First, it was Sushma Swaraj.
Next, Vasundhara Raje.
The saga of Lalit Modi—which tars politicians of every feather who are connected or who communed with him—continues.
Meanwhile, the former cricket administrator gallivants the partying world enjoying the immunity granted him by his erstwhile familial and political allies.
The Congress and its allies have promised to disrupt parliamentary proceedings seeking removal of the BJP matriarchs.
Narendra Modi and his cohorts came to power on the back of NaMo’s version of “It’s the economy, stupid” promising “acche din” and good governance.
While the NDA government enjoys a majority in the Lok Sabha, it is not so in the Rajya Sabha. The Congress and its allies rule the roost there throwing a spanner in the works of any new bills forcing the Prime Minister to promulgate ordinances instead.
Narendra Modi would be well advised to give his constituents what they deserve and let the cards fall as they may. The Gujarat strongman is not to shirk from doing what’s right. Swaraj and Raje should be asked to resign.
The previous government had one of the worst records on parliamentary business conducted. A similar fate should not befall this one.
All appearances of impropriety should be investigated and guilty parties penalized.
Narendra Modi should preside over “acche din” and not merely be the “King of Good Times“.
What he said:
“Politicians have keys to open doors which others do not have.”
Dr. Farooq Abdullah is sanguine about the role of politicians in sports administration.Abdullah has headed the Jammu & Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) over 30 years. He was quoted responding to media queries following Dilip Vengsarkar’s loss in the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) elections.
What he really meant:
“Yeh hai India, meri jaan, where politicians feel it’s their birthright to have their fingers in every pie.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“Dilip would make a wonderful chief minister.”
