Kerala LDF Government's double stand on liquor and drugs policy

There is a misconception in some people in Kerala about the reason for the defeat of the previous UDF government in Kerala. Though there are few solid reasons for the pathetic failure of the UDF, the main reason was the corruption allegations. It is not their liquor restriction policy that lead to their pitiable fall, as some people think and publicize. 

Even though the initiative of Senior Congress leader V M Sudheeran who took the lead political role in campaigning and striving hard to make God's own country free from liquor and other drugs, was not backed (even opposed and isolated) by some of his own party colleges, his image as a hero remains unfadable in the minds of majority of people particularly the women who are experiencing the bitter effects of alcohol and other drug addictions. The Congress Party leaders' disunity and separation of V M Sudheeran may be the second major reason for its defeat.

Seeing the mass political and social support for the 'liquor restriction and minimizing policy' of the UDF Government, the LDF also made a similar campaign in tune of 'liquor abstinence policy' that gave a feeling in the people's mind that the LDF also would strive for making Kerala drugs-free in the coming years. But ever since assuming power, all the poll promises of the LDF in their liquor policy started changing quoting different reasons like revenue deficit. If liquor sale is the only means for increasing income for the state, who knows whether they will not legalize the cultivation, production and sale of ganja (marijuana) in the near future!

It is unethical and devious for the governments to slip away from  prepoll  promises after being elected and attaining power. Ever since coming to power, the LDF government's decisions taken in matters related to liquor appears as if the government is acting as an ambassador of the devil that will benefit the liquor mafia at the cost of numerous poor innocent lives of the people of God's own country. If the concerned don't realize and correct their mistakes as early as possible, time will teach them a fitting lesson that these policies are historical blunders and they may not get an opportunity again to make good their huge lose!

It is known and proved well that alcohol and other drugs are a serious threat not only to the individual but to the society as a whole, especially in countries like India. So leaders and rulers whether local or national, if they have any concern for the people or dharma, they must do whatever possible to drive away this evil not only from their locality, but also from the country even.

Sunday, January 28, 2018 Kerala's Retired Policemen's Detective Service

The bright and novel idea that formed in the brain of some retired officials of the Kerala Police and some lawyers, today gave birth to a new private investigation organization by name X-Cops in Thrissur. The new initiative is to render secret investigative services to the people and if required to the state police department. It may give an opportunity to the retired police staff to prove their mettle by unearthing mysterious and hidden crimes in the state, without any political or departmental interference. The idea is first of its kind in India and will be widely welcomed by the public. If the intention of the founders is to work honestly and truthfully and if corrupt and polluted persons are not given membership, it will create trends and be the beginning of a new era in the Indian police force.

There are many efficient and sincere personnel in the police department in India. But these days due to the pitfalls in our democracy, many a times, they are dictated and made handicapped not only by the ruling leaders or their political party members but even by their chota student wings. Such things damage the image and individuality of the police force and make it act like a puppet before the public. It is also embarrassing to see in India often highly educated and respected IAS/IPS officers in India being scolded in public by uneducated and uncivil leaders for not satisfying their personal interests. Of course, all members in the department are not fair. Their are some criminals also in police who are always a shame and curse not only to the department but to the whole society.

The people are expecting the new investigators to be 'fair, frank and fearless' and expose the numerous crimes that are kept covered by the police to protect the interests of the rulers. If more and more fair and efficient officers of all levels join this new private investigation service titled Ex-Cops and do things differently, they will become heroes in no time, not only in Kerala, but also in other parts of the country. If they remain just like the other existing so called private detective agencies that follow the engaged boys and girls for a livelihood, it will be soon forgotten...!

Kanam Rajendran is voted as Manorama Newsmaker 2017

Out of the four finalists who entered in the fray to be chosen, the state secretary of CPI, Kanam Rajendran is voted as the Manorama Newsmaker of 2017 by the viewers and other people. This was announced by the Manorama news channel on 21st January, 2018.

The selection of Kanam by the people as the newsmaker of the past year is a recognition to his individual and party's strong stand and principles not to cope-up with corruption in the government.

It is considered as a great blow to the CPM party headed by CM Pinarayi vijayan which has been facing many allegations particularly the land revenue scams and police department failures. Pinaryi Vijayan who made a good start when he came to power later gained the name as 'dothi claded Modi' because of his many steps resembling the PM style in his capacity. The government's failure to warn and inability to handle Okhi cyclone disaster was the biggest failure of the present Kerala government which has terribly damaged the CPM's image.

