It is open season on the Indian politician.
E.R. RAMACHANDRAN forwards a copy of an open letter to prime minister Manmohan Singh, purportedly from a resident of Nepean Sea Road, which captures the urban middle-class rage against netas, post the Bombay blasts.
Dear Mr Prime Minister
I am a typical mouse from Bombay.
In the local train compartment which has capacity of 100 persons, I travel with 500 more mouse. Mouse at least squeak but we don’t even do that.
Today I heard your speech. In which you said “Nobody will be spared.” I would like to remind you that 14 years have passed since the serial bomb blasts in Bombay took place. Dawood Ibrahim was the main conspirator. Till today he is not caught. All our Bollywood actors, our builders, our Gutka kings meet him but the Indian Government cannot catch him.
Reason is simple; all your ministers are hand in glove with him. If any attempt is made to catch him everybody will be exposed. Your statement “Nobody will be spared” is nothing but a cruel joke on the unfortunate people of India.
Enough is enough. As such after seeing terrorist attack carried out by about a dozen young boys I realize that if same thing continues days are not away when terrorist will attack by air, destroy our nuclear reactor and there will be one more Hiroshima.
We the people are left with only one mantra: Womb to Bomb to Tomb. You promised Bombayites a Shanghai; what you have given us is Jalianwala Bagh. Today only your home minister resigned. What took you so long to kick out this joker? Only reason was that he was loyal to the Gandhi family. Loyalty to Gandhi family is more important than blood of innocent people, isn’t it?
I was born in Bombay 58 years ago. I was brought up here. Believe me corruption in Maharashtra is worse than that in Bihar . Look at all the politician, Sharad Pawar, Chagan Bhujbal, Narayan Rane, Bal Thackeray, Gopinath Munde, Raj Thackeray, Vilasrao Deshmukh all are rolling in money. Vilasrao Deshmukh is one of the worst Chief minister I have seen. His only business is to increase the FSI every other day, make money and send it to Delhi so Congress can fight next election. Now the clown has found a new way and will increase FSI for fisherman so they can build concrete house right on sea shore. Next time terrorists can comfortably live in those house , enjoy the beauty of sea and then attack Bombay at their will.
Recently I had to purchase house in Mumbai. I met about two dozen builders. Everybody wanted about 30% in black. A common person like me knows this and with all your intelligence agencies and CBI, you and your finance minister are not aware of it. Where does all the black money go? To the underworld isn’t it? Our politicians take help of these goondas to vacate people by force. I myself was victim of it. If you have time please come to me, I will tell you everything.
If this has been land of fools, idiots then I would not have ever cared to write you this letter. Just see the tragedy. On the one hand, we are reaching the moon, people are so intelligent and on the other hand, you politicians have converted nectar into deadly poison.
I am everything Hindu, Muslim, Christian, scheduled caste, OBC, Creamy Schedule caste… Only what I am not is Indian.
You politicians have raped every part of Mother India by your policy of divide and rule. Take the example of former president Abdul Kalam. Such an intelligent person, such a fine human being. You politicians didn’t even spare him. Your party along with the opposition joined the hands, because politicians feel they are supreme and there is no place for good person.
Dear Mr Prime minister you are one of the most intelligent persons, most learned. Just wake up, be a real sardar. First and foremost expose all selfish politician. Ask the Swiss banks to give name of all Indian account holders. Give reins of the CBI to an independent agency. Let them find the wolf among us. There will be political upheaval but that will better than the dance of death which we are witnessing every day. Just give us ambient where we can work honestly and without fear.
Let there be rule of law. Everything else will be taken care of.
Choice is yours Mr. Prime Minister. Do you want to be lead by one person or you want to lead the nation of 100 crore people?
