Modi ends silence on Sonia

What was it about Narendra Modi’s latest speech that caused such a huge commotion? Almost every national newspaper considered it so important a matter that long editorials, bristling with outrage, were devoted to it. Senior ministers in the Government of India considered it their personal responsibility to censure the Gujarat Chief Minister on television. He was charged with not understanding our ‘political culture’ and with not behaving like a real national leader. The answer in a sentence is that the Nehru-Gandhi family is considered sacrosanct and any hint of criticism is treated as blasphemy. As someone who is routinely reviled for daring to question Sonia Gandhi, my sympathies lay with Modi but there is a more important point that needs to be made and this is that in a democracy no elected official has the right to be as unaccountable to the public as the Gandhi family has been.

The biggest difference between feudalism and democracy is that in a democracy ordinary people have every right to not just demand accountability from their representatives, but to criticise them publicly and to get rid of them if they continue to remain unaccountable. When we demand less than this we put ourselves in real danger of being ruled in totalitarian fashion. But, for reasons that I have never been able to fully understand, the mighty Indian media has permitted Sonia Gandhi to not just remain unaccountable, but to actually participate in guarding her privacy. In no other democratic country, for instance, would it be considered normal for a major political leader to fall ill and keep the nature of the illness secret. Nor do democratic countries permit elected leaders to wander off to foreign lands without demanding to know where they went and at whose cost but in India we have never asked questions like this of Sonia Gandhi or her children. What is worse is that if someone, like your humble columnist, asks such questions then you end up as I have with the label ‘Sonia-baiter’ pinned on you.

When my book Durbar came out recently, some reviewers went to the extent of saying that it would have been a better book if I had not allowed my ‘personal feelings’ about Sonia to come in the way. The truth is that my personal feelings have nothing to do with this but I do believe that as the most important leader in India what she does and says has to be within the realm of criticism. It has to be otherwise we would be following feudal and not democratic rules. I believe further that the media should not have allowed her to get away with giving no interviews. It is the public’s right to know her views on important matters since she has played a definite role in making policy

Modi said nothing in his speech at last Sunday’s BJP meeting that was even slightly offensive. He expressed the view that the interests of the Congress Party and the country had been sacrificed to the interests of ‘The Family’ and this, he said, had weakened the polity. Is this more offensive than Sonia Gandhi having called him a ‘merchant of death’ in the 2007 election campaign in Gujarat? Is it any more offensive than Sonia having called Atal Bihari Vajpayee a ‘liar’ and a ‘traitor’ in the days when she was a political novice? Just as she had every right to criticise her political opponents, so does Modi. If his criticism of the ‘parivar’ has caused the equivalent of a political earthquake then it could be because there is more at stake than is immediately obvious.

Whenever a member of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty has been in power in Delhi, a court or ‘durbar’ forms around them. In recent times, because of Sonia’s aloofness from ordinary people, the power of this court has grown exponentially. It is not just her political favourites who shield her from lesser political beings but journalists and even socialites. When Durbar came out, it puzzled me that the book was attacked most furiously on the cocktail circuit and especially by a large and loud socialite whose son is a close friend of Rahul Gandhi. At almost every social event I attended in Lutyens Delhi, I found myself accosted by people who told me they had heard bad things about the book from this lady. When I tried to find out why from one of her friends, she smiled and said, “You see she thinks of the Gandhi family as her personal property and she doesn’t like anyone writing anything against them.”

With Modi having made his intentions to enter national politics abundantly clear in his recent speeches, a terrible panic has begun to spread among those who constitute the court that surrounds the ‘parivar’. They have begun to fear that the privileged access that they have had for nearly a decade is now in danger of being lost for good. They fear that even their friends in the BJP will be thrown into the dustbin if Narendra Modi becomes Prime Minister and that there will be new equations into which they will not fit and new rules that they will not understand. A businessman who listened carefully to Modi’s speech said, “Not only has he changed the agenda, he has changed the idiom. It is the first time that I have heard any political leader discuss complicated ideas of governance and economics in Hindi. It has never happened ever.”

So what they fear in Delhi’s murky political corridors and elegant drawing rooms is that the advent of Modi bodes ill for them in every possible way. This is why there has been such hysteria over his having dared to attack the ‘parivar’. He talked of many other things in his speech, important things like why India had been left behind economically by countries that had been behind us. And, the importance of ending the sense of hopelessness that has spread across the land but these are not the points on which long editorials have been written and noisy panel discussions held. It is his attack on the ‘parivar’ that has been more discussed than anything else because the sycophants who surround the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty from political, media and social circles are beginning to see his advent as an existential threat.

