Kashmir is facing widespread violence and unrest after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) militant commander, Burhan Muzafar Wani. The PDP-BJP government led by Mehbooba Mufti has been saying that only 5% are arsonists and 95% are good. They love peace, then why the government is not mobilising at least half of these 95 per cent to confront the arsonists. Why only police and Army have been deployed for restoring peace in Kashmir? The government must ask citizens to perform atleast one year national Service. Citizens must be made strong, self-reliant and proud not only by lifting the flag but by effectively countering the trouble makers. RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat had issued a statement asking Hindu couples to produce more children. He had made the remarks while addressing an event in Agra as part of his four-day stay in the city to interact with groups representing various social strata and professions.
Bhagwat has no idea about what he is speaking. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had criticized Bhagwat and said that he must produce 10 children himself and also bring them up. On the other hand, Shiv Sena said that Bhagwat’s statement is outdated and the government instead must think about implementing uniform civil code. Sena added that Bhagwat’s comment won’t be accepted by the Hindu community. The party said that if Hindus produce more children then the country will witness problems like rising unemployment, malnutrition, rising school drop-out rates. RSS must stop becoming the remote control of the government. On the other hand, Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said that Bhagwat relies on religion and what else can be expected of him. Physical and skill development of citizens must be their sole aim, agenda, if our nation has to progress.
If I say, how well trained are our people, then I will be exaggerating. Imparting training to youth is vital in all fields like sports, technology, agriculture etc. The more we pay attention to this aspect our nation will achieve faster progress. The civic body must repair the potholed roads and make them motorable. Nowadays citizens keep on protesting over insignificant issues in the metropolis. They must agitate about not being trained excellently for road repairs and fortification of bridges. They can urge the government to build more swimming pools in Mumbai. Citizens must protest for having good playgrounds in and around the metropolis. On the other hand, onion producers of Nasik are suffering due to poor support price for the produce and non-existent preservation methods like cold storages. The ministers and officials must take steps to resolve this issue so that farmers will get better price for their produce.
