People's Prime Minister
Prime Minister's post occupies a special position in Indian democracy. It is the most powerful and respectable position as well. As such a man or woman of impeccable integrity should only occupy this position. No doubt, a Prime Minister belongs to any political party. However, when one occupies the position he/she no longer remains the Prime Minister of his/her party alone. In fact, he/she becomes the Prime Minister of all citizens of the country irrespective of their party affiliations. Therefore, the Prime Minister should not only be neutral but also neutral.
To keep the PM post above reproach or attack from opponent parties; the Prime Minister should not attend any party rally in public, and should not do campaign in assembly elections too for his party. Of course, he/ she can campaign in parliamentary election for his party, only after election dates are declared by the Election Commission, when code and conducts come into effect. If the above are followed in letter and spirit, it would obviously help maintain the status of the Prime Minister in the highest esteem. We don't want that our Prime Minister to be rightly or wrongly accused in public.
Price of being Secular
India is the only nation in the world which is secular. Being a citizen of the secular democratic nation everybody is entitled to express his/her own views without any hesitation and also it gives the citizens, irrespective of any religion, to protest without any fear. The freedom to express one's view at the cost of nation's interest is unacceptable. The video tapes which were telecasted recently in some of the national news channel where the notorious 'tukde tukde gang' pleading complete discrimination of India in the auspicious Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus. Further, those traitors were seen shouting slogans against the government for hanging the dreaded terrorist Afzal Guru. The whole campus was ranted with slogans for revenge for the killing of Afzal Guru. Interestingly, Aam Admi Party (AAP) and Congress are openly supporting that traitor gang alias tukde tukde gang. Is this the fruit of secularism where for the sake of minority appeasement, dreaded terrorist is accorded martyr's status.
Are we heading to become a banana republic? If needed, let us be communal than to be traitors, as secularism cannot be a one way traffic. Currently, the philosophy of secularism is binding only for the Hindus.
