These are the facts , which Congress and paid media of India want to hide and which are not known to general public . And these facts make very interesting reading . There are many valuable links to various blogs , twitter handles and YouTube videos , which are of archival importance and they provide fascinating information .

Assembly Election 2012 : Decline & Fall of Nehru – Gandhi Dynasty


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           MARCH 12, 2012           01.10 A.M.

Last month Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation and other Civic Elections were held in Maharashtra and they threw surprising results . BJP and Shiv Sena , along with their new ally RPI [ Republican Party of India ] have won Mumbai , Thane , Ulhasnagar , Nagpur and Akola municipal corporations . They , in fact , won 5 Municipal bodies out of 10 . In Mumbai BJP [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] and Shiv Sena combine is in power since 15 years . It is their 4th consecutive term . Before election results were declared , BJP was written off by Left – Liberal – Pseudo Secular intelligentsia , TV anchors and journalists . BJP , to their utter dismay , won 3 more seats in Mumbai that 2007.

Same pattern was repeated in just concluded 5 assembly elections by same Left – Liberal – Pseudo Secular intelligentsia , TV anchors and journalists . They wrote BJP off . But again they have bitten dust . They were baffled by the saffron surge .Latest assembly election in 5 states of India is going to be a game – changer in many sense of the term .

It heralds all – encompassing saffron surge .

It signifies decimation of Indian National Congress .

It signals decline and subsequent fall of Nehru – Gandhi dynasty .

It bares open Anti – Nationalist agenda of  Left – Liberal – Pseudo Secular intelligentsia , TV anchors and journalists .

Before election results were declared , almost all the News anchors and psephologists were in unison that the Congress will come with flying colours in all the states . It will oust BJP from Uttarakhand and Punjab and will gain substantially in Uttar Pradesh and BJP in Uttar Pradesh will be put to the 4th position . That Congress will win in Manipur was a foregone conclusion . They gave BJP just a slender majority in Goa .

Psephologists repeated these lies 24×7 . Mr. Rahul Gandhi and his campaign trail was followed by Left – Liberal – Pseudo Secular intelligentsia , TV anchors and journalists . Even minutest details were dutifully reported and a false image was created about victory of Congress and defeat of BJP . Mr. Rahul Gandhi , Ms. Priyanka Gandhi and her kids descended on Uttar Pradesh and media portrayed them as the saviours of the people of Uttar Pradesh . All the BJP leaders were ignored as if they don’t exist . Mr. Mulayam Sigh Yadav was given larger number of seats compared to Congress but not the majority . According to Left – Liberal – Pseudo Secular intelligentsia , TV anchors and journalists , Congress was supposed to be the king – maker in Uttar Pradesh , king in Punjab , Uttarakhnd and Manipur and a minor looser in Goa .

According to Left – Liberal – Pseudo Secular intelligentsia , TV anchors and journalists , BJP was going to be 4th in Uttar Pradesh , going to be ousted in Punjab and Uttarakhand and is going to be nowhere in Manipur . Goa was given to BJP but hesitatingly .

Shri Lal Krishna Advani , Shri Nitin Gadkari and all the big leaders campaigned tirelessly but were ignored . Uma Bharti Ji was not even mentioned in some channels .

Lal_Krishna_Advani_Website

BJP believes in the theory of ” India First – Party Next – Self Last ” . BJP has no dynasty to safeguard . So they worked silently and tirelessly . From top leaders to ordinary workers all pitched in as per their capacity . Their sole aim was :

तेरा वैभव अमर रहे माँ , हम दिन चार रहें न रहें ……


Results came and all the Left – Liberal – Pseudo Secular intelligentsia , TV anchors and journalists got shock of their lives . I was watching various news channels and was amused to watch the faces of anchors .

Punjab :

===========

The state had history of not giving fresh mandate to the incumbent party . From 1966, when uni – lingual Punjab was created after its tri-furcation , no incumbent government came to power again . So it was pretty easy to predict that Congress would be forming the next government . So without any second thought Punjab was given to the Congress . All Pre – Poll and Post – Poll surveys were unanimous .

