Coalition Dharma and vote bank politics

Why the governments in power can not function efficiently?

If you think little hard, you will realize at the bottom of all this, is miss governance and coalition Dharma as our honest Prime Minister calls it and the vote Bank politics.

Of course, our PM or no politician would like to admit their vote bank politics they have been playing from the time of our independence, because it is a sly political strategy political parties follow, whether they want to accept or not. We have seen these under currents in many situations. In addition to these two reasons, there is a third reason too and that is more serious. And that is rampant corruption at all levels.

Let me elaborate here the situation as we need to see in perspective.

For example, the recent killing of J. Dey, the senior journalist. He was constantly working on the underworld activities and even wrote a book. His own intelligence must have been so collaborative and hard in substance that his "Expose" had to be a potential threat for many in our political circles, police administration and intelligence. His elimination by criminal minds and people who operate with the underworld thought it necessary.

What surprises is, J.Dey had all the information about underworld. But our intelligence and police don't  have. If fact, if police and our intelligence wanted to demolish the underworld, they could have used his information, worked together and succeeded in catching the local operatives in India who are working for Dons operating from outside.

Just imagine, one ordinary reporter can, with his intelligence, gather all the information on underworld and write a book, and our intelligence agencies  who have at their disposal all the resources including human and technical for intelligence gathering, can not?

I refuse to believe this. There is more than what you and me can see. and that is why the case is still not cracked and police are still clueless.This only reflects poorly on this government and the present Home Minster's ability as a minister to deal with crime and terror.

Three Bomb blast on 13th July was a result of this poor intelligence gathering and inefficient administration that works under Home Minister.

Some months back, there was a story about senior police officer involved in sex scandal. It was reported in the media that he is absconding? And after few days, there was a news, his body was found near railway tracks? Was that an accident? A suicide? Or was he eliminated? So that the sex scandal chapter got closed with his death and many names did not get exposed in the sex scandal? At the bottom of it, it is not incompetence of intelligence, it is largely corruption in the police and intelligence machinery.

This is again a question of accountability of the Minister in-charge.

The third case is of Maria and her boy friend Jerome who killed Neeraj Gorver mercilessly and for the gruesome murder, both should have been sent to gallows but got away with lighter punishment? Was it not a failure on the part of police machinery who gathers the evidence from the site and builds up the case for prosecution? What was it? The failure on the part of police prosecutor? The failure on the part of police to prove when tons of evidence was available? Was it a managed show? A perfect case of corrupt practices?

Now let us take the coalition Dharma that the PM is talking about.

As regards to coalition Dharma that the Prime Minister wants to follow very religiously, is also a part of political corruption that our honest Prime Minister is following. The shielding of A Raja, and Dayanidhi Maran was nothing but a corrupt practice followed by the honest Prime Minister.

Was it his honesty? Or his direct involvement in political corruption while following his coalition Dharma when the country is being looted?

On vote bank politics...

The records of Congress is very bad. When Afzal guru was to be hanged, Congress Chief Minister Gulam Nabi Azad told his leadership, if you hang him, there will be riots in our country. The terrorists, a criminal who is convicted and condemned by the judiciary with the judgement to hang him, Gulam Nabi Azad and many like him in this country got worried about their vote banks. They are more supportive of terrorists than the terror attacks on Indians.

People like Gulam Nabi Azad, Faruq Abdullha, Digvijaya Singh, Antule have made political statements of serious implication to give fodder to Pakistan and today Pakistan is saying boldly the terror is your own home grown phenomena and not as you constantly claiming coming from our soil. Because of irresponsible statements by these politicians, today Pakistan has turned tables on our sides to prove or keep shut.

Corrupt politicians like Ammar Singh and Abu Aazmi who openly support home grown outfits like IM and Seemi, are responsible for innocent Indians getting killed on the street. Where are they today? Not condemning the attacks? Once the smoke settles down,  there will be rush once by these corrupt politicians and human right activists to tell the world, don't not to point fingers at  people and organizations till you don't have sufficient evidence. They will tell us on in  TV channel debates, that they are innocent till they are proven guilty.? 

Now these human right activists and politicians like Abu Azmi don't think that all these innocents got killed and many may be lucky to survive may live like vegetables were also innocent people?
Have they visited the hospitals and the families who lost their loved ones? Have they ever? These are fake social activists who make their living on such insensitive political bias.They need to be condemned first because they don't even let the police do their job freely.

Is this not vote bank politics ? Then what is it? 

Dreaded terrorists Ajaml Kasab who killed many innocent people at CST  including children is  still a state guest at our cost. Even after court judgement, he is still not hanged. He is a terrorists who should be hanged in public square for other terrorists to know, what happens if they get caught. Why  is he been fed with Biryani at our cost?

And the most shameful politicians meeting him to ask if he is looked after well? Is he getting all facilities and has he any  complaints? What an utter disgrace?