    Media in India is just a mouse. Democracy is autocratic because corrupt and self servers flock to encash secret files after govt order. This facility allows them to dispense justice secretly. We have dictatorship, sometimes benevolent like Modi in Gujarat. Until and unless we demand no secret file after govt order, our fate is that of a mouse.

  • Soumitri Das

    There is a human tendency to resist any kind of change no matter even if it is for good, that said its time the present Delhi ‘durbar’ needed to be dismantled, its too old and fragile, its very existence is dangerous to our nation. Let there be a new “Durbar” in the capital of Delhi.

  • Dileep

    They brainwashed or people used to that people shouldnt talk about gandhi family. Thats the reason raul baba tries to show that he is nowhere connected to the present govt.

    Narendra Bhai, Please start your march all over india to save India from chaos,anarchy,depression,destabilization,divide,secession by touring whole of India very soon. Election is very near and it wud be held all of a sudden. Congress has finalized details and the election may be held before monsoon or soon after monsoon.They have set up their own PM and he is Chidambaram. But it needs hard work as Narendra Bhai Modi has shown in the last 2/3 months all over Gujarat. He toured each and every village, constituency; hamlets with hard hitting eloquent speech mesmerized all voters. Narendra Modi presented himself as a charismatic leader, messiah of the masses. In his 10 years of rule in Gujarat he had showed that it is possible within the limitations of all the laws, rules, and regulations to work wonders for the people.But Sonia Gandhi with a group of NGOs,Lawyers, Media Groups engaged him relentlessly in vicious slanders and insinuations to tarnish his image as a good administrator and showed him as a dictator, cruel,insensitive,communal,murderer.

    But all these slanders worked positively for him as people understand that all these are false frauds and malicious.He gained by their slanders and climbed the rope.Now whole of India has high hopes on him and his ability to change india.EX- military personals, Army, police force supports him for his objectivity and plain talks.He never talked rubbish or malicious against any of his political rivals although they are deadly against him.

    Sonia Gandhi wanted to trap him several times with SC appointed SIT and Teesta Shetalvad Javed Khans NGOs but failed to sent him to jail.It is a matter of shame for some media houses who played into the hands of Sonia Gandhi either by force, blackmail or money to tarnish image of Narendra Modi.It is strange that some leaders of BJP in National level played into the hands of Sonia Gandhi to check entry of Narendra Modi to national Politics to be appointed as President this year and later on nominee for PM.But People love him and wants him to lead the nation for its development in all sectors.If these selfish leaders of BJP will not allow Narendra Modi as PM and party President the future of India Hindus and BJP is doomed.Now time has arrived for unity of Hindus for polarization, consolidation of their votes irrespective of caste creed race religion sects for a strong backlash against a aggressive belligerent Muslim and Fraudster thugs Christian who are holding the country at ransom and blackmail it in every and each sphere. Namo is panacea to all ills in India and needs to appointed as National President of BJP and Nominee for PM post by BJP.NDA would be automatically strengthened when BJP gets a thumping majority and few short to 272 in LS.Narendra Modi has become ICON of Hindu unity and patriotism. He is catalyst in uniting, polarizing, consolidating and creating a strong Hindu vote Bank which will change the course of Indian history and future of India from a Muslim dominated state to a Hindu dominated state.When 15% Muslims by their vote bank can hijack,dictate,held,ransom whole India why and how 100 Crores Hindus cant do the same.

    BSY is not keshubhai patel as many in BJP thinks.BSY is a peoples leader having roots in Karnataka.His term as CM of Karnataka made BJP more popular by his works in all fields.He was removed by a conspiracy hatched by Ananth kumar ,VP of BJP,along with the gang of four of Advani who with the Congress highcommand implicated him in sundry cases of corruption with CBI enquiry and Governors abuse of Powers.He faught with his last with the conspirators but failed as the top leaders of BJP are more strong and resolved to remove him from party to install Ananth Kumar as Next CM.Sonia Gandhi helped them in their attempt.

    • N.P.NAIR

      Congrats to u for correctly appreciating Mr.N Modiji.India will be doomed if BJP and Modiji could not come to absolute power without NDA band.If the people of India fails to do their duty correctly in the coming G.elections,they will be the most unfortunate lot.My appeal to the people is save this country from the clutches of NEHRU-GANDHI family rule.

