Chacha Returns - 2



Chacha Nehru’s foreign policies led to some major failures. His Panchsheel with China collapsed. It led to an invasion in which the Indian Army paid a heavy price. Loss of land to China. Gifting UNSC seat to China. Kashmir issue kept hanging and taken to the UN. His NAM now lies in shambles and meaningless. This kind of generosity still burdens us when PM Modi daringly states “Self interest is not in India’s culture” while addressing a foreign-affairs conference.
Selfishness need not drive us but why should “self-interest” be a bad term in foreign policy? Foreign relations or policy is not an outcome of culture - it is definitely a matter of political self-interest. Nevertheless, unlike Nehru, Modi has been fairly successful in foreign relations and it’s one of the successes of his govt. Thought it must be pointed out that while Modi goes around begging the world to isolate Pakistan, his own govt does not support a Bill to declare Pak a terrorist-state. And then this false belief that development is the solution to all problems is also a delusion. If that were true, then developed countries like US, UK or Germany wouldn’t be facing so much strife. There are still racial problems in the US. Problems of immigrants swamping their culture. Riots were triggered after the recent US elections.

It’s also worth remembering that the ABV govt created more jobs than the UPA of 2004-14. There are many firsts to ABV like the Golden Quadrilateral or the PM Gram Sadak Yojana. The level of satisfaction among people was also higher than previous govts. Notably, ABV didn’t go around begging the world after a near international boycott and sanctions following the nuclear tests of 1998. Yet, BJP lost the election and it certainly wasn’t because of failure on the development front. Part of the reason for loss is sheer arrogance and ignoring their own key constituents.

Chanting the development mantra deludes BJP and the PM and results in glossing over or ignoring social strife. Even the cleansing of politics from criminals promised by Modi has taken a back seat. The BJP is also borrowing politicians who are least aligned with the ideology of the party – if at all there is any ideology left. Here’s what a researcher writes (excerpts):

The common defence by politicians that such cases are politically motivated does not hold water if one is serious about clean politics. And what exactly has Modi done to deal with criminals in politics or corrupt politicians? NOTHING! The BJP guys are very fond of writing books. They released a book on Congress scams. After this book LK Advani expressed regret to SoniaG for naming her. Then the great writers of the BJP again brought out a booklet and CD during the 2014 campaign on Robert Vadra calling it “Damadji”. Well, Damadji is now a happy “expert political commentator” in the media and waltzes around with no action against him. And on the unending Kerala killings of Hindus – the BJP again grandly brings out a book:
The killings of Hindus and even destruction of temples and festivals continue unabated in Kerala, Kashmir and Bengal. And the ModiSlaves keep barking he cannot do anything because he doesn’t have majority in Rajya Sabha or that Law & Order is a State matter. This nonsense of idiotic slaves is the worst crime they deliver to Modi himself. Here are some things that Modi does without RS or the State limits:
The woman who hates the BJP genetically being an Islamic-Terror apologist is in their election war-room in UP. Time and again BJP guys cuddle up to her and the rotten NDTV against whom Modi supporters have waged a long battle against their lies and anti-Hindu, anti-BJP propaganda. Worse, corrupt NDTV which should have been banned or shut down gets 15 crores in govt doles as ads and campaigns. Does this take RS majority to stop? Even if some amounts were pending from the UPA era the whole 15 crores cannot be outstanding to be paid till 2016. And this anti-India channel also filed petitions to stop national projects like Sagarmala. What is the message Modi is sending his staunch supporters? Then you have ministers like Venkiah Naidu who trash Rajputs without investigation against their actions against some Bollywood jerk. You have another minister Menaka Gandhi who calls Makara Sankranti a day of massacre. Are these problems created by lack of majority in RS or State limits? Bengal assaults on Hindus and Hindu traditions get worse every single day:
 
Nothing stops PM Modi from visiting these states and those affected and making strong statements against the killings and violence. What majority in RS does he need for this? I cannot be sure but I can estimate the reasons for such cowardice. If Modi does visit and condemn such violence he will be tarred with his baggage of Gujarat 2002. That is his real fear. There is more. The violent incidents in Kerala and Bengal are not accidental. They are carefully calibrated actions to PROVOKE Modi into doing something and then the Sickulars can play victim and cry “Fedaralism under attack”. But I expect my PM to rise above such fears and do the right thing.

