark Chinese presence.
The Indian government and the armed or the air forces made no specific comments on the matter of Chinese incursions into Indian territory in Ladakh. The locals are upset with the government which seems helpless on such incidents.

In Uttarakhand, shepherds have many a times noticed strangers in the area who neither understand their language nor make their intentions clear. China has built new roads across the border that made such intrusions easier. The intruders have been crossing the line of control in newer places both in uniforms and in civilian dresses.

The hilly state of Arunachal Pradesh shares a 1,030-km unfenced border with China. The McMahon Line, an imaginary border now known as the Line of Actual Control (LAC), separates the Sino-Indian border along Arunachal Pradesh.The state government of Arunachal Pradesh has from time to time been warning the Centre about the Chinese incursions.Indian intelligence officials in 2007 reported Chinese-built mule tracks near the Kayela Pass in Arunachal Pradesh’s Dibang Valley district, bordering China’s Tibet region.

The Indo-China border dispute 

The border dispute with China was inherited by India from the British colonial rulers, who hosted a 1914 conference with the Tibetan and Chinese governments that set the border in what is now Arunachal Pradesh. China  never valued  the 1914 boundary known as the McMahon Line.

China claims 90,000 sq. km. — nearly all of Arunachal Pradesh from India while the Indian Government accuses China of occupying 8,000 sq. km of Jammu and Kashmir.

Incidents in the Past

  • The road construction work in the Demchok area was stopped by Chinese Army in 2009, on gun point.
  • In October 2010, The work on the development project under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGA), aiming at generating employment for locals in the Demchok area was also stopped after Chinese army threatened the workers.

 Interestingly, India and China have signed two  agreements – the Peace and Tranquillity Agreement in 1993 and the Confidence- Building Measures Agreement in 1996.

While these incidents are clearly alarming and question the intentions of Chinese army, who do we seek answers from, as concerned Indians ? Hopefully, not the Chinese Government !
