अभिव्यक्ति की आज़ादी या देशभक्ति या कुछ और

कुछ लोग कहते है की अगर आपने एक पार्टी के विरोध में कुछ बोला नहीं की आप देशद्रोही हो गए और दूसरी तरफ दूसरे लोग यही बात कहते है अगर आपने एक पार्टी के विरोध में बोला नहीं की आपको भक्त करार दिया जायेगा। जैसे अगर किसी ने आज की तारीख में यह बोल दिया की JNU में देशद्रोही नारे लगे तो बीजेपी वाले लोगो की नज़र में आप देशभक्त होते है या नहीं लेकिन दूसरी तरफ वाले आपको मोदी भक्त या आरएसएस का एजेंट या कट्टर हिंदूवादी या भक्त जरूर कहते नज़र आ जाएंगे। अब इसी का दूसरा पहलु देखते है अगर किसी ने यह कह दिया JNU में जो नारे लगे वह देशद्रोही तो है लेकिन….? तो आपको जो कल तक मोदी भक्त कहते हुए नज़र आ रहे थे आज आपको देश का सच्चा देशभक्त कहता हुआ नज़र आएगा और दूसरी तरफ वाला आपको देशद्रोही, पाकिस्तानी समर्थक, वामपंथी कहता हुआ नज़र आएगा। आखिर आम आदमी जाये तो जाये कहाँ। इसी वजह से बहुत सारे लोग खुल के यह बात कह नहीं पाते है उनके मन में क्या है। तो यही वजह है की कुछ लोग इन झमेलों से अपने आप को दूर रखने की यथासंभव कोशिश कर रहे है।

सबसे ज्यादा तो तरस आता है पढ़े लिखे नौजवानो पर जो की जीवन में किसी ना किसी तरह एक खास राजनितिक आइडियोलॉजी को सपोर्ट करते है, और किसी राजनैतिक आइडियोलॉजी का समर्थन करना गलत नहीं है।

आज की राजनीति दशा और दिशा

माना जाता है की कांग्रेस ने आज़ादी से आज तक जब भी सत्ता में रही उन्होंने बहुत कुछ दिया देश को, इस बात से कोई इंकार नहीं कर सकता लेकिन हम अगर अपने समकक्ष आज़ाद हुए देशो की तुलना अपने देश से करे, अपने कुछ एक परोसी देश को छोड़ के, हम आम आदमी के विकाश में कही पीछे रह गए है। तो हमे उन देशो के साथ हमे ये देखना होगा ही हम ऐसे कैसे पीछे रह गए। क्या हमारे यहाँ इच्छाशक्ति की कमी है नहीं, हमारे यहाँ युवाओं की कमी है नहीं, क्या हमारे यहाँ स्किल्ड युवाओ की कमी है नहीं। फिर ऐसी क्या बात है जो हम पीछे रह गए सिर्फ और सिर्फ राजनितिक दूरदर्शिता जो देश के भविष्य को नहीं सोच के, वे सिर्फ अपने भविष्य को सोच रहे है।

Dance of Democracy 2014

Author never endorse any political party and not supported by any political parties. Views written in this article is his own. Said article never claimed that the views of all 3 parties has been draw in their own manifesto are as the same.

Does Narendra Modi actually have a great Gujarat model, or just well packaged hype? Critics say that Gujarat has grown fast, but some others have grown faster.

Gujarat is the best state in pendency of corruption cases, and in the proportion of non-violent crime. It is close to the top in completion of police investigations. It scores poorly in judicial vacancies and recovery of stolen property.

It’s quality of government spending is high: it has the lowest ratio of administrative GDP to total GDP. Spending is focused on infrastructure rather than staff. Modi’s repeated state election victories show that his approach produces high voter satisfaction. It has large, expanding public sector companies, and substantial taxes on capital and commodities.

