Hindu Statement

Its not a Religious Statement, Its a Cultural Statement!!!

Election Postmortem.

The Election festival is over and the results announced.  I might not be very happy about the outcome :-), but Congratulations to the congress for such a spectacular win.

There are a few quite notable things in this election which stood out.

The mood of the people for a national party is probably the best thing that happened in this election. Almost all the smaller, opportunistic parties which were mostly running as family business, have been shown their place. Yes  not all have been drubbed yet and I hope that they will be shown the door in the next election and we will get to see less of these parties at the Lok Sabha level.  I guess the most ideal situation would be to have these regional parties win the assembly elections  and the national parties win the Lok Sabha.

Thank god that we have been saved the nuisance of these small parties thumping their chest and asking for the larger piece of the pie. Thank god we wont have to see parites with just a couple of MP’s threaten to bring down a government because their cup of tea did not have the righ amount of sugar (well they are capable of it). Noe they can all go back to their respective states and lick ther wounds and may be get on with their work, like builng their own statues.

15 minutes to defeat terrorism – by Rahul Gandhi

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday had a surprise suggestion of empowering villagers to fight terrorism.

“I am confident that this country can take on terrorism. Defeating it is no problem. If we empower those people in villages, we can sit back, relax and we will destroy terrorism in 15 minutes,” Gandhi told a press conference here.

Err…Umm.. Beware Taliban, here come our villagers!! Swoosh …15 minutes later the taliban were defeated and sent to hell and the Villagers went back to their daily chores. No need for the army or the police, no anti-terrorist squad, no nothing. Just our plain old villagers will do the trick. Where was Rahul when these terrorists were raising their ugly head? If he had suggested this earlier we would not have had to live our lives scared until now. Such maturity and wisdom at such a young age, it must have been there in his genes.

Or was he mentioning the Naxalites? I guess he was, and if he was , am not surprised that he equated terrorism with maoists and not the radical Islamists. Not bad dude , you seem to be learning the tricks of vote bank politics  very well.

I have asked before and still ask, do you “secularists” and the “intellectuals” STILL believe that this man is the one who will take India forward.? Is having the blood of the Nehru family the best and the only criteria to lead India? I do believe that priyanka is a natural politician and can give many an opponents a run for their money(but she needs the experience in public domain before she can become a politician) , but this guy ?? I mean, its ok to campaign for his mom, an may be its ok to be a politician in the congress party( they cant go any lower even with him included), but a PM.. Some one who will lead India forward??

Come on people, wake up.

Rahul is a PM material!!!??? Really?

But seriously, on what qualifications should he be made the PM? Apart from the fact that he belongs to the Nehru clan what other qualifications does he have? Is congress so much out of senior leaders that they would want rahul as a PM? Other than popping up in the  media when the elections are nearing what has he done to the country?? Really the congress should change its name to something thats more relevant to their thoughts… Like “nehru party”

Union Minister Pranab Mukherjee said Rahul Gandhi would be able to give leadership if he became the Prime Minister as the younger generation could do so. “When Indira Gandhi became the Prime Minister she was not 50. Even Rajiv Gandhi took over as the PM before he turned 40. If Rahul Gandhi becomes the Prime Minister, he will certainly give able leadership to the country and there is no doubt in it,” Mukherjee said during an interview with a Bengali news channel.

I guess Pranab Mukherjee could wait for a couple of years and then make either priyankas or rahuls child as the prime minister that way they would be more younger than Indira or Rajiv gandhi

Campaigning for her family, Priyanka was also asked about her brother Rahul Gandhi often referred to as the Prime Minister in waiting, and she gave Rahul a big thumbs for the top job.

“The next PM is hopefully going to be Manmohan Singh. But I have full faith in my brother. He’s hard working and means well. And he’s according to me qualified. I’m sure one day he will, and will do a good job,” said Priyanka.

Hell yes he is qualified, he was born in the nehru clan after all. What more qualification do you need to become the PM of this country.
