Despite the RIDICULOUS claims by BJP that Bangaru Laxman was acting on his own accord, not BJP's, the BLATANT TRUTH, THAT IS KNOWN TO ALL, is that BJP is a thoroughly corrupt party.
Any attempt by BJP to deny this can fool the dunces among the "intelligentsia" (of which there are plenty) who do not know how India's governance actually works, but can't fool the common man (like me).
There is just too much evidence – starting from the expenditure of CRORES OF BLACK MONEY during elections – for BJP to pretend that it is not a deeply corrupt outfit.
Even a wolf in sheep's clothing can fool us. Not BJP.
Just to clarify my position, this snippet from a FB conversation:
I downloaded your book BFN and read upto 70+ pages , This is eye opening book for every indian . I also always thought the root cause of all present problems of india was Nehruvian Policies. This dyansty has eaten india's precious 60 years those were enough to put India on top of the world map.
Thanks, XX. It is not the dynasty issue that I'm talking about. That's an issue, but that's secondary. The main issue is socialist policies. And you'll note that in the book I point out that ALL political parties are godchildren of Nehru and follow his policies. BJP follows socialism, reservations, etc. Not ONE thing different to what Nehru said.
In mid-1975 I had finished year 10 and was going into year 11. A little later, the Emergency was declared. I was very angry at the turn of events.
In particular, I had been very angry at the idea of forcible sterilisation, and in deep anger (before the Emergency) painted the following painting, that points my RED, HOT, BIG finger at Indira Gandhi for her many crimes, including impoverishment of the people and HER DASTARDLY, COERCIVE family planning programme (see the red inverted triangle made by the elbow of the poor sick man)
When Sanjay Gandhi died, I was THRILLED. This man, who could have become India's dictator, fortunately self-destructed.
And so, when the Janata Party came to power in 1977, my joy was unbounded. I recall spending hours at the public display of national electoral results in Jullundur (it was manually updated as the results came in, by the election office), and being in great joy that the tyrant Indira Gandhi had been DEFEATED by the people of India (since that day I vigorously oppose the slightest suggestion that the Indian voter is cheaply "bought" out by liquor or money).
But, of course, little did one realise that the Jan Sanghis who constituted the Janata party (along with left-overs of the defunct Swatantra Party and some stragglers from a few socialist outfits) had in their midst people with a desire to become Sanjay Gandhi themselves.
Remember that Jayaprakash Narayan (the original one!) had long since become an enemy of communism, and seriously questioned socialism. He did not advocate modern capitalism (which he surely did not understand) but was as much a classical liberal by the 1970s, as Gandhi had been.
In that sense the Janata Party, while socialist in its public comments, was very wary of government intervention. Morarji Desai had personally found much to question socialism, and had lost his fascination for the USSR, unlike Indira Gandhi, who lived off the droppings of USSR's rulers.
Had the Janata experiment not self-destructed due to idiotic and clownish leadership, it held the seed of a new India. But that was not to be.
Unfortunately, when Janata split asunder in the late 1980s, one of its branches, the BJP, became TOTALLY TOXIC.
BJP is toxic at many levels. It is anti-Hindu. It wants to take India back to the middle ages. It is a proponent of the deadly philosophy of Hindutva (no matter how much this philosophy is diluted, as has been happening for decades, it simply can’t lose its poison).
But now BJP is becoming A MIRROR IMAGE OF SANJAY GANDHI – the greatest enemy of the Indian people.
BJP in Madhya Pradesh has done many evil things, but the most evil is this:
Shyam Lal, 16, Kol tribal, Rewa Forcibly sterilised on February 16. Was told that he was being treated for fever. Abandoned by the doctor in an unconscious state, had to walk back home after spending the night out in the fields. Has not been compensated for being sterilised by the district officials at Rewa.
A bewildered Shyam Lal is back at hospital, having developed abdominal pain after the ‘procedure’. He’s at the Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Hospital, and surely unaware of the irony that it bears the name of the man who gained notoriety for running the famous nasbandi (sterilisation) campaign during the Emergency years of 1975-77. [Source]
The CM of Madhya Pradesh, Shivraj Singh Chauhan, is denying that "family planning in the state is a targeted exercise", but till he PERSONALLY hangs till death the man who forcibly sterilised Shyam Lal, I will consider Shivraj Singh Chauhan to be AN ENEMY OF INDIA.
Find out who sterilised this man. Find out who is sterilising thousands of innocent tribals, being "bribed" by "Rs 600 and a six-yard saree" and KILL THEM ALL. Each and every such doctor.
This makes my blood boil. The forcible sterilisation of people. As if they were CATTLE.
