What, Congress is out of money?

Don’t be misled by this Bloomberg article that says that Congress is running out of money.
 
My reasons for not agreeing with the article’s contention are:
1. The funding for all kinds of dubious agitations -like Jat, Gujjar, Patels, Marathas, Koregaon Bhima , etc. seems to be in tact.
2. The pay checks for journalists and intellectuals continue as before going by media support that Congress gets. Congress with just 44 MPs and a couple of state government doesn’t deserve the kind of media space it gets.
 
3. Media still projects and allocates space to  Sonia and Rahul Ghandi , the prime accused in National Herald Case , as equal to Narendra Modi.
 
4. Entire Congress ecosystem of media, hired intellectuals, writers, actors, even some Institutional Heads is working like a well oiled machinery -denigrating Hindus and supporting Break India Forces.
 
All above can’t happen without money and a system of favors and disfavors. The money in cash or kind may be coming from Vatican Church, Islamic Jihadi or terror support organizations and Communist regimes. Repeated statements by Christian Archbishops and Muslim Clergy for defeating BJP or NDA lend credence to the sources of Congress funding mentioned above.
It is possible that some party functionaries don’t get funds. But Congress’ new business model doesn’t now depend on a traditional party apparatus. Its political  jobs are done by a small coterie around the Ghandis and other jobs are left to its ecosystem which gets funded through its system of favors and disfavors. And for election booths it has its basti-wise goons. That is the reason Congress loves paper stuffing ballot boxes and hates EVMs.
The Congress is not even the main opposition party – the Bloomberg article claims it to be. Congress is in opposition just like other regional parties like SP, BSP, TMC, TDP, Shiva Sena, JDS, JDU, RJD.  This is underscored by the fact that it had to scramble to prop up a JDS headed Government in Karnataka.
The article quotes Congress and BJP figures selectively without giving details of what happened during  scam accused Sonia rule and before that.
Bloomberg’s sympathies  for a ‘Modi toppling’ Congress are apparent. The article appears  to more for canvassing funds from anti- India sections of the West and for lulling Modi supporters in complacence. Don’t get taken in by it.

Why Congress wants to impeach the CJI?

For several weeks now the Congress has been talking about impeachment of the Hon. Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra. Today it has filed the motion.  Why is it hell bent on pushing the motion when it knows that it will be defeated by a huge margin?

Consider these recent developments.

  1. Congress is facing prospects that SC judgement in Ram Janmbhoomi case by the bench headed by the CJI may will go in favor of Hindus.  SC had earlier refused to stay the hearing until the completion 2019 elections which the  Congress wanted.
  2. SC has thrown out ‘Public Interest Litigation’ in Judge Loya death case. It has castigated the petitioners supported by Congress the petition as ‘scandalizing judiciary’, ‘trying to use courts for political purpose’, and ‘frivolous’. The SC judgement has also dealt a body blow to Congress ‘theory’ of ‘Saffron Terror’
  3.  Trail court in ‘Mecca Masjid blast’ case threw out charges against Aseemanand and said that evidence was fabricated. This also nailed the Congress lie about ‘Saffron Terror’
  4. The Malegaon blasts case in which Col. Purohit and sadhvi Pragya were framed has seen that bail has been granted to both.  A frame up was done to scuttle Col. Purohit going on busting Islamic terror modules and to peddle the ‘Saffron Terror’ theory.  purohitframeupThe prosecution has failed get charges approved the trial court, years after their arrests. This case is on the verge of collapsing.

From days of Indira Gandhi , who was convicted for corrupt electoral practices, who changed the law to undo the court judgement and who wanted ‘Committed Judiciary’,  Congress has been trying to manipulate the judicial processes to suit its agenda.

Where the Congress could not buy out the judiciary, it has tried to threaten it. When the press conference by four judges of SC failed to pressurize the CJI, Congress was staring at prospects of its big lies being exposed by courts.

