LETTER TO PRIME MINISTER …By PRAKASH A BAJAJ

Dear Mr. Prime minister

I am a typical mouse from Mumbai. In the local train compartment which has capacity of 100 persons, I travel with 500 more mouse. Mouse at least squeak but we don’t even do that.

Today I heard your speech. In which you said ‘NO BODY WOULD BE SPARED’. I would like to remind you that fourteen years has passed since serial bomb blast in Mumbai took place. Dawood was the main conspirator. Till today he is not caught. All our bolywood actors, our builders, our Gutka king meets him but your Government can not catch him. Reason is simple; all your ministers are hand in glove with him. If any attempt is made to catch him everybody will be exposed. Your statement ‘NOBODY WOULD BE SPARED’ is nothing but a cruel joke on this unfortunate people of India .

Enough is enough. As such after seeing terrorist attack carried out by about a dozen young boys I realize that if same thing continues days are not away when terrorist will attack by air, destroy our nuclear reactor and there will be one more Hiroshima .

We the people are left with only one mantra. Womb to Bomb to Tomb. You promised Mumbaikar Shanghai what you have given us is Jalianwala Baug.

Today only your home minister resigned. What took you so long to kick out this joker? Only reason was that he was loyal to Gandhi family. Loyalty to Gandhi family is more important than blood of innocent people, isn’t it?

I am born and bought up in Mumbai for last fifty eight years. Believe me corruption in Maharashtra is worse than that in Bihar . Look at all the politician, Sharad Pawar, Chagan Bhujbal, Narayan Rane, Bal Thackray , Gopinath Munde, Raj Thackray, Vilasrao Deshmukh all are rolling in money. Vilasrao Deshmukh is one of the worst Chief minister I have seen. His only business is to increase the FSI every other day, make money and send it to Delhi so Congress can fight next election. Now the clown has found new way and will increase FSI for fisherman so they can build concrete house right on sea shore. Next time terrorist can comfortably live in those house , enjoy the beauty of sea and then attack the Mumbai at their will.

Recently I had to purchase house in Mumbai. I met about two dozen builders. Everybody wanted about 30% in black. A common person like me knows this and with all your intelligent agency & CBI you and your finance minister are not aware of it.. Where all the black money goes? To the underworld isn’t it? Our politicians take help of these goondas to vacate people by force. I myself was victim of it. If you have time please come to me, I will tell you everything.

If this has been land of fools, idiots then I would not have ever cared to write you this letter. Just see the tragedy, on one side we are reaching moon, people are so intelligent and on other side you politician has converted nectar into deadly poison. I am everything Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Schedule caste, OBC, Muslim OBC, Christian Schedule caste, Creamy Schedule caste only what I am not is INDIAN. You politician have raped every part of mother India by your policy of divide and rule.

Take example of former president Abdul Kalam. Such a intelligent person, such a fine human being. You politician didn’t even spare him. Your party along with opposition joined the hands, because politician feels they are supreme and there is no place for good person.

Dear Mr Prime minister you are one of the most intelligent person, most learned person. Just wake up, be a real SARDAR. First and foremost expose all selfish politician. Ask Swiss bank to give name of all Indian account holder. Give reins of CBI to independent agency. Let them find wolf among us.. There will be political upheaval but that will better than dance of death which we are witnessing every day. Just give us ambient where we can work honestly and without fear. Let there be rule of law. Everything else will be taken care of.

Choice is yours Mr. Prime Minister. Do you want to be lead by one person or you want to lead the nation of 100 Crore people?

    Dear Mr. Prime Minister
    I am a typical mouse from Mumbai. In the local train compartment which has a capacity for 100 persons, I travel with 500 more mice. A mouse at least squeaks, but we don’t even do that.

Your statement ‘NOBODY WOULD BE SPARED’ is nothing but a cruel joke on the unfortunate people of India.
    Enough is enough. After seeing this terrorist attack carried out by a dozen young boys, I realize that if the same policy continues, days are not away when terrorists will attack India by air, destroy our nuclear reactors and there could be one more Hiroshima.

    Take the example of our former president Abdul Kalam. He is such an intelligent person and such a fine human being. Politicians like you didn’t even spare him. Your party, along with the perverted opposition, joined hands, because politicians feel they are supreme and that there is no place for a good person.

    Prakash:

    You wrote a beautiful letter.

    I have corrected a few places in the hope that you will publish this .

    Some minor English language issues have been corrected.

    The material is superb!
    Congratulations!

    Hypothetical Reply from the PM copied from some other forum :

    Dear Mr. Mouse,
    It is finally a relief to be able to hear your squeak in person. I am now convinced that though you are definitely not mute, you certainly are dumb.
    I accept the fact that I said “Nobody would be spared”. However, this is a country governed by law, not a dictatorship regime, hence, I can punish someone only after their guilt is proven in court, not based on the squeaks of mice. I might add that Dawood’s guilt is proven and not only is the entire government security apparatus trailing him, but that there is also a red-corner Interpol notice and a reward for his arrest and capture. Also, if you would help me to prove which of my ministers are in cohorts with these criminals, I shall be the first to punish them.
    I agree with you when you say – Enough is enough. As long as there are traitor mice in our midst who will sell the safety of the country by offering safe haven to such terrorists, nothing will change. I must remind you that as the terrorists came to Mumbai, they definitely had local support from within – from some of those mice you mention in your letter. As long as such traitors exist, even the most heavily fortified installations are at risk.
    I understand that you are born and bought up in Mumbai for last fifty eight years. I also believe you when you say that corruption in Maharashtra is worse than that in Bihar. However, you must remember that in bribery and corruption, there are two sides – the taker and the giver. Now, ask yourself: Who is the giver? Is it not one of you that’s equally responsible for the way things are? Is it not you that’s paying 30% black money to the builder? Please do not think that I am shirking away from admitting to my share of the blame, but you must realize that I don’t have a magic wand to wave away corruption one fine morning.
    You state: Vilasrao Deshmukh is one of the worst Chief minister I have seen. His only business is to increase the FSI every other day, make money and send it to Delhi so Congress can fight next election. Now the clown has found new way and will increase FSI for fisherman so they can build concrete house right on sea shore. Next time terrorist can comfortably live in those house , enjoy the beauty of sea and then attack the Mumbai at their will. So let me ask you, who was it that elected this “clown” to power? It certainly wasn’t me, you see.
    The problem with mice like you is just that you are too comfortable in your arm chair shooting off letters to the PM. How about moving your a** off of the chair and doing something? You keep blaming the system for what it is – how about realizing that you are part of that evil system yourself? How about some action from you? How about a bit of thinking before casting your vote in the next elections? How about saying a firm “No” to the local MP when he comes over to “buy” your vote by offering you free booze?
    All of that said, I must admit that our party has made some mistakes. But remember, everyone makes them. There are certain factions in our coalition that have their own agendas and they drag us in a different direction at times. It is at such times that I feel sad in my heart about the fact that though everyone is suffering, no one wants to actually make any change. For example, what did the mice in Mumbai do when the goondas of MNS went on a rampage? They wasted no time in blaming the government for it. If you believe that caste and regional politics is wrong, why would you elect representatives of the Shiv Sena, MNS, RJD etc etc in every election?
    Now the choice is yours Mr. Mouse. Do you want to consider the good of the nation or will you keep voting into power the same politicians who keep dividing you based on religion? Are there any men left in this nation of 100 crore people or have all of them become the non-squeaking type of mice? The next election should tell us.