  • laxmi

    After reading your book Durbar, I did feel that your personal bias was showing, but consistently after that, every article you’ve written has common sense and plain facts and questions that many of us common non Durbar citizens always knew.
    Way to go Ms Tavleen….. true journalism is asking questions, demanding answers and providing facts.

  • http://twitter.com/gauranga10 Dr Amit Shukla

    Again great article by Tavleen ji, long live mam. Seriously I also never understood why Media never ask a single question to Sonia. If any thing bad happens by UPA, then it is Manmohan Singh is responsible and if something good happens then it is vision and guidance of Sonia ji, what a marvelous logic. This non-sense has been perpetuated very long and we Indians have to get rid of it to get real democracy.

  • sunil

    I read your book “Durbar” which gives perfect insight of what modern Gandhi’s are all about, and it is one bitter reality which congress and its followers will never accept. But having said that this fact also can not be ignored that reason behind Sonia’s shield are some so call leaders in BJP who never contested any election and if contested contested from safe seats.
    MODI’s presence in center is also making them jittery. LOP in RS in one such example.Much talked secret deals with congress by these leaders of BJP stand in the way of MODI. But yes once MODI comes at center this so call orators will be sidelined also. Thier self ambitions might pose problem for Modi.

    Tavleen I will also appreciate if you write an article that aspirants of PM post in BJP should start ruling themseleves out and pave the way for MODI in order to give Direction to India and break the jinx of Gandhi Parivaar. This will also make easier for people to make up their mind for MODI in 2014 and BJP will put up a united face.

    Bang on with the analysis. Modi coming to Delhi has set the cat among the pigeons for all these hanger-ons who got fat on the meaty tidbits thrown their way by the CONgressi establishment and Sonia storm-troopers

    Very good analysis! Bang on target! :-) I don’t know is it for real but far too many things happening…on the face of it they are isolated events but taken together they seem to be building of a momentum…lets see…

    It’s not rocket science even the US President (the most powerful person in USA&by extension in the world) addresses the media regularly briefing his citizens about what his government is doing. So does the Australian, British, Candadian and NZ PMs. This about the English speaking so called Westminster nations. The same is the case with non-English speaking France, Germany, Nederlands down to Belgium and of course the EU. In all these countries there are no extra constitutional UPA cum NAC cum party President as a Supreme Leader with maximum power over their cabinet and with the least accountability and transparency.

    Now if we just consider the fact that Times of India and Economic Times are the world’s most circulated English dailies in their categories one would have assumed they would have been leading the democratic discourse across the world and not merely in India. This is not happening not because of any racism but the quality of their journalism. Even a local daily like London’s Evening Standard has more journalistic integrity than India’s Times of India or Hindustan Times or Indian Express. This is also not because Indian journalists are less educated but solely because they lack independence, integrity, journalistic ethos which make them look like a PR agent or a brand ambassador or a mouth piece for one dynasty or ideology. We should bear in mind why the Indian journalists are not doing a Watergate style investigation on the ruling family of India especially because they some times quote the Watergate expose against President Nixon as an exemplar in journalistic integrity and duty! JAI HIND

    • N.P.NAIR

      Dear Johnson Thomas,U are very true in understanding Indian media.I have stopped reading or viewing the news long back.All paid workers.Mr.Ambedkar in 1943 in a speech at Pune said”Indian media could not be relied upon for its reporting” So this situation was there even before independence.It is still continuing.The reasons for all these ills are Indians’ greediness for money and power.Nobody can cure it.

  • Jitendra Desai

    Right Tavleen.Those who have entrenched themselves in the Durbar since so many decades[ they are there since the days of late Pt Nehru and Mrs Indira Gandhi] are feeling threatened by this new kid on the block.All these durbaris forgot that there was the nation and its people beyond Yamuna and Redfort.
    Modi will have to guard against these darbaris though.Because they are so cunning that they will change the sides before any one gets wiser.Wait for the “wave” to develop in few months from now.You will see the waves of them flocking to the new honeycomb.

  • mathew ninan

    Whatever I am- cheap govt. aided english medium school; B.Tech/ IIT;BHEL- I owe it to Pdt.Jawahar Lal Nehru. Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee did his bit by extending my superannuation age from 58 yrs.to 60 yrs. NaMo of vibrant Gujarat is no Mahatma Gandhi or Sardar Patel , like that stupid CMD of ADAG said.He has to tell me ,considering that BJP govt. in Goa has many Roman Catholic MLAS in GOA, what was wrong with CEC Lyngdoh or Late Dr.Kurien Verghese ? All that 3D Sadhbhavna keep it to yourself. Robert Vadhra has already called R.O.I a Banana Republic and Shashi Tharoor has called us ‘Cattle Class’.Forget that educated people like me will let RSS Cultural Hegemony take over from Indira Gandhi familial dynastic rule. Jai Hind!