But the results were shocking for all . Out of 117 seats SAD [ Shiromani Akali Dal ] and BJP [ Bharatiya janata Party ] got 56 and 12 respectively . It is 9 more than the simple majority . Congress got only 46 seats , 2 up than the last time .

Uttarakhand :

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

BJP was written off in Uttarakhand . But in the final tally it got 31 seats  and Congress got 32 . Just 1 more and still media ranted about BJP’s rout . It is unfortunate that BJP got just 5 short of majority .  Shri Bhuwan Chand khanduri came just few months back and managed a miracle . Uttarakhand is missed by the BJP narrowly .

Goa :

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


Media showed some leniency as for as Goa was concerned . But they were willing to give BJP just 18 seats . 3 short of a simple majority . In the final reckoning BJP got 21 , absolute majority in the house of 40 . Its ally MGP [ Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party ] got 3 seats . So the combine’s seat tally is 24 in the house of 40 .

Uttar Pradesh :

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

World’s 6th biggest administrative unit Uttar Pradesh went through 7 phase elections . Mulayam Singh Yadav’s SP [ Samajwadi Party ] got absolute majority , though no one predicted it . According to Left – Liberal – Pseudo Secular intelligentsia , TV anchors and journalists , BJP was going to be 4th and Congress will be king – maker and SP will have to seek its support . Result is for all to see . With 224 seats SP got absolute majority in the assembly for the first time. So – called king – maker Congress got 28 seats , 4 more than 2007 elections .

Akhilesh Yadav

It is unfortunate that Uma Bharati ji’s efforts failed to give desired results . But consider some facts . BJP got 47 seats . 4 less than 51 , its 2007 tally . But BJP came second in 55 seats . One seat it lost by just 18 votes . Of these 55 seats many seats it lost by less than 200 votes . Had media not been so avers and instead portrayed true pictures , I feel results would have been different .

Uma Bharati Ji

Uma Bharati Ji

Manipur :

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

I am happy for Manipur . Mr. Okram Ibobi Singh won 3rd consecutive term . His victory augurs well for this tiny North – Eastern state . He got 42 seats in the house of 60 . Mr. Okram Ibobi Singh has managed 12 more seats this time than the tally of 30 in 2007 .

Okram Ibobi Singh

Okram Ibobi Singh

But architect of Manipur’s Congress victory is the Chief Minister and not the Nehru – Gandhi dynasty . It should be clear to Left – Liberal – Pseudo Secular intelligentsia , TV anchors and journalists that despite all the hype , all the PR exercise and all the orchestrated clamour that only Nehru – Gandhi family can save the nation , is appearing wrong . Mr. Rahul Gandhi worked very hard in Bihar in the last election and got only 4 seats .

Members of Nehru  - Gandhi Family

Members of Nehru - Gandhi Family

India belongs to nationalists . Whose credo is :

सज रहा है मात्रिमंदिर , मैं नहीं शोभा बनूँगा ,
और चित्रित भित्तिका है , मैं नहीं वह स्थान लूँगा ,
नीव का बस एक पत्थर , धूलि का बस एक कण हूँ ,
पूज्य माँ की अर्चना का , एक छोटा उपकरण हूँ ||

Corrected few errors.

Map of Indian States As Per Ruling Party's Colour

The saffron in the map will keep on increasing . There are 7 BJP Chief Ministers in India . They are in ; Karnataka , Goa , Gujarat , Madhya Pradesh , Chhattisgarh , Jharkhand and Himachal Pradesh . BJP is junior partner in 3 more states . They are ; Punjab , Bihar and Nagaland . BJP is main opposition party in 3 states , having its leaders as Leader of Opposition . They are ; Rajsthan , Delhi and Uttarakhand . It has got 114 seats in Lok Sabha and 51 in Rajya sabha .

Today Congress controls only 30.07% of total value of vote share for the President poll , which is coming in July . In spite of Dynasty being at the helm , they are in minority as for as presidential poll is concerned and media wont be helpful here. It is sheer arithmetic . 58 Rajya Sabha seats are falling vacant next month . Then Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh elections are due towards the end of the year .

