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 ?
TMC supremo and key-ally of UPA government, Mamata Banerjee had stated on Thursday that she and SP head,Mulayam Singh Yadav were steadfast in their support for Dr Abdul Kalam as the next president . However, on Friday the SP extended support to Pranab Mukherjee’s candidature. Mulayam Singh Yadav has been known for changing decisions, at the very last moment,many a times in his political career and this time it was Didi, the leader known for sticking by her words,on the suffering end! The TMC has termed Mr Singh a Traitor and has recalled that they still support Dr Kalam for the Presidential Candidature.
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!
