Narendra Modi‘s Gujarat sent Qutubuddin Ansari to West Bengal. How ironic that Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee should return the favour with the Tata Nano.
How ironic that BJP ruled Gujarat should quietly trump BJP-ruled Karnataka in the race for the plant while B.S. Yediyurappa and team (and Y.S. Rajashekar Reddy and Vilas Rao Deshmukh) were running all over the place.
And how ironic that the plant which ran into trouble over 400 acres of agricultural land in Singur should now be located on 1,000 acres of land donated by the Anand agricultural university in Sanand.
And how might it further add to the halo around Modi’s “leadership”?

Another vote bank politics turned into disaster..! Mamata wanted to gain in Bengal’s rural vote bank… It has back fired & now she will LOOSE all the urban votes which was her vote banks major chunk. She might have lost even the rural votes in this mess…!!
Finally WB has to pay the price for mamata aunty’s drama. Govt lost a economic boost, mamata lost the vote bank, Tata’s lost crores of rupees & farmers lost their land…! It was a wise decision from Tata’s to move out of WB.
The Tata Nano is a national icon, an ‘image’, a symbol. Something that we should be proud of, and give it a collective thumbs-up as a nation. The Nano needs to be recognized as an Indian, Desi achievement, similar to the PSLV launch, the moon mission, etc..
It is a big relief that the work will finally get underway. Whether in Gujarat, or Karnataka, or AP, or Maharashtra is less important than the fact that it is at least going to get started.
Mamata Bannerjee can rot in hell for all I care. The farmers of Singur are now staging demonstrations to have the nano plant in Singur!! Mamata’s antics have left them between the devil and deep sea – neither here nor there.
West Bengal or Waste Bengal is doomed because of politicians like Mamatha Banerjee. Buddhadev is also to blame. After being anti private sector for so long he and his party cannot change their colors. This is doomsday for all the future investments to Bengal. No new companies will dare set up their facilities in this loony land. The waste bengalis can keep their land for themselves. Let’s see what productive things they will do with their Singur Land. This whole drama will make more educated Bengali youth to leave their wasteland and come to places like Bangalore, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Gurgoan, Hyderbad, Pune, Noida.
Bengali youths if they have any Brains should be out in the streets protesting against Buddhadeb and Mamata. Their future in Begal is finished.
Educated Bengali youth should come to the streets and demand from
Karnataka would have been good…Gujarat is great…more so because it will add to Modi’s halo..
This incident is the victory of short sighted capitalistic interests over the visionary People’s movement led by the statesmen of Bengal in collaboration with worker and farmer brothers of minority communities and with great superpower nation of China. The retrograde forces of well known communal Gujratis have scored a pyrrhic victory of great and historically inevitable dictatorship of the proletariat led by minority community of Bengal because the latter are not only secular but are guided by most advanced and evolved brains of Bengali Leftist intellectuals who have developed their secular capacity of rationalism by eating beef, with the help of great leaders like Chao Mao Lenin Stalin Marx etc., all from noble foreign countries where upper caste feudals do not exist. It is also proving that parsis like Tata were chased out from Iran by noble minority community for the reason of being greedy capitalist feeding on blood of minority community seculars and proletariat.Long live the revolution. People of Singur you have nothing to loose but the tatas and you have a pure pollution free world to gain.
Waste Bengal has nobody but Mama and Dada to “lead” them.
Buddha (Dada), to be fair….has made valiant efforts inspite of his Party, to bring about meaningful change…hats off to him. But will always fail.
What are the alternatives? None.
The following professional protestors should camp in Gujarat: Medha Patkar, Arundati Roy, Brinda Karat, Teesta Svetalvad, Javed Akthar, Shabana Azmi, Shabnam Hashmi and many others. They will have a new stick to bear Narendra Modi as the face of evil capitalism. Hope these people will live up to the expectations of Ms Banerjee.