Being a Chacha and letting Hindus die or release stupid books is not the answer. Just as he deployed CRPF in Kolkata to protect BJP offices and officials, he can do the same with Kerala and Bengal. Maybe he can even invoke AFSPA in certain areas where ordinary Hindus live their lives under daily threats. It is the PMs job to attend to these social issues and no amount of development can compensate for lives being lost and traditions being lost. I don’t buy that. ABV, President Kalam and even SoniaG visit Gujarat after the 2002 riots. What stops our PM from Bengal and Kerala? He has shown guts to slam “Gaurakshaks” but Hindus being killed means nothing? Even Christian Missionary fraudulent-conversions merrily continue with no action.

Let’s come to Demonetisation. It heaped misery on millions of Indians with the cash-crunch. We still supported that move as a daring move. Is that the only way to fight black money? No! That would have been great if he had not allowed political parties to escape with their black money. I explained this in “Noteban Blackhole”. Still, instead of only demonetization had a few corrupt politicians and black money hoarders been prosecuted severely that would have sent a larger message. As it stands, not a single corrupt politician fears ModiSarkar and roams around free. Modi is the one who said he will “punish the corrupt”. But what does ModiSarkar do? Sharad Pawar, perceived as one of the most corrupt politicians, is honoured with a Padma award. Go to hell people – I care two hoots about what you think; politics first for me! That’s the message Modi is giving you.

Let’s take another social issue – Jallikattu. The BJP had supported it. Nirmala Sitharaman spoke in its favour in early 2016 too. Yet the deep slumber of ModiSarkar led to agitations in TN. Is your development mantra going to assuage sentiments of people? BJP was made the villain of the whole piece. The true anti-Jallikattu villain, the Congress, on the contrary was mouthing nonsense in support of it. It took 7 days for Venkiah Naidu to even state that it was Congress in 2011 that initiated the Jallikattu-ban. Modi was sleeping and so also his TV-hugging spokies. Such disasters fueled more by the media against BJP are lost on Modi, but he funds NDTV for their anti-Hindu, anti-India, pro-terrorist nonsense.

Last year, a Muslim school principal in Kolkata, Kazi Akhtar was attacked and thrown out for teaching his children the national anthem. Are we to be ashamed of our own national anthem? What stops Modi condemning such actions and demanding that this principal be re-instated in his school? NOTHING! No majority in RS is required. In contrast, when the bogus “attack on Christians” fraud was perpetrated by the media he quickly established a helpline for Christians. Why is there no such helpline for Hindus in Kerala or Bengal? Are they to die like goats? Hindutva has nothing to do with all of this. This is just demanding that all citizens be treated equally and fairly. Oh! But “Development” is the solution to all problems. YES! Enjoy that development when your family head or member is DEAD.

When BJP MP Hukum Singh reported over 300 families from Kairana (UP) were forced to leave their homes and town by Muslim goons not one BJP member, MP or MLA stood by him. The media trashed it as lies. The Opposition claimed it was communal fear-mongering. Now, during UP elections, Rajnath Singh tells us such exodus will never happen again. Just as Ram Mandir crap before UP elections such bogus promises are held out. Why didn’t the HM go to Kairana and resolve issues? That Hindus will be safe ONLY if BJP is in govt? Is that the stupid logic? We have seen that Hindus suffer even when the BJP-Centre is voted with great majority. And no less than the SC has ruled that it’s the job of the State and the Centre where communal conflicts happen:
As a PM, Modi needs to assert himself and send out a clear message that such nonsense will not be tolerated. But he has no words for such issues. That development will solve these problems. No they will not. Year after year in his “Mann ki baat” Modi sermonizes students to stay free of exam-pressure. Never mind that. But what stops him from dramatically changing the education system that creates such pressures in the first place? NOTHING! Instead he has ribbon-cutting ministers on education. There is more endorsement for the anti-Hindu RTE Act and no effort to modify it at all. There are reports that many schools have closed down due to the RTE discrimination. But worse are reports of falling standards of education due to RTE which cannot be denied. It will take only ONE STROKE to dramatically reduce the pressure of exams on students. It can be done. There is no need for a million sermons or psychologists who are in this business.