Not winning in Bihar and now not so impressive show in Uttar Pradesh in particular and all the other states in general does not augur well for the dynasty . Sheen is gone . Shine will soon go away .

Maharashtra Municipal Elections 2012 : Congress’ Rout ; Saffron Juggernaut


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           FEBRUARY 24 , 2012           02.40 A.M.

Municipal and Local Body elections 2012 in Mumbai and rest of Maharashtra just got over and now process of installing the mayors and other office bearers are underway .  These elections gave some very startling and surprising results this time .

It was initially thought by left – liberal intellectuals / journalists and slowly it became general perception that this time the saffron front is facing rout . It was widely believed that in the ensuing municipal corporation elections in Mumbai the ruling front ; the Shiv Sena and Bharatiya Janata Party , is playing on sticky wicket . BMC [ Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation ] is the richest corporation of India . Its annual budget is bigger than the budget of some of the state assemblies of India . So these elections are considered prestigious and this time it was keenly watched .

English: Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumb...

Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation

In Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation , the ruling Front of Shiv Sena and Bharatiya Janta Party was in power for unbelievable 3 consecutive terms . Therefore the Congress and NCP [ Nationalist Congress Party ] came to conclusion that incumbency factor will harm the ruling front and invariably brighten the prospect of opposition front . It was also felt that MNS [ Maharashtra Navanirman Sena ] will eat into Saffron Front votes and thus going to deprive them of victory . But unseen hands of destiny had few shocker for the Congress and NCP this time also .

Shiv Sena patriarch Shri Bala Saheb Thackeray and acting president Shri Uddhav Thackeray , along with Mumbai BJP President Shri Raj Purohit and some other state level BJP leaders , devised some new strategies to thwart the freshly hatched game plan of the Congress and NCP of Sharad Pawar . Their ” KARUN DAKHWALE ” campaign was brilliant . They roped in RPI [ Republican Party of India ] headed by Shri Ram Das Athwale , in the front . So the joint strength of Shiv Sena , Bharatiya Janta Party and Republican Party of India [ SS , BJP , RPI ] fought elections unitedly and comfortably trounced the Congress and NCP front .

English: NiTin Gadkari - President of Bhartiya...

When results were declared , it became apparent that SS , BJP , RPI have got the maximum number of seats in Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation . Though they fell short of 7 seats , still they won the BMC fort . Congress , NCP alliance came a distant second with 65 seats and MNS [ Maharashtra Navanirman Sena ] , perceived to be king – maker , was third with 28 seats in its kitty .

Out of 10 Municipal Corporations of Maharashtra , BJP and SS have won 5 . These are ; Mumbai , Thane , Ulhasnagar , Nagpur and Akola . NCP of Sharad Pawar is the clear winner in Pimpri – Chinchwad . NCP can capture Pune , Solapur and Amarawati also with the help of Congress . MNS has won maximum number of seats in Nashik . But here are some more shocker .

BJP has won more number of seats compared to Shiv Sena  in Pune , Solapur , Nagpur and Akola , BJP has outnumbered Congress also in Nagpur and Ulhasnagar and has equal number of seats in Akola . BJP has outnumbered NCP also in Nagpur , Mumbai , Solapur and Akola . In BMC BJP has won 31 seats compared to 28 in 2007 . BJP tally has improved everywhere .

Sharad Pawar , known as Maratha warrior , Maratha strongman in Marathi news papers , have bitten dust . Other so – called NCP stalwarts and strong men like Dy. Chief Minister Ajit Pawar , R. R. Patil and Chhagan Bhujbal , both former Dy. Chief Ministers , have eggs on their faces . Supriya Sule has simply vanished from the scene .

English: U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodha...

Sharad Pawar - President NCP

It’s sheer luck that because of assembly elections in 5 states , Rahul Gandhi or Sonia Gandhi can not visit Maharashtra . So they have some face – saving excuses . But Congress Chief Minister Prithvi Raj Chavan , ex Shiv Sainik and former Chief Minister Narayan Rane and Mumbai Congress Chief Kripa Shankar Singh have nothing to say . So they have gone into shell . They are incommunicado and blame game has started .