    Jai Hind!! Long live the Gandhi and Nehru dynasty!

    Note: Before you flame me about this comment, please note that this is a hypothetical reply and is to be taken with a pinch of salt. I’m not a supporter of any political party and I’m not saying that the PM is right or even that he is wrong. This is just a satirical piece designed to get the writer (and the reader) to think before making an accusation. Thanks!!

    Hi Prakash,

    What you have wriiten is the truth. Your article is published in Kannada daily Vijay Karnataka (page 8) appreciating your guts. It says the prime minister lacks the guts of even common man.

  5. priya

    hi,
    got this letter as a mail, and i googled to check whether this letter is from mr. prakash or somebody misused his address.now also i am not sure abt that,still i appreciate the matters in this letter.

    whatever may be, such a letter is required for our country now to woke up the politicians, and all general public hoping an action in the matters said.(else think about RULE 49-O)

    abt the comment by desi, india is still alive not only because of the system only, but because of so many indians, general public who are doing their best to keep this country safe and who is always away from the corruption. else with in this time our country and our republic will be no more.

    so please consider this letter is from a person who is always doing his best for the country and who is not ready to get corrupted himself.

    And those who forwarding this letter also hopes, our india should be republic country forever.

    jai hind.

  6. Rishun Gupta

    i am glad you people are very patriotic and that is being shown very well by forwarding this message as email….

    But quite sad toooo that you people waste such precious minutes of your life in just forwarding them…..Why don’t you people do some thing if you feel some thing about this incident. Rather than making this incident as a grapevine and entertain your self for few minutes why don’t you people do some thing???????????

    Rather than condeming Politicians and Higher Administration for all this, if you people think you are that smart and intelligent that you can manage a big country like ours with such a drastic population……Why don’t you take a firm step and do something.

    And if you think you don’t have the power or authority than you are mistaken, you are blessed with a great gift of the Man kind….”Democray”. People in US even don’t enjoy such freedom.

    We live in a great country and They people are doing their best they can. But rather than changing them, why don’t you start changing from your self…????

    LEt me know if you have any further concerns

  7. Nitin Gupta

    I know Rishun, u r right… but you cant justify about my(our) feeling(s) about the incident by just saying that every one can find faults, few can do better, I am trying to do the best in my own way. The less we say about it the sooner the incident will be forgotten, and I don’t want that.

    I m using my best power by telling all people to choose the right leaders while voting. Further the mail was not only pointing to our honorable prime minister (he is on the top of the Hierarchy); it is pointing to our whole bloody, corrupted politicians. They are just their own only, they creates the riots between any community just to get votes or straightening their owl. what I know about this if we wait for something to get done or to happen these terrorist seems to take forever, so I just want to convey the message to the people of India now the time is to take action otherwise the troubles seem to go on and on without end. People sometimes bark but in time our government should understand, they’re not always as frightening as they seem.

    I forwarded that mail; because I felt whatever is written in the mail is right, in my view. May be we have conflicts in our thoughts as no two persons are alike – every one has his own preferences, likes and dislikes, and I should not expect everyone to think and act as I do but I am trying and contributing in this matter by letting my friends know about the feeling of common man.

    I am really sorry if I hurt your emotions…

    Dear Prakash,
    What you have written is 1000% correct. I want to add comments on Mr.PMs comments.
    1. Also, if you would help me to prove which of my ministers are in cohorts with these criminals, I shall be the first to punish them – Give full rights to CBI and separate CBI from politics.
    2. They definitely had local support – Yes, I too agree but who is behind this, again politics and police. If some body knows some information and want to share with Police, is it really easy to enter Indian Police station to a common man? No? If you go to Police station, they will ask 100 of questions in their own language, which normal people never heard, please change the police system.
    3. Who was it that elected this “clown” to power? It certainly wasn’t me, you see. – Yes, again I am agreeing with Mr.PM. Yes we only selected such people and who ever participating in the election all are same background. Election commission as to come forward and implement all the rules available in Election commission. I want to share here, Until Mr.T.N. Sheshan nobody knows there will be one Election commissioner and he is having all the rights. Please I request Election Commissioner to implement all the rules available to avoid such politicians. And public, pleases be aware of article “49-O: The voter (or elector) deciding not to vote:” For details on this please visit the link “http://www.merinews.com/catFull.jsp?articleID=128152”

    So this is the time we have to take a decision on our Political system. I request to all, especially educated people to come forward to vote right candidates. Because of current political system, maximum educated people are not voting; please vote to right candidate, who is young, energetic, and non-criminal, so that we can become developed country by 2020.
    Please change the rule for selecting Indian President, as per my knowledge; I have not seen a single young person become president of India so far.

    Please again I request all young Indians come forward to change out country.
    JAI HIND…..
    Kumar

  9. Very much timely post. Read its Kannada translation in one of the Kannada newspapers and searched for the original one, hence got this.

    Felt good that elder and wise common person writes blogs!