Congress knows, that despite some obvious and long standing short comings, people have faith in Indian Judiciary.  It must have calculated the heavy political costs of being exposed by the courts.

Congress is already looking at political oblivion.  It can not anymore ‘count on’ judiciary. It has only main stream media and intellectuals on payrolls on its side. It knows that their help won’t be enough.

Congress is desperate. Its agenda is to break India. Weakening judiciary can surely weaken India make it easier to break. It thinks that it can hoodwink the CJI. That’s why the impeachment motion.

Congress is making a fatal mistake.  A public discussion on the impeachment motion will expose Congress even further.

 

Buried: Congress’ Saffron Terror Theory

Aseemanand has been acquitted in Mecca Masjid blast case and the Saffron Terror Theory of Congress has gets a burial

Congress leaders Diggy and Chidu floated this theory. Diggy blamed RSS for 26/11 Terror attack by Pakiatan. Chidu painted terrorist Ishrat Jahan as an innocent victim.

All Congress lies continue to get exposed. Yet it continues its Gobblesque propaganda amplified by our compromised media and supported by some sold out and some stupid Hindus.

Shaming India by Outrage Industry

The Outrage Industry has a business model of using  incidents or crime, real or fake, to spin lies to shame Hindus and break Hindustan that is Bharat that is India . Every real or fake crime against Muslims or Christians is used to shame India, while rapes and murders of Hindus and pedophilia by Christian priests and rapes by Muslim clergy get passing mention in main stream media.

The unfortunate and a wholly condemnable crime against a child, Asifa, in Kathua is another case which the Outrage Industry funded by Congress and religious bodies outside India have used to drag Hindus and their temple in it. Reports say that the villagers of Kathua are angry that there temple has been falsely mentioned in the ‘story’ spun by the above Industry.

Latest report says that the accused have pleaded not guilty and have demanded a narco test. Normally it is prosecution that asks for narco test to be done on the accused. So this unusual development is noteworthy.

By the time the truth comes out, the Outrage Industry will have spun another web of lies.

The real issues are:

  1. Police and Judiciary fail just too often to do their basic jobs. This has nothing to do with the nature of crime -rape, murder, or terror.
  2. The selective outrage as mentioned above.
  3. How Hindus and those who consider this land and its heritage of millennia (It is essentially a Hindu or Vedic or Sanatana Dharmic heritage at the core with the migrants and those sought  asylum from persecution in their lands getting integrated here without having to let go of their methods of worship ) respond to the threats.

To the Outraging Fringe on Alwar Killing

To the outraging of fringe over alleged killing by a ‘gaurakshaks’ in Alwar I say:

1) Since police have arrested the ‘alleged suspects’ and investigating the episode wait for the police to complete their work and file charge sheet. You will know the truth – it may be nothing do with cows, personal rivalry or any such things. Even if it is, the accused will get punished.

2) If you argue that ‘oh police and courts take too long and don’t do a good job’, please protest and demand thorough reform of judiciary and legal profession and policing (surveillance, prevention, detection, and prosecution ). Almost every major crime -be it murder, rape, or rioting ) happens because of poor policing and a glacial and gamed judiciary. It takes decades to convict ( if at all) and then convicts like Lalu roam free. If you are not demanding this you are a hypocrite.

3) If you are unwilling to do 1 or 2 above, accept the above crime as an expression of anger of some elements of Hindus due to being at the receiving end of your communal politics which has caused restrictions on Hindu traditions, exodus of Kashmiri Pandits, killing of RSS and BJP workers, Islamization of parts of Bengal, Kerala, and UP, glorification of Muslim terrorists and stone pelters who help terrorists. All this has been coming on top of centuries of genocide of Hindus by Muslim rulers, destruction of thousands of temples, and forcible conversions and rapes of Hindu women by Muslim rulers. Since you justify terror and Muslim mob’s violence on the basis of some historical wrongs, you should have no problem in this 3 rd option. This perfectly fits in with your model of thinking.