In 2007 BMC elections Congress and NCP had no alliance and they fought separately . So according to some left – liberal journalists , SS and BJP won because of the division of secular votes . But in 2012 , Congress and NCP fought the elections as alliance partners and still they lost . SS and BJP have won convincingly . Now left – liberal journos have to eat crow . They have nothing to say .

Shri Nitin Gadkari and Shri Bala Saheb Thackeray can take pride that they have snatched victory from the opponents and that too against all odds . It is satisfying fact that MNS [ Maharashtra Navanirman Sena ] instead of eating into saffron votes , ate Congress , NCP votes and dealt severe blow to their nefarious designs .

Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation elections along with 9 other civic body elections of 2012 are eye opener in real sense . It heralds saffron juggernaut and decimation of pseudo – secular forces.

Bhopal Gas tragedy & The Congress


BHOPAL GAS TRAGEDY is the world’s worst ever industrial catastrophe and it happened on the night of December 2, 1984. 26 years after it happened, Bhopal Gas Tragedy has come to haunt the Congress once again. When this tragedy happened in 1984, Rajiv Gandhi was the Prime Minister of India and Arjun Singh was the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh. Centre and state both were ruled by the Congress. But now both are trying to absolve themselves of the sin and their culpability and complicity.

Let me briefly put few facts here. Warren Anderson’s UNION CARBIDE CORPORATION was given the licence to produce pesticides in their Madhya Pradesh factory. On the cruel and fateful day in 1984, a dangerous gas METHYL ISOCYANATE leaked and more than 15000 people got killed, and lakhs were maimed. Many generation later, people are still suffering from genetic disorder. 25 years after the gas leak,  390 tons of toxic chemicals abandoned at the UCIL plant continue to leak and pollute the ground water in the region.

Showing fake concern, government of the day swung into action but nothing happened. Few people got compensation and the case dragged on. Now the judgement have been pronounced and seven former officials of UNION CARBIDE were convicted and given a two-year jail term. But the main accused, former UNION CARBIDE CORPORATION chief Warren Anderson went scot-free.

Before moving ahead, let us ponder over few facts. Four days after the gas leak Anderson flew to Bhopal from MUMBAI ( then Bombay ) by an Indian Airlines flight. He was accompanied  by the chairman Keshub Mahindra and MD V. P. Gokhale. Bhopal DM Moti Singh and SP Swaraj Puri met them on the tarmac. Anderson and his colleagues were taken to the Carbide guest house in an official Ambassador car. They entered the guest house through the back door to avoid the waiting media. Inside the guest house they were informed that they all are under arrest. Soon a magistrate appeared and read the charges. They were charged of culpable homicide. At the same time Chief Minister Arjun Singh received a mysterious call and within six hours of his arrest , Anderson was a free man again . He was released on on a bail of Rs.  25,000.00. He was taken out of the guest house and was provided a state plane to fly to Delhi. Two days after his release, he boarded his private jet for the USA.

May I ask few questions ? Who was the mysterious caller ? Who can call and order the Chief Minister ? Why was Anderson provided a state plane in Bhopal ? Why no action was taken in Delhi ? And finally why was he not prevented from boarding his private jet for USA ? Now central leaders of Congress are saying that it was Arjun Singh’s responsibility. Can a Chief Minister act on his own when a tragedy of such magnitude happened ?

This is very brief history. So many youngsters were not even born then. Many people have already forgotten the BHOPAL GAS TRAGEDY and have moved on. But after the judgements, skeletons are coming out of the Congress cupboard. It is now alleged that Anderson was released under US pressure. It is alleged that Rajiv Gandhi called Arjun Singh and Chief Minister acted on his order. In my opinion under such circumstances a Chief Minister can not take decisions on his own. Even if we assume that Arjun Singh was acting on his own and Rajiv Gandhi knew nothing then the question arises : what kind of Prime Minister was ruling us then ? A tragedy of such magnitude happened and our Prime Minister knew nothing, did nothing !!

Rajiv Gandhi is hailed as the visionary and harbinger of a new era in India by his sycophants. God bless us and save us from such visionaries.
