A Hypocrite Called Nayantara Sahgal

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 14, 2015           02.30 A.M.

Let me start with DADRI LYNCHING. It is despicable. It is atrocious. It is condemnable. No sane person will justify this heinous crime.

But it didn’t happen in a BJP-ruled state. It happened in Uttar Pradesh, a state ruled by SAMAJWADI PARTY, a family concern run by indefatigable MULAYAM SINGH YADAV and his bellicose clan.

Then came a statement of NAYANTARA SAHGAL, a forgotten, moth-eaten writer, who happened to be the niece of JAWAHAR LAL NEHRU, the 1st Prime Minister of India, and who got SAHITYA AKADEMY AWARD for her novel ” RICH LIKE US ” during her nephew Rajiv Gandhi’s rule. On October 06, 2015 she returned her SAHITYA AKADEMI AWARD to protest against “increasing intolerance and supporting right to dissent in the country”.

Her protest is against killing of Govind Pansare and M. M. Kalburgi and DADRI LYNCHING of a muslim person. I personally don’t support killing of writers or mob lynching. But I also have few questions for NAYANTARA SAHGAL.

She accepted SAHITYA AKADEMY AWARD in 1985, just a year after infamous 1984 Anti-Sikh riots of Delhi, during the term of her nephew Rajiv Gandhi. She didn’t return the award then. She didn’t return the award when Babri Majid was demolished. It happened again during Congress rule. She didn’t return the award when KASHMIRI PANDITS were driven out of their houses in Kashmir valley. She didn’t return the award when Narendra Dabholkar was murdered during Congress rule.

SO WHY NOW?

She did give her answer. She said, ” NOW THERE IS A HINDUTVA GOVERNMENT AT THE CENTRE.”

I call it selective outrage. She has double standards and is a stark hypocrite.

After her “outrage”, 25 more authors have returned their awards. But look at the facts. Only 25 out of 1004 recipients announce the returning of the awards. Out of these 25 authors, only 8 have written letters that they intend to return the award. And only 3 have returned the award money of INR 1,00,000.00 [ INR One Lakh ]. Wow! such brave intentions!

I denounce these bunch of jokers. They are out of sync with the NEW INDIA. They are jaded. They are archaic. They are hypocrites of the worst kind. It’s a good riddance. NEW INDIA is better placed without such pig-headed intellectuals.

Sitting in their swanky mansions, these outdated intellectuals pretend that they know India better. According to me NAYANTARA SAHGAL’s belated protest is linked to her feeling of being a part of Nehru-Gandhi oligarchy and a failed attempt to thwart a perceived threat to the Nehruvian legacy.

threat to the Nehruvian legacy.

LOCAL BODY ELECTIONS – UTTAR  PRADESH
=========================================
The Bharatiya Janata Party [ BJP ] recently swept urban local body elections in Uttar Pradesh . It won 10 of 12 mayoral posts in municipal corporations . Ruling Samajwadi Party [ SP ] supported candidate won 1 municipal corporation and Bahujan Samaj Party [ BSP ] supported candidate won 1 . Indian National Congress failed to open its account .
Bharatiya Janata Party [ BJP ] candidates won mayoral elections in Agra , Aligarh , Ghaziabad , Gorakhpur , Jhansi , Kanpur , Lucknow , Meerut , Moradabad and Varanasi .
Bareilly seat went to ruling Samajwadi Party [ SP ]   backed nominee I. S . Tomar and a Bahujan Samaj Party [ BSP ] supported candidate won in Allahabad .
In Agra BJP candidate Indrajeet Arya defeated BSP backed Kartar Singh Bhartiya by a margin of 12,467 .
in Aligarh BJP candidate Shakuntala Bharati defeated independent Razia Khan by a margin of 41,834 votes .