    @ priya – this letter is a genuine one and sent by Mr. Prakash Bajaj. You can get in touch with him at prakashbbajaj at gmail dot com

    @ desi – you are the the typical wanna be kinds influenced by our bollywood movies like rang de basanti.

    this is real life, come out of your dream world into reality. THE SOLE REASON WE VOTE AND ELECT IS SO THAT OUR GOVT TAKES CARE OF US while we do our daily jobs

    your comment is like asking the share holder of a public company to be part of management himself if the company is not performing well and he is raising his voice

    we pay tax, we dont jump signals, we dont break the law, WHAT ELSE DO U EXPECT THE COMMON MAN TO DO? SHOULD WE QUIT OUR DAILY JOB AND START RUNNING THE GOVT?

    or should we pick up guns and start killing the ministers like aamir khan did in rang de basanti?

    when we are raising our voice in a civilized way, its wanna be fools like you (who just for the sake of sounding different from the crowd) screw things further

    mr. prakash bajaj had the balls to raise his voice – what have you done so far except for publishing foolish comments in this blog?

    – raj

  11. thnx prakash i reached this blog after i read it in vijaykarnataka we all support u

  12. thnx mr prakash iread ur blog after i read in vijayakarnataka news paper ,we all support u

  13. Prashanth

    @xtremebiz
    Though the comments from Desi looks influenced from Bollywood, I dont see any thing wrong in his questions.

    Difference is u(and most of us) are waiting for “Someone” to Rule/protect us…Which is not wrong BUT this expection is fine as long as we elect the right people.

    Now, u question me where are the “right” people…
    May be u, May be me…may be any Like Minded Person.

    Desi is only making an attempt to Question the System we are living with. When the System is dirty or Made dirty, It is up to us to live with the system or rectify the system. This Rectification should be from everyone, who is part of the society.

    May be, I will start from me -my family and friends while U can start with yours. When most of us do it, rest of us will follow doing it…Since this cause os noble and for good.

    Makes Sense?

    🙂

  14. our guruji read ur letter from vijaya karnataka news paper,we all were amazed by your views and completely support them.
    Let our government be successful in applying the constitution which is democratic,means for,by and to the ppl.

  15. Anuprita

    Good letter- but no use if the “PM” has not read it. Wish we could do more than just forward the mails and clog the mail traffic 🙂

    I went to the extent of checking if Mr.Bajaj has a real face to it or just one of the faceless forwards.
    Was happy to find that this was indeed genuine.

    Its indeed time we give away our chalta hai attitude and do some good to our nation.

    Bharat Mata ki jai !! Jaihind!!

    Preparing for war with Pakistan?

    Will we go to war with Pakistan?

    Such a question may seem premature, given that India had yet to conclude the battle for Mumbai that terrorists began two nights earlier.

    Secondly,

    war usually aims at regime change, but Pakistan’s businessman president looks like he genuinely wants peace, offering a visa-free regime and a no-first-use nuclear weapons policy, the latter repudiated by his own army (never a good sign).

    Thirdly,

    even if Pakistanis are involved, that does not automatically implicate the State, particularly if the terrorists are linked to “rogue-elements-within-the-state-within-the-state”, a dubious formulation for ISI cliques of the kind linked to the July bombing of India’s embassy in Kabul.

    Fourthly,

    if we go to war, what do we attack – things like a radical camp in Muridke and a mosque in Karachi? Lastly,

    if it turns out that most of the boys in the attack were from Gujarat, then there is little point in bombing the GHQ in Rawalpindi.

    The fact,

    however, is that no matter who is involved, and no matter what their motivation, the blame-game – as the visibly nervous Pakistani foreign minister visiting India called it – is already on.

    Our alpha-male prime minister said three things on TV:

    1. “The well-planned and well-orchestrated attacks, probably with external linkages, were intended to create a sense of panic, by choosing high profile targets and indiscriminately killing foreigners.”

    2.”It is evident that the group which carried out these attacks, based outside the country, had come with single-minded determination to create havoc in the commercial capital of the country.”

    3.We will take up strongly with our neighbours that the use of their territory for launching attacks on us will not be tolerated, and that there would be a cost if suitable measures are not taken by them.”

    For good measure, our PM has summoned Pakistan’s ISI chief to Delhi.Our foreign minister has followed with some stubby finger-pointing of his own, saying that Pakistan was involved, maybe.

    The Gujarat chief minister, not bound by the discretions of diplomacy, has challenged the government to take Pakistan to the UN for letting terrorists use its sea waters. All leaders are undoubtedly aware of the fact that Indians, despite being jaded by decades of terrorism, have been deeply angered, saddened, frustrated, depressed and embittered by the terror attack. They are also aware that general elections are around the corner.The government also knows that there has been massive intelligence failure, a fact which is obvious to even otherwise disinterested citizens. To blame Pakistan is to absolve oneself from any responsibility for this failure.

    But

    the blame is a double-edged sword, for it makes the government vulnerable to public pressure that will build in the coming days.

    Talking heads and newspaper columnists will feed upon this anger and fuel it further, adding to the pressure.

    There will be a common thread:

    our politicians are self-serving, the state is soft, and there has got to be payback.Even if the terrorists are Gujarati youngsters, there will be expert declarations of the trans-national “linkages” of terrorism, leading to cross-border culpability.

    An example of this linkage: the Gujarati who e-chats with a Malayali who bought a houseboat from a Kashmiri whose cousins live in PoK.

    Not an example:

    an extortionist shopkeeper who holidayed at a Kathmandu casino.Some will even argue that India should take advantage of the transition from the Bush administration to the Obama administration to “teach Pakistan a lesson”.

    The world is well into a recession, and the US is waiting for Obama to take office on January 20, 2009. Thus, a window of opportunity exists, since once Obama is in the White House it is likely that his administration would “discourage” any Indian action.

    In any case,

    he would be too distracted by the urgent need to stabilize the US economy and thus the world economy, even as time rapidly slips away.Such arguments would be ridiculous.Even Operation Parakram in 2002 took several weeks to mobilize (meaning the window of opportunity is too narrow), and in the end, its results were debatable. It is equally absurd to think that simply because Obama spoke of pursuing al Qaeda in Pakistan, he might allow any Indian initiative, albeit with a nudge and a wink, or even shoot from India’s shoulders.

    More likely,

    in the aftermath of this week’s terror attack, Obama will now forgo any initiative to push Indo-Pak peace (as part of a strategy to focus Pakistani energies on al Qaeda), or appoint a special envoy for Kashmir.Yet the pressure on the government will grow, and, let’s face it, whichever new government takes power after the next general elections will face the same pressure, particularly if there is another terrorist strike which, from all indications, looks unavoidable.

    Maybe a good way to relieve the pressure would be to bomb some known training camps in Bangladesh.

