Day 347

I know that these days I’m focusing more and more on politics and particularly whatever is happening in Delhi. But right now, Delhi is the only state where many things are happening for the first time. For the first time, a sitting Chief Minister has lost her seat by the margin of 22,168 votes. First time, the biggest party in the newly elected assembly has shown its incapability to form the government. First time, a debuted party has won 28 seats. First time the second largest party has send the letters to two main national parties on few issues. There are few more things in this list. But right now, whatever is happening there is nothing more than drama. That’s certain. The latest thing is gathering the views of Delhi’s public through all means. I’m coming to this point only.
Now BJP has sent a 14 point letter to Aam Aadmi Party in context to the new drama of AAP. One of those questions tallied with my own thoughts. The question is that while running a government, the Chief Minister and the Ministers have to sign various files and documents, and then the AAP will take public opinion everyday like this? This is the thing which there in my mind also. Will AAP go for public opinion daily for taking the decision on each and every file? Then they have to form a new ministry to record the survey opinion. This is really something to laugh about. Now the AAP is using cheap tricks to convert the whole thing as some reality show on TV. Their act of survey is sounding like the reality show where the host ask the audience to vote for the contestants. The same thing is being done by Arvind Kejriwal and his party men. This is sort of playing with the emotions of the people to be in the limelight and to save itself from being branded as villains.
Second question in my mind is that during the sworn in ceremony as Chief Minister and Minister, the person has to take the oath in the name of Indian constitution that they will not disclose the secret things to anyone during their tenure. Now what will AAP government do if they will get some important file about which they have to be secretive then will they take the mobile in their hands and will ask the public to give their opinion? Then it will be clear violation of the constitutional process. If they won’t do anything like this then their promise of taking opinion will be broken. I know that Arvind Kejriwal isn’t that much simple as he pretend to be. Even he knows the proceedings of the government. Right now he is in ego of defeating Sheila Dixit and becoming the debuting party’s convenor that got this much seats in the assembly election. As I have repeatedly said that all the activities of Arvind Kejriwal and his party is nothing more than a drama and AAP is now trying to save its skin from the allegations. That’s it. Nothing more is happening.

In my view, the President’s Rule should be imposed in Delhi. This will not only stop the ongoing drama but will give each party a nice opportunity to work out for the re election. I think that people of Delhi should now be able to know that opinion poll and all these things are nothing but a cheap publicity stunt. It should allow any party or politicians to cheat them. Rest of the things are now in the hold of time. Only time will tell the true picture.

Day 346

There are a lot of things to write. I’m confused about what to write? Last night, I was asking the same question to myself. I got the answer. At the moment, the hot topic is the formation of government in Delhi. The high voltage drama which is going on Delhi is known to everyone. The Aam Aadmi Party is busy in its drama. Yesterday, I was watching a news channel. It was saying that the Aam Aadmi Party has sought time till Monday. Its writing 25 lakhs letters to every voter in Delhi and have asked their answers by Monday. On Sunday, they will announce the result of this workout. According to them, it’s a measure to know the mood of the Delhi’s public to know its view about the government formation. I have seen the news also that at Sarojini Nagar in Delhi, the leaders of Congress, BJP and AAP was sharing the dais. Dr Kumar Vishwas was saying that they will take the public opinion for everything. I think that now it’s a cover up to avoid the President’s Rule in Delhi. The public opinion is just cover up to take the U turn from AAP’s previous statement of not taking support either from the Congress or the BJP. Now the Congress has promised support and they have given it in writing also. So, all these things are eye wash to make the people fool.
When AAP came in election, then people were having expectations with them. They thought that we have got alternative of corrupt Congress. But now, AAP is playing game to negotiate with Congress and BJP. Although, BJP has denied giving support but Congress must be demanding something which is kept in dark. Arvind Kejriwal has played the move at the right time. In the name of taking the public opinion, he has sought time from Delhi’s Lt Governor. It’s enough time to deal with Congress and to make deal. It’s impossible to send 25 lakh letters and getting their reply and reading them and then categorising them in yes or no and finally making the decision based on those replies in just 3 days. No one is so innocent that he or she can’t see the basic cause.