    • http://kuchtobolo.blogspot.in Vikram

      Matthew, why this instinctive dislike of Modi? You seem to realize that UPA has done great damage to India in last 9 years…and you probably also realize Modi is the man who offers the best hope of effecting a turnaround. But just because he has been projected as a Hindutva icon by media, you as a Christian oppose him? What is it about RSS/Hindutva that offends you anyway…RSS talks about cultural nationalism, about accepting that this country has Dharmic roots, that we are all children of Bharat Mata. Whats wrong with that? Dharma allows for everyone to practise their own faith with freedom…that has been the Indian way for centuries. But it is natural to expect minorities to develop an appreciation for the majority way of life. That is what happens in France, UK, USA, China, Japan..everywhere in the world. If I as a Hindu migrate to any of those lands, I dont find it offensive if that country expects me to develop an understanding/appreciation for their culture, their nations history. That is what we Hindus in India expect as well – Bharat is the spiritual home of Dharma…we all must become its ambassadors, so that we can spread the message of our wonderful spritual & cultural heritage far & wide. Of course, we need to augment that heritage with material advancement, and not let it blind us to societal distortions like caste & gender discrimination that have crept in over the centuries…those have to be fought on a war footing. But all countries have gone through such phases, there is nothing innately wrong with Indian culture – it just needs some corrective measures. And Hindutva isnt a hegemonistic idea..its about self-respect for the Hindu way of life. I see nothing wrong in that, when Americans can have so much pride in their country despite the genocide of Native American Indians, despite slavery, despite the murderous racism right up to 1960s.

      • mathew ninan

        Dear Vikram,
        The best Vikram, I know is Vikram Sarabhai. Who is this VS ?
        Tavleen Singh, the high society, cocktail circuit DURBARI JOURNALIST will be at a loss. As for RSS- Must I start shouting – “Mahatma Gandhi MURDABAD, VEER SHAHID NATHURAM GODSE TERI ATMAAN HAMESHA AMAR RAHEGI” ? Hinduism is a way of life, not a religion. In his beeg sapeech to SRCC, Guju Bhais in USA, he talked about Milk, he never said anything about Dr. Late Dr.Kurien Verghese of Anand Milk Union Co-operative Ltd.(AMUL). Find out from wikipedia.org how AMUL destroyed the ‘Maya’ created by NESTLE that only cow’s milk can be transformed into milk powder. Vande Matram, Jai Bharat Mata Ki, Jai Hind !

        • N.P.NAIR

          Mr.MN,U have not answered Vickram,s points properly.Some cock n bull stuff.Coming to RSS I invite ur attention to Honorable Judge Mr Mathew’s views on RSS.He was having an Opinion on RSS just like u.But he changed after knowing the RSS fully well.There are thousands and thousands of European Christians converted into Hinduism attracted by its high principles and lofty ideals,a religion wishing every human beings well in this world(loka samastha sukhino bhavanthu”).Christians believe human beings will get salvation only thru Christinity!That why they are hunting other religion people for conversion.Muslims believe that no human being other than Muslims don’t have the right to live in this world!!Hence “holy Jihad”.So killing others is their religious rite to get salvation.We can not blame both of u.That is the belief created in u by ur prophets.Ultimate God is only ONE, that god has not asked anybody to do inhuman acts.HE is full of love and nothing but love.There comes Hindu religions’ fitness to cultured human society.If u are a logical person u should reason why Godse’s has done that crime? He believed that Gandhiji’s existence will ruin HINDUS.The actions of later Gandhis have proved his belief.RSS had nothing to do with Godse’s action.If that being the case why Sonia congress is not blamed for the murder of 4000 odd sikhs in Delhi ?.Indians forgot everything and have very coolly handed over power to the ITALIANS.Now Italy is fooling India.U are still hanging on Godse and RSS,b’cuz they are Indians.Pl be reasonable in expressing opinions.

        • A

          I thought his name was Verghese Kurien. Don’t bother to reply though, you come across as a missionary troll.