In Gorakhpur BJP’s Satya Pandey defeated Surhita Kareem of Congress by a margin of 33,156 votes .
In Jhansi Kiran Raju Bookseller of  BJP defeated Nirmala Bilharia of Congress by a margin of 25,659 votes .
In Kanpur Jagatveer Singh Dron of BJP defeated his nearest rival Pawan Gupta of Congress by a margin of 53,323 votes and retained the seat .
In Lucknow  BJP party candidate Dinesh Sharma won the seat for the second consecutive term defeating Neeraj Bora of Congress by a margin of more than 1,71,824 votes.
In Meerut, Harikant Ahluwalia of BJP defeated SP-backed Rajeeq Ansari by a margin of 70,806 votes .

Ruling SP backed candidate I S Tomar defeated BJP’s Gulshan Anand by a margin of 47,128 votes in Bareilly.

Abhilasha Gupta of BSP defeated Kamla Singh of BJP by a margin of 59,555 votes in Allahabad.

By winning 10 seats, BJP upped its tally as compared to 2007 elections when the party won only 8 seats.

The Congress , which won 3 mayoral seats, including Jhansi, Allahabad and Bareilly in the last municipal poll , failed to open its account this time.

In U. P. , elections were held for 12 municipal corporations, 186 Nagar Palika Parishads and 388 Nagar Panchayats.

Congress and BJP contested elections on party symbol, while BSP and SP, though allowed their workers to contest polls, did not allot party symbols.

LOCAL BODY ELECTIONS – MADHYA  PRADESH
===========================================

Apart from Uttar Pradesh , blitzkrieg of ruling Bharatiya Janata Party [ BJP ] continued in Madhya Pradesh also . Out of 27  municipalities , BJP won 20 . Independents got 4 municipal boards and Indian National Congress got just 3 municipalities .

Before these elections in UP and MP , BJP captured all the 3 Municipal Corporations in New Delhi and even before that BJP along with Shiv Sena romped home in BMC , Mumbai .

ROLE OF ELECTRONIC MEDIA

==============================

It is a major political news of immense importance . In Uttar Pradesh BJP improved its tally by 2 and its minimum victory margin was 9,500 in Ghaziabad and the maximum was 1,71,000 in Lucknow , where it fared poorly in last Assembly elections . In remaining 2 corporations it was the nearest rivals to the winning candidates .

Congress drew blank in Uttar Pradesh and won just 3 out of 27 municipalities in Madhya Pradesh . Electronic media welcomed the news with deafening silence . Few reported it with a caveat . Read the following lines :

” However, the results are subject to the outcome of a writ petition filed in the Supreme Court challenging reservation in the local bodies. “

Had it been a Congress victory in UP and MP local body elections , electronic media would have written obituary of  BJP . On the day of BJP victory , they were busy discussing Karnataka crisis and were taking sadistic pleasure . V. S. Yeddyurappa and Sadananda Gowda both belong to BJP and even if they can’t see eye to eye and have some genuine differences , it is possible in democracy and it should be welcomed  . They never went to the extreme of tearing the party into two like Mrs. Indira Gandhi .

Jagadish Shettar , the new BJP Chief Minister of Karnataka is a RSS swayamsevak and rose to prominence during 1992 Hubballi Idgah movement . He was lathi charged for trying to hoist Tiranga at Hubballi Idgah Maidan . New Dy. Chief Minister R. Ashoka is also political savvy and this new BJP team of Karnataka is going to be the nemesis of the electronic pundits and nay – sayers .

Corrected few errors.

Map of India Showing Provinces Ruled by Parties (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

As shown it the above map BJP is ruling in Himachal Pradesh , Gujarat , Goa , Madhya Pradesh , Chhattisgarh and Karnataka on its own and is a dominant partner in ruling coalition in Punjab , Bihar , Jharkhand and Nagaland . It is ruling major civic bodies in Mumbai and New Delhi but still as per the electronic media pundits , it is on decline .

I think coming elections in Himachal Pradesh , Gujarat and Karnataka will open their eyes . Or may be they will never open their eyes and would never like to see the truth . Is it because they are p..d ?
