A TUG OF WAR FOR BEING PRESIDENT!
Being the President of India does lap you in utmost luxury no doubt –with vast gardens and dream rooms at the Rashtrapathi Bhavan–but then you have little political clout to get things done on your own. The Westminster kind of democratic governance system that we have confers far more authority on the PM primarily because the people have elected him to lead and spear head a whole Ministry with skilled hands!
Even then, of the 37 nominations filed for contesting this post, 25 have continued to stay in the fray though 9 were rejected outright on technical grounds!
I mention this to help you see for your own self the kind of characters that we have in this contest on the tournament grounds!
A senior citizen from Latur in Maharashtra—Kondekar Vijay Prakash –is one such contestant. Vijay Narain Pal of Rashtreeya Viklang Party is another. Still another hot blood is Sushil Kumar Agrawal, a simple law graduate. Two hail from Delhi and are basically businessmen-viz. Daya Shankar Agrawal and Amit Kumar Sharma. TDR Harishchandra Gowda, “an international astrologer” by his own claim, is another one. One person is an evergreen aspirant from Salem, given to losing in every election, by name Dr Padma Raja “the Election King”. A non-RJD man goes by the same name as Lalu.
A Mumbai couple also is passionate about taking on the President and Vice President Chairs; they are Saira Vano Mohammed Patel and her hubby Mohammed Patel. A Veerappan relative Agni Sreramachandram is also playing. A representative of the Bharat Ashraya Seva Samithi by name Ajay Kumar Gupta and a Hindustan Janata Party man by name Sanjay Saoji Deshpande are also dreaming hard of Rashtrapathi Bhavan.
The others are by name Mahesh Kumar Nimbekar of Lucknow, Anil Kumar Sharma from the Labor Party of India and Anand Singh Kushwah from Gwalior!
WHAT MERIT DO THESE PERSONS SEE INTHEMSELVES, APART FROM PERSONAL VANITY? I LEAVE THAT TO YOU,MY DEAR READERS!
Now let me dilate on one hot aspirant from the Opposition ranks viz Meira Kumar. She illustrates the hypocrisy of her party and has done so all along; she tells the blackest of lies too. That she was a most incompetent Speaker we all are aware of. She wishes to take out this same horrible incompetence into Rashtrapathi Bhavan.
Let her not hoodwink you or me into believing that it’s all about ideology and not about caste. But for her late father, that pot-bellied guy Jag Jivan Ram, and his caste label, both might never have come into the positions they came into. Caste alone helped the Union ministry decide in her favor.
So Ms Meira Kumar is telling the blackest and the most unconvincing lie that she has told in the whole of her life when she gives her stupid smile and says, “It’s about Ideology and not about caste”
I wonder what ideology she is actually referring to in this context unless it’s the same Storm Petrel or Grendel* demeanor of the Opposition we have today in the Parliament! [*Grendel was the sea monster that disliked happiness and harmony in any form among humans. It could emerge all of a sudden if it heard sounds of human laughter .We are told about how Beowulf killed it in the –palace of King Hrothgar)
As far as I, a lay citizen in this nation can see, the Opposition political outfit has consistently followed and abided by only a SINGLE ideology-the King Louis XIV principle of “After me the Deluge!” .Nothing Else!
Post 2014 Modi accession to PM position, Rahul and Co has only created needless and stupid controversies and unwholesome interruptions in the hallowed Parliament Halls. He has been roaming around the country like a flame thrower and fuming and fretting but entirely in vain.
Neither the residents or Amethi nor those in Rae Bareli- famed Nehru family constituencies- have forgotten the gross neglect into which the Congress party pushed them to live and die!
And we all know it.
Certainly it was not that she was exceptional in any convincing manner at any time in her whole life and career piggybacking on her birth caste label!
The Congress wished to retain the SC/ST Vote Bank by keeping it appeased in this manner for election victory purposes—and it backfired b/coz the party got exposed for its most treacherous intentions towards India and attachment to our hostile neighbor .Plus for lots of scams and shenanigans that are totally unforgivable, given the Sardarjee Sphinx PM rubber stamp or not.
Now the million dollar question arises in front of us all:
DO YOU WISH TO HAVE A SHAMELESS OPPORTUNIST, LIE ADDICT, ZERO IDEOLOGY PRESIDENT FOR THIS COUNTRY?
