I saw Jayalalitha showing the victory sign at the media after winning the election and my first reaction was she must be thinking how much to mint this time.
Its true isn’t it, that’s what politics-Indian politics has become now. make false promises, buy votes, win and mint. I am not saying that governments in other countries are true and fair not even in monarchies in the Gulf but at least they do something for the citizens.
The present Indian government has three brilliant intellectuals-Dr.Manmohan Singh, P.Chidambaram and Pranab Mukkherjee but all three have been failures in the present administration. Give basic amenities to people- the roti, kapda,makan and then talk about making our cities to Shanghai. But no what purpose will be served by this, it will be better to open malls, build flyovers, hold games, so that atleast their future generations do not have to bother about their roti kapda and makan.
Mamta didi promised a record number of trains to Her Bongal and she won. But its good at least there was a change in West Bengal.
AND Jaganmohan Reddy won in the elections. How? He paid Rs 1000 per person to buy votes. For You and me Rs 1000 may not mean much but for these poor people !000 is richness. For Reddy spending a few lakhs will not make a dent in his massive fortune and anyways it will be replenished very soon. In rural Andhra Pradesh booze and films rule the roost and the wealthy keep the poor intoxicated on both counts. So much so that they cannot think what is good for them.
BJP won again in Mangalore. Just a single question to them- Dearies do you know there are no trees left in the city? Do you know the mild and pleasant Mangalore is now hot and humid??
Petrol prices have risen again and I would really like to know the actual reason because crude oil prices are falling and expected to fall more.
And though I know that A.Raja or Kalmadi will never really get punished (the cases will keep on running) but I have a desire to see all the politicians (well most of them) run their homes in a ‘budget.’ Yes, that will surely be a torture for them. Try to run a house in a budget say Rs 15000 and then you will come to know how the aam aadmi survives.
