See, see RaGa is speaking…Ha Ha Ha

  • Congress President Rahul Gandhi addresses public meeting in Agartala
    Congress President Rahul Gandhi addresses public meeting in Agartala

Can anyone advice Rahul Gandhi (RaGa) that what he and the other nincompoops of the Indian National Congress (INC) are doing in the name of electioneering campaign by targeting the defence forces of the country is only going to decimate their prospect – even if there is any, left? What does it take really to win elections in this country? The defence personnel who are keeping their territory safer from external aggression are being targeted by the INC, insanely. Can RaGa and his inept sister, Priyanka – and her equally inept hunk, Robert Vadra, breath freely if the soldiers in the country aren’t keeping it safe. Can anyone, and for that matter of fact the president of one of the country’s so called national party speak such imprudently in public. Does it not look like that the INC and its leaders are digging their own graves by punching national security and defence sector. Can a sensible Indian vote for a party which speaks in tune with the separatists, terrorists, skull caps, Pakistan and all the anti-India jibes?

That the INC does not have any agenda to woo voters in the ensuing general election can be gauged from their questioning the retaliation strike by the defence establishments in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack. The BJP won the 2014 election riding high on the “misdeeds” and “scams” committed by the INC led UPA whereas the latter literally finds nothing to take a charge on the “clean” NDA dispensation. What the INC and its morons are resorting to is basically out of dejection and frustration, which is normally the case when one, finds nothing to throw into their opposition. If the party have any sensible brain left then it is high time that people RaGa and other congressmen, including its apologists, should be told that what they are resorting to is only earning them public ire and nothing else. Today, the trash that the congressmen are throwing in the public is only pleasing its own and not the countrymen – who have time and again showed their preference in various Congress shows itself.

What does RaGa have in him? Nothing, though you need to have something when you head a party of the largest democracy. Those who think that RaGa is facing more flak have perhaps forgotten that his statements, whenever he opens his mouth, qualify him right away for criticism. Okay he may not have anything to offer in politics but what should one judge, when he says, “Saffron Terrorism is a larger threat than Islamic Terrorism”, if not appeasing the skull caps. Is it not a laughing stock that universities and institutions invite him to talk when he says, “I woke up in the morning last night” and more insultingly, “Poverty is a mindset” in a country like India – where the INC has deliberately kept the people deprived and poor in their sixty years regime, since independence. One can get a picture of his knowledge on his own country from this, “There’s so much of unemployment in Gujarat. About 27,000 crore jobs are lying vacant there”. Now, how can Gujarat have 27,000 crore vacant jobs lying when the population of this country is 130crores? Or more recently, when he said that all BJP leaders in the country are corrupt, what is the message that he is trying to send when NDA’s governance has been spotless. RaGa, go and get your facts right first, then go and talk in public. You have no right to criticize and insult Indian engineers for manufacturing semi-high speed train, Vande Bharat Express, under Make in India initiative that has developed mere technical snags. Those snags have been rectified since but could RaGa address the same in him.

When one is born in a family with silver spoon in their mouth they are expected to do well in order to keep up that legacy. There is tremendous burden on such shoulders and especially in this case when you are compared with your father, grandmother and grandfather. Arguably, Rajiv Gandhi (RG’s father) and Indira Gandhi (RG’s grandmother) would not have stooped to his level and take over a century old party, straight to hell. But this hellish ways, he has imbibed from his great grandfather (Jawaharlal Nehru) – whose blunders – whether it is Jammu and Kashmir, Northeast, Indo-China war and what had he – costing this country to this date. Imagine, what PM would RaGa make if he happens to get a chance to lead this country. This country cannot afford to have another Nehru like blunderbuss at the helm of all affairs. Many, who don’t want to imagine this, observed that this nation may well go back to darkness from whatever improvement that can be noticed for the last five years, now.