Cow protection is here to stay. It is part of the ethos of this civilization. A huge majority reveres cows. That’s why it is one the directive principles of our Constitution and almost every state has laws for cow protection -enacted when even the Hindu hater Congress was in power. Learn to respect what the majority reveres whatever may be your individual opinion. It also respects Bhagwan Ram and Krisha. That’s the simple fact of life.

For records, I and ( I think almost every Hindu) do not support killings whatever may be the provocation. The crime must be investigated for its motives and culprits must be punished. But I am very keen to see the existing convicts to serve their sentences. There must be first cum first serve for this also. Right?

If you refuse to accept any of the above. keep shouting. Majority of of this country doesn’t read or watch your partisan outrages. They have a good measure of you. They don’t speak except through the ballot.

You will continue to lose elections and stay as a fringe of India.

The ‘Theory of Akhilesh Win’ and BJP

Image source: myind.net

 

Assembly elections in UP and other states are around the corner.  Desperate to stop Modi juggernaut, alliances are being made and unmade. Here is one in UP

UP’s Mahagathabandhan =Akhilesh’s SP-+Mulayam’s old guard + -Congress + -RLD Other local parties too are coming together on ‘secular’ platform.

The pluses and minuses change daily like in a soap opera. The Yadav family drama has caught the fancy of our pseudo-everything main stream media. Very eager to see Modi humbled and bundled out, the media clutches at every tenuous thread to prop any challenger -Kejriwal, Hardik, Mayawati, Mamata, and Rahul being air dropped between his vacations. Media’s latest knight in shining armour is Akhilesh.

The ‘Theory of Akhilesh Win’

Media’s ‘Theory of Akhilesh Win’ goes like this: SP faced anti-incumbency. With his bold gambit of throwing out old guard Akhilesh would overcome negative performance and image of his own government. The EC dutifully gives him the ‘Cycle’ instead of freezing the symbol. Akhilesh’s youth and Muslim vote in pocket and some laptops would be enough to sweep aside Modi’s BJP.

Then the soap opera’s conductor adds a twist to the script. The father, the son, and the uncles would soon get together for a family selfie. Our media spinners spin a new sub-theory -Maulana’s return would bring back Muslim votes which would have been captured by Mayawati.

Mayawati’s vote trawler

She has a trawler with her vote-fishing net having 97 floats thrown out in UP’s waters muddied by caste and Muslim factors. Mayawati stares at her fishing net’s 97 bobbing nodes and wonders whether to focus on Muslims or her wads of SC votes.

Congress, seeking a semblance of relevance, declares its alliance with Akhilesh. Our media is ecstatic.

Politics is changing, opposition doesn’t get it

This is how electoral politics has played out all along in India -deals, counter deals, back deals, reward the rebels, encash votebanks of castes and be very afraid of Muslim vote.

If one looks at the enthusiastic support by common people to demonetization, one knows that India under its PM’s leadership has already changed and it is changing. When Modi exhorts BJP to be transparent about its funding, one can assume that he is throwing another challenge to the political class.

By this time, details of BJP MPs’ and MLAs’ cash deposits from November 8th to December 30th must be under processing.

Modi has irrevocably altered India’s political economy. He is combining a revamped and bigger subsidy regime with a business-friendly environment and infrastructure development with boosting small and tiny businesses through Mudra loans. Demonetization, e-transactions and GST are ushering in a faster economy.  A grocer, a shoe shine wala and every ordinary Indian have tasted the advantages of digital economy and what it means to get transfers of subsidies and payments directly in one’s bank account.  In rural households, LPG connections are replacing smoking chullahs. She knows that her ‘notes’ are safer in her bank than in her kitchen. She feels empowered and is no longer a beggar that the Congress had reduced her to be. She is a tough task master.

