One of the oft repeated television advertisements by the Congress presents a man declaring — “Na main Hindu hoon, na main Mussalman, na Sikh, na Ishai, main ek Bhartiya hoon (neither am I a Hindu, nor a Muslim, nor a Sikh nor a Christian. I am an Indian).” Does this mean a religious Eendu, a devout Mos$lim, a pious $ikh or churchgoing Khristian cannot be a proud Indian too? Does it also mean that to be a true Indian you have to be an atheist or a man without religion? Why does the Congress think there is a difference between a true Indian and a religious Indian? In that case the red vermillion pastes that Mrs SG and Rahul publicly sport on their foreheads and Manmohan’s widely publicized visits to gurdwaras all efforts to fool the Indian public? Aren't all sickular persons hypocrites?
If you guts vote Congress again, then you will only have yourself to blame this time.
Its common knowledge, that the Congress and some senior unelected bureaucrats have planned to get rid of LTTE in Lanka. There plan has work to certain extent, but like in all great game- some very serious issues has just crop up.
In trying to destroy LTTE, they now have somehow strengthened Tamil identity everywhere, and the demand for Eelam seems closer with the defeat of LTTE than when LTTE was at its peak.
The Congress aim was to blunt the creation of Eelam because of some outdated fear that Eelam will re-awaken the Tamil identity in India.
Things move in ways nobody expected. The problem with that line of thinking is that Raj has re-awakened the Marathi identity and unknowingly the Upite and Bihari identity, and also the Kanadiga has been building their identity for a while now. Biharis are wondering where it all when wrong for them regarding development compare to other states, and why their language is not a recognized language(s) for a state of 80 million plus.
And further, the situation in Nepal will create a dilemma that will eventually led to shout of bias by the Tamils.
Congress while covertly helping the Sinhalese, maintain that India cannot interfere into another nation internal affairs. The Chinese has now use that to test India, if India interfere in Nepal- TN will cry foul- and if India does not interfere in Nepal- UP/Bihar will get agitated.

All Tamils supported the creation of Bangladesh. Tamil soldiers of the Indian army fought for the creation of Bangladesh. When the creation of Bangladesh did not lead independence demands in West Bengal, how will the creation of Tamil Eelam from Srilanka will lead to independence demands in Tamilnadu? Why does Congress support Srilanka which supported Pakistan against India during the Indo-Pakistan wars? Because, the congress is not just anti-tamil, it is anti national.
Our country is an integration of different languages, races and cultures. So long as you understand the emotions of your fellow races and respect, this integration will not suffer. Try to understand…. 1. when Assamees say that there is illegal migration ….understand that it is their soil and is being encroached. 2. North east is always neglected…..accept and accommodate them in mainstream 3. When sikhs are driven away from Swat valley…understand our sikh brothers’ concern about them is genuine. 4. When Gorkhs of West Bengal ask for autonomy….go in depth why they demand such a thing when all Indian states are treated equally? 5. When NRIs are affected……. feel they are our brothers and we need to help them 6. When Sindhis and Punjabis are attacked in Pakistan …try to understand their misery 7. When Telengana is demanded … see why it is happening. Are you not aware Andhra is born out of fast undo death only?. 8. When interstate water dispute emanates try solve without bias 9. See whether all states have got their due in development or not. 10. When your Govt in Delhi and Noida cannot run bus service between Delhi and Noida…. ponder what is going wrong. 11. Finally if any people of Indian origin achieve something great in foreign countries we jump in joy and all our media flash like anything……..but when they are in problem we never mind them…..what a fantastic mind set we have? Keep away the mind set that India means Hi
How can he claim that congress is responsible for this war?? this war is between the tamils and sinhalese, started long time back. Yes, the LTTE blast off Rajiv Gandhi - that's a fact. I don't think congress party is sending it's party members to srilanka to fight. Just because the LTTE failed they are blaming the congress. Bad political strategy on LTTE's part!! If congress government is giving Srilanka money then come out with solid proof insted of just allegations.
