Reluctant admission of guilt is not ‘Redemption’

Reluctant admission of guilt is not ‘Redemption’

Suppose one commits a crime. Before He/She commits he/she is warned. Nevertheless He/She goes ahead and commits that crime he/she is warned against. He/She is caught and brought before the Court. Court finds Him/Her guilty of committing the Crime despite warning. Court sentences Him/Her to Jail. He/She has no other choice but to accept the Guilt. Or do they?

Will it be His/Her Redemption?  Sure I am that your answer would be capital NO.

But then if you are ‘Chamcha In Chief of CON party and work in a CON party Rag Called ‘The Hindustan Times’ then you suspend all logic and try give it a spin and try prove that He/She is statesman/woman since accepts guilt.

What I am talking about is this article Written by Chamcha In Chief’ Pankaj Vohra of HT in today’s paper. Come lets us see what he has to offer. My comments in Communal Saffron Color :)

PM redeems his image.

Pankaj Vohra, Political Editor HT.

By accepting responsibility for the decision to appoint PJ Thomas as the Central Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) following the apex court’s ruling that the  appointment was illegal, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has exhibited statesmanship of the highest order. In doing so, he has sent out a strong signal that if a mistake is made, it is best to admit it rather than hide behind bureaucratic notings. The PM has finally shown that the buck stops with him and that he, like any other citizen, had no hesitation in accepting the verdict of the highest court.

(Reading above gives you an impression that MMS has done Supreme Court and Indians a great favor by accepting the Supreme Court Verdict as if he had a Choice of not accepting it! As for STATESMANSHIP! WTF! Is he not duty bound to accept/respect Apex Court Order? As for hiding behind he would have surely done that, if he had even a smallest of excuse. We all know him quite well by now. Huh!)

Equally commendable is the immediate response from the leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha, Sushma Swaraj, the shadow prime minister, that the matter should be closed and one must move on. Swaraj was also on the panel to appoint Thomas though she disagreed with both the prime minister and the home minister on the choice of the nominee. Her counterpart in the Rajya Sabha, Arun Jaitley, though wants some clarifications on the issue. Given the prime minister’s candid admission, the matter could blow over in Parliament.

(That was stupid of Sushama saying pre maturely. She should have waited for MMS to speak in Lok Sabha first. Majority view is reflected by Arun Jaitley)

However, the appointment has several lessons for the ruling party. In future, there should be proper scrutiny of every person nominated for a sensitive position, particularly the offices that directly deal with corruption. Singh’s admission of his mistake and his subsequent comment that the appointment was not a result of coalition compulsions indicate that Thomas was shortlisted by elements within his own party.

(Quite interestingly today’s HT carries this article by Ashok Malik titled ‘A Curious Choice’ Must Read :) )

Singh, who was in the eye of a storm after expressing helplessness in dealing with some corruption issues at a press conference last month, has redeemed his image with this. (How he has redeemed? What is choice but then not to accept it? Redeemed he would have, had he accepted it before SC called his action as ‘Illegal’. Pankaj is it this hard to understand? ) He is also perhaps the first PM to accept a mistake upfront. (NOW name one Prime Minister whose actions/appointment was held ‘ILLEGAL’ prior to this?) He has tried to scotch speculation that since many decisions were taken elsewhere, his government could not be held accountable. He has shown that if there is a decision taken, even if at the behest of those in the party, the government will not shirk its responsibility for any error of judgement (Error of Judgment???) that it may make. It’s also an indication to the party that it shouldn’t push for issues or cases which may not stand up to judicial scrutiny. (Indirectly he means that now on CON party should be careful on procedures even if they appoint another Tainted one!)

The apex court has come out with flying colours by upholding the rule of law. In that context, the quashing of Thomas’s appointment must be seen as a victory for democracy rather than as a defeat for the government or a triumph for the opposition parties. There are certain issues where individual parties take secondary place since it’s democracy and our values which emerge stronger. (Supreme Court has done its duty and very well too. Kudos!)

