Anna Hazare says that he won’t contest the elections simply because Indians “vote for booze and money.” The Indian Express, Delhi edition, has given front page coverage to that statement of Hazare.
I am an Indian and I have never voted for booze or money. I voted according to my conscience, as dictated by my political awareness, l
ooking forward to no benefits other than what the society could have gained by my vote. I think I should take Hazare to the court on a defamation charge. Defamation of the Indian citizen.
But I won’t do it. Because the Indian judiciary may take a bribe from Hazare’s followers and put me in prison (LOL, is that it?)
They will put me in Tihar Jail where I will meet many of Hazare’s friends or at least quite many political leaders like Bangaru Laxman (the latest addition to Tihar Jail). (LOL, is that it?)
Is Tihar jail becoming a home to politicians? Will prisons become similar to 7-star hotels in India? We, the ordinary citizens of India, shouldn’t be surprised if they do. When you become as old as Bangaru Laxman, it’s good to have the govt taking care of you in a 7-star prison. There will be no family members to take care of such people who were frauds all through their life. So, are the jails being converted into resorts for politicians?
Will I meet Anna Hazare in one such prison in future, I wonder, he arrested for fraudulence and me for questioning it?
That’s a doubt, not a statement. Just a possible possibility. A potential possibility aroused by Hazare’s statement that all Indians vote for booze and money. A man who makes such generalised statements about a whole country of over a billion people should be a fraud or an idiot. Who are the people that Hazare met in his life, the people who prompted him to make such statements? Arvind Kejriwal? Kiran Bedi? The people of Ralegan Siddhi? The thousands who supported his movement with candles in hands on Delhi’s corridors of power? Who else?
Dear Mr Hazare, I would like to sue you on this one statement alone, on your statement that I as a voter am a drunkard and bribe-receiver. I drink sometimes. I buy that drink with my hard-earned money. I drink in order to wash out the waste that frauds like you throw into my backyard on and off. An Aristotelian kind of purgation. I have not accepted any bribe from anybody so far and I won’t ever. And yet you call me, a voter, a mere boozer and thief. What kind of a leader are you? Are you a fraud or an idiot (like many, too many of our politicians)?
