What is Reality Mr PM?

via Dr Mrs Hilda Raja published on June 30, 2010

It is a special lingua that the Prime Minister speaks when he stated: ‘What is reality? We are not hiding anything”. This is in reference to allowing Anderson to flee the country after the world’s worst industrial disaster. Are we a nation of fools or is Mr Manmohan Singh trying to cover the tracks of Rajiv Gandhi and think that reality is what he states.

The Group of Ministers who looked into every aspect did not find any documents to fix the culprit. Were they empowered to fix the culprits in the first place or was it a whole cover up exercise and to drug the people with some palliatives. Secondly all the Congress leaders who were the GoEM found what they wanted to find. So the documents allowing or the consent to let Anderson flee the country disappeared. May be there were no files on it because all this was done in zero time and the Centre as well as the State was cautious enough not to leave any track. Third we need to believe that these documents were secreted away or done away with. Fourth that a government can function without leaving any trace or documents of its decisions All the above stated options no matter which is “the reality’ point an accusing finger to Rajiv Gandhi.

Why is Manmohan Singh bending backwards to hide the reality-which he simply cannot. Because no matter what he thinks of the people we are not fools. The one and only factor by which the Congress can redeem itself is to apologize to the people in general and to the victims of Bhopal in particular. This is the least it can do if it has an atom of integrity and honesty still left. The whole world  knows that Rajiv Gandhi is at fault-and that is the reality.

It is difficult to comprehend what the PM means when he stated that his government will “try to ensure that the US takes a more favorable attitude” towards the extradition of former chief of Union Carbide to stand trial in India in the Bhopal gas leak case-Warren Anderson . What is this more favorable attitude? Instead of calling a spade and spade and state that India demands that Anderson be extradited to stand trial in India -this is necessary to uphold justice.

Instead the PM is revealing his soft policy towards the USA by using a vocabulary that only shows India ’s subservient mental makeup. So lets keep ‘trying’ for the USA to change its attitude to a more ‘favorable’ one to extradition of Anderson . Reverse the whole scenario-‘reality’ and hypothetically imagine what the USA would have done if this happened to it. First the culprit would not have left its shores-second there is no question of trying to change the attitude of another government in demanding that the fugitive be handed over. Should we not then put in place a Group of Empowered Ministers to this task of trying?

Shame on the Congress and the PM for its total let down of the poor-the aam admis.
