The reason I would not vote for Congress

First, let me discuss things that I would do if I were to become PM
1. Uniform civil code.
2. Abolishing reservation of all kinds/ forms.
3. Urgent focus on Terrorism and Naxalism.


Now, lets come to the title of the blog... Why I would not vote for Congress

1. They are the biggest perpetrators of the divide-and-rule policy in this country... probably they inherited this from the British era. Be it V.P.Singh or Arjun Singh, there will always be somebody in the Congress to carry on the brigade of reservations. No doubt smaller regional parties do it too, but their impact is the same, 'small, regional'.

All the while that they chant about secularism, they would never dare to talk about uniform civil code in this 'secular' country. If they really care to bring the vast muslim majority into the mainstream, they need to bring them to a common modern day civil code. But No! Congress's self-interest favours the muslim voter to remain poor/ illiterate/ backward - So, they could not care less about social progression/ modernisation of the muslim society.

Just as the British, Congress's divide-and-rule is apparently for the benefit of the weaker classes.
I am sure if Congress comes to power they would enact the reservation bill and would never talk about bringing a uniform civil code in this country. Thats why I would not vote for Congress

2. I have not an iota of doubt in saying that Congress is ultra-soft on terrorism.
- Taliban is knocking at the door and 'honourable' Mrs. Gandhi says communalism is a greater enemy of the country than 'terrorism'. Does she even realise the magnitude of the danger India is facing from terrorism.

- Be it Mr. Antulay's remarks on the death of Hemant Karkare or the 'enquiry' into the Jamia Nagar shootout.... The Congress govt. has time and again insulted India's real heroes! (How could you doubt the integrity of your own special anti-terrorist squad's operations?? that too w.o. any legitimate indicators/ proofs??!! makes me gasp in horror!)

Here, I am sure that Congress would continue to be soft on terror.

I know we are short of good alternatives, but just wanted to put forward my views on why am I striking off Congress from the list......

Since past year or so, I have started hating Congress....

While I agree with some of your gripes against the congress.. i do want to take up a couple of key points.

I agree completely with Sonia Gandhi that Communalism is the bigger threat to India. I'd sure like you to define the 'magnitude of the threat posed to India by terrorism'

Look at it from the perspective of what constitutes a danger to the country.

Terrorism ... while ghastly and horrible for the people in the immediately vicinity ... lacks the potential to achieve any threat to the country's existence.

Worldwide, we've seen terrorism become effective only when it aligns itself with a community's misgiven feelings of ignorance and rears its head as communalism.

Terror strikes actually galvanize the nation against a common external enemy.

Communalism, on the other hand has the potential to tear the country apart... which is why the regional politics taking over the country are inherently dangerous.

We got the first glimpse of the possible ugliness in the Raj Thackeray Mumbai maratha pride drive. It was really just beginning to get ugly and guess what suppressed it .. the Mumbai attacks. Mr Thackeray HAD to shut up since it was the forces from Delhi that came in and helped and he knew the focus of his audience had shifted to an external threat.