It has many subsidies, though fewer than in other states. Still, business thrives in its business-friendly climate. It always take more than six months and several visits (and payments) to ministries for industrial approval. But in Gujarat, the ministry concerned called him the day before his appointment, asking for details of his proposal. Next day, he found the bureaucracy had in advance prepared plans of possible locations for his project, and settled the matter on the spot. This was unthinkable elsewhere, and showed both efficiency and honesty. Corruption has not disappeared in Gujarat, but is muted.

“History will be kinder to me than the contemporary media,” Manmohan Singh told reporters at a press conference earlier this year. Sanjaya Baru’s book ‘The Accidental Prime Minister: The Making and Unmaking of Manmohan Singh’ isn’t a revisionist exercise that will change public opinion about the PM who abdicated. In fact, it only reinforces the image of a ‘puppet PM’. But it does paint a portrait of an earnest, hard-working PM who let his loyalty — “misplaced and unrewarded” — to the Gandhi family get the better of his judgment. Baru, who was media advisor to the PM between 2004 and 2008 written in his book. Later after Baru’s release there was another socking release for Honorable Prime Minister Mr Manmohan Singh that let down his chair and more than his chair the institution on he sat for 10yrs in a row. But in my thought these books saved Mr Manmohan Singh rather than harm his public figure. Because these books says that he has nothing to do so he can say India that I don’t have anything in my hand to do, so whatever has been done in last 10yrs it was the agenda of one family.

History has been made in country a year old party came into force in power, but much hyped government showed that they feel lack of experience in governing the government. But in my opinion it could be better and they can learn if they continue the government instead of leaving the people of Delhi in dilemma. In later Convenor of party said that it was wrong decision to do the same. So we can say that they gradually become experienced in Indian politics. With doing you can’t be experienced. So I can say that “Failure is the pillar of success”, so they must continue with governance to deal with these kind of in-experience

BJP Election Manifesto Vs My Comment

The BJP will initiate the following measures within 100 days of coming to power:

1. Revive the anti-terror mechanism that has been dismantled by the Congress; improve upon POTA to ensure it is more effective as an instrument of deterrence and a tool to prosecute offenders without innocent people being harassed; and, strengthen the operational role of the National Investigating Agency.

2. Give assent to laws drafted by State Governments for dealing with organised crime and terrorism; encourage other State Governments to adopt similar laws.

3. Launch a massive programme to detect, detain and deport illegal immigrants.

4. Completely revamp the internal and external intelligence agencies and review the existing system of coordination, convergence and dissemination of intelligence inputs. A massive exercise will be undertaken to modernise intelligence agencies so that they are better equipped to use technology and cope with the rapidly changing trends and patterns of terrorism at home and abroad. The National Security Council will be made the hub of all sector-related assessments. It will be accountable for real-time intelligence dissemination; intelligence agencies will be held responsible for lapses. Appointments to intelligence agencies will be on merit and not because of political patronage as has been the system during the Congress years.

5. A Digital Security Agency will be set up to deal with cyber warfare, cyber counterterrorism, and cyber security of national digital assets.

6. State Governments will be provided with all assistance to modernise their respective police forces and equip them with the latest weaponry and communications technology.

This will be done on a mission mode approach. The police are the first responders to any crisis situation. Drawing lessons from experience, police forces will be trained and fully equipped to deal with situations similar to that of Mumbai and in meeting the challenge posed by Maoists and insurgents.

7. Border management will be reviewed and improved. Punitive measures will be introduced to block illegal immigration.

8. India’s vast coastline is virtually unprotected. Coastal security will be strengthened for better patrolling of Indian waters and preventing terrorists from taking the sea route to enter India. A National Maritime Authority will be set up to coordinate coastal security.

9. Special courts will be set up for speedy prosecution of those involved with acts of terrorism. Their trial shall be fair and justice will be done to the victims swiftly.

10. Coercive measures, including diplomacy, will be used to deal with countries which promote cross-border terrorism. India will engage with the world in the global war on terror while not compromising on its domestic interests, primarily protecting citizens from the ravages of terrorism.

