Provide relief and assistance to flood victims

Kashmir is suffering on account of heavy floods (70 thousand cusecs of water flowing through river Jhelum alone). Several villages have been washed off and the fields where rice used to be grown are covered with stones, sand and debris. Large number of people has become homeless and they are being evacuated. The Airforce is doing a commendable job in rescuing stranded people. Our defence forces always come to rescue victims during any calamity but our civilians must also respond in a similar fashion.

On Monday, we saw pictures of immersion, the celebrations are very good in happy situations. But when a large number of people are suffering in Kashmir, there is no need to indulge in high profile celebration and bursting loud crackers. A little restraint in the face of calamity is desirable. Lot of films have been shot in Kashmir with famous songs of films like “Jungle”, “Kashmir Ki Kali”. The film fraternity should organize charity shows to raise funds for helping the flood affected people.

Organizations like the RSS and Muslim organizations must come forward to work together for relief and rehabilitation instead of holding foolish discussions on the so called love jihad. In the film Barsat, Nimmi and Prem Nath never got married but at the end of the movie you will see Prem Nath carrying her in his arms for performing final rites. What will you call it, love jihad or belated realization of unconditional and pure love. “Tak dhinadhin.. humse mile tum , tum se mile hum..barsaat main”.

The BJP must stop fooling people and tread the path of virtue instead of getting it’s name tarnished in sting operations. There is no smoke without a fire. The saffron party cannot pretend to be very clean because after all it had spent massive money for Lok Sabha elections. My gut feeling is that if reelections are held in Delhi then BJP will fare badly.

The party needs to be very careful in handling the government formation and curb the urge of their office bearers to venture into horse trading on their own volition. Why defame the horses, they are sturdy and smart animals with great capabilities, remember “ Chetak” of Maharana Pratap? Friends citizen development is the topmost priority. I have been shouting from roof tops to impart training to electricians and plumbers and now we see the print of a lament from the “ Boribandar biggie”on the same subject. “ Kashmir hamara hai to hume unki madad karni chahiye , tabhi to hyadaya parivartan hoga”.
