A letter to Mr. Manohar Parrikar
Dear Mr. Manohar Parrikar
‘BJP making waves...’
OK OK, I see that too.
But most are confused, they need help, they need assurances..
BJP knows very well that it needs us and needed us very badly.
This is the chance, perhaps the last chance.
So, come on Mr. Parrikar, let’s talk business now!
(oh! No, I don’t mean cash for votes or Sops for votes)
Tell us why you think we should vote for you?
What’s there for us in it?
Or what can we expect from you in exchange
Now, now, pl don’t even try your ‘daggling carrots’ tactics
i.e. cash (Rs.1000) for women, DSSS increment, lowering petrol prices etc
Peter would not be too happy if you rob him to pay Paul
If you do decide to come back on this, besides other things, please make sure
you give us your solid assurances on these following serious and most urgent issues:
Our Goa (Special Status)
Destruction of Goa
Communal Harmony (Hindu-Christians-Muslims)
That’s all we are interested in right now, can you do it?
or can we rely on you?
The ball is in your court.
Looking forward to hear from you soon.
(for and on behalf of confused minds)
Don’t worry much about ‘Good Friday’ Holiday episode
It has never been a real public holiday to all, besides that, we also know
some Hindu Holidays too were proposed in the list such as
Mahashivratri, Dashera, Gudi Padva and Gandhi Jayanti , Statehood day etc
I believe, the proposal was only to make it optional or include it in the restricted holiday’s list where people (Govt. employee) could opt for it if so desired.
You did it to reduce the Govt Holidays and as per the Central Govt. directives.
Perhaps you could introduce 6 days a week pattern as work in Govt. dept
always behind schedule.
Govt jobs, govt holidays, restricted holidays etc discussed here
'Actions speak' they say, we have witnessed it too...
