NEW DELHI: Former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi used Twitter to target several senior leaders, including finance minister Arun Jaitley, former BCCI president N Srinivasan and the Congress party.

His main accusation was that the leaders regularly approached him for favours in times of need.

Modi further used the micro-blogging site to call Arun Jaitley a “Congressman at heart”.
He also tweeted a picture of Jaitley with Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, his sister Priyanka and her husband Robert Vadra to give an evidence of his closeness with Nehru-Gandhis.

He challenged Jaitley to make his phone records public, and alleged that he was working with Srinivasan.

Threatening a “big expose”, Modi said, “This is true that crores of rupees are booked by BCCI for members’ TA/DA. Best part is they take this in cash. Hope Arun Jaitley, Anurag Thakur and Rajiv Shukla have shown this in their returns… Media, ED and income tax must ask Taj Hotels to provide data of all politicians who have stayed with them (sic).”, reported a national daily.

In what looked like an effort to put the blame of financial irregularities on the BCCI governing council, Modi said, “Facts show all decisions made by treasury run by Srini (Srinivasan) on advice of legal counsel Arun (Jaitley). So poor is the knowledge of all that the notices to the entire BCCI governing council while I am the only witness who gave ED the material (sic).”

He challenged DGCA to disclose the passenger manifest and expressed the desire to know if Congress MPs had sought to place their sons in IPL

In an indirect attack on former finance minister P Chidambaram, Modi alleged that he and his son had sought favours from him.

“I have records for each and every ticket, seat wise — what value it was and who paid for it, in cash or through cheque or free,” he reportedly said.

“I have my hands tied behind my back and mouth gagged and proof taken away. Best part is, I’ve not been charged by any court or any agency; only by media.”, said Modi, evidently defending himself.

“I did not start this war. But I am master of the art of war, so don’t blame me for collateral damage, that’s just what war does (sic),” he tweeted.

Awakened to The Congress’s Blatant Support to Anti-Nation Forces

This time from foreign soil, Germany, Rahul Gandhi has spoken out his mind

Sometimes I feel too confused that what makes a leader speak so badly about the country. Still more confusing is that the same leader is projected as the only fittest in the country to be the Prime Minister.

This time from foreign soil, Germany, Rahul Gandhi has spoken out his mind. With gay abandon he claimed the lack of employment is the cause behind the rise of ISIS. If we analyze such statement objectively, we see that the unprecedented danger is looming large around this country not because of the citizens but because of the irresponsible leaders.

Is it not too shocking that we tolerate a bunch of leaders all through who, with impunity, tramples upon prudence and embrace the fickleness by speaking with such rashness? The ridiculous ranting is what Rahul Gandhi is good at. How many immature gaffes he has committed in last one year. One finds it too sickening to see people defending what Rahul utters out? Again, to his party’s sycophants, each word spoken out by him is worth its weight in gold.

Could any conscious people come across the board to evaluate what will be the likely repercussion when the projected leader goes to the extent to connect the unemployment of youth with ISIS? What do you say — if a certain father harps on that his children will be dagger-wielding murderers if they will not get jobs? What message does it send out? Will such ideas not “viciously affect” the thought process of the children in future? One wonders how the constitution allows the leaders to speak out such dangerous language. Will it not encourage the treasonous activities within the country leading to the decline of the security and sovereignty of the nation?

Rahul Gandhi
Rahul Gandhi.

Despite the height of stupidity, Rahul Gandhi is capable to earn more admirers then criticizers. Is it a pointer to the fact that one man’s loss of sense should lead to the “loss of sense” of other intellectuals? Or do we love an “individual” from a particular family more than our own “country”? On what ground is an “individual” more respect-worthy than the “party”, country and its constitutional ethos? This is in fact a very ominous trend which this country is witnessing now.

True, our Indian polity needs a strong opposition. People do not disagree at all that Congress should not be the one. Yes, this party can alone match well with the rival BJP. But sadly, the party is failing when Rahul started to become more vocal. The party with so smaller number of MPs has not yet “acknowledged” that its rapid decline now is because it continues to sing a hymn to one family only. The conscious Congress party leaders should come down to the ground and critically assess the people’s opinions and their concerns. They all have been intensely disillusioned by the dynasty politics.

Has this “family” not pleasantly ignored a very learned and seasoned leader Pranab Mukherjee by reducing him to just a rubber stamp?  Are Sachin Pilot, Ghulam Nabi Azad, C. P. Joshi, Ashok Gehlot, Jyotiraditya, Scindia, Priya Dutt, less Indian? If BJP can groom Kiren Rijiju why can’t Congress groom the astute leader of the northeast like Gaurav Gogoi or Vincent Pala or Mukul Sangma ? No exaggeration, Sachin Pilot could diplomatically handle the political situation and articulate the party policies far more maturely than entire Gandhi family members put together.

Enough is enough. People now anxiously await the REVIVAL of political parties with vibrant faces who genuinely love the country. We have seen enough of the anti-nation activities incited by the Gandhi family.  It’s totally wrong to be the puppets of a wrong family and spell doom for the nation. PM Modi rightly says that service to the country is far more important than the service to the family.

One response to “Awakened to The Congress’s Blatant Support to Anti-Nation Forces”

  1. During the UPA/Congress government there had been numerous terrorist attacks, Mumbai trains, Zaveri Bazar, 26-11, plus the attacks in Ahmedabad, Pune etc. Was this situation because the terrorists could not find jobs during their rule? Compared to that there are very few terrorist attacks in India in last four years. So the terrorists must be gainfully employed in last four years !
