#Karnataka Free Rice scam falls flat.

CONgress Poll Promise: Free 10 Kg rice every person. Yes not 10 Kg per family, it was per person.

So Amar with one child's family gets 30 Kg per month.

Akbar with two wives and 12 children must get 150 Kg per month. ImageImageImageImage
Anthony with three children gets 50 Kg Rice per month.

CONgress in its wildest dreams didn't expect to win the elections, but thanks to freebie loving Hindus and Sharia loving Muslims they won. Now all their promises are falling flat.

👉🏼 CONgress planned to
hop on 5 Kg free rice Modi Govt was giving and planned to purchase Modi Govt funded discounted rice, but due to late monsoon Modi Govt has stopped all sales nationwide. As usual Pidis tried attackin Modi, but after facts were out it backfired.

Salem Nanjundaiah (SN) Subba Rao was a Gandhian who Subba Rao supported communal harmony and participated in the Indian freedom movement as a child before setting up an ashram in the #Chambal Valley.

#FreedomFighter #SocialActivist #Humanity #Karnataka #History #TheBetterIndia Image
Inspired by the calls for freedom from British rule, Subba Rao was scribbling ‘Quit India’ on street walls in the city when he was arrested by the colonial police. After spending a day in police custody, he got released.
The arrest, however, didn’t diminish his desire to fight, and he participated actively in various programs. In school, he was inspired by the teachings of Gandhi and even became an advocate for khadi wear.

“While working towards improving the living conditions of the poor, I learned how deeply the issue of bonded labor has penetrated the rural areas.

Read about his journey:

#HeroesOfHumanity #GoodDeeds #Kindness #People #Karnataka #TheBetterIndia Image
The practice was officially abolished in the 1970s, yet it was as alive as ever. I had learned about bonded labor while studying, but witnessing it first-hand was chilling and horrifying,”
Dr. Kiran Prasad from #Karnataka has been working to rescue and rehabilitate bonded laborers, fighting years of casteism by providing legal aid to those in need.

“My life wouldn’t have been this happy and lively without this cycle. It has kept me away from health issues," says the 74-year-old Jyotsana Kagal, who has proved that age is just a number and that one can pursue their dreams and passions at any stage. Image
Growing up in the Bankikodla village of Gokarna, Jyotsna had always been fascinated by bicycles and watched men and boys riding them with wonder. At 14, she borrowed bikes from her neighbours and taught herself to ride.

When she began working as an Anganwadi worker,
she purchased her first bicycle in 1968, as until then, she had been riding boys’ bicycles. Only after buying her own bike did she ride a ladies’ bicycle. In 1976, Jyotsna even caught a thief by chasing him on her bicycle, which remains her favourite adventure on the gear.

No Information as such today....
Just genuine suggestions out of concern!

I'm nobody to give advice or suggestion to any Senior Politician or Leader! But still opening up my mind!

Let me come to subject.... BMC Elections!!

I'm sure that #Maharashtra NDA Govt will not repeat mistake of #Karnataka BJP Govt of not sensing Public Mood by delaying Local Body Polls. I think notification for Local Body Polls after Monsoon will be issued anytime in August. I would just like to point certain facts.

This is Golden & maybe, Last chance for BJP to get Richest Municipal Corporation of Asia under control for 1st time. But some acts need to be pulled together.
🔸NDA Govt in Maharashtra MUST ensure Potholes Free Roads & No Water-logging in Mumbai in coming monsoon.

India is a veritable #TowerofBabel, with more than two dozen official languages and hundreds of dialects.

This has caused lots of tension because everyone wants to preserve their culture. There's also the feeling that there should be some link language to connect the whole.
For a long time, #English was the link language, but self-styled nationalists, especially from the ruling #BJP, felt this was a betrayal of "Indian" values.

So they kept pushing for the use of #Hindi as the #NationalLanguage.

But Hindi is not even spoken by a majority (>50%) of Indians. It is merely spoken by the most Indians.

So people of other ethnicities worry that under Hindi domination, their languages would disappear.

A three-language formula was suggested as far back as the 1960s.

In #Karnataka , demand for #TwoLanguagePolicy in education is not a new thing even in 1968 there were calls to not to implement #ThreeLanguagePolicy

People just love to lay the blame squarely on #Biharis. Let me show you an example of what 'abba-jabba-dabba' method actually means. Let's take recent #Karnataka elections for an example.
Bommai renovated and restored the sugar factory in Mandya which had been stopped for decades. BJP went down to the 3rd place. @BJP4India also lost Yadagiri, Haveri, and Chikmagalur constituencies that have new medical colleges now.
Try airports - @BJP4India lost in Hassan which has permission for the new airport. Shimoga Rural where a new airport has been built was also lost by BJP. So airports also don't work like factories & medical colleges.

@BCNagesh_bjp has lost his reelection campaign. It's a relief. Why? Watch this documentary by @DeutscheWelle: & read this thread to appreciate implications were Nagesh back in power.
@BCNagesh_bjp @DeutscheWelle As a core member of @BJP4India & @RSSorg, & more particularly as the Education Minister of Karnataka under @BSBommai as @CMofKarnataka, Nagesh piloted one of the most devastating attacks on history, culture & literature in the state.
@BCNagesh_bjp @DeutscheWelle @BJP4India @RSSorg @BSBommai @CMofKarnataka He aggressively manipulated school texts and forced kids to read RSS trash. He was essentially pushing to place several books that are found in a bookstore next to my office. Image

Not complicated. Many factors but comes down to Hindu unity. Dharmic unity's point is to defend pluralism, yet to sustain it - it has to be rooted in dignity, opportunity, mobility. Our Gods overlap but some of us want to be in watertight compartments.
#DharmaSangathan #Karnataka Image
Beyond creating some awareness in all sincerity, there is no point bemoaning it. Socio-econ trends vary from country to country but they aren’t completely unique either. Here too, it will play out well over time. Modernity suits Dharmic values/polities in a way feudalism doesn’t.
Whenever BJP seems more secure, certain type surfaces saying X and Y same, Hindu unity meaningless, first remove quotas etc.

But with INC get more caste *and* religious quotas. If you want to vote your caste etc, fine. If you want to vote as a Hindu, please do not fool yourself.

The #KarnatakaElectionResults reminds me of few things @jsaideepak said at Karnavati Literature & Film Festival -
Thread 🧵

1. Our destinies, our interest, our Hindu Hith, everything is tied to one political option, which was not the case in 50s, 60s and 70s because cultural
organisations were equally investing on the Congress and on the BJP at that time. That is the strategy of other communities and it makes sense because whoever comes to power, the 1st thing they say is "Hum Minorities ke liye itna pesa dete hai". Everybody is forced to say that.
But it is not the same compulsion for every Government to say that "Humne Hinduo ke liye itna kiya hai".

2. There is no guarantee that a particular political party will stay in power forever and #Karnataka is the current example. Which is why, it makes much more sense to invest

It's now 12.21 pm, and the #KarnatakaElectionResults are firming up.

#CongressParty is leading in 124/224 seats, and #BJP is leading in 70, according to the #ECI website.

Whatever horse trading happens now, it is clear that this is a humiliating defeat for #PMModi

#Modi put his personal prestige on the line and addressed several mega rallies in Karnataka. The roads of Bangalore were closed off for several days so that Modi could do his roadshows.

Given all that, this is a huge #flop

Modi's image has taken a beating.

What this tells us is that:

Modi cannot make up for lousy governance.

The #doubleenginesarkara has failed #Karnataka

Other states may have doubts about enlisting Modi's help when their turn comes.
