Open Letter to Rahul Gandhi

Open Letter to Rahul Gandhi

You must be getting a lot of feed back of your strutting across India, of your utterances and non utterances and I hope these are uncensored by your sycophants and coterie that surround you and your mother. If uncensored then you will get a correct assessment of what Indians think of you and your ambition to become the Prime Minister. After all we are a rich poor country –a rural urban one and though you like to fool the people by saying that you belong to the poor India, they are not zombies to take that at face value. You may peep into a dalit house-you may share a couple of rotis with a dalit man-you may hop on to a motor bike and be given a ride by a criminal but you and all these gimmicks cannot change to a fairly large extend the impression one gets from your inability to connect to the nation. You are trying no doubt, and in the process making yourself a laughing stock. Unlike your grandmother and great grand father you cannot connect to India and her people- except that you come from the Nehru Gandhi family and that is not enough for the nation to accept you as a PM. But what is shocking is the fact that you can even think of such a possibility because it is a disaster

With this preamble let me context it to the ‘Globalization excludes as much as it includes’ (21st Indian Express)would not blame you for the ideas therein because on your own you are incapable of even essaying that. You and your mother are both apt draft readers. But since for record sake you are given as the author let me clarify on it.
You are talking of processes-urbanization, globalization and you missed Industrialization though that’s the main gel that is significant in the example you gave namely: of the cart and the car. You must realize that thanks to the British India was kept out of industrialization process and prodded to jump into urbanization. This suited the British’s policy. Had we gone into the sequential stage wise growth then industrialization of the country would not have spread pauperization of the rural. And there would not have been this wide spread of slums. The rural areas were overlooked even in basics and the small towns that the ‘sahibs ‘resided saw a proliferation of slums-the unskilled labor. The poverty stricken rural folks who had to migrate to the towns to become cheap labor-head load workers for cotton and jute bales. It is this jump from rural to urban missing the industrialization that enabled you to give the example of a cart and car. We have the latest cars on your road speeding fast and we have the bullock carts jogging along. Why this scenario

Worse still was the policy of an English education system because the ‘sahibs’ had to understand the local employees. While the other countries were industrialized with our raw materials we remained where we were-rural vastly. But time ticked and the nation was sucked into the vortex of urbanization. The government mostly of your Party quickened the process by putting in facilities in urban centers.
Globalization is facilitated by communication technology. To repeat your examples-Why is it that the rubber from our country is not processed in India and had to go to Germany? Why the metal mined in Bellary need to go to Japan to be processed and shipped by Korea. So you see how our political culture was such that they kept the country under developed as far as technology was concerned but entered into pacts with the foreign countries of course with kickback to process our raw materials.

You still think that you belong to ‘poor India’ but you and your mother jet across. Our hospitals are not good enough for the family,our transport system not powered enough so jets from the Arab world and from the filthy rich of the ‘globalized is alone good for you. You think Indians are at your disposal. You fail to realize that the policy followed by the Congress-the party of yours and you are one of its General Secretaries is the root cause of this great divide-of having carts and latest model cars on the road side by side. Co-existence I suppose.
So in this process it is natural that the voiceless, asset less and powerless are left behind. But then it gives you ample space for sermonizing to them of the ‘green pastures’ that await the poor and the humble. And typical of you that’s how you have signed off ‘Globalization excludes as much as it includes’ by bringing in compassion. Of course you have mentioned a sentence on justice and rights but that should have been the main central theme. This patronizing attitude is killing and reveals a mindset that is not upholding justice and rights. The people of this country have been in the process of globalization denied justice and rights. It is not the Food security of the National Advisory Council that we need. It is not the compassion that we are lacking. Indian hoary past is seeped in compassion and patience and that’s one of the reasons why people like you can utter nonsense and fool the people. We want our rights-we want justice and towards this be it the cart and the car examples we will not any more tolerate the sermon being thrust down on us. What is good for those who are excluded should be good for you and your mother/So do not run away and holiday and celebrate b’days in UK but eat two rotis in a dalit house and sermonize of the ‘excluded’ in the process of globalization to prove that you belong to the ‘poor India’. This is adding insult to injury. Have you and your party any idea of the concept of Justice? If so then why in the same news paper we had the article on ‘Government goes extra kilometer for Congress in UP’ Rural basic facility of road the majority needs to be in Congress constituencies.