    But

    that would probably influence their national elections in December. Perhaps we should bomb a few camps in Pakistan; it is said that the training camps in PoK which were destroyed in the 2005 earthquake have been rebuilt. That, however, would probably mean the end of the goofy but amiable Asif Ali Zardari. Maybe we should just go and lob a few bombs in Iraq.If war is ruled out, then we don’t have much choice besides the prosaic option of beefing up our internal security.

    As unsexy as it sounds, it serves a dual purpose of a fiscal stimulus during a global recession; as it is, the government is begging banks and companies to unfreeze liquidity, but all that it’s getting for its troubles are a couple of blue faces. Government expenditure on a security infrastructure and central government loans to the states to modernize their police forces requires deficit financing, but these are times when deficit financing is a good thing, so long as it gets the wheels of the economy into gear.More boringly, the PM needs to come good soon on his promise for a federal investigating agency. Many existing agencies will oppose this, but they should be ignored, because India needs and exclusive, full-time antiterrorism agency.

    In order to avoid being another bureaucratic white elephant, it needs to be accountable on a day-to-day basis; accountable to the PM.

    Implicit in this accountability is a refocus of India’s intelligence community. As pointed out yesterday, the intelligence agencies of late have lost the plot. Terrorism needs to be made their priority again. Terrorism needs to be at the top of the intelligence chief ‘s daily morning briefing to the PM.

    Such a charter will ensure that the new agency does not degenerate into another bureaucratic dumping ground. It may take time to settle down, but it can be as effective as the US department of homeland security has been the past seven years. This administrative refocus and re-prioritization is the sensible way for our country to fight terrorism, even if it isn’t as sexy or viscerally satisfying as preparing for war.

    Dear Friends,

    Chhagan Bhujbal, a man who is single handidly responsible for aggravating all the corruption and decay in the Police system of Maharashtra during his last tenure as the Home Minister of Maharashtra has now been rewarded by Mr. Sharad Pawar by being again re-appointed as the Deputy Chief Minister and Home Minister of Maharashtra. He was removed as the Home Minister for his involvement in the Telgi scam. This is how the NCP under Mr. Sharad Pawar rewards the show of strength and solitarily of the citizens of Mumbai. It is now upto us to do something about this or just take it lying down.

    By Anand Holla

    Chhagan Bhujbal

    Just three days after taking oath as the state’s deputy chief minister, NCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal faced heat from the Bombay High court on Friday. The court made stringent remarks over revelatory police investigation notings, in which he had asked the police to consult him before making further arrests in the Sara Sahara shopping complex case.

    The HC issued notices to Bhujbal and other senior police officers, seeking explanations over the disclosures made by the investigation papers.

    In his petition admitted by HC earlier this year, former journalist Ketan Tirodkar had sought a probe into allegations that Bhujbal had prevented the arrest of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) then assistant municipal commissioner, Ravindra Wale, a suspect in the Sara Sahara case.

    Tirodkar’s case is based on the testimony of Shankar Kamble, the investigating officer in the case, in the Sara-Sahara trial, where Kamble testified that Bhujbal had instructed him to go slow on arresting Wale.

    The division bench of Justice F I Rebello and Justice R S Mohite on Friday opened the case investigation papers that the prosecution submitted, and perused Kamble’s notings.

    One of Kamble’s notings, the court learnt, informed about a meeting held in Mantralaya, which was apparently attended by Bhujbal, Kamble, and then Police Commissioner R S Sharma and then State Principal Secretary J D Virkar. In the meeting, the noting says that Bhujbal had asked them to not make further arrests in the case, without consulting him.

    Taking a serious view of this, the division bench remarked that it was ‘shocked and amazed’ at the way interferences happened in case investigations and that Kamble’s notings were even approved and endorsed by senior police officers like Sharma.

    The court remarked that in an organised crime syndicate case, headed by an international terrorist like Dawood Ibrahim, the state must give the police a free hand to make arrests, but on the contrary, it had created interferences.
    Lawyer Mubin Solkar, whom the court had earlier appointed as ‘amicus curiae’ in the matter, said, “The court stated that who to arrest and who not to, is the police’s domain and not that of the home ministry.”

    Maharashtra Director General of Police A N Roy, in a report submitted to the HC, has cleared Bhujbal in the case.

    Chief Public Prosecutor Satish Borulkar said, “Asking explanations, the court has issued notices to Bhujbal, Roy, Sharma, Virkar, and Kamble to file their affidavits, and adjourned the matter to January 7.”

    Sara Sahara Case

    According to police, the 2003 Sara Sahara shopping complex at Crawford market is the benami property of wanted don Dawood Ibrahim. It is an instance of Dawood pumping in huge investments into the city’s real-estate business, in connivance with BMC officials. Last June, the MCOCA court acquitted six accused including Dawood’s brother Iqbal, while convicting three others.

    Please forward this to all like-minded Mumbaikars and put it all over the world wide web and make sure it gets to Mr. Sharad Pawar somehow….we cannot let this happen to us.

    Pl forward to your friends………..

    Dear Friend,

    Never ever bring in your mind that this blood of thousands of innocent Indian will go waste. One day it will bring its color, “EK DIN YE KHUN RANG LAEYGA”. And that day can be today, tomorrow or day after? So don’t let take exams of our patience. Every time, militants and politicians cannot play with OUR feelings.
    For long time the Common Man has been suffering. But now the time have come that we raise our voice against these sufferings. Politicians should be made understand that they can’t take us and our respect granted just for the votes of minority. Now we have to get united to fight these activities by strengthening our powers and ask the government and these F**** politicians to take serious action to curb these terrorist activities or else face the challenges.
    Make your presence feel to these terrorists & politicians who have taken us as DUMB AND DEAF in this country. Don’t let the greedy politicians, who are always behind the votes of minority, take you as granted. It’s better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.
    Dear Congress, even Gandhi said “It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of non-violence to cover impotence”.
    Don’t wait till one of your near and dear one suffer. If you have little self respect left for your people then wake-up and start fighting for your rights.
    We should intensify the campaign to cleanse politics of the scum that has been the greatest impediment of development. These politicians are a far greater danger to our society.
    Get “POTA” or may be harder rule to curb terrorism. There is no need to sympathize with terrorist.
    If required, “President Rule” should also be welcome in INDIA.

