How the Govt betrayed Baba Ramdev with empty promises..


If you want to know how the govt betrayed Swami Ramdev and then created an impression as if it had accepted all the demands, read this letter. Signed by Cabinet Minister Kapil Sibal, this letter was delivered at 11.30 pm on June 4, a couple of hours before the crackdown on peaceful sleeping protesters. The letter says nothing. It means nothing.

This letter contains only empty promises. It talks of commitment, which we all know is also there for Lok Pal bill that continues to be on the table for 43 years. It talks of govt's intention. Well, we know of govt's intention to feed the hungry. Even the Constitution promises to do that. Still, 64 years after Independence, 320 million people go to bed hungry. Despite the Supreme Court monitoring the food distribution, the number of hungry is only increasing. More than 70 lakh people (including children) die every year from hunger. India is worse than Sub-Saharan Africa when it comes to hunger. As per the Global Hunger Index, India fares worse than many countries of Sub-Saharan Africa.

What does the 'commitment' and 'intention' that the letter conveys actually means? It means that the Govt is not at all serious in removing corruption and bringing back black money.

What is still more tragic is that just two hours after this letter was delivered, police cracked down on peacefully sleeping protesters in Ramlila grounds in New Delhi. In my opinion, like 9/11 and 27/11, June 4 has to be remembered as 4/6.

Time has come...Congress to go..But what are the options..BJP/3rd Front...NO..We all are waiting for the party of Baba Ramdev..

Sorry but Baba is not suitable to be a politician unlike the quality is in Ac. Balakrishna. 3rd front is the best avl option, only need is UNITY with humility among the partners/ allies...All major states today boast of regional parties and so there is very chance of returning them to the Dilli ki gaddi. Nitish in Bihar, Jaya in TN, Maya in UP, Jagan in AP, BJD in Odhissa etc.

Support RTR law with which we can recall any govt any time and punish also..RTR itself will create fear because we can expel them from their job and so they will loose their salary and then can be punished so that he cant tamper proofs by holding position.It will be like a sword hanging on their neck...
.
Right To Recall is a Law and a process by which Citizens can expel netas or Govt. officilas if they aren't working for citizens. right now why neta log doesn't work for citizens because they don't have fear from citizens, when citizens will have... the power to expel ministers, `we sab line me aa jaenge`. USA has Right To Recall Law since 1900, this is the reason why US has less corruption than India.