Right under the nose of opposition political parties and media, Modi is transforming India’s politics too. While they are creating fiction of intolerance, church attacks, and Dalit deaths, India’s politics is changing from job reservations to livelihood and wealth creation, from fear of technology to embracing it and innovating, from mere demands to people’s participation as seen during demonetization crunch, from main stream media to social media and specialty media. That’s why some ’eminent’ journalists are clamoring for gagging the social media.

Public mood is changing from cynicism about crime and scams to taking on the monsters of black money  and terror.  When else would you find the Prime Minister and the most watched and followed politician launching BHIM app for person to person transfer funds based on indigenously developed technology?

Opposition parties are scared of Modi’s budget coming right before the polling for assembly elections begins. They know that something has changed but they don’t get what -conditioned as they are by decades of Congress style of politics.

But what about the BJP?

I had written in my article on June 12, 2016

“The worrying fact is that BJP is playing the game set up by its opposition.”  Read more https://www.myind.net/elections-bjps-tough-road-ahead

At that time, BJP lacked an overarching emotive appeal that would transcend caste and religion considerations. Surgical strikes against Pakistan and the war on black money which has reached every household are those overarching issues now. From its towering leader, BJP couldn’t have asked for more. Then there are powerful local issues like bleak law and order, communal riots, and Kairana exodus.  Akhilesh has nothing to show and everything to hide for his rule of five years.

As I write this, I am aware of RSS’s Manmohan Vaidya’s statement on reservations at the Jaipur Literature Festival. The opposition and main stream media are quite thrilled because they are good at twisting facts to suit them.  For an ever-defensive BJP, this provides another reason to stay on back foot. If BJP snatches defeat from the jaws of victory, this would be an excuse like it was in Bihar elections. The reason wasn’t valid in Bihar of 2015. It will be even less valid in UP and India of 2017.

You can’t learn how to win from losers of 2014. You can surely learn something from the winner, your top leader and India’s PM -work on your message and deliver it aggressively.

Is BJP afraid of losing UP ? 

Afraid to do anything ‘wrong’ lest it doesn’t win, it stitches an alliance of castes and plans to select candidates accordingly. BJP hears about Akhilesh-Congress alliance and it goes on defensive. It forgets its own PM’s huge achievements and its declared poll planks -surgical strikes and demonetization. On top of allotting tickets to Congress and BSP rebels it welcomes a thoroughly discredited ND Tiwari in its fold. BJP later plays down the whole sordid episode after a huge protest by its supporters on social media. In 2012, BJP had welcomed BSP’s Babu Singh Kushwaha infamous for NRHM scam.  In 2004, it had welcomed strongman and history sheeter DP Yadav.

Worse, when its workers die at the hands of leftists and jihadis in states like Kerala, It doesn’t take the state governments to task. It ignores Hindu traditions to be trampled by foreign-funded NGOs emboldened by a lopsided judicial overreach.  Our pseudo-secular opposition doesn’t see anything wrong in casteist and minority appeasement politics and letting corrupt contest elections. Is BJP afraid of bad press?

BJP may sweep polls, but we need better politics from it

Union Budget will most likely consolidate and build upon Modi Government’s pro-poor and development reputation. Modi’s rallies in UP will be another big factor. These factors and the emotive and substantive issues mentioned above may transcend Congress politics. UP’s main parties SP and BSP are not likely to come together. Therefore, it is quite possible that BJP will sweep the UP polls. But we expect far better politics and communication by the largest political party.

Indians are getting the big picture about DeMonetisation that the ‘Intellectuals’ are missing

Millions of ordinary Indians are enthusiastically supporting demonetization because they understand it.

Ordinary Indians know that in demonetization and what follows it, they have a once in a life time opportunity to leave a better India for their children.

Well below the radars of the media and the political parties, India has been changing silently. The change gathered pace under the technology savvy leadership of the indefatigable PM Modi.