The mood on the street in Gujarat is of victorious cheer. The smug industrious ‘capitalist’ Gujjus are thumbing a nose at the ‘communist’ West Bengal farmer brethren. It doesn’t matter that agriculture university land is being given away for a song (“nothing much was happening there anyway”; “we had never heard of such a university in Sanand anyway”), as long as the high profile, in-the-news project comes to town, and adds credence to Gujarat being the ‘most industry-friendly state’ (a feather in Modi’s cap is only incidental? It only took 6 hours for the government to put all the land together say some news reports).
Please follow the link to the story which appeared on TOI Ahmedabad edition’s front page today:
It could only happen in Gujarat that land belonging to a government agriculture university would transfer without much murmur. The Karnataka government would not even be able to think of touching any UAS land in Karnataka without Karnataka Raitha Sangha, with generous support from JD raising the heckles!
Karnataka was never in the picture for this investment.
The last few years of misrule by the CONgress and the Gowda family have created an unfavourable investment scenario in this state. It cannot change overnight. True, investments are still coming in for the IT sector, but that is more so because of the cluster built around in Bangalore than anything else.
Kharge, Gowda, Mari Gowda, buddhi jeevigalu… all had ridiculed BSY when he said that he wants to bring in Modi style of government. For these jokers of the pack Modi = communal violence. They cant be blamed though.. as they say… kaamale kannorige jagavella haladi… so these baffoons are used to seeing everything in communal colour. But Modi has proved that he is an astute administrator and investor friendly CM.
BSY has his task cut out for him. He can change the investment scenario of this state if he honestly tries.
Mamta Banerjee is the new age secular leader in the country. Mamta has stood for the downtrodden people and has treated Hindus and Muslims with equity.
May her tribe grow in India
Ratan Tata has done the right thing and made a cool and calculated decision in hte interests of his shareholders, which in the case of the TATA group consists of a host of charitable institutions. Vinutha, the farmers at Singur have their land but can’t make much more money out of it, for may reasons – lack of market access, poor supply chain, uneconomic land holdings etc., The Nano project would have helped them find a regular income and put their backbreaking days of toil behind them forever. Thanks to a bunch of luddites and stupid reactionaries, Waste Bengal has become a cauldron of raving lunatic charlatanry. Tata had a few choices, let’s check them out…
Uttarakhand – headed by a tough no nonsense Maj.Gen. Khanduri, who got our highways started and is a feared administrator. But access to Uttarakhand is thru Mayavati’s UP which has been laid waste to by Mulayam and besides mayavati is flirting with populism these days and increasingly out of touch.
TN – Madras is the Detroit of India of sorts, but the first family of the state the corrupt Karunanidhi dynasty wants too much of money. Koreans and Germans will pay, but Ratan Tata won’t
Karnataka – has a business-like and progressive administration – finally – but still not out of the woods with the hypercorrupt Gowda clan and Congress goons still not put into their place
AP – It’s run by YSR a Sonia chamcha, and there is never knowing which way YSR will turn – unsteady and populist – and with the guy up for re-election, he may suddenly turn populist
Rajasthan – Not considered
Maharashtra – It is mired in inefficiency
Gujarat – It has always been the 1st choice, headed by an able administrator, very business-like and efficient. So there we have it!
FYI, everyone. Qutubuddin Ansari lives in Ahmedabad and leads a peaceful life. He became disgusted with the pseudo-progressives of Calcutta who wanted to build their careers on his back, so a few years back he packed up his bags and returned to Gujarat.
Long live Modiji…Modi for PM
Anti-industry is at the very root of bengali psyche because of CPI(M)’s politics since 1940 while Mamata’s political existance is barely a decade old. There is no proof that CPIM has discarded the anti-industry outlook- it calls bandh every now and then. The only person who kept his cool, behaved normally was Governor Gopal Gandhi. But Gandhi-giri failed as Buddha backtracked even after signing deal with Mamata because CPIM wants to play politics than resolve the issue.