Second thing which Arvind Kejriwal has seen is the image of his party. It’s an open secret that neither Congress, nor BJP and AAP are able to make the government. Then it’s clear that it has to be re election after six month. But the voters will get the message that the AAP is sole responsible of the re election. It has snatched seats from both the national parties. So, it’s a risky game of allowing President’s rule in Delhi. Who knows that public will again give their votes to them? It’s true that AAP has won 28 seats but it’s on the basis of popular vote. By popular votes, I mean those votes which a party gets due to sympathy or expectation of doing something new. The public was fed up of corrupt Congress rule. It needed a change. AAP entered the political and election arena just to en cash the anger towards Congress. It succeeded also. Arvind Kejriwal must have thought to that taking support from Congress is much better than going for re election and taking the risk of being the game spoiler. Now I’m waiting for Monday. Let’s see with which excuse AAP faces the public and the media?

Day 345

Today is 1st anniversary of Nirbhaya’s infamous rape tragedy. Last year, on this date, Nirbhaya was brutally raped, tortured and thrown out of the moving bus to die. Later on, she died due to the injuries but she gave the spirit to fight which was waved through out the country. The court has given its verdict. But the matter doesn’t end here only. I salute Nirbhaya for her spirit of fight. The way in which she showed her will power to fight the death is the example of her fighting spirit.
But there are many incidences of rape across the country after Nirbhaya’s case. Actually, in the case of rape, there is vast difference between the number of cases being reported and the number of accused being nabbed and brought to justice. There were many reports where the rape victims were threaten that if they will resist the rape then their consequences will be same as of Nirbhaya. But there wasn’t fall in the rape cases. Even though there were incidences also where the rape incidences were stopped also due to the activeness of police. I know it will sound funny that even police is active. Actually, we are always seeing the news about police’s failures in elaborated manner. But the reports of police activeness are reported in short manner.
Anyway, I’m not going in to that discussion now. Only thing which I want to say is that there are still many cases where the rape accused are roaming freely in open and the victims are suffering. There are many reasons of letting the accused out of the bars. Sometimes, the report is withdrawn due to the threat or pressure. Sometimes, there aren’t proper evidences. There are many incidences where the witnesses turn hostile. Few percent of cases aren’t properly reported. They are being categorised as sexual molestation instead of rape. In these situations, it’s very tough to bring the justice to the victims. Somewhere, the accused or the real culprits are getting benefit of these loopholes and are doing crimes again and again. I think some actions should be taken to create terror for all criminals.

It’s not the job of the government only. Public has to take part in this. People must start protesting the things like molesting and eve teasing. Molesting and eve teasing are the initial steps through which the criminals get strength. They get bolder even they aren’t resisted. So, the public should become zero tolerance in these types of things. Now its time for the government to amendment all the previous laws where the accused are getting minor punishments. The tenure of imprisonment or the degree of punishment should be hike. Most of the Sections of Indian Penal Code are at least 100 years old. Time has come to change those things and to bring new laws according to the present scenario.

Day 344

Today I was going through newspapers. I think that Congress party has gone crazy. The voting out of power has made the party crazy. That’s why the Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are making statement that the verdict of Supreme Court making Gay and Lesbian sex as a punishable crime is totally wrong. It won’t be wrong to see that the central government is always going with the Congress party. Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul Gandhi have said that lesbian and gay sex is not a crime. I don’t understand their logic behind their statements. It’s going beyond my head. Frankly speaking, the same sex sexual relationship isn’t just against the human law but it’s against the natural law itself. Gay or lesbian sex is just for sexual pleasure and nothing more. For reproduction, one has to have sexual intercourse with the opposite sex.
But right now, people, who are in favour of decriminalisation of Section 377 or in favour to scrap it, aren’t seeing this simple thing.  Now the government and the Congress party are in mood to pass an ordinance in the parliament which will reduce the effect of Section 377. Their aim to give relief to millions of people. But the Congress party is taking it as the prestige issue. They are talking as if they are doing some heroic action or are going to bring the ordinance which will benefit every Indian. But in fact, they are out of their senses. That’s why they are taking this issue to cash the sentiment of an illegal minority community which indulges itself in illegal activity. The LGBT activists are saying that their same sex sexual relationship is a natural feeling which they fulfil. But I don’t think that it will be an easy job for the Congress party. I think they have become desperate to do something which will give them popularity. They are aware that their ship is sinking so they are looking for straws to save themselves. Otherwise what was the need to take this issue like this that they got ready to pass an ordinance in favour of something unnatural?
Now it depends on the political will also. Let’s see how many parties are against the ordinance which will decriminalise Section 377? In my view, it shouldn’t be decriminalise. I don’t know how many will agree with me? But I have made it clear that if something is illegal according to the natural laws then its illegal according to the human laws. Let’s see what happens in future?