Some time back, I wrote about India’s technology powered silent revolution-

“A silent revolution is going on in India’s noisy democracy. So silent that it easy to miss it amid our politics of protests. India’s capacity to transform itself is getting better.

India is leapfrogging ahead of advanced economies through pervasive use of technology in governance and public services. Indians are switching from being beggars of State to being participative and being demanding citizens.”

(Read https://www.myind.net/silent-revolution-going-indias-noisy-democracy )

Press headlines, TV news tickers, pundits and economists and political parties miss the above technology enabled revolution of Digital India.

But what they are now missing is much bigger.

There have been straws in the wind.  PM Modi’s campaign made over a crore people give up LPG subsidy. This was unprecedented. Compare this gesture of goodwill by a large and vocal section of population with that of all pervasive cynicism of decades of Sonia and Congress raj.

Modi-led BJP and NDA swept the polls due to anger towards Congress misrule and due to his promise of development. Many thought, the pundits were sure, and the opposition hoped that BJP and NDA’s victory was just a wave or a tide and that it would subside or turn soon. The Delhi and Bihar elections seemed to confirm this.

Then the surgical strikes against Pakistan happened.  It won every Indian’s approval. As opposition was trying to pick non-existent holes and question whether surgical strikes really happened or not using Pakistani sources, PM Modi announced the big bang demonetization.

Economists may give out sophisticated predictions about this that and the GDP,  but even the illiterate person knows that ‘notes’ are necessary for all the above crimes because he had been made to hand them under the table or he had to do with less ‘notes; because the middleman would keep the rest. They know implicitly that if notes are crucial to run their lives, they are even more crucial to turn the wheels of crime silently and secretly. Women, who by habit squirrel away tiny bundles of notes to tide over emergencies, get this even better. They know that they have nothing to hide but the criminals need the secrecy of notes.

But they had become accustomed to see politicians protecting those of their ilk. No one had imagined that a Modi would come and break the back of the corrupt and make the criminals run for cover.

They now know that the PM is on their side and that he is taking on the entire establishment. He truly is their PM.

The demonetization brought them a once in a life time opportunity to do something for their country as a part of their day to day work. Their PM is asking them to suffer the queues (which they are used to), to help each other (which they do often), to learn about cards and wallets and go cashless (didn’t they learn cellphones and WhatsApp?). For their efforts they would get a cleaner and more peaceful society. And they all rose to accept the challenge.

When PM Modi recently asked us to participate in maha yagya to defeat black money, corruption, crime, and terror he spoke a language alien to economists and those who have not gone beyond the western education. He spoke a language not known to the corrupt and criminals. But he spoke the language that Hindus and Muslims and Christians and everyone of India can understand. He spoke the language which even the illiterate connect with.

Yagya means worship and devotion through offerings (aahuti) to the sacred fire.

When one looks at the near universal support for demonetization among common people, when one can identify with their sense of purpose in willingly endure the inconveniences and unfortunate suffering in some cases, it is clear that the fight against corruption, crime, black money, and Jehadi terror has become a maha yagya. In PM Modi’s words:

मुझेविश्वासहैभाईयों, जिसदेशमेंसवासौकरोड़देशवासियोंकेआशीर्वादहोंवहांपरकालाधनकाखात्मासंभवहै, भ्रष्टाचारकाखात्मासंभवहै, भाईयोंबहनोंदेशअच्छीदिशामेंजानेकेलिएतैयारबैठाहैऔरमुझेविश्वासहैयेदेशइसमहायज्ञमें, ईमानदारीकेमहायज्ञमें, देशवासियोंकोकष्टझेलकरकेभीआहूतिदेतेमैंदेखरह

People now wait expectantly for Modiji’s every move against the ills that plague their country. They are willing to participate and do their bit for the country. They know this is their once in a life time opportunity to leave behind a better future for their children.

Indians are getting the big picture that the big are missing.
