Sikh Advocate applauds Sikh Prime
By Balbir Singh Sooch, Advocate, Ludhiana
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?”
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
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.
(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
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
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,
is rightly to be called ‘Unmanageable India’.
