Politricks...But Rock your Vote!

On 18th  November, Thiruvananthapuram goes to poll for the Lok Sabaha bye-election. This one is to fill the void created by the death of P.K.V a wonderful man but a rather useless M.P.
A person can’t even take his nap peacefully now. The blaring cacophony of the speakers screaming at the people to vote for his candidate. In the end the public says, “Ok! Ok! We will vote, will you shut that bloody thing off?”
It is almost comical the announcement jeeps of two candidates coming from the opposite directions and creating one hell of a noise and in the end it almost seems like this.
“Vote for the Sickle…vote for Sivakumar”
”Remember the symbol for Sivakumar is…the poor proletariat!”  
“React against the atrocities committed by UDF…So vote for UDF”
“Remember Indian National Congress is a party that helped India achieve independence…So please vote for the sickle…and don’t vote…on the day of the polls!”
Now let’s see the candidates. First of all V.S.Sivakumar of I.N.C. He is the former M.P who lost very badly last time. He is an advocate who has never seen the corridor of any court except may be Karunakaran’s courtyard. A real political eunuch. Spineless to be precise. He made a lot of money during his tenure by his liaison with Airport Authority of India by accepting bribes for arranging temporary jobs. Believe me these temp jobs are worth some 15k per month. He left his mentor Karunakaran on the lurch for an M.P ticket and a possible ministerial position. I am not going to vote for him personally. And his party INC is a gang of gung-hos. The decision to vote against Iran for some menial help from U.S is simply unforgivable. They alienated a long time friend and jeopardised the energy supplies for the next 30 years. Unforgivable offence.
Now for Pannyan Raveendran of C.P.I. The guy with most probability to win. A man of clean character. But that is not what matters here. It is said that he was engrossed in party work and wasn’t interested in parliamentary positions. If he worked hard for the party then congratulations Mister! Your party has some 20 members in it now from being the second largest party in Kerala. I would have to be born atleast a couple more times before I vote for communists. I was tempted to since my parents are going to vote for him anyway. The last straw was the announcement that left would work for trade unions in the IT sector. These people want to destroy whatever prosperity our country has gained. They lack knowledge about the sector and narrow minded (in fact closed minded!)
The third main candidate is C.K. Padmanabhan of B.J.P. Not much chance of winning but at least he is B.J.P. I may probably vote for him given my right libertarian political stand. But I am pissed of with the national leadership for the infighting and even the state leadership. Imagine fighting inside a party which has not yet made the mark in the state!
Those who are in Trivandrum please vote. If you don’t care about polls and you are an engineering student then shame on you. You study with the money of the people  (unless you are on a payment seat like me : - ) ) and its your obligation to vote. So rock your vote!

Hey dude!!!!!111 y the hell shld 1 vote? Now a days, my main hobby is 2 read their wht do u call..."Prasthavanas" or some s**t like tht.. Felt like sick!! Sivakumar has been claiming of everything frm the vizhinjam port 2 nedumanguad-ponmudi highway,frm habitat center 2 civil station!!!! u know wht happened 2 habitat center..it was inagurated...done nothing. personally,iwld die bfore voting 2 this asshole!!!!
Next is pannyan...my family's vote will b 2 him but i am not sure abt him. Although naru may b rite abt his character,the main prob. is tht 1 man alone can do nothing. how can any1 trust a party tht supports congress in center but is the sworn enemy in kerala!!! this is just propoganda,and wht i call "Dirty Politics". These guys want 2 have traid union 4 IT proffesionals!!! Yeah and 2 think tht IT firms wld accept it!!!! I mean ,OK there is hard work 2 b done there...but they r paying us handsomly!! I personaly believe tht working in an IT firm gives us much more job satisfaction than in any Govt. Company.(except firms like VSSC,DRDO etc.) Besides, there is no reservation based on any bull s**t criterions. if u r smart, ur work is appriciated.
And 4 the Iran issue, India is now having 1 of the most weakest Govt. I wld say. They r supporting US in hope of getting some F-16's b'cause pak is getting some frm US!!! Yeah, F-16 is a great war machine,but guys, it was made on 1986!!! 20 years old technology!!!! even US is replacing F16 with Boieng's X-20 fighter plane. A plane tht can do the work of 5!!! thts wht boieng says... Now, there r many new fighter planes in arena,leading the list is France's Mirage 2005!!! and Russian Mig 25. They have offered us a free upgradation 4 25 yrs. and also complete spare parts whenever required. US has offered us none!!! infact v need 2 manufacture those spare parts in INDIA itself!!!! So i think it is high time tht India re-considered its alliance with US .

