A few days ago, these were the same people who were thrilled to relax and watch as the AAP-Cong-Paki campaign went into top gear, attacking Narendra Modi for “inaction” on Pakistan. The campaign was furious on social media, on mainstream media and certainly on the campaign trail. The attacks from the Opposition were vicious, demanding to see evidence of the legendary 56 inch chest.
And then Pakistan got its teeth kicked in. For a day or so, the establishment in Delhi shivered, suddenly aware that there is a new sheriff in town. Perhaps, in the last 2.5 years since the shock of May 2014, the establishment had convinced itself that nothing could ever change. And then Modi sprang a coup across the LoC. As the nation applauded, the dalals in Dilli shivered.
Officially, they had no option but to go along tamely with the Prime Minister’s decision and heaping praise on the action of the military. But the backroom channels have been activated. The people who were happily taunting “bhakts” during Pathankot and Uri are now suddenly singing paeans to peace.
Oh ho! Mahatma Gandhi to the rescue? Where was this Gandhi bhakti when you were tweeting “interesting” observations on Pathankot, Agent Ayyub? You kept taunting the lion thinking it will never wake up. Now that the lion has woken up with a terrifying roar, you have suddenly remembered “peace”. How convenient.
Ah ha! That’s the second layer of the Queen’s strategy. Get friends in the media to start saying that the surgical strike across the LoC is part of the BJP’s election strategy. You know what…I’m okay with that. If you guys want it that way, so be it. If BJP is striking at terrorists in Pakistan in the hope of winning in elections, I’m fine with it. At least it is trying to earn a victory by doing some good for the country. It’s a lot better than the Congress party’s strategy of keeping quiet and blaming RSS for 26/11 attacks in order to keep its peaceful vote intact before the election, no?
And here is another layer of the strategy
Yeah, right. UPA also carried out surgical strikes, but we are supposed to believe it did not do any “chest thumping”. Really? If you really did this, why was there no chest thumping? Are we supposed to believe that Congress party was too humble and shy to take credit for the surgical strikes? Is there any evidence of Congress being similarly shy of taking credit in other spheres? Even today, the loser named Rahul Gandhi goes around telling people that they have smartphones only because of “Rajiv Gandhi’s dreams”. Walk one mile in any part of India of your choosing and just see how many buildings, big and small are named after the Dynasty. Does it seem like the Congress has been historically shy to claim credit for things?
Open a history book that is taught in school. Does it seem like the Dynasty has been shy of claiming credit for everything good that might have happened in India in the last 100 years?
Ha! And suddenly today Mr. P Chidambaram comes to us with the fantastic claim that UPA dared to cross the LoC and kick Pakistan in the teeth, but humble Dynasty refused to take credit. Ha! Ya…nice work Chiddu, because we were all born yesterday, weren’t we? Do you think we all have the same IQ as Rahul Gandhi?
So, if UPA indeed had carried out a strike across the border, they were under some compulsion to keep it hidden. Tell us Chiddu what the compulsion was: domestic votes or certain foreign loyalties?
So, friends, liberals and countrymen…I welcome you to the new Modi era. Does it seem unfair that Modi is getting so much credit for one strike across the border? You bet it does. It’s your fault, dear Dynasty. If you had not focussed so much on increasing the size of your scams and instead tried to unleash India’s power in the 57 years of your rule, we would have been a superpower today. Such “surgical strikes” would be commonplace events if you had given a chance to the nation to realize its potential. You had all the opportunity in the world. Instead you were focussed on robbing us blind and keeping the country weak and backward so it would continue to elect your kids and their kids after them. And now suddenly when a son of Bharat emerges and gives the world a small trailer of what India can really do, you have come to whine. Well, whine away…
