WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC and to secure to all its citizens:
JUSTICE, social, economic and political;
LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;
EQUALITY of status and of opportunity;
and to promote among them all
FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation;
This is a part of Preamble to the Constitution of India. Every Indian, no matter poor or rich, young or old, fair or dark has to follow our Constitution. But, lately there have been major cases of people or political parties overlooking it, and creating a hocus-pocus to create their vote banks. As we can see in the case of Maharashtra, where a new generation political party is exploiting and discriminating the people which do not fit in their criteria – non marathis.
According to the head of the so called political party (I will rather name it a mafia or a local gang), people who are non – marathis (Marathi speaking people) have no right to do anything in their area. Anything means everything here- be it giving some competitive exams, or driving the local public transport and so on. One need not wonder if this gang of goons can deprive a non Marathi of a single drop of water (because he is a non - Marathi).
But one thing is common in all this and that is the target has always been a COMMONER, a common man. A common man from any other state is treated as an alien and is as unwelcomed as a pest in any household. It is just that mafia which feels that the non - marathis should not be given any food, shelter or job in their state. Why he does not ask the top shot businessmen, or the bollywood to step out of his so called Marathi state because all indulge in activities which are not specifically for the marathis. Why he doesn’t ask Mr. Amitabh Bachchan and his family to evacuate the city as they too belong to the brigade he hates? Why he does not ask the other film fraternity to move out of the city and create a bollywood somewhere else in the entire country? Why the target is only COMMMONERS? The commoners who already have to brave the situations like floods, draught, price rise, and corruption and now their right to stay anywhere in the free India is too being robbed off. Are they not BIASED IN THEIR HATRED??
Someone ask the mafia leader, will he be able to take care of the entire marathis scattered all over the country if they are forced to return to their ″Marathi speaking state″. Will he able to provide the same comfort, the same jobs, and the same level of satisfaction to the people who will be forced to return to so called ″his state″?
Till when our Govt will sit blindly ignoring all the pleas. Can’t they hear the shouts of the innocents who are being targeted in some cheap political gimmicks? Everybody is here to mend their own ways – the bigger fish hunting down the smallest fishes with the help of big fishes. It was just because to safeguard their own vote banks, the Govt didn’t take actions against the mafia at first instance of vandalism. Just to get back their standing and cover up their shortfalls, the Govt didn’t act. They let these political parties strengthen up so that it can be used in a manner they wish for. But, again the interest of the people of India is overlooked. The commoners are only approached during the voting season where even a single vote counts.
Its high time that we should stand against these politicos and don’t let our Socialist country be divided on the basis of languages we speak.