Singh’s action also proves that had PV Narasimha Rao accepted his responsibility for the demolition of the Babri masjid, the plight of his party wouldn’t have been so dismal in the years that followed his exit from government. Mulayam Singh Yadav, by dissociating himself from Kalyan Singh after the 2009 parliamentary polls, also accepted his mistake in not putting his Samajwadi Party on a secular course. (What is relevance? But then dragging PVNR in everything and blackening Him is CON practice. Sic!) Similarly, Sonia Gandhi overturned the Congress thesis of going it alone in August 2003 to forge a coalition, which finally came to power in 2004. She realised that going it alone at that stage was a mistake and that the Congress had to reinvent itself in the coalition era. Her judgement yielded many political dividends for the party. (Pure political opportunism as is clear to all and any but to Chamcha In Chief, Pankaj Vohara.)

Politicians should not always have colossal egos. They must own up to their mistakes. They are not gods and should act with humility. While there could be many question marks regarding the future of the present government in view of several scams, it is heartening to note that the PM has realised that he is the last port of call. Between us.

Now that was Pankaj Vohra for you. Now why did ManMohan Singh appoint P J Thomas despite objections from LOP and subsequent ‘quashing’ of appointment by Supreme Court? An excerpt from Aashok Malik’s this post ‘A Curious Choice’ might interest you.

Of course, the issue of principle is linked to that of personality. In arguing its case, the UPA government cited a precedent from 1999, when a committee comprising the then PM and home minister (both BJP), Lok Sabha speaker (Telugu Desam) and leaders of the Opposition in the two Houses of Parliament (both Congress) chose the chairman of the National Human Rights Commission. The Congress representatives proposed Justice AH Ahmadi. They were outvoted by the others, who opted for Justice JS Verma.

In invoking this example, the UPA made its point about unanimity being ideal but not mandatory. Even so, it let slip a decidedly clumsy comparison. Ahmadi has had a mixed record since leaving the Supreme Court. He was controversial as chair of the trust governing the Bhopal Memorial Hospital set up by Union Carbide for victims of the 1984 gas leak. It has been alleged that patients at the hospital — survivors of the gas leak — were subjected to drug trials by pharmaceutical companies without their consent. This would make Ahmadi an odd choice for any sort of human rights capacity. In contrast, Verma is cherished as among India’s finest jurists. As with Thomas, why did the Congress believe Justice Ahmadi was more suitable than anyone else? The answer would be fascinating.

Prudent Indian.

Madari-Roadside-Entertainer-With-Dancing-Monkey

 

If you ever wondered how shameless, duplicitous, cunning one can be! Then surely you have not met a true CONman yet.

On October 6th, 2010. Rahul Gandhi (40 years old Middle Aged) Clown Prince of CON party once again shot his mouth off and equated RSS with SIMIMiddle Aged Clown Prince with serious ‘foot in mouth’ disease is reported to have parroted the lie his CON party has been peddling for years. Middle Aged Clown Prince said and I quote,

“Both these organisations have hardline fundamentalist ideologies.”

When pointed out to 40 years Old Middle Aged Clown Prince that SIMI is a ‘proscribed’ organization while RSS is not, the Scion of CON party said and I quote,

“…both these organisations preach fundamentalist ideologies. That’s a fact and nothing is going to change that fact,”

Rahul Middle Aged Gandhi is not to be blamed for this gaffe and/or outright stupendous statement. Well, at least I give him benefit of ‘Ignorance’. I never expect any ‘sensible’ thing from him even. Since the Middle Aged man has neither grown up ‘mentally’ nor has become Man enough to think independently still.

This reflects truly the ‘mantel’ of this 40 years Old Middle Aged man whom the Paid Media Maharathis has been projecting as ‘future PM’ of India. Sic!

But then Rahul just ‘parroted’ what has been tutored to him by The Most CON man of CON party –Digvijay Singh. Who has been given the ‘onerous’ task of making Rahul a true CON prince.

‘Yatha Guru Tatha Chela’ is an old Indian wisdom. With a Teacher as shameless, duplicitous and cunning as Diggy Raja is, will Rahul be any different? Sic!

Recently on Karan Thapar’s Devils’ Advocate the ‘UGLIEST’ face of CON man came to fore. Not that we didn’t know it- only this time it is well recorded. Watch Just how shameless this man is!

