The Nation Wants to Know
Mr Prime Minister,
We voted you to power three years ago with a huge majority in the Lok Sabha with a lot of realistic expectations.
[dropcap color=”#008040″ boxed=”yes” boxed_radius=”8px” class=”” id=””]B[/dropcap]ut most certainly we did not back you to see the Pakistani army cross the LoC, behead our soldiers and retreat with impunity. It is a matter of utter shame and humiliation to see this happening repeatedly. And all that your govt is saying is that “we will respond at a time of our choice.” We are sick and tired of this worn-out statement. It means nothing. We did have a surgical strike. But after that what? Zilch. Pro-Pak elements continue to pelt stones at our soldiers and shout into their ears “you Indian dogs go back.” Can there be anything more humiliating to a jawan than to be told to vacate his own motherland? A jawan complained of the pathetic quality of food. And what was the response of your govt? A so-called inquiry and the poor jawan is sacked!! No action against officials responsible for the poor quality of food being served to those guarding our borders. The Nation Wants to Know.
The BJP from the time of Shyama Prasad Mookherji has been demanding the scrapping of this anti-national Article. What is stopping you from doing that?
You are not even willing to scrap the Most Favoured Nation status which the Congress govt had conferred on Pakistan 20 yrs ago. What is the earthly reason for not doing this? Do you need majority in the Rajya Sabha for this or a nod from the Supreme Court? The Nation Wants to Know. You boasted of a 56″ chest. Where has it gone?The Nation Wants to Know.
Your Kashmir policy is a comprehensive disaster. The decision to join hands with Mehbooba Mufti is a Himalayan blunder. She is ordering the registration of FIRs against the army for tying a pro-Pakistani stone pelter to a jeep so that their men can escape from the cul de sac where they are trapped. Imagine FIR against the army for protecting their men? The Nation Wants to Know.
Never in the past has Pakistan had a free run of South Kashmir as it is having now. The Hizbul, which is a proxy of the ISI, is killing policemen, burning schools etc at will. The Nation Wants to Know why you are not hitting back. Why not a single Kashmiri Pandit has been resettled in the Valley in the last three years?
[dropcap color=”#008040″ boxed=”yes” boxed_radius=”8px” class=”” id=””]O[/dropcap]ne of the prime reasons for the Kashmir crisis is our own ambiguity vis a vis J & K being an integral part of our nation. Article 370 effectively places a question mark over the status of J & K being a part of India. The BJP from the time of Shyama Prasad Mookherji has been demanding the scrapping of this anti-national Article. What is stopping you from doing that? The Nation Wants to Know.
How is Mr. Jaitley going to stand up to Pakistan?
Mr Prime Minister the nation wants to know when you will teach Islamabad a lesson of its life? When will we have a full-fledged defence minister?
Can Arun Jaitley, who is reluctant to arrest Karthi Chidambaram despite a mass of unimpeachable evidence of amassing wealth, be expected to tackle Pakistan as defence minister? How is Mr. Jaitley going to stand up to Pakistan? The Nation Wants to Know.
And it is only a matter of days before Kulbhushan Yadav is hanged. If that happens I am certain that Rajnath Singh will say “we will respond at a time of our choice.” Maybe he is already ready with his statement.
Mr. Prime Minister, please demonstrate that you are different from Manmohan Singh. Put Pakistan in its place.
