Oh congratulations Murali you have such vast knowledge about African
history. thanks for enlightening us. what do you know about the recent
happenings in your neighbourhood? looks like immediate past is something
elusive for u and you can recall very well from the history books. some
ability i must say to cite this example twice.
Modi's own party members are regretting the fact that why he was not sacked
after the post-godhra riots. what do u have to say to them? how do u
accomodate Vajpayee's sleepless nights during the mass murders in Gujarat?
If Sonia Gandhi is to be blamed for accepting Leopold's order, this man who
is not only responsible for the most deadly riots of my time, has also
managed to advertise the MoUs of the industries which have backed out of the
investments in Gujarat. what do u have to say about that? there are zillions
of proof against his government fudging the actual investment figures of the
vibrant gujarat and use it as an advertisement to promote gujarat as an
industrial hub. worse, the golden corridor for chemical industries
(districts such as Valsad and Bharuch) is so polluted that the government
has stopped any kind of expansion. the common and final effluent treatment
plants in all the industrial estates have not been following the Gujarat
Pollution Control Board norms since the day it started functioning. where
are the safeties to set up anything in Gujarat? or is he being awarded
because most of the industrialisation is unregulated with Environmental
Assessment Report not being prepared and you say industries popping out of
I frankly do not mind our leaders being awarded. its an honour but at least
in the past people who were really worthy of making changes in our society
have been awarded by various organisations.
Sonia having accepted the order of Leopold requires no proof as it is
universally known. Mass murders and Genocide in Zaire is also a known fact.
By accepting the Order of Leopold, Sonia had to sign register signing
unquestioned loyalty and alegiance to the king of Belgium, which is
against the constitution of INdia.
