India witnessed a moment of sheer amazement. Shri Janardan Mishra, BJP leader and Madhya Pradhesh minister as part of a routine school inspection found a toilet in a school in his Rewa district clogged learnt that children could not use it or shower. Instead of shouting instructions, he immediately got down on his knees and cleaned the toilet with his bare hands removing the clogged waste and soil. Not just that, as the young boys had not had a bath, he even helped some boys to have a bath and clipped some nails. Shri Mishra is a fan on PM Modi and a die hard believer in “Swacch Bharat“.
Following this, he went on to twitter and “ASKED PEOPLE TO TAKE THE OATH TO PROMOTE CLEANLINESS“.
Repeating this action may be difficult for many, but can we at least take the cleanliness oath at all times and all places -> and try to live by it? WHILE THIS SOUNDS LIKE BOLLYWOOD BUT ACTUALLY IT HAPPENED IN THE REAL INDIA.

Can you imagine – suddenly western countries, who have enough problems of their own, have started worrying about the collapse and growing irrelevance of our opposition parties. They were champions of the Congress for decades and were really excited about the AAP, but were almost always unfairly and highly critical of the BJP. Why – because BJP represents the dominant majority, are nationalist, want to promote development and reduce corruption. Our opposition is collapsing because – they remain highly corrupt, don’t believe in development, believe in divide and conquer and most importantly want to promote minorities at the great expense of the majority. Added to this, they present no new ideas. So old ideas, old leaders, dynastic and corrupt politics will not work with an inspirational India with growing confidence and impatience, with a youth population that exceeds 65%. So no surprise or tears for opposition parties becoming irrelevant or disappearing…

BJP win of 312 and allies of 13 & its allies for a total of 325 seats won out of 403 seats or nearly 81% of the seats which is the biggest victory in the largest state in India. A big factor was a massive Hindu consolidation with very small proportion of Muslim votes. This is a vote for vikas, development for all, against minority (read appeasement) at the cost of the majority community and against goondaism. This victory is far bigger than Indira Gandhi in the pre-divided Uttar Pradesh, and much bigger than the 1990s mandir consolidation. Congratulations to the party!!! We may be moving past caste calculations to performance and messages … another positive trend.

Cricketer and comedian who is also a politician with little in way of accomplishments, does a Ghar Wapsi with his wife who is also a politician. He says he was born a Congressman. But per news reports, he and his wife “almost” joined AAP. Sidhu seems really critical of the Akalis, and if one were to guess is it could be personal. But he was with BJP all these years. Okay – but what was he doing all these years? And, one can only wait and wonder where he may float next?

After the appointment of the new Army Chief, leaders of some opposition parties have questioned the Government’s decision as seniority principle was bypassed, which by the way has happened in the past under other governments. One critic who is close to the Congress party even went on to suggest that one person had been bypassed as he belonged to the minority community. Luckily others spoke in favor of the government. The government appointment seems to be based on the current and future threats – the biggest of which is in J&K and the Pakistan border. Lt. General Bipin Rawat was appointment as he has enormous experience as an infantry officer, in counter-terrorism, and along Line of Control. This is the need of hour given the ongoing terror issues in J&K and army deployment in J&K and Line of Control.

Political commentators thoughts demonetization would backfire on the ruling party. Instead during the recent local and panchayat level elections in Maharashtra and Gujarat, BJP made a clean sweep in both states in a big way. There were always many issues, drought, regional and community agitations such as Marathwada and Patildars. The big recent programme and potential public issue was the demonetization. Opposition parties are leading agitations, bandhs and stalling parliament. But at the ground level voters have spoken in a big and convincingly way about how they see it. So would the opposition listen and respect the verdict?

Arvind Kejriwal who makes ridiculous statements most of the time, possibly to stay in the media limelight, but the most recent statement went over the top. He said that “the BJP does not belong to anyone. They don’t even belong to their father. BJP have the greed of power and money, and if needed they will even sell their father”. What a thing to say – pretty shocking right? So if the things like this, does Arvind Kejriwal also feel that ‘Kejriwal will sell his father’ if he has to?

India’s top news anchor Arnab Goswami is facing life threats from Pakistani supported jihadi groups. Arnab Goswami is a courageous face of TV anchors who is not afraid to ask difficult questions or put those with anti-national views on the spot. This happened recently with Kanhaiya Kumar of JNU, Zakir Nair, our secular politicians or some intellectuals who were opposing the surgical strikes. In light of the threat perception, India government will provide Arnab “Y” level security initially which could be upgraded based on further threat perceptions.

After being an MP for over 10 years, Rahul Gandhi is taking out a 2,500 kilometers padyatra to get to know farmers. Subramanian Swamy noted that Rahul Gandhi knows more about night clubs in France and England than about our farmers. He goes to visit them most of the time, and then once in a while visits India to do some publicity event like padyatra or other thing.

Looks like Arvind Kejriwal, who by the way is the Delhi Chief Minister, will say and/or do almost anything to gain publicity. His latest attack – he says “PM Modi can even have me murdered”. This comes after Ms. Soni, the Aam Aadmi Party activist who committed suicide had said that she was “asked to make compromises” with her body. It is also alleged that “She was told you should stop loving your body so much and compromise and unless you do that you will not rise in the party”. The big question is if the AAP leadership is a party to all these developments?

PM only said the following to the retiring Congress Rajya Sabha members, “I wish the GST would have been passed during your tenure in the Rajya Sabha. People in your states would have benefited from it.” And later, “Wherever you go, whatever you do, please keep sending your ideas and work for the betterment of your state. I would like to thank you on behalf of the government for your valued contribution, and wish you the best for the future.” Here is NDTV’s original headline, “PM Narendra Modi’s GST Barb To Retiring Rajya Sabha Members”. DEAR READERS, HOW DO YOU SEE THE HEADLINE VERSUS WHAT WAS ACTUALLY SAID?

Subramanian Swamy has extracted the papers from the UK company law authorities which show that Rahul Gandhi had called himself “British” on the annual returns of UK-based “Backops Limited” in 2005 and 2006. Being an MP, this is a really serious matter – so now the Parliament Ethics Panel of the Lok Sabha has asked Rahul to respond on whether he is Indian or British. It is a shock that a congress leader has created these doubts.

Congress publication blames Nehru for the current problems in Kashmir, Nepal and Tibet. The article goes on to say that “had Vallabhai Patel been heard (by Nehru) or even better become the first prime minister of India, then, the problems of Kashmir, China, Tibet and Nepal wouldn’t have existed now. Patel opposed Nehru’s move of taking the Kashmir issue to the UNO,”. As regards Sonia Gandhi, the article implies to be a very ambitious person. It states “Sonia Gandhi became a primary member of the Congress in 1997 and became the party’s president in 62 days.” Shortly after, she also made an unsuccessful attempt to form a government at the center.

As we know Indian and Indians are the most peace loving and welcoming people – one could argue this generosity has got them in trouble. The Archbishop of Goa Filipe Neri Ferrao called for better understanding, reconciliation and peace as enshrined in the message of Christmas. He said, “Sadly, we find an increasing dose of intolerance holding sway in our lives. Not only people of different creeds and cultures, but people of the same family drift away from each other because of this intolerance and unforgivingness.” What is the need for such statements when nothing has changed on the ground but a but the government at the center (and maybe a greater imagination of fear)? Are these politically motivated statements?
