Now its time for all the Biharis, Jharkhandis and UPites (bhayyas) to flee Gujarat b’coz Raj Thackeray is the new friend of Narendra Modi. Raj Thackeray joined Modi in his Sadbhavana rally and openly supported Modi’s Prime Ministerial candidate. Not only Raj Tackeray but also Punjab Chief Minister Prakash Singh Badal, whose police force committed atrocities on Bihari/Jharkhandi/Odishi/UP migrant labourers in Ludhiana was seen sharing podium with Modi.
Not only these regionalistic issues are going to crop up, but also wide scale misuse of law and law enforcement agencies are going to scale up, as was done during the tenure of Indira Gandhi. With supporters like Raj Thackeray and Prakash Singh Badal, Narendra Modi will for sure support or keep mute at their anti-migrants politics. The migrants who were in somewhat better condition in Gujarat till now, will have to now join the similar fate met by their friends in Punjab and Mumbai.
Another major controversy cropping up these days is the arrest of Gujarat cadre IPS officer Sanjay Bhatt. Bhatt who calls himself to be whistle blower and only ‘messiah police officer’ of muslims in Gujarat was arrested on the serious charges of abduction and coercing another police constable into giving false affidavit. The case being sub judice, I leave it to judiciary to unveil the truth behind the story, but surely the arrest of a senior Police officer will not only downgrade the morals of other police officers throughout the country but also anger and prejudice them against Narendra Modi. IPS officers in Gujarat are already changing their cadres or opting for deputation to central government’s departments.
It has been long tested and successful theory of Congress government to put all the blame on the police officers and other bureaucrats and walk away clean handed. The mother who gave birth to this tactics is no other than Indira Gandhi. During Emergencies, widespread loot and crime was made by Indira Gandhi through police officers. Booth capturing at the local elections, assassinations of political opponents, threat and coercive measures were all done by police officers on the orders of Indira Gandhi. But soon after the emergency times were over and a peace loving non Congress Government came to power at the centre, Indira Gandhi sidelined herself by saying that all the crimes were committed by the police officers on their own and she has no relationship with them. The police officers were arrested in dozens and quintals.
Even in recent times, we see the same trend of Congress govt. in throwing up all the blame on police and simply walking away. Be it the case of baton charge on Ramdev’s rally or arrest of Anna Hazare, the Home MInistry has only one thing to say – ‘Go and ask Police Commissioner, we don’t know anything’. Recently Pranab Da sidelined himself from 2G controversy by saying that the letter sent by his office was not his but drafted and sent by his ministry’s bureaucrats.
At least this was not the case with BJP govt till now. But now everything seems to be carbon copies. All politicians are of similar origin. Police being used again. Courts being made temples of God Modi, whistle blowers being put behind bars and Human Rights activists being sidelined. Every game has rules – including politics. The rule, although loosely, is followed by almost all the civilized nations, except India. Here politicians only indulge in making press statements and that too about works the other party did during their regime. BJP blames congress for being corrupt, Congress hits back by saying, ‘what you did during your tenure to fight corruption’. No one is interested in present or future, only blame game and mudslinging is the rule. What will common man do? There are fasts being carried out for 72 hrs in the name of sadbhavana, but what about the 70% of the Indian population who is 365 days a year on fast (Tendulkar committee report says 70% of India’s population survives on less that 20 rupees per day, less than half a dollar).
Well when Narendra Modi is only the Chief Minister, he is creating tremors, what will happen if he becomes the Prime Minister – The Indira Gandhi Part II. However for now I would like to warn the Biharis and other similars to start finding some other alternatives – Gujarat is not going to be the same again. Oh but what if Modi becomes the PM, Prakash Singh Badal becomes the Deputy PM and Raj Thackeray becomes the Home Minister, where will all the Biharis, UPites and Jharkhandis go.
However to counter Prakash Singh Badal we have our true friends – The Kangaroos. No surprise why there is increase in violence against Punjabi (i stress Punjabi, not Indian) students in Australia. Australian Police chief has advised Punjabi students to not to wear expensive clothes in the market, not to use iPods in public, to dress poorly so that Australian students may show some pity on them. Rightly said – What goes around, comes around. “We Love We Love AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE…..”
