Beat this!!!

16 Comments

Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan’s family refused to meet, and interact with Kerala Chief Minister V. S. Achuthanandan, and his Home Minister, K. Balakrishanan. He was not welcome, as it was clear he had come under “duress”, the words, of Mr. Unnikrishanan. There were angry scenes at their house.

The CM left.

And now, on Times Now, I just heard this, a slighted CM Achuthanandan reacting to his unceremonious ouster from the martyr’s house.

He said that if it had not been Major Sandeep Unnikrishanan’s house, not even a dog would have gone there.

Can you beat that, any of you politicians?

Who’s next?

(This comes in tandem to the post that at IHM’s blog, about another politician who questioned the citizens’ anguish and their protests against politicians. I had just finished posting a note there, and my son called me urgently to watch and listen to yet another horror unfolding, in the form of the Kerala CM’s remark! Truly unforgivable!)

  1. You know what Usha, Maj. Unnikrishnan’s sacrifice should not go waste. We can see a wave of outrage amongst the people of India, and the fact that these guys have shown their true colours at this time is almost like the will of God.
    I think we are about to change, I hope my feeling is right.

  2. Right on,IHM, absolutely right. The wave is forming, and I hope it will serve at least to make them, in some way accountable for their actions, and help them to find a conscience within. Make them human. At least that.

    I have this feeling too. Let us hope that it does translate into real and tangible actualities.

  4. Praveen, I know.. I have just read the write up in English that you posted. I think every Malayalee would be furious and shamed by that… and why only Malayalees, anyone who can proudly say I am an Indian will…

    Let us hope and raise our voice in some way and make that difference to such Politicos.

  5. I dont know how come CM og kerala got such a low morale value that he started telling any nonsense as he wishes.
    He should be thrown out of power for such a pathetic and culture less remark.

  9. @Journey to home, it is sometimes inexplicable, but then there it is. True colours start showing, I guess. Thanks for your words.

    Stephen, yes HE should have been more understanding, at least given his age and so called maturity.. which vanished in an instant, the @#$^&%@#$%^&!!! No kind names for him, for sure. No matter what the provocation.

    Mithe, just read , right now, more about that wave on IHM's new post. It is encouraging, that things are happening. Let us hope we shall not forget and we shall continue the way forward, constructively!

    Karthik, they are a shame to the field of politics and have given it a status of untouchable, as far as a decent person goes. Politics is a dirty game, has been so , because of them. Hope there will be at least some kind of change, and soon.

  12. Siddharth/Samby [?], this actually happened, and we saw it, heard it, while it happened!
    No greater shame for the institution of politics in India, truly!
    Outrageous, is an understatement. And damage control has started with apologies and all, but even that is a farce, considering that even that came under duress, after he said there was no need to apologize and he did not regret saying that!
    And still he gets his Z cat. security, he sleeps on in peace at night! Unforgivable!!!

  13. There are two kinds of breeds in India now. One who are humane and the rest are politician. I don’t see any sign of them being anything but a mammal that is far off from being a civilized person or a human in fact.
