    Glad Day ?

    Yesterday , I wrote about “ Sad Day / Bad Day / Mad Day “ , not knowing that by evening , it will turn into a “ Glad Day “ !
    “ Glad Day “ for 2 reasons :

     Late in the afternoon , in a press-meet , Rahul Gandhi said,

    “ My opinion on the ordinance is that it is completely nonsense and it should be torn up and thrown out. I personally feel , that what our Government has done as far as this ordinance is concerned, is wrong “

     Supreme Court said,

    “ The voter has the right to negative voting by rejecting all the candidates in the fray by exercising the option of ‘ none of the above ‘ in the EVMs and ballot papers “

    Now only if the politicians ( whether clean or tainted )

     dare to meet the people of their constituencies

     care to ask them what are their further “ Expectations “

    voters will tell them , ( Citizen’s Charter of Demand ? ),

     Scrap the ordinance / bill pending in the Standing Committee. Based on Supreme Court verdict , prevent convicted MPs / MLAs from attending Lok Sabha / State Legislatures

     Scrap amendment to RTI Act , which keeps the political parties outside its purview

     Accept all donations / contributions to a political party by cheque only ( irrespective of the amount ) and display these on your web sites , along with quarterly statement of all expenditures

     Display on your web site complete declaration ( financial as well as criminal ) of each candidate / elected MP / MLA , filed with Election Commission – and every year , if elected

     Pass the Jan-LokPal bill ( Anna Hazare version ) before the 2014 elections

    By owning-up the “ mistake “ committed by UPA Government ( as far as the Ordinance is concerned ) , not only Rahul Gandhi showed unprecedented moral courage ( could be political hara-kiri ? ) , he has silenced / disarmed his critics and won over millions of young admirers

    If only he continues to display similar “ Courage “ in respect of what I have listed above , I have no doubt , on its own , Congress will win 300+ seats in the 2014 National Elections

    Rahul,
    Remember , your “ Pre-Poll Actions “ on the ground will send a powerful “ Message of Hope “ to the disillusioned / frustrated youth of India

    Neither Narendra Modi , nor Arvind Kejriwal will be able to match such a challenge !