The problem of Singur is not solved- because the land cannot be used for agriculture. Neither its returned. Tata still has the lease.
I think in normal circumstances, Modi would not like to give in to competitive sops as demanded by Industries.
Long term solution to industrialization in India is to buy land directly by industrialists. They must stop pitting one state against another for extracting sops.
Bengal will remain the Mexico of India. Gujarat will outsource potato and tomato cultivation to Bengal. Nano will be used by Bengal to transport potatoes to neighbouring states.
They are good in Agriculture and they will remain the backoffice for growing Potatoes,Tomatoes,Brinjals for the rest of India.
We will require hubs for agriculture as well.
India is a mix of Socialism,Communism,Capitalism and Feudalism.
All most all states have son’s and grandson’s ruling the states as family fiefdoms.
Gowdas,Karunanidhi,Nehru-Gandhi’s,Abdullah’s,Yadav’s,Patnaiks,Naidu’s,Pawar’s,Raje’s,Karunakaran’s,Bansi lal’s and Bhajan lal’s.
Now the recycled crap of Generation worst is being thrown back at the electorate.
Educating Indian’s will be dangerous to these politicians as they will loose their carefully cultivitated BANKS.
Sikappate Buddhijeeva Says:
“professional protesters” should camp in Gujarat: Medha Patkar, Arundati Roy, Brinda Karat, Teesta Svetalvad….
Excellent Superb was always wondering what to call these bunch.
I remember some years ago, the communist government of WB borrowed money from Peerless Insurance company to pay the salaries of the state government employees. So much for the “hate capitalists” stance of the commies. This was done under the able cheap ministership of that himalayan blunder fame Jyoti Basu.
What would you do now if you are a Modi baiter now? What would you do if you are a sickularist? Oh, I shudder to even think of their plight! I only hope polytheist-pagan decimating, the all powerful GOD of theirs will show some way to deplore this act by Tatas.
For, they can not declare Tatas are communal since they were cuddling communists for months. Hmmmm… wonder if they would declare Nano a communal car or a kaffir car because it is manufactured in Gujarat.
Here is what I sugest to my beleaguered sickularist friends who can not fathom that Tatas went to Gujarat.
Demand that every Nano be painted in green with hammer&sickle symbol on the top and moon& star on the sides. Otherwise boycott the darn car!
Kannadiga>>some years ago, the communist government of WB borrowed money from Peerless Insurance company to pay the salaries of the state government employees
True. Even today, Govt of WB spends some 110% of its budget to pay salary to its employees, school teachers, local Govt officials, retirees.
The financial situation of the state is EXTREMELY EXTREMELY BAD. Probably worst in India.
Much of Central Govt funds goes back as they often come with strings attached- State Govt will have to foot centain percentage to get the central fund. As state cannot allocate any money, thus central funds go back unused.
WB is surviving because some key Govt sector that feeds its economy n keep economy running.
People talk abt bad industrial situation in WB. What they rarely speak is, even worse situation for agriculture. Agriculture has become unprofitable for major produce like rice, potato. Suicide is rising though as usual media filled with soft leftists speak rarely abt those.
ಕನ್ನಡವ ಮರೆಯದಿರು ಕನ್ನಡದ ಕಂದ; ಕನ್ನಡವ ಕಾಪಾಡು ನನ್ನಾನಂದ
ಜೋಗುಳದ ಹರಕೆಯಿದು ಮರೆಯದಿರು ಚಿನ್ನ; ಮರೆತೆಯಾದರೆ ಅಯ್ಯೋ ಮರೆತಂತೆ ನನ್ನ

All kannadigas must boycott all products manufactured by TATA group of campanies and TATA should be declared persona non grata. We should canvas birla to set up factories in Karnataka to compete with TATA products
TATA is a foreigner and anti kannadiga/racist. He set up factory in GUjarat only because Gujarati is the spoken language of Parsis and easy to communicate with Modi. Our chief minister \s lack of linguistic skill also can be blamed for Tata’s decision
Long Live Karnataka
I humbly beg you to settle down in karnataka and takeover naxalite movement which at present lacks proper leaders. Feudal corrupt families ruling karnataka should be rooted out and poor people should be allowed to live in a dignified manner
Bombaat! now we have a ‘Nano Purush’? When it has become so politicized I cant help to recollect the dynastic ,sickularist family also had some role in bringing out the real first peoples car ‘Maruthi’ long ago.
