Celebrating our Independence day

We should definitely be happy in celebrating the Independence Day as we have achieved lot of progress even though lot of work still needs to be done. RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat had said that all people living in India are Hindus which is unjustified and his statement has been politically motivated. The question which arises here is whether leaders must make these unwarranted remarks instead of saying that Indians need to get adequate clean drinking water, unadulterated milk for public health, construction of toilets for rural women, enough fodder for the cattle, good and free primary education for all etc. Both TDP and TRS are fighting for room no 5 in the parliament. TRS MP K Kavitha has made an irresponsible comment over Hyderabad and Kashmir’s forced merger into India.

Today our leaders are supporting FDI in almost all sectors. We have been unwilling to learn and work and most of the people don’t want to perform physical work. However, it is a good sign that we have realized our mistakes but now we want foreigners to come, teach us the skills and technology so that we become proficient. The duty of the government will be to ensure that we, Indians, learn work and not manipulate in a way that the foreigners work and we relax. We have to provide employment to our youth. It will improve many aspects, especially, the attitude of our citizens. To start with, there was reservation for SC and ST but now it has been extended to OBC too. Further, even the categories like Dalits and Mahadalits was introduced but not a single day passes when we do not listen about agitation in support of some reservation or the other.

The most important job of the government is to curtail the population growth and speedily implement citizen development programmes. The need of the hour is to improve the citizenry. RSS may be doing a good job but during my recent visit to the Nehru Vatika at Aliganj, Lucknow ( where RSS has been holding shakha for decades), I found only one pair of swings working. The floor nonetheless was raw with stones protruding, hurting the feet of the kids, slides worn out and broken dangerously. Nobody is bothered to get it repaired inspite of the fact that they collect Rs 5 per person. I will like the learned courts to take cognizance and force the government to immediately start a population reduction scheme before it becomes uncontrollable.
