A cross section of the people of the country and Uttarakhand in particular are badly annoyed and disenchanted over the arbitrary registration of murder charges against the major and another trooper of 10 Garhwal Rifles over the firing on the stone pelter crowd in self defence in Shopia, Kashmir by the Mehbooba Mufti led government of Jammu and Kashmir in a first ever attempt by any state police in the history of Indian Army who are tirelessly safe guarding our sensitive borders round the clock and countering the Pak sponsered terrorists hell bent upon vitiating the peaceful atmosphere of the border state and killing our Armymen, the local police and the innocents incessantly.

It’s a well known fact that several hundreds of our army Jawans, para military personels and innocent Kashmiris have fallen to the bullets of these Pak sponsored terrorists during the last several years while bravely and courageously fighting these anti national elements hell bent upon vitiating the traquil and peaceful communal fabric of J&K and the country. However, our valiant Armymen have killed hundreds of these terrorists in Kashmir and destroyed over 150 terror launch pads functioning in Pakistan in its most succesful terror strike.

These Pak sponsored terrorists have been instigating the stone pelters and local youths to act against India and the Army in the name of Jihad through Hawala financial networks and suppying them arms and ammunitions. The Army, Garhwal Rifles and other commands have been relentlessly fighting these terrorists, stone pelters and fidayeens to protect the local Kashmiris in an attempt to rid this strife torn state of these anti national elements.

While in the line of duty the Major and Jawans of 10 Garhwal Rifles were petrolling the strife torn Shophia area in Kashmir valley and were surrounded by a heavy mob of stone pelters and one of the stones’ hit the trooper, causing grievous injury. Seeing the situation going out of control and having been surrounded by the heavy crowd of stone pelters the Garhwal Rifle troopers were compelled to fire in air and self defence purely unintentionally leading to two casualties.

Sources say that had the jawans not fired in self defence their life would have been in total danger having been surrounded very closely by the stone pelting crowd. The Army spokesman said that it was purely the reflex action in self defence with no deliberate intention to harm anybody. But the Mufti Mohammed government and its police arbitrarily registered cases under murderous sections against two personels of 10 Garhwal Rifles, a first ever cowardice attempt against Armymen in India’s history. Though everyone has the sympathy for those killed in this action of self defence but the right thinking people of the country and those who know, how our patrotic Armymen by risking their lives every second in strife torn J&K and the tense borders are 24×7 gaurding our nation and safeguarding countrymen, are badly annoyed, disenchanted and furious over the arbitrary and politically motivated action of the PDP – BJP government led by Mehbooba Mufti.

The Bhartiya Janata Party has also expressed its serious concern and reservation on this issue and is trying to revoke the decision. There is overall resentment and annoyance all over the country and in Uttarakhand over this most uncalled for act against the Armymen of 10 Garhwal Rifles who are protecting our borders and fighting dreaded terrorists day and night risking their lives for our nation’s safety, security and unity.

The Indian Army is standing solidly with the Garhwal Rifles in this hour of crisis and has taken a stand that the firing was entirely in self defence and the situation warranted so. It may be recalled that the Indian Army stood solidly behind Major Lithul Gogoi also last year who tied one of the local Kashmiri youth, stone pelter over his Jeep’s bonnet and petrolled the area which was full of stone pelters. There was tremendous hue and cry all over India, particularly in Kashmir but the Army patted the Major and felicitated him with honours. The case of 10 Garhwal Rifles is now under the charge of the Deputy collector and its being said that an indepth impartial enquiry would be conducted in the matter expeditiously and all the cocerned parties would be heard before arriving at the final verdict.
According to eminent literateur, poet and linguist of Uttarakhand Dr. Satish Kaleshwari: It is shameful act. The Garhwal Rifles is the glory and honour of Indian Army. Discouraging Major Aditya with his ten brave soldiers is insult of the Indian Army. Jai Badri Vishal.

The Gandhi family scion and the youngest president of the 131 year old party Rahul Gandhi was today morning seen gosipping smilingly with the party leader and former union minister Ghulam Nabi Azad sitting in the designated sixth row as a commoner, hardly being noticed except for the fact that the television cameras’ of several channels’ were kind enough to focus their cameras on him at few intervals thus making sure that how a young leader of the party that ruled India for more than six decades have been made the back bencher despite the fact that her mother Sonia Gandhi and even the then leader of the opposition Lal Krishna Advani had usually been given the front row seats in earlier republic day functions including the party chief Amit Shah since 2014.

The Congress Party has taken a serious view of this alleged deliberate lapse and termed it an intentional attempt by the ruling party to belittle his image and reputation as the leader of biggest opposition party in parliament and the president of the Congress party as well.