11. The Centre will facilitate better inter-State coordination and real-time intelligence-sharing, apart from helping States to raise anti-insurgency forces, to face the threat posed by Maoists. The ‘Chhattisgarh Model’ will be used for counter-Maoist operations. At the same time, every effort will be made to address the social and economic issues that make the ground fertile for Left-wing extremism.

12. Any talks with insurgent groups will be conditional and within the framework of the Constitution. The BJP will send out a simple message, loud and clear, to terrorists and their sponsors: They will have to pay a heavy price for each innocent life lost. Retribution will be swift and exemplary. The authority of the state, which has been diminished by the Congress in pursuit of vote-bank politics, shall be restored.

My comment : 12 things BJP will do in 100 days while they can’t did most of those in their 5 yrs of governance. Hope they will try at least when they will come in power again.

National Identity Cards for All

The BJP will launch an innovative programme to establish a countrywide system of multi-purpose national identity cards so as to ensure national security, correct welfare delivery, accurate tax collection, financial inclusion and voter registration. Voter identity cards, PAN cards, passports, ration cards and BPL cards are already in use though not all with photo identity. The NDA proposes to make it incumbent for every Indian to have a National Identity Card. The programme will be completed in three years. The National Identity Card will contain enough memory and processing capabilities to run multiple applications. Through it the NDA will ensure efficient welfare delivery and tax collection. The card will also be linked to a bank account. All welfare payments, including widow and old age pensions, through the wide range of schemes such as Mother and Child support/ Kisan Credit, Students Assistance and Micro-Credit will be channelised through the National Identity Card. The card will make it possible for individuals to save and borrow money; for farmers to get bank credit, also establish accurate land titles data. The National Identity Card will also strengthen national security by ensuring accurate citizen identity, thus tracking illegal immigration. All financial transactions, purchase of property and access to public services will be possible only on the basis of the National Identity Card which will be made forgery and hacking resistant.

My Comment: National Identity Cards for all: When the most of people of our country didn’t have the Election Card or Voter ID Card itself. Hope they will try again to show off the lollypop to most of population of India where maximum number of people even doesn’t know what is the Election Card or Voter ID Card.

Food security: We will make India hunger-free

The BJP views food security as integral to national security. The spectre of a looming food crisis haunts the developing world as never before. With the agriculture sector suffering on account of the Congress’ gross negligence, India faces a real threat of food scarcity. With India becoming a net importer of food under Congress rule, there is genuine concern about food security. Three factors have contributed to increasing food scarcity and the resultant sense of growing insecurity among the masses. First, the real income of workers and farmers has not kept pace with the rising cost of food, thus reducing their purchasing power. Second, the public distribution system has been severely crippled by the Congress-led Government which has been more interested in importing food grains and selling them at a high price than in securing the needs of the people. Third, with an additional 55 million people pushed below the poverty line over the last five years, there is widespread malnourishment. The economic recession has only worsened the situation and made it grimmer, especially for workers in the unorganised sector.

The BJP believes people have the right to food. To ensure food security for all and eliminate hunger, we will: 1. Provide 35 kg of rice or wheat every month to BPL families at Rs 2 per kg under an improved and expanded Antyodaya Anna Yojana. This will be available against ‘Food Coupons’ redeemable at both PDS and private outlets.

2. Allocate more funds for expanding, universalising and improving the functioning of the Public Distribution System.

3. Preventing families from slipping below the poverty line.

4. Setting up community kitchens in extremely impoverished areas with the help of NGOs through shared funding.

5. Aggressively addressing the problem of widespread malnutrition, especially by expanding the scope of the existing mid-day meal scheme.

6. Encouraging the production of cereals and discouraging the conversion of fertile farm land for dubious industrial projects.

7. Ensuring a sufficient level of food stocks are maintained to meet any exigencies due to possible global food crisis which could be severely debilitating and make imports prohibitively expensive, if not impossible.

7. The Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana, the largest rural connectivity programme initiated by the NDA Government, will be fully implemented in the first three years.

8. Bring down interest rates for housing loans so that housing becomes affordable, accessible and revives the stalled real estate sector which has witnessed huge job losses.

