THE GANDHI FAMILY
India, land of 1.2 billion people for most part in his history since independence has been ruled by just a clan, a single family that is Gandhi family. Some have the utmost respect for them but some say they have been nothing more than disgrace on the face of this beautiful nation. From Gandhiji and Jawahar Lal Nehru to Rahul Gandhi, this family has taken to politics as their family business just like it was centuries before. M K Gandhi or Gandhiji did a lot for this nation and no one can deny it, but he was the reason the catalyst of our Indian freedom Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev were hanged. It is also rumoured that there were some secret documents about Gandhiji which could have damaged his reputation so they were destroyed. We can believe all this is false because he was a true Indian. But not our first Prime Minister J.L.Nehru.
It is believed that that Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel was to become the Prime Minister but Nehru imposed some conditions which could have harmed the nation and brought back the britishers . SO, Gandhiji asked Patel for a favour and he obeyed. It is also said that the enmity between Jawahar Lal Nehru and Subhash Chandra Bose was of such extent that Nehru could have been behind Bose’s mysterious death.It’s because of Nehru’s policy of granting special status toKashmir,it has been always on the boil.
After Nehru was his daughter Indira Gandhi. A bold and valiant fighter. But do we all know why emergency was imposed in 1975? It was because she won election by crook and when Allahabad HC was about to give it ruling to declare the election void, she imposed emergency. She was not at all bothered about its impact on country, on the people just for the sake of power.
Then came Rajiv Gandhi after the assassination of his mother. He became a bunny at the hands of bureaucrats and was a culprit in BOFORS deal. Now, Sonia Gandhi who people believe left the post PM, but the truth is a person born outside India and who got Indian Citizenship later cannot be Prime Minister. Still she’s the virtual PM and have not we seen some great developments? 2G, 3G, CWG and many more. The party led by Gandhi’s has been in power for almost 55 years and have not been able to bring poverty levels below 35% in 60 years. They couldn’t get electricity to half of the country let alone makingIndiaa superpower. They have been too selfish and it’s in the genes and they can’t help it.
BJP, on the other hand have done a bit more but not much in their limited tenure. But Congress has just not done enough. They are not serious about anything whether its bomb blasts and scams. In these scenarios, there ministers are busy changing clothes or saying “Bade bade sherhon mein aise choti-choti baatein hoti rehti hai”. I am not anti congress or Pro BJP. It’s the common man who get affected by these things and not them and they do everything to get rid of anything that posses hindrance in their path of making money. Whether it’s Kapil Sibbal, P Chidambram, Slaman Khurshid they are all the same, and in the end it all reaches 10 Janpath.