Day 343

Today, I was just going through the internet version of a daily newspaper. There were news articles about the recent concluded assembly elections particularly about the Delhi assembly elections. The hanged assembly is there in Delhi but there is no other alternative than the re election. Even though, BJP has come as the largest party there but it don’t have much strength to prove its majority. There was a poll conducted. The outcome of the poll was that AAP has come as the favourite party of the Delhi people. But today, I’m not in mood to do another post election analysis. For the last two blogs, I have been doing the same thing. Well, one interesting news article caught my attention.
The news article said that the Supreme Court has set aside the decision of Delhi High Court which the Delhi High Court has given in 2009 related to the decriminalisation of the same sex sexual relationship. The Delhi High Court in 2009 gave the verdict in favour of decriminalisation of the same sex sexual relationship. Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code says that voluntarily intercourse against the order of the nature with any man, woman or animal is a crime and the culprit shall be punished imprisonment for life or fine. Delhi High Court gave verdict that it’s not a criminal offence. Now the Supreme Court has set aside the verdict of Delhi High Court by saying that the only the Parliament is authorized to remove Section 377 the court can not legalise same sex sexual activities. The Supreme Court has said that it’s now legislature’s desirability of deleting Section 377. The judiciary can’t do that.
Now here is the catch. The lesbian and gay organisations are now going to review the apex court’s verdict. It’s because with this verdict the operation of penal provision against gay sex has come in action. Actually, this verdict is against the lesbian sex also. Both, gay and lesbian, sexual relationships have again become a punishable offence now. The Supreme Court has put the ball in to legislature’s side. Now the legislature has to do decide whether to keep the Section 377 or not. But it’s true that the gay and lesbian activists aren’t happy with the Supreme Court’s decision. They are saying that the verdict is against the law. I don’t understand their logic. How can this verdict be against the law? The Supreme Court has given the right verdict that changing any section of Indian Penal Code is the duty and responsibility of the legislative. The judiciary has the work to look whether the particular section is being implemented properly or not. If the law is violated then the judiciary will come in to action to punish the wrong doers. This is in the legal framework. So, it can’t be against the law.

Another activist of LGBT is saying that it’s not the crime if a child is born as gay or lesbian and its natural feeling. No one has the right to blame LGBT or gays. Now this is something against the law. You can’t comment against the verdict of the Supreme Court like this. No child knows that he or she will become gay or lesbian after reaching or while reaching adolescence, at its birth. This happens in due course of time and the atmosphere where the child is raised. A child doesn’t have the proper conscience to think what is right and what is wrong. This feeling is developed as the child is being taught. So, it will be unwise to say that it’s not the crime if a child is born as gay or lesbian. This thought is totally baseless and those who believe in this thought are really pathetic. I pray that they get the proper thinking very soon.

Day 342

The assembly election of Delhi has given unexpected results in phase wise. In the first phase, it showed that voters really want the most corrupt party out of the power. A debutant party nearly snatched the power from the ruling party of the last 15 years. No one ever thought that president of a new entry party in Indian politics will defeat the sitting Chief Minister for the last 15 years by a vast difference. This proves that Indian voters aren’t in mood to tolerate any party, directly and indirectly involved, in corruption.  Well, the first phase was full of unexpectation. The second phase is that the fractured mandate has forced the re election process to take place. 36 seats are needed out of 70 seats to form the government. But surprisingly neither BJP nor AAP is having the required number to claim the government formation. BJP is 4 seats behind and AAP is 8 seats behind the required number. Individuals are having 1 seat and 1 seat belongs to JDU. Now, its open secret that BJP can’t take support from either Congress or JDU. That’s something unthinkable. Both ideologically and practically, it’s impossible. Now the focus turns towards, AAP. Now it has always raised its voice against corruption. The present scenario is like neither Congress neither AAP can go to each other. Arvind Kejariwal has said that it will act like a constructive opposition. This means that he isn’t going to shake hands with Congress. But surprisingly, both can join hands to form the government. This coalition will not only keep the BJP out of power but it will save the re election process. But I don’t think that it’s going to happen. Otherwise, till now any announcement of such coalition would have come. But nothing has come. So, it’s final that the re election process is going to work now.

