A tale of two governors

Posted on: January 31, 2011

In the BJP-ruled Karnataka, governor Hans Raj Bharadwaj and chief minister B.S.Yeddyurappa are at loggerheads with each other, the former having sanctioned prosecution of the latter and the chief minister demanding recall of the governor.
In another BJP-ruled State, Madhya Pradesh, governor Rameshwar Thakur and chief minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan are having the best of the times by looking after the needs of each other. What Chauhan needs is praise for having done “good work” in the State and governor Thakur was extremely generous in showering on him this praise in his Republic Day speech.
Some examples: the farmers have suffered massive losses because of the cold wave and I am happy to point out that the government has taken effective steps to deal with the situation; Madhya Pradesh is marching forward to becoming the “energy capital “of the country; Madhya Pradesh has taken the initiative, which deserves to be emulated by others, to check corruption. So on and so on.
On the eve of the Republic Day, the State cabinet at its meeting presided over by Shivraj Singh Chauhan, approved the Governor’s discretionary grant from Rs 5000 to Rs 50,000 and enhanced the Raj Bhavan budget from Rs 3 lakh to Rs 30 lakh.

Value of propaganda

Adolf Hitler believed in the use of propaganda as an integral element to seizing and holding on to political power. His maxim was 'the bigger the lie, the more easily it will be believed, provided it is repeated vigorously and often enough'. (Sean Murphy in his book 'Letting the Side Down')