        • http://kuchtobolo.blogspot.in Vikram

          Dear Matthew

          The best Matthew I knew was my close friend in college. Unlike you, he was never paranoid about Hindu “hegemony”..his father being a serving Army officer, he had stayed in different parts of the country and seen the Hindu way of life up close. Btw, based on self-knowledge and the quality of your comments, I can say without any doubt that neither of us are in the same league as the great Vikram Sarabhai :)

          Chalo, on to your next ‘logical’ argument – as ex-RSS member Godse killed Gandhiji, means RSS killed Gandhiji. Never mind the FACT that RSS was exonerated of any involvement in that act by the Supreme Court, and govt of India lifted its ban on RSS just 1 year after Gandhiji’s death…going by your ‘argument’, I can claim that since PJ Kurien is an alleged rapist, all Kerala Christians in Congress should be viewed as alleged rapists.

          “Hinduism is a way of life, not a religion” – thats one way of looking at it. Hindu way of life is based on Dharma (law of nature), a word that doesn’t really translate as organized religion. I encourage you to embrace the Hindu way of life, while remaining a practising Christian..will remove the dislike which I sense is lurking in your heart for the heathen.

          Dr Kurien has been widely hailed as the father of India’s milk revolution & Modi is one of many who has paid tribute to him – http://www.dnaindia.com/india/report_dr-verghese-kurien-an-epitome-of-dedication-narendra-modi_1738839
          Btw, while reeling off statistics on Gujarat, Modi also didnt pay homage to Aryabhatta for having invented 0…how narrow-minded of him, right!!

          Chalo..peace. Vande Matram, Jai Hind

          • N.P.NAIR

    wonderfully written article

  • Kamal Saini

    Very well said. The coterie is freely a threat of becoming extinct. You see all sycophants from Gujarat have been eliminated. No socialites, no parties. People come to Gandhinagar only for official purposes.
    Modi made it abundantly clear in his speech who is on his target. All 5 star activists are on his target who are surviving on the sycophancy.
    So wait and watch

  • mathew ninan

    We have to take it for granted that Coalition Governments are the in thing. Roughly there are The Rightists, The Centrists and The Leftists. The regional parties are more concerned with their constituencies : Peaceful, Economic Progress and sustained development of all vote banks which constitute their states. The coastal areas on the Arabian Sea, Gujarat,Maharasshtra, Konkan Area, Goa, Mangalore and Kerala and in the Bay Of Bengal: Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry and Andhra Pradesh are much better of than the land locked and hill areas.Do not talk of BJP,INC or Left Front. Talk in terms of NDA, UPA, Left Front.Make your coalition before you go in for the polls.The need of the hour is not intra-party democracy – but, intra-coalition members’democracy.

  • Dr. Sadhak Sen

    Thanks for a nice article. It is this thing that bothers me the most. All that congress party has become is to protect Sonia, Rahul and other family members. Even the PM is holding office to transfer it to Rahul when Rahul is ready for it. When Rahul talked of terrorism of the majority the congress party went into high gear supporting it. So, Modiji has dared to put the truth in the right perspective.

  • ASD

    Amazing eye-opener for people like Matthew Ninan. Vikram in his comment rightly referred “a cat amongst the piegon” and I can see what this article is doing to the people like Matthew. The thought itself is like judgement day for some folks :))
    I shall contribute towards better India and definitely support the novel thoughts and analysis done by Tavleen ji.
    It is the alarm that shall wake-up the nation and change lives for good, forever. Bharat Mata ki Jai!!!

  • mathew ninan

    Wish you all the best ASD.Neither NDA nor UPA have managed to run a coalition smoothly.Satellite regional parties have their own priorities which may be at variance to collective national interest. The myth that vibrant Gujarat can easily be scaled to vibrant India got dented in the Karnataka Municipality elections.One can only hope that we will develop into a more mature democracy. Jai Hind !

    • Varsh

      Connecting municipality or a ULB elections to LS elections is absolutely bizarre. People vote differently at each level. BJP-SS holds the civic body in Mumbai and other cities in Maharashtra while Cong is in power in the state. It is the same scenario in Delhi-MCD is with BJP and the state with Cong. ULB in Karnataka has been with Cong from 2004. Cong won the ULB in K’taka in 2007 while BJP won the state in 2008 and again did well in LS elections in 2009. Hope you make proper observations and understand the intricacies involved in the voting pattern.

    • N.P.NAIR

      Mr.Mathew Ninan, I am not in favoer of coalition politics.People are contesting on party lines but they can not implement their promises after coming into power because they are in a coilition.Then are they not cheating the public making coilition?In a real democracy majority is to rule,not by artificial majority.So the only solution is to bring 2 party rule either in center or in states if at all we want democracy in force.Another major flaw is giving caste and religious considerations in selecting candidates,ministers etc etc before and after elections.Then why can’t we contest on religious lines instead of political party lines ? This clearly shows that we not following secularism in the real sense.Talking one thing and doing another thing.Hippocratic secularism!!

