Salute the Indian People!
|by Dr. Rajinder Puri|
Indians are often rightly accused of being apathetic and unwilling to assert themselves. The criticism is valid. But equally when the chips are down the Indian people respond with wisdom and courage. Need one recall how the people voted out the Emergency government of Indira Gandhi in 1977? Or how they responded when the Indo-Chinese conflict erupted in 1962? Once again when the nation faces its bleakest political crisis as governance collapses and corruption runs riot the people are responding as they ought to. Belatedly perhaps, they are responding as reason dictated they should have behaved much earlier.
On April 26, 2006 it was observed:
One was gratified to read that at last Medha Patkar has decided to enter politics and join the Aam Admi Party (AAP).
On August 30, 2011 after the Anna Hazare movement blossomed it was pointed out:
Much after this was written it provided this writer satisfaction to see that Mr. Arvind Kejriwal had branched off from the Anna Hazare movement to launch AAP as a full fledged political party.
On July 9, 2013 it was pointed out in these columns:
After forming the government in Delhi Mr. Kejriwal described his party as a movement and said:
So far so good! Now it remains to be seen if the people of India can maintain the momentum and introduce the fundamental systemic reform required to create a genuine and meaningful change.
On January 1, 2014 it was written:
By the end of this year we should get some indication of whether the Indian people will also address these two fundamental changes that are required to reform the system for exploiting the nation’s potential.