How different are you from the invaders and the British who squeezed the rural poor. Your constituency of Amethi has been sanctioned 25 projects in contrast to just one project sanctioned for Pilibit represented by Varun Gandhi-a 75 lakh Rs for 1.8 km of rural road. Are the poor and the powerless in Pilibit different from those in Amethi? Did you peep into a dalit house in Pilibit? This basic discrimination right from our planned development period cannot see Justice as part of globalization and Industrialization. The cart will always be there along with the speeding latest cars because we have people like you-nay we have a Congress party seeped in vested interest and greed. A party which abets scams one per day at least. And you talk of ‘compassion’ Can you have compassion without Justice and can you empower people without pauperizing them? Yes change challenges –only if Justice is at the core of your perception. Rights of others are as important as your own-There is no two opinion of that but your party and you believe only in words-hollow they sound and now these infuriated the people because they see it as a foolery game.(Tell Digvijaya Singh to be silent for some time he is causing more harm than good for the party).For this to be realistic you must be able to realize what it is to be asset less and powerless. Do not sit in an ivory tower and talk of compassion like the priest who sermonizes to the hungry congregation Sunday after Sunday and reminds them that the hungry will have their fill in the next world while he then goes back and consumes a sumptuous breakfast.

Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill

Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill-2011 as proposed by the NAC

I belong to a minority community and the reading of the so called Prevention of communal and targeted violence bill was shocking to say the least. I have touched only on one aspect-namely the ‘Group’ and ‘the others’ The proposed Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill 2011 seems to be drafted by Nazi mentality persons who are hell bend on communalizing the nation and ultimately destroying this country. It is just not senseless but drafted with malice intention and purport. The very terminology is misleading because this is no Prevention of communalism but arousing and abetting communalism. Again why the term ‘Targeted Violence’? It should have been simply violence. It starts thus with assumptions and presumptions that violence is targeted which means violence is directed against specific targets (read here Muslims) this assumes that the perpetrators are non Muslims. It is flawed right from the caption and the minds that sat down to scribble-not draft this Bill had preconceived notions and a hidden agenda which found its expression in the so called bill.

First I would like to question the authority of the NAC to draft such a bill. Why an extra constitutional body should be engaged in this task. Do we not have ministers-the cabinet and government advisors to the Prime Minister-Group of empowered ministers to take up the task. All these are paid by the common people’s tax money and apart from these a super body with handpicked anti-Modi, anti Hindu persons to form the NAC with an Italian heading it to abet the disintegration of this nation. This cannot go and it will be relevant if Baba Ramdev and Anna team joins together to throw this bill into the dustbin of history. This is their obligatory duty because corruption is one but the survival of the country as a nation comes first. This so called bill cannot go even if redrafted because from A to Z it is flawed. It is seditious and treason.

A blatant and arbitrary division of the Indian people into ‘group’ and ‘others’ is made by the drafters of the Bill, which reveals the mal-intent. It goes beyond mere appeasement of the Muslims but aims at disintegration of the country. The drafters have given the Muslims and the religious Minorities a free run of violence including rape which is a crime but they have the license to commit these and go scot free. The same criminality and violence committed by a Hindu calls for stringent punishment but if committed by the Muslims escape the law (this is worse than the jungle law).This because the Muslims and the Minorities are the ‘group’ and the Hindus are ‘the others’ ungrouped. The people thus are grouped into two-the victims-which is ‘the group’ and the perpetrators which are ‘the others.’ No country in the world except the Nazis had this mind set when it came to the Jews. No civilized country would accept such blatant miscarriage of law and justice. The Congress had right from the beginning been sowing divisive politics in the country- on the basis of region, religion, caste and language. Now it is emboldened to reveal its devilry. Just two camps of people in the country-the victims and the perpetrators. So even before the violence the NAC has envisaged violence and that is directed against the Muslims and Minorities. Indian history does not vouch to this assumption. The drafters of the Bill presume that riots and violence are perpetrated by ‘the others’ (read Hindus)This is not true and not the reality. ‘According to Ms Zenab Banu’s ‘Politics of communalism: a politico-historical analysis of communal riots in post independence India with special reference to the Gujarat and Rajasthan riots” (1989), there have been 74 communal riots between 1953 and 1977 of which 75 percent were instigated by Muslims’ Even today 98 percent of terrorism cross borderand /or Indian born is planned, instigated and perpetrated by Muslims.Only Islam has the Jihad and hence Jehadis. Yet PC could coolly make a reference to ‘saffron’ terror. This clearly indicates the mindset of the Congress.

