Stop politics and work for the country’s progress
Congress has come back to power this time with the help of alliance partners, defeating cock-sure BJP, the Hindutwawadi Nationalist Party. Atal Behari had tried his level best to change the communal face of the party, at the fag end of the campaign, even though he refused to apologize for the criminal act of Modi and foul-mouthed Togadia. He even came climbed down from Hindutwa to Bharatiyata. Indians are traditionally a people believing in human brotherhood whether RSS-VHP-Bajrang Dal would like it or not. Without the help of minorities and dalits nobody can come to power in India. Now that we have got an able, clean PM in Manmohan, the govt. should get down to work immediately and show the results. People want food, jobs, shelter and clothing along with roads, water, health, education, which are the prime responsibilities of any democratic govt. As suggested by Palaniyappan Chidambaran, the profit making Cos should be retained for continuous inflow of money to govt. treasury and to disinvest only unprofitable Cos. People will not tolerate corruption, lethargy and intrigues, any more. Govt should order a full enquiry on Gujarat riots in view of the findings of Gujarat Sangharsh Samiti which has come to the conclusion that Godhra train fire emanated from electrical/mechanical fault and not by Muslims. Modi and Co. should be proceeded against in view of Supreme Court
