One more serial blast and the country is as frozen and shocked as it was earlier. Terror strikes in the UPA regime have become more common than those hoax promises delivered by our politicians before every election. After, Jaipur, Bangalore, Ahmedabad and Surat, it is Delhi and God knows, there may be many more cities on the radar in the coming months.
While the terrorists were leisurely planning and marking the country’s busiest and vulnerable areas to set off their plans, our government was busy negotiating nuclear deal with US. It is debatable though on whether the Nuclear deal is more important than settling internal tribulations that the country is going though.
Right from Orissa in the East to Gujarat in the West and Kashmir in the North to Karnataka in the South, none of the cities have been left untouched by the growing influence of terrorists and naxalites. The present government has easily enabled the terrorists to crown and dub the state as ‘soft target’ of the World.
Soon after the blast, our Home Minister, Shivraj Patil ventured out of his AC cabin to give count of dead people in the blast. The audacity with which Patil ventures out after every blast and rattles those rehearsed lines shows how good he is with his dialogue deliveries. This time too, he said, “Investigators will find out the people behind the blast and punish them. We will not let them go.”
Now how many times have we heard this…? Mr Patil probably has forgotten the count of victims who died in Ahmedabad and Jaipur blasts and similar assurances offered by him to the gullible citizens of the nation.
I think and many agree that it is time for the Government to bring in stricter laws to curb terrorism in the country. Look at the big brother, America who after 9/11 terrorist attack, has not had any major attacks on them. While people have been failed by the present Government, parties sitting on the fence and waiting to seize opportunity have started political battle even as blast victims were succumbing in the hospitals.
I just wish realization dawns on the Government who are chosen by us to protect and give us decent lives and not feed our famished nation with their false promises and assurances.