      • Rajalakshmi

        TOTALLY agree with you N.P.NAIR.

        Coalition politics is one big travesty of Justice. They contest as rivals embracing different ideologies & making the same useless vows.Citing fractured mandate the same inimicals join hands citing “stability & security” of the country:-(( They are worried about their own security , free quotas of cooking gas cylinders , free air travel , electricity bills unpaid ever remaining unpaid etc. The allegedly dry roti eating deceptively meek Rabri Devi said her children would enter politics & was upholding dynasty rule in Bihar also.

        Forgetting criminals like Laloo yadavs etc have never truly faced commensurate punishment. They should NEVER be allowed to contest any election let alone rule. BBC’s Andrew Whitehead fell in love with Laloo Yadav. Hence next step is to throw them all into UK telling them here comes several more jewels missing in your Crown. Why let others come & pontificate & uplift. Better we toss them all to their countries. Our LAND & RESOURCES are thus saved from invaders in the guise of interfaith blah blah.

    THE MAN WHO HAS SET THE PATH FOR THE COUNTRY & ITS 850 MILLION YOUNG TO MOVE IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION ,HAS BEEN SHOWN FOR THE FIRST TIME CONSISTENTLY BY GUJARAT FOR LAST 10 YRS OR MORE.
    NOW HOW DO WE CONTRIBUTE IN “YOUNG INDIA VOTING CORRECTLY & IN MAJORITY FOR SHRI MODIJI AS P.M ,IS REALLY WHAT WE HAVE TO PONDER ABOUT.”

    CONGRESS WILL DO ANYTHING TO NOT LET MODIJI BE P.M,& SNEAK INTO POWER. MEDIA WILL SPEND 24 /7 TO SPREAD ALL FALSE NEWS WHY CONGRESS IS STRONG & WINNING. “BUT WE ALL KNOW THE TRUTH THAT CONGRESS IS OUT”. NOW HOW CAN WE EACH INDIVIDUAL HELP SHRI MODIJI BECOME P.M.CAN WE HELP BJP NOT DO FOOLISH THINGS OF WEAKENING THEMSELVES IN KARNATAKA FOR SOME PEOPLES EGOISM & PERSONAL GAINS.

    I WINDER WHY AND HOW BJP IS BEING BRANDED AS COMMUNAL PARTY? WHY RSS IS BEING BRANDED AS COMMUNAL? IS THERE NO OTHER PARTY MORE HATEFUL?? WHT CONGRESS PEOPLE DID IMMEDIETELY AFTER MRS INDIRA GANDHIS MURDER? IT IS EASY TO BRAND BJP OR RSS OR SOME OTHER AS COMMUNAL WITHOUT HAVING A SLIGHT IDEA OF EXISTING CONDITION PREVAILING AT THAT TIME?.
    FOR ME ALL THE POLITICIANS WHO ARE LOOTING THE COUNTRY, SOME PARTIES WHO ARE WASTING THE PUBLIC MONEY BY MAKING PARTY SYMBOLS, ERECTING STATUES OF THEIR LEADERS, BEAUTIFYING GARDENS IN MEMORY OF THEIR LEADERS , USING PUBLIC MONEY IN FOREIGN TOURS, WHEN CRORES OF OUR POOR PEOPLE ARE DYING OF POVERTY ARE MORE COMMUNAL! IT IS FOR THE PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND AND SHOW THE WAY OUT FOR SUCH LEADERS, PSYCHOPATHS,AND POLITICAL PARTIES, IN THE COMING ELECTIONS.
    IS IT REALLY POSSIBLE IN TODAY’S SITUATIONS WHERE ELECTIONS ARE WON BY MONEY? I AM SURE OUR GREAT LEADERS LIKE GANDHIJEE, NEHRUJI,TILAK,VALLABHBHAI,JAGDISHCHANDRA BOSE, WOULD HAVE COMMITED SUICIDE AT THE SORRY STATE IN WHICH WE ARE TODAY

      BJP and RSS are communal because it consists more than 90% Hindus.Muslim league and popular front are sickular because they belong to Muslims !!.”Sickularism” in India is bashing hindus and appeasing muslims.Muslim league minister in Kerala told that “we are ruling this state”.Besides Kashmir Kerala is another muslim state in Indian “demo-crazy”!!

