So yesterday, the nation finally got a glimpse of how great a visionary Indira Gandhi was. Had Queen Indira not removed One Rank One Pension (OROP) for the Army in 1973, the hypocrisy of Modi govt for making veterans wait as many as 15 months to fulfil his promise would never have been exposed! Thank you Your Majesty the Queen! Now we know that Modi is not capable of solving a 42 year mess in just 1 minute. Sometimes it takes as many as 15 months! Next time, the people should surely vote Congress so that they can have the joy of waiting 42 years for their problems to be solved!
As soon as OROP was announced, Congressi Mameluks went into a tailspin. Some said that Congress should get the credit for “announcing it” in Feb 2014 with Rs 500 crore budget (as against the Rs 10,000 crore that would be needed for it). Please note therefore that if poverty is removed from the country at some point in the future, the credit will go to Queen Indira for announcing “Gareebi Hatao” in 1971! What incredible vision! Thank you, your Majesty! ABP News went crazy, did a 180 degree turn: two minutes ago, they were blaming Modi for not fulfilling OROP, as soon as OROP was announced, ABP started saying “Sarkar ka waada desh par bhari” (the govt’s promise proves costly for the nation) complaining about how Modi fulfilling his OROP promise is going to put burden on the taxpayer…ROFL!
Nevertheless, the fact that Modi govt had announced OROP made Ajai Shukla very very angry. Now, on an average day, Ajai Shukla spews venom against Modi at a rate that is perhaps higher than Rana Ayyub or Nikhil Wagle. But so far, I have desisted several times from criticizing him out of respect for his service as a Colonel in the Indian Army. After all, even if he has served 1 day in the Army, he has done more for the country than I ever have, no matter what is his political affiliation. But finally, now, he has crossed the line by posting this tweet:
Lies! Ok…ok…is this a trick statement? Manmohan Singh didn’t promise it, but his boss Sonia Gandhi sure did. In that case, you are right, we are not blaming the Dynasty’s family dog, we are blaming the Dynasty. But then Ajai Shukla said this:
Ok…now that’s just plain wrong. ON FACTS. Here is the Congress manifesto from 2004:
It’s from the internet “Way back archive”, because the Congress was smart enough to delete the 2004 manifesto from their website. But, evidently, Pappu isn’t clever enough to know how internet caches work 🙂 So, you can’t turn your back on it, Ajai Shukla. Here it is again, in case your eyesight isnt good:
Instead of eating his words like a man of honor, Ajai Shukla got even angrier and angrier and abusive:
Sir, it is truth nipping at your heels, even if it is “Modibhakt dogs” who are saying it. The facts are for everyone to see. Your claim that Congress never promised OROP is just plain wrong. Please break your “fast” now and enjoy eating your own words 🙂
PS: In the title of this post, I am not referring to Ajai Shukla as a “Dynastycrook”, again out of respect for his service in the Indian Army.
