This refers to the statement of H Anjaneya, Minister of Social Welfare, Karnataka, on ‘Cow-Protection’ in Kannada Daily, Udayavani, Bengaluru dated 30.11.2014, page no.6. On reacting to the plea made by the' Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha' Karnataka, that total cow protection should be imposed in the country by NDA-2 led government, he stated that his government (Cong-I) will not agree and implement the same. He claims that beef makes a food for a section of the people ,which happens to be in minority and cow slaughter cannot be banned, which will affect their interests. In that case we also claim that by slaughtering cow,organic farming will get affected, upon which majority of the population is dependent. By making such statement Anjaneya has defied Article 48 of Indian Constitution. It is deplorable and shocking that people like Mr Anjaneya who are totally ignorant of the things, which make the lifeline of the mankind, are made Ministers. Cow and its family is the backbone of our country’s agriculture scenario upon which our economy is based.
Recently there has been lot of talks and news reports in the media about bringing back illegal money stashed away by rich and influential Indians in Swiss banks. The UPA government pretended to be making sincere efforts while all the time they did nothing for bringing it back.Why go so far to Switzerland?The government should also unearth the black money which is spend on elections,selling and buying real estate, taking bribes for each and every transaction in every sector and evading taxes etc.,the list is endless.Unpatriotic Indians , illicitly rich are inside our own country. We should check them too.
SHANTA DYUTHIKAR, 39, 15th Cross,
Cowardliness beyond limit
Files containing vital information relating to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose cannot be disclosed for fear of displeasure of perpetrators, presumably the hunters of our magnetic hero of India’s Freedom Struggle, so desire to know about him , we are advised by our elected government to burry in cave of bad hope. This is a matter of great shame and extreme cowardliness, equivalent to a concubine’s fear of cranny in the boundary wall of loyalty of a paramour. Are we so spineless nation that we cannot preserve , protect and honour our patriots who dedicated their lives for country’s freedom? I doubt the reason behind such motive maybe revelation of facts in the file will demean the reputation of other agitators of freedom. And it will affect their enjoying benefits from generation to generation.That is why corruption , dishonesty and deceptive attitudes of the rulers after rulers have increased degree by degree. No government have any will to satisfy the nation’s questions like how its patriots had been cheated.Unless we give deserving honour to our true soilders we will remain downtrodden slighted by worthy persons of the world.