Azmi>>Mamta Banerjee is the new age secular leader in the country
Persis are the ONLY people who refused special rights when it was discussed in the constitutinal assembly. Stop milking secularism to further sectarian cause- because people are not going to tolerate this anymore.
Ratan Tata must be communal, other wise he would not have chosen a BJP ruled state. Probably the INC Greats are playing it safe!!
I am happy that Nano went out of Karnataka, there is no place in Bangalore and lest the fragile ecology of Western Ghats gets damaged.
No place other than Gujarat for it.
“evolved brains of Bengali Leftist intellectuals ” – Brains…. that too evolved..?!! hehe…. u must be kidding…
@shyodha: Good one… they are still thinking about a response….
Nano Car communal or kaffir…?!!! Well said Syodha….
No wonder if the Sonia circus calls nano as a safforn car & will ask sickularist to boycott, as its coming out of gujarath..!!
I will look it from another angle.
This cartoon is published by HINDU which is mouth piece of Commies (PINKOS). Now they are feeling the pinch of these kind of protests.
Mamata is hitting these commies with there own sickle & hammer.
Which these commmies are unable to digest.
I humbly beg you to get out of Karnataka ASAP, because, as long as there are people like you in Karnataka, our state will remain lagging behind in economy, quality of life, etc. etc.
It is because of cretins like you that the country has an ever increasing divisive mentality. It is because of dense and thick people like you and your ilk, who know nothing apart from painting everything with a ‘language’ brush, that people are getting more intolerant day by day.
TATA was completely intent on setting the plant in Waste Bengal. If Mamatha Bannerjee had not stuck her long foot in, the plant would have been operational in WB by today. And you say that TATA went to Gujarat because of bloody ‘language’. According to your warped and insane logic, TATA is anti-Uttarakhand, anti-AP, anti-maharashtra, isn’t it? (This sentence was sarcastic. Just making it clear since you seem to be too thick headed to grasp it otherwise).
Why don’t you do one thing? Hang yourself and do the state a favour – please??
There are two “kannadiga”s in this board. The first is “kannadiga” and the second is “Kannadiga”. I’m assuming the latter (the one who made ridiculous statements) is just a troll. Ignore him.
One of the reason why karnataka lost ‘nano’ is due to our Mukya Mantri’s lethargy combined with ill health. He has BP/diabetics due to which he can not function properly. He blames his ill health on Gowda’s MATA. Instead of taking treatment from reputed Doctors, he is busy busy visiting mantravadis/swamis who are nothing but conmen. He should step down and handover charge to Shobha Karandlaje.
you are nobody to tell me to quit karnataka. we have been living here for 100 of generations and own vast quantity of land and other property
in Malnad/mysore/bangalore/shimoga. We are the original natives
Now people like you coming from neighboring states and tell us to quit?
This must be a joke. Please mind your own business
ou are nobody to tell me to quit karnataka.
What the hell makes you think that I have ‘come from a neighbouring state’? Telepathic powers, huh?
As Sandesh has pointd out, I am a little confused between the two ‘kannadiga’s on this page now. My comment was directed at ‘kannadiga’ who posted comments on 8 October 2008 at 1:39 am.
My id has been hijacked by another spurious and malicious kannadiga on this site. Henceforth, I shall be known as kannadiga:)…kannadiga with a smile.