The Communal Violence Bill is based on hate philosophy but even in this it is skewed. There have been riots in which Hindus were victims and Indian history stands testimony to the atrocities against Hindus, by the Muslim invaders-the destruction of temples and the desecration of Hindu gods and goddesses. In recent time the fate of the Kashmiri pundits will vouch for this. The Hindus have been massacred, their homes have been burned and they have been driven out of the Valley. Till date no justice has been done. Is this because they belong to the ‘others’?

Violence is violence and criminality is criminality it cannot change because of the victim and the perpetrator. These must to be snuffed out and the same penal code must address these crimes. The same laws must be applicable to the citizens of India. This is their Right. The proposed Bill violates the Constitution with immunity not only on Federalism but on Fundamental Rights. How can a Parliament even look at it and waste its time. I shudder to think that the NAC have people sitting in it with such a mindset. And are to pay for them by out tax money? To make this feasible the NAC is proposing to bring out two penal codes-one for the Hindus and the other for the religious minorities. It would be better then to say that the religious minorities do not come under any penal code-they can run amuck commit crimes and indulge in violence .They will not be apprehended. If a nation divides its people on the basis of two sets of penal code; next it will seek two flags for the country-one for the group and the other for the Hindus. So a nation quietly and ingeniously divided into two. Do we need geographical partition? And in this divide which flag will the NAC hold? What about the national anthem? Which flag will be unfurled on the Independence Day? It is simply beyond my comprehension that the NAC could draft such an atrocious bill aimed at dividing the nation and get away with it. They must be charged for treason.

Let us hypothetically envisage that this Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill is passed and becomes a Bill. Then posthumously Rajiv Gandhi must be tried and sentenced. The Congress leaders-Jagdish Tytler ,Sajjan Kumar must be put on trial-the Congress government which was in power at the Centre with all those officers then in service must be tried and punished because they failed to prevent the butchering of the Sikhs, the arson and the rapes The Congress party must be banned. The history of this country does not start with the NAC and end with NAC. One should have a sense of history and thus the same Bill drafted by the NAC will be first directed against the Congress party headed by Mrs Sonia Gandhi. It will end the NAC and will throw the Congress party out of the relevance of Indian history. What you sow you reap.

Friend, father & philosopher of black money is Chidambaram
By Ram Jethmalani, The Sunday Guardian,
August 3, 2011

Palaniappan Chidambaram, whom I shall for the sake of brevity call just Chidambaram, is best seen through black and white. And please don’t get me wrong and accuse me of racism. I refer not to epidermis or mane, but to the economic colour of money. Some of his greatest contributions to the economy of India are his brilliant pioneering initiatives for changing the colour of money from black to white. And this passion has never left him.

Many of us have forgotten the Voluntary Disclosure of Income Scheme (VDIS) 1997, which he announced when he was Finance Minister with the United Front government, granting income-tax defaulters indefinite immunity from prosecution under the Foreign Exchange Regulation Act, 1973, Income Tax Act, 1961, Wealth Tax Act, 1957, and Companies Act, 1956, in exchange of self-valuation and disclosure of income and assets.

The scheme was brilliantly conceived. While all schemes in the past valued declared assets at current prices, VDIS 1997 brought in an arbitrary date of 1 April 1987. Gold and silver hoarders, and large property holders got an exceptional bonanza on this valuation system. Further, proof of purchase was not insisted upon, which gave complete freedom to the confessors to fudge any date they wanted to their own financial advantage and further plunder of the country.

So, even if gold was bought after 1987, it could be shown as having been bought before 1987, and it was a win-win game for all stakeholders to rake in the cuts. The Comptroller and Auditor General of India condemned the scheme in his report as abusive and a fraud on the genuine taxpayers of the country. But the issue was forgotten, and the illustrious career of Palaniappan Chidambaram rose to greater heights in the UPA regime.

