Let me first tell you I try my best not to watch news, I watch the sports news and visit CNBC for the status of the sensex. However it is virtually impossible to not see a bit of the news that you don’t want to see and let me tell you that even those small bits are enough to irritate you or immediately spark off something in you that you want to voice about or write about.
Just saw a small snippet where Sharad Pawar stated that Maharashtra public want a Maharashtrian Prime Minister this time.
The moment I hear something like this the Indian in me immediately sparks I don’t want a Maharashtrian or a Punjabi or a Keralite Prime Minister. I want an Indian Prime Minister. Backgrounds shouldn’t matter !!
Pawar chooses to play the choicest region, language card and woo the sentiments of the Marathi’s. Vote for my party is what he is suggesting to all Marathi’s. As the agriculture minister he has already raised the Minimum Support Prices of a lot of agricultural commodities up anywhere from 8% to 40%, this comes in times when the whole world is facing such a huge financial crisis, he has gone about wooing farmers without worrying about the economics of the decision, throwing the trade totally out of place. Who cares about Economics, its Election season after all !! Happy Holi all !
I would like to tell all Marathi’s don’t let him fool you. Ideally we should all be voting for the candidate and not for the party or the party chief. Vote for Mr. Pawar only if you think he is the right candidate and not coz he is Marathi !!
Like Chanakya these politicians will use all Shaam, Daam, Dand & Bhed to woo you, they will try to trick you and fool you.
Also saw on news a dinner invitation from Mayawati to all parties for raising a third front !! This is the same lady who co-erces people to contribute for a gala celebration of her own birthday, and if you dont contribute, be ready to die !!!!
I suddenly again remember the promise I made to my colleague who has been adamantly reminding me all the time, that if Mayawati becomes PM of our country I have to jump off our three storey office building. My days are numbered it seems !! 😦
Remember to choose your candidate wisely. Although its an impossible task to choose a good candidate, we have to take the pain and select the best of the lot that is available. If you still feel disgusted and really don’t like any of the candidate, please use 49-0 option but please don’t let your vote go to waste or be misused.