Today, tax payers crores of rupees are spent on Ajaml Kasab and our Chief Minister and Home Minister Chidambaram are telling us in the press conference that due to lack of funds we are not as equipped as we should be? The terrorists are better equipped?

Dear Prime Minister, You are a finance expert,

If you stop spending crores of rupees on Ajamal Kasab and people like Afzal Guru who are fed by your government, that money will be sufficient to prepare intelligence and security forces to protect lives of innocent Indians. Don't you think?

Is his life important to you or hundreds of lives getting killed of innocent Indians?

Why are we getting killed in this Bomb Blasts because of your vote bank politics and coalition Dharma? Why are we not killing terrorists?

The innocent Indians are getting killed on the streets in terror attacks.  Because of your vote bank politics, your appeasement politics. The corrupt governance and administration at all levels are squarely responsible for so many innocent lives getting killed.

This is a war against terror the whole world is fighting. We don't need classroom lectures  from Rahul Gandhi, Digvijaya Singh and Chidambaram to teach us why you can't fight terror. If you can not, vacate the offices and let the able and competent take over to deal with this serious situation.

RR Patil must step down as his track record shows hundreds got killed because of his incompetent police and intelligence. He and Chidambaram must be held accountable. They are not in command to fight terror and crime that is on rise today all over India. They must quit by taking full responsibility for the failure of their departments. If their machinery is not working efficiently and if there is corruption, the heads are responsible for such a poor governance and therefore their heads must roll.

You can not mess up with serious issues. If you are not soldiers to fight on the mission, Step down. Quit. As simple as that.
Because, we are not ready to get killed. We are no more resilient nor brave anymore. When actually you lose your loved ones, your dear and near ones, these words are meaningless  and hollow.  They don't make any sense. They sound good in speeches not in real life.

Let all political class remove their own security around them like Rahul Gandhi, Digvijaya Sing, Chidamabaram, Kapil Sebal and many others who are enjoying security cover at our cost, then we will believe your word.  Let them first prove, we are with you in this fight against terror. We will believe it and take their word seriously.

We are not willing to die in this fight all by ourselves anymore.

Enough is Enough.

Who failed to protect the lives of Indians?

Home Minister P. Chidambram says : 
It is not a intelligence failure.

Rahul Gandhi says: 
Every bomb blasts can not be stopped.

The statements by Home Minister P. Chidambaram are insulting the intelligence of common man on the street and Rahul Gandh's statement is nothing but an insult to injury. 

These people move around with Black Commandos around them 24 X 7 at our cost and when it comes to our security they say, 

" we are doing our best to provide security cover to people at large. But you must understand, in places where there are crowded lanes, you can not expect police vigilance round the clock at every corner of the city."

Rahul Gandhi says, it is not possible to detect all bomb attacks by the intelligence. In other words, we can't provide you protection round the clock but we politicians will have Black Commandos around us 24X7 at your cost.

Isn't this an outrageous, insensitive and irresponsible statement?
For your information, Mr Chidambaram, Mumbai's every lane, road, buses, trains and railway stations are crowded all the time. It is unfortunate that our Home Minister makes a statement  which only shows that this government feels helpless and thinks fighting the battle against terror is hopeless.

The larger question is... do we have losers fighting the terror battle? 
 And if that is so, what business do they have to occupy Home Ministry?

We as a nation have witnessed 26/11. How casual approach and attitude was of our Home Ministers at both, center and state. Shivraj Patil and RR Patil, then Home ministers had miserably failed to stop 26/11.

Is it not a case of incompetent people sitting at the top who just can not deal with terror and crimes?

Today they are telling the nation, no efforts will be spared to bring the culprits to book. We will catch them very soon and nobody will be spared. These words we have heard in many press meets. They don't have any meaning. They are hollow words.

No case of any terror attack is cracked with success till today and criminals are booked. The cases are going on for years together in courts. The convicts condemned by the courts and sentenced to death like Afzal Guru and Ajmal Kasab are still not hanged. Crores of taxpayers money is being spent on these terrorists. 

How do you explain all this?  

This is giving strength and courage  to terrorists to attack India boldly knowing well, they can get away with murder in day light. Their support network locally is established in all major cities and Home Ministry has failed in crushing them at the roots. The corruption is another factor which is playing its role for buying people at local levels who want to make fast buck.

It is the failure of Home Ministry policies and style of working. Instead of owning the responsibility, the minister is trying to praise the state home ministry and police machinery, how excellent job they have been doing after 26/11. Chidambaram says, for the last 31 months there was not a single terror attack on Mumbai? This was to give a pat on the back of RR Patil, the state Home Minister. But we citizens don't think so.
It is a direct failure of administrative machinery of the Home Ministry and human intelligence failure of people like P Chidambaram and RR Patil.
HM Chidambaram says in the press conference, we did not have any inputs about this blasts. From the Center and also at state level intelligence.
What does all this mean to common people who are getting killed in every terror attack? And does the Home Ministry think the inputs are going to come from terrorists?  Home Minister is explaining at length how effectively post blast arrangements were made by the state government. How many ambulances arranged. How all hospitals got into actions, in his press conference.