Those were his innocent days. What a long way he has come since the era when he was cooking up VDISs, so utterly transparent, that the loopholes and avenues to give relief to the looters stared you in the face. The world economy was also then a little simpler than it is today, and his best achievement was getting caught about his investments in Fairgrowth, which was involved in the Securities Scam of 1992.

Chidambaram had to resign for this utterly transparent investment in a company whose scam would have paid rich dividends. Unfortunately, he was not Finance Minister at the time and did not have the machinery to hush things up, and could only remotely control the markets, unlike his present capabilities as former Finance Minister and thereafter.
Being Finance Minister in the UPA government was his finest hour. He could fiddle around with share markets, capital markets, banks, financial instruments, such as, securities, participatory notes, tax treaties, not to speak of spectrum sale, and use his extraordinary innovative powers of black money magic to plunder our country with complete impunity.
He assiduously cultivated the media with his clipped English accent (that led him down, now and then), occasional freebies, and sustained shadows of the Enforcement Directorate that he commanded.

Chidambaram cannot get black money out of his blood. Dr Subramanian Swamy has clearly stated in his website, “I now have further information from my usually reliable sources in the Union Government that the tapping of Finance Minister Mr. Pranab Mukherjee and his close associate in the Ministry, enabled Mr. Robert Vadra the son-in-law of Ms. Sonia Gandhi and Mr. Karthik, son of Mr. P. Chidambaram, to use the data thereby collected to manipulate and rig the Mumbai stock market. Earlier these data were directly provided by the then Finance Minister Mr. Chidambaram. I demand that the SEBI be asked by PM to initiate ‘Insider Trading’ investigation and prosecution of Mr. Vadra and Mr. Karthik.”

If what is put out by Dr Subramanian Swamy is false why doesn’t Chidambaram sue him?

The dark clouds of the 2G scam and the repeated evidence being given by A. Raja and other accused of his tacit involvement and other acts of omission and commission are menacingly closing in on Chidambaram. He is losing his cool, and more importantly, losing his carefully clipped English accent to its more indigenous roots more often.

And like his colleague Digvijay Singh, his mind seems to be disintegrating to a stage where he has started talking gibberish. Take this, for example: in reply to the BJP demand for his resignation for his involvement in the 2G scam, Chidambaram claims that the BJP is targeting him since he initiated a probe by the NIA into Hindu terror. Can any rational person see the connection between the two?

Take also his comments regarding the recent Mumbai blasts. As Home Minister, instead of taking stock of the situation, and providing leadership, the only intelligent thing he could think of saying was, “No intelligence is not intelligence failure.” Even a college debating society expects better logic. It’s something like saying “illness is not a failure of health” or “impotence is not a failure of potency”.

Chidambaram’s special financial skills have diversified into electoral politics also. He has the distinction of having been declared defeated in the last Lok Sabha election, after which he galvanized his special skills and local machinery, in particular, a data entry operator, and doctored a marginal victory on the recount. That is quite a record for fraud. And can one forget how the Indian Bank was cleaned up and left with only non-performing assets thanks to him and his Tamil Maanila buddies?

Chidambaram’s record as Home Minister has been disastrous. Neither has he made any impact on internal security, with the worst massacres of his own paramilitary forces taking place in his time, nor on terrorism, which carries on in complete complacency because there are neither effective preventive or punitive systems in place, nor political will and national legislation to combat terrorism. It is on record and in the public domain that the Home Ministry gave incorrect names of India’s most wanted list of terrorists allegedly hiding in Pakistan, some of whom were tracked living in India or in custody. Is this a testament to his fabled efficiency and commitment?

What a laughing stock we must be before the world. It is almost as if India is determined that it shall not combat terrorism, shall not have enabling legislation as enacted by the US, such as the Homeland Security Act 2002, and the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005 of UK and similar legislations in European governments. India is determined not to have an effective national agency on the lines of the Homeland Security Department of the US.

The ramshackle National Investigation Agency showed itself as a complete failure during the recent Mumbai attacks. Understandable, because its only mandate appears to be to investigate “Hindu terror”, the last refuge for failed and hopeless Congressmen like Chidambaram. The CCTNS, JIC, ARC, NTRO (presently in another scam), and NCTC remain effete, scattered and unmonitorable, even by the Home Ministry. With such an unequivocal determination by the UPA government not to address terrorism effectively, I can only grieve for my country.
