Andhra media anguish at AAP

If media can make or unmake a leader, Narendra Modi might not have reached Delhi, Chandrababu might not have stayed back in opposition for so long time.

If Aravind Kejriwal had not spoiled BJP’s revival party in Delhi, he might have been eulogised by saffron media as a giant killer.

If AAP willing to align with JP Babu, Chandrababu, he might have become hero for yellow media.

Today bosses of two Telugu newspapers, known for their quite opposite views, spewed venom on AAP and Aravind Kejriwal and it’s unfound milaakhath with Congress.

If media can make or unmake a leader, Narendra Modi might not have reached Delhi, Chandrababu might not have stayed back in opposition for so long time.

AAP blasted the nose of Congress at a crucial juncture and that too in the epicentre of Indian politics. AAP challenged old political establishment, gave confidence and gained the votes.

Every political party has their own media base today. Narendra Modi has his own media houses. Congress has its own. But only media cannot save a party. Leader, party and their credibility makes difference.

Media can inflame, incite and encourage, but cannot dictate the fate of politics. Who accuse that AAP is made by media can live in fools paradise.

  1. Petty Thieves or Party Thieves ?

    Arvind Kejriwal’s helpline produced 23,000 complaints against corrupt officials , within first 2 days

    And managed to arrest 2 constables trying to accept Rs 3,000 by way of bribe

    Some 60 + sting operations are under way

    Similar help lines are being installed in Goa , MP , Rajasthan and Chhatisgarh

    ( BJP walking in the footsteps of AAP ? )

    Can such efforts to curb corruption, produce results ?

    Yes , if what China’s Central and Provincial governments managed to achieve in just 11 months ( Jan – Nov 2013 ) , is any clue

    Here are some statistics released by Supreme People’s Procutorate :

    > No of ” corrupt ” govt officials investigated ………….. 36,907

    > Total number of cases ………………………………….. 27,236

    > Major / Important cases ……………………………….. 21,848

    > Cases involving ” Losses ” ………………………………. 16,510

    > Amount of Losses …………………………………….. Rs 566 crores

    ( – peanuts compared to our scams totaling Rs 5 LAKH CRORES ! )

    Communist Party’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection reports :

    > Investigation and Punishment of party Officials ……… 182,000

    > High level officials facing legal prosecution …………. 8

    ( – including Zhou Yong Kang – a former member of Politburo Standing
    Committee – equal to an Indian Cabinet Minister )

    If our Democratic System is superior to China’s Dictatorial System , we ought to do better !

    In China , a Politburo Member cannot be ” Voted Out ” by people

    But , in India , we can !

    I hope the 543 sitting MPs and 5,000+ sitting MLAs of India realize that they will get voted out in April 2014 , if they fail to act against the corrupt – and do it fast

    People calling Narendra Modi , a ” Dictator ” have no clue how angry Indian voters are !

    For them , a dictator who rids them of corruption is a better choice than the so-called democrats who couldn’t care for 4,383 children ( under age of 5 ) dying EVERYDAY , due to starvation !

    Voters know that Rs 5 LAKH CRORES could have saved these children !

    They don’t care for Freedom of Speech that cannot bring Freedom from Hunger !
