Very educative, I would say. All said and down however, wherever there is a question of safeguarding the interests of nation, it should be a preferred area on our part. And it should be but natural, that while doing so, individual party interests should be sacrificed. After, we singularly and together belong to the only Nation, ie. India. Division on the lines of religion, caste, creed, region or geographical reckoning should always be un-welcomed ; I firmly believe.
If the BJP ruled states believe that competitive bidding will result into the higher input cost of coal, which is a fact, why are they making so much noise now. Whether it is telecom or coal, the government cannot look at the profit alone. The BJP cannot have a policy for the state it rules and one for the centre where they are in the opposition. I am eagerly awaiting for the telecom auction.
Alternate energy is surely a good option. But they have their own hurdles. Wind energy and solar energy are costly and the cheapest form in Nuclear energy is unsafe according to a section of the society. As to Gas I still dont know as to why the government is lethargic. May be the government is interested only in short term remedies than a long term one. It had always been. Interlinking of rivers will give a boost in hydro power, which is cheaper and long lasting solution, but then so may states will fight tooth and nail against it.
In short we don`t think as one nation. Rather we are not allowed to think so.
You are right. Both the ruling and opposition take avoidable pleasure in first giving a quick volley of question and then back track. As for the red signal to competitive bidding by states like Orissa, Jharkhand etc, they had pleaded that any competitive bidding will result into input cost of coal and squeeze the profit margin and its other resultant effects. In one way, they were rightly placed. But, there is no doubt that, coal was rigged - out and utitilised by the private operators/companies.
At the same time, it is surprising that, for all these decades, we continue to depend upon conventional sources of energy / coal while we are already left with fewer coal reserves/mines. In the light of this, our government should explore this area ; wind energy, solar energy, examination of gas wherever this area can be tapped both for domestic and industrial use. Rain water is another area which has vast potentials for meaningful usage.
Did you read the comments of Mr.Advani on MMS statement on COALGATE or even Arun Jaitely? They don`t reply as to why the BJP lead states were against competetive bidding then? I am lead to think that BJP is fast turning themselves into defense witness.
It is not only that we have a bad ruling party but a bad opposition party too. The BJP act first and then only think. They make too much noise. That won`t take them anywhere, atleast where they want to go.
Tum peekay to nahin likh raho ho?Out of a good PM or anybody all-round good comes for every body.Also a man good or bad is first recognised by his friends close to him.Look at the near ones of MMS and their activities and decide.
He should leave the PM post and politics gracefully.He is being used by Italians ,Indians and others.His departure may save this nation from a man-made calamity and unrest.The unease of AamAdmi is visible.
MMS was never a grassroot politician and failed to gauge the career politicos who think scam even in dreams. He did not have the political power,skill and bile to contain the crooks that are part of UPA.That does not excuse him of the huge responsibility that comes with the post of PM he has taken upon.He being a professional beurocrat seems to believe all works well as per rule-book,in political field opposite is true. So either you are clean or a present day politician you can`t be both.