9. Enhance the capabilities of the manufacturing sector by easing credit availability.

10. Promote SMEs and the retail sector which can generate a large number of jobs and make a meaningful contribution to the national economy. The criteria for classifying SMEs will be reviewed.

11. Introduce reforms to improve productivity and greater capital formation.

12. Give a boost to tourism by selecting 50 tourist destinations and investing heavily in their infrastructure and communications. Tourist arrivals will be doubled.

13. Impose countervailing restrictions on foreign companies operating in India, especially in the services sector, which, on account of domestic laws of their respective countries, have introduced restrictions on hiring Indian employees with valid work visas.

14. Regulatory bodies which are supposed to monitor the performance and balance sheets of companies will be strengthened to prevent corporate fraud that dents India’s image as well as has a direct impact on the market and investors.

15. Make India proud of Indian products, and make Indian brands globally competitive.

16. Ensure a decent level of consumption for all without encouraging consumerism.

My Comment:Food Security: Hunger free India where we are among the largest country by the government of India (past/present) export the raw agriculture product. And political party’s manifesto is saying that we will make India hunger free in next five years.

Urban India: Looking ahead to the future

As the national economy grows and jobs are generated, there will be a matching increase in the pressures on urban centres. Apart from assisting State Governments to renew and revive existing cities and replace festering slums with hygienic, affordable living quarters, the BJP will review and recast the Urban Development Policy. We will specifically do the following, bearing in mind the challenges of the future:

1. In pursuit of the principle of ‘Shelter for All’, 10 lakh dwelling units for the poor will be constructed every year.

2. Fifteen new cities, with world class infrastructure facilities and amenities, will be built in five years.

3. For existing urban centres, basic infrastructure facilities and amenities of water, drainage, roads, electricity, environment and solid waste management will be enhanced for a clean and healthy city life.

4. Peripheral areas of cities will be developed on the basis of ‘rurban’ concept to minimise migration: The physical infrastructure facilities will be that of urban areas but the heart and soul will be of rural areas.

5. GIS-based mapping of urban properties and title certification will be concluded.

6. Practical, pragmatic measures will be adopted to deal with emerging urban problems like vehicular traffic overload.

My Comment:Urban India: In Delhi most of the people are fighting for better living life day-by-day like crisis of drinking water, shortage of power supply, less availability of houses for those people who can afford it, proper drainage system, open drainage system is best resource to develop epidemic like Dengue, Chikungunia etc. Before proceeding to make some new world-class city convert the existing one into world-class like Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad etc.

Agriculture: Debt-free farmer, prosperous India

The pitiful state of our farm sector is best exemplified by debt-ridden farmers committing suicide. The UPA Government, while actively promoting the import of food grains, has callously ignored the plight of India’s farmers. There are three immediate concerns which will be addressed by the BJP in a time-bound manner: Ensuring assured income for farmers; freeing farmers from the burden of mounting debts; and, increasing public investment in agriculture. Everything can wait, but not agriculture. To make India’s farmer debt-free, the BJP will:

1. Waive agricultural loans.

2. Set up a commission to study the entire gamut of farmers’ loans and come up with an actionable solution to the deepening crisis within six months.

3. Set a maximum ceiling of 4 per cent interest for agricultural loans to farmers from banks.

4. Introduce a pension scheme for aged and helpless farmers.

5. Make agriculture profitable by reducing the cost of inputs, enhancing yields and reviewing the present method of determining prices.

6. Implement a Farm Income Insurance Scheme through which both price and produce will be insured. In the event of loss of crops, farmers will be compensated under this scheme so that they do not suffer any loss of income.

7. Promote nature-friendly cultivation and incentivise organic farming to arrest soil quality depletion. Special marketing assistance for organic produce.

8. Introduce value addition schemes to reduce wastage and invest in food-processing units which will generate jobs for rural youth.

9. Create irrigation facilities for an additional 35 million hectares of land in five years: This will generate rural jobs as well as benefit farmers. Drip irrigation will be promoted along with better water management and use of check dams.

