Robinhood of Delhi ?
All of last evening , experts were debating on TV channels ,
” Is Kejriwal robbing Peter ( rich ) to pay Paul ( poor ) ? ”
They were discussing the losses that Delhi treasury will suffer ( approx Rs 25-35 Crores per month ) due to ,
> 20 KL 0f free water
> 50 % subsidy on power ( up to 400 units / month )
But AAP leaders are saying ,
” If Peter is rich and Paul is poor , then there is nothing wrong with robbing Peter to pay Paul ”
What they are leaving unsaid is ,
” It is better to be a Robinhood than to be a Robbing Hoodlum !
Robbing Hoodlums of Congress governments have been robbing the poor for the past 66 years and making the rich richer, and poor poorer !
Dear Experts ,
Will you please explain ,
> Who got Rs 50,00000 Crores worth of Scam money in last 15 years ?
> Who have deposited Rs 300,000 Crores worth of black money in Swiss banks ?
> Which Industrialists / Businessmen have failed to return to the Nationalized Banks , Rs 200,000 Crores of loans – without any efforts at recovering the same ?
> Which private money-lenders are making 20,000 farmers commit suicide every year , for failing to repay their small loans ?
> Who are all travelling Air India on subsidized air-fares , which has bled the Government of Rs 100,000 Crores in past 15 years ?
> To which businessmen have State and Central governments gave away – almost free – Rs 500,000 Crores worth of farming land to set up SEZ ?
> How many sick ( ICU ? ) Public Sector Units have the poor people of India kept ” alive ” , by subsidizing them to the tune of Rs 100,000 ,000 Crores over the past 60 years ?
Who got this money ?
And if you dispute our figures , will you tell us the correct figures ? ”
But since these ” self-appointed economic experts ” have no honest answers to these questions , they are telling AAP government ,
” You are not supposed to fulfill your poll promises by increasing the EXISTING levels of subsidy on water and power
If you have only a few hours to survive , within that period , why don’t you ,
> Lay 150 Km of water pipe lines ?
> Install 20 lakh new water meters / replace 10 lakh defective ones ?
> Ditto for Electric meters
> Get CAG to finish its audit of 3 Discoms ?
> Get DERC to announce new tariff , revised downwards by 50 % ?
> Float tenders , finalize and appoint 6 Discoms ( to replace existing 3 ) ?
> Study 200 files of CWG Scam tenders and file cases against corrupt government officers / contractors / politicians , who minted money ?
Why can’t you do these things by tomorrow evening ?
Don’t you know , extending existing subsidy % , is bad economics , even if it is good politics ?
In any case , by precedence of past 60 years , bad economics has been solely our prerogative
How dare you copy us , then claim originality ? ”
AAP may choose not to answer
But by May / June 2014 , 760 million voters will
And depressed / tortured / raped / murdered / looted people around the World , will applaud an alternative to violent Arab Spring !
Mahatma will rise from the Rajghat !
