Recent poll results-A natural Hindu reaction

via H.Balakrishnan published on March 14, 2007

Ever since the Congress returned to power in Delhi, its policies and politics have gravitated towards restoring its old vote banks. Blatant appeasement of the Muslims has become an article of faith for the party, and this was first reflected in the reservation of five per cent seats for Muslims in Andhra Pradesh. Even though the courts have held communal reservations to be unconstitutional, the party has insisted on going through with the measure. This was followed by a sinister campaign to extend the benefits of reservations to ‘Dalit’ Muslims and Christians.Finally, an old lackey of the Congress was used to prepare a report on the state of backwardness of the Muslim community so that the government could use this report to initiate special measures for uplifting the community.


The least middle-class India expected from Dr Manmohan Singh was intellectual honesty, a clean government and progressive policies. But what they got in return is a man who openly declares that one particular community has the first claim and right to the resources of the Indian State.


All sorts of special schemes are being initiated to give sops to the Muslim community. Jumping on to this band-wagon are of course the Communists and other casteist leaders,who are exhorting the Congress government to go even further in appeasing the Muslims.


At the same time, the old virus of reservations has been resurrected by this government. As it is an education cess is being extorted from the tax-payer to collect more resources for education. Now this cess has been increased, dealing a double-whammy to the ordinary citizen.


 Not only does the hard-working middle-class family face the prospect of their children being denied a fair chance to get a decent education in IITs and IIMs, they are also being forced to subsidise the education of other people’s children.  This will be the final nail in the coffin of the productive class of people of this country.


Somewhere in the back of the minds of the people these factors would have certainly affected urban voting behaviour. As the Congress goes headlong into its appeasement policy, it will create a natural Hindu reaction. Urban Punjab has shown that. But our ‘secularists’ will continue being ostriches! The Nation be damned.