Watch This…

Two Three quick points …

- Diggy Raja (Loathsome CON man) accuses RSS because ‘alleged’ Hindu Terrorists had RSS background thus blame RSS, but CON party is not to be blamed for Sikh Massacre perpetrated by CON party GOONS under Rajiv Gandhi’s Watch?

- For this Sick CON man planting bomb is terror act (which indeed is) but dragging out innocent Sikhs Men, Women, Children on to streets and put on fire ALIVE is not terror act!!!! SICK IS HE NOT???

- Further all those who he names as Hindu terrorists and ‘implicated’ are yet to be convicted. While CON party REWARDED Tytler with Ministry and Sajjan is still not convicted even after 25 years.

- This bugger is just ‘sorry’ for GENOCIDE OF SIKH MEN, WOMEN, CHILDREN who were butchered since it happened after math of Indira’s assassination!

- This loathsome man doesn’t find killing 3000 SIKHS by CON goons as an act of COMMUNAL terror!

- This CON Man visited the houses of SIMI terrorists killed in Batala House encounter but has no tear for Inspector M C Sharma who sacrificed life in line of duty!

SICK! SICK! SICK!

Forewarning/Forecasting : This loathsome CON man- Diggy Raja- could become ( if I believe whispers in New Delhi’s corridors of Power) an interregnum Prime Minister some time in 2012 when your President PP retires and Mata’s Prime Minion MMS shifts to Rashtrapati  Bhawan. BEWARE.

Hope will be around to see if I am right or not.

Prime Minion among all Minions of Mata Balidaan Moorti.

Prime Minion among all Minions of Mata Balidaan Moorti.

Just about anything and everything related with CWG are bringing us – a Billion Strong Nation –just one thing day in night out :  #SHAME #SHAME AND #SHAME.

I am infuriated with the CON men/women/Babas and Babe Minions of Mata Balidaan Moorti led by the ‘servile’ Prime Minion ManMohan Singh a man who is ‘Alleged’ to be ‘Honest’.

HUH! Honest my foot.

# CWG has become symbolic about all most everything that is rotten; corrupt to core, inefficient irresponsible, unaccountable, negligent, shameless, non governance this United Progressive Alliance II represents.

I am not surprised if foreigners found a Dog shitting on his bed when I see them all around me shitting all over the place (!) Albeit all are not dogs.

On Tweeter many friends rightly pointed out that Mani Shankar Aiyaar is the man most responsible. Absolutely right, this ‘gas bag’ deliberately delayed the CWG work to almost sabotaging it. His Marxists leanings were well reflected in his belief of ‘Sabotaging the system from within. He is ‘the’ loathsome politician most of us watch in typical Hindi Movies.

But then, is he alone to be blamed for? NO? To be fair, Maverick Aiyaar never concealed his contempt for the CWG neither he sat with lips sealed, he had been vocal throughout in his criticism of this ‘Tamasha’. Knowing his attitude and the prestige (whatever) attached with this International Event what would any Concerned, Prudent Prime Minister have done? After all in the Indian scheme of Governance it is the Prime Minister’s prerogative and responsibility to oversee who heads a ministry and how. No?

BUT, what did this Prime Minion of Sonia do? The Prime Minion just allowed this ‘Joker’ in the Ministry whose prime responsibility is/was to plan, execute and oversee preparations for CWG! Sic! For full TWO YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WTF was the Prime Minion waiting for? Either the Prime Minion was hand in glove with Mani Shankar and wanted to sabotage CWG OR was he just as usual Indifferent! What else explains this inordinate negligence to shunt this reluctant Minister out from the Ministry?

Obviously this inordinate delay on part of the Prime Minion to take just ONE small step, CWG projects were delayed – thus astronomically inflating prices/costs and resulting in shoddy planning and pathetic execution on all and every front.

A look at all who are/were involved in this ‘extravaganza’ and benefited financially. Almost every agency involved in #CWG –barring MCD- is directly controlled by CON party men/women. MCD is governed by BJP but had almost negligible role to play – so some respite for BJP, much to chagrin of CON paid MSM or they would have pinned all blame on the ‘Communal Party’. J

Point that I am trying to drive is: Why blame Kalmadi alone? Why Kalmadi has become a face of all and everything that is wrong with CWG? This farce is not Kalmadi’s doing though I give him no ‘Clean Chit’.

