TiTs & BiTs (012)
On Gujarat elections:
And I watched the heated debate on the TV, yestrday, between the political and media personalities on the merits and demerits of the decision of the Election Commission to defer Gujarat elections until next December. Of all, I enjoyed the bit by our ex-union minister of Law & Judiciary, Mr. Arun Jaitley. In all this, the constitutional provisions that makes it mandatory for Gujarat to have its elections in October as planned by the architect of Gujaratís devastation Mr. Modi have been given too much importance. But no one is talking about the constitutional provisions that makes it mandatory for the governments to safe-guard the welfare and the well being of its citizens. Those who talk in favour of Gujarat elections should be arrested and sent to jail forthwith, including the slick Mr. Arun Jaitley. This is a gross condoning of the murder and maiming of thousands. The decision of the Election Commission is to be commended a thousand times. Gujarat has shown that it does not deserve democracy and freedom and as such should be put under Presidentís rule permanently. Why the hell not??
On Fr. Agnel Polytechnic studentís hunger strike/Dharna:
And a lot has been said of the striking students of Agnel Polytechnic. And as expected, Manohar Parrikar is expected to take a decision soon and end the stalemate. And of-course, the day will be Manohar Parrikarís, just like the other times when he created the problems and solved them with much ado and a lot of expense to the exchequer. If anyone has forgotten, these are the Miramar Beach privatization , Campal trees, Massano de Amorim Heritage building, etc. etc. If one wants to hog the limelight, one must create problems and solve them, showing deep concern and understanding, to the satisfaction of all. This is the surest way of keeping oneself in the chair. And I am very sure we are not going to hear any more about the letters sent to the two ministers from the Chief Ministerís office on the Chief Ministerís letter-heads. This sure is a creation of a one way problem which does not warrant a solution.
On Independence Day Celebrations:
And it is ironic that the celebration at the Secretariat, Panjim, of the day of the freedom of the nation was not free for the people to witness. Who was being protected from whom with this sorry police bandobost ?? And to imagine that people are crazy enough to waste their precious time to go to watch a bunch of hypocrites and self seekers bowing to the sacred flag, who would otherwise sell the same along with the flag post if it fetched a decent sum.
On Alabhya Housing Co-Operative Society of Tivim Scam:
And it is a stupendously surprising revelation that l.43 crore rupees were released as loans to this housing co-operative society in the recent scam without the slightest of caution or preoccupation by the sanctioning authority. Why not? The commission on that 1.43 crore rupess must have been very lucrative. Come to think of it, that this Housing Co-operative is based in Tivim which has been the stronghold of the now enterprising MLA of Aldona and who has been making much of the noise in the assembly only shows that the commission hasínt reached the right pockets. Wonder if this is not another reverse case of creating a solution and pointing to the problem.