So, the journalist who asked RaGa in UK last year that what he has brought to politics apart from his surname, was spot on but the reply of RaGa that he should be judged by his “capability” and not be “condemned” for his family only proves the nothingness in him. He also urged others to listen to him, talk about issues, such as, foreign policy, economics, Indian development, agriculture openly and freely. How can one expect a sensible discussion with him when has no knowledge about his own country and speaks utter rubbish about issues on which he wishes to talk? Laughing stock. However, RaGa should concentrate on everything else – other than national security, defence, religion or anything else about the country – if at all the stemming humor has any effect on the electorates.

For RaGa to create any impact, whatsoever, he has to think out of the box. Given his “reach”, he should take the help of public relations specialists and try to revive the prospect of his party. He has to understand the fact that if Modi is creating waves with his chai, pradhan sevak, chowkidar and rest of it then he has to come out with smarter ideas instead of beating arrogance in public with dead appeasement tactics. As a leader, he has to show more maturity since he is competing with a persona who is regarded world over and shares a mass base. When Modi says that his vision is to see that the Indian democracy shall always fly and to make it a trillion dollar economy than RaGa’s accomplices like the ever aging Deve Gowda should make more responsible statements instead of saying that the only agenda of the Mahagathbandhan is to stop Modi. What do you mean by saying so that you don’t want the development of the country and its people? What message are you sending to the populace? The INC – which has been running this country and the independent states since independence like private jagirs have to shift its gear or else their current ways is only going to have a suicidal end. The electorates of this country are getting a reassuring example about the lack of patriotism of the INC and its foolish Mahagathbandhan leaders. If the INC leaders had any patriotism in them after the Britons left then they would not have deprived the people of this country from their entitlements and development. Now that Modi is trying to revive and giving the aam aadmi their dues, the morons, on the other side, are seeing that their “businesses” are at stake. Today, none can think of committing another fodder scam since the chowkidar in Modi will not allow that to happen. The INC and its bunch of Mahagathbandhan buffoons should realize the fact that they cannot fool the fellow citizen all the time.

Will Assam Government protect RTI activist

26 Aug 2010 - 9:25pm | Ranjan K Baruah


The Right to Information act has helped many people from different parts of the state to seek information from various government departments. But it’s ironical that even in a democratic country one has to face many challenges when good initiatives are being initiated. The Right to Information act has revealed many interesting stories from different parts of the country after the act was implemented.


Though social activists have used it and revealed many abnormalities in the departments instead some of the activists are being threatened after using RTI for seeking information. On the other the tragedy is that so far 7 RTI activists have been killed this year in different parts of the country. Activists who have used faced many problems and it is now important for the state government to protect them at any cost.


There have been many abnormalities in the distribution of foods in different parts of the country including the state of Assam. The Public Distribution System has not been strengthened as a result of which there has been corruption in the cooperatives or others associated with foods. Right to Food campaign has to be organized by civil society organization as there have been abnormalities in the state of Assam. The recent arrest of Ex Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh in connection with PDS scam shows that there might be more players associated with it.


Organizations or individuals who are working for the Right to Food have been using RTI for getting the information. In this regard many activists have faced challenges and threatening from different source from time to time. ‘I am trying to find out information of the beneficiaries under APL and BPL category by using RTI but now it has bought many challenges as my case is still pending and I have to take bail’, said Sanjit Das , an RTI activist from Ghogra village of Dhekiajuli Block in Sonitpur district. He has been disturbed by people for whom he had to move from place to place. Sanjeet Das is associated with Swaraj , a people organisation working for the people in some parts of Sonitopur District, he got bail on May 29.


Mr. Das filed an application under RTI demanding the list of beneficiaries of commodities distributed under the PDS on September 22 last year in his locality. On October 27 last year he received a reply from the Deputy Director of Supplies stating that he had to pay Rs 6,000 to get the information. Not understanding why he had to pay this amount, he made an appeal to the Deputy Commissioner. Instead of getting justice he was beaten up by some of the agents under PDS in police station which shows corruption is rampant in the state of Assam in various stages.


Now it has become interesting whether Mr. Sanjeet Das will get justice and all necessary information or some of the corrupted people will be behind him and foil his democratic movement.


