Sikh Advocate applauds Sikh Prime Minister

By Balbir Singh Sooch, Advocate, Ludhiana

Congratulated Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, on May 23, 2004 and May 23, 2009 by us, be reminded again to fulfill the expectations from him as we heartily sent congratulations to him and his family members, who considered him (now all countrymen think so) a serious man, for becoming the prime minister of this vast country though not fully managed (Unmanageable India) so far. 

Dr. Manmohan Singh proved himself as an extraordinary personality and a clean Sikh (Not a weak or useless, but a modern Philosopher of Plato) in the present top political scenario of India. 

Here liberal attitude and farsightedness of Mrs. Sonia Gandhi (Plato) and her children, Rahul and Priyanka deserved to be especially appreciated and respected in all respects forever.

Dr. Manmohan Singh was having long innings in economical field and he is likely to touch a new height in this direction beyond any imagination, like becoming the Prime Minister of India at this moment. 

What did countrymen expect from him, “the implementation of ‘Rule of Law’ should have been his priority to protect the common man, otherwise, he (common man) has to take shelter meekly within the different horde / swarm who always remain beyond the reach of law. 

Can there be the implementation of ‘Rule of Law’ without managing the country economically, politically, socially and without ensuring the justice and dignity to all?”

Were the congratulations proved the flattery on our part in absence of fulfillment of the expectations? Or shall flattery be linked as a personal matter between Dr. Manmohan Singh (a modern Philosopher of Plato) and Mrs. Sonia Gandhi (Plato) to run the unmanageable India so cruelly or without intervening in the style of functioning of the central agencies (“Some powers”) at the cost of downtrodden and the security forces personnel as being killed daily so casually? 

As to how rulers were adversely effected by such nonsense and the mindless killings? That’s the question always agitating to the prudent men’s mind.

For the reasons of the worst condition of downtrodden, unemployed and helpless and the injustice meted out to them, the flattery has become the way of life, not the ‘Rule of Law’. The weaknesses of any individual lead to corruption. Law must prevail in India to remove ills.

The welfare measures, the reforms and the justice system remained ineffective in building up the confidence and to bring improvement in living conditions in general so far, especially in the part of completely isolated and unmanageable areas of India.  

Who were and are responsible for the ills and the crime in India

Whether now the elimination of tribal population including their leaders about in numbers 20-30 (the leaders may be sitting somewhere in safe heavens, beyond the reach of law and the forces) inhumanly, left the only solution for the country boasting her as a civilized and the largest democracy in the world?

The following extracts i.e. points at glance from some articles were the clear cut pointer of the planned, seriously actionable negligence and the policy on the part of the Indian rulers for the deteriorating situation and now dealing with it inhumanly, committing another blunder.

1.        “They (Maoists) buy arms from across the border. There are arms bazaars across the border. They bring them clandestinely into the country,” Chidambaram said at a press conference on Thursday. "Where do the Northeast insurgents get their arms from? Arms are looted from security forces, procured from across the border, country-made weapons are acquired,” Union Home Minister P Chidambaram added.

2.      Maoists: With roots in a 1967 peasant uprising in the West Bengali village of Naxalbari—hence their name, Naxalites—the Maoists have recently grown more potent. They have an estimated 14,000 full-time fighters and loosely control a swathe of central and eastern India, albeit in jungle areas where the state is hardly present.

3.      Three things explain the Naxalites’ rise. First, since merging their two main factions in 2004—to form the Communist Party of India (Maoist) under Muppala Lakshmana Rao, known as “Ganapathi”—they have minimised the internal feuding that plagued them. Second, many festering grievances among tribal communities who live in India’s poor eastern states have provided them willing hands. And third, rapid economic growth there, especially in mining, has given the Naxalites new targets for extorting cash, including foreign and state-owned mining companies.

4.      The official response has been pitiful. Despite calls to action from the central government—in 2006 the prime minister, Manmohan Singh, described the insurgency as India’s “single biggest internal-security challenge”—most state governments, which are primarily responsible for law and order, have hardly stirred.

5.      Complacency is partly to blame: until recently few state-level politicians seemed to share Mr Singh’s alarm. Political expediency also plays a part: Shibu Soren, chief minister of Maoist-racked Jharkhand, won an election last year with the guerrillas’ support and is predictably reluctant to fight them.” The similar mind-set of other politicians for getting the support can not be ruled out in the alleged disturbed areas in India.

6.      After seeing the bad effect of Naxalites movement in Punjab about 40 years back, “Sikh struggle for Khalistan” that was put into mouth of the Sikhs as a leading question by the Indian agencies, Maoists movement in Nepal and the LTTE’s movement in Sri Lanka, I am of the firm view that “Terrorism has always an end but the State Terrorism ends never. If terrorists don’t wish to be humans then it is better for them to be with the State.”

Seeing the disturbance and the injustice all round, India is rightly to be called ‘Unmanageable India’.