The Root of this mess lies deep somewhere else and Suresh Kalmadi is just made a villain of #CWG. WRONG it is to PIN all blame on SK (he is no Saint and is equally culpable) equally wrong it would be to pin down Mani Shankar too. Get to the root; these two are just offshoots of a Branch. The Malaise is much deeper and not very far away from 7 RCR and 10 JP. Period.

Much has been said in Media about ASIAD 82. I remember, I  was very young then and in the same year my Immediate Cousin was born and we named him ‘Appu’.  The Paid MSM has been attributing success of that to Rajiv Gandhi – true to some extent –  but Jagmohan Ji was at the hub of all that. I have no hesitation to admit that both Indira and Rajiv did a reasonably good job. BUT THEN BOTH WERE INDIANS.

Worst is:  we have a Prime Minion whose sole objective has been to just keep on hanging to ‘Her Majesty’s  Pallu’. What else you expect from a man who’s only OBJECTIVE has ever been to ‘ensure retirement benefits’.

Prime Minion people say is the most ‘Honest’ and a man of ‘Integrity’!!!!!!!!!!!

Fail to understand on Prime Minion’s  ‘Honesty’ quotient as he…

Allows A Raja to keep looting public money?

Allows Laloo to fudge accounts as Minister for Railways in UPA I?

Allows CON party to keep plundering loot in the name of CWG?

Allows all ‘Aam Adami’ to be screwed over prices?

The List is endless as far as the Prime Minion’s ‘Honesty Quotient’ is concerned. ‘Honest’? My Foot!

As far as Prime Minion’s Integrity to Mata Sonia is concerned: It is absolute and final. Make no mistake.

He will STAKE EVEN THE HONOR OF BHARAT IN THE SERVICE OF MAA BALIDAAN MOORTI BUT WILL MAKE NO COMPROMISE ON MATA’S INTEREST ESPECIALLY FINANCIAL.

Make no Mistake when he is ‘touted’ as the Best ‘Economist’ ever – though you and me are bleeding through noses and A*** for making ends meet = he still is the ‘Best’ for those with whom his ‘integrity’ lies.

Bhay Ho!

PS: Before you accuse Kalmadi or any, do get to root cause.

Why should not we question Rajiv Gandhi’s complicity in Bhopal aftermath Mr. Manish Tiwari? What is ‘unpatriotic’ about it?

Why should not we question Rajiv Gandhi’s complicity in Bhopal aftermath Mr. Manish Tiwari? What is ‘unpatriotic’ about it?

CONgress party is full of too ‘clever by half Lawyers’ of all hues, colors, size and sexes. Manish Tiwari MP from Ludiana, Punjab is one of them. Unfortunately for him he is also spokesman for the party which more often than not, finds self in a soup.

CONgress has been facing flak from all directions for its ‘confirmed’ role in making Warren Anderson escape for good from the law of land. Now since we all know almost every detail about his arrest, flight to New Delhi by MP Govt’s state plane. It is also in public knowledge that the then foreign secretary had arranged a meeting of his (Warren Anderson) with the then President Giani Zail Singh and then Home Minister PV Narsimha Rao. Thereafter he was allowed to fly back to the safe and secure confines of his Home back in USA.

Now all the above are facts which even the CONgress is not denying and so are the sequences of events too are not challenged by them either. Main players are all CONgress men too. Both @ centre and in MP CONgress party was in power. So what and where is the confusion and why responsibility for letting off WA is not fixed? Here it is where CONgress party is in a dilemma.

Dilemma is: How to salvage Rajiv Gandhi’s reputation or whatever is left of that. Because all fingers lead to only one direction – for this all sordid drama around arrest of WA and thereafter   allowed to go free- and that is in Rajiv Gandhi’s. No one is willing to buy that Arjun Singh acted on his own and Rajiv had nothing to do with it. Rajiv had Foreign portfolio too so it is bizarre to think he knew nothing when his own Foreign Secretary was involved? And this I say assuming he didn’t know as PM then!But then, this ‘excuse’ again is not a good reflection on him. If I remember right then he was President of CONgress party too.

