Post 26 / 11, Our snail paced politician have actually moved a step as a reaction to the terror attacks, although it is very early, highly optimistic and pre mature to decide whether the step taken is in fact a forward step or a step towards solving the persisting and ever increasing terror / security problem; sleeping politician has moved at last. But doubt still hangs around about the speed, their consistency, intensity and most important ‘their WILL’ to take action with which they geared up to counter terror.
Steps taken: Move to pass New terror law in parliament, praised security guards, political super model (in changing clothes) resigned along with state CM and deputy CM of Maharashtra, though resignation was not a voluntary act, Opposition supported framing of new law and finally country’s new Home minister took up the responsibility of lapses in intelligence
But do these so called leaders think they are on right path?
Well, although me being an aspiring politician, I beg to differ with this present herd.
My main question is - why these failed and looser politicians are given easy way out of resignation at every event? When we citizens commit a crime, be it even a minor negligence, we are criminally prosecuted and if our negligence is repeated and life threatening in nature, we are even sentenced to jail. So why these junkies, who take responsibility of country in most casual manner, are not been criminally prosecuted for failing in their job repeatedly (in fact repeatedly is also a mild word for their act)? Their resignation is just not the answer or solution to the mess created by them. It is imperative that they should either be force to clean the mess, with accountability or they should be treated as criminal for failing in their job and attracting punitive action. Mr. Shivraj Patil is the worst person in the job of internal security and because of his negligence or inability or whatever, we suffered 23 attacks in 4 years. Although it is rightly said that there is no answer to terrorism and no government has foolproof plan against terror, but failure on 23 occasions isn’t it way too casual and insensitive attitude towards country citizens, by just having his resignation what are we achieving? Yes incapable idiot is out of his job, but what about the loss he has already made? H would still be having security from NSG commandos. I again ask WHY? WHY? WHY he is let off so easily? I am of the opinion that our former home minister should be convicted, charged and even hanged, as according to our constitution we have a provision to prosecute a person, who have harmed / killed person even if the act is not intentional. Mr. Shivraj has killed thousands and made country loose crore of rupees, made environment such that FII’s are driven away from the country by his sheer incompetence, so why this &%#$*** is not charged and scattered into pieces. He should be hanged even before Afzal guru (convict for masterminding parliament attack), as Afzal is not directly instrumental in civilian casualty in last 7 years after he is sentenced to jail, as against Shivraj, who has broken all records of killing people when actually he was holding position to save and secure Indian citizens. Similar treatment should be given to all the other politician under whose regime there were terror attacks, they could be given benefit of doubt in maximum 1 – 2 attacks, but even after that if there is no sign of improvement, politicians should be charged for lapses in work resulting into mass life threatening danger, and there should be special courts with no mercy petition.
I guess this should be the first step towards positive beginning in tackling terror. Accountability backed by punitive action is the solution for having responsible and citizen fearing government.