There have been lot of hue and cry on this issue but the Congress party chief despite issuing any negative statement on this arbitrary seating arrangement preferrred to go their early in the morning and sit calmly alongwith his party colleague Ghulam Nabi Azad watching the entire parade of the 69th Republic Day celebration at Rajpath. However, the Congress Party has officially not made it an issue but those speaking behind the camera and on the condition of being anonymous say that this practice amounts to cheap tactics to belittle or degrade the image of the leader of a party that ruled the nation for so many decades and is a main opposition party of the country.

As per the news reports pouring in the ministry of defence responsible for making seating arrangements also denied objections of the Congress party saying that every norm and protocol has been obeyed in this regard and no indecent or arbitrary attitude has been taken in allocating the seat to Rahul Gandhi.

Every arrangement has been made as per norms, rules and regulations. Even the leader of the opposition (LoP) is placed behind several dignitaries and at present there is no LoP in the Lok Sabha due to a lack of numbers added the defence ministry sources.

The Congress leader emphatically say that if the president of the ruling party BJP Amit Shah can sit in the front row in Republic Day functions since the party came to power in 2014 giving seat in the fourth row to the leader and president of the main opposition party is a clear move to belittle his image and amounts to cheap politics. What makes the issue more serious is the fact that first Rahul Gandhi was allotted the seat in the fourth row and was later on changed to sixth row on the pretext that it was the SPG looking after the Congress president’s safety which has asked to do so. But the Congress leader and spokesman has serious reservation on this. In a tweet Randeep Singh Surjewal said: MODI SARKAAR KI OCHI RAAJNEETI JAGJAAHIR
Desh ke gantantra ke parv ke mauke par AHANKARI SHASAKON NE CONGRESS ADHYAKSH RAHUL GANDHI KO CHAUTHI SEAT SE HATHAKAR JAANBUJHKAR CHATEEN KATAAR MEIN BAITHAYA

lekin hamaare liye gantantr ka parv hi sarvopari hai

The middle class people of the country are actually the opinon makers and their influence of support to any political party or political conglomeration play a vital role to influence the majority of electorates all over the country, especially in the urban and suburban classes of the society. Whether it was the victory of the Congress or Congress led UPA that ruled India for six decades or so or the BJP or BJP led NDA which is currently on the political saddle at the centre and several states of the country, the role and support of the middle class was always significant.

Whether they are the government servants, those working corporates, media, advocates, traders and in various other sectors hail from this class and play a vital role in shaping the destiny of the country as well as the political parties as they are the ones’ who are very much the part and parcel rather the backbone of the government and the system that actually delivers. If they are happy and pleased they work as a catalytic agent for a party in power and if they become annoyed they take no time to dethrone those whom they have helped climb the saddle of political and administrative power.

When prime minister Narendra Modi reached the top echelons of power it was the same middle class which dethroned the scam ridden Congress that was in power at the centre for ten long years. Not only did they made widespread favourable opinion and political climate for BJP and Modi, nationally, while being functional in various wings of the government and private sector but also ensured that the previous Congress led UPA is wiped out of power from the roots. And BJP led NDA under Narendra Modi’s charismatic leadership acknowledged more than absolute majority for five years.

The middle class is a class that believes in comforts, promotions, remunerations, monetory benefits n a hassle free standarised life with limited and fixed income. If its budget is disturbed or the growth rate comes down affecting their comfortable life style it gets imbalanced and annoyed. This class is hardly concerned or bothered about the political developments of the country may it be the issue of cow vigilantism, farmers suicides, child or women trafficking or political upheavals for power. It’s merely concerned that their lifestyle and level of sustenance is not disturbed.

But today this opinion maker class is badly disturbed as during the last three years not only has their standard of living come down due to inflationary pressures and hike in petroleum products but the foreign investment and private sector investments have also not shown the desired results. After demonetisation this class seems to have been worstly affected as medium and small business has witnessed the lowest ebb due to money crunch and low level employees heading for their respective hometowns.

The demand and purchasing power has badly come down. The crude oil despite being cheap in international market has no impact on petro pruducts with prices of petrol and diesal still going high. The government is busy levying the central excise and state taxes on petroleum products to cover its losses and keep the economy buoyant thus burdening the already burdened middle and lower middle class(es). It is believed that the government levies the excise and state taxes of more than a lakh crores on petro products.

It is obvious that this increase will further inflate the fares of transportation which will adversely impact the prices of vegetables, food stuffs and essential commodities. The introduction of complicated GST have further brought small and medium business to standstill at least for another few months till the situation improves or stabilizes. The energy and the speed with which the traditional middle class voters were given assurances of ACHE DIN are literally fading out with Indian GDP growth also at its lowest of 5.7% since the last six quarters.

While unmindful of his traditional vote bank Modiji is largely concentrating on the poor sections which is indeed a good sign of his well planned strategy but by leaving the middle class in the lurch he is undoubtedly taking a huge risk as 2019 is not far. And the middle class though less in number is effective enough to widely transfer and spread, rather trickle their anger and annoyance among the common masses, expeditiously. What do you say friends?