There is a site where you can find what your MPs do when they open their mouth in Parliament:http://164.100.24.219/rsq/pq.htm
If you cannot get to this, just google for indian parliament questions.

If you look through it, you would see that we right now have 18 screwballs who open their mouth to ask purely rhetorical questions about WTO, Liberalization, and stuff like that, labor laws .. Panniyan would at best add to that count, or at worst, not open his mouth. Voting for him is the worst that you can do in this election.

panackal said...

I think its better not to vote for Pannyan.. bcoz there is no question abt giving ur votes to that shit communists who want our country to crawl as in the 1950s so that they can get more votes by saying abt all that blah blah trade unions!!! Now CPM is the chief opposition in the union always forcing the govt to rule by their policies or else threatening to withdraw the support... better give it to congress or BJP...

Rockus said...

Communists Suck and there is no question about it. But the question is will people vote for BJP? People should set aside their petty psuedo secularism and embrace the changes.
@puthiyaviplavam thanks for your excellent comments...
and guys thanx for commenting ...luv ya

Congress govt did the right thing by aligning with U.S on the Iran Nuke Issue. The Newly elected Iranian President is an Islamic fundamentalist. India should be nuts to agreeing with his Nuclear ambitions.. vadi koduthe adi vaaganda kaaryamundo Indiakke...
Things were differnt during Khatami. Iran was a good friend then.
I congrats the congress govt for having the guts to correct its foriegn policy with Iran, ignoring its communist allies.

Arun said...

hahaha BJP!!!
I hope they realised that they are not meant to be a force in Kerala!

And for all u shitheads who voted for the jobless Commies, i pity u!
U might have won, but ur vote has gone for a toss!
ok, of the 20 odd LDF MPs from kerala in the LS, how many do u know by name? How many do u hear on tv or in the news, they are just sitting ducks !
it is gonna be the same with Pannyan!
thatz why u shd have voted for Sivakumar, at least he would have represented the Union Govt!
Losers, Lets call this Dog's (Commie's) Own Country!
Suffer!

LI said...

Whatever be the result of election everything in Kerala still remains same?The tall claims made during the election speeches has always been like lines drwan on water.Only Malayalis are to blame for the state of Kerala

naveen said...

Hey arun,mature up!!!! u vote 4 sivakumar??? tht bloody @$$ hole??? he is good 4 nothing!!! in a party lead by a damn forigneor lady who dosent know the ABC's of India. she is sitting there b'cause of rajiv gandhi and nothing more!! i wld rather vote 4 a swathantran than vote 4 congress. and,how many MP's frm congress do u know??? ellam kallanmar!!! tht puthiya viplavam has made a good point...just visit tht site given by him and u will know how much shit is filled in their head!!!

Babin said...

For your information Naveen, Sonia Ghandi is not the prime minister of india. Manmohan Singh is, and he is doing a damn good job as PM. BJP calls him as spineless, since they don't have any other acqusations to make about him. There is no one better for his job in india than mms himself. India dosen't need another kalla polititian as pm.. what india need is a prime minister who understand the need for economic and institutional reforms and who can implement those reforms in the best possible way. MMS and PC combine is the best recruits for this job among any political parties in india. They will do this job better than anyone else even with leftist idiodic opposition.

As you said, most MPs are kallanmar irrespective of party lines. But atleast in congress, the guys and girls in the top are honest. this is true for both central and state government

Rockus said...

COngress Honest!!!???
The bastards are the worst thiefs, barring MMS and Chidambaram.

naveen said...

Hey babin, sonia might not b the prime minister,but it is a fact as clear as day tht MMS is just a puppet in her hand let me ask u 1 thing. wht is her eligiblity 2 lead the UPA alliance?? she has never contested 4 any elections before and i think tht she may not even had voted earlier!!! then how the hell did she became leader of congress??? think abt. it babin,afterall,v r the future of this country,and v cannot tolerate these idiots ruining our aswell as india's future!!!!!