  • mathew ninan

    It is definitely going to be an anti incumbency vote in 2013 in Delhi State polls and General elections in 2014. BJP is going to comeback with a big bang ,Modi or no Modi. In Genl. Elections NDA is going to come back with satellite support. In Karnataka, the Lingayats have been the politically dominant community. How many trillion dollars is NaMo expecting from Gujaratis in FDI, Venture / Angel Funds – and would these be exclusively for Gujarat. There was hardly any response to TMC’s rally to invite investments in W.Begal. If NaMo led NDA ,in 5 years from 2014, raises the BPL income level from Rs.32 to Rs.42 per capita per day (all India average), it would be a sterling performance. Let’s pray for that. Jai Hind !

    Shiela Dixit did not see the writing on the wall with the massive win of BJP in all the MCDs. She got stunned at the response of DU, IP, JNU and Jamia students to the tragedy that befell Late Nirbhaya / Damini/ Vedana / Desh Ki Beti Jyoti Singh Pandey. People, all over India have seen her body
    guards and Delhi Police escorting her to safety. In the aftermath she could only mutter her regular excuse – “Delhi Police does not report to me (It reports to S.Shindy)”. As for your son Sandeep Dixit, you are warned , by me ( Mathew Ninan ), you were more busy building an alternate Stephenian Alumnii than taking care of your constituency to which I belong. By the grace of Bharat Mata, i’m distantly related to both Dr.Walson Thampu and his wife, an MBBS Dr. Yes,Mr. Fansdeep Fixit, how much of your MPLADs fund have you invested in the development of your constituency ? Jai Hind !

    Taking into account various factors we the people of India should ensure only Sri.Narendra Modi & Smt.Jayalalithaa are EMPOWERED.

    Our constitution itself is in need of thorough overhauling. Only a HINDU shall always lead this country of ours. Not any secoolar charlatan.
    A Hindu who reveres Sri.Ram & Sri.Krishna & also KNOWS what our VEDAS enshrine. That HINDU who would ENFORCE ban on cow slaughter throughout India. To my knowledge only Narendra Modi & Jayalalithaa are capable enough to accomplish that. And much more.

    As citizens we have to VOTE only for these two people. Our well being is contained in this very important decision. Never trust congress , leftists , DMK & their allies.

  • N.P.NAIR

    Dear Miss Rajalakshmi, I appreciate ur opinion.U are very much right in the case of Narendra Modiji.Jayalalitha is capable but she is just like any other sickular Indian.Hindus can not expect any justice from her and the Indian sickulars.She had arrested a pier from Sankara Mutt once.If India is electing Gandhis and Nehrus next time that the doom for India.

    • Rajalakshmi

      @N.P.NAIR ,

      The real reasons behind that “arrest” of Kaanchi Shankaracharyar are complex. The evangelicals along with certain others orchestrated the conspiracy. (Details some other time).

      All the witnesses confessed they were threatened at gun point to testify against The Seer.

      Various charlatans like art of living SSSRavishankars & Ammachis did nothing at all as they are focussed on their own empires building.

      Jayalalithaa is a highly capable Leader. For good governance what we have had so far that is vote bank politics should go. If left to sit in opposition useless unethical criminalised entities like DMK , Congress , Leftists etc would do considerable harm & contribute only zilch. Hence it is in the hands of people like us to empower only Narendra Modi & Jayalalithaa.

      Barkha Dutts , Rajdeep Sardesais , Vikram Chandras etc should be excommunicated to North Korea & Timbaktu for commensurate punishment. Never allowed inside India.

      • N.P.NAIR

        Thank you Rajalakshmi. My point was ,if it happened to a muslim clergy even Miss jayalalithaa would not have dared to arrest him.What happened to Kamalahassan?.He had changed his name to Kamal Hussan when injustice done to muslims once. So she is also not dare enough to touch muslims.Of course she is a capable ruler.Jai Hind.

    Modi kicked the hornet’s nest albeit so late. Noone dared to do what he did.

    I’m living in USA for the last 15 yrs. I have to know language of this land. I have to work my rear off to become somebody and here we have someone like Sonia Gandhi who has zero administrative and leadership skills, can’t inspire a pig yet backpeddling complex democracy such as India selecting Presidents, PMs, Governors, CMs and central ministers. No wonder why we are reactive in every major issue India faces be it from corruption to gang rapes to killing and behading of our jawan. What do you expect? We are so pathetic we can’t rise above the fractionalism and not allow such people to lead us.

