The years of UPA'srule is a veritable study of faux pas one after another, the first and foremost being taking the common man for a ride. Instead of providing ?him? with a platter, he was made an object on a platter to be devoured by the ever-widening jaws of inflation. The almost five-year rule of the UPA government was marked by most brazen form of appeasement and vote bank politics bordering on utter disrespect for the majority Hindus. The ones who jeopardised the security of the country had a field day?the most favoured being Afzal Guru, the man who dared being part of the conspiracy to attack Parliament, the sanctum sanctorum of our democracy. Instead of sending him to gallows, he was made an object of respect by the UPA government, all for appeasing minority Muslims for their votes. After the demise of this government in the coming elections, the most befitting exclaim would be?good riddance.
The rule of the political formation called UPA, led by Congress, came into being on a grandiose slogan?Congress ka hath, aam aadmi ke sath. It is a common knowledge what befell the common man during the UPA rule. The inflation was at all-time high, pushing the common man on the precipice of starvation and suicides. There was unprecedented flurry of farmers committing suicides due to double burden of loans and price rise. The much-touted hath was not with aam aadmi but with profiteers and hoarders. While the native farmers ended their life in ignominy, the government tried its best to give preferential treatment to foreign farmers through import of grains.
Apart from reneging on the promises of giving succor to aam aadmi, the UPA'srule was one of sacrileges one after another perpetrated on the majority Hindus. No one would disagree with the fact that Ram Sethu is an article of deepest faith for the crores of Hindus across the globe. This is a fact even most diehard of so-called secularist Congressmen and communists will not deny, but UPA had the guts to think of putting this mythological bridge constructed by none other than the supreme Hindu deity Sri Ram under hammer. To appease the coalition partner DMK just for staying in power, the government not only tried to demolish this bridge of faith but went to the extent of denying even the existence of Sri Ram through its affidavit in the apex court of the country. Seeing the outburst of Hindu outrage at this most brazen act of playing with the religious sentiments of crores of Hindus, the government had to beat a hasty retreat. But such was the naked exhibition of sacrilegious intent that this divine structure would certainly stand demolished if at all this formation comes to power again. So now the onus of protecting this sanctimonious construction is shifted on the people of the country. The Hindu voter of this country would do a great service to this ?edifice of faith? if they erase this formation?UPA? from the face of political landscape. To negate Sri Ram is a blasphemy, no true Hindu can tolerate it.
The Amarnath Shrine controversy should prove to be the last nail in the coffin of the UPA'smisrule. This controversy once again brought into open with the unholy alliance between the so-called secularists of the country and the separatists that ruled the troubled state of Jammu & Kashmir. The state Congress government at the behest of central government did not think twice to hurt the sentiments of crores of Hindus when it revoked the land, which was given for the facilities of lakhs of Hindu pilgrims, who go to this holy shrine. All are aware that this was done on the promptings of separatists who are hell-bent on handing this state over to Pakistan. The aftermath of Hindu upsurge in Jammu after the government'soutrageous order is proof enough that Hindus were hit where it hurts the most. Compare this attitude of the government with the grand treatment given to the Haj pilgrims and one will understand the enormity of indifference to majority Hindus in this country. It is really the height of minority appeasement.
Remember the famously said line of the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh: ?The first right on the resources of the country belongs to minorities of the country.? Does this leave any doubt about the worst form of appeasement? There is no denying the fact that the central government has indulged in this unseemly act by doling out sops with an eye on the minority vote bank. The government'sspecial order for loans to the minorities surpasses all limits of constitutional propriety?and think of it that this was UPA's?doctrine of equity?! Add to it the religion-based headcount in the army. These rabid appeasement moves would no doubt ruin the communal harmony by sowing the seed of enmity between the majority and the minority.
The list of faux pas is endless. The crowning appeasement was when the PM said he lost his peace of mind and sleep to see the weeping of a mother whose son was booked for his alleged connection with terror net. The government'sutter indifference to security of the country is reflected in the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai. The terrorists were so much emboldened by government'sfriendly treatment to Afzal Guru that they laid siege to the financial capital of the country. We would see more of such terror attacks because the terror net has spread in every nook and corner of the country due to UPA'sterror-friendly tactics. So voters of this country have to make a firm deecision in the coming general elections to make India strong and asserting in the face of terror onslaughts, not a banana country like Pakistan.
