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!

Raj explains attack on cbfc and Rahul Gandhi

Raj Thackerey in the news again ?

1.

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief – Raj Thackeray supported MNS members attacking  the offices of the Central Board of Film Censors on 14th November 2011 at around 4pm in opposition to the demand they made, months back, to the board, to include at least one Marathi Manus in the board to censor Marathi movies.

Is it not enough to know the guidelines and follow the same while judging movies ? Is it that important to include atleast one “Maharashtrian” from theatre or Marathi cinema ?

Well, supporting the move of his party members ransacking some offices just because they do not agree to their party’s request cannot be appreciated. Are there no other ways the MNS finds suitable other than voilent attacks , be it on the North Indian rickshaw  and taxi drivers or destroying  office properties ? 

Is Anna Hazare’s non-voilent methods of fasting and raising support not an example of better way of keeping one’s point ?

2.

Also speaking on Rahul Gandhi’s rally in Phulpur, Utter Pradesh, he claimed Rahul Gandhi was ill-informed about U.P.  after Rahul made a comment that for how long youths from the state need to go and beg for work in Maharashtra ,pointing at  the lack of employment opportunities in the state .

Thackeray viewed that the people of Utter Pradesh must ask Rahul what his party had done for the state in the past so many years for the state as every member of the Gandhi family, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and even Rahul himself  have been elected from UP and Congress party had got opportunities to rule the state for decades in the past. The question raised on Rahul Gandhi and Congress is worth giving a thought !

Is it right to claim the present government of Mayawati as the sole reason of sufferings in Utter Pradesh?  What about the governments prior to this ? Did the political parties prior to Mayawati’s BSP do their share of  work ?