To make matters worse CONgress party leaders outwit other fellow CON men by issuing statements of all types of contradictory to others. But most damning one is from one PM (Pranab Muherjee) who would never be PM (Prime Minister). This is a subject of one full blog, some other time. Pranab Da made a statement that Arjun Singh took this decision to send WA out of Bhopal for worsening Law and Order situation in the city. It is laughable even if we believe this was the case. But then India is huge and they could have locked up WA anywhere safe and presented to court.

In short, CONgress and its minions are finding it extremely difficult to sound ‘authentic’ while trying to salvage Rajiv Gandhi’s sullied image. Matters become worse as Madame Sonia ‘Maino’ Gandhi’s pleasure is supreme most for CON men/women/Babas and Babes to ‘survive’ in party and share loot of public money. Hence the frustration. Frustration is more palpable for those who have to appear on 24X7 Nuisance channels as spokesperson for the Gandhi ‘Familia’.

Frustration and confusion is very hard to miss on the faces of Jayanti Natrajan and Manish Tiwari while defending indefensible. This despite the fact that, PadamShris Anchors of 24X7 Nuisance Channels are ‘equally’ sympathetic, if not more to the Madame. To wriggle out of this very difficult situation these spokespersons have resorted to ‘inanities’ of all hues.

Latest one is from Liar Lawyer spokesman of CONgress Mr. Manish Tiwari. :)  Mr. Manish says that,

“Those blaming Rajiv Gandhi on Bhopal issue not patriotic”.

Now this is rich, indeed! Since when questing a PM has become synonyms with Patriotism?

Manish says,

“Rajiv Gandhi or his government had nothing to do with it. It is baseless and cheap to insinuate that a Prime Minister, who had to sacrifice his mother just one and half month ago (before assuming his office) and then sacrificed his own life five years later for the nation’s integrity, allowed somebody to escape out of the country under any pressure (from the US),”

Please note,

“a Prime Minister, who had to sacrifice his mother just one and half month ago (before assuming his office) and then sacrificed his own life” :)

If this is what are his drafting skills than Lawyer Manish’s clients better be aware. :)

Now look at another gem from one All India Women Congress chief Prabha Thakur! In a statement she strongly objected to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi seeking a reply from Congress President Sonia Gandhi on the Bhopal issue.

She says,

“Modi’s move to seek a reply from Gandhi on this issue is a cheap attempt to mislead people of the country… people know that Gandhi had no connection with politics 25 years ago,”

Outright Stupid! Sonia is now the Whole Sole Mallik of CONgress party and it is in this capacity she should clarify her CONgress party and Rajiv Gandhi’s (then PM and her late Husband) role and complicity in whole saga.

Idiocy of the LadyThakur is amazing! She says,

“They are now politicising the issue, which is like applying salt instead of balm to the wounds of the victims. People know Modi’s politics of baking bread on the pyres.”

May I ask these CONgress spokes person one question? What is to politicize? These stupid parrots each time when u ask them ‘Do not politicize issue’. Be it rising prices, foreign policy blunders, ministers corruption, farmers suicide, subversion of democratic institutions or/and anything which is directly related to public and affects them, These worthies have a stock reply ‘do not politicize’. What to politicize then, Idiots? Yours or my ass? Huh!

Her reference to Narrender Bhai Modi as

People know Modi’s politics of baking bread on the pyres.”

Her own rhetoric Boomerang on her and CONgress. It was CONgress party PM and CM who traded tragic death of 15000 INDIANS by setting free A FOREIGNER who was and is principally responsible for their deaths. Sonia led CONgress had let go Italian Mr. Q too.

Country has a right to know WHY and for HOW MUCH CON party’s PM and CM traded off 15000 dead Indians keeping the interest of Foreigner Businessman’s interest over dead INDIANS.

Sonia ‘Maino’ Gandhi will have to answer better sooner than later.

If questioning Rajiv Gandhi is ‘unpatriotic’ so I am unpatriotic like billion plus others. I do not need a certificate from a MORON like Manish Tiwari Huh!  Period.

PI.

Ps: Meanwhile CONgress spokespersons keep making fool of selves please. :)

Dow shall be liable

Dow shall be liable

The year 1984 has been a year full of unfortunate happenings affecting the trajectory of India adversely for long time to come.  The year was most bloodiest since 1947.

