Opposition party in India..

India
December 26, 2006 5:59pm CST
Opposition party in India is the worst in the world. They have only one issue always.That is RELIGION. They come to power by talking about religion.They try to remain in power by talking about religion. We want better internet services with reasonable tarif, BSNL should be taken for task for thier tricky broadband connection which ends up swindling people. If ruling party canot rule correctly, the opposition party should take up such issues, instead of attacking Christians and muslims and becoming great heros and when it comes to fighting terrorism they are scared.Safron Brigade is not saving Hindus in Kashmir from the hands of Militants.They dont have guts. Instead they attack Christmas Carol singing Christians and put false case against them calling it FORCIBLE conversion. How long will they tell lies like this to the Indian public ?

In US if a party falls from power, they dont always try to see the mistakes of the ruling party. They oppose the real matters which requires opposition, and they support the ruling party when it helps in the interests of thier country. Thats the reason they are progressing. In India the opposit party just opposes everything the ruling party does.They should change thier attitudes. They forget thier commitment to the country.First they should stop this dirty menace religion from their agenda.It is stinking too much.

I agree with you. The country can progress when the approach of opposition party would be positive. In India, as you mentioned, that the opposition party go up against each and every decision of the government. At present, the major opposition party (Bartiya Janta Party) has no clear vision and direction. They always work to create a center of attention and getting the Hindu Votes. The have not much concerned with the progress of the country. All the political parties and leaders indulge in corruption I think this is the bed luck of India.

Yeah the opposition party are third class people in the Indian democracy.I don't do things which they are menat for.They don't critices the ruling party and keep a pressure on the ruling party for their foul policies..they just want to play with people.They are dreaming when they will be sitting in the ruling party.They don't understand that in a democratic country a opposition party has an equall status as a ruling party. And also you said it right that they only know how to play with people's sentiments on taking their religions..

They just want to fool all Indians by highlighting they are the only Hindu supporters in India.Even congress , communists and other parties also are Hindu majority parties.These parties in India are not agaist Hindus.They may not support criminal activities of rss or bajarangadals.In fact these groups are bringing bad name to hinduism.Like taliban is a shame to Islam.These fellows should fight against militants of kashmir than killing muslims in other parts of the country.

When you love this country you will love the people of this great nation too without looking at thier religion.Hindu, sikh, muslim,Christian..all are Children of this great nation. It should be the responsibility of Both Ruling and the opposition parties to have a meaningful approach towards building of this nation.If they dont get together for construction, they are not fit to be on thier seats.They should end thier differences on the day of election.Afterwards they should have one united approach. JaiHIND.

Here in India the most funniest part is that nobody attacks those who attack them.Instead they attack Christians b'cause they dont attack them back. Every one feels free to attack Christians and become heros here.

Here debate is going on the subject on irresponsible opposition in Indian politics not for attacking christens. I think you are deviating the subject. If you want to discuss on that issue raise new topic but don’t battle here on this issue.

Even attacking Christians and Muslims for thier vote benefit is a feather in the caps of our great opposition party. So I feel it is relevent here so that people will know what is happenning here. The same elements go begging money to Christian countries with thier shameless inborn attitudes. There they smile with artificial politness. Then here they bark and try to bite every passerby.

you are so coreect.neither the opposition nor the ruling party is doing what it is supposed to do.Everyone knows how much time of lok sabha was recently wasted over petty matters.1 hour of loksabha costs a bomb.recently after the poor spate of performences by the cricket team,the opposition went after the head of gregg chappel instead of making sure that the ordinary man got roti kapda or makaan.all they are bothered is religion politics just too garner votes of the public on religious grounds..the godhra incident is a glaring example.

You said it.They are wasting public money on petty matters. I accidently saw pakistans discussions in tv.I found they were discussing better topics ,sounded meaningful and constructive. I will appreciate BJP if they discuss valuable matters, than cast and religion.

thats really sad.i am an indian,and i agree with your point.whenever they think they need more attention in the public they just do something like this for attention.they are just scared of losing their ground thats all.they want kling to the news ,attacking christmas carols is an unfortunate incident.

