So many points, so little time!: Dec 13-19

1. Mamta Banerjee released this report on the finances of railways in the past 5 years. She alleges that Lalu Prasad bloated and inflated the accounts to show good performance! Another scam, but the media is surprisingly quiet about this!

2. Ajmal Kasab is a very intelligent guy. He can quickly grasp messages from Pakistan and mould them according to his will. Last year, Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari came up with this awesome term "non-state actors". Ajmal Kasab heard the word "Actors". And he began framing his defense based on that one word. In his statement recorded in the court last week, Ajmal Kasab tells us that he came to bollywood aspiring to join in films. He was arrested on November 25th itself for roaming around. The police killed actual Kasab and since looked like Kasab, the police have started framing him. Kasab also says he was interrogated by David Headley as part of FBI Intelligent guy, seems to be following the news too (NDTV broke the news that Headley was an FBI agent before). I am just waiting to see what story will come out from the next dose of his creativity.

3. More than anyone, the common man is severly affected by the ongoing agitations in Andhra Pradesh. For about 10 days, it was Telangana that shut shop. And for 10 days after that (and still continuing) it is Andhra that has shut shop. I dont understand the concept of "voluntary bandh"... obviously people are closing their shops fearing destruction by unruly elements more than anything else. Not just bandhs, even rasta rokos create so many problems for normal people. Colleges are being shut. And while all this is happening, the powers that be really dont seem to be concerned much. CM still says Madam will decide. Madam as usual is not saying anything. And that clown KCR has started this rantings again. Congress is now blaming Naidu for this fiasco! I mean...agreed he is not able to control his party now, but yo - Congress people started the resignations first! Why blame Naidu for "flip-flops"? Amidst all this, Chiranjeevi has changed his stance and announced support for United Andhra.

4. As if the present chaos in Pakistan is not enough, the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) was declared null and void by the Supreme Court. According to this ordinance, corruption cases against some 8000 poiticians were struck off in 2007. SC struck off the ordinance. One amongst the 8000 politicians is the President of Pakistan - Asif Ali Zardari! Now corruption cases will be opened against him. Not just him, most members of the cabinet will be affected by this! Zardari ofcourse is unfazed by all this. He will not leave his post at any cost. Let the country go to dogs, he wants his post!

5. A new generational shift has finally happened in the BJP. Sushma Swaraj took over from L.K.Advani as leader of opposition in Lok Sabha. Nitin Gadkari took over as President of BJP. The next one year is very crucial for BJP. Am hoping it will rise well to become a credible and strong opposition.
