Beware of Pravasi Votes

via By Synonymous published on July 30, 2010

Conditions are getting very favourable for the introduction of Pravasi Voting Rights (PVR) in the very near future. UPA is exploring all options to wreck Indian democracy in all respects and with the appointment of a new Chief Election Commissioner, PVR looks a certainty in the very near future. As most Pravasis are from Kerala, it will be the state most affected by the introduction of such an unwise move without much debate and deliberation. Political correctness is preventing any of the major political parties from speaking the truth and a weak .BJP in Kerala is also keeping quiet. Everyone is interested in Pravasi money and a majority of Kerala politicians have some business connection in the Gulf.  IUML/NDF/PDP/JIH combine with their vast number of sister organizations in the Gulf have been cleverly manipulating the political atmosphere for this purpose for a long time now. Syrian/Knanaya/Orthodox Christian outfits in the West are also doing their best.
As of now almost everything in Kerala is dictated by the influence of Gulf money and Rubber money. With the introduction of PVR, the situation can turn completely out of control. Anyone can underestimate the clout of foreign money only at their own peril. Malabar will definitely turn into a backyard for the Gulfians (which will also include Arabs) and Central Travancore will be at the mercy of Western influence. The most affected will be the local bodies like Panchayats and Municipalities. Ward members in Kinaloor, Ponnani, Thalankara etc., will be decided on the basis of Pravasi votes from GCC countries. And those in Thiruvalla, Ranni, Konni, Idukki etc., will be decided in Italy and Germany . A major part of God’s Own Country will become the holiday home or ranches of the wealthy Pravasi crowd, who have no permanent interests.
After the passing of the Panchayati Raj act, the local bodies are highly empowered and they can give approval for activities and projects, all in a legitimate manner in their own discretion, that were unimaginable earlier. Now we can easily estimate the extent of damage such approvals can bring about in our society. All educational institutions and healthcare facilities in villages and towns, including recruitment and control of staff, are now being entrusted with the local panchayats and municipalities. The situation of external influence in places where the Pravasi and Pravasi related population is significant can become pathetic. Just as an example, the issues in Palestine , Iraq and Kashmir will dominate the panchayat elections in Malappuram district more than their real legitimate requirements of drinking water or electricity or tarred roads. The rest can be imagined.