Just a look at 1984 the year it was.

June 3-6 Operation Blue Star.

The most sacred place of Sikhs, Golden Temple was raided by Armed Forces to hound and hunt Jarnail Singh Bhinderwal – a Frankenstein of Indira Gandhi’s  own creation to outwit Akalis – resulting in Huge loss of human lives both Civil and Army Jawans; massive destruction to the Temple Complex and very wounded psyche of otherwise brave and patriotic Sikh Community.

Nov. 31th. Indira Gandhi Assassination.

Then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was brutally murdered by her own Sikh Guards.

Nov. 31st to December 4.

Following Indira’s assassination, Cong party goons brutally dragged Sikhs out on streets and were set on fire. I saw this with my own eyes on Delhi streets. Over 3000 Sikhs who had nothing to do with Indira’s murder were burnt alive, only because they shared religion with those who killed Indira!

All this happened under Rajiv Gandhi’s watch.

Till date no one has been punished instead some of those who led Mobs and directed killing of Sikhs were rewarded with Minister Ship by Rajiv and subsequent Congress Governments. Sic!

Intervening night of 2 and 3rd December. Bhopal.

On this fateful night over 15,000 men/women/ children and countless cattle /birds/animals breathed Poisonous methyl isocyanate while asleep and never woke up again. One of the biggest Industrial accidents it was.

Now, I recounted all above mentioned incidents/accidents because in all above there is a common link and that is: Congress. Indira Gandhi had popularized ‘Foreign Hand’ theory in about almost every thing where and when she wanted to deflect people’s attention from her own follies. It is the same party’s HAND which is visible.

Now, although Bhopal Tragedy wasn’t Congress made/engineered but the disaster management post Gas leak was a disaster of its own magnitude. Right from relief to investigating to apprehending culprits to even filing court case and bringing culprits to book- the HAND of Con party is all too visible.

Be it for Political reasons/gains or Monetary, Con party had/have no compunctions in shortchanging interest of people – so called Aam Adami – it claims to represent.

If CHACHA Ji’s singly minded pursuance of ‘his own tryst with destiny’, led to partition of Bharat. Then Indira’s cynical and manipulative politics of up man ship led to not only her own gruesome end but to most Horrendous Massacre of Sikhs. Prime Minion of Sonia calls Gujarat Post Godhra riots as Holocaust but keeps mum on this! Sic! (Read this please)

Rajiv Gandhi then Prime Minister not only presided over the Killings of Sikhs by party goons but justified it too. All those who led mobs to kill Sikhs were rewarded with Ministerial berths, Governors etc. 26 years has passed since but not one Culprit has been punished! Sic!

Arjun Singh as CM of Madya Pradesh then in 1984, personally ensured that Warren Anderson comes to no harm and was safely escorted out of country even when his complicity in Bhopal Tragedy was apparent to all. The same fossil minded Arjun Singh not long ago had called all Sikhs as murderers of Indira! Sic! (Read this)

Yesterday Bhopal court pronounced a judgment in the Bhopal Gas Tragedy. Expectantly it is ‘too little too late’. Why I say ‘expectantly’? Is because the case filed by CBI was diluted and filed under not so stringent laws, so this judgment was on expected lines, why blame the Judge? Blame lies elsewhere in Con party’s hand.

I am disappointed with Courts too. Had they wanted they could have expedited or minimum would have asked Government /CBI to file under stringent laws? After all Judiciary has every now and then shown their fangs what is called as ‘Judicial activism’!

I am not ranting against Con Party, but I write all this to make you realize how bad the things were and still are. This all I write in utter frustration as nothing has improved since then. And new government ‘allegedly’ led by Prime Minion of Sonia  is no better than earlier Con governments if not worst.

Deeply Anguished.

Devil’s Advocate:  LKM, IPL & ‘Scary Clowns’ behind curtains.

LKM, IPL & 'Scary Clowns'.

LKM, IPL & 'Scary Clowns'.

It has been a week but the sordid IPL drama refuses to die down. What started as a Minister caught with his hands in jar and subsequently made to quit office has taken a bizarre turn.