    The following immediate steps are required to be taken by our Government to stop future terrorist attacks:-

    1.Scrapping of all business relations with Pakistan. Termination of Trains, Buses etc. to Pakistan and issue of visa to visit Pak.

    2.Passport should be made compulsory for all the people of Nepal for visiting India.

    3.Immediate action is required to send back Bangladeshi migrants who has come to India in last five years. Who has come earlier than this period must be issued identity cards for their status as Bangladeshi migrants.

    4.Security forces should be provided latest weapons immediately. All the states should build special police forces for the security of important buildings, railways stations, airports etc. in the state. This police force should be provided latest weapons like AK-47 etc. and should be trained to counter any possible terrorist attacks.

    NSG should be withdrawn from the Security of VIPs except for PM and President. The security for other VIPs should be handed over to CRPF/State Police. The NSG should be decentralized and it should be posted in various cities.

    5.A federal intelligent agency should be set up immediately to enquire and handle/stop crimes against the Nation. Proper investigations should be done for the blasts/terrorist attacks in recent times and everyone responsible should be booked under the law.

    6.A strict law should be made for crime of terrorism. Special court should be made to deal with cases related to terrorism to ensure speedy trials. The capital punishment whenever imposed by any court should be implemented without delay as in the case of Afzal Guru.

    7.Political reforms should be made. All the member of parliaments should have minimum educational qualifications and retirement age. Any one who has been found guilty and punished with imprisonment by court should not be illegible to fight elections.

    These are only immediate steps. They need do more than this to stop future blasts/attacks.

    SEE WHAT THE GOVERNMENT OF INDIA IS DOING

    Trying to divert the attention of people from main problems by issuing statements against Pakistan/verbal assurances and condemning the attacks verbally as in the past.

    Few careless and useless Ministers etc. like Shivraj Patil, Vilasrao Deshmukh, RR patil are made to resign to pacify the public anger. In fact these people should have been kicked out long back.

    Trying hard to make people forget all by playing politics of reservations, religion, casts etc. so that it can remain in power and win next elections.

    Nothing has been done by the Government after Mumbai Attacks on ground level. The time has come we should make this and any future governments realise that the people of India cannot bear the burden of terrorism any more. They should act or we will show them the door by voting against them.

    Let us unite together to fight terrorism and bring change in systems- HITESH KHANDELWAL

  22. Alexwebmaster

    Hello webmaster
    I would like to share with you a link to your site
    write me here preonrelt@mail.ru

  23. Absorbing, I go with your standpoint.

  24. Sourav

    Horrible English. I have serious doubts that this is written by an editor of TOI.

  25. Pradeep Thomas

    It is a nice letter , and I liked the contents – but I sure it was not written by the editor of TOI – just from the language used.

    Does anyone here feel that someone living at Chandralok Apartments , Nepean Sea Road ,Mumbai ,would travel by train that too in the 2nd class compartment, packed like mice? Just an observation.

    Also – as per the letter all politicians are crooked ( immaterial of the party) yet no educated middle class person wants to be a politician and change the system.Times of India had started a lead India campaign don’t know what happened to it?

    Feels like everyone adheres to the proverb – “Everyone wants to go to heaven, but no one wants to die.”

    just my observation.

  26. True reality, but………………………

    Please take my advice–Just get this letter in printing for atleast two-three month countinously in your news paper and everywhere accross india, so as every indian should read it atleast 10 times and hope they in turn can improve by just .5%, so each indian should think about this before making any decission toward our government and politicans.

    I know this article wonèt change so much in people, may be none of the thinking might alter a bit, as people are sleeping and donèt want to see the reality around them

    Only possible way to improve anything ,is to wake up our young generation.Lets there be proffessional career as (Social service), why canèt we have cooperate body like this.Let our young graduate,engineers take a career in this.

    Our young generation donèt want to join any social work, as they have family to support for, they need to earn bread for their family.If this is the only reason which keeping india behind to its progress.

    Let resolve it first.
    Lets do something to it ,let join our hand, never mind if we are few in number.
    We need to do something for our india before just dying like stupid idots.

  27. shwetha

    i have only one question….
    What can i do apart from waiting to vote in the next election and hoping there’s a worthwile candidate who’ll get elected and change things?

  28. vasudev

    we must have a system of election whereby we directly elect the pm and cabinet ministers. not just that, we must also elect the various secretaries and under-secretaries.

  29. vasudev

    sourav
    i too doubt whether a govt mouthpiece like the toi would ever write such a letter.

  30. jayashree

    Dear Prakash ,

    The great Slap to politicians….

    it’s good try to get aware about political poisons ,but only letter is not the solution, because 70% Indians are situated in villages and unable to read your letter thr’ e-mail,better you start some activity through times of India, start making groups from villages to metro cities of young generation, we are not opposed to politicians but to the political poison only and that political poison will only kill to India.Everybody is just read these mail and forward it nobody will start to take the 1st step. but we have to.

    As we know that to get IAS and IPS ,we need to cross lots of examinations then only we are cllector of city, But what about educational criteria in politics? Can anybody answer?

  31. VAIBHAV PATNI

    hi prakash,
    i too go with you,and totally support you,a very nice slap on the masked face of these politicians.Ask them to cokme down to public,remove your z-security and loose ya family member in a blast or somethng like tat,than they will understand how it feels to loose some one.sitting in a bullet proof car,surrounded by security,wnt make them understand our sorrows.

    Than he said about voting,ask him wat are the good option we left for as far as voting is considered,give us name of some well educated,non corrupted politician,give him a seat with out any opposition,than call us mouse,or ask us to move our a**…

  32. Namashkar Prakash ji,

    “You politicians have raped every part of Mother India by your policy of divide and rule.” this is written by you, you also said “here will be one more Hiroshima. We the people are left with only one mantra. Womb to Bomb to Tomb”.

    i feel one more HIROSHIMA is affordable rather than THIS.

  36. jass

    Congrats!! Mr Prakash got this letter in the email so googled it to reach here .
    he has very well pointed out the main perpetrator of Bombay92 blast are roaming free, there is no outcome inthe ongoing case, but i think forgot to mention that perpetrator of hari masjid firing are still to be tried in the court of law, this chap is from the very force which is suppose to protect its people.
    Some Mr Sarpotadar(even became MP from Bandra constituency) was caught redhanded distributing arms, became MP in 97, no mjaor arrest or or cry over it.
    Post Godhra(Unjustifianle and heinous act) Gujrat 2002, The person at Helm of it is hailed as champion of development.(Hitler too was achampion of development but that cannot hide his crimes).