I have nothing to do with postings of the impostor kannadiga deriding TATA,BSY, Gujarat, Modi and his uncle.
shifting of Nano to Gujarath is discussed from different vantage points. Protestors like Medha Patkar, Arundathi Roy, etc, political opponents like Mamatha Banerjee, ruling communist party, and NGOs should do some serious introspection. But will they?
No doubt those farmers who were not ready to give their land might have been benefited for sure in the short term. But only the future development will give the verdict on this. What was missing in all this drama was the hidden or obvious societal force to generate maximum welfare for all. What will happen to all those majority framers who are also poor? Will they be taken care of now? What will happen to their promised job? Even if they get back their land, what will they be able to do there?
Every actor in this sad drams was driven by what was close to their heart while claiming their stand to support the downtrodden. With future investment in West Bengal drying up, West Bengal will soon join the ranks of BIMARU states unless the people will join together and bring about dramatic changes soon. Will any investor dare to plan to build a new factory in West Bengal?
As I mentioned in the beginning, we have analyzed the situation only from the point of view of activists and politicians. But let us also see from the point of view of shareholders of Tatas. This was a monumental blunder on the part of Ratan Tata to have taken the decision to invest in Singur. The shareholders lost crores. As a good manager, he should have considered the risks of not getting all the land versus the economic benefits promised by the ruling party. A good manager with an insight would not have chosen a state like West Bengal where political situation is very fluid. This will go down in management books as a great blunder committed by Tatas and will be good case study for future managers to learn about strategic planning.
Mysore seems to have chequered history about automobiles. In 1940, Walchand wanted to start his Automobile factory in Mysore but British support was lacking leading to Maharaja’s refusal. Yet the Maharaja after independence lent his own money to help F.K.Irani to start JAWA ( As a coincidence the word JAWA is an abbreviation of JA-yachamaraja WA-diyar). But state did nothing to save it. Though Tayota has already got a car plant in the state, it has not become a State approved car for the Minister’s to use ! Maharaja’s sister was married to Thakur of Sanand and now Tata’s have moved to Sanand. We have a real Nano in REVA but state is doing precious little to popularize it . There is no real Tax brake to reduce its price. Even now it is not tool late, wake up BSY and your bit for ecology !
I forgot to mention about Sipani Automoblies (SAIL). It started with a three wheeler called Badal in 1978. But soon graduated to manufacture a four wheeler – a real small car with fiber glass body an two doors, called Dolphin. It was as good any we had at that time. Next came Montana and Montana D and real sedan in Montego. Only there was no support by the State or center and with the onslaught of Maruti it just folded up. Again our local boy Anil son of Bangalore Mayor A.K. Ananatha Krishna produced an Electric Two wheeler way bcak in 1982 called Electro Anil . But again due to lack of support and commercial success soon folded up. He is back again trying his luck.
In the last elections, one Syed Sajjad Ahmed became a candidate in Chamarajpet constituency just to get some publicity to his electro-solar cart with which he went around canvassing.
Mysore’s Somender Singh has made some ingenious designs about improving Engine performance and has US patents and awards . See http://somender-singh.com/. But despite proven records and accolades hardly any support is forthcoming. This is despite the astounding claim that by using Mr. Singh’s invention, the yearly national fuel savings would equal the amount of oil America imports from the Persian Gulf.
It is difficult to fathom the ways of the Government why they want to go and fall head over heels at the Big Dada’s s of the Industry when with little help and Tax breaks our local talent would have done wonders long back.
Sipani’s vehicles were mostly UK built designs (reliant, rover), and were technically upto the mark (at least for the times – esp. the dolphin – which was the reliant kitten).
Sipani was also notorious for their callous attitude towards the consumer. But maybe that is how things were in the heydays days of the license permit raj – no one cared about the customers. Ironically Maruti and their collaboration with Suzuki was one of the first to introduce quality as an important aspect of the manufacturing processes in India.
