A sick joke!

Posted on: August 15, 2011

Shivraj Singh Chauhan had, during his first term as chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, written to eight non-Congress chief ministers including Parkash Singh Badal, Nitish Kumar and Mayawati telling them as to how to protest against the Centre’s alleged discrimination against the non-Congress-ruled States.
The childish antic of an upstart chief minister is one thing. What should one say when the entire cabinet comprising veterans like Babulal Gaur, Kailash Vijayvargiya, Jayant Malaiya and Sartaj Singh acts in a similar manner?
The cabinet adopted a resolution on August 9 urging the Centre to hand over to the State government the ten National Highways passing through the State because, the cabinet felt, the Centre was not properly maintaining these Highways. The resolution specifically mentioned that the State government would maintain these Highways from its own resources.
What about the State roads? Petitions are pending in the Madhya Pradesh High Court and the Supreme Court seeking directions to the State government to repair the roads which are in a very bad state almost all over the State. A resident of Kondrigaon village in Sultanpur area has written to Leader of Opposition in Parliament Sushma Swaraj reminding her of her promise made on the Raksha Bandhan day last year that she would ensure repair of the road leading to the village. A year has elapsed but “your promise” remains unfulfilled and the road condition has become much worse, Surat Singh Banjara has written in his letter.
The State Human Rights Commission has registered a complaint about the Bhopal roads which are full of potholes causing frequent mishaps. The complaint was lodged by a class eleventh student of Jawaharlal Nehru School (Bhopal) on August 5, four days before the cabinet adopted the farcical resolution.

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')
