Honestly, it would be a great sight if he were to become the Finance Minister, run down the economy to the ground with his Stalinist economics, and wait at the doors of the IMF with a begging bowl. But it is my country and it can’t be allowed to happen. Thankfully, Karat’s dream would remain his own and the electorate would give him and his folk the boot. Even in Kerala and Bengal, they are headed for miserable numbers and it won’t be surprising if the CPM falls apart under the weight of the rubble of the drubbing they are about to receive. In the worst case scenario of the CPM being offered one and half berths in the new Cabinet, he could induct Pinarayi Vijayan, who could be trusted to negotiate a decent deal with some Canadians or so, so that there is enough in the coffers for the party and the comrades, which would keep the folk together in the short term. This corrupt, hot-headed dispensation at the helm is the worst the CPM had had in ages and the voters are about to pronounce their judgement on these self-appointed guardians of wisdom.
Get out of the way of this nation, you red-shirts, in the great march that has begun. We will make it without you and will be happy for it.
These Communists are such a bunch of losers. Bad ones too.
I would rather go for Varun than idiots like Karat. Whatever Varun said, while uncivil or discourteous, was not wrong as such.
You need to see why some Hindus, generally quite tolerant, say such angry things.
There have been centuries of murder and mayhem that Hindus have faced at the hands of aggressive Muslims and Christians. When Hindus see the same nonsense go on even now, at times the anger spills out.
You may argue that some Muslims and Christians have been good citizens. Well, what is the big deal? Especially when you look at how many of them have gone the other way. (All J-K terrorists are muslims; 70% of Naxals in Orissa and all Naga seperatists are Christian.)
The greater issue is of equality and justice.
Who asked for partition?
Who gets away with murder even today in J-K?
Which community is a refugee in its own country? (Kashmiri Hindus)
Why is it okay for missionaries to go around bad-mouthing Hindu culture when Satanic Verses (critical of Islam) gets immediately banned?
Some Hindus think enough is enough, and Varun looks good to them.
People are not half-dead brain lost with their half-brain lost to dead foreign ideology. At least, we're cured of this disease after seeing 50 of this disease unleashed from Nehru's litter and enjoyed by blood suckers like you.
This is not for coming elections. You're good for nothing forever. Get lost and find some third-grade foreign dictator who'll allow to lick his stinky ass.
