Indian Presidential Race Hots Up ~ Our Extraordinary Country is being Run by Ordinary People !
Just too many ‘C’s !
Indian Politics have always been a ‘C’onundrum of ‘C’riminality,’C’orruption and ‘C’ommunalism ~ and ‘C’oalition ‘C’ompulsions !
It’s now become a ‘C’onvoluted ‘C’omedy to elect our next Rubber Stamp President !
There should be a ‘C’onsensus ‘C’andidate to elect our President next month ~ Head of our ‘C’onstitution
Ideally the President should be Non Political ~ and the election process should be depoliticised ~ but really never is except for when Abdul Kalam became our worthy President ~ Hope he assumes Presidency again next month
Instead we have Congress announcing their President Preferences without consulting even it’s allies in the UPA 2 Govt let alone discussing the names with the leading Opposition Party BJP
Amusingly yesterday it was a Congress ally TMC Head,Mamta Banerjee who made public the Congress President,Sonia Gandhi’s President Preferences ~ Then even more stunningly Mulayam Singh of the Samajwadi Party and she within an hour announced their own three and quite different preferences ~ one of which was our own PM ! ~ and one the much liked and worthy Abdul Kalam
India’s ‘C’ommon man has no Voice !
Our Extraordinary Country is being Run by Ordinary People !
One last thought ~ Even if mid term General Elections do come about in late 2012 or 2013 before they are scheduled in 2014 ,what’s the alternative to the Congress led UPA 2 Government !? ~ a BJP led NDA 2 or a completely new Third Front Alliance !? ~ anything but a Congress led UPA 3 ! seems to say the ‘C’ommon Man hit by unprecedented scale of ‘C’orruption and Inflation
