How Dare They???

Sonia Gandhi who now declares "We can no longer sit back....."
This after almost 5 years of governance!!!

Sure you can't sit back, lady...Not with elections round the corner.

L.K Advani & Raj Nath Singh who refused to participate in the Government's all party meet because they wanted to go campaigning...
Non participation makes the blame game so much easier, does it not?

The CM of Maharashtra who visited the Taj with his entertainer son and a film director in tow...
Gifting Idea for the Deshmukh family: A copy of Julius Caesar with the "Caesar's wife must be above suspicion" quote flagged for easy reference???

R.R. Patil, the Dy. CM of Maharashtra, who claims that such incidents can happen in a big city
What if it had been the state Government which was held hostage in its seat of power?

Abhishek Singhvi who told the survivors of the ordeal, & an entire nation, that if R.R Patil remotely meant what he said, to trivialise the acts of terror in anyway, he would be the first to condemn him.
Seriously Mr. Singhvi, who bloody cares what he meant?

Interestingly, in the NDTV show 'We The People' aired earlier this evening, Barkha Dutt mentioned that the channel had attempted and failed to rope in several politicians to participate in a discussion with the survivors of the ordeal and a few leading citizens of the city. Apparently, Abhishek Singhvi was the only one who accepted the gauntlet.
So why didn't Ms. Dutt name the politicians and expose them for the yellow bellied skunks they are?

Post Update
And just when we thought the politicos couldn't sink any lower, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi of the "lipstick & powder" gaffe and V S Achuthanandan of " ....Even a dog would not have visited that house" fame, stepped up to restore the public's faith in the Slime Quotient of our politicians.

When will we see light at the end of the tunnel???

Abhilash Suryan said...

But Politicians aren't Martians!! They do come from among our midst, and every nation gets the Government it deserves.....

Miaow!!! said...

Shail, everytime my anger comes down a few notches, I hear something so incredibly ridiculous that it gets my blood boiling again!!!

Vishwanathan, The kerala CM who was snubbed by Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan's disraught father tried his hand at disaster management by retorting that if it had not been Sandeep's house, not even a dog would have looked that way......

Yes Abhilash, we do get the leaders we deserve and we Indians have no one to blame for the mess this country is in other than ourselves...On the one hand, we scream for accountability and on the other, we are quite unwilling to demand it..
The politicians are answerable for their actions and words, to the citizens of their country...Accountability is not a privelege they confer on their electorate, it is the right of the masses. So far, we Indians have chosen to waive aside our right to demand results from our politicos. And if we continue to do so, there is going to be precious little left of this country..
Today Mumbai, tomorrow it can be anywhere else...And only we will have ourselves to blame!!