With the stern steps taken by CPI ministers and leaders, their personal and party image also increased in the public. On the other hand, Pinarayi and the CPM, instead of heeding to the concerns of their partners in the government and taking correctional measures, they are running after other tainted parties and individuals to keep the safe numbers to hold the government somehow and to give a warning to the CPI by teaching it a lesson.

Let such verdicts of the people open the eyes of those leaders, who after getting elected and attains power conveniently forget the promises made to the people before elections!

Congratulations to the fair, clear and transparent leaders. May the people also stop carrying leaders who do not keep up their pre poll promises.

AAM AADMI Government in Delhi Proves Government for the People!

The decision by the AAM AADMI Government led by Arvind Kejriwal and TEAM in Delhi to reach the people to render many public services at the people's door-step, has added another golden feather on their cap. With the launching of his brand new reform aimed to minimize the woes of the citizens and maximize the convenience, comfort and well-being of all the people living in Delhi state, Arvind Kejriwal has once again proved that Aam Aadmi Party's primary concern is people's welfare.

Once this new amelioration is implemented in few months, the residents living in the national capital will have the rare opportunity of bringing the required government services to their door-steps instead of queuing up in front of the government offices. The government is planning to start the scheme by providing nearly 40 services in the first phase and add about 30 services every month until most of the serves are covered. The project in the initial phase will include applying for ration card, driving licence, aadhar card new and change of address, income / caste / marriage certificates, water connections etc.

As per the plan, the government is to hire an agency that can appoint employees as 'mobile sahayks' to work with government officers who will respond to the calls from the residents and fulfill their needs.

While many state governments and even the central government introduce certain new reforms that end up as chaos, this one remains as an eye-opener for any heads of governments who make self claims and dreams to be called and considered as a real hero by the people.

The agony that the people experience in most of the government offices is not a new thing. It is not an unknown matter for the rulers. Whoever goes to any government offices for any work (even a minor one) will have to give handsome bribe (mostly fixed by the authorities) and visit the office several times and greet them to get it done. 

Despite numerous attempts by the powerful central BJP government (using most of its departments) to finish off the party which poses a threat to it, it is a wonder how the small party is surviving and performing well without the required amount of cooperation and support of the central government!

We wish any government or ruler all success, who works selflessly for the welfare of the people.

Thank you for your valuable comments:

'Demonetisation' a demonic act against India to ruin the country?

(image courtesy:
One year has passed since the worst ever economical reform of announcing the immediate and sudden ban of high value 1000 and 500 currency notes that constituted more than 85 percent of Indian bank notes, was implemented in India by prime minister Narendra Modi on November 8th, 2016.

Ever since this action of currency banning, repeated opinions favoring the decision were published by a handful of people, either a section of leaders and sympathizers belonging to the ruling party or few billionaire celebrities and business-men for whom the favor of the powerful is a must as they possess unaccounted and disproportionate wealth and are afraid of gaining the wrath of the rulers and any immediate action by their departments.

On the other hand renowned economists of international reputation like former prime minister Dr Manmohan Singh, former Reserve bank governor Dr Raghuram Rajan, Nobel Laureate and Bharat Ratna Dr Amartya Sen and many others have categorically criticized strongly Indian demonetization and have predicted it would be a huge blow to the Indian economical growth which is being experienced now.

To understand the plight of the common man today, owing to the currency ban, one need not be a scholar. If a handful of people who are subscribed to the prime minister's mobile app supports note ban, it does not mean that it is a wise step..!

Even though many attractive reasons were furnished to justify the act, as not much intended (or projected) results were attained even after one year, it is obviously proved that this act was a historical blunder. And the funniest part is that, those who are instrumental to all the economical hardships incurred on the country and caused confusion among the people are trying to 'cover' it by wasting additional funds through print and electronic media advertisements and social media publications.

There is a saying, 'ruling a country is not a child's play'. Leaders who grab highest positions by hook or crook in a country or state must be prudent and sensible while taking any decisions and must be very very careful while trying to change something that is existing. If reforms are introduced considering the welfare of the people rather than just aiming personal and parochial agendas, automatically they will bring good name and fame to the rulers. One can see how much anxiety the world population is bearing due to the selfish stands taken by some heads of states..!

Let it be understood that 'a mistake is an opportunity to learn' and 'an error does not become a mistake until one refuses to correct it'. But a mistake becomes an unforgivable grave sin when the one who committed it tries to justify it and commits more mistakes to cover it'...!
