President's rule required in Karnataka
by Sundaram on May 18, 2009 09:02 PM  | Hide replies

My friends in Bangalore tell me the power situation is so bad that every 10-15 minutes the power supply snaps and it takes a minimum of 4-5 hours before it comes back to snap again. People are simply fed up. The irony is that if does not rain, it is a handy excuse for a power cut. At the same time, if it rains heavily, again, the power supply is cut off to prevent transformer short circuits & bursts. President's rule perhaps is a better solution as the present administration has failed its people completely in the power sector. Mind you all the power cuts are without any prior notice.

Are you not aware that the Congis have already entered into a Nuclear Deal with the US? They will give you power from tomorrow onwards.

but JGN, sundarm is talking about Bangalore, where where BJP is the epicentre of power today. you talk about tomorrow, what about today?
It seems you are shattered with the outcome of election - sorry no chance in the near future if you carry on with LK Advani.

Appreciate your cynicism. No, the President will operate thro' advisers who will figure out what is the root cause of the problem and come up quick-ly with workable alternatives like borrowing power temporarily from ad-joining states. At the most, you need this borrowing just for a month or so ahead, by when heavy rains would natu-rally come in. Being cynical is quite easy, my friend-thinking slightly deeper to solve an existing problem faced is the difficult part.

All it requires is a bit of proactive thinking and borrowing power temporari-ly from adjoining states that are sur-plus in power or can spare power. You can always draw power from the nation-al grid. Do you need to be a Nobel prize winner to do this simple act, instead of snapping power without any notice every 15 - 30 minutes ? Any problem can be solved so long as you are willing to apply your brains.

Every time it starts raining heavily in Bangalore, the authorities switch off the power supply. Why ? Is it because the technology of power distribution dates back to previous century ? You do not see this happen-ing in any other state, like Maha-rashtra, Tamilnadu etc. Why don't the concerned people think in terms of underground wiring at least for new areas ?

ask what a gujrati feels about Modi???. If they did not liked him they wouldn't have voted him back to power. Development all what matters for people. Not loose talks...

Critical Decission to be done by Congress
by Em Pee on May 18, 2009 07:21 PM

There are mix reactions from me.
1.am sad bcoz NDA lost,
2.happy bcoz third front (cpm, mayawati, mulayam, lalu) lost & now they do not have say in important decission in future governance. i literally had nightmares of having mayawati/mulayam as PM & taking decission to ban computers, english, spreading regionalizm, & finally breaking the country. oh my god, i am relieved.

Congress at this juncture feels proud to be near that majic figure & the last two days they are just trying to show that they require none.
Dear congress, i know you people are smartest of the lot in politics., you can do whatever you want., but pls understand the situation has changed over years.

The best you can do is get mulayam & mayawati handy in the government but on your terms., that way DMK & Trinamool do not use negative tactics such as asking more portfolios, ministries etc., so get the free birdies in & get them working for your government instead against!!
my second wish is UPA work on few important projects which is NDA 's dream!

a. National highway
b. River linking across India
c. Uniform civil code (all as one, equality)(no religion based law, no caste, men-women having same rights etc)
d. one kid norm (this is my wishlist)

i assure you that if you do just these four things, you will have all the urban/educated voters in your kitty.

Please take responsible decissions, which should strengthen India in future & our generations to come should appreciate your party!!

Now that the congress has the right mix of seats, MMS should focus on nation building and lowering the corruption...
Its an opportunity for MMS to fix many issues..the first is to make sure there is right talent important ministries in Cabinet..

Only Positive Outcome
by imran patel on May 18, 2009 06:38 PM  | Hide replies

I for one do not see a huge difference between the governing principles of the BJP and the the CONG (I).

The question is not "Who will govern Better ?"..but the real question is

"What is the role of government?"

No political party or politician will answer this question. They will want to govern everything. This is what gives them POWER.

The only positive outcome of this election is the rejection of the Communist party by the people of WB and Kerala.

This is a step in the right direction. Just a step though!

The other positive outcome of this election is that all the gundas and blackmailers like Laloos and Amars have ben shown their place. Just imagine there was atime when Congres would have ben willing to spend hundreds of crores on getting support of these rogues and blackmailers and now we have a happy situation that these rouges may be willing to give hundreds of crores to buy a berth in the Congres ministry. Kep them all out Mr Rahul Gandhi.