World over, countries like US, UK and others in Europe are waking up to Islamic Expansionist plans while our GOI slumbers over it. Kairana is only one small town. The plans to resettle KPs in Kashmir are being constantly thwarted. But Muslim refugees from Myanmar and Bangladesh are swamping some of our major towns to create a demographic imbalance, including in J&K:
 
Modi calls our Constitution a “Holy Book. Even Americans don’t call their Constitution that. A Constitution that has been savaged by the Congis over the years through hundreds of amendments. If indeed it is, why are Mullahs issuing Fatwas so frequently? Why are some Muslims claiming their Sharia or Quran is above our Constitution? Make a law that warrants a punishment for any Mullah issuing a Fatwa or anyone abusing the Constitution. It cannot be holy unless ALL Indians are taught to respect it.

During his term, ABV too tried to be a Chacha and win accolades from his worst enemies – the Commie media and Sickulars. I see the danger of this happening all over again. We voted Modi to ensure Nehruvian concept of Sickularism and sluggish economic conditions disappear. The Chacha slaves even labeled his economic failures as “Hindu rate of growth”. When criticism is offered, the ModiSlaves rant “Oh, so you want Congress back”? No! The criticism is more to seek ModiSarkar to face realities so that Congress doesn’t return as it did in 2004. That’s the danger of Chacha returning again. And Hindus are not seeking special privileges but that they are treated at par with all others.

  1. This is very hard hitting and factual sequel. Modi must wake up. We can wait till after UP's last polling day. Then he must come in action on NDTV, Kairana, W.Bengal and Kairana - otherwise my staunch support would become damp squib.

  3. Modi has failed us big time. Modi and BJP have to remember that no non Congi govt has won 2 successive terms at the centre, 96-99 being the exception but which saw 3 elections. People forgive and forget the CON party easily and elect them again at centre doesn't matter who their leader is. BJP should also remember they came to power not because of their committed vote base but the 10% incremental votes of the non party affiliated middle class voters. If this 10% simply turn away from BJP or even stay at home BJP will be back to 140 seats. UP results will be an indication whether this shift has happened and if BJP loses UP, Goa & Uttarakhand then the tide has turned for Con party. Punjab is already lost and ground reports from Gujarat suggest Modi & BJP are in for a shock. Modi & Amit Shah need to do course correction fast if they want to win back their disgruntled supporters.

  10. 1) There is no other minister worth his salt to bring in some new vision to ministries like Environment & Forests, Education, Industrial Technology, IT Technology

    2) The right to wait & do is changing the constitution by major amendments like removing special status to J & K state, remove the power from parliament & give it designated Regulators in each regulators, increase Regulators.

    3) Make it mandatory for each political party that positions like President or Chief Minister cannot be held more than TWO times in their life time, to break the backbone of Khangress & its over dependence on old guards. Limit the age to 70-75 maximum to all public institutions, NOT even in boardrooms.

    4) Make every accounts auditor responsible to report SCAMS & accountable for the annual reports endorsed by them, strip their licenses for entire life, with no chance to repeal & his assets confiscated including those belonging to his immediate family for observed SCAMS

    5) Remove religion based quota system to economic criteria

    6) Increase the strength of judges (with a life of 10 years) by adding notable civil personalities to ensure all cases are decided within ONE year maximum. once the back log reduces,(keep a target of 5-7-10 years) the best judges will be absorbed rest dismantled.

