Yashwant Sinha's exemplary courage and patriotism

By questioning his own party's government and its powerful people for their willful wrong acts leading to nation's economic distress and state of joblessness, Yashwant Sinha not only exhibited exemplary courage but also demonstrated that he is real patriot.
  • He has put nation above the party's interests.
  • He has rightly said that while many in BJP agree with him but are afraid to speak out.
  • Needless to say Modi & co has systematically subverted national media, barring few, only to do 'praising' even for his 'worst acts'.
  • In social media, BJP's troll brigade ensures all false stories praising Modi all the times and spreading falsehoods on Congress especially Rahul Gandhi.
  • Yashwant Sinha might not be saint of all times, he joined the elite club of very few who dared to question powerful rogues. Kudos.
  • At his age 80+, no question of any ambitions or aspersions. Even if any, still his acts valiant are appreciable.
  • But for the truthfulness of Yashwant Sinha's remarks, the resistance offered by his son and Modi's minister Jayant Sinha that all is well, faded away. 
  • While Jaitley's response was unbecoming of his qualifications and position he his holding i.e. FM and Modi as PM was compelled to give a lengthy 90 minute reply quoting all unconnected things that everything will be fine in future, which any will be.
  • Instead of blaming FM Jaitley alone for all the economic ills of today, Yashwant Sinha would have blamed PM Modi as well. In fact Modi's responsibility is much bigger than Jaitley's in this matter or in any other matter given the fact that nothing moves in Delhi without instruction from PMO.
  • Some accuse that he is speaking up is settling of grouse against the PM, FM and BJP president. Even if it is true, what Yashwant Sinha has done is in the best interests of the nation.
  • Finally it is better to accept that Yashwant Sinha is driven with the passion to save India’s economic misfortune exhibiting exemplary courage to stand up and point out not compromising on ideals and spoke what he believed as truth.
  • If Modi has any sense, he should accept truth as truth and appoint an expert panel to suggest ways & means for economic recovery in the shortest possible time frame in the best interest of nation and its Aam Admi and Kisan.
  • Finally, the mess created by Modi and Jaitley with demonetization and mangled GST roll out without adequate preparation resulting in GDP growth falling for six consecutive quarters, joblessness etc is likely to stay and normalization is at least 4-5 years away.

You cannot fool all the people all the time ... Abraham Lincoln
I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, 
and part with him when he goes wrong ... Abraham Lincoln

In 2004, BJP's Vajpayee govt lost polls for following Congress model of ruling the nation with arrogance. LK Advani’s advice to attack issues and not people because “speaking on persons and then bypassing the issues is something which is very easily done” was forgotten by all. Today Modi is doing exactly the same. Jaitley missed an opportunity to accept the fact that GDP growth has fallen for six successive quarters and explain reasons and remedies being implemented and solicit suggestions. This would have effectively disarmed and silenced critics. He should have answered all issues raised, point by point. How far he will run away from truth?  Jaitley attacking Yashwant Sinha is height of insanity. Of course Modi often does it on Rahul Gandhi and Manmohan Singh even in parliament ignoring the issues. Very soon Modi's ratings will fall below that of Rahul Gandhi and that surprises no one. If PM and FM tells lies to people of India all the times, they are unfit to stay in their positions any more.
