Day 242


Yesterday, I was talking to an old friend of mine. We were talking on general topics. Then we came to politics. We were discussing about the election campaign in Uttar Pradesh. He told me about Rahul Gandhi’s election campaign. I was surprised to know that how much these politicians lay to public. During the election campaign, Rahul Gandhi tried to connect himself with the poor man. He was having his lunch in a hut of a poor man. But his plate consisted of good quality of rice along with chicken dish. There was a bottle of mineral water. Now how many households of the poor man across the country afford to have such dishes in lunch? I was wondering that how many poor people use to drink mineral water. If the answer to these two questions is none then it simply means that Rahul Gandhi isn’t connected to the poor people neither he has any intention of that. And this isn’t the case of Rahul Gandhi. All the politicians make appearances during the election campaigns only. They aren’t bothering about the real miserable condition of the poor population of the country. They do these type of publicity stunts to have the momentarily support of the mass to win the elections. If Rahul Gandhi is really worried about the poor people and if he really wants to be connected with them then he has to live with them without his security guards and away from the flashlights of media’s cameras. He has to face the daily difficulties which a poor faces in the daily life when the shopkeeper of the public distribution system sells the commodities after making a poor man wait for hours. Rahul Gandhi has to face the problem of electricity and water just like millions of poor people in India. Just having lunch at a poor man’s house or carrying the basket on his head isn’t making him the real poor person of India.

You r r8 dr.....Politicians do those things only to gain more voters..If Rahul is seriously concerned about the poor people of our country then he should have stay with them for sometime say one month to realize the difficulty which is being faced by the poor..And at the same time he should have to sacrifice all the luxury even his security.then only he will realize their pain for being poor....

Day 397

Well, I’m confused today about the topic. Actually, I have two topics today. Obviously, one is about the current tension between India...
