Readers Voice on Jairam Ramesh’s comments and idol-worshipping in our democracy

I can understand an ordinary person with hardly any education indulging in a loose talk while gossiping at a “Paan-Bidi Shop” with friends at the corner. A Union rank minister making such irrational comments about Narendra Modi or even Rahul Gandhi only exposes his deficit in academic thinking.

What is this logic? If Narendra Modi loses in 2014, he will be history?

And Rahul Gandhi even if Congress gets defeated in 2014, will still be around? Does this make any sense especially coming from a senior Congress Union minister?

In a way he is right. Because what else Rahul Gandhi can do?

With his family name that gives him all the power and perks and with many like Jairam Ramesh, Digvijay Singh, Kapil Sebal, Sushilkumar Shinde, Rajeev Shukla, Ajay Maken around him to serve his ego, why will he and his family be not around for next 100 years? Is anyone so foolish to give up what is there to enjoy without any moral or official responsibility?

Who says there is no free lunch in the world? Here it is, not just free lunch but free breakfast, Lunch and dinner too with free stay?

Where as Mr Narendra Modi is still on the responsible job of Chief Minister of his state Gujarat where people of Gujarat have given their mandate three times to administer the affairs of Gujarat. What does Rahul Gandhi have to go back to ? The free power that comes with his family name to enjoy without any responsibility and the constant worshiping by people like Jairam Ramesh and Digvijay Singh who make such hollow characters look important without any substance.

Yes he has every reason to be there for the rest of his life. Why not?

In this election campaign one thing that prominently emerged … all of senior Congressman including the Prime Minister are worshipers and sycophants of one family. In a democracy like ours this trend can not be promoted, supported and appreciated simply because it can promote healthy democracy. It is NO good for the nation and this submissive, sub servant style of thinking, and working – this finally leads to an autocratic rule and a threat to Democracy.

Our Freedom fighters haven’t fought for independence of India to worship Rulers.

Look at the way.. senior Congressmen in the media react. Janardan Dwevedi: Do not dare to call Shehezada. we can stop it in two days? ( Clear threat) Digvijay Sing: RSS operates like Taleban? Modi`s place is in the jail? He is like Hitler and murderer? ( He is procecutor and judge too) Gulamm Nabi Azad: Modi is a Gangu Teli? (on Modi`s Teli cast ? The castiest remark on the community ) Raj Babbar ; Modi is not even fit to be Chowkidaar? ( He forgot Modi is a CM ) Jairam Ramesh: Modi is like a FROG? Some Congressmen called him: Bhasmaasoor? Yumraaj?

Are these matured politicians or enjoy positions because of their worshiping?

These remarks are publicly made by Senior most Congressmen in front of TV cameras. And the most honest, simple, soft spoken gentleman Dr Manmohan Singh approves his senior ministers to use such unparlimentary, slum language for an elected head of the state? Can Dr Manmohan Singh be called honest? Is he also not a part of these worshipers when he says… I am ready to work under Rahul baba ?

What is it? Worshiping or sycophancy?

Do we need worshipers, sycophants who promote dynastic rule? The old Raja Maharaja culture? The princely states where you have heard of court jesters entertaining kings, queens and prince and princes in their Durbars? Are we going back to “Jee Sarkar” “Jee Raje” “Jee Yuvraaj” ” Aap ka Hukum, aap ki marji …culture ? Are we still having the same old mindset of Jee Hujur? What kind od slavery is this ? Get out of this slavery, please.

But for heaven`s sake, Stop messing around with the Democracy in this country.
