Will the Home Minister P Chidambaram
Respond Boldly and in Totality?
Offering to Quit
Was Not an Answer or a Solution

home minister P Chidambaram not conclude
that any movement in
so far, was remained a part of the State terrorism and was allowed
to flourish for the political reasons?
On the part of
home minister P Chidambaram offer to quit was not an answer
or a solution.
Sometime, he says,
“buck stops” with the chief minister, Mr Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee”,
and in another breath, he says, “buck stops here” to describe the
leadership’s responsibilities to tackle internal security issues, on
Friday made it plain that he will not engage in buck passing and
accepted the full responsibility of the Dantewada massacre. “I have
been asked directly or indirectly where the buck stops for what
happened in Dantewada. I have no hesitation in saying that the buck
stops at my desk,” Sometime he was boasting about his exceptional
achievements by saying that he knew his responsibilities well and
that he would do everything to ensure that “we have a well-paid,
well-fed, well-housed, well-trained, well-equipped and
well-motivated police force.” Stressing that the paramilitary
forces under him are undertaking training as an essential component,
Mr Chidambaram said: “When I took over, a handful of companies were
under training. Today as I speak to you, out of the 186 executive
battalions (of CRPF), 186 companies are under training. We have made
it a rule that one company in any Battalion shall at any time be
under training and be given rest and recuperation.”
Could there be any
consolation for the families of martyrs in such politically
motivated talks and explanations?
Will the home
minister P Chidambaram not conclude that any movement in India so
far, was remained a part of the State terrorism and was allowed to
flourish for the political reasons?
Was it (any
movement in India so far was remained a part of the State terrorism
and was allowed to flourish for the political reasons) not obvious
from the pressure on home minister P Chidambaram and suggested
methods to him to deal with the menace of terrorism.
Finding no way,
the solution of the political menace i.e. the part of State
terrorism, Mr. P Chidambaram wisely and tactfully preferred to quit
and that does not a indication of his sincerity or an honest
approach to deal with the political menace i.e. the part of State
Home minister, Mr. P
Chidambaram! Are you really sincere and honest to deal with the
menace of terrorism?
You must answer as how the
governments of India kept alive the terrorism to terrorize Sikhs
including all Panjabis in
Punjab till date and
Did your “Some powers” not use
the methods to keep the terrorism alive as the former DGP, KPS Gill
explained under the national policy and strategy (inhuman) to
terrorize Sikhs including all Panjabis in
I wish to pose the
following questions to have answers in the larger interest to test
the transparency and accountability in the context in Indian system:
1. Can the
information be provided as to how many Sikhs arrested meaning
thereby taken into custody, captured, detained, caught, taken in for
questioning, picked up etc and or how many sent abroad and now on
the ‘black list’, and or arrested to arm them as terrorists and
cats, and or how many surrendered meaning thereby: laid down their
arms, admitted defeat, submitted, yielded, given in, gave up etc
after the Army attack 1984 till today?
2. The details of
the Sikhs and others who were picked up spontaneously, unplanned
manner surprisingly and later on killed, eliminated, liquidated,
shown disappeared etc all including the given categories as stated
by former DGP K.P.S. GILL after the period stated above? See
3. As to why a
'Constitutional Commission' did not set up for facing justice on the
demand of former DGP K.P.S. GILL?
4. Could the
detailed identity of the main accused (Rajiv Gandhi) stands killed
by a ‘Human Bomb’, the other co-accused, who remained the part and
parcel of the then entire government machinery, responsible for the
`genocide of Sikhs' or the `State-Sponsored Violence' against Sikhs
not be disclosed being a matter of record as the accused were on
duty on all the three days of Sikh Massacre-1984?
5. Why only the
government always form or remain in search of some committee, team,
the individuals as its henchmen, when the crime(s) committed by the
state machinery become so open, to insist only to accept the
adequate compensation and start pressurizing the victims families to
accept the same and no guilty punished except playing political
dramas like the cases of H.K.L. Bhagat, Jagdish Tytler and now case
of Sajjan Kumar etc?
Why the complete
identity and full particulars of all black-listed Sikhs not being
disclosed so far, was there something left to further manipulate in
Now, you can judge
yourself and your government as to how far you were and are sincere
to deal with the menace of the terrorism in India.
Be bold to answer and tackle the menace and the offering to quit
for political mileage was not a solution and an answer in this case.
Isn’t? Will the Home Minister P
Chidambaram respond boldly and in its totality?