Irresponsible are the BJP guys, they can only satisfy some street rowdy elements. Christmas and Carols are worldwide. If Hindu organisations can attack them, beat them, misbehave with the ladies and put a false case on them, imagine the state of India. If they have stooped to the level of telling lies openly,see thier values. Can such liers lead a religion or a country? No gentleman in Hinduism can appreciate this act.Some Police and media are biased and dont come to help the effected innocent Christians. Instead they add to it.

Hi dear. I just went through the responses. It is interesting reading. I thought I shall also share my mind. So here goes. In India, when someone makes a comment about a particular party or a worker, the opposition feels that he or she is trying to take a dig at the other. This induces the opponent to go on the defensive without analysing the veracity of the input/comment. However, even without exaggerating, I personally feel the BJP, which is an offshoot of the erstwhile Jan Sangh which was converted to Janata Party of old and which has direct link to some of the communal organizations like RSS, VHP, Bajrang Dal etc is the one only party that has managed to clinch power by clandestine methods, after playing on the sentiments of hindus with the covert support from the Sadhus and Sanyasins. Politics exist everywhere and every party has an inclination to toss freebies to a particular section or community of people when in power or to appease them for the sake of votes. Congress too tries its hand to amuse one or the other community with a view to garner votes, but with a difference. Their acts cannot be seen as detrimental to other communities as a whole. Every party in power deems it their bounden duty to cater to the welfare of a particular deprived section of people but this cannot wholly be construed as intended to garner votes. Their acts need to be viewed from the point of view of country's growth. It is unfortunate that the country has to progress together, taking the entire country with it. In doing so, if a particular party judges it as a deliberate act to belittle the other, it cannot be helped because the endeavour of the Congress Party as a national party right from the time of partition has been to maintain equidistance from controversies that can split the country. But, here the gaping hole appears in the 'party with a difference' (BJP) who have done their homework before coming to power by means of destruction of the mosque at Ayodhya and on a promise of building the temple at Ayodhya on the same spot. All vile means for a national party that it is aspiring to be. Even today, the same party is clamoring for votes on the promise of building the temple if voted to power with a majority. Well, it is not possible to say to what extent they will be successful, for the very people who played dangerously with the national defence policy by its Pokhran I and II, can do any damn thing to stay on or capture power at the centre. BJP as such is only a throw away heap with people coming together for power. Even my deceased father-in-law who happened to be a staunch supporter of BJP had written books extolling the party (BJP) and after its coming to power managed to arrange for himself a lifetime pension for self and his family. And this party talks big about 'absence of corruption'. I never thought it prudent to blow the balloon out of proportion and so kept the matter to myself. Even the disintegration of BJP is not a distant prediction with already some stalwarts like Uma and Madan Lal slowly drifting from its ideals. Even when the party was in power Uma tried to create a nische for herself in the shape of a crusader for the sake of temple at Ayodhya. A lady of no substance and without any mass appeal, whose only cv is that of being a regional politician endeared to a regional party in MP. The lady managed to belittle others, even to the extent of slinging mud at Sonia Gandhi in order to portray Sonia in bad light for her own mirth. Whaterver that be, the UPA supported by left and other like minded parties is sailing smooth at the centre. There has been no any tussle for power by any of its allies save for the TRS which did not constitute much to the alliance at the centre, But BJP has totally proved a non entitity as an opposition, much of a departure from what they used to be prior to coming to power at the centre. As an afterthought, it may also be mentioned that the real stuff of BJP came to light when they went for a President of their choice after discarding the very person they elevated to the post of Vice President. You know the name I mean. Yes, they did a BJP on the late Vice President Kishan Kant, yea, that too during his last days. Shame. BJP failed miserably during the last Lok Sabha elections and their calculation led to a horrendous defeat. May be they had wild dreams of making in on their own, but fortune never smiled on them and they had to eat humble pie having got maimed both at the centre as also at the regional level. History can reveal more on the events of last one decade or so. But we can be content to note that BJP is not a party to be trusted, what to speak of thrusting such a self-motivated party to the centre.

