Aaj ki Aawaz
Every day a new twist comes out in the Anderson story!!!
And every twist makes Congress look even more sorry!!
Now its come out that Anderson was given a guarantee!!
When he came to India first hand to see!!
Guarantee of safe passage to return to USA was given to Andy the Gas
So he came into India and then out he ran!!
And if Congress denies this then why did Anderson say???
That he was free to go back to USA!
Fact is India buckled under pressure from Uncle Sam!!!!
Country of Liberty and Justice is just a sham!!
US is the global bully!!!
And justice is only an American right and others are just gajar mooli!
Sadly Opposition in India has neutered itself!!!
Like from a giant today the main Opposition Party is more like an elf!!
Third Front has disintegrated!!
As only for the General Election it was created!!
A strong Opposition is a must in a Democratic setup!!!!
To question the Government it is the duty of the Opposition to get up!!
Speaking of Opposition
.. back into BJP the prodigals return!!
After Jaswant now it is Umas turn!!
Though some say Umas return will not be easy!!
As Leaders in MP BJP to her return are queasy!!
Ram Jethamalani aka Ramu aka Jethu has made it to the Upper House!!
Rebellion in BJPs Rajasthan Unit BJP was able to douse!!
Moneybags Mallya too bought his way into Upper House!!
Gowdas thirst 'King of good times' was able to douse!!
Montek is back to his fuel price hike!!!!
The man has sheer capitalism imprinted in his psyche!!
When was the last time he paid his fuel bill!!
With Sarkaari paisa his Sarkaari car ka tank hotha hai fill!!
. Government needs to re-look at duties and taxes
levied on fuel!!
And also realize that rocketing inflation ko fuel price rise will
provide rocket fuel!!

This refers to "Arun Bal is joining the Government of India as

batch who belongs to the West Bengal cadre." 1986 batch officers
of the Armed Forces have barely reached the ranks of Colonel and equivalant
who the bureacrates have pegged at directors
level. The joint secy equivalant would be equivalant to Maj Gen as dictated
by the bureaucrates! Is there any justifaction, morally, humanly or
functionally for such a
desparity to exist when both will have to work together in the same
Is not such a system responsible for creating an atmosphere of mistrust,
maladjustment and rendering the system disfunctional by creating such
massive ineqalities and desparities ? What is so special about IAS that
he sprints up the ladder and other are made to crawl? "Creation
of a cadre of loyalist" one may say. But is that a national requirement?
Wouldn't such system end up creating more disloyal people than the number
of loyals ? What is more beneficial politically , socially and psychologically?
More and more loyals or only IAS loyals ? Congress leadership may ponder
over it for the benefit of a good
