A man-eater wrecks havoc. A hunter marks it. His social responsibility commands him to proceed immediately after the tiger and get the area rid of the danger. But he is not in possession of enough ammunition. He has a single barrel gun and a single bullet. He knows, he can unfailingly use that single bullet against the man-eater. So he proceeds. But he finds another tiger with the man-eater in the forest at the same time at the same place and acquainted as he is with the animals of the jungle, instantly recognizes which one of them is the man-eater.
Which of the tigers must he shoot at first? Obviously the man-eater. Because, he knows, the man-eater is the immediate danger to the society and to him as well. He knows, he cannot kill both the tigers at a time with a single bullet. If he kills the tiger other than the man-eater, the man-eater will kill him. If he kills the man-eater, the other tiger may not dare to attack him and in course of time, he may get the area rid of it.
So, to a hunter with a single bullet to use to get his area rid of the greatest danger, using the bullet against the man-eater should be an unavoidable must if the hunter is having his intelligence is integrated with his purpose.
Whosoever loves India and wants to get its political jungle rid of the man-eater, must act against the Congress that has not only sabotaged our national pledge for socialism, but also has been sabotaging our democracy by promoting dynastic hierarchy. Sonia’s two children are being projected as “prince” and “princess” by her factotums as well as by the media in India. What a shame!
This is the party that had given birth to Khalistani terrorism and this is the party that also had allowed Pakistani terrorism spread its tentacles in India by allowing BCCI conduct its business here in blatant disregard to warnings issued by our intelligence agency, RAW. In these pages, there are discussions on how its governments from Indira Gandhi to Rajiv Gandhi to Narasingh Rao had promoted and protected the Pakistani dirty bank of terror, BCCI.
According to Lucy Komisar, “ BCCI was the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, a dirty offshore bank that then-president Ronald Reagan’s Central Intelligence Agency(CIA) used to run guns to Saddam Hussein, finance Osama bin Laden, move money in the illegal Iran-Contra operation and carry out other “agency” black ops. President George W. Bush had tried to justify his act to extinguish Hussein by stating that he had links with Bin Laden. Komisar reported that critics had dismissed that statement as an invention. But “they were wrong. There was a link, but not the one Bush was selling. The link between Hussein and Bin Laden was their banker, BCCI.
“But the link went beyond the dictator and the jihadist — it passed through Saudi Arabia and stretched all the way to George W. Bush and his father. The Bushes also benefited privately; one of the Bank’s largest Saudi investors helped bail out George W. Bush’s troubled oil investments” (Inter Pres Service, April 5, 2007).
When against this report of Komisar we recollect the 10th Lok Sabha debate on the Motion on collapse of BCCI (discussed in the preceding posting) that showed how Sri Manmohan Singh as Finance Minister was protecting the dirty Paki bank and the outgoing Loka Sabha debates that showed how as the Prime Minister he subjected us to a nuke deal that was coined by the BCCI beneficiary George W. Bush to provide American traders with a “bonanza”, we feel it justified to diagnose the Congress as the man-eater in India’s political jungle, specifically as it wants the same Manmohan Singh to continue as the PM.
But this man-eater cannot be killed by bullet. It must be killed by ballot.
In a democracy killing of a political party means removing it from power. But in a democracy like India. a party like the Congress cannot be removed from power through mere wishful thinking. Support must be given to a party that is as strong as the Congress. Otherwise, that would be squandering way the ballots and an indirect support to the Congress. In view of this, support to BJP should be the priority preference.
If BJP is supported, Congress could be removed. Patriotism requires Congress to be removed.
Communists have a historical responsibility in making it feasible.
They should come out of the misconceived cocoon of secularism.
All political parties including the communists are communal.
Whosoever does not accept Indian Constitution as his / her only religion and does not work for elimination of all other platforms of theism that are known as religions and prescribes or promulgates codes of conduct parallel to or in contrast with the spirit of Indian constitution, whatever be their names, are communal in their respective environment.