Did you see the drama of BJP today.They are protesting against the verdict of SADDAM, today after he is being hanged.They never liked muslims, they want to demolise Masjids, but they are so hurt for Saddam's execution ! This is world's 1st wonder ! They dont like America and thier religion but many of them are staying in America enjoying thier wealth. Here one bjp biased person basically from India is reacting in this thread to the extent of using abusive languages on the Prime Minister of India sitting in America ! What a patriatism !

man politics in India is messed up. There are people who have not completed education. Instead normal civilians can do better then them. If few educated people who are normal civilians are taken in then they will change the face of whole country. They will take the country forward. Stupid old politicians are scared.

Let the opposition party be recognised as anti-corruption people realising thier resposibilities as the strogest opposition party in India.Have you seen the way the authorities in Mumbai Airport are behaving when you get down from an international flight ? Literally begging for gifts and money ? This is just one example. Many think corruption can not be removed. Why ? We can remove it if we all get united. Yes younger generation has to take up thier responsibilities. Nobody gives them.They have to take it. I appreciate your views.Lets expect better future days.Thanks for your comment.

If you mean the present opposition party I agree with you. If you do not mean the past opposition parties then I will add that and say it is not a single party or the present opposition it is our opposition parties which seems to have always worked as an irresponsbile opposition. There are lot of changes which many would like to see in our Political class. Whenever the Judiciary works towards cleansing the political system there will be lot of pressure from them because they know they are mostly not doing justice to the taxpayer's money when they are shutting down the Lok Sabha for no or little reasons.

I think we people are faulty we know the leaders character even then we favors the corrupt leader. First of all we have to change our thinks. In India even well educated person does this huge mistake. Media is equally responsible for electing the crooked leaders. They influence the innocent and uneducated people in favor of these dishonest leaders. Now it is time to change our thoughts and party bias attitudes if we want to save the country from these selfish leaders.

Yes this is true that opposition party in india are very religious and based on these principle they want to run their party from a regional level to national level. They even wanted to set up the government to rule the country without any base or objective. They just know told people that we are going to give you whatever is needed by you. But after ruling either they publicise the party principle in the plans also. They are just cheating people, i.e. democracy. In a democratic nation where there is power by the people, for the people, to the people, the nation is always there to ask the question abt the progress and the implementation for the welfare of people.

Remember thier last times slogan" ham ram rajya banega". Then people voted them, b'cause every one wanted to Rama Rajya. At the end of 5 years all of them became Ravanas ! ordinary citizens forgot about democracy. No nation will survive with weak visions.

religion is not the problem. Pseudo secularism is the problem. Poor people should get resources of the country. To say that only muslims should get resources is evil. The prime minister should accept his mistake and make amends. Such religion based politics will not take us anywhere.

They need to know thier responsibilities and act.They should stop supporting or hating the faiths of people and mind thier business in politics.There are so many issues India which they should fight agaisnt instead of talking only about religion and dividing people for thier vote banks. For example they can fight against CORRUPTION which is everywhere so grown deep into our system. Let our opposistion be recognised as a party which is agaist these forces than taking the tag of Hindutwa.Let them be for everybody.After all general public here are living like brothers why should they divide them.Instead let every govt. official get scared of BJP for an anti-corruption attitude. Let them catch those who take bribes and bring them under the fold of law. Then people of all faith will vote them.We need a strong opposition party now.

The ruling party in India always talks about secularism, while allowing some 'minors' to have 'personal law board' and also protects the so called 'rights' of all the other communities. This is what they mean my secular country. To take care of everyone except the original and majority. This helps them keep the vote bank intact. Whereas the opposition party talks points out the so called 'secular' strategies and tries to bring all on the same platform. Its better that they talk about what they want. Not like the ruling party, which has a vast difference in what they say and what they do (or never do) This is my personal opinion.

Good. The present opposition was the ruling party before, and why they could not do that ? Were they not trying to please muslims by going in a bus to Pakistan and hugging and kissing Musharaf ? Was it not a drama for vote while they always hated muslims ? Lets see it from very clear eyes for the benefit of this country.Their anger towards muslims they are showing it on Christians ?

They didn't start the bus to pak to please any community. It was a different issue altogether. The 'peace' process was started then which is still in progress. Even after the bus went to pak, they attacked on Kargil! So it was more of international politics and not within the country.
