The Lovable Poison:
On November 20 NCW member Nirmala Prabhawalkar, talking to Rajdeep Sardesai, stated they have no reason to believe the letter of the father of Madhuri (an alias) mentioning he doesn’t want to lodge any complaint, that the surveillance was with his knowledge was authentic. I wonder how she arrived at that conclusion. Has she read the letter herself? Was there any forensic examination to check whether it is authentic? Had she spoken to the father? This trash was passed by Rajdeep and no questions were asked. The NCW chairperson Mamata Sharma earlier stated they would not pursue the matter further after the father’s letter. She is contesting elections on a Congress ticket from Rajasthan and on November 21 again changed her position on it. Cobrapost seems to have had these snoop videos for a while but they timed it after the Sachin retirement show and just before the Tehelka rape scandal broke. Stalking, snooping and all kinds of words were used against Narendra Modi.
In 48 hours the media ‘Hammam’ had to face the rude jolt of actual rape incident of one of their own. This was worse than the snooping, stalking or surveillance that they wanted to flatten Modi with. I have every reason to believe based on sombre responses to the Tarun Tejpal rape of a young woman that all media celebs were already aware of the incident. Barkha, Rajdeep, Sagarika are all practically in the Hammam with Tehelka and they have enough “sources” from within to know what had happened. They simply didn’t expect the crap would hit the fan. So the Cobrapost moronery was dealt a blow. But let’s leave Tehelka for another day. It is how the Congress has tried to smear Modi that is miserably failing. And why such a continuous effort? Didn’t the Queen say “power is poison”? So what is she hankering after?
Oh yeah, power is poison she said. Her son understood the deep philosophy behind those words and repeated them at his party meeting in January 2013. The media parrots did their “wah wah” at such an emotional sacrifice that both mother and son were constantly making. Why then does Sonia Gandhi who thinks power is poison love it so much that she floats bankrupting schemes like FSB or MNREGA? She got an economy in reasonably good shape in 2004 but by 2012-13 there were no buyers for even privatisation shares or even foreign FDI retail investors who were willing to risk investing in India. Imagine the economy was a plate of fish the Congis got in 2004. What you see in 2013 is it’s been eaten right down to the bones. Nothing left. And the Congress GOI has no clue where the next fish is coming from but keeps throwing money around. Everywhere you turn there has been massive loot and scams. Why does poison then have so much attraction for her and Rahul Gandhi? Here’s a clipping from The Michigan Daily of September 11, 1977:
The Boeing Company confirmed the payment in a testimony to the US Senate. I am not aware what happened to that story and how it ended. With what face are these Chinese Gandhis going around saying “power is poison”? RahulG was born into power and turned out a duffer on every issue he talks about and has earned the nickname “Pappu”. That is not all, the culture of mega-scams first started with Bofors when Rajiv Gandhi was in charge. What was his poison? Nobody is in doubt where the money went and who were the people involved. Power is poison? Dr. Subramaniam Swamy often refers to Swiss bank accounts and payments by Russians to the Gandhis in a book by Yevgenia Albats. Here’s a clipping from her book that is shocking to read.
If power was such poison and all that motivated Sonia Gandhi to fight for power is to serve the poor and “all inclusive, all inclusive” or screaming “secular, secular, secular’ how does she explain all the scams and corruption under her nose? Or is that she is so busy minding the poison that she is totally unaware of what goes on?
It is the first time in 66 years in political battles that one man is so severely threatening the Congress and threating the poison Sonia loves so much. And why so much loot and so many scams? Where does the money go? Perhaps some of it goes to ‘personal welfare’ of Congis but a good bit also goes to ‘buying out the media mafia’ and election campaigns. That’s the only purpose Congress exists. To somehow win elections! RahulG goes around asking the BJP claims development but who that development is for. The poor villagers don’t get to question him but you do. After all, one of the highest individual growths in terms of wealth is that of one other than Robert Vadra (who, incidentally, is a small farmer). And then how do they counter Modi? With name-calling crap! Call him Hitler, fascist, divisive, polarising but by now people are tired and this mud-slinging keeps making him more popular. The Congress has so denuded and devalued the PM’s office that even he isn’t spared from being called “Chor” or people are now reacting harshly with placards like in the image. Let’s take up a case study.
