Power & Politics / Mail Today, August 09, 2010

MAKING political predictions is a difficult task. Ask the psephologists. The task gets even tougher should you be brave or foolish enough to predict the moves of the Gandhi family.

Last week, in Parliament and the corridors of power, inside TV studios and in newsrooms across the country, one question was being hotly debated by politicians, journalists, opinion makers and those who like to be known as just analysts: Why were the Gandhis keeping a stoic silence when the government was being hauled over the coals by the Opposition which suddenly seems to have discovered a spring in its step? While the Prime Minister and his A- team were under fire for multiple failures on the price front, Kashmir, Naxalism and now the Commonwealth Games fiasco, both Sonia and Rahul were nowhere to be seen. Even Prime Minister Manmohan Singh refrained from making a symbolic intervention. The Gen Next, once the Congress’s in- house shoutdown- the- enemy brigade, kept a low profile while the UPA ministers and AICC functionaries, rather than taking on the Opposition, were busy settling scores with each other.

A brief interaction with the ruling party’s many Mr Know- alls in the central hall of Parliament last week has now convinced me that the Gandhis are aiming to make drastic changes both in the government and the party establishment. The dilemma that faces them is: How to wield the axe without spilling much blood.

The exercise is expected to start next month with the re- election of Sonia as the Congress President, a mere formality. She would then become the first Congress leader to hold the post for over a decade without a break. After Indira, Sonia remains the only Congress leader in more than four decades to steer the party to a second consecutive victory in the general elections.

In the party, she shares with Rahul, now the most popular leader in the Congress if not the country, a veto power that no other Congress functionary has. I understand that they are giving finishing touches and waiting for Parliament’s monsoon session to get over to effect a massive shake up aimed at revitalising the party and the government.

The objective is clear: Four years from now, the Congress must win a majority on its own. To raise its current tally from the current 206 to 272 plus, the party has no option but to concentrate on Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, West Bengal and Karnataka and choose leaders who can make a difference.

Manmohan Singh Experience has taught the leadership that it is not the performance but a perfect connect with the local leaders and voters that is vital to ensure victory. At the moment, there is an utter lack of compatibility between high- profile ministers and senior party functionaries.

Party leaders have for long lamented that, with the disconnect that exists between the government and the organisation, it is difficult for the latter to carry the message across to the grassroots. I am told some of the senior ministers who command respect may be moved over to the organisation with a view to make Congress ministers accountable to the party. Armchair strategists who wax eloquent at seminars and TV debates may have to give way to those with a readiness to face the heat and dust and take the rough and tumble of Bharat.

So far, Rahul has studiously stayed away from the politics of the parent organisation even as he energised the Youth Congress to make it a parallel power centre.

The genuine competitive elections for Youth Congress officebearers that were held across the country at Rahul’s directions were, in reality, talent scouting exercises that brought thousands of new workers into the party’s fold and threw up hundreds of hugely talented men and woman who have both the drive and vision.

While a shake- up in the party was never expected to pose much of a problem, getting rid of the many non- performing ministers was not that easy. Plans earlier for a purge of the old order were met with stiff resistance from the well entrenched. This time, they may not have an option. Congressmen in general know that they have a lot of broken promises to keep. But it is perhaps only Rahul who acknowledges that it is probably the last chance to convince voters that they are worthy leaders ahead of 2014.