"The activist and peoples movement is the product of state government failures to hold peoples sentiments, its no different whether governments exist or not, the people would survive without them”, said Saito Basumatary of People Rights Forum a network of civil society organization working on Right to Food Campaign in the north east. He added that there is no wrong when the activist challenges the government democratically, they are not taking arms against them, the government do not have to invite them to the mainstream as activists are very much part of the mainstream and yet they are threatened by the state agents and mafias.




NEUFC in the ISL 2015

14 Nov 2015 - 5:00am | AT News

After losing the opening three games, few would have expected NorthEast United FC to be in contention for a top 4 spot at the business end of the Indian Super League. However, the side led by Cesar Farias have put together a neat little run of late, racking up some vital points on the road. The recent performances set things up nicely for the Highlander's last five games, out of which four will be played at home.

"It is all about having patience. Everything is a product of hard work and planning things with patience.", remarked the Head Coach after the game against Chennaiyin FC. After their win against the Chennai based side, NorthEast United created history for themselves by coming from behind to win a game in the Hero Indian Super League for the first time. Cesar offered his reasoning on the same, "We were plagued with injuries to key players at the beginning of the tournament. It affected the squad balance and did not allow us to rotate the squad when our players were fatigued.We made appropriate replacements and now we are coming up with better results."

The return of Marquee Man, Simao Sabrosa from injury has also proved to be a galvanizing point for the Highlanders. "He is an inspiration to everyone in the team", Farias stated, "He has that effect whenever he walks into the dressing room. His return gave us a lift and the boys will tell you that themselves." The former Portuguese National Team captain is buoyed by the recent run, "Our team is a big family. The relationship that the players and the staff have in this team is so unique. I am happy to be with such an excellent bunch of people. We never let defeats deflate the team. We do not let victories get to our heads. The injuries that affected the team are now behind us. We are focussed on the task ahead." Scoring two penalties that handed NEUFC two wins against the Champions, Atletico De Kolkata and a sublime free-kick that hauled the side back into the game against Delhi Dynamos, the former Atletico Madrid man is a key figure in the side who leads by example."

Local boys Alen Deory and Halicharan Narzary echo Simao's sentiments, "We are one big family. Whether you play or not is inconsequential. Everyone has a part to play. Everyone is there to contribute whenever called upon. It is also about development of Indian football and we are focussing on improving our football." said young Alen when quizzed about his thoughts. Sanju Pradhan also opines along the same lines, "It takes time to settle in with the coach's philosophy and his train of thought. But we are now focussed on sealing the top 4 spot. His substitutions have always had an impact during games and the whole squad is happy with how we are performing as a unit."

The defense has certainly received a huge boost after the addition of Andre Bikey and the big Cameroonian is keeping his feet on the ground after a fleet of impressive performances, "We need to address the situation game by game. Wins need to be left behind and not celebrated because the minute the whistle blows and a few hours pass, it is in the past. We now need to maximize the games that we have at home. Once we do that, we can take satisfaction in the fact that we have given something to our loyal fans."

Team physios, Tanveer Siddiqui and Utsav Shah are happy with the fitness levels of the squad, "We believe that we have left the worst behind us. The squad is displaying remarkable levels of fitness and tenacity even though the tournament is an intense one. We believe that the tournament will favor the squad that is the fittest and we are endeavoring to make our team fit that criteria." 

Few know what happened during NorthEast United FC's morale boosting draw against Delhi Dynamos FC. With more than a quarter of the stadium having ineffective flood-lights, the Highlanders had an opportunity to walk away if they would have insisted on not playing. However, the Highlanders participated in a thrilling contest and earned much good-will at the end of the game, an attitude transmitted to the team by the owner John Abraham who advocates fair-play.

NEUFC's captain Cedric Hengbart is looking forward to the four home games that lie ahead, "Hopefully our fans would be filling up the stadium to support us and back us to the hilt. We would love nothing more than to seal a top four spot in front of them. They have been patient with us and have given us unconditional support. We want to reward them for their support."

With the ISL table extremely tight and the competition heating up, NEUFC will need to continue it's good form if it is to seal a top four spot in what looks to be an extremely competitive Hero Indian Super League season.
