October 15, 2012 Afraid?

Since past few days political scenario in India has been witnessing its lowest point. Being the largest democracy in the world, we are looked upon for examples. But certainly, we have delivered the adverse.

What people have seen is that the opposition party, BJP, in Loksabha has been raising its voice in favour of the CAG report which has pointed out to alleged loss of approx Rs. 1.86 lakh crore in the allocation of coal blocks in the country. BJP MPs have been using their right to protest to disrupt the sessions of the assembly and have been demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh. The Leaders of Opposition Smt. Sushma Swaraj, Arjun Jaitley and others have been forerunners in stalling the proceedings of the house. I am not sure why are they afraid of discussions.

What is it with BJP and hatred towards assembly sessions? If you have closely observed, there has been a lot of similarities in working of both BJP and Congress, at the centre and at the state level respectively. Gujarat being my forte, I will focus on the scenario here. Dr. Manmohan Singh has clearly stated that he takes the responsibility of the decisions made by the then ministry under his command and he is willing to debate and discuss about the report openly in the House. But the Leader of Opposition and supporting MPs have been acting like hooligans in the House; constantly shouting and disrespecting the positions of the dignitaries sitting there. Similarly when we wanted to discuss and debate on the CAG report on the alleged corruption of more than Rs. 26,000 crore in the regime of Narendra Modi, the report was put to table on the last day of the assembly session. Further, no more sessions were allocated, rather allowed, to discuss on the report.

BJP and Allied parties have been ‘mis’using the medium of social network and paid media to exaggerate the real picture of the loss mentioned by CAG. Although people who were really interested in knowing the facts, have read the report through newspapers and know what I have been telling here. Even the BJP-led Chhattisgarh government has pronounced the Rs. 1,054 crore potential loss in the state by CAG, hypothetical! Frankly, the role played by the opposition parties in Gujarat and at the centre has been fairly opposite. The activeness of Gujarat Congress has brought the BJP government in Gujarat to their heels. Once the prowess of its Chief Minister, has turned into his woes. Watching Congress reaching to smallest of the small person in Gujarat and the kind of support we have been getting since past few weeks has given BJP insomnia.

All I know is that at the end common man will be the winner. He has seen that the BJP government that neglected his basic needs for survival, is now coming up with new ‘schemes’ to attract his attention. Common man in Gujarat is practically laughing at it…

Jai Hind!
