Year 2013, when another (successful) tenure of Congress rule in India is about to come to an end, now is the time to do the honors for the achievements done by the UPA in the past five years. Just like at the end of every year a recap of most promising events of that year is done, this would be something similar to that but highlighting only Congress, so it can be termed more as of Congress’s timeline on the occasion of finally making it to 5 years stay in the nation. Like I said, it is a recap but no set chronological order is there because of course it’s difficult to pen down ideas and search Google for the dates at the same time. So here we go:
- Let’s start with the first thing that comes to one’s mind when we hear the word Congress- no, no not Sonia Gandhi, she is the second; what I am talking about is “scams.” In our education system practical knowledge is what is appreciated. It is even remarked that if you see something practically happening you won’t forget it for your entire life. I never realized that when I was told Con is the opposite of Pro, but with those scams I now can never forget “CON”gress. How apt!!!
- Now the second, Mrs. G. Ever since she came into power (everyone says that) these scams have shown a pattern. CWG, 2G, 3G, CoalG this is really a great way to tell a person what rhyming scheme is all about.
- One more thing is that we have been mocking Mr. Digvijay Singh for his entire press statements for saying, “There is involvement of foreign hand in this” but that guy was actually saying the truth- Italy is a foreign nation. Nobody paid him any attention, not even his party members, ohh sorry even party’s symbol has embracing of a foreign hand.
- Let’s leave these apart; a terrorist who killed so many masses 4 years ago was hanged till death a few days ago!!! The entire nation was expecting that he is being kept alive for a premier of Dabangg-2 in his lockup while eating Biryani. Some were even commenting that he is telling them safer accounts than Swiss to keep all the money that is why he is being kept alive.
These are not the only things, these are very few things but this is not to bash Congress or you. Everywhere in the world Dr. Manmohan Singh is the PM of India, who is responsible of for the growth of India because of his policy introduction in 1991. He rowed India’s economic boat through a very severe financial storm to make it stand amongst the top nations of the world with a tremendous GDP. But now the nation talks about him being silent, being called by various names and yet he doesn’t show any reaction. The day I read about the policies I had a respect for this man and thought him to be a man of dignity, so what has happened to that person or was my notion like everybody else’s; wrong? India is now standing at a very critical doorstep financially- inflation is high, FDI has been given tremendous leverage. It is not that these things are not in your notice.
You are an Economics guru and are fully aware of the repercussions that might follow. So how this decision can be turned into good for our nation is in your hands. India needs an experienced leader but are you the same Manmohan Singh now who helped India at its time of distress in 1991. The nation is calling! The nation is asking! It is now upto you whether to answer this in a way it deserves or is this time for AAM Aadmi to take a lead.