I do wonder why Pakistan asks for only Kashmir. It should have demanded that they should get the whole of India as it has 20 crores Muslim population, thousands of Muslim majority villages, Kashmir is a part of India and most appropriately India was a Muslim state ruled by Moghuls till British takeover the nation by force. So Muslims has first right on India and Pakistan should get it. We will support its demand as we have lost all our hopes and we have no option left as our people are lazy, impotents, peace-loving, patience, passive and weak. If China would take over India by 2020 it would be welcomed by Congress as in that period it would be under stress by its misrule and anarchy and chaos all over the country.
We cannot make it a Hindu majority country as our rulers were themselves clandestinely worked in support of Muslims due to their nefarious liaison,designs and attributes. First our leaders have accepted the partition on communal lines of the great country, Bharat for which we have got two enemies in our neighbourhood, one is China and another is Pakistan. If our leaders wouldn’t have accepted the British Conspiracy to divide a great and large country into three parts then they would not have succeed in their conspiracy and for that they have used Nehru. Although Gandhijee and all other leaders were against the formula of partition on communal lines but lord Mountbatten and his wife had enticed Nehru to accept the formula and the country was partitioned in which lakhs lakhs of people were butchered, lakhs of women were ravished,lakhs of kids were made homeless and orphan. So what do we achieve with so much hatred and colossal loss? The Freedom we see is facade and meant for only rich and political leaders. If Nehru would not have accepted the partition then the country would have emerged as one of the largest,developed country in world unchallenged. But the Christian conspiracy played havoc. But our leaders failed to understand the conspiracy. The roman Catholics have a clever and clear vision in which they have succeeded by sending one of their ladies to India to marry the prince Charming of Indian emperor.Rajiv’s marriage with Sonia Gandhi was a pre-planned conspiracy by the roman Catholics to make India as a Christian country. Now her son is also in the footsteps of his father and married one Roman Catholics girl.
We need to understand the conspiracy of Islamic fundamentalist and Roman Catholics. If we would not be awakened we would be in dire straits one day. BJP,RSS.VHP are the only Hindu organisation which is fighting for Hindus only and all other are fighting for the loaves and breads offered by the colonial forces. The ARMY,AIR FORCE AND NAVY ARE also in deep resentment by the policies of the UPA govt which shows them in poor light.It is most highly condemnable that the Media is highlighting smallest of errors on the part of our COAS and all other military officers. We have full support to the media if they found any grave crime or design by our military but by shouting loudly all over the media for smallest of errors and mistakes by any of our army officers, chief of staff’s they are not doing any good to the nation and also not good to them. It is dangerous trend developed in Media supported by UPA govt in which the army is being dragged to infamy. This would endanger our democracy and we would be in peril.
Media should be aware of the fact that army cannot go to media for rebuttal of the allegations against them and the Govt seems to have encouraged the media to put blames on Army to demoralise it. In sukhna lake land allocation case the media had done more harm to army. In the Malegaon blast, samjhouta express blast case also it had damaged the army by giving concocted and fabricated media reports through CBI to media .But our media is controlled by some NGO’s who are controlled by Christian Groups churches and also petro dollars of Arab countries.Indian Hindus were slaves, are slaves and would be slaves of these Christians and Muslims for ever.

India was plundered by Islamic terrorism since time immemorial. The Muslim invaders invaded India and plundered all its wealth. All the wealth from the temples were looted and taken away by them. India got some breather from invasion after Moguls ascended the Delhi throne. They had made India safe by their strong fighting skills and warriors.The Mulsim invaders came from Persia and Iran.When Britishers came to India to do trading with Moguls were weakened by internal divisions and British soon captured the last mogul and imprisoned him and banished him to Rangoon (Burma) which was also a territory of British.
Although British had also plundered India of its wealth during the period of East India company rule, but after the queen take over the rule by sending governor general to India, the east India company rule was stopped.
That British had won over all the major areas and included it into the British Colonialism. At last India was united under the British rule which would have been never possible as the Muslims had never dared to get all the small states and areas under them. All the 600 odd princely states were merged to British India and the British had appointed political agents for all the states.
All these shows that Hindus were never a fighter clan and force. They were betrayed by their own clan and people. If Hindus would be a fighter clan and force they would have never been under subjugation of all these Moguls and British. After we got freedom at midnight of 15th August 1947, we think that our good fortune has come and we would live a decent life free from corruption and subjugation but that was a mirage. All the British Civil Servant’s role was taken over by the Indian Civil servants who lead a lavish life style with unbridled power and absolute hangover of British India.All the British officers,generals,governors and agents were replaced by the present day Minister,CM,PM and their chamchas.
That there is no difference between British rule and Present day democratic rule.The conspiracy, under hand dealings are as they were. Only difference is that we call ourselves citizens of a Sovereign,free,democratic,secular,independent,republic country.But we have not replaced all the laws,rules,acts etc which were run by British to administer the slave India.We have the IPC and CRPC made by them. We have fabricated our constitution by copying the same from the British Constitution. Our leader never had the inkling that the constitution of an island cannot be suitable for a country like India whose population may be 120 crores by 2000.We are suffering all the problems of discontentment among states, corruption, regionalism, nepotism, terrorism, minority appeasement for votes and vendetta politics.