My brief notes on some key issues.

1. It is stupid to equate Shashi and Modi as MSM has been trying to.

Shashi being MOS is accountable to citizens and since it is reasonably clear that he misused his office to benefit his lady friend is guilty in public eye. As for Modi, well he is accountable to authorities concerned if he has done some murky dealings.

If Modi is corrupt- if only for argument sake and since he doesn’t hold public office too – how does it absolve Shashi, who has misused public office!

Shashi had to go and did eventually, but he could have salvaged his reputation by resigning voluntarily. As for Mata Ji and Prime Minister Minion of Mata Ji’s stand on corruption is concerned- do not kid me please :). Not long ago Prime Minister Minion of Mata Ji had felicitated fellow ‘country man’ of Mata Ji to flee away with slush money.

2. IPL issue rocks Parliament.

Raising IPL issue in Parliament would have made sense only if Shashi had not resigned. Then it would have been legitimate for MPs to question Shashi and his presence in the cabinet. But now it was a sorry spectacle to see MPs of all hues splitting hair on something which is anything but a matter of National Interest. Speeches by Laloos and alkies made Parliament and MPs look stupid not only to all Indians but to the entire World.

3. Media. Twists and Spins.

MSM legitimately has every right to highlight any issue which has element of public interest involved. IPL as a national attraction and Shashi as a minister both warranted attention and scrutiny of MSM. And to be fair, MSM did a good job and hope shall continue to put the entire IPL under microscopic scrutiny without sparing anyone.

BUT then here is the cliché. MSM would just stop short of naming anyone which/who could prove embarrassing for their favorite party and threaten this Govt.

NO. I am not making any wild allegation against the Main Stream Media. I am stating a fact please read on shall elaborate after couple of sentences since I am trying to make my arguments in a structured manner.

4. Hounding Lalit Kumar Modi.

a.)  Soon after Shashi was discarded to the dustbin of history, MSM and their political masters  shifted focus and their collective wrath is unleashed on LKM. LKM made the Govt it’s enemy by making public MOS Shashi’s ‘dangerous liaisons’ and ‘sweat money’ deals for ‘sweetheart’. It was LKM’s major folly. Although LKM drew first blood but he grossly misjudged CONgress party’s vendetta politics.

b.)   MSM too has joined this cacophony for two reasons. One- MSM know the public interest in IPL and Two- since MSM by hounding LKM need to justify and earn their Padam Shris they were awarded in advance  by Mata Sonia ‘Maino’ Gandhi.

5. Well! Is LKM a Saint?

I have no reason to believe so or otherwise till all facts are out in public domain. And no way am I defending him either. I am just making notes as I see things are unfolding. BUT it would be injustice to LKM if we ignore his efforts and enterprising skills to make IPL a leading Global Brand. Being a student of management, I salute him.

I believe if IT and ED do their work unbiased and without any malicious intent, he might come out clean. BUT then key words are UNBIASED, without any Prejudice and malicious intent.

Will it be so? :) Come on! None of us is so naïve.

6. How will the whole controversy end?

ONE basic fact.

IPL is too big a money machine for all, Cricket administrators, sponsors, cricketers, politicians, MSM, franchise owners and fans too. So IPL will stay as it is in the interest of all. I believe IPL also benefits many fringe players like Hospitality industry, Tourism, Travel and many many more. In short it does give an opportunity for everyone to benefit directly or indirectly.

MY PREDICTION.

You need not be a ‘Political Pundit’ to figure out how will this whole drama end. I stick my neck out and predict…

@ 1.)  Govt would unleash all its might on BCCI (as Pranab announced) and in matter of no time will have thick enough dossier on everybody especially Sharad Pawar and Prafful Patel .

@ 2.) Outside public glare (but with complicit MSM quoting ‘secretive sources’ and leaking ‘selective disinformation’) these dossiers would then be used to blackmail and to force LKM being thrown out. Thus Mata Ji avenged. MSM pleased. BCCI Honchos back to business.

@ 3.) Govt would then Publicly announce some committee or other and probe would go on till cows come home- then soon a new issue would replace this one for ‘Tweepple’ to Tweet and for me to Blog.

