Every major city in India has been attacked consistently over the last two years.Since 2004, 3850 Indians have died in Terror attacks in over 3000 incidents.
Is the common Indian on the streets really safe ?

Did you know that on the day of the Mumbai train blasts, the
Government gave Rs 150 crores for earthquake relief in Pakistan ?

year our Govt. has given Rs 3000 crores (600 Million Dollars) to

This, when victims of terror in India have not yet got
aid? What’s going on?

B) Is this Government really secular ?

1) When Madrasas are being shut down in Pakistan, the Indian
Government is giving them CBSE status !! It is depriving Muslim
children in getting secular education. A Madrasa educated person can
get a job in any government office without going through the secular
education system. Can India afford to have fundamentalists in
government departments? Why cannot the government shut down Madrassas
and let Muslim children study with the rest?

2) Our Government has given 25 lakh scholarships ONLY to minority students.

What sin have the majority done not to deserve these?

Why cannot poor students of all communities be given scholarships instead of only Muslim children?

3) Thanks to the Congress led Government, out of 36000 temples in
Andhra Pradesh, 28000 have closed down in the last five years. Do you
want the same trend to continue in other parts of the country? Do you
want a Nagaland type of situation in the whole of India? While
government controls most of the Hindu temples, the minority community
has had full freedom to organize their religious bodies. The minority
communities now have the first right over resources. Is this not a
blatant violation of fundamental rights of the majority community?

4) Why have the minorities in Nagaland, Mizoram & Kashmir not
got the similar privileges like the minorities in other states? Why is
the Govt following different rules for different religions?

C) Is this government really making friends or enemies for India ?

Thanks to a weak and visionless foreign policy, India has created
enemies all around. By the Home Minister’s own admission : “India is
surrounded by a circle of fire”. Rajiv Gandhi’s vision of a powerful
“SAARC” is now defunct.

1) Today, India commands little respect from all its neighbours, despite being the largest democracy in the world.

2) Terrorism has engulfed the country from inside and outside. Of
course Pakistan,the motherland of international terrorism continues to
be a big threat.

3) China has territorial ambitions on India.

4) Nepal, is now being headed by a Maoist government and is
ideologically more aligned to China. While India helped to dismantle
the dynastic rule in Nepal our own Government surreptitiously supports
dynastic rule within its own party.

5) Myanmar is increasingly aligning with Chinese forces with huge Chinese investments in that region.

6) Indian Policies in Srilanka have made Tamil Nadu burn. Will
Tamils ever forgive India for encouraging military assault rather than
facilitating peaceful dialogue on their north and north east regions.

7) Bangladesh continues to repeatedly aid and abet terrorism.

D) Is this Government really pro-poor?

The number of people living below the poverty line has increased by
a horrifying 20 per cent. India had some 270 million people below the
poverty line in 2004-2005, when the present Government took office.
That number has gone up by 55 million, or 20 per cent!

E) Does this Government really care about the nation?

The Pakistani flag is now being hoisted in five districts of states
like Assam where the Muslim population has gone up significantly. 92000
Hindu and 6000 Christians are now languishing in refugee camps. The
government has turned a blind eye to this.

In the name of security, innocent people have been put in jails,
whereas people like Yaasin Malik who has 23 murder charges on him, are
moving Scot free and gathering their own strength. Is it acceptable to
any patriotic Indian?

Can the Congress led UPA promise a non-muslim CM in J&K ?
Reservation for a Hindu student in Nagaland ? If so, we wholeheartedly
support them. Otherwise they should sit at home the next few years and
rethink their policies.

Can our politicians stop stooping down to any lengths just for
money and power ? Like Mr.Sharad Pawar, who first ditched the Congress
and then ditched the people and aligned back with the Congress, just to
be in power.

Don’t be deceived. What appears to be communal is not communal, and
what appears to be secular is not secular. It is time we change our

Having said all this even BJP has not proved to be any better.
But for now we need a change. Let us choose the lesser of the two evils.
The same party brought to power again and again means encouraging unabated corruption.

Stand up for this most tolerant and ancient civilization and
prevent this great nation from becoming a communal battleground. As
citizens of India we must vote for change.

“And as per the CAG website (Controller Audit General of India)
more than 50,000crores rupees has gone missing from the Govt. Treasury”