Rape is a heinous crime. But forcible sterilisation is 1000000 TIMES MORE HEINOUS.
I want BJP to eject Shivraj Singh Chauhan from BJP membership at once.
The signs are all clear. This is a SECOND COMING OF SANJAY GANDHI, through BJP – the party that opposed such coercion in the 1970s.
Shame on you, BJP. I don't understand why such monsters (Chauhan) are not being killed outright by the people through a violent revolt against such extreme tyranny.
BJP talks about Ram and the Ramayana. Please show me one instance of Ram behaving in such a DASTARDLY manner.
Clearly, BJP is an enemy of Hinduism.
In the Mahabharata, Sri Krishna counsels king Yudhishthira thus:
King of men! with sleepless watching ever guard thy kingdom flair,
Like a father tend thy subjects with a father’s love and care,
Be unto them like the rain-drop nourishing the thirsty ground,
Be unto them tree of shelter shading them from heat around,
Like the blue sky ever bending be unto them ever kind,
Free from pride and free from passion rule them with a virtuous mind!
This article says it all: http://www.indianexpress.com/news/bjp-laps-up-tainted-exministers-discarded-by-mayawati/895322/
Badshah Singh, who has several pending criminal cases against him, was inducted into the BJP ahead of the the February elections.
Let this be known that FTI has EXTREMELY STRINGENT STANDARDS and none of these scum can possibly enter (or remain) in FTI.
Would the (well known) BLIND of India please try taking off their SELF-IMPOSED blindfolds to look at reality with open eyes (perhaps for the first time in their life?) The sunlight of truth might do them some good.
And if, after seeing the sunlight, they are mentally and MORALLY prepared to change India for the better, would they consider applying to join FTI and FIGHT THESE SCUM?
Let this be said unambiguously, once and for all:
You are either WITH FTI, or you are against India.
What a stupid joke is this! BJP claiming it has no black money.
1. Can ANYONE of the BJP MPs prove that he (or she) spent within the Rs.25 lakhs election expense limit? (All studies of election expenditure show that well over Rs.2 crores is spent in each election – often Rs.6 crores or more.)
2. Can ANYONE of the BJP MPs show that he did not dole out lakhs of rupees of cash to voters during the election campaign? (I had a BJP visitor in my house a few years ago who personally distributed Rs.35 lakhs in cash to slums in Mumbai in the 2004 elections IN ONE NIGHT – and there were many such people like him going around distributing cash).
3. Can ANYONE of the BJP MPs show me ANYTHING he did to reduce corruption when BJP was in power?
4. Can ANYONE of the BJP MPs deny strong links with the Indian business community most of which specialises in not declaring income to the authorities?
We know your source of money, BJP. We know what you do during elections. We know what you do when you come to power.
How many people can you fool all the time? Perhaps only a handful – which is reflected in your sinking electoral prospects. Most people have seen through your dhong.
Advani, India's medieval nautanki, is such a joke.
After doing his standard routine of a "rath" across India (an automobile, actually, pretending to be a "rath"!), he now pretends to be an honest man:
Accusing the government of "lack of political will" to fight graft, Advani said the only route to end corruption is through public awakening or a change of government. [Source]
Does he mean to say that when BJP was in power it did ANYTHING to remove corruption? I never saw it EVEN ONCE. And I was Commissioner in Meghalaya at that time – and knew literally ALL of BJP's policies.
Indeed, I had particularly close access to Advani's government through Ashok Saikia (my ex-boss and good friend, and Vajpayee's favourite Joint Secretary).
Vajpayee, Advani, Yashwant Sinha, and a few other ministers attended a major NE event in the Pine Hotel in 2000, located just opposite my house. Ashok Saikia spent considerable time during the bulk of their political deliberations.
Later in the evening I organised a cultural event for these VIPs (since I was Commissioner for Arts and Culture). I met Ashok Saikia at length in the PMO, later, trying to suggest to him some ideas like the negative income tax which I had been circulating to everyone who counted in that government.
The point being that I knew most of BJP's policies when it was last in power. And in relation to corruption, it has a total of ZERO policies.
From 1999 to 2004 these BJP people had FOUR YEARS to do something on the corruption (or policy) front. They did NOTHING.
(The ONLY thing they did was to create riots and problems for everyone.)
So who believes this JOKER, Advani, now? He should go home.
As I've discussed frequently, BJP doesn't even know that corruption begins with socialism – which is its economic stance. Swadeshi, socialism – both go hand in hand.
Therefore, BJP's economic policies ENCOURAGE corruption. And it ACTIVELY partakes of corruption. Of that I have information from the horses' mouth (both from Ministers in Meghalaya and from BJP supporters).