What arrangements?  In all hospitals there was utter confusion, no one knew what is happening and worst of all, families were frantically trying to locate their loved ones. Even today, we are still watching it all live on TV channels. How citizens are helping injured people and there is an utter chaos in the hospitals.

Every time, these ministers speak in front of the TV cameras, they use same hollow words. Mumbaikars are brave, courageous. They are  resilient and don't get threatened by such cowardly attacks by terrorists. What is all this insensitive talk? It is rather irritating than complimenting any Indian, not just Mumbaikar..

Do Indians really have a choice? Can they afford to stay at home?

Be it Mumbai, Ahmadabad, Delhi, Bangloor, or any metropolis. You will always see people back  to work next day. Does that mean, they are resilient and brave and courageous? Do they have a choice? In the mornings when they leave homes, they and their families are not sure whether they will meet again. They don't feel safe at all till they are back home. What courage and bravery are these politicians talking about?
We don't really want Rahul Gandhi to take our class who moves around with Black Commandos 24 X 7. It is not only irrational but also irresponsible statement.

Let all politicians move around on the streets of India like a common man without the security cover and then we will listen to their talk of resilience and courage. Rahul Gandhi's utterances have insulted the intelligence of common man on the street and it is rubbing salt on the wounds of people who have lost their loved ones just yesterday. The wounds are still bleeding and people have yet to come to terms.

Please do not play with our sentiments. If you can not do a job for which you all are elected...
just step down. Vacate the office.

Home Minister at the center and state should own responsibility and resign immediately.

Enough is Enough.

It is the government in power failed once again to save Mumbaikers.

Is the Prime Minister enjoying Independence and Freedom?

Is our Prime Minister working independently ??
or by the remote control from 10 Janapath?


I know, to say this is like, hitting below the belt. Especially when you say something like this about the most honest and sincere person like Dr Manmohan Singh. But the situation today calls for this concern, unfortunately. 

We have no constitutional head, no Prime Minister leading this nation and this office is hijacked by Sonia Gandhi and her loyalists like Digvijay Singh who are loyalists of Nehru Gandhi family. This lot is enjoying phenomenal growth in their powers and Swiss bank accounts. In the process, other political families like Karuna Nidhi, Jaya Lalitha, Sharad Pawar, Mulayam Singh Yadav, Lallu Prasad Yadav, Amer Singh, Mayawati and many many more political personalities have enjoyed too exceptional growth in their fortunes and political power. They are all like in hand-and-glove relationship and are all involved in this national loot. 

In English there is an expression to describe this situation perfectly well.  
"You scratch my back, I scratch yours" This explains well.

For this situation, Manmohan Singh, Pranab Mukharji, and so called all senior Congress loyalists to Nehru Parivar are squarely and completely responsible to let this hijack take place. 

Dr Manmohan Singh's press meet with senior editors was a pathetic attempt to prove it to people that he is in full control of his office and he is not operating by any remote control. He is not a lame duck. This press meet was a total sham because this idea was floated to use his clean and honest image to do white wash with public at large through senior editors. Who were all these senior editors? Like Kumar Ketkar whose views are known. The public knows whose side they are on. 

So this was to act as a propaganda machinery to lift up PM's image which has been taking beating for long with all the scams.

But by just saying, I am not a lame-duck does not prove anything. Because, his actions don't support and prove what he claims. He is not in full control of PM's office nor as the constitutional head of our country and that is a serious situation for all Indians to be concerned about today. 

Dr Manmohan Singh may claim anything, but the fact that person like Digvijay Singh, the congress General Secretary talks loosely in front of the national media, and  PM can not pull him up is a proof enough to prove, he is not in control at all. Digvijay Singh's statements to media that Rahul is now ready to take over as PM is a clear indication that, the PM is really not a power center. And the real power center is Sonia Gandhi. On her instructions everything moves. Her own satellites like Digvijay Sing are working on their hidden agenda for another hijack. Yes, Dr Manmohan Singh is a lame duck because, he is not showing his authority over others as a leader of ruling party neither his powers as the leader of this nation.  

In today's news papers, Digvijaya Singh has crossed his limits. His outrageous comments in the media is an insult of Judiciary. He has the courage to show sympathy towards politicians thrown in the jail openly and defy court rulings. He feels sorry for Suresh Kalmadi, Ashok Chavan who he think are innocent? He feels, they should not be in the jail? 

Just what does he mean by this, Dr Manmohan Singh? How dare he passes comments like this when the judicial proceedings are going on? 