Whosoever displays any religious symbol as his own in the public that comprises members or followers of other religions does so only in order to exhibit the greatness of his or her religious practice; hence is communal.
Whosoever worships any god or recites any religious code in public when the entire public does not belong to his / her own path, is communal.
Political parties of India including the Communists cannot show that they are parties of peoples who are not communal.
So, opposing the BJP under the assumption that it is the only communal party is a misconception from which the Communists should extricate themselves.
By opposing the BJP as communal and by supporting the Congress as secular, the Communists have neither strengthened Communism in India nor have served the common man’s interest in India.
Manmohan Singh’s regime has forced more people to perish under poverty. The National Commission for Enterprises in the Unorganized Sector, appointed by the central government in 2004 to assess the real condition of the unorganized workforce and recommend a better deal, has handed over the final report to the PM. According to it’s finding, 836 million people, comprising 75 percent of India, live on less than Rs. 20 a day!
On the other hand, sample audits conducted by the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) has umpteen times unveiled misappropriation of welfare project funds under Singh’s tenure. The CAG even has said, a sum of Rs.5000 crores from the exchequer has simply vanished! And the looters have enjoyed so much immunity in Manmohan Singh’s regime that not a single instance of any of them having been punished for the loot has come to our knowledge.
Singh’s regime has encouraged plutocracy take over India. This is clear from 1285 men of many crores contesting as candidates against 548 Lok Sabha constituencies this election. The Congress has planted candidates from this category in majority of Lok Sabha constituencies where it is in fray. According to scrutiny of property list submitted by contesting candidates, this is the party that tops the list of crorepati candidates fielded by all the parties. The property list of candidate in election for 15th Lok Sabha clearly shows that money grabbers and black money hoarders in more numbers and in organized manners are eager to hijack our democracy and are in actual advantage. Power has gone to their hand ever since Manmohan Singh as Finance Minister dragged us into GATT and day-by-day they are grabbing power more organizedly. 1285 multimillionaires/ billionaires in fray in 543 Lok Sabha constituencies to represent our peoples of whom about 75 per cent numbering 836 millions perish in slow starvation being bound to live on Rs.20 per day as per report of the latest official commission, is perhaps the worst quagmire our democracy has fallen into. Manmohan Singh’s economic policy has dragged our motherland to this sorry state. And this has been possible because of Communists’ support to Singh despite knowing his role as Finance Minister.
Congress must be isolated to save our country from agents of imperialism. Besides, the dynastic hierarchy that the Congress has promoted must be defeated to save our democracy. The treachery Congress has played against our country in the nuke deal must be avenged. Those who prefer personal political interest to India’s are bragging about forming non-Congress-non-BJP fronts under attire of secularism. Any such front will not serve India. If India is to be saved, it is to be saved from Manmohan Singh, it is to be saved from the collaborators of Manmohan Singh it is t be saved from agents of American imperialism, from the facilitators of plutocracy, from the hijackers of our democracy, from the factors of dynastic hierarchy. Support to any other party than the BJP by the smaller parties would be disastrous to our democracy at the moment.
Majority of Indians has even in the present elections rejected the Congress and the party knows it. So it is trying to net in smaller parties to reorganize a coalition. Its further occupation of power in India will lead to total collapse of Indian democracy. In the guise of secularism this collapse must not be encouraged. The communists ought to understand this. They ought to understand that their role in supporting the Congress has already affected their credibility. It would never be a surprise if they decline in strength in the Lok Sabha after results are declared. It they support Congress again they may never gain back peoples’ faith. Then the scenario would be total disastrous for whatever semblance of democracy we still believe to be having.
In the circumstances, for the Communists – because they are the last hope for our peoples perishing in slow starvation under plutocracy whose wretchedness, as admitted by the latest official commission referred to supra, is compelling their families to live on Rs. 20 per day – priority program should be removal of Congress from power.
And, in order to do it, BJP should be used; because at the moment it is the ablest weapon that one can use against Congress, the man-eater in the political jungle of India.
