Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi---Mahatma Gandhi---was the real hero who fought for us,for India for our freedom. He is the one who sacrificed his life for the nation.No one from his family-his children-his grand children-has ever claimed any position of power,directly or indirectly,in exchange for the sacrifice for the country.No one from his family came into politics just because the head of their family had sacrificed his life for the country.
Subhash Chandra Bose, was a true son of India, a dedicated freedom fighter and a soldier.His sacrifice for the freedom of the country has never been questionable.For reasons whatever,details of his alleged death have remained a mystery.There was a theory that he did not actually die in the air crash.His only daughter-Anita Bose Pfaff--has never claimed publicity, power or political space in Indian politics just because her father had made sacrifices for the country.
Sardar Vallabhai Patel was the iron man of India.If one goes by history books,had Nehru listened to him, J&K would have had a different scene.Sardar Patel's next of kin have been leading a quiet retired life away from political climate.None of his children,grand children have claimed political power, political space or even publicity.They have never complained on occasions when Sardar's birth or death anniversary has been forgotten by those holding power.
Lal Bahadur Shastri’s short tenure has been one of pride for all Indians.His children,though in politics, haven’t been fighting for position.
Nehru-Gandhis have been on the Indian political scene since independence and have been in power on their own for almost45 yrs,besides having led a coalition Govt for almost 7 yrs.
Historicaly,Nehru - Gandhis at different stages have suffered humiliation.
First, when Nehru miscalculated his friendship with Chinese resulting into a miserable defeat for India in'62.He was a sensitive person and it is common knowledge as to how he took his decision and defeat to heart.Consequences were there to see.
Second, When Indira Gandhi declared internal emergency in the country subsequent to Allahabad High court judgment unseating her.Consequences were there to see.
Third, When Rajeev Gandhi got caught into alleged Bofors corruption scandal. Consequences were there to see.
Dr Man Mohan Singh is the officially appointed PM of the country.Without getting into futile discussion, it is common knowledge that it is Sonia Gandhi and to some extent Rahul Gandhi who controls policy making and purse strings.It is obvious as who are congress members loyal to.
In the recent past, there have been allegations against congress on corruption, lack of governance, minority appeasement, regionalism, misuse of Govt machinery etc. Law will take its own course is a line no sane person buys any more.
Perhaps, it is time for congress to step aside for some time,get its act,organization together,let alleged charges of corruption be settled and come back to the national scene with full majority rather than come to power on clutches of opportunistic coalition partners.(Indira Gandhi waited till ’80)
It won't only benefit congress, it will benefit nation at large.
But, it is eventually up to Congress party to decide
RAAJ SIRF RAAJA HI KAR SAKTA HAI.
let us CHANGE INDIA for INDIA OF TOMORROW.
