INDIAN PRIME MINISTERS



India has had a number of Prime Ministers. Some were genuinely elected, some were accidental and some were thrusted upon India. India being a strong and a vibrant democracy accepted them all and gave its verdict during next elections.

Jawahar Lal Nehru… Kashmir....China (1962) Gandhis won’t allow him to be forgotten. It’s about very survival of congress.

Gulzari Lal Nanda... Only one who was sworn in three times. Neither congress nor history has been kind to him. He has been forgotten

Indira Gandhi...Of Emergency  fame. Millions of Rs from taxpayer’s money has been spent on her death and birth anniversary to keep her alive... Gandhis won’t ever allow her to be forgotten.

Morarji Bhai Desai… He might be remembered with reference to his son Kanti Bhai. He has been forgotten.

Lal Bahadur Shatri...He was considered to be the most honest PM India ever had. He will always be remembered for his decision and Military victory over Pakistan. Allegedly, he died in debts. He has been forgotten.

Rajeev Gandhi…Shah Bano, 1984, Bofors and coterie.… Gandhis won’t allow him to be forgotten since Sonia is identified with Rajeev. Millions of tax payer’s money has been spent on his birth and death anniversary. Gandhis and Sonia can survive politically only with his name tag.

V P Singh... He is assumed to be a product of false propaganda. He has been forgotten.

 P V Narsimhan Roan...Man who steered economic reforms though Man Mohan Singh got the credit and India prospered. Even his dead body (non Gandhi) was not allowed to be brought and kept in congress office is a separate issue…He has been forgotten.

I K Gujral… He just filled in the seat temporarily...He was never remembered. He has been forgotten.

H S Devegowda….Don’t ask, Devegowda who? He has been forgotten.

Chandrashekhar.. It was an easy entry and an exit. He has been forgotten.

Man Mohan Singh…. What can I say....Will History remember him? May be only for scams during his rule? He himself might like to be forgotten.

Narendra Damodardas Modi...Wait and watch .A nationalist with a mission. Will never be forgotten

India has had all these great men and woman as PMs. But ,Bharat Ratna has been awarded only to Nehru- Gandhi family by Nehru –Gandhi itself. It sounds so convenient. It would appear all other PMs were not worthy of Bharat Ratna.

Let us CHANGE INDIA for INDIA OF TOMORROW.

DECADE 2004-2014

                          
 ‘IT IS THE WINNING SIDE WHICH LIVES TO WRITE HISTORY”

Who won in 2014? BJP or India? 

After her sacrifice (?), Sonia appointed honest man as PM and started rule by Proxy. Allegedly, important files were sent to High Command for approval and “Deals” were fixed. Governance took the hit as no MP /minister would consult the PM on major issues .Above all, NAC (National Advisory Council) was formed by Sonia from amongst handpicked members with Sonia as the chairperson which ruled without responsibility but with full authority. Why did Man Mohan Singh accept humiliation is a mystery?

In 1975, media bent backwards out of fear. This time, it was greed. Media was manipulated. The power of Govt Ads and its monetary value is unprecedented. Discretionary quota was used to allot accommodation and positions to media bigwigs with free overseas trips aboard PM’s flight, VIP treatment and with all perks that come with PM’s entourage. Media became powerful that it started even to brokerage appointment of ministers.”I am at 7RCR” announced a TV news anchor. Each wanted to get close to power so as to become powerful. If you don’t kill your enemy, it will kill you. Media wasn’t touched.

NGOs were given licenses under FCRA and same NGOs/funds were surreptitiously used against political opponents and also allegedly for anti national activities. Some NGOs were owned by serving Babus and senior Advocates of SC. Over 10,000 NGO licenses have since been cancelled.

National security was compromised. When Chinese intruded,the then MEA termed it as ACNE. Case of Ishrat Jahan is in news with not much comfort. How could original files go missing from ministry? Col Purohit and Sadhvi Pragya are live examples of the strategy. Illegal immigration of Muslims was ignored and missionaries were issued Visas who indulged in mass conversions. A drive through Punjab will see sudden spurt of Churches in areas where never has ever been a Christian. Phrase “Saffron Terror” was coined to appease minorities. Hindus were advised on Colorless Holi, Cracker less Diwali and no Rakhi, but never a Bloodless Eid was spoken about. Assam,WB,Kerala demographics were allowed to change. Roland Reagan had said “A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation” Efforts were at full throttle to divide Hindus. Had they succeeded in passing CVB (Communal Violence Bill), half Hindu population would have been on jail. Had PrithviRaj Chauhan killed Mohd Ghori, no such thing would have happened.

The then PM said “Minorities have the first charge over natural resources”. While he was stating this, under his nose, due to “Coalition compulsions”, loot of natural resources was on. Be it Spectrum, Coal, Thorium, Land grab, CWG. No amount of enquiry would have helped. I once wrote this phrase from Twitter The corrupt accuse corrupt of being corrupt and the corrupt investigate the corrupt and absolve the corrupt of being corrupt”

Congress infiltrated into Police, CBI, judiciary and Babudom. Those who played ball, had post retirement positions ready and those who didn’t had their files ready for CBI and IT .Babus continued to live in Colonial days with a game of Golf during working hours and lunch at Delhi Gymkhana

Someday, some historian will write about this disastrous decade for next generation never to make the mistakes we made.

Let us CHANGE INDIA for INDIA OF TOMORROW.