    I think the writer missed the above points so just highlighted a few.
    plese don’t take me wrong..i’m firm beleiver of Democracy and stand by the Indian Constitution just need to apply the law in more Just way.
    Jai Hind!!

  37. i was beginning to feel i would possibly end up being the sole guy which thought about this, at least currently i recognize i’m not loonie 🙂 i’ll make sure to go and visit a few other articles just after i get a bit of caffeine in me, take care 🙂

  38. Sunny -- USA

    I guess the time has come for all of us (educated / caring) people to stand up to these corrupt politicians.

    Its been over 50 years that we have not seen any one like “Lal Bahadur Shashtri” who will put our country’s interest before himself. All the current politicians are corrupt including our PM Mr. Manmohan Singh. Our PM may not take money but he has not done any thing to stop it either. Who sides with the corrupt is corrupt.

    Now its for us to take our country back from these goondas. If EGYPT can overthrow a MILITARY DICTATOR then we can easily stand up to corrupt politicians. Indian Military should be helping us. Lets throw each and every corrupt politician out. Take back all the wealth they have amassed, all the illegal property they have acquired, Burn their houses, bring them to light. Send them to TIHAR Jail for eternity or just hang them. Why should we show mercy. Why should we not exact revenge. These dirty politicians have plundered our country for more than 50 years. Enough is Enough. Let them pay the price. Let a few die so the rest will learn their lesson.

    Lets have a 21st century ANDOLAN.
    So lets START on AUGUST 15 2011. A CALL TO EVERY INDIAN YOUTH.

    Indian people deserve lot more, Indian youth deserve lot better. To become a 1st WORLD COUNTRY we have to get rid of DIRTY Politicians FIRST. Just burn one politicians and the rest will surrender without a fight.

    JAI HIND.

  39. soosai rathinam

    Dear Mr.Prakash .B.Bajaj,You have forwarded a good, mind blowing message to our PM. Very thought provoking.You might have experienced not much difficulty which an ordinary Indian face in his everyday life in this country.People in India are not living. People are existing in India to justify the anti social activities of the powerful by means of vote. You might have read in the news that the voters are paid to vote. That is the meaning of democracy.

    I deeply express my contention that fishermen never support terrorists to intrude into our mother land. The terrorists were hosted in the Star hotels of mumbai. Fishermen of Mumbai area already informed the police about the terrorist’s intrusion which was reported by the press. Being a editor of reputed news, how can you hided the truth about fishermen?. Since time immemorial , fishermen were used to safe guard our land. India is safeguarded by fishermen from all the three sides. Now by introducing various legislations, the government bureaucrats are evacuating fishermen from their cradle and allowing the people like terrorist to enter in to our main land and carry out their destructive activities against India.

    I admire you for submitting such a letter to our most respectable prime minister. I am deadly against corruption and anti-social activities. But what is the hope?
    Whether we can start a campaign to kill corruption and anti-social elements from our most loved country.

    What is your idea about cleaning the ditches of Indian administration.

  40. bikramjit singh

    I don’t think this a letter by an Editor of TOI.

    He is very selecteive in highlighting the problems. How can the author forget to mention the state terrorism unleashed on the people of kashmir, tribal areas, punjab, north-east by the indian army and crpf? What about the destruction of babari masjid and gujrat genocide? What about the Bihari bashing in Maharashtra?

  41. Sanjay

    Dear Mr. Prakash,

    Thank you very much, you have given us an opportunity to share your thought. what ever you shared i agree with that. Approx 5% corrupt people can’t crush rest of the 95% innocent people. Our corrupt politicians, greedy businessman & corrupt bureaucrat can’t cheat us in the name of democracy. They should take lesson from recent event like Tunisia, Egypt & now Libya. They should must understand who is powerful 5% or 95%.

  42. Joe Fernandes

    I commend Mr. Prakash on his gutsy letter. Desi’s reply is also valid to a certain extent. After watching Egyptians get Mubarak out, all Indians should open their eyes. We need to get out and protest all corruption. My belief is that all politicians in office right now are corrupt. An so are most of the others that didn’t get elected. We have no choice in the way of candidates if we have to rely on those who regularly run for elections. We need new blood. We need the new generation to step forward and lead our great nation. All the world knows that India can be #1 if only the politicians and police are totally revamped. We really should look at alternatives – perhaps like temporary military rule, because this problem of corruption in India is too large and too deeply rooted.
    We must take back our country from these crooks. When we see a corrupt cop, or a babu, taking a bribe, we should go get other people (the whole chawl, mohalla, building society or wherever we live) and beat the daylights out of the crook. Little by little it will start to sink into their rotten brains that honesty is the best policy.

  43. Noreen

    Kudos to Mr.Bajaj ..it is high time we stripped our beloved Mantris of their Mr.Clean image they so love to project. Yes Mr.Bajaj this is indeed Freedom of Speech ..but do those deaf ears ever hear or those blind eyes ever read what is written to them. Or is it just another article for those who are voted to power by us because we impose our faith and trust in them only to be let down so badly and the icing on the cake they even ignore the written word. When will you ever wake up Mr.Mantri???? Or will you ever??!!

    Noreen

  44. Maria

    No they will never wake up on their own because it is not in their best interest to do so. It is in OUR best interest to wake them up. As somebody said earlier, their blood must be shed.
    Feed them the same medicine they give us.

  45. Noreen

    I most certainly agree with Joe Fernandes..what better way than to start the clean up starting from our Mantri Babus who are the elected voice of the people and our corrupt cops who are supposed to be around for security.
    Alas they shamefully speak a language only they understand and forget they are in the position to reperesent the people as servants of the people..instead they move around as self proclaimed Monarchs. And the cops the less said about those supporters and abettors of corruption of the highest degree the better it will be.
    But I agree something needs to be done from the lowest levels..the aam admi who has been taken for an everlasting ride..onward to the chawl, mohalla or residential societies. This is the primary and only way to begin this battle against corruption.

  46. Maria

    I appreciate the letter written by the Editor of TOI. Till these corrupt politicians are rooted out of the system, nothing can change. For a common man to come out in the open and point out the corruption by any politician is also not safe – the corrupt politician will send goondas after the pinpointer – it is happening – nothing can change. Corruption is from the peon to the highest office. Govt. officials are all involved.
    Tax payers pay heavy taxes and when they retire – they have nothing to fall back on. If they do not save for their old age – they are are pitiful lot – how much does a govt. hospitals can do with limited resources?
    India has to change and the reigns must be given to new middle age blood.