Babin said...

Rockus, congress may not honest. Then again, no political party in the history of this earth can be called honest. Associating honesty with a political party is a definite oxymoron.
Well the question is if they are the worst thief or not? They may indeed one of the worst in the past. But during the present political scenario, They are the best among the pack, at least in my point of view.
Congress and its progressive secular nationalistic political view point is best suited for a diverse country like India. Congress and India need each other. I seriously think national disintegration is one of the biggest threats facing India in the next 25 years. Immature political leadership from any parties will materialize that threat the soonest And my biggest concern is BJP; without the leadership of mature politicians like Vajpayee and advani, it is essentially a narrow minded fundamentalist party (no better than Taliban) waiting to take India down with it. I can only hope that BJP will find mature replacements for advani and Vajpayee without bending towards the pressures of RSS and sangh parivar as it has been doing ever since and the institutions India will strong enough to withstand communal flaming unlike Gujarat.
what i am trying to say is that congress is the only true centrist national party in India. But it is stuck between 'chekuthan' and 'kadal' ( ie leftist and hindu fundamentalists.)
Yes congress has problems too.. it don’t have strong leaders and there are a lot of cronies around MS. Gandhi. At the same time its weakness is also its strength. Sonia can do almost anything in the party.. this helps her to nominate professionals instead of seasoned politicians to the key positions.

Naveen, Sonia Gandhi has been an MP since 1999 and she has been the leader of opposition during NDA regime. It is not like she had no political experience as you were implying. Yes, she got all her powers for the simple reason- of being the wife of late Rajeeve Ghandi. At the same time, it is not her fault that a whole lot of ordinary Indians continue to give their unconditional loyalty to the Nehru family. Two of them gave their life to the country and one was instrumental for the freedom our nation. There is nothing wrong for being a little thankful for their contributions to the country. And I don't think India had any good enough leaders who actually deserve people’s loyalty than the widowed Sonia, back then.

gtg,
Babin

naveen said...

Babin,1 thing tht i agree with u is tht. at present,after vaj[ayee and advani,pressure on BJP frm RSS,vhp and other hindu extrimists will b strong!! dunno how many of the then leaders can cope with it??? in tht respect, congress is better. but tht is not the only issue here!! actually,UPA is ruling rather thn congress!! congress 2 is being pressurised. guys lik Lallo and Co. is wrecking havoc!!! bihar is the most richest state in india with respect 2 its rich natural resources. It is the Rhine of india!! so,overcoming these pressures can b a tough job 4 a lady lik sonia. i'm not saying this generalising 2 all women!! jayalilita can take it,i'm sure.but sonia,not tht sure!! if only congress or only bjp was in power,then there was not tht chance of worry!!! but an alliance of abt. 20 aprties or so is dangerous!!!! anyway,nice 2 c ur comments!! nice talking 2 u babin!!! bye

Rockus said...

Well,well, well there are issues in BJP. But there no dearth of good leaders. And a ray of hope is there with speculations on joint leadership though it may be rough in working. Dont forget Arun Jaitley(my best bet), Sushma Swaraj, Pramod Mahajan, Narendra Modi (take apart Gujarat Riots and the man is a great chief minister) etc. What does Congress has to offer? Rahul and Priyanka Gandgi??? Please I will pass! Don't give the shit that people rever Nehru family. The people are ignorant and made that way by congress local leaders. I have seen that happening on TV and in real life. The middle class and upper class vote (if they do vote!) for congress only on terms of the local leadership (e.g in Kerala) and not seeing the wonderful ass of the congress leadership.

Babin said...

Darn it Rockus... I was spending the last 1/2 hour writing up a long reply to ur last post.. guess what?? my computer got booted by the end and I freaking lost everything i wrote:(((( Grrrr......

Anyway, in short,I was trying to say, eventhough India need strong leaders don't asssume only charismatic and firy people can become so. Infact charismatic leaders are very dangerous for the society, they are often with the dark side of the force!

+BJP is a party fueld by ideology. They got to the point where they are now by injecting their narrow ideology (like a steroid). Now they have to face the sideffects of taking the drug or continue to be drug addicts.. either way bad for the country... (hope i am making sense here )