This is something I read long back…not sure if it’s accurate though..
Maruti was Sanjay Gandhi’s “People’s car”. Meant to be cheap, within the reach of the common man.
However, the Maruti that finally got made was not the direct product of Sanjay’s effort.
There was another “People’s car” that’s making waves to this day…Volkswagen. Hitler’s brain child. Turned out to be a huge scam since booking funds were diverted toward financing his war machine. However, Hitler had something to do with it’s initial design.
Congress misrule for last few years in Karnataka? have you lost your marbles?
If Bangalore is known as the IT city of India, it is because of the exemplary vision showed by Congress’ SM Krishna.
Bangalore is also known as the Engineering city of India….thanks to the smart policiies of congress….other states were left behind in the rat race.
Bangalore is famous throughout the world ..as the Silicon City..thanks to congress..now your staid defense will be that IT honchos made Bangalore what it is…
In that way, Modi should get zero credit for getting Nano in Gujarat. SM Krishna created a favorable climate for IT industry…you cannot forget it.
today, if you are watching movies sitting in multiplexes, today if you are watching 100s of TV channels, today if you are enjoying a fat salary, today if you and your maidservant has a mobile, today if you are enjoying private FM channels, today if you have a slew of private banks to bank with, today if you have a slew of insurance companies, tday if you know that an Indian called Rakesh Sharma had gone to the space, today if you know that India stunned the world with its nuclear tests in 1970s, today if india is proud of its navratnas, today if india is enjoying a fantastic growth rate, today if we have an astonishing choice in electronics, in home furnishing, in restarurants, in schools, in colleges, almost every aspect of life, it is all because of the Congress’ liberalisation in 1991. there are 1000s of examples for which we owe the congress too. all you need to have is gratitude, instead fo whining like an abandaoned puppy on the street all the time.
Congress revolutionised indian economy.
Congress has now revolutionsed indian nuclear scene, by ending 35 years of nuclear aparthied.
The IT industry in Bangalore pre-dates SMK by several years. It had been through years of rule by other parties and chief ministers. During SMK’s time there was a brand of looting and cornering for his favourites including his son in law. Of course not that things were any better in previous/current regimes.
Simple AKA Wrong Facts AKA ( I have forgotten your other names, sorry about that!!!!), I always believed that your earlier name suited you well… you prove me right again and again and yet again!!!
Give one good reason why Narendra Modi does not deserve credit for getting the NANO project to his state???
The rest of your blah blah blah.. is not worth commenting upon!!!!
Chintaka, comical adulteration of COMMUNALIST and COMMUNIST
Buddhadeb deserved better credit than Nano, simply because Buddha was the first to invite Tatas.
if modi deserves credit for nano, sm krishna deserves credit for spearheading IT revolution, Congress deserves credit for shaking up the world with its nuclear test in 1970s, congress deserves the credit for the nuclear deal in 2008, congres deserves credit for liberalisation 1n 1991
virtually, every aspect of your life today can be routed back to liberalisation of the 1990s. malls, mobiles, foreign channels, foreign magazines, private FM channels, multinational banks, Foreign insurance companies, international quality consumer goods, ….etc etc.
Simple… things are not this simple…. may be you cannot comprehend the true ramifications of an event… Like I said.. wrong facts… what a name….
I remember this dialogue from a movie….
It is not important who will first start the race… it is important who will finish the race first!!!!
By that yardstick, it might be true that Buddha invited TATAs first… but poor fellow.. he never really thought he would be facing this kind of resistance… a bitter pill for him….
SM Krishna spearheaded the IT Revolution?? Duh.. wake up man… the only thing he did was to ensure that his son in law got the right contacts at the right time.. nothing beyond that…
Incidentally, Texas Instruments was the first company to start its IT operations in Bengalooru and that happened way back in 1984-85. Was SMK CM then????
Similarly, when Business Today brought out its first ever compilation of the Best Cities in India to Work, Bengalooru topped the list. And that was in the year 1996. Was SMK CM then???