  • Rajalakshmi

    Beware ! The vested interests both WITHIN & WITHOUT India would tinker in all possible ways to engineer P.Chidambaram’s victory. They know Indians are suckers for flattery. Hence with one corner of their mouth praise Sri.Narendra Modi & Hinduism but work covertly to dump the same congress & P.Chidambaram on us.

    Both kollybollywood megalomaniacs Rajanikanth & Kamalhassan were invited by the same shrewd simple humble P.Chidambaram while releasing some book full of sycophantic material about his “achievements”. He knows people of Tamil Nadu & Andhra & the indian diaspora care ONLY for these filmstars. Those of Karnataka can be easily manipulated to vote for congress as Benny Hinns & Margaret Alvas have long taken care of groundwork. Art of living charlatan SSSRavishankar managed to dent Hinduism & credibility of Hindus further with his web of deceit. Infosys Narayana Murthy & his wife Sudha are all typical leftists. Mangalore is heavily churchianised as they call themselves Mangaloreans.

    EVM is not reliable.

  • Rajalakshmi

    Infosys Narayana Murthy & his wife Sudha are all typical profits chasing leftists.With that typical “social service of looking after some street children & ragpickers”.

    Kiron Mazumdar of BIOCON with a phoren husband is also not favourably disposed towards Hindus & RSS. That is understandable as she was doing some research in breweries distillation blah blah & lives in Bangalore notorious for its pub culture. They are ostensibly Hindus. But yuppies. Fence sitters.Not trustworthy.

  • mathew ninan

    to all rss ideology wallahs / wallahinis use your grey matter enclosed in your skull case. If, your school/ university / iit/aiims/iims has not taught you anything beyond the material world, you only expect to reach sri laxmiji and kuber by bribing ganeshji by modhaks .har ,har, mahadev; jai isa masih ki; jai bharat mata ki. in rss ki budedhi launder karo. jai hind .

    Tavleen Singh, is Welhams’, D’dun educated gal. She was a Durbarin in Delhi’s cocktail circuit of Rajiv & Sonia Gandhis’ High Society. Whatever Arun Jaitley has said about the 3 delberated , concocted versions of the Govt. Of Italy for ignoring the past rulings of Court of International Justice is very, very correct. Was the Pope ,hiding in his toilet whan Mussolini in Italy and General Franco, esp. Guernica in Spain doing their extreme fascism against humanity. This Vikram guy has to announce whether he is Psychoanalyst, Psychiatrist or Clinical Psychologist ?, before we can proceed farther. Vande Matram ! Jai Bharat Mata Ki !! Jai Hind !!!

    In India criticising Sonia is blasphemy. NDTV is the worst offender. NDTV is propaganda arm of the Gandhi family. The English press is also scared to be critical , fearing CBI raids, Income Tax harassment etc. Journalists are no saints. They get huge benefits by praising Congress and Sonia. Allocation of flats in prime location, free jaunts with ministers , exclusive interview with members of Gandhi family, etc. Painting Modi as Hitler is a must to seek favours from Congress. The Congress has such deep support among bureaucracy, judiciary, Police forces that the UPA will manage to form a Government even if the Congress gets only 100 seats in 2014 . Enough tools of harassment are available with the bureaucracy to arm twist 200 MPs into supporting Congress. The President is always a Congress man first and he will play a crucial role in bringing Congress back to power . Modi and BJP. Will not know what hit them.

  • mathew ninan

    mr.shiva,i like your name. om namoh shivay : your comment is another hypothesis. there are many hypotheses already forwarded / being forwarded by other subscribers. hypotheses in sync with your hypothesis will consolidate into a new thesis. let us,now, go by karl marx :’to each and every thesis there is an equal and opposite anti thesis’.Going by nitish kumar (bihar cm),an anti-congress, non-bjp front is possible to collectively manage national politics. jai hind !

  • Shiva

    Mr Mathew ninan is obviously a Hndu hater,who enjoys all the benefits of citizenship in a Hindu majority country . Converts are more loyal and violent in their support to their new affiliation.Running down Hindus will get a a few more morsels from foreign sponsors. India tolerates such attitudes and pays a heavy price. Yes , the Mathe Ninans of India enjoy more end benefits under a benevolent ” secular ” State than any Hindu can imagine in a Christan or Muslim State

    • N.P.NAIR

      The sicularism in India is Hindu bashing and minority appeasing.There are lakhs and lakhs of ninans in India who eat the bread and bite the owner.Just ignore these parasites.