    7) Remove the generalists IAS & make it mandatory to have technical specialists to head organizations for no one goes to a general physician for cardiac surgery or critical medical treatment, so industry to be head by Chemical Specialist, Mechanical specialist ...etc.

    8) If BJP can do this, think their name shall be written in golden letters in indian history.

    9) Identify & form military technology teams to absorb more IITians in to satellite, missile, rocket & space station technology, bio-technology. If you set this today, may be 15 years down the lane, the world will send their engineers to get Indian visa. Such should be target.

    9) Currently Modi could have still done much better, seems lack effort & his subordinates are also lacking basic skills. sorry plight of BJP & its supporting organization RSS they are too ordinary people, made to look like big brains, in fact they are kindergarten people.

    9) Speaking on pro-hindu points once in a while appears a gimmick to keep people in their humor, without actually doing anything.

  11. Ravinar has been hard hitting but why is Modi being targeted here. Why is Rajnath Singh, heading the Home Ministry not being questioned. The same Ravinar had earlier lambasted journalists and others who were asking Modi to answer the most ridiculous questions.

    RWs need to ask, if not Modi, who? If they don't see an alternative, the question should be - how we get Modi to take up RW causes? I am sure, it wont be by frothing at the mouth and spewing invectives against Modi and BJP.

    Till date the RSS was fighting its own battle in Kerala. Why does the RSS now need the BJP to fight its battles? I don't think RSS needs any and in no way is the RSS complaining about it (Ravinar has declared that he is not a RSS person). As for the BJP, the BJP cadres themselves should be able to put pressure on the party bosses to act.

    The good things carried out by Modi and the BJP in the last 2.5 years are just discounted when the right wing of the Right Wingers start to complain about RTE, temple control. No patience is what I say.

    1. You are wrong in every sense. Modi will be targeted as he is the PM and if his ministers don't do their job it will ultimately reflect on the PM only. Alternative to Modi ? No need to worry on that as someone will come up like Modi did.
      Regarding RSS fighting it's own battle; Yes they did because there was no one to support them. Now that there is a BJP govt it is natural they expect some support from the powers to be. BJP cannot expect RSS to work for them during elections to mobilise votes and then to forget them when they need some support.

      Delete
    2. The alternative to Modi turns out to be Modi, then what?

      Rather than getting the change from the person at helm, we want to change the person itself. This is nothing but impatience. And impractical, like waiting for the knight in white shining armour.

      As for RSS working for BJP, let me assure you that RSS has made it clear that it will support any party which furthers RSS' agenda. So it is not tied to BJP. RSS has, in the past, worked against Modi in Gujarat. If RSS is expecting BJP to support it, they should have patience. Furthermore, what is to say that no action is being taken. I have a strong hunch that it is being kept under wraps. Just like the Ghar Wapsi program. Making every Hindu cause explicit, will have the expected backlash.

      For me, the squeezing of NGOs has been the biggest step taken in reining in anti-Hindu activists. They are feeling the heat. But the RW wants it to be done in broad daylight. I remember seeing one person in RSS Shakha displaying 'Ab Hindu hee bolega'. I asked him why should others not speak. He replied that 'others' have been speaking for a long time and now only 'Hindus' will speak. Its living like living in a delusional world. Wont happen. The Hindus (the right wing economic variety) themselves will not let it happen.

      Put pressure on other ministers. Question them. Let Modi do what he has to be do....give the vision, frame policies for the next 25 years. The process and procedures should be handled by the portfolio ministers.

    2. This is the dilemma Modi Sarkar is suffering from in going after so many corrupt politicians. Our justice system which is based on "If hundred criminals go free, that is OK, but one innocent should not be punished" will free many many criminals (like the Maran brothers lately). If the Modi Sarakr is not convinced about the proof "Beyond The Reasonable Doubt" for the corruption crime of Chiddu, Vadra etc. it should not go after them, because a clean chit will make them famous. So just people's guts feelings about their corruption is more beneficial.