RahulG got his nickname “Pappu” for his stupid, mindless utterances. So the Congis sponsored a nickname “Feku” for Modi. What happened? The day #Feku trended the media mafia, NDTV, CNN-IBN in particular, ran special programmes on #Feku. They enjoyed that somehow Modi had a nickname. But did it last? Pappu is a “positioning” in people’s minds. #Feku was a sponsored brand that didn’t last. Hardly anyone uses #Feku anymore but #Pappu continues to endure. Even the media morons started using #Pappu in their tweets. But they never ran any programmes on the Pappu phenomenon. In a political battle, when people give a name to someone it is difficult to erase; like ‘10%’ nickname given to Zardari of Pakistan. When a name is part sponsored by the media, it doesn’t last long. Telly-Troll Barkha Dutt may just be tweeting lightly, but you cannot miss her deep desire to make “Sahebzada” stick to Modi. Will it? Some Congis have to use that in their campaigns. Who will? SoniaG has already burned her fingers and mouth with “Maut ka Saudagar” and she’s comfortable reading from Italian scripts. Will Pappu do it? If he does, he will probably also put his foot in his mouth again and shoot it too, a la “Rani Ki Jhansi”.
Can Narendra Modi be criticised? Sure! And he must be criticised but not foolishly with mindless blabbering and name-calling. I have trashed Modi a couple of times and his fanatic followers were up in arms. I trashed him on the “Sauchalaya first, Devalaya later” nonsense also and the response of the fanatics was no different. It is okay if Jairam says “Toilets first, temples later” because he belongs to a Chrislam party. Jairam doesn’t calculate how many toilets he can build if Congis hadn’t scammed over 10 lakh crores. Jairam is a sidekick, Modi is a PM candidate. Why should Modi indulge in that nonsense? If toilets are a priority for Modi why did he prioritise the Sabarmati River Front (SRF)? I would estimate the total cost of SRF at around 5K-10K crores or thereabouts. If he had built roads, no problems! If he had built schools, no problems! If he had built hospitals, no problems! But why SRF? Did anyone demand it? Was it a pressing need for the people? Did people petition Modi to speed up the SRF? Were people suffering without the SRF like some suffer without a toilet? Most Amdavadis weren’t even aware of such a project for many years. Nothing! No reason other than beautification of the city or a passion.
Please do note that the SRF was proposed long back under a Congress govt, Modi only prioritised it. He could have prioritised toilets instead. Facts disturb people. No one in the media ever brought this up. Instead, like Barkha they think “White beard” and “Sahebzada” are better election ploys. That could partly be true because if people relied purely on facts would they ever vote for a corrupt and non-democratic Congress? But the Congress corruption and misrule has reached such intolerable levels that nobody is really willing to buy their nonsense anymore. Even Barkha Dutt has temporarily stopped “evolving” Pappu. Other cronies like Rajdeep Sardesai and Sagarika Ghose, unable to tout Congress anymore have turned to the AAP party. When was the last time a news channel analysed a party’s election manifesto? Err… that was in 1857 when Mangal Pandey was around. Since that event the first one to analyse an election manifesto was Karan ‘The Tool’ Thapar who analysed the AAP Party’s election manifesto on November 20. I didn’t watch it but Rajdeep had tweeted about it. Maybe KT analysed the AAP manifesto thoroughly and found Modi was a “divisive and polarising” figure. That’s not so hard, is it? How desperate can these guys get? Unfortunately for Numero Uno and C5M the AAP guys too were caught in a sting operation over fund collections. Life goes on!
So in absence of any real plans or national agenda, the Congress can only hurl rubbish and talk more rubbish. Dr. Rahul Gandhi keeps telling villagers “roads and airports cannot feed you”. The man simply does not understand anything. He now even brazenly lies that the UPA built more roads than the NDA which the UPA govt itself has certified to the contrary in the Supreme Court. So at frequent intervals (sometimes even daily basis) some Cobrapost or Tehelka or NDTV or CNN-IBN has to come up with some nonsense about Modi. It’s desperate times. Oh wait! I have to now drop one player from that list; Tehelka which is now on death bed. The rest, like idiots will keep going and make Modi even more popular. Having nothing to show on the development or governance front, the milking of emotions and playing victim will grow bigger. I am naturally reminded of a different version of “Sing a song of sixpence” except that in this case it’s a Queen and her son (2.37 mins):
Only John Lennon could have dreamed of Royalty as the song does. I leave the meaning of the words in that song to your interpretation. Power corrupts; absolute power… Oops! Ram Jethmalani reminded the Parliament in December 2011 about a change in that saying: “Power corrupts but the prospect of losing power corrupts even more”. It’s now beyond the prospect of losing. It is now a very desperate situation. At times like these maybe it explains why this “poison” is the most loveable option for the Gandhis.
This concludes the ‘Desperate Measures’ series.
