We all remember that Manmohan Singh had said, minorities have got first right on national resources. Every decision that Sonia and Congress led UPA has taken has been a step towards not only dividing but also forcing the Hindu family towards a slow and painful death. Have you ever heard of a Muslim farmer committing suicide, asks Sandeep Singh
Sonia and Rahul Gandhi want to win this election based on one agenda i.e. BJP is a divisive party. While in reality it is the other way round. Sonia and Congress led UPA has from last 10 years implemented every trick in the book to divide Hindu family.
By restricting the number of gas cylinders one can use and continuous hike in fuel, Sonia Gandhi led Congress and UPA created rifts in the family, rift between husband and wife; each accusing the other that he or she is not optimizing the uses and hence more expenditure in the family.
Not only this when state governments tried to provide relief to the people from their end, Sonia Gandhi led Central Government stopped them from doing so.
Following is an example of the same:
The Centre itself does not have capacity to provide adequate gas cylinders and moreover, by rationing the gas cylinders, it compels people to buy gas at high prices from black market. Gujarat has laid 2,200 km. high pressure gas pipeline at the cost of Rs.5,000 crore, as well 8,000 km. low pressure gas pipeline also at the cost of Rs.5,000 crore. Besides, about 10 lakh LPG connections have been given to the households at the cost of Rs.1,000 crore with partnership of government and private companies.
Cooking gas is being provided to about 350 villages and cities of Gujarat at the cheaper rates compare to the Centre’s cylinder gas through the gas grid. This amounts to a saving of Rs.600 crore for the Centre in the form of subsidies. But since there is BJP government in Gujarat, the Centre keeps political enmity & has snatched from last two years the state’s right of laying gas distribution pipelines.
If Centre allows Gujarat to lay gas pipelines, the state government would be able to give 30 lakh cooking gas connections in the state in next three to five years. This means that Gujarat alone can save 30 lakh gas cylinders every month for the Centre. This amounts to saving of 3.6 crore gas cylinders every year, and benefits of billions of rupees to the Centre exchequer, which would otherwise be used in giving subsidy.
Creating a rift in the family, society is a way of politics called divide and rule. This is something British did and Nehru-Gandhi dynasty followed it. Keeping the tradition alive Sonia, Rahul led Congress/UPA has tried their best to put obstacle in the path of Narendra Bhai’s initiative. If there is no fight in the family then government fears that families will discuss the state of society and country.
In its drive to create problems within the family, Sonia and Congress led UPA has not spared the students. The standing committee of the high-profile National Monitoring Committee for Minorities' Education (NMCME), a high-profile body under the HRD ministry, recommended reservation for minorities in institutions like IIMs, IITs and the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade.
Now just think, about Hindu family; parents work overtime, cut down on basic happiness like ice cream or going to movie to save money for their kids coaching fee. As if this is not enough; kids are forced to sacrifice the basic rights (Sonia and Rahul keep talking of all kind of rights!!!!) like playing, watching TV etc. and forced to run from school to coaching to study table. The childhood has been snatched away from the life’s of Hindu kids. Families have been left neither with time or money to spend to spend on themselves.
The UPA Government has directed that all minority students admitted into 70 top institutions of India like IIMs, IITs etc will get their total fees paid by the Government but Hindu students, whether leftist or Rightist, whether North Indian or South Indian, whether member of NSUI or SFI or ABVP have to pay their full fees. If a minority student decides to join any coaching centre to prepare for admission into colleges or Public service examinations or jobs in government and private sectors he gets total fees of coaching centre paid by the government.
In a full page advertisement in the Hindustan Times, February 18, 2010 the Ministry of Minority Affairs informed that Rs 20.75 crore was released for free coaching of 14,966 minority candidates during April 2006 to January1, 2010.
When Hindu kids grow up they face discrimination in jobs on the basis of religion. The share of minorities in central sector jobs:
• Increased from 6.9% in 2006-07 to 8.7 % in 2007-08.
• It increased from 7.6% in 2006-07 in the financial sector (Banks, FIs, RBI) to 10.2%;
• Increased in the Armed Forces from 5.5% to 8.9%; and
• Increased in the Railways from 2.7% to 6.3% during the same one year period.
In a full page advertisement in the Hindustan Times (February 18, 2010) the Ministry of Minority Affairs claimed credit for increasing trend in recruitment of minorities in government and public sector undertakings from 8.23 per cent to 9.18 per cent in 2008-09 as a result of the UPA guidelines.
It may come as total surprise to many Hindus that there are many posts under the Government which are paid out of taxes collected from we Hindus but a Hindu howsoever liberal or Marxist he may be, he is legally debarred from holding such posts such as posts of the Chairman of National and Provincial Minority Commissions, Principals of St Stephan’s Delhi (and similar minority institutions running into thousands and thousands all over India) etc. Section 4 of the National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions Act 2004 passed by the Manmohan Singh Government stipulates that only persons from minority communities shall be eligible to be appointed as Chairman and members of this Commission. Hindus have been totally excluded.
It is not easy for a Hindu to become even entrepreneur. On March13, 2007 the then Finance Minister Chidambaram had told the Rajya Sabha that of the total priority sector lending, loans to minorities had increased by 33 per cent to Rs 45,490 crores on March 31, 2006 as against Rs 34,654 crores when the UPA Government took office in May 2004. In a full page advertisement in the HT, February 18, 2010 the Ministry of Minority Affairs informed that Rs 2,31,223 crores was advanced by public sector banks to minorities under the priority sector lending during April 2007 to December 31, 2009.
And we all remember that Manmohan Singh had said, minorities have got first right on national resources.
Every decision that Sonia and Congress led UPA has taken has been a step towards not only dividing but also forcing the Hindu family towards a slow and painful death. Have you ever heard of a Muslim farmer committing suicide?