He is your Congress party's General Secretary, and you let him insult our judicial process? Our constitution which we say is supreme? You allow his arrogance to this extent that you do not have the guts to pull him up and throw him out? Is it wrong on our part if we think you as a lame duck then?

How dare he talks about judiciary with such a contempt?

Looking at your silence, you are not just a lame-duck but also irresponsible, insensitive and incompetent leader of this country. Are you not committed by oath to protect the interest of this nation in every which way?

Is the coalition Dharma important or the national interest ? if you have to deliver the judgement as a Prime Minister

All senior congressmen like you for the sake of merely enjoying powers at the center have mortgaged this country to people who have nothing to lose but only gain from this powers. Yes, who are indirectly, remotely running your government. That is a fact. It is a shame that seniors like you and Pranab Mukharjee and many other congressmen who have spent many years in political and social life can not run this country with your experience and intellect that you need people like Sonia Gandhi whose academic backgrounds and experience in social and political domain is questionable.

And their only qualification is that they belong to Nehru Khandan? Nothing else.

This is a height of sycophancy by all the old Congressmen for the sake of enjoying powers. None of you have a national character and a national pride. The shame is, you all claim to be Congressmen that not too long ago Mahatma Gandhi also belonged to. But his lifestyle, his thinking, his pride about India, none of you from Congress are following it today in letter and spirit. It is an utter shame that, you people are not even remotely close to his thinking and his ideas about India. You people are so corrupt in your thinking that this country is being looted and you all are busy covering it up all.

But for the media's active role and few social activists like Anna Hazare, you are getting exposed day after day. But what is seen is just the tip-of-the-ice-burg.
Take the horrible railway accident that killed many lives. Who was in-charge of the Railway ministry? No one really. Your romance with Trinumal congress is responsible to take lives of so many innocents. The same romance with DMK is also responsible for the loot that is going on in this country. You are a mute spectator watching it happening under your leadership.

Are you in control or being controlled by remote control?

We may lack sense but we surely have common sense to see clearly who is doing the damage to this country. Take example of rotting food grains because storing facility is not sufficiently available. Who is responsible for that? Your agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar. Isn't it? But because of your coalition politics you don't dare hold him responsible who spends most of his time in BCCI and ICC cricket matches  The food grains are rotting at many places for the past 4/5 years. In our poor country where half the population goes to sleep without food, isn't it a crime to let the food go waste in millions of tons?

But who cares if common people die in train accidents or terror attacks or for lack of food? As a leader of this nation are you not responsible? You have given full freedom to your ministers to loot this country. Are you not a lame-duck? A weak Prime Minister? Or a PM without an authority?
Do you really have your own conscience?

That you allow people like Digvijay Singh, Karuna Nidhi and his family, A. Raja, Maran, Suresh Kalmadi, BSP, SP, Lalu Prasad, Amar Singh like characters loot this country? And then address the nation to say, I am not a lame-duck? In the last 60 years of independence, if anyone has allowed corruption to this massive scale in political class is your party in power.

Look at this track records.
Boffors scam, CWG scam, Adarsh scam, Oil scam, Natwar Singh scam, Lavasa scam, Defense scam, Telgi scam, Harshad Mehata scam, Land scams,Hasan Ali  scam.

And now we heard just yesterday in the news, the biggest of all scams, Coal scam of over 40lakh crores, looting of nation's black Gold. We also read in the news that, special favors  given by your ministers like Kapil Sebal to industrialists like Anil Ambani, Mukesh Ambani. All happening in your raaj. Who is looting this country and stealing tax payers money? Who is having Swiss Bank accounts in billions of dollars?

Please, don't get me wrong. I am not from BJP or any political party. I am from the civil society.

When it comes to poor governance, corruption, all parties have poor records. But some have worst records like Congress, BSP, SP. And Congress has been in power for most of the years after independence.

We feel rightly, about three possibilities...

1- This country is run on the remote control by someone else and not by our Prime Minister.
2- If not, you are not a competent leader who can lead this nation.
3- You just don't care about country being looted, and sticking to power is important at this age.

Whatever may the reasons, It surely sounds, for India it is a situation of grave concern.

The civil society concerns mainly are ...

1- This weak leadership is giving space to criminal elements to enter into politics.
2- It is allowing political class to keep looting this country.
3- It is creating power centers especially by powerful families which are allowed to control politics in  this country remotely and loot this country.

And because, we do not have powerful leader in place to lead this country with national interest and pride at heart, people of this country are made to pay heavy price while few are allowed to loot this country in day light.

We are not willing to take your word at face value any more after watching all these scams under your rule. You are surely not in control of anything sitting in PMs office and if that is so, it is dangerous for this country to allow you to carry on as the leader of this one billion nation. We can not see our country being looted just because, we have a PM whose leadership and conscience is in question.