Ps: Well, I think LKM too would be accommodated one way or another, after all he is too important and know really too much. But at the same time I am really worried too for LKM as he ‘really knows too much’. Politicians and vested interests do not really like those who know too much about them. This is most ‘scary part’.

Perfidious Media’ v/s Narrender Modi

Perfidious Media’ v/s Narrender Modi

Hate Modi is an industry and many have benefited from it (except State Congress). MSM Maharathis have earned selves ‘Padam Shris’ from Sonia ‘Maino’ Gandhi for defaming NaMo and for spreading lies.Some NGOs made a carrer out of it. But then truth has a habbit of surfacing and here too it surfaces, once again. Need we trust ‘Perfidious Media’ again?

Narendra Modi’s open letter to the nation about SIT’s summons to him and NaMo’s alleged non compliance as ‘propagated‘ by ‘Perfidious Media’.

Full text of letter is as follow.

My beloved countrymen,

Namaskar,

I am constrained to write to you with a deep sense of anguish. Since last eight years, canards have been spread against me. For the past one week, if we analyse the allegations leveled against me, then the truth will become evident. Truth cannot be suppressed. It is now my duty to place before you the facts that brings out the importance of understanding what the truth really is.

After the 2002 Godhra incidents, I had categorically said in the Vidhan Sabha and in public that no one is above the Indian Constitution and the law, even if he happens to be the chief minister of a state. These are not mere words. My actions have reflected this statement in its true spirit.  I assure you that this will be my stand in the future.

In spite of that, some vested interests, without losing a single opportunity and with malicious pleasure and without bothering to ascertain the truth based on mere whims and fancies, have been tarnishing the good image of Gujarat, my government and me.

Recently, there has been a systematic campaign to defame Gujarat through propagation of false reports titled ‘Special Investigation Team (SIT) summons Narendra Modi'; ‘Narendra Modi did not appear before SIT’ and ‘Modi has shown disrespect to Supreme Court and SIT’. Such baseless allegations are being leveled once again against me to defame Gujarat.

I am therefore compelled to place the facts before my countrymen.

FACTS:

As soon as newspapers began reporting that Modi has been summoned by the SIT, the government spokesperson immediately said that Shri Modi is bound by the law of the land and the Indian Constitution. He has always extended his cooperation to every procedure of law. And he is committed to do so in the future.

It is a matter of grave concern and needs investigation as to why and who started spreading lies that ‘SIT summons Narendra Modi on March 21, 2010′.

The purveyors of untruth failed even to think that March 21, 2010 happens to be a Sunday and a public holiday.

These purveyors of lies even did not once bother to check whether the key SIT officers, who are appointed by the Supreme Court, were present in Gujarat on March 21, 2010.

SIT had not fixed March 21, 2010 for my appearance. To say that I was summoned on March 21 is completely false. I shall respond to the SIT fully respecting the law and keeping in view the dignity of a body appointed by the Supreme Court.

The date of 21st March 2010 was invented by some vested interest and as a part of their effort to interfere in the due process of law. They wanted to paint me as a person who refused to respond to the SIT. This country has in the last twenty four hours witnessed a campaign of disinformation in which a section of the media became an instrument of the disinformers. I hope this section will now take corrective steps.

My beloved countrymen,

The people of Gujarat and this country have identified those who are defaming Gujarat continuously since 2002. But I want to tell the truth; spreading falsehoods has only one single purpose and that is to instigate people. It is a sinful action which will harm the working of a democratic state.  Seen in the backdrop of events in the last 24 hours, it shows that there is a nexus among the vested interests in spreading lies against me, in order to defame me. This machination has come unstuck and the people have seen through this charade.

The government of Gujarat has always honoured and cooperated with the investigative agencies, commissions and Supreme Court looking into Godhra and post-Godhra incidents.  And that is why I never thought of giving a public statement on this issue.

Despite unbearable pain, I decided to maintain silence in the belief that the due process of law would take its own course.

But now, as the lies reach a crescendo as never before, I am compelled to bring the facts before the countrymen. I also consider it my humble duty.

I hope the truth is not twisted by the purveyors of untruth to misguide the investigation. And I expect that the media would bring my deep pain and despair to the notice of the people.

Thanks,

Narendra Modi