As I keep mentioning to you.. your facts all always wrong. Not that I blame you.. like your owners, the Gandhi Family, who glow in the borrowed halo of the surname of a great Indian, you also try to give CONgress all the credit.. yatha raja thatha praja.. in your case, like master.. like servant!!!
Tell me one thing.. why in the world did you ever change your name here.. WrongFacts… that was really really apt for you!!!!!
Chintaka, an palatable mix of COMMunalist and COMMunist
You seem to be quoting selecitvely, to add weight to your emaciated argument.
you say it is not important who started the race, but who will finish it.
BJP started the nuclear deal, Congress finished it, against insurmountable odds, against a childish opposition, Congress has given us the greatest gift India has known in recent years. At least acknowledge that.
Buddha invite tata. oppostion came from your BJP ally cum enemy cum ally cum enemy Ms. Mamata. Congress did not stoke the fires. it was a responsible opposition. It did not oppose Nano just because it is in the opposition in Bengal..
In gujarat too, congress is not opposing the Nano, just because it is in opposition. that is the greatness of a party. it believes in putting India first, rather than the party first.
Unlik your paymasters, the BJP, which believes in putting party first, india second. Which is why they continue to shrilly oppose the nuclear deal. irresponsible opposition.
you are talking about one business today. what a joke. there were several weeklies and several publications which put SM krishna as best chief minister along with Mr. Chandrababu Naidu. SM Krishna inititated several policies which gave a tremendous boost to IT industry in Bangalore.
Forget that. Who initated liberalisation? virtually, every aspect of your life today can be routed back to liberalisation of the 1990s. malls, mobiles, foreign channels, foreign magazines, private FM channels, multinational banks, Foreign insurance companies, international quality consumer goods, ….etc etc.
If SMK was as good as the various weeklies and other publications projected, why did he lose the election the next time around?? Forget about losing the election, for the current one, he was not even considered in the Congress for any post!!!!!
Congress conned the people big time in this nuclear deal. Look at what happened to its biggest ally, the communists??? They walked out of the alliance!!!!
Hey.. you still have not answered me why you changed your name?????
Incidentally, the reason why I quoted BT was that it was the first ever survey conducted by any publication, weekly – monthly – fortnightly, about the competitiveness of Indian cities when it comes to business.
So even before the arrival of SMK, Bangalore was well entrenched as the IT capital of this country.
Like I mentioned in my earlier post, you are like your masters.. the Gandhi Family.. living in borrowed halo…
So any reasons why you changed your name?????
Wrongfact… tch tch… what an apt name…..take it back man… !!!!!
Chintaka, a disgusting cocktail of COMMUNIST and COMMUNALIST,
SMK lost elections….because people like you did not vote for congress, inspite of the fact that he was the best chief minster ever. people like you cannot stand the congress, even if they do good. people like you will vote for the BJP, even if it gives a totally hopeless governance.
Which people did congress con on the nuclear deal? if tomorrow your child has energy to run his business, to run his home, to travel, it will be because of the congress nuclear deal with USA. this has opened the doors to do business with the rest of the world. we shall now be gettting fuel, technology and what not.
our nuclear industry was starved for the past 34 years…a desperately power starved nation neeeds energy and Congress has done you and your son a big favour with this brilliant deal. forget communists, their masters are china. they think about chinese welfare rather than indians…are u one of the communists who think more about chinese than indians?
The urban karnataka human being voted overwhelmingly for SM KRishna..congress won 8 out the 12 assembly seats in bangalore in the 2003 assembly polls. so the educated know who to vote. get your facts right. as usual you are predictably wrong. wrong on all facts and figures. we can’t debate if you insist on saying 5+5=9
And please decide who you owe your existance to – Communists or Communalists…stick to one party instead of keeping one leg in each of their offices….dangerously who will fall like a heap.
