Madat Kijea Soniaji!

For those who have seen Shrimati Mananiya Mayawati didi deliver a discourse on TV or in person, they will be able to share the acute pain and embarrassment I feel every time she crowns herself as the undisputed future PM of the country! Now I ain’t no expert on the subject and I don’t know the first thing about running a country, but what on earth is going on?!?!?!

The electoral vote bank sure is topmost on the agenda for the honorable ministers but it’s like an employee who joins an organization as a trainee and demands to immediately become the global CEO!!! Yes I know this sounds like an exaggerated example but I’m sure you are getting my flow.
Soniaji’s government has definitely left a lot to be desired, given the very basic problem of a crumbling infrastructure, but then again this government might be our only hope of a not completely bleak future – not because of a brilliant performance, but instead because of the fact that there ain’t no better alternative!!
Forget about the big glaring blotches in her report card created by the huge embarrassment caused by another ambitious Shrimati Mamata Banerjee who inspite of not being in power managed to bring the WB govt to its knees and literally almost single-handedly threw out one of India’s most respected and influential business conglomerates from WB. Mrs. Gandhi and the central government were more than conspicuous by their absence right thru the entire fiasco which even caught the international media’s attention…but then again, that subject is better left alone…
Mrs. Gandhi, I was truly impressed when I heard you openly take on Mayawati didi’s challenge of getting you arrested, more so because your retort was in shudh Hindi bhasha. Hats off to you on this achievement!
But while you’ve been busy brushing up your language skills, you seem to have lost sight of the plight of your people – had you managed both better, it would have been a true victory. Especially when it comes to your people in the north….In very simple terms, we common folk call it multi-tasking!

Our very own quick-witted and very smart adernia Shri Lalu Prasad Yadav has once again proved that he is a master at his own game – he recently launched J&K’s first train service…while at the same forum, Mrs. Gandhi was unable to provide even an ounce of emotional or mental relief to the residents of the state as tension on the streets outside the train station was still palpable…it is a sad value attached to human life…

Also lets forget about the latest incident of the sudden layoffs by the Jet-Kingfisher duo where 800 people were retrenched over night without warning, only soon to be joined by another 1000+! Though this has been reversed now, the incident was appalling, not because of the layoff, but more so because of the way it was handled by the airlines. To add to that ofcourse Mr. Prafful Patel once again cut a sorry figure of the government when he meekly evaded questions from the media on what role he plays in the aviation ministry when he is completely unable to protect airlines from bleeding losses and then he is even more helpless when it comes to protecting the interests of those associated with the airlines…

If my fingers willed, I would have happily continued typing, but now even my eyes are running out of battery and I’m finally going to stop ranting and raving…but Soniaji if you are listening, while your undoubted success on the nuclear program has once again established India on the global map, it is important that you do not loose sight of what’s going on in your own backyard…and we have not even started talking about the farmer suicides and bomb blasts yet…

Point is, are you really listening and if you are, do you really care…………………

nainaji,

it's not so much of a case of whether the congress cares...the UPA govt is a little too democratic, if anything. with so many diff parties, being led by the congress in this coalition, there are bound to be a million agendas. and indeed, the nano fiasco in WB did not need intervention by the Centre. it was a failure at the state governmental level.
one thing i really do not agree with u about is the point u made on infrastructure...if anything, the BJP-led NDA govt did a lot more in a single term than the congress has done for the remaining 50-odd years or so...not to forget the strong take on international issues, including commissioning india's nuclear weapons program, the golden quadrilateral project, allowing FIIs to invest in india...
the congress is not a party which has evolved. it chooses instead to dwell on its past glory, a sycophantic electorate, and an elitist leadership. it's about time the congress woke up and smelled the fertiliser

i am nt quite a supporter of congress... as one of the comments promptly mentions that congress dewlls on the history it created once.. but we need smeone who is willing to look ahead.. we indians get contended very soon and hence we may be short-sighted... der is so much to be done in this country that fr next 100yrs we dont have anything to look back..and congress is certainly nt the party which can carry out this mamoth task.. al they can do & play is vote bank politics..and tht is their only forte in recent years..while i quite personally dont like the BJP apporach at times on certain issues esp communal.. trust they have all the will and pace to change this country and their first term speaks loud fr their acheievements...