  14. Barring the point of modi's real fear being tarred with 2002, I agree with all other points.
    Looks to me like Modi is trying to cultivate some media friendly statesman like image, and took his SM popularity for granted. He should now realise it doesn't work that way and he cannot maintain his existing support base by brushing other cultural issues under a statesmanship rug.
    Regarding RTE: the fear of schools closing is very real, and this is a shocker from Bangalore in Jan 2017, which could have been an example highlighted on this article http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp-national/tp-karnataka/RTE-quota-Schools-told-to-fill-up-extra-10-p.c.-seats-to-clear-%E2%80%98backlog%E2%80%99/article17100077.ece

    If it were so, how come the learned and advanced civilization of India crumbled at the hands of barbaric, intellectually barren invaders? Simply because they did not keep 'self-interest' above all and neglected on self-defence.

  23. The key phrase in the beginning of the article is about ABV government is ABV government...ignored its key constituents..and that is why his government lost despite good work. So what did the so called "Key Constituents" got? Ten years of corrupt Congress Raj? Let us learn from that. We will lose big if we continue to have mentality of..I will die but will make you a rand (widow) towards BJP government because it did not do everything we wanted.

    As far as accused criminals in BJP leadership is concerned, we have to ask do we consider a person innocent until proven guilty or not? Do we want to change justice philosophy of "hundred criminals go free is OK, but one innocent should not be punished"? How many people in India, some even in the BJP considered Modi criminal, Amit Shah criminal? Should we have given them chance? If we want to be considered a civilized country, we will have to live with many many criminals go free (like Maran brothers lately) because it is extremely difficult to prove crime "Beyond Reasonable Doubt". Rich people can hire good lawyers who has to create a little doubt in the case. I will be surprise, if Dr. Swamy will be successful in NH case, however strong it looks. But that the life we have not only accepted, but are proud to call ourselves civilized.

  30. 1) "If that were true, then developed countries like US, UK or Germany wouldn’t be facing so much strife." - this is a wrong comparison. All three are much more advanced nations at least in terms of physical infrastructure, social indicators, judicial system etc. It is true that they have now come the full cycle where color (in the US) or religion (in UK/Germany) are coming to the fore but they enjoyed many years of prosperity before then.

    2)"Even Christian Missionary fraudulent-conversions merrily continue with no action." It was reported only a couple of days ago that Compassion International, one of the largest conversion missionaries in India, is shutting down its India operations. This is only because of increased regulation and compliance demanded by Modi government.

    Ravinar - I agree with many of your points (viz. RTE, Kerala/WB situation, going after tainted politicos etc.) but just like Modi is mistaken in thinking development-based agenda alone is enough for re-election, we are also making a mistake by judging him only through a Hinduism-based agenda. By any yardstick (corruption, foreign policy, economy etc.), Modi is already by and far the most visionary and hardworking PM we have ever had. Criticize by all means, as you have done very well here, but it is important for us to have a balanced perspective. There is no magic wand to fix all issues and undo the 1100+ years of misrule that Bharat has seen (via Mughals, British, and finally the Congress).

  31. I hope my comment is not deleted
    Pm Modi's only agenda is development
    If you look at the basic education system of India, nothing is taught about Hinduism or its values or its mythology, just nothing. Because we are secular. Pm modi does not need to do anything but simply show some courage and bring Hindu cultural values into the educationional curriculum. AT LEAST this much I expected from him when he became the prime minister of India. NOW if he could do this Hindus or their culture would be recognized in the mainstream and would continue to endure despite damage of 1000 year onslaught by foreign cultural incursions.
    He is not doing this. His goal is to replace all religion with secularism or secular humanism in school or colleges because that is what Hindus follows now a days. So why would any ranting by anyone in social media would work for Hindus, they are helpless because they think govt would protect their religion, but is that possible???
