It is sad that Prime Minister of the largest democracy of the world every three months has to remind about his humble origin, personal sacrifices (nation needs to hear from his wife, Yashoda Ben on this issue) and his allergy to ‘occupy chair’. It does not show his strength but weakness which amounts to EMOTIONAL BLACKMAIL of the people who are suffering due to his wrong policies and horrible execution of the same. He is trying to divert attention from the agony, pain and suffering of the common people who are being treated as if they are the hoarders of black money, financiers of terrorism and indulging in corruption. As PM he must respond to the following 3 basic questions.

  1. WHY WAS SUCH A CRITICAL DECISION EXECUTED DURING A PERIOD WHEN RABI CROP WAS READY TO BE SOWN AND MARRIAGE SESSION WAS TO COMMENCE?FORGET ABOUT MARRIAGES, HAVEN’T YOU PLAYED MISCHIEF WITH THE FOOD SECURITY OF THE INDIANS AS RABI CROP GIVES US WHEAT?
  2. WHY ARE BANKS NOT OPENING AS PER THE TIMINGS ANNOUNCED BY YOUR GOVERNMENT AND SHUTTERING DOWN AFTER EVERY 3-4 HOURS FOR WANT OF CASH? WHY ARE COMMON INDIANS WHO WANT RS 2000/4000 OF THEIR OWN MONEY FROM BANKS HAVE BEEN REDUCED TO BEGGARS?
  3. YOU TOLD THAT THIS POLICY OF DEMONETIZATION WAS IN-MAKING FOR LAST 10 MONTHS, WHY IS IT THAT MOST OF THE ATMS ARE NON-FUNCTIONAL OR REMAIN OUT OF CASH FOR MOST OF THE DAY?

  1. Sad, sad day for India. The government has money to buy the latest war toys but no money to look after its people. No different from America under Obama.

    The answer may be just one — ‘ Reagonomics’ surfacing as ‘MODI-NOMICS’ after some decades — Rob the poor and feed the rich …!
    Contrast SBI chairperson writing off loans of big defaulters including Mallya and Ravish Kumar live ( NDTV Hindi 9.00 pm Nov 16) showing waiting women for ten to twelve hours for cash from the only bank at khera near Delhi without food or water …
    That is the paradox of good governance …

    • What today we are being told are the stories from urban/city/suburban areas mainly. No one is referring to tribal areas or remote rural areas. Sorry, we neither have modern resources nor willingness to visit these places. Are not these the outcomes of the political games India has been playing since 1947 or even earlier to that say 1930 AD. Obviously the nation since the last 70 years has turned into a chronic patient of corruption, illiteracy, and poverty (even one meal is not available to tribal and down trodden people- how many of us are ready to stay in tribal areas at least two months? Just leave the metro cities like Mumbai, Kolkatta Chennai and Pune and visit tribal areas just 50 km away away. Modi has taken a heavy risk, unprecedented, showing ever seen courage to undertake surgery “Modi”fication. Help the surgeon. The Human history clearly shows that those countries whose leaders and public possess higher average moral/ethical values are advanced/winning countries,compared to those having lower ethical values. Who are responsible for such a sorry state of affairs in India? Is it not our duty to come forward and help the dying common man (who has been giving us an opportunity for our prosperity at his own costs) at this juncture? Are not we capable to do so? Please let us come out of our cells, help the common man and Govt. to overcome the present pass, hopefully temporary. We can certainly fight it out. Opposition for the sake of opposition is not a true democratic behaviour that we proudly but selectively claim to have.Opportunity knocking at the door. Welcome it!.