10. Ensure quality power, seeds and other inputs.

11. Heavily invest funds in agriculture to reverse the trend set by the Congress-led UPA and make the farm sector an equal engine of growth along with industry and the services sector.

12. Strengthen National Rural Bank and allied services.

13. Promote horticulture, floriculture, pisciculture and poultry for generating additional jobs and supplementing incomes.

14. Create additional grazing land and encourage the maintenance of ponds and water bodies.

GM Seeds: No genetically modified seed will be allowed for cultivation without full scientific data on long-term effects on soil, production and biological impact on consumers. All food and food products produced with genetically modified seeds will be branded as ‘GM Food’.

My Comment:Agriculture: Before making debt-free farmer bring the people into agriculture or another way bring their interest into agriculture, because most the child of farmer from India don’t see any better live to be a farmer. They also need better life-style, better education, better communication, electricity, water etc. Make a happy agriculturist, Make a happy India.

Youth power: Empowering young India

India’s population, unlike that of Western nations, is getting younger by the day. More than half of our citizens are aged 25 and below; nearly two-thirds are aged 35 and below. The aspirations and ambitions of the youth are fuelled by rising literacy and awareness levels. It is the Government’s duty to help them achieve these aspirations and ambitions, and make them capable of taking on all challenges and converting them into opportunities. The BJP will fulfil this duty by framing policies in consonance with the concerns of ‘Young India’ and aimed at unleashing the abilities of the youth, who will be the driving force of this nation’s emergence as an awesome knowledge power. The BJP’s Manifesto has been drafted keeping the aspirations and ambitions of the youth in mind.

We propose to review, revive and re-launch the National Service Scheme and National Cadet Corps as effective vehicles to involve the youth in nation-building and reinforcing their national spirit. Their participation in the decision-making process and decision-making bodies will be actively encouraged.

The BJP also proposes to launch a unique ‘National Knowledge Incubation Programme’.

This will involve the setting up of ‘Incubation Centres’ for meritorious students from all strata of society. To begin with, at least one per cent of the best brains will be deployed for mentoring at the ‘Incubation Centres’. Adequate resources will be provided for the programme. A National Student Bank will be set up to meet the banking requirements, including study loans, of students, at 4% rate of interest.

My Comment:Empowering Young India: when 60% of the young graduates are unemployed when government is saying that we are creating jobs in various sectors regularly and another way young graduate is facing the jobs crisis these days. Every day’s newspaper is saying that all MNC’s are cutting their jobs regularly and terminating their employee for cost cutting and nobody thinking about those people who were taking a high range of salary suddenly they feel that they don’t have the jobs.

Education for all: Literate India, powerful India

The BJP will give education its due place in governance to achieve social, economic, cultural and technical advancement. Education will be the Government’s instrument to reduce poverty, promote health, protect the environment and advance gender equality. Central allocation to education shall be raised to six per cent of the GDP. Our goal is to spend nine per cent of GDP on education by involving the private sector.

A National Education Commission will be constituted to propose a comprehensive policy for the 21st century. The content and process of education shall be made responsive to the needs of the times and the aspirations of the young. The existing digital divide will be removed by extending the outreach of information technology to every child.

Particular emphasis shall be laid on value education, inclusive education, education of the migratory tribes and other deprived groups and all those who need additional support. The examination system will be reviewed for extensive reform.

The following are the highlights of the BJP’s agenda to ensure education for all: School Education

1. The success story of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, launched by the NDA in 2002, shall be strengthened, extended and concretised further in quality, content and support systems.

2. Implementation of the mid-day meal scheme shall be revitalised on modern management lines. Akshaya Patra Scheme will serve as a model for this purpose.

3. Effective steps shall be put in place to provide skills acquisition.

4. Primary school timings and vacations shall be flexible and decided upon by the local community and the Parents-Teachers Associations.

5. Universalisation of secondary education shall be speedily implemented. Special emphasis will be given to girls’ education at the secondary level.

