National calamity and India has always got a funny correlation. Very funny in fact. At least for our political class, these tragedies are nothing short of gold dust. A class which always remains as lethargic as one can’t even imagine, suddenly works overtime during the time of tragedy to garner few brownie points. This is always the case with India and its rotten political class. Ditto is true for our paid and sold out media even. So Uttarakhanda tragedy couldn’t and shouldn’t be anyway different.
Honestly, I am not too impressed with NaMo and his visit to Dehradun. That said he could be forgiven for his unnecessary limelight garbing attempt, provided the reports of him bringing back 15000 Gujuratis stranded at various places, with him is true. NaMo knowingly or unknowingly did establish a chord with the people who were suffering there and certainly scored few political points. Someone who is not in power at the center and far from being party to the mess that looks so manmade in Uttarakhand can be let off for his attempt at scoring political points during the most unfortunate hours. But could the same be told for the Congress which not only is ruling the center but also the state? The trusted lieutenants when informed the queen on the grounds that NaMo concurred with his political masterstroke, it shouldn’t anyway bring about such theatrical response from a party which always is in the habit of telling lies and shying away from its responsibilities. To counter the NaMo steps, the queen herself, duly accompanied by the dumb head and an equally dumb CM decided to make a farce out of the whole thing. If you can forgive the language of my Tweet, you could see the precise question I wanted to ask to all the Congressi clowns. Flagging off only two trucks of relief material for the survivors and that too after 10 long days the tragedy happened, is made an event such big that it called for Samiyanas to be erected and a flag off ceremony to be organized. Flagging off? Seriously? I want to reiterate my question – is it some kind of firkin Himalayan Car Rally that Sonia Gandhi thought she is flagging off? If NaMo’s visit to Dehradun is an act of playing politics, as per the clown Manish
Not only are our politicians, even our paid media is baking its bread on the dead bodies of Uttarakhand. While the howling in the studios continues on how different establishments never bothered for multiple ecological warnings, none of them rightfully dares to point fingers at the worthless government, which in my view is the culprit number one. All that our media can do is to deploy foot soldiers, whom they call their reporters and air old clippings from YouTube and claim them to be the live and exclusive footage from the devastated area. How moronic an attempt that is, requires no rocket science to understand. Look how Barkha Dutt is so concerned for the survivors. She is hoping or may be even praying for the weather to hold so that the rescue act can go uninterrupted. Such a pious soul she is. No? But in reality she cares for the survivors as much as I care for my Tennis coach’s screwed up forehand. All that she may be praying in all likelihood is for the weather to hold so that her so called overnight journey to Uttarakhand is not interrupted and she may be able to timely air her nonsense from the so called ground zero as she always does.
Rahul Kanwal couldn’t have thrown a bigger eye-opener for the heir apparent, provided he has that bare minimum IQ to understand. ‘Netas should spend time with the people’ and I am sure holidaying in Europe when people were dying and only coming back for a shameless photo up opportunity is not exactly what the other Rahul is urging the useless Rahuls of the world to do. And by the way, I hope you might have marked how INC flags were tucked to the trucks those were carrying the relief material as if it is not the GOI which is sending them but the Congress party from their own pockets or more precisely the Mai-Baap Gandhi family. Such third graded opportunistic morons these reprobates with their vested interests are. For these scoundrels, the dead or those who are in the verge of dying are nothing more than a rotten political platform.
Hope the nation is taking note of everything, including the crocodile tears the clowns of the Gandhi family routinely shedding since last 2-3 days. Hope everyone understands the sinister plot that the thugs from Congress are planning to plot behind such theatrical flag off nonsense. In all of this I only feel sorry for those who are still stranded in the mountains, many of whom might very well have voted for this useless government to end up seeing their elected representatives making a family photo session out of their sufferings and throwing irritabilities left-right-and-center.