  47. vvd

    THE ORIGINAL LETTER:
    In the letter published above few statements are hidden. Here I am providing with original letter by Bajaj sir.

    Dear Mr. Prime minister,

    I am a typical mouse from Mumbai. In the local train compartment which has capacity of 100 persons, I travel with 500 more mice. Mouse at least squeaks, but we don’t even do that.

    Today I heard your speech, in which you said, ‘NO BODY WOULD BE SPARED’. I would like to remind you that fourteen years have passed since serial bomb blasts in Mumbai took place. Dawood was the main conspirator. Till today he is not caught. All our Bollywood actors, our builders, our Gutka king keep meeting him, but your Government can not catch him. Reason is simple; all your ministers are hand in glove with him. If any attempt is made to catch him, everybody will be exposed. Your statement ‘NOBODY WOULD BE SPARED’ is nothing but a cruel joke on these unfortunate people of India.
    Enough is enough. As such, after seeing terrorist attack carried out by about a dozen young boys, I realize that if same thing continues, days are not far away when terrorists will attack by air, destroy our nuclear reactors and there will be one more Hiroshima.
    We the people are left with only one mantra. Womb to Bomb to Tomb. You promised Mumbaikar Shanghai; what you have given us is Jalianwala Baug.
    Today only your home minister resigned. What took you so long to kick out this joker? Only reason was that he was loyal to Gandhi family. Loyalty to Gandhi family is more important than blood of innocent people, isn’t it?

    I am born and brought up in Mumbai for last fifty eight years. Believe me, corruption in Maharashtra is worse than that in Bihar. Look at all the politicians, Sharad Pawar, Chagan Bhujbal, Narayan Rane, Bal Thackray , Gopinath Munde, Raj Thackray, Vilasrao Deshmukh all are rolling in money. Vilasrao Deshmukh is one of the worst Chief ministers I have seen. His only business is to increase the FSI every other day, make money and send it to Delhi, so Congress can fight next election. Now the clown has found new way and will increase FSI for fishermen, so they can build concrete houses right on sea shore. Next time terrorists can comfortably live in those houses, enjoy the beauty of the sea and then attack our Mumbai at their will.

    Recently, I had to purchase a house in Mumbai. I met about two dozen builders. Everybody wanted about 30% in black. A common person like me knows this and with all your intelligent agency & CBI, you and your finance ministers are not aware of it . Where all the black money goes? To the underworld isn’t it? Our politicians take help of these goondas to vacate people by force. I myself was victim of it. If you have time please come to me, I will tell you everything.

    If this has been a land of fools, idiots, then I would not have ever cared to write to you this letter. Just see the tragedy. On one side we are reaching moon, people are so intelligent; and on the other side, you politicians have converted nectar into deadly poison. I am everything Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Schedule caste, OBC, Muslim OBC, Christian Schedule caste, and Creamy Schedule caste; only what I am not is INDIAN. You politicians have raped every part of Mother India by your policy of divide and rule.

    Take example of our Former President Abdul Kalam. Such an intelligent person; such a fine human being. But you politician didn’t even spare him and instead choose a worthless lady who had corruption charges and insignificant local polititian of Jalgaon WHO’S NAME ENTIRE COUNTRY HAD NOT HEARD BEFORE. Its simple logic your party just wanted a rubber stamp in the name of president. Imagine SHE IS SUPREME COMMANDAR OF INDIA’S THREE DEFENCE FORCES. what moral you will expect from our defence forces ? Your party along with opposition joined hands, because politicians feel they are supreme and there is no place for good person.

    Dear Mr Prime minister, you are one of the most intelligent persons, a most learned person. Just wake up, be a real SARDAR. First and foremost, expose all selfish politicians. Ask Swiss banks to give names of all Indian account holders. Give reins of CBI to independent agency. Let them find wolves among us. There will be political upheaval, but that will be better than dance of death which we are witnessing every day. Just give us ambience where we can work honestly and without fear. Let there be rule of law. Everything else will be taken care of.

    Choice is yours Mr. Prime Minister. Do you want to be lead by one person, or you want to lead the nation of 100 Crore people?

    Prakash B. Bajaj
    Editor Mumbai-Times of India

  48. WOW Guys! Its been ethereal and heart warming to hear so many individuals have voiced their concerns but don’t forget your audience sits inside thick layered walls of “BLACK MONEY”, “CORRUPTION” and “DENIAL BY VIRTUE PRINCIPLE”. It’s not even worth having a logical agenda for these worthless & impotent lunatics!

    Well, guess what we live in a “SYSTEM” that works to best serve “ITSELF”. You aka. the command man aka. the “PEST” are expendable resources whenever these goons see fit. I mean where do we live? In a feakin Democracy? Think again:

    “DOING GOOD BUSINESS?” + “BUZZER” = TAX
    “MAKING LOT OF MONEY?” + “BUZZER” = TAX
    “GETTING MARRIED?” + “BUZZER” = TAX
    “HAVING KIDS?” + “BUZZER” = TAX
    “AGAIN THINKING OF HAVING KIDS?” + “BUZZER” = TAX
    “THINKING OF BUYING A NEW HOME?” + “BUZZER” = TAX
    “HAVEN’T PAID TAX?” + “BUZZER” = TAX WITH A COMMENDABLE UNDERTABLE BONUS TO OUR SPECIAL FORCES WHO WE MOST WILLINGLY APPOINTED TO LEECH MONEY FROM YOU.
    “NONE OF THE ABOVE, WELL WE GOT NEWS FOR YOU! YOUR SPREADING TERRORISM!” + “BUZZER” = PROBABLY A JUVE FOR LIFETIME UNLESS YOU HAVE A VERY VERY GOOD LAWYER!

    Making fun of all this yeah well its all okay until you are not really pissed off at them and that you really expect these incompetant “IDIOTS” to protect you or to serve you. All that you bring by force, violence or corruption eventually ends!

  49. Jayaraj

    Dear All

    I have a solution to stop the terrorist attacks. Prakash Bajaj and scores of them have forgotten one thing. The solution. Where exactly it lies. Can you not guess. It is in implementing the Srikrishna report on Mumbai riots. When such a cry is made against Dawood and the so called links why we cannot even think of the root for all these. Does it not lie here very much. In the Bal Thackeray. His inflammatory speech. I would trace the links for all these innocent lives in this one man who is a nuisance to Mumbai. Equity and Justice should be done and let known.
    How many takers are there for my argument.