6. All assistance will be provided for a national madarsa modernisation programme.

7. Close linkages between school education and higher education shall be built into the system.

which were proposed by the NDA Government but not acted upon by the UPA, will be expedited. Similar institutions will be set up in other places to broad-base access to specialised medical care.

3. Incentives and disincentives will be introduced for State Governments to improve the quality of primary health care, maternal health care, and child health care.

4. Targets will be set for achieving significant reduction in maternal and infant mortality by improving the Janani Suraksha Yojana. The successful initiative of the BJP Government in Gujarat in this regard will be used as a model.

5. Preventive health care by way of inoculation against diseases and dissemination of information will receive focussed attention.

6. A national programme will be launched to vaccinate adults and children against all forms of hepatitis.

7. Substantial investment will be made in promoting Ayurved as an alternative therapy. Full support will be extended to the promotion of Unani system of medicine and homoeopathy. The promotion of Yoga will receive all Government assistance.

8. Clean drinking water is one of the best barriers against common but often fatal diseases. The BJP proposes to make access to clean drinking water a fundamental right for all citizens.

My Comment:Education for all: What does it mean? Just know your name how to write it or something else. If it is how to write your name than I am confident that BJP or any government can do it. But if this is not than it is very difficult to do so for any government when the most of people of rural area always thinks that to be a literate just go the school and be present there and you will get the meal and go back home. Even you will not need to do any study but you will regularly pass from lower to higher class.

Population Stabilisation

The BJP views the people of India as productive assets of society. To maximize their productivity, they have to be provided with access to health, education, technology and skills, which, in turn, require additional resources. This will be possible if we are able to stabilize India’s population. Towards this end, the BJP will address three priority issues:

1. Recognition of close linkages between sustainable development and population stabilization.

2. Link population programmes with other development initiatives like health, education, nutrition and poverty eradication programmes.

3. Follow a non-coercive and gender sensitive approach for population stabilisation.

My Comment:Population Stabilization: who is affecting from the growing of India’s population. Is this is urban people or rural people. If it is urban one than high-class family or low class family are not affected from them. The affected one is always middle class family.

India shining Vs Bharat Nirman

When I have seen a poster/banners/hoarding in Delhi’s bus shelters about Bharat Nirman campaign started by congress party to keep the view in next coming election. I come off the five years back that BJP started the same campaign that is so called India shining. I remember the things that how congress party came into the government they show that how much money of indian people has been wasted on those Ads. What cost the BJP govt. paid for that campaign? Will congress party is going to same. I mean to say that congress party is also going to loose their govt. If they loose than what the next govt. will do that will be same for congress what they did for BJP. If not than nobody will know that how much money has been spend over these campaigning. Ultimately these are the loosing part of us. I mean to say that that money is our own. So we are the looser. So, who cares about those things? Nobody in today’s India. Just take an example, one of my friends is working for HSBC as financial analyst and he is getting lot of money from that company. He is post graduated from one of the leading university in India i.e. JNU. But he doesn’t bother to take part in election. Because he thinks all politicians are rotten fish. And we have a proverb in Hindi “Ek Sari Hui Machhli sare talab ko ganda kar deti hai”. Here all the fishes are rotten than how you can think that you can purify the pond i.e. Indian political system.

So what we have to do. Do it same one of my friend is doing or cast a vote for better candidate. Other wise someone will come to us and will say if you are not voting than you are sleeping. If we are sleeping than how we can say that someone will do some great work for us. If you are sleeping than nobody will do anything for you. So you have to be know your surrounding well. Nobody born as geniuses take an example the guys of Slum dog Millionaire, who never read anything formally but he knows everything. Because he kept his eye and ear open all the time. So we have to keep our eyes and ears should be open. It mean to say that if you know your surrounding well than you can contributing your society to make it better and better even if you don’t do anything physically, financially as well.

This is not the criticizing the campaign started by BJP or Congress Party. I never personally criticize those things. I think that if someone has been some great work for their people than they have the right to show all his work to the people in a right direction. Than the people can decide that who will be the best candidate for them for next fiver years and they can serve your society better.

So, Please caste your vote for better future.