Now we cannot cry if our officers and ministers are found involved in corruptions. We are simply watching them savouring crores of our taxes by falsified and fraudulent method,bills,invoices.Our media which had brought Indira Gandhi to her knees is now kneeling down before her daughter-in-law.so shame on our media which is crawling before her, when she had asked them to bend.

Why the educated Muslims are are brainwashed by the Jihad terrorism and turn to violence?
This question is highlighting all but there is no answer to it. These boys who are the eyes of their parents gets good education and gets good jobs in India’s best companies get to terrorist activities and turn a potential bombs. Why it so and what can be done to check the slow poison.
In Hyderabad recently one driver of the best IT Company of the world has been held by police on the suspicions of being a potential bomber. What would he gain by killing innocent Indians and may be some foreigners of that company ? Is there any answer among the so called secular media personnels and politicians. Many boys from minority and Muslims are turning terrorists as if they can create havoc among Indians and take their revenge. What revenge they want to take on innocent Indians. They are digging their own graves. They are slowly being outcastes in all the recruiting agencies who do not want to employ any Muslims as they fear that the person/boy or girl may be a terrorist and may cause harm to its credibility and company.Also they lost all the trust with the security agencies of India who donot want to recruit them only with an apprehension that they may betray their faith.So it is the lack of faith and trust for all the muslims which would lead them to more unemployment and poverty.
That apart from all these apprehensions it is also true that after any such incidents police gets track of that accused and goes after him which leads it to that company which employed them. So none of company in India and foreign are going to recruit any Muslims be highly educated and uneducated. They would suffer the curse of unemployment by their behaviour and antecedents. The Muslims as whole have to accept the fact that due to the misdeeds of s few misguided and disgruntled elements who are brainwashed by the jihad terrorists through internet,CD,DVD and pamphlets with video clips of Gujarat riot.
That it is also true that by the acts some Muslims all of them are now feels isolated and being blamed as traitors to the nation. They cannot hold their heads in high. Their credibility is lost by misdeeds and anti national acts of some few Muslim boys and clergyman. It is not a good symptom. It caused alienation of all the Muslims from mainstream politics and people. They cannot hold their heads in high out of shame and fear.
But who would teach the all these. Our Media is silent in this aspect and watching degeneration of them and alienation of Muslims in the Indian society. It is true that all people in India are equal and not having any such status of second class citizen’s, albeit all the Hindus in Pakistan are having a status of second class citizens and the temples and gurudwaras of Hindu and Sikhs are demolished and occupied by Muslims .They enjoy as much freedom as any majority clan gets in our country. But the trauma is that they themselves remained in their cocoons and fails to accept the facts.
It would be better if the Muslims of India gets a awakening and change their attitudes. They can get their credibility and trustworthy ness back if they would assimilate themselves with the mainstream and society. They can very well change their own fortunes if they would start to check the boys going to jihad and also hold their heads high. APNA GHAR JALAKE TAMASHA DEKHNA BANDH KARO.Hindustan hum sabka hai.This should be ultimate motto of all the muslims.They should not be made scapegoats of crude politicians who are using them as sacrificial goats.