Day 341

The result for the assembly elections in Delhi, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh are out now. It’s not any surprise in Madhya Pradesh as the voters have paved the way for Mr Raman Singh for the third consecutive term on the basis of development.  Same thing happened in Chhattisgarh also. The voters have made two party assemblies in Chhattisgarh as BJP has won 49 and Congress has won 41 seats respectively out of 90 seats. There isn’t any scope of the third party. The major change or the centre of talk now is the result of Delhi assembly election. In its maiden election, Aam Aadmi Party has sought 28 seats in the 70 seats. Arvind Kejriwal has defeated Sheila Dikshit by 22,168 votes. This is something unthinkable. I can’t say that this is the first time that a Chief Minister has lost his or her seats in spite of being the Chief Minister for three consecutive terms. But there is a catch now. Out of 70 seats, BJP got 32 seats, Congress got 8 seats, AAP has got 28 seats and others have got 2 seats.  For simple majority, magical number of 36 is required for the formation of any government. But it’s not possible now. AAP has maintained equidistance from BJP and Congress. So, it won’t be possible to form the government there without the coalition between any two parties. Without that, it will be President’s Rule there. After six months, there will be re election for all 70 seats. Then it will be clear that that is going to form the government. Because if the AAP goes with either Congress or BJP then it will be going back from its promise that there will be no compromise or deal with any of the parties. I think that AAP has created confusion in Delhi. It has ride on the new change wave. Let’s see what happens in the future.

Day 340

Yesterday, the polling in Delhi, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh was done. The exit polls in every state are more or less saying the same thing. The BJP is going to gain power in these states. The major focus was on Delhi. Sheela Dixit is ruling there for the last fifteen years uninterrupted. I feel that now the Modi magic is going to work nation wide for the next year general election. People now want to have change. They are fed up of the Congress rule at the centre and at the places where it has ruled for more than two terms.
Personally speaking, I’m definitely fed up of Congress rule. Even in the general election held in 2009, I voted for BJP. But again the Congress led UPA came in to the power. But this time, the wave is against Congress. Now the stake is between Congress and BJP that which party will become the ruling party. The regional parties are also there but they will be going with the winning horse. Regional parties always tie up or try to tie up with the winning side. But it’s not possible to accommodate every one at one side. That has become the normal trade before the elections. It continues till the next election when the regional parties switch the side. Well, that’s not the main topic today.
The main thing is the effect of Modi miracle in the country. It can’t be denied whether you love him or hate him, you can’t escape from talking about Narendra Modi.  He is having some charisma in him that’s why people across the county are looking at him with some home. I hope and pray that this time the hope of all those who want to get rid of the Congress rule will change their hopes in clear cut mandate for BJP which will enable Narendra Modi to become the Prime Minister. Seriously speaking, the country needs at least two full terms of having non Congress rule. That’s possible only if BJP stays at the centre for two consecutive terms.
It might be feeling from my post that I’m favouring BJP and Narendra Modi only. But I’m talking about the change. The change from the pathetic Congress rule which has given nothing else than various scams. The same party cried hell about the coffin scam during Kargil war, but now its own bag is full of scams like 2G spectrum scam, coal scam, illegal land acquisition and helping Robert Vagera out of the terms and various other scams. How can they justify it now? I don’t think that the general public will justify these scams and will forgive Congress party for this.
Now the time has come to give the rein of the country in the hands of someone who can change the atmosphere. So, its time to caste the vote against the Congress party. Many of my readers won’t agree with me and I won’t be surprised if they disagree with me that Narendra Modi is the person who has the ability to change the country’s atmosphere.

Day 433

Time flies very fast. Time control everything but no one can control time. I was thinking about the time. Actually, time is the thing whic...
