Winston Churchill wrote 65 years ago about India: “Power will go to the hands of rascals, rogues, freebooters; all Indian leaders will be of low caliber & men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight amongst themselves for power & India will be lost in political squabbles. A day would come when even air and water would be taxed in India.”
Looking at the scam-a-day politics of India today and the shamelessness of the politicians, it seems Churchill was very right India.
I don’t even know who all need to be sacked and put behind bars…
After all these revelations… and now the CBI director himself stating in his affidavit to the Supreme Court, this UPA government has no moral authority to remain in office even for a day. But isn’t that expecting too much from this blatant and supercilious bunch of crook rulers?
The situation could not be more tragic and humiliating for India than it is today.
We as a nation are becoming a laughing stock in the eyes of the world even as we think we are the next super power. Well, aren’t we living in a fools paradise?
The Mughals and the Britishers looted India with all their cunningness, but our Sardarji (the PM), one of the most educated, learned scholar, with a very clean image and who has served with the highest morality, has suddenly started looking the other way ignoring what is happening right under his nose. It is hard to believe that this is happening without his knowledge.
Why is this man doing it? Why is he allowing his “impeccable integrity” label to become a farce (or it always was)? Or was it that the media and people did not know this farce for years , and this prime minister remained their darling? Now, except for some vested interests (read the ruling Congress), no one believes him. How can someone be so brazen, insensitive and dumb to his surroundings?
We all know that Sardars are known to be warriors and saviors of society. They have always been in the forefront of fighting for the nation. But it is unimaginable how Manmohan Singh is absorbing all what is happening around him. How does he face his family every morning when he always talks about reforms and the sufferings of the poor? He needs to wake up and take a stand at least save his daughters, family members from the derogatory remarks of the countrymen.
I think enough is enough. Winston Churchill was right 65 years ago. A country of 1.3 billion people is being treated like crap. If these brutes cannot be forced to resign, the whole opposition must resign from this holy parliament so that the rot of this country is accelerated and we perish sooner.
In my opinion, they will be destroying all norms of democracy if these rulers stay in office and do not go to the public for a fresh mandate immediately. If they remain in office, this bunch of crooks will destroy the nation further sooner or later…
I wonder why I go to office and work to make money and pay taxes to this corrupt government. I pray from the bottom of my heart that all these crooks suffer.