  50. Ankit Somani

    lovely letter…
    If this happens it will make our life heven…
    We will really do anything for our country.

    With the above all references- I believe that most Indians will speak out about their anger in the similar way(like all above). Although it is a welcome idea to raise our voice and go about circulating our idea about the public’s withheld anger VIA INTERNET, I am sure our concerns and spirit to fight back these monstrous corrupts will all go in vain. Politicians are least bothered and SHAMELESS more than ever therefore raging against them will be of no or little help. Unless we as people together DO NOT take on to the streets to showcasing our protest (which is strongly my sole opinion and not influenced by any political or personal means) like the recent middle eastern protests- we CANNOT defeat corruption from our country. Corruptions is embedded in every nation, but hardly is as grave as India’s. We get beaten in front of television to raising our voice against corrupt politicians. For instance, look at Kapil Sibal and Chidambram, they SIMPLY DENY allegations even with full proof evidences against scams and go about protecting and defending the pseudo Gandhis, Opps! I meant the NEHRUs.
    Blame game and internet will do no good to fight against corruption, we need to take it to street protests if we want a better future for tomorrow.

    Regards
    A concerned Indian.

  52. Punith C G

    Hello sir..!! read this after your sms and I remember reading this as a forward mail, but then I did not know it was from you. All your feelings are well expressed in your letter. And I appreciate your guts.
    But do you think such a letter would make any difference to them (corrupts) ? The hypothetical reply also needs to be given a thought. I have been thinking since I was 20 (I am 27 now) to fight against corruption, but kept quite because I felt, I should do something big one which stops all such corruption all of a sudden. Something like what Julian Assange (wikileaks) is doing right now (if the data given by him is genuine). And I still am thinking towards that but could not find any answer. But I still am hopeful that one day will come up with such an idea and I may need all you people’s help that day. Just hope that day comes ASAP. 🙂

  53. Manu Nair

    Dear Sir/,
    The above letter indicates that your Newspaper supports a Political party (everyone knows which one) while is it not the duty of the Media not be partial towards any political party whether it be the BJP, the JD (S) or the Congress Party. The media should be own its own without leaning to one or the other party. While your Newspaper (Times of India) have indicated the drawbacks of the Congress Party, is the BJP far behind from the number of scams and a number of other things!! The prohibiting of Media persons from entering the Metro Rail premises and taking of photographs of it shows the BJP in poor light. Water shortage, power shortage, murder, rape,robbery, theft, infrequent transport system, no parks for children to play, improper waste collections, bad roads, loss of greenery cover have been the so-called boons of the BJP party too to the citizens of Motherland India.
    As soon as a new Chief Minister takes over, a number of visits are taken to the temples rather than visiting the people living in that city or state and looking into the welfare of those people. Moreover it’s really shocking to see media persons banned from entering the Metro Rail premises and prohibiting them from taking photographs. Not only this, the city and the state have been subjected to a number of power cuts. Increase in prices of Dairy products shows a leaning towards vegetarians by the party whereas the choice needs to be left to the individual if he wants to be a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian.
    Here it is also necessary to bring to your attention that the Right to Property had been abolished where the Bharatiya Jananta Party had been a party to this too where the males have not been the losers but the women of our own Motherland, India as whenever the division of property takes place whether it belongs to the male or the female, in both cases it goes to the males rather than to the female counterpart of that family and thus the females occupy the backstage every time.
    Therefore no party has been ever accountable to its policies and programs and what we do need today is accountability of every political party on every decision they undertake as we are a ‘Democratic country and not a Dictatorship one!!Moreover horse trading also needs to be stopped at once!!

    Dear Mr. Bajaj,
    There is corruption and lack of responsibility in each and every part of the country and in every profession and business. That is because of a poor electorate-an electorate impoverished of literacy, education, information and good morals. As long as the electorate remains uneducated and ignorant of its own fundamental rights guaranteed by the 60 year old Constitution gubernatorial vices shall be present in all forms. So the key remains in educating ourselves first. Gone are the days when only illiterate and uneducated people used to be elected into the Parliament. Today you wont find a single known Parliamentarian who is Graduate-all are post graduates! Politics today is a game well played by the learned. So lets start learning from today. For starters: the plural of mouse is mice.

    The Nexus between the Politician, Terrorist and Industrialist can not be separated or eliminated through out the world due to socioeconomic problems. As a traditional land with topographical advantages , India can over come the current situation for ever by gradually concentrating more on Religion (calmness, Mutual Respect, values) and agriculture (Green Revolution) to help even the other developed countries in future.

  56. All this well known years ago by the gujurati /sindhi/marwadi communities and also many other intelligent people ,that do what u want “u have the right links&money u can get away with anythingh,Our people are become so engrossed in making it large in life ( in today’s sense a flat in metro with a SUV CAR is making it big ??? with EMI Pending all u r life for many ( working life of 58 years) they forget how the government is screwing them and still elect themm over and over again ,WE ARE VERY HOPE FUL CONGRESS IS TAKING INDIA IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION EVEN NOW???????????

  57. Bajaj’s letter to PM is superb. If you are working with Times, I have a question to ask you. Do you support Amity University management ? Are you willing to publish the real background of Amity and its owner ? If the answer is “NO”, then where is your honesty and media ethics?

  58. Times gets ads worth millions from Amity University every year and in return rate the University as “TOP RANKED”. Interpol issued red corner alert against the owner of Amity. German government issued arrest warrants against him. This was raised in Parliament by Mr. R.K.Anand.

    To Those who are for One Mr. Anna Hazare…
    Let me ask you two questions …
    1) Have you ever taken any bribes (black money) in your life (No matter how small or big)?
    2) Have you even given any bribes (Black Money) in your life (No matter how small or big)?

    If either of the Answers results in “YES” then please stop blaming the politicians. They too were the common man at one point or another.
    In stead, reform yourselves.

    Next time a person asks for BLACK Money, bring him/her to public court.

    Next time a person is willing to give BLACK money, bring him/her to public court.

    STOP GIVING BRIBES….

    Clean up starts from the With-In… STOP BLAMING OTHERS FOR EVERYTHING…
