UPA/ Gandhi Vs NDA/Modi… Ek taraf uska ghar, ek taraf maikadaa…

Published June 28, 2013 by vishalvkale

Zindagi ek hai aur talabgaar do
Jaan akeli magar jaan ke huqdaar do
dil bataa pehle kiskaa karoon huq adaa
Ek taraf uskaa ghar ek taraf maikadaa
Is talluq ko main kaise todun zafar
kisko apnau main kisko chhodun zafar
meraa dono se rishtaa hai nazdeek kaa
Ek taraf uskaa ghar ek taraf maikadaa


The immediate aftermath of the sad Uttarakhand tragedy has highlighted aspects of both sides of the political spectrum which are disturbing; while you have the Modi phenomenon with the much-touted “help-Gujarati only” approach, with intervention in the middle of a tragedy; and Rahul Gandhi and his Z-Plus security visit which forced a closure of an ITBP location… leaving me wondering: who to choose, on whose side to go, who to vote for – or is it that none of these is deserving of my vote… the only weapon I have to express my desires and my aspirations!

THE FIRST SIDE
First, let us take the famous Modi rescue mission. Having read both sides of the “equation” – I have but one query for the NDA, and one for the GoI. If indeed Mr Modi did rescue Gujaratis only, then my question is : aren’t the other victims deserving of rescue? As a Maharashtrian Indian, am I now to be treated differently from Gujaratis Indians? It pains me to write these words, but in the light of what I have read online, this is a pertinent query. We are all Indians and are equal in front of any State or Central Government, and this blatant discrimination – if true – is disturbing.  Very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very disturbing. And if this is false, why hasnt anyone denied this and clarified with an equal amount visibility? I certainly haven’t read any rebuttals!

Narendra Modi lands in Uttarakhand, flies out with 15,000 Gujaratis

Uttarakhand: Narendra Modi targeted by Yashwant Sinha

This, sir, is not acceptable. This way lies anarchy: should residents of Maharashtra now start looking to their State Government above the Indian Nation? Is a state more important? Should MP domiciles start looking after MP-ites only, to the exclusion of all else? This is just not acceptable. Till this happened, I was looking forward to the US response in case Modi takes over as PM… their snootiness towards Modi would have to take a back seat! It was a tantalisingly delicious prospect and dream of meeting those holier-than-thou geniuses in the US of A. Not anymore; I am no longer with Mr Modi or the NDA. Not after this Gujarati-only approach. I am only an Indian : my language and my state-hood are not in the least important. I demand equality: and give equality. It is also my right!

THE SECOND SIDE
Coming to Mr Gandhi and the GoI, first of all – how has this much touted visit by Gandhi (which was after the Modi visit) helped? Was it a genuine help effort, or an attempt to stem the slide caused by Modi and his Gujaratisms? What practical good was achieved? Answer:

ITBP DG denies officers evicted from Gauchar mess to accommodate Rahul Gandhi, says they were relocated

And the DG of ITBP says Rahul Gandhi’s security was of paramount importance! More important than even saving lives, is it? And the officers were not removed, they were relocated!!!!! Pray tell me what is the difference? And removal of officers – howsoever temporary – must have caused some problems. That is simple logic. 

So, my dear GOI, tell me – a simple, powerless citizen of India – is Rahul Gandhi more important than saving thousands of lives? And how is it that a rank-outsider like Modi can just waltz into a disaster area unannounced and without clearance and organise a Rambo-style rescue? Insofar as Uttarakhand tragedy is concerned – outside of the Armed Forces, Uttarakhand State Government and Central Government – everyone else is persona-non-grata. How did Modi pull it off? Why did Rahul’s security demand vacation of a rescue camp in one of the worst natural disaster hit areas in India???? Who gave them the bloody guts to do that?  That means there is no control of any kind: every man for himself, is it? What a positively fabulous way of running a government! Awesome: you have my personal congratulations! 

That leaves me with 2 options: on one side, a party that fields a Help-Gujarati-Only man as a prime candidate; and on the other side a party who places personal security over and above the convenience of people engaged in rescue work, a party that mismanages this whole sick episode…

Who do I choose?  Maikadaa chunoon – yaa “Uske” ghar jaaon?

Maikadaa ==> bar
Us: in this example above: I have taken it to mean “the other woman”

Both are dangerous!!!!

Ai gham-e-zindagi kuch to de mashvaraa
Ek taraf uskaa ghar ek taraf maikadaa
main kahaa jaaoon hotaa nahi faislaa
Ek taraf uska ghar ek taraf maikadaa…
