This article was written a couple of days ago. Due to some technical difficulties, this could not be published earlier. The latest news surrounding the death of Hemant Karkare takes away the relevance of the articles. However, worth still a read, me thinks. Enjoy!
It is the story that has caught the nation by storm. On one hand you have the Union Minister for Minority Affairs and a former Chief Minister of Maharashtra, A R Ant-u-lay who seemed to open his mouth at a time when the whole country is going through the post terrorism crisis and on the other hand, there is another so called self made icon of the Marathi Manoos, Balasaheb (a.k.a. Uncle) led Shiva Sena who wants to press it hard….as hard as he can so that the affairs (however minor that is) come to an Ant.
Jokes apart, Uncle Bala and his son Udhav can do away with their “no-one-cares” remarks. Why do they need to raise their voice for every thing that is said and heard. First of all, they can’t take care of their people when in crisis, and now they come forward to shout at the top of their voice as if our Mr.Ant is the only one who has made controversial statements.
Did you forget about your nephew Raj Thackeray and his escapades?
High time The Thackerays kept a low profile and not pressed hard for every thing that is said and heard. Sometimes it may be worth doing so.
Should Antulay have spoken the way he has? Should he not have given considerations how people would react especially the police fraternity who gave many a lives to save the city of Mumbai from falling down?
Of course, he could have watched his mouth. Instead of guess-working in the media about his wild Sherlock Holmes like detectivities, he would not have been lynched by these senseless morons if he were a bit cautious in your approach. He needs to take a lesson or two in public speaking. Yes Minister!!!
Speaking of Aam Aadmi, we are still at a loss why did Hemant Karkare lose his life ? May be he was a victim of terror. May be he was pinned down by his detractors. May be there was a hidden agenda – who knows ?? Government ought to probe some of these incidents de facto
If Antulay has spoken, he has done so on behalf of the public. There is widespread anger the way government has been conducting its business and the way senior police officials have been made scapegoats. Else, explain why Senior Mumbai Police Officials, Roy & Gafoor got transferred despite them being very actively involved in the rescue effort ?
May be it’s time for sweeping the “Home” once again – Mr. Home Minister, are you listening?
